(Rick Joyner) This week we continue our study of Revelation 1:10: “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day …” Understanding what it meant for John to be “in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day” is the beginning of the revelation of an important theme of prophecy in Scripture—”the day of the Lord.”
The apostle Peter indicated the importance of this when he wrote, “But, beloved, do not be ignorant of this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (2 Pet. 3:8). In biblical prophecy, a “day” often represents a thousand-year period.
As we can compute from adding up the genealogies in Scripture, it has been about 6,000 years since the first Adam, or six prophetic days. The seventh prophetic day is the Sabbath. When Jesus said that He was the “Lord of the Sabbath,” He was talking about how He would rule over what is popularly called “the millennium.” This thousand-year period that is the seventh prophetic day is also referred to as “the day of the Lord,” which is what John was prophetically taken to in this revelation.
