He Shall Be Called, Part 1
Isaiah’s prophesy was given to the people of God to give hope—a desperately needed hope—that a child would be born to fulfill the Davidic Covenant. The titles he would bear were given: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. That Isaiah would call the Messiah the Wonderful Counselor indicates the kind of character this coming king has. The word Wonderful is much weightier than the way it is used today. Jesus is wonderful in a way that is boggling to the mind; we can’t comprehend it. Jesus’ kind of wonderful is awe-inspiring and superior to any other kind, for He is perfect in every way. When we look at Jesus as our Wonderful Counselor, we need to realize that there is nothing that we need counsel on that He can’t give counsel for. His position as our Wonderful Counselor means that we can trust Him to listen to our problems and to guide us in the right direction.
Jesus is Mighty God. Isaiah gave us the picture that the Messiah will be personal, yet powerful. He will be able to calm our fears, and able to calm the sea. He is all-powerful and mighty to save. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy for December 15, 2019.
Isaiah 9:6 NIV
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 40:28–29 NIV
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
