NKJV (Isaiah 9: 6) 6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called:
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
In the previous article, we spoke about the unique teachings of Jesus about inner peace and about the age of the Prince of Peace on the new earth. And about Jesus teachings to love in peace even our enemies and to pray for them. We also have talked about the Sprout, the Prince of Peace, who will hold peace talks with his Father on the new earth. (Zechariah 6:13)
In what period did Isaiah get the vision of the Prince of Peace?
A brief historical overview;
The vision of the Prince of Peace
The book of Isaiah was written around 750-700 before Christ.
After the death of King Solomon, the Jewish nation was divided and two kingdoms emerged, the southern two-tribe kingdom of Judah (or Judea) and the northern ten-tribe kingdom of Israel.
The northern ten-tribe kingdom of Israel, with its wicked kings, was taken by Assyria:
NKJV (2 Kings 17: 6-8,12) 6 In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria took Samaria and carried Israel away to Assyria, and placed them in Halah and by the Habor, the River of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes. 7 For so it was that the children of Israel had sinned against the Lord their God, who had brought them up out of the land of Egypt, from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and they had feared other gods, 8 and had walked in the statutes of the nations whom the Lord had cast out from before the children of Israel, and of the kings of Israel, which they had made….. 12 for they served idols, of which the Lord had said to them, “You shall not do this thing.”
