Emmanuel—God with Us
We are so blessed because of Emmanuel (God is with us).
Emmanuel, Imanuel, Emanuel, Manuel in hebrew means God is with us. Immanuel not only says that God is with us but it expresses the wonder of the incarnation, that God “became flesh and made his dwelling among us”.
God is among us.
his presence is always with us all the time.
What an amazing blessing to know that God is with us.
Matthew 1:23 “’Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel’ (which is translated, God with us).”
The bible refers to Jesus with 5 different names:
5 Names of Jesus in the New Testament and What They Mean; can be found in the link below.
Of these five names of Jesus in the new testament, one specifically is Emmanuel, which means God with us.
Isaiah 7:14. speaks of the naming of the naming of the virgin child as Emmanuel “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.”
In the Recovery Version of the Bible, note 2 for Emmanuel explains its meaning:
“Jesus was the name given by God, whereas Emmanuel, meaning God with us, was the name by which man called Him. Jesus the Savior is God with us. He is God, and He is also God incarnated to dwell among us (John 1:14). He is not only God but God with us.”
Jesus is our God incarnated. The blessings of him being our Emanuel is not only for the Jews but the gentiles, the Samaritans and all whom believe in him. He died to accomplish eternal redemption for all. WE all have opportunity to join him in heaven. Best yet, he shows how he is with us.
We are blessed to have him always be with us.
We are blessed to never walk alone.
We are blessed for he knows what it feels to be in the flesh.
We are blessed because he loves us.
No matter where you go, no matter what you do, no matter what people say, no matter what life throws at you….God is always with us.
Thank you Father for being with us. Thank you father for fulfilling the prophesies. Thank you father for your love and always taking care of me. Thank our father for being merciful. Love you always. Amen.
