God's "Invasion" is Coming
Today's reading describes the first part of "the day of the Lord," when God will lead an army to wipe out all opposition. In some ways, it will be like the recent invasion (described in chapter 1), but worse. There is no place to hide -- and no way to stop -- the hand of God, which will sweep across everything. Worse, it will be accompanied by earthquakes and the stars and moon will darken.
