Micah 2

Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.

And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.

Therefore thus saith the Lord; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks; neither shall ye go haughtily: for this time is evil.

In that day shall one take up a parable against you, and lament with a doleful lamentation, and say, We be utterly spoiled: he hath changed the portion of my people: how hath he removed it from me! turning away he hath divided our fields.

Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast a cord by lot in the congregation of the Lord.

Prophesy ye not, say they to them that prophesy: they shall not prophesy to them, that they shall not take shame.

O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the Lordstraitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?

Even of late my people is risen up as an enemy: ye pull off the robe with the garment from them that pass by securely as men averse from war.

The women of my people have ye cast out from their pleasant houses; from their children have ye taken away my glory for ever.

10 Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.

11 If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie, saying, I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink; he shall even be the prophet of this people.

12 I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.

13 The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the Lord on the head of them.

  1. 7 O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the Lordstraitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?

    8 Even of late my people is risen up as an enemy: ye pull off the robe with the garment from them that pass by securely as men averse from war.

    The people told Micah not to prophesy such unpleasant things because disgrace would not overtake them. But Micah replied that they should not say, is the Spirit of the Lord restricted? Are these works of judgment His doings? Do not His words do good to him who walks uprightly (preacher preach to me).

  2. Verse1 CEV “Doomed! You’re doomed! At night you lie in bed, making evil plans. And when morning comes, you do what you’ve planned because you have the power.” When you put evil into action, you are simply tightening your own noose as we read in verse 3 CEV “But here is what the Lord says: “I am planning trouble for you. Your necks will be caught in a noose, and you will be disgraced in this time of disaster.” Also verse 10 CEV says “Get out of here, you crooks! You’ll find no rest here. You’re not fit to belong to the Lord’s people, and you will be destroyed.[c]”. You have a choice in what you put into action.

    Amos 5:14 CEV says “If you really want to live, you must stop doing wrong and start doing right. I, the Lord God All-Powerful, will then be on your side, just as you claim I am.”

    Deuteronomy 30:15-20 CEV “Today I am giving you a choice. You can choose life and success or death and disaster. I am commanding you to be loyal to the Lord, to live the way he has told you, and to obey his laws and teachings. You are about to cross the Jordan River and take the land that he is giving you. If you obey him, you will live and become successful and powerful. On the other hand, you might choose to disobey the Lord and reject him. So I’m warning you that if you bow down and worship other gods, you won’t have long to live. Right now I call the sky and the earth to be witnesses that I am offering you this choice. Will you choose for the Lord to make you prosperous and give you a long life? Or will he put you under a curse and kill you? Choose life! Be completely faithful to the Lord your God, love him, and do whatever he tells you. The Lord is the only one who can give life, and he will let you live a long time in the land that he promised to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

    Romans 12:21 CEV “Don’t let evil defeat you, but defeat evil with good.”

    Isaiah 5:20 CEV “You are headed for trouble! You say wrong is right, darkness is light, and bitter is sweet.”

  3. 1 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.

    They say that power corrupts, but I disagree I say power reveals the character inside of a person. Just like money it allows a person to do something they could not otherwise do. George Washington, someone that would be ranked near the top of great presidents was given the opportunity to run a third term, given that the presidency was still in its infant stages. George Washington declined and was quoted that he had a promise not to seek unfair power as a government official, well other presents have wished for nothing but power. The point is that ultimately the more we are given, the more we are responsible for and the more we are allowed to do reveals more about us than we know. We must continue to seek humility and that given any opportunity for power to be used and it’s rightful place for the throne

  4. 4. In that day your enemies will make fun of you by singing this song of despair about you: “We are finished, completely ruined! God has confiscated our land, taking it from us. He has given our fields to those who betrayed us.”

    6. “Don’t say such things,” the people respond. “Don’t prophesy like that. Such disasters will never come our way!” NLT

    The idea of not wanting the preacher to tell you the truth when it’s not good news is not a new one. We read of it here again in the scriptures, and see it around us still today. There will always be people who only want to hear feel-good stories when the strong, hard truth could save their soul.

  5. Malachi 2:6 The last of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was no found in his lips; he walked with me in peace and equity , and did turn many away from iniquity.
    Romans 7: 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    This chapter is about the Levites , as God ministers , were to teach the truth and set the example.
    The same with us we are to teach the truth be a example rather than mislead people.
    Thank God we have a preacher that loves us and teaches us the truth.
    Preacher preach to Me.

  6. Me recorde in refran que dice haz el bien sin mirar a quien, DIOS nos manda actuar con bien todo el tiempo, aun con la gente que no conocemos contimas con los nuestros para recibir de su favor

  7. Micah 2:2
    When you want a piece of land, you find a way to seize it. When you want someone’s house, you take it by fraud and violence. You cheat a man of his property, stealing his family’s inheritance.

    Exodus 20:17
    “You must not covet your neighbor’s house. You must not covet your neighbor’s wife, male or female servant, ox or donkey, or anything else that belongs to your neighbor.”

    Love is the root of loyalty to God, and respect for men. It should ever be the great motive that prompts us to obedience.

  8. 12 “Someday, O Israel, I will gather you; I will gather the remnant who are left. I will bring you together again like sheep in a pen, like a flock in its pasture. Yes, your land will again be filled with noisy crowds! 13 Your leader will break out and lead you out of exile, out through the gates of the enemy cities, back to your own land. Your king will lead you; the Lord himself will guide you.”
    Micah 2:12‭-‬13 NLT

    There’s so many negative mindsets that I use to have, but as I have allowed my man of God speak into my life I have been broken out of that bondage of negative thinking, poverty mindset, victim mentality, limiting beliefs, and so much more. Thank You, my King for sending people to shift the paradigm and teach is that we are MORE than Conquerors! Hallelujah!!

  9. “What sorrow awaits you who lie awake at night, thinking up evil plans. You rise at dawn and hurry to carry them out, simply because you have the power to do so.”
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭2:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    I have to say..it really bothers me when I see folks that worship false idols that have more discipline than I do. It just buckles me down and sets a fire in my soul. We can’t let the World have more discipline than us folks. Let’s be consistent in all we do for the Lord

  10. 7 o that art named the house of Jacob
    Is the Spirit of the lord straitened? Are these his doings?
    Do not my words do good to him that walketh upright?

    Of course they do!
    Gods word is what keeps me.
    Gods word is what sustains me
    Gods word is what guides me
    Gods word is my medicine.

  11. Some people look for for a preacher that talk good and make them feel content in their sin. But these preachers are evil. And have no place in your life.

    All they will do is tell you lies and tell you what you want to hear. A feel good preacher is a no good preacher. Be careful.

    “Suppose a prophet full of lies would say to you, “I’ll preach to you the joys of wine and alcohol!” That’s just the kind of prophet you would like!”
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭2:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    • Micah 2

      “If a man walking in a false spirit [spouting deception]
      Should lie and say,
      ‘I will prophesy to you [O Israel] of wine and liquor (greed, sensual pleasure),’
      He would be the acceptable spokesman of this people.

      True men and women of God will preach and teach the word . Ministry is not about popularity on the contrary. If we are to see the lost saved .

      I’ve known of well known men who say they preach the word yet they will baptize people how ever they want to be baptized. We must stay in the Book
      Are we truly an Ambassador of Jesus if we stray from the Word of God ?

      2 Corinthians 2:17
      For we are not like so many others, who peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as men sent from God.

  12. 1 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.

    The rich had control of everything. They cared about no one but themselves. And showed a total disregard for God’s Word. When you live Jesus it should be evident for all to see. They could not give Jesus because they did not live Jesus.

  13. Amos 5:14 CEV says “If you really want to live, you must stop doing wrong and start doing right. I, the Lord God All-Powerful, will then be on your side, just as you claim I am.” This is the word and the word shall set you free. Makes me think of that song “Shackles” …. take these shackles off my feet so I can dance I just want to praise you I just want to praise you….take the shackles off and dont put them back on for ANY reason. Live uprightly for God and you will prosper!

  14. “Don’t say such things,” the people respond. “Don’t prophesy like that. Such disasters will never come our way!” Should you talk that way, O family of Israel? Will the Lord’s Spirit have patience with such behavior? If you would do what is right, you would find my words comforting.
    Micah 2:6‭-‬7 NLT

    You have what you speak! Your words are powerful whether you realize it or not. From the smallest little catch phrase you use day to day to the words you prophetically speak, God is listening. He loves us and wants to see us prosper; His Word is filled with promises just for us! But we have to be in a right spirit and in the flow of His Spirit and His Will.

  15. Micah 2:12,13 I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as a sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the mist of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.The breaker is come up before them : they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it : and their king shall pass before them, and the Lord on the head of them. Th

    Jesus is the breaker, He will break down every obstacle between the people and their God. He will restore and forgive their sins.

    Jeremiah 31:10 Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd that his flock.

    Isaiah 52:12 For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the Lord will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

  16. Micah 2:1 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.

    Whoa y’all… Did yall read that verse… I didn’t realize they had cell phones way back then. Looks likes folks been laying in bed scrolling on fakebook for a long time. We have to wake up and smell the Rosa’s (Taco Tuesday) and realize that evil plans and evil thoughts are not going to take us anywhere. God knows every thing we think and we can hide nothing from him.

  17. 1 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.

    My grandmother always would say, “if you make your bed, you will have to lie in it!” I used to think that statement was crazy until I got old enough to understand. What ever your intentions are with any situation, there will always be consequences whether right or wrong. You will have to endure. For the scripture woe to them that devise iniquity and work evil upon their beds will work it in the light. This is a powerful statement that we have to understand because when we finally make our beds we will be in a state of trying to recover from what we have done. Sometimes you will rest peacefully or sometimes you will fight your inner self. No matter what controls most of your mind that is what a person will react to. If we are full of Jesus from the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, we will be full of rest and peace. We will not have to battle with the demons of the night and when the morning comes we will have joy unspeakable and be full of God’s glory. Remember He is to be praised continually.

  18. Micah 2 MSG

    12-13 “I’m calling a meeting, Jacob.
    I want everyone back—all the survivors of Israel.
    I’ll get them together in one place—
    like sheep in a fold, like cattle in a corral—
    a milling throng of homebound people!
    Then I, God, will burst all confinements
    and lead them out into the open.
    They’ll follow their King.
    I will be out in front leading them.”

    I want it ALL BACK!!!!! As I read this I felt like there are times when you got to stand up for something and say enough is enough it’s time to stand!!! My dad always said if you do not stand for something in life, you will fall for everything!!! Get passionate about something stand and fight for it!!!! Thank you Jesus for Allowing us to serve you and giving us the sight to see what needs to be changed so we may be able to serve you in a greater way!!!

  19. 12 I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.

    We live in the so called Christian nation, which is a comparison to nations that have other dominate religions. It is easy for Americans to have a life long affiliation with a Christian denomination, however a close relationship with Jesus is often lacking. Nevertheless the Lord has a remnant of faithful followers, which shall not be compromised by the wiles of the Devil.

  20. 2:12-13The breaker is come up before them
    This is a reference to Israel’s Messiah who will break down every obstacle between the people and their God. He will restore them forgive their sons and implant within this a new heart

  21. The Message version of this chapter portrays the enemy as suspecting themselves as good people. Hitler believed his arian nation to be pure and the eradication of Jews and other ethnic people to be justified. At the same time, Hirohito believed his actions to invade China were justified and subsequent attack on the US. In a conflict, each side sees itself as good and justified and the enemy as evil.

    People who do evil have justified the morality of their actions to themselves in some way. By convincing themselves their behavior is moral, these people can separate and disengage themselves from immoral behavior and its consequences. All of this is to say that disgraceful acts are often disguised by intentions people have convinced themselves are good.

    How do we tell the difference? It seems like it should not be so difficult to know what is good and what is bad. We should be constantly studying the Bible to remind ourselves what is good and what is evil. Then we need to practice seeing the difference in the world around us and in our own lives. We need to practice feeling disgusted by sin. One of the primary messages in Proverbs is “it’s good be good and bad to be bad.” It seems like this is so obvious as to not need saying at all, much less repeating over and over in different ways. Unfortunately, we often forget this truth and do not realize how bad sin is. God hates it. We must also learn to hate it.

  22. AMP – 13 “The [a]breaker [the Messiah, who opens the way] shall go up before them [liberating them].
    They will break out, pass through the gate and go out;
    So their King goes on before them,
    The Lord at their head.”

    The prophets warn Israel of their pending judgement, but as stubborn people that they are, they continue in moving further and further away from God by doing their own thing.

    Yet, as prophesied years ago, God will always have a people, a remnant that will live for Him and fulfill His purpose. He will deliver them out of the judgements of the people. He will liberate them, and lead back to where they need to be.

    We are going to be on one side of the other; the rebellious or the remnant. The choice is ours to make. Eternity awaits for all, how we live that eternity is up to us, based on how we live now.

  23. 11Suppose a prophet full of lies would say to you, “I’ll preach to you the joys of wine and alcohol!” That’s just the kind of prophet you would like!

    A false prophet will say anything your want to hear. When your unrighteous it like being on wine/alcohol. Whether its true or not, you’ll believe him. Be on guard, know the Word of God, and pull out your Sword to defend yourself against false prophets.

  24. 1 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.
    2 And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.

    These people who devise the plan to steal lands and homes will be overcome by God because they will not be led by God. They have no regard for the inheritance given the people by their ancestors nor regard that they have families to feed-these men meditate on how they can take it all rather than meditate on God and his word and ways. God sees it all and hears the cries of the innocent and will pay these men with a fitting judgment. This chapter begins with woe to the these men and rightly so.

  25. LIVE – GIVE JESUS
    BREAK OUT FOR A BREAK THROUGH

    13 The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the Lord on the head of them.

    The Hebrew word Breaker is:

    parats – to break through or down or over, burst, breach.
    1. to break or burst out
    2. to break through or down
    3. to break into
    4. to break open
    5. to break up

    The prophet describes the dismal state of Israel, the result of their own rebellion and disobedience. They were in bondage, their praise was gone, their joy escaped, their freedom stripped and their hope was dashed.

    BUT

    The LORD spoke through the prophet of a BREAKER. A Leader that will LEAD a BREAK OUT FOR A BREAKTHROUGH. The NLT translation says it such.

    13 Your leader will break out
    and lead you out of exile,
    out through the gates of the enemy cities,
    back to your own land.
    Your king will lead you;
    the Lord himself will guide you.”

    GOD is calling and raising up LEADERS in these last days that are not timid, fearful or intimidated by the times. JESUS speaks to The POFW today to RISE from the rubble, the restrictions, the months of barriers and BREAK OUT FOR A BREAKTHROUGH in the Spirit.

  26. Micah 2:13 (AMP)
    “The breaker ( the Messiah, who opens the way) shall go up before them (liberating them). They will break out, pass through the gate and go out; so their King goes on before them, the Lord at their head.”

    The Breaker, the One who breaks and opens the way for us is JESUS. HE is our King, and HE will lead us. Therefore we can “break out,” we can have a Breakthrough.

  27. “Should you talk that way, O family of Israel? Will the Lord’s Spirit have patience with such behavior? If you would do what is right, you would find my words comforting.”
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Micah is reminding them that these words of prophesy would not worry them, if they were living uprightly. They are aware on one hand that they are sinning just as Micah says, but they do not believe God will attack them.

  28. “I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.”
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭2:12‬ ‭KJV
    The enemy may think that he has the upper hand and bring in much chaos to our nation. But, nothing can Trump The right hand of God and I come against his word!
    “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:31‬ ‭KJV

    “Avenge not yourselves, beloved, but give place unto the wrath of God: for it is written, Vengeance belongeth unto me; I will recompense, saith the Lord.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:19‬ ‭ASV‬‬

    As a body of believers we must stand still and see the salvation of the LORD.

  29. 1 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.
    2 And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.
    3 Therefore thus saith the Lord; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks; neither shall ye go haughtily: for this time is evil.

    God will punish the evil doers And bring blessings on those who live by the law of God. For in this world we have tribulation but be of good cheer for God has overcome all evil and we have the power to do the same.

  30. “Should you talk that way, O family of Israel? Will the Lord’s Spirit have patience with such behavior? If you would do what is right, you would find my words comforting.”
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    I suggest everyone read my dads blog. Some great insight.

    Along the lines what he said, we can feel that we are saying, doing, and acting correctly by our own perspective. Yet still feel distant, and unheard from God.

    Perhaps we should take a special time in prayer and allow Him to reveal to us what is the reality vs our perspective.

  31. “Your leader will break out and lead you out of exile, out through the gates of the enemy cities, back to your own land. Your king will lead you; the Lord himself will guide you.””
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭2:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    “We feel a mighty rushing wind
    We see the flame of fire burning bright
    We feel unquenchable joy
    We see the evidence of Your power here

    Break out
    Break out
    Let Your fire fall
    Let Your spirit move
    Break out
    Break out
    Let an Apostolic move of Your anointing
    Break out

    We feel a jail break
    The move of Your power’s all over this place
    We hear the rumbling of victory, victory” // Breakout

  32. Micah 2

    Well, “Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning’s light they carry it out because it is in their power to do it.” NIV 2:1

    Evil is ramport in this world. I have had DAILY people telling me of disaters or large issues. I am telling them all to get to our church. I pray for them, and let them know GOD is good and can and will help them IF THEY ALLOW IT!!!! Today a friend of mine, her mother has stage 4 cancer and I don’t know her religous affiliation. We must have God/Jesus in our life. We are at war with the enemy but we know who will win!!!!! Everything IS POSSIBLE WITH JESUS!
    Thank you Jesus for this day.

  33. 9 The women of my people have ye cast out from their pleasant houses; from their children have ye taken away my glory for ever.

    There are people that are against you and not for your good. They devise evil tactics against you and your family. They may even smile in your face and talk nice to you. However, on the inside they despise you. That is not the time for us to worry, but rather for us to start praying. Don’t just pray that God will give you strength, pray that God would help them do good. God’s people have power and with that power we can help somebody else.

  34. 7 O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the Lordstraitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?
    8 Even of late my people is risen up as an enemy: ye pull off the robe with the garment from them that pass by securely as men averse from war.

    Carnality is emnety with God. If we love Him, we will obey His commands…
    We must be the example of Jesus that the world needs. They want Jesus, do they see Him in you? In me?

  35. “Should you talk that way, O family of Israel? Will the Lord’s Spirit have patience with such behavior? If you would do what is right, you would find my words comforting.”
    Micah 2:7 NLT

    There’s power in the tongue to speak life or death. When spoken negative word, we become consumed by sin. The Lord’s word are life, salvation and hope. What we speak and declare is what we will get…. for we reap what we sow.

  36. 10 Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.

    We just never give up but push to the end of the line. I know a Marvel quote that says “I’m with you till the end of the line.” I really thought about this and took it into Bible terms lol. God will never leave or forsake us and will always be here for us. I pray tonight that you put your full heart and trust in Him! Also know that not matter how hard it gets He will have your back till the end of the line!

  37. “But this is what the Lord says: “I will reward your evil with evil; you won’t be able to pull your neck out of the noose. You will no longer walk around proudly, for it will be a terrible time.””
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭2:3‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    What good do you think comes from doing the works of the enemy, living in sin just because you want to fit in? Nothing good comes from it, you will face a day where it’s you and God and you’ll realize none of that was worth it. The enemy never wins and if your not on the right track with God neither will you. See God is the only true God, he is the only healer, protecter, and one who can save us from the enemy. I pray tonight that we make sure God is first in our life, and that we sacrifice unto him, for being faithful and living a life unto the Lord he will reward you with peace,joy, wisdom and victory. Only good comes from the Lord when you obey and keep close to him.

    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭2:12-13‬ ‭MSG‬‬

    When God speaks we can be assured that it will come to pass. He’s not a man that he should lie. He is Truth!

  40. How we rest

    10 Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.

    Some folks come in the door from work, pop open a beer, and sit and do nothing all night and call it rest. I never knew what rest was till I got the Holy Ghost. The rest that the world thinks of is only temporary and it has its limits. God has called us to truly rest in him.

    “And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭14:3‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Free from sin and full of the Holy Ghost is true rest. Sin beats you down and causes you to be worn out all the time. But the Holy Ghost refreshes.

    “To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭28:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    The only true rest is the Holy Ghost

  41. “But this is what the Lord says: “I will reward your evil with evil; you won’t be able to pull your neck out of the noose. You will no longer walk around proudly, for it will be a terrible time.””
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭2:3‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    What you put in it what you are going to get out. Your actions have consequences. If you decide to live in a world full of sin there will be consequences. Don’t allow the weight of this world to cause you to drift away. Always remain in the will of god. Seek his face daily through prayer , fasting and reading his word. Examine yourself daily and repent because you don’t want to reap bad because of what you have sewed.

  42. “Suppose a prophet full of lies would say to you, “I’ll preach to you the joys of wine and alcohol!” That’s just the kind of prophet you would like!”
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭2:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Lies are sin. Lying is a big sin it causes more sins which ends up coming back to you. We shouldn’t be okay of people lying to other people because it causes them to believe something false which and cause false hope, love, safety, relationships, and perspective.

  43. 3 Therefore thus saith the Lord; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks; neither shall ye go haughtily: for this time is evil.

  44. 7 O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the Lord straitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?

    To some it may seem that the word of God is a hard thing. They may think of it as a bunch of commands a bunch of things to do and just a bunch of rules that are gonna take the life out of the. The sad thing is that in His words are found the true life. Yes. They do good to him that walketh uprightly. Yes, they are a lamp unto the feet that take heed and abide by them. Yes, they are a way of life. They are a pathway to blessings. They are the true riches that anyone could get. It is knowing God. He is the living Word.

  45. 10 Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.

    The trials God had us go through are not to harm us but to make us stronger in whim and in our faith. Even if you think your being destroyed you are not, God is on our side and always wants us to defeat the enemy with His help in our faith.

  46. 1 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.

    Be very careful not to bring evil into the lost intament and restful areas of your life. It will then be easily apart of your life. Some fall into this trap willingly and others I continually but regardless of which way it happens it is very deadly.

  47. Micah Chapter 2

    New Living Translation:

    2:12 “Someday, O Israel, I will gather you; I will gather the remnant who are left. I will bring you together again like sheep in a pen, like a flock in its pasture. Yes, your land will again be filled with noisy crowds!

    2:13 Your leader will break out and lead you out of exile, out through the gates of the enemy cities, back to your own land. Your king will lead you;
    the LORD himself will guide you.”

    Jesus will gather you O Israel and it will be the remnant you shall be lost sheep and protected. Like a flock in its pasture.
    Jesus goes before you to your own land. Your King will lead you and the Lord himself will guide you.

    Let us take a look at John the 10 Chapter.

    2 But the one who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep.

    3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep recognize his voice and come to him. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

    4 After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them, and they follow him because they know his voice. Do we recognize His voice?

    5 They won’t follow a stranger; they will run from him because they don’t know his voice.”

    Jesus explains the following.

    7 so he explained it to them: “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep.

    9 Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.

    11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep. Is He your good Sheppard?

    14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, Not only is He the good Sheppard we know his voice.

    16 I have other sheep, too, that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them also. They will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock with one shepherd. This verse is talking about all those that are not of the House of Israel (you and me all races and colors).

  48. 2 And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.

    the enemy has no mercy!!! he steals, kills and destroys, he is the father of lies!!! We must be ready!!!
