The Book of Malachi
Workbook written by Linda A. Ratcliff, Th.D.

PDF: WORKBOOK

The prophet Malachi was the last of his kind. He spoke the message of the Lord to the nation of Israel as a whole, and there was no prophetic voice after him for nearly 400 years, until the arrival of John the Baptist.

The people of Israel had forsaken the faith of Abraham, and the Law of Moses. They had forgotten that their exile had been caused by their sinfulness. And what's worse, they were oblivious to their spiritual condition. But even though they were a wayward people, God still longed to open the windows of heaven for them. He wanted to pour out a blessing that was so large there would not be room enough to receive it (3:10). During Malachi's brief ministry, he clearly stated the sins of the people, and warned them that judgment was certain to come if they did not change.
