Immanuel, Prophecy FulfilledĀ 

December 9, 2015

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Jesus birth was prophesied in the Old Testament many times. Isaiah was one of the major prophets and this verse is one of the better known prophesies.

The book of Isaiah was written 700 years before the birth of Jesus and fulfilled in Bethlehem when Jesus was born to a young virgin named Mary. 

The name Immanuel means “God with us” and refers in this prophesy to what people would call Him, not His actual name. Jesus is called many things, Prince of Peace, Wonderful, Lily of the Valley, Savior, King of kings and many more. 

As we celebrate His birth this year be thankful we can look back in scripture and know that this prophecy has been fulfilled.
