John 6:49 -50

Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died. But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die.

 

It shall come to pass.....on one condition

Micah 4:1 It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and it shall be lifted up above the hills;and peoples shall flow to it,

A wonderful prophetic prayer and one that should inspire as well as delight the hearts of those waiting upon the Lord to deliver them into their expectations.This is one prayer such can hold onto as an anchor of hope, because of its prophetic nature and because it is God inspired, and because the word of God can never fail, then surely it must come to pass..... Although a prophecy which speaks of the coming of Jesus, nevertheless one which believers can lay to heart and apply in their personal lives.

There is a 'caveat' here, an important point and truth which many who are trying to grapple with the word of God tend to overlook, which often leads to frustration. This prophecy or promise is not standing on its own, it was not made in a vacuum it is not one we can simply pluck out of the air and start to run with, it exists in a context.....the declaration it shall come to pass is made against a backdrop of series of event which were pointed out to the people of God. It shall come to pass after the Lord has cleansed and corrected the prevailing evil in the midst of his people. It shall come to pass after his reproach of them and a humbling of heart as a response. It shall come to pass after a turning away from sinful and destructive lifestyle to God and the life he gives. It shall come to pass when the recipients of the prophecy hearken to the voice of the Lord and return to him.

Micah 3:12 Therefore because of you Zion shall be plowed as a field; Jerusalem shall become a heap of ruins,and the mountain of the house a wooded height.

There are two mountains referenced here, one is the mountain built by men, it is the mountain of vanity, iniquity, lies, wickedness, vain glory, idolatry, a mountaain built on the foundation of unrighteousness. We should not be surprised why it was laid low, every mountain built along this pattern shall suffer the same fate. The other mountain is the one built by God himself, built for his glory and built upon the solid foundation of righteousness. It might be small at the beginning, humble in its nature, unattractive in appeal, but the prophecy speaks of this mountain, saying it shall come to pass when this mountain shall tower above every other....it shall stand proudly and boldly testifying to the glory of God thus drawing others to it.....because the Lord has spoken, it shall indeed come to pass.

For the prophecy to come to pass the first mountain must give way to the second, the two mountains cannot be left standing at the same time, until the first mountain makes way, it shall not come to pass, as long as the first mountain is still standing, it shall not come to pass....note to come to pass as described by the prophecy says...the old mountain shall be laid waste and the mountain of the house of the Lord shall tower above all.

Those who seek to delight themselves in this prophetic prayer must take this vital lesson to heart ...for indeed it shall come to pass!
