THE WONDERFUL COUNSELOR!
For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).
According to Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary of English, it defines the word, “Counselor” as a person who has been trained to advise people with problems, especially personal problems. The Bible says in the opening text that for unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
According to the passage, Jesus was referred to as the Wonderful Counselor. Without His counsel, a Christian cannot succeed in his life. We found this in the lives of the disciples who went for fishing expedition all through the night without success. Until Jesus came to counsel them thus, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.’ So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish” (John 21:6).
When Jesus Christ had fulfilled His ministry and He was about to ascend to the Father, He promised His disciples the advent of the Holy Spirit who is now our Wonderful Counselor thus, “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you” (John 14:26 NIV). The Holy Spirit is now our Wonderful Counselor continuing the work and ministry of Jesus.
Daily Tip: In this new dispensation, the Holy Spirit is now our Wonderful Counselor continuing the work and ministry of Jesus Christ. Shalom!
Golden Text: Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to your right hand or whenever you turn to the left (Isaiah 30:21).
