The Coming Day of the Lord (Part 1)

The good side of that day…

“Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle.  On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south.   You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.

“On that day there will be no light, no cold or frost. It will be a unique day, without daytime or nighttime —a day known to the Lord. When evening comes, there will be light.

“On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern   sea and half to the western sea, in summer and in winter.

“The Lord will be king over the whole earth.  On that day there will be one Lord, and his name the only name.”  — Zechariah 14:3-9

What a powerful description this is!  Mountains will split and move, living water will flow, and the Lord will be seen for what He truly is – King over all things.

Also, consider the uniqueness of the day being described – what is a day without daytime or nighttime? Without light light or cold? Exactly how are we to comprehend such a thing?
