“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.” (Isa. 9:6 KJV)
More than just a Baby born in a manger to Mary and Joseph, we find a Child born unto “US”, a Son given unto “US”, a King 👑 with sovereign governing power and authority to rule over “US”. He is called Wonderful (miracle worker), Counsellor (chief advisor in all matters), The Mighty God (all powerful), The Everlasting Father (eternal source of all creation), The Prince of Peace (chief ruler and source of peace). He is our Lord Jesus!
The government, empire, rule of law, shall be turned and carried in a new direction of His leadership. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Jesus’ rule in the Church and the World is preeminent (surpassing all others; very distinguished in some way). This is the unmitigated, absolute truth. When Jesus rose from the dead he said, “All power (authority) is given unto Me in Heaven and in Earth (Mt. 28:18).” Paul said, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is ABOVE every Name: That at the Name of JESUS every knee should bow, of things in Heaven, and things in Earth, and things under the earth (Phi. 2:9-10).
More than just a Child born in a manger, more than just a Son, we celebrate our Great God and King; His Name is Jesus. The Ancient Hebrew meaning for son is “one who continues the house, i.e., continues or expands the family line.” We celebrate His birth and may the joy of that celebration lead to further expansion of God’s Family in the Earth through Jesus. He is the Only Reason for this Season – and All Seasons.
