    The day of the Lord is about judgment, the Lords day is about Christian day of rest.

    I believe Joshua 21:43. Does it say that Israel kept their side of God's promises?

    No. We know they didn't from Judges 1.
    What's your point jgr? Why don't you like the idea of God's people, that is: every faithful Christian, going to live in the holy Land, the great fulfilment of God desire to have a people there who will at last be His witnesses to the nations.
    See you there!

    Both phrases are linguistically equivalent. They both mean a day that belongs to the Lord. It is only a quirk of ENGLISH that separates them.

    Show me chapter and verse where the "Day of the Lord"/"Lord's Day" is tied in any way to the "day of rest."

    And while you are at it, show me chapter and verse that authorizes a separate "Christian day of rest."

    God has always commanded one day in 7 rest for all mankind in the Decalogue.....Acts20:7,1cor16:1,2,heb4:
    Jesus as the true Israel and first fruits of the new creation is the rest the Christian Israel follows now.
    We do not follow the original creation rest,nor the 7th day mosaic Sabbath that was followed during the old covenant which has passed away.
    Messianic groups error by seeking to revive practices that were completed and discarded.

    You've forgotten that the issue under discussion is strictly whether God gave Israel the land that He had promised. Joshua 21:43 tells us that He did. What Israel did or did not do in the land thereafter is an entirely separate issue.
