The Day of Christ (Philippians 1:11; 2:16, also "the Day of Jesus Christ," 1:6) is a "day" of approximately 7 years and includes events in heaven beginning with the Rapture, when God has completed His work in us here on earth (1:6, 11). It continues through the Bema (2:16) until the Lord returns to earth.
The Day of the Lord lasts 1007 years, commencing at the beginning of the tribulation (2 Thessalonians 5:2, with Daniel 9:27). It culminates after the 1000 year reign of Christ (Revelation 20:6) when God judges this earth by fire (2 Peter 3:7, 10; Revelation 20:9-11). It includes events on earth.
The Day of God is unmeasured in duration, commencing at the end of the Day of the Lord (2 Peter 3:12) and includes events in the new heavens and earth, in which righteousness dwells and God tabernacles with men (Revelation 21:1-4). It is different from "the great day of God Almighty" (Revelation 16:14).
