The Days of Joel
I heard a voice say, “Write, for these things are faithful and true.” Again, I was with the Lord in the Spirit. He was high and lifted up, and His voice was like thunder.
“Behold, O earth, these things are, were and are to come. I am the First and the Last. Serve Me, the Creator, for I give life, not death. Arise from your evil and call upon Me, and I will heal and deliver you. The things you read in this book are true, and they will soon come to pass.
“Repent, for the time is at hand, and the Lord of glory will soon appear. Be ready, for you do not know the day nor the hour. Great shall be the reward of those who await My coming. I will bless My little ones, those that have kept the faith and have served Me in truth and righteousness. Before they know it, it will be upon them. I have prepared a blessing for those who have been faithful to their calling and those that have not denied My name. “I say, if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray, I will forgive them and heal them and restore their losses. I desire to hear, to deliver, and to save all who ” believe and call upon My name.’
“Sanctify a fast. Call a solemn assembly. Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the lands into My house, and cry unto Me. Alas, for the day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night-the day is at hand.”
“Trust Me, and I will restore unto you the years the locusts, the canker worm, the caterpillar and the palmer worm have eaten.”
“My great army which I have called will not break their ranks nor their stride. They will do marvelous exploits, and they shall not be conquered, for I am their strength. Their voices will sound like I the trumpet, like the thunders will they sound, and all will hear and know that I am the Lord your God.”
Dear Lord Jesus, it is my prayer that I be counted worthy to be in this army. I want to be in this army, but I know I must be pure and holy as Jesus is pure and holy. By the blood Jesus shed, cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Help me to keep a repentant heart, free of all hatred and bitterness.
Father, I know that many of Your people are asleep. I fear You will have to break our vessels of clay and humble us if there are to be fruits of righteousness.
Lord, I do not want to go to hell again and have to stay there. O Lord, help me to warn the people. Give me power to stop hell from enlarging itself. Help me and Your people to be good, kindhearted, forgiving and loving to one another. Help us to speak the truth at all times.
I know that Jesus Christ is returning soon, and His rewards are with Him. I know that my message to the world is “Repent, for the day of the Lord is at hand.” Father, I do not want the blood of this people on my hands.
