Gaebelein, A.C. - The Prophet Joel
Minor Prophets Literal Dispensationalism Eschatalogy (Endtimes) Rapture Living a Christian Life Joel
9.x - 10.x
For more than half a century evangelist, author, journalist, and Bible expositor Arno C. Gaebelein passionately proclaimed the prophetic truths of the Bible and daily lived with the hope of their fulfillment. With a ministry that bridged two centuries and endured two world wars, Gaebelein never doubted the relevance of the study of prophecy for spiritual growth and for interaction with the chaos of culture. In the midst of the thundering storms of World War I, he encouraged Christians not to despair, for the trials of this world would one day give way to the triumph of Christ. In 1915 he wrote:
The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back! He may be here at any moment! He may come today! Now this is not a foolish assertion that He will come today. Nor is it the setting of a specific time for Him to come, which would be equally foolish and wrong; yet many do it. It is the sober statement of a fact, to arouse souls from their carelessness and indifference, and point them to the clear testimony of God's only Word that the Lord Jesus is coming again , and may be here today (Meat in Due Season, 64).
C.I. Scofield said in the Forward...
Of all the prophetic writings the Book of Joel has, perhaps, suffered most at the hands of modern writers. The destructive critics assert that Joel wrote after the Babylonian captivity of Judah, and even after the reconstructive work of Ezra and Nehemiah. In Joel as in Daniel they confront the alternative, either of allowing the predictive and therefore supernatural character of the book as a Divine revelation of the future, or of finding a naturalistic interpretation which eliminates inspiration. If Joel wrote in the time of Joash, then, incontestably, he was inspired. But that, to quote Welhausen, "Would be to surrender our dearly bought scientific method." To preserve the "method" the unanimous voice of antiquity, of Jewish scholarship, and of the most cogent internal evidence, are ruthlessly set aside!
But Joel has not only suffered in the house of his enemies, but also in the house of his well intentioned friends. The method of interpretation which finds in the Christian Church the fulfilment of all Old Testament prophecy concerning Messiah's Kingdom ; and in the destruction of Jerusalem, A. D. 70, the fulfilment of all prophecies concerning the day of Jehovah, has robbed the Book of Joel of its proper, natural, and unforced meaning.
It is, therefore, matter for sincere gratitude that in our day a writer whose knowledge of the whole body of predictive truth, and its inter-relations, has taken up this great portion of the Word of God for sane, reverent and adequate treatment. Having had the privilege of reading the advance sheets of this book, I count it a privilege to commend it to believers everywhere, and an honor to be thus associated with its publication.
