The Christian leader’s performance should be so distinctively positive that it demands an explanation. Read Malachi 1:6-14.
The book of Malachi is the last book in the Bible’s Old Testament. Malachi was a prophet to the people living in Judah and Jerusalem about 70 years after the return from the Babylonian exile and about 440 years before Christ was born. After Malachi spoke to the people for God there was a period of silence for over 400 years until John the Baptist came on the scene. Malachi prophesied during a period of corrupt priests, wicked practices, and compromised leaders. He called the leaders to account for ignoring God’s standards of excellence.
