Bible Matters: The Prophet Joel: Should You Fear the “Day of the Lord”?

day of lord 3The Prophet Joel said the Day of the Lord is coming! Is this just some ancient wacko prophet? Or does he have something to tell us? And if the Day of the Lord is coming, what should you do?

Joel says to repent. We usually think of repentance as getting “right with God,” but for the prophets repentance is also about “getting right” with our fellow human beings.

Joel says that we often act like a destructive swarm of locusts, uniting with one another against a common enemy. Joel invites us to repent from that way of life because the Day of the Lord is coming! But is the Day of the Lord something we should fear?
