The center of the book of Malachi is the healing Christ . This healing Christ is the Messenger of God, the Angel of the covenant, and the Desire of the Nations:
Christ being our healing is based upon His being the Sun of Righteousness.
In His first coming Christ was the dawning Sun to the dark age , but in His second coming Christ will return as the Sun of Righteousness in His kingdom.
This earth is filled by death and injustice, but if we have Christ as the Sun of Righteousness we have life and justice.
Also in His second coming, Christ will also be the Desire of the Nations. Christ is the One whom we desire.Day by day we desire Him to be our love,our humility.our meekness and our joy.But we need to realize that if we have this Christ we can experience the real joy that we desire.Real joy comes from Christ being our life, our virtues and our everything.
As the sun of Righteousness, Christ will come with healing in His wings. Today, many Pentecostal people practice what is called divine healing.Actually, Christ Himself is our healing.He is the Sun that heals us as it shines upon us.
In His first coming, the earth rejected Christ; therefore, the earth lacks His healing . But because we have received Him in a secret, hidden way, we receive His healing everyday. His healing causes us to have joy so that we forget our anger and anxiety.
We are sick from sin, death, and many deficiencies and imperfections. Only this healing Christ can make us whole. To be healed is to be saved. To be healed, to be saved, is to be made whole.
He will heal us, but we must give Him the freedom to use His wings to fly above us, around us, and through us.
In His first coming, Christ healed the degraded priesthood, but in His second coming, He will heal the remnant people of Israel. Then He will everything to the earth and to us. This healing Christ will come suddenly.
