Micah Preview

Relax, read and Reflect

Prayer- Lord, Open our hearts and open our minds and help us learn. Go-Fight-Win. Amen

Micah Overview
  Next on the list of prophets studied will be Micah. Micah is a contemporary of the prophet Isaiah, which means he lived during the kingdom of Israel after Solomon, during the period of decline. Most historians put him in the rule of Jeroboam II and before the fall of Jerusalem to the Assyrians.
  The people of the northern kingdom of Israel were living in the last of the prosperity of the great Jewish kings. In Micah's eyes were the corruption of the capital, and he did not like it. He was a fierce champion of social justice and pure worship of the Lord, as were Amos, Hosea, and Isaiah. He prophecies both judgement of God and forgiveness and hope to the future. This is something we all need to hear.

1. Where did Micah live?
2. Was Micah a guy or girl?
3. Who were his contemporaries?

Prayer- Lord, as we study the words of Your prophet Micah, help us understand them in our contemporary age. Strengthen us and help us apply these to our Christian lives. Go-Fight-Win. Amen
