TruthVid's 100 Proofs that the Israelites were White, Part 38
In our last presentation in this series we began to discuss the admonitions of a corrupted priesthood in the words of the prophet Malachi, and again we should note how that corresponds with the warnings of Peter and Jude, that a certain caste of intruders and infiltrators had corrupted the assemblies and doctrines of the people of God in ancient times. They also warned that they would continue to do so in the Christian era. As we have also recently discussed, both Paul of Tarsus and the apostle John had described those same infiltrators in different terms, even labeling them as Satan and as Antichrists. Now, in keeping with this same theme, we are going to continue our discussion of the prophecy of Malachi and the corruption of the priesthood for which he had admonished the priests of his own time several centuries before the ministry of Christ. Doing that we may see that Malachi prophesied concerning the very circumstances in Judaea of which Christ had spoken, for which He condemned His adversaries and of which the apostles of Christ had written. As we shall also see, some of these prophecies were fulfilled quite explicitly during the ministry of Christ.
51) Malachi and the corrupted priesthood, Part 2
Once again, many of my notes here this evening are condensed from parts 2 and 3 of my early 2017 commentary on the prophet Malachi, which were titled The Corrupted Priesthood and Universalism Rebuked. Last week we discussed Malachi chapter 1, and now we will discuss chapter 2 in respect of this same topic, the corrupted priesthood. Once we see how the priesthood was corrupted, we must once again acknowledge the racial message of the Scripture, which leads to the conclusion that the Israelites were White. This will not be an entire commentary, which is far too long for our purposes here.
We have already given the historical background necessary to understand the words of the prophet, how Jacob, speaking of the people collectively, had greater concern for Esau than for himself, how the priests had become contemptible and how Yahweh God would no longer accept their sacrifices, how they have operated in their priesthood for their own gain, just as Christ had condemned the priests of His Own time. We discussed the conversions of the Edomites to Judaism as many as 160 years before the start of the ministry of Christ, and how even many of the priests were also Edomites. However the race-mixing fornication perpetrated by the priests had actually started long before that, in the days of both Nehemiah and later Ezra, and although those men made many admonishments, the correction never lasted long.
