Four Qualities of the Coming King:
1) The Lowly King: Micah emphasizes that this king will come from a lowly and unexpected town. This echoes David himself whose descendant Jesus is. Jesus fulfilled this with much of his life, walking in lowliness as he came to rescue the lowly- us.
2) The Representative King: the Lord says this king will be “for me”. This was supposed to be what the king’s of Israel was to do but only Jesus fulfilled it. He represented God and fulfilled God’s big mission perfectly.
3) The Ancient King: this king will be from of old, from ancient of days. This refers first to his lineage being traced back to David and his family. It may also have reference to Jesus being the eternal Son, existing forever.
4) A Peace-Bringing King: this king will be our peace. We need this king. Let us draw near to Jesus our King.
