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. Isaiah 9:6
This verse is on many Christmas cards. It is a wonderful prophecy God gave to Isaiah, a promise to all. Take a moment to read the verses from the New Testament.
For unto us a child is born,
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
unto us a son is given:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
and his name shall be called Wonderful
( a miracle: - marvellous thing, wonder)
Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
(to advise; reflexively to deliberate or resolve:)
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
The mighty God
But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!
The everlasting Father
(A Father that will be there forever – Father of Eternity)
I and my Father are one.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God.
The Prince of Peace
For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
Merry Christmas to one and all, may you have a wonderful day with family and friends and never forget the reason for the season, Jesus.
Have a blessed day,
