The Mighty God

Views: 4 454


Isaiah also called Jesus El Gibbon, “the Mighty God” (Isaiah 9:6). Although He “emptied himself” (“made Himself of no reputation”-KJV) to become a man (Philippians 2:7), Jesus never abandoned His divine attributes. Is it not paradoxical that the Mighty God should clothe Himself as a newborn child? If there is any question about Isaiah's view of this coming child, clearly here he indicates He is God incarnate. Scripture used the Hebrew word gibbon, translated “mighty,” not only of God but also of the “mighty men” who were soldiers of Israel distinguished in battle. It conveys the idea of exceptional physical strength and prowess. When used of God in the Old Testament, it expressed the assurance that God would defend Israel from her enemies (Psalms 24:8; 45:3). It emphasizes the relative attribute of omnipotence and suggests God will use that power on behalf of His people
