Multitudes in the valley of decision. Joel 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
IChron. 12:32 the children of Issachar understood the times
–Dan 12:10. Wicked men will not understand, but the wise will understand.
The time is coming when all living mankind will be in the valley of decision for the very last time during this age.
Psalm 83:2-4, those who hate God are today conspiring against His people His Nation and His land. In this Psalm vs’s 16-18 we see that this prayer asks for two things involving a time of decision; that Israel’s enemies either turn and know the lord, or that they be humiliated and perish. This day will come for all of the surrounding enemies of the middle-East. But the valley of decision will reach around the globe in that day.
For behold, Your enemies make an uproar, And those who hate You have exalted themselves. They make shrewd plans against Your people, And conspire together against Your treasured ones. They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more.” Fill their faces with dishonor, That they may seek Your name, O Lord. Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever, And let them be humiliated and perish, That they may know that You alone, whose name is the Lord, Are the Most High over all the earth.
So how do we get to the place where these end time events place people worldwide in the valley of decision? According to these scriptures there will come a war involving the humiliation of Israel’s enemies, those who seek to destroy them. In order to accomplish the prayed for result there will be an overwhelming defeat of Islam’s terrorist organizations, which will set up for Islam their valley of decision, where moderate Islam will then choose either for or against our lord. But it would appear based on prophesied events that this defeat will destroy Islam, and cause Muslims and all who oppose God to choose between the Lord or the Antichrist who will be established in those days. The nations have been preparing to enter that valley requiring this same decision for many decades now.
At this juncture in time the Apostle Paul says that there are two things that will lead to the coming of the Day of the Lord. Christianity (the offspring of Israel) will experience it’s own valley of decision as a falling away will occur as she finds herself to be the lone enemy of the beast system of Revelation 13. All other religions with the exception of Judaism will have been incorporating themselves into the one world religion put together by the false prophet (It is the belief of many, myself included, that Catholicism will fill this role).
Israel at this time will be involved in a short lived covenant until that covenant is broken at the onset of Armageddon, which will evolve into the final war of this age. The time of Jacobs trouble will lead Israel into her own valley of decision as they struggle with the acceptance of Jesus as their Messiah and savior. The end of which struggle will culminate in His coming. Jesus put it like this–Matthew 23:39 For I say to you, from now on you will not see Me until you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’” Also see Hosea 5:15. When Israel turns to Jesus this will compleat the Olive tree, the bride of Christ, and the Bridegroom will enter this world from the eastern sky with His saints, the dead in Christ shall rise first. Their souls will meet their bodies in the air as Christ returns.
John 3:29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. So this joy of mine has been made full.
These words were stated by John the Baptist concerning Jesus, but an even greater rejoicing will occur at His Second Coming.
