Micah

“After the tribulation in those days” – Then What?

In the previous article in this series on Micah, the concluding comments made the case that divine intervention will be necessary to save mankind from extinction. What else could Jesus have been referring to except nuclear war when he warned that the great tribulation would be so severe that no flesh would be saved unless God cut it short? Jesus also spoke of a post-tribulation world, [...]

Let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah

A continuation of the Micah series “In the final part of the days, the mountain of the house of Jehovah will become firmly established above the top of the mountains, and it will be raised up above the hills, and to it peoples will stream. And many nations will go and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah and to the [...]

Look! Jehovah is coming down to tread on earth’s high places

Before considering the 4th chapter of Micah, which is a prophecy earmarked for fulfillment in the final part of the days, let us first consider the first chapter, which is addressed to all the people of the earth—in other words—to us!  “Hear, all you peoples! Pay attention, O earth and what fills you, and let the Sovereign Lord Jehovah serve as a witness against you —Jehovah [...]

When Jehovah’s Channel of Communication Goes Quiet

A continuation of Micah The concluding verses of the second chapter of Micah reveal something extraordinary. Although God’s people have risen up as an enemy Jehovah is still determined to set matters straight. Verses 12 and 13 states: “I will certainly gather all of you, O Jacob; I will surely collect the remaining ones of Israel together. In unity I will place them, like sheep in [...]

Lately my own people have risen up as an enemy

The first edition of Jehovah Himself Has Become King (2005) considered some of the so-called minor prophets, which included Micah. It was apparent to me that the prophecy of Micah, although set in ancient times, actually contains judgments yet to be revealed at the second coming of Jesus Christ. Even in the most recent Third and final edition, though, I could not foresee or appreciate the [...]

The Sun Will Set on the Prophets

Thursday, January 12 Keep on the watch.—Matt. 24:42. That admonition in itself is a good reason to remain in expectation—Jesus told us to do so! In this regard, Jehovah’s organization has set an example. Its publications have consistently exhorted us to “await and keep close in mind the presence of the day of Jehovah” and to fix our hope on God’s promised new world. Although keeping in [...]

The Day of Your Watchmen is Near

Thursday, September 10 Their best one is like a brier, their most upright one is worse than a thorn hedge.—Mic. 7:4. Jehovah’s prophet Micah saw conditions in Israel deteriorate spiritually until they became appalling under the rulership of wicked King Ahaz. Micah likens the unfaithful Israelites to “a brier” and “a thorn hedge.” Just as a brier or a thorn hedge injures anyone who walks [...]

Who Are the Seven Shepherds and Eight Dukes of Mankind?
