28 “And afterward,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams,
your young men will see visions.
29 Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days.
– Joel 2: 28-29 (NIV)
The words of the Lord came through His prophet. The prophecy spoke of what the Lord would do through people in the Day of the Lord when He pours out His Spirit.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy. . . The little ones will do big things when the Lord does His thing. Their mouths will prophesy according to the Lord’s will by the power of His Spirit.
your old men will dream dreams. . . Those who seem to be looking forward to leaving this earth will have dreams. They will dream dreams, dreaming by the power of His Spirit.
your young men will see visions. . . The young will have visions. Therefore, the old will have to hear them out because of what will come forth from them by the power of His Spirit.
Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. The Lord will not exclude anyone. men and women will both get the Spirit. No one will be excluded. That’s how it will be in the Day of the Lord.
Joel is not the only prophet who speaks of the Day of the Lord. Other prophets like Isaiah and Zephaniah speak of it. His Spirit will be pourerd out in that day.
