The Book of Micah
Chapter 2__The People
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.
Devise is the conception of the evil; work is the maturing of the scheme and practice is the execution of the evil deeds or thoughts.
They lie in bed at night and they think up all these schemes to rip people off and as soon as the sun begins to rise, they’re up and going out to see how many people they can rip off and how much money they can make before noon. Why? Because no one sees them coming and therefore the power is in their hand.
Micah 2:2 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.
They don’t want the field, they want what’s grown there. Wheat, corn, soy beans or what have you. They devise the tax system to benefit them to the point that there are very few independent farmers left in this country any more.
It’s big business to companies like ConAg. Buy up the little guys, one at a time, and pretty soon you’ve got an association going. You know, the little farmer uses fertilizer and pesticides only to protect and improve his final crop; big business BATHES the crop in insecticide and fertilizer to REALLY increase the crop.
It’s big government. Eminent Domain will take your house away if Walmart wants to put a superstore in your neighborhood. Pay off the local tax commissioner, the local planning commission, the mayor and a few other influential people in the city/country and before you know it, it’s a done deal. And you’re out.
Heritage used to mean something, especially to the farmer. His daddy and his daddy before him, worked this land and made a decent living off of it. They didn’t get rich but they sure ate the best food that could be grown in that area.
And that’s just on the physical side of our existence. What about the spiritual? What about your heritage?
Micah 2:3 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.
What family? Judah and Israel. They want to devise evil against their countrymen? Father will devise evil by retribution in kind and your stiff-necked attitude will soon disappear into humbleness before your conqueror. You’ll not shake this yoke off your necks any time soon.
Micah 2:4 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.
Their enemy is mocking them by taking their own words against them: we be utterly spoiled.
Lament with a doleful lamentation literally means lament with a lamentation of lamentations. In the Hebrew language it’s: 'naha, nehi, nihyah, the three-time repetition representing the continuous and monotonous wail. So sorrowfull. The figures of speech used here being the polyptoton and paronomasia.
Father has divided our own fields among our enemy.
Micah 2:5 Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast a cord by lot in the congregation of the Lord.
Long ago, in their time, when they received a new piece of land it was divided by casting lots among the twelve families or Tribes but Father is saying here that that’s not going to happen anymore. Who is the leader of the congregation of the Lord? The priests.
There’s no one that’s going to stand up between them and the enemy. Our Father has already said that He wasn’t going to do it.
How about your priests? Your preachers? Do they stand between the enemy and you and plead with the Father? You may hope and pray that one of them might but you’re only blowing smoke into the wind. Not in this day and age and generation.
Not only is your preacher not standing where he should, he’s the one lying to you to convince you that the false messiah will be the true Messiah.
And you’re not educated enough in His Word to see that or figure it out for yourself. Pitiful.
Micah 2:6 Prophesy ye not, say they to them that prophesy: they shall not prophesy to them, that they shall not take shame.
And as far down into the muck as they have sank, they, the Israelites, have the gall to tell the prophets NOT to prophesy because they don’t want to hear the bad news.
This word prophesy is a little different than the normal word prophesy:
✡ Prophesy_OT:5197 nataph (naw-taf'); a primitive root; to ooze, i.e. distil gradually; by implication, to fall in drops; figuratively, to speak by inspiration: KJV - drop (-ping), prophesy (-et).
To ooze out slowly. And when you add the rest of the sentence it means to chatter. So, what’s happening here? The preachers hold the truth of our Father’s Word and only give it to the people a little bit at a time, to where it would take over 300 years to teach the entire bible one verse at a time, one day a week, like they do.
They’ll take one or two verses and build a 45-minute sermon around it and then it’s two or three songs with arms raised and swaying back and forth…..
Personally, I can’t handle it. I’ve tried but I just cannot do it. The smoke and mirrors drives me crazy, I’ve got to have some substance being taught to me or I’m outta there. And I would hope that you were the same way; that’s why I write the way that I do. Bold. Accusatory. In your face kind of teaching.
We need this now, today, more than ever before. Political and social correctness has turned this whole country into a bunch of wusses. People today have cotton balls instead of brass balls. And one thing that really made my stomach turn was when I heard a reporter say that the people that were killed in San Bernardino were lying on the floor in a fetal position with their hands covering their faces.
They knew that they were going to be killed and instead of going at the aggressor with everything that they had, they laid down and waited for the inevitable to happen.
Socially and politically correct. Want to take a guess as to where religion is today in this country? People are religiously correct. That’s why if you watch one of these Sunday morning religious programs on TV you see them ALL sitting there with their pad of paper and their pencil, waiting for a precious nugget to fall from the preachers mouth. They’re like little religious robots. All dressed alike, all with similar expressions on their faces, all with the same pad and pencil.
Honestly, people…don’t walk into the arms of Satan/Antichrist without putting up a little bit of a fight and you’ll never know what the fight is all about if you don’t get the hell out of that Beth-Aven and bone up on some truth from our Father’s Word.
Micah 2:7 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?
The mighty House of Jacob! Does our Father take satisfaction in your destruction? Does He walk proudly before you? Not just named but called.
Do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly? You bet they do or at least they should. Stand up and act like a man, woman or child of God Almighty.
Micah 2:8 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.
You don’t even hesitate, you practice highway robbery on everybody that walks by you. You take both the outer coat and the inner coat as though you deserve it.
Micah 2:9 The women of my people have ye cast out from their pleasant houses; from their children have ye taken away my glory for ever.
What is His glory? His heritage. Too many people today don’t have a clue as to their heritage and probably would be shocked if they did know. And it has to be on people’s minds these days because of so many websites dedicated to genealogy searching.
They don’t know that they may be descended from the House of Israel. Those ten Tribes that scattered across the Caucasus Mountains into southern Russia, Europe, the British Isles, Canada and the Americas. Basically, all of the Christian nations of today.
Micah 2:10 Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.
If your rest is polluted you are in serious trouble, my friend. This word rest does not mean Sabbath but rather a peaceful place:
✡ Rest_OT:4496 menuwchah (men-oo-khaw'); or menuchah (men-oo-khaw'); feminine of OT:4495; repose or (adverbially) peacefully; figuratively, consolation (specifically, matrimony); hence (concretely) an abode:
This book of Micah, as well as with the books of Joel and Obadiah and Amos, contain prophesy concerning the end time, the end of this generation and if you have allowed yourself to be taken in by the teachings of your church system and you have put your soul, not at risk, but in imminent danger of the Lake of Fire.
Micah 2:11 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.
If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie, that’s a false, sputtering preacher, got it?
And the wine and of strong drink relate to the tradition of wine during communion which, because of the lies and deception, turns into strong drink which produces strong delusion and that delusion will convince the congregation that their preacher is akin to a prophet.
Do you think that those are my words? Not hardly…
Ref: 2nd Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
Ref: 2nd Thessalonians 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. KJV
Man, they sure liked that feeling of rest, that feeling of contentment. I mean, after all, when you’re convinced that your salvation is already in hand because your preacher says that it is then you are free to spend your time making sure that the other people of this fine congregation know how great a Christian you are.
Micah 2:12 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.
Our Father is going to gather the remnant Jacob and Israel together. Do you remember what this remnant was? It’s His Election. Those who were justified. Remember what Bozrah meant?
✡ Bozrah_OT:1223 botsrah (bots-raw'); feminine from OT:1219; an enclosure, i.e. sheep fold:
Father is going to bring His Election together and put them in an enclosure that will protect them against any onslaught.
Micah 2:13 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. KJV
The enemy at the gate is the Assyrian, another name for Satan and in this case, the Antichrist as well.
The Lord on the head of them. Our Father is so much in control that He even directs the locust army of Satan/Antichrist.
The outcome of this tribulation is already certain but what you will do during that time IS NOT. Your freedom of choice comes into play. It’s your ultimate decision. It will be far easier to make that decision now, today, than to wait until the tribulation begins and then expect to have a clear head and make the right choice.
Our Father has been trying to get your head turned around for quite some time now. Stop believing in the lies of Satan/Antichrist.
Read, study and absorb the truth from our Father’s Word and your decision will be a very easy one to make.
