Seeing the Day approaching.



`Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God,

  • Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
  • Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.
  • Let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the coming together, (in 2`a & 3`s) as the manner of some, but exhorting (encouraging and warning) one another, and so much the more as you SEE THE DAY APPROACHING.` (Heb. 10: 19 - 25)


I believe the Lord, the Head of His Body is building and maturing us. (Eph. 4: 13) And by His Holy Spirit He is revealing the times we are living in, as very close to His gathering His Body to go to its eternal home in glory.

Here are the main areas of the `Day` I see `approaching.`

  • Lawlessness abounding. (2 Thess. 2: 7)
  • The forming of the final Gentile Global Government. (Rev. 13)
  • The World Economic collapse. (Rev. 6: 5 & 6)
  • The Russian Federation on the move. (Joel 2 & Ez. 38)
  • The Islamic power, ready to arise. (Dan. 7: 7, 23)


So all the `let us` `s of Hebrew 10 give us good direction as to what we should be doing in these momentous times.

100% agree. We can perceive the groundwork being laid for the introduction of the antichrist coming in at a time the world is in chaos, which it's headed. Thank God we won't be here. But now's the time to really pray for and teach our loved ones, as well as others, about their salvation so they don't get left behind🙏🙏🙏

I agree with you TabinRivCA, and apparently, so did Spurgeon, who said,

To be honest, the first part of your Post was a pleasing read being that it is here on the BDF. I enjoyed it. The second part just returned us to the usual BDF stuff. Still, you had a wonderful first part...... God bless

Hi p,

What is BDF stuff? And why is what I posted in the second part BDF stuff? Can you refute what I have said? It is easy to say `stuff,` but harder to explain why you believe it is not true. That is why we have a discussion.

There are various interpretations by various commentators, but since the Olivet Discourse speaks of the Second Coming of Christ "with power and great glory", that "day" probably refers to the day of His Second Coming.

The day of the Resurrection/Rapture was regarded as "imminent" -- unexpected and unannounced -- but the day of the Second Coming would be preceded by various events. And we are certainly living at a time which would firstly lead to the reign of the Antichrist, and that would be followed by the Second Coming.

Yes Nehemiah, there are a few Days mentioned in God`s word.

1. The Day of Christ. The Lord building and maturing His Body.
2. The Day of the LORD, (God Almighty for judgment on the nations and deliverance of Israel)
3. The Day of God. When all things are made new.

Note the word Day in Greek refers to a time period and also a specific day. Thus we see there is a time period for the Day of the Lord and also the specific Day when the Lord returns in power and great glory, as you so rightly said.

Christ is the lord and God

For instance these two references are referring to the same day of the end of this creation

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”
‭‭2 Peter‬ ‭3:10-13‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Day of the lord , day of God is the day of Christ upon his return some will experience this that day

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭4:16-17‬ ‭

The same event others who didn’t believe will experience this

“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”
‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:2-3‬ ‭KJV‬‬

the escape happens instantly before that many are saved and caught up with the lord in the air the dead and living who belong to him , the rest are left and destroyed with fire the difference is those who see the light of truth and those who reject it

“But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.”
‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:4-10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

his return will divide the light from the darkness the saved from the lost , the righteous from the wicked what we experience will be determined by whether we believed and acted like it either terrible destruction , or eternal salvation that one and only day of Christ , the lord our God

The Day of the LORD is a period of time for divine judgments. However the day of Christ's Second Coming is a 24-hour day. And that is what Paul was speaking about when he said "seeing the day approaching".

  • The World Economic collapse. (Rev. 6: 5 & 6)
  • The Russian Federation on the move. (Joel 2 & Ez. 38)

What are your thoughts?
To be honest, I'm flat out trying to get my present house in order rather than worrying about what time in the life of the world we are at.
