The article explores the meaning of judgment day or the day of the Lord. It claims that the original phrase had an overall positive connotation when God's will is finally done, or in direct reference to a Hebrew festival as the feast of the Lord. Amos reportedly rebuked revelers in the eighth century B.C. and in one prophetic pronouncement, the happy day became feared. It adds that the actual day remains a mystery in the gospels, with St. Paul identifying the day as Christ's second coming.
