Wesley's Notes for Malachi 1:7


1:7 Bread - Either the meal - offerings, or rather in a more large sense, all sacrifices and oblations. Ye say - Perhaps in words; at least your deeds speak your thoughts. The table - This comprehends all that was offered to God.

    God is not a respecter of any man, but he had respect to them that love him. He had respect to Noah's sacrifice and Abel.

    Landon:No man can come to Christ except the Father draw him:John6:44 He is faithful to forgive--1John1:9. He will baptize with the Holy Ghost and fire: Matthew3:11. Without Him we are dead, we can do nothing! We can only show true love and forgiveness when he lives within us.
    More are going to hell then to heaven! 2 ways:Matthew7:13-14.
    Revelations20:15 To late!
    Name written in glory:"yours"?

    the first thing you need to do Is want forgiveness and be willing to forgive those who have hurt you as well this goes hand in hand then out loud or in your head use the lords prayer and believe you received as well as you gave the very same forgiveness and you can begin learning the word agape which means unconditional love at least this is what I understand the bible is the knowledge.
