The Treasured Possession of God

Malachi 3 talks about the last days and God's treasured possession.

Mal 3:17-18 
"They will be mine," says the LORD Almighty, "in the day when I make up my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as in compassion a man spares his son who serves him. And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.

The holy ones are his treasured possession. The spiritual are the treasure in his chest. Those that live their lives selflessly, compassionately and mercifully in service to God to help humanity. In ancient days those that were wicked were those that did not look after the earth. Those that transgressed the spiritual law were called wicked. 

The patience of the saints are sorely tested yet their rewards are beyond measure because they are the treasure in our heavenly Father's chest. Sometimes he shares his treasure with humanity when humanity are worthy of the treasure that he delivers. His treasure can also help to deliver humanity when humanity have the ears to hear and the eyes to see.

Malachi 3 also talks about the covenant and prophet malachi knew full well that it would be a covenant for the children of the world. We are currently working on a video to share the information about the covenant with you. There is a full commentary on Malachi 3 on the Eliakim blog as well if you're interested to ponder upon it deeply. 

As the Christ said "The Meek shall inherit the Earth". The meek have the humility to serve God and listen and do what he asks of us.

This posted at exactly 00.36 and the gematria value of 36 = Tzaddikim. The Rabbi states the following the about the Tzaddikim. 

Q: : I have heard that there are just 36 tzaddikim (righteous individuals) in the world. What about the rest of humanity?

A: There are 36 complete tzaddikim. However, there are many, many tzaddikim and good people, who, although they have not reached the lofty heights of the complete tzaddikim, are still considered righteous individuals. There is also the one tzaddik in every generation, who is likened to the Moses of that generation, and merits to receive the Shechinah every day. This tzaddik is the foundation of the world in his time. The simple Divine service of all of these tzaddikim, and of every person, brings G-d much Nachat Ruach (pleasure).[1]
