~Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
The Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, the King of kings and the Lord of lords, is coming soon. It may not be today – but it will be soon. Just look at the condition of our earth! Yet, the Word says that these things are merely the beginning of sorrows!
Jesus did not want us to be in the dark because we are children of light! He was quite clear in His Word as to what we should be on the look-out for.
~Mat 24:4-5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. (4) For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. (5)
Here are just a couple, but we read about them almost every day now.
One need only do a Google search on news items and you will find a lot more!
~Matthew 24:6-7 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. (6) For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. (7)
One need only have the news on for a few minutes or read the first page of any newspaper to hear about nation rising against nation. It is part of our everyday life any more. Just in the past seven days, there have been countless earthquakes, according to USGS. Pestilence is running rampid all over our planet. Famines are not restricted to third world countries any more.
(Mat 24:8) All these are the beginning of sorrows.
So what, may you ask, does all of this gloom and doom have to do with Jesus being called Wonderful? The born-again Christian need not worry about what is going on around him. He is secure in his salvation because it was purchased by God Himself. The born-again Christian looks forward to the Rapture and being taken away from this cursed earth until the day that Christ will come again to make the earth new again and will reign as King!
~Matthew 24:50-51 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, (50) And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (51)
For the one who does not accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah and Saviour has much to fear. Go ahead and have your fun for your hour comes quickly. Not only will you have to suffer through the seven-year Tribulation, but you will have to spend an eternity in the Lake of Fire.
