I find it very interesting in Isaiah 9:6 at the beginning of the list of names given to Jesus in this prophetic passage, that the word “name” is both singular and says more than just a label or title. The word “name” refers to Jesus “renown, fame and reputation. That is so important when we consider the name of Jesus.
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6). These names given in this verse are proof that He will have a government that will rule the world with perfect justice, righteousness and peace. “Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this” (9:7).
Consider that fact that Jesus was “upholding the universe by the word of His power” (Hebrews 1:3) even while a babe in lowly conditions of a manger. He never ceased to be what He was (God) by what He became (man). The two conditions or natures coexisted in Him. “Who, though He was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men” (Philippians 2:6–7).
These thoughts are best contemplated than explained. When we do, we are led to worship.
