Day 17 Celebrating Immanuel
And His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Today, we will finish looking at Isaiah’s prophetic introduction of Jesus Christ. We have already spoke of his amazing Wonder, Counsel, and being Mighty God, our Everlasting Father…Today, we will look at His title, “Prince of Peace.”
Don’t you just love His title, “Prince of Peace!” Who doesn’t love a Prince; especially One who will one day rule a Kingdom of Peace! A “prince” is a male being who is in line for being a King. By his birthright, he is guaranteed lineage to a kingdom. He may be first, second, or third in line, but he stands proud and tall above all others as becoming the future king.
In today’s modern world, we see an example of this in the Royal family of the United Kingdom of Great Britain. Prince Charles is first in line as being Great Britain’s next king. He is followed by his oldest son, Prince William who is followed by his brother, Prince Harry. However, when Prince William, being the first-born son, produces an off-spring, his child will be the next in line (either prince or princess). But, we know that God’s only Begotten was a Son (Jesus Christ) who will be earth’s future King! And, He will rule in everlasting Peace! Hallelujah!
Currently, we live in a fallen world filled with unrest, worries, concerns, anxieties, hate, bitterness, killings, murders, wars, and rumors of war…rising unemploment, housing crisis, rising cost of living, food and water shortages, crimes, rebellions, sicknesses and diseases. There is little peace, if any, found in the world. We find real Peace only through God’s assurance that He rules the world and that ALL things are subject unto His great Power and Authority and when HE releases the “curse” on planet Earth ALL things will be at PEACE!
Until then, our Peace comes from “within.” It comes from within our hearts and mind by trusting in God’s Word and by trusting in God’s Son, Jesus Christ, planet Earth’s future King of Kings and Lord of Lords who will rule once again a planet of great Peace. No longer will there be any “curse” on planet Earth (Revelation 22:3) No more death. No more sicknesses. No more war or rumors of war. No more fears, worries, or concerns. The Throne of God will be with man and He will dwell among them (Rev. 21-22) ruling in Righteousness and Peace..
Today, our hearts eagerly await the arrival of our soon coming Prince of Peace; our Risen Savior; our Lord Jesus Christ. But, until then our hearts go on singing. Until that glorious day when our eyes see Him face to face we will continue to live in the Blessed Hope of our Lord’s future Kingdom of Peace…Oh, yes my friend, our Savior is Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace! Amen…
Remember, God Loves You!
