The pouring out of the Truth
The apostle Peter on that first Pentecost Day, 10 days after the ascension of Jesus Christ, very emphatically documented that the Book of Joel was written concerning the sons and daughters of the "last days". It is therefore imperative, if we are in those last days (which we are), and if we are of those sons and daughters (which we are), that we take some extra time and really understand what our Father would have us know through Joel the prophet.
It is also written and made explicitly clear in Acts 2 that what was being spoken of by the Holy Spirit through the servants of God on that day were the "Wonderful works of God", which Peter promptly stood up and said was what would happen, i.e. the works of God, in these last days, even the pouring out of the Truth AND the witness before the representatives of all nations and languages! Those works we find written in Revelation are accomplished by the sons and daughters of the churches of Philadelphia and Smyrna, respectively and collectively.
Are you familiar with those "Wonderful works"? We learned in our last study that a "marvelous work" whereby His doctrine, His Spirit of Truth, the former and the latter rain, would be poured out upon all flesh through His servants and His handmaidens, the sons and daughters of the last days, the final generation of the fig tree. We also learned that there is a great and spiritually dreadful locust army that shall soon descend upon the land when Satan and his angels are cast out of heaven at the sound of the 6th Trump upon a world that will believe the 7th Trump has sounded and Jesus Christ has returned. The false shepherds have prepared our people through the false doctrine of the any-moment Rapture Theory to accept the first supernatural entity who appears as an angel of light!Acts 2:11
... we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
Then too, we documented that the "smoke from the bottomless pit" is that lengthened duration of time following the "Cold War" when the 1st Beast of Rev. 13:1 rises up out of the sea (people) and causes the waves (nations) to roar, while the 5th Trumpet of Grace heralds its coming, its arrival, and sounds the alarm that the 6th Trump is about to sound!
So let us look once again at what "signs" Joel gave us that tell us when the locust army is coming, and also what the Wonderful Works of God are that have been and yet must be accomplished before the Day of Lord and the return of the true Bridegroom, Jesus Christ?
Let's review Joel 2:28 and be sure not to miss our next Pamphlet #1333:
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
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.
