Good morning and welcome to our online service.Last week, we learned about what God was doing: beating swords into plowshares, turning spears into pruning hooks. In today's message, we will see how God restores us as a remnant of His people, and includes us in His unfolding plan. When the world counts us out because we are lame, helpless and broken, God has not forgotten us. He calls us to play a central role in His plan.Join us this morning as Rev. Joel Coppieters wraps up this fourth chapter of the book of Micah.Blessings

Micah 4 : 1-5
In the last days the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and peoples will stream to it.
Many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
He will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.
Every man will sit under his own vine and under his own fig tree, and no one will make them afraid, for the LORD Almighty has spoken.
All the nations may walk in the name of their gods; we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.

1 Then I said, “Listen, you leaders of Jacob, you rulers of Israel. Should you not embrace justice,
2 you who hate good and love evil; who tear the skin from my people and the flesh from their bones;
3 who eat my people’s flesh,strip off their skin and break their bones in pieces; who chop them up like meat for the pan, like flesh for the pot?”
4 Then they will cry out to the Lord, but he will not answer them. At that time he will hide his face from them because of the evil they have done.

Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.
2 And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.
3 Therefore thus saith the Lord; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks; neither shall ye go haughtily: for this time is evil…
