Beyond The Reformation
I have been reading about the Day of Christ and searching supportive scriptures and wanted to share the information with you. I skimmed over the "Day of Christ," thinking it was the same as the Day of the Lord. The "Day of the Christ" is layed up for us in heaven and we must not be moved away from it, for it is the hope of Glory that we shall be manifested in Christ in Glory (Col.1:5; 3:4). This appearing of our Great God and Saviour is called the blessed hope (Titus 2:13). When He appears, He will change our bodies of humiliation and fashion them like unto His body of Glory (Phil. 3:20,21). If we love His appearing we shall receive a prize - the crown of righteousness (Phil.3:14,15; 2Tim. 4:8,18). There are no voices, signs or trumpets associated with this hope as there are with the Day of the Lord, when Christ returns to earth.
Also, the Day of the Lord, the Millennial reign of Jesus and the new heaven and earth of Revelation 21:1, was becoming a dumping ground for the time of certain events to occur and for the different resurrections.
Many are looking for the rapture (snatching away) in this present time we are living but it is not the next event.
I believe the next event to occur will be the Kingdom (Governemnt) of God on earth. Elijah must come first before the dreadful Day of the Lord. Restoration must take place. (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17: 11)

May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, continue to give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the realization of Him, may the eyes of your heart continue to be enlightened, for you to perceive what is the expectation of His calling. (Ephesians 1:17,18).
Examine the Scriptures to see if these things are so! (Acts 17:11).
