Session 2: Rend Your Hearts…Creation Will Respond (Joel 1:1-12, 16-20; 2:1-11)
The Apostle Paul said that creation groans (Romans 8). Sin not only fractured God’s relationship with Adam and Eve; it also fractured Adam’s relationship with Eve. Beyond that, all of the creation experienced this fracture as well. Deuteronomy also promised that if Israel would be faithful to God that God would bless them with rain, and fruitful crops. Be careful of one-to-one correspondence. It is not an unconditional promise. The prophet Joel did connect the dots between a physical plague and a fruitful creation.
