Wonderful Counselor

Wonderful Counselor! What a miracle Child: born of a virgin, both God and man in one person, entirely without sin! How eminently suited to be our Adviser and Guide: our temptations and problems were His, His divine counsel and wisdom were ours.

Mighty God! Another tribute to the Child’s deity: a frail, helpless, human infant, and yet the mighty God Himself. He has full responsibility for the world’s government, all things are placed under His feet. He is indeed able to be the Author of our redemption.

Everlasting Father! He that hath seen the Son hath seen the Father. The Son and the Father are one. They were always one, also before the Incarnation (“before Abraham was, I am”). The Son is also “one who continually acts as a father to his people”.

Prince of Peace! A royal Prince indeed, of the very dynasty of heaven. A heavenly Prince to restore the heavenly peace, which man had terminated. Under Him swords will be beaten into plowshares, spears into pruning hooks, war will be past (Is. 2: 4) .
