Jehovah`s Witness/Micah 5:2

Question
Hello Sister T. Can you explain this verse for me. I'm mostly interested in what the meaning of 'time indefinite' is.



And you, O Beth′le‧hem Eph′ra‧thah, the one too little to get to be among the thousands of Judah, from you there will come out to me the one who is to become ruler in Israel, whose origin is from early times, from the days of time indefinite."

Kevin

Answer
Hello Kevin,

I see you are back again, as I knew you would be, I know this is difficult for you to accept since you are not interested in Bible truths, just bent on trying to prove man-made doctrines, but Jesus is not Jehovah, and as I've said a few times before, the Bible shows that Jesus is of creation, he was created, he's begotten, he's a son, he died, etc.  He is not Almighty God and searching and searching as you might doesn't change that fact.

That scripture at Micah 5:2 is a prophecy regarding where Jesus would be born and that he was alive in heaven before he came down here as a human.  

You want to try to say because it says from the days of time indefinite that he's God, sorry, doesn't work because the sentence right before it clearly says, 'whose ORIGIN is from early times'  

Origin: (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

2 a : rise, beginning, or derivation from a source
b : the point at which something begins or rises or from which it derives

Let me make this clear one more time.

JEHOVAH GOD HAS NO ORIGIN, HE HAS NO BEGINNING OR END, HE DOES NOT DERIVE FROM ANYTHING OR A SOURCE!  THERE IS NO POINT AT WHICH JEHOVAH GOD BEGAN.

Why is does it say Jesus is from times indefinite?  Well it tells us at Col. 1;15 "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation;"

JESUS IS THE FIRSTBORN OF ALL CREATION. So he was created first!  Thus the reason he's called the only begotten son of God.

Give it up and accept what the Bible says and stop trying to prove a false belief!!  

Good day

I can answer questions related to Jehovah's Witnesses and the Bible. I love learning the truth from the Bible and helping others to learn that truth as well. I don't know everything but will answer from the Bible, I like to use illustrations as well to help a person relate to what is being said. The Bible has the last say so over any person.

Experience

I am an active baptized Jehovah's Witness and Jehovah is Almighty God,(Ps. 83:18) and his Son Jesus Christ died so that everyone exercising faith in him may not be destroyed but have everlasting life. (John 3:16). I support my fellow Witnesses on this board who are real, and Jehovah's worldwide visible organization, including the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses. As God is not a God of disorder, and there could not be order if there were not ones to take the lead. Taking the lead and having a leader is not the same, our leader is Jesus Christ, and in order to have unity and order, there has to be arrangements in place. As the first century Christians had, there were men taking the lead, (Acts 6:1-6) as with Moses, (Exodus 18:21) and in our day, in following with Bible truths, we do the same. When people twist that around to us worshiping men, it is just a straight out lie! Why would the Scripture at 1 Tim. 3:1-10, 12, 13 give the criteria for men reaching out for an office of overseer if that was not meant to be? (Phil 1:1, Acts 20:17, 28, Eph. 4:11, 12, 2 Cor. 3:4-6). If we were not supposed to have men who take the lead, why was this scripture penned? James 5:14-15 "Is there anyone sick among YOU? Let him call the older men of the congregation to [him], and let them pray over him, greasing [him] with oil in the name of Jehovah. 15 And the prayer of faith will make the indisposed one well, and Jehovah will raise him up. Also, if he has committed sins, it will be forgiven him."

Organizations
If you have legit questions and want to know the truth, please ask, but if you are here to spread your lies and twists of the scriptures or get your falsehoods out, you may get rejected! The truth is from the Bible, if what you say does not harmonize with the Bible then what you say is wrong! Context and other scriptures help determine scriptures that may stump us, let scripture interpret scripture. The Bible does not contradict itself, so if what you are being taught or if what you are teaching makes it seem like the Bible is contradictory, remember it's not the Bible it's the man-made teaching! Doctrines of men! Mark 7:6, 7 "He said to them: “Isaiah aptly prophesied about YOU hypocrites, as it is written, ‘This people honor me with [their] lips, but their hearts are far removed from me. 7 It is in vain that they keep worshiping me, because they teach as doctrines commands of men." (also Romans 10:2, 3)

Education/Credentials
Matthew 24:14 says "And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come." We are doing that today, we are living in times of Bible Prophecy and as a Jehovah's Witness, we have the privilege to be apart of a prophecy spoken by Jesus himself! The good news of the Kingdom. Ask yourself, what kingdom? then read Daniel 2:44! It's a real government. Take heed now! Listening to men over God will mean your life.(Prov 3:5,6, Ps. 146:3) A lie will never become truth, No matter how long or how many people say it or speak it. Learn what the Bible really teaches, seek out Jehovah's ways, serving God in truth is only acceptable to him,(John 4:23, 24) you can not be serving God acceptably if what you believe is a lie! Pray for understanding and ask Jehovah to search your heart and draw you! (John 6:44, 65) Now is the time to be with the people who are called by Jehovah's name! (Acts 15:14, 17, Isa. 43:7, 10, Zech 8:23)
