Malachi

Malachi 3:16-18 The Remnant Are In A Book Of Remembrance.

The remnant were those who feared the LORD and meditated on His name, and they spoke to each other about this, and the LORD heard them, and has them in a book of remembrance (v. 16 Cf. Pss. 56:8; 66:16; Heb. 3:13). In this remnant the goal of the covenant would be fulfilled-the LORD would be their God and they His people. They would be the LORD’s jewels (or special treasure, v. 17 Cf. Ex. 19:5-6; Dt. 7:6; Is. 62:3), and He would spare them that they might serve Him (Cf. Ps. 103:13; Is. 43:21; I Pet. 2:9). To the remnant discernment would be restored, the discernment which recognizes that the remnant are those who serve God according to His word (v. 18 Cf. Ps. 58:10-11).
