A close look at meanings of the letters of Immanuel utilizing both the Hebrew Alphabet and the Alphabet used in Abraham's time, shows that the name Immanuel, which is often interpreted "God with us" has a wonderful significance for us.
The name speaks of the urging of the Strong Leader through mighty knowledge and insight (God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit) securing life.—The Strong Leader is Jesus Christ.
Christ came to earth for us through the mighty knowledge and insight of God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit and secured life for us, by dying for us at Calvary. It was the greatest action of love that has ever been seen.
Not only is God with us, but He has secured life for us through His Son, Jesus!
All He asks is for us to believe in Him. John 1:12 says “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”
Now when you hear the name Immanuel, remember it speaks of why Christ came to earth. He wants us to believe in Him, and when we do, truly God is with us.
