A virgin will give birth to a Son
Long ago, around 700 BC the prophet Isaiah wrote;
“the Lord Himself shall give you a sign:
be perceptive, a virgin will become pregnant,
and give birth to a Son,
and shall call His name Immanuel.”
Isaiah 7:14 HSV
Immanuel: a Hebrew word that means, “God is with us”.
by David M. Cook
Long ago God gave us a sign. A sign that gives us an understanding who the Messiah is. Around seven hundred years before the birth of Jesus this prophecy was given, “a virgin will become pregnant, and give birth to a Son”. This is indeed an amazingly unique sign given to us by the Lord Himself! One of the names of Messiah is ‘Immanuel’, a Hebrew word that means, “God is with us”. Immanuel had a most unique birth…a virgin birth!
