The Mighty God, Everlasting Father, And Prince Of Peace

(Isaiah 9:6)  “… and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
In the above verse it’s important to point out the definite article “The” before each of the last three names of Jesus; meaning that Jesus is therefore the only “mighty God, everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace,” for there is not, nor can there ever be another besides Him.  1) The Mighty God. For unto us God came, unto us a son was given who was and is “the only” Son of “The Most High God,” and although he is called a son, he is still God Almighty. (Rev. 1:8) “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”  2) The Everlasting Father.” To this some will say, Well how can this be? For naturally this would be impossible, but not with God. In the Bible Jesus Christ is shown to be God Himself in human flesh. He was and is “The living Word of God,” “The Creator of the world,” “The only Savior of man,” but also “The everlasting Father,” that saves us and who also keeps us safe in our salvation forever. For he promised “never to stop loving us,” “never to leave us nor forsake us,” and to “never lose us.” For His salvation  “no one can ever take away.” (2 Cor. 6:18) “And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”  3) The Prince of Peace.” Not only does Jesus give us peace in salvation, He also gives to the saved His Holy Spirit of Peace as well. Indwelling every believer at the moment of salvation, and giving to them His daily comfort within, forever ! (John 14:27) “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Called By The Gospel Of God

(Rom. 1:16)  “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”  The gospel of Jesus Christ is not just the biblical account of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, but it’s also the power behind our salvation, our walk, and service for the Lord. 1) God’s gospel calls all men to salvation. All men, meaning even those who do not believe Him.God so loved man that He sent His prophets to preach salvation to man long before He came himself in Christ to show man the way. And so, from the very beginning of time God has been calling men to repent of sin and trust in Him and His Word. 2) God’s gospel call is to  “whosoever will.” It’s not just limited to the Jew, but it’s also available to anyone who desires forgiveness and peace with God. Unfortunately, although all men are called only a few answer back and find salvation. 3) God’s gospel calls every Christian to share it.It’s now our…

Salvation Is Through Christ Alone

(Rom. 14:11-12) “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” One day all men will stand in judgment before God, but there will be a special “great white throne judgment”(Rev. 20:11-15) set aside for the unsaved where God himself will explain to the unsaved that salvation apart from trusting in Jesus Christ is impossible. Different types of arguments and excuses will be given there: 1) Arguments by the Heathen Man . He believes that because he has never heard of Jesus he has an excuse, but God will show him that he once had the truth but rejected it. For all men came off  Noah’s Ark, unfortunately those that forsook God damned the next generations to follow by replacing God with the idols and the lies of men. So, no matter where man is found on earth he is guilty of rejecting God’s way of salvation for his own. That’s why Missions is so important today, fo…
