The Coming Kingdom of Our Lord: Part 2

Posted by on May 27, 2008 in Rev. Serven

Short review of the history of the book of Micah. God brings forth a Redeemer for the remnant. Lone Ranger Christians. Peace in the life of the Christian. Story of John Wesley. The remnant is great and growing multitude. Text: Micah 5:1-9 We return to our study of the Prophet Micah and his message about the coming kingdom of our Lord. In chapter 4 we noted Micah’s vision of the Lord’s House, the Lord’s People, and the Lord’s Victory. We also discussed how this kingdom actually began with the earthly ministry of the Lord Jesus (cf.

Judgments on Prophets, Priests, and Kings

Posted by on May 4, 2008 in Rev. Serven

Text: Micah 3:1-12 All prophets, priests, and kings have been given a sacred trust by God to uphold justice and righteousness in their respective offices (cf. Ex. 18:21-22, 19:5-6, 28-29; Duet. 18:21-22; Rom. 13:1; 1 Pet. 2:4-5, 9, 13-17). Moreover, when they are faithful in their conduct they emulate the Lord Jesus Christ. These men should be honored for the sake of their office, but this does not mean that their behavior and judgments are always honorable. Sadly, the following Latin phrase is true: Delirant reges, plectuntur Achivi, “The Kings act foolishly and the people suffer for it.”...
