Isaiah 9:6-7 KJV
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, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
NAMES FOR MESSIAH
He is exceptional, distinguished, and without peer, the one who gives the right advice.
He is God himself.
He is timeless; he is God our Father.
Prince of Peace
His government is one of justice and peace.
Isaiah uses four names in 9:6 to describe the Messiah. These names have special meaning to us.
If you are a Christian then you have hope. Our hope is in Jesus Christ and in Him alone! Does America have any hope? Maybe, but it will take some major backbone. This may be the last chance to change things but it will take the church! Great sermon and just what I needed! WAKE UP AMERICA!
By Pastor Billy Crone
Every nation, every kingdom, every state, every city, every town, every home, every mom, every dad, every child, every person. YES, HE HAS ALL OF US. He will keep you if you choose to and desire to want Him to guide you. Do you want to follow Him and trust Him in all things? Good times and bad times? You choose because He will not force you or me or anyone to take the refuge He offers. This life is hard. It is also short. One day if you choose to follow Him, this life will be but a blurred past and we have a beautiful future that we currently cannot imagine.
The song below is done beautifully. I hope you listen.
Am I alone? I find it sobering to think we could be deceiving ourselves. Fool yourself into thinking you are doing just fine. What does the word of God say?
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
Our faith in Christ must collide with appropriate action. Living for Christ implies repentance and the birth of a new creation. A hunger is born for the things of God, and to live according to the new life that is found in Christ. The forgetful listener is the person who attends church every week and listens to the word, but never engages the message toward life change. The Word of God is designed to be lived out, and the hearing of the Word is a catalyst to that change. Satan continues to sabotage your life after you have heard the good news. Disregard the lies and live out the truth!
