Isaiah 7 in a Nutshell

Judah is having some trouble with it's neighbors and a King Ahaz was worried that they might be able to cause some real trouble and he was afraid, very afraid. So Yahowah sent Isaiah to meet Ahaz and to calm him down. When Isaiah meets up with Ahaz he tells him Yahowah says that you don't have anything to worry about, and to prove it, ask Yahowah for a sign, any sign, and Ahaz says, no, I'm good, I don't need a sign. Then Isaiah says, well since you won't ask for a sign, Yahowah will give you one anyway. My wife, she is pregnant, and when the child is born, she will call his name Immanuel, and before the child knows to do good or evil, these two clowns that want to kill us all will be dead.

"For this cause the Lord himself will give you a sign; a young woman is now with child, and she will give birth to a son, and she will give him the name Immanuel. Butter and honey will be his food, when he is old enough to make a decision between evil and good. For before the child is old enough to make a decision between evil and good, the land whose two kings you are now fearing will have become waste." Isaiah 7:14-16 BBE

And you know what, it happened exactly as Isaiah said it would happen.

How, let me ask you this, where in this short term prophecy does it indicate that this is anything other than what Isaiah says it is?

Now lets compare with Matthew

Isaiah Matthew
The prophecy is happening right now It was a future prophecy
a young woman has conceived (my wife) a virgin shall conceive
she will name him Immanuel
(God is with us)
they will call him Immanuel
(God with us)
she named him Immanuel he named him Joshua
Yahowah will save Judah he shall save from sin

Now I ask you, is this not an accurate summary? It is, and everybody acknowledges that it is. The response I have gotten from Matthews defenders is, "Well, Matthew was inspired, so he could change the prophecy." What? You are kidding me right? Well, he may have been inspired, but it wasn't from Yahowah, for Yahowah never changes. The fact is, Matthew intentionally miss-quoted Isaiah to try prove his position, and by that very act, has proven his position to be a fraud.
