Armageddon: Cosmic Battle of the Ages (12 of 12)
Series: The Day of the Lord and Armageddon
Joel 2:1-2; 10-11
This week is the National Day of Prayer. And certainly if ever there was ever a time when our nation needed to pray it is now, amen, because here we are with our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and we face a grave, grave situation in these places with our war on terrorism. We need to pray for our leaders, pray for our President, and pray for revival in our own land. Pray for spiritual awakening in our churches because what a difference that would make in America if our churches could come alive and if we could all work together for the glory of God to reach souls for Jesus Christ, to reach people without Him, to reach those who are less fortunate than us. And to reach out to those who have physical needs and spiritual needs with the gospel of Christ. Christ is the answer; the Word of God is the answer.
Today we come to our very last lesson on ''Armageddon: Cosmic Battle Of The Ages.'' We are going to look at ''The Day Of The Lord And Armageddon.'' How does day of the Lord apply to Armageddon? Well, the Day of the Lord is a term used in the Bible many, many times. It is used by the prophets of the Old Testament first and then it is taken up by the apostles in the New Testament. This term, ''the Day of the Lord'', is an important term. All of us need to know what the Day of the Lord is. The Old Testament prophets said the Day of the Lord is coming and the New Testament apostles said the Day of the Lord is near. They said the Day of the Lord is just around the corner; get ready for the Day of the Lord. And so we are going to look first at the Old Testament and what the Old Testament prophet Joel said about the Day of the Lord.
Now the Day of the Lord, first of all is related to the salvation of Israel as a nation, as a people. Because God has a plan for His people to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, their Messiah and King.
