IN THE LAST DAYS.
Micah tells of a time at the end of earthly history when God will rule over the entire world.1. It will be a time of peace, goodness and happiness. God will be honored and worshiped not only by a unified Israel, but also by all the nations of the world.
2. The "mountain of the LORD'S temple" (Jerusalem) will be the center of God's government. This future kingdom will begin when Christ returns to destroy all evil and to establish His reign on earth Revelation 20:4)
WALK IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.
How should we live while we wait for God's kingdom to come in its complete form? Micah tells us. Walking "in the name of the LORD" means that we must live in a way, that is worthy of being associated with God. As Christ's followers, we are to be God's representatives - reflecting His character, serving His purposes and exercising His authority over evil. We must go about our daily lives with a strong awareness of God's presence, which will encourage our faith in God and keep us from doing things that are not right. In the process, we will be able to influence others to follow Christ (2 Peter 3:11-12).
WHY DO YOU NOW CRY ALOUD.
The prophet switches his focus again from future hope to the present doom that awaits Jerusalem. He tells the people that they will be taken captive to Babylon. This was an amazing prediction since Micah spoke this prophecy 100 years before the Babylonian Empire became the leading world power (the Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem in 586 B.C.). But hope rises again, for Micah foresees Jews one day returning from Babylon (Verse 10).
