Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 9:6 which says, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
So, what is Isaiah talking about, I mean it is prophetic writing and all that, but what does it mean? Well this is pointing forward to when Mary was going to give birth to Jesus (I mentioned those verses in my last post) and it goes on to say that He will be called “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace” how is that possible you ask, well when Jesus was about to go to Heaven to atone for us He told His disciples that the Holy Spirit would come into their hearts, and the Holy Spirit is the wonderful counselor, and Jesus was (and is) God and if you remember before he was going to be taken away He said “I am” and all of the hundreds of soldiers fell to the ground, ”
Now Judas, who betrayed him, also knew the place, for Jesus often met there with his disciples. So Judas, having procured a band of soldiers and some officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, went there with lanterns and torches and weapons. Then Jesus, knowing all that would happen to him, came forward and said to them, “Whom do you seek?” They answered him, “Jesus of Nazareth.” Jesus said to them, “I am he.”Judas, who betrayed him, was standing with them. When Jesus said to them, “I am he,” they drew back and fell to the ground. (ESV John 18:2-6)
And He is also called Everlasting Father, how is He a father, He didn’t even get married? Well the Bible says that we are His children, He adopted us as His children, on the cross He gave us the right to be children of God, thank you Jesus. He is also called the “Prince of Peace” how is He the prince of peace? Well if we accept Jesus as our saviour and God then we are filled with peace, because no man can hurt us, the Bible says that we should fear God, not man, and it is because Jesus died for us, thank you so much Jesus.
So Jesus is our Father our Peace, our God and our Counselor, thank you Jesus.
Do you believe that Jesus is you Father your God and your Counselor?
