Mighty God

From Series: A Child is Born

Isaiah 9:6  (ID: 2604)

What is the significance of the list of names in Isaiah’s prophetic depiction of the Messiah? In this message, Alistair Begg demonstrates how titles such as Wonderful Counselor and Mighty God describe Christ’s character and establish His divinity. Christ’s triumph over sin and death fulfilled Isaiah’s anticipation of a mighty Savior. As believers, we can therefore rest in the truth that Jesus is powerful to accomplish all His good purposes.


6For to us a child is born,

to us a son is given;

and the government shall be upon3 his shoulder,

and his name shall be called4

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
