In today’s (chronological) Bible reading… Micah 1-4… we are introduced to the prophet Micah. Micah was from Judah and prophesied to Judah, during the same time Isaiah was prophesying to Judah (Hosea was prophesying to Israel). Micah’s prophecy serves as a “Reader’s Digest” version of Isaiah’s prophecy… a little shorter, but the power of God’s message is still there.
God – through Micah – targeted corruption and injustice. Judgment was coming unless they repented.
But, beyond their lack of repentance… and the judgment that would come, there was hope. That hope would come in the person of the Messiah… Jesus the Christ.
