The day of the Lord is a phrase in the Bible that refers to moments in history when God confronts the evil of corrupt civilizations and orchestrates their downfall. The biblical prophets, and later Jesus himself developed this theme to generate hope in the future day when God will rescue his world from evil and bring about a renewed creation.

  1. Amazing work as usual! you guys have really helped me out with my faith and I think God used you to inspire me to start reading His Word. Godspeed!

    • I watch these guys to help me learn and understand and I love them but sometimes I am more confused than ever. I guess I will just have to wait and see. But I will for sure continue with my studies! Praise God and praise The Bible Project! Amen!

    • +Donna L Don’t ever be discouraged. Sometimes it helps rewatching or re-reading certain things. I know from personal expeirence when I watch a certain video/movie multiple times (doesn’t necessarily have to be on the same day), each and every time something just clicks and I learn new things i.e. new truths are uncovered and my eyes are opened more and more. Even though I look and listen, I don’t always see and hear every bit of information. It’s kinda like peeling the skins of an onion, where you gain new insight beneath each layer until you ultimately reach the core.
      So yeah, it helps to let some time pass before coming back to the videos that were difficult to fully understand, even the ones that we think we know 100%, because there might alway be something that we missed out on or see some things in a new light.

      God Bless 🙂

    • Thanks hamster! I will certainly be doing this. I think discussion is important too as I had a conversation this evening about some of this with a friend. I gave her a general idea of what was going on in my head (and heart) and she gave me her insight. And I was journaling as I viewed this the other day, so I will sure be going back over it all again very soon! Thanks so much for your info. And I will stay strong and not be discouraged! Blessings to you!

    • Definitely. Wow, you see? Didn’t even think of that one. Discussions are very helpful, especially open-minded, healthy and genuine discussions. Take care.
      Peace 🙂

    • Nah you’re mistaken. This video was very helpful, I didn’t know much about The Day until last Thursday. But the video was also (ALSO) fun to watch. The Jesus in the video made me laugh when he gave Evil/Satan the hand and when he practically welcomed Evil/Satan to kill him. Very helpful and fun.

    • Jimberly Monegro Me too! I seriously struggle with the idea of continuing to live… I don’t have support from my parents and all of my friends are starting to marry and I just don’t know why I should keeping working so hard sometimes. Some times I get glimpses of God’s glory, but it’s so temporary. I cannot wait until heaven to experience God’s glory for eternity!

    • hey chris, he is coming for sure on the day of the lord (Thessalonian 4) . But he is not coming to judge or to glorify the church. He is coming for a perfect bride.
      I am not trying to relate to the christ who walked on the earth though i learn from it. I am relating to the resurrected christ. (Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer.Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. – 2 Corinthians 5:16)

    • Ruchika Ratatnayake im not sure what point you are trying to make if you are? i agree with everything you said. in your first post it sounded like you were saying that when christ was here on earth and talked about his return that you were saying that he was talking about pentacost. i may have misunderstood. but thats how i read it so thats all i was trying to say. is that he will return.

  2. I don’t know how you do it, but you guys, whoever you geeks are, make the Bible appear intriguing, interesting, and heavens “allow”, logical, if not at least plausible. The way you connect the dots to make several or variable seemingly unconnected events appear as just one cohesive, intertwined, indivisible phenomena is just sheer genius. With all due respect

    • This isn’t Rocket Science, Sister.
      However, most Believers treat the learning of Hebrew as such. They will simple-mindedly trust these “Bankrobber ‘Savage Wolves’ Translators” to just simply BE ESTEEMED AS INFALLIBLE, and never check their Bibles out.
      You have to remember that we live in an evil “Corporation Minded” world that’s distrustful of those who would try to “look behind the curtain.” If this kind of information wasn’t explosive, then you wouldn’t have gotten any one little bit interested or upset about it, would you? The Devil has many Wolves among the Congregations of Yahweh Almighty. And most of them are highly esteemed “Scholars.”

    • When you tell me that I have a confusing explanation, this only reinforces my own personal experience with people in general, that true intellectuals in the faith are few, if any.
      Attacking a faithful student (and then again maybe you weren’t trying to do that) is most of the responses I get from people who become offended that there are solid evidences against the Hidden Agenda within both Judaism and Christianity to hide away the whole truth from us.

      Meanwhile, the world is laughing at us.

    • Robbi Huffine
      I did not mean for my response to sound like an attack, however, I do consider myself reasonably intelligent, and have always thought that if I cannot grasp a concept, it is because (1) it is not being explained well enough or (2) I am really not that interested. In this case, if I has homosexual tendencies, I would definitely be more interested. Explanation (1) may sound rather cocky, but when college professors look to me for confirmation of the comprehensibleness of their lectures, it just confirms that thought. And while I commend you on your efforts to learn Hebrew (and to explain it, and it does seem like you put forth a valiant effort there… one can only do so much in a comment section), I personally am not being called at this time to do that myself.
      So, if there is nothing wrong with homosexuality, according to a proper and accurate translation of the Bible, isn’t that good news for homosexuals? If it is true, I am happy for them. And if it is not true, then I am apprehensive for them. But it is not my place to condemn them or anyone else. That unpleasant task belongs to either YHVH or Yahshua (or both?), and I don’t want it.
      Thank you for responding, though. I am sure there are many things that are mistranslated in the Bible, and this exchange just serves as a humbling reminder that even the things that we think we know can be based on fallacy.

  3. my dad told me that god does not want us eating pork and I haven’t since he told me

    if this is true can you guys make a video on the story why we can’t eat pork

    • maskedtechnology
      following your logic :
      God says that the Christian believer is Abraham’s descendent.
      God told Abraham that all those who come from him, namely his sons, have to go through circumcision.
      This results in the fact that Christians need to go through circumcision.

    • maskedtechnology That’s an Old Testament restriction that no longer applies today. Pigs were counted as one of the “unclean” animals. It was a part of keeping Israel Holy before Christ. Christ makes us Holy through his substitutionary sacrifice in our behalf, and makes us clean. You can eat whatever you want.

    • I meant in Revelation 19 – it’s got blood on it in v13, but he doesn’t trample the winepress until v15. Although, that depends on the translation you read. Some say ‘he treads’, which could be an ongoing thing started before v13 (i.e. in ch14, which I hadn’t noticed). Others say, ‘he will tread,’ which I had taken to mean he hadn’t started yet.

      I’m sure there must be some good reason for their assumption that it’s Jesus blood (even if they’re wrong, they wouldn’t just pull something like that out of thin air), but I have no idea what. Got a few ideas of things to look up, though. But tomorrow 🙂

    • Nathan Soper Yes, I think you’re right. I was just reading the immediate context.

      I couldn’t find anything very relevant to explain their interpretation. I ended up doing a search on the word ‘blood’ (isn’t bible software amazing!)

      But all I could come up with is that HIS PEOPLE’S robes are washed in his blood (Rev7) and THEY triumph over the accuser by Jesus’ blood (Rev12). Which is not the same thing.

      The only thing I can think of that could be relevant is Col2v15, where it says that he triumphed over the powers and authorities by the cross. But that’s a bit tenuous.

      So I’m completely mystified. Maybe the podcast will explain when they get to that bit.

    • Nathan Soper Yes I also appreciate the discussion – sometimes I think I should just stop reading the comments, there’s so much unnecessary dogmatism, rudeness, and people setting themselves up as some kind of spiritual authority. Nice to just discuss sensibly!

  4. Not even the most corrupt generation would redefine Furby as good.

    (Seriously though, excellent work on overall context and including secondary applications, too!)

  5. Men of God, you do good work, however I feel like you are soft selling the WRATH OF THE LAMB! The first time Christ was a sacrifice, he DOES NOT come as a sacrifice the second time.

    Revelations 19:11-21
    And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
    His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

    And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
    And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
    And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, THAT WITH IT HE SHOULD SMITE THE NATIONS: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he TREADETH THE WINEPRESS OF THE FIERCENESS AND WRATH OF ALMIGHTY GOD.
    And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
    And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
    That ye may EAT THE FLESH OF KINGS, AND THE FLESH OF CAPTINS, AND THE FLESH OF MIGHTY MEN, AND THE FLESH OF HORSES, AND OF THEM THAT SIT ON THEM, AND OF THE FLESH OF MEN, BOTH FREE AND BOND, BOTH SMALL AND GREAT.

    And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together TO MAKE WAR against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
    And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
    And the remnant were SLAIN WITH THE SWORD of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were FILLED WITH THEIR FLESH.
    ——————————————————————————————-
    So we see in a full context that this is not a retelling of the crucifixion. The battle harkens back to some symbolism of the first incarnation and mission of Christ, but this is a REAL battle in which the fowl of the air will dine on the dead flesh of the opposing army. Don’t forget, God speaks things in and out of existence. He speaks plagues and curses into reality. He speaks floods, earthquakes, hailstorms and sickness upon the camps of the heathen. His word is not simply judgment, it is not just healing, miracles, and blessing, it is a literal weapon if need be.

    Revelation 6:16
    And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from THE WRATH OF THE LAMB:

    Wrath is not love, it is not forgiveness, it is not pity, it is not sacrifice. WRATH IS DESTRUCTION AND WOE! This is what his enemies will drink to the full until they are drunk with the satisfaction of God’s holy wrath.

    • Leopard-King very true. I like their work but the video made it seem that evil comes from outside of us rather than inside of us. It portrays us as victims of evil without acknowledging that we are also victimizers….and rebels of God. Sin is not only a systemic condition of the world, it’s only a rebellion in our individual hearts that we freely choose.

      Speaking of the second coming, might I add another verse?
      1 Thessalonians 5: Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

  6. Are you guys referring to Rev 19:13 when you say Jesus is already covered in blood while he is on his horse? You describe it as his own blood but in Isaiah 63:3 it refers to the blood of his enemies. Just want to clarify it because this video is well made but that part (5:16) is misleading

    • +Brett Slaathaug​ Daniel says that Jesus will *confirm* the Covenant, that is a very important distinction. The *same* Covenant made with Abraham was now confirmed by Jesus, that is *fulfilled*, in the sense that God was now holding to His part of the bargain, so to speak, by providing a Lamb for sacrifice instead of Isaac.
      The confirmation has nothing to do with the validity period, since the Covenant is indeed everlasting, but the confirmation happened during that 3.5 years ministry period ending in His death on the cross. Indeed, confirmation means nothing else than attesting to the truth of a promise, and that’s exactly what Jesus had done.
      His crucifixion stopped sacrifices and oblation *for God*, in that it made them of no effect in the eyes of the Father, even though Jews continued to offer them. In fact, it was for this *very reason* that God destroyed the temple, because they commited the abomination of idolatry by continuing sacrifices.
      The abomination was committed by the Jews, not by the prince, just read the text again, there is nothing saying that the prince was guilty of it, it only says that the prince will bring the punishment for the abomination, which is desolation and complete destruction. Don’t conflate Daniel with 2 Thessalonians 2 which speaks of a completely different character and a completely different time (the end of history).
      The whole Jesus in the clouds exacting punishment on Jerusalem is fully biblical and I argued why in my previous comment.

  7. WOW GREAT VISUAL STORY AND NARRATION. EXTREMELY ENGAGING this helped me understand the Day of the Lord and the context behind it a lot more. Thanks 😀
