"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." - Micah 5:2

"So they said to him, 'In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet: 'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are you not the least among rulers of Judah; for out of you shall come a Ruler who will shepherd My people Israel.' " - Matthew 2:5-6

God did not choose a big city or even Jerusalem, nor did He choose a palace to send forth His Son into the world. But the birth of our Lord was in a humble setting and only a few people knew that the King of Israel was born that night. When Herod heard of the Child's birth, he was not happy and on the contrary he tried to kill the Child. Jesus, the Son of God, was born in Bethlehem just as prophesied and He died and rose again and He is returning soon just as prophesied. Are you ready for Him?
Praise God!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
