The Great Day (from The Story featuring Michael W. Smith and Darlene Zschech)

I am in agreement with you 100%, but when I listen to this song, I feel that it is talking about absolutes in our life. We all claim HE is King, but how often do we live like it? DO we really understand what that means? Yeah, He is over all and the ultimate authority, but do we worship Him in every part of our life as King? Not saying it gives excuse, but On that Great Day (the title of the song), He will be King in a very real way that we unfortunately, do not fully understand now. I mean, we will know what He meant by being our King, because even our earthly view of king fails to the kind of King he will be and the kind of servants we will be versus our finite understanding of who He truly is. I know that if you were to ask either of these great performers, they would say that Christ absolutely is King right now. Again, agree with what you are saying but to not be willing to share such a powerful song with your church, could be remedied by giving an explanation for clarification, or have your choir sing it but change the chorus to He is the King!

Great stuff. Important also to remember that we bear responsibility until that Great Day. We are the hands and feet and do the work here on this Earth. Too many times we become complacent, waiting for our Lord to bring the change he promised. We are part of that very change right here, right now and are accountable to Him for what he freely gives us. Every thing on Earth has rights, and humanity, in it's complacency, tends to walk all over that. Remember, the Earth is not ours, it is the Lord's, and everything in it. When we live with it, not on it or above it, poverty, war, crime, famine, hardship will truly become a thing of the past.

I am so sorry that most Christians are waiting for Jesus to come back and do what He promised to do the first time He came. The first century Jews expected the Messiah to come and defeat Rome. Unfortunately many Christians still think Jesus came or will come to set up an earthly kingdom. Jesus, I'm sorry that we refuse to accept your plain statements: "My kingdom is NOT of this world" (John 18:36). Our blessed Lord Jesus promised to return within His own generation to judge (Mt. 23:34-36), to , for every eye to see and knee bow (Rev. 1:1,3,7) to come in the clouds displaying His great power, gather His saints, and to bring an end to their (covenant) world (Mt. 24:29-34). He promised that some (but not all) those He spoke to would see all this in their generation (Mt. 16:27-28; 24:33-34), and all of His disciples understood this (Rom. 13:12; 16:20; Heb. 10:37; 1 Peter 4:5,7,17; 1 John 2:18; Rev. 1:1,3,7; 2:17,25; 3:3,10-11; 22:6,10,12,20). Of course, this is all apocalyptic imagery and not to be taken physically. We need to understand the original context and genres of the Bible a little better. The great news is that Jesus fully accomplished His work of bringing us into the New Jerusalem, the New Heavens and Earth! The Bible is not primarily concerned with biological life, suffering, or death but rather with covenant life, suffering, and death. The work of our Lord Jesus has already made possible a full relationship with God to all who will humbly accept Jesus by faith!

We are Our Fathers children, and we will do His Work until the Lord comes back.....including going through tribulation, though as children of God, with His name sealed on their foreheads (minds)....but we are to continue teaching and doing His Work.....

but to prove God's elect will still be here when the antichrist is here: Matt 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

Jo Vols, I believe this is the passage: Mark 13:27 27And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

Mark 13: 21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: 22For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. 23But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 4These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. 5And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. 6These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. 7And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 8And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. 10And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. 11And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 12And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. 14The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. 15And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. 16And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, 17Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 18And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. 19And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. << Revelation 11 >> HOLY BIBLE, King James Version, Cambridge Edition.

I mean, we can argue all day long....but I truly believe that the antichrist comes first...then the two witnesses are slain, and rise again after 3 days...THEN our Lord comes...2 Cor 5:6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the if someone calling himself The Lord comes, and your still in your physical body, know it is not HIM......

  • 2012-07-15T19:23:41

I think you are wrong Jo.....It specifically says these things must come to pass before our Lord returns.....the antichrist comes at the 6th Trumph, Our Lord comes at the 7th Trumph...Rev. 7:1 1And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.Daniel 12:1 "At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people--everyone whose name is found written in the book--will be delivered.

I cannot find the exact spot where it's written in the Bible but I know it is there. It's written that the antichrist will not be able to come until the Church itself has been taken away from this earth by the angels who Yeshua the Messiah will send out. First the people who lie in their graves will be taken up to heaven, and then those who are still alive. In the blink of an eye our body will be transformed in the state of the body of Yeshua after His resurrection. Only the Scriptures tell the truth about this coming event.

My goodness - warn users to have a tissue handy...the Holy Spirit obviously created this and yes, I was blessed beyond measure. Lord Jesus, come!

  • 2012-07-15T01:43:31

It will be awesome when our Lord Yeshua comes back.....but please don't be deceived....the antichrist comes first....and claims to be our not be fooled....we will all still be on this earth.......................... Matthew 24:15 "So when you see standing in the holy place 'the abomination that causes desolation,' spoken of through the prophet Daniel--let the reader understand--.Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days..when Yeshua comes back, we will all go back to our spiritual bodies, even unbelievers......and be with Our Father....then after the Thousand Year reign is the Judgement!

I agree and that's why I'm not posting. He is KING of kings!
