And He will be called wonderful conselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 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. — Isaiah 9:6-7
Read the whole passage in Isaiah 9:1-7
The forbidden fruit eate, the world flooded and restarted, the children of Abraham straying, and the kings of Israel failing –in short, humanity had failed. God saw the hopelessness of the human race, the debt of its sin and the surety of its punishment. So God made a promise, the promise of a Savior. This Savior would be called Counselor, God, Father, and Prince. He would come and be the Hero who rescues his people and the Savior who wins the battle. When we are disappointed by friends, hurt by our family, angered at our own failures, we can be encouraged that our Hero will neither fail nor disappoint. Jesus successds where we all fail. He holds true when others falter. He is the solid rock on which our life can find security
