The day of the Lord follows immediately after the Great Tribulation. The sixth seal will mark the beginning of direct intervention by God in world affairs – the terrifying signs in the heavens.
“And the heavens departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; and said to the mountains and rocks; Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him that sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? (Rev. 6:14-17).
Notice this is the day of the wrath of God, which paints a different picture than mainstream Christianity portrays. God is wrathful because mankind is NOT obeying His laws and way of life, and this is the way He gets everyone’s attention. This is the Day of the Eternal, bringing us the return of Jesus Christ to earth in all power and glory, to rule the people of earth and to bring peace!
