The Birth of a Miracle. Luke 1:26-37 The birth of Jesus Christ was a miracle. The miracle of the birth of Jesus is that He was virgin-born.The virgin birth is one of the great truths of the Bible. No greater height of prophetic truth did ever a prophet rise when Isaiah declared that Jesus was be born of a virgin. For hundreds of years the virgin birth was revealed, but the hour came when the virgin birth became a reality. This child was a baby with an earthly mother, but no earthly father. This child was a baby that had a heavenly Father, but no earthly mother. This child was a virgin born child!Whose blood was in the Lord Jesus? It was the very blood of God! The result was, He was sinless, and therefore being sinless, He could be our Substitute!
Why is it so dreadful to trust and delight in creatures? Isaiah 31–32 prepares us for the first serial reading in public worship on the Lord's Day. In these twenty-nine verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that trusting and delighting in creatures is foolish, not only because of how devastatingly they will fail us, but because the Lord is an infinitely able Helper and an infinitely pleasant Delight.

In Isaiah 50:4–11, we read the third of the four servant songs found in the book of Isaiah. In this third song, we have a picture of Christ, who will face suffering, but who will be vindicated before His enemies. Mr. Paul Tamras preaches the disciple servant, the obedient servant, and Jesus' bold determined obedience in the midst of darkness. This message calls all believers to trust on the "Lord God" in all circumstances of life. "Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the voice of his servant? Let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God."
God became flesh and lived among us. Not only does He understand us as our sovereign, omniscient Creator, He understands us by having become one of us. He lived as one of us, knowing the temptations we face, the pain we suffer, and the joy experienced by doing the Father's will. Jesus is not distant from us, but goes through life with us, and is fully trustworthy to accomplish all He has promised.
The Importance of God's Name. A Name Like No Other. Exodus 3:1-6,9-15.God's name reveals he is the all-powerful God whom we can completely trust.God's name reveals His righteousness of His nature.Whoever calls on Jesus name will be saved.His name encourages us to trust Him with our well being.God is a holy God we are to approach with reverential fear.vv.1-6. We can trust that God will do what He says he will do. vv. 9-12. God's name reflects Hi Sovereign character that draws us into a trusting relationship with him. vv.13-15Moses fled from Egypt to the backside of the desert when he took the life of an Egyptian taskmaster to save an Israelite slave.Moses became a shepherd instead of a prince from Egypt.God had plans for Moses to lead his people out of bondage to freedom.God's name carries more importance than all other names of history.When God called Moses to lead his people out of Egypt, Moses needed to know the One sending Him.God revealed an important aspect of His nature through His name: "I AM THAT I AM". God was saying to Moses, "I have always been and will always be.I am the present tense God of the Hebrews who has the right to call them out and set you apart to lead them."We live in a world of unbelief and skepticism. People are ignorant of God, and they question God's existence and power to save and deliver man. This fact should not stir us to reject God's call; rather, it should stir us to declare God's power to save and deliver people. People need God; they need to be delivered and saved from the enslavement and death of this world. Therefore, we must declare the power of God to save and deliver them.
What does the prophecy in Isaiah 7 really mean when Isaiah speaks of a son being born to a virgin and His name being Immanuel? This incredible prophecy points towards God doing something miraculous and supernatural on behalf of His people. While the prophecy is meant to comfort the remnant of God, it also serves as judgment to those who deny Him.
