ISAIAH CHAPTER 9:6 IS THE CHILD REALLY JESUS?

ISAIAH CHAPTER 9:6 IS THE CHILD REALLY JESUS?

WHO IS THE PROPHESIED CHILD IN ISAIAH CHAPTER 9?

We must now read for ourselves and find out who the child is in Isaiah Chapter 9. My Brothers and Sisters hopefully God will show you what He has revealed to me. This is an entirely different child altogether.

Isaiah prophesied about more than one child. We know now that the first child was a sign for King Ahaz from God that the nations of Samaria and Israel would not conquer the nation of Judah. Therefore when the child was born they would call the child Immanu-El as confirmation that God’s word was true and that He was with them/Judah in battle against their enemies.

Now this SECOND child in chapter 9 is a different child altogether. This prophecy announces the birth of a special King and military leader. Before we get to the birth of the child let me give you a brief overview so that you will understand why the prophecy was necessary. To do so we must go back a little to the conclusion of chapter 8.

In Chapter 8 verse 6, God tells Isaiah that the people of Jerusalem are planning to reject Him and instead think that they will be safe by asking King Rezin and King Pekah to join forces with them. For such disobedience God gives clear instruction of what the consequences will be.

The people still refuse and God strengthens the hands of the Assyrian armies to crush Judah and to take them into captivity. Wow!For their stupidity all of Israel is now starving, beaten severely,the children are burned, killed, tortured and so forth. The two nations that they put their faith in are destroyed as well because God chose Assyria to do his bidding. Assyria is sent by God to kill and torture all of Israel. Oh but wait! There is hope on the horizon! That new hope starts in the very first verse in Chapter 9.

  • NEVERTHELESS the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations. ISAIAH 9:1 KJV

Notice the key word for us in this verse is: Nevertheless. The understanding of this word is very crucial to God’s contextual point!

This word means: however, or “ON THE OTHER HAND.”

In Chapter 9 verses 1 through 8, after suffering such a shameful fate and God sends Isaiah to the captives for consolation. In the beginning of this chapter God says:

“ON THE OTHER HAND I will not punish you forever!”

God promises these Jews who walked in darkness that their suffering won’t last forever. Isaiah gives a new prophecy of redemption from Assyria. In verses 1 through 5, Isaiah cheerfully tells these Jews that they soon will see the power of the Lord breaking their chains and giving them their freedom!

They have repented and now a great light has come of them! God is sending their deliverer; a regular man who will be born in their midst. God is promising a “Messiah/King” to deliver them in the near future. God then promises that this King has just been born and will come through their very ranks. Now we can go on to read for understanding of the next verse:

  • “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, Counselor, the Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6

Notice what Isaiah is saying here. After promising freedom Isaiah says:

“For unto us, a child is born, unto us a son is given.”

Now we can see that God is saying three distinct things in this verse two of them in the present tense and one in the future tense!

1.   A “CHILD/KING” has just BEEN born. (Present tense)

The child is coming from those who are in the captivity right now! Notice again that it says a child HAS been born to us. This is an event that has just occurred, not an event in the future. A future event would say A Child “will” be born to us or A Child “shall” be born to us.

This is not what the verse says. Since the birth happened in Isaiah’s lifetime it could not refer to Jesus, who was born many hundreds of years later.

2.   A “SON/MALE/KING” has just BEEN born. (Present tense)

For more clarity Isaiah repeats himself and lets the slave know that the prophetic child/king is alive now and this child/king will free them from Assyria.

3.     The Government SHALL BE on his shoulder. (FutureTense).

Isaiah continues and says that this very child is the “SON” or descendant of King David will have government ruler ship. In other words this child will be the new King of Judah at the proper time. Until that time they will have to endure punishment because of their sins.

Now the confusion arises in the next series of King James translations. Again think about the context below.

  •          “HIS NAME” shall be called WONDERFUL,COUNSELOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING,FATHERPRINCE OF PEACE.” Isaiah 9:6

Now you might ask:

Can these titles be given to an ordinary man?

My answer is yes. Let me explain.

The simplest explanation here is you must remember soon this child will be the new King of the Jews. God is promising the Jews that their King will be the key figure who is in leadership when God brings the Jews out of the Assyrian captivity.

Isaiah tells the people to rejoice because their King/Messiah has already been born. Isaiah then tells the people about their rescuer. After this King is ordained by God to free the people, the Jews then will proclaim the king is a literal Messiah/Anointed/Christ that is sent from God. Isaiah then tells us the names the people in celebration will begin to call the person who finally rescues them.

  1. They will call this King “WONDERFUL” for bringing them out of bondage.
  2. They will call this King “COUNSELOR” because this man will sit on the throne of His father David and teach or council the people the Laws of YHWH given by Moses all the days of His rulership.
  3. They will call this King a “PEACEFUL” Ruler because he will execute justice for the poor, widows and the fatherless under His authority all throughout his reign.

He is called a Peaceful ruler not the Prince of Peace. That is stupid if you think of it. Why would Isaiah reduce a King’s title down to the title of a “PRINCE?” Would that make any sense to you?As you can see the non

Jewish translators are the ones who have this wrong.

Now someone will definitely ask the question:

“What about him being called

the Mighty God and Everlasting Father?”

That is a valid question because of the way the King James Bible writers have translated this verse as well. The answer to this question is: NO, the King is not going to be called the Mighty God or Everlasting Father at all.

So it has to be a prophecy about Jesus right? No it is not a prophecy about Jesus either. Remember in the New Testament Jesus was never called the Mighty God or the Everlasting Father either.

Jesus always gave praise to the Everlasting Father throughout the New Testament. Knowing that fact then everyone should conclude that this verse is not about Jesus either. The confusion started when the translators tried to break down the Hebrew phrase: Pele Joez -El Gibbor-Ed-Al- shalom. 

Isaiah never expected this great King or Jesus or anyone else to actually be known as YHWH the Eternal Father at all. I will prove this point with word for word scripture farther down in this chapter. Now even the Christian biased Strong’s Concordance points out something that is of great interest to the “Mighty God” theory proposed by the translators.

Strong’s Ref. # 410 Romanized ‘el, Pronounced: ale

Shortened from HSN0352strength; as adjective, mighty; especially the Almighty (but used also of any deity):

Now according to Strong’s, the KJV gives these meaning for the Hebrew word “’EL”:

KJV–God (god), X goodly,X great, idol, might (-y one), power, strong. Compare names in “-el.”

{{ Online Lexicons : http://lexiconcordance.com/hebrew/0410.html }}

Notice just how many different definitions there are for the phrase in verse 9:6. Now if I am purposely trying to influence the world and prove to everyone that Jesus is this person prophesied by Isaiah of course I am going to substitute a word that will further help substantiate my belief system.

As you can see if we were to use any of the other terms that naturally apply to the Hebrew word ‘EL then the pro-Christian theory loses all credibility.

So instead of this man being called the Mighty God, this man or King will be called by his followers merely as a strong or mighty one. Not a deity at all!Can you now see the deception my Brothers and Sisters?

If we re-write Isaiah 9:6 and use anyone of the other definitions given by the King James and the Strong’s Concordance scholars then we will get Isaiah’s true message from the verse:

  • “For unto us(HEBREWS/JEWS IN CAPTIVITY), 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, Counselor, A Mighty One, forever, a man of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 KJV

Just by placing another unbiased definition in this verse we can see how verse 6 ties in with verses 01 through 5. With this change no one in their right minds will think that the person prophesied in this verse is supernatural in nature at all.

Think on these points for a second:

1.     If Jesus’ name is the “Eternal Father,” then why don’t we call Jesus “Eternal Father”? Why didn’t the New Testament writers?

2.     If this King is to be literally accepted as the actual Eternal Father why is he to rule on David’s throne forever? Who is ruling in heaven if the Everlasting Father is on earth hmm?

3.     If Jesus is the MIGHTY GOD who does He pray to even when He is“ALONE?” Was it to Himself? That would make Him crazy, right?

(I guess only if He answers…)

4.     If Jesus is the “KING of kings” then why would He be called the

PRINCE of peace?”

So as you can see theologians never really seem to think of the obvious.

Now remember I just told you that I would also prove that Isaiah9:6 wasn’t calling the Messiah the Mighty God? Well let’s look at the following verse that says these words:

  • Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:7 KJV

Notice the two underlined words in the text above. If Jesus is God as Christians claim then ask yourself:

“What Increase shall this man have?”

I mean God owns everything right?

So common sense lets you know that when the bible says this person’s government will continue to “INCREASE” the bible is simply telling us that God will bless that one particular King’s reign all the days of his mortal life. Notice how the second underlined word in verse 7 confirms this when it says, the “zeal” or power of YHWH will perform this great miracle.

Again common sense people! God is not reigning on the throne of David because God is letting the King reign. This is the very reason why God is sending Isaiah to the captives to encourage them while they are about to be at their lowest point. God is promising an anointed one to once again sit on David’s throne nothing more!

You have to understand the entire context of what Isaiah is writing. Isaiah is in no way interweaving futuristic prophecies of an end times Messiah into his writings.

That is stupid.Verse 6 runs right into verse 7 in context and verse 7 runs directly into verse 8 and so on. Notice Isaiah continues to speak in the “present tense” form of writing.

Verse 9 almost guarantees the fact that verse 6, and 7 are only for the captives of Assyria when it says the following:

  • “And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria.” Isaiah 9:9 KJV

The theologians are totally wrong when they tell us that verses 6 and 7 speak of a futuristic prophecy of a Messiah.

This is easily proven by simply reading the verses that follow in context. In verse 9, Isaiah clearly says that Ephraim and all of the people of Samaria will be alive to see this prophecy come to fruition.

This means that this child king is born during a time period when Ephraim/Samaria is still a functioning nation.

Remember two chapters earlier in Isaiah 7: God said that Ephraim will cease to be a nation? Jeremiah confirms this too!

  •          And I will cast you out of my sight, as I have cast out all your brethren, even the whole seed of Ephraim. Jeremiah 7:15

Wow the bible is amazing! You wanted the proof and the bible gave you the truth that you asked for!

These verses that you have just read prove without question that Isaiah was not giving a prophecy about Jesus. During the lifetime of Jesus Ephraim/Samaria was not a viable nation and Jesus was never a King.

So what answers can your ministers possible give that will explain away these two damaging facts? They will not have any for you. Since you now know more than he does maybe you will be able to teach him something now…

So to recap what we’ve now learned, Isaiah was merely telling us the name attributes associated with the notoriety of the human king and that this man will become a legend to the Jews by what he does. Other Old Testament writers also tell about this human king and just like Isaiah they also speak of the associated attributes the people will give to this prophesied human king:

  • “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous branch and A KING shall reign and PROSPER, and shall execute JUDGMENT and JUSTICE in the EARTH. In “HIS DAYS”,JUDAH shall be saved and ISRAEL shall dwell SAFELY and THIS IS HIS NAME whereby HE shall be called, the LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” JEREMIAH 23:5, 6

So just like Isaiah’s words God is telling the captives that He will do several distinct things

1.   God will rise up a Righteous branch or a new Jewish nation.

2.   God will rise up a new human king.

3.   The human king will be very “Righteous.”

4.   The king will be prosperous or reign in prosperity.

5.   The king will cause judgment and justice in or (on) the earth.

6.   This judgment and justice will happen during his days or “lifespan.”

7.   Because of this prophesied king, Judah and Israel will finally be safe and return back to their homeland.

Wow! That is a lot of revelations in just two verses. …

Now do you know of anyone in the New Testament that has fulfilled any of these requirements? Wow, neither do I…

In this verse, Jeremiah gives identical name attributes as in Isaiah’s scripture. Compare this verse to Isaiah 9:6:

1.     JEREMIAH says:

  • “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a RIGHTEOUS branch and A (KING) shall REIGN and (PROSPER). JEREMIAH 23:5,

Jeremiah says a “SON” of David shall reign on the throne. Does Isaiah’s prophecy tell us the same thing?

2.     ISAIAH says:

  •  “For unto us a (SON) is given; and the GOVERNMENT shall be upon (HISSHOULDER).” ISAIAH 9:6

Isaiah and Jeremiah both prophesy of the son of David’s ascension to the throne during troubled times. Let’s look at more especially the underlined words in the next verses:

3.     JEREMIAH says:

  • A (KING) shall reign and prosper, and shall execute (JUDGMENT)and JUSTICE in the earth. In his days, Judah shall be SAVED, and Israel shall dwell safely.” Jeremiah 23:6,KJV

According to Jeremiah, this king shall successfully reign asking and PROSPER.He will execute and establish JUDGMENT and JUSTICE in his kingdom throughout all of (HIS DAYS). Key words: In His Days. This means during that king’s lifetime.What does Isaiah’s prophecy have to say?

4.      ISAIAH says:

  • Of HIS government and (PEACE) there shall be no end, upon the throne of DAVID, and upon His kingdom, to order it, and to (ESTABLISH) it with (JUDGMENT) and with Justice from henceforth even forever.” Isaiah 9:7 KJV

Again both prophecies are exactly the same. Notice the first words of the verse tell us what will happen during the king’s lifetime. It says during “his” governmental reign, peace will not end just like Jeremiah also says.

The key words in this verse are, “henceforth EVEN forever.”

Now what does that phrase mean? Well it definitely does not mean that this king will be in power forever. Even though the Jews sinfulness placed them in this predicament they knew this phrase meant that God would once again honor his promises to David.

The Jews knew that as long as they obeyed God’s laws and statutes Judah would never cease to have a king sitting on the throne of David until the end of time. That is what is meant by henceforth and forever. Now you know…

If you read Psalms 89 you will truly understand the context of the Jeremiah and Isaiah texts. Below I have taken the liberty to give you an excerpt below for those too lazy to read the Psalms for an understanding on their own. Focus on the underlined words in the text and you will see the truth:

PSALM 89

26.  He shall cry unto me, thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.

27.  Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.

28.  My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall standfast with

him.

29.  His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of

heaven.

30.  If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments;

31.  If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;

32.  Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.

33.  Nevertheless my loving kindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my

faithfulness to fail.

34.  My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

35.  Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.

36.  His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.

37.  It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven.

Isn’t it amazing what true revelations come forth with just a little scriptural reading?

Now you can fully understand what Isaiah and Jeremiah are trying to say about the new king of Israel. So Isaiah 9:6 is a prophecy of a new King who would free them from their oppression and not a prophecy of Jesus’alleged second coming.

With the blessings and power of God this human king will be on the throne of David when God frees Judah and Israel from their Assyrian oppressors. Isaiah agrees with Jeremiah that Judah and Israel will be saved:

  •          “20. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of“ISRAEL,” and such as are escaped of the house of “JACOB,”shall no more again stay upon him that smote “them…” 21. The Remnant shall return even the remnant of “JACOB, unto the might God.” Isaiah 10:20,21

Jeremiah23:5, 6, Isaiah 9:6,7 and Isaiah 10:21, 22 identical prophecies of redemption by two different Prophets!

So now you can understand the true meaning of Isaiah (9:6).

You have to remember one important thing people of God. Just like a disobedient child still has to face a spanking or punishment for his sins the Jews still have to endure their punishment as well.

Their human king is born, yes, but the prophetic fulfillment will not occur for many years until he is of age to actually sit on the throne.

Next we will see that both Prophets also give distinct characteristic attributes for this new king as well.

Let’s start with Jeremiah first and then move on to Isaiah…

Remember we just read about the righteous king that God would place on the throne to reign and execute justice and judgment. Now here comes the deception the Christian churches have purposely left out. Now Jeremiah verse 6 ends as follows in the King James Bible:

  •          “This is HIS NAME” whereby HE shall be called, the LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” Jeremiah 23:6 KJV

After reading this verse we all would assume that this king possibly Jesus is actually being proclaimed the LORD/GOD right?

Wrong!

In reading the Hebrew/Jewish versions of this Old Testament verse Isaiah is crystal clear to us in what his point was. Let’s look at other versions for clarity:

  •          “In his days Judah will triumph and Israel live in safety. And this is the NAME”  he will be called, YAHWEH-is-our-Saving-Justice.” New Jerusalem with Apocrypha Jeremiah 23:6

Do you need a more Christian version of this truth?

  •         “In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely; and this is HIS NAME” whereby he shall be called: JEHOVAH our righteousness.” American Standard Jeremiah 23:6

Jeremiah never says the human king is the actual true and living God Yahweh.

No king has or ever will be known by such a blasphemous claim.

Jeremiah is simply letting us know the prophetic name attributes of the new human king that will reign on the throne when Judah and Israel are finally free from their captors.

Because of his actions the will be called by those ONLY in Judah and Israel who now live in safety as the Lord our righteousness. 

The first half of the verse proves this point for us with the very first words in verse 6:

In his days Judah will triumph and Israel live in safety.” Jeremiah 23:6 KJV

Jeremiah clearly lets us know that this event is happening in a period of time when Judah and Israel are in a state of bondage which proves this prophecy is not concerning Jesus.

Lastly, Isaiah repeats the same name attributes when he says:

  • HIS NAME” shall be called: WONDERFUL, COUNSELOR, MIGHTY, GOD, EVERLASTING, FATHER, PRINCE OF PEACE.” Isaiah 9:6 KJV

Can you see why the Greco-Roman Church couldn’t allow us to learn the truth?

Isaiah wasn’t prophesying about the 1st coming of Jesus or the 2nd coming of Jesus at all. Jeremiah and Isaiah tell the same story the same way. Isaiah says:

“The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah9:7 KJV

So clearly both Isaiah and Jeremiah are saying this King will be sent by YHWH and it is only by the ZEAL/POWER of God that will make the people free.

The Mighty God is not going to place Himself on the throne that is simply ridiculous.

Jesus said many times that the Everlasting Father is the one who taught Him and granted Him certain limited powers to perform His miracles.

So Jesus wouldn’t ever think to blaspheme God and call Himself the Mighty God. We have been lied to…

  • “Of HIS government and peace there shall be no end.” Isaiah 9:7 KJV

Hear me clearly people! This was not a promise that any person would have an Eternal government forever. Isaiah is telling us that there all war will end and Judah and Israel will be at peace as long as this particular king lives. God appoints this King to sit on the throne of David and to rule His kingdom with judgment and justice. A Christian may ask:

What about the words “from henceforth even forever?”How can Hezekiah’s kingdom last forever?

Let’s look at Exodus 21:5-6:

  •          “But if the bondsman shall say, “I love my master, my wife, and my children — I shall not go free.” Then his master shall bring him to the court and shall bring him to the door or to the doorpost, and his master shall bore through his ear with the awl, and he shall serve him “FOREVER.” Isaiah 9:7

L`olaam”(everlasting)is the Hebrew word for FOREVER.

This word can mean for all eternity or for a longtime depending upon the context. Obviously a slave can’t serve his master forever he will eventually die or be set free so we must understand the Jewish context of the verse.

In the context of the scriptures:

Of HIS government and PEACE there shall be no end.”

Since this is a righteous King, God is confirming the promises to David that there will be a descendant on his throne. Listen as God once again confirms a similar promise with David’s seed, His son Solomon. Again look at the underlined words:

  • “And (IF) thou wilt walk before me, as “DAVID” thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments Then I will establish the throne of Thy KINGDOM upon Israel “FOREVER” as I “PROMISED DAVID” thy father, saying, There shall “NOT” fail thee a man upon the “THRONE” of Israel.” 1st Kings 9:4 KJV

Now did Solomon’s kingdom last FOREVER as the scriptures just proclaimed?

 NO,OF COURSE NOT!!!!

Solomon’s kingdom did not last forever and neither did David’s.  So as you can see, the use of Forever did not mean throughout all Eternity as our Christian Theologians want us to believe.

The use only refers to a considerable length of time such as the individual’s own life span. The length of time each King and his Princes reigned in power was always conditional to following God’s Laws and Judgments. Read Psalms 89:29-37

29.  His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.

30.  If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments;

31.  If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;

32.  Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.

35.  Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.

36.  His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.

37.  It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven.

This “forever”promise is not just limited to just Psalms 89 but also repeat over and over for the Jews in other chapters as well!

  •          “The LORD hath sworn in truth unto DAVID’ he will not turn from it; of the “FRUIT/SEED” of thy body will I set upon thy THRONE. PSALMS 132:11,

“IF” THY CHILDREN” will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, “THEIR CHILDREN” shall“ALSO” sit upon thy THRONE FOREVERMORE.” PSALMS132:11

So as you can see the word “forever” in context is “CONDITIONAL” and is limited to

a specific amount of time.

This peace is limited to the presiding King’s own lifetime.

If the king’s children are obedient to God laws and statutes then they too shall enjoy good fortune on the throne during their tenure as well. Nothing else is needed to say on this subject so now let’s move on…

We have learned so much from the true context of these verses but we still need to know just “WHO” actually became king? Then let’s find out just who this person is. This person will have to fulfill several things to qualify as heir apparent to the prophecies of Isaiah 9:6 and Jeremiah 23:6 such as:

1.   He must be a Descendant of David.

2.   He must be a Righteous person.

3.   He must be born during the time of the Assyrian Captivity.

4.   Assyria must be defeated during this King’s reign & life time.

5.   Judah & Israel must safely return home from their captives.

6.   Judah & Israel will remain safe during this King’s life span.

7.   He must be heralded by the people with great names attributes and accolades for his accomplishments.

8.   He must acknowledge the fact that Isaiah is prophesying specifically about Him.

In the next chapter we will reveal the identity of the child king of Isaiah 9…

FULFILLMENT OF THE PROPHETIC CHILD OF ISAIAH Chapter 9

As we now continue in this chapter, we will search the scriptures to find out which child fulfilled the prophecies of Isaiah 9:6 and Jeremiah 23:6. As we said earlier whoever this person is, he will have to fulfill several distinctive requirements to qualify as an heir apparent to these prophecies such as:

1.   He must be a Descendant of David.

2.   He must be a Righteous person.

3.   He must be born during the time of the Assyrian Captivity.

4.   Assyria must be defeated during this King’s reign & life time.

5.   Judah & Israel must safely return home from their captives.

6.   Judah & Israel will remain safe during this King’s life span.

7.   He must be heralded by the people with great names attributes and accolades for his accomplishments.

8.   He must acknowledge the fact that Isaiah is prophesying specifically about Him.

Christians tell us that these prophecies are about Jesus.However, the Jews and Muslims proclaim this historical prophecy was about the reign of King Hezekiah.So who is right? Well let’s take each attribute and search the bible for the true king that has all of these qualities. This is the only way to see which religion is telling us the truth.

1.   He must be a Descendant of David.

a)    “Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that HEZEKIAH son of AHAZ king of Judah began to reign. Twenty and five years old when he began to reign: and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. And he did ALL that which was right in the sight of the Lord,according to all that (DAVID) HIS FATHER did.” 2ND KI.18:1, 2

2.   He must be a Righteous person.

a)    And he did ALL that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that (DAVID) HIS FATHER did.” 2ND Kings 18:2

b)    And thus did HEZEKIAH throughout all Judah and wrought that which was “GOOD” and “RIGHT” and “TRUTH” before the Lord “HIS GOD.” 2nd CHRONICLES 31:20, 21

3.   He must be born during the time of the Assyrian Captivity.

a)    13.  Now in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah did Sennacherib king of Assyria come up against all the fenced cities of Judah,and took them. 2ND Kings 18:13

b)    Now it came to pass in the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, that Sen-nach’-er-ibking of ASSYRIA came up against all the defenced cities of JUDAH and took them.” Isaiah36:1

Wow!

Even ISAIAH,the original writer of the prophetic verses 6 & 7 of Isaiah chapter 9, has given us the actual fulfillment of his original prophetic verses during his OWN lifetime as well.

Isaiah says after the Assyrians invaded the cities of Judah, the prophetic king did something extraordinary: He decided to pray to his God for the destruction of his enemies Assyria!

  • 15. And Hezekiah prayed unto the Lord, saying… 20.  Now therefore, O Lord our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the Lord, even thou only. Isaiah 37:15 &20

So this king knows the power of prayer! He prays for the destruction of the Assyrian king and his armies. Let’s move on:

4.   Assyria must be defeated during this King’s reign and lifetime.

Prophetic scriptures:

I.    Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited. And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, saith the Lord, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem. ISAIAH 31:8-9

II.    Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent unto Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Whereas thou hast prayed tome against Sennacherib king of Assyria: Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land. ISAIAH 37:7

Now Isaiah says that during this king’s reign, the Assyrian armies will be defeated and the rest of the Assyrian armies shall tremble in fear at the ensign of God which is the King of Judah. Isaiah also says that the King of Assyria also die but not during this battle. God is going to cause the Assyrian king to die in his own land.

Fulfillment Scriptures:

The Death of the Assyrian Army:

a)    “Then the angel of the Lord went forth, and SMOTE in the camp of the ASSYRIANS a hundred and fourscore and five thousand; and when they arose early in the morning, behold,they were all dead corpses.” Isaiah 37:36-38: 2nd KINGS19:35-37: and 2nd Chronicles 32:20, 22

Isn’t it wonderful to know that God’s word never fails?! God’s prophecy was fulfilled by King Hezekiah and the other Old Testament books confirm this-same prophetic fulfillment as well:

The Death of the Assyrian King:

b)    “So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh. And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Armenia: and Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.”

So far King Hezekiah has fulfilled all of Isaiah’s prophecies perfectly don’t you agree? Let’s continue…

5.   Judah and Israel must safely return home from their captives.

a)    Now when all this was finished, all Israel that were present went out to the cities of Judah, and brake the images in pieces, and cut down the groves, and threw down the high places and the altars out of all Judah and Benjamin.

Then all the children of Israel returned, every man to his possession, into their own cities. 2. And Hezekiah appointed the courses of the priests and the Levites after their courses, every man according to his service… 2nd Chronicles31:1, 2 KJV

b)    “And for this cause HEZEKIAH the king and the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz, prayed and cried to heaven. “THUS” the Lord saved HEZEKIAH and the inhabitants of JERUSALEM from the hand of Sennacherib the king of ASSYRIA, and from the hand of ALL OTHER,and guided them on every side.” 2nd CHRONICLES 32:20&22

So during King Hezekiah’s reign on David’s throne, the prophecy of Isaiah chapter 9:6 were accomplished and/or fulfilled. Israel did return home to Jerusalem and their other provinces.

6.   Judah and Israel will remain safe during the king’s lifetime.

a)    20 And the LORD HEARKENED to HEZEKIAH, and HEALED the people.” 2nd CHRON. 30:10-13, 20

  • b)    “And all the congregation of Judah, with the priests and the Levites, and all the congregation that came out of Israel, and the strangers that came out of the land of Israel, and that dwelt in Judah, REJOICED.  So there was great joy in Jerusalem: for since the time of Solomon the SON of DAVID king of Israel there was NOT THE LIKE in Jerusalem.  2nd CHRONICLES 30:25-27

Wow! Israel is now safe under the rule of King Hezekiah.

The bible even goes as far as saying that this miraculous event was:

I.    Pre-told by the Prophet Isaiah.

II.    It happened “suddenly,”

III.    All of Israel and Judah rejoiced because of the victorious human king.

IV.    Since the reign of Solomon no other human king had performed such a miracle in Jerusalem.

7.   He must be worshiped and celebrated by the people with adoration gifts and great name attributes for his accomplishments and accolades.

a)    “He trusted in the Lord God of Israel: so that AFTER HIM was None like HIM among all the kings of Judah nor ANY that were Before HIM for he clave to the Lord, and departed NOT from following him but KEPT his commandments which the LORD commanded Moses And the Lord was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth: and he rebelled against the king of Assyria, and served him not..” 2ndKINGS 18:5, 6, 7.

b)    “And thus did HEZEKIAH throughout all Judah, and wrought that which was “GOOD” and “RIGHT” and “TRUTH” before the LORD HIS GOD.  And in every work that (HE) began in the service of the House of God, and in the LAW, and in the COMMANDMENTS, to seek HIS GOD, he did it with all his heart, and“PROSPERED.” 2nd CHRONICLES31:20, 21

c)    23.  And many brought gifts unto the Lord to Jerusalem, and presents to Hezekiah king

of Judah: so that he was magnified in the sight of all nations from thenceforth.

So here we have the proof in writing that King Hezekiah is the one who fulfilled the prophecies of Isaiah and Jeremiah. Now we have one more criteria to answer:

8.   He must acknowledge the fact that Isaiah is prophesying specifically about him.

a)    “Now the rest of the acts of HEZEKIAH and HIS GOODNESS,behold, they are WRITTEN in the VISION of “ISAIAH” the prophet, the son of Amoz, and in the BOOK of the KINGS of JUDAH and ISRAEL.” 2ND CHRONICLES 32:32

b)    “Then said HEZEKIAH unto ISAIAH, Good is the WORD of the Lord which THOU hast SPOKEN, and HE SAID, is it not GOOD, if(PEACE) and (TRUTH) be in MY DAYS.” 2nd KINGS 20:19

Here we have two different writers who claim the vision or “prophecies”of Isaiah are about King Hezekiah! Is that true? What does Isaiah have to say about such claims?

c)    “Then said HEZEKIAH to ISAIAH, Good is the WORD of the Lord“THOU” has spoken  He said moreover,for there shall be(PEACE) and (TRUTH) in MY DAYS” ISAIAH 39:8

Wow! That was the nail in the proverbial coffin don’t you think? What vision could they possibly be talking about hmm?

The book of Isaiah says the other writers were correct when they proclaim the prophecies in Isaiah are about their King Hezekiah.Notice how Hezekiah tells Isaiah that the words of YHWH are true which Isaiah has prophesied. Hezekiah then repeats the words of the prophecy which says:There shall be “PEACE” and “TRUTH” in “MY DAYS.” Now what prophecy do you think that could be?

  • “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, Counselor, the Mighty God, The everlasting Father, the Prince of (PEACE).” Isaiah 9:6 KJV
  • “Of the increase of his government and (PEACE) there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9:7 KJV

PEACE& JUSTICE shall last throughout all of His “HIS DAYS.” Amazing isn’t it? Now ask yourself this question:

“WHY didn’t Isaiah correct King Hezekiah if the prophecies were NOT about him?”

Notice how Isaiah never corrected Hezekiah about his Chapter 9:6 prophecy?

As you can see they both tell us that our interpretations have been false all along.

Hezekiah cannot make it clearer to us that the Prophecies that Isaiah spoke in Chapter 9 were about HIM!

My Brothers and Sisters “HEZEKIAH”also knew that the Prophecies from God through the Prophets were all written about him and his reign.

We no longer have to guess who Isaiah speaks about. Isaiah’s own writings tell us point blank that it is King Hezekiah. How can you argue with the very writer of the gospel?

The false writers of the New Testament did not want you to study the Old Testament and learn the truth. The Greco-Roman false writers of Luke and Matthew invented a bloodline for Jesus just to fool the masses.

There is no other explanation for this heresy…

I have one more point to give you before we end this chapter.

As concerning the original prophecy of Isaiah:

  • “For unto us, a “CHILD” is born, unto us “SON” is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” Of HIS government and Peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of “DAVID”,and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”Isaiah 9:6 & 7KJV

Now Isaiah is doing the speaking in this verse as we can see.

According to Isaiah a child has just been birthed by someone within the group of captives that he is speaking to.

Now did Isaiah give us clues to this child? WHO is this son that God has given to this captive people?

We don’t have to guess because Isaiah tells us in a prophecy clearly not only who the father of the son is but also the era the child will actually sit on the throne:

  • “This is the message that came to (ME) the year KING AHAZ died, don’t rejoice, Philistines, that the “KING” that smote you is dead. That“ROD” is broken, yes, but “HIS SON” will be a “GREATER” scourge to you than his father “EVER WAS.” From the snake “WILL BE BORN”an adder, a fiery serpent to destroy you.” ISAIAH 14:28-29

There is not one person with reasonable intelligence on the planet who can twist this scripture into a Jesus prophecy. Isaiah just said this prophecy came to him:

  1. The year King Ahaz died so this is during Isaiah’s own lifetime.
  2.  Isaiah is warning the Philistines i.e. the ASSYRIANS not to rejoice just because the King Ahaz is dead. Which means this prophecy will be fulfilled during the Assyrian dynasty.
  3. Isaiah warns the Assyrians saying: The Old “ROD” is dead but King Ahaz’own son the prophesied “ROD” from Ahaz, and Jesse will be a greater King than all of them.”
  4. From the Snake i.e. Ahaz, a fiery serpent will destroy Assyria.

Now who is Ahaz’ son that took his place after his death?

You are correct if you said King Hezekiah.

The Philistines/Assyrians were not a threat during Jesus’lifetime!

So here once again Jesus is eliminated from the prophetic equation.

Lastly, Isaiah speaks directly to the Philistines and other enemies of that era and says this new King, the SON of Ahaz and Jesse,will destroy them.

As you can see, all of the prophecies concerning the King from the seed of Jesse and David all came true in the bible long before the enemies of Israel could twist the words and write a new false gospel and attempt to deceive us.

Do you remember all the name attributes associated with the king in Isaiah chapter 9:6? Isaiah continues to tell us the attributes of the king again. He tells us that the king has:

THE SPIRIT OF:

1. WISDOM

2. UNDERSTANDING

3. COUNSEL

4. MIGHT

5. KNOWLEDGE

Isn’t Isaiah now repeating chapter 9 again?

This man is not a deity at all as we can see.

Isaiah says the Spirit of the Almighty God will be with this King or on this King or however you decide to say it. God will give this King:

Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Might, and Knowledge

which my Brothers and Sisters are 5 attributes granted by God just as Isaiah said earlier in chapter 9:6&7!

Notice in the next two verses how they eliminate our chances of them speaking prophetically about Jesus as well:

  • “And shall make quick understanding in the fear of the Lord and he shall not (JUDGE) after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with RIGHTEOUSNESS shall he judge the poor and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the EARTH with the rod of his mouth and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.” ISAIAH 11:3-4

Clearly this man or King will show the world his power by trusting in God’s word. As ruler, he will not rule with his eyes and ears but with righteousness. He will not rely on might of his military armies, but it will be with his tongue and with his outcries to the Lord for help that he will slay the wicked men. Amen!

There are so many things said in the bible about King Hezekiah.Because of time restraints I’ve decided to only list the prophecies that were written exclusively about King Hezekiah.

You should read these verses in context on your own to discover what has been hidden for so long by the Catholic Church. This is just for your enjoyment. The Hezekiah prophecies are:

a.   Isaiah 9:6                            d. Jeremiah 23:5, 6

b.   Isaiah 10:34                         e. 2nd Chronicles 32:32

c.   Isaiah 11:1-4                       f.  2nd Kings 18:1, 2.

SUMMARY:

There is a song that I used to hear as a child on a children’s television show. The lyrics were:

“One of these things is not like the other, one of these things are not the same?”

I apply these lyrics to the way theologians want us to view the prophecies in the Old Testament. Now follow me for a second.

Which thing does NOT belong?

a.) Milk. B.) Potato. C.) Eggs. D.) Racecar?

If you said answer “D” you are correct.

Why? Because we can see that the other three are foods and you do not eat race cars.

So use that same reasoning when you read Isaiah Chapters 52-54.The people are slaves and are seeking a Savior not to die for their sins but to bring them out of bondage. Knowing the context the book of Isaiah is written in you would have to ask:

  1. If the people have nothing to eat or drink and are slaves in a land that is not their own why wouldn’t God tell them about a Messiah that would bring them out of Assyria now? That is asinine!
  1. Since the people are in so much suffering, would having knowledge about 700+ years in the future do them any good? Why would Isaiah now give them a prophecy of 700 years in the future? Why would they CARE?

Lastly, to recap what we have now learned. The true prophetic interpretation of Isaiah 9:6 is the rise of King Hezekiah to power and not about Jesus! The prophecy tells us that Hezekiah unlike Israel and Judah will trust in the Lord to deliver him and his people from Assyria.

The scriptures proclaim that he will rule his kingdom with peace and justice.

He shall reign all of his days with peace in his kingdom. This is not Jesus because Jesus was not born.

The Book of Isaiah not only tells of things to come, but we all have seen that the prophecies are also fulfilled in Isaiah’s writings along with the writings of the other books of the Old Testament as well. I love it when the true Gospel writers’ said concerning David’s son King Hezekiah:

  •         “He trusted in the Lord God of Israel: so that AFTER HIM was NONE like HIM among all the kings of JUDAH, NOR any that were BEFORE HIM.” 2nd KINGS 18:5, 6

I love it! The Old Testament Gospel writers proclaim that there was no king greater than Hezekiah and they also proclaim that there be no king in Judah like him either and that includes Jesus!

Now you know the truth. Will you let the truth set you free?

I say again Fast, Pray, and Study.  Read on your own to find the truth…
