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.

    I believe this passage is speaking of the Elijah as the fiery preacher John the Baptist. How many of us Christians would call people vipers? However, we need to remember that John the Baptist had the Holy Spirit in him while he was in the womb! Wow!!

    Comparing the different Bible versions, it is interesting to see which one is Inspired and which ones aren't, I.e "..in his wings..." vs "..in its wings...". Just like that, one word or sometimes, a letter at a time, is that wicked one constantly "as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:" Be vigilant and always test the spirits.

    Elijah has already come. He was John The Baptist: Matthew 17:11-13. And they done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him. Mark 9:11-13.

    "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:" As John the Baptist went before the face of the Lord, when He came as the Lamb of God; so will Elijah and Enoch be sent to preach to Israel just before the Second Coming of Christ. It will be the Time of Jacob's Trouble, but he shall be saved out of it! That is the Day which God has spoken of!

    Hello Saints,

    John, GOD's will is to be obedient to his word, have the conduct, and mind of LORD JESUS. If we behave like the lost, then their is no hope. The Jewish people are awaken, and I have faith that they to will all come around.
