Joe 3:17 Then you will know that I am the LORD your God, dwelling in Zion, My holy mountain. So Jerusalem will be holy, and strangers will pass through it no more.

Joe 3:18 And in that day the mountains will drip with sweet wine, and the hills will flow with milk, and all the brooks of Judah will flow with water; And a spring will go out from the house of the LORD to water the valley of Shittim (The Valley of Acacias).

The Millennial is not only a restoration of the (Bel) Jews & the fulfillment of God’s promises (covenants), it is the time of great joy and perfection for all Bels who become born again during that 7 year Tribulation.

Joel 3:19 Egypt will become a waste, and Edom will become a desolate wilderness, because of the violence done to the sons of Judah, in whose land they have shed innocent blood.

Joe 3:21 And I will avenge their blood which I have not avenged,
For the LORD dwells in Zion.

Notice it is the Lord who will avenge the Bel. Even after a long period which leads the Bel to think God has forgotten about the attacks and injustice of the past.

The book of Joel related to the Christian walk is that of the Bel who strays from the plan of God and begins the journey toward the cosmic system and away from truth. The warning signs are ignored and reaping what they sow follows.

The rewards and distractions that Satan will offer a negative Bel are often enough to keep that Bel busy with pseudo happiness so that several years can go by before ‘the reaping what you sow’ principle settles into their lives.

1Pet 5:5 You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.

1Pe 5:6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time,

1Pet 5:8 Be of sober spirit (nēphō), be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour (katapinō). 9 But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.

1Pet 5:10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and 

establish you.

Jesus Christ in His humanity faced more adversity, temptation and suffering than any person can fully understand. Bels in the past (O.T. & Apostles) suffered physical and mental attacks beyond anything the average Bel today will face, yet some Bels think they are unique in their sufferings.

1Cor 15:25 For He (Christ) must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet (Millennium). 26 The last enemy that will be abolished is death.

At the final judgement, death no longer has a hold on anyone or anything, eternity begins!

1Co 15:27 For HE HAS PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDER HIS FEET. But when He says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is evident that He is excepted (exception is the God Father) who put all things in subjection to Him.

The two covenants that will fall into place at the 2nd Advent address the Jews and the CA Bels. Christ on the Cross sealed a new and everlasting covenant that does not go fully operational until the 1000 year reign on earth.

Heb 10:16THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD: I WILL PUT MY LAWS UPON THEIR HEART, AND ON THEIR MIND I WILL WRITE THEM,” He then says,

The Mosaic Law has been removed and replaced for the Jewish Bels. In the Millennium new covenant to Israel will function when God fulfills the Abrahamic, Palestinian and Davidic Covenants.

CA Bels are given royal commission as family and priests. This commission is for eternity never to be changed or interrupted. It encompasses God’s grace in time (after salvation) with power options like the filling of the Holy Spirit and knowledge from Bible doctrine.

Heb 10:20 by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh,

Heb 10:20 by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh,

Joel 3:16 The LORD roars from Zion
And utters His voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth tremble. But the LORD is a refuge for His people and a stronghold to the sons of Israel.

Rom 5:10  For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

Col 1:21  And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds,

Rom 8:7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, 8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.  (Believers!)

1Sam 28:16 Samuel said, “Why then do you ask me, since the LORD has departed from you and has become your adversary?

1Sam 28:16 Samuel said, “Why then do you ask me, since the LORD has departed from you and has become your adversary?

Jam 4:4 You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: “He jealously desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us”?

Phil 3:18 For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, 19  whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things.

Gal 4:16 So have I become your enemy by telling you the truth?

Rev 3:19 Those whom I love (phileō), I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent.
