O Come, O Come, Emmanuel [Video]

 

“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.” – Isaiah 7:14

 

The promise of Emmanuel, God with us, is important to remember in a world filled with chaos and political confusion. Nations are struggling to maintain their identity; people groups are moving across the face of the earth; yet, God is with us – Emmanuel.

During Israel’s crisis and captivity, the Lord promised a sign of deliverance, faithfulness, and covenant promises–a Son, Emmanuel. In the classic Christmas carol, O Come, O Come Emmanuel, the minor chord of a lament resolves itself into a major chord of victory and triumph. Jesus came once, but we also rejoice that He will return again!

  1. Thank you so much, Bishop for sharing this with all of us who love and thank God for all that you have given in bringing these beautiful words of truth and honesty of God’s holy word. I look forward to the teachings of Advent and without it where would we be today?
