Joel 2:11

his army

To verse 10 (Joe 2:10) inclusive the invading army is described; at verse 11 (Joe 2:11) Jehovah's army. This "army" is described, (Rev 19:11-18). The call to repentance is based upon the Lord's promise of deliverance, (Joe 2:12-17). At verses (Joe 2:18-20), we have the deliverance (Joe 2:20); see "Armageddon,"

(See Scofield) - (Rev 16:14),

and kingdom blessing in verses (Joe 2:21-27). Verses 28-32 (Joe 2:28-32) give the outpouring of the Spirit, and verses 29-32 (Joe 2:29-32), the cosmical signs preceding the day of the Lord.

(See Scofield) - (Act 2:17).

for phrase, "the last days."
