Joel 2:30 “…Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.”

Blood fire and pillars of smoke

Commentary By: Gordon King

The bible tells us to watch for the signs of the times.  Jesus warns us to watch for His second coming and tells us what to watch for.  We need to be watching, keeping our eyes, ears, hearts, and spirits on high alert for what is happening around us.  I believe that these events are not just coincidence my friends, but prophetic signs from the Lord.  The prophet Joel tells us the signs to come before the great and awesome day of the Lord.

Joel 2:30-31

“30 “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth:
Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.”

Notice that Joel did not say how long before the great and awesome day of the Lord, but, “before”.  I believe we are living in the last days, and that we are beginning to see the signs.  Blood, fire, and pillars of smoke.  Blood.  We sure have seen a lot of blood spilled in the past decade and it continues on a massive scale.  Not only have we seen blood shed, but also many waters turning blood-red.


Blood Red Waters. 

These are only a few of the numerous examples of the waters turning blood-red.  There has also been blood-red rain in many parts of the world.  Many people will say that it’s no big deal and have an explanation for why.  However, I ask does it really matter why?  What difference does it make why?  The fact is that the waters are turning blood-red as predicted in the bible!  If there were only a few incidents of this happening, then ok, maybe just a fluke.  But it is happening worldwide on a grand scale.

Fire and Pillars of Smoke.

Joel also predicts fire and pillars of smoke.  The world is on fire my friends.  Literally on fire.  We have seen fire and pillars of smoke on a grand scale since the bombing of the World Trade Centers and the Iraq war.  When the oil fields of Kuwait were set ablaze by the Iraqi forces.  We have seen massive fires and pillars of smoke throughout the world ever since.  These are only a few of the fires and pillars of smoke the world has seen since September, 2001.

Just a mere coincidence or bible prophecy?  Too many incidents to be just a coincidence.  Not at any other time in history have we had all of these signs occurring together at the same time.   And these are only some of the signs spoken of in the bible,  I’ll save the others for another post.  Take it as you will, biblical signs or just natural occurrences not relating to the bible.  As for me, I’ll take them as signs from God.  After-all, He’s the one that truly matters.

God gives us many warnings, many chances to turn to Him and repent of our wicked, sinful ways.  Accept Him as your Lord and Savior before it’s too late.  God giving warnings has been shown throughout history.  Before judgement is passed, He shall give us warnings.  He is patient, and merciful.  But, He will not wait forever.  These are warning signs as to the closeness of the Lord’s return.  If you have not already accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior then I strongly urge you to do so now.  None of us live forever on earth, at some point our time is up.  It could be today, it could be tomorrow.  Don’t wait another minute.  Do it now!

God Bless my friends, until next time!

  1. You’re doing the good work of the watchman on the wall Gordon. You are right on, God keep you diligent and the door open to plead for the salvation of the lost. I’m sorry to say and in no way condemning but it breaks my heart how asleep and lethargic the church has become in America. We desperately need to wake up and repent. We are seeing a trend of godlessness that is accelerating my the day, the rapture will happen very soon which I have to keep in mind that is good news because it will portend the eventual day of the Lord’s return and the casting of the devil into the bottomless pit.

  2. It’s coming Ethin. It is very sad to say that most churches are not teaching about the times we are living in, nor do they teach from the book of Revelation. Maranatha!

  3. So, so true! God is merciful and patient. The signs are all around us IF people just open their eyes to the reality around them, except of making excuses! But that’s just it, REALITY is too painful to accept, much better to PRETEND, HEAR our preachers, politicians tell us all is well. While chaos is rapidly multiplying. Yet proclaiming peace…. hello, is anybody listening..? anybody watching..? Sadly very few are connecting the dots. Woe to man who refuses, ignores the sayings of Scriptures. The next blood moon I fear we will not recognize America as the land of the free, we have given up our God given rights; our rights in the constitution; in “God we Trust”. We have turned our backs on our allies, especially Israel, in which God said he will bless those who bless Israel. Gordan how well you have shown our demise from within, and this is just a few. Keep spreading the GOSPEL, the good news that Jesus is just a prayer of the heart in accepting his grace of peace, accepting Him as Savior, comforter in these times, the only one that counts! praying people wake up. God bless.

  6. That sounds awesome Sikilayi. The Lord is giving many vision and dreams in these last days.

    I pray that The Lord blesses your ministry according to His will. I cannot speak for your ministry nor ask readers to send money, as I do not ask for money on this site. Each reader must follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

    God bless!
