"Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God" who still lives today

Read what Isaiah saw about the Savior: "unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6).

Over 2000 years ago, the Savior of the World was born in a humble stable, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. His coming had been prophesied of by Isaiah and many other prophets.

The Savior came, as Isaiah also said, "to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound," (Isaiah 61:1) and he did that for both the living and the dead.

This great latter-day work goes on still, for the living and the dead through missionary work, strengthening the members, and through the work of the dead in temples. This work will go on until, as the Standard of truth says, "The Great Jehovah shall say the work is done."

At that time, the work begun from before the foundations of the world will be complete, and the Sons and Daughters of God will dwell with him forever. 


As Isaiah did long ago, Prophets and Apostles today still testify of the Reality and Divinity of the Savior Jesus Christ, for they have seen him.  Their words testify, and the spirit bears witness, that Jesus Christ is real, that he lives, and still works for our Salvation, and he is at the head of this great latter-day work.  God be praised for the gift of his son, so that we may have the peace of the spirit in this life, and eternal life in the world to come. 

Become engaged in serving others, and in the work of the Lord. Always, may we ever seek out the Babe in Bethlehem, our Savior, Our Redeemer, our all.
