Joel – The Day of the Lord
Joel is one of the 12 Minor Prophets. We know little about him nor do we know precisely when he wrote this book but we do know he was keenly aware of the writings of at least seven of the other OT prophets. Quoting Malachi, Obadiah, Zephaniah, Nahum, Isaiah and Amos profusely through the book. Once again we see that this is divine revelation to a prophet. The word of the Lord. God’s declaration through a prophet to all of God’s people.
