The wait was over!
I absolutely love the fulfillment of prophecy that happens with Jesus’ arrival on the scene in human flesh. Over 300 prophecies would be fulfilled in His life on earth.
“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14 NIV)
“All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: ‘The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel’ (which means ‘God with us’).” (Matthew 1:22-23 NIV)
