Malachi Overview (Part 2)
In this overview of Malachi, Steve Gregg highlights the prophet's message to deliver a warning of coming judgment, emphasize the importance of tithing and highlight the significance of marriage as a sacred covenant. Malachi's writings reveal that God was not pleased with the sacrificial system, but used it as a means to prepare people for Christ. Christians are reminded of the importance of building an intimate relationship with someone who shares their values and should prioritize their relationship with Jesus over romance. The book of Malachi contains a prediction of the coming of Elijah and the great and dreadful day of the Lord, which was fulfilled by John the Baptist and the pouring out of the Spirit at Pentecost.
