SCRIPTURE:Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.-Isaiah 7:14
Each of the four Gospel accounts of Jesus’ life were addressed to a unique audience—Matthew’s account being written for Jewish readers. Fifteen times in Matthew the author refers to Old Testament prophecies being “fulfilled” through the birth, life, and ministry of Jesus. This emphasis on fulfillment was to convince Jewish readers that Jesus was the promised Messiah.
One of the plainest instances of Matthew’s purpose is found in Matthew 1:22: “So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet [Isaiah].” Matthew was referring to the prophecy that a virgin would bear a Son as a sign that God was with the people (Immanuel). And Matthew wrote that Mary was the virgin and Jesus was the Son who was “God with us” (1:23). Matthew wanted his readers to know not only that Jesus was the prophesied Messiah but also that God fulfills His promises.
Just as God kept His promise two thousand years ago, so He will keep His promises today. He is still Immanuel—God with us—and we can trust Him.
Let God’s promises shine on your problems.
