June 21, Joel 3:1-8

June 21, Joel 3:1-8

There's a lot here in these 8 verses.  A prophecy of God judging all nations, this could refer to the end of days, when God judges all of mankind or it could be any one of a number of times when God brought His people back.  Possibly a bit of each.  Some things I find striking are the levels of carnality spoken of here.  You traded a boy for a prostitute and a girl for wine.  This isn't unique to the times, all around the world children both boys and girls are traded and sold for any number of lusts, another example of how the nature of man at a base level simply doesn't change.  There is judgment for people who have cheated Israel in business, and for those who sold them out to other nations.  It says here Greeks but I think of all the so called peace negotiations that included giving parts of Israel to Palestine.  Nations doing this are selling out God's people, there's an impending judgment coming.
