Amen brother. May God give us grace to see Him through the din of man’s confusion.

Only Jesus can be all things to all people.

I’m glad there is a Joel . . . This world has plenty of fire and brimstone spokespersons if one cares to look.

And, I’m thankful for fire and brimstone preachers. They taught me very starkly clearly some hint of what it means to fall into the hands of an angry God unprepared to meet Him.

Joel DOES get to things like taking each thought captive etc. He preaches from the whole counsel of Scripture while emphasizing an extremely positive focus.

Scripture itself insists that we are to think on

whatsoever things are lovely, of good report etc.

Perhaps Joel carries that much further than most would carry it. God is his paymaster and boss. Am quite willing to leave his disciplines, if necessary, to God.
