Wesley's Notes for Malachi 4:2


4:2 The sun of righteousness - Christ, who is fitly compared to the sun, being the fountain of light, and vital heat to his church. And of mercy and benignity; for the Hebrew word imports both. With healing - His beams shall bring health and strength, with delight and joy, safety and security. Go forth - Go out of Jerusalem, before the fatal siege. Grow up - In strength, vigour and spiritual stature. Of the stall - Where they are safe guarded and well ordered.

    This is a future event of the end, and it is happening before our eyes. You notice the fathers being a lower case f. Our Father is always a higher case F. The evil will be burnt with fervent heat, reduced to ashes under the soles of the feet of the righteous who love the Lord.

    I am reminded of Eccl. 12:13 "The end of the matter, all has been heard. Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgement, with every thing whether good or evil". (ESV)
  • John Grays
    Jesus did come as Elijah, as in His hour of need He had a visitation by Moses and Elijah. Jesus came to correct the past and set forth a new thing for God's people because of the disorder Satan caused in the leadership of the church. We have yet to understand what God's Will truly is.....

  • Wm Cantelon
    John the Baptist was the voice in the wilderness making straight and smooth the way of the Lord. Elijah has already come and was received without honor as Jesus Christ was despised and rejected as a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. He was esteemed smitten of God and afflicted. Now is apostasy. John did no miracle but everything he said was true. An adulterous generation seeks after signs.
