The Day of the Lord and the Locusts
- Monday, February 23, 2015
Joel’s message of “The Day of the Lord” mixes prophecies about current-day events, coming historical events, and ultimate end-time events. “The Day of the Lord,” as Joel uses the expression, can refer to a variety of events in which God works: chastisement, judgment, deliverance, blessing, and more. Joel exhorts us that each day—past, present, and future—should be considered the day of the Lord and challenges us to see the hand of God in everything that happens to us.
