In formation concerning The children of the East,their activities of destruction,their temperament are all in Bible. The book of Joel tells us also when in earths History these features will be most prominent.
Joe 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;
Joe 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.
Joe 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.
Joe 2:6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
Joe 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.
Joe 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.
Joe 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 chapter 2 and Revelation 9 is the same prophesy about Islam, one having details the other does not have. Remember “the Spirit of the prophets are subject to the prophets for God is not the author of confusion” 1 Cor 14:32, 33

Geneses 17:18-20 Describes the sons of Ishmael the children of the East as a “great nation” a “godowly” people which means a mighty people. The same understanding is here given in Joel 2:2 “ a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it” .
Thus Joel 2 description of Islam is the truth that we face today, it is present truth, this is another among the many biblical evidence we are indeed in the last days.
Joe 2:1 says : 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; While Revelation 9 describes Islam, Joel 2 tells the people of God what they need to do in time when Islam is angering the nations.
