JESUS: Our Reason
Isaiah 9:6 is one of my favorite passages of the Christmas season! This remarkable verse highlights both our Lord’s First and Second comings!
The prophet Isaiah was writing about the first coming of Christ when he wrote: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given…” He penned these words more than 700 years before the birth of Christ. It is through this Son that we are made the sons of God.
In the second half of the verse, Isaiah continues his prophetic pronouncement and describes the magnificent titles of Jesus which reveal the wisdom, authority, strength, and character of Jesus in connection to His second coming and His future reign as King of the earth.
Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Within a single verse, from one phrase to the next, Isaiah’s words span more than 2000 years.
Yes, Jesus was the virgin born child of Mary, but He was also the Son of God from eternity past that was given to be our Savior from sin. And this special Son who paid the price for our redemption with His own blood is destined to return a second time. This time He will return in great power and glory to rule the earth as King of Kings!
