Wake Up and Wail!

Something awful headed for the land of Israel and they had never seen anything like it (Joel 1:1-3). An incredible army of locusts headed for the land of Israel,
What the chewing locust left, the swarming locust has eaten;
What the swarming locust left, the crawling locust has eaten;
And what the crawling locust left, the consuming locust has eaten.
(Joel 1:4)
Yet, Israel had no idea of the destruction headed their way, because they could only think of partying,
Awake, you drunkards, and weep;
And wail, all you drinkers of wine,
Because of the new wine,
For it has been cut off from your mouth.
(Joel 1:5)
The swarms of locusts coming to devour their land represented a foreign army of men who would do to the nation as the locusts had done to the land,
For a nation has come up against My land,
Strong, and without number;
His teeth are the teeth of a lion,
And he has the fangs of a fierce lion.
He has laid waste My vine,
And ruined My fig tree;
He has stripped it bare and thrown it away;
Its branches are made white.
(Joel 1:6, 7)
Keep your eyes open. Be alert spiritually. Know how God works. Know how He thinks. Always be prepared for His coming judgment.
