Immanuel is a strong and mighty tower, the righteous run into it and are safe. Immanuel is hope to the hopeless and strength to the weak and weary. Immanuel 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 tresspasses 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 twenty sixteen.
