Good with Micah 4:

Introduction:

The prophet Micah lived in the later part of the 8th Century BC.

He was from a country town in Judah, the southern Kingdom of the Jewish people. He was convinced that because his people had turned away from God, some kind of national disaster would strike.

But his words contained a lot of hope. He paints a picture of universal peace in Gods loving kingdom. A world where weapons such a swords and pears would be turned into ploughs and pruning hooks, useful tools, not weapons made for war. He paints the picture of a world where nations would not learn war anymore. Written 2,700 years ago – it carries a very modern message.

Verses from Micah  chapter Four:

The Lords Universal Reign of Peace

In the days to come God will settle disputes among the nations

Among the great powers near and far.

They will hamper their swords into ploughs

And their spears into pruning knives

Nations will never again go war,

Never prepare for battle again.

Everyone will live in peace

Among his own vineyards and fig trees

And no-one will make him afraid

The Lord Almighty God has promised this.

This is the word of The Lord.

Thanks Be To God.
