Celebrate Day 11

God provides many details about the future arrival of the Savior that was foretold in Genesis 3:15. Scholars across the ages who have considered them have been convinced of the identity of Jesus the Christ.

“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.”  Micah 5:2

The book of Micah announced the birthplace of God’s expected Ruler some 700 years before He was born. Ephrathah was the district where Bethlehem was located. The city was described as being of no special value yet it was the hometown of King David. The Father set Bethlehem as the seat of David’s lineage, as foretold in Jeremiah 23:5,6. What a good point for a conversation about how God uses the seemingly unimportant for His divine purposes.
