Pamphlet 1318 Joel kc 2-3

Are you a tree which will be spiritually consumed by the locust army? Joel 1:8

Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.
Christians are to remain true and faithful and wait for their husband, Jesus Christ, to return. Paul even warned about remaining a chaste virgin in 2 Cor. 11:2 "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ."

However, many of you who have studied the Book of Hosea with us know that the 10 northern tribes of the House of Israel, with America as their leading nation today, have become spiritual whores and harlots and will already be spiritually married to the false Jesus, the antichrist, when their true Husband returns.

That is why Christ would say in Mark 13:17 concerning these last days "But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!" He was speaking of the spiritual seduction of the spurious messiah and his angels, made possible by the spiritual "famine", the lack of knowledge of His Word in these last days (Amos. 8:11)! In other words, our people cannot tell the difference between the false Jesus and the real Jesus. When you tell them there are two Jesus Christs, they look at you as if you are nuts!

[9] The meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the LORD; the priests, the LORD'S ministers, mourn.
There is no more sacrifice! The true "bread and wine" have been cut off. The abominable one has already been set up in the minds of most Christians so that when he comes and stands in the Holy Place they will surely follow after him and worship him as Christ. This is the great falling away, the great apostasy spoken of by the Apostle Paul in 2 Thes. 2.
[10] The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth.
The field is the world which the sons of Adam through Noah and his sons were suppose to farm, i.e. dress and keep and plant the seeds of truth and knowledge. You should know what the "bread" and "wine" symbolizes, and the "oil" which produces "light" for the virgins!

Here is the Hebrew definition of "oil" used in verse 10:

˜P yitsharyits-hawr'
From H6671; oil (as producing light); figuratively anointing:—+ anointed, oil.

Joel 1:11
Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished.
You farmers, you sons of Adam (eighth day Adam See our pamphlet  Eighth Day of Creation #7002 & #7003),you who should have been diligently working the fields, you should be ashamed of yourselves for allowing the fields to perish where there is virtually no fruit for the harvest at the end of this flesh age! In fact, it is written in Rev. 6 and elsewhere, that you will be ashamed when Yeshua returns.
[12] The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men.
The "sons of men" should read "the sons of adam".

Joy is gone because His blessings are gone as the curse of the false nation continues to consume every living thing, the green grass and all the trees of the field EXCEPT those men and woman who have the seal of God in their foreheads. Rev. 9:4 "And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads."

Do not be confused by the syntax of this verse. Remember,trees are symbolic of men,so if you are a man (no gender implied) without the seal of God, His Word, locked in your mind, then you will be a tree which will be spiritually consumed by the locust army.

Tell it to the Children! Tell it to their Children! and to your great-grandchildren!

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.
