His Name Shall Be Called… The Everlasting Father

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

His name shall be called…The everlasting Father,
Isaiah 9:6.

There was a story of a foreign missionary’s son who had remained in America. The boy kept a picture of his father over his desk. At Christmas one of the boy’s friends asked, “What would you like most to have this Christmas?’

The young man replied without hesitation, “I would like for my father to step out of that Picture.”

H. C. Gabhart wrote, “In Christ, God did just that.”

What is the Meaning Behind This?

The name Everlasting Father or Father of eternity carries with it the idea of tender care and immortal life, beautifully blended. Jesus has much to do with eternity. As Everlasting Father, Jesus said, “Before Abraham was, I am” (John 8:58) He is now our reigning Lord, and He is Lord of all future time. “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Heb. 13:8).

As Father of eternity He has never been a forsaking Father, nor a vindictive Father, nor a jealous Father. He has always been a forgiving Father, and ever-present Father, and a loving Father.

Dying persons need and have an undying Christ. Living persons need and have a living Christ. All of God’s children need an everlasting Father who will provide guidance, love, and peace. Jesus is the One. Trust Him and you will see. Amen.

Perhaps through our witness of wonderful joy we can lead the unsaved to the saving knowledge of Christ.  What do you think?

Maybe Take A Closer Look

God knows our heart therefore we might as well be honest with Him.  If we have not received answers to our prayers, perhaps we need to take a close look at ourselves.  We know that God still answers prayer—that is not debatable.  We know that He still performs miracles and that is not debatable.  We know that some people still get through all of the “stuff” of this life to get to God for the miracles that they need.

Born Again

When Jesus told Nicodemus that he must be born again it was beyond the man to comprehend even as it is to modern man. Nicodemus would later come to understand and would become a follower of Christ. If you don’t know Christ in the full pardon of your sins; just watch those who truly believe.
