Emmanuel

Matthew 1 23

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 1:23

The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Emmanuel which means “God with us”.

The prophecy by Isaiah, which was inspired by God, revealed the birth of Jesus by a virgin and that they would call Him Emmanuel, which means God with us. The Gospel of Matthew interprets this as the birth of the Messiah and the fulfillment of scripture in Jesus. This was all part of God’s divine plan for the salvation of man and the restoration of fellowship between God and man. How wonderful to know that God loves us so much He sent His only Son to dwell with us and will be with us until the end of the world.
