And He Shall Be Called…
There are many names for Jesus, but four in particular that the prophet Isaiah called Him. Join us as we discover why He is called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. We hope that you will gain some new insights and fresh perspective on the Savior whose birth over 2,000 years ago is still changing lives and impacting our world.
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. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.” (Isaiah 9:6–7)
And He Shall Be Called… Wonderful Counselor
We will examine the fact that Jesus became one of us to be with us. He came to be God with us to give a first-hand look at who God is and what God is like. He came to bring help and hope to those who are hurting. Because he was fully God and fully man, He knows what it is like to be one of us and, therefore, can counsel, guide and help us. He is available, approachable and alive today when we need Him the most.
And He Shall Be Called… Mighty God
Jesus did what no mere mortal could do-he healed. Raised the dead, walked on water, turned water into wine, feed 5,000 with two fish and five loaves of bread. Jesus was fully God in a fully Human Body-he was not half God and half man. His power is at work in us, for us and through us. It is His power that changes lives.
And He Shall Be Called… Everlasting Father
Everlasting Father literally means Father of Eternity-Jesus had no beginning and He will have no end. Jesus is a Father forever. He is the Father Who Always Pursues Us, Protects Us and Provides for us. Those who know Him are a part of His family forever. No one or nothing can ever take us away from Him.
And He Shall Be Called… Prince of Peace
One of the great cries of our world today is peace, the absence of conflict-but there is no peace and there never will be any until the Prince of Peace is reigning and ruling in our world. But, we can experience real internal peace, even in a world full of chaos and conflict. Jesus came to bring us peace and promises that we can have his peace and not live with troubled hearts and fear. It is His Peace that we all need and we all can have.
