The Gospel In Micah

Micah 4:1-8


A proper beginning

A Proper Beginning

  • Can a building be built “from the top down?”

  • In Bible study, we start from the top and work backward, if we ever do.

  • Like we read a “mystery” novel, skip to the end to see “who done it”.

  • No foundation – To the Jew first and then… Why?

  • The foundation is the Old Testament.

  • 2 Timothy 3:15


The problem with religion

The Problem With “Religion”

  • With no foundation, we have no stability. We are “tossed to and fro with every wind of doctrine.”

  • What is the mission and purpose of God for man?

  • Recreation, education, social affairs?

  • A mean nothing, do nothing church.

  • Read with me – Micah 4:1-8. We’ll consider 10 points from this passage (quickly).


Importance of god s new place

Importance of God’s New Place

  • “Will be established as the chief…”

  • Daniel 2:35-44

  • Mt Zion – God’s dwelling, but 3:12 says it will be “plowed”.

  • How important is the “church”, God’s new dwelling? I Cor. 6:19

  • But, “the church isn’t important” in modern thinking. We need this foundation point.


The when of the establishment

The “When” of the Establishment

  • “In the last days…”

  • Peter in Acts 2 quotes Joel, “This is that which was spoken of…”

  • “When the Bible says “This is That”, That’s That!

  • In the first century, around 30 AD. Not before, and not 1900 years later.


The where of the establishment

The “Where” of the Establishment

  • “Even the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”

  • Luke 24:47; Acts 1:4-8

  • Not Elmyra, N. Y. or England, or Switzerland, or any other place.


The inhabitants of god s dwelling place

The Inhabitants of God’s Dwelling Place

  • “Many nations”.

  • The old dwelling place of God was nationalistic – Jerusalem of the Jews.

  • But Daniel said it would fill the earth.

  • Look at the “great commission” – Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16


The function of god s dwelling place

The Function of God’s Dwelling Place

  • Evangelism – “From Zion will go forth the law…”

  • I Timothy 3:15

  • A tremendous invitation – rooted in this Old Testament passage.

  • “Come let us go up to the mountain of God’s House…”

  • This isn’t an O. T. concept.


God s intent for his people

God’s Intent For His People

  • Peace – “Swords into plow shares.”

  • Isaiah 11:9; Eph. 2:15-18

  • By the blood of Jesus we have (1) Peace with God – by his stripes we are healed. (2) Peace of mind – that which passes understanding. (3) Peace with each other.

  • A church at war within is not this Zion. Where pride, stubbornness and ego rule are not God’s dwelling place – James 3:13ff.


The promise of god s dwelling place

The Promise of God’s Dwelling Place

  • Prosperity – “Sit under his vine and fig tree.”

  • Israel was a land “flowing with milk and honey.” What a promise to people who had wondered in wilderness for 40 years.

  • For us – “every spiritual blessing” ( Eph. 1:3).

  • God gives us physical things, but that’s not our true wealth.


The foundation of god s dwelling place

The Foundation of God’s Dwelling Place

  • “Walk in the name of the Lord our God” – authority!

  • The world will always follow it’s gods.

  • We follow Jehovah by listening to his commands.


The duration

The Duration

  • “Forever”

  • This isn’t a word that applies to human kingdoms.

  • Luke 1:32-33!

  • Not 1000 years.


The reign of christ

The Reign of Christ

  • “The Lord will reign forever”

  • Over all who respond to His Will.

  • Anyone – the lame, the outcasts – Jew and Gentile.

  • All have received the invitation – but we must respond. Heb. 2:9; 5:9,
