not, O land;
We all have the cross as proof of His love for us and His desire toward us. As mothers and fathers, we love our children and want to spare them from pain and from torment of any kind. So does God.
And there is another reason that Joel 2:21 tells us not to fear. In fact, the remaining part of the verse tells us to Be glad and rejoice.In that instruction alone, we should obey. We can use our will to turn away from fear, and turn toward the cross and our many blessings with thanksgiving, and trust God with whatever is going on in our lives.
But Joel 2:21 gives us a specific reason why we should turn away from fear and instead be glad and rejoice. That reason is because the Lord has done marvelous things!
Note that it ends with an exclamation point and not just a period. This is an exciting statement and an exciting time.
The Lord has done marvelous things!
We don’t always see or recognize the Lord’s work on the surface because He moves behind the scenes in the spiritual realm. However, maybe those marvelous things He is doing in your life will be revealed when you read these Hebrew meanings:
to twist, that is, to be large (in various senses, as in body, mind, estate or honor, also in pride): - advance, boast, bring up, exceed, excellent, be great, grow (up), increase, lift up, magnify, be much set by, nourish (up), pass, promote, proudly [spoken], tower.
Let’s be glad and rejoice, for He is lifting up the people of His land, particularly His men, or husbands. He is twisting things in place—arranging people and families according to His Kingdom order.
Psalm 72:7 says, “In His days the righteous shall flourish…” As Christ prepares for His return, He is revealed in these last days through the rise of His people, particularly His men, the head of the home, whom He calls Priests. (Hebrews 5:6)
As we fall into place, the economic condition of His estate is restored, increased and nourished. His estate is our estate; our house. We are Beulah—our land is married to Him.
Let me say it a different way. As we come into His ordained order within the family and the church, He rises up as our Husband, Who manages the economic condition of His house, of which we are a part.
You shall no more be termed Forsaken,
and your land shall no more be termed Desolate,
but you shall be called My Delight Is in Her,
and your land Married;
for the Lord delights in you,
and your land shall be married.
Hallelujah! We have been eagerly waiting, Lord. Come and save us. Come quickly and save Your bride!
We are glad and we rejoice, for You are doing marvelous things!Study the Bible verse of Joel 2:21, recognize what He is doing in your life and rejoice!
