The Glories of Our Covenant Keeping God: Part 2

Text: Micah 7

Today we conclude our study of Micah’s prophecy. Rest assured, though, that this is not the conclusion of all the specific details of Micah’s prophecy! Certain portions of his message were fulfilled during the time of the Old Testament (e.g. the return of the remaining exiles from Jerusalem led by Zerubbabel in 538 BC). Yet, other portions were fulfilled during the time of the New Testament (e.g. the grafting of the Gentiles into Israel; se Micah 2:12, 4:7, 5:7-8, 7:18; John 19:16; Acts 15:1-35; Rom. 11:5, 11-24; and Gal. 3:29).

However, there are other portions that have yet to be fulfilled; both God’s judments and deliverances. Through all these events, both past and future, we see the faithfulness of our covenant-keeping God. The relationship that he has established by grace with Abraham and his spiritual decendants, still continues on (cf. Gen. 15:1-21). The Lord is our God and we are his people!
