The Book of Malachi
Malachi Prophecy on Elijah and John the Baptist Truth
John the Baptist and Elijah Prophecy Explained
So glad you could join us for the conclusion of our study of The Book
of Malachi. We've seen a spectrum of God's emotions written in the
words of Malachi, and he concludes his prophecy with some closing
words from the Lord. First, some words or warning for the wicked,
comfort for the righteous, and encouragement for everybody. At the
end, the Lord reveals a sign to look for, at the approach of the End
Malachi, Chapter 4
1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven;
and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble:
and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts,
that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of
righteousness [Jesus!] arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall
go forth [continue on], and grow up as calves of the stall
3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be
ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this,
saith the Lord of hosts.
4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I
commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the
coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the
children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come
and smite the earth with a curse.
Malachi Prophecy on Elijah and John the Baptist Facts
John the Baptist and Elijah Prophecy Mystery
Now, we're gonna take a look ahead into the Gospels for a moment and
see something very interesting. John the Baptist was the son of
Zacharias and an Angel appeared to him before John was conceived and
told him this about John:
16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the
Lord their God.
17 And he shall go before Him [Jesus] in the spirit and
power of Elias [Elijah], to turn the hearts of the fathers to the
children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make
ready a people prepared for the Lord.
And now, a little tidbit of information about a person's spirit.
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit
shall return to God who gave it.
Malachi Prophecy on Elijah and John the Baptist Vow
John the Baptist and Elijah Prophecy Journey
This is how a person can have the spirit of another person. God can
put the same spirit in different people, and John had the spirit
of Elijah. You can have the spirit of a person, without
actually being that person.
In fact ... There are two spirits that stand before the Lord that God
puts into humans to do His will:
Here is what Jesus said about John the Baptist:
Matthew 11:10, 13-14
10 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send
my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
14 And if ye will receive it, this is Elias [Elijah],
which was for to come.

John the Baptist and Elijah Prophecy Promise
And this is what John said about Himself:
19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent
priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?
20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am
not the Christ.
21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias
[Elijah]? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet?
And he answered, No.
22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give
an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the
wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet
He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make
straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaiah.
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of
the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Now, here are two different versions, one from Matthew, and one from
Mark, of what Jesus said to Peter, James and John after the
transfiguration, when Moses and Elijah appeared in the mountain and
talked with Jesus.
9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged
them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until
the Son of man be risen again from the dead.
10 And His disciples asked Him, saying, Why then say the
scribes that Elias must first come?
11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias [Elijah] truly shall first come, and restore all
12 But I say unto you, That Elias [Elijah] is come
already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever
Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
13 Then the disciples understood that He spake unto them
of John the Baptist.
9 And as they came down from the mountain, He charged them
that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son
of man were risen from the dead.
10 And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning
one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.
11 And they asked Him, saying, Why say the scribes that
Elias must first come?
12 And He answered and told them,
Elias [Elijah] verily cometh first, and restoreth all things;
and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many
things, and be set at nought.
13 But I say unto you, That Elias [Elijah] is indeed
come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it
is written of him.
Malachi Prophecy on Elijah and John the Baptist End
John the Baptist and Elijah Prophecy Conclusion
There's no question that the spirit of Elijah was in John the
Baptist. But it sure sounds like the message that Malachi is relaying
to us, is that there's yet another appearance of Elijah to come. How
do you know? Two things. Remember, God said, Watch, I will send you
Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful
day of the LORD.
That would be Jesus' second visit, not His first. And, it says that
he will restore all things, reconciling fathers with their children
and vice versa. That certainly hasn't happened yet either. So, it
looks like this prophecy is yet to be fulfilled and is a sign that we
should look for.
