Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

1:7 day of the LORD. The term “day of the LORD” normally refers to the future period of God’s judgments against the earth because of man’s sin. It may also, as here, refer to a precursive fulfillment on a local scale. The ultimate fulfillment seems to be at Armageddon, when the angel of God will invite all the birds of the air as His guests to “the supper of the great God” (Revelation 19:17). He will also invite the birds to “my sacrifice” at the defeat of Gog’s army (Ezekiel 39:17-20).
