Messianic Jewish is close to Messianic Christian, but the Law of Moses is not required, and no one is looked down on if they do not feel led to be keeping it. It is great to be keeping the Moadim/Feasts of YHWH, though, as they foretell coming events (Col. 3:16-17 better in the KJV than the NIV, I haven't checked the Catholic Bibles)
I see Malachi 1:11 being fulfilled in the Millennium.
So what do you believe is the complete view of the Palestinian Christian community?
Several of the early church fathers saw Malachi 1:11 as fulfilled by holy communion, and by the incense of holy prayers. Such as Justin Martyr (110-165 AD), Bishop Ireneaus of Lyons (120-202 AD), and Bishop Cyprian and martyr of Carthage (200-268 AD).
Bishop Irenaeus writes, "Those who have become acquainted with the secondary consitutions of the apostles, are aware that the Lord instituted a new oblation in the new covenant, according to Malachi the prophet. For, *'from the rising of the sun even to the setting my name has been glorified among the Gentiles, and in every place incense is offered to my name, and a pure sacrifice."* (fragment xxxvii of his lost writings).
We have an early liturgy of the church attributed and inspired by St.Mark of the gospel:
"We offer this reasonable and bloodless sacrifice, which all nations, from the rising to the setting of the sun, from the north and the south, present to Thee, O Lord; for great is The name among all peoples, and all places are incense, sacrifice, and oblation offered to Thy holy name." (The Divine Liturgy of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist Mark, the Disciple of the Holy Peter, Apostolic Constitutions).
Notice, that the Jewish apostle, St. Mark, includes the direction of north and south in this prayer, eventhough these directions of north and south are not found in Mal. 1:11 (only east,west). Knowing about the feasts, Live for Him, you should know that during Sukkot the palm frond is waved with a blessing in the four directions of east, west, north and south.
In Blood Brothers, Elias Chacour gives a personal account of what happened to his village in Galilee which he and his family trace to the first century. They were driven out by the secular Zionists and scattered. Prior to the arrival of secular Zionism, these Melkite Christians were living peaceably with Orthodox Jews and Muslims. This is not the way of G-d to destroy a peaceable village who were serving Him. You can not imagine what this book and others recommended to me by a Jewish Christian did to my personal notions as a Christian for Zionism.
