"THE SON BECAME A CHILD"

ISAIAH 9:6-7

  1. THE TIMES IN WHICH ISAIAH DELIVERED THIS MESSAGE WERE NOT UNLIKE OUR OWN
    1. Good Rulers Had Passed Off The Scene Only To Be Replaced With Bad Ones
    2. Ahaz, King Of Judah, Had Given Himself To The Ungodly Pattern Of The Kings Of The North
      1. Ironically, Ahaz' Greatest Enemies Were The Syrians And Pekah, King Of The Ten Northern Tribes Of Israel
      2. Isaiah Had Prophesied To Ahaz That God Would Not Allow The Conspiracy Of His Enemies To Prevail
      3. God Himself, Said That He Would Provide A Sign That David Would Never Lack A Man On That Throne (Isaiah 7:14)
      4. God Even Allowed Ahaz To See His Enemies Overrun By The Assyrian, Tiglath Pilesar
    3. The People Were In Distress And Deprivation And Darkness
  2. WHERE SIN HAD ABOUNDED, GRACE WOULD MUCH MORE ABOUND (9:1-7)
    1. Darkness Would Be Turned To Light (9:2)
    2. Joy Would Be Their Constant Experience (9:3)
    3. A Person Would Be Provided (9:6-7)
      1. Five Marvelous Titles To Describe The Manifold Nature Of His Work (9:6)
      2. Two Descriptions Of His Future Reign (9:7)
        1. Complete Justice
        2. Eternal Righteousness
