NAS Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day
December 14
Malachi 3:1
1 “Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord , whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the LORD of hosts.”
Read Malachi 3

*This is of course fulfilled by and with John the Baptist… Christ is the evidence of God’s unchangeable justice! John the Baptist revealed Jesus Christ: the God of Justice demanded by the logic of the Text and Texts, and this even lead John into death for speaking out to the sins of Antipas and his wife for their adultery. John always insisted, like all the great prophets, that sincere repentance was the only adequate preparation for the imminent advent, which of course so many missed with the first advent of Christ, and especially the Jews. Mostly the Jewish leadership. Indeed just think how many will miss the redemptive reality of the Second Advent of Christ!  Though the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is surely both for salvation and judgment, Heb. 9: 26-28.
