Some time ago I wrote about the Great Tsunami
which will hit the whole world. In the article I also mentioned that the riders of this powerful wave will be the ones that bring change to the civilization of the world.
Thousands of years ago, these riders were foreseen by prophets of Israel. One of the strongest prophecy ever given about them was recorded in Joel 2.
Blow the shofar in Tziyon!
Sound an alarm on my holy mountain!
Let all living in the land tremble,
for the Day of Adonai is coming!
It's upon us!
-a day of darkness and gloom,
a day of clouds and thick fog;
a great and mighty horde
is spreading like blackness over the mountains.
There has never been anything like it,
nor will there ever be again,
not even after the years of many generations.
(Joel 2:1-2 Complete Jewish Bible)
In both verses above, Joel was talking about a nation, a mighty horde, a generation that would rise after the shofar of GOD was blown, which would mark the end of time. When we read the description of this nation or horde in verse 1 and 2, we are amazed. The number of the people will be great like a dark overcast covering the mountains. There has never been any generation just like them and there will be none like them ever in the future.
They look like horses,
and like cavalry they charge.
With a rumble like that of chariots
they leap over the mountaintops,
like crackling flames devouring stubble,
like a mighty horde in battle array.
(Joe 2:4-5 CJB)
The description of the people here is so amazing. A horse is a symbol of strength and speed, and this generation that would come was described as a "cavalry". Another translation reads "war horses" instead of "cavalry". This generation is not a generation of the children of God. They are mighty warriors, skillful, courageous and ingenious.
At their presence the peoples writhe in anguish,
every face is drained of color.
(Joe 2:6 CJB)
Note that the presence of this generation will bring fear upon the nations. They walk and move with great authority and power from the Holy One of Israel and every living being that defy Him will tremble before them.
Like warriors they charge,
they scale the wall like soldiers.
Each one keeps to his own course,
without getting in the other's way.
They don't jostle each other,
but stay on their own paths;
they burst through defenses unharmed,
without even breaking rank.
They rush into the city,
they run along the wall,
they climb up into the houses,
entering like a thief through the windows.
(Joe 2:7-9 CJB)
Read carefully the verses above and imagine a multitude of soldiers drawing in to you from all direction. They march in order and stay on their own paths as to not become a stumbling block for each other.
