Who is Jesus? Wonderful Counselor

Isaiah 9:1-7

I. The Best of Times and the Worst of Times

Nevertheless, there will be no more

gloom for those who were in distress. In the

past he humbled the land of Zebulun and

the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will

honor Galilee of the Gentiles, by the way of

the sea, along the Jordan–

Isaiah 9:1

 2 The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.

3 You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest, as men rejoice when dividing the plunder.

4 For as in the day of Midian’s defeat, you have shattered the yoke that burdens them, the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor.

5 Every warrior’s boot used in battle and every garment rolled in blood will be destined for burning, will be fuel for the fire

Isaiah 9:2-5


II. A Counselor Who is Wonderful

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given,

and the government will be on his shoulders.

And he will be called Wonderful Counselor,

Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of


Isaiah 9:6


III. Who is setting the direction for your life? 

But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

John 14:26
