Prophecies (2)

Bible Reading: Matthew 2:1
Saturday, November 28, 2015

Prophecies (2)God used the prophet Micah to make a prophecy telling people EXACTLY where Jesus would be born. And this prophecy was told at least 600 years before Jesus was born. Micah said in Micah 5:2, “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, are the smallest town in Judah. Your family is almost too small to count, but the ‘Ruler of Israel’ will come from you to rule for me. His beginnings are from ancient times, from long, long ago.” Then in Matthew 2:1, we read that this prophecy came true. Jesus was born in the exact town where Micah said he would be born — Bethlehem.

God is amazing! There are so many cities in world — too many to count. Bethlehem was a small town. It was not like Chicago or New York City. God knew the exact town where His Son, Jesus, would be born long before it happened.

Only the one true God could know what would happen, tell people before it would happen and make it truly happen. Praise God! — CPE*

“The Scriptures say that the Messiah will come from the family of David. And they say that he will come from Bethlehem, the town where David lived.” John 7:42

PRAYER: Father, I want to show Your love to other people. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
