A great day is upon us, THE DAY OF THE LORD”
The day described in Isa 2:6-22 (see below for verses) when God will be exalted and every high thing will be cast down, idolatrous men will be enlightened and throw away their idols, and have a fear of the Lord; “flee to caves …and holes in the ground from the dread of the Lord and the splendour of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth.” (Isa.2:19).
That “Day of the Lord” is not just one day, it is a series of events that will affirm the end is nigh, it is a declaration of “Babylon is fallen” and Matthew 24 end of the age events.
Brethren, we are living in the “thick” of “the Day of the Lord” now… The Coming of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords is very near!
“Stop trusting in man, who has but a breath in his nostrils. Of what account is he?” (Isa. 2:22).
Are we trusting in man or God? Are we ready for when Christ comes? Are we preparing the Saints to be ready? Time for us to examine our hearts before God seriously.
The Day of the Lord (Isa. 2:6-22KJV)
6Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and [are] soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.
7Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither [is there any] end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither [is there any] end of their chariots:
8Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:
9And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.
10Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.
11The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
12For 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:
13And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, [that are] high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,
14And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills [that are] lifted up,
15And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall,
16And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures.
17And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
18And the idols he shall utterly abolish.
19And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
20In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made [each one] for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;
21To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
22Cease ye from man, whose breath [is] in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?
