The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness, but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)
“The day of the Lord” is not a 24 hour day, but that indefinite length of time when God will again intervene in human history, this time to bring it all to a crashing halt. As we often speak of the day of grace, a specific yet indefinite time when God’s grace is dominant as at no other time, so we understand the day of the Lord to be a time when the heavens which are now declare God’s glory will be taken away to fully demonstrate God’s power and presence. In contrast, humanity is now having its day, a time of unfolding history. God will have His day, which will be post-historic.
