Isaiah prophesied, “The people who have walked in darkness have seen a great light” and “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given … and His name shall be Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” That’s a mighty heavy string of titles for a baby wrapped in a manger, but He was and is all of that and more. His great light shone on the darkness and exposed it for what it was. How long the Hebrews waited for their Messiah to come, waited for their deliverance from political oppression. But Jesus didn’t come just for the Hebrews and He didn’t come to bring social change but spiritual change. He came to bring peace between man and God not man and man. It is so sad that our eyes are always on the finite and not the infinite. So many people missed out on being a part of Jesus’ ministry, missed out on being in close fellowship with the Son of God, all because He didn’t do what they thought He should, so they turned their backs on Him. So many people do the same today. He was and is the Prince of Peace, and one day, when He returns, He will bring the peace everyone longs for, everyone dreams about. “The wolf shall dwell with the lamb. The leopard shall lie down with the young goat … And the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord.” Come soon dear Jesus, come soon!
