The Sign of Immanuel – December 23, 2007

The Sign of Immanuel

Texts: Isaiah 7:1-16, Matthew 1:18-25, Psalm 95

Recognizing that the prophecy in Isaiah 7 is fulfilled (in part) in 730BC and fulfilled (in completeness) in the birth of Jesus, Pastor Jon looks at the lessons we might learn from King Ahaz’s response to the foreign policy crisis he found himself facing. When we face crisis, may we first turn toward God, may we stand firm in our faith, and may we be prepared to hear a word from God at all times.
