    • For to us a child is born, to us a son is given and the government will be on his shoulders. Isaiah is writing prophetically about Jesus´s birth and the kind of authority and responsibility he will have.
      His names will be wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

      This reminds me of the Psalm that Jesus quotes, “The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I humble your enemies beneath your feet.” in Matthew 22:44 and also one of my favourites, Phillippians 2:6-9 about Jesus, “Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness…he humbled himself and became obedient to death- even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name…”

      Jesus humbled himself and made himself obedient to God, fulfilling Isaiah´s prophesies about being lifted up in authority and power.

      We can follow the example of Jesus and bring about his desires by submitting ourselves to the Father, even to death like the Egyptian martyrs who were recently killed.

      Jesus´s kingdom is without end because it is based on true authority, which begins with servanthood, and Justice and is established by God the Father and not the will of a man.

      We are affected by being linked into that kingdom as heirs (Galations 4:7) and we have both a hope of inheriting that kingdom and the frustration of being at conflict with the present state of injustice in our world.

    1. Isaiah 9:6-7 is clearly speaking of Yeshua (Jesus) via the promise that was made to David (see 1 Kings 8:25).
    2. Here is a list of corroborating verses referring to Yeshua as Savior, Prince of Peace, King… Etc.
    Daniel 2:44
    Psalm 61:16
    2 Samuel 7:12
    Revelation 19:6
    Zechariah 6:12-13
    Hebrews 1:8
    Jeremiah 23:5-6
    Psalm 72:7
    Isaiah 42:3-4
    3. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, the words increase and government in Hebrew translate to greatness and empire. So plugging the Hebrew words into the text it would read:
    There will be no end to the greatness of His empire or of peace (welfare).
    This to me means that though there is strife, warfare, attacks, etc [upon the righteous], there will never be a lack of His peace or welfare toward me. There is no limit to His reign and nothing too far off or too great for His government (empire) to reach.

  2. Isaiah 9:6-7, is talking about the prophecy of the birth of Jesus and and the Government will be upon His shoulder.

    2: The scriptures related to question 1 is, Genesis 3:15, Galatians 4:4 and Luke 1: 32-33 about His birth and His Government
    Daniel 7: 13-14, 1 Corinthians 15: 24-28, Revelation 11: 15 and Revelation 20: 4-10.
    There will be no end to His Government.

    3: His Rule and Authority still in affect forevermore. It is from Beginning to End because He is Beginning and the End, Alpha and Omega. His Dominion is from Everlasting, His Government will always be.

  3. The government here on earth is us. We must realize that and be audacious believers in our faith and spread the Spirit and cast it into those who are receptive and try with those who aren’t. The more you believe the more knowledge our Father will allow you to receive. You have to give every inch of yourself to him guys. Any of you that need prayer. I am here. I would love to get to know each of you. And plan to. Don’t give up. The devil knows the Bible like a Preacher. In your every day walk be hasty on who you listen to, for your mind is God’s temple, the devil wants to manifest in you. Pray for a hedge of protection, for that armour of God as soon as you awake in the morning. He will rain down knowledge and pour it in your soul, but you must give him every inch of yourself. And BELIEVE!!! He is your daddy and loves you more than you can conceive. More than the human mind can perceive. BUT if the Spirit is in you, you can be taken to places spiritually you might have never known. This man that has created this group has been a godsend to us. He has stepped out to help us on our walk with our Father. Praise the Lord!! You are all so special. Regardless of what you are going through, learn to immediately give it to God. We must read his word and fast over it. Amen!!!!

    The book Amos is mainly about God’s judgment of the surrounding nations of Israel and Israel itself. Amos, like Isaiah, is given the difficult task of pronouncing God’s judgment for the wickedness of the Israelites in that day. However, Isaiah’s prophetic messages contained much more insight on the Lord’s restoration and of the coming Messiah (in terms of his time). Amos, on the other hand, spoke prophetically of that day and age and very briefly on restoration. Interestingly enough, Amos never claimed to be a prophet but still travelled from his native land of Judah to northern Israel to speak what God commissioned him with. Nevertheless, both prophets spoke of impending doom [around the same time frame] to the rebellious nations.
    Another interesting comparison between the prophets is that both had visions of the Lord. Isaiah 6:1, he saw the Lord sitting on a throne proceeded by the Lord’s question in v. 8 “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Now Amos had a similar occurrence in v. 9:1 where he saw the Lord standing by the altar; however, prior to that in v.7 and again in v. 8 the Lord asks him “What do you see, Amos?” In both examples the Lord is bringing them into agreement with His purpose. With Isaiah it’s what’s to be spoken that he’s anointed and brought into God’s plan with. But in Amos’s case (similar to Jeremiah), God is asking if Amos sees what the Spirit is showing him, hence bringing him into alignment with God’s vision.

    In comparison to then and now, I think it relates back to Amos 3:7, The Lord does nothing without revealing His plans to His servants the prophets. The difference is if we are listening to God is saying. Back then God sent the prophets to forewarn the people of their wickedness giving them ample opportunity to turn away from sin and back to Him – with the prophets making intercession for the people. Today, we still have prophets, but now we have Jesus as our intercessor and we can all come freely to him. The Lord still reveals His plans to His prophets in order for us to pray, intercede, and prepare for what His prophesy reveals.

    (Sry, a little late)

    John the revelator is deemed to be John the beloved disciple of Jesus who was exiled to the isle of Patmos where he had the vision which led to writing the book of Revelation.
    John was “in the Spirit on the Lord’s day” when he heard the Lord speaking to him – which he was told to write down what he hears and sees.
    John saw the end times – but he saw it in the spirit realm. He saw the Angels releasing the 7 vials of wrath on earth (Rev. 16:1). He saw the martyred (Rev. 6:9, 20:4); he also saw Christ’s return (Rev. 19:11). Moreover, John saw Satan defeated (Rev 12:11) and the new Jerusalem that’s been prepared for us (Rev. 21:1-2). In a nutshell, John saw the end of time as it is here on earth but from the Lord’s perspective and a glimpse into eternity.
    John’s message was directed to the 7 churches in Asia (actual churches) but is still a significant representation of the church(es) throughout the world. The individual messages give us a clear thought from the Lord on what to strive for and to be wary of. For example, the church of Laodicea was lukewarm and ready to be spewed out; whereas, Philadelphia kept the commands and were faithful. In essence, the Lord addressed the church’s strengths and weaknesses and areas to improve upon and repent – main components are compromise, indifference, apostasy, and being lukewarm.
    In conclusion, John was given a warning [possibly] to the church to remain vigilant and persevere being ever watchful lest the church falls into one of the compromising states.

  9. Thank you, thank you! This is confirmation and I truly appreciate hearing this message / teaching today. And yes, there are a lot of untrained people. The vision I have for The Worship Center Junction City is to become a training and teaching center. God is GOOD! God bless.
