Mighty God

Seven hundred years before Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem, God spoke through the prophet Isaiah to reveal four important clues about the coming Messiah. 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 we will learn that Jesus was more than a human savior; He was and is our Hero God. 

…His name shall be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
