Christ’s Birth Foretold
Another of my favorite scriptures, foretelling the mystery, the miracle, that we celebrate at Christmas. Can you feel the excitement building? Let every heart prepare Him room!

2 But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, are only a small village among all
the people of Judah. Yet a ruler of Israel will come from you, One
whose origins are from the distant past. 3 The people of Israel will be
abandoned to their enemies until the woman in labor gives
birth. Then at last His fellow countrymen will return from
exile to their own land. 4 And He will stand to lead His flock with the
Lord’s strength, in the majesty of the name of the Lord His
God. Then His people will live there undisturbed, for He will be
highly honored around the world. 5 And He will be the source of
peace. When the Assyrians invade our land and break through our defenses, we
will appoint seven rulers to watch over us, eight princes to lead us.
Micah 5:2-5 (NLT)
