Malachi was the last prophet of the Old Testament era. How does he both end the Old Testament story and point forward to its conclusion?
Malachi the Book: The Last of the Minor Prophets
Malachi the Man: The Last of the Prophets
God Finishes His Story: Mark 1
Mark 1; Hosea 11:1; Exodus 4:22; Isaiah 9:1-2; Isaiah 9:6-7; 1 John 1:1-3
Abraham Kuyper: “But ‘To Be Near unto God’ in the midst of busy avocations yields its sweetest blessedness when it is cultivated in the face of sin and the world, as an oasis in the desert of life. And they whom the world has tried in most cruel ways to draw away from God have achieved highest honors and blessings. In spite of obstacles and worldly opposition they continued to have trysts with God, Jacob at Peniel, Moses in Horeb, David when Shimei cursed him, Paul when the people rose in uproar against him. In the heat of conflict ‘To Be Near unto God’ is blessed.”
