… and the government will be on His shoulders;
and He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Above wonderful words are describing Jesus Christ, the Messiah and Redeemer. They were written by Isaiah about 600 years before the birth of Jesus. How wonderfully glorious he praises Jesus in these words. This prophet could already see the Messiah and looked forward to Him with joy. Do we the same today in this dark and troublesom time?
Today there are many thyrants and dictators who oppress their people and enrich themselves from them. There is so much injustice and hunger in the world. There is almost no one who rules as Jesus would like to have it. They all rather want to command but no one is prepared to serve the next like Jesus. They want their richness and deny to give something to them.
Everything is twisted in them because the prince of this world has blinded their eyes. Good approaches and ideas are misused and turned into the opposite.The world is full of lies and fraud, of hate and homicide, of theft and bribery, lust and sex. Oh, come peace! If only the people would live according to the word of God!
At least in the church Jesus should be king! Prince of peace, Wonderful Counselor, Everlasting Father! And of couse also in our hearts. Then the Christian community lives as bride of Jesus. In our weakness, we are by far not perfect, we nevertheless want to build God
s kingdom with humility and in forgiveness and not by power and might and money. Jesus only is King in our church who wants to let us experience a part of heaven on earth, Gods kingdom and His peace.
Let us turn to Him intensively to let reshape our hearts in His image so that His church can be built. It will be a Noah`s ark for many people who long for peace and salvation. This Jesus likes!
Thank You, Jesus, You are the Prince of Peace! You fill my heart with peace which I want to pass on as Your messenger. I am safe in You, how wonderful!
