.
The book of Joel
 
Bible study the book of Joel = Joel 2:25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, My great army which I sent among you.
 
God's Army The book of Joel tells us more about The fallen angels and the kenites, Satan's seed, sons of Cain and Satan's Church.  "These men are likened to locusts". Locusts come from underground, which tells us they work behind closed doors. They come in groups (from their rapid increase) and try to destroy everything in their path.
 
 They use a gentle appearance shown by the reference to having "hair of women", by their flattery to deceive and a false gentleness. But their teachings and actions will have the same effect as a lion when it attacks.
 
God uses everyday things throughout the Bible as symbols or as examples so that people can understand and relate to. Genesis 3, is example how Satan can deceived you.
 
Revelation 9:1  And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
  • 5th trump or 1st woe, to the people here on earth, warning the people. Michael going cast Satan's angels into the earth, the key to the pit and the opening, the result of the opening, the locusts (fallen angels) coming upon the earth.

  • The word angel here is eagle, the voice of "an eagle flying in mid-heaven"
  •  Eagles are often connected with judgments.
  • The sound of an eagle cries out, the three woes yet to come, warning the people here on earth, Satan and his fallen angels are about to be cast out of heaven by Michael.
  • Satan's angels are upon the earth, the keys and the opening, and the result of the opening of the pit. Woe to the people that do not have the seal of God in their forehead.

  • Pit opened, Michael cast out Satan's angels into the earth
  • We are to be watching and observing, Satan's angels are upon the earth, the keys and the opening, and the result of the opening of the pit. Woe to the people that do not have the seal of God in their forehead.

    3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

    2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
    3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
    4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

  • What happen when you hear Peace?
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
  • Scorpions: A small animal belonging to the same group as the spider and having a poisonous sting at the end of its tail. Scorpions make up an order of arachnids.
  • What is their poison?
  • Deuteronomy 32:33  it's their lies, deceptions poured out on the people.
  • Scorpions has long tail, no stomach, has a venomous sting and so we see a correlation between them and the wicked beast system. but Jesus is telling us something in this.

  • These creatures are to torment men,  We can assume from this that these are not locusts.
  • Where as the literal locust is a torment to vegetation
  • They were given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
  • The scorpion, by the way, has a venomous sting and so we see a correlation between them and the wicked government system.
  • Scorpion refers to how they will suck the life out of you, by their lies.
  • The seal of God in the forehead is simply that your mind is impregnated with the truth of Jesus Christ, or to put it in other words, knowing His full truth and doing His work.
  • It is exactly the opposite of the mark of the beast.. the work of your hands
  • Thus, inasmuch as God told them not to hurt the trees or the men with the seal of God, you know that this is not talking about locusts but is talking about false prophets.
  • And the balance of the chapter bears out this view.
  • If you do not have the seal of God in your forehead, you will be tormented five months.
5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
  • 5 months = 1 hour
  • Them = Satan's angels
  • Satan's angels from Jude 6, Genesis 7Dan 2, 7th kingdom 
  • Notice, Noah was in the Ark before the waters, the rain was restrained 150 days, same as 5 months
    Genesis 7:24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days
  • Noah flood was upon the earth 150 days
  • Revelation 9:5 Satan's flood of lies also 5 months
  • Luke 10:17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
    18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

  • Revelation 9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
  •  I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions
  • 20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
    21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

  • Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
  • Good reading Deuteronomy 1 and Numbers 14
  • The false prophets are not allowed to killed, but to torment
  • It has been their purpose all along to deceive and mislead.
  • Torment is connect with demons, the torments is that they don't know what's going on
  • Satan will loose locusts upon the earth (these locusts being his henchmen or children)
  • Matthew 24 Satan's tribulation shortened.
  • This passage gives us a clue to the length of time
  • Satan was supposed to have three and one half years to reign. Jesus says that has been shortened the time to five months
  • He telling you the season of the year to be on watch for Satan's appearance
  • The season during which the common locusts feeds upon vegetation is generally from May - September, Which is a five month period.
  • He is good to us, it is up to us to study His word
  • End times = As the days of Noah Flood - Genesis 6
  • Five months: Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
  • Many will be seeking death because they will have been mislead into thinking that they are entering eternal life, they will not find it, because Satan isn't the true Christ
  • Only Jesus Christ can give eternal life
  • Men seek death = after the elect are delivered up, these that seek death = now know they have worshipped Satan
  • 6th seal = Revelation 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
  • Note it said, faces of men = locusts were likened unto horses prepared unto battle. Study the book of Joel.
  • Horses = symbolize strength

  • Satan's angels =  Joel 1 and Jude 6. There's four stages of the locusts

  • So we see the power of these false teachers as they influence the Christian world saying that Christ has returned!
  • Shaped refers to likened to
  • Satan is counterfeiting the real Christ
    These men are false pastors, they are likened to locusts
    2 Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
    14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
    15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
  • Joel 2:25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

  • Nahum 3:17 Thy crowned are as the locusts, and thy captains as the great grasshoppers, which camp in the hedges in the cold day, but when the sun ariseth they flee away, and their place is not known where they are.
  • Study the book of Joel
8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
  • They were men with a gentle appearance shown by the reference to having "hair of women"
  • Flattery to deceive and a false gentleness.
  • Teeth -  Two or two rows of teeth, mighty ones, fallen angels, means confusion = their power is their lies
  • They are going to tell you anything, if you worship Satan, pay all your bills
  • Those that teach the ways of the world, will be helping Satan bring in One World order
  • The mark in your forehead, you believe Satan and his angels are of God, and you have  followed Satan's ways.
  • Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
  • 2 Corinthians 11:3  But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent (Satan) beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
  • 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
  • Revelation 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
  • They claim to be pastors, a man of God, but they are false prophets, Rev 13:1
  • The breastplate is false too
  • Israel's breastplate is made up as jewels
