Postlude 

Isaiah 9:2-7 New Revised Standard Version

2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness – on them light has shined.

3 You have multiplied exultation; you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as people exult when dividing plunder.

4 For the yoke of their burden and the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, you have broken as on the day of Midian.

5 For all the boots of the tramping warriors and all the garments rolled in blood shall be burned as fuel for the fire.

6 For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders, and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

7 Great will be his authority, and there shall be endless peace for the throne of David and his kingdom. He will establish and uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time onward and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

An Advent series on the coming of the messiah and what it means for us and our world as we look at the meaning of the names of the messiah from Isaiah 9: 6…For a child has been born for a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. We prepare for the coming of the messiah with anticipation. We look at what each name means for our faith in a personal way and how Jesus exemplified each of these names in his teaching on the Kingdom of God.
