179 - Shall call his name Immanuel [God with us]

the Prophet Isaiah.
Chareen's Thoughts
  • Jotham dies. Ahaz becomes king and walked in sin.  Due to this sin the Lord handed them over to Pekah and the king of Israel. 
  • The Lord declares the conception of Jesus to Ahaz through Isaiah. Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, the young woman who is unmarried and a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel [God with us].(A) 15 Butter and curds and wild honey shall he eat when he knows [enough] to refuse the evil and choose the good. Isaiah 7:15-16
  • Isaiah speaks about the future hope and future king and Judah's invasion and comming chastisement.

How sad to read that within a nation they took oneanother captive.  Makes me think about how as Christians we hold one another captive. One of the main ways is when we expect each other to live by our own set of laws and rules. We read the word and apply a rule to ourselves and then expect everyone else to live by it.

Key:  Set others free from living by my rules of right and wrong.
