Once again, we
see another source of the false gospel that is so prevalent today.

I Timothy 6:20,21
- O Timothy, keep that which is committed
to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science
falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith.
Grace be with thee. Amen.
2:16 - But shun profane and vain babblings:
for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
When this book
'took place' was not indicated in the book itself.
usually consider Joel to be one of the earliest of the prophets of Judah,
in the time of Joash (about 830 B.C)
in the rein of Uzziah (about 750 - B.C.).
So much for Biblical
word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.
this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land.

ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children,
their children another generation.
4-6 - That which the palmerworm hath left
hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm
eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpillar eaten.
Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because
of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth. For a nation is come
up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth
of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.
Joel is not
about the rapture!
- A worm covered with hair; supposed to be so called because he wanders
over all plants.
- A worm, destructive to trees or plants. In America, this name
is given to a worm that, in some years, destroys the leaves and fruit of
apple trees and springs from an egg deposited by a miller that issues from
Not about the 'Today's
Joel is about
the last days - the second coming of Christ.

Trumpet - Joel
Joel 1:15 -
Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a
destruction from the Almighty shall it come.
Joel 2:15 -
the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
Joel 2:1 -Blow
ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain:
all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh,
for it is nigh at hand;
Joel 2:11 -
And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp
is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the
day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
Joel 2:31 -
The sun shall be turned into darkness,
and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD
Joel 3:14 -

is NOT King James)
(but I leave these
quotes in their modern format to show the increase in number of "Bible
Believers" who are following teachings from modern versions, even though
they claim to be 'Bible Believers.')
This all certainly
seems to be the common teaching by the modern churches / Rick Warren's,
etc. and The Great Commissioners!
Era - “I will pour out my Spirit on all people.… And everyone who
calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.… Swing the sickle, for the
harvest is ripe.”
The big difference
is the word 'on' when the KJB says 'upon.'
It is a huge difference,
especially when looked at it today!
Holy Spirit today
is IN us as we are circumcised spiritually; the Holy Spirit will be 'upon'
them during the tribulation, just as Peter states in Acts
multitudes in the valley of decision - Haley says is the 'harvest'
of souls that the fields are talked about being white for...
will institute an era of world evangelization under the leadership of the
Holy Spirit (Acts 2:16–21).
to be a picture of the Christian age, in which God's Word, embodied in
the Gospel of Christ, and borne by the gracious influences of the Holy
Spirit to all mankind, would be the sickle, in a grand harvest of souls.
2:17 Peter quotes Joel
2:28-32 as a prediction of the day
he was inaugurating. This means that God intended the passage to
be a forecast of the Gospel era.
And with all that
teaching of the Gospels days for today, note the opening paragraph:
Joel is a book
of Coming Judgment.
it forecasts the Earth's Harvests (3:13,14;
All of this is
the typical confusion of today's 'Christian Religion!'
In Joel, we also
see the terribleness of God's judgment!
just the opposite of the modern plowshares movements.
Why do they pick
instead of Joel?
plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears: let the weak
say, I am strong.
And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and
they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks:
nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn
war any more.
Micah 4:3 -
And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off;
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into
pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither
shall they learn war any more.
Make war, not
Christ would make
peace but only through Paul for now - when He returns, peace will come
We also see how
God will comfort His people.
Folks, come on - we are NOT seeing God's
judgment today - anywhere!
No hurricanes, weather disasters, etc.
Nothing yet compares to what God's judgment will be!
2:11 - And
the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great:
for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great
and very terrible; and who can abide it?
see Revelation 19:15 - And
out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the
nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the
winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
Response should be: vs 12,13 - Therefore
also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with
fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and
not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious
and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of
15,16 - The sun
and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem;
and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope
of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
vs 17 - So shall
ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain:
then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through
her any more.
3:19-21 - Egypt
shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the
violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent
blood in their land. But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from
generation to generation. For I will cleanse their blood that I have not
cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion.
