  • Points to a date of approximately 835 BC.
  • Prophetic judgment on the southern kingdom of Judah, frequent references to Zion and temple worship (Joel 1:13–14; 2:23, 32; 3:16, 21)


why is joel so important
Why is Joel so Important?
  • First to develop “the day of the Lord,” most striking and specific details in all of Scripture
    • days cloaked in darkness
    • armies that conquer like consuming fire
    • the moon turning to blood
  • This time of ultimate judgment, still future for us today (2 Thess 2:2; 2 Pet 3:10), makes clear the seriousness of God’s judgment on sin
the day of the lord
The Day of the Lord

Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we ask you, brothers, not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that theday of the Lord has come. Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God…

2 Thess. 2:1-4

the day of the lord1
The Day of the Lord

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

2 Peter 3:9-10

how do i apply this
How Do I Apply This?
  • Future visions (Joel, Rev) can often seem remote from our day-to-day existence
  • Vivid pictures of destruction awaken us from our spiritual stupor (complacency?)
  • Open our eyes to faithfully following after God every moment of your life

The Judge and Our Redeemer is Coming!
