June 22, Joel 3:9-16
In Isaiah 2 God says turn your swords to plowshares, here He says the opposite. There will someday be a time of universal peace but that time won't come until Christ returns. There will also be times of war when every able bodied person should prepare to fight. In this prophecy the nations are rising against Israel and God is calling all of His people to battle. I know some that believe the armor of God is sufficient, that we wrestle with spiritual forces. While that is true, sometimes those spiritual forces use mundane weapons. I won't debate gun control but Jesus told His disciples that a day would come when a man should have a sword. We should be ready to defend ourselves against any attack, spiritual or mundane.
