It appears to me, that this past Yom Teruah of September 18-20th (because it has always been two days) and these Days of Awe that we are in right now (the Days of Awe are the 10 days that fall between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur) are at least in part fulfilling the Biblical book of Joel. Incredibly as the Church calls out to God desperately in repentance and as many are coming to salvation and as worship protests are held across America from Los Angeles to Portland to Seattle to Chicago and New York, as persecution intensifies, and repentance events across the nation are held such as Jonathan Cahn’s The Return, Franklin Graham’s Prayer March, Pastor Jack Hibb’s week of prayer and fasting, and Pastor Dana Coverstone’s call to daily prayer, Joel 1-2 and the essence of Yom Teruah is indeed coming to pass!
Yes, Joel 1-2 is coming to pass as well. For one, Joel 2:28-32 began to come to pass in Acts 2. And now Joel 1 and 2:1-2; 12-17 and 28-32 as well. Let’s look at it briefly together.
Joel 1 also speaks of a horrendous plague of locusts, drought, fires, invasion, and great devastation. The locusts are described as those that eat everything, and indeed, such a plague has descended upon Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, the likes of which has never been seen before now. This year they bred rapidly and traveled swiftly across long distances causing extreme devastation. The situation is described as “dire”, and it is warned that upwards to 300,000 may die because of this overwhelming consumption of crops. Here in America the wine crops of California’s Bay area may be devastated as well because of the fires, and other crops throughout California will also be affected. Acres and acres and miles and miles of Midwest crops have been wiped out by the derecho, an inland hurricane; flooding has drowned the produce of the South, powerful hurricanes continue to ravage the South and Southeast and strange dust plumes miles wide crossed the Atlantic to settle on American soil. And unbeknownst to many Americans, the military of other nations are present here in America already, ready to take charge when all-out chaos breaks loose very soon. And the Church has been affected monetarily, for tithing initially was down, and in the coming economic crisis ahead, everyone will hurt. And joy is waning, though many try to return to normal. For returning to normal is only a mirage that will never be reached. And though there are some unemployed now, most Americans are not hurting financially or feeling deprived in their food supplies yet, but with the locust plagues and food crises around the world, as well as the flooding, hurricanes, fires, inland hurricanes and early snows of 2020, as well as the deliberate destruction of food, the United States will be affected sooner than we know.
We are seeing the book of Joel unfold right in front of us. I know that some Christians thought that Jesus would return on Yom Teruah because of the trumpets that sound on that day, but the Biblical passages regarding Yom Teruah do not even mention trumpets, but rather, shouting and remembrance. And Christians are remembering. And we are shouting out war cries in the heavenlies as we pray. We are slicing and dicing the enemy with the Word of the living God! We are realizing that our nation of America is sinking like the Titanic. We are seeing how far we have fallen, and we have fallen far. But, God! God is greater, and God’s will is being done. And Christians are awakening to the Teruah blast–the sound of alarm– and are via repentance and prayer keeping Yom Teruah –God’s holiday– even if they do not know it. We are seeing its fulfillment! Fully or in part? God knows! I believe it will be fully fulfilled when the Jews realize that they are in real trouble–Jacob’s Trouble to be exact–when the Church has been raptured and all hell is breaking loose.
Pastor Jessip told CBN News, “We’re in a real Nineveh moment. It’s a critical situation in the nation. And much like Jonah went into Nineveh and said, ‘You have 40 days and then it’s all over’ – listen, we are at that juncture right now in America. We have 40 days and all we know could be over. And so we need God to hear the cries of the righteous remnant.” [The Return is] not intended as some spectator event, and Jessip added, “This is not a presentation, a concert or a glorified prayer meeting. This is a sacred, solemn assembly – as per Joel 2 – where we come, the Church comes, and we bow before a holy God in reverent fear.” http://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/2020/september/the-return-and-prayer-march-arrive-time-rsquo-s-come-for-the-church-in-a-wicked-world-to-repent-and-return-it-to-god
And truly as Yom Kippur draws nearer, more and more are repenting and seeking God’s face, and He is hearing and answering. I pray that you will link up online with The Return to participate via Live Stream. There are “nearly 30,000 churches across America that are simulcasting this event,” Jessip stated. “This will be, I’m being told, the largest ever in Christendom broadcast simulcast.” To watch and participate Live beginning at 6pm-9pm Eastern time on Friday and 9am-9pm Eastern on Saturday, use this link https://thereturn.org/ or any CBN website, youtube, or on facebook.
Also, please participate with the Prayer March of Franklin Graham that will be aired on FOX news, Saturday September 26th at Noon.
Let’s not forget there is a restraining power in a solemn assembly (“The Restraining Power of a Solemn Assembly,” https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2020/07/24/the-restraining-power-of-a-solemn-assembly/). For God silences the enemy and the avenger and establishes/ordains strength through the foolish things of this world, such as babes and sucklings….and Christians who pray and praise! (“Psalm 8: Childlike Faith Silencing Evil,” https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2020/08/12/psalm-8-childlike-faith-silencing-evil/).
If you are reading this after Saturday, please, still take this to heart and repent and seek the face of God while there is still time. For indeed, “who knows if He will turn and relent and leave a blessing behind Him…” Joel 2:14.
This is not about elections nor can it be fixed by elections. This is about repentance. This is about God’s people waking up. This is about warfare prayer. This is about that extra oil spoken of in Matthew 25. This is a call to holiness, without which we will not see the Lord (Hebrews 11). This is our last call, our final warning of the final game. The two minute warning has passed…..we’ve entered sudden death. This is it. Let’s not treat this lightly. Let’s play or shall I say “pray” for all we’re worth. The time is now.
