Sermons on Isaiah

Waiting on Jesus

Remember Black Friday before the internet? Waiting in lines to get those special after Thanksgiving deals? Even if you aren’t old enough to remember or aren’t a shopper, the concept of waiting in line is universal. It seems like we spend most of our lives waiting on something. We wait to get out of school, then we wait to find a Mr./Mrs. “Right”; we wait to start a family, then we wait for the kids to get a little older;…

Prince of Peace

When angels appeared to shepherds in the fields outside of Bethlehem, they declared, “Peace on earth, good will to men.” But centuries before, God had offered a clue about the mission of the coming Messiah when Isaiah said He would be called the “Prince of Peace.” How is it possible that a baby born in a barn to a poor refugee couple could bring about the peace that had so long eluded the wisest and most powerful kings? And if…

Everlasting Father

The Bible tells us that in “the fullness of time God sent forth His Son,” but even before the birth of Jesus, the great Advent Conspiracy had long been underway. One of the aliases the Prophet Isaiah gave Jesus was the “Everlasting Father.” Jewish and Christian scholars have debated this name for centuries.

One of those clues was that He would be called “Mighty God.” This Hebrew phrase literally means “Hero-God.” God came to us in human flesh, the ultimate superhero in disguise. He would not only rescue us from sin and death, He would defeat those enemies once and for all. Join us for part two of Alias where…

Wonderful Counselor

In fact, 700 years before the angel appeared to the shepherds, God spoke through the prophet Isaiah to give us four important clues about the coming Messiah. One of the aliases Isaiah used to describe Jesus was “Wonderful Counselor.” When we think about a counselor, we may think about a mental health professional, a religious adviser, a lawyer, or someone who gives advice…

The Prince of Peace

Despite the promises of peace made by kings and politicians throughout the ages, the kingdoms of this world are constantly at war. When Isaiah announced the promise of a coming Savior, he called Him the “Prince of Peace.” Seven hundred years later, when the angels announced the birth of Jesus, they declared, “peace on earth, good will toward men.” The Son of God was called the Prince of Peace and then the Son of God told His followers that if…
