This Bible Study jumps into the intrinsic significance of the name Emmanuel, God with us. Today, God being with us is certainly for our encouragement as believers. But God being WITH us means much more than just God being for us.
The attached slides first speak of the meaning of Emmanuel, “God with Us”. Then They go on to speak of the Presence of the Triune God, the Spirit of Reality. Certainly, God being with His people is a theme throughout the whole book of Matthew and even the whole New Testament.
The deepest appreciation and most intimate application of God being with us is His dwelling in our spirit. We must know our spirit, the dwelling place of God today. This is what is covered in the final slide. It is covered in a way that college students can relate.
God’s intention, from His dealings with His people in the Old Testament, through the birth of Jesus as Emmanuel and His wonderful salvation, is that He wants to be one with man. Although not included in the slides, we leave you with this powerful verse from the concluding sentences of the whole Bible.
Revelation 21:3 And I heard a loud voice out of the throne, saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will tabernacle with them, and they will be His peoples, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.
