The Day Of The Lord


Jesus told the scribes in John chapter eight, “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day and he saw it and was glad.” What day was it that Abraham saw? In Genesis nineteen, three men appeared unto him and the promise was renewed that through his seed should all the nations of the earth be blessed. In Hebrews eleven we are reminded, “These all died in faith, not having received the promise, but having seen them afar off, were persuaded of them and blessed them.” By faith Abraham saw the day of the Lord. The day he saw was the day of the offering of Jesus on the cross for the sin of the world.

In Revelation we read that John said he was in the spirit on the Lord’s Day. He saw the day of the Lord and was glad. History tells us that the Church of the first century looked forward to the first day of the week, because on that day they assembled to eat the loaf and drink of the cup in remembrance of Jesus. They saw the day of the Lord and were glad. And like Abraham I too can say on every first day of the week, “I see the day of the Lord and am glad.”

It is well to remember that Paul speaks of another day of the Lord that is connected with this day of the Lord when he said, “As often as ye eat of the bread and drink of the cup you proclaim the Lord’s death - until He comes.” At that time all the redeemed will be glad to see the day of the Lord.
