Summary of Malachi:
The Book of Malachi was written by the Prophet Malachi and is the last book in the Old Testament of the Bible. We learn that the Jews despise the Lord and because of their hatred their own priests do not keep the covenants and even bring the people down in their wickedness. The importance of tithing and offerings are written as well as the importance of keeping family records and journals for genealogy. Finally in the last chapter of Malachi we learn that Elijah will come in the last days, before the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
In a vision by Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery on April 3, 1836 in the Kirtland Temple, Elijah CAME! Elijah restored the sealing power and gave Joseph Smith the keys of the final dispensation. With these keys the hearts of the fathers and children can be sealed together. Families can now be brought together forever through the sealing powers of the Temples of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which is the Restored Church of Jesus Christ.
