Ahaz did indeed ask for a sign in verse 11 because of the fear of impending invasion from Israel's enemies...but you missed something in your point.
The following passage where the Lord answers Ahaz' question DOES indicate future prophecy.
Read verses 14 through 17. The Lord plainly states that BEFORE Immanuel (Jesus) which translated...means 'God With Us'...will be revealed...the two kings whom they fear will have their reigns destroyed AND the nation of Israel (House of David) will also fall into woes...all prior to Jesus coming on the scene.
If you are going to debate the veracity of Christ's claims that He is God by using the word He himself inspired, at least study the whole passage before picking one verse in an attempt to refute Him.
