The Advent Of Jesus Emmanuel Through Isaiah
The fortelling Of Jesus by the prophet Isaiah is related to man by God through God's holy prophet.
Over 400 years before the birth of Jesus Christ, a man named Isaiah, is chosen of God as a prophet of God.
This is the first most important prophecy God delivers that is most important to man and to us as Christian. It is God's announcement of God's forthcoming Messiah.
ISAIAH: 9:2; AND 9:6
(v.2) "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined."
(v.6) "For unto us, a child is born, unto us, a child is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulders: and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."
This was Isaiah's prophecy to the people of Israel 400 years before the immaculate conception by Mary, as revealed by God through the angel Gabriel.
Our heavenly Father was pre-setting the stage for the first part of His two part plan to rebuild the bridge for man to return back to God in heaven again, the bridge which was destroyed through the willful sinful disobedience of Adam in the Garden of Eden thousands of years earlier.
Approximately 430 years passes by, and we can read from Matthew, one of Jesus Apostles and one of the Gospel Writers, where he too announces the Advent of Jesus in the following Scriptures.
MATTHEW: 1: 21-23;
"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from sin. Now all of this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of The Lord by the prophet saying, Behold a virgin shall be with child and bring forth a son and they shall call him Emmanuel, which being interpreted is God with us."
The Apostle Luke, a learned man, a physician also addresses the Avent of Jesus,Emmanuel in the following Scriptures.
LUKE: 1: vs. 26-28 and vs. 31-33; 35 and 38
vs. 26-28 "And in the (sixth month) the Angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the House of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou amongst women."
vs. 31-33; "And behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb and bring forth a son and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever and of his kingdom there shall be no end."
vs.35; "And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall over-shadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee, shall be called the Son of God."
vs.38; "And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word."
The existance of a Triune God is proven:
This event the birth of God in the form of a child, the birth of God's only beggotten son, proves God's love for his creation of man and His desire to have man's love.
It also establishes written proof that God although one God, has three distict members, as we see that God's Holy Ghost visits Mary in order for God the Father to give of Himself thus causing a virgin to be with child in the personage of Jesus the Son of God.
We see that when our Father Almighty God makes a promise of redemption to man through the prophesy of His prophet Isaiah, even though it takes over 400 years to perfectly align things the way they must be aligned, God does not fail to fulfill his prophecy or his promise. Almight God is a God of honour and keeps his promises no matter how long it takes, and when he does so Hes does so perfectly without flaw.
