Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Malachi 3:6

3:6 I change not - I have an unchangeable hatred to sin: and my long suffering also changeth not, therefore you are not consumed in your sins. Not consumed - God is the same in his wisdom to order the rewards of good and bad in the fittest season, therefore neither the one nor the other are consumed, but preserved to the season appointed of God.

Discussion for Malachi 3

  • Brianna
    Vs. 18 brings out that there is a clear distinction between those who serve God and those who who do not. t will radiate from our personality, speech, and behavior. Therefore, we should strive to apply the Bible's direction on our life. We can not live a double life. God knows those who belong to him.

    Exodus 30:16
    And you shall take the atonement money of the children of Israel, and shall appoint it for the service of the tabernacle of meeting; that it may be a memorial unto the children of Israel before the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.

    @Michael C... verse 6 speaks volumes
  • Michael C.
    Answering Galatians 2:20: The second greatest commandment; after loving the LORD our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength; is to love our neighbor as ourselves. When the King sits upon His throne, and all are gathered before Him for eternal judgment; it is how we cared for His poor and needy, His sick and strangers and imprisoned, that will set us either on His right hand, or His left.
  • Michael C.
    v 8: Abraham gave one tenth of the spoils to Melchizedek, but took not so much as a shoelace from the king of Sodom; for he had lift up his hand to the LORD. Rendering to the LORD the beginning of our strength, is a sign of the grace of Christ in our heart; which is shown by love. It is better for the Lord's servants to pay their own way, than to give occasion to the adversaries to speak evil.
  • Michael C.
    BSP; I like verse 16 also! The one thing the devil and his seed can't stand, is our election of God. Its interesting how when we start to speak of wisdom and righteousness and judgment, the hostility rears up its head and strikes like a viper! The Law of our God is in our heart; none of our steps shall slide: but they that seek our souls to destroy them, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
