How did Malachi become a prophet?

AnswerThere was never a person called Malachi. The Book of Malachi was written anonymously. probably in the early post-exilic period. Verses 3:1-4 refer to 'my messenger' (Hebrew: mal'aki) and it is this reference that gives the book its name: Malachi.

Answer:

The Bible doesn't go into great detail as to the history of the calling of all of its prophets as it does, say, for Moses. But, in all cases, they are "called by God."

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God..." (II Tim.3:16). The book of Malachi is scripture. So, God inspired Malachi to write.

2 Peter 1:21 -for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. [NKJV]

Answer:

In Malachi 1:1 the author calls the book "The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi. Any message (also called a burden or an oracle) delivered to Israel or Judah from the LORD was delivered by a prophet, therefore we know that Malachi was a messenger. Malachi means "by hand of the messenger", and there were 2 kinds of messengers- angels and prophets, and each is clearly identified as the deliverer of the message. Malachi is not an angel, so we know that he's a prophet.

Malachi, Malachias or Mal'achi, meaning "By Hand of the Messenger" was a Jewish prophet in the Hebrew Bible. Brother of Nathaniel and Josiah. Malachi was the writer of the Book of Malachi, the last book of the Neviim (prophets) section in the Jewish Tanakh. In the Christian Old Testament, the Prophetic Books are placed last, making Book of Malachi the last Old Testament book before the New Testament. The editors of the 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia implied that he prophesied after Haggai and Zechariah (Malachi 1:10; 3:1, 3:10) and speculated that he delivered his prophecies about 420 BC, after the second return of Nehemiah from Persia (Nehemiah 13:6), or possibly before his return, comparing Malachi 2:8 with Nehemiah 13:15; Malachi 2:10-16 with Nehemiah 13:23).

Malachi was the last of the prophets before the 400 silent years between the close of the Dispensation of the Prophets and the Dispensation of the Messiah.

Is Siddhartha a prophet or a messiah?

Neither. If you are thinking of this in the concept of a Abraham's religion (Christianity, Islam, or Judaism), in which a prophet or messiah is a spokesman or embodiment of God.

For Buddhist, The Buddha was an enlightened person who fully understood the world and how we are to live in it, in peace, harmony and without suffering. He is our teacher and mentor.

Hindus have adopted The Buddha as as avatar of Vishnu; that is, an embodiment of Vishnu, akin to how Jesus was the embodiment of the God of Abraham.

Buddha never claimed to be a God or taught of a God. He was asked by a follower before His death; if there is God and why He didn't teach of a God. He said 'I taught you, how not to suffer. So why do you need a God? If you learn my teachings, then you can become your own God'. He taught you that your God is within you. So therefore, all you need is Nirvana and perfect Dhamma. He saw man and women suffering over a God in his younger days. So He taught you, not to worry over these things. Because it will lead to a long road. He took for many years, before coming into enlightenment. When He was younger, He would ask to why there was suffering, death and hunger. It is said that He went to almost every Brahman to learn their teachings. He would ask them all as to why there was hunger, suffering and death. All said that is a part a life. So He wanted to teach man and woman, no matter who you are, no matter, rich or poor, not to suffer. Since women could not learn from Brahmans during his time.

What was the fate of most of the prophets?

Most of the prophets were rejected, and were not liked by the people.

Answer

I take it that you are referring to the prophets of the old and new testements? If this is so then they were fated to preach the gospel to all who would listen. However their altimate fate was to give their lives for what they believed in. John the Beloved was the only one spared, he was to spend the rest of his life on the isle of Patmos. It was while there that He was inspired to write the Book of Revelation.

What were Nostradamus prediction about India?

Well to be honest there is nothing much, there are lot of hoaxes u would find on net from Indira Gandhi to nuclear tests..but these are all un-ture and made up,

Yes it can be said all he did say was that people of the religon with the name sea ...that is Hinduism ..will fight Muslims and Muslims would be defeated ..basically indo-pak war....which has already happened 4 times ..and there is nothing much left for Pakistan to loose...and come on ..even Muslims are Indians too ...

so nothing left to say ...NOSTRADAMUS was a doper who got high ..and wrote some crazy sh*t ...while tripping on LSD...

If you would read and find a actual source you would come to know hardly any of his profecies have come true ...and his writings are so vague that they might seem to fit any particular incident ..

So cheers ..... pack ur bags to kick china's a**...
