Day of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Numerous observances of the American calendar end with the word “day.” From one point of view, the suffix “day” may seem uselessly redundant, considering that these observances must occur on some day. On the other hand, to add the word “day” may indicate the actual arrival of that for which there has been anticipation and preparation. For example, great effort may be exerted to cook Thanksgiving dinner and invite the guests, or to decorate the house and wrap presents for Christmas, or to prepare another dinner and make resolutions for the New Year. Add the word “day” to any of these, and there is designated the arrival of the real event. So it should be, and more so, regarding the anticipated arrival of the Lord in the air. Paul told the Church at Corinth to wait for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who shall confirm you to the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
