This Passage highlights God’s character as a righteous judge.  In comparison to previous parts of Joel, we see God as: “gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and he relents over disaster." (Joel 2:13) Today, we’ll see that those who unrepentantly abuse God’s people, then and now, are those who incur God’s perfect justice.  We also see that to sin against God’s people is to sin against God Himself.  This is wonderful news for God’s people, and a sobering truth for those who refuse God and abuse His people.

Psalm 37:27-31
 
“Turn away from evil and do good; so shall you dwell forever. For the LORD loves justice; he will not forsake his saints.They are preserved forever, but the children of the wicked shall be cut off.
The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever. The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice. The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not slip.”
