“I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the LORD Almighty. Malachi 3:1
God fulfilled these prophecies when he sent John The Baptist as the messenger and his only begotten Son Jesus as our Messiah. When Jesus said he was going to rebuild the temple in 3 days they didn’t understand at the time. But it’s prophesied right here, as Jesus rose from the dead, defeating Satan and creating the new covenant that we all may be Children of God
But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap Malachi 3:2
We are all sinners and have fallen short to the Glory of God, none of us are worthy to stand before God. But only thru Jesus, who thru his atonement sacrifice, redeemed us of our sins and made us righteous before God. Without Jesus its not possible to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the LORD will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness, and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the LORD, as in days gone by, as in former years. Malachi 3:3-4
Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He sits at the right hand of God and has been given all authority over Heaven and Earth. Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, develop a relationship with him, otherwise on judgment day he will say “Depart from me I never knew you”
“So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, but do not fear me,” says the LORD Almighty. Malachi 3:5
Many still today deny Jesus as there Lord and Savior, but make no mistake about it one day everyone will meet him face to face during their trial of judgement. Question is will Jesus know you as his faithful follower or a rebellious enemy? Jesus is the Truth, Life, and Way nobody gets to the Father except thru him in Jesus Name Amen
