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.

    The Righteous man walks in his integrity. His children are blessed after him. PROVERBS 20:7. One night a father overheard his son pray: Dear God, make me the kind of man my daddy is. Later that night, the father prayed-- Dear God, make me the kind of man my son wants me to be:AMEN
