Isaiah 9:6 is a prophetic passage pointing to the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ. Isaiah writes of a child who would be born and given to humanity, carrying the weight of the government upon His shoulders. This child is described with several titles, each reflecting different aspects of His divine nature and mission.

In Jesus, we find a Wonderful Counselor, who offers us guidance and wisdom in every aspect of our lives. He is the Mighty God, with all power and authority, capable of transforming lives and performing miracles. Jesus is also the Everlasting Father, providing love, protection, and care for His children. Lastly, He is the Prince of Peace, bringing peace and reconciliation between God and humanity.
