The day of the Lord

Cristina and I were watching the Forerunner Christian Fellowship webscast this morning…and I felt led to
start reading Zephaniah. Man, my spirit came alive as the Day of the Lord
was being described. May it bless you as it blessed me to hunger for Him
and seek the fear of the Lord.
The Day of the Lord is the return of Jesus. It is one event, and He is returning to stay on the earth.
The Bible has numerous placing describing the day of the Lord.  Below is scripture from one of
the minor prophet in the Old Testament: Zephaniah.
 
1:7 “Be silent in the presence of the Lord God; for the day of the Lord is at hand,
for the Lord has prepared a sacrifice; He has invited His guests.”
1:12 “And it shall come to pass at that time I will search Jerusalem with
lamps, and will punish men whare settled in complacency, who say in their
hearts “The Lord will not do good, nor will He do evil.”
1:14 “The great day of the Lord is near; it is near and hastens quickly. The
noise of the day of the Lord is bitter; there the mighty men shall cry out.”
2:3 “Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, who have upheld His justice.
Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the
day of the Lord’s anger.
May the Lord give us grace to fast, press in, and for the holy fear of the Lord.
