Joel 2:12-27 THE LORD WILL DO GREAT THINGS Joel - Jehovah is God.

I. A Picture Of Desolation 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? A. They Faced Devastation – 1:4 That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpiller eaten. B. Destruction – 1:5-7; – They also faced invasion from surrounding nations. C. Desolation – 1:10 The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth. D. Discipline – 1:15 Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come. 2. A Plea For Dedication 1 FOR PREPARATION 2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; (a) Sound an Alarm (b) Summon an Assembly 15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: (c) Solicit an Appeal 2:17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God? 2 FOR PENITENCE 2:12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: (a) The Reason for Penitence 12 Therefore 2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; 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? Because Of Who Comes, When He Comes, & Why He Comes. (b) The Request for Penitence v 12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, This was a Divine Requirement, a Distinct Requirement, & a Direct Requirement. (c) The Reality Of Penitence v 12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: It Was to Be :- Spontaenous Therefore also now, Specific turn ye even to me Sincere with all your heart, Sacrificial and with fasting, Sensitive and with weeping, and with mourning:

3 FOR PRAYER 13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Joel was a revivalist. He called for :- A SWEEPING REVIVAL. What is needed today is a stirring of God's Spirit among all ages. A WEEPING REVIVAL: Joel 1:13 Gird yourselves, and lament, ye priests: howl, ye ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God: for the meat offering and the drink offering is withholden from the house of your God. James 4:9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. David tells us that what God wants is a broken and contrite heart. Nehemiah wept. Paul warned men night and day with tears. Jesus wept. Rom 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. - We had better groan a little for ourselves! Joel 2:17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God? A REAPING REVIVAL Joel 2:18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.19 Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen: 3. A Promise Of Deliverance
