God's Special Gift by Ernest Easley

God's Special Gift
Dr. Ernest L. Easley
Isaiah 7.14; 9.6-7
December 22, 2002

As you are turning to the Old Testament book of
Isaiah... I want to congratulate you for surviving the
Christmas rush! Christmas has become a race to see
which gives out first: your money or your feet!

And my... how the children have caught on! I
read this week about some children who figured out
that they would get more gifts this Christmas if they
hung stretch stockings over their chimneys! Somebody
once said that "Christmas is a time for exchanging a
lot of things you can't afford for a lot of things you
don't want!"

Well... on this Sunday before Christmas... with
gifts on everybody's mind... from Isaiah 7... I want
to talk to you about God's Special Gift. In fact...
the prophet Isaiah announced God's Special Gift some
700 years before the gift arrived!

Now most of us struggle knowing that we are just
48 hours away from getting our hands on those special
gifts under the tree! But when Isaiah made his
announcement of God's Special Gift that was on it's
way... the waiting period was 700 years!

Well... let's see what we can discover about this
special gift was and what His gift means to us today!
Here is a gift that never wears out nor ever runs
down! It is...

God's Special Gift
Isaiah 7.14

Now what the Old Testament predicts... the New
Testament presents! What the Old Testament
promises... the New Testament produces! What the Old
Testament anticipates... the New Testament
authenticates!

The Old Testament cries out: "Someone is Coming!"
The New Testament cries out: Someone has Come." And
that is what God's Special Gift is all about! And
that is what we are thinking about this morning
beginning here in Isaiah 7!

Now in thinking of God's Special Gift... think
with me first about...


I. The Conception of His Special Gift.

Verse 14, "Therefore the Lord Himself will give
you a sign: Be ...
