Mic 5:2 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.

This is a prophecy of the birth place of the Messiah, born in Bethlehem, a small city called "house of bread". Out of you shall be the ruler of Israel.

Jesus is the bread of life

Joh 6:33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
Joh 6:34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
Joh 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Bethlehem was the burial place of Rachel, Jacob's wife.

Gen 35:19 And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem.

When Jesus was born in Bethlehem, Herod hearing from the wise men that a king was born to the Jews, ordered the killing of the male sons in Bethlehem who were two years old and younger.

Mat 2:4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.
Mat 2:5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
Mat 2:6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

The wise men returned another way

Mat 2:12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

Mat 2:16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.
Mat 2:17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,
Mat 2:18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

Joseph had heard from an angel in a dream to take Mary and baby Jesus to Egypt.

Mat 2:13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

Mat 2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

They returned to live in Nazareth. Can anyone not see that the Bible is true? Only those who are proud and think they are wise, miss God and his truth.
He is the bread of life. He is my salvation and my Lord; " whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. " Jesus said that he was the I AM, the name for God.

John 8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
John 8:57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

May God reveal Jesus, His Son to you. The human Baby born in Bethlehem, was the Spirit Son of God who would give his life for our sins. He is the Bread of Life and the great I AM, he gave his life for our sins and is raised to everlasting life.
There are lying spirits in high places who are opposing truth. Jesus is the truth of God and his Holy Spirit is in the land, the Spirit of Truth. By our prayers may the Spirit do the work of convicting people of their sins and bringing them to Jesus for forgiveness, truth and everlasting life.
