The Coming Messiah IV: God’s Description of Immanuel

There are many passages of Scripture where God describes Himself to us. This week we are focusing on four such descriptions of God describing the coming Immanuel in Isaiah 9.

God made a promise not just the Immanuel would come to rescue His people, but that He would come in such a way that He would be known by these realities.
