He is the Wonderful Counselor because He is all-knowing – He has absolute wisdom. He leads with knowledge of the way ahead. He speaks from His Word – full of righteousness with not even a hint of error. All His ways are right and true. His counsel is without cost, His office never closes, and He is never too busy to meet with you. Your Wonderful Counselor is only a whispered prayer away.
He is a Mighty God because He is all-powerful. This Child was born to save the world. He is a warrior who defeated the foe of His people. Only the enemy is not a human army; the enemy is death – that is, eternal separation from God. And He did not do battle with arrows or spears or any man-made weapon. He used a wooden cross and an empty tomb. “Death has been swallowed up in victory!” (1 Corinthians 15:54) and we will live forevermore.
He is our Everlasting Father because in Him is everlasting life. But not just an existence that never ends, It is about the uninterrupted presence of God and His everlasting love (Ps. 103:17), everlasting righteousness (Ps. 119:142), an everlasting kingdom (Ps. 145:113), everlasting Joy (Is. 35:10), everlasting salvation (Is. 47:17), everlasting kindness (Is. 54:8), everlasting light (Is 60:19, 20), and an everlasting name (Is. 56:5). It will be an everlasting paradise (Rev. 2:7)!He is the Prince of Peace who came to this earth, not in a castle, but in a stable. He came to bring us peace that cannot be broken. Certainly, in Him there is peace of mind and peace in the storm and peace between men, but Jesus Christ came that you and I might have even more – peace with our Creator. He came to lay His body down as a bridge between us and God, ensuring peace in the most important place of all, our souls.
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. What greater gift could there be, Beloved?
