Christ is Our Counselor

Charles e Whisnant, Teacher  Outline/Notes:  April 2013

Isaiah 9:6-7

When the battle is over, the wars there shall come a period of peace.  For their weapons will be for burning, their cloths for food. A sign of victory. A high funeral pile to have victory.


The O.T. is like a thread that winds itself in and out of each book with a PROMISE AND PROPHECY which stretched on unbroken until the Son of Man comes.

The puzzle map was quickly put together because there was

A PREVISION:  There are a far reaching threads, a Sign  which has infinite meaning.  In a SEED, you have a Harvest.

4.  Prince-of-peace.

Isaiah could only see to a point:  we see the whole picture. He knew the Deliverer and He must filled out this outline to be the predicted Messiah:

  1. He must fill the imagination.
  2. He must satisfy the judgment
  3. He must satisfy the religious instinct.
  4. He must have a sense of brotherhood.
