The book of Malachi. The whole nation is resisting God and withholding from Him. Still, God gives them the opportunity to repent and return to Him and regain His blessing. To this very day, Yahweh and the nation remain in a stalemate.

We became blind to His love for us Failing to honor Him in our worship His choices now offend us And our offerings now offend Him Our hearts refuse to take Him in So, we go through the motions For the appearance of respectability We are hypocrites Asking Him for His blessing While dishonoring His name We have turned back from following Him Our speech becomes ever more sinful Showing partiality in His instructions Showing lack of influence by the Spirit We are disillusioned Accusing Him of injustice Because the wicked are prospering While our own service to Him is unprofitable So, we withhold from Him And become more self-assertive Dealing treacherously with each other We are lacking spiritual kinship Yet, it's because of His justice We still have space to repent To return to Him and regain His blessing To avoid the curse and coming judgment He will send Elijah before that Day To break the stalemate
