Micah 5:2 NKJV “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.”
This is another prophecy of the coming Messiah. God is specific in His foretelling. The Messiah is to be the ruler in Israel. It has not been fulfilled yet. The Lord Jesus is now head of the church, but He will return soon to restore all things that have been ruined on the earth. May all look forward to this as the wise men did: Matthew 2:1-2 HCSB After Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of King Herod, wise men from the east arrived unexpectedly in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him. Be thankful that He has promised to come and rule justly, truth, and love.
