God With Us Yes , God is with us even in our darkest hour . Remember the promise Matthew 1: 23 The virgin will be pregnant . She will have a son, and they will name Him " Emmanuel " which means God with us . The name Immanuel appeared two thousand years ago and the same Hebrew name appears today in the same form . " Immanu" - means " with us" " El " refers to " Elohim" or God . Notice this is not an " above us God " or "somewhere God'" or " distant God " ( referring to that song " God is watching from a distance " ) But He is our God who came as the " With us God" . Wow, God is with us . Do you really grasp the consept? God is not a " God with the rich " or God with the religious . But " God is wih us " All of us , Canadians , Americans , Germans , Russians , etc. - every walk of life , taxi drivers , truck drivers, nurses , doctors and thelist goes on . Grasp the scripture: " GOD IS WITH US " You will never be alone . Isaiah 7:14 14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
