Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour. - Isaiah 43:10-11📖 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. - 1 John 4:14-16 📖 #jesuschrist sent forth from #Father#God#almighty#saviour of #mankind#behold the #lamb of God who takes away the #sins of the #world I #pray for all #lost#souls to receive the #knowledge of #truth and have #everlasting#life
✶ "Why wasn't Jesus named Immanuel?"
In the prophecy of the virgin birth,
the prophet Isaiah declared;
"Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign:
The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son,
and will call Him Immanuel."
This prophecy refers to the birth of Jesus in Matthew 1:22-23,
"All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
'The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel'
which means, 'God with us.'" This does not mean, however, that the Messiah’s
name would actually be Immanuel.
There are many names given to Jesus
using the phrase “He shall be called,” both in the Old and New Testaments.
This was a common way of saying that people would refer to Him in these various ways.
Isaiah prophesied of the Messiah,
“His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).
None of these titles was Jesus’ actual name,
but these were descriptions people would use to refer to Him forever.
Luke tells us Jesus “shall be called the Son of the Highest” (Luke 1:32)
and “son of God” (1:35), but neither of these was His name.
In the same way, to say that Jesus would be called "Immanuel" means Jesus is God
and that He dwelt among us in His incarnation and that He is always with us.
Jesus was God in the flesh. Jesus was God making His dwelling among.
No, Jesus' name was not Immanuel,
but Jesus was the meaning of Immanuel, "God with us."
Immanuel is one of the many titles for Jesus,
a description of who He is.

This sums it all up! He saved Barça and Enrique after a terrible performance with a brace, yet he isn't celebrating. He seems tired if the situation, he is playing on his own. Just imagine, where we would be without him...
Something has to change rapidly. We really abandon our philosophy, we are helpless with and without the ball. Again, if we didn't have Messi...
We must, somehow, restart everything. We have to focus on playing as a collective, on playing easy passes and on pressuring the opponent early. Atm we seem so tired, so lethargic and it won't stop. There is lot of work to be done in a short time if we want to finish this season somehow positive! @fcbarcelona

When you've worked 45 hours this week, still have 2 more 10 hour shifts to go, been up all night with a poorly toddler, have the housework to do and have to make sure everyone gets fed tomorrow, the slow cooker saves the day! #mamlife#foodisfuel#longweek#slowcooker#saviour#tired
