Matthew 1:18-20

Matthew 1:18-20 (KJV)
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

While Jesus was on earth, he rode on an ass into Jerusalem, as it was prophesied of. All people will one day bow down to and worship the Lord God, if not in this life, but in judgement.

O Come Emmanuel

700 years after Isaiah, the prophesy of Immanuel was fulfilled. Unto Mary, and her husband Joseph, did the Lord Jesus come into this world.

Immanuel, God With Us

So to answer this question on who Immanuel was or meant to be, we will read from a portion of Isaiah, chapter 8.

For Unto Us A Child Is Born

Our Lord God did come as the prophesy was made. Jesus was born of Mary and Joseph, whom was a descendent of David.

The Prophesy And Fulfillment Of Immanuel

The prophesy of the Lord’s birth, in Isaiah 7 and 8, was fulfilled in Matthew 1. The wait was finally over. The birth of the Messiah had finally come to pass.

My Hope Is In Christ Alone

There is no one else that can do a work like Jesus can for our lives. He is our comforter when all seems lost. He overcomes the darkness and shines bright to guide us.

The Reason For Jesus’s Birth

We have much to be grateful for, for though we are fallen He gives us new life. He takes us in because of His great love. Our evil tendencies are replaced by righteous habits.
