Another Old Testament reference to Messiah, the anticipated savior. We offer a single verse, but encourage you to review the entire passage to grasp the power of Isaiah’s description of the results of the LORD Almighty’s zeal.
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
The pronoun ‘us’ is used twice to describe the beneficiaries of the baby whose birth is foretold. Consider what it would take for an infant to handle full authority over the world. Isaiah offers us insights into His identity and roles through each of the given names he provides. What do they tell us about the richness of Messiah’s person and purpose?
