The coming of Elijah (Mal 4:5-4:5)


I will send you

The prophet Elijah

Before the great day

Of Yahweh comes,

Before the terrible day

Of Yahweh comes.”

Yahweh, via Malachi, said that he was going to send the prophet Elijah before this great and terrible day of Yahweh would come.  For the New Testament followers of Jesus Christ, the question of Elijah was often asked about John the Baptist.
