In Isaiah 9:6, the third royal title for the Messiah is Everlasting Father. The Messiah would be the perfect and and endless father that our hearts long for. Jesus embodied the protection, care, leadership and unconditional love of a true father. Scripture gives us three promises of our everlasting father, Jesus. Our Messiah promises to love and accept us unconditionally. He promises to discipline us for our ultimate good, and He promises to hold us fast, forever. Ultimately, Jesus Christ's death on a cross and resurrection are proof that He keeps His promises.
The Spirit of God gave the prophet Isaiah revelation about the promised Messiah, the Savior of the world. In His birth announcement in Isaiah 9 we are given four royal titles that vividly describe the nature and work of the Messiah. This Advent, we will study these four titles in their context, how Jesus Christ fulfills each royal title, and why we can worship Jesus Christ as our true king this Christmas season.
