I am writing a very NON political blog, as I feel led to write this.
Roughly, a month ago (maybe less), who is counting? All I do know it was before the Corina-19 virus, which in Latin the word Corona means “crown”, which I find to be another interesting thing to know.
I was reading Micah to Tim, it was hard for him to understand and so I translated it as best as the Holy Spirit guided me to do so.
I have always been one to be able to perceive the tougher mysteries of the bible.
Anyway, I didn’t think too much about it until today, sometime a week before, I got led to Micah, God woke me up at exactly 2:37am. I know this because I was upset, I am not going to lie, I wanted to sleep, but I kept getting waves of gentle whispers into my spirit about things, God was dealing with me until 5:37am.
I won’t go into detail about the things I have been dealing with but God knew and He also sent me Pastors to my house, shortly after just what I needed to come out of isolation, because they came to my house on happenstance and they kept coming back, as they said they felt led as well.
Fast forward to this evening as I pick up Micah, once again and read the exert of Micah, that he was a prophet, whom was burdened by the abusive treatment of the poor by the rich and influential, Micah turns his verbal rebukes upon any who would use their social power for personal gain.
Think about that! (Selah)
How long ago was the bible written? Do you see any familiarity with what is going on today? It also mentions that one-third of Micah’s books exposes sin; another third pictures the punishment God is about to send: and the final third holds out the hope of restoration once that discipline has ended.
Let’s not forget God allows all things good and bad. He is above all names.
Through all , God’s righteous demands upon His people are clear:
“to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. He desires relationship.”
As it is written in 2 Chronicles 7:14
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land
We have many people in power that are abusing it for personal gain, tons of poor people that are being abused my the rich and influential, take this virus for instance, I heard that some hospitals have to choose between certain people to save because there just is too much demand.
Who will those be, the weaker ones over the mighty? Sadly, think what you want but, yes! It has been going on for some time now they raised the cost of living so high now that, two parents have to work and single ones don’t stand a chance. Is that not taking advantage of the poor by the mighty or influential.
Are there not people in power today that use their power for personal gain, there are those in politics today that are doing this.
I am not saying God sent this virus for punishment, what I am saying is He is control of all things and allows all things to happen. He could be using this time to tear down idols, bring families and relationships closer, He def is seeking those that will have a close relationship with Him, instead of mass hysteria and FEAR= the absence of faith.
What if we took this time to restore our personal conflicts and especially restore a closer one with God.?
He disciplines us like any loving father would discipline their children, instead, this pandemic is exposing the greed, selfishness and out right wickedness of others. Look at the MASS HYSTERIA, people hoarding food amongst other essential supplies.
As it was written in Micah, I believe this is a time since most are in quarantine to draw closer to the ones we love, restore relationships, especially with God, pray for our country and our enemies.
Thus says the Lord:
Hear, all you peoples!
Listen, O’ earth, and all that is in it!
Let the Lord God be a witness against you, The Lord from His holy temple.
For Behold, the Lord is coming out of His place; He will come down
And tread on the high places of the earth. (Entertainment perhaps?, Idols?)
The mountains will melt under Him, ( what, if this meant,literal mountains as He comes back or the mountains that we need to remove from our own lives in this time)
And the valleys will split (perhaps, people being exposed?)
Like wax before a fire, ( it will happen quickly and He will put them through the fire, by the testing of their faith)
Like waters poured down a steep place. (He will fill the deep, hidden areas of their lives and quickly)
All is for the transgression of Jacob ( the sins, that need to be exposed, from those that God has appointed as Watchman)
Is it not Samaria? ( Samiria, is actually translated watch tower, this could mean God’s Watchmen , that He appointed, if it does then some of us have failed in our obedience to Watch over the signs of the time, spend time with God and deliver the word of the Lord, in whatever He tells His Watchman.)
And what are the high places of Judah? (Jerusalem was divided into two kingdoms, some Jews don’t even believe Jesus is coming back, they may even reason that He already did, just like in the days Jesus walked among them, they did not recognize the Son of God and He was killed by His own)
Are they not Jerusalem? ( The Jews, whom do not believe but profess they do, the religious folks of this day. The Pharisees of old)
“Therefore I will Samaria a heap of ruins in the field,
Places for planting a vineyard;
I will pour down her stones into the valley,
And I will uncover her foundations.
All her carved images shall be beaten to pieces,
And all her pay as a harlot shall be burned with the fire;
All her idols I will lay desolate.
For she gathered it from the pay of a harlot,
And they shall return to the pay of a harlot.”
That is Micah 1:1-7
I will leave you with that.
It is all something to think about, not to reason.
God’s word is the same yesterday, today and always.
What was spoken in those times is a word for these times.
” The bold writings next to the verses are what I felt to write or heard in my spirit, it is not to take away from the word of God, it was what I felt He was speaking.“
I pray peace, mercy, grace and the ability for the remnant to rise up this includes myself because the spiritual warfare has been tough.
