who have the first fruits of the Spirit, INTRODUCTION: It’s an unlovely tree in an unlikely place with an unmistakable message. Because other parts of the Bible say that God is pele, is wonderful, there is no doubt that when Isaiah calls this promised Child pele he means to say that he was divine, that this would be God Himself coming in the form of a child. Behold, all things have become new. This is the God of salvation. waiting for adoption, the redemption of our body.”. May the joy of Christmas and the reality of the New Creation be yours, now and always. In that verse it is talking about God. Isaiah 9:1-7 For Unto Us a Child Is Born (McLarty), All Rights Reserved | © 1997-2020 Richard Niell Donovan. A.   MightyWhat comes to mind when you hear someone described as “mighty”?Literally, the root word used here is “gibbor”, which means “hero”, a doer of great things, of mighty acts done for someone else that they couldn’t do for themselves.Has anyone driven down the HWY 410 from Trenton to Toronto? Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV) “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. I can only imagine the experience from a mother’s perspective. When he was only five, my son, John, learned this little song by Bill Gaither and sang it in church one Sunday morning. What we celebrate at Christmas is actually the beginning of a new way of life made possible by the birth,life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, • … a new way of life when “nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they learn war any more.” (Micah 4:3), • … a new way of life when “The wolf will live with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the young goat; The calf, the young lion, and the fattened calf together; and a little child will lead them.” (Isaiah 11:6), • … a new way of life when “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28), • … a new way of life when “…God himself will be with them as their God.

That was the year we had this big community-wide Easter sunrise service in Prosper, Texas. It goes, “I am a promise, I am a possibility; But in the case of Jesus’ birth, there’s more, for wrapped up in the birth of Jesus are not only the hopes and dreams of Mary and Joseph, but the hopes and dreams of all creation. But as I will show in a moment, this is totally impossible.It is appropriate to read these words at Christmas because they were clearly fulfilled in the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s Son. And His name will be called. And this is the Good News: “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Love will be our greatest strength, and the willingness to forgive, our defining trait; and every time we see an act of kindness, especially toward one who can’t begin to reciprocate or repay, we’ll know that the New Creation of Jesus Christ is near. But all things are of God, who reconciled us to himself through Jesus Christ, and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation…” (2 Corinthians 5:17-18).
