    Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

    JOEL 2:28-32

    The promise began to be fulfilled on the day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit was poured out, and it was continued in the converting grace and miraculous gifts conferred on both Jews and Gentiles.

    The judgments of God upon a sinful world, only go before the judgment of the world in the last day. Calling on God supposes knowledge of him, faith in him, desire toward him, dependence on him, and, as evidence of the sincerity of all this, conscientious obedience to him.

    Those ONLY shall be delivered in the great day, who are now effectually called from sin to God, from self to Christ, from things below to things above.

    [mishael: from other commentaries I read, the inference is that "casual Christians" may be goats we read of in other scriptures in the New Testament]

    You can put your scripture in Google like this, and read some of the longer commentaries by Bible scholars. On any scripture you have questions about.
