Day of the LORD

Isa 2:12  For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

Stripes on the Rock of Ages.

 The Day the Lord Jesus came was 33 years and ended by his rejection by the religious leaders. His back striped with whipping, a crown of thorns on his head. He was nailed to a cross, his blood shed for our healing, body and soul and spirit. He paid the price for our redemption and salvation.

The prophets spoke of a Day of the LORD, warning a backslidden and idolatrous Israel to repent, for God would send in Assyria and then the Chaldeans to remove them from their land. It was a time of judgement.

Joel 1:15  Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.

 Amo 5:18  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. 

Isa 10:3  And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory? 

The Day of the LORD is a terrible time of judgement for those who reject the God of Israel and their Messiah. At the end of this time we live in, the wrath of God will be poured out on the wicked.

Joe 2:10  The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: 
Joe 2:11  And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it? 
Joel 2:12  Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 
Joel 2:13  And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.

Repent all of you who sin and be covered with the love of God through faith in Jesus Christ. The time of judgement is near.

Jesus is the Rock, the chief cornerstone of the Church of God.

Mat 21:42  Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? 
Mat 21:43  Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. 
Mat 21:44  And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. 

Repent for the Day of the LORD is near.
