Our Prince of Peace – The Advent Season 2017 (Isaiah 9:6-7)


Introduction

1.  “Peace” = shalom = wholeness of body, soul and spirit

= completeness and perfection (1 Chronicles 29:19)

= everything as it should be (Genesis 1:31)

= everything new (Revelation 21:5)

2.  “Prince” = sar        = the one who has dominion

= the one who can remove anything that disturbs the peace

= the one who can finally secure peace among the nations (Micah 5:2-4)

3.  The announcement of the arrival of the Prince of Peace (Luke 2:8-14)

Why is Jesus Christ the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 61:1-2)?

1.   Because God makes peace with us only through Christ (Isaiah 53:5; Colossians 1:19-20; Ephesians 2:11-14; Romans 5:1).

2.  Because God makes peace through us who are in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20-21; Luke 4:18-19; Matthew 28:18-20).

3.  Because God offers us His peace, now, as we trust Christ (Proverbs 14:30; John 14:27; Philippians 4:4-7; Isaiah 26:3; 2 Thessalonians 3:16).

4.  Because God will establish peace on the earth through the government of Christ (Isaiah 9:6-7, 2:2-5, and 11:6-9; Hosea 2:18).

5.  Because God will take all of those who are in Christ to dwell in the environment of eternal peace (Revelation 21:3).
