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.

– Isaiah 9:6 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

Written over 700 years before the birth of Christ, this prophecy spoke of a person who would redeem Israel. A son would be given who would be compassionate as a counselor, yet all-powerful as God. He would reveal the everlasting Father and bring peace between this infinite being and His finite creation. Unfortunately, Israel at this time was falling apart under Assyria, but God embedded into this decaying nation the promise of a Messiah, and He fulfilled that promise in Jesus Christ. When we feel like our lives are falling apart God promises us hope in Jesus Christ. Jesus still reveals the Father to us in wonderful ways.
