The prophet Isaiah spoke about a “messiah” 700-years before His birth. His name is Jesus Christ. And He is the long-awaited Immanuel, which means, “God with Us”! What a lot of people don’t understand, is what theologians call the theophany--A manifestation of the pre-incarnate Christ. In other words, Jesus kept popping into the picture throughout the entire Old Testament. This is going be a powerful message as you realize that Jesus has been with us since the beginning. And this is a great message to share this weekend before Christmas. So, if you have your Bible handy, let’s open them to Isaiah, chapter 7 for Pastor Mark Jobe and this edition of Bold Steps Weekend.
