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. 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.

    There is coming a time that the Lord will turn a deaf bear to them that were consumed with sin and iniquity. There will be a time where the sinner will try to do whatever it will take to get the attention of God, but it will be to late for them to have a second or third chance. While they were consumed by iniquity and sin they discharged the opportunity to be saved. Now they are trying everything that can be done to get God’s attention but he will not hear them. There are many that will as the scripture states will be turned over to reprobates and be lost for eternity. It is no one’s fault but the sinner. There will come a time where they will be dealt with harshly.

    The church must do and try all we can to save those that are caught up in their iniquities. As the old saying goes, “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t force them to drink”. This is the same mentality of the sinner. You can give them opportunities but they have to decide on their own. All we can do is present them with the word and options. Don’t give up on them. Keep pushing until God says it’s enough.

  2. Micah 3

    3 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, and as flesh within the caldron.

    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 doing.

    Since Israel had neglected God, broke commandments, denied God’s significance, the land was struck down with a curse. No food available, so they became cannibals! God loves us, but since his people strayed away from him, God had to do something traumatic to try to reach his people.
    Is this happening today? We must fight the good fight for the Lord. We are at war with the enemy. I pray for God to get back to the multitude of the lost.
    Thank you Jesus for this day.

  3. 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.

    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭3:5‬ ‭NIV‬‬
    “This is what the Lord says: “As for the prophets who lead my people astray, they proclaim ‘peace’ if they have something to eat, but prepare to wage war against anyone who refuses to feed them.”
    ‭‭‬‬
    Nobody needs a for hire man of God, you want somebody to tell you the way it is the way to make it to heaven. We are too close to the end time.

    A.L.M.A.S.

  4. We must heed the warnings and let our history be one of good and not evil as verse 4 MSG says “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.” What a sad day, when you get to the point that God will not listen and hide his face from you as we see in verse 4 NLT “Then you beg the Lord for help in times of trouble! Do you really expect him to answer? After all the evil you have done, he won’t even look at you!” I thank the Lord for putting all the great leaders in my life that have and will preach truth to me and call out evil for what it is as verse 8 CEV says “But the Lord has filled me with power and his Spirit. I have been given the courage to speak about justice and to tell you people of Israel that you have sinned.”

  5. “but you are the very ones who hate good and love evil. You skin my people alive and tear the flesh from their bones.”
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭3:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    I pray our words match our actions. That our hearts meet our mouth’s posture. As leaders we have to practice what we preach. This isn’t a ‘Do as I say not as I do’ walk but a ‘Follow me to Christ’ walk. I pray our strength in Him, that we are filled with His joy, love, and peace everyday!

  6. 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.

    If no one tells the sinners of their sin, how will they know? And if they are not full of power, how will they go?

    Romans 10:14
    How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

  7. 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 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have his his face from you, that he will not hear.
    Israel’s leaders will be punished because of there abominable treatment of the people.
    And Judgement will come because sin separates us from God.
    It heaven or hell it our chose.

  8. 8 but truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord
    And of judgment and off might, to declare unto Jacob his
    transgression

  9. Micah 3:4 Then shall they cry into 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 65:12 Therefore will I number you to the sword and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter : because when I called, ye did not answer ; when I spake ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.

    You cannot expect God to hear you if you choose to do evil.

  10. 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?
    2 Who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones;

    Leadership is nothing short of a responsible servant who takes the larger portion of a burden of a group of people and is accountable at a higher level. Leadership is not a role of authority and power, it is a responsibility to serve those that are following. The authority is only there to keep the accountability intact. Any old testament, God judged the people according to their actions as a whole and held those who were responsible for them at a higher standard. James 3 tells us at the beginning that be not many Masters for they shall receive a greater condemnation. Masters is translated to the word teacher which represents a role of leadership. We are responsible not just for our families but those they got a place us with influence over.

  11. ‭‭Micah‬ ‭3:4‬ ‭NKJV “Then they will cry to the Lord, But He will not hear them; He will even hide His face from them at that time, Because they have been evil in their deeds.”

    ‭ Proverbs‬ ‭1:28‬ ‭NKJV‬‬““Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.”

    Gods is a patience God. He gives us multiple chances to repent and change our sinful ways. But the day is coming when His patience will run out. Seek Him now while He can be found.

  12. I’ve seen so many friends and family walk through their lives with no remorse of God, they don’t care about the judgment of God. They live their lives totally for their own enjoyment. Carnal and rebellious.

    Then they gave seasons of stress and things don’t go their way. And they bone God for what is happening. This isn’t right.

    Why blame God for the outcome of your decisions? When you never even asked him about it.

    Don’t be ignorant and run from his warnings. Then blame him when you get checked mate.

    “Then you beg the Lord for help in times of trouble! Do you really expect him to answer? After all the evil you have done, he won’t even look at you!””

  14. Micah 3. Message.
    -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.”

    No Excuses For True Prophets of God
    Wow to the men and women who lead without the heart of God ! Jesus cared so much for the flock He sought after one sheep that had left the fold. What are you seeking weary shepherd ? You must have lost a whole flock of sheep? To make you go searching through the long dark night ore mountains a nd valleys deep . When will you stop weary shepherd when will this long night end . You must be searching for 100 he said “No” I’m just looking for one!
    No gain for self but gain for the Kingdom.
    False prophets are going to rise up especially in these lasts days. I’m thankful for leadership that leads by example reaching the lost, preaching the Word with knowledge and anointing.
    I’m thankful for leadership who reach with the heart of The Shepherd Jesus Christ. Making no difference in status of life for their own gain but reaching all … take a great look around where u attend church I pray it is a potpourri of people from every walk of life. Each as important as the other.

    Matthew 7:15
    “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. “You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes, nor figs from thistles, are they? “Even so, every good tree bears good fruit; but the bad tree bears bad fruit. “A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire” So then, you will know them by their fruits.

  15. Read the word
    Stop being rebellious and turning a deaf ear to what you know is right and wrong. Quit making excuses for what is questionable and get on board wit God Almighty. Only he can save you! I love POFW. LIVEJESUSGIVEJESUS2

  16. 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.

    Our motives for ministering are scrutinized by the the Lord, and flase motives will be punished accordingly.

  17. iLove the Kingdom of Jesus2
    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.

    I realize this was a prophecy for the children of Israel back then, but it can also serve warning for us today. All kinds of folks want to give a word today when there’s really not a word. Folks better make sure it is a “Word from the Lord” before sharing it with the pastor (who gives the ok l, lest they be ashamed.

  18. 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.
    Micah 3:1‭-‬2 NLT

    We are the leaders and we must know, do, and teach what is right and wrong according to the Word of God. We can’t be on the fence or be all wishy-washy about some things we may or may not fully agree with. We must be consistent in allowing His Word to filter and guide our everyday lives. We must be consistent examples of what it means to follow Christ. We must be consistent examples of what it means to share the love of Jesus to everyone without any discrimination!

  19. 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.

    So sad it had to come to this, but sometimes if we lose our way God has to break everything down and start fresh. Bringing down everything we built for our glory or the glory of an idol, tearing it all to the ground so that through our destruction we can be reborn, built again and established by the Lord. Not cuz He hates us but because He loves us…more than we do ourselves.

  20. 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.

    Jesus died on the cross so that we would have forgiveness of sin but when we do not turn from sin it will bring death. Their is a time that the Lord will not answer us.

  21. Vs-7
    Then shall the seeds be ashamed and the diviners confounded. Yea they shall all cover their lips for their is no answer of God.
    They will be put to shame and will show this shame openly by covering their lips which was an oriental gester to indicate sham and mourning.

  22. Throughout Micah we have been given examples of one way to life and the consequences of such, as well as reminders of the true and natural Power of Jesus Christ. If looking at such so plain and simple, why would anyone choose the unfortunate of the two?

    Yet, even today we are all each faced with the option to Live and Give Jesus or follow our own selfish desires. And who can say they always chose Jesus?

    I pray that we have a refreshing desire to choose Jesus. Allow His Will to be our Joy. That we grow hungry for a deeper, and revived relationship with Christ, that our desires will align with His desires.

  23. 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.

    Sometimes people will decide they are a prophet or prophetess without God appointing them and this is misleading to the ‘prophet’ as well to the people who listen to them. Thank God there is order in our church and Pastor has any word from the Lord for one of the saints run by him first before it is told to them. Pastor is also overseer of the gifts of the Spirit as well which keeps us safe in this area too. There is a way which seems right unto man but the ends thereof are the ways of death and too many people today are doing their own thing their own way. We must stay in the word of God and be led by him.

  24. Micah 3:4 (NLT)
    “Then you beg the LORD for help in times of trouble! Do you really expect Him to answer? After all the evil you have done, He won’t even look at you.”

    God hates sin.
    It is our sins that have caused us to be seperated from God. It is our sins that have caused God to hide (turn) His face from us. It is our sins that have caused God not to here us. (Is. 59:2)
    If you feel like God is far away today; if you feel like God has turned away from you; if you feel like God is not listening; it’s time to do a heart check. See where sin lieth at the door of your heart (actions, words, how you treat others, etc…)
    AND REPENT!! Before it is to late.

  25. “but you are the very ones who hate good and love evil. You skin my people alive and tear the flesh from their bones.”
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭3:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    We have the be men and woman of our word. We call ourselves Christians then we have to walk and talk like Christians. There are those lost souls who watch us and we have to set the example and be Christ like. We can not walk around acting one way in the church and another way outside of the church. We must represent Christ 24/7. We can no be hypocritical. I pray that we remember to always walk in the way of Christ.

  26. AMP – 5 Thus says the Lord concerning the [false] prophets who lead my people astray;

    When they have something good to bite with their teeth,
    They call out, “Peace,”
    But against the one who gives them nothing to eat,
    They declare a holy war.
    6 Therefore it will be night (tragedy) for you—without vision,
    And darkness (cataclysm) for you—without foresight.
    The sun shall go down on the [false] prophets,
    And the day shall become dark and black over them.
    7 The seers shall be ashamed
    And the diviners discredited and embarrassed;
    Indeed, they shall all cover their mouths [in shame]
    Because there is no answer from God.

    Matthew 7:15
    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    1 John 4:1
    Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

    I Thessalonians 5:12
    And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

    The devil is cunning in his ways. We must be like Micah and be full of the Spirit of God to know when a false prophet is speaking into us, or if it is from God. Not everyone that says “the Lord said” hears from the Lord. I must guard my heart and my mind so that I am only entertaining the Spirit of God.

  27. Micah 3:2,4
    [2]but you are the very ones who hate good and love evil. You skin my people alive and tear the flesh from their bones.
    [4]Then you beg the lord for help in times of trouble! Do you really expect him to answer? After all the evil you have done, he won’t even look at you!”

    When God’s people are oppressed by other people God does not like that. You cause people trouble but then you want God to help you in your times of trouble. It doesn’t work like that. When you show mercy, kindness, love and compassion to others God will do the same for you.

  28. LIVE – GIVE JESUS2
    THE WEIGHT OF LEADERSHIP

    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.

    The LORD speaks to the false prophets who are say they are of GOD only for the money and honor involved. The important message that I hear from this passage today is the inportance of the life, integrity and choices of Leadership.

    Leadership is influence and the certainty of GOD is the question of are Leaders speaking for or against the will, nature and power of GOD.

    To desire the office of Pastor, Evangelist, Prophet, Apostle or Teacher each come with great responsibility and weight of Leadership. We learn from the Spiritual Leadership here in Micah 3 that THE WEIGHT OF LEADERSHIP rises or collapses on or with those that follow.

    The result of selfish, carnal Leadership resulted in Zion (the Church) being plowed as a field.

    I pray for myself and all those that GOD chooses at The POFW will be Kingdom Minded, GOD Fearing, Faithful servants of the LORD. Also that we lead through the Spirit of GOD according to the WORD of GOD.

  29. 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.

    “By the spirit of the Lord”

    Micah knew that the power he had was not because of anything he could do but only by the spirit of the Lord!

    When you have a close relationship with God and know Him, you are able to walk with confidence!

  30. Reading this chapter my mind kept going to the political state of our nation. Who hate the good and love the evil… Out nation needs us ( the Church) to stand up right now and not only pray but take action in our streets against the evil in our leadership. I’m not speaking of rioting but standing up and being heard. It’s time to stand or we will fall just like here in this chapter

  31. 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.

  32. 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.

    God takes care and watches out for his people. Those who would try to bring harm to God’s people will have to deal with God themselves. God doesn’t just leave his people alone, but he is always with us. Even when it doesn’t feel anyone is around, God is there watching and keeping the enemy at bay. We serve such an awesome God that has all power in his hand.

  33. 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.

    When we are full of His Spirit, we will develop the gift of discernment. So we can reveal sin where it presents itself. Call it out because we have to help the world they are sinner needing repentance.

  34. Then you beg the Lord for help in times of trouble! Do you really expect him to answer? After all the evil you have done, he won’t even look at you!”
    Micah 3:4 NLT

    You know when you have gained someone’s favor. When you are sure to be heard and will more than likely have a positive answer on your request. That is usually because there is an honest and true relationship. And have built it upon time and obedience, by taking heed to their words.

  35. “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

    In my house we speak something similar. We declare boldness and speak scripture over us. Stating how after the Holy Ghost has come upon us we can tread and step on serpents. We have dominion over our enemy. I will speak this every day of my life if it’s what I have to do to walk with confidence in the holy ghost

  36. 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.
    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.

    Calling out fake ministries is Jesus’s specialty. He called out the Pharisees whenever they would try to trap him as he walked with the disciples. He does it still now.
    Many “ministers “ are in “it” for the money. They preach feel good sermons, have smoke and other special effects, and they claim to be doing it for Jesus, but in all reality they’re not.

    Pastor has a heart for souls. His passion is for souls. He LOVES Jesus. He loves people. When we love Jesus, we will love people. Pastor preaches the hard to preach messages. He leads by example.

  37. “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

    There are so many people falling for the temptations of the enemy, we have even had close friends that were fully into the word of God doing his works fell into the world of the enemy. As the children of the Lord we need to make sure our hearts are right with the Lord, that we know right from wrong from what God has taught us so as the Lord uses us to guide the lost back home we show them the truth and help them turn their hearts to God. I pray tonight that we stand up to the enemy use the strength God gave you to over come, and have faith when God uses you to help the lost.

  38. 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

    Some things we may do may be unpleasant to Gods eyes. We must have our focus on Him and what He had planned for our lives. I pray tonight that we follow His will go our lives and keep according to His plan!!!

  39. 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.

    In the Bible it says if you’re ashamed of God he will be ashamed of you

  40. 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.

    In the Bible it says if you’re ashamed of God he will be ashamed of you.

  41. ““At that time I will put you on trial. I am eager to witness against all sorcerers and adulterers and liars. I will speak against those who cheat employees of their wages”…
    Malachi 3:5

  42. “I said, “Listen, you leaders of Israel! You are supposed to know right from wrong,”
    ‭‭Micah‬ ‭3:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    As Christian we know what right and wrong is. We the church must teach and spread the word of God. It’s up to us to full fill the will of God and bring people to his kingdom.

  43. iLove to blog the second mile

    Proverbs 9:9

    Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

    Isaiah the Morgan told me this scripture would be good to blog about. He said if you don’t learn your lesson, that means you’re not wise….and I reckon I agree

  44. 10 They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.

    Ones inability to be built from the foundation with good quality materials like righteousness, holiness, the Word of God. Will cause you to later reap distraction because of your character.

    Let us be built on the foundation of His Word.

  45. 10 They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.

    Hmmmmmm shall we not build the house of God up with prayers and praise? Shall we not set a foundation in our lives with pure and holy things. I do not want to set foot in the house of God or even in my life with iniquity.

    I know that I have a path set before me narrow for God wants me to be Holy and pure.

    We need to set our lives ahead with praise and prayer!

  46. 10 They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.

    In order to build anything their put be a foundation or starting point. When you build with legos theirs always a first lego that will support the structure. Zion and Jerusalem were already established in righteousness but the wicked have chosen to build by their own wicked ways in inquiry. The best way to check how we are building is to inspect our inner man are we operating in the fruits of the Spirit? The Tower of Babel was erected because they were ‘scared’ that God would flood them out again. They thought they could build all the way to heaven. Both thoughts are ignorant. The first for not trusting God nor his sign of the rainbow establishing his promise. Secondly, thinking God would allow them to build that high up as if it were possible to get a free pass to heaven. Israels sin against God has many forms that Babel didn’t. This is evident by looking at the severity of their judgment. This is why a relationship with God is so important. Souls hang in the balance and drifting away from God and isn’t an option for the loyal servant.

  47. “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 3:11 NLT

    The calculation of sin the people of God rebel and loved wrong and hate right. This made the people lost and the Lord was furious against their sin, and the Lord brought judgment for the people rebellious. Bless are those who’s hope is in the Lord for the Lord is good His mercy is everlasting and His truth endureth forever.

  48. 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.

    Have you ever been in a phase or point in your life that you feel as though you don’t know what your doing or where you are going next??: “. . . night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; . . .” Or have you ever been in a phase or time in your life when you felt as though you couldn’t feel God??: “. . . and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; . . .” This is not a pleasant place, however, biblical and sometimes needed to get us to learn something.

  49. 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.

    GOD has everything under control, everything and everyone has a purpose!!!

  50. It’s essential to have a personal relationship with God. We see in (Micah 3:2,3,5) that there are wolves in sheep clothing. (Matthew 7:15) If we are not careful, it is easy to be lead astray, just as Israel was in Micah. I also understood that there should be a distinction between false prophets (Micah 3:6,7) and honest prophets of God (Micah 3:8). May the Lord sharpen our discernment so that we would not be ignorant of the devices of Satan. (2 Corinthians 2:11)

  51. Malachi 4

    4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree, and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it.

    5 For all the people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk on the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever.

    No matter how corrupt society is, people who love our Lord must always meet together and honor our God. Many may still worship false gods, but Jesus Christ will be for ever! We cannot deny the significance of our Father Jesus Christ. He is the same, yesterday, today and forever.
    Thank you Jesus for this day.

  52. They were so mean that God had to get a shower. I need to make sure that whenever I am talking with people and doing people that I am not mean. The only way to show the love of God is to be nice. Showing people up and spitting it out just because you’re angry at them it’s not the right thing to do. We cannot repay evil for evil.

  53. “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
    These messages do not come from the heart of Micah, but from God, through Micah. Even though the declarations of Jacob’s sins are coming from the mouth of Micah, they are actually coming from God.
