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.

    I believe it means God will rebuke the devour depending upon the times you 're in. Back then it wasn 't money it was land, cattle, etc but in these times it 's money or anything of value because if he abides in us and We abide in him anything We ask that will he do.
  • it means just what it says!!! it has nothing to do with Money it was neaver money!!
