    In this, the final full day of Advent, we read the closing words of the Old Testament, from the book of the prophet Malachi. These closing words, these final lines of the Old Testament are nothing short of astonishing. Terms like “riveting” and “stunning” also come to mind.While they ring with a promise, they also warn of great peril to those who do not lay hold of the promise. The words come forth almost like iron pellets. And though there is the way through, but it is only by being refined as through fire and by becoming fire.Consider the words:...

    “The Day Is Coming” (Malachi 4:1-6; 2 Thessalonians 3:6-13; Luke 21:5-28)“The Day Is Coming.” “The Day Is Surely Drawing Near.” What day am I talking about? Thanksgiving? No, nobody cares much about Thanksgiving anymore, except for eating turkey and watching football and getting a head start on . . . Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday, the big shopping day of the season--now that’s a day that lots of people get excited about! But no, that’s not the day I’m talking about. Oh, OK then, Christmas, that must be it. Only 37 shopping days left till Christmas! The...

    Malachy's Prophecies - The Last 10 Popes 1. The Burning Fire. PIUS X. 1903-1914. This Pope showed a burning passion for spiritual renewal in the Church. 2. Religion Laid Waste. BENEDICT XV. 1914-1922. During this Pope's reign saw Communism move into Russia where religious life was laid waste, and World War I with the death of millions of Christians who were carnage in Flanders Field and elsewhere. 3. Unshaken Faith. PIUS XI. 1922-1939. This Pope faced tremendous pressure from fascist and sinister powers in Germany and Italy, but he was an outspoken critic of Communism and Fascism which enraged Hitler....

    “For Behold, the Day Is Coming” (Malachi 4:1-6; Luke 21:5-36)“For Behold, the Day Is Coming,” says our Old Testament Reading this morning. And in the Holy Gospel, Jesus goes on to tell us more about that day--and the days leading up to it. What day are we talking about? When? What is going to happen when that day arrives? And what about those days leading up to it? What will they be like? And what does all this mean for us in the here and now? That’s where our lessons this morning are taking us. You see, it’s November. We’re...
  • Lionizing an Anti-war Activist's Suicide

    11/27/2006 7:55:34 AM PST · by Mobile Vulgus · 15 replies · 829+ views ^ | 11/28/06 | Warner Todd Huston
    A man poured gasoline on himself on November 3rd and on the side of the road on Chicago's Kennedy Expressway he lit himself on fire. It caused a traffic jam, but little else. In fact, no one even knew who the suicide was for several days until a friend of his got a letter sent him by the dead man just before his final day. And still, few cared. It turns out this was supposed to be some kind of anti-war statement akin to a Buddhist monk's self-immolation in Saigon during Vietnam. Sadly, this protester didn't seem to know that...

    MOBILE, Ala. - A medical team at the University of South Alabama's Children's & Women's Hospital have closely monitored the progress of a newborn who weighed only 10 ounces at birth on Feb. 15. His parents, Phillip and Monica Whitlock, said tiny Malachi Andreas Whitlock is so far holding his own. "I feel he's got 100 percent chance of survival," his father said. They said they chose the name Malachi because it's one of the smallest books of the Bible, and Malachi means "messenger of God." "He's so small, and he's sent a message to us of what love is,"...

    Connor Peterson, Laci Peterson—and Malachi INTRODUCTION The many articles about the tragedy of Connor Peterson and his mom Laci Peterson have brought to mind another murder of a baby boy. His name was Malachi. His story is below and has done a tremendous amount of good in battling the demonic industry of abortion. Though we will never see Baby Connor or know him in this life, he has touched the lives of millions around the world. Let’s pray that the death of Connor Peterson not be in vain, but that like Malachi-- “God intended it for good to accomplish what...
