The Day of the Lord
What is the Day of the Lord?
The Day of the Lord (DOTL) is the secret plan, designed from the creation of the world, which will end this age with cataclysmic events, usher in the Messianic age and put everything under Messiah's control. This plan, hidden in the truths of God's revelation to man, will be discovered and put into effect when the time is ripe . Like a cut diamond it has many facets to it, many parallel plots and purposes. All of these events will serve to implement profound transformations in individuals and the insitutions of man. They are designed to do that. To reveal hidden character and motivations, to test and disclose the real nature of one's relationship to God - whether King, servant or rebel. It is a plan based on wisdom not power. The enimies of God will be defeated by the exercise of truth rather than the discharge of might.
