Obedience and Joel 2   General Discussion

I  think we could all agree that God is severe at times, specifically with His own. It seems every Christian will have their own “Day of the Lord” until they submit to Gods plan. If they don’t, then they and their whole family will be destroyed.

A good example is Jonah. He tried to disobey God and ended up in a life or death situation. He ended up submitting to God, but I speculate that he would’ve died in the whale if he hadn’t. 

We are all facing our Day of the Lord (probably from our own disobedience) and now we are seeing the potential anger of God and the suffering or our families. Unless we submit and turn to God, we will be destroyed with no way out and nowhere to turn.

Job 42:5-6 I had heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye has seen You; Therefore I abhor myself, and I repent In dust and ashes.

Formerly Job held to his integrity (2:9). Finally he realized that there are none righteous, repented, and was recovered by

If he hadn’t repented, or gave in at any point, God would’ve destroyed him, or left him in a defeated state.

Right. God desires all men to be saved and to come to the full knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:4


Joh n 6:40 For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes into Him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up in the last day.
