Advent Ornaments: Day Sixteen

Not only did the prophets of old foretell Christ's lineage, but they also spoke of His humble birthplace!

Micah 5:2, 4-5a
But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
Too little to be among the clans of Judah,
From you One will go forth for
Me to be ruler in Israel.
His goings forth are from long ago,
From the days of eternity.

And He will arise and shepherd His flock
In the strength of the Lord,
In the majesty of the name of the Lord His God.
And they will remain,
Because at that time He will be great
To the ends of the earth.
And this One will be our peace.
