We have many who are twisting what scripture truly means to fit what they want it to say. Their goal is your children and the objective is to teach them that God is tolerant and accepts all sin. In the article by Christian News it says “Elizabeth Warren Mocks Christians, Sings ‘Jesus Loves the Little Children’ to Justify Homosexual ‘Marriage’”. In another article by Newsmax it says “Booker Quotes Bible to Support LGBTQ Rights”. The article goes on to say:
CNN hosted a town hall on LGBTQ+ issues with Democratic presidential candidates Thursday night. One person, a UCLA student who previously attended an all-girls Catholic high school in Booker’s home state, said her school had regularly refused to allow an LGBTQ+ club.
“It said in Micah, ‘What do you want from your Lord, but what is it you want from your people?‘” Booker said in response. “Which is to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly – walk humbly – and, so for me, I cannot allow, as a leader, that people are going to use religion as a justification for discrimination.” by Newsmax
What does their life exemplify? These articles show there is no fear of the Lord God.
What Does God Say About Those Who Say There Is No God and Those Who Mock Him?
Galatians 6:7 KJV Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Psalm 14:1 KJV The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
Booker Quotes Micah, What Does Micah Truly Say
Booker quoted from the book of Micah. But what is this Old Testament book really about?
Micah 1:1 KJV The word of the Lord that came to Micah the Morasthite in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem. 2 Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all that therein is: and let the Lord God be witness against you, the Lord from his holy temple. 3 For, behold, the Lord cometh forth out of his place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth. 4 And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as the waters that are poured down a steep place.
Judgment Will Come
The Lord is going to come to the earth with the purpose of judgment. This judgment came upon Israel and is coming upon all the earth.
Micah 2:1 KJV Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.
Those in power use their power to plan and work evil against others.
“At the same town hall, Beto O’Rourke, another contender for the Democratic nomination for president, stated that he would make it a “priority” of his administration to revoke the tax exempt status of Christian churches.” by Christian News
Scripture talks about when the ungodly are in power.
- Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
- Micah 3:8 tells us Israel loves what is evil and hates what is good.
- Isaiah 5:20 KJV Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Judgment Is Coming Again
Isaiah is telling Israel the same thing as Micah, judgment is coming. The judgment did come and judgment is coming again over the whole earth. Micah 4:1 tells us in the “last days” God will reign from Jerusalem. But there is also coming a time of restoration for Israel. Micah 5 is a prophecy of the 1st coming of Jesus. In Micah 6:8 we see the verse that was quoted.
Micah 6:8 KJV He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
Worshipping Other gods
In this chapter God goes over all He had done for Israel and yet they had turned from Him and worshipped other gods. They had twisted His truth and embraced other religions and their own lusts. Who is our justice, God. Who is our mercy, God. How do we walk before God, in humility. That is we are to submit, obey, and love every command, precept, and law. This is not about social justice or human rights. Sadly, the Laodicea church is deeply entrenched with many followers living in deception.
Micah 7:16 KJV The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf. 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.
What Is Micah Really About
Is Micah about the right to sin and rebel against His commands, no. The chapter of Micah is about judgment coming because of the sins of Israel. What is judgment for, to instill the fear of the Lord God in the heart of every person. Does this mean every person will submit to Christ as the only way to heaven, no. Does it mean every person will see the Truth, no. Scripture tells us:
Philippians 2:9 KJV Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Believer and unbeliever alike are going to be judged and every person will bow and confess their is no other name by which a person is saved. Every one will declare Jesus Christ is Lord and this declaration will come here on earth or at the great white throne of God.
What is your eternal future?
Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
Revelation 20:13 KJV Then the sea gave up its dead, and Death and Hades gave up their dead, all were judged according to their works. 14 Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And anyone not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.
Therefore, time is short and judgment is coming. Come to Jesus before it is to late.
