Peace of Mind – Peace of God



The Prince of Peace has come to establish peace on earth. The first order of business is Peace with God (reconciling rebellious humans with the Holy God). Having peace with God then sets one up to experience the Peace of God (a peace that surpasses understanding and earthly circumstances). As the LORD told through Isaiah and Paul, a peace that guards the heart and mind.

Peace with God



Peace is more than a cool down in hostilities.  In Hebrew, Shalom includes a wholeness from righteous rule that brings justice and fruitfulness for all.  And that kind of peace can only happen once we are at peace with God.  What does that mean?  Peace with God is when repentant sinners are surrendered to King Jesus to receive His forgiveness as purchased at His cross.  Hence He is known as the Prince of Peace.

His Name is Wonderful



The LORD sent Isaiah with a message of repentance and a reminder that God would keep His promises. And the big promise was that the Messiah would still descend from David to defeat the serpent and establish a better kingdom. Isaiah 7:14 is the start of this section and in culminates here with the fourfold double description of the Messiah to be born of the virgin. We have reason to celebrate!

Favor with God



It is easy to consider the Christian religion to be a series of “do’s” and “do not’s” but that is inaccurate.  Rather, Christianity is an emphatic “done” in Christ for Jesus proclaimed from the cross, “It is finished!”  And these messages are no different.  We take the time to hear from God how Christ gave us favor with God, when we needed it most.
Christ increased in favor with God on our behalf.
