“The great day of the Lord is near;
It is near and hastens quickly.
The noise of the day of the Lord is bitter;
There the mighty men shall cry out.
That day is a day of wrath,
A day of trouble and distress,
A day of devastation and desolation,
A day of darkness and gloominess,
A day of clouds and thick darkness,
A day of trumpet and alarm
Against the fortified cities
And against the high towers.” Zephaniah 1:14-18
The day of the Lord is a Biblical term denoting a time in which God personally intervenes in history, specifically in wrath and judgment. It is generally used to mean the end of the world.
Today’s Study was written by John Walvoord. He was a member of the Dallas Theological Seminary faculty for 50 years, from 1936 to 1986. He served as president of Dallas Seminary from 1952 to 1986, and as chancellor until 2001. He continued to teach and preach until a few weeks before his death in 2002 at the age of 92.
A committed dispensationalist, the Bible was always at the heart of Dr. Walvoord’s life. His first book, The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit, was published in 1943. It was the first of more than 30 books on biblical theology and the Christian faith that he authored or co-authored over the next 60 years.
