Sunday's Thought

Unto Us A Child Is Born by Bud Hance

Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)
For unto us a Child is born,
      Unto us a Son is given;
      And the government will be upon His shoulder.
      And His name will be called
      Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
      Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

There are several things in this passage that remained a mystery  until the coming of Christ. Isaiah here, is clearly predicting the arrival of a world leader and a Messianic age. What was not recognized until after the life, death, and resurrection of Christ is that Isaiah was actually predicting the arrival of the Son of God.

But since that day, it has become clear that this prophecy anticipated far more than the birth of a world leader. It is now clearly known that the phrase "unto us a Son is given" was the reality of the entrance of God's own Son into the human race that He had created.
