His most significant prophecy was God's .............. www.columbushospice.com promise to send His own Son into the world as the Messiah. "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign: Behold, a vir- Serving Ten Counties gin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name ;d:; ii Since 1979 .Immanuel." (Isaiah 7:14 KJV) His very name, Immanuel, means "God with us." God has always been with man spiritually but God's coming into the world as a man is hard for people to grasp. This has madeit possible for everyone who believes in Him to have a close and personal relationship with God. This promise was fulfilled in the birth of Jesus. "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoul- der: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6 KJV) O Join us in Sunday School on November 12, in our study, enti- tled "God With Us" as we learn how God's promise impacts peo- ple in different ways. For unbelievers it is a call to receive God's gift of eternal life by faith in Jesus as God's Son. For believers it is a challenge to praise God for sending His Son and to tell oth- I ers about Him. Children and youth of C.Y.M. meet every Wednesday from 6:30-8:00 p.m. for recreation and Bible lessons. Prayer meeting for adults begins at 7:00 p.m.
