Wesley's Notes for Malachi 3:11


3:11 The devourer - All kind of devourers, the locusts, the canker - worm, and the caterpillar, which though they are in incredible multitudes, yet a rebuke from God will check them all at once, as if they were but one. For your sakes - For your good. Your vine - Your vine shall carry their fruit 'till they are fully ripe.

    Disciple ty my man but you are not understanding there are 2 of everything in the bible. 2 kinds of GRAVES 2 kinds of death, 2 kinds of life, Jesus said let the dead bury their dead which is spritual death, John said in her was found human life the souls of men which is a spritual grave which answers to religion,Babylon, HE TELLS THE PHARISEES N SCRIBES YOU ARE AS GRAVES THAT APPEAR NOT.

    Like I wrote to you before; You have to wait for God to give you understanding of the Scriptures, through proving over time and continuing faithful, learning from Jesus who is meek and lowly in heart. The Lake of Fire IS NOT FOR REFINING AND PURIFYING; but for everlasting destruction of those who will be forever rejected as worthless and bad! The Lake of Fire is for those whom God NO LONGER LOVES!

    Jesus said i come to bring fire on the earth meaning on humanity and he said every sacrifice has to be salted with fire which is his baptism of fire that we soo need and every liar ( sinner ) will have their part in the LAKE OF FIRE AND HIS FIRE IS HIS WORD AS JEREMIAH SAID I WILL MAKE THE WORDS IN YOUR MOUTH AS FIRE AND THIS PPL THE WOOD,We be th red heifer that is gonna be consumed to ashes GBU
  • Alex
    Imo the LAKE OF FIRE is his Judgement more importantly his love for humanity,even in the natural we chastise our kids b/c we love em Ya gotta realize that our God is consuming fire that is gonna consume our evil Adamic nature Mal 3 says who shall abide the day of his coming, who shall stand when he appears HE SHALL BE AS A REFINERS FIRE AND FULLERS SOAP, i.e his baptism of fire,his love/judgement.

    Years ago I decided to take the tithe and give directly to people who were in obvious need, like people whose husbands were killed, kids who were going hungry or malnourished, houses for those with fire losses, people looking for work hitching (2day a car = shoes r camel) so as I did so God caused everything I did to explode in success. I only say, never do this unless ur church isn't doing right.
