We’re continuing to focus on “The Names of Our Lord” and my text is Isaiah 9:6. “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, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (KJV) The third name the Holy Spirit moved on Isaiah to reveal is that Jesus Christ is “The Mighty God!” One of the great insults to our Lord is the effort being made to bring Jesus Christ down to “man’s level.” Jesus Christ is more than a good and wise teacher and a great miracle worker. Jesus Christ is GOD in the flesh! To deny this truth is to be deceived by the spirit of anti-christ which is already in this world.
Jesus Christ is the Mighty God that saves a poor lost sinner by grace through faith! He is the Mighty God that eternally secures the believer with our name recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life! He is the Mighty God that calms the storms of our life with these precious words, “Peace, be still!” He is the mighty God that gives us the grace required for every need that we face in our earthly sojourn on the way home! He is the Mighty God that, some glorious daybreak, will call by name all of His redeemed through His precious Blood, home to be forever with Him in the Rapture! He is the Mighty God that will take Satan, the Anti-christ and the False Prophet and plunge them into the eternal Lake of Fire, shutting them up forever! He is the Mighty God that will set up the Kingdom of Heaven on this earth and will rule for 1000 glorious years from Jerusalem! He is the Mighty God that will usher all who believe on Him into an eternity of joy, bliss and glory, all because of God’s amazing grace! Hallelujah! What a Savior!
