In the Bible, in the ninth chapter of the book of Isaiah we read about a coming Messiah, an anointed one who will bring peace, forgiveness, and salvation to all who will trust in Him. Approximately seven hundred and fifty years later this Messiah would burst upon the scene – Jesus Christ. Imagine the anticipation of these ancient people when Isaiah told them about the coming Savior!
(Isaiah 9) 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.
