THEME: PILLAR OF FIRE
“And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.”
-This chapter begins and ends by revealing the events that will happen during the Day of the Lord. As prophesied by Joel, the Holy Spirit has been poured unto all flesh without discrimination of race, color, gender, and to both Jews and Gentiles. Various instances from the Old Testament reveal the impartation of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of the Lord came upon Saul and he prophesied (1 Samuel 10:10). Also, the Spirit of the Lord came upon Samson and he smote the Philistines (Judges 15:14-15). To the seventy elders, the Spirit rested upon them when Moses complained that the burden was too heavy on him, and when he gathered them; they prophesied (Numbers 11:25). Prophecy also came through different prophets who revealed the desires of the Lord most High God. In the New Testament alike, the Holy Spirit indwelled and infilled the people as in the day of Pentecost. When Peter spoke to Cornelius and his household, the Holy Spirit fell upon them and the spoke in different tongues (Acts 10:46). Various people were able to witness Christ and His power through the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit. As the Holy Spirit comes to us, we are also able to witness Christ, dream dreams and see visions, walk in our callings and many come to salvation. According to prophet Joel, blood, fire, pillars of smoke and other events will occur to symbolize the end times. It is therefore important to always be ready because Jesus is coming soon (Revelation 3:11).
