Where will you be on that day?
In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of? (Isaiah 2:20-22 KJV)
“In that day…” is speaking of that day Christ returns to earth to judge those who remained in their sin and wickedness upon this earth as the tribulation period winds down and the earth is destroyed. It is first of all important to keep in mind that those who have been quickened alive were already raptured in the clouds and are established in the heavenly realm. This second return is for judgment of those who insisted on living in alignment with the god of this world never acknowledging the authority of God upon their life or desiring a personal relationship with Him.
The Bible tells us that those who are left on this earth as His saints are taken to Heaven exist on this earth in great fear of God’s judgment which will fall hard and fast upon them. They are trying to hide anywhere they can to escape the horrible result of their sin; finding no relief even upon mountainous rocks or in caves finding nowhere in the world to hide from the wrath of God. These people have already abandoned all their earthly treasures accumulated and the birds of the air and creatures of the ground flock to scavenge over these worthless possessions which will soon burn up and disintegrate into nothing.
The earth will shake and tremble as God’s wrath pours out on those left in this world in that horrific day. Those who are in God’s spiritual family are safely tucked into their eternal home as the earth falls apart.
