Here is yet a 2nd look at some Old Testament prophecy fulfilled in the birth of Jesus.
Matthew 1: 22,23 says this: “So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
There are 3 Messianic prophecies fulfilled in verse 23…
1. Isaiah 7:14 – “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.”
2. Isaiah 9: 6,7 – “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”
3. Isaiah 8:10 – “Take counsel together, but it will come to nothing;
Speak the word, but it will not stand, For God is with us.”
