Think of this: “The Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”…”Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for his will save his people from their sins. All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: ‘Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear s son, and they shall call his name Immanuel’ (which means, God with us).'” (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:20-23)
Pray on this: Our Father, for Israel’s sake we pray, “O come, O come Immanuel and ransom captive Israel.” We pray this for we know for there to be peace in Jerusalem, the Prince of Peace must reign–God, indeed, must be with us. Maranatha, come quickly LORD Jesus!
The special version of “O Come O Come Emmanuel brought tears to my eyes. Merry Christmas to you and Pat Jim. You both are in my daily prayers. Merry Christmas to all of you.
