Joel's Repentance Revolution
Gen. Deborah Green
P RAISE GOD. Welcome to Battle Cry Sounding/ Battle Cry Pounding. Yes, the Lord is on the move. The demons are on the move, evil men and wicked agendas are on the move, but never ever forget that the Lord is on the move! And any and all who will pay heed to the Lord will move with the Lord, will be kept by the Lord, will be directed by the Lord, and instructed by the Lord. And we can be thankful for that.
But, in these days of murder, bloodshed, heartache, sorrow, devastation, despair, depression, suicide, and all these other down factors, war—senseless, endless war, we can give thanks to God that we can be moved by God, and we can move with God. Because, if we keep our vision single, that is, upon the Living God, then we will not be overwhelmed by the darkness that is evidencing itself in these times. But, we will be brought forth in the newness of life that He alone can provide.
Now, today we're going to be reading out of Joel chapter 2, and I'm reading out of the Amplified version, and the name of this message is "JOEL'S REPENTANCE REVOLUTION." Now, we see that this call to repentance is something that God gave forth time, and time, and time again throughout the history of His own people.
That is, He called for His people to repent, and to make that such an active repentance that they would literally revolt against their own backslidings, against the worldliness, against the ungodliness, and against the heathen pagan ways that had crept in, and taken them captive, and seduced them away from the Lord. And, they also repented, or, they were meant to repent of, the things that they had done to bring anguish and anger to the Lord.
ANGUISH AND ANGER! Say: "Well, I'm a member of AA." Yeah, you probably are—bringing anguish and anger to the Lord. And the Lord is angry with His people in this wicked generation, just as He's angry with the evil-doers, the wicked, and the sinners that do not serve God. But, God is even more angry with the hypocrites who make a façade that they are serving Him while they are serving their own lusts, their own greed, their own ambition, and their own evil desires.
Now, God doesn't like fakes/pretenders. What was one of Jesus' major indictments when He came declaring the Kingdom of God, when He came calling ALL MEN to repent? One of His major indictments was against the hypocrites, the pretenders, the mockers, and the scoffers who were the RELIGIOUS JEWS, because He found them very guilty—because His Father found them guilty:
* guilty of pretension,
* guilty of hypocrisy,
* guilty of scoffing the true prophets,
* mocking the true living Word, and
* literally hating the Son of God.
So, you see that God has every right to do whatever He must do to display to HIS OWN PEOPLE, FIRST OF ALL, THAT THEY ARE FOUND LACKING, THAT THEY ARE FOUND GUILTY BEFORE HIM.
Now, in Joel's Repentance Revolution, we are going to read through this chapter. This is part 1, and we are going to find out many things—we are going to find out that oftentimes, because God's people bring to God so much anguish through their terrible ways, that God ventilates His anger upon them.
And God many times will do this through invasion, through INVASION. That is, bringing in evil forces, wicked men, and armies to completely denigrate and beat down the so-called people of God.
So, if you want to look at that realistically, the church, which is meant to represent Jesus Christ in some sort of form, has allowed itself to be so far demoralized and degraded by loving the world—by having a love affair with the world, by fornicating with the world, and bringing forth bastard seed, that now God, because of the anguish that He has suffered through that, is bringing His anger.
And the displays of His anger are such novelties as the wild, sensual, uncontrollable music that every church has to have, or nobody will come, and the big mega-church building programs where all the principles of Christian religion are abandoned in order to take up worldly gain, and to take up promotion of recreation, promotion of fun and party stuff, and all the attributes of a worldly mall, and call it all the "house of God." These things anguish God—they make God sick, they make Him angry, and they make Him sorely displeased.
Now, another factor where you can see the power of invasion is in the whole homo-genization of the entire so-called body of Christ—the false body of Christ has succumb completely to the onslaught of the homosexual movement. It has completely collapsed to it: it's like a shaking, quaking, trembling old man—as we've seen physically demonstrated here recently...and how weak that is to withstand such an invasion as God has allowed to come into the church—because they have displeased Him.
It's not just in the nation, it's in the church which is supposed to be the salt and the light, but it's really nothing except a parody, a pretension, and a hypocrisy. And then we also see the whole merging that many pastors—Christian pastors, are trying to present of Christianity and Islam.
So, we see that the church has not resisted the devil, it has not resisted the enemies, it has not fought against those forces, but its opened its arms up and says: "Come on in, because this is where love is, and we will love you no matter what you do, no matter how evil you are, because we're evil too."
In other words, they've chosen the way that is going to bring, and is already bringing, the anger of God, not only upon the church, but upon the land. Now the land languishes, and the land mourns under the calamities, the disasters that God sends forth. And all of that, if you open up your eyes and look at it, is DIVINE PUNISHMENT—divine punishment for whoredom, divine punishment for idolatry, and divine punishment for every imaginable sin because men have chosen the way of the flesh, rather than the way of the Spirit.
Now, it's not a new thing: you go through the Old Testament and you will find repeated instances of the same types of sin creeping in, taking over, and God's people completely HATING GOD, and turning and fully embracing the ways of the pagan. And they prefer to keep company with wretched, sinful, evil persons, rather than those who walk in righteousness; we see it everywhere.We see it plainly evidenced, we see that it is darkness, iniquity, and evil, and yet you see everybody wants to deny these things are going on.
Ok, so as we get here in Joel chapter 2, let me read just a few little things out of chapter one so we get a little background. And it says: "THE WORD of the Lord that came to Joel the son of Pethuel. Hear this, you aged men, and give ear, all you inhabitants of the land! Has such a thing as this occurred in your days or even in the days of your fathers?... Awake, you drunkards, and weep; wail, all you drinkers of wine…" in other words, He's calling them out for what they are, He's telling them: "You're just drunkards, you're not alert, you're not sober, you're not aware, and I'm going to take away your source, I'm going to take away your wine, and then you're going to weep because I'm going to take away your idolatry, or your idol."
And then it says: "For a [heathen and hostile] nation [of locusts, illustrative of a human foe] has invaded My land, mighty and without number; its teeth are the teeth of a lion, and it has the jaw teeth of a lioness" (Joel 1:6). Now, that could easily describe the ISLAMIC INVASION that's already here, that's already in America, that's already making many communities bow to the Islamic influence, because they are a "religion of peace," while in their mosques, they are teaching outright murder and terrorization of any and all who do not bend the knee to the Islamic religion, to the Islamic invasion, to the Islamic murder plot.
What does it say? "For a [heathen and hostile] nation [of locusts, illustrative of a human foe] has invaded My land, mighty and without number…" Did you know there's more Muslims in America than any census bureau knows about? Did you know that there are terrorists who have come into America through all kinds of disguises, and they are living right now in this land, and they are going weekly to their training sessions in the mosques that are 501c3's—religious organizations approved by the federal government—they are going there and being TRAINED IN TERRORISM, and taught hate-rhetoric every single week.
And communities are bowing to this invasion. And in some places where there is a large Islamic population, they are demanding that Arabic be taught in the schools—the language of Arabic, they are demanding that they have on the workplace all rights to pray, I believe five times a day, and the employers are bowing to that, and they can go spend 15 minutes, half an hour, or whatever, to do their little Allah prayers, and they get paid for that.
They are demanding that they serve Muslim food in the school cafeterias so everyone has to eat Muslim food. And they are demanding that they be governed not by the laws of the land, but by the laws of Sharia law, and community after community, city after city is bowing to this invasion in America.
"I thought you were going to preach on Joel's repentance." Hey, we're building it up to see the similarity between the days when Joel was declaring what God told him to speak forth, and the days that we are living in right now. The invading force, dear ones, is here. It's here. AND YES, IT IS QUEER, BUT IT'S ALSO ISLAMIC.
So, what do we have? We have a two-forked invasion. We have a two-forked invasion: we have the homosexuals literally working for the Islamic movement, because you do away completely with all red-blooded American males, and you feminize the male image to such a degree that the guy is wanting to bear the child, and stay at home, and change the diapers, and heat up the bottles, and just do everything he possibly can to be a woman. And the women are shaving their heads, dyking it out, and so it's confusion.
And why are they doing that? They're doing that so that males in this dear land will no longer be able to defend the homeland, because they'll be squeamish at the thought of actually protecting their families, protecting their beliefs, protecting their homes against invasion, so they work together.
Then all you have to get is a bunch of rowdy, threatening, blood-thirsty Islamic terrorists coming in, ready to hack off head, and men and women will be running, and trembling, and squealing in fear. Why? Because the homosexual movement has prepared men to be as frightened as women.
Now, really, the truth of it is that the male entity is meant to be the protector, because the woman's job, believe it or not career ladies and Jezebels and dikes, that the woman's job, is to conceive and bring forth children and rear those children. So mom is basically, in a traditional society, mom is basically burdened down with the care, with the protection, of these little children, and the overall protector's role is meant for the male. So, when you feminize the males, then they can't protect their own. So, it's all a part of a major plot, it's all a part of a major scheme.
But, it is an oppression that is deserved because of hatred for, and backsliding, and idolatry, against God.
So, we see that all these forces of evil are working together to literally destroy. So, the invasion is huge. It's not just one little incident somewhere where some little college student came in and got by customs with a suitcase bomb.
But, try to get by customs with your Bible…and they'll take it out and smell it. They will. And they'll give it to the dogs to sniff. They did that to my husband. My husband one time, this was after they instituted ‘Homeland Security’—for our protection.
We were going overseas, I believe it was to India, and they grabbed my husband's Bible, and they took it like he had a thousand pounds of drugs. Taking drugs out of America to smuggle to India? Come on! But they took his Bible, and took it in back, and put lights all over it, and sniffed it all over, and then they came back and told him it stunk like ‘gun powder.’ Why? Because he's on fire for God.
But the point I'm getting to is that you can get by customs with a suitcase bomb, but they'll grab your Bible and make a show over it so maybe they can rob your wallet while they're doing it; which they also did to him. They put on the show about the Bible, and in the meantime, they extracted the money he had in his wallet, and got him so preoccupied with the Bible that he didn't check his wallet when they gave it back.
"Oh, but these guys are from Homeland Security." No they're not, they're just a bunch of thugs, punks, and old grumps that are stealing from you while they're supposed to be protecting you. Now, I have to ask you, why would be smuggling drugs to India, why would we be going on a plane that is taking us far from our homeland, and planning to abduct the plane and do some terrorism? Who are we going to terrorize? See how stupid it all is?
But, all of it is a part of the homo-genization of America. Everything is just being BLENDED TOGETHER at high speed, and high heat. And it's killing all the factors of godliness, it's killing all the factors of true masculinity, it's killing all the factors that could make us capable of defending ourselves.
So, what does it all come to? It comes to we, as a nation, and as a people, are going to be made, by God, desperately, desperately, desperately needy of God, and of God's intervention.
I'm not going to go any more through chapter 1, if you want to read all this, you can. In verse 15 it says: "Alas for the day! For the day of [the judgment of] the Lord is at hand, and as a destructive tempest from the Almighty will it come."
Now, let's go to chapter 2. It says: "BLOW THE trumpet in Zion…" Now, I want you to notice that it doesn't say: 'blow the trumpet in Zion and have a good ol rock festival’ or ‘a rap crap trap,’ or, ‘a big music-fest where we can invite all the diversity, and just cause them to be one in Jesus. Oops, sorry, we can just cause them to be one in Allah. Oops, sorry, it doesn't matter who you are, come as you are, stay as you are because we accept diversity!’ NO!
It says: "BLOW THE trumpet in Zion…" because you're supposed to: "sound an alarm… sound an alarm." People say: "I don't want to hear an alarm, I don't ever want to get up, leave me alone, I'm sleeping, I'm snoring, and loving it so. Don't shake me, don't wake me, don't sound an alarm at me!"
That's where the majority of American people are living. When you tell them: "Hey, this is the issue that is grieving God!," they say: "Oh, come on, I don't want to hear that, don't tell me any of that!" Why? THEY DON'T WANT TO HEAR THE ALARM.
But He's saying: "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion." In other words, "Make a noise about it, sound an alarm…" in where? "In my holy mountain, Zion. on My holy Mount [Zion]. Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of [the judgment of] the Lord is coming; it is close at hand…"
You know, you have to laugh when you hear people say: "Oh, the Lord is coming soon!," and they think that means that they're going to put on their angel wings, and they're going to get to fly away. They're going to get to just fly away, they're going to be like “beautiful swans with pot-bellies, flying up, belly hanging down, going up, get a little more air in my wings, belly hanging down. Strap that sucker up and get going…rapture, we've got to go, day of the Lord's here." That's not what the Day of the Lord is at all.
And people say: "Oh, He's coming soon." Yeah, He's going to come and find you lacking, He's going to find you hypocritical, He's going to find you pretending, He's going to find you damned in your own sins. THE
DAY OF THE LORD IS THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH REVEALED.
You read some of these old prophets, and you're going to find out that the day of the Lord was not anything to wait expectantly for, and to hope for, because it meant you were going to get it too.
And I hear this all the time, people say: "Oh, we are in the end days, He's coming soon!" And I think: "Yeah, you are in the end of your days, and He is coming soon, to take you to the damnation reward that you're going to receive, because of your backsliding, because of your spiritual laziness, because of your murderous intent, because of your pride, and contempt, and rebellion, against the true rulership of God.”
You know, GOD WANTS TO RULE OVER US, and He wants us to be submitted to that rule, and thankful for that rule…but we resist it. Why? Because we want our own way. Every time Israel did that to God, God punished them; it was inevitable.
So, here Joel is being told by God: "Blow the trumpet, sound an alarm!" Because why? He says: "the Lord is coming! The Lord is coming for all of you that are awaiting His coming, the Lord is coming...it is close at hand." "Oh man, I'd better sell my stocks because I'm going to be raptured!" Who was that old guy that died not too long ago? Harold Camping; he had everybody with these big RV's painted about: "The Lord's coming! The rapture's here! This, and this, and this."
Finally, the old croak died, but before he died, he had to confess he was deluded, and that he'd been led astray by pride. And thousands of people put their whole inheritance/fortune into his proclamation that the Lord was coming.
There have been endless, endless soothsayers who have said that the Lord is coming. But I have news for you, if you study the Word of God, you find out that the coming of the Lord is in wrath, fury, and indignation. WRATH, FURY, AND INDIGNATION is the signification of the coming of the Lord.
Ok: "...The Lord is coming; it is close at hand (Wheee!)—A day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and of thick mists and darkness, like the morning dawn spread upon the mountains; so there comes a [heathen, hostile] people numerous and mighty, the like of which has never been before and shall not be again even to the years of many generations."
So, we want to profess the Lord is coming; did it ever occur to us that the Lord could be coming in the Islamic invasion? Come on all you bread-basket, heartland, comfy, southern-blood, Bible-belt, Cross-believing Christians that "live next door to the Islam people and they're OK. There ain't nothin' wrong with them folk." No, but there's plenty wrong with you SLEEPER. There's plenty wrong with you LAZY AND HAZY.
Now, am I calling for war against the Muslims? No, I'm calling for a waking up and being aware that we are under the wrath of God. Now, I want you to notice as we go through this chapter, which we will do in the next message more, what do we find out? We find out that God allowed the invasion to be right there—to be right there upon them. And then He gave the promise of Repentance Revolution, and He gave the hope that if all would humble themselves and cry out to God, that possibly God would hear and repent of the very destruction that was at the door.
"Well, that's not ever going to happen to America because God's done shined His grace on us." Sorry folks, that chapter's ended: the Day of the Lord is here.
"He's coming soon!" He is here…HE'S HERE! And as my husband has taught time, and time, and time again, God called the most wicked of men, the most wicked of armies: "His sword, His purpose, His chosen…" Why? Chosen to devastate His own people who are too proud to repent.
Beware of pride, beware of the leaven of pride, beware of resistance against God, beware of thinking somehow you get by—that you can sin, and sin, and somehow God is just going to keep blessing you. That is nonsense, that is sent from the pit of Hell to lead us right up to the very DESTRUCTION THAT IS OBVIOUSLY HERE if we open our eyes to behold the wickedness that is spread out in proud array throughout the land.
And it says: "so there comes a [heathen, hostile] people numerous and mighty, the like of which has never been before and shall not be again even to the years of many generations. A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yes, and none has escaped [the ravages of the devouring hordes]."
So, I'm going to leave you with that, we're going to pick this up in part 2. BUT, LET US REMEMBER THAT GOD CAN USE EVIL FORCES WHEN IT PLEASES HIM TO PROVE TO HIS PEOPLE THEIR NEED TO REPENT! Amen.
