Emmanuel is a Strong and Mighty Tower, the righteous run into it and are safe. Emmanuel is hope to the hopeless and strength to the weak and weary. Emmanuel means “God is With Us”, because when Jesus was born of a virgin, God came down to live among mortal men and to bring life to those who are dead in their trespasses and sin. We pray that you will find hope and comfort as you listen today to the first portion of Pastor Ray Viola’s Christmas Eve message from 2016.
