Isaiah 9: 6-7
For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulders: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
The prophet Isaiah was foretelling of a time in the future encouraging the people of his day not to get discouraged because the promised Savior was coming just as promised by God. This scripture coincide with Isaiah 7:14 as the prophet provides details of Jesus' birth and the unique way in which He would be born.
Isaiah's descriptive name of Christ characterizes the functions of the Messiah. The name "Wonderful" symbolizes the miraculous works or supernatural wonders He would perform, such as miracles He would perform. The name "Counseller" represents the incarnation of perfect wisdom as He provided the perfect plan of salvation. The name "Mighty God" embodies the full deity of God as He was God in the flesh. The name 'The Everlasting Father" means that Christ would reveal His heavenly Father and He Himself would have compassion on all mankind as a compassionate father that loves all His children. Lastly, the name "Prince of Peace" means that Christ would bring the peace of God to all humanity through mankind's deliverance from sin. Christ is the man of peace.
A Savior was promised, a promise kept God--Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah. Accept Him!
