Old Testament Prophecy


The Prophecy - All Of This Will Be Caused By The LORD Of Hosts
Old Testament Prophecy
New Testament Fulfillment
For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this. (Isaiah 9:6-7)
Matthew 19:26 Scroll

Description Of Prophecy:

It is the LORD Himself, not man, who will bring all of this about. Give credit where credit is due. Praise the LORD!


The Isaiah 9:6 Prophecy Comes To An End.

As we come to the end of this prophecy in Isaiah 9:6-7 it is important to understand that all of this prophecy comes our way because of what God has done and not because of what man has done. God inspired Isaiah to teach us through the Holy Spirit, about the coming Messiah, His characteristics and titles along with confirmation that He would reign in a future kingdom. Mans only contribution can be repentance for sin and out of appreciation for forgiveness develop a zeal or passion to take part in bringing about Gods' will.


Traditional Jewish Commentary.

God's Zeal on behalf of His people. (Rashi)(1)

Because God is the cause we have assurance of the fulfillment of the promise.(1)

God is sovereign over everything and everyone.

Related Prophecies:

There is another prophecy that proclaims the Messiah as being both God and man. For more on this please read about the Divine nature of our Savior found in the Isaiah 43:11 prophecy. It is this same divine nature, with all parts working together to form one compound unity, being One God, that enables this prophecy to be fulfilled even today.

Prophecy Review:

Each part of this prophecy is a prophecy in of itself, meaning there are at least 9 different individual prophecies contained inside this one announcement of Isaiah 9:6-7.

The 9 teach us that:

  1. This person would be born a child
  2. He would be a Son that would be given (unearned)
  3. He would rule over a kingdom which makes Him a King
  4. As a wonderful Counselor His wisdom would be well known
  5. With the title "Mighty God" His divinity should be without question
  6. He would be a Father to His children
  7. He would provide a great peace
  8. There will be no end, meaning these titles would stay with the Messiah throughout eternity
  9. All of this will be caused through zeal by God Himself

Articles related to the Isaiah 9:6 prophecy include:

The title of the Lord here (LORD of Hosts) is the exact same title used in Isaiah 6:3 when Isaiah is taken before the throne of God and commissioned to be a prophet.
