Greetings Brethren:

Will those that don't know Jehovah God be healed? Is healing related to eternal life? Is healing spiritual and physical? What is the ultimate healing that believers strive and look to the Hills for? Is it just another rant (this is what our enemies whom we love often say about the FreedomJournal) that if you don't know Jehovah God you know very little?

Peace and Love,

Carl Patton a slave of Jehovah God and a willing servant of the people writing for the FreedomJournal June 29, 2001 in the year of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.




In the name of Jehovah God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.

Malachi means my messenger. He brought a message from Jehovah God to the priests and the people. This Book is most often used to justify a tithe of money (Malachi 3:8-10)). However, the tithe was never money. The tithe was a part of rituals and sacrifices under the Old Law. These offerings and sacrifices consisted of livestock, gains and crops. Therefore why do many (most) Preaches today make the false and misleading statements about tithes and offerings? For the record it is a high crime against Jehovah and Jehovah's people to teach that God commanded (commands) all believers to pay a tithe (tax) to the church.

Meanwhile, we see the Book of Malachi forming a bridge between the Old Testament and New Testament. Throughout this Book there is a message of hope and the possibility of forgiveness.

Malachi 4:2. "But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall."

The Gospel of Christ will bring healing. Here we see the comparison of Christ to the warm and healing rays of the sun. Therefore those that make it to the kingdom of Christ will be blessed with great spiritual strength. Therefore as the Day of Judgment comes the wicked will experience the wrath of God while those that obey and love God will be blessed.

Malachi offers messages of hope as the Old Testament ends. God controls the future and everything will be made right for those who trust God with their lives.

Related Scripture: David's Last Words

2 Samuel 23:4. "A cloudless day after a refreshing rain is used to compare the glory of God.

Isaiah 35:6-8. Straws in the desert and the highway to holiness. The days after the judgment are noted in this chapter. In the final kingdom, God will destroy all evil and establish his justice.

Malachi as an inspired writer reveals a great prophecy for those who have accepted the Laws of God. The Divine Plan is revealed in the coming Messiah who will return to Judge the good and the evil.

4:5. "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:"

Elijah was one of the greatest prophets noted in the Bible. (See 1 Kings 17- 2 Kings 2). As the Old Testament ends and with the death of Malachi the voices of God's prophets are silent for 400 years. Meanwhile Malachi foretells of a great prophet like the previous Elijah to prepare the way for the Messiah.

This prophet was John the Baptist (See Matthew 17:10-13, Luke 1:17). He came to prepare the people's hearts for Jesus by urging them to repent of their sins. While no other law was to be given before the New Age would come John the Baptist would come to speak and prepare the Jews for the New Law.

Dreadful day in this passage means that the kingdom of Christ would be hard on sinners. However the righteous would be respected and blessed.

Related Scripture:

Matthew 11:14. "And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come."

John the Baptist was not a resurrected Elias (Elijah). But he took on Elijah's prophetic role. He boldly confronted sin and directed the people to God.

Mark 9:11-13.

9:11. "And they asked him, saying, why say the scribes that Elias must first come?"

When Jesus spoke of Elias (Elijah) he had indeed come. He was talking about John The Baptist (Matthew 17:11-13). Meanwhile, the Disciple of Jesus could not conceive of the eternal kingdom of God. They had read the Old Testament prophecies but they thought of the Messiah as a great king like David who would come to overthrow their enemy Rome.

Although the wanted relief from their present problems they did not understand the role of Christ. It is also noted that deliverance from sin is far more important than relief from physical suffering and the political oppression of the Romans. Thus in order to receive healing we must look beyond what God can do for us here and now.
