He Will Be Called the Prince of Peace

9: 4-7

    The Child born of the virgin is the son of David, but He is also the Son of God. The majority of His ministry was in Galilee, but He was “enthroned” as King on a cross in Jerusalem. By taking on Himself the sin and oppression, the horror and tragedy of this world, He was able to give back righteousness and freedom, hope and fulfillment. In fact, it is hard to think of another way in which the contradictions of Isaiah 9:1-7 could have been resolved in any other way but the Son of God, Yeshua Messiah. The significance of this passage for us comes down to this: Have we allowed the child-King to take over the government of our lives? Only then can we know the benefits of God with us. We cannot have the light, the honor, the joy, the abundance He offers in any other way.32
