September 30 "Have We Robbed God?" Malachi 1, 2, 3, 4


Disturbing questions here.
Do we ask the same questions today?

How have you loved us, God, cause we don't see it.
How have we polluted you, God, cause we don't know.
How have we wearied you with our words, God.
How do we really return to you.
How have we robbed you.
How have we spoken against you.

If we really understand the sin in our hearts, we wouldn't be asking these questions. We are guilty. And it is covered. And God pursues us even in the midst of our sins. So return and repent. For there is a First Coming of Baby Jesus that we know---and a Second Coming of Christ, burning like an oven, where all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble. Malachi 4:1

But you. Fear His Name.
The Sun of Righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Mal. 4:2
And you will be like Jerusalem dancing once again.
Leaping like calves from the stall.
The Great Day is just Around the Corner.
That's what Malachi said.
And the Lord goes silent for a few hundred years.
Now, we have no prophets.
We have the sacred scriptures, the Living Word.

COME BOLDLY:  Timeless Prayers
Dear Father, As we close the Old Testament, would you shed your Light on what we have read.  Bring to mind and heart.  Make sense of this life ours.  Come Lord Jesus!
