Hundreds of years before His birth, Isaiah prophesied of the coming Messiah.
Waiting… Longing… Knowing.
Immanuel meaning, “God with us“.
And God came to mankind.
He left Heaven to be here….among us.
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
will accomplish this. Isaiah 9:6-7 NIV
Jesus Christ. The Messiah. The Son of God.
The night that the angels sang of His arrival.
The night the shepherds bowed low in the presence of the King.
The night that a young couple felt both the thrill and the awe of holding deity in their arms.
The Word was true…
and He was here.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 NIV
