Joel 1, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Isaiah 55:10-11, Daniel 9:24-27, Daniel 11:31, Matthew 24:15-21, Daniel 12:9, Revelation 18:7-8, 2 Peter 3:5-7, 2 Peter 3:9-13, Romans 3:21-26


The prophecy of Joel is clearly (in my opinion) an “end-times” prophecy – the fulfillment of which is yet in the future. It interlocks completely with other end-times prophecies found in Daniel, Ezekiel, Zechariah, Matthew 24, Revelation. The overarching theme of these prophecies is the coming “Day of the Lord” which will bring the utter destruction of the current universe and God’s creation of an entirely new world in which sin and all the curses sin brought into the first creation – death, disease, famine, war, pain, sorrow, and everything else we collectively call “evil” – are purged completely and eternally.

In this study we will examine Joel’s prophecy and how it interlocks with other prophecies about the coming Day of the Lord.

The purposes of the lesson are to give recommendations regarding the way we should approach eschatology (and any theological study), list some of the questions our eschatological investigations seek to answer, provide some selected scripture references relevant to various aspects of eschatology, and give a broad overview of some traditional eschatological belief systems.
