    Patrick, the major and minor books of prophesy all speak of the day of the Lord. The day of the Lord began at the ministry of John the Baptist and has continued to the present. Matthew 11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. (vs) 12 And from the days of John until now the kingdom or heaven suffereth violence ,..... Malachi 3:1 Behold I (Jesus) will send my messenger (John the Baptist), an he (John) shall prepare the way before me (Jesus): and the Lord (Jesus) whom ye seek shall appear in his (Jesus) temple,....

Romans 11:16 For if the firstfruit be holy, then the lump is holy;....
  • Andrew on Isaiah 61:2
    The year of the Lord, the year when God 's people will enter rest, just as the 7th day after 6 days of creation, the 7,000th year a day is a 1000 year for the Lord and a 1000 years is as a day for the Lord , the start of Mellenium of Christ 's reign. NO NO NO, not the New World Order, a counterfeit of the real Millenium.
