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.


Discussion for Malachi 4:2

  • Priyanka for verse 2
    AMEN "LORD""I TRUST IN MY SAVIOR " HIS TIMING IS PERFECT..........AMEN FATHER..........THANKS FOR EVERYTHING..
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 2
    The Sun of righteousness is a metaphor for Son of God. Just as the sun gives light, heat, and life, so the Son of God is light to all that believe in Him, and gives life to our souls. Christ when He was born, shined light into a dark world, and gave heat to Mary as she looked upon the babe in the manger. Christ gives healing to all who will by faith receive Him as their Savior, and will shine light into their soul, and banish the darkness of sin away. This healing continues even as we wait for Him to descend from heaven with the shout come up hither!!! to take His bride to heaven. May the Lord bless you, and keep you is my prayer till He comes again.
  • yes, why sun instead of son?
  • No, its just a simile to help understand how important Jesus is to our connection to God. But of course there are plenty other attempts by them to blur the word. Unfortunatly for them, thats about all they can achieve.

  • Nataleigh for verse 2
    Mal 4vs2 Why is it written the "Sun" instead of the Son... Is this a possible corruption by the Catholic's or Free Masons?
