Our Scripture Word Art comes from Micah 5:2 which says, "But 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." My Life Application Bible shared an important detail about this verse that truly blessed me and I want to share it with you. It says, "Ephrathah was the district in which Bethlehem was located. The ruler spoken about in this verse is no other than Jesus, the Messiah. Here, Micah accurately predicted Christ's birthplace hundreds of years before Jesus was born. The promised eternal King in David's line who would come to live as a man, had been alive forever---"from of old, from ancient times." Although eternal, Christ entered human history as the man, Jesus of Nazareth."
Friends, no other Man in human history fulfilled every prophecy that was written about Him hundreds of years ago and still continuing to do so to this day. Jesus was there before the foundation of the earth and He left the majesty of His throne to come to this world---to live among us (human beings) for the sole purpose of dying on the Cross. It was the Only Way to save us from the eternal torment brought by Sin and Death that we inherited from being in Adam separating us from God, our Father! Apart from Him, there is no other Savior! Everyone have sinned by virtue of our affiliation with Adam. The Scripture talks about Jesus from beginning to end. He came, He lived, He died on the Cross and He rose again so that anyone who places their trust in Him ---His finished work at the Cross will live forever in His presence. I am eternally grateful to Jesus, my Savior, for He has chosen to reveal to me His plan and purpose which to this day are still hidden to many. His Name be praised!
For this Card, I used an image from Stampendous called "Winter Stack" which I colored using my Hobby Colour markers. The base is an A7 pre-cut card from Paper Studio, the borders for the hills are from Lawn Fawn and the glitters from Stickles (Crystal). I also added some Liquid Pearls (White Opal for dimension as well as some fancy stitching. The sentiment inside the card is from Momenta Stamps.
