Your Personal Invitation to be Saved
and go to Heaven when your life on earth is over!!!
(1) God loves You!!
Romans 5:8, But God commendeth his love
toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
(2) Your Sin (or Disobedience to God) has Separated You from God!!
Romans 5:12, Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all
men, for that all have sinned:
(3) Only Jesus-Christ
can Forgive Your Sins!!
Acts 4:12, Neither is there
salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
(4) Will You Receive Jesus-Christ as
Your Lord (or Authority) & Savior (or Rescuer)??
Mark 1:15, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
(Through Prayer) Sorrowfully tell God Your a Sinner, willing to turn from Your Sins and trust Jesus-Christ's shedding of Blood
and Death on the Cross for Full Payment of Your Sins and will Follow Him.

gather thyself in troops, O daughter of troops: he hath laid siege against us: they shall smite the judge of Israel with a
rod upon the cheek. 2But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands
of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of
old, from everlasting. 3Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth
hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel. 4And
he shall stand and feed in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God; and they shall abide:
for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth. 5And this man shall be the peace, when
the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds,
and eight principal men. 6And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the
land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when
he treadeth within our borders. 7And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people
as a dew from the LORD, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men. 8And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the
beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in
pieces, and none can deliver. 9Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and
all thine enemies shall be cut off. 10And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD,
that I will cut off thy horses out of the midst of thee, and I will destroy thy chariots: 11And
I will cut off the cities of thy land, and throw down all thy strong holds: 12And I will
cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayers: 13Thy graven
images also will I cut off, and thy standing images out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt no more worship the work of thine
hands. 14And I will pluck up thy groves out of the midst of thee: so will I destroy thy cities. 15And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard.
The birth of Christ and conversion of the Gentiles. (1-6) The
triumphs of Israel. (7-15)
Verses 1-6: Having showed how low the house
of David would be brought, a prediction of the Messiah and his kingdom is added to encourage the faith of God's people. His
existence from eternity as God, and his office as Mediator, are noticed. Here is foretold that Bethlehem should be his birthplace.
Hence it was universally known among the Jews, (Mt 2:5). Christ's government shall be
very happy for his subjects; they shall be safe and easy. Under the shadow of protection from the Assyrians, is a promise
of protection to the gospel church and all believers, from the designs and attempts of the powers of darkness. Christ is our
Peace as a Priest, making atonement for sin, and reconciling us to God; and he is our Peace as a King, conquering our enemies:
hence our souls may dwell at ease in him. Christ will find instruments to protect and deliver. Those that threaten ruin to
the church of God, soon bring ruin on themselves. This may include the past powerful effects of the preached gospel, its future
spread, and the ruin of all antichristian powers. This is, perhaps, the most important single prophecy in the Old Testament:
it respects the personal character of the Messiah, and the discoveries of himself to the world. It distinguishes his human
birth from his existing from eternity; it foretells the rejection of the Israelites and Jews for a season, their final restoration,
and the universal peace to prevail through the whole earth in the latter days. In the mean time let us trust our Shepherd's
care and power. If he permits the assault of our enemies, he will supply helpers and assistance for us.
Verses 7-15: The remnant of Israel, converted to Christ in the primitive times, were among many nations
as the drops of dew, and were made instruments in calling a large increase of spiritual worshippers. But to those who neglected
or opposed this salvation, they would, as lions, cause terror, their doctrine condemning them. The Lord also declares that
he would cause not only the reformation of the Jews, but the purification of the Christian church. In like manner shall we
be assured of victory in our personal conflicts, as we simply depend upon the Lord our salvation, worship him, and serve him
Today's Scripture Application
Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord.
Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue with the book of Micah with Chapter 5. In our text today
we see Micah prophesying about a ruler that will come from Bethlehem , the Lord Jesus-Christ, hundreds of years before
He comes. How he will be the prince of peace, the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords. In making application we see how the
Bible stands alone from any "religious book" as it tells of things to come that have come true and things that will
come true. How about you? Do you see the power in the prophecy of the Bible? Let us learn from our text today and the prophecy
of Micah who told of the things to come that have come true that validate the deity of Christ and how a person must be saved
to enter the Kingdom of the Lord.
