What happens in the future?

1 Thessalonians 5:1-3, “1 Now as to the periods and times, brothers and sisters, you have no need of anything to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord is coming just like a thief in the night. 3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction will come upon them like labor pains upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.”

Look at the phrase “Day of the Lord.”  When we talk about the “Day of the Lord” we’re not talking about a “day” like a 24-hour period, but more so the phrase “Day of the Lord” is language to describe a point in history. 

It might be similar to phrases like the last 12-months being described as the “Days of Covid” but the “Day of the Lord” is talking about a period of time when Jesus’ rule and glory are clearly seen to all people.
