Emmanuel -God With Us

Emmanuel means “God with us.” But, what does it mean to say God is with us?

In the book of Isaiah, the prophet foretold the coming of Messiah Yeshua, Jesus Christ:

“Behold, the virgin will conceive. When she is giving birth to a son, she will call his name Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14 TLV)

And in the book of Matthew, the prophecy of Isaiah 7:14 is fulfilled as well as the meaning of Immanuel told:

“…and they shall call His name Immanuel, which means God with us.”Β (Matt. 1:23 TLV)

Matthew 1:23Β  is not only a fulfillment of prophecy and the definition of Emmanuel, but also a promise. It promises that those that accept and believe in Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, as Lord and Savior will know that God is with them.

So what does it mean to me that God is with me?

It means Do not be afraid-(Isaiah 41:10, Psalm 56:3, Joshua 1:9, Psalm 118:6)

To know that as His Child, He blesses and protects your coming out and going inΒ  (Deuteronomy 28:6, Psalm 121:6)

Believing that If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31 TLV)

And most importantly it means that Jesus Loves you!

“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love.” (Jeremiah 31:2 TLV)

And remember I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

 

-Matthew 28:20 TLV
