in the valley of decision!
For the day of the LORD is near
in the valley of decision.
The sun and the moon are darkened,
and the stars withdraw their shining.
The LORD roars from Zion,
and utters his voice from Jerusalem,
and the heavens and the earth shake.
But the LORD is a refuge for his people,
a stronghold for the people of Israel.
So you shall know that I, the LORD your God,
dwell in Zion, my holy mountain.
And Jerusalem shall be holy,
and strangers shall never again pass through it.
In that day
the mountains shall drip sweet wine,
the hills shall flow with milk,
and all the stream beds of Judah
shall flow with water;
a fountain shall come forth from the house of the LORD
and water the Wadi Shittim.
(Joel 3:14-18, NRSV)
The day of the Lord is near!
And for those of us who know the Lord this is a good thing. For the Lord is our refuge. He is our shelter in the storm. He is our holy habitation!
The mountains will drip wine on that day, and the hills will flow with milk.
God will provide for those who take shelter under His wings.
The dry places will flow with water as a fountain from the throne of the Lord and He will provide for His people.
Near is the day of the Lord, wait for Him and take shelter in His wings!
