Yahweh wants to harvest the wicked ones (Joel 3:13-3:13)

“Put in the sickle!

The harvest is ripe!

Go in!

Tread!

The wine press is full!

The vats overflow!

Their wickedness is great!”

Yahweh, via Joel, wanted the Israelites to get out their sickles. The harvest of wickedness was ripe. They were to go in and tread down the wicked ones. The winepress and the vats were full and overflowing with great wickedness. It was time to take action.
