From the Throne to the Manger

Immanuel - God With Us

There are many fanciful stories in the world, full of mystery, imagination and mystique. Movies have been made and books have been sold, but nothing tops the story of Christmas and the birth of Jesus. What makes this story so unique and still the number one best selling book (the Bible) of all time?


I believe it is because this story is true. It’s built on the revelation of God, backed by historical eyewitnesses, supported by truthful accounts that are miraculous in nature, and it has proven to have life-changing spiritual power! We call it the Gospel – the story of Jesus. 


This Christmas we examine “The Infant Who Changed the Word” in four messages that will conclude in our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, December 24, 2023 at 6:00 pm. 


Today’s message is “From the Throne to the Manger” and explores the miracle of the Incarnation as the Word of God is made flesh and dwells among us here on earth. The Creator of the Universe becomes a part of His own creation. The Author of Life is born of a woman as a tiny little baby who would change the world. It is the wonder of His name – “Immanuel – God with us.”
