There is Hope

  • God has preserved a remnant

  • He will gather His people

  • He will lead His people (Reigning King)

  • Micah 2:12–13 promises that Israel’s divine Shepherd-King will gather and protect His people and then lead them to freedom. This probably refers most immediately to the Lord’s deliverance of Jerusalem from Sennacherib (see 2 Kings. 19:31).[2]

The people have sinned against God, but He will provide a remnant

  • Taken to Babylon and lived in captivity

  • Returning to rebuild the wall and temple

  • Yet, as a nation/people they continue to turn their back on God

Today, there will always be a remnant (the true church)

We will continue to:

  • Suffer

  • Struggle

  • Sin

Our hope today is that we have a provision for sin. The forgiveness of our sin.

  • Salvation

  • Sanctification
