Malachi 3:1-4

Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness. Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.

Malachi 4:5-6

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

I was talking to someone today about the message they were telling me that John was not the messenger and that the messenger already came. I read them these verses and one in Matthew but they still said that it was not going to happen. The verses very clearly say what the messenger will do when he comes and what time he will come. He will come before the great and dreadful day (judgment day) and he will restore the sons of Levi (priesthood). This is happing today. God is sending his messenger and he is doing the things that the Lord promised he would do. Will you listen to the warning?
