Malachi (Program #3) – Jehovah’s Dealing with the Sons of Jacob

Malachi 4:6 tells us, “And he will turn the heart of the fathers to the children and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a curse.” This verse talks about the Lord’s warning about the day of His coming.

In other words, it is the condition of the people of God and their service to God as priests and in their living as God’s people before Him is what is central and crucial in the coming of the Lord Jesus the first time.
