The Father And Son Are One

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne:

The Father And Son Are One

“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of peace”

Isaiah 9:6

Wait - how can this be? How can the son who “will be given to us” be also called “Eternal Father?” How can this be possible? How can God, our “Eternal Father,” also be, at the same time, the “child” who “will be born to us?

The answer lays before us, in the two titles given between “Child” and “Eternal Father.”

I invite you to behold the miraculous unfolding of our God’s love for us in this way.

Our “Eternal Father” desired to be close to us, so close in fact, in His presence and fellowship, that He would actually be known to and by us as our “Wonderful Counselor.”

So, Because He is “Mighty God,” He decided it would be best to come to us in the form of a gift, of an innocent “child” who would be “born to us,” a “son” who would be been “given to us.”

This was how God chose to close the gap between mankind and Himself.

This is how our “Eternal Father” decided to become our “Wonderful Counselor;” through His power of “Mighty God” in becoming a “child” Who has been “born to us” and “given to us.” Do you see how beautifully this all fits together?

This can only mean that the Father and the Son are one.
