Bible Prophecy Commentary:
Locusts were one of the forms God used for judgment in the Old Testament. He warned time and time again about the idolatry, rejection, rebellion, pride, greed and lust that infected the people of that time – Ex 10. Joel warned that before the Day of the Lord, yet to come, locusts would cause terrible devastation in the land – Joel 1:4-7. Joel then urged the people to repent of their sin and return to the Lord. Is this one of the messages God is sending upon mankind today?
Keep alert, keep watch, keep your eyes on Israel and keep in prayer.
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh" – Luke 21:28
