Emmanuel Has Come

Israel labored under oppression in Biblical times. It cried out for the Promised Messiah. Yet, unable to discern that He would have a first and then a second coming, they failed to recognize Him.

This haunting hymn, however, reminds me that Christ will rescue His true people, Jews and Gentiles alike, from the ultimate oppression of sin and eternal damnation. His promises to Israel’s faithful remnant extends to those of us who, although we are Gentiles, believe in Him as a result of His grace.  As we await His return, let’s rejoice that He came to Israel the first time.
