OUR LORD WHO INTERVENES ON OUR BEHALF
Joel chapter 1 verse 14 says this;
Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly. Summon the elders and all who live in the land to the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord.
In the face of a devastating famine that was beginning to torment the land, the Lord counseled His people to ameliorate the upcoming harsh conditions by declaring a holy fast, calling a sacred assembly, gathering all the elders and the people to the house of the Lord and then crying out to the Lord.
Sincerely and humbly asking for His intervention can cause Him to have mercy and bring His power to bear in the protection of His people.
As the nation started to feel the effects of food shortages, the Lord, in Joel chapter 2 rises to the defence of His people with a mighty army mustered for war.
The forces of darkness that had gained control over the systems of this world, attempted to use that control to gain power over all the people of the earth.
It is at this point that the army of God heard the command of the Lord and the forces of darkness were torn apart under the unrelenting and disciplined attacks by the kingdom of righteousness.
Bless the Lord who intervenes on our behalf.
