It’s time! I will begin teaching my newest study on Micah entitled: Justice and Mercy – the Character of God, the Messiah, and the Kingdom on Monday January 10 and 11, 2022!
Who is like God? The prophet Micah tells us! The Lord declares through Micah that He is a God who knows His people Israel and is angry at their wickedness; He holds them accountable for their actions. The Lord also shows great kindness and faithfulness to His people by promising incredible blessings for them through His Ruler whose origin is from the days of eternity.
This short book of prophecy declares God’s judgment against injustice which will prompt us to examine how we live our lives and treat others. It also declares God’s overwhelming mercy to forgive sins. And it unveils the Lord’s extraordinary plans for the nation of Israel during the Millennial Kingdom when Jesus Christ reigns supreme. Knowing more about the character of God and His King will lead us to honor and adore our Lord and Savior as they deserve.
I am excited to have endorsements for this study from several individuals:
Micah is an Old Testament prophet with an uncompromising message that needs to be understood by the church of the 21st century. The urgent need for Christians to grasp the content of God’s Word makes me very thankful for all of the lesson guides by Elizabeth Ficken. Creation of effective teaching curriculum is a special skill, and the Lord has amply given this gift to Elizabeth. Her workbooks are top-quality in every way, wonderfully practical, and are absolutely faithful to the text of God’s Word. I recommend her Micah study and all of the Bible curriculum by Elizabeth Ficken. Group leaders – and their students – will not be disappointed!— Dr. Alex McFarland, Biblical worldview author and broadcaster, http://www.truthforanewgeneration.com; Christian apologist, evangelist, religion and culture analyst
Elizabeth Ficken is a rising star in the realm of writing Bible Studies for women who are interested in real, in-depth studies of Scripture. Her new work, Justice and Mercy, is another immensely helpful contribution. This study of Micah is based on strong principles of Bible interpretation that lead to an accurate and greater understanding of the Messiah and the Kingdom of God. We need to hear the message of Micah, and Elizabeth Ficken has stepped up to help us do that. I highly recommend this study. — Dr. Michael Vlach, Professor of Theology, Shepherds Theological Seminary; Leading Dispensational Theologian, author of Has the Church Replaced Israel and He Will Reign Forever: A Biblical Theology of the Kingdom of God
Elizabeth Ficken loves the Bible and her doctrinally rich studies have been instrumental in deepening my love for God and His Word. Her study of Micah is timely as it teaches God’s perspective of justice in a blinded culture and searching world. Through the inductive study method, you will learn what it practically means to walk humbly with God and be an encouragement to those who are suffering injustice and need mercy. — Amy Dixon, Women’s Bible Study Director, The Shepherd’s Church, Cary, NC
