Isaiah 9:6-7 THE BIRTH OF JESUS 12-22-12

It's the time of year that many places and people around the world remember the birth of our Wonderful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, so today we'll bring a message to do with this great truth.

* Listen as I read today's text found in Isaiah 9:6-7:
6-7 For 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, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
The first thing I want us to notice in verse 6 is that we're told that all 5 of these titles are not 5 different names, it say's here "his {name} singular, shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
At this time of year what is known as the "Christmas season" believers in Jesus Christ honor and remember His birth.
No one knows for certain what day or what month it was that He was born, some say it was in September, other say it's in October, today we'll not dwell to long on what the day or the month was, because what ever men might say to do with His real birth day is all speculation, so that's really not that important, but its most important for people to receive Him as their Lord and Savior.
Dear heart it would have been better for a person never to have been born if they die in their sins as Judas did;
> Mark 14:21-- good were it for that man if he had never been born.
The earliest prediction of Jesus Christ's birth occurred about 4000 B.C. and is recorded in Gen. 3:15, also there is the essential conflict between Satan and the Lord, and indicates that this conflict also will involve the people of God and the followers of Satan.

> Gen. 3:15. And I will put enmity* {hostility} between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel.

What this implies is, that as Satan's head is crushed with the heel of Jesus, Satan's head bruises His heel.
* The devils seed are "the children of the devil"
>Acts 13:8-10 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. 9Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him, 10And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?
Jesus said in;
> John 8: 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father
