Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
Isaiah was a great prophet for the Israelite’s. He served under several kings over his lifetime. In the above verse is his prophecy about Mary. She will have a baby by the Holy Spirit and will name Him Jesus. Immanuel means “God with us”. Jesus, being God, will dwell with humanity. He will come to earth in order to save us from our sins.
Isaiah would later (Isaiah 53) go on to tells about how Jesus will suffer and pierced for our transgressions. How He was despised for us and considered cursed. And that by His wounds we will be healed. Jesus did that all for you and me. What love! How amazing!
The love God caused Him to dwell among us and die for us. That’s even more love in the Christmas story!
