Pamphlet 1312 Joel kc 1-2

 All you who are in charge of your families (Joel 1:3). Ask yourselves if you have ever seen anything like this before in your life that is even anywhere close to what I'm about to tell you?

Joel 1:1
The word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.
Our Father lets us know that these are His words, not man's, that He has given us through His servant Joel, the son of Pethuel, whose name means "vision man of God". That's cool, because it is written in this book that in the last days the young men, i.e. the sons and daughters of the prophets, will see (understand) visions, i.e. the visions God gave to their fathers, like the one we are studying now!
[2] Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?
Listen closely and take heed ye elders, all you who are in charge of your families (vs. 3). Ask yourselves if you have ever seen anything like this before in your life that is even anywhere close to what I'm about to tell you? So pay attention, listen and learn, and then pass it on!
[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."

Editors Note: (If you have studied the Parable of the Fig Tree (#7009) which Christ commanded us to do in Mat. 24 and Mark 13, then you are one of those who know that "final generation", the one which would not pass away before Christ returns, began on May 15, 1948, when the fig tree was planted in the land of Judea when the UN gave sanction to the State of Israel! Yes, there will be Baby Boomers who shall see all these things fulfilled!)

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." Fellow Christian be wise, Joel 1:3 is a commandment! and Jesus said, "if you love me keep it"

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.
