His Peace Foretold

Posted on November 28, 2011 at 5:59 AM Comments comments (6)
Isaiah 11:1-10.  Once more we find ourselves looking at some words as found in the book of the prophet Isaiah.  Isaiah describes the coming of the Son of David, who will be filled with God's Spirit.  He would judge the nations in righteousness and bring peace to the world.  We live in a world that longs for peace.  True peace is available only through Jesus Christ, God's Son.  Because of Jesus, we can have peace with God.  It is only through God's love and amazing grace extended to this world through Jesus that we can enjoy peace with God.  Thinking of peace, I love these words from Philippians 4:7.   "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
No God, no peace.  Know God, know peace.  The choice is ours, but remember, there is no third option.  You cannot be a fence sitter when it comes to God.  Either you know Him, or you don't.  This Advent, make sure you know the real peace available through Jesus.

His Birth Foretold

Isaiah 9:1-7.  On this first day of Advent, we go back to the Old Testament to look at these words from the prophet Isaiah.  What amazes me is that Isaiah wrote these words some 700 years before the birth of Jesus Christ.  Isn't it wonderful to know that God has everything in control...according to His timetable?  As we know, at exactly the right moment, Jesus came to this earth as a baby.
Emmanuel - God with us!  Isaiah proclaimed hope in Jesus.  Just look at the names he uses to describe God's Son.  Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Who else but God's Son, Jesus, could live up to these titles?  As we journey over the coming days through this season of Advent, which lead into Christmas, may we once again be amazed at God's incredible love for us by sending His one and only Son Jesus to this earth.  Let me encourage you to pause this day and say, "Thank you, God, for Jesus."
