Ch. iv, 2. Eph. v, 14. [Ch. iv. 5. 2 Pet. i, 19.

Matt, xi. 14;xvii. Ch : iv-5.

11, 12, After a period of nearly 4000 years,

" the testimony of Jesus, which is the spirit of prophecy,” in the divine oracles of the Old Testament, ceased in the predictions of Malachi. He terminated the illustrious succession of those “ holy men of God, who spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” He sealed up the roll of Old Testament prophecy, by proclaiming the sudden appearance of the Lord, whom the pious sought in his temple, preceded by his herald messenger, who should prepare

His
way

before Him. The fulfilment of these predictions, by the preaching of John the Baptist, the ministry and miracles of Jesus, during the existence of the temple, as recorded in the New Testament, proving Him to be the true Messiah, cannot be read by the pious without gratitude and joy. May every reader attend to these truths with faith and prayer, lest, like the unbelieving Jews, he perish neglecting so great salvation !
