Micah 5:4 He? He? Who?

Hey yall. So! Putting together my sunday school lesson for this week, going through Micah 5 and I noticed something interesting.

Mic 5:4  And 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.

in verse 3 there is another "he" as well. So question, since its agreed upon that this chapter is talking about the coming messiah, why not make it He? Now I understand that through preservation there is just reason for it to be he and not He. Im just wondering what your response would be if a Critic were to come and approach us KJB readers (its he in most versions actually) as to why its not the upper case He?

would a fair response be that Micah was given revelation of a coming messiah and His source of strength not necessarily His Deity as it would later be revealed?
