Joel 2:24

“And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil.”

The prophet Joel was telling Israel that God would send rain, the former rain, and the latter rain all in the first month and because of this rain there would be a great harvest (Joel 2:23-24).  Jesus Christ is the former and latter rain.

It is because of Jesus that our floors are full of wheat or bread.  The bread of life that came down from heaven; and that we have experienced the out pour and overflow of wine and oil, the Holy Spirit (Joel 2:28).

Joel 2:25 says, “I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.”   It is because of Jesus that whatever you’ve lost or whatever has been stolen is being restored unto you.  All of the increase that you should have had if you had never lost anything is restored unto you plus present increase.  Increase past and present, former and latter is being restored unto you.  You no longer have to regret your past saying “if only I hadn’t done this or if only I hadn’t done that” because all of what you lost is restored to you.

Therefore, Joel 2:26 says, “And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you; and my people shall never be ashamed.”   Because of Jesus the only thing left for you to do is Eat, Praise, Live!
