Joel 3:13‭-‬14 – GNB – They are very wicked; cut them down like corn at harvest time; crush them as grapes are crushed in a full winepress until the wine runs over.”  Thousands and thousands are in the Valley of Judgement. It is there that the day of the LORD will soon come.

For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision [when judgment is executed].

Bible verse in Yoruba

 

Joeli 03:13-14 – Ẹ tẹ̀ doje bọ̀ ọ, nitori ikore pọ́n: ẹ wá, ẹ sọkalẹ; nitori ifunti kún, nitori awọn ọpọ́n kún rekọja, nitori ìwa-buburu wọn pọ̀.

14 Ọ̀pọlọpọ, ọ̀pọlọpọ li afonifojì idajọ, nitori ọjọ Oluwa kù si dẹ̀dẹ ni afonifojì idajọ.

 

Key: Jesus is coming back again and He is coming back soon, not as a lamb to be slaughtered for our redemption as he already did but as a Lion…that can be quite scary!!. But think of it like this, Jesus is coming to take us all to a better place than this, this part of our existence just for us to enjoy part of God’s work for us; do His will by fulfilling purpose and enjoying all Jesus’ sacrifice has bought. 

So, give your life to Jesus Christ today so you’d not be left out and if you have strayed please find your back into the Father’s wide open loving hands. He has always awaited your return, just take a moment to say a word of prayer of salvation/re-dedication to him and He’d take it up from there.

If you’d like to give your life to Christ, please pray this: “Father, I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I confess that Jesus died for me, took all my infirmities and raised Him from the dead. Lord please have mercy on me. I accept Jesus today as my Lord and Saviour. Amen.”
