The Day Of The Lord  by Jay Meyer          January 29, 2014

Today we'll look at the seven churches in context (in the book of Revelation), the way we find them. But first lets look at Matthew 24, looking at a conversation Jesus had with his disciples.

There was a phrase used in the Old Testament about the Day of the Lord.  It was a day the Jewish people looked forward to, at least for those who were close to the Lord.  For those who were not close to the Lord, or not faithful at being His people, it was given as a warning.  So, the warning was what was going to happen in the day of the Lord, because there was judgement coming to those who were against the Lord.

There is a different phrase in the New Testament sort of similar called "The End of the Age".  Jesus came in and ushered in the Kingdom of heaven on the earth.  There is coming an end of this age where the Kingdom of Heaven is here, but only partially here.  We're still waiting for the full aspects of the Kingdom of Heaven in this age.  When we get to the end of this present age, then we will see the fullness of the Kingdom of Heaven.  We will see a new heaven and a new earth where we will live with God for eternity.  That is our great hope.  That was something that was front and center to the understanding of day to day living of first century Christians.  They were looking for the end of the age. 

The end of the age is very near.  But, I don't know how very near is.  Jesus could return imminently.  As I look at things, it seems there is still some fullness that still needs to come both on the good side and the evil side.  And that is where we're picking up Jesus conversation in Matthew 24.
