* The season of Advent is a time to reflect upon the incarnation of Jesus the Christ (YHWH in the flesh) who came in order to be the payment of our sins. He did this in order that we might be reconciled to God and have peace with God. This was important in order that we might be able to live with God for all of eternity - eternal life does not begin after you die, but when you are reconciled to God!
* We see that thought very clearly as we consider the fourth of the names given to the "Child" who was to be given, the "Prince of Peace."
* These names are given within the context of a prophecy regarding He who would reign "upon the throne of David and over his kingdom." Hence, the ultimate fulfillment of the reign of this Child will His physical reign on Mount Zion. Yet, we see in the Scriptures that the Messiah began this fulfillment through His establishment of the spiritual kingdom through His work of reconciliation on the cross. (cf. Isaiah 9:6-7; Luke 1:30-33; 1:67-69, 76-79; 2:10-14)
