“Yeshua stood and said in a loud voice, ‘Let anyone who is thirsty come to Me and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.’ By this He meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were later to receive.” (John 7:37–39)
Although Micah gave the people such a hopeful message of the coming of the Messiah, he also reproved the corruption of city life in Israel and Judah. He foresaw the Babylonian exile and destruction of Samaria and Jerusalem which happened within the next two centuries. (Micah 4:10)
The book has three major themes: the abuse of Israel, its restoration, and the Divine judgment of Edom.
Because Edom abused Israel, the Prophet Obadiah foresees the downfall of this neighboring nation that descended from Esau (the son of Isaac and brother of Jacob).
