The Prophets
What is the Day of the Lord?

The prophet Joel speaks about this day where evil empires will be brought low and God’s people will be finally delivered from corrupt human systems. It’s a great deliverance that generates hope for God’s people living amidst the consequences of sin and injustice.

Joel also speaks about the promise of the messianic King and the arrival of God’s Spirit. He prophesied that God’s people would be filled with visions, dreams, and the power of the Spirit. We see many of Joel’s prophecies fulfilled in the New Testament, specifically in the events at Pentecost.

Justice Will Not Prevail

Though Israel's sin is never specifically mentioned in the book, Joel is clear that God will not allow evil to continue wreaking havoc on his good world. He will deliver his people and bring the new creation and his Spirit to his followers.
