Emmanuel GOD WITH US!

“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.

Christ Born of Mary

Matthew 1:18-25
 Christ Born of Mary
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being [f]a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is [g]conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name [h]Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
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.”
24 Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, 25 
and [i]did not know her till she had brought forth her[j] firstborn Son. And he called His name Jesus.
 
This is a Mystery how Jesus was born of Marry for it as a secret that the human mind can't understand just like the bones are formed in the womb of a women, even David marveled how his Mother conceived him. Here Mary is espoused to Joseph not married, but under a contract to be married, So Marry was honorable among all women as perfect as she could be being accepted by Joseph to become his bride. So Mary was justified by God to have the birth of a son named Jesus not from a harlot, but a virgin Marry. Joseph was a just man a holy man shocked by Mary saying, she was going to have a baby from the Holy Spirit. Remember she had a friend Elizabeth with whom she lived three months before giving birth Luke 1: 56.  Today when a person comes to the Lord they show it by actions and behavior that is good and glories for they are becoming holy. This was a very humbling experience for Mary for she could of fallen under the curse but she found herself innocence as she keep calm abiding in the vine! It is important we keep our consciences alive pure and holy so we are ashamed when we do wrong and ask the Lords forgiveness to be made whole.

THANKSGIVING BLESSING FROM GOD HE GAVE!
Contributed by Jerral Campfield

“Thanksgiving blessing from God He gave us”
 
Thank the Lord We are living in the Now and it is great, for it is work.  It takes work to stay alive, getting up, eating, working, playing, getting ready for bed, all involve work. What can’t we do as the Harrah Assembly of God Church to have an impact in our area when we all are working together under the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God. 
We are seeing growth in so many areas that we have to make sure we are all working together with the Lord to have an impact in our area for the good of all for everybody matters to the Lord.
Romans 12 3-8 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
We are more than one we are many, no one better than the other for every part of our body is important. It is so easy in a marriage to think the man is more important than the women and the marriage breaks apart. In families one child is not more important then the other. They are all loved and Christ loves the world even those who have not accepted Christ yet.  Malachi 3:17 New King James Version (NKJV) 17 They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts, “On the day that I make them My jewels.[a]
And I will spare them As a man spares his own son who serves him.” 
And I will spare them As a man spares his own son who serves him.” Then in Acts 20:28
 

28 Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church [a]of God which He purchased with His own blood.  The Lord has given us the opportunity to abide in Him 

John 15 New King James Version (NKJV)
The True Vine (CHURCH)
15 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He [a]takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you[b] will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
Love and Joy Perfected
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. 10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
God remember loves the world but those who are abiding in the Lord, that is you and I, we are not our own to do what we think is right, but what Gods will is; right. The grape is a product of the grape vine we are a product as a church to the vine; Jesus. This give us the opportunity to produce and grow automatically as we stay connected to the Lord.  I feel many times we struggle, for we have a tendency to want to do our thing, without waiting upon the Lord for direction in the next step. So strife set in 2 Corinthians 12:20
