The Old Testament prophets told of a coming day of the Lord. We live in that day.
The day of the Lord was to be a time of judgment and glory. The glory was of God. The judgment was for sin. The day of the Lord would mean goodness and glory for the righteous, but terror and devastation for the unrighteous. (See Malachi 4 for a picture of the contrast.)
Search the Scriptures for other references to the day of the Lord. There are at least two dozen of them.
Jesus made clear that He came to bring a sword that would divide (Matthew 10:34).
There are those longing for the day of the Lord who do not know that it has already come upon them (Amos 5:18).
Repent and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ for there is salvation in no one and nothing else (Acts 4:12). All who seek Him will find Him and all who believe in Him will experience refreshment of their souls (John 7:37-38; Matthew 11:28-30)
