Immanuel - God With Us

  1. 1.
  2. 2. “…and they shall call his name Immanuel.&quot;<br />Matthew 1.23; ESV<br />
  3. 3. “Immanuel”<br />It is more than a name, it’s a promise.<br />It is a promise of the present and future.<br />It is not a conclusion of a promised prophecy, but the reality of a sacred life.<br />
  4. 4. The Security of “Immanuel”<br />“The Lord is my Shepherd; <br />I shall not want.”<br />(Psalm 23)<br />
  5. 5. The Security of “Immanuel”<br />“As the deer pants for flowing streams,<br />so pants my soul for you, O God.”<br />(Psalm 42)<br />
  6. 6. The Security of “Immanuel”<br />“…I will never leave you<br />nor forsake you.”<br />(Hebrews 13.5; ESV)<br />
  7. 7. The Security of “Immanuel”<br />Hebrews 13.5<br />To give a literal translation is scarcely possible; it would run in this way: “No, I will not leave thee; no, neither will I not utterly forsake thee.”<br />(Adam Clarke’s Commentary on Hebrews; e-Sword Electronic Edition)<br />
  8. 8. The Security of “Immanuel”<br />&quot;The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; <br />what can man do to me?&quot; <br />(Hebrews 13.6; ESV)<br />
  9. 9. The Security of “Immanuel”<br />God knows the hair on our heads.<br />(Matthew 10:30)<br />
  10. 10. The Security of “Immanuel”<br />God knows our needs. <br />(Matthew 6.19-34)<br />God knows we need help. <br />(Hebrews 4.15)<br />
  11. 11. “Immanuel”<br />“God with us.”<br />Not simply God is here.<br />Not God is alive.<br />But God IS WITH US!<br />
  12. 12. “…and they shall call his name Immanuel.&quot;<br />Matthew 1.23; ESV<br />
