From KJV Joel 2:1-32

Joel 2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
Joel 2:18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
Joel 2:19 Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:
Joel 2:20 But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because
Joel 2:21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.
Joel 2:22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.
Joel 2:23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
Joel 2:24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.
Joel 2:25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
Joel 2:26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
Joel 2:27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
Joel 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
Joel 2:29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
Joel 2:30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.
Joel 2:17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Wher
Joel 2:16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
Joel 2:2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations
Joel 2:3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
Joel 2:4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
Joel 2:5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
Joel 2:6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
Joel 2:7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
Joel 2:8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
Joel 2:9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
Joel 2:10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
Joel 2:11 And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
Joel 2:12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
Joel 2:13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
Joel 2:14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?
Joel 2:15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
Joel 2:32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

Post subject: the last verse
User Location: San Diego, CA
"Whosoever CALLS upon the NAME of the LORD
will be SAVED." (capitals mine)
First of all, I believe that one must know what it means
to CALL, in this verse. It is grace that a person even
will think about calling on the name of the Lord in the
intense, wicked last days. The original Hebrew word
implies an ardent, powerful, passionate movement of
the soul toward G-d. So, in a sense, this may include
repentance as a prerequisite to the effectual crying
out to G-d, as faith is required. ("When the son of
Man returns will He find faith on the earth?"}
Secondly. to call on the NAME of the Lord, one must
know what the name of the Lord is! There are many
idols, false religions, etc. Even modern Christianity
falls short. Most do not even know the Hebrew name
for Jesus is Y'shua. And the Old Testament holds
many "names" for the one true Creator, yet none of them
include the letter "J", as this does not exist in the
Hebrew. Therefore J-hovah should actually be read as
Y-hovah. The name choice for the Lord that one makes
would vary according to the faith and knowledge that
the individual possesses. Of course, since the name
Jesus Christ (Yeshua Maschiakh) is the name by which
men are to be saved, as He is the Sacrifice Lamb of
God who takes away the sins of the world, and whose
very name means SALVATION (and ANOINTED ONE), it
makes sense that this is the name to call upon.
Thirdly, the LORD is He whose name we are calling
upon, and I believe that because He should be the
Lord of every aspect of our lives, as He is the
Author and Finisher of our faith, our entire lives
should reflect that He is truly reigning in our hearts.
The "calling on the name of the Lord" is therefore
not only a one time act, but a way of life, an ongoing
process of clinging to G-d, of relying on Him.
Finally, "will be saved" is the equivalent of
"will be delivered". I believe that this in effect
means that He will deliver us not only from the evil
adversary, but also from our sin nature, from disease,
from poverty, and from delusion.
Because of the phrases that follow, and because of the
way the verse begins, I also believe that this is a
prophetic verse. This verse is talking about those
of us who have accepted Jesus Christ (and those who
are yet to accept Him)
Isn't this a powerful verse? As we look toward the
fulfilment of it in the Holy Land, we should rest
in the assurance that we are His people, and His holy city!
("The kingdom of heaven is within you.")
