In this brief Advent study, we look at how the prophet Malachi reminds us that Advent is not a time of preparation for the arrival of a baby, but that Advent is the time of preparation of the Lord God of Hosts inserting himself into human history. This Advent Lesson covers two (or four) weeks.
Malachi 1 (Advent 1)
When we read the Hebrew Scriptures, we should continuously look for Jesus Christ within them.
Malachi 2 (Advent 1)
See how Malachi looks forward towards the more perfect, faithful covenant of Christ Jesus.
Malachi 3 (Advent 2)
In both the fire of the refiner and in the soap of the fuller, God is making all things new. Rev. 21:5.
Malachi 4 (Advent 2)
The day of the Lord isn’t one of separating good and evil people but of separating the good and evil within a person.
