The very first verse of the Bible in Genesis 1:1 [‘In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth … ] reveals to us that we are created by God.
Elohim is the great, infinite all-powerful God Who shows by His works that He is the Creator, Sustainer and Supreme Judge of the world. It is this Elohim Who progressively reveals Himself to us in His Divine Word. From knowing Him as an Omnificent, Omnipotent and Omniscient Being we learn in amazement that He is also Omnibenevolent.
He is Yahweh the Self-Existing and Unchanging One Who desires to be in a relationship with His creatures who are made in His image and likeness. And it is this Yahweh Who fulfils His own desire to be with us by sending down His Son Jesus as Emmanuel.
The very mention of the name Emmanuel brings comfort to our weary hearts because the name Emmanuel which is applied by the evangelist Matthew to Jesus is the fulfilment of God’s promise to His loving children.
God promised deliverance to Judah in the time of the prophet Isaiah and He fulfilled His Divine Word ‘to be with them always’ through the birth of Jesus, His Only Begotten Son. Matthew reminds us of the fulfilment of this promise again at the conclusion of his gospel, in the last words of Jesus to His disciples “I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
Why does God promise to be with us? Why does He want to be with us? God’s Word provides us with blessed answers to these questions.
Our Loving Father God knows that children are constantly in need of the parents presence, whether they admit it or not. And that is why our Everloving Father promises to be with us every moment of our lives in this world.
He wants to be with us to share His love. To protect us from the ways of the world. To guide us in the paths of wisdom and holiness. To comfort and console us when we are in trouble. To anoint and empower us as we battle the evil forces in the world.
Elohim – Yahweh – Jesus – Emmanuel
And through Emmanuel Elohim Ministries we try to bring you to experience this wonderful Loving God through our various ministries.
God has blessed me along with my team to go to different villages very specially on “Lenten” days to proclaim the Word of God. We are privileged to work with Rev. Fr. Greenway (Mill Hill Fathers) and Rev. Sr. Joachim FMM, Jeeva Jala Nilayam, Vikarabad. Whole year we used to go to different Christian and non-Christian villages and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Though we have faced many problems, yet we didn’t stop the spreading of the Gospel Values. We could conduct Special programs, like, Carol singing, preparing these people for the Holy Sacraments on Christmas, Good Friday and Easter. We could experience the power of God in our Village Ministry because the Mother Church has supported us by administering the Sacraments like: Baptism, Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist and even Matrimony.
