Day 15 | Prophecy of the Prince of Peace

Day 15 | Prophecy of the Prince of Peace

Isaiah 9:2-7

Devotion

When we think of a crown, we think of royalty.  A king wears a crown.  That crown is a symbol of his power.  Everyone does whatever the king commands.  Jesus was born in a humble stable.  He wore a crown of thorns as He was crucified on the cross to pay for our sins.  One day He will come again as the King of Kings and every knee will bow down to Him.   

The prophet Isaiah told us that Jesus was coming as a child and that He would be the “Prince of Peace.”

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).

God’s people were looking for a King to come to bring peace in the land.  Jesus came to give us eternal peace.

Since the days of Noah, the dove has been known as a symbol of peace.  The dove returned to Noah with an olive branch in its mouth.  God’s judgment was over, and God established a new time of peace for His people. 

When Jesus was baptized, the Holy Spirit came down like a dove and proclaimed Him to be the Son of God.As we look forward to Christmas, let’s remember that Jesus came to bring peace to our troubled hearts and He wants to be your King and Lord.

Memory Verse | John 14:27

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Questions

  • Do you know Jesus as your Savior and King? 

  • Are you ready to celebrate Christmas, the time when Jesus first came to earth? 

  • Are you prepared to welcome Jesus when He comes for the second time? 

Prayer

Thank you, Father for sending Jesus to be my Savior, my King.  I want to serve you with my whole heart.
