Spiritual apathy and indifference can creep up on us. In Malachi 's time blamed God. They called evil. good and good evil. God will send His messenger, first Elijah and then Jesus. God knows the hearts of men. In blaming God, the people of Malachi's time attempted to shift blame to God. If you ask for justice, you just might get it. We are the Royal priesthood now. There is great joy when we acknowledge God and humbly believe his word.
