The First Christmas: Matthew 1:23

“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 1:23). This was an announcement by the angel of the first Christmas. There are several promises that can be drawn from this verse that are extremely relevant to us and the church today.

Christmas Promises in Matthew 1:23

This Christmas and throughout the new year God desires to manifest Himself to us in a very special and powerful way. Let’s believe Him for it, walk in it and practice His presence daily. This is the message we must proclaim this Christmas and the year(s) to come, the promise of His eternal presence – “God with us.”
