Introduction

Isaiah 9:6–7 ESV
6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
Isaiah 9:1–7 ESV
1 But there will be no gloom for her who was in anguish. In the former time he brought into contempt the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the latter time he has made glorious the way of the sea, the land beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations. 2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone. 3 You have multiplied the nation; you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as they are glad when they divide the spoil. 4 For the yoke of his burden, and the staff for his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, you have broken as on the day of Midian. 5 For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult and every garment rolled in blood will be burned as fuel for the fire. 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

Jesus is our Wonderful Counselor

Counselor - Advisor, instructor, guide, teacher.
the instruction of Jesus saves us from so many pitfalls and pain.
Proverbs 11:14 ESV
Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.
Proverbs 24:6 ESV
for by wise guidance you can wage your war, and in abundance of counselors there is victory.
Jesus give us all these things, his teachings give us safety, they give us victory, they supply us with the wisdom to wage spiritual ware and live victorious lives by the Holy Spirit’s power.
Just think about all that Jesus has taught us about life and christians living:

1: Jesus taught us about love.

Matthew 22:37–39 ESV
37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
Matthew 22:37–38 ESV
37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment.
Jesus taught us that love wins against anger. That Love is not weak, but powerful. That love covers a multitude of sins. Jesus taught that not only must we love our friends and family but we must also love our enemies and pray for those who hate us.

2: Jesus taught about Forgiveness:

Matthew 18:21–22 ESV
21 Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Jesus taught that we must always be ready to forgive. That forgiveness flows out a heart that itself has been forgiven by God. How forgiveness sets us free from the constricting pain of bitterness unforgiveness.

3: Jesus taught us about right Judgment:

Matthew 7:3–5 ESV
3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
Matthew 7:3–4 ESV
3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye?
His teaching warn us about hypocrisy and self righteousness. About looking down on others. he taught that the important of a holy life so that we can help those who are sinning, having compassion on them for we know their struggle.

4: Jesus taught about Wealth and Poverty

Luke 12:15 ESV
15 And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
Jesus taught us that money is the goal of life. That how much money you have does not determine your life’s value. That you can be rich in the world but poor towards God and poor in the world but rich in the things of glory.
So many more: Prayer, Hypocrisy, God, Heaven, Hell....

Jesus is our Mighty God

A mighty God is able to supply might strength.
Isaiah 40:29–31 ESV
29 He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. 30 Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; 31 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Jesus is the father of eternity

This does not suggest that Jesus is the father. This passage describes the Son not the Father and the father and son are distinct in the God Head.
Father of eternity is a more literal translation. you must remember that Isaiah is a jewish book and in Jewish tradition Father means “originator” or “source”. For example:
John 8:44 ESV
44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Satan is the source of all lies.
Likewise Jesus is the source of all things eternal or everlasting. Jesus and Jesus alone can give us everlasting life because he is the source of everlasting. We cannot enjoy everlasting life with the Father without acquiring it through the son.
John 14:6 ESV
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Jesus is the Prince of Peace

There are two peaces that Jesus gives and when these two peaces are together the person is whole. The problem is most people seek the one and not the other.
Let me explain:
The first type and most important peace that Jesus gives us is Peace with God.
Romans 5:1 ESV
1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ has reconciled sinful with Holy God. By His sacrificial death on the cross Jesus satisfied the wrath of the Father and paid our spirit debt allowing us to have peace with God.
This peace that we have with God manifests in so many wonderful way, one of which is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
And the Holy Sprit produces in us the Fruit of the Spirit.
Galatians 5:22–23 ESV
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Galatians 5:1 ESV
1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
Notice the fruit of peace. This is what is referred to as the Peace OF God.
Philippians 4:7 ESV
7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Notice: Peace WITH God leads to the Peace OF God.
Peace with God is the condition in which the Peace of God will grow.
Peace comes from Jesus, but it remains by obedience. Anytime our relationship to God suffered, peace suffers. When we move out of God plan through sin and disobedience we switch off the environmental conditions for peace to grow.
Sin
Sin, rebellion, neglect all play a part in hindering peace. We must not pursue peace - we must pursue Jesus and peace will find us.
