Discussion for Micah 1

  • BSP
    Verse 4 shows the immense amount of power that Jehovah God has. Imagine something as solid and stable as a mountain melting like candle wax because of the intensity of God's burning anger.
  • A disciple
    "For the transgression of Jacob is all this, and for the sins of the house of Israel." If it be so with the Chosen Nation and the House that is called by the LORD's Name; shall it not be the same with those who have been grafted in, when they do the same things? In the world of the beginning it was the apostasy and sin of the "sons of God" that CAUSED the whole world to be filled with corruption!
  • A disciple
    "..I will pour down the stones thereof into the valley, and I will discover the foundations thereof: and all the graven images thereof shall be beaten to pieces, and all the hires thereof shall be burned with the fire, and all the idols thereof will I lay desolate.." In turning away from all hearing of the Spirit of truth and refusing instruction shall the foundations be discovered and overthrown.

    Micah written at the same time as Isaiah. This prophet wrote to both houses, Israel and Judah. Israel scattered and make up the Christian Nations today and as you see that if you love Christ as a Nation you are blessed. When it speaks of the threatening of God it is speaking of what will happen to evil on earth, burned off. 7th trump. Those that waited for the true Christ are in good standing.
