Chart: The Day of the Lord
(Excerpts from This Side of the Whirlwind)
The following list of expressions illustrates some of these events that pertain to the sun, moon, and stars being darkened and the Day of the Lord or the Latter Days. By examining such areas of scripture openly and honestly, one can achieve a better understanding of how God intends for these sections, phrases, and events to interrelate.
The Day of the Lord Compilation and Criteria Chart
Compiled from “The Day of the Lord” chart, a Compilation and Criteria Chart has been assembled to illustrate the significant connections and frequency of occurrences between the sun, moon, and stars darkened (number 13) and the Day of the Lord or Day of Christ mentioned (number 14) and several other related scriptural End Times expressions. The chart illustrates how frequently a cross-comparison connects the same twenty-six sections of scripture with other common End Times expressions as found within the Day of the Lord Chart. The connectivity between the sun, moon, and stars; the Day of the Lord; and the other common expressions creates an image of God’s plan that is hard to ignore.
17 of 26 expressions include the Second Advent or the End of Days #10
15 out of 26 instances indicate great destruction comes from the Lord #15
13 out of 26 occurrences record a great sorrow filling the world #18
13 scriptures out of 26 refer to the Second Coming of Christ #7
12 out of 26 scriptures call for judgment from God #37
11 out of 26 times great death is predicted to follow #16
10 out of 26 times people are scattered or fleeing for their lives #22
10 listings of 26 indicate people’s hearts will fail them for fear #39
9 times out of 26 massive earthquakes moved mountains and/or islands #20
If the Bible was simply written by men, such connectivity between unrelated sections of scripture would be fantastic. However, the presence of such widespread connectivity within unrelated sections of scripture suggests a semblance of collaboration from the divine, God’s hands at work. Bear in mind, the Bible is comprised of 66 books written by 40 authors over a span of thousands of years. Such diverse authors, eras and text demonstrates God’s omniscience and reveals to His people another portion of His plan for the Great Consummation during the Latter Days. As His children discover the relationships between these and other sections of End Times scriptures, we are able to glean a better understanding of God’s overall message, purpose, and plans for the Latter Days. What was hidden is now being revealed.
The beginning of the Day of the Lord is the day of the Second Coming of Christ and the day of the Rapture. The Body of Christ will be here during the tribulation portion of the Great Consummation. However, Christians will not be on earth during the Wrath of God. It is true the Wrath will take place during a portion of the Great Consummation, but it is not true the saints will endure even a moment of God’s Wrath.
Isn’t God good!
