Messiah In Tears

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

The Hebrew word Immanuel or in English Immanuel is actually a sentence: Im means ‘with,’ anu means ‘us,’ and El means ‘God’. God is with us. Messiah’s name is not just a name, it’s a Hebrew sentence. Whatever He did in His life, He was ‘God is with us’ doing it. In John 11 it says, “Messiah, wept.” Messiah in sorrow and tears was Immanuel in sorrow and tears. That spells out a message— “God is with us in sorrow and tears.”

Having God in your life doesn’t mean you’ll be exempt from sorrow and tears, but it means you’ll never be alone. God will be with you in all things, at all times. Even when you feel far from His presence, His presence is never far. For God is with you in your sorrows and tears. Even in your deepest pain, He will be just as much there as He ever was, and even more so. You will find that if you look, He is there as Immanuel weeping with you and loving you, just beyond your tears.

Today’s Mission – Spend time in the presence of God today. Be still and know that He is with you in all things.

Not one tear is lost!

“The Tears of Jesus!” 1884

On opening ancient tombs in Palestine, many a tear-bottle has been found, which was a repository for the tears of the mourners, and was then placed in the tomb beside the one who was laid there.

Just so does our heavenly Father gather all the tears of His redeemed children. “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in Your bottle. You have recorded each one in Your book!” Psalm 56:8

Not one tear is lost! Not one sorrow is unheeded. Not one grief is left unbefriended. All these tears are noted by our merciful Father above!

We have a Savior who has known our sorrows, and by His tears can heal every wound that sin has made. “In all their affliction, He was afflicted.” When He was on earth, He wept with those that wept–and He is still the same. We can think of the tears He shed more than eighteen centuries ago–and know that at this hour He is the same loving and sympathizing Friend!

There is no sympathy like that of Jesus! It flows in full flood toward His believing children. Just as the rising tide rushes in and pours through every cranny and nook on the shore where admittance can be gained–so does Christ’s tender loving-kindness enter the hearts of His people.
