Seven hundred years before the birth of Christ, the prophet Isaiah prophesied about the coming Messiah. In chapter 9 of the book of Isaiah it says “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… . 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. 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 Messiah has come. And that’s good news worth celebrating today!  Merry Christmas!
