Journal Through the Bible: Week 61 Tuesday

Micah 1:1-2:13

Does God issue any commands?

  • God commanded everyone to listen while He made His case against Samaria and Jerusalem through the word given to Micah.
  • God commanded other cities and nations not to rejoice over Samaria's destruction.
  • God commanded the inhabitants of certain places (Lachish, Moresheth-gath, Mareshah) to complete certain tasks.

Does God make any promises?

  • Samaria would be razed.
  • All the idols of Samaria would be beaten to pieces.
  • God promised evil against the families that plotted to steal the inheritance of other Israelites. There were those who harmed others (like King Ahab's dealing with Naboth over his vineyard) thinking that God did not see them.

Does this passage teach anything about Jesus?

  • Jesus is the one who judges the evil and defends the defenseless poor, women, and children who cry to Him.

Does this passage teach anything about yet-future events?

  • The LORD will come down and tread upon the high places of the earth. There will be earthquakes that divide the mountains and send the water flooding. (This could have already happened in Israel's history, but it also will happen when Jesus physically comes to the earth in the future.
