And a day of vindication by our God: The day of the L-rd in Malachi 3 and vindication are a part of the great, fearful day of the L-rd.
In Isaiah 51/22-23 G-d says “Thus said the Lord, your Lord, Your God who champions His people: Herewith I take from your hand The cup of reeling, The bowl, the cup of My wrath; You shall never drink it again. I will put it in the hands of your tormentors, Who have commanded you, “Get down, that we may walk over you”—So that you made your back like the ground, Like a street for passersby.”
The cup of G-d’s wrath has been passed to Christianity for His vindication. Those who worship a man and call him G-d and son of G-d. Those who believe G-d made a human sacrifice to mankind. A human sacrifice of His son for the forgiveness of sins. The G-d who forgives the sins of the Jewish people by speaking it to His prophets and having it written in scripture not once, but twice. The recurring theme of the Jewish Bible is exile, return, forgiveness and a new Temple. G-d is married to the Jewish people. He does not divorce and seek another.
When Jesus describes his cousin as John the Baptist he uses the very verse of Malachi 3/1 that says Elijah comes with the angel of the covenant which can only be the covenant of sin forgiveness for the Jewish people G-d declared in Jeremiah 31 for a time to come. There are no others to be brought in a time to come.
Jesus leaves out and omits the angel of the covenant of sin forgiveness for the Jewish people from the verse to fit the story he wanted everyone to believe. That he died for the sins of the Jewish people. If John the Baptist was Elijah as Jesus believed then Jesus believed they were already forgiven of their sins. And Jesus told no one. John for his part denied he was Elijah.
Isaiah Chapter 61
1The spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
Because the Lord has anointed me;
He has sent me as a herald of joy to the humble,
To bind up the wounded of heart,
To proclaim release to the captives,
Liberation to the imprisoned;
The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, Because the Lord has anointed me: This chapter of Isaiah can be interpreted in three ways to fit three men. Isaiah, Cyrus of Persia and Elijah, the teacher of righteousness of Malachi 3 described in Isaiah 53 as G-d’s righteous servant upon whom the spirit of G-d alights upon. I am that man. The L-rd G-d’s anointed is anointed by G-d not with oil but by the spirit of G-d alighting upon him.
He has sent me as a herald of joy to the humble: Isaiah brings joy with his prophecy of G-d for…
