Joel begins by describing a devastating locust plague upon Judah. The destruction of the locusts pictures the total destruction that could come by an enemy army.  This final and devastating destruction to the land and the nation is called the day of the Lord. This becomes the dominant theme to the end of the book, where we get descriptions of several events surrounding the eschatological “The Day of the Lord,” the period and events at the  Second Advent of Christ.
