Messianic Prophecy

Wonderful Counselor

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.”

Isaiah was a prophet in the Old Testament that prophesied about the coming Messiah, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Many have said that the book of Isaiah contains more references to the coming Messiah than any other book in the Bible. It has been considered to be a major prophetic book in the Old Testament.

Isaiah 9:6 is one of many “Messianic prophecies” that not only tells of the Messiah coming, but describes who He is and what He will do:  

A Son is given (Emanuel)…..He came as a Gift

He has a responsibility…Government

Has several names:

Wonderful….excellent / great

Counselor….someone who gives guidance, teaches or gives encouragement / having supernatural wisdom

Mighty….possessing great power and strength

God….the great “I AM” being everything

Everlasting….eternal, never ending, lasting for ever

Father….having the nature of protecting / providing

Prince of peace….ruling with dignity and authority

The Lord Jesus Christ fulfilled the Old Testament Messianic Prophecy in several of the New Testament books:

Born in Bethlehem [Mica 5:2, Matthew 2:1]

Anointed by the Holy Spirit [Isaiah 11:2, Matthew 3:16-17]

Ministered in Galilee [Isaiah 9:1, Matthew 4:12-16]

Rejected by Jews [Psalm 118:22, 1st Peter 2:7]

Betrayed by a friend [Psalm 41:9; John 13:18]

Rose from the dead [Psalm 16:10, Mark 16:6]

“Father in heaven, thank you for the fulfillment of the messianic prophecy that prophesied the coming of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ…Amen”

Continuing in His service…Rev
