The five names given to Christ by Isaiah’s prophecy are not repetitious. Each one describes a different attribute of his character. As “Wonderful,” he is the awesome One, the God-in-the-flesh miracle worker. As “Counsellor,” he advises us of all things right and best. We do well to walk in the path he directs. As “mighty God,” he is the Divine One, very God of very God. He who knows him knows the Father also. As “everlasting Father,” he is a provider, protector, and disciplinarian for his children. Everything a good father is, he is. And now, as “Prince of Peace,” he gives his divine calm to those who trust him.
