Scripture: Micah 4:5-8
It was not enough to deal with the rulers, Micah had to deal with the root of the matter. And the root was the rebellious church prophets. And he prophesied against the prophets those whom had led God’s people astray. Micah 4:5-7 states, “Thus says the Lord concerning the prophets Who make my people stray; Who chant “Peace” While they chew with their teeth, But who prepare war against him Who puts nothing into their mouths: ‘Therefore you shall have night without vision, And you shall have darkness without divination; The sun shall go down on the prophets, And the day shall be dark for them. So the seers shall be ashamed, And the diviners abashed; Indeed they shall all cover their lips; For there is no answer from God.’” In effect, Micah prophesied both judgment and the removal of the anointing of the errant prophets. Verse 8 says, “But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord, And of justice and might, To declare to Jacob his transgression And to Israel his sin.” God anointed Micah to pronounce judgment to each level of deception and destruction that was operating in the land. How specific can God get when we are on a precipice like many nations are today? He can go after every layer of deception and defilement and we pray He will.
