Malachi 3

“See, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. Then the Lord you seek will suddenly come to His temple, the Messenger of the covenant you desire—see, He is coming,” says the Lord of Hosts. But who can endure the day of His coming? And who will be able to stand when He appears? For He will be like a refiner’s fire and like cleansing lye. He will be like a refiner and purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver. Then they will present offerings to the Lord in righteousness. And the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will please the Lord as in days of old and years gone by.” Malachi 3:1-4

Who is this messenger? No one can stand? Is this reference to an earthquake? How will he refine people? By exposing the truth. Afterward they will offer sacrifices just like ancient times. But why? Isn’t Jesus sacrifice sufficient? Yes, but remember there was more than one sacrifice. All the sacrifices of the law must have their fulfillment for complete wholeness. Jesus was the Bull sin offering.
