Prophecies (1)

God used the prophet Isaiah to tell people a prophecy about the birth of Jesus. This prophecy is recorded in Isaiah 7:14: “But the Lord will still show you this sign: The young woman is pregnant and will give birth to a son. She will name him Immanuel.” This prophecy was made at least 700 years before Jesus was born!
In the New Testament, Matthew wanted people to know that what God had said would happen truly happened. Matthew said in our Bible Reading, “All this happened to make clear the full meaning of what the Lord said through the prophet” (verse 22).
If I tried to predict what would happen 700 years from now, I would probably be wrong. I don’t know what is going to happen. But God knows everything. He knows exactly what will happen in the future.
During this Christmas season, take time to praise God. Thank Him for fulfilling His promise to send His Son, Jesus, to be “God with us.”
