The Power of Jesus’ Names
Session 1 - Immanuel
The name Immanuel originated within a context of pain, despair, loss, doubt, fear, and chaos. Immanuel came to a world in crisis. It is not merely a name to remember during Christmas as we sing carols and drink hot chocolate. No, Immanuel is a name of comfort when times are at their worst.
One of the first things you need to understand about Jesus is that no matter what you have gone through or are currently going through, He is with you. No matter how difficult the challenges you face, God is with you. No matter how many enemies attack you—whether internally or externally—God is with you. Whatever you are facing, struggling with, enduring, or exhausted from, God is with you. The birth of Jesus Christ is not only the introduction of our Savior into this world; it is also the introduction of God’s promise of victory and His presence in the midst of a painful reality we all know far too well.
Jesus is the eternal emulsifier. He is fully God. He is fully man. And by faith in Him, God and man are brought together.
If you belong to Jesus Christ, you’re walking around with God in the midst of your life!
This video segment was filmed at the location in Bethlehem where it is believed Jesus was born. As you will see in the video, the area is now built up with churches and elaborate decorations. Why do you think God would have Immanuel.
