Isaiah 9:6 is the background for this series of messages throughout the Christmas season. Isaiah prophesied about Jesus, “For unto us a child is born , unto us a son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. I believe that God intends that we experience all that Jesus intends to be in our lives. So, for the next four weeks, we are going to consider each of these descriptions in turn. The first designation is “Wonderful Counselor.” Now, perhaps a word is in order about the putting together of the words Wonderful and Counselor. Some of the translations of the Bible have a comma separating the two words, thus leading some to see these as separate titles. I believe that the words should be taken together as are all the other phrases in this verse.
