are in a series Meaning of a Savior and last time we look at Yeshua (Jesus) God’s precious son given to us and today we are going to at the third phase of Isaiah 9:6, “and the government will be on his shoulders”.
“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.”
To unpack this phrase “and the government will be on his shoulders” we need to understand what government our Father is talking about in Isaiah. He is not talking about the government of men as the people in the time of Isaiah hoped. Even when Yeshua came they were looking for an earthly king, who would save them from the ternary of Roman dictatorship and because they were looking for this earthly king they didn’t recognize him.
You and I must examine what we are looking for in a Savior. Are we looking for someone who will save us from our hurting marriage, from a government who is looking to everything but the one true God or are we looking for the one who save us from our own sin, destroying every door of the enemy who desires to destroy the kingdom of God within us!
We must look to this savior, who establishes within us his kingdom, his authority and his government and his love!
Join me next time as we unpack the title of “Wonderful Counselor”.
