Joel Chapter 3 Discussion

  • Chris - In Reply on Joel 3 - 1 year ago
    Apparently, in the Old English era (approx 7th Century AD till the 12th Century), the word used for 'vat' was 'fat' (also spelled 'faet', with the a and e conjoined). Then in the Middle English era (from the 12th Century till the 16th Century), it was changed to 'vat', but it seems that the KJV translators (in the 1600s) preferred to use the Old English (maybe they were in a transitional period where other spellings were interchangeable & accepted, or if those from a certain part of England still maintained the old spelling, thereby using the old spelling). In any case, even in the later KJV printings, that word was not updated (though my 1978 edition shows 'vats'), which is very interesting.
  • Benny R. Olsen on Joel 3 - 1 year ago
    I have looked at the spelling you provided about letters changing over time to other letters.

    In Joel 2:24 and 3:13 where it says "your fats will overflow with wine and oil". Seems it should

    be "vats" not "fats". I did not see in spelling anything about the f changing to a v or vice versa.

    Thanks and hope to hear from you.

    I usually fast so I can pray when I feel God leading me to do or say something to another person that would take courage on my part or impactful to the other person. I want to be doing and saying only what God would have me do or say-non of me and all of God. I usually would fast from all food, but liquids for a few days up to a week. AFter a few days, hunger subsides.

    Hi Harold . Personally I think there are many ways to fast , depending on what you enjoy in life . I drink one bottle of wine a week , if I wanted to fast I could deny myself that for maybe four weeks ? You could maybe not eat meat for one week , keep your t.v. off for a week ? It's only a real fast for me if I am giving up something I really love and enjoy , probably a bit to much .
  • Harold Cranford on Joel 3 - 2 years ago
    How does one fast?
  • English sacha - In Reply on Joel 3 - 2 years ago
    I sure hope so , I'm sure that somewhere in the Bible it says that the generation that sees Israel back in the land is the last generation , that happened in 1948 , then there was the six day war of 1967 , the year I was born . If I can find the reference I will post it on here .
  • Chris on Joel 3 - 2 years ago
    Suddenly we are the last generation.

    Down in the valley life hits you hard;

    It can be as painful as a broken glass shard.

    With Satan leading & controlling your mind;

    You will struggle & despair as you wander blind.

    No matter where you place your feet;

    without Jesus you'll eventually face eternal heat.

    Do yourself a favor,

    Give your soul over to the redeeming Savior.

    Look to Yeshua for intervention;

    for freedom, & sins prevention.

    When you finally realize Jesus is real;

    Your heart will soar as you fall under God's seal.

    Sin will still attempt to grab hold;

    but now you have the Holy Spirit, a way to live bold!

    Jesus Christ is nearer then ever before!!!

    Many in Israel are coming to a Saving knowledge in their Messiah.... many more will during the tribulation period.

    How do you arrive at this conclusion, Jimmy? If the 'Jerusalem Jews' are not the real Jews, nor for that matter, those Jews that are living in other parts of Israel & the world, then how can we deduce that the 'negros in America' are the true ones, given that Jacob, along with his ancestors & descendants, were not of African heritage? If anything, one would have to submit to the mixing of the races, removing the purity of many of the Jewish people.
  • Jimmy on Joel 3 - 3 years ago
    It is time for the truth to come. God is talking about the family of Jacob when he speaks about his people.

    remember God change Jacob's name to Israel. The people in Jerusalem are not the real Jew. The people he

    speaks of being scather is Negros in America.

    God Bless you Carey!! Just like Joel ch.2-28, mentioned dreams and visions, I believe from God.
  • Carey wyat on Joel 3:14 - 3 years ago
    i had a dream of a young jewish boy on a hill looking over a valley , i believe it was the valley of dicission , the judgement comming on the the harlot church , and the blessing comming on the true church , when he saw the judgement , and the blessing , he stood up and turned around and saw jesus behind him , and he ran to jesus , i believe when the jews see the gentiles in the coveanaut of abraham they will see jesus as the messiah .

    2nd Chronicles 7:14 Sums up not only the book of Joel but the entire Bible. God is telling us what we must do. We need to humble ourselves, pray and seek his face, and turn from our wicked way. Then will he hear from heaven and heal the land. This is a powerful scripture. We are truly living in the last days. Everything that happen in the Biblical days are happening today.

    Sin Separates

    In this chapter we see reasons for judgement as Sin separates people from God. In making application we see why Jesus had to come and why we must be saved. Because sin separates an unholy man from a holy God. How about you? Do you see your need for a Savior? Let us learn from our text today and Word of the Lord to see that sins separates man from God and the reason we must be Saved.

    I also think that if America and not other country turns to God and repent that life will get easier and he will heal are brand nation
  • Greg l goodman - In Reply on Joel 3 - 4 years ago
    the reason why you will still pray for them is that they will have a change of heart to accept jesus christ now we know all will not turn or accept the lord but there are some that will, God has left it up to us to tell people about jesus christ we plant the seed and God will do the rest this is why, and the jugdement is not just America but a lot of the European Nations (Edom) in other words God know who will accept or reject him but we still tell them
  • Obbie Beal on Joel 3 - 4 years ago
    2020 and GOD clock is counting down! 10, 9, 8, 7 whether we see or understand it because and again in the 3-chapters above GOD has issued NOTICE of HIS WILL. Personally I see the LIGHT of GOD at the end of the tunnel plus my seat at THE MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB thanks to JEHOVAH /GOD.... Thank GOD for life and especially SALVATION /ETERNAL LIFE through JESUS. John 3:16-21 WILL leads me, mama, daddy, sister, brother, children, to SALVATION if we /they will accept IT.
  • Adam on Joel 3 - 4 years ago
    The USA has had evil and corrupt politicians and leaders throughout history, but it is no more corrupt than most countries. Slavery for example was a global problem and the USA played a much smaller role in it than most countries and most were against it all along which is why the group supporting slavery lost the civil war over it.
  • Tee Lane - In Reply on Joel 3 - 4 years ago
    Vanessa you are totally correct in all that was stated. The reason the churches of today are not teaching true biblical principle is for many reasons such that mostly relates to financial gain for not telling the truth. If you go to the mega churches you will not hear the pastor preaching that sin will cause you to go to Hell, how to live a life pleasing unto the Lord. How the Lord honors marriage, how we should train up our children in the word and fear of God.
  • Tee Lane - In Reply on Joel 3 - 4 years ago
    Very true Diesel, and the fake jews in Israel will see that God has loved his people the Tribe of Judah..
  • Tee Lane - In Reply on Joel 3 - 4 years ago
    Why would we pray for the Lord to have mercy on America when the scripture has told us what is going to happen. Their is repayment for sin and God is coming back to judge this nation for the treatment of his people, however judgement will start in the church first.
  • Tee Lane - In Reply on Joel 3 - 4 years ago
    The Bible declares that " If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and heal their land ".
  • Tee Lane - In Reply on Joel 3 - 4 years ago
    Not only is sex trafficking a problem of today but rape and all manner of illicit sex also occurred during slavery until today.
  • Sara on Joel 3 - 4 years ago
    Joel 3:3 is clearly talking about little drag boys like Desmond is amazing and selling little girls that is the human sex trafficking going on at our ports and southern border here in america. This is my second time reading this verse and it just sticks out so much to me. This word is true and always will be. Jesus bless you all
  • Martha on Joel 3 - 4 years ago
    Derek prince the evangelist he read Joel 3 and got his healing. He read Isaiah 61 as well
  • Patty Tozi on Joel 3 - 4 years ago
    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
  • Jackie on Joel 3 - 4 years ago
    I think that if we humble our self and seek the Lord he will turn America around !!!!

    "Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompense?.." When evil dogs only want to always bite the hands that feed them; at what point do we have to stop giving them a hand to bite? People who want to be hateful and hostile and completely unreasonable, cannot forever be given a respect they refuse to be worthy of. LET THEM GO!
