  1. Gail McConnell: Emmanuel means God and man. Yes, God in the form of flesh walked among us in the form of Jesus. Jesus as man endured all persecution on the earth as He obeyed the Father. Jesus as man did not sin because He had the Holy Spirit in Him and He was connected to His Father. Jesus as man without sin became sin for man so that through His death we in poverty could become rich and live again in holy communion with the Father through Him. Jesus in now sitting next to the Father as man and yet also as Lord. God sacrificed His own person for us! What do we have to be afraid of? The Holy Spirit has invaded me and I know that God lives in me and that I sit next to the Lord Who sits next to the Father in the heavenlies. I have never felt safe and secure in my flesh. Today even though my flesh is still present (I have not yet received my new heavenly body), my spirit is alive and I absolutely 100% know (not just hope...but know) that I am God the Father's daughter and His child through His Son. Yep! I am royal and loyal to only One party...the party of Jesus Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ in thought, word, and deed. I know the plans He has for me in eternity. As for now, I just walk with Him and let Him reveal His plans for me to glorify Him daily.
    It is so peaceful. Everything listed above in Janice's article is true. God is all those things. Even more, that God wants to invade each of His children. Although I can't explain it (because if I could it would not be a mystery or a miracle), being invaded by God is like being married to a holy millionarie. Although I don't know what that is like in the flesh...I do know what that is like in the spirit! God promised I would know if I believed. I believed and after fire and water He was faithful to grant me what He promised. I am as Paul: I have learned the secret of being content. Whether I have much or little by earth standards, I am a holy millionaire's daughter by Heaven standards. I see what God sees. I see from heaven's perspective. I asked God to grant me the will to love like I have never been wounded. He has. I asked God to break my heart for what breaks His. He has. I live in complete peace, joy and love!
    I walk around in the full armor of God because He has put it on me like skin. My inside is soft now, but my outside armor like skin is hard...prepared for battle! I am gentle yet bold. When my flesh tries to entrap me, my spirit rises up and I run to the Father because I am one of the many sons being taken from glory to glory! I sit next to the Son. I go to the Father through the Son and He rescues me from the flesh that attempts to entrap me. He shows me the scheme of the enemy and His power in me rises up and puts the enemy as a footstool beneath my feet. Wow! What an Abba Father! God is my daddy!

    Love, Gail
