THE PROPHECY OF JOEL - a tree on the banks of the river

The variety of locust plagues in the Book of Joel mirror the perilous difficulties in our society today.
WHAT IS THIS
The prophecy of Joel gives us a description of the season in which we live.

It supports the truth that ALL can be involved in formulating and fulfilling the Will of God.

Joel tells us

1. exactly what is happening now,
2. exactly what we are to do,
3. exactly what He will do.

What is happening now -

1. Perilous difficulties are stripping  the land of its vitality.
2. There is the absence of the Lord.
WHAT YOU DO
Now, therefore, says the Lord.

1. Turn to Me with all your heart.
2. With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning, rend your heart, and not your garments.
3. Return to the Lord your God.
OUTCOMES
The Lord will respond and do marvellous things.

1. “It shall come to pass that I will pour out my Spirit on ALL.” Acts 2:17

2. We are all brought into the intimacy of the Trinity.

3. We all play a part in the outworking of the Holy Trinity to both help shape and fulfil the Word of God.
