How is this great and dreadful day described in this same prophecy?


"For, behold, the day comes, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly,
shall be stubble: and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them
neither root nor branch." Verse 1.
NOTE - This day is yet future. It cannot be, therefore, that the work done by John the Baptist at
Christ's first advent is all that was contemplated in the prophecy concerning the sending of Elijah the
prophet. It must be that there is to be another and greater fulfillment of it, to precede Christ's second
advent, and to prepare, or "make ready," a people for that great event.
