Messianic Prophecy : O little town of Bethlehem

January 6, 2013

Micah 5:2

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting.”

Many of us may know about the Birth of our Lord Jesus; that He was born in a manger, a.k.a a feeding trough for animals in a little unknown town of Bethlehem. What many of us may not know is that God spoke these words through the prophet Micah somewhere between 750-650 years before Jesus was even born.

Why is that important to us? Again, many reasons why. One main reason I wanted to focus on, is that God’s Word never fails, it never waivers and it will remain forever!

In the Gospel of Luke 2:1-7, we have a very important passage illustrating the behind the scenes work that God is so amazing at. Passages like this have always bewildered me, because I never understood why the scriptures would give us information like it does in Luke 2. Until I was taught that our gifted, Holy Spirit fueled authors wrote things like this to give a time stamp of validity on their writing.

It says that Caesar Augustus issued a decree that the whole world should be registered through a census. Not only was the above verse recited in Matthew 2:6, but Luke gives us the undeniable, finishing blow of God’s unfailing Word, with the time stamp of the decree issued by Augustus.

Trust in God’s Word. It has never failed, and it never will. Many will attempt to discredit, ridicule and downplay the power it has. But in the end they will lose. Men are finite beings with a start and an end date. But, God’s Word is everlasting, it has no beginning and it has no end!
