“…AND HIS NAME SHALL BE CALLED…” PART IV
“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, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6
He is called the mighty God. He is also the Almighty God. He said to Abraham:
“And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.” – Genesis 17:1
This was the first time that God would refer to Himself as the Almighty. Looking at the context, Abram was ninety nine years old without a child. Though God had promised him that all the families of the earth shall be blessed through him. Genesis 12:1-3. It would take more than ordinary power to have a ninety nine year old man father a child. It is not surprising that God had to introduce Himself as the Almighty.
Brethren, the Almighty is not just able to make naturally impossible happen; the name Almighty is specially meant to handle naturally difficult situation when and where the name is invoked. You cannot have a revelation of the Almighty and be afraid anything visible or invisible. The psalmist said:
“The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?” – Psalm 118:6
He also said:
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.” – Psalm 91:1-4
The Psalmist was so sure of God’s protection because he had revelation of the Almighty status of God. The God we are talking about is not just one of the deities; He is the One that has all “mights” combined in Himself.
No matter how difficult or naturally impossible your situation looks like, the Almighty is more than able to convert your “going through” to breakthrough.
