One significant part of Joel’s prophesy regarding God’s Spirit being poured out (see yesterday’s reading) was that it would be upon “all flesh” (Joel 2: 28). God’s intent and purpose had always been that salvation would be for all men and the offer of salvation would go to all people. Unfortunately, by Jesus’ day, the Jewish nation had come to see themselves as the exclusive objects of God’s interest. Such a conclusion could not be further from the truth—as evidenced by the Spirit’s leading the conversion of Gentiles as recorded in the books of Acts. Today’s reading is a sampling of prophecies that clearly show that God’s interest has always been in all of mankind.
