But, ah, we have here an act of the living God.
The Holy Ghost overshadowed Mary. And the Holy Ghost takes the place of the human father. Was it not the Holy Ghost who brooded upon the face of the deep when the worlds were created? ...Bow your head and soul and spirit: God is at work to work salvation.
And Jesus is born. His name indicates exactly what I am trying to tell you. Jesus means “Jehovah salvation”. ... In that name we taste a salvation that shall outlive time and space and history. The Isaiah version of the name Immanuel. God is very close to us, near us. what does that mean, beloved? It means that we are saved.
Blessed Christmas! ~ Rev. Vos, Unspeakable Gift, pg 24, 25.
