The LORD Will Work Wonders

The LORD said:
28Later, I will give my Spirit to everyone.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy.
Your old men will have dreams,
and your young men will see visions.
29In those days I will even give my Spirit to my servants,
both men and women.

30I will work wonders in the sky above
and on the earth below.
There will be blood and fire and clouds of smoke.
31The sun will turn dark, and the moon will be as red as blood
before that great and terrible day when I appear.
32Then the LORD will save everyone who faithfully worships him. He has promised there will be survivors on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and among them will be his chosen ones.

The LORD Will Judge the Nations

Joel 3 At that time I, the LORD, will make Judah and Jerusalem prosperous again. 2Then in Judgment Valley I will bring together the nations that scattered my people Israel everywhere in the world, and I will bring charges against those nations. They divided up my land 3and gambled to see who would get my people; they sold boys and girls to pay for prostitutes and wine.
4You people of Tyre and Sidon and you Philistines, why are you doing this? Are you trying to get even with me? I'll strike back before you know what's happened. 5You've taken my prized possessions, including my silver and gold, and carried them off to your temples. 6You have dragged the people of Judah and Jerusalem from their land and sold them to the Greeks.
7But I'll make the people of Judah determined to come home, and what happened to them will happen to you. 8I'll hand over your sons and daughters to the people of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans, who live far away. I, the LORD, have spoken!
