Malachi

Sermon Series

November 11 – December 9, 2012

Again the prophet’s purpose was to assure his people that Yahweh still loved them and was keeping his covenant with them (1:2-5). But he demanded honor, respect, and faithfulness (1:6). The people and priests were not honoring Yahweh. They were dishonoring him with their worship, by their unfaithfulness to marriage vows (2:10-16), by their social injustices (3:5), and by their harsh words bordering on blasphemy (3:13-14). Malachi assures his people that Yahweh knows those who fear him and those who do not. Yahweh calls for his people to repent and return to him (3:7). If they do not return he will come and smite the land with a curse (ban). Since the last word of this book is one of judgment, it should claim the attention of everyone who reads it.

In this time of waiting, Israel […]
