The day of Jehovah (called, also, “that day,” and “the great day”) is that lengthened period of time beginning with the return of the Lord in glory, and ending with the purgation of the heavens and the earth by fire preparatory to the new heavens and the new earth Isaiah 65:17-19; Isaiah 66:22; 2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1. The order of events appears to be:

(1) The return of the Lord in glory Matthew 24:29,30

(2) the destruction of the Beast and his host, “the kings of the earth and their armies,” and the false prophet, which is the “great and terrible’ aspect of the day Revelation 19:11-21.

(3) the judgment of the nations Zechariah 14:1-9; Matthew 25:31-46.

(4) the thousand years, i.e, the kingdom-age Revelation 20:4-6.

(5) the Satanic revolt and its end Revelation 20:7-10.

(6) the second resurrection and final judgment Revelation 20:11-15 and

(7) the “day of God,” earth purged by fire 2 Peter 3:10-13.

The day of the Lord is preceded by seven signs:

(1) The sending of Elijah Malachi 4:5; Revelation 11:3-6

(2) cosmical disturbances Joel 2:1-12; Matthew 24:29; Acts 2:19,20; Revelation 6:12-17

(3) the insensibility of the professing church 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3

(4) the apostasy of the professing church, then become “Laodicea” 2 Thessalonians 2:3

(5) the rapture of the true church 1 Thessalonians 4:17.

(6) the manifestation of the "man of sin," the Beast 2 Thessalonians 2:1-8

(7) the apocalyptic judgments (Rev. 11.-18.).
