THE LORD’S JOEL MESSAGE IN THIS DAY
DEMONSTRATES HIS FAITHFULNESS THROUGHOUT TIME
A VISION CAME TO ME on July 14, 2010 ~ at 5:30 PM. I was resting, not asleep! Then, suddenly, I was translated to an unknown place, where I was shown something that was totally unexpected as I had had no thoughts about the person or the scene shown to me.
I SAW A MAN. He was a young and slender man of color whom I had never seen and did not recognize. He was departing/EXITING from the LEFT SIDE DOOR of a building AS IF STEPPING ON THE AIR ITSELF. He walked with exacting, deliberate steps, and he kept his face focused forward!
I do not know this person, nor do I fully recognize the location. I recognized the building was a church, even though I saw no symbols of a church. I only know that it represents a church-place. It is not a place where I see fancy stained windows, elegant doors, or a steeple. And the door which I see is a side door, through which one might quickly exit.
I was allowed to witness this happening from the above place, WITH the BREATH CLOUD, which was hovering above me! I seemed to be suspended in the air, but close to the earth...within the earth’s atmosphere.
MY REACTION: I had great wonderings, and asked, “What is the significance of this which I see? What is being shown to me, LORD?”
- From ABOVE the answer came and seemed to come from..."A SPEAKING BREATH"...SO CLOSE... Saying: “THIS IS JO-EL...JO-EL.
- HE WILL BE VISITING MANY OTHER CHURCHES.” (The name Joel means, “Yahweh is God.”)
This sent me in search of the meanings of the word “VISITING” while staying focused on the import of the Name: Yahweh is God.
- He will be visiting in an official capacity.
- There will be frequent visits to many churches.
- He will reside with each, temporarily, to oversee or inspect what is happening there for the CHILDREN.
I also sensed that JO-EL IS BEING SENT WITH THE JOEL MESSAGE OF THE SCRIPTURES...FOR THE END TIMES…THE LORD’S MESSAGE OF JUDGMENT AND THE HOPE OF REPENTANCE. Jo-el is taking care of Kingdom Business relative the churches as we know them, and as it relates to the KINGDOM PROSPECTIVE! I went immediately to the Book of Joel in the Bible. The first words that I saw were “TELL THE CHILDREN.”
The word of the Lord that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.
Hear this, you elders,
And give ear, all you inhabitants of the land!
Has anything like this happened in your days,
Or even in the days of your fathers?
Tell your children about it,
Let your children tell their children,
And their children another generation.
Joel 1:1-3 (NKJV)
AS THE LORD WAS AWARE, the last Scripture that He had led me to read (before this vision) was from Luke 23:27-29, in which Jesus spoke to the lamenting Women of Jerusalem, who wept as He carried the Cross.
“And a great multitude of the people followed Him,
and women who also mourned and lamented Him.
But Jesus, turning to them, said,
“Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me,
but weep for yourselves and for your children.
For indeed the days are coming in which they will say,
‘Blessed are the barren, wombs that never bore,
and breasts which never nursed!’”
MY LORD had, indeed, prepared me to read the three (3) short Chapters in the Book of Joel so the I (and you) might understand its significance—that WE, the people of God, must PASS ON “THE STORY” of the Gospel—and the stories of what the LORD has done on our lives and in our societies. Our Children, our Grandchildren, and the yet Un-born MUST KNOW ALL THESE TRUTHS!
BUT, MOST OF ALL THEY MUST HEAR THE GOSPEL MESSAGE OF THE FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS.
THEY MUST KNOW, THE POWER OF THE CROSS--FULLY UNDERSTOOD—SO THAT THEY WILL UNDERSTAND THE DEEP AND ABIDING LOVE OF OUR FATHER, GOD—AND THEIR TRUE INHERITANCE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the Message,and the Message is heard through the Word about Christ. - Romans 10:17 (NIV)
“Telling the Story to the Yet Un-born…” These Story/Truths were told and retold, by our ancient ancestors; then they were scribed, and later printed, speaking the Truth of the Cross, in statements made twenty-eight (28) times in the New Testament! Therefore, WE the Church—Parents and Grandparents--must become more bold about telling the stories of God’s Love to our children, especially how He has manifested His Love, Grace, and Mercy in our lives!
THE PROPHET JOEL ALSO SAID:
…I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams,
your young men will see visions.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days.
(Joel 1: 28-29, NIV)
ONLY THROUGH HEARING GOD’S STORY (and observing our lives), will our children and our children’s children be prepared for the Spirit of God when He pours Truths into them through dreams and visions.
We have come to a time when more WARNINGS will be made known to us. The children must be ready to receive, understand and act, so that multitudes will KNOW the POWER of the CROSS, and what awaits their eternal lives.
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision!
For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
The sun and moon will be darkened,
and the stars no longer shine.
The Lord will roar from Zion
and thunder from Jerusalem;
the earth and the heavens will tremble.
But the Lord will be a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel. (Joel 3: 14-16, NIV)
YES, GOD IS FAITHFUL to those who belong to Him, and I encourage everyone to read this Book of JOEL, a small yet powerfully instructive part of the Bible. Even though Joel’s descriptions of natural disasters are vivid, and may quicken the heartbeat, we must hear God’s appeal in those written Words—to run to Him—and be gathered into His arms.
THE LORD WILL DWELL IN ZION! HIS JUSTICE AND JUDGMENT WILL PREVAIL!
“For I am the LORD—I do not change.
That is why you are not already utterly destroyed,
for My Mercy endures forever.
Though you have scorned My laws from earliest time,
yet you may still return to me,” says the LORD Almighty.
“Come and I will forgive you.”
(Malachi 3: 6-7 TLB)
