KABASH

Micah 7:19 He will again have compassion on us, And will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins Into the depths of the sea.

I love the Hebrew word for "subdue." You may have actually heard it before. It is the word "kabash." Looking ahead to Jesus, Micah sees how God would put the ultimate and final kabash on sin in His Son, Jesus Christ.

FORGIVENESS AND THE RHONE

The RHONE RIVER begins its journey in the Switzerland Alps, some 5000 feet above sea level. It is one of the most important commercial waterways in France, stretching more than 500 miles in length. The river that glistens and sparkles through France, however, is much different than it was at its origin. As it begins its voyage, glacial clay is picked up from the Rhone Glacier in the Alps making the Rhone River very milky and murky and dirty in appearance. Just before it enters France, the Rhone River empties into Lake Geneva, and a wonderful transformation occurs, a wonder of nature, picturing to us a transformation of souls in the spiritual realm. Most of the clay sinks to the bottom of the lake, and the Rhone River emerges clear and blue! It is so clear and blue that Lord Byron, the English poet, was inspired to describe it as the "blue rushing of the arrowy Rhone."

Our lives are much like that river. Shortly after we begin our journey in life we find ourselves corrupted and polluted by the sins of the flesh. If the Lord hadn’t intervened in His mercy, we would’ve been destined to live out our sojourn unclean. But thanks be to God, when we come to the Lord Jesus Christ, He washes us and cleans us and throws our "sins into the depths of the sea." (Micah 7:19). The blood of the Lamb is much more effective in its working than Lake Geneva is with the Rhone River! Our sins are completely blotted out, forgiven, forgotten; and no sign of them ever emerges again!

My son, Micah died in 2012 from kidney disease and complications.

As he lay dying I wrote this in my journal:

"Sitting at the bedside of my dying son at 3:48 in the morning. Weeping like crazy. Bertrand Russell once said that 'no one can sit at the bedside of dying child and believe in God.' Well I beg to differ. My faith is the thing that strengthens me. How else can I make it through? We cannot do anything else. This fire drains away everything else. Nothing else satisfies my soul. I would love to save my son. I would easily give my life for his, but God has not chosen that path for us. He has chosen a vale of tears, but He will walk through it with me."

Micah now walks with Jesus, and Jesus still walks with me.

And what about other examples from fictional stories: in Beauty and the Beast we find the Beauty having a preconceived notion of what the Beast is like…in the movie Shrek…which by the way is Anne’s nickname for me when I shave my head…. the princess in that movie…she had a preconceived notion of who her rescuer should be…and man was she surprised when it turned out to be an ogre! And here we are dealing with much the same thing…. Nathanael…he had a preconceived notion of who the Messiah was supposed to be…and he definitely wasn’t from Nazareth…and it seems that perhaps he had good reason for these expectations. You see, the Messiah, he was the subject of over 300 prophecies in scripture…and Jesus fulfilled every one of them…but there was no direct prophecy in scripture about Jesus being from Nazareth.

Now, those of you that know your Bible, you immediately think of what Matthew wrote in 2:23 of his Gospel…that the prophets’ statements that “he will be called a Nazarene” were fulfilled in Jesus. But, did you know…this is not stated anywhere in the Old Testament? Nowhere in Isaiah, Jeremiah, Micah, or any other prophets is there a statement that Jesus would be from Nazareth. Is this a contradiction? I don’t think so…the Holy Spirit inspired these gospel writers in ways that we will never be inspired. Also, don’t forget…there were such things as oral traditions that were not necessarily scripture…and it could have been one of these traditions Matthew was referring to…so, I don’t think there is a contradiction at all.

FROM THE "HOUSE OF BREAD"

Christ was born in Bethlehem. The literal meaning for the name Bethlehem is "The House of Bread."

Jesus was not born in the house of royalty, or the house of riches, or the house of celebrity.

Jesus was not born in Jerusalem, or in Rome, or in Athens or Alexandria.

Jesus was not born in any political, commercial, cultural, educational, or socially significant city of the day.

When Micah, the Old Testament prophet, foretold the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, he emphasized its lack of significance to the world.

"But thou, Bethlehem, Ephrata, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel: whose goings forth have been from old, from everlasting." (Micah 5:2)

Jesus was born in Bethlehem, "The House of Bread" ...

In 1991 James Patterson and Peter Kim released The Day America Told the Truth, a study based on an extensive opinion survey which guaranteed the anonymity of its participants. And the truth was shocking! Let me give you a brief sampling of their findings:
Only 13% of Americans see all Ten Commandments as binding and relevant; 91% lie regularly, both at work and in their homes; most American workers admit to goofing off for an average of seven hours, almost one whole day per week; and half of our work force admits that they regularly call in sick when they feel perfectly well.

One particular question on the survey really grabbed me: "What are you willing to do for $10 million?" (Are you sitting down?) 25% would abandon their families; 23% would become a prostitute for a week; 7% would murder a stranger!

“But this is what the Lord says: ‘I will reward your evil with evil’” (Micah 2:1-3 NLT).
