Immanuel!

Posted 12/22/2019

Sunday Morning Message by Pastor Lee Evans

Immanuel!

 

Isaiah 7:14

14  Therefore, the Lord himself will give you a sign: See, the virgin will conceive, have a son, and name him Immanuel.

Matthew 1:18-23

18  The birth of Jesus Christ came about this way: After his mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, it was discovered before they came together that she was pregnant from the Holy Spirit. 19  So her husband Joseph, being a righteous man, and not wanting to disgrace her publicly, decided to divorce her secretly. 20  But after he had considered these things, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying…

 

“Immanuel”

God…

•Isaiah - The Lord, “Adonai”

“Immanuel”, El, Almighty God

•Matthew – “God”- “logos” as in John 1

God...

1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2  He was with God in the beginning. 3  All things were created through him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created. John 1: 1-3 

WITH…

14  The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We observed his glory, the glory as the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14

5  You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. 6  Though He was God, He did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. 7  Instead, He gave up His divine privileges; He took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When He appeared in human form, 8  He humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.

Phil. 2:5-8 

He Came to US - He Died FOR US

He seeks to Give LIFE to US!

His Spirit DWELLS in US!

He will NEVER LEAVE US!

  
5  …For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." 6  So we may boldly say: "The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?“  Hebrews 13:5-6 (NKJV) 

  
God With Us…

  
10  Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with  my victorious right hand.

Isaiah 41:10 (NLT2)
