Micah s indictment broadens to the religious leaders prophets 2 6 7
Micah’s indictment broadens to the religious leaders & prophets (2:6,7)

  • Read 2:6,7

  • “Do not preach” “one should not preach of such things”

  • They not only rejected his preaching, they rebuked him for preaching it.

  • They used theological reasoning for their basis.

    • Deut 26, 28:1-14

    • Exodus 34:6-7a

  • They preached a message that only bolstered their confidence that God had limitless patience with the Nation of Israel giving them license to look beyond their sinful behaviors and lack of obedience.


  • Micah s response to their theology
    Micah’s Response to their Theology prophets (2:6,7)

    • Micah rightfully calls their teaching and prophesies “wind and lies” (verse 11)

    • Micah reminds them to consider the entire account of God’s Word:

      • For example: Exodus 34:7b-9, Deut 28:15-68

    • Micah’s message includes their need to not take God’s grace for granted, rather that when they do disobey they should repent and offer right sacrifices and walk in faithful obedience.

    • But their FALSE hopes and expectations would eventually lead to the smashing of them.


    Application what are we hearing and what are we saying
    Application: prophets (2:6,7)What are we hearing and What are we saying?

    • Are we discerning enough about the types of teaching we receive?

      • Scripturally-based

      • Doctrinally-sound

      • Trustworthy authors/teacher/preachers

    • How do we respond to the sins of others, especially believers?

      • Will our words make us accomplices?

      • Do we speak of salvation or damnation?
