A prophetic exhortation told Israel to prepare for the revelation of the Lord’s glory at the arrival of Messiah. Scripture sees John the Baptist in this role (Mt 3:3; Mk 1:3; Lk 3:4–6; Jn 1:23). It likewise sees the future forerunner who is to be like Elijah preparing for Christ’s second coming (Mal 3:1; 4:5, 6).

”Twas the night before Thanksgiving, no turkey did I see, they were scared as a mouse, Oh where would they flee, but just as we, whose sin, we could not flee, Jesus came from the heavens you see, he took our bondage from sin from our lives, to help us to live for all eternity. Well maybe, just maybe, he’ll do the same for these birds, but if not, then we’ll be Thankful, for the sacrifice of the birds”. Seriously, we have much to give thanks, May you forget all the bad, and enjoy giving THANKS. GOD BLESS YOU ALL. HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING. LOVE YOU ALL, AND THANKS FOR LISTENING. 🙂
Note of explanation: The difference between a friend and brother is noted here. A true friend is a constant source of love, while a brother in one’s family may not be close, but is drawn near to help in trouble. Friends are closer than brothers because they are available all the time, not just in the crisis. Cf. 18:24.
