WE ARE visibly heading into the events described in Scripture as “the day of the Lord”. Jesus is soon to come again, this time in the clouds of heaven, with the holy angels. However, before His visible coming, there is to be a preliminary upheaval of events described in Daniel 12:1 as “a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time”.
Although believers look forward to the coming of Jesus to take them home to heaven, God does not want them to be under any false impression as to the circumstances surrounding that event. In Amos 5:18, 20, He says, “Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light. … even very dark, and no brightness in it”. In the context of these verses He describes the doleful experience, and throughout Scripture, details are given of that time.
It is the design of this first section of the lessons on the day of the Lord to provide the insights from God into the details of the circumstances of that time. Thus, by being enlightened, we will understand and not be surprised by the events. Inspiration makes a point of this, stating that,
“Great pains should be taken to keep this subject before the people. The solemn fact is to be kept not only before the people of the world, but before our own churches also, that the day of the Lord will come suddenly, unexpectedly. The fearful warning of the prophecy is addressed to every soul. Let no one feel that he is secure from the danger of being surprised.” —Fundamentals of Christian Education, p. 335.
“We are standing on the threshold of the crisis of the ages. In quick succession the judgments of God will follow one another–fire, and flood, and earthquake, with war and bloodshed. We are not to be surprised at this time by events both great and decisive; for the angel of mercy cannot remain much longer to shelter the impenitent.” —Prophets and Kings, p. 278.
Let us study diligently and so be well informed to continue into the second section of the lessons and thereby be well prepared.
