Micah

THE SCATTERED PROPHET

As the prophet who doesn’t care much about chronological order or structure, Micah is a book of prophecies he wrote, not in any particular order. But don’t be fooled by the randomness of this book. The prophecies will stir you, with some of the most well known verses about the Mountain of the Lord and where the Messiah will be born, these books will challenge you again that God will judge those who sin. Restore your heart as we hear that God is faithful and loves His people and will restore them. How patient is our God? You are going to find out in the writings of Micah!

Apart from the first chapter on the fall of Samaria, there is so much going on that historians can only guess at what Micah was addressing.

I wouldn’t want to be on the opposing side of that defense, would you?

While at first this section of text doesn’t present a comfortable picture (when is judgment ever easy to swallow?), it concludes with an infamous scripture.
