The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.
Isaiah 9-19-22. The Nation of Israel turned away from God and sought mediums and spiritists. The people became distressed and enraged, cursing their king and God. They saw only distress and darkness and fearful gloom, and were thrust into utter darkness.
People are still looking for answers to the darkness today and the answer is Jesus.
6 For unto us a Child is born,Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
