Joel was very wise in how he couched his words. You don’t ever want to be wrong when discussing prophecy. When I gave an expository study thru the book of Revelation, the following quote was always embedded in my mind.
“If we were to err, it would be better to err on the side of interpretive restraint, than on the side of interpretive excess.” Expositor Earl F. Palmer
America and Israel would be better off with Joel Rosenberg in the Whitehouse, that’s for sure.
