Text: For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).
In Isaiah’s day as well as in ours, there are things that cause God’s people distress and anguish. They may differ in complexity; they may vary in intensity, but there’s one thing that every problem and perplexity has in common – i.e. they have a beginning and they have an ending.
Speaking to their situation which is finite, there comes a voice of hope which resounds through the corridors of time and eternity. His name shall be called everlasting father!
Christ of eternity would step out of eternity into time! He is the Alpha and Omega. He has no beginning; He has no end.
He has no beginning, but He is the Beginning!
He has no ending, but He is the End!
From everlasting to everlasting He is the same.
You are the Beginning, you are the End,
The One Who was, is and is to come;
All may change, but change You will not,
Constant, till life’s journey is done
