Isaiah 9:6 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.
Occasionally prophecies are very in depth, and honestly, take a lot of research, or prior knowledge to figure out. However, with even the slightest knowledge of the bible anyone can see that Isaiah 9:6-7 are obviously about Jesus. Isaiah points out some very important detail about the Lord. He says; “Unto us,” to the nation of Israel, “a son,” a male child is born. One of the requirements to be the coming Messiah. “The government shall be upon his shoulders.” This refers to His ability to rule as King, not only over Israel, but over the entire world. His names; “Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace,” can be given collectively to none other than He who comes, and is able, to free us as captures from this sin filled world. “Wonderful,” a somewhat accurate description. I once heard someone say we ought to reserve the word AWESOME for Christ. However, even Awesome does not fully declare how wonderful this Saviour is. “Counsellor,” for people stood and listened in awe of how He spoke with such authority. “The mighty God, The everlasting Father,” seeing He is a part of the Godhead, deity. Even He said that He and His Father are one. “The Prince of Peace,” real peace. Not a peace treaty with man, but settling the debt of man with God, and bringing eternal peace. He is of the house of David, and seated on a throne that has no end. Anyone can see this is obviously Jesus. AMEN!
Shakespeare said; “A Rose by any other name would still smell as sweet” We could say, Jesus, by many names, is still my Saviour. Acts 4:12 “…there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
What does ‘Jesus” mean to you?
From the very beginning, God has desired that we understand and worship only One God. He’s continually showed His love for us, as we have seen in:
● Oath Of Love
● Open My Eyes
● Only Me
● O House Of Jacob
● Orchestrated Confusion
● Obviously Jesus
As this One God has proved His love for us over and over again, doesn’t it just make sense that we would show this One God that same love in return.
Today we suggest you read and study whatever the Lord has laid on your Pastors heart. Whatever scripture he uses for today’s messages were given to him by God for your specific needs

I like the way Paul said it in:
Ephesians 4:6 “
One God and Father of all,
who is above all,
and through all,
and in you all.”
