Isaiah 9

Isaiah 9

Isaiah 9 Commentary

by Brad Boyles

Here we get a description of Jesus as a child, son, and eventually, prince. He is called the Prince of Peace. He follows in His Father’s footsteps.

The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

Romans 16:20 NASB

It’s interesting when you scour The Word to find all the ways in which Jesus and peace overlap.

  • He was brought from Heaven with a song of peace; (Luke 2:14)
  • He forgave sin and become our peace (Eph 2:14)
  • Ascending to Heaven, He granted peace to His followers (John 14:27)
  • He preached the Gospel of peace (Eph 2:17) and gave Christians armor containing peace (Eph 6:15)
  • He commissioned messengers of peace (Rom 10:15) and children of peace (Luke 10:6-9)

Jesus makes it clear that His peace is not like the world’s. It’s the peace the surpasses all understanding. The unbeliever cannot possess it. It’s what gives us composure during horrific times, melts away fear, and bonds God’s people together in perfect harmony. It’s the peace that will be complete upon entry to the New Heaven and New Earth when all believers from every tongue, nation and tribe will join together worshiping the Father in blissful peace.

Do you have peace in your life right now? Do you know the Prince of Peace? Think practically about your life right now and where you have allowed circumstances to steal your peace.

This is just what I needed to hear this morning. I have always loved these verses about Jesus in this book of the Bible. They empower us to refocus. Thank you both for your words
