Series: Advent: To Us a Child is Born
Category: Hope, Gospel
Speaker: Jason Williams
In the second sermon of our Advent series, we looked at how Jesus fulfilled the Isaiah 9:6 prophesy to come to earth as a Mighty God. The nation of Israel would have understood this prophetic title of the coming Messiah as a "God who is mighty in battle." In 1 Corinthians 15:24-26, the apostle Paul explains that, through His resurrection, Jesus overcomes all dominions, authorities, and powers, effectively defeating sin and death. This triumphant victory over the grave reveals His divine power and authority, fulfilling Isaiah's prophecy of a Messiah who would be a Mighty God who brings salvation. Jesus is the war hero who God sent to earth to conquer our greatest enemies: sin and death.
