for the Home
the Day of the Lord
*** What is
the character of the “day of the Lord?”
“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. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and
distress.” Zeph. 1:14, 15.
which of the seven seals does this time of wrath begin?
“And I beheld when He had opened the sixth seal.” “for
the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” Rev. 6:12, 17.
*** What signs
were to appear in the heavens under this seal?
“The sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became
as blood; and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree
casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.” Rev. 6:12, 13.
*** What great
events were these signs to precede?
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be
darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall
from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken; and then
shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven; and then shall all
the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming
in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” Matt. 24:29, 30.
which of the seven seals will the Lord come to earth?
“And when He had opened the seventh seal, there was
silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.” Rev. 8:1.
*** How is the
wrath of the day of the Lord to be manifested?
“And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven
angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the
wrath of God.” Rev. 15:1.
*** Are the
most of these plagues to be poured out before the Lord comes?
“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great
river Euphrates... Behold, I come as a thief: Blessed is he that
watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his
shame.” Rev. 16:12-15.
*** What great
event will take place at His coming?
“For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead
in Christ shall rise first.” 1 Thess. 4:16.
*** How long
after the righteous will the wicked be raised to life?
“And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the
rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were
finished. This is the first resurrection.” Rev. 20:4, 5.
*** When the
wicked come up again on the earth, what will they be incited to do?
“And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed
out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in
the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together
to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.” Rev. 20:7, 8.
*** What will
then take place?
“And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the
camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from
God out of heaven, and devoured them.” Rev. 20:9.
*** What is
this lake of fire called?
“The lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the
second death.” Rev. 21:8.
*** To what
are the present heavens and earth reserved?
“But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word
are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and
perdition of ungodly men.” 2 Peter 3:7.
*** But will
the day of the Lord reach to, and include, the burning of the earth?
“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in
the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise. and the
elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also; and the works
that are therein shall be burned up.” 2 Peter 3:10.
