Once the Holy Ghost was received the Apostles entered into a dark, wicked and sin-filled world. So will the new Disciples enter into a dark, evil and sin-filled world? As the Prophet, Joel’s prophecies were described by Commentary in Joel 1:8-13 All who labor for the meat which perishes, will, sooner or later, be ashamed of their labor. Those that place their happiness in the delights of sense, when deprived of them, or disturbed in the enjoyment, lose their joy.
Whereas spiritual pleasure then flourishes more than ever. See what perishing, uncertain things our creature-comforts are. See how we need to live in continual dependence upon God and his providence. See what ruinous work sin makes. As far as poverty occasions the decay of deity of piety, and starves the cause of religion among people, it is a very severe judgment. But how blessed are the awakening judgments of God, in rousing his people and calling home the heart to Yeshua, and his salvation?
Our mission will be to Re-establish God’s church in the heart’s of Yahweh’s children as a result of them falling away and denying Yeshua through placing their happiness in the delights of sense, which will bring about God’s calamities forecast in the book of Joel Chapter One.
As the Prophet, Joel’s prophecies were described by Commentary from the book of Joel 1: 1-7 God is Lord of hosts, has every creature at his command, and, when he pleases, can humble and mortify a proud, rebellious people, by the weakest and most contemptible creatures. It is just with God to take away the comforts which are abused to luxury and excess. And the more men place their happiness in the gratifications of sense, the more severe temporal afflictions are upon them. The more earthly delights we make needful to satisfy us, the more we expose ourselves to trouble.
However, as Yeshua was ascending our Lord gave the Apostles a severe warning to their question “Lord wilt thou at this time restore the kingdom again to Israel?” And he said unto them “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost has come upon you. And ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
