Book: Isaiah

He Is Wonderful!

Speaker: Mickey Lohr

Isaiah 9:6

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder,  and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Takeaways

  • Isaiah prophesies the coming of Jesus almost 800 years before the actual event.
  • Our God can be trusted to keep His promises to us whether they are proclaimed by His prophets, like Isaiah, or in His holy word, as in Revelation.
  • HIs promises will be answered only when their time has come.
  • His promises are personal and will exceed all our needs. Our trust in Him will be exceedingly rewarded.
  • We should never rely on our own resources for anything. It is best to rely on our everlasting God everyday for everything.

One Couldn’t Help But Ask…

  1. Why did God wait so long to send His Son to mankind?
  2. Isaiah’s words of “unto us a child is born” and “to us a son is given.” suggest that Jesus is ours, i.e., He belongs to us.  Is this correct?
  3. Is He ours or, are we His?
  4. The attributes Isaiah names make Jesus sound almost unbelievably wonderful.  What did we ever do to deserve this blessing?
  5. If I am not deserving, what can I do to show Him my gratitude?
