Micah 5: 2
Prophecies prophecies prophecies...this one is magnificent and deeply profound..."But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, thought you are small amongst the clans of Judah, out [email protected]!% will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, who's origins are from of old, from ancient times." Version NIV
This manger experience I finally get...of course he had to be born in $#%%h an fulfill so many prophecies...not so much the written ones but the allegorys...and metaphors..surrounding every symbolic detail of Christ's birth...
the three , frankincense and myrrh. God for the eternal kingdom, incense, representing his priesthood and myrrh for his burial and holy death. Shepherds which were one of the first to see him...poor and simple and available right there present in the fields...close to their own flocks who some were probably raised for the sacrificial offerings in the temple...Jesus was to later become our once and for all sacrificial lamb that took aways the sins of the entire world. Isaiah 53...("by His stripes were healed") And they were kept outside the walls...where Jesus himself was sacrificed out side the walls on Golgotha hill. There is so much more...if we look hard but...the final prophecies are yet to be fulfilled concerning his return...
In memory and in celebration...we welcome you Baby Jesus...Happy Birthday...
and Merry Christmas to all!
