These verse have been stirring in my heart for about six months. At first I thought they were just for me, then for my family, now, I am thinking it is bigger than all that. I really believe the Lord is stirring His people. I believe He is calling out His remnant. I believe He might be beginning to separate the wheat from the tares.
Now, I do not claim to be an expert on ‘end times’, in reality, far from it, trust me on this one , but something is going on. I am getting so excited with what He is doing in our family and in His people. It is an anticipation, really. I’ll share these few verses, but if you have a chance, read the whole book of Joel, it is only three chapters.
And the Lord utters His voice before His army, for His host is very great, and [they are] strong and powerful who execute [God's] word. For the day of the Lord is great and very terrible, and who can endure it?
Therefore also now, says the Lord, turn and keep on coming to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning [until every hindrance is removed and the broken fellowship is restored].
Rend your hearts and not your garments and return to the Lord, your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in loving-kindness; and He revokes His sentence of evil [when His conditions are met]. (Joel 2:11-13)
Really, keep reading if you can, it is so awesome! Sorry about putting the Amplified version, couldn’t help myself.
