The Prophet's Song - First Sunday in Advent (Isaiah 9:1-7)Tim Douglass, December 3, 2017
Part of the Advent 2017 series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Advent is upon us! For the next four Sundays we will be looking forward to the coming of Christ and preparing our hearts to celebrate His birth. This year, each week we are going to consider a different “song” in Scripture that relates to Advent. They aren’t all literally songs, but they do each have that sense to them. This first Sunday we are going to be studying the Prophet’s Song, looking at Isaiah 9. We will be talking about how God gave a message centuries before Jesus was born telling all about His character and His ministry. God wanted His people to anticipate the Messiah and to be prepared for Him when He came.

1Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations. 2The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. 3Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. 4For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian. 5For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire. 6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. (KJV)
