Malachi 2:10 - 3:6 -  God's Covenant and God's Justice 

Malachi states that we are children of the same Creator God.  God chose to relate to His people by covenants.  There are 2 ways to break a covenant: 

1) Forcefully (Wilfully) as in “I refuse to do what we agreed upon” 

2) Forgetfully as in “Oh … did I break our agreement?”   

 

 

Evidence and Effects of Breaking Covenant 

a) Bad Judgement :  Mixed Marriages 

b) Bad Conscience : Divorce 

 

“You can only betray a friend, you can’t really betray an enemy”

 

 

Evidence of God’s Love -  God sends His Messenger to:  

Refine 

Rebuke 

Reaffirm  -  God’s Love that never changes
