    Joel ch. 2 is prophecy for the whole world, Jew and Gentile, vs. 28-32, "...that whosoever shall call on the NAME ... and in the remnant" (gentiles). Acts 2:16-21,v22 - "... that whosoever shall call on the NAME ..., v. 22 "... JESUS... "; vs. 37-38, " men and brethren, WHAT SHALL WE DO?" "Then Peter said ... repent and be baptized in the NAME of Jesus ....."

    Although directed towards the inhabitants of Israel, warning of an almost invincible northern enemy, we should realize that the text has a timeless universal appeal. Personal and national abandonment of divine laws always attract severe judgement. God's preference is life and the blessings that enhance it instead of mere existence and death.

    V.25 - I, read and heard this used in preaching, but not really expounded upon - until tonight at Bible study. I've been back with the Lord now for 2 1/2 yrs; backslid forv34 yrs. So, my 2 boys grew up without the Lord; just drugs 'n alcohol. Tonight it was explained these are the yrs. the cankerworm, locust, palmerworm have taken - THAT CAN NOW BE RESTORED!!! Thank-you Jesus.

    This is only for the 12 tribes of Israel not for the whole world

    I love the fact that God has mercy and grace on his people, even though there will be hard times for Christians in the end times but God will still pour out his blessings and favor for his people..
