DAY OF THE LORD...

WHAT "DAY" IS IT?

Zep 1:14 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

Isa 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

Isa 13:6 Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

Isa 13:9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

Isa 13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

Isa 13:11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
Take particulare note of how the Day of the Lord is described:
  1. will cause the mighty to cry bitterly
  2. will bring low the proud and lofty
  3. will come as destruction from the Almighty
  4. will be cruel
  5. will come with wrath and fierce anger
  6. will desolate the land
  7. will destroy sinners
  8. stars will not shine
  9. sun will be darkened
  10. moon will not shine (naturally since the sun is darkened)
  11. world will be punished for evil
  12. wicked punished for iniquity
  13. the terrible (persons) will be humbled

Next we'll see the tie between the "Day of the Lord" and phrases regarding the wrath of the Lord.
