Isaiah prophesized about Jesus coming over 700 hundred years before Jesus came. In his prophecy about the birth of Jesus in Isaiah 7 he wrote.
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
Immanuel- God with us. Jesus is God with us. Jesus became one of us, so he could become our Savior. This week we will celebrate his birth during Christmas. What the celebration is really about is Immanuel God with Us.
No matter what happens in this life, nothing can separate us from God, from Immanuel. Romans 8 says.
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

Romans 8 is a favorite love story; “nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” God is with us. Merry Christmas!🌺
A wonderful truth 🙂
Amen. When He came to earth it was to make His permanent abode with us. Thanks for this awesome reminder.
One day we will see him in all his glory 🙂
