Dreams And Visions and The Day of the Lord Mentioned In Joel 2

The message of the Day of the Lord, then, is that it’s coming is inevitable. Its harshness, though, is directly related to our disobedience to Yahweh: The greater the disobedience, the greater the destruction; the greater the righteousness, the greater the blessing.
Hopefully, if you know how to rightly divide your Bible, you can see why it is simply not possible to take the Second Coming prophecies of Joel 2 and 3 and try to place them on the Church.

The Major Prophets and You

The authors of the Major prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel) were described or referred to by a number of terms due to the nature of their ministry and calling. They were called prophets, seers, watchmen, men of God, messengers, and servants of the Lord.

First, they functioned as preachers who expounded and interpreted the Mosaic law to the nation.

Second, they functioned as predictors who announced coming judgment, deliverance, and events relating to the Messiah and His kingdom.

Finally, they functioned as watchmen over the people of Israel. Ezekiel stood as a watchman on the walls of Zion ready to trumpet a warning against religious apostasy.
