FOR A CHILD WILL BE BORN TO US – Isaiah 9:6

“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6

This verse proclaims the extraordinary prophecy of the divine and human nature of the coming Messiah. He would be born as a child, like every other human being. He would also be given as a Son at the same time, with God being the giver. “He gave His only begotten Son” – John 3:16.

When Isaiah wrote this prophecy it was stated, “therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel” – Isaiah 7:14. God named Him Immanuel, meaning “God with us.”

This amazing child is none other than “The almighty God” and “The everlasting Father.”  He is the “Prince of Peace” and is the only one who can unite mankind and bring true world peace.  

In His human nature, He is our “Wonderful Counselor,” our perfect example and faultless teacher. He shows us what to believe and how to live, and He is always right, for in Him “are hidden all the treasure of wisdom and knowledge,” and “in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” – Colossians 2:3, 9.

During this time of year, let us reflect that God Himself is the great sign to Israel and the whole world. The attitude of men and women to God, in Christ, would reveal the state of their hearts and seal their eternal destiny, whether to everlasting life or being forever separated from God.

We trust that you will make a decision for Jesus Christ and eternal life.

Merry Christmas!
