Impartial Grace: Micah 4

“In that day,” says Yahweh, I will assemble that which is lame, and I will gather that which is driven away, and that which I have afflicted; and I will make that which was lame a remnant, and that which was cast far off a strong nation: and Yahweh will reign over them on Mount Zion from then on, even forever.

(Micah 4:6-7, emphasis added)

Micah has already offered God’s Word regarding God’s wrath against Israel and Judah. Wealthy oppressors are doomed and Micah’s prophecy points to Divine restoration. Micah has taken aim at oppressive rulers and false teachers. Micah warns and then shows the world the promise God has made. In these verses Micah is pointing to God’s glory and a Millennial Reign of Christ Jesus. The Word of God will be compelling. All nations will gather in Zion to hear Him. Jerusalem will be a place of honor among all the people.

Micah exposes idolatry as evil and offensive to God. All idols, including the “traditions of men,” will be forgotten in Christ’s reign. He “…will reign over them on Mount Zion.” We long for the Millennial reign. We want to see Christ’s return. All Christians look forward to the Day of the Lord. Those whom God created with afflictions and those He burdened with disability will be a “strong nation.” People He “cast out” and were “driven away” He restores and makes a great nation. God is love and His Holy Word is evidence of that. This is Impartial Grace.
