The Lord’s Day

(Zechariah 14:4-5; Matthew 24:27-30; John 5:28-29)

Zechariah said the Lord will open a pathway through the Mount of Olives1Zech 14:4-5 when the nations attack Jerusalem—the saints will be taken away before the nations attack. In Revelation 16, before the battle begins, Jesus says, “Behold, I am coming as a thief.”2Rev 16:15

He will gather the elect from the four corners of the earth.3Mar 13:27 Paul said that the dead in Christ will rise first, and we will all meet Him in the air.41Th 4:16-17 John said all the nations will weep and mourn, for every eye will see Him.5Rev 1:7

Those who have done good will rise to a resurrection of life, and those who do evil will rise to a resurrection of judgment. But all those whose names are written in the book of life will be saved.6Joh 5:28-29
