The scripture for today, May 2 (5/2), is Micah 5:2 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
In today’s world completely connected and interconnected universally, people are asking “Who is the Higher Power?”. Some say the Muslim Allah is, some say the Hindu Brahman is, some say the Buddhist Nirvana, some say the Jehovah of Christianity is. This is called the “New Age Movement”.
Buddhism (though most people do not realize where it came from) has infiltrated the young American culture by declaring there is no such thing as truth. One thing is true to one person, an opposite thing is truth to another person, so believe what you want. Hinduism teaches we have to keep being reborn and live through this yard life eternally or until we become perfect. Islam teaches paradise is a place where you can drink all the wine you want and never get drunk, and are waited on my wide-eyed virgins.
None of the writings of these religions have been proven true. The Bible is the only religious book in the world with built-in proofs that it is of divine origin. Prophecies of many events in the life of Christ and of entire empires flow throughout the Old Testament. No human could have known these hundreds of facts hundreds of years before they happened. And, if these prophecies were truth, then the rest of the Bible is truth.
Today’s amazing scripture prophecies where the “ruler…from ancient times” ~ the eternal king ~ will be born. It gives the exact city Jesus (who had been in heaven before his human birth) would be born in but was written seven centuries before his birth.
The Word of God in flesh wasn’t just a prophet, he wasn’t just a good man, he wasn’t a fraud. Thank God, He thought of everything to help us believe Jesus was, indeed, the Son of God, God materialized.
THEY MET JESUS: STAR SONG is a novel about Jesus being born exactly at the time and in the city prophets had predicted centuries earlier. It is a book of fascination as God came to us in the innocence of a child and kept that innocence his entire life. To BUY NOW, click a picture or paste this: https://amzn.to/2vvlACO
