Isaiah 7:14 etc. – ISAIAH’S CHRISTMAS MESSAGE
Isaiah is a great book of prophecy. One of Isaiah’s favorite topics is the Lord Jesus Christ. Here are three prophecies concerning his coming, which will help us remember the true meaning of the Christmas season.
THE COMING OF JESUS – Isaiah 7:14-16
The promise is given of a virgin conceiving and bringing forth a son. His name will be called “Immanuel”, or “God with us.” See Micah 5:2.
THE CHARACTER OF JESUS – Isaiah 9:6
“The Mighty God”
“The Everlasting Father (“Father of Eternity”)”
“The Prince of Peace”
THE CONDUCT OF JESUS – Isaiah 61:1-3
You will note that there are parts of this passage that refer to Jesus’ first coming to earth, and parts that refer to His second coming. Those things mentioned in verses 1-2a (ending with “To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”) refer to the first coming. Those things mentioned in the remainder of the passage deal with His second coming.
