"Jesus Prince of Peace."
December 24th, 2017 -Pastor Keith Cromie
The media makes sure that we are always informed about the birth of royalty. Prince William and Kate (The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) have two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and the world was informed about their births. Recent news has announced that another birth is expected in April of next year (2018). We would expect such fan fare and world-wide communication when royalty is involved.
If anyone deserved a world-wide communication strategy regarding his birth announcement it was Jesus.
But Jesus beats every birth announcement in terms to advance notice. 700 years before Jesus was born the prophet Isaiah made an announcement.
Is. 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Is. 9:7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
We will look deeper into the name, “Prince of Peace”. Who doesn’t need peace in their experience? We all desire it, but sometimes don’t understand it and more often people are confused about how to get it.
O Come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant… Let us worship the Lord together!
