Steadfast Trust.

December 11, 2022 Preacher: Pedro Samuel Series: Christmas Season

Topic: Christian Living, The Gospel Scripture: Isaiah 7:1–25

The oracle given to King Ahaz in this chapter is a message that challenges our faith. Is our faith strong enough to see us through crises? Are we secure in our faith? If not, perhaps we do not fully understand the Word of the LORD or the confirming sign He has given. Our text has been divided into 2 parts.

1. The Test of Trust (Isaiah 7:1-9)
2. The Promise to Trust (Isaiah 7:10-25)

True security from all danger (even judgement) comes by faith in God's supernatural provision of Immanuel. There is a glorious future promised by God through the Davidic Covenant; that future is guaranteed and confirmed through a divinely appointed birth that is completely unexpected and that is proof of God’s presence. So, God calls people to believe His word and find security in troubling times, in this life, and in the life to come. In the fullness of time, God sent forth His Son to be born of the Virgin Mary; this One is Immanuel in the true sense of the word. His birth confirmed that His word was trustworthy. Faith in Him guarantees participation in the glorious future of peace and righteousness.
