About 100 years had passed since the return of the Jews to the Land. The city of Jerusalem and the second Temple had been built, but initial enthusiasm had worn off. Following a period of revival under Nehemiah (Neh 10:28-39), the people and priests had backslidden (see Backsliding or Drifting ) and become mechanical in their observance of the law. Though lax in their worship (Mal 1:7) and delinquent in their tithing (Mal 3:8), they could not understand why God was dissatisfied with them. Malachi rebuked the people for their neglect of the true worship of the Lord and called them to repentance (Mal 1:6; 3:7). Malachi used a question-and-answer method, there being no fewer than 23 questions in the book.

KEY WORDS/PHRASES - " But/yet you say" (Mal 1:2, 6, 7, 2:14, 2:17, 3:7, 3:8); Return ( repent ) (Mal 1:4, 3:7); Messenger (Mal 2:7, 3:1); Curse (Mal 1:14, 2:2, 3:9, 4:6); Blessing/blessed (Mal 2:2, 3:10, 3:12, 3:15). Test (Mal 3:10, 15). Day of the Lord ("the day") - Mal 3:2, 17, 4:1, 3, 5.

KEY/FAVORITE PASSAGES: "I have loved you" (Mal 1:2) Prophecy of 3 comings: (1) John the Baptist (Mal 3:1 (2)  Messiah (Mal 3:1 = First Coming; Second Coming = Mal 3:2 and Mal 4:2= "Sun of righteousness") (3) Elijah (Mal 4:5); "I the LORD do not change" ( Immutable ) (Mal 3:6); "I hate divorce" (Mal 2:16), "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse..." (Mal 3:10) "I have loved Jacob, but I have hated Esau." (Mal 1:2,3).

David M Levy- Malachi Messenger of Rebuke and Renewal: Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry - 1992 OR
Logos

Irving Jensen: "The main subjects of Malachi’s message were the love of God, the sin of the priests and people, judgment for sin, and blessing for righteousness. One cannot help but observe that the Gospel of God has been the same message for sinners of all generations....The most notable feature of this book is its repeated pattern of discourse. Three steps are involved (example is shown): Affirmation (charge or accusation): "You are robbing Me” (Mal 3:8). Interrogation (introduced by "you say”): "But you say, ‘How have we robbed Thee?’ ” (Mal 3:8). Refutation (answer to the question): "In tithes and contributions” (Mal 3:8). The common repeated phrase in these discourses is "you say.” It appears eight times: Mal 1:2, 6, 7; 2:14, 17; 3:7, 8, 13. Another feature of Malachi’s message is his strong emphasis on the Law of God (read Mal 4:4). Also, the book surpasses all other prophetic books in the proportion of verses spoken by the Lord to Israel (forty-seven out of the total of fifty-five)." (Jensen's Survey of the Old Testament)

Ray Stedman on the Theme of Malachi: "It is most suggestive that this last book of our Old Testament centers around the theme of a messenger of God and a prediction of the coming of another messenger. In this, therefore, we have a direct tie between Malachi and the New Testament. (Mal 3:1)  "Behold, I send my messenger [in Hebrew that would be "Behold, I send Malachi"] to prepare the way before me" {Mal 3:1a} And as you discover in the book of Matthew, that messenger was John the Baptist. He came to prepare the way of the Lord and to announce the coming of the second messenger from God. That second messenger is here in this prophecy in the next phrase: "and the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to his temple; the Messenger of the covenant" {Mal 3:1} It was the work of the Lord Jesus on the closing night of his ministry to take wine and bread with his disciples and holding the cup up to say, "This is my blood of the [new] covenant." (Mt 26:28) The messenger of the covenant is the Lord Jesus himself...This entire book is a series of responses on the part of the people to the challenges of God. Seven times you will find them saying, "How? How does this happen? Prove it." As we go through them you can see how they reveal the state of this people's heart. Here is an outgoing God -- and God is always this way, pouring out love -- but here is a callous people who have become so indifferent and so unresponsive to God that in perfect sincerity they can say, "We don't see this. What do you mean? Why do you say these things to us?" Throughout the book, this is the theme.

John Piper summarizes Malachi - The Israelites had returned from the Babylonian exile. Jerusalem had been rebuilt, and the temple restored. But the people had not learned there lesson from the exile. They had grown skeptical of God's love (Mal 1:2), careless in worship (Mal 1:7), indifferent to the truth (Mal 2:6, 7), disobedient to the covenant (Mal 2:10), faithless in their marriages (Mal 2:15; 3:5), and stingy in their offerings (Mal 3:8). To this carnal and rebellious people God sent his messenger (Malachi means "my messenger"), and the first message he put on his lips was, "I have loved you, says the Lord!"...

The great temptation for Israel in the Old Testament and for the church of Christ today is to forget that we are pilgrims not natives in this world.

The temptation is to let the Lord's delay make us settle into the world and become passive as we wait; to forget that we are aliens and exiles, sojourners, strangers on the earth, seeking another homeland, desiring and yearning for a better country (Heb. 11:13-16).

The Meaning and Message of the Book: And now, what is the special purpose, the central message, the key thought, of the book? We need not make any close analysis to find this. If we mentally place ourselves in the ring of Malachi's first audience, and read through the book at speaking pace, letting it speak to us as though it were the living voice of the prophet himself ringing in our ears, we simply cannot miss seeing that from beginning to end this little book is AN APPEAL - a powerful, passionate, pleading appeal - an appeal to repent of sin and to return to God - an appeal accompanied by rich promise if the people respond, and by stern warning if they refuse. Read the little book through again, and get into the eager, urgent flow of the prophet's thoughts and words, and see if this is not so "If I be a Father, where is mine honour? and if he a Master, where is my fear?" (Mal 1:6); "I pray you, beseech God that He will be gracious unto us" (Mal 1:9); "Have we not all one Father? hath not one God created us? Why then do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?" (Mal 2:10); "Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from Mine ordinances, and have not kept them. RETURN UNTO ME, AND I WILL RETURN UNTO YOU, SAITH Jehovah OF HOSTS" (Mal 3:7); "BRING YE ALL THE TITHES INTO THE STOREHOUSE ...AND PROVE ME NOW HEREWITH, SAITH Jehovah OF HOSTS" (3:10); "REMEMBER (GIVE HEED AGAIN TO) THE LAW OF MOSES ...WHICH I COMMANDED" (Mal 4:4). Now we need not try to analyze this little book into five or six or seven parts which burden the mind to remember. The simple fact to note is that this APPEAL of Malachi quite naturally falls into TWO PARTS. In chapters 1 and 2 the appeal is made in view of the present sin of the nation. In chapters 3 and 4 it is in view of the coming "Day of Jehovah."

 

THE BOOK OF MALACHI

"BEHOLD, HE SHALL COME ...BUT"

 

APPEAL (A) - IN VIEW OF THE PRESENT SIN (Malachi 1:1-2).
JEHOVAH THE SPEAKER: the priests are appealed to (Malachi 1:6-2:9).
MALACHI THE SPEAKER: the people are appealed to (Malachi 2:10-17).


APPEAL (B) - IN VIEW OF THE COMING "DAY" (Malachi 3:3-4).
THE DAY WILL JUDGE THE GUILTY (Malachi 3:1-6)
therefore appeal (Malachi 3:7-12).


THE DAY WILL BLESS THE GODLY (Malachi 3:13-4:3)
therefore appeal (Malachi 4:4-6).

Disciple's Study Bible: "The Book of Malachi is a reminder of how God's people allowed the worldly thinking of their day instead of their reverence for God to determine their behavior. It does matter if the people of God do not truly fear God and magnify His name. God despises those who do not honor Him with the best sacrifice, who refuse to tithe, who divorce and marry unbelievers, who question His love and justice, and who wonder if it is worth it to fear God and serve Him. God has a book of remembrance; He knows those who honor His name and will make them His own and pour out His love on them...The Book of Malachi challenges the people of God to take a fresh look at the way they are thinking about God and at the underlying motives behind their religious activity by emphasizing four doctrines: (1) God is a great King Who loves His people and deserves their respect and honor. (2) The people of God demonstrate true reverence for God in worship and in marriage relationships. (3) Spiritual leaders have a responsibility to instruct the people of God in God's ways. 4. God will one day send the "Messenger of the covenant'' (Messiah) (Mal 3:1) to judge those who do not honor Him and bless those who magnify His name....The Book of Malachi touches on issues which are significant to our own situation in the church today. Malachi asks us: (1) to take a careful look at our concept of God and evaluate if we truly reverence Him as King in our lives; (2) to honor God with the best that we have to give in worship and in giving our tithes; (3) to confess where we have failed to magnify His name and return to Him in humility"

OVERVIEW of MALACHI from William Orr ( Keys to Malachi )
1. STATISTICS: Writer, Malachi (name means "My Messenger") was a contemporary of Nehemiah; he prophesied against the same abuses Nehemiah described. Time, 435-425 B.C.; key word, a curse; key thought, the love of GOD in spite of the sins of His people; key verses, 3:16, 17. Though linked with Haggai and Zechariah as a post-exilic prophet, he ministered about 100 years later.

2. THEME: Malachi's prophecy was interwoven with Nehemiah's history. Both labored to rebuild moral life of the people as well as the walls of Jerusalem. When Nehemiah returned to Babylon for a period of time Malachi ministered to the people concerning their sins and moral abuses. He looked beyond to the coming day of the LORD. The last word in the Old Testament is "curse." It remains for the New Testament to bring blessing.

3. OUTSTANDING TEACHINGS: Malachi predicts the coming of Elijah (Mal 4:5), partially fulfilled in John the Baptist (Mt 11:14). Since he did not usher in the "great and dreadful day of the LORD" at that time the prediction has a second fulfillment in the future. Possibly, he may be one of the two witnesses in Revelation 11:3- note . ( Who are the Two Witnesses?) The matter of withholding tithes and offerings is treated as robbery (Mal 3:8-15). The Mosaic Law pronounced the tithe as "belonging" to the LORD. Here the people were selfishly using it for other things. The essential message of Malachi is an epitome of the entire Old Testament. GOD rebukes corruption and promises deliverance and blessing on obedience. The viewpoint is that of the authority of the present law, but also of the riches of grace which GOD has in store for the age of blessing.

4. KEY TO UNDERSTANDING: Take a broad look at Malachi. It is the same old story of sin and unrighteousness. Mankind has not changed in all these years. But turn around and look the other way. There is coming a day of light when the Sun of Righteousness will arise. Thank GOD there is also a New Testament!

Malachi Commentary Paul Apple

Malachi Sermon Notes - Recommended Steven Cole

Malachi Commentary - but be very discerning as he replaces Israel with the church writing " God permanently removed the "kingdom" from Israel, and gave it to the church" (page 42). However see Jehovah's inviolable, immutable promise (Josh 23:14) to Israel in Je 31:35, 36, 37 (cp Lk 22:30 - where Israel is clearly Israel! See also Ro 11:13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27 28, 29, 30- notes . See discussion of Gal 6:16 - Israel of God )

Edward B Pusey
Commentary on Malachi
The Minor Prophets
(originally published 1860)
General Introduction

James Rosscup writes " This work originally appeared in 1860. The present publication is set up in two columns to the page with the text of the Authorized Version reproduced at the top. Scripture references, Hebrew words, and other citations are relegated to the bottom of the page. The work is detailed and analytical in nature. Introduction, background and explanation of the Hebrew are quite helpful. Pusey holds to the grammatical-historical type of interpretation until he gets into sections dealing with the future of Israel, and here Israel becomes the church in the amillennial vein."

When Love Grows Old - Malachi

The 400 Years between the Old and New Testaments

Richard Stock
Commentary upon the Prophecy of Malachi
 

Spurgeon comments: Contains a stock of knowledge, and more than a sufficient stock of quotations from the fathers. Torshell printed the book fifteen years after Stock’s death, and finding it to be written for a popular audience only, he added an examination of the original and a few notes in a more learned style, to make a complete commentary. The two authors hare thus composed the work upon Malachi.
