NAMES OF GOD

Isaiah 9:6

 

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
LESSON

In contrast to Ahaz, who refused to listen to and obey God, the Lord would raise up a faithful king who would be born and reign in the future. He would not only be God come to earth, but God born on earth, both human and divine. The “child born” points to His humanity and the “son given” to His deity.

His name will be Wonderful Counselor. What does this mean? It means that Jesus is the most extraordinary one ever born and lives up to all expectations. He also, as counselor, guides with infallible wisdom. Can Jesus really be all that? Can Jesus really do all that? Without Jesus there is no reason, purpose, way, path, no hope for the future or forgiveness for the past. He is the light and the life! He is the definition of, the defining moment of, the sustenance of and the reason why everything exists.

 

Memory Verse: Genesis 1:1
