According to Peter, the prophets anticipated two things: the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow. It was the “glories to follow” that began to be experienced by our fathers and mothers on the Day of Pentecost. And it is these same glories that the prophet Malachi anticipates throughout his book. So today we consider the glories that would follow the arrival of the great and dreadful day of the Lord, glories which we as the people of God now witness and experience.
