Mighty God

Isaiah 9:6-7

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.

A child will be born:

  • The government will be on his shoulders
  • No end to his government and peace
  • His reign will be righteous and just
  • His reign will never end

                MIGHTY GOD in Hebrew is “El Gibbor

Gibbor – Refers to a mighty warrior

Hero – The one who defeats the enemy

El – Refers to God

What does Jesus being a mighty warrior look like for us?

  1. Jesus is able to do what he has promised

 

Colossians 2:13-15

When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross

John 10:27-30

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”

No one can snatch you out of Jesus’ hands

The devil’s weapon was – sin

What does Jesus being a mighty warrior look like for us?

  1. Jesus is able to do what he has promised
  2. He is able to help us where we need it

1 John 3:8

The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s works

& Jesus came to do even more than to destroy the devil’s works:

  • He has come to heal
  • He has come to restore relationships
  • He has come to build us up

               

1 Peter 3:22

Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him       

Matthew 28:18

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

Hebrews 1:3

“The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven
