Exploring the Book of Malachi with Tony Evans

 

Malachi is the final book of the Old Testament, and though we know very little about Malachi himself, his message is a powerful one.

Malachi is the in-your-face prophet, and he has one simple message: take God seriously. As he saw it, the priests of his day were playing religious games, going through the motions and leading the people with a casual approach to worship. So, he was called to confront God’s people with who God really is. When you understand who God is and how much He loves His people, you don’t treat Him casually.

God was, in fact, insulted by the sloppy worship of Malachi’s time. God’s people didn’t esteem Him as the great King that He is. Moreover, they were divorcing without cause because they didn’t take God’s covenant of marriage seriously, and they were robbing Him of the tithes due to Him.

As a result, things were falling apart. Locusts were even destroying the crops. Yet through it all, the people acted as if they’d done nothing wrong. The book of Malachi is a call to all of us to understand that while God is a loving Father, He should not be taken lightly. His kingdom demands our total allegiance.

Here’s a short video that highlights five key themes from the book of Malachi. May you be blessed by it!
