9 The Day of the LORD


The Day of the LORD, or The Day of Yahweh, was a time when ancient Israelites expected God to break into human history, pay back the enemies of his covenant people with judgment, and perhaps make them rulers over the earth.  Sadly, disobedient Israel didn't see her sins as a hindrance to God's blessing.  They learned the hard way that the Day of Yahweh only rewards the righteous but judges the wicked.  And it will do so again.
