Prince of Peace
A New Day in Paradise

Isaiah’s amazing prophetic word about the coming Messiah continues into chapter 11. In Chapter 11 Isaiah looks even farther into the future and sees the long-term blessing and impact of Jesus’ Advent. Jesus will be a righteous judge over a fallen world … He will bring equity and peace into our turmoil; and an amazing and glorious “final destination” for the people of faith! (Isaiah 9:6-7)
Jesus: Everlasting Father

Christmas through the eyes of Isaiah continues today with a look at the third of four titles Isaiah attributed to the coming Messiah 700 years before Jesus was born. Today our focus is on Jesus: Everlasting Father. God is the best gift giver…His gifts bring everlasting joy!
Jesus: Mighty God
Isaiah 9:6, Isaiah 7:14, Colossians 1:13-20 • December 16, 2018 • Pastor Jeff Beckett
Today Isaiah helps us focus on Jesus, Mighty God arriving in the flesh at Christmas. What irony to think of the one and only “Mighty God” wrapped in peasant rags, born in an animal shelter, laying in a manger. Isaiah tells us 700 years before Jesus’ birth that he would be no ordinary child, not just a teacher, prophet, healer or king … but he would in fact be the MIGHTY GOD of the universe come to humanity in the flesh to save us from sin and death! Today we examine why that is such good news for you.
Luke 2:8-13 • December 2, 2018 • Pastor Jeff Beckett
Our Advent Sermon series begins today. Based on Isaiah 9:6, we are exploring the gift of a Savior that Isaiah predicted and God delivered! God decided to mend our broken world personally, by sending a “wonderful counselor,” a wise and loving shepherd that could guide us to eternal life.
