    11 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.

  • Revelation 9:17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
  • Note the fire issued from their mouths, which means lies poured forth saying their false christ is the true Messiah
  • Do you have ears to hear?
  • Habakkuk 1:8 Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.
    9 They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand.

  • Satan's children are everywhere, they come in groups, they're likeness to locusts.
  • Go back up to verse 2: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

  • 2 Chronicles 28:10 And now ye purpose to keep under the children of Judah and Jerusalem for bondmen and bondwomen unto you: but are there not with you, even with you, sins against the LORD your God?

  • Only confusion arises from not keeping the symbol, distinct from what is symbolized.

  • The sun and the moon shall be dark. Another proof of what is signified;
  • And that this prophecy concerns what is future
  • Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
    30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
    31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
  • This is part and parcel of the signs of the end times. So the Father is telling us when this army of locusts ''our enemy'' comes, it is right before the final hour.
  • Now understand that the Father is in control: Joel 2:25 this is His army, and you should think of it in this way.
  • It is the negative part of His plan. He uses the Kenites to bring His people to their senses, but always remember He has placed a limit on the enemy.

  • The reason for this is that He has a plans for His elect. They will be delivered up before the synagogues to witness against Satan, the impostor and for the Lord, the true Messiah.
  • At this time of the witness, Christ promised to speak through you, Mark 13, therefore you need   not to worry about this. He use His elect as He used Joel to bring the word to His people.
  • Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
    2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

    4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
    5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
  • 6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language
11 And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
  • A solemn assembly = A day of restraint
