    New video in the series -

    Isaiah prophecied that the Messiah to come would be called "Counsellor", what did Isaiah mean when he referred to Christ as the Counsellor, and how do Christians receive Counsel from the Lord today?

    Always wondered about this verse.

    If it's talking about Jesus and Jesus is GOD - according to many, or at least a 3rd of God - why does it call Jesus

    a) mighty god and not almighty God?

    b) the prince of peace? If Jesus is God/God is Jesus, shouldn't God Almighty be the king of peace? Was God demoted to become just a prince?

    Just a side note; like you, most Bible translations assign a capital 'G' to the 'god' mentioned in Isaiah 9:6, and yet Strong's Concordance demonstrates that this 'god' can be defined in a variety of ways. Pick your own interpretation.

    god, god-like one, mighty one

    1. mighty men, men of rank, mighty heroes

    2. angels

    3. god, false god, (demons, imaginations)

    4. God, the one true God, Jehovah
