From Defeated Ruler to Conquering King 5 [O]1Now, daughter who is under attack, you slash yourself in grief; a siege is set against us! They are striking the judge of Israel on the cheek with a rod. 2[P]Bethlehem Ephrathah, you are small among the clans of Judah; One will come from you to be ruler over Israel for Me. His origin[Q] is from antiquity, from eternity.[R] 3Therefore, He will abandon them until the time when she who is in labor has given birth; then the rest of His brothers will return to the people of Israel. 4He will stand and shepherd them in the strength of Yahweh, in the majestic name of Yahweh His God. They will live securely, for then His greatness will extend to the ends of the earth. 5He will be their peace. When Assyria invades our land, when it marches against our fortresses, we will raise against it seven shepherds, even eight leaders of men. 6They will shepherd the land of Assyria with the sword, the land of Nimrod with a drawn blade.[S] So He will rescue us from Assyria when it invades our land, when it marches against our territory.   The Glorious and Purified Remnant   7Then the remnant of Jacob will be among many peoples like dew from the Lord, like showers on the grass, which do not wait for anyone or linger for mankind. 8Then the remnant of Jacob will be among the nations, among many peoples, like a lion among animals of the forest, like a young lion among flocks of sheep, which tramples and tears as it passes through, and there is no one to rescue them. 9Your hand will be lifted up against your adversaries, and all your enemies will be destroyed.   10In that day— this is the Lord’s declaration— I will remove your horses from you and wreck your chariots. 11I will remove the cities of your land and tear down all your fortresses. 12I will remove sorceries from your hands, and you will not have any more fortune-tellers. 13I will remove your carved images and sacred pillars from you so that you will not bow down again to the work of your hands. 14I will pull up the Asherah poles from among you and demolish your cities.[T] 15I will take vengeance in anger and wrath against the nations that have not obeyed Me.

Micah can be summarized as "country boy turned preacher." He lived about 25 miles outside of Jerusalem in a rural area. During this time there was a lot of abuse between the upper class and those in poverty. Micah would warn those who abuse such political and societal power. Micah can be broken down into three main parts: Sins of countrymen Punishment by God Hope of restoration Micah would urge his readers to focus on God and to not have differences with your brothers and sisters. Micah predicts the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem (5:2). Micah focused his work on comparing the corruptness Judah to the Justice and righteousness of God. This was unusual because most of the minor prophets wrote about Israel. The people of Judah did not like Micah because of his denouncing of Judah (2:6). Judah's captivity was limited compared to Israel. The people of Judah were in captivity for 70 years which was much less than those of Israel.

I. Introduction If you were going to attack the foundation of Christianity, what would be the first place to start? Attacking the validity of Jesus Christ. Was Jesus Christ a real historical person? Did He really claim to be the Son of God? Was He what He claimed to be? There have been a number of movies and shows recently that have attacked the validity of Jesus Christ such as "The Beast" (2005), "The Da Vinci Code" (2006), "The God Who Wasn't There" (2005), and "Angels & Demons" (2009). Hollywood loves to push a humanistic world-view upon its viewers. Does the evidence in place support Jesus Christ or is there a lack of evidence to prove his existence? II. The Bible The earlier lessons we have proven the validity of the Bible as God's inspired Word. What does the Bible say about Jesus Christ? 1. Jesus Christ Jesus Christ claims to be the Son of God John 5:17-20; 10:27-33 Luke 18:9-14 2. The Apostles The Apostles claimed that Jesus Christ was the Son of God Matt 16:13-16; Acts 2:36 3. The Messianic Prophecies Perhaps the strongest arguments for the existence and proof of Jesus Christ is all the prophecies about Him in the Bible. There are more than 300 Messianic prophecies about Jesus Christ written hundreds and even thousands of years before He walked the Earth that all came true. Here are just some of them: Prophecy | Prediction | Fulfillment Born of a virgin | Isa 7:14 | Matt 1:18-25 Born in Bethlehem | Micah 5:2 | Matt 2:1 Lineage of Abraham | Gen 22:18 | Matt 1:1 Tribe of Judah | Gen 49:10 | Matt 1:2 From house of David | Jere 23:5 | Matt 1:1 Preach parables | Psa 78:2 | Matt 13:34 Great healer | Isa 35:5-6 | Matt 9:35 Jerusalem donkey | Zech 9:9 | Matt 21:6-11 Betrayed by friend | Psa 41:9 | Matt 10:4 30 pieces of silver | Zech 11:12 | Matt 26:15 Pierced hands | Psa 22:16 | Matt 27:35 No bones broken | Psa 34:20 | John 19:33 Casting lots | Psa 22:18 | Matt 27:35 Pierced side | Zech 12:10 | John 19:34 Rich man's tomb | Isa 53:9 | Matt 27:57-60 While these prophecies may not prove Jesus walked the Earth to unbelievers, they provide powerful testimony to the inspiration of the Bible and Christ's deity.

Culto de Domingo - 29/03/2015 (Pra.Milú) Deus determinou desde a fundação do mundo que Jesus viria ao mundo para morrer em nosso lugar e livrar-nos da morte pelo pecado. (Após 13:8). Jesus, ainda que sendo um homem sem pecado, foi enviado ao mundo para morrer em nosso lugar por amor de nós. (I Ped 1:18-20).
