{Advent} Jesus is our Mighty God

Jesus is our Mighty God
“For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given . . . 
And He will be called . . . Mighty God(Is. 9.6)

 "As He has wisdom [Counselor], so He has strength, to go through with His undertaking; He is able to save to the utmost; and such is the work of the Mediator that no less a power than that of the Mighty God could 
accomplish it." ~ Matthew Henry

Jesus is Mighty in strength 

. . . a mighty hand . . . and outstretched arm . . . (Deut 4.34, 5.15, 7.19, 11.2)

The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to where it sets. From Zion, perfect in beauty, God shines forth. Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before Him, and around Him a tempest rages. (Ps. 50.1-3) 

Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea— the Lord on high is mighty. (Ps. 93.4)

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. (1 Pet. 5.6) 

Jesus is Mighty in salvation

My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge. (Ps. 62.7)

Who is this coming . . . robed in splendor, striding forward in the greatness of His strength? “It is I [the LORD], proclaiming victory, mighty to save.” (Is. 63.1)

The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in His love He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing. (Zeph. 3.17)
 

Jesus ALONE is Mighty

For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome. (Deut. 10.17)

The Mighty One, God, the Lord! The Mighty One, God, the Lord! He knows! (Josh. 22.22)

Who is like You, Lord God Almighty? You, Lord, are mighty, and Your faithfulness surrounds You. (Ps. 89.8)

Great and mighty God, whose name is the Lord Almighty, great are Your purposes and mighty are Your deeds. (Jer. 32.18-19)
