Nuggets of Truth from Malachi
by Ronald W Robey
 
The last Book in the Old Testament section of our Bible holds many precious nuggets of truth that so many people today never realized. They do not realize these nuggets are in Malachi for two reasons,..
 
1. Their Pastor’s do not tell them these nuggets of truth are in Malachi.
2. They themselves do not study the Bible as they should, but instead allow their Pastor’s to teach them falsely.
 
Let us look at just a few of the nuggets we can find in the pages of the Book of Malachi, shall we?
 
a) The storehouse Malachi is speaking of is attached to the Temple in Jerusalem.
 
b) My local New Covenant Church is not the storehouse Malachi was speaking of.
 
c) Malachi is not saying to tithe your monetary income to God’s House.
 
d) Malachi was speaking to a people living under the Mosaic/Levitic Law.
 
e) Malachi could not have been speaking of any other kind of tithe than that which was required by Mosaic/Levitic Law, i.e.; a tithe of agricultural crops, flocks and herds.
 
f) Malachi 1:6; & 2:1 reveal that Malachi was speaking to the corrupt Priest’s in Malachi 3:6-12.
 
g) The tithes and offerings had been stolen by the Priest’s,… not by the congregation.
 
h) When Pastor’s use Malachi to teach a monetary tithe, they are guilty of handling the word of God deceitfully.
 
i) The Priest’s of Israel were guilty of despising God’s name because they exchanged the best animals for lame and blind animals
 
j) Pastor’s are guilty of despising God’s name because they have exchanged His commanded agricultural tithes for monetary tithes.
 
k) In doing things their own way instead of God’s way, the Priest’s of Israel were robbing God of His authority in their lives.
 
l) In doing things their own way instead of God’s way, the Priest’s of God had robbed the nation of Israel of God’s blessing.
 
m) In teaching their own way instead of God’s way, Pastor’s today are guilty of robbing God of His authority in their lives.
 
n) In teaching their own way instead of God’s way, Pastor’s today are guilty of robbing God of His authority in the lives of their congregations.
 
o) In doing things their own way instead of God’s way, Pastor’s are guilty of robbing their congregations of God’s blessing.
 
p) When Malachi promised that God would open the windows of Heaven, Malachi was speaking clouds giving rain to the land of Israel so that plants could grow
 
q) The devourer that Malachi was speaking of was the locust.
 
There are many, many more precious and wonderful nuggets written within the four chapters of the Book of Malachi. I encourage you to take time to study this Book and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal them to you.
