“Resurrection of Light”
Micah 7: 8: “Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy. Though I fall I will rise; though I dwell in darkness, the Lord is a light for me.” Among the many Old Testament allusions to the resurrection of Christ is this prophecy from Micah. It seems to progress the progression of the spiritual sickness and eventual death of both Israel and Judah, but it speaks much more: the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord. Micah was telling his listeners that Christ is risen, and He is the first of many!
