Journal Through the Bible: Week 61 Wednesday

Micah 3:1-4:13

Does God issue any commands?

  • God commanded wicked judges and rulers to listen to what He had to say to them.
  • God commanded the heads of Israel and Judah that perverted justice to listen to Him.

Does God make any promises?

  • God would not hear the cries of the wicked judges and rulers when the type of calamity fell upon them like what they caused for others.
  • God would send darkness and shame upon the false prophets that led the people astray.
  • God said that Zion would be plowed as a field for the sake of the evil rulers, priests, and prophets
  • Judah would go into Babylon but a remnant would be delivered.
  • The Lord would consecrate their gains.

Does this passage teach anything about Jesus?

  • The prophets, priests, and kings were supposed to be types of Christ. These evil rulers, prophets, and priests were not righteous examples but were evil liars. 
  • Jesus is the King that rules forever on Mount Zion.

Does this passage teach anything about yet-future events?

  • It specifically states in 4:1-2 that in the last days that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains and be exalted above all the hills, and people shall flow into it from many nations in order to learn of the LORD. Revelation confirms this.
  • Nations will be judged and peace will be established. Swords will be beaten into plowshares and spears will be beaten into pruning hooks. War shall end. Every person will rest safely under his trees and among his vines.
  • Remnants of God's people will be gathered. God will rule over them in Mount Zion forever.
