A Promised Ruler

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labor gives birth and the rest of his brothers return to join the Israelites. He will stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God. And they will live securely, for then his greatness will reach to the ends of the earth. And he will be their peace.”

-Micah 5:2-5

  1. One of my favorite prophecies about the Messiah from the Old Testament prophets, along with his coming out of Egypt and out of the Galilee. God doesn’t leave any room for doubt, does He?!

    1. Mmm yes those prophecies are so good. He really doesn’t leave any room for doubt, and the way He’s gone about saving is quite miraculous…through a small clan, a non-military family, and in peace He came!
