The Church in Elk Rapia
"Day of the Lord"
Due to a computer crash we were unable to record the sermon this week. We are sorry for any inconveniences this may cause. We hope to have next weeks sermon up as normal.
A) Hope to Judgement
I. Indicates that the Day of the Lord is a different subject from the Rapture of the Church
B) People to Times
I. "Times & Seasons" - found 3 times in the bible & refers primarily to God's plans for Israel
2. The Concept of the Event
Day of the Lord:
I. mentioned 19 times in Old Testament and 4 times in New Testament
II. Scripture 3 times calls the Day of the Lord the "day of vengeance"
Isaiah 13:9-11 KJV
Joel 2:28-32 KJV
Zephaniah 1:14-18 KJV
Zephaniah 3:14-15 KJV
A. Thief in the night: Suddenly, Unexpectedly, Unwelcome, Harmfully - a shock to non-followers
A. Peace & Safety -> being prophesied
B. Sudden Destruction -> not destruction of being but of well being, it will come suddenly
