While there is suffering, evil, sickness, and death in this world, the book of Joel reminds us that we have an everlasting hope through it all. Joel warns the people of Judah as a horrifying locust plague has come upon them. He urges the people to repent and return to God, predicting that this is just the beginning of their judgment. Thankfully Joel's prophecies do not end there. He continues to teach the people about the promise of hope that lies ahead in the kingdom of the messiah. Listen as this prophet describes the day of salvation, which we are privileged to live in now.
