The Lord reigns over all, and one day He will return to judge the world with justice. (Acts 17:31) And it tells us here that heaven and earth, the sea and fields… even the trees will rejoice at His coming. But they all may be singing already, for in Psalm 65:9 it says, “You care for the land and water it; You enrich it abundantly.” And because of God’s wonderful care for the earth, starting in verse 13 of Chapter 65, it says the grasslands of the desert overflow, the hills are clothed with gladness, the meadows are covered with flocks, the valleys are mantled with grain, and they all shout for joy and sing. So just imagine, every crash of waves on the shore, every rustle of leaves or ripe grain in the field could be the earth’s way of praising God…we just don’t know the song.
As defined, The Day of The Lord is a significant period of time described as a day of wrath, distress and anguish, trouble and ruin, darkness and gloom for all mankind. Isaiah 34: 2-8 describes The Day of the Lord as God’s judgment against the Nations…or His ultimate intervention in the affairs of His people. For in the Valley of decision, mankind won’t have the option to choose anymore.
