Building Zion With Blood

Micah 3:1-12 — Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity. They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity…” In this chapter, God’s servant brings a message of judgment against the princes and prophets of Judah. They had become totally corrupt and were using their sacred office for personal gain. While written many centuries ago, there are some timely lessons for us in this message, and ultimately we are pointed to the Prince of Peace — our Prophet, Priest and King.
