Micah 3

And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know judgment?

Who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones;

Who also eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them; and they break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron.

Then shall they cry unto the Lord, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.

Thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.

Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them.

Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.

But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the Lord, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.

Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity.

10 They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.

11 The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the Lord, and say, Is not the Lord among us? none evil can come upon us.

12 Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.

  1. But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the Lord, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.
    Micah 3:8 KJV

    But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
    Acts 1:8 KJV

    …let the weak say, I am strong.
    Joel 3:10b KJV

    It’s time to quit hiding behind “I can’ts.” If we have the Holy Ghost, then the truth is that we can. We can be a witness. We can share the Gospel. We can even warn others of impending judgment. All we have to do is get over ourselves like Pastor taught. Stop giving in to fear and start opening our mouths.

    The Bible says that we can do all things through Christ, so the question is not “can we” but “will we.” Our excuses for why we can’t are nothing more than blasphemy; we are claiming that the Word of God is a lie. We are not the exception; His Word applied to even us. Therefore, we can if we will. We can witness no matter how shy we think we are. We can make witnessing are own daily way of telling the flesh “no.”

    The more we exercise the Power, the easier it will become and the more faith we will have to do even greater things. Get thee behind me, Satan! I am not timid; I am strong! I have the power, and I intend to use it, in Jesus’ name!!

  2. God is not a coat you only use him when you wanna . You can’t expect God to do great things when you are doing wrong . What’s wrong with you . You either gonna be for God or against God . But be prepared for the consequences. Rather Good or Bad. You listen to false prophets and complain saying well God said this and it didn’t happen . Well that’s because you listened to a false prophet. Be careful what you do. Your act can destroy a whole nation.

  3. Micah 3:8
    But me—I’m filled with God’s power,
    filled with God’s Spirit of justice and strength,
    Ready to confront Jacob’s crime
    and Israel’s sin.

    Thank you for a pastor who hears and preaches the true word of God. He is not afraid to confront sin and call it what it is. We need to continually pray for the pastor for the leaders of the church. It is not about gaining friends but about leading souls into the Kingdom of God . Truth hurts and it does not make one popular but if we are to lead as Jesus did we must speak and stand for the Word. Thank you to a Pastor who preaches and upholds truth and integrity even when it is not the most popular thing to do. Thank you for guiding us the right way so that we can be all God has called us to be.

  4. Listen to me, you leaders of Israel! You hate justice and twist all that is right. You are building Jerusalem on a foundation of murder and corruption. You rulers make decisions based on bribes; you priests teach God’s laws only for a price; you prophets won’t prophesy unless you are paid. Yet all of you claim to depend on the Lord . “No harm can come to us,” you say, “for the Lord is here among us.” Because of you, Mount Zion will be plowed like an open field; Jerusalem will be reduced to ruins! A thicket will grow on the heights where the Temple now stands.
    Micah 3:9‭-‬12 NLT
    Micah boldly proclaims judgement on the leadership of Jerusalem. He calls them out by the Spirit of God where his power comes from. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!

  5. 7 Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.
    8 But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the Lord, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin

    Spiritual Authority comes from obedience and submissiveness to those that are in charge of our souls. Pastor preached on Wednesday and one of the points he covered was being submissive to our people that are above us watching out for us. Israel baskets up many times where they would play around and mock God and then call on him when things got really bad which brought them to condemnation and a lack of authority and power that they would have possessed. Mike and knew that he was obedient and knew the power that was within him. If we understood what power we really had we walk a little differently and walk with you thority that God has given us. The Bible says that we have power to tread on the enemy and we have authority over spirits, but we have to walk with the Authority Under submission to our authority that God places over us

  6. Who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones;
    Micah 3:2 KJV
    You can’t love good and be with GOD
    Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the Lord God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.
    Amos 5:15 KJV

  7. Micah3: 4-5 (English Amp) Then will they cry to the Lord, but He will not answer them; He will even hide His face from them at that time, because they have made their deeds evil.[5] Thus says the Lord ; Concerning the false prophet’s who make My people err, when they have anything good to bite with their teeth they cry, Peace; and whoever gives them nothing to chew, against him they declare a sanctified war. Use God’s power the Holy Ghost tell the devil get behind the. Wash yourself clean, put away the evil of your doing from before God eyes! Learn to do right! Repent tell your flesh no . And go fourth with Jesus. God will fight for you. Hate the sin love the sinner, Pray that Turn around on get on the the right path with Jesus . In Jesus name I pray.

  8. 3:9 hear this, I pray to you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and Princes of the house Of Israel, that abhor judgment , and pervert all equity.

    They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.

    corrupt ! Yes, currupt thinking, corrupt ways, corrupt actions,corrupt motives….

  9. 6. It will be a dark night, too dark for you who lack vision, and it will be darkness for you who cannot divine.”The sun will go down on these so-called prophets, and the day will be black all around them.

    If your night is getting dark, turn on more Light….

    Psalm 119:105
    Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

    7. The seers will be in disgrace, and those who predict the future ashamed. They will keep their mouths shut because there will be no word from God.

    8. But that is not the case with me-I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the Eternal One, with God’s justice and might, To accuse Jacob of his crimes and the daughter of Israel of her wrongdoing. Voice

    Power! Filled with the Spirit.
    Power! Filled with the Spirit…

  10. This is what the LORD says: “you false prophets
    are leading my people stray! You promise peace
    for those who give you food, but you declare war
    on those who refuse to feed you.
    Micah 3:5 NLT

  11. His Spirit within me ‘to boldly declare!’

    But as for me, I am filled with power— with the Spirit of the Lord . I am filled with justice and strength to boldly declare Israel’s sin and rebellion.
    Micah 3:8 NLT
    There has been many times that i have locked eyes with people and not say a thing to them about the gospel of Christ. Where i have left the place with a sense of GUILT!! I know that i can speak for many in which they’ve done the same.
    My question to self this morning is:
    1.Where is the Spirit of GOD that is within?
    2. Where is your faith?
    3. Why fear?
    4. Have you been to busy for His KINGDOM?
    Jesus forgive me, for i have sinned.
    Today is a new day….Michelle don’t lose your focus!

    And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
    MARK 16:15 AMP

  12. When we don’t appear to receive an answer to our prayers, when things just don’t appear to be going our way, when the enemy tries to discourage, it’s important to remember what is spoken of God’s prophets: ‘truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.’ God’s silence does not mean that he does not care or is not able… it usually means he’s placed enough trust in us to do the right thing until his hand is truly required. All we have to do is continue until he does, just like the rest of our walk with God. He may speak directly, or he may speak through his prophets, but be assured he is aware and he is able!

    In those moments, it is perhaps appropriate to ask ourselves a question: Do we worry about the silence when all is going well? If it’s the silence that worries us, we should be pressing in the blessing as well as in the trials? If the silence is only noticed in the trial, that alone should send us a message that God’s blessings have become a distraction. Perhaps some portion of that struggle is getting us back in the habit of remaining in the yoke he’s placed upon us. It’s burden is described as being light and easy, but that doesn’t mean we’re supposed to set it aside when all is well. Plow those blessings right back into the kingdom of God and see what what our sowing will reap for his name!

  13. 6 Therefore you shall have night without vision, and you shall have darkness without divination, the sun shall go down on the prophets, and the day shall be dark for them. So the seers shall be ashamed, and the dividers smashed, indeed they shall all cover their lips, for their is no answer from God.

  14. 5 Thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.

    6 Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them.

    I give thanks unto the Lord EVERYDAY, for I have a Pastor that speaks TRUTH at all times and brings Men Of God that He knows will NOT lead us astray. We MUST PRAY FOR OUR LEADERS, that God will guide them and that they will harken to the Voice of Christ and NEVER depart from it in Jesus Name. For as we read God holds them responsible for the wrong doings of His people. Yes, both the children of Jacob, Israel, and Zion are being judged but the leaders those who are responsible for guiding His children are going to pay a high price. In the same way as parents we are responsible for our children, we are the ones that must teach them the ways of the Lord, for God entrusted us with them. We also will face judgement for not guiding our children in His word. May God help us as parents to do what it’s right unto our children in Jesus Name Amen

  15. God is a spirit and our relationship to him must be on a spiritual level not an intellectual assent. In verse 4, I see that the word is telling us that although we have a belief in God it does not entitle us to have favor with him, when we are not obedient to his commands.

  16. This is what the Lord says: “You false prophets are leading my people astray! You promise peace for those who give you food, but you declare war on those who refuse to feed you.
    Micah 3:5 NLT

    I am hearing more and more of the great falling away where many who are not rooted in sound doctrine will be turned from the truth of the Gospel. We must keep a watchful sober eye out so that we are not entertaining what is not truth.

  17. .

    5 Thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.
    6 Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them.
    7 Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.

  18. iLove the Kingdom

    7 Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.

    Whew, it is a bad place to be when you cannot hear the voice of God. The Words of the Lord created the universe and to have a famine of the Word of God is like a death sentence. We must “stir” up the gift of God and pray until we have a move of God

  19. Verse 8 MEV “But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the Lord, and
    with justice and might, to declare to Jacob his transgression and to Israel his sin.” It is time to stand and declare truth, without fear or timidness; but, boldly as the Lord is with us.

    Ephesians 6:19-20 AMP “And pray for me, that words may be given to me when I open my mouth, to proclaim boldly the mystery of the good news [of salvation], for which I am an ambassador in chains. And pray that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly and courageously, as I should.”

  20. 7 Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.

    8 But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the Lord, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.

    Even the wisest man can’t compare to the wisdom and knowledge of God. Even at our strongest we are nothing compared to God’s might. But through Jesus and the Holy Spirit dwelling in us, he give us power.

  21. “Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity. They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity. The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the Lord, and say, Is not the Lord among us? none evil can come upon us.”
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭3:9-11‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    This is why I like reading two versions. I’m posting the NLT version too so we can have two different perspectives.

    “Listen to me, you leaders of Israel! You hate justice and twist all that is right. You are building Jerusalem on a foundation of murder and corruption. You rulers make decisions based on bribes; you priests teach God’s laws only for a price; you prophets won’t prophesy unless you are paid. Yet all of you claim to depend on the Lord. “No harm can come to us,” you say, “for the Lord is here among us.””
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭3:9-11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    This mentality is NOT Kingdom minded!
    Kingdom teaching
    Kingdom preaching
    Kingdom prophesying
    When it’s all for the Kingdom, it’s not gonna matter about the money.
    I’m not talking about tithes and offerings that’s all biblical and can be backed up by scripture.

    I’m talking about the 56,000,000$ jet guy that was mentioned the other day.
    Jesus rode in on a donkey, I’m sure He dressed like the people and lived like the people. The treasure is blessing the people with the Word of God.
    The treasure is seeing the people’s eyes light up when they receive new revelation. The treasure is seeing someone receive a miracle.

    The Lord will bless you down the road as long as priorities are in check. It’s obvious if you’re in it for the Kingdom or not and I’m proud to say I’m apart of a church that’s in it for the Kingdom.

  22. 5-7 Here is God’s Message to the prophets,
    the preachers who lie to my people:
    “For as long as they’re well paid and well fed,
    the prophets preach, ‘Isn’t life wonderful! Peace to all!’
    But if you don’t pay up and jump on their bandwagon,
    their ‘God bless you’ turns into ‘God damn you.’
    Therefore, you’re going blind. You’ll see nothing.
    You’ll live in deep shadows and know nothing.
    The sun has set on the prophets.
    They’ve had their day; from now on it’s night.
    Visionaries will be confused,
    experts will be all mixed up.
    They’ll hide behind their reputations and make lame excuses
    to cover up their God-ignorance.”

    v.8 But me—I’m filled with God’s power,
    filled with God’s Spirit of justice and strength,
    Ready to confront Jacob’s crime
    and Israel’s sin.
    Isaiah 58:1 cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression and the house of Jacob their sins.

    Cry aloud….shew my people their transgression indicates that Isaiah was to shout against the sins of Israel and Judah. God further warns them that though they delight to seek me daily, they will be judged for making a mere show of their religion.

    Thank God for a Pastor who warns us and preaches the Truth.

  23. Then they will cry to the Lord , But He will not answer them; Instead, He will even hide His face from them at that time [withholding His mercy] Because they have practiced and tolerated and ignored evil acts.
    MICAH 3:4 AMP

    I am speechless over this verse but I’m still counting on Mercy.

    A.L.M.A.S.

  24. 4 Then shall they cry unto the Lord, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.

    Your actions truly do have an affect. You may not see the affect of your actions right away or even at all, yet the Lord sees and knows all. He will reward us depending upon our actions. We need to be living a life unto God, not with one toe in the world. Praise the Lord for He is mighty and righteous and holy! Praise the Lord for He is God! Praise the Lord!

  25. 8 But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the Lord, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.

    In verse 5 it mentioned false prophets. We have a choice of who to follow. Who will you choose to follow through to eternity? A false prophet who speaks flattery through destruction or the Lord, mighty who speaks truth and seeks to save the lost? I choose to walk in the Spirit and power of God; the same power that crushes the enemy, lives in me!

  26. 1 I said, “Listen, you leaders of Israel! You are supposed to know right from wrong,

    Yes, leaders are to know right from wrong. But our natural flesh easily tempts us. Its a spiritual warfare between good and evil. But through prayer daily and reading the Word, we stay strong spiritual, so when temptation comes, we’ll be able to resist it.

  27. MSG – “Listen, leaders of Jacob, leaders of Israel:
    Don’t you know anything of justice?
    Haters of good, lovers of evil:
    Isn’t justice in your job description?
    But you skin my people alive.
    You rip the meat off their bones.
    You break up the bones, chop the meat,
    and throw it in a pot for cannibal stew.”

    4 The time’s coming, though, when these same leaders
    will cry out for help to God, but he won’t listen.
    He’ll turn his face the other way
    because of their history of evil.

    As leaders we must be very careful that we stay on the correct path and that we lead others correctly. When people come to God, it is God who brings conviction into their lives to overcome the carnal ways they have lived. We must teach and train, and live by example in front of them. However, we must give them time to learn conviction and what it means, and allow God to give them their own personal revelation. If we try to clean them up to line up with our convictions, we might damage them and then when they run, God may not hear our cry for help.

    The same power of conviction that worked in us when we got saved, is still working today. Let God do His job, and we do our job of being a great example for them to follow.

  28. THY KINGDOM COME
    WARNING TO MINISTRY – CALL TO TRUTH

    5 Thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.

    My continual prayer is that JESUS will continue to order my steps and I believe that I am primarily responsible for this privilege. JESUS is TRUTH and where HE leads I must follow. What HE says I must say and what HIS WORD says, I must DO.

    It is my goal to continually hunger for and seek after the WORD of GOD. Yielding to a unsatisfied hunger for growth in knowledge and experience through the WORD of GOD. I seek to be a STUDENT of TRUTH. Gaining knowledge of JESUS every day.

    I am on a life process leading to eternal PEACE with JESUS and it is my desire, dream and destiny to lead as many people as possible with me to JESUS. To continue advancing on this life process, I must examine every decision with the WORD and SPIRIT of JESUS and I must ensure a TRUTH before I share it with others.

    In awe and respect for JESUS and HIS WORD we as ministers of the Gospel must examine, evaluate and educate ourselves in TRUTH that we do not make people err. This is a GREAT Responsibility that I approach with fear and reverence.

    I pray JESUS will convict those that make people err by the false teachings and doctrines and that they will come to repentance and knowledge of TRUTH.

    We must be busy about the Gospel of JESUS and sharing HIM with others, not only in WORD, but also in deed.

  29. Micah 3:4, “Then shall they cry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.”

    Isaiah 59:2 says, “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”

    It’s SIN that separates us from God,
    It’s SIN that causes God to hide his face from us.
    It’s Sin that causes God not to hear us.

  30. 10 You are building Jerusalem on a foundation of murder and corruption.

    The foundation matters.
    If we are building anything from legos to an actual house, it will only be as strong as the foundation. If it’s going to endure the hard times the foundation must be properly built.

    We as men and women of God cannot build our foundation on murder and corruption but on the solid rock.

    Matthew 7:24 “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. 26 But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. 27 When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”

  31. 4 Then shall they cry unto the Lord, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.

    Because people were willing to prophesy lies and people were willing to listen to them now judgement was pronounced against them. We must make sure as the mouthpiece of God that we are willing to obey the voice of God and only speak what he speaks.

  32. 11 The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the Lord, and say, Is not the Lord among us? none evil can come upon us.

    The leaders are double minded and James 1:8 says they are unstable in all their ways. They profess God and seek gain from the people and prophesy lies. It’s when they think they are above reproach or punishment from God that they find they are now in danger of judgement. Be humble to God, be submitted to godly authority in the Church and pray for our leaders.

  33. “I said, “Listen, you leaders of Israel! You are supposed to know right from wrong, but you are the very ones who hate good and love evil. You skin my people alive and tear the flesh from their bones.

    This is what the Lord says: “You false prophets are leading my people astray! You promise peace for those who give you food, but you declare war on those who refuse to feed you.

    But as for me, I am filled with power— with the Spirit of the Lord. I am filled with justice and strength to boldly declare Israel’s sin and rebellion.”
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭3:1-2, 5, 8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Every day we must wake up and decide once again that we are going to follow God and do what is right. We must ask ourselves what type of leader we are going to be . Are you going to be a leader into darkness, that loves evil and leads people astray or are you going to be a leader into the light, one who is full of power and His Holy Spirit?

    The question seems pretty simple, we all want to be leaders into the light. But when it comes down to it and the world is weighing against you and a descion has to be made, what will you really choose? Because in most cases the easy choice won’t be the Jesus choice. This is why we as leaders must stay prayed up, because a real leader leads at all times, even when is inconvenient.

    “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”
    ‭‭James‬ ‭4:17‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  34. Micah 3:7-9
    7 Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.
    8 But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the Lord, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.
    9 Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity.

  35. 1 And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know judgment?

    GOD IS OF ORDER!!!

  36. MIcah 3:8

    When Jesus gives us the power to walk right talk right and live right, we better take what he has given us the power of then Holy Ghost Is mighty and powerful!

  37. Josiah: 4 Then shall they cry unto the Lord, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.
    God is available at all times. Many people just come to God when they have a problem or are getting punished. However to have a relationship with God we should daily seek His Kingdom and pray and read our Bibles. So, let us GO DAILY SEEK THE LORD!

  38. The first thing in this chapter is a warning to leadership. Leadership that reveals in tragedy or enjoys causing turmoil. As children of God we are leadership to those around us. We need to be certain that what we do or approve of edify and build up instead of causing chaos and tearing things apart.

  39. But as for me, I am filled with power— with the Spirit of the Lord . I am filled with justice and strength to boldly declare Israel’s sin and rebellion.
    Micah 3:8 NLT

    It is by the Spirit of God that we obtain power and boldness to declare the truths of God.

  40. 8 But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the Lord, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.

    God will judge us all. Every work we’ve done. Good and bad.

  41. 4. The time’s coming, though, when these same leaders will cry out for help to God, but he won’t listen. He’ll turn his face the other way because of their history of evil. MSG

    Have you ever prayed and it only seemed to be regular words – not a conversation with God? I have. It seemed at times, the ceiling in my home kept my prayers from being heard by God. The trial I found myself in made no sense. Was I being punished? Was I being prepared for something coming? Nothing, no word from God. It felt as though I was alone and God had shut me out. I finally gave in and quite praying for deliverance and prayed to help me grieve and accept my current situation as my new normal.

    My prayer life changed. I no longer prayed for what I needed God to do. Rather, I started praying for God to complete what He was doing and help me understand my part – if any, and help me to learn to have patience with Him and wait for His timing. It was and still is not easy to release what we perceive is control over a situation. As long as I was praying and demanding God to resolve the situation, I felt I still had control and was doing all I could. Releasing control to God to do what He wanted and when He wanted is not easy but will change your life.

  42. Micah Chapter 3

    1 And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know judgment?

    2a Who hate the good, and love the evil;

    It seems that Israel and America are the only two nations that have a covenant from God on each of them. Our Nation is also hating the good and loving the evil. It is not the majority but the Government has passed laws instituting the right of abortion and has given marriage rights to non same sex couples thus perverting God’s Laws and order and both nations are out of order. The same thing is in Israel. For the first time three party’s have joined to form a government and a part of the government is Muslim in Israel.

    We must pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We must pray for our nations to turn to righteousness and holiness. If we fail we will see troops making war on our soil.

    I did not type this for political purposes but to say the wages of sin is death and the gift of God is life and life eternal in Jesus Christ. This life includes a relationship with Jesus and baptism in the name of Jesus for the remission of sins and the receiving of the Holy Ghost with the speaking of tongues.
