Micah

Micah was one of the “minor prophets” who wrote around the eighth century BC.
Micah ministered during the same time as Isaiah.
Isaiah preached to the royal class
Micah preached to the commoner
***God needs people on every level to reach out to others
Micah was in the Southern kingdom, in a town called Moresheth.
His prophesies consist of warnings of future judgment upon the people, and afterwards, a future restoration by God.
One of the main themes God through Micah focuses on, is the treatment of those who were poor, and the abuse of their wealth among the rich.
He accuses the leaders of becoming wealthy through theft, and even the prophets who have become corrupt through covetousness. He condemns their idolatry and greed.
Yet, even though the prophet deals hard words to the people, there is a note of hope and restoration. As a matter of fact, we see that the judgment, in part, is so that God can restore the people.
Each of the three sections begins with a call to listen, or hear.
Hear, all ye people
Hear, O heads of Jacob
Hear now what the Lord saith
It is interesting to note how often God calls us to hear, or listen. It is not as if our natural ears don’t work, but He knows that we are prone to look for, and listen for, evidences that will support what we already believe. It is called Confirmation Bias.

7 Therefore I will look unto the LORD;

I will wait for the God of my salvation:

My God will hear me.

Micah 3:8 KJV 1900
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.
