Bible Journey > Malachi

Here are my thoughts and highlights from Malachi as I continue my journey through the Bible:

  • Malachi means “My Messenger”
  • Hard to date most likely between 515 – 433 B.C. (Post exile, post rebuilt temple, around time of Ezra/Nehemiah)
  • When we see how faithfully God loves the prompted response is to want more
  • God is not amused by half-hearted worship
  • True teaching enhances life and bad teaching messes up lives
  • God inhabits the smallest details of marriage
  • Universalism and people who can’t deal with a judgmental God have been around for a long time
  • The context of Malachi 3:10 is robbing God. Yeah, test God with the tithe and see if he doesn’t provide, but the alternative is to steal from God.
  • Ends with some powerful prophecy about Jesus: “healing in his wings” “Elijah will prepare the way”
