Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

September 30 - Morning

The disciples asked him, “Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?”
Jesus replied, “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things. But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done
to him everything they wished. In the same way the
Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.”

- Matthew 17:10-12

The Return of Elijah    

Immediately after seeing Elijah and Jesus together on the Mount of Transfiguration (Mt. Hermon) the disciples ask Jesus about Malachi’s prophecy concerning the return of Elijah and the Jewish teachers' interpretation of that prophecy.

Jesus’ answer refers to two events in history:

  • One is future: “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things.”
  • The other has already occurred: “But I tell you, Elijah has already come.”

The coming of John the Baptist was the fulfillment of Malachi’s prophecy:

“I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes. And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.”
– Malachi 4:5,6

Notice the conditional clause in Malachi’s prophecy – Elijah will come and restore Jewish society
to a right heart before God, but if they do not respond, the land of Israel will be utterly destroyed.
This perfectly describes John the Baptist’s ministry,the lack of response by Israel to repentance,
and the Roman destruction that followed. The angel Gabriel introduces John’s ministry to John’s father Zechariah when Gabriel announced the conception of John:

“He (John) will go before him (God) in the spirit and power of Elijah.” - Luke 1:17

John the Baptist partially fulfilled Malachi’s prophecy, but the people rejected him and the Lord at
that time. This means Elijah will come again before the “great and dreadful day of the Lord”
(Malachi 4:5). Jesus indicates that this second time, “to be sure, Elijah comes and will restore
all things.” In the future Elijah will appear in history and this time Israel will respond with national repentance. At this point in history they will be restored to the Lord’s favor and history will once
again be drastically affected.

Paul writes the logical conclusion concerning the coming days of Elijah and the restoration of Israel:

“If their rejection means the reconciliation of the world (church age, evangelizing of Gentile world), what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead (resurrection, kingdom age)?" – Romans 11:15

  Christian Quote from Church History

“It is not our work to make them believe. That is the
work of the Spirit. Our work is to give them the Word of God. I cannot convert men; I can only proclaim the Gospel.”

– D.L. Moody





Something to Ponder??
Christianity is a documented, historical, written religion which has grown as that written word has reached the souls of more and more people.
Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Yeshu'ah (Hb) - Salvation (Eng) - The Hebrew word yeshu'ah means "salvation"
and "deliverance." The root word is yasha with the basic meaning of "to deliver."
can be translated "help," "victory," "prosperity" and means to be rescued
from danger or distress. This help or deliverance can come from people, fortified walls or
the Lord God. Israel received yeshu'ah out of both Egypt and sins. The New Testament
name of Jesus is based on this Old Testament word for salvation.

  An ossuary (stone box for human bones) from before 70 AD with the inscription "James, Son of Joseph, brother of Jesus" has been found (2002) in the Kidron Valley and validated as an authentic inscription. James was Jesus brother who was killed in 63 AD in Jerusalem.
Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I recognize the spiritual fact that since I am a man I, am in constant need of deliverance?
Even though I have been saved, I daily need the Lord's salvation for myself from the world
and from my sin nature. Today I will rejoice in God my Savior and I will look to him to
continue to deliver me today in both the spiritual and natural things.
