[PC-USA] 2019-12-18 - The Biblical Announcement of the Messiah

- - - - - - -

Janice P. Moser, and mostly the prophet Isaiah

Every Christmastide, many of us hear this passage. Sometimes, we enjoy it during a musical presentation of Handel’s The Messiah. Other times, we hear it read during a special service, or we see it on a bulletin or elsewhere. Isaiah 9:6-7 is a very important passage, not only heralding the true Messiah, but also confirming that Christ’s birth was the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. I hope the verses will bless you anew:

Isaiah 9:6-7 (NIV)
  1. 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.
  2. Of the greatness of his government and peace
      there will be no end.
     he will reign on David’s throne
      and over his kingdom,
     establishing and upholding it
       with justice and righteousness
       from that time on and forever.
     The zeal of the Lord Almighty
       will accomplish this.
