Matthew 3 Pt.1 Prepare The Way of The Lord!

How is it that it was prophesied that Elijah must come first before the great and terrible day of the LORD (See Mal.4:4-6)? How and in what way is John the Baptist the Elijah that the Scriptures foretold?

There had been a silence of 400 years from the voice of the last prophet of the Old Testament, Malachi, until the beginning of the ministry of John the Baptist in the New Testament. But John was to prepare people, who thought they were already prepared, to get ready for the Day of The LORD.

What on earth would attract people into the wilderness to hear a preacher preach a non “seeker-friendly” message? Clearly it was God who was drawing people to John so that they could confess their sins and be baptised into this new community of believers, who were ready for the Kingdom of God!
