“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government will be upon His shoulder. And He will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Seven hundred years before the first Christmas, Isaiah dipped his pen in golden glory and wrote these words about the coming Prince of Peace, the Lord Jesus Christ. “A Child is born” speaks of His virgin birth. “A Son is given” speaks of His eternality—He has been the Son of God, co-existent, co-eternal, with the Father, through the ages.
Some fifty years ago, man first stepped onto the moon. The President of the United States said, “The planting of human feet upon the moon is the greatest event in human history.”
No, the greatest event in human history was when God came to Earth and planted His feet here. We call that the incarnation—Almighty God stepped out of Heaven, the ivory palaces, into a world of woe, and put His feet upon this earth. And that is the greatest event in human history!
Share this with someone you know today: The first Christmas, God sent a package to Earth, the marvelous gift of deity wrapped in humanity. It’s supernatural. Never forget this: Jesus is God in human flesh.
