The long and short of Micah’s first glorious vision of the church in the latter days is that She will always triumphantly rise above all others, following the pattern of her Bridegroom. And she will always have the resources of the Word of the Lord which thoroughly equips us for all of life and the PEACE that passes understanding. The vision is not something you have to ‘make’ a reality – it IS the reality of God’s remnant church! Therefore… Live in this truth!
Spiritual Presumption (Micah 3:9-12)
What does it mean to abuse the name of God? And what does it looks like on the opposite end when God’s name is activated?
True or False (Micah 3:5-8)
In the New Year we admit that there is no excuse for us, if we do not follow what the Lord prescribes. He will ever guide us and empower us by His Spirit. Are you ready?
Wolves in Shepherds clothing (Micah 3:1-4)
God’s warnings highlight God’s grace when taken seriously!
Christmas Plan, Plain Prophecy (Micah 5:2-6)
Micah tells us about God through the Shepherd King God will send and focuses on how He will be our Peace, and He will be our strength. Christmas tells us wonderful things about God but in surprisingly humble ways!
My Shepherd the Breaker (Micah 2:12-13)
Sing the dear Savior’s glorious fame, Who bears the Breaker’s wondrous name; Sweet name, and it be-comes him well, Who breaks down sin, guilt, death, and hell.
Do not Preach! (Micah 2:6-11)
hearing Jesus kills the idol of self and quickens our true identity!
Combating Covetousness (Micah 2:1-5)
The converse of devising evil on your beds, is designing good…planning your walk in the light of life. We are too passive in our Christianity. Not because we are afraid of works righteousness, that’s just our excuse, but because we lack intimacy with God and each other… So we default to selfishness and design our plans around self.
Paying the Vow of Thanks (Psalm 56:1-13)
Truly knowing God is for you turns fear into faith!
Try Tears! (Micah 1:8-16)
The full value of crying has likely not been discovered yet, but one thing I know is that Jesus adds deep meaning to the person of God – by being a savior who sobs. Micah reveals of weeping God too. One who sings a poetic lament of Love, Justice, and beautiful Redemption from the depths of woe. We need to understand God if we are going to have true Joy and fellowship with our creator.
