Joel 2:12-27

As I opened the Word, this scripture in Joel was enlightened. Please read it carefully and share. We are called to repent!

Therefore also now, said the LORD, turn you even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn to the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repents him of the evil.

Who knows if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering to the LORD your God?

Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare your people, O LORD, and give not your heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: why should they say among the people, Where is their God?

 

Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.

Yes, the LORD will answer and say to his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and you shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:

But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill smell shall come up, because he has done great things.

Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.

Be not afraid, you beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree bears her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.

Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he has given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.

And I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

And you shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that has dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.

And you shall know that I am in the middle of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.

 Aun ahora–declara el SEÑOR
          volved a mí de todo corazón,
          con ayuno, llanto y lamento.
 Rasgad vuestro corazón y no vuestros vestidos;
          volved ahora al SEÑOR vuestro Dios,
          porque El es compasivo y clemente,
          lento para la ira, abundante en misericordia,
          y se arrepiente de infligir el mal.
 ¿Quién sabe si volverá y se apiadará,
          y dejará tras sí bendición,
          es decir, ofrenda de cereal y libación
          para el SEÑOR vuestro Dios?
 Tocad trompeta en Sion,
          promulgad ayuno, convocad asamblea,
 reunid al pueblo, santificad la asamblea,
          congregad a los ancianos,
          reunid a los pequeños y a los niños de pecho.
          Salga el novio de su aposento
          y la novia de su alcoba.
 Entre el pórtico y el altar,
          lloren los sacerdotes, ministros del SEÑOR,
    y digan: Perdona, oh SEÑOR, a tu pueblo,
          y no entregues tu heredad al oprobio,
          a la burla entre las naciones.
          ¿Por qué han de decir entre los pueblos:
          “Dónde está su Dios?

 

 Entonces el SEÑOR se llenará de celo por su tierra,
          y tendrá piedad de su pueblo.
 El SEÑOR responderá, y dirá a su pueblo:
          He aquí, yo os enviaré grano, mosto y aceite,
          y os saciaréis de ello,
          y nunca más os entregaré al oprobio entre las naciones.
Al ejército del norte lo alejaré de vosotros
          y lo echaré a una tierra árida y desolada,
          su vanguardia hacia el mar oriental,
          y su retaguardia hacia el mar occidental.
          Y ascenderá su hedor y subirá su fetidez,
          porque ha hecho terribles cosas.
 No temas, oh tierra, regocíjate y alégrate,
          porque el SEÑOR ha hecho grandes cosas.
 No temáis, bestias del campo,
          porque los pastos del desierto han reverdecido,
          porque el árbol ha dado su fruto,
          la higuera y la vid han producido en abundancia.
 Hijos de Sion, regocijaos
          y alegraos en el SEÑOR vuestro Dios;
          porque El os ha dado la lluvia temprana para vuestra vindicación,
          y ha hecho descender para vosotros la lluvia,
  la lluvia temprana y la tardía como en el principio.
 Y las eras se llenarán de grano,
          y las tinajas rebosarán de mosto y de aceite virgen.
 Entonces os compensaré por los años
          que ha comido la langosta,
          el pulgón, el saltón y la oruga,
          mi gran ejército, que envié contra vosotros.
 Tendréis mucho que comer y os saciaréis,
          y alabaréis el nombre del SEÑOR vuestro Dios,
          que ha obrado maravillosamente con vosotros;
          y nunca jamás será avergonzado mi pueblo.
 Y sabréis que en medio de Israel estoy yo,
          y que yo soy el SEÑOR vuestro Dios
          y no hay otro;
          nunca jamás será avergonzado mi pueblo.

We also need to repent. We need to fall on our faces before the Lord. God will bless us and keep us as long as we turn all of ourselves over to Him. Let the ears hear!
