11/03/11 IMMANUEL GOD IS
VISION: I saw the scripture where it speaks
about Immanuel, God with us.
Isa 7:14-17 NKJV
Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign:
Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and
shall call His name Immanuel. 15 Curds and honey He
shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and
choose the good. 16 For before the Child shall know to
refuse the evil and choose the good, the land that you
dread will be forsaken by both her kings.
REVELATION: I was thinking about Christ in us
the hope of glory and I suddenly had the thought: The
Holy Spirit is inside of us, but how much of is Jesus in
us? According to scripture, He knocks on the doors of
our hearts and we let Him in. By faith He dwells in our
hearts and then Christ must be fully formed in us so
that we would be filled with all the fullness of God.
Col 1:27-28 NKJV
To them God willed to make known what are the riches
of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which
is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I
who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I
now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God,
who loved me and gave Himself for me.
My little children, for whom I labor in birth again
until Christ is formed in you.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone
hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him
and dine with him, and he with Me.
That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;
that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be
able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width
and length and depth and height — 19 to know the love
of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled
with all the fullness of God.
WORD O' GRAM: IMMANUEL
Matt 1:23 NKJV
"Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a
Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is
translated, "God with us."
The Sign of "Immanuel": He then proceeds to give him a
sign from God Himself, the sign of "Imamanuel" (Isa
7:14). The interpretation of this sign is not clear,
even apart from its New Testament application to Christ.
The Hebrew word translated "virgin" in English Versions
of the Bible means, more correctly, "bride," in the Old
English sense of one who is about to become a wife, or
is still a young wife. Ps 68:25 English Versions of the
Bible gives "damsels."

IMMAN'UEL (i-man'u-el; "God with us"; i.e., "savior"). A
name given to Christ by Matthew (Matt 1:23) after Isa
7:14. According to orthodox interpretation the name
denotes the same as God-man (theanthropos) and has
reference to the personal union of the human nature and
the divine in Christ.
