The Complete Guide To the Day of the LORD

death reaps souls

It has been almost three years since we published an article about the ‘day of the LORD’ (The Bible’s VERY Specific Descriptions of the Day of the LORD).

With that in mind, we decided to put together a comprehensive guide about what God’s Word has to say about the day of the LORD.

There are 31 Bible verses which mention ‘day of the LORD.’

26 from the Old Testament.

5 from the New Testament.

Perhaps the reader would like to have a handy reference on that term?

There are also 15 ETPR articles on the subject.  They appear at the end.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
