Summary: Prophecy lesson on the Great Day of the Lord.

The Great Day of the Lord. Many have said from time to time,” I don’t believe that God will destroy the earth, there’s bad in the world, yes, but there’s still a lot of Good to.” “We can win the world to Christ, then He wont have to destroy it.” Fine thoughts, but it wont happen, no matter who the preacher is or how popular, they wont win this world over to Jesus. This world is on a collision course with destruction. Man has set this world on a path that’s broad and wide, a road of death, destruction, corruption and unrighteousness. Man has created for himself, churches, preachers, teachers and religions that are an abomination to God. Many people are under the misconception that Bible prophecy is for someone else far into the future, they are wrong, lets read a small article I found. [(W.P) More than a dozen lawmakers attended a congressional reception this year honoring the Rev. Sun Myung Moon in which Moon declared himself the Messiah {Jesus} and said his teachings have helped Hitler and Stalin be "reborn as new persons. "In a March 24th. ceremony in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Rep. Danny K. Davis (D-Ill.) wore white gloves and carried a pillow holding an ornate crown that was placed on Moon’s head. The Korean-born businessman and religious leader then delivered a long speech saying he was "sent to Earth . . . to save the world’s six billion people . . .. Emperors, kings and presidents . . . have declared to all Heaven and Earth that Reverend Sun Myung Moon is none other than humanity’s Savior, Messiah {Jesus}, Returning Lord and True Parent."]{This man and others have come to deceive the world} Even some of the mainline churches want to make “Allowances” for people just to have larger attendance. No matter how much the Bible cries out,” Repent!” some cry out “Compromise!” God called for Israel to come to Him and reason with Him, and He’s doing the same today. He’s calling the world to come and reason with Him but to no avail. Wanting to win this generation or even the next is a noble gesture but we have to remember that the Great and Notable day of the Lord is upon us. Zep 1:14 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, {in Hebrew and Greek, when an event is mentioned twice in the same verse it signifies great importance to be paid attention to and also signifies that it will occur twice}{This is a great warning} and hasteth greatly {is coming swiftly}{Remember that the way we count time is of no importance to God}, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. Warning after warnings have gone by the wayside, Party time is here, let us eat and drink and be marry.

Zep 1:15 That day[ is{emphasis}] a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

Zep 1:16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

Zep 1:17 And I {God} will bring distress upon men {Sorrows}, that they shall walk like blind men {To stagger to an fro}, because they have sinned against the LORD {The sins of man, they have refused Jesus as Son of God for the last time}: and their blood [Rev 16:6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.] shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. The best reference for the last part of this verse is: Rev 14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles {at an average of five foot deep}, by the space {Area} of a thousand and six hundred furlongs. [Furlong, 1/8 part of a mile, 660ft or a total of 1,056,000ft, or 200 miles.]{Approximate size of Kidron Valley}{See Valley of Megiddo, aka; Armogeddon} Jer 31:40 And the whole valley of the dead bodies, and of the ashes, and all the fields unto the brook of Kidron, unto the

corner of the horse gate toward the east, shall be holy unto the LORD {This entire area will be cleansed and declared By God to be Holy Ground.}; it shall not be plucked up, nor thrown down any more for ever. Jer 7:32 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be called Tophet[TOPHET, or TOPHETH (nsnn), the name given in 2 Kings xxiii. 10; Jer. vii. 31, to a spot in the valley of Ben Hinnom near Jerusalem where the Hebrews in the time of Ahab and Manasseh offered children to Molech and other heathen gods. Josiah " defiled" it as part of his reforming activity, and it became a place for the bestowal and destruction of refuse, and a synonym for Gehenna (Isa. xxx. 33; Jer. vii. 32).], nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter: for they shall bury in Tophet, till there be no place.
