This is the last prophecy in the Old Testament regarding the Messiah. Also the last prophetic book prior to his first Advent. After Malachi finished his ministry to captive Israel, God was silent for roughly 400 years. The chosen nation, being passed around from conquering empire to the next. Paganism slowly permeating its fragile tent. There was no rest, no peace, no freedom, no comforting words from God, not even a rebuke. And no hope.
We live in a society where science is not the enemy of faith; more like Target, Facebook and The Walking Dead.
Remembering the darkness of 9/11 on this day, sixteen years ago, but also the light and hope that impacted so many of us because of that horrendous moment in history.
There is never one season like the other. The Bible says there is a time for everything, which means some seasons will be exciting to experience, while others, not so much.
