Joel’s Jolts — Powerful Words From An Old Testament Prophet

Joel is an Old Testament prophet whose words will give you a jolt.  Are you ready for a jumping Joel jolt?  Here are some quotes from Joel:

“The word of the Lord that came to Joel, son of Pethuel.”

“Hear this, you elders; listen, all who live in the land.”

“Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly . . . and cry out to the Lord.”

“Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on My holy hill.  Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming.  It is close at hand.”

“The Lord thunders at the head of His army; His forces are beyond number, and mighty are those who obey His command.”

“Even now, declares the Lord, return to Me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.  Rend your heart and not your garments.  Return to the Lord your God for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and He relents from sending calamity.  Who knows?  He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing.”

“And afterward, 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.”

“Let the weakling say, I am strong.”

“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision!  For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”
