Uncommon Crown

We need to recognize God’s incredible

Isaiah 9:1-5 – But there will be no gloom for her who was in anguish. In the former time he brought into contempt the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the latter time he has made glorious the way of the sea, the land beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations. [b] 2 [c]  The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone. 3  You have multiplied the nation; you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as they are glad when they divide the spoil. 4  For the yoke of his burden, and the staff for his shoulder the rod of his oppressor, you have broken as on the day of Midian. 5  For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult and every garment rolled in blood will be burned as fuel for the fire.

Matthew 4:12-16 – 12  Now when he heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew into Galilee.  13  And leaving Nazareth he went and lived in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali,  14  so that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: 15  “The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—16  the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light, and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death, on them a light has dawned.”

We need to know that this has a name like no other

Isaiah 9:6 – For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon [a]  his shoulder, and his name shall be called [b] Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

We all must admit that this is the kingdom we for

Isaiah 9:7 – Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
