"Emmanuel"

 

(Matthew 1:23) "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”

The Bible says, “They shall call his name Emmanuel.” Emmanuel means as the text indicates, “God with us.” The angel of the Lord told Joseph that he was to name the baby Jesus. Some would think this contradictory, but the meaning of the names indicated that the babe; by either name, was a fulfillment of prophetic utterances- The Son of God and God the Son. Jesus means Jehovah is the Savior. Both names clearly indicate that this is God manifested in the flesh. He truly is God with us!

Teresa and I wish each and every one a very Merry CHRISTmas.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Jeff
