Malachi 1‑4
Listen from:
(messenger of Jah)
Jehovah’s last pleadings with the returned remnant. In spite of God’s special love and His having restored the remnant (Ezra and Neh.), they had sunken to the lowest ebb of moral insensibility and impudent reasoning of unconcern. Nevertheless, God would send His two forerunners: John the Baptist, at Christ’s coming in grace, and Elijah, preceding His coming in judgment at the great and terrible Day of the Lord.
A feeble remnant within the formal remnant are encouraged by the assurance of their becoming His peculiar treasure in His glorious day.
B.C. 397.
