He Came
by PamFord Davis

I'm not a speed reader; yet, I do often skim as I read. I may hit the high points but miss treasures to be mined within. Recognizing this passage from Isaiah as a familiar Christmas passage, I might be tempted to hasten to the conclusion.

That would be a shame

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this (Isaiah 9:6-7 KJV)."

At Christmas, we celebrate the fulfillment of this promise, birth of this child. JESUS is the promised Son of God.

"Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14 KJV)."

He came unto us, to youto me.

"Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us (Matthew 1:22-23 KJV)."
