At this festival an offering of the first fruits of the harvest was made.
 
Matthew 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
 
Acts 2:16 This is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel.
 
The book of Joel has to do with the end times,  just before the millennium, which is the Lord's day.
 
No one will be able to make war with the political one world system physically, or otherwise.

When you have one Worldism you have total disarmament and there is no way to make war.
 
Daniel 2:31 Satan's image brings One Worldism, falsehood, deception, confusion, you're going to see one of the biggest false revival on earth that every happen, Satan going to pay all your bills, he's going to give you anything if you worship him.
 
Joel 2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
  • What is the sound of a trumpet?
  • It's a warning, the enemy is coming.
  • Sound the Alarm, teach God's word
  • What day? The day of the Lord.
  • One day with the Lord is as 1000 years, which is the millennium
  • Holy mountain = Mountain of My Sanctuary
  • Bring the meat = The word of God = God's plan of the last days.
  • Milk = The word of God,  teach first salvation then teach the meat which is knowing God's plan of the last days.
  • Where is the nation Zion today?
  • It's where His people have migrated all over the world and gathered together.
  • It's true that this day is nigh even now.
2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: 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.
  • This never has happen and this will never happen again
  • 4th trumpet = 1/3 of the Christians are spiritually dead to GOD'S WORD.

  • 2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

  • Darkness means opposite of the truth = deception and confusing
  • If you're in the light which is the word of God you know the seasons and the signs
  • 1 King 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
  • 1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
  • Revelation 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
  • Revelation 9: The Appearance of Satan and his locusts army, this Is the clouds of deceptions.
  • God letting you know these locusts swarm in huge groups and they are strong.
  • This is a cloud of deception
  • Satan doesn't have any trouble finding people to follow him
  • A day = The End Times
  • Amos 5:18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.
    19 As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.
    20 Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?
  • Morning = blackness or darkness
  • Down or morning
  • Joel 1:4: A great people = This refers to the people symbolized by the locusts, or the Kenites.
3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
  • If there is one Worldism, who can stand against this system?
  • Nothing shall escape them, Only God's Very Elect
  • You have to know God's word, if you do not know God's word you will be deceived.
  • Mark 13:22 For false Christ's and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
  • Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
  • The army of deceptions will take over the world, Satan and his army, will bring in one Worldism.
  • Who is the prince of the world?
  • Satan
  • How does a group of locusts attack a tree?
  • They are loud, they leave nothing on a tree but bare
  • What is the opposite of wars?  Peace
  • Satan comes in peaceful, promising you anything if you worship him.
  • Satan's deception, he will pay all your bills, If you worship him
  • Satan's fallen angel are the false pastors, the 4th stage comes in peaceful as pastors
  • Once Satan get's you through deception, you have nothing.
  • Can you see how he deceived the world?
  • He will give you anything to worship him.
  • We are going through the hardship now
  • Who are these people?
  • Kenites are Satan's children they are likened to locusts
  • Let's visualize the operation of these locusts. The world is as a garden of Eden, everything green and perfect. But when the locust army roll over it, there's nothing left but waste and want.
  • The Garden of Eden refers to Genesis 13
  • Genesis 13:10 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.
    11 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.
    12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.
    13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.
  • Ezekiel 36:35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.
    36 Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.
  • A great people symbolized by the locusts, the Kenites
  • Desolate wilderness
  • Psalms 107:34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
    35 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into water springs.
4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
  • We are seeing a clear picture of their action against the Christian nations.
  • We can see here they are not locusts: The appearance of them are as war horse.
  • Revelation 9:8 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.
  • But their teachings and actions will have the same effect as a lion when it attacks
  • Their teeth as of lion, they rip and tear you to pieces
  • They don't care about people. If you are in their path, they have teeth of a lions. They  will tear you to pieces.
  • Revelation 9:9 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.
  • The breastplate is false too.
  • Israel's breastplate is made up as jewels.
  • We see yet another counterfeit.
  • You can hear their sounds all around the world: Peace, Peace, Peace
  • Their sounds are like locusts in flight give out a great sound, these supernatural creatures will appeal by the sound of their wings.
  • 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.
5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
  • Time to teach - Sound the Alarm
  • Like the noise as war horses - verse 4
  • Revelation 9:7 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.
  • 8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
    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.
  • 10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
  • 11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
  • Abaddon = Destruction
  • Who is the angel of the bottom pit?
  • Satan
  • Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
    13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
    14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
    15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
  • This connect  with the end times
  • On the tops = the Hebrew accents connect this with leaping, not with chariots
  • Leap = rattle along
  • As a strong people = not locust = They are the Kenites, sons of Satan
  • The symbol must not be confused with what is symbolized
6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
  • This army of deceptions will takes over
  • Blackness = paleness
  • Why?
  • People don't know what's going on, they believe Satan is God, they gather with them.
7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
  • They shall run like mighty Men = Hebrew = enosh
  • 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.
  • When does this happen?
  • Just before, the day of the Lord
8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
  • They shall not be wounded = Be wounded = they can not be stop
  • Why?
  • These are Satan angels, they are supernatural men, Satan brings in One Worldism, who can stand against them, but the elect.
  • Walk = march = as in verse 7
  • Sword = Hebrew 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
  • The sword, the word of God
  • Because not used earlier than = refer to
  • Nehemiah 4:10 And Judah said, The strength of the bearers of burdens is decayed, and there is much rubbish; so that we are not able to build the wall.
  • 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?
  • This whole scene belongs to The Day of The Lord
  • Only confusion arises from not keeping the symbol, distinct from what is symbolized.
9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
  • You can see these are men and not locusts
  • God's uses nature to let us see how they come
  • What you are seeing here is, Mark 13, Matthew 24 come to pass.
  • Run = in the city = climb = enter
  • These are put for the acts of men
  • Like a thief, A thief is a man (not an insect); so are these
  • How does a theft come in?
  • You do not know until the theft comes in, meaning it's only going to happen to the people that don't study God's word.
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
  • 4th trumpet = 1/3 of the Christians are spiritually dead to GOD'S WORD.
  • 4th trumpet = It's to make a choice,  choose to follow God or Satan
  • 2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
  • Darkness means oppose of the truth = deception and confusing
  • 1 King 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
  • 1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
  • Revelation 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
  • 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.
  • He told them: touch not Mine Elect:
  • Revelation 9:4  it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
  • 1 Chronicles 16:22 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
  • 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 (from all races) 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.
    3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
    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?
  • Who's Army?
  • 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.

  • Daniel 3:19 Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated
  • Daniel 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.
  • Great refers to: Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
    8 For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:
  • Acts 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
    21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
  • Who can abide it?
  • Numbers 24:22 Nevertheless the Kenites shall be wasted, until Asshur shall carry thee away captive.
    23 And he took up his parable, and said, Alas, who shall live when God doeth this!
  • Malachi 3:2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:
    3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifer of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

Revelation 9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

Revelation 12:4 And his (satan) tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

  • And his = refers to Satan's first rebellion and to those who followed him.
  • 1/3 of men are those that followed Satan's ways and do wicked
  • Was delivered is about to bring forth
  • For = in order

  • Stars = sons of God =  (Job 38:7
2 Thessalonians 2:3 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;

  • That day = The interpretation here is of the day of Babylon's overthrow.
  • The application is of the yet future Great Tribulation of Matthew 24.
  • This is in contrast with the day of Restoration.
  • Great = too great to have another like it.
  • Jacob's = Not Israel's, for it is the natural seed that is here in question, not the spiritual.
8 For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:

The elect (from all races) are those who took a firm stand against Satan in the first world age that was. In the last days there will be 7,000 out of that remnant that the Father chose as His elect to stand against Satan again.


They will prove their right of being God's elect by standing against Satan again, being delivered up and being a witness for Christ's sake.

21 Go up against the land of Merathaim, even against it, and against the inhabitants of Pekod: waste and utterly destroy after them, saith the Lord, and do according to all that I have commanded thee.

23 How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!

24 I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the Lord.

25 The Lord hath opened his armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation: for this is the work of the Lord God of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans.

26 Come against her from the utmost border, open her storehouses: cast her up as heaps, and destroy her utterly: let nothing of her be left.

27 Slay all her bullocks; let them go down to the slaughter: woe unto them! for their day is come, the time of their visitation.

28 The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of the Lord our God, the vengeance of his temple.

29 Call together the archers against Babylon: all ye that bend the bow, camp against it round about; let none thereof escape: recompense her according to her work; according to all that she hath done, do unto her: for she hath been proud against the Lord, against the Holy One of Israel.

30 Therefore shall her young men fall in the streets, and all her men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the Lord.

31 Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, saith the Lord God of hosts: for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee.

32 And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.

33 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed together: and all that took them captives held them fast; they refused to let them go.

34 Their Redeemer is strong; the Lord of hosts is his name: he shall throughly plead their cause, that he may give rest to the land, and disquiet the inhabitants of Babylon.

35 A sword is upon the Chaldeans, saith the Lord, and upon the inhabitants of Babylon, and upon her princes, and upon her wise men.

36 A sword is upon the liars; and they shall dote: a sword is upon her mighty men; and they shall be dismayed.

37 A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed.
 
Jeremiah 51:1 Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I will raise up against Babylon, and against them that dwell in the midst of them that rise up against me, a destroying wind;

2 And will send unto Babylon fanners, that shall fan her, and shall empty her land: for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about.

3 Against him that bendeth let the archer bend his bow, and against him that lifteth himself up in his brigandine: and spare ye not her young men; destroy ye utterly all her host.

4 Thus the slain shall fall in the land of the Chaldeans, and they that are thrust through in her streets.

5 For Israel hath not been forsaken, nor Judah of his God, of the Lord of hosts; though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel.

6 Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the Lord's vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence.
 
Exactly 2520 years from the exile of Benjamin, Iceland became an independent nation.
 
  The first tribe to be conquered by the Assyrians was Manasseh, in 745 B.C. Exactly 2520 years later America became a nation on July 4, 1776.

(Leviticus. 26: 28-46) God warned Israel that if they persisted in continually breaking His Laws, not only would curses come upon them.

He would punish them for seven times, (a time being 360 years, seven times would be 2520 years) and would banish them from the land of Palestine and scatter them among the heathens (like lost sheep)
