Sermons about Malachi
Israel's problem: They were “going through the motions” in their worship. God primarily demonstrates His love through material and physical blessings. God considers His spiritual blessings more valuable. “Love” and “hate” are used as terms of comparison. If God had not chosen Israel, God would have destroyed Israel. Focus on the blessings you have been given instead of complaining about those you don’t have.
Israel's problem: They were “going through the motions” in their worship. The emphasis of Malachi is on the faithful covenant keeping God throughout the ages. The people's feeling: How can you question us about keeping the covenant? External obedience always starts with a renewed heart commitment to Him.
This is the first installment in a new series through the book of Malachi.
Part 2 of The BIG Investments series, titled The Financial Investment. Pastor Rudy Bropleh uses scripture from Malachi 3:8-12 with emphasis on the fact that God wants to give guidance to us and there are 3 important points to gain: 1) We need to SOW ---bringing tithes and offerings to the storehouse (church). We should understand the 80:20 rule, keeping in mind that EVERYTHING belongs to God --1Chronicles 29 ----10% of gross goes to God; 10% is used to pay yourself; and 80% is used for daily living. When we follow the 80:20 rule...2) God will SUPPLY all of our needs; and 3) God will SUSTAIN us. Never turn your back on God because He keeps negative things away from us so that we can do well and live a good life!
