Malachi 1:8 & Haggai 2 11:15
Malachi 1 6:7 (partial quote of line 6)
“saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name? Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the Lord is contemptible.”
Iv’e gotten this kind of passage more then once. Like the rule of Haggai where the soiled garment or offering is purposely being used by apostates to try and defile their sheep. It is a great act of defiance and sin.
The LORD admonishes them to consider that his standard of holiness has existed since before any temple was ever built.
Iv’e prayed and encourage you to pray that: May people being effected unawares by this kind of evil act be held blameless and be cleansed in the name of Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ.
Haggai 2 11:15
“Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying, If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No. Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean. Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the Lord; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean. And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the Lord:”
God sees the nation he’s talking about as defiled by their willful works. He sees the works of all and knows the sincere, the righteous and the just from the evil, the wicked and the double minded.
The separation of the Goats ad Sheep is nearing since the kingdom of God is it hand. Those wicked and evil trying to hide “in the skins in the sheep they have spiritual attacked” will soon discover their evil ways have always been known to God almighty.
