Wesley's Notes for Micah 1:3


1:3 The Lord - He comes forth as a judge, to hear, determine, and punish. His place - Heaven, the place of his glorious throne. Come down - Shew, by the effects of his power, justice, and wisdom, that he is more eminently present there. Tread upon - Trample under foot all that is high, excellent, and matter of your glorying.

    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.

    Misty it means God sent a judgment down on the ones that were doing evil.God destroys things that come against his word and teachings..

    I 'm no authority on the Bible, but my answer to Misty 's question about God bringing evil down to the gate of Jerusalem is this. There was much evil in the city. God 's patience and long suffering was not without His limits. To put it into today 's English, "When God had enough,He took action. " We, as God 's creations, need to remember that we reap what we sow.
  • I came accross this verse and it is saying evil came down from the Lord How can the Lord have evil come from him Im very confused and need an answer
  • Ndubisi for verse 5
    The sin of jecob and sameria could be traced to worsipping idol, it is against the will of GOD as HE told them,when u take over all this land thou shall not bow befor their gods but they disobeyed.HOSEA 9vs1 was refering to spiritual woredom from people of GOD which can easily stir up the anger of GOD.sin can be inherited as it is seen from 1kings14, jeroboam did that which was evil,in VS8 bible said,I tore the kingdom away from my servant David and gave it to you but u have not been like my servant DAVID who kept commands and brought disaster to his family,Even jehoboam,Abijah inhereted the evil doing until ASa came with inspiration for change by distroying the idols.It could be fanatic if we on our time do not SEEK for change that elude our people.

    God can use anything around when he want to talk to his people.We are lucky because He gave us his only son to die for us"his name be Praised".What Micah predicts its also happening nowadays.What God says shall come to pass "LORD HAVE MERCY UPON US"i cry everyday because no one is righteous on earth,indeed we were saved by his Grace.
