July 24, 2022 - Micah 1-4

Micah had some harsh words for the people, especially the heads of the people, the rulers, the false prophets, and the seers. I was thinking about the connection of Micah’s message to this morning’s sermon from 1 Peter 2 on living under authority. God’s Word does not require us blindly to bow down before authorities. There are some bad, really bad, leaders out there. The people of Micah’s day, though, had no discernment or understanding. They could not read the times and act accordingly. They just “went along.”


What a contrast with those who know the Lord and bow to him. Micah assures, “In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s house will be established at the top of the mountains and will be raised above the hills. Peoples will stream to it, and many nations will come and say, ‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us about His ways so we may walk in His paths’” (4:1,2). Not in the ways of the world, but in the paths of God are we to walk.


Behold! the mountain of the Lord

in latter days shall rise

on mountain tops above the hills,

and draw the wondering eyes.


Among the nations he shall judge;

his judgments truth shall guide;

his scepter shall protect the just,

and quell the sinner’s pride. -- John Logan & Michael Bruce (18th century)
