Final Judgment - Joel 3:14-16 Flow of Joel Acts of nature, acts of God For a nation has come up against my land, powerful and without number; its teeth are lions teeth, and it has the fangs of a lioness. It has laid waste my vines, and splintered my fig trees; it has stripped off their bark and thrown it down; their branches are made white. (Joel 1:6,7 RSV) Judgment on a nation Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming, it is near, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness! Like blackness there is spread upon the mountains a great and powerful people; their like has never been from of old, nor will e again after them through the years of all generations. (Joel 2:1,2
