“Emmanuel; God is with us”
June 2, 2023
Dear Children of God, how are you? How is life at home and at school? Are you being obedient, faithful and brave? Are you helping out your parents, elder brothers and sisters, elderlies at house chorus as well? Do you obey them when they command you to behave and be disciplined at home and at Church? Children, it is a Christians behavior to obey your parents and elder ones. It also pleases God.
Children, when we make God happy and be pleased, He will be present in our lives. He will help us in our hardships, take all the pain and sorrow that happen in our lives. For example, if we have hard time in understanding our education, and pray to Him asking His help, He will make our mind bright and help us understand the course our teacher teach us. If we become very sick and ask His forgiveness, He will heal us. When we get hurt whilst our friends disappoint us, He comforts us and ease our pain.
Children, the mercy of God and marvelous work is endless! He loves His children dearly that He died for us upon the cross. We celebrate His work of salvation in the “Era of Resurrection” for fifty days until the Fast of Apostle’s starts and on this year is on Genbot 28, 2015 (June 5, 2023 G.C)
However, the beginning of all His miraculous work, starts at the announcement of Saint Gabriel when he said, “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” (Matthew 1:23)
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was born from our Holy Mother Saint Mary to be with us humans and save us from eternal fire that is hell. That is why He is named “Emmanuel; God is with us.”
Children, whilst Lord Jesus was on earth, He ate, drink and talked with the apostles and the Israeli people as well. He did all this to show His mercy, love and kindness. He also taught His holy words which is “The Gospel” in guidance through Christian life. His words have brought hope, peace and unity.
After His ascension on the fortieth days of His resurrection, He send Holy Spirit that descended upon the apostles which miraculously made them talk 72 different languages so that they would travel the world to teach the gospel. And they did; in which they wrote in the Holy Bible for the next coming generations to learn until today.
Lord Jesus become man to free human race from enemy Satan that was attempting to dive us all into hell where there is only punishment in fire forever.
Dear Children, we shall always remember the work of our Lord who gave His life for our salvation. He is our savior that gave us life. If it were not for His crucifixion, we would all end up in hell after we depart from this earth on our elderliness age.
So children, if we want for our Lord to be with us, we shall believe in the work of salvation that is done upon the Holy Cross and seek to find His love within our heart. He has loved us so much that made Him give His life; so, we shall love Him as much for Him to be (live) with us!
May God, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be with us, Amen!
