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.

What a description of this infant king born in Bethlehem. The prophet said, “His name shall be called wonderful”. This word in the hebrew language is pele. This is a powerfully descriptive little word about the very nature of this special child. This word means wonderful, supernatural, incomprehensible, and immediately tells us about the supernatural nature of Christ and everything related to Him. Albert Barnes spoke about the wonderful qualities associated with Christ.
“Anything which is suited to excite wonder and amazement, from any cause, will correspond with the sense of the Hebrew word. It is a word which expresses with surprising accuracy everything in relation to the Redeemer. For the Messiah was wonderful in all things. It was wonderful love by which God gave him, and by which he came; the manner of his birth was wonderful; his humility, his self-denial, his sorrows were wonderful; his mighty works were wonderful; his dying agonies were wonderful; and his resurrection, his ascension, were all suited to excite admiration and wonder.”
There was nothing ordinary about His life, but His birth could only be described as wonderful; born of a virgin, born in an animal stable, His birth announced by angelic appearances, signs in the heavens seen from hundreds of miles away. He was worshipped by kings and shepherds but despised and feared by those in positions of power. Civilization itself is centered on the birth of the child with the wonderful Name.
The Name of Jesus Christ has always carried that supernatural, wonderful quality about it. It is by faith in that Name that we receive salvation, it is through the power in that Name that the chains of sin and addictions are broken from off of our lives. There are healing qualities in His Name, everywhere He goes, people are healed from their diseases. Fear and depression are subject to that Name, the devils themselves flee in terror at the mention of the Name of Jesus. This special season, begin to recognize and honor the wonderful and supernatural nature of your relationship wih Christ, as you do, you will recognize just how wonderful He is to you on a daily basis.
