Please explain what does grow up as calves in the stall mean as stated in Malachi 4:2?
and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. - Malachi 4:2b
The complete verse is:
I think that it means happiness and victory. For the calves who stay in stall is a real happiness when they go out and see the sunshine.
Analogous, for the people of God - who fear [God's] name - is a great happiness when the sun of righteousness shall rise and the healing in its wings.
The first verse from the chapter says:
We have here the scene of the final abolishment of the sin, of the sinners (branch) and of the Sattan (root).
The fire will clean up the Earth of any trace of the sin and the God's kingdom will be instaured on the New Earth. The saints will celebrate the victory of God and the war between God and Satan that will be finally finished.
calves released from the stall… in Jewish tradition, the Calves were sustenance for the lives of the people but also given as offerings. Looking at Romans 12 in the New Covenant passages it talks about being a living sacrifice. This passage I thought reflects this, as the healing comes, we are set free from our bondage and released to "frolic" under the grace and love of HaShem.
