The Mighty God, Everlasting Father, And Prince Of Peace

(Isaiah 9:6)  “… and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, 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.”

Faith That Removes Mountains

(Mark 11:23) "For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith."Over a hundred years ago, the great evangelist Dr. R. A. Torrey told the story of one little church in Maine that was dead spiritually. In fact, most of the churches in that town were pretty dead, but in this one particular church a few of its godly men decided to petition God for a miracle, and so they said, "here we are, uneducated laymen, but let us form a praying band, and center our prayers on the salvation of one man." So, they decided on one of the hardest men in town, a hopeless drunkard, and centered their prayers on him. To their amazement in just a week this man was converted. Seeing therefore the impossible become possible, they began to pray for another, and then another, unti…

What Does God Expect Of Fathers

(Deut. 6:5-7) “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children…” Before Israel went in to posses the Promised Land, the Lord warned Israel’s leadership of the importance of the above commandments. 1) To Love God first above all. God wanted the Fathers of Israel to give first place in the hearts to Him. Why?  Because He knew how quickly they would forget Him if they didn’t. If the fathers forget so will the family; therefore God commanded them to make God the Lord of their heart, soul, and might. 2) To Know the Word of God.  How can a father teach to his family that which he knows not himself? How sad it is when the leadership of the home does not know or study what they are to live and teach. Therefore, God expects fathers to study the Word so that the Word directs the home and not the world. 3) To Tea…

Living Without Honor

(Mark 6:4-5) "But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them." In the above story, Jesus went home to his home town where people knew him and saw him grow up. Everywhere else that he went people followed, and as a result, great miracles happened but in his own hometown not much happened because of their unbelief.Jesus wanted his disciples to understand this great truth. You see, people that know us the best have the hardest time with us changing after salvation because they judge us by the past and not the present. When we get saved, we become new creatures in Christ (2 Cor. 5: 17)."Old things are passed away, and behold all things are become new." It takes a while for "kin" and friends to see that we are different, because they knew us before. Therefore "our hon…
