Micah 5:2 ” But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for Me one who will be Ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”

This prophecy of the coming Messiah was quoted 700 years later by the Chief Priests and Scribes when King Herod asked where the Christ was to be born.  In John 7: 25-44 we see Jesus at the Feast of the Tabernacles proclaiming that He was indeed the Messiah,  only to see the skeptics  quoting this Scripture again…but then mistakenly assuming He had been born in His home town of Galilee rather than Bethlehem.  But God never makes mistakes…His timing is always perfect…His promises always fulfilled.  This long-awaited Savior of the world had indeed been born in Bethlehem for us all.
