Micah 7:1 "Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grape-gleanings of the vintage: There is no cluster to eat: my soul desired the firstripe fruit.
The "gleaners" are the widows and poor people turned loose in the fields after the harvest. They take everything. There isn't one grape left.
Our Heavenly Father is saying, I'm looking for a few good clusters of men and women down there to serve me, and it looks like there are none left. It appears that the gleaners, and harvesters have taken it all. I don't see any good people down there.
Micah 7:2 "The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood they hunt every man his brother with a net."
"Perished" means simply "doesn't exist." They are not honest with each other. Each man lays snares in his brothers path, to trip him up, like people are saying today, "Do your brother in before he does you in.", many think and live this way today.
When you're in God's council, He'll clear the way for you, and confuse your oppressors when they seek to do you harm. God's house cleaning is coming very soon, and He will separate the good from evil. If you're doing God's will, led by His Spirit you will be saved in the Lord Jesus Christ. If you follow the Antichrist, you will not be saved.
Micah 7:3 "That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire; so they wrap it up."
As they steal the widow's property, and take from the poor, it is done openly and without shame.
We see Judges rule to uphold systems of outright thievery. There is no shame in our Government, IRS, New age or the United Nations as they come down to destroy. Their planning of robbing is done from the top down. These large Companies who have moved their factories out of the U.S.A are part of it. Their Bribes, ill-gotten money and power is Satan's goal. They ask for unjust rewards in the courts, and lay awake at night seeking new ways of mischief. God has given them their hearts desire, but they will lose their soul right along with Satan if they continue to go his way.
"So they wrap it up". This is a Hebrew term for what we would call today "The system." The system of usury, of unbalanced balances, inflated earnings, cheating, over taxation etc. Who does this system refer to? To those who are Biblically illiterate, and who will not live according to God's Word, they believe in themselves and have no God. They believe that success is a state of mind, yet, no matter how much they have, they want more. They cause harm against their brother, and seek mischief. Our Heavenly Father will deal with them severely.
Micah 7:4 "The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and they visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity."
Keep in mind, Our Father is telling us in this 7th chapter just things and people will be in these final days.
The rest of mankind, in that final generation, will prick you as a "brier" wherever he can. Walk through fields in the fall, and try not to get briers on you. It's almost impossible. It seems like they have a mind of their own as they stick to your cloths. Then, when you try to pick them off, they just won't come off.
This sharp edge of the thorn head, jabs one time and it hurts when it's out. Does this ring a bell? How about the one time sale, when their lies are okay, as long as the sale is made. This method is practiced at the very top of our government, and is accepted. It's the mind of the "Kenite".
The "watchman" is the person that does know God's Word and watches for these signs so they will know, the "Day of Visitation" is near. The Antichrist will be coming soon in person, and these watchman will warn the flock.
Why in the world would God pull his watchmen out in a "rapture" and leave no witnesses on earth? He simply will not.
No, when the signs of the times indicate the time of the Antichrist is right; then the "watchman" who knows God's Word will tell the world of their punishment (perplexity). We are already in those days of the watchman, it's happening now.
Micah 7:5 "Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom."
We are in the hour when Jesus warned us about, in Mark 13: 12-13.
"Now the brother shall betray brother to death (Eternal and Spiritual), and Father and son and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death (Eternal and Spiritual). vs. 12
If you don't know the Bible for yourself, you had better know someone who knows it so they can help lead you through it. There isn't enough time to let some "one verse teachers" dump on you Sunday after Sunday. Read for yourself.
In these last days, even your wife (Husband) can betray you, if she (he) does not know God's Word. When they go whoring after the Antichrist, they will drag you in with them.
Micah 7:6 "For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house."
There is no gender to this, meaning men and women. God is warning you here through Micah, and Jesus warned us directly in Matthew 24:10, Mark 13:12, and Luke 21:16.
Luke 21:16. "And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren (brothers and sisters), and kinfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death (eternal death)."
When the time comes when you will be delivered up, you are not to think or plan what you will say to Satan. When you do, just allow it to be used against you. However, when that day does come, and it will, it will be the "Holy Spirit" that will speak through you at that time. see Mark 13:11. This is both sons and daughters of the Lord.
This is how the true Word will be published in the final days, when the Antichrist will be on this earth. Then mother will betray daughter to death. Who is death? Satan! Hebrews 2:14.
Why would a mother deliver her child to Satan? Because she thinks Satan is Jesus Christ. For Satan will appear disguised as the Messiah, and those ignorant of God's Word, will be looking for a "rapture", they will believe Satan is Jesus Christ.
Micah 7:7 "Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me."
Are you going to wait for the true God, or are you going to accept the fake? Remember the fake christ is coming first. We will never see our Lord in the flesh bodies.
Micah 7:8 "Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me."
Though we falter at times, the men and women of God will arise. When the time arrives, the whole world around us will be following Satan, and his system, yet God will be present with us through His Holy Spirit.
Micah 7:9 "I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have sinned against Him, until He plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: He will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold His righteousness."
We all fall short at times, but God's child will stand, back up, repent, and thank the Lord for correcting them. It is God who draws His own, and He will prepare them spiritually and mentally for the task at the end. Then God will uphold them.
Micah 7:10 "Then she that is mine enemy shall see it, and shame shall cover her which said unto me, "Where is the LORD thy God?" mine eyes shall behold her: now shall she be trodden down as the mire of the streets."
The time is coming when the world and most all of the Christian world, will be proud to boast of their christ, as they follow their Antichrist in ignorance. As the "elect of God" speak out, they will be put down. This time of world domination, for Antichrist to present Himself as the Messiah is very short. Revelation 9: 5-10 tells us his time in only 5 months. Then we will all see the true Christ come in His righteousness.
Micah 7:11 "In the day that thy walls are to be built, in that day shall the decree be far removed."
There is a limit or bounds that the Antichrist must stay within, however those bounds are exceeded. It is what Daniel calls "The Abomination of Desolation", or by the desolator (Daniel 9:27). That is when Satan sits in the temple of Jerusalem, and declares himself to be God.
Micah 7:12 "In that day also he shall come even to thee from Assyria, and from the fortified cities, and from the fortress even to the river, and from sea to sea, and from mountain to mountain."
The deception of Satan (the Assyrian) shall cover the entire world. In that day, it's sealed in your memory, or you simply won't understand the truth.
Micah 7:13 "Notwithstanding the land shall be desolate because of them that dwell therein, for the fruit of their doings."
"Notwithstanding" in the Hebrew should be "But first". This reverts back to Micah 6:6, where the Christians tried to please God with an abomination. It is an abomination to worship "The son of perdition" when he claims himself to be God. See II Thessalonians 2:1-4. Satan has already been condemned to perish, He is "The son of perdition". `
Micah 7:14 "Feed Thy People with Thy rod, the flock of Thine heritage, which dwell solidarity in the wood, in the midst of Carmel: let them feed in Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old."
This is a prayer by Micah for those who know not the Lord. It should be our prayer also today.
Micah is asking God to correct those who don't know who they are. The heritage are the final generation of those 10 tribes that were scattered in 722 B.C., and call themselves Christians of today.
Micah is praying asking the Father: Be good to them Father, bring them around to the place they were of old. Don't destroy them.
Micah 7:15 "According to the days of they coming out of the land of Egypt will I shew unto him marvellous things."
God is answering Micah, and reminding him that if I took care of them then; I can take care of them today.
Micah 7:16 "The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might; they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf."
When they see and hear the true family of God, the remnant or "Elect" speaking out, they shall be embarrassed, and ashamed; as they see the elect of God standing on the truth of God's word.
Micah 7:17 "They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the LORD our God, and shall fear because of Thee."
This is a statement of degradation, saying they have been with the serpent, Antichrist; lying in his bed, and doing his work, rather than keeping themselves as a true bride of Christ. They fell for the lies of Satan.
God thinks of them as worms of the earth, and they have a right to fear God. God today loves them and wants our love and devotion. It's not to late to turn to Jesus Christ, and study His Word, repent and except Him as your savior.
Micah 7:18 "Who is a GOD like unto Thee, That pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He retaineth not His anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.:
The word "Micah" in Hebrew is "who is like God" . There is only one, who has the power to forgives us our sin or pardon our iniquity, It's Christ who will seek out his own, and correct us when we fall. Why? God has a lot more pleasure in forgiving than punishing those who have repented. We are made in God's image, and an earthly father always finds far more pleasure when he sees his little ones doing right when he instructs his children, than to forced punishment on his children.
When a child says momma or daddy "I love you", "I want a hug"; how could any parent not be pleased. So does our Heavenly Father when we seek His forgiveness and repent of our evil doings.
Micah 7:19 "He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us; He will subdue our iniquities; and Thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea."
When we repent God promises his children that He will forgive us of all our sin, and make us pure before Him. God made this promise in I John 1:9, and He will keep His promise.
God will take our sin and blot them out as if they never occurred, and take it far from us. If we will but believe on Jesus Christ, and repent of our sins to Him, and walk in his ways. God tells us His ways are written in His Living Word our Holy Bible.
Friend, we're now in this final generation, one day it will be to late to choose. It's time to get your armor on, and that armor is not guns and bullets, will be using the words, concepts and ideas from the Holy Bible.
Remember this is a spiritual battle, for your soul and eternal life with Christ. Satan uses his lies, deceptions and Satanic tricks. The only way you will stand is with the truth of God in your mind, and the facts as God's Word tells us.
God loves you, and will protect you, if you ask for it, claim it, and reach for it, through His Word. He did it all on the Cross when He died for our sins.
Micah 7:20 "Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which Thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old."
God will return again. God will perform all the covenants he made with our Fathers from the most Ancient Days. He will keep all of His promises that are written in His Word to the letter. You can claim all those promises, if you keep His Word.
He will save and preserve you through the One World System, and while Satan is on earth as the Antichrist.
He will return at the Seventh Trump to make things right, and claim his virgin bride. He will also blot out all our sin's and give us eternal peace and life. It's God's promise and the contract is written in His Word for those who desire to seek it, and inherit it.
