Discussion for Joel 2

  • Ngozi
    Joel2 shows that God is merciful.if we truly repent and turn away from our sin He will forgive us and restore all that we have lost in sin. It's also painting a picture of the end time which depicts hardships war, terror etc but only those who truly serve God and worship him will be saved. They will be exempted from evil of this days. It will be a lifting up. Visions great ideas of the end time will be poured out from God to His children. Gods children will be creating new jobs opening up new businesses. There will be abundance for us. God will restore us and get ready for His return. We would also be an instrument of restoration of the lost world to Him. Praise God

    The book Joel is showing us the true makeup of God,He can send His wrath when He's trying to get His people's attention , He will warn man too ,because He loves man..He would rather share His love thourgh the Holy Spirit to comfort not chasten ,but if your His He will save you..

    Joel is encouraged to Christian faith
  • Benora
    A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. Moving away from an army of locusts to an army of fierce people covering the land, I continue on with the theme expressed in Chapter one. Contrary to popular deceptive preaching about how glorious the day of the Lord is, the day of Yahweh is one of darkness and gloom. This is not all bad. Messiah calls upon us to be the light of the world amidst darkness, Matt, 5:16 I have often heard verses 7-9 of this chapter compared to Romans 8 concerning the manifested sons of God , but this is hard to swallow especially since Messiah says that the thief cometh not, but to steal, kill, and destroy, but that he Messiah is come with life, and that more abundantly. Jn. 10:10.
  • Abigail for verse 25
    God can never allow me fail, everything happening to me that looks like a storm is only trying God not me. and God will win for me in Jesus name Amen
  • Joanna Banji for verse 25
    Matthew 5:18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. All is accomplish in my life, this is the kind of God that I serve.
