Will A Man Rob God?
1:1 The burden of the word of the Lord to Israel by Malachi.
2 I have loved you, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the Lord: yet I loved Jacob,
3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness (604 B.C.).
4 Whereas Edom saith, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places; thus saith the Lord of hosts, They shall build, but I will throw down (604 B.C.); and they shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the Lord hath indignation for ever.
5 And your (lunar) eyes shall see, and ye shall say, The Lord will be magnified from the border of Israel.
6 A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father (Ophiuchus), where is mine honour? and if I (Ophiuchus) be a master, where is my fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O (Gemini) priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?
7 Ye offer (red radius) polluted (solar) bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the Lord is contemptible.
8 And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy (Ophiuchus) governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the Lord of hosts.
9 And now, I pray you, beseech God that he will be gracious unto us: this hath been by your means: will he regard your persons? saith the Lord of hosts.
10 Who is there even among you that would shut the (solar golden) doors for nought (for free -- no solar gold coin)? neither do ye kindle (solar) fire on mine altar for nought (for free -- no solar gold coin). I have no pleasure in you, saith the Lord of hosts, neither will I accept an (solar gold coin) offering at your hand.
11 For from the (solar golden) rising of the sun (above the red radius line horizon) even unto the going down of the same (360° later) my name shall be great among the (Gemini) Gentiles; and in every place (red radius stick) incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure (solar gold) offering: for my name shall be great among the (Gemini) heathen, saith the Lord of hosts.
12 But ye have profaned it, in that ye say, The table of the Lord is polluted; and the fruit thereof, even his meat, is contemptible.
13 Ye said also, Behold, what a weariness is it! and ye have snuffed at it, saith the Lord of hosts; and ye brought that which was (red radius line) torn, and the (red radius cane Canis Major) lame, and the sick; thus ye brought an offering: should I accept this of your hand? saith the Lord.
14 But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and (red radius line) voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the Lord of hosts, and my name is dreadful among the (Gemini) heathen.
2 If ye will not (lunar ear) hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the Lord of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.
3 Behold, I will corrupt your (solar and lunar) seed, and spread (red radius line) dung (from Ursa Minor) upon your (Gemini) faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.
4 And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the Lord of hosts.
5 My covenant was with him (Ophiuchus) of life and peace (Nu. 3:41,44) (Nu.25:10-13) (1445 B.C.); and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name.
6 The (red radius) law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he (Ophiuchus) walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.
7 For the (Gemini) priest's lips should (red radius line) keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts.
8 But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the Lord of hosts.
9 Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the (Gemini) people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.
10 Have we (Gemini) not all one father (Ophiuchus)? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our (Gemini) fathers?
11 Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the Lord which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god.
12 The Lord will cut off (descendants of) the (Ophiuchus) man that doeth this, the (Gemini) master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering unto the Lord of hosts.
13 And this have ye done again, covering the altar of the Lord with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand.
14 Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth (Gemini), against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy (Gemini) companion, and the wife of thy covenant.
15 And did not he make one (solar halves make one whole)? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly (solar) seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.
16 For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth (black dagger crescent) violence with his (white lunar) garment, saith the Lord of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.
17 Ye have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet ye (red radius line) say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye (red radius line) say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?
2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's (solar) fire, and like fullers' (lunar) soap (2026 A.D.):
3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of (lunar) silver: and he shall purify the (Gemini) sons of Levi, and purge them as (solar) gold and (lunar) silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an (solar) offering in righteousness.
4 Then shall the offering of (Gemini) Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, and as in former years.
5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the (Gemini) sorcerers, and against the (Gemini) adulterers, and against (Gemini) false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages (don't pay the gold coin), the widow (third tithe), and the fatherless (third tithe), and that turn aside the stranger from his right (third tithe), and fear not me, saith the Lord of hosts.
6 For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye (Gemini) sons of Jacob are not consumed.
7 Even from the days of your (Gemini) fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?
8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In (first, second and third) tithes and offerings.
9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring ye all the (solar golden coin) tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the (lunar gibbous) windows of heaven, and (red radius line) pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
11 And I will rebuke the (Scorpio) devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the (solar and lunar) fruits of your ground; neither shall your (red radius) vine cast her (solar and lunar) fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.
12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts.
13 Your words have been stout against me, saith the Lord. Yet ye (red radius line) say, What have we (Gemini) spoken so much against thee?
14 Ye have (red radius line) said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts?
15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.
16 Then they (Gemini) that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and (lunar ear) heard it, and a (lunar white open) book of remembrance was written before him for them (Gemini and Ophiuchus) that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.
17 And they (Gemini) shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
18 Then shall ye return (with me at the second coming), and discern between the righteous (solar calves) and the wicked (lunar stubble), between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his (red radius) wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as (Taurus) calves of the stall.
3 And ye shall (Ophiuchus) tread down the (lunar crescent) wicked; for they shall be (lunar white and black) ashes under the soles of your (Ophiuchus) feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.
4 Remember ye the law of (Ophiuchus) Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all (Gemini) Israel (1446 B.C.), with the statutes and judgments.
5 Behold, I will send you (Ophiuchus or Hercules) Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord (before 2026 A.D.by 230° months or 19 years -- 2007) :
6 And he shall turn the heart of the (Gemini) fathers to the (Gemini) children, and the heart of the (Gemini) children to their (Gemini) fathers, lest I come and (red radius rod) smite the earth with a curse.
