Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
In the Old Testament the Lord God used prophets to foretell of events to come; the prediction of the coming birth of the Savior was no exception. The prophet Isaiah made this starling prediction of the coming Savior that His birth would be of a virgin. Isaiah provided the name of the Christ child-Immanuel which means God with us.
For Christ to fulfill His mission of providing salvation to all who believe He had to be human and divine; therefore, the Virgin Mary was His earthly mother and God the Holy Spirit as His father. It is in Christ that humanity and divinity met.
It is noteworthy to say, Isaiah's prophecy was prophesied just as God instructed him because in God's own time this prophecy would be fulfilled and in order for God's plan to be accomplished the prophecy would have to be fulfilled.
It is too noteworthy to say that many during this era were patiently looking forward to the promised Messiah. Let us be mindful of whom God is and everything He does is timely and right.
Christ being the perfect Lamb of God was slain from the foundation of the world and God the Father knew He would have to sacrifice His only begotten Son to redeem man from sin.
The prophesied Christ came one Christmas morning fulfilling the prophecy.
