ISAIAH: BEHOLD THE SALVATION OF IMMANUEL
The Sovereign LORD of the universe alone is due all worship and praise. He is Immanuel – God with Us. He has revealed His glory and majesty and is the Righteous Judge who warns from heaven. Immanuel took the punishment for sin on Himself in order to bring peace and redemption. He calls people to turn from sin and receive His mercy and grace. He is the Eternal King who will rule in righteousness on a new earth forever and ever.
