FIRST FRUIT FAST , DAY 4 – THE DECREE SHALL BE FAR REMOVED AS YOUR WALL SHALL BE BUILT
Bible Text: 1:13-16; 6:6-10; Micah 7:7-11Series: FIRST FRUIT FAST – APRIL 1ST – 7TH | INTRODUCTION:
When surrounded by a morally sick and spiritually lost society, the Prophet put his faith in God and trusted Him to fulfill His promises. The Prophet having sadly complained of the wickedness of the times he lived in, here fastens upon some considerations for the comfort of himself and his friends in reference there unto. The case is bad but it is not desperate, now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing (Micah 7:7-9).u and the brethren to enable you fit into the new Watchman.
Prophet Micah showed great faith in God as he proclaimed that he would wait upon God who hears and saves when help is needed. He has the confidence that God would bring him and the people through when times are tough, he will be patient knowing that the enemies cannot prevail. Though enemies triumph and insult now, they shall be silenced and put to shame.
How proudly the enemies of God’s people trample upon them in their distress, they are saying “where is the Lord their God”. As if because they were afflicted God had forsaken them, and they knew not where to find Him with their prayers and fasting. In their reproach they see the people of God as abandoned people and they reflect on their God as unkind and unfaithful one.
There is a message of hope coming to God’s people as the Prophet was informed “in the day that thy walls are to be built, in that day shall the decree be far removed” (Micah 7:11). The decree shall be far removed – God’s decree concerning the captivity and Nebuchadnezzar’s decree concerning the perpetuality of it, his resolution never to release them, these shall be set aside and revoked, the yokes upon their necks shall be broken. After these, then their wall shall be built (salvation, deliverance, defense, favour, prosperity, good health etc) (Isa.43:19-20). The Watchmen have received a lot of information that should serve as boosters, propellers in their earthly pilgrimage. The man of God informed us recently that “the Jordan must give way “and in our Sunday light message, we saw that “the lines have fallen for us in pleasant places”. (Ps.16:6)
