December 5, 2018 Week 1, Day 4 A child is born

By 1:15 PM


Week I: Jesus came at a specific time in history
Day 4:

“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us; upon his shoulder 
dominion rests.
They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, 
Prince of Peace.
His dominion is vast and forever peaceful. Upon David’s throne, and 
over his kingdom, which he confirms and sustains.  By judgment and 
justice, both now and forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this!” 
(Isaiah 9:5-6)

This is the second of the three Emmanuel prophesies found in Isaiah.

What does the prophet tell us about this future Messiah? Isaiah 
prophesies that the Messiah will be born to be a king, whose purpose
is to fulfill the Davidic Covenant. God’s promise to David was that his
 kingdom will last forever through the faithfulness of God.

As a king he will guide us in ways that are incomprehensible for his 
counsel will be wise and truthful more so than the wisdom of Solomon. 
Jesus himself testified to this. At the judgment the queen of the south 

The title God-Hero is an early indication of the divine and human 
natures of the future Messiah.

Come, Lord Jesus, come!
