Mic 2:6 “Do not preach”—thus they preach— “one should not preach of such things; disgrace will not overtake us. (Revised Version)
Mic 2:6 Prophesy ye not, thus they prophesy. They shall not prophesy to these: reproaches shall not depart. (American Standard)
Preach? Prophesy? Regardless of the word used, Strong says it means “to speak by inspiration.” Obviously, today we cannot speak by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit except when we are quoting what He inspired in the men who wrote the Bible. However…it would appear that the main thrust of this verse is that some–the “they” in the verse–would like to silence the Word of God. So, today, when we speak from God’s Word, there are many who will tell us that we should not warn of things which do not please God because these things will cause shame to those who espouse them.
Wake up! Do you remember Hosea 4:6…”My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge:” Therefore, we, as Christians, have a responsibility to speak out against the open sins that have overtaken out society today. When was the last time you spoke out against some of the things which are prevalent in America today? When will you speak out?
What say ye?
