Alas for the day! For the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as destruction from the Almighty.
For nearly 6,000 years mankind has gone its own way, either ignorant of or directly rebelling against the Creator God and trampling on God’s laws. God in His patience has allowed humans free moral agency—the chance to make their own decisions and chart their own paths. But the way we have chosen, often ignoring any guidance from God, leads only to suffering and death.
Throughout the Bible God has proclaimed that a day is coming when He will step in. The Day of the Lord is the theme of much of end-time prophecy, as God will first punish then save humanity from self-destruction. The end result of the Day of the Lord will be the restoring of the Kingdom of God on the earth.
The Day of the Lord is pictured in God’s festival plan by the Feast of Trumpets (today, Sept. 17, 2012). Read more about this in the article “The Feast of Trumpets: Alarm of War, Announcement of Peace.”
