Let us begin today to muse from Micah chapter 2 and his sermon we have entitled a perception of doom. We find in this chapter the fourth point to his sermon that we have called a declaration of deeds. Why would God punish in such a harsh way of judgment the people whom He loves, it is simply because of their deeds. It is here that Micah list them for us. The first deed mentioned is in chapter 2:1-5 and it is the deed of being a stealer. These large land owners were buying up the land and putting poor people on the street. They knew that possessions translated into power and rule. They didn’t realize they were stealing from God for He said that He was the owner of all the land. The Lord had said even if land was sold it should revert back to the original family in the year of Jubilee. They are still stealers among us today. Those who steal time from their family so they can work to make more money to buy more possessions. There is also those who steal that which belongs to God in the giving of tithes and offerings. In verses 3-5 all in the end was snatched from them and they were left with nothing.
