Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
In preparation for the birth of Christ, our Lord and Savior Jesus, I felt it necessary to remind everyone that Christ’s birth was prophesied many generations before it was fulfilled.
In Isaiah’s prophecy, he was precise in the foretelling of Christ’s birth; He would be born of a Virgin woman and provided the name of the Christ child, which was Immanuel, that means God with us. Christ is God the Father’s only begotten Son; therefore, God is with us through Jesus Christ, who was present at the beginning with God during creation (John 1:1).
Therefore, as we prepare for the celebration of this glorious day, let us remember why and who we are glorifying, and we give gifts in commemoration of the greatest gift ever given-salvation through Jesus Christ.
Hail to the king of glory.
