Day of the Lord

       The people of the Old Testament were among the first to note that there might be a finality to time. Most other nations saw existence only as an endless cycle of seasons. The Israelites saw the actions of God in history and concluded that there might be a terminal to these acts. This concept led to the notion of Judgment (or Doom's) Day. At that event God would bring final punishment to the wicked and reward to the good.
       Paul used this notion in winning converts. Some, like the Christians of Thessalonica, took the idea too literally. They thought that the end of the world was imminent. Some even quit their jobs to wait. This gained Paul's followers a reputation for laziness. Fanatics even claimed to have received angelic messages warning of the approaching "Day of the Lord". The Apostle writes to discourage false anxieties.
