Wesley's Notes for Joel 3:19


3:19 Egypt - By Egypt we may understand all the enemies of the church who carry it toward the church, as Egypt carried it toward Israel. Edom - Edom was an implacable enemy to Judah in his greatest distress. And all who come under Edom's character are here threatened under this name. Judah - The people of God.

    Beautiful words of our Great God and Savior, soon to be fulfilled. Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Amen, even so come Lord Jesus, come quickly.

    The Day of the LORD is at hand and our redemption draws near! The chain of events which are now rapidly taking shape, have an end! We know that during the last, and most terrible and dreadful kingdom of the heathen, will be the days when the Lord comes to take them away for ever, when He sets up His everlasting kingdom. Let us not be troubled, but exulting; and the trial is only for small moment!
