It’s Prepositional

 I love the Book of Isaiah, with its imagery and mercy all intermingled with the commands for purity of soul and justice for the poor.  Isaiah is the great Book where we find the Messiah most prevalent in the Old Testament.  We quote it often at Advent and at Easter; we quote the most favored Scripture that says of Messiah, “behold His name shall be called Emmanuel which means ‘God is with us’.”

That is indeed Good News for all – God is with us.  And that “with us” my friends has to do with God being among us and beside us.  And with this Scripture we see the key to the Good News is grammatical: the Good News is all prepositional!

A preposition links nouns, pronouns and phrases to other words in a sentence. The word or phrase that the preposition introduces is called the object of the preposition.  A preposition usually indicates the temporal, spatial or logical relationship of its object to the rest of the sentence…”

God is FOR us.
God is WITH us.
God is WITHIN us.
God is AMONG us.
God is INSIDE us.
God is BEFORE us.
God is BEHIND us.
God is BENEATH us.
God is BESIDE us.
God is BETWEEN us.
God is BEYOND us…and
God is INTO us.

Jesus is the Divine English teacher, teaching us through His very being that God is indeed prepositional.
