Some people mistakenly assume that, when the apostle John wrote that he: “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,” (Revelation 1:10), he was worshipping on a Sunday and subsequently experienced the vision on that day. But, nowhere in the Holy Scriptures does it define “Lord’s Day” as the first day of the week. (Yes folks I know it is hard to understand but according to our modern calender Sunday is the FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK). If this vision were referencing a day of the week, we would have to conclude that John meant the seventh day (Saturday), since Yahweh calls that day His; “If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:” (Isaiah 58:13). Yahshua the Messiah said He was the “Lord of the Sabbath” (Mark 2:28), not some other day of the week (compare Isaiah 58:13).
However, the context of John’s vision shows that he wasn’t referring to a day of the week at all. Instead, he wrote that the vision transported him forward into that time the Holy Scriptures elsewhere calls the “day of the Lord“, “day of the Lord Jesus Christ” and “day of Christ” (Jeremiah 46:10; Zephaniah 1:14; Acts 2:20; I Corinthians 1:8; 5:5; II Corinthians 1:14; I Thessalonians 5:2; II Thessalonians 2:2; II Peter 3:10).
These terms are not speaking of a specific 24 hour period. Instead, they refer to the end-time events surrounding the return of Yahshua the Messiah, when He will personally and directly intervene in the affairs of the Adamkind Race. Thus these terms indicate the end of the age of men’s rule and the beginning of the age of Yahshua the Messiah. That is the theme of the book of Revelation and “the Lord’s day” that John saw in the vision.
Thank you for reading and you may now finish your “day of rest”.
