1 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
There is a powerful insight in understanding the Day. How the day ENDS with the morning, before a NEW day begins. There is a false doctrine (reversing the order of the day) that is attributed to Jews, but strangely many Christians have adopted it. Regardless of how it crept in, it only serves one purpose - to blind you about the time.
"His going forth is prepared as the morning" brings to mind another verse that says it is time to wake out of our sleep for the night is long spent, our salvation is nearer than when we fist believed.
For most of history, you awoke by the light of the morning (before the sun rose) or by the noisy rooster who also wakes before the sunrise. (hint here about the timeline in the night Jesus was betrayed (btw))
The point of knowing the time is to know our Good works toward the Kingdom. Proverbs 25:5 says "Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness." This sounds like what Jude (quoting Enoch) is talking about in removing the ungodly. Notice these are things that happen before His return. "You are the light of the world". Christ in you, the hope of Glory.
As Christ in you spreads the good news to the ends of the earth, the whole world will have the knowledge of the Glory of God. Notice in Jonah, that the sun burns his head, but God could easily give him shade and protection. The Glory will burn some who are in the wrong mindset and do not recognize, or want to remain in darkness. But the saints are delighted and empowered in His Glory.
