Joel's Repentance Revolution
Gen. Deborah GreenP RAISE GOD. Welcome to Battle Cry Sounding/Battle Cry Pounding, and yes, our God is on the move! He’s calling men, women, and children, throughout the earth, to Repentance Revolution; that is, that they would turn from the wickedness of their own way to take up the way of the Lamb of God, to take up the way of repentance, to take up the way of truth and light, and the mercy that He alone can provide.
Now, today I’m going to be continuing in our previous message entitled: “Joel’s Repentance Revolution (Part 1).” And this is in the 2nd chapter of Joel. And I remember when I was a young Christian, that one of the things that everybody used to quote, because there was a great outpouring of God’s Spirit in those days, was: “And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. Even upon the menservants and upon the maidservants in those days will I pour out My Spirit. And I will show signs and wonders in the heavens, and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke” (Joel 2:28-30).
Anyway, we were all very excited about that, because WE WERE EXCITED TO BE FILLED WITH GOD’S SPIRIT. But, aside from that, there’s more to Joel 2 than the “outpouring;” there’s a lot that goes before it. And as we have been reading in the previous message, we found out that there was an invasion that was coming upon the land, and that’s why the Living God told Joel to blow the trumpet in Zion, and to sound an alarm on the holy mountain, and to declare that the day of the Lord was nigh at hand.
Now, a lot of people think: “Oh, that means that’s a day we’re going to get raptured,” or “That’s the day that Jesus is coming back, and He’s coming soon...He’s coming soon!” But actually, that was a day of wrath, and fury, and indignation revealed by God against His own people. So, as I was stating the last time, we’d better be aware of what we mean if we’re going to go around and say: “He’s coming soon!” -and- ARE WE REALLY READY FOR ANY KIND OF COMING THAT HE WOULD MANIFEST?
God was having Joel to warn the people that “This invasion is upon you; and this invasion will overtake you, and overwhelm you.” It was no joyous rapturous event, it was a time of great calamity, tragedy, and bloodshed. So, God was the One who was sending this evil force against His own people. Because obviously He thought, and He’s never wrong, that His people deserved what this army would give them.
So, let us return to the Scripture here—Joel 2, and we’ll pick up and begin in verse 3 and go on. We left off at verse 4, and already read verse 3, but let’s go over that one again. And this is talking about that army that is coming upon the land. And it says: “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]. Their appearance is like the appearance of horses, and like war horses and horsemen, so do they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of the mountains they leap—like the noise of a flame of fire devouring the stubble, like a mighty people set in battle array. Before them the peoples are in anguish; all faces become pale. They run like mighty men; they climb the wall like men of war. They march each one [straight ahead] on his ways, and they do not break their ranks. Neither does one thrust upon another; they walk every one in his path. And they burst through and upon the weapons, yet they are not wounded and do not change their course. They leap upon the city; they run upon the wall; they climb up on and into the houses; they enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth quakes before them; the heavens tremble. The sun and the moon are darkened and the stars withdraw their shining. And the Lord utters His voice before His army, for His host is very great, and [they are] strong and powerful who execute [God’s] word. For the day of the Lord is great and very terrible, and who can endure it?”
So, the declaration that God is giving here through His prophet Joel is that: “YOU’RE NOT GOING TO STOP AND TURN BACK THIS ARMY.” And, He’s saying that this is “HIS ARMY. HIS ARMY.” So, again, that proves what my husband, General Jim, has taught many times: that God can use heathen force, heathen kings, heathen armies, and heathen troops for His end, for His purpose, and here they are identified as HIS army. Now, why are they identified as “His army?” Because they are the ROD of PUNISHMENT, of JUDGMENT, of His WRATH revealed sent upon God’s own people.
Now, you know there’s a lot of people who say: “Well, God would never send anything harmful to His people, God never does anything or uses anything that’s evil, and blah, blah, blah…” Well, you’d better restudy your theology, because here it is very plainly saying: “The Lord utters His voice before HIS army.” So, it’s only too obvious that He is using this invading force, as I said, as His cudgel/His rod of wrath revealed against His own people.
And then it says: “Therefore also now, says the Lord, turn and keep on coming to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning [until every hindrance is removed and the broken fellowship is restored].” So we see that this is evidence of God’s wrath, and God’s mercy—because even in the midst of His wrath, or I should say the very obvious proclamation of His wrath that is coming, He is giving to them the possibility, through Repentance Revolution, of Him repenting of that wrath.
In other words, He’s saying to them: “Here’s your solution, just take it.” Or, like the physician would say: “Here’s your prescription, use it.” Because He’s saying: “This, and this, and this, and this is coming upon you, but now, TAKE THIS DECLARATION OF REPENTANCE AND DO IT.
And see, that’s exactly the condition, if you look, that the world is in right now—that God IS bringing wrath, fury, and indignation, and yes, there are invading forces, and yes, there are armies of blood-thirsty…BLOODTHIRSTY! Have you ever really thought about what that means? That means literal human beings so empowered by demons that they THIRST for the SHEDDING OF BLOOD. Just like you thirst for water, they thirst for blood, they thirst to see bloodshed, they thirst to murder others, they thirst to see heads cut off, and blood spurting everywhere, and then to proudly display those heads on stakes, and then before cameras.
Now there are such individuals infested and infected by demons who are living right now in THIS LAND. It’s not all in the Middle East, although we’d like to believe that it is. But, the point I’m getting to is that the invasion is basically already here, it’s just waiting for the command.
And we could say: “Well, none of that affects us, that was back in Joel’s day...those barbaric things don’t happen anymore.” It is easy for Americans to say that because they have been the barbarians. We’ve been the barbarians around the world, invading other nations, and taking away any semblance of peace and sanity that they had, to declare our great imperialistic democracy as the only form of government that anyone on earth is allowed to have, and we don’t even have it. And they’re using that as a guise simply for economic strategy to gain the oil resources, to gain the total dominion power etc. etc.
Now, we know that war is useless—those physical carnal wars that men engage in, in order to destroy human lives. But, the point I’m getting to is that we’ve been the imperialistic barbarians—coming in with our perverted sense of democracy and proclaiming that everybody throughout the earth needs this form of government. Says who? God’s the one in control; if God wants people under the iron fist of communism, or under an emperor—if He wants people under the Obama Trauma…He’ll lift His hand if they repent, but if they don’t repent, then they’ll stay under it. They’ll stay under the cruelty of it, the hardness of it, the insanity of it, the confusion etc.
So, it’s not up to any of us to decide what form of government anybody should have. And as you know, in the Middle East crises over here, that we waged how old of a war there (20+ years) for nothing, and claim these people want Democracy. As soon as American troops pulled out, the so-called Democracy troops that we left in charge of the Native sources completely ran from all battle, even though they had the best weapons in the world left by the Americans.
They completely ran from battle, and the blood-thirsty coup that is now reigning took over. So, for all of our billions, and trillions, and zillions, and zee-zooillons (that’s a new one) that are being spent, it did not good at all, and all of the bloodshed, all the human life lost, all the insanity of the returning American troops who were demented demons under the power of “combat drugs,” all of it is for not—except to prove that men are fools. So, the same kind of blood-thirsty invading force is here that has taken over, over there.
But, as usual, we Americans close our eyes and say: “If we just hope for the best, it will go away!” NO, we’ve hoped for the best, and it’s here to stay, because now these blood-thirsty head-choppers are citizens. So, what solution do we have? What solution do we have? We have the same solution which is REPENTANCE REVOLUTION, that God was having the prophet Joel offer to them. So, history does repeat itself, and if we actually read the Bible for what it says, not just some Scripture that we heard 20 years ago, and we’ve been pumping the arm of that well all those years thinking God’s got to answer someday because that’s a promise of God.
As I’ve told you before, God’s promises are always with the “if-clause,” and they’re always contingent on our obedience. So, let’s forget that, let’s just get back and read what’s written here, and we can see that God did give these things for our admonition and instruction in righteousness.
And when you are to the point where it’s desperate, when you are to the point where God is sending His own blood-thirsty, barbaric, cruel, murderous, oppressive force against you for sin, there’s nothing you can do except TURN and keep on TURNING “to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning [until every hindrance is removed and the broken fellowship is restored].”
So, the only solution for the times that we are in, and the wrath of God that is bottled up, waiting for the cork to be popped, you might say, to spew out on any and all, is repentance revolution. REPENTANCE REVOLUTION. And we can see the correlation. Of course you can say: “Well, I haven’t seen any Arabs here!” Well, open your eyes, they’re everywhere. And I’m not saying that the Arab invasion, or the Islamic invasion, is the only invasion, there are multitudes of invading armies that are here in America.
If you read some of the BROWN PEOPLE ARMY literature. Hey, they’re going to call for a blood-shedding overthrow. That’s their whole goal—is to get enough Hispanic people in America to completely overthrow America and take it back for the Central and South American nations. Because, you know, a great portion of this land did once belong to Mexico, and believe me, they have not forgotten it. I found that out when I lived in Mexico. They have not forgotten it. In fact, they probably teach it in their schools—that the day will come when they will regain the empire, and the American people will be sent on the run, or just killed off, because that is the whole goal of the brown army—is that they are preparing likewise for overthrow. And on, and on, and on.
And then of course we have PINK TERRORISM where everybody trembles in fear of the queer, and “If you dare to say that you don’t believe in diversity, then you’re some kind of a criminal that needs to be hung at dawn, and whipped with pink panties or something.” I mean that’s how gross it is—because you can no longer have an opinion that differs with the politically correct status quo. You can’t even think anymore, because if you try to think, and if you’re attached to this measly imperialistic, emperor-led government, if you have a difference of opinion, then you’re put in a reeducation camp, and you’re actually forced by law to be reeducated until you hold the party line. So, the best thing to do is not have any association with it, if you can avoid it.
But, back to the reality, we are in the same condition. Now, we can deny it, we can say: “Ah, that will never happen here, God blessed America.” No honey, GOD’S CURSING AMERICA. God is as angry with America as He was with Israel in the days of Joel—in the days that Joel was declaring: “This invading force is coming because God is saying that He’s going to utter His voice before His army, and all they’re going to do is wreck havoc upon a backslidden people.”
So, if you look a the mighty forces that are aligned against this nation from within, not to mention without, but from within, if you really get aware of the many resources of enemy power that are here, all it takes is God favoring any or all of them to utterly destroy, to UTTERLY DESTROY.
Say: “Well, you can’t say that because the US military’s got the greatest bunch of toys that have ever been given to any boys.” Yeah, and you know what? We haven’t won a war yet. Since we got all our toys for our boys, we haven’t won a war yet!
You know, back in the yellow-ribbon days, twenty-something years ago when granddaddy Bush said: “We’re going to make this big show,” and everybody filmed it, and everybody was supposed to wave these yellow ribbons, I guess because we were cowards, I don’t know what the yellow ribbon means.
But, God told us: “DON’T YOU DARE TAKE A YELLOW RIBBON FROM ANYBODY BECAUSE THERE’S NO WAR WON AT ALL.” He said: “IT WILL DRAG ON, AND ON, AND ON, AND IT WILL BE ENDLESS.” And guess who was right? God. It was just a media-hype, it was just a TV show. And you know, that’s all they do now, they just make shows out of all these crises, or these victories, or whatever.
But you know, for all the toys for the boys, America has not won a war in eons. And we may have the greatest toys on earth, but we can’t even defeat people who are fighting against us with little simplistic weapons...we can’t defeat them. Why? Because God has lifted His hand, and God is not blessing America, God is cursing America.
So, when you see that it is such a time as it is right now, then God, in His mercy, gave to the people of those days, at the same time, He gave the message of WRATH to be revealed momentarily, He also gave the message of the necessity, the absolute DIRE necessity to REPENT. And that’s where we are at—we will be overwhelmed and overtaken as a nation if repentance revolution does not go forth—because that is the only solution for the conditions that we are in. I mean economic collapse is already here. It’s already been proclaimed, the body’s already in the grave rotting, and we’re still trying to act like it’s not true. We’ve decayed so much internally that now one of our big hurrah’s is that Joe, the soldier boy can have sex with his horse or his dog freely because it’s legal in the US military.
HOW DEFUNCT AND DEGRADED CAN YOU BE?! Am I going to see Joe the soldier boy in military housing with his horse? “Calm down Nellie!” It’s sick: psycho-sicko. And now they’re training children in kindergarten about sexual freedom and how to put condoms on bananas, and other exciting things—federally funded, and it’s DEMANDED that these things are taught in the public schools. Demanded—if you don’t teach the pro-homo agenda, you are fired.
So, what is that? That’s nothing but the terrorism, the pink terrorism invading army taking over, that all your children have to be homosexuals and lesbians. So, you either have a bull-dike, or you have a say-Bruce, and that’s considered America these days. It’s true—it’s ugly, it’s perverse, it’s wicked. And if we think God is blessing that, no way: the hand of mercy is lifted. The only way that mercy will be restored is through repentance revolution.
Now, here we’re going to read the dictates that God is giving, now listen to them, through Joel for that Repentance Revolution call. It says: “Therefore also now, says the Lord, turn and keep on coming to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning [until every hindrance is removed and the broken fellowship is restored]. Rend your hearts and not your garments and return to the Lord, your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in loving-kindness; and He revokes His sentence of evil [when His conditions are met].”
So, we have God declaring through the prophet that: “LOOK ALL OF THIS HORROR IS SOON TO BE RELEASED UPON YOU IF YOU DO NOT REPENT. SO, YOU ARE UP AGAINST THE WALL, NOW WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? ARE YOU GOING TO BOW DOWN PROUD HEART? ARE YOU GOING TO BOW DOWN ARROGANT FOOL? ARE YOU GOING TO BOW DOWN SIN-FILLED, REPROBATE, SICKENING VILE NATION?” Or, are you going to continue to resist God?Because, like He’s saying to his own prophet: “Hey, I’m gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in loving-kindness; and He revokes His sentence of evil [when His conditions are met].” It’s not build another mega-church, it’s not have some big Billy Graham remembrance campaign when all of America is coming to Billy: not to God, but to Billy. Oh Billy, hurry up and die!
And on, and on, and on. You know, the falsehood, the delusion, the false promises, there’s only one REAL PROMISE, that’s to the people who repent.
And then it says: “Who knows but what He will turn, revoke your sentence [of evil]…” God is sending the evil! It says: “Revoke your sentence of evil!” It’s God who is allowing the evil to invade this land because of the backslidden condition of His own people.
We can’t blame it on the Chinese, we can’t blame it on the Japanese, we can’t blame it on the Russians: we’ve brought it to ourselves by thinking we can serve the world, we can serve the demon gods, we can serve the god of self, and still be blessed by God.
We went a whoring! We’re like some insane whore that’s laid with everything that came along: degraded, filthy, defiled, unclean, reeking of the odors of our fornications in this land, and we’re muttering in our (drunken sounding) dying breath: “God bless America!” God is not blessing America, open your eyes dodo! Just run into that water faucet, slop some ice-cold water on those old groggy eyes, and look, and you’re going to see exactly what God is saying in this chapter—there are the invading forces that are nigh at hand, and the only, ONLY way out of it is to REPENT.
Going on: “Who knows but what He will turn, revoke your sentence [of evil], and leave a blessing behind Him [giving you the means with which to serve Him], even a cereal or meal offering and a drink offering for the Lord, your God?” So, what is he saying? “You’re so destitute you don’t even have anything to offer to God, and God is the One who can even provide you what you need to offer unto Him.”
Now, isn’t that something?—that we can get so far from God, so destitute, so under the curse that we can’t even offer a meal offering because we don’t have any meal, or a drink offering because we don’t have any drink? And he’s saying that God will even give to you the means to make an offering unto Him.
So, that shows you the mercy of God. Here they are so stripped, so beat down, so on the verge of invasion, and extreme bloodshed, and God is even giving them the offering to offer to Him; now that’s God’s mercy. And even if we have breath left in our bodies, that is God giving us the offering of consent to Jesus, obedience to Jesus, declaration of Jesus, that is God even giving us that life to offer unto Him, TO OFFER UNTO HIM!
Here they are on the verge of utter destruction, and He’s saying: “I’ll give you the very thing that you need to offer to me.”
And then it says: “Blow the trumpet in Zion; set apart a fast [a day of restraint and humility]; call a solemn assembly. Gather the people, sanctify the congregation; assemble the elderly people, gather the children and the nursing infants; let the bridegroom [who is legally exempt from attending] go forth from his chamber and the bride out of her closet. [None is exempt from the humiliation.] Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar; and let them say, Have pity and spare Your people, O Lord, and give not Your heritage to reproach, that the [heathen] nations should rule over them or use a byword against them. Why should they say among the peoples, Where is their God? Then was the Lord jealous for His land and had pity on His people. Yes, the Lord answered and said to His people, Behold, I am sending you grain and juice [of the grape] and oil, and you shall be satisfied with them; and I will no more make you a reproach among the [heathen] nations. But I will remove far off from you the northern [destroyer’s] army and will drive it into a land barren and desolate, with its front toward the eastern [Dead] Sea and with its rear toward the western [Mediterranean] Sea. And its stench shall come up [like that of a decaying mass of locusts, a symbol and forecast of the fate of the northern army in the final day of the Lord], and its foul odor shall come up, because He has done great things [the Lord will have destroyed the invaders]! Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things! Be not afraid, you wild beasts of the field, for the pastures of the wilderness have sprung up and are green; the tree bears its fruit, and the fig tree and the vine yield their [full] strength. Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord, your God; for He gives you the former or early rain in just measure and in righteousness, and He causes to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, as before. And the [threshing] floors shall be full of grain and the vats shall overflow with juice [of the grape] and oil. And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten—the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you. And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame. And you shall know, understand, and realize that I am in the midst of Israel and that I the Lord am your God and there is none else. My people shall never be put to shame.” Amen.
