Isaiah 9:6

December 7th, 2011

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Over the next few weeks we will be looking at the significance of the names and what they mean to us. Each one of these names reveals a different as aspect of the Savior. This week it is Wonderful Counselor.

We get this from two Hebrew word’s 
1. pele’; extraordinary, too wonderful for words, beyond understanding.

2. Ya`ats; To advise, to guide, to consult.

The pele’ ya`ats, the Wonderful Counselor. Jesus is the Wonderful Counselor He has been where you’ve been and where you are and will be where you are going      Isn’t that what we really need in a counselor? Someone who knows our pain, our weakness, our sickness, our lack?.

The book of Hebrews in the 4 chapter 15th and 16th versus tell’s us about a high priest who is able to sympathize because he has been through All of the same things that we have been through Yet he did not SIN. Jesus is that high priest and because of that we can go to God with confidence, or boldness when we need mercy and grace, when we need it the most.

It bears repeating: Jesus comes for the sick. Luke 5:31,32

Healthy people don’t need a doctor, sick people do. So I have a question for you?

                                Where are you sick?
You can fill in the blank, Depressed, fearful, stressed, financial, lonely, family, hurt, angry, illness? Jesus know your pain and there are is a pathway to healing. If we are willing to listen to the Counselor?

1. Be Brutally Honest with Him. John 4:16-17, Psalms 55:22
2. Listen To The Counselor’s Voice. Mark 9:7, John 10:27
3. Do what He Says. Mark 10:20-22

Jesus The Wonderful Counselor is speaking will you listen?? Unless we do what he says we will never be healthy, and that’s the way I see it in my market.

doing life.

December 1st, 2011

I’ve been thinking again……(sometimes not so good) here we are fast approaching Christmas all kinds of things going through my head. One thing keeps coming to the the top, this idea of doing life together.

One of the things the bible tells us at the very beginning in the book of Genesis is that God said “It is not good for man to be alone” so he made a helper for him and it was God’s custom to “walk in the garden.” Clearly it was His intention to be with us. Fast forward to the New testament and in the Gospel of Matthew 1:23 “The virgin will be with child and they will call him Immanuel” which means, “God with us.”

Move on ahead to the book of Acts we see that Jesus sends the Holy Spirit chapter 2:1-4 “our helper” again God is with us and then at the end of chapter 2:42-47 we see the Church the “Body of Christ.”

                                  “Doing life together” 

          Do you think there could be a pattern here?????? 

We where never meant to live by ourselves. Have you connected with Your Father????? If not, now would be a good time and that’s the way i see it in my market.
