2004-05-01 - Virgin Birth
The Jesus the Carpenter - His Address Series, Part 9
Before we start, I want to let you know, those who have shared prayer needs, I am praying for and with you. Today, We will see another prophecy regarding an aspect of Jesus Birth. Jesus will be born of a virgin.
The Prophecy: Isaiah 7:14 (Time Period 742 BC)
Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. (NIV)
The Fulfillment: Matthew 1:18 - 21 (Time Period 5 BC)
Matthew 1:18-21 This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. 20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." (NIV)
We will continue with another prophecy next time, as we continue to identify the address of Jesus the Carpenter.
May God Bless You My Friends,
