The coming of John the Baptist predicted in the Old Testemant

 Malachi is predicting the coming of John the Baptist before the Destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 A.D.

Malachi 4

 1For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

 2But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

 3And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.

 4Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.

 5Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

 6And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

  1. Days of the Lord in the Old Testament as a day of Judgement against the nations that were disobedient toward God.I don’t belive that he is refering to the day of Judgement at the Second Coming because John the Baptist already came,so the only day of the Lord that Malachi is refering to is the Destruction of Jerusalem by Titus in 70 A.D.
