May 24, 2020 CAC Living Water Devotional :- THE DAY OF THE LORD

📆 Sunday, May 24, 2020
Read: Zechariah 14:1-9
Zechariah 14:1-9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
MEMORISE: The great day of the Lord is near; it is near and hastens quickly. The noise of the day of the Lord is bitter; there the mighty men shall cry out (Zephaniah 1:14)
The wedding is a special day for both the bride and groom. The bride especially idolises this day! She calls it “her day”. She wants to have ‘her way’ through-out the day! Even when she is going into excesses, she still believes the day is given to her to do all that please her! Although God has graciously given to all and sundry, many days, which are meant for everyone to repent and do His will (Psa. 90:12). He has however reserved a day, which is Day of days for Himself alone! (2 Pet. 3:10).
On the Lord’s Day, it is no longer “my wedding day”, “my birthday”, “my anniversary day”, “my town’s day”,… etc. It is exclusively the Lord’s day. What will happen on this extraordinary day makes it special and different from all other days (2 Pet. 3:12). It is a day of calamities, terrors, wailing, punishment and mourning for sinners, yet, also a day of joy, peace and reward for the saints (1 Thess. 5:9). It is now a matter of choice: which one will you prefer? (Jos. 24:15-16).
It is no exaggeration. The Day of the Lord is going to be terrible for the wicked! Now people have ‘strong’ men to run to for safety from EFCC, NDLEA, ICPC, and other anti-corruption agencies. But nothing like this on that day! Wanting to commit suicide that day will no longer be possible! It will be so terrible that the wicked will wish to be swallowed alive by the earth in order to escape the calamities that God would rain down (Lk. 21:25-26). However, all these are avoidable, if you accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour, and begin to live a godly life (2 Pet. 3:11).
1. Lord Jesus, help me to live my life the way You want it, so that I won’t end up regretting on the last Day.
2. Lord, I refuse to experience the horror of the Day of The Lord.
3. Lord, restore heaven-consciousness in the heart of our revivalists as they go about conducting programmes in our churches.
