To summarize this power packed verse

Malachi 4:3 (biblehub)

Ye shall tread down the wicked . They who were once oppressed and overborne by the powers of wickedness shall now rise superior to all hindrances, and themselves tread down the wicked as the ashes under their feet, to which the fire of judgment shall reduce them. In the day which I am preparing.
 Quoting: b4its2l8


And to summarize verses 1-3

Malachi is addressing “the great and terrible day of the Lord”. He teaches about the coming judgment when God will set them ablaze in His holy anger and how those that fear him will take part in this judging.

This will be also be true during millennial reign of Jesus - the saints will be the judges.
 Quoting: b4its2l8


He reminds them that the commandments he gave to Moses was for all of Israel:

Malachi 4:4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
 Quoting: b4its2l8


Malachi chapter 4 begins with a scenario of frightening judgements in the last days, and ends with 2 very interesting verses.

the first:

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord
 Quoting: b4its2l8


the second:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers

 Quoting: b4its2l8



At this point - it's difficult to say how Elijah will accomplish mending the children's and father's hearts:

Luke 1:17
And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

Was John the Baptist really Elijah reincarnated?

Small excerpt:

Proof that this John the Baptist was not Elijah reincarnated comes from John himself. In the first chapter of John the Apostle’s gospel, John the Baptist identifies himself as the messenger of Isaiah 40:3, not as the Elijah of Malachi 3:1. John the Baptist even goes so far as to specifically deny that he was Elijah (John 1:19–23)...

There may be another 'end times' John the Baptist who once again prepares the way for the second coming of Jesus:

In John’s gospel, John the Baptist denies being Elijah. The delegation that asked him about his identity was thinking of end-times figures who were expected at the close of history and at the beginning of the messianic kingdom. But John’s work was preliminary to that. He is not the Elijah who appears at the end of history, but the “greater Elijah” who is the Messiah’s forerunner, coming in the spirit and power of that ancient prophet.

Why must childrens heart be turned to father?

Small excerpt:

Elijah’s needed influence to turn, reconcile, restore, and even plant promises in the hearts of fathers and children presupposes that, at some point or another, the familial relationship between generations would be broken, lost, or otherwise compromised. As Jesus prophesied, “the love of many shall wax cold” (Matthew 24:12). Alan J. Hawkins, Clifford J. Rhoades and David C. Dollahite have argued that in the past two hundred years, industrialization, urbanization, and an emphasis on individual freedom have led to a “significant turning of paternal hearts away from their children.”

Whereas a predominant “agricultural and rural setting” once allowed many fathers and mothers to be “intimately involved in the daily lives of their children,” the rise of factories and industrialized professions has led parents to reduce time spent with children and family members.7 Moreover, “[w]hen the recent data on divorce and nonmarital childbearing are added to this portrait, we see fathers as increasingly on the periphery of children’s lives.”

This unfortunate trend has only been furthered along by the Western world’s increased emphasis on individualism. This self-centered philosophy triumphs the freedom and desires of the individual over the obligations and duties that accompany familial relationships. Yet, after “having freed themselves from the bonds that selfless caring for others necessarily brings, people may find themselves so disconnected from familial community and institutional relationships that their unfettered self-fulfillment feels like desperate loneliness.”...

More from the above article:

The Spirit of Elijah can be seen as a subtle but powerful counteractive influence against forces that are currently threatening family relationships.12 Modern family research, for instance, demonstrates that the majority of today’s fathers now believe that caring for their children’s physical and emotional needs is just as important as providing financial security.13 The introduction to one recent study on fathers explains,

We have endeavored to accurately portray the desire and commitment of today’s fathers to play an important role as parents and family members, not simply as financial providers. When discussing the changes we observe, we have often been asked, “Is this all a Millennial thing?” Are the changing attitudes about fatherhood the result of a generational shift that is underway?14

Certainly not every family development of the modern age is healthy, but the increasing concern for parental interaction and influence among family members is encouraging....

This person takes a completely different approach to the question - who are the 2 witnesses:

The Two Olive Trees and Two Witnesses, however, seem to be representative of the pure, invisible Church as seen from heaven. Here the invisible, Spirit-filled Church is reduced to its most vital component of Witness to the Christ - its most vital function upon earth! So the Olive Trees are the Two Witnesses, first foreshadowed by the ministries of Elijah and Elisha and then initially realized under the New Covenant by John the Baptist and Jesus, but now continuing to be realized wherever Christians preach the gospel! So, in a real sense, we are all part of the mission of the Two Witnesses! It should be seen at once that this is a wholly biblical approach which does not cut Revelation loose from the rest of God's Word - which should not happen.

Once we can see that Revelation 11 is set in the age of the Church's worldwide mission, we can see that we do not necessarily need to posit any future specific individuals yet to arrive on the world scene. As specific individuals, John the Baptist and Jesus have already come and gone, yet those of us who go out and witness with the gospel continue to wear their mantle, continuing the witness of the Church - Luke 10: 1-2, Acts 1: 8. A few commentators agree that Revelation needs to be 'earthed' on the rest of God's Word and uphold the principle for a while, but then appear to suddenly cast aside the principle, indulging in all kinds of flights of fancy! But we should be cautious! This is the inspired Word of God which must be treated with respect - read the warning of Revelation 22: 18-19!...

From the above article:

"As specific individuals, John the Baptist and Jesus have already come and gone, yet those of us who go out and witness with the gospel continue to wear their mantle, continuing the witness of the Church"

Just as Elisha received the mantle from Elijah - we who witness with the gospel are carrying the mantle of John the Baptist and Jesus...

Jesus made the greatest sacrifice anyone could for another person.

Along with that sacrifice he made us witnesses to the gospel.

Nevertheless, whatever we care to do with that is up to us - because God gave us a free will...

Or, Could he be both John the Baptist of ancient times and also Elijah in the spirit as one of the 2 witnesses?
 Quoting: b4its2l8


This person takes a completely different approach to the question - who are the 2 witnesses:

The Two Olive Trees and Two Witnesses, however, seem to be representative of the pure, invisible Church as seen from heaven. Here the invisible, Spirit-filled Church is reduced to its most vital component of Witness to the Christ - its most vital function upon earth! So the Olive Trees are the Two Witnesses, first foreshadowed by the ministries of Elijah and Elisha and then initially realized under the New Covenant by John the Baptist and Jesus, but now continuing to be realized wherever Christians preach the gospel! So, in a real sense, we are all part of the mission of the Two Witnesses! It should be seen at once that this is a wholly biblical approach which does not cut Revelation loose from the rest of God's Word - which should not happen.

Once we can see that Revelation 11 is set in the age of the Church's worldwide mission, we can see that we do not necessarily need to posit any future specific individuals yet to arrive on the world scene. As specific individuals, John the Baptist and Jesus have already come and gone, yet those of us who go out and witness with the gospel continue to wear their mantle, continuing the witness of the Church - Luke 10: 1-2, Acts 1: 8. A few commentators agree that Revelation needs to be 'earthed' on the rest of God's Word and uphold the principle for a while, but then appear to suddenly cast aside the principle, indulging in all kinds of flights of fancy! But we should be cautious! This is the inspired Word of God which must be treated with respect - read the warning of Revelation 22: 18-19!...

From got questions:

What is the gospel?

Small excerpt:

Answer: The word gospel literally means “good news” and occurs 93 times in the Bible, exclusively in the New Testament. In Greek, it is the word euaggelion, from which we get our English words evangelist, evangel, and evangelical. The gospel is, broadly speaking, the whole of Scripture; more narrowly, the gospel is the good news concerning Christ and the way of salvation.

The key to understanding the gospel is to know why it’s good news. To do that, we must start with the bad news. The Old Testament Law was given to Israel during the time of Moses (Deuteronomy 5:1). The Law can be thought of as a measuring stick, and sin is anything that falls short of “perfect” according to that standard.

The righteous requirement of the Law is so stringent that no human being could possibly follow it perfectly, in letter or in spirit. Despite our “goodness” or “badness” relative to each other, we are all in the same spiritual boat—we have sinned, and the punishment for sin is death, i.e. separation from God, the source of life (Romans 3:23). In order for us to go to heaven, God’s dwelling place and the realm of life and light, sin must be somehow removed or paid for. The Law established the fact that cleansing from sin can only happen through the bloody sacrifice of an innocent life (Hebrews 9:22).

We know a lot about Elijah - but who is Enoch?

Wiki:

According to the Book of Genesis, Enoch (/ˈiːnək/; Hebrew: חֲנוֹך‎; Ḥanōḵ) was a son of Cain, and father of Irad. After Cain arrived in the Land of Nod, to which he was evicted by the Lord as his punishment for murdering his brother Abel, his wife became pregnant and bore Cain's first child, whom he named Enoch.

Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son” (John 3:17–18).

God has given a doomed world good news: the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

The Two Witnesses:

In my book series, I go with Enoch and Elijah; but no one knows for sure except God. However, the Two Witnesses will cause a bad day for a whole lot of folk. They are to be given Divine power to thwart their enemies, and their enemies will be the people in the last days who begin to actually worship a world leader, a leader that the Bible refers to as the anti-Christ and the Beast...

It should be noted that the gospel received from the 2 witnesses is a gospel from God himself:

Rev 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

Rev 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

We know a lot about Elijah - but who is Enoch?

Wiki:

According to the Book of Genesis, Enoch (/ˈiːnək/; Hebrew: חֲנוֹך‎; Ḥanōḵ) was a son of Cain, and father of Irad. After Cain arrived in the Land of Nod, to which he was evicted by the Lord as his punishment for murdering his brother Abel, his wife became pregnant and bore Cain's first child, whom he named Enoch.

Enoch had a rare personal friendship with God:

This article sheds some light on that friendship:

Friendship With God - A Look at the Life of Enoch

Excerpt:

Near the beginning of biblical history, we find a man known for friendship with God. We do not know much about the life of Enoch, but we do know that “after he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked faithfully with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters” (Gen. 5:22). It seems that, at the age of 65, when Enoch’s son Methuselah was born, Enoch experienced a personal revival. From then on, in his life of 365 years, he walked faithfully with God...

More from thew above article:

He was a family man, with a wife and children and responsibilities. Yet he learned to cultivate intimacy with God in the midst of daily life. As a result, in the space of three verses, the fact that Enoch walked faithfully is mentioned twice. This repetition is not by accident.
