Not all the signs spoken of by Joel have come to pass here in Acts 2, but Peter is clear, God is beginning to fulfill His final plans for the world. Those plans include His divine judgment for the sins of the wicked. He has mostly delayed His judgment for a long time, but He is holy and just, and “He will judge the world in righteousness” (Ps. 9:8). Once His final judgment begins, the only hope anyone will have is that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
