Source: http://ift.tt/2FSfdgR Today: [Malachi 4] The Concluding Chapter of the Old Testament. In Malachi 4 the final prophet of the Old Testament era concludes his message, after which God falls silent for over 400 years, known as the inter-testamental period. In summing up his message, Malachi speaks of the eternality of hell for the wicked, and reward for those who seek out a life of faithfulness to God.
