Written by Eugene May, 21 December 2014:
The prophet Isaiah wrote, “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.” We know that this prophetic word was fulfilled with the birth and life of our Savior, Jesus.
The phrase, “…the GOVERNMENT will be upon His shoulder,” is of particular interest to me. Why? It is because it speaks of His “CONTROL,” and the truth that God has “…put all things under His feet.” Jesus did not come into this world to simply be “The Baby of Bethlehem,” He came to take the “POSITION” and “AUTHORITY” as “KING.”
Isaiah not only wrote concerning His “POSITION” and “AUTHORITY,” he wrote about His “SACRIFICE” on our behalf: “Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows…and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” Jesus took upon Himself everything that could be used to destroy and condemn us so that we can reign with Him.
Child of God, Jesus, the “KING,” came into this world to experience life as a man in order to take everything that could bring destruction into your life upon Him. This he did for you so that you could reign with Him. You, who were plagued with human frailties, are now seated in the throne with Him.
“For God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…”
