LESSON 1:    NAMES OF CHRIST

Everybody has a name, great people, little people, rich and poor, educated or not. The most important Person in the universe is our Lord Jesus Christ, and He has the greatest names of all. The Bible tells us many of these names, and we will consider some of them in this lesson. God the Father wants to give honour to His Son, so we should ask Him to help us understand just what each name means. Find all he Bible verses and think about them. Then give thanks to the Lord Jesus for what He is and what He does.

1.         JESUS

First we will think about the Lord's Name as a Man. He received the Name Jesus when He became a Man and will have this name forever. God promised many times in the Old Testament that He would send a Saviour. When the time came He sent His angel Gabriel to a pure young woman named Mary, a descendant of King David. She lived in a small village called Nazareth in the province of Galilee. She had never married, but promised to become the wife of a descendant of David, whose name was Joseph. The angel told Mary that God's Spirit would come on her and she would have a son before she got married to Joseph. She should call Him JESUS and He would become great, be called the Son of the Most High God, and rule over Israel, Luke 1.26-33. "Son of God" tells who He always was in the past;  "Ruler over Israel", what He will be in the future. About three months later the same angel of the Lord told Joseph that Mary would have a Son before they were married. He told Joseph also that they should call His Name JESUS because He would save His people from their sins, Matthew 1.21. In Luke we learn who He is and will be; in Matthew, about His great work, saving sinners. The name Joshua in the Old Testament is the same as JESUS, and contains two words, Jehovah and Saviour. The New Testament is God's lesson about Jesus and we can find this Name over a thousand times in the New Testament, in every lesson except one, almost every chapter. God has commanded that every person will bow down at the Name of JESUS, Philippians 2.10. So JESUS is both Jehovah and the Saviour of the world. We will learn more about these names in later lessons and many more wonderful things about JESUS in these lessons.

                       
2.         WONDERFUL
In the beginning God promised that He would give men a Saviour to deliver them from their sins. Eve learned that her Son would destroy her enemy Satan, but He would be hurt also, Genesis 3.15. Later God promised Abraham that He would bless men of all nations through a Descendant of his, Genesis 22.18. Again the LORD promised David that his Descendant would be King forever, Psalm 89.3-4; 132.11-12. Now read Isaiah 9.6. The Holy Spirit was looking forward to the time when Christ should be born. This was really God giving His Son. He will carry the government of the world like a load on His shoulder. Then the Spirit told Israel to call their Saviour by five names. We will think about one of these names here, and the other four in the chapters, which follow. Some Bibles put the first two names together, but we will consider them separately. The Lord Jesus Christ is wonderful and His Name is Wonderful. We have seen that He is both God and Man, He is the Son of the Highest, yet was born as a Baby whose Name is Jesus. He is the Saviour of His people, and all His work is wonderful. The Son loved men even before He came into this world. Sometimes His Father sent Him to reveal Himself to men for a special purpose. The word "angel" means one who is sent, and we believe that the Angel of the LORD is another Name for the Son before He was born as a Man. The "Angel of the LORD" brought a message from God to Manoah, the father of Samson, and his wife. The Angel used this same word when he said His Name was Wonderful, Judges 13.18, although some Bibles are a little different. All the works of God are wonderful, Exodus 15.11; Psalms 77.11,14; 89.5; 139.14. We shall see Christ as the Creator in chapter *4. Even on earth He did many wonders, Matthew 21.15; Luke 4.22; John 20.30; Hebrews 2.4. But His greatest work was to die on the cross so that He might become our Saviour. Let us think of the Wonderful One and give Him our thanks and praise for all that He is and all that He has done! Isaiah 25.1.

                               
3.         COUNSELLOR
The second Name for the Child, the Son, in Isaiah 9.6, is Counsellor. We have seen that His work is Wonderful, and His counsel is also, Isaiah 28.29. King David's uncle Jonathan was a good counsellor, 1 Chronicles 27.32. Even kings need wise friends to help them make the right decisions. We all require the wisdom of God to guide us in this evil world. Christ is our Counsellor. God has all wisdom, He needs no one to advise Him, Isaiah 40.14; Romans 11.34. He never needs to change His counsel, Psalm 33.11; Isaiah 46.10. He loves to give counsel to men, Psalms 16.7; 73.24. They often refuse it, Psalm 107.11; Isaiah 5.18-19, and accept that of wicked men, Micah 6.16. God gave us His Son and Christ is the wisdom of God, 1 Corinthians 1.24. God gave the Holy Spirit to Christ without any limits, John 3.34, the Spirit of wisdom, understanding and counsel, Isaiah 11.2. In the New Testament, the Lord called the Holy Spirit the Comforter or Counsellor, John 15.26, and the same word is used for the Lord Jesus in 1 John 2.1. Christ. Christ is now in glory and counsels us, Revelation 3.18, to buy:  real gold, by saving up treasures in heaven, Matthew 6.20; white clothing, by living righteous lives, Revelation 19.8; and  eye medicine, so we can see the glory of the Lord and walk in His ways. The Lord Jesus gave sight to the blind man by making clay and putting it on his eyes, John 9.6. The Lord has all wisdom and He gives it freely to those who need it and ask for it, James 1.5-7. But you must ask in faith and believe that God has given it to you. If you doubt you should not expect an answer. Christ is the great Counsellor. 

 

4.         THE MIGHTY GOD

His Name shall be called The Mighty God. Whose Name? The child born, the Son given. His Name is The Mighty God because He is the Mighty God, Romans 1.4. There is only one true God, Deuteronomy 6.4. The first Command is to worship no other god, Exodus 20.3. He will not give His glory to any one else, Isaiah 42.8; 48.11. Why then did God announce through His servant Isaiah that Messiah's Name would be the Mighty God? God is saying in this Name that He Himself would come to be the Saviour of His people. We have seen this truth even in the Name Jesus. God has all power, Deuteronomy 10.17; Psalm 24.8; Isaiah 10.21; Jeremiah 32.18; Daniel 2.20; Zephaniah 3.17; Ephesians 1.19. He created heaven and earth, angels, men, animals. In the New Testament we learn that this was God the Son, John 1.3,14; Colossians 1.16; Hebrews 1.2. The word "mighty" usually means a "mighty man". In our verse it is used of God, but of God who became a Man. The Son did not give up His power as God when He became Man. He showed His power over demons, disease and death, Mark 5.2,8,29,34,41. He could control animals, fish, wind and waves, Matthew 17.27; Mark 4.37,39; 11.2,7; John 21.6. He had more power than John the Baptist had and did more miracles than any other person, Luke 3.16; John 15.24. The Son created the world and keeps everything in place, Colossians 1.17. He is the power of God, as well as His wisdom, 1 Corinthians 1.24; *3 Today He is able to save completely and forever any man, Hebrews 7.25. Soon He will come with great power, Matthew 24.30; Mark 13.26; Luke 21.27. Truly He is The Mighty God.

 

5.         THE FATHER OF ETERNITY

In the New Testament we learn that God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We read many times about God our Father and the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament God or Jehovah is called Father in a few verses only. In the New Testament we learn that we have been born again, that God is our Father, and that we have His nature in us, 1 Peter 1.2-3,23; 2 Peter 1.4. Our verse in Isaiah 9.6 speaks about our coming Saviour, the Messiah, and tells us He is God, the Mighty God. God is eternal, He has no beginning and no ending. God always was, in the eternal ages of the past. He always will be in the eternal ages of the future. In eternity past He planned out the different ages of time, we could say He is the "Father of the ages". Indeed in this verse, Eternal Father or Father of Eternity means the same as Father of the ages. The Holy Spirit used this Name for God in 1 Timothy 1.17: Eternal King or King of the Ages. The Greek New Testament says that God created "the ages" through His Son, or formed them through the word which He spoke, Hebrews 1.2; 11.3. In Isaiah 9.6 He is saying that the coming Saviour is none other than God Himself. Jehovah said He would come, the Mighty God, to save His people,  God planned the ages before time began, 1 Corinthians 2.7; Ephesians 1.4; 1 Peter 1.20. These ages are sometimes called "dispensations". God treats men differently in each dispensation, for example, under law, and now under grace, John 1.17; Romans 6.14. This does not mean that God changes, Psalm 102.27. He gives man an opportunity under each dispensation, but all ages end up in failure. It is wonderful to know that God is all wise, the perfect Counsellor, and that He has complete control over all the ages of time. He can never fail, no being could defeat His purposes, no demon, or Satan, or any man, or all men and all demons together. The Mighty God is also the Creator of all ages. He became Man to save us from our sins, but men rejected Him, and still do. Some day He will return as the King of glory,  Are you ready? or are you still rejecting Him?

 

6.         PRINCE OF PEACE

God has always loved men. Eve and Adam fell into sin and at once they were afraid and hid themselves. Since then all men have sinned and are rightly afraid of God. Satan can use this fear and tell us that God does not love us, one of his greatest lies. The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and so He made peace, Isaiah 53.5; Colossians 1.20. It is therefore possible for us to have peace with God through faith in Christ, Romans 5.1. Christ came to tell men about the love of God, to declare peace, Isaiah 52.7; Acts 10.36. So the Spirit tells us that Christ is our peace, Ephesians 2.14. We can also have the peace of God ruling in our hearts, Philippians 4.7. Christ gave His disciples peace, His peace, John 14.27, and gives it to us today. So the Spirit calls Him the Lord of peace, 2 Thessalonians 3.16. In our verse He is the Prince of Peace, Isaiah 9.6, and this means that He will rule the world in peace when He comes again. There will be no more war, Isaiah 2.4. The son of a king is a prince, and seven princes ruled in Jerusalem on the throne while their fathers were still living, for example, Jotham, 2 Kings 15.5: But our Lord Jesus Christ will rule as Prince of princes, Daniel 8.25, and Prince of all kings, Revelation 1.5. There will be no end to His rule and peace will increase until the end of the thousand year Millennium, Psalm 72.7; Isaiah 9.7. So today we can have the peace of the Prince of Peace in our hearts while we look forward to the wonderful time when He will give peace to the whole world.
