The Day of the LORD
1 Thes 5
Here we go, “for such a time as this,” we begin a series of messages on The Day of the Lord. We will begin Sunday with an overview of where The Day of the Lord fits in the Biblical Worldview. This is good, informative, and useful information to know. And more than that, it calls us to engagement with our world and others.
We will not be engaging in predicting the future. We will be engaging God’s word to better know how to live now. On the scope of history, we live in the Already, But Not Yet, the time between Jesus 1st and 2nd comings. This series will give us a good understanding of ‘what time it is’ in terms of both history and what we are called to do and be in the present.
In Scripture, there are references to The Day of the Lord in almost every book of the Bible. We will take a look in this series at only a handful. May the Lord lead us. In addition to setting the framework of Biblical Worldview for this series, I will whet your appetite by taking a brief look at 1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11. See you Sunday!
