Isaiah 7:10-14 ( http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah%207:10-14&version=NKJV )
Dr. G. Campbell Morgan said of Christmas: “Here is the Ancient of Days becoming a babe in Bethlehem. Here is He who thunders in the Heavens, crying in the cradle. Here is the One who made all flesh now being made of flesh. Here is He who could summon the legions of angels and He’s wrapped in swaddling clothes … the Mighty God becoming a helpless child.”

This is the marvel and mystery of the virgin birth. Without the supernatural conception of Christ, there is no Christmas and no Christianity. We believe Jesus was miraculously born through Mary without the agency of a human father, having been conceived in her womb by the Holy Spirit. This explains: (1) our Lord’s dual nature as both God and man; and (2) His pure and sinless life. Jesus said, “Before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:58). He is the preexisting, self-existent, everlasting God whose goings forth are from old, even from eternity.
That’s why we sing His praise and worship His name. That’s why we say, as they did of old, “What manner of man is this!”
