Title: "Distinction between Day of the Lord and Great and Terrible Day of the Lord"

"Distinction between Day of the Lord and Great and Terrible Day of the Lord"

It occurs just slightly prior to the beginning of Daniels 70th week.
The Day of the Lord begins with ezekial 38;18-20 which matches perfectly with Revelation 6;14-17 and Isaiah 2;19, and Joel 2
Actually it is this prophecy of every mountain and wall shall fall to the ground, that results in the dome of the rock being destroyed and the third temple is built.
Considering that Israel's immediate(inner ring) arab neighbors were defeated (Isaiah 17;1/Psalms 83) and the Lord of all creation had wiped out Israels enemies in the Ezekial; 38 prophecy(outter ring),...logic dictates that there would not be any islamic nations to object to Israel in building a third temple.
When the Great and terrible Day of the Lord begins, begins when the A.O.D. begins. Anytime there is a word change of description, there is a reason for it.The Lord even made a distinction of the first and second half of Daniels 70th week by calling the second half "The Great Tribulation"
In the first half of Daniels 70th week, the Great multitude, the two witnesses and the 144,000 will be able to witness and bring many to the Lord in the first half "UNOBSTRUCTED"(The multitude,two witnesses, and 144,000 are all classified as "Saints")
The reason for this is because permission to war and prevail against the saints is not granted to the beast until the A.O.D. begins and the Beast is also granted to continue for 42 months Revelation 13;5-7.
Malachi 4:5 is clear that the Lord will send Elijah........"before"......... the Great and terrible Day of the Lord. Therefore the two witnesses begin their ministry in the first half of Daniels 70th week.
I Believe Enoch and Elijah will die their death as it is appointed for man to die once (O.T.Saints before the Cross) ,....when the A.O.D. begins.(Take notice that it was at the midpoint of Daniels 70 week that the Beast, Rev 13;5-7)is granted to prevail and not before.

The Day of the Lord begins with Ezekial 38;18-20,Revelation 6;14-17, Isaiah 2;19, and Joel 2......and it continues until the A.O.D. begins.
When the A.O.D. begins that is when the Great Tribulation begins also known as The Great and terrible Day of the lord.("Before" meaning as in the first half of Daniels 70th week).

Before Ezekial 38 can come to pass,..a time of normal life must be present such as marrying and giving in marriage and drinking , as in the days of Noah. Ezekial 38 describes Israel dwelling in safety and not expecting an attack, for that matter the world was even surprise that this attack to place as is described in Ezekial 38.(Ezekiel 38;11-14)

It is the Prophecy of Isaiah 17;1/Psalms 83 combo that results in Israel in belleving she is dwelling safely. Israel will gain more territory from her immediate arab neighbors in keeping with the promise of a certain amount of land promised to Abraham's descendents by the Lord.
So in a nutshell,..Even though technically, the rapture can happen any moment, is my opinion that it will occur just slightly prior to Ezekial 38.
The Ancient Jewish wedding as a shadow type, suggests that the Bride will only be in heaven for 7 years and then the lord will return in His physical second return to rule and reign for a thousand years.

So it is believed that the beginning of the generation that would not pass away until all these things came to pass, which includes the A.O.D. and the Second Physical coming of the Lord, began with the birth of Israel as a nation in May 14,1948.
So the question is asked,.."How long is a generation"?
Psalms 90;10 indicates that it is 70 years but could be as long as 80 years.
But we have sign post's along the way.and the Lord made it clear that the Bride would not be cought by surprise, that we would perceive the general time era of when we would be caught up to meet the Lord in the air(1 Thessalonians 5;4)

It is very obvious today that Isaiah 17;1/Psalms 83 prophecy could happen any day.

Hello Brother Benny,

Please feel free to put posts like this in the Bible Prophecy area. I want to help out some of the readers with your abbreviation "A.O.D." = Abomination Of Desolation. As for agreement, I think you would be surprised on how much many will agree with you.

Love In Christ,
