One Book: Joel

Joel: The Great & Terrible Day of the Lord

In the first section of the book of Joel (1:1-2:11), the prophet describes God fighting against His people as a result of their rebellion and disobedience. In the immediate context, locusts and a great army are positioned to attack God’s people and cause great devastation. It seems like God is fighting against His people, but as Pastor Nate McLaurin will help us see, He fights against them (and us!) for their good.
