  1. Days.
    Not a week.
    Not a month.
    Not a year.
    The time of Jacob’s trouble lasts DAYS.
    Hosea 6:1, 2.
    No time for his ministry in the trib, he is a member of the body of Christ, he is the temple of v 3:1. The children will tabernacle, no need for a new central temple and no need for sacrifices.

  2. Well written btw.
    Very nicely done. Malachi as the other prophets can be best understood with a knowledge of Christ.
    To rightly divide scripture here, you need to distinguish as the Word does, the difference of the Body of Christ and the Bride.
    What is addressed to one cannot be addressed to the other in scripture and in Malachi the Word is addressed to the Bride and the Children of the bride, specifically the sons of Jacob Genetically. Some Arabs (edomites) have Royal genetic ties now via Solomon and the diaspora and the carried away are everywhere.
    The King will reveal himself so choose wisely. ROMANS 10:9

  3. Then who are the two olive trees and two lamp stands which stand before the lord in heaven? (Rev 11:4, Zec 4:3)

    I see only one fulfillment of the Malachi prophecy for Elijah’s return. John the Baptist clearly says he is NOT Elijah. But came in the “spirit and power” of Elijah. As you point out. The Malachi prophecy specifically says that the Lord will send “the prophet Elijah” to Israel BEFORE the “great and dreadful day of the LORD comes.” This is the real Elijah. Who comes before the “great and dreadful day” which has nothing to do with Jesus’ first coming but to his second coming…which occurs at the end of the 7 year tribulation. That is the great and dreadful day full of Gods wrath.

    Elijah returns with Enoch as the two witnesses in the first half of the tribulation and are killed at the hands of the beast (Elijah’s first death!) Then they are resurrected (to glory) and go up to heaven (Rev 11). I agree that their role is to turn the hearts of Israel back to the Lord. But I believe it is the real Elijah.

    Finally, Moses and Elijah could not have been in their 1 Corinthian 15 bodies at the transfiguration because Jesus had not been raised yet; and He is the first to receive a glorified body! The first fruits! (1 Corinthians 15:20)

    I agree John was a prophetic type of fulfillment. But the actual fulfillment of the Malachi prophecy is the real Elijah as one of the two witnesses who comes to earth again before the great and dreadful day of the Lord (the second coming).

    Respectfully,

  4. How can I believe what you say when the bible clearly states that Elijah, and Elisha were separated by a chariot of fire, and Elijah went up in a whirlwind.
    But I will tell you that Elijah will restore the personal relationship with God, as in the garden. Talking with God in a gentle, soft spoken manner.
    All who do not heed the call by the message of Elijah will not enter through the door. Why? Because we as people, no matter how righteous we think we are, have that knowledge of good, and evil still within us, and will have no part with God, with all the corruption still within us.
    Let that sink into your heart, and get a witness that this is the restoration.
