Micah 1:1-4. Notice the word “let” in v. 2. Those who allow God to speak to them will understand that He has witnessed every transgression of His Law. Those who refuse to hear will eventually find to their horror that He has witnessed every secret sin, but by then it will be too late to partake in His mercy. They will see Him when He comes in flaming fire and will drink the wine of His wrath. How we must mediate on verses that warn us of that day, when mountains will melt under Him and great valleys will split like wax before a fire, like waters pouring down a steep place. In light of these thoughts, do we plead with sinners? Are we horrified at their fate? Do our eyes run with water as we pray for them? If they don’t, it may be because we have never truly meditated on the terror they will face at the coming of Almighty God.
Micah 1:1 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.
