“Immanuel” God with Us
Matthew 1:22 
So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
 This is the commentary of Matthew Henry's
Immanuel signifies God with us; a mysterious name, but very precious; God incarnate among us, and so God reconcilable to us, at peace with us, and taking us into covenant and communion with himself. The people of the Jews had God with them, in types and shadows, dwelling between the cherubim; but never so as when the Word was made flesh—that was the blessed Shechinah. What a happy step is hereby taken toward the settling of a peace and correspondence between God and man, that the two natures are thus brought together in the person of the Mediator! by this he became an unexceptionable referee, a days-man, fit to lay his hand upon them both, since he partakes of the nature of both. Behold, in this, the deepest mystery, and the richest mercy, that ever was. By the light of nature, we see God as a God above us; by the light of the law, we see him as a God against us; but by the light of the gospel, we see him as Immanuel, God with us, in our own nature, and (which is more) in our interest. Herein the Redeemer commended his love. With Christ’s name, Immanuel, we may compare the name given to the gospel church (Ezek. 48:35). Jehovah Shammah—The Lord is there; the Lord of hosts is with us.
Nor is it improper to say that the prophecy which foretold that he should be called Immanuel was fulfilled, in the design and intention of it, when he was called Jesus; for if he had not been Immanuel—God with us, he could not have been Jesus—a Saviour; and herein consists the salvation he wrought out, in the bringing of God and man together; this was what he designed, to bring God to be with us, which is our great happiness, and to bring us to be with God, which is our great duty.
Thank the Lord we are living in a time when God is showing Him Self as Immanuel for we are seeing our world out of order in so many areas and it is amazing to me how we never learn from the past even yet today. Sin is still that same as it was in the garden of Edens Paradise and that is we see, hear, desire and take and if it is wrong deny and have to hide our feeling. 
Just in my life I know what it is like to make comments or do things I wished I could do over again. Yet I to do not learn from the past I have to live in the now just like anyone else. 
This is hard for I tend to get out of the vine and want to say or do what I think and not thinking about what God would want me to say or think. 
I know that in order to have peace Christ needs to have His way and that happens when I am involved in His way, truth and life attending His Church, so I grow in my relationship to God and one another in the Christian ways. I can afford to blame others for when I do I have three fingers pointing back at me. It is not my brother,   but it’s me oh Lord standing in the need of prayer was a song slaves sang during a time of tremendous pressure, it was sung with a show of forgiveness from being a captive of their owner. Lord help us to see the importance of accepting our responsibility to God with in the Church. The Pastor, Priest, Pope or any other religious leader can’t forgive us of our sins. We can’t hide the fact we are sinner that need saving by God grace, love and mercy so we can be empowered to continue to abide in the Lord, so things do not bother us, but we can remain in the vine producing good fruit and not being a fruit cake. The Church needs to make sure they are representatives or Ambassador in the Kingdom of God. That is showing by our actions and behavior by wanting to be like God created us to become pure and holy. The Church to day is seeing sin creep in destroying the very foundation of salvation, grace, mercy and love by accepting anything goes and forgetting the fact. We are living in the last days with even the elect are being deceived, look at the amount of pastors that feel they do not need to be accountable to one another or to a denomination. There are Pastor who teach once saved always saved and not one can remove you from His grace. Then we have Pastor who feel they are perfect and everyone needs to pay attention to them. We have pastor who practice meditation build around positive thinking Yes, I can, I know I can. We have pastor that do not preach heaven or hell we just pass away and that is the end of life. We have pastors who are practicing satanic ideology that is believed by people. We have Pastor that do not practice what they preach. So, we have many who are following the ways of the Devil himself and it shows by how many seem to not care about what is happening around the world. So, the Church is losing the warfare and Satan is deceiving people around the world.


Since religion fails to represent the Biblical Principles or economic it is hurting and people are hurting around the world from not working out our salvation with fear and trembling thinking instead it is free and God is going to take care of us. The Lord created us to work and work provides for the families around the world what is needed, Money! No one can survive without money around the world and the Bible says, if we are not willing to work we will starve and our world is starving to day in many areas. 
Then we have Governments. That are needed in order to have a society that can be civil to one another without killing the innocent. We see societies around the world have forgotten God and He is not wanted in marriages or businesses, or schools or even the halls of justice and we see lawlessness increasing to where we wonder what is going to happen next.
So Immanuel God with us is needed to day so we can live together in harmony knowing everyone matters and needs to be protected from the injustices of life and punished so they learn to obey.
Ezekiel 33:But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’
Here is what I see happening we are seeing culture change things are not falling apart but fall into place.
We have seen 11 Jews slaughtered in a Pittsburg Synagogue being blamed on the most Pro Israeli President ever. This prompted the “Atlantic Treaty” to urge Trump supporting Jews to not be welcomed in synagogues. Almost half of Americans both Republicans and Democrats state they feel like a stranger in their own country.
Churches across America of all denominations would celebrate Halloween featuring zombies, dancing Skelton’s, haunted hayrides glorifying demons and all things dark.
Ephesians 5:11 tells us not to have anything to unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.
Kill all Jews would become a popular trend on social media. Twitter actually apologized for their role in this. Christians and Trump supporters would be depicted as Trash in a New York city sanitation add. To add insult to injury, Christians and conservatives would also be called “scum” and the drags of society” by Joe Biden and others.
They have moved beyond racist, sexist, homophobic, and Islamophobic to a new term called “Blexit” representing the departure of African-Americans from the Democratic Party. We are seeing strong delusions soaring and blatant witchcraft in our headlines, witches would curse Judge Brett Kavanaugh and professing Christians would  promote Christian witchcraft. 
Many Catholics would become disillusioned with the Pope, who they have been taught, can do no wrong, some Catholics feel Pope Francis has a crises of “credibility”. Social media would keep promoting evil but Face Book would censor and block prayer. An American President Donald J Trump would declare to the world of globalists that he is not one of them! He wants nothing to do with one-world schemes.
Theaters would actually turn away money making a film titles “Gosnell” because it didn’t fit liberal agenda to them abortion is a sacrament. That the trial of Americas biggest serial killer. A doctor in sin!
A Democratic Party leader in Pittsburg was fired because on social media he said, He would stand for the flag and kneel for the cross.
Drag Queens would be welcomed into grade School and Middle School with no warning to parents. 
Daniel 9:26 And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself, and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined. And we have a European leader unable to wait patiently for a Peace Plan in the Middle East between Palestine and Israelis, said he would come up such a plan. That is Francis Emmanuel Macron said he can wait to have such a peace. He is being called the “Europe’s Savior “. Most Evangelicals would believe that. God accepts the worship of all religions. Only one Church in Jan Markels home town of Minneapolis the land of 10,000 churches, would preach on the rapture.  Yes, there is a lot more things that are deceiving us and I thought I would never see the day and I am grieved, we all have a saturation point and I trust as you read the bible you will find that Emmanuel God is with us.
