Who Is the Best Prophet?

Read Micah 1:1 through 7:20

Occasionally on financial radio programs, people discuss the current stock market and make predictions about it. Could we call such a person a prophet?

Of course not, but Micah’s audience certainly believed in their “prophets,” especially when they foretold peace while Micah predicted catastrophic judgment.

This is what the Lord says, “As for the prophets who lead my people astray they proclaim ‘peace’ if they have something to eat, but prepare to wage war against anyone who refuses to feed them” (Micah 3:5).

Today we also have those who claim to predict the future, but can we believe them? Perhaps our best answer comes from God’s instructions to His people on how to respond to someone claiming to be speaking for Him (Deuteronomy 18:20–22). If the prediction was not accurate, the person was not speaking for God. No human truly predict the future. However, God can and does. And He will sustain His people through whatever is coming.

Prayer Suggestion: God, please help me to know who speaks for You and who does not.

Quicklook: Micah 3:1–8
