Discussion for Joel 2

  • A disciple
    BSP; you bring up a very important point, although I have to show you something about that. In this very chapter is described quite differently than what you say: "Let the priests the ministers of the LORD weep..saying, Spare thy people O LORD.." It is part of our duty as Christ's disciples to walk in His steps of feeling compassion and hurt WITH those suffering, to stand up for them before God.

    Verse 21: Those who are righteous in God's eyes will have no reason to fear these things. Jehovah God will not destroy the righteous along with the wicked.
  • Likelyb

    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 ....."
  • Steven Massiah
    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.
