Pamphlet 1326 Joel kc 4-4

Let us now continue with Joel's description of the soon coming locust army!

Joel 2:4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
Horses are symbols of power and strength.

The locust army is a highly trained cavalry of spiritual thundering WARRIORS!

We read the same description of them in Revelation 9:

Rev. 9:7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
Remember, God uses the analogy of locusts just to paint a graphic PICTURE in our minds
of the devastation that is happening spiritually.

We can see swarming locusts consume a field or a tree,
but we cannot see with the flesh eye the spiritual devouring of the inner man, i.e. a soul.

Yet Joel makes it VERY CLEAR that the locust army of Revelation 9 are not insects, i.e. real locusts!

They are people set in battle array, i.e. prepared for war!

Joel 2:5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
This is spiritual warfare and the fire that devours is spirit!

But do not be deceived.

The tribulation of the false-christ is a time of peace and prosperity and religious revival.

The problem is that it is headed by the religious Beast of Revelation chapter 13,
that old sweet talkin' serpent from the garden of Eden (and the land shall be as Eden before them).

He will appear claiming to be Jesus Christ but he will be the abomination who maketh desolate the souls of men!

[6] Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
This verse just doesn't bring forth what is said in the Hebrew.

Take some initiative and look up the words "pained" and "blackness" in your Strong's Concordance.

It will be an awesome time which will cause many to turn pale, i.e. away from the truth.

You see, our people have no idea of the magnitude of this event,
though the Word of God declares time and again that there has never been anything like this in history,
nor ever shall there be again, because this generation will face the supernatural!

It is a time likened to the Flood of Noah
which came suddenly (though not without Noah trumpeting the warning from God)
and swept away all those who were eating and drinking and marrying with the "fallen angels" in Gen. 6.

Even those people who were warned had no idea of the magnitude of the flood!

Jesus drew this analogy of the Flood of Noah for us to "take heed" to in Matthew 24:39
"And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."

Blow ye the Trumpet in Zion!

Sound the alarm!

The flood of lies by Satan and the locust army are coming, BEFORE the 7th Trump sounds.

Tell the Children! Tell the Children!

[7] They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
These are analogies which simply show us in visual terms
that Satan's troops are the most highly trained and well organized "army" you have ever seen.
[8] Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
All for one, one for all!

The "swords" in the spiritual battle of the last days are not made of steel (Rev. 1:16).

[9] They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.

Locusts everywhere!

They will also take over the Four Hidden Dynasties, even as they are now ALREADY
controlled by the first beast, the political beast of Rev. 13.

Yes, the airwaves from the prince and power of the air already come right into your living room!

Haven't you noticed?

[10] The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
Do you know who the "stars" are that Joel is talking about here
who "shall withdraw their shining", i.e. whose lights will go out?

Read Genesis 37 and Revelation 12 and you will understand:

Genesis 37:9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
Hint: Joseph was the 12th star!
Rev. 12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
Yes, the "stars" are those of the true house of Israel (many of us who call ourselves Christians)
who are swallowed up in the great apostasy,
even those foolish virgins who did not have enough oil in their lamps to remain a light unto the end.

It is those stars who will "withdraw their shining"
when Rapture Boy shows up and sweeps them off their little feet and douses their lamps with his flood of lies!

Joel 2:11 And the LORD shall utter his voice before His army: for His camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
All that is yet to happen in the Plan of God is already written and it has been written for a very, very long time.

It is even written in the uncorrupted Zodiac of the heavens (Read appendix 12 in the Companion Bible).

Jesus Christ said in Mark 13:23 " But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things."

Therefore it should come as NO surprise that God calls this locust army "His Army"
for He has foretold us that He will bring it upon the land.

In fact, we already learned that Michael is in the control tower
and has delayed the departure of Flight 666 with Satan and his cronies aboard!

The locust army will arrive only when our Father says so,
for they can do nothing without His permission.

Which also means, if He tells them they cannot hurt one hair on the heads of His sealed servants,
though they walk through the valley of the swarming locusts, they have nothing to fear nor worry about.

You see, there is NO CONTEST for who is charge. The battle is for your soul, your love!

Col. 1:16 For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him:

[17] And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.

Satan is already history!

In fact he is called "death", "the son of perdition", which means "the son who will perish",
because our Father sentenced him to die in the lake of fire at the end of the Millennium and this earth age.

Therefore Satan is as good as dead,
but he shall be used to fulfill the negative part of God's plan
and he shall be cast out of heaven with his host of angels and used by our Father to chastise His unrepentant children.


Because He loves His children and He wants them to return to His open and loving arms!

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.
