1st thought:

The day of the Lord isn't 24 hrs. It is 1000 years!

2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Psalm 90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

Zephaniah 2:3 In the day of the LORD'S anger

Zechariah 14:1-2
1 The day of the LORD cometh spoil shall be divided

2 I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle & the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

Scripture on - Day of the Lord: Synopsis
Man humbled, Battle, indignation, destruction, vengeance, the sword shall devour, destruction, great & very terrible, darkness, mighty man shall cry bitterly, a day of wrath, a day of trouble, distress, wasteness, desolation, gloominess, anger, houses rifled, women ravished

Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ

Do the 12 posted scriptures on: The Day of the Lord, sound like it's a blessed hope?

Day of Christ - Verse highlights:
Thess 1:1 Thes is written to the body of Christ (Believers) in Thessalonica.

2 Thess 2:
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand

(NOTE: Verse 1: Believers, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ where we are gathered to/by Christ

Verse 2: Believers, be at peace, "the day of Christ" is near)

Phil 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
(Day of Christ)

Phil 1:10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;
(Day of Christ)

Phil 2:16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.
(Day of Christ - I didn't see anything to rejoice about in the 12 scriptures posted on the Day of the Lord)

The Day of Christ: Is whrn The Body of Christ/Believers/Church, WILL REJOICE!.

The Day of Christ is the Catching-up of: The Body of Christ/Believers/Church
1 Thess 4:16 The Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel & with the trump of God: the dead in Christ shall rise first

17 Then we which are alive & remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: so shall we ever be with the Lord

18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words

When the terrible fearful Day of the Lord comes. The Body of Christ/Believers/Church, ARE ALREADY WITH HIM!)

Zec 14:5 On that day His feet will stand on Mt Olive. The Mt will split in 2 from east to west. Then the Lord your God will come, & "all the saints with Him"
(NOTE: Believers are WITH him!" These are the caught-up/raptured, body of Christ/the Church)

Jude 14 Behold, the Lord "cometh" with 10 thousands of his saints
(NOTE: The caught-up/raptured saints are WITH him!)

1 Thessalonians 3:13 (B) "at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints"
(NOTE: When Christ physically returns The caught-up/raptured saints are WITH him!)

Believers, Let not your heart be troubled:
John 14:1 Jesus said; Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2 (B) I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Believers, rejoice, comfort each other, becaused the promised blessed hope - Titus 2:13. The Day of Christ, will soon be our reality!

Final thought:

The unsaved will at the White Throne Judgment Rev 20 (No Believers here) pay for every sin they committed under the law's rules.

The saved will stand at the judgment seat (Greek-bema) of Christ (Rom 14:10-12, 1 Cor 3:10-4:5 & 2 Corinthians 5:1-10.) No sin is discussed here. Christ's sin redemptive payment paid/washed ALL the believers sins away.

The work done in Christ's name during the SANCTIFICA'TION process is discussed here. And rewards are given (even a drink of water Matt 10:42 Mk 9:41 given in Christ's name receives a reward). Also see 1 Cor 3:12-23
