Joel 2:24 Meaning and Commentary

Joel 2:24

And the floors shall be full of wheat
The churches of Christ, which will now be in Judea, and in the Gentile world, which are his "floors", ( Matthew 3:12 ) ; and which will be set up everywhere through the preaching of the Gospel, the descent of the former and latter rain; these will be full of precious souls gathered in, compared to wheat, and of the choice and excellent, doctrines of the Gospel, and of all spiritual provisions, ( Matthew 13:30 ) ( Jeremiah 23:28 ) ; and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil;
with the wine of Gospel doctrine, and the oil of true grace; there shall be a flow, an overflow, a redundancy of these, both in the ministers of the word and private Christians, in whom the grace of God shall abound and superabound; see ( Romans 5:20 ) ( 1 Timothy 1:14 ) .

25 "I will restore to you the years that the locusts ate, the grasshoppers, shearer-worms and cutter-worms, my great army that I sent against you.
26 You will eat until you are satisfied and will praise the name of ADONAI your God, who has done with you such wonders. Then my people will never again be shamed.
