Joel 3:15 Meaning and Commentary

Joel 3:15

The sun and moon shall be darkened
Both the politic and ecclesiastic state of antichrist shall be ruined and destroyed; it shall "fare" with Rome Papal as it did with Rome Pagan, at the time of its dissolution; see ( Revelation 6:12 Revelation 6:13 ) ( 16:8 ) ; and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
antichristian princes and nobles in the civil state, and the clergy of all ranks in the church state, shall lose their glory.

Joel 3:15 In-Context

13 Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Go in, tread, for the wine press is full. The vats overflow, for their wickedness is great.
14 Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
15 The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining.
16 The Lord roars from Zion, and utters his voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shake. But the Lord is a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.
17 So you shall know that I, the Lord your God, dwell in Zion, my holy mountain. And Jerusalem shall be holy, and strangers shall never again pass through it.
