Actual Uses of the Name Immanuel

An OT name given to Jesus Christ, meaning “God with us”.


Isaiah 7:14

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


The name was given originally to a child of Isaiah’s day who would signify God’s salvation and judgment for Judah.


Isaiah 8:7-10

Now therefore, behold, the Lord brings up over them

The waters of the River, strong and mighty—

The king of Assyria and all his glory;

He will go up over all his channels

And go over all his banks.

8He will pass through Judah,

He will overflow and pass over,

He will reach up to the neck;

And the stretching out of his wings

Will fill the breadth of Your land, O Immanuel.

9“Be shattered, O you peoples, and be broken in pieces!

Give ear, all you from far countries.

Gird yourselves, but be broken in pieces;

Gird yourselves, but be broken in pieces.

10Take counsel together, but it will come to nothing;

Speak the word, but it will not stand,

For God is with us.”


The original fulfillment of the Immanuel prophecy would bring judgment on Judah


Matthew 1:22-23

22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23 Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”


Isaiah’s prophecy is fulfilled through the virginal conception of Jesus Christ.


The Virgin Mary bore a Son and they called Him Immanuel meaning “God with us.”

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
