THE DAY OF THE LORD--WHEN THE CREATOR RETURNS & EARTH MELTS

We have come this morning to the next doctrine in Revelation 6. We have come to the Day of the Lord & Christ's Centrality to Everything.
All of human history, all of God's Word the Bible, and the entire universe in which we live: centers upon Jesus Christ, God the Son.
Paul overflowed in wonder at Christ's glory in Romans 11:36 (NKJV) when he said:
For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.
Jesus Christ is Central to Everything in Life
This morning only as we allow Christ to be at the center of everything we consider, will everything make sense. Jesus is the only way to find meaning in life. Note what Paul says:
“Of Him”: all that has life, all that exists whether time, space, energy, or any form of matter is only “of Him”.
“Through Him”: the only way out of sins penalties is through Him; and the only way into God’s favor is “through Him”.
“To Him”: everything is headed for an appointment. To Him has been given all authority in the Universe and on Earth. All that matters is what anything means “to Him”.
Jesus Christ is Central to Everything That Exist
First, we can note the three dimensions of Christ: of Him, through Him, and to Him.
• The Doctrine of Creation: Jesus Christ the Creator is the One who starts everything as He framed the entire universe, seen and unseen, by speaking everything into existence; and He continues holding it together (Col. 1:15-17).
• The Doctrine of Redemption: Jesus Christ the Redeemer is the One who came to die for sinful humans. He was born as the exact image of Almighty God, who as Jesus reminds us, if we see Christ, we have seen the Father (John 14:9).
• The Doctrine of the Second Coming: Jesus Christ the Lord is the One who when He returns, comes in blazing, blinding, fiery fury, pouring out the pent-up wrath of a Holy, Just, Merciful, and Loving God. All of history centers upon this final moment. And that is where we have come this morning.

The first two events are history.

Creation bears Christ's signature by the laws of the universe that show not the chaos of chance and evolution, but the cosmos of creation, with its immutable laws.

Redemption fills the history books of humanity, even our calendars around most of the world find His birth as the dividing line between BC (before Christ) and AD (the year of our Lord). Today millions profess His Name and bear His image.

The last event is coming.

It is called all the way through the Bible by the name: “the Day of the Lord”. That event is the end of life as we know it, and the ultimate event. That is what everything is heading towards, either knowingly (us the redeemed), or unknowingly (the lost).
