27(Jesus said:) This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. Luke 7/27 Holy Bible KJV
1Behold, 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. Malachi 3/1 Holy Bible KJV
1Behold, I am sending My messenger to clear the way before Me, and the Lord whom you seek shall come to His Temple suddenly. As for the angel of the covenant that you desire, he is already coming. Malachi 3/1 Tanakh JPS 1985.
22(Jesus said:) Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. John 4/22 Holy Bible KJV
31See, a time is coming—declares the Lord—when I will make a new covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah. 32It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers, when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, a covenant which they broke, though I espoused them—declares the Lord. 33But such is the covenant I will make with the House of Israel after these days—declares the Lord: I will put My Teaching into their inmost being and inscribe it upon their hearts. Then I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34No longer will they need to teach one another and say to one another, “Heed the Lord“; for all of them, from the least of them to the greatest, shall heed Me—declares the Lord.
For I will forgive their iniquities,
And remember their sins no more. Jeremiah 31/34 Tanakh JPS 1985.
38See, a time is coming—declares the Lord—when the city shall be rebuilt for the Lord from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate; 39and the measuring line shall go straight out to the Gareb Hill, and then turn toward Goah. 40And the entire Valley of the Corpses and Ashes, and all the fields as far as the Wadi Kidron, and the corner of the Horse Gate on the east, shall be holy to the Lord. They shall never again be uprooted or overthrown. Jeremiah 31/38-40 Tanakh JPS 1985.
24He shall reconcile parents with children and children with their parents, so that, when I come, I do not strike the whole land with utter destruction.
Lo, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before
the coming of the awesome, fearful day of the Lord. Malachi 3/24 Tanakh JPS 1985.
Isaiah 53 is a description of Elijah. I am that man. I am Elijah. I am the herald of the time of the new covenant of G-d’s forgiveness of the sins and iniquities of the Jewish people declared by G-d for a time to come in Jeremiah 31. It is this time. A time for G-d to redeem the Jewish people now that Jacob has returned to the land of Israel. A time to rebuild the Temple of G-d in Jerusalem.
In the New Testament Jesus tells his followers that John the Baptist is Elijah. Jesus uses the book of Malachi to describe John the Baptist as the messenger Elijah with the very verse that references the covenant of sin forgiveness for the Jewish people and omits it.
Jesus does not teach of the new covenant that comes with Elijah and yet says salvation is of the Jews. John as Elijah never delivers the message of the covenant of sin forgiveness of the Jewish people.
History tells the world that John the Baptist was not Elijah. The prophecy of the time to come of sin forgiveness provides that after the time of the new covenant the Jewish people will never be uprooted from Israel again.
Rome destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple and the Jewish people were exiled after the death of Jesus and his cousin John the Baptist.
Jesus knew the verse of Malachi to describe Elijah and he knew the covenant that came with him was salvation of the Jewish people; the forgiveness of the sins of the Jewish people to be heralded by the return of Elijah before the awesome, fearful day of the L-rd.
Elijah returns in the end times and the L-rd returns to His Temple quickly. When it is rebuilt. The L-rd was in His Temple in the days of Jesus and John the Baptist.
The end times.
The end of the times of the uprooting of the Jewish people from the land of Israel.
