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!

Isaiah 35:4

Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.

Decid a los de corazón tímido: Esforzaos, no temáis. He aquí, vuestro Dios viene con venganza; la retribución vendrá de Dios mismo, mas El os salvará.

Fear is not from God. We need not fear anything. God has a mighty and wonderful plan for all that trust in Him. He will justify and make all right that has been wrong. We just need to trust and know that He will. Praise Him!

Isaiah 41:10-13

10Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

11Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.

12Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.

13For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.

 

10 No temas, porque yo estoy contigo;
no te desalientes, porque yo soy tu Dios.
Te fortaleceré, ciertamente te ayudaré,
sí, te sostendré con la diestra de mi justicia.
11 He aquí, todos los que se enojan contra ti serán avergonzados y humillados;
los que contienden contigo serán como nada y perecerán.
12 Buscarás a los que riñen contigo, pero no los hallarás;
serán como nada, como si no existieran, los que te hacen guerra.
13 Porque yo soy el SEÑOR tu Dios, que sostiene tu diestra,
que te dice: “No temas, yo te ayudaré.

 

What a wonderful scripture. This is Words for us if we trust in God. These words speak for themselves and nothing I write or say could give any more meaning to it.

Isaiah 8:11-13

11For the LORD spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying,

12Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.

13Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.

11 Pues así me habló el SEÑOR con gran poder y me instruyó para que no anduviera en el camino de este pueblo, diciendo:
12 No digáis: “Es conspiración,
a todo lo que este pueblo llama conspiración,
ni temáis lo que ellos temen, ni os aterroricéis.
13 Al SEÑOR de los ejércitos es a quien debéis tener por santo.
Sea El vuestro temor,
y sea El vuestro terror.

Just because everyone else is doing it doesn’t make it right. We need to heed God and His paths for us even if it means going against everyone else.

Psalms 78:53-58

And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies. And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased. He cast out the nations also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents. Yet they tested and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies: But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow. For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.

los guió con seguridad, de modo que no temieron, pero el mar se tragó a sus enemigos. Los trajo, pues, a su tierra santa, a esta tierra montañosa que su diestra había adquirido. Y expulsó a las naciones de delante de ellos; las repartió con medida por herencia, e hizo habitar en sus tiendas a las tribus de Israel. Empero ellos tentaron y provocaron al Dios Altísimo, y no guardaron sus testimonios, sino que se volvieron atrás y fueron desleales como sus padres; se desviaron como arco engañoso. Pues le provocaron con sus lugares altos, y despertaron sus celos con sus imágenes talladas.

God keeps us safe and is before us when enemies come against us. I pray I act not like these people and turn away. God please forgive me if I have turned to the right or left. I ask You to help me please keep my eyes always on You. You have blessed me in so many ways and I just have  praise for You; that is all I have to offer You my Lord and King. Thank You Father, thank You Jesus and thanks to the Holy Spirit!
