The first three chapters of Micah dealt with the times we are living in today, and to the end of the final generation. Micah spoke about the threatening or attacks on God's people in the latter days, that would strip Christians to the bone of their heritage and wealth. That is exactly what the world of the Kenites have done, with the help of certain political and religious leaders.
When the true messiah comes and His feet touch the mount of Olives on Mount Zion, then by natural events, the temples and all about it, will be laid to waste. The mount of Olives will then be a fitting place for the New Temple of Christ's Kingdom. That Temple will be the Millennium Temple, from which will come God's discipline upon all the people upon the earth.
The false ministers; ministers for hire, that Micah discussed just won't be around in Christ's New Kingdom; Nor will the Kenites and other promoters of usury and deception.
Micah 4:1 " But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it."
I have no doubt in my mind we are in those "last days", so this chapter is important to us. Micah is going to reveal to us what we either are seeing now or will see very shortly.
This is what we will see starting the first day of the Millennium. That "mountain" of the "house of the Lord", is Jesus Christ ruling from His temple on Mount Zion.
The "mountains and Hills" are the nations upon the entire earth, and all nations and peoples will exalt Jesus Christ, or they just will not be here. People of every race and nation will flow into Jerusalem to worship the King of kings and Lord of lords, as recorded in Revelation 19: 16. They will come to Mount Zion.
Micah 4:2 "And many nations shall come, and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths;" for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem."
This can be no other time other than the Millennium, for it hasn't happened yet; However, it's going to.
The time of the Millennium is a time of teaching and testing. Look around you today and you will see very little teaching in the fluff houses we call churches today. Most are nothing more than social palaces, or store houses for your money.
During the Millennium all flesh bodies will be gone, and all living in the Millennium will exist in their incorruptible bodies. All will have full understanding of all teachings, without the hindrance of Satan and His followers. There will be no sickness, and our food will be as the angels eat (Manna), and it will be supplied.
When will this come to pass? That's the mystery Paul spoke of in I Corinthians 15: 50-54. "....We shall All be changed" (no Rapture). verse 51. When will this be? "in a moment, In the twinkling of an eye (wink), at the last trump (the seventh trump) ; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible (this happens at death, to all who died a physical death), and we (those who are living) "shall be changed." (verse 52).
When that seventh trump sounds, Satan and the fallen angels and all who have become part of the Anti-Christ will be taken, and all of mankind will know Satan for what he is. Our Lord Jesus Christ will return to earth and His Kingdom starts immediately. All of mankind will cease to exist in the fleshly body and accept an incorruptible body, and the 1000 years of study and doing all things God's way will begin.
The Christian souls and "elect" of the tribulation will put on "immortality" at the coming of Christ, where as those who in ignorance worshipped Satan will not put on immortality until after judgment; at the close of the Millennium. (verse 54).
In Micah 4:2; Jesus, and the saints will teach the entire world God's ways" and all will accept and walk in those ways. Jesus will teach "of His ways" and from it comes discipline. Figure it to be a 1000 year boot camp.
Through the majority of the millennium there will be no other path to walk, because Satan will be exiled. The entire word of God will be taught, both old and New Testament, and there will be no mistranslating, or mysteries. All truth will be known to every soul.
There will always be one thing taught right up to Satan's short time of release, Rev. 20: 2 and his walk into the fire, and that is discipline, God's way. The Word will continue to prove itself, and all will be understood.
Micah 4:3 "And He shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more."
All peoples and nations will do it God's way, or God will rebuke them. There will be no weapons or need for weapons in the Millennium. Many think they can force this world peace through Nations binding together under the United Nations, However, because it is under the control of Godless, Kenites and Satanic minds, quite the opposite will occur.
The only peace under Satan (Antichrist), and his "One Worldisms", is very temporary, it only lasts 5 months Revelation 9: 5-10.
The only lasting peace for this earth is when Jesus Christ's Kingdom is established, and Satan is removed.
Micah 4:4 "But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid; for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it."
Do you understand? No war, No robbers, and no threat from any direction. No more rape, because there is no more fleshly bodies. Most of our pollution and sin is tied to our fleshly bodies, and at the Seventh Trump we are changed instantly to our new body.
Micah 4:5 "For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, l and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever."
Through most of the Millennium all people will be taught and will understand God's Word and His ways. There will be no mental hang-up or blocks because the physical body has been changed. When Satan is released, as he will be, at the close of the Millennium there will be those that still will be deceived by Satan. Even after 1000 years of teaching and discipline.
Those that do name Satan as their god will be consumed in the fire with him. When they are consumed by fire after the judgment of the Great White throne of God, it is their very souls that are consumed, and that is called the "Second Death" in Revelation 20:13-15.
There will be only one God! Those who chose Satan just won't exist. And all those who resisted Satan, and walked in God's ways have life eternally.
Micah 4:6 "In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted;"
"Her that is halteth" , and "Afflicted" are referring to all those that have been crippled, blind, deaf and dumb, and any other affliction a person has been strapped with in this life. God will make them whole. God does afflict people for their own protection in this life.
Micah 4:7 "And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong a nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever."
Her that halted, are the remnant that stood against the Antichrist in this earth age. God will make them a strong people in the Millennium age. They will be in their immortal bodies throughout the 1000 year period, and will reign with Christ forever more.
Micah 4:8 "And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem."
The "tower" of the flock is "Eder" in Hebrew. It is mentioned in Genesis 35:21. It was where the last Son of the 12 was born to Jacob, Benjamin, and he was called "Son of my sorrow". Then Jacob changed his name to "Son of my Right Hand". It was also called Bethlehem where Christ was born also where Rachel died.
The Word "Strong hold" is "ophel" in Hebrew, and it was where David was born, and through the seed of David came the Messiah. This outlines how Christ came at first; in Bethlehem from David, and there you have the "key" to David, and where it shall be established; in Jerusalem. Jerusalem means, "The Habitation of Peace".
Micah 4: 9 "Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee: is thy counseller perished? for pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail."
This is referring to the birth of a new age, in the end times. It is at this time that a giant nation is formed, "Israel". That nation is referring to are all the people who followed the Lord Jesus Christ.
God will have returned, and all Israel will have one King over her and that is Jesus Christ. That tree called Israel, will have many branches grafted on her as many of all nations will come to know and worship Christ. Our King is also present today, and He offers hope to anyone who excepts Him as Lord of his life, and in Him this world will be a much better place.
Micah 4:10 "Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in Travail: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; then shalt thou be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies."
This verse refers to a time, like just before Jerusalem went into Babylon, God forewarned them, yet they did not listen to Jeremiah and the prophets. However, this prophecy is directed to "the last days" verse 4:1 thus it is directed to Jacob (Christians) entering into Babylon or (One World System) refers to the world wide deception of the Antichrist of these last days..
"There shalt thou be delivered (and you will be as Jesus foretold in Mark 13: 11; when you are there, the Lord shall redeem thee (you) from the hand of their (your) enemies, (who are those who take part in Satan-Antichrist's System.)
Your righteous acts will be what you will wear in all eternity. If you have no work for God, you will be naked of all righteous clothing. When you stand for Christ, and allow the Holy Spirit to speak through you (Acts 2), and (Joel) these are righteous acts, and works for the Lord. God will redeem you from your enemies.
Micah 4:11 "Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, "Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion."
Just look around you today. The whole world is gathered to pick the bones clean , of the Christian Nations . The "Kenite: leadership in America today, is devastating our land, Jobs going over seas, and stealing us blind through taxation, regulation, and treaties. They are call the One world Government, of United Nations. America is feeding, paying for the world needs.; and were striped while America sleeps. Wake up America.!
Many nations that are trying to defile "Zion" , the palaces of worship of all the tribes of Jacob in the last days. Those tribes are now Nations with names like England, America, Canada and all Christian nations as well as Judah or Israel of today.
Micah 4:12 "But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they His counsel: for He shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor."
Why? They haven't read God's word nor do they understand God's plan. The floor is the thrashing floor; and our Heavenly Father is going to do some thrashing and separating of all those who claim his name, and live for the world. Not one grain or person that loves the Lord, will perish.
Micah 4:13 "Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion; for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make they hoofs brass; and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto THE LORD of the whole earth."
It is the Christians that will separate at the threshing, they are the "Daughter of Zion". It will be a time of total separation, and no mistakes will take place.
The valley of decision for where you will go is determined now. When you devote your way of life to Christ, and stand for Him against all of the Antichrist's realms, you will be one of those grains that our Lord will be sifting the thrashing, to take for Himself.
God's word is the substance of direction for your life. It offers you a way out of any bind and sickness you find yourself in, and gives you peace of mind through it. That is when you live according to God's way.
