More prophecy from the Old Testament today regarding the greatest story ever told!! The birth, death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior – Jesus Christ. What would the story be without the prophecies of old??
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. 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 land. 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. And He will be the source of peace.
I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
