Wonderful Counselor

Isaiah 9:6  (ID: 1709)

The Old Testament prophet Isaiah pointed to a “Wonderful Counselor” who would come to be a light in the darkness. Alistair Begg shows how we are all in need of one who will deal with us personally, diagnose us properly, change us powerfully, and give us purpose. Jesus Christ is the Wonderful Counselor Isaiah promised, freeing us from the bondage of sin and helping us through our every pain.


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.
