24/04/2015 | THE DAY OF THE LORD – Brother Ransome | ROR Daily Devotional … We Bless The Day!

The Scriptures indicate that “the day of the Lord” will come quickly, like a thief in the night and therefore Christians must be watchful and ready for the coming of Christ at any moment. Besides being a time of judgment, it will also be a time of salvation as God will deliver the remnant of Israel, fulfilling His promise that “all of Israel will be saved forgiving their sins and restoring His chosen people to the land He promised to Abraham.

The final outcome of the day of the Lord will be that “the arrogance of man will be brought low and the pride of men humbled; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day” (Isaiah 2:17). The ultimate or final fulfillment of the prophecies concerning the day of the Lord will come at the end of history when God, with wondrous power, will punish evil and fulfill all His promises.

The New Testament calls it a day of “wrath,” a day of “visitation,” and the “great day of God Almighty” (and refers to a still future fulfillment when God’s wrath is poured out on unbelieving Israel and on the unbelieving world. The phrase “day of the Lord” usually identifies events that take place at the end of history (Isaiah 7:18-25) and is often closely associated with the phrase “that day.”

One key to understanding these phrases is to note that they always identify a span of time during which God personally intervenes in history, directly or indirectly, to accomplish some specific aspect His plan. The day of the Lord or “That Day” reveals the plan of God for man, His program for nations or the Church! The Lord also connotes the day of blessing, the day of release of God’s grace and abundant supply.

Don’t wait for the day of terror; don’t have a consciousness for the day of troubles and affliction. Don’t proclaim and announce or tag a day as evil, every day is a blessing; every day is a day of the Lord, not only on Sundays or Sabbath days. This is “That Day”, the day of your visitation and prosperity. This is the day that Lord has made and we shall rejoice in it. I BLESS THE DAY, YOU BLESS THE DAY, AND WE BLESS THE DAY.
