The Day of the Lord Day 2a - The Sun and Moon Will No Longer Rule

The Minor Prophets Speak To Today

The Day of the Lord Day 2a

Jesus: The Light of The World

Zechariah 14:5-7 NLT


Half the mountain will move toward the north and half toward the south. You will flee through this valley, for it will reach across to Azal. Yes, you will flee as you did from the earthquake in the days of King Uzziah of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come, and all his holy ones with him.

Then the Lord my God will come, and all his holy ones with him.

After God provides a way for the people left in Jerusalem to flee to safety through a new valley on dry ground, our great hope will come: Jesus will return and all his holy ones with him. 

Some will be the saints and prophets who have died before. Some will be people alive at this return who have been caught up to be with him and the other holy ones as he returns.

It is not revealed here how physically this juxtaposes with his standing on the Mount of Olives causing it to split in half. We can only speculate that if the mountain split in half beneath him, he lifted up off the mountain until the great flight of people has finished.

This transition we do not know. But this we do know:

On that day the sources of light will no longer shine.

Sky  sun  stars  moon The words used in this statement are no longer clear in the Hebrew. No surprise. The prophecy itself declares that how the state of continuous day occurs only the Lord knows.

We do not know if the sources of light will disappear or just be so diminished by the presence of Christ that on that day there will be continuous day. It sounds like the words of other prophets and the words declared by Jesus.

Thethe glory of the moon will 
wane, and the brightness of the sun will fade, for the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will rule on Mount Zion. He will rule in great glory in Jerusalem, in the sight of all the leaders of his people.

“No longer will you need the sun to shine by day, nor the moon to give its light by night, for the Lord your God will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.

The sun and moon will grow dark, and the stars
 will no longer shine.

“Immediately after the anguish of those
days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will give no light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.

But this we do know. This the Lord has revealed:

There will be no normal day and night,
for at evening time it will still be light.
