Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
It was prophesied in the Old Testament who the Messiah will be, how He would be born, where He would be born, and the signs of His coming. Isaiah tells us, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Jesus came through the line of David and the tribe of Judah. Bethlehem means, “House of bread”, Jesus is our living bread and we feed upon Him. Out of the thousands of Judah the Messiah will come out of the little town of Bethlehem! He is born a Child and yet a KING! A Ruler and a King has a Kingdom to reign over, His Kingdom is everlasting and is not of this world. His goings forth have been from of old, Yes, HE is from everlasting to everlasting! It is by Himself that the worlds were framed and created, and is the same One who was made flesh and came to this earth to die for our sins. What a marvelous savior we have! – Brother Jonathan
