“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.”
Over 2,700 years ago the prophet Isaiah called for the Prince of Peace to be established on earth.
Today (and for the last 2,000+ years) we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ known as Christmas day.
Sad to say, many people overlook what it’s truly about because they’re get caught up buying presents.
It’s interesting to note that Isaiah called for “the government shall be upon his shoulder…” yet somehow over the years, that part got lost in the translation.
Maybe that’s why we have so much corruption and trouble with our governments today.
To illustrate another point, the book of Luke announces the arrival of the Prince of Peace in chapter 2:13-14:
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
(King James Version)
When you take time to study verse 14, you’ll understand why (my favorite preacher) Andrew Wommack says: “The War between God and man is over.”
It doesn’t say good will among men. (Look around you and ask yourself: “How much good will is there among man?”)
It says: good will Toward men.
God’s wrath towards men was placed on the cross of Jesus and the announcement of His arrival makes it clear that the war between God and man is over.
If more people understood that then we’d probably not have as many wars as we do today.
But that’s a topic for another time.
