TOPIC: HOPE IN THE BORN CHILD

TEXT: ISAIAH 9 : 1 - 12


Prophet Isaiah could see the future restoration of his people who were under captivity. God had promised them redemption through the Child that was already given vs. 6. It was message of hope for those who had been taken into captivity. The Lord assured His people who were under oppression and divine discipline that He would redeem them when they "shall look up unto born Child" (vs. 4-5).

The arrival and acceptance of the Child shall bring liberation from the yoke of sin and the peace that had eluded the world. "For the government shall be upon his shoulder because because He is Almighty...." Although God's judgement is imminent, His love and mercy shall come to their rescue, vs. 9-12. In our state of fear and the yoke of sin around our necks, Jesus is still calling man to come unto Him (Matt. 11:28-30).


QUESTION

Wherein lays the hope for true peace and righteous government which the world is searching for?


PRAYER

Grant me, O Lord, the grace to be a true link between the hopeless world and the promised Child, Jesus the Saviour, Amen.
