Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD Our Peace - The Prince Of Peace - The Just Judge - The Praise Of God - The Perfection Of God
The Prince Of Peace
Of the increase of [His] government and peace [there will be] no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
God promised through the prophet Isaiah that He would send a Savior to provide perfect peace. This Savior would be Israel’s Messiah, the Prince of Peace. The concept of the Messiah as the “Prince of Peace,” deals with His perfection to administrate and distribute the righteousness of God. How can the Messiah do this? The zeal of God will make this happen! Isaiah wrote that the Prince of Peace would also be called Mighty God and Everlasting Father. So, God Himself vowed to take the form of flesh to judge the corruption that keeps His people from receiving the benefits of His righteousness, through peace only He can give.
