Psalm: 88

Meditation

Malachi: Both the nativities of John the Baptist and of Jesus are foretold here. When Jesus returns this prophecy will be fulfilled after the tribulation. We see a split pictured here: there are two comings but Malachi, as with other OT prophets saw both advents as a single event – one of judgment and one of incarnation. The LORD also accuses the people of robbing Him in withholding their tithes and offerings. This is not unlike Ananias and Sapphira as reported in Acts 5. While their sin was lying to the Holy Spirit, it was sill about withholding offerings.

Gospel: Luke 18:1-8

New Testament: James 5:7-12

Old Testament: Malachi 3:1-12
