 Lesson 8 "That Fearsome Locust Army" from The Book of Joel

Details of that fearsome locust army from the 9th chapter of Revelation.
Joel 1:3 Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.

Tell your generations and their generations until the last generation (of sons and daughters) is here, which is the generation when all these things He has foretold us shall be fulfilled (Mat. 24:34). And He has foretold us all things, the details of which He told us through His prophets: Mark 13:23 "But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things." By the way, if your father or one of your forefathers has broken this commandment of God in Joel 1:3 to tell your children His words contained herein, then YOU get busy studying His Word and learn the truth and restart the process with your children.  John 14:15 "If ye love me, keep my commandments."

Locusts, Locusts, Everywhere!

 We learned from the book named "Yah is El" the good news that in the last days "whosoever shall call on", which also means to publish as in proclaim or herald, "the name of the LORD shall be delivered, for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance". Mount Zion and Jerusalem is where the "deliverance" shall be because that is where the Deliverer will be when He returns as King of kings following the finished works of the churches of Philadelphia and Smyrna , i.e. the teaching and witnessing of the sons and daughters of the final generation that Joel has been talking about.

We also learned that some of those spiritually rich Christian Soldiers from the Church of Smyrna shall be cast into prison and delivered up before the kings and rulers of the earth who sit in the councils* controlled by those liars and deceivers of the synagogue of Satan. Jesus Christ described the works they shall do when they are delivered up:

Mark 13:9
But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
Satan and legal counselors will "beat up" on them with fiery darts!
[10] And the gospel must first be published [i.e. proclaimed] among all nations.
* John's Note: If you were to stand in front of the UN Security Council or the group of kings and rulers assembled at the "Millennium Summit" whose photo we posted earlier in our study, you would be facing representatives of all nations and peoples and tongues, just like on Pentecost day, ain't? Think about it!

Yes, His willing and faithful servants shall be His instruments in proclaiming the final witness of the gospel and the coming judgment AMONG ALL NATIONS and it is written that the Holy Spirit shall speak through them in the same manner as the example set forth on that first Pentecost day following Christ's resurrection:

Mark 13:11
But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
Once the witnessing "among all nations" has been accomplished according to the Word of God and those nations have chosen their path in the face of that witness, then shall it be "that time" for the restoration of His people and the judgment of the nations as it is written in Matthew 25:31-32.
Matthew 25:31
When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
Your loved ones who loved the Lord and have passed on are with Him now (1 Thes. 4:13-18). They are those holy angels, those saints clothed in fine white linen (Rev. 19:14), those onward Christian Soldiers, who shall return following the King of kings and riding upon their white horses.
[32] And before Him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
Joel is now going to expound upon this gathering of all nations which follows the witness of those saints who are delivered up and give His testimony. And it is written time after time after time in the scriptures, then "they shall know the LORD is God (Jo-El)". And when that King of kings returns with His saints who shall execute His rod of iron (discipline) then shall all the nations be recompensed for their decisions. That's right, it's pay day and everyone will get exactly what is coming to them in the righteous judgment of the Lord "according to their deeds". It is called true justice for God is no respecter of persons nor does He judge by appearance (Jn. 7:24) but by righteous judgment, a liberal's nightmare indeed! You reap what you sow, remember?
Jeremiah 25:14
For many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of them also: and I will recompense them according to their deeds, and according to the works of their own hands.

Romans 2:6
Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

Let's begin Joel's description of the judgment of the nations.
Joel 3:1
For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,
The Hebrew word translated captive is "shebuwth" which means figuratively "a former state of prosperity". In other words, Judah and Israel shall be restored to glory and prosperity and joined back together into one stick when the true Messiah returns (Ezek. 37:15-17). We read of that gathering back to Him in the Book of Hosea, the book of the salvation of Israel.
[2] I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
The valley of Jehoshaphat is both the "valley of decision" (vs. 14) and the "valley of Judgment" (Jehoshaphat means "YHVH judges"). In fact, it is simply the valley where the Lord judges the nations for the decisions they have made and the way they have treated His children. Remember, and make no mistake about it, i.e. be not deceived into thinking anyone gets away with mocking God or His children, God will recompense to every nation and to every man according to his deeds:
Galatians 6:7
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Pay day is coming. You can count on it! And what have the nations of the world done?
Joel 3:3
And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
They have trafficked and made merchandise of the children of God. In other words they have sold His sons and daughters "down the drain", right into the slavery of the harlot, the great whore, the one world political and religious system with whom the nations of the earth have committed fornication (harlotry) and become drunken with her wine:
Rev. 17:1
And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

[2] With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

This is further documented by the next verse in Joel which identifies the wicked nation of Hemath (remember them from the beginning of this study in Joel?):
Joel 3:4
Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head;
You may recall if you have studied Ezekiel 27 that the "little rock" island of Tyre, along with her plundering sister Zidon (Sidon) on the seacoast, was the World Wide Trading Center of the ancient world, a type and forerunner of the New World Order (NWO), which was headed and controlled by the kenites, even as the NWO is today. And in Ezekiel 28 we learned that the king of Tyre (Tyre means "rock" in Hebrew) is none other than the little rock who is not our Rock, i.e. but Satan himself.

The question is: "Do they think they can render a recompense to God, i.e. buy Him off with that which they have stolen and with that which already rightfully belongs to Him?" Give me physical break!

[5] Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things:
They, the kenites, have ripped off His people through their deceptive political practices and their usurious, unholy economic central banking systems.
[6] The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.
In other words, they sold the children unto the Javanites who "trafficked in slavery" and who carried them to distant lands! Pay close attention to this verse because it holds the "according to their deeds" key to the judgment of the sons and daughters of Tyre and Zidon, i.e. the kenites. But also know that neither distance nor oceans afar off can prevent the Lord God from gathering His people. And those traffickers of His people are gonna get what's coming to them!
[7] Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head:
God will do the redeeming and restoring of His people and those traffickers and merchandisers of His people shall get their gourds thumped for their evil deeds and get a taste of their own medicine, as we say. You want to see precious righteous judgment in the manner of "according to their deeds"? Here it is:
Joel 3:8
And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it.
Oh this is precious justice if you can understand what Joel has said. You see, as it is written the children of Kingdom will now be given the crowns of the earth and will be in charge under the command of the King of kings. We could read of this many places but let's read it in Rev. 5:
Rev. 5:9
And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

[10] And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Well, the sons and daughters of Tyre and Zidon, the kenites, who not only made captives and slaves of God's people but have even more oppressively enslaved the gentiles, the ethnic peoples whom we call minorities in our land, through their divisive class envy agendas and socialist entitlement programs that strip them of their spirit and dignity as a proud people. Joel 3:8 declares that the sons and daughters of Tyre and Zidon are going to be "sold to the Sabeans" and become the "slavees" instead of the "slaveers or slave masters"! Got it? Now let's learn who the Sabeans are.
Sabeans = ˜Lsheba�Œysheb-aw-ee'
Patronymic from H7614; a Shebaite or descendant of Sheba:—Sabean.

Sheba = ˜Lsheba�sheb-aw'
Of foreign origin; Sheba, the name of three early progenitors of tribes and of an Ethiopian district:—Sheba, Sabeans.

The Sabeans were "a people a far off" even from "a far off nation of Africa".

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
