YOUR PELE YO'EZ



Isaiah 9:6 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.


Hebrews 4:15-16 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need


Isaiah 53:3


"He was despised and rejected a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; ..."


 

Today we want to look at the prophetic title of Jesus that says he would be called the wonderful counselor. Wonderful counselor. These two English words come from two Hebrew words, pele yo'ez. This is what it means, Pele means beyond understanding. It means too wonderful for words. When Isaiah was going to describe the Savior of the world, Jesus, he didn't have the words to describe him. He used a word that said there are no words great enough to tell you just how awesome he is. He is too wonderful for words.


Yo'ez is the world translated as counselor. It means to advise or to consult or to guide. One day a son will be born, a child will be given to us, his name will be pele yo'ez. He will be the wonderful counselor. He is God in the flesh. He is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end and yet he knows you and cares for you and understands exactly what you're going through, therefore he can be your wonderful counselor.


I love the way it's described in Hebrews chapter 4:15-16, speaking of Jesus, our high priest. Scripture says, for we do not have a high priest who is unable to do what? Who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are, yet was without sin. Our high priest. Our Savior. Our wonderful counselor, Jesus, he's been through what we are going through. He's been tempted in every way that we're tempted yet he was without sin. He understands your pain. He understands your hurt. He has experienced life just as you have. (Isaiah 53:3 "He was despised and rejected a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; ...") That's why, Hebrews 4:16 says, let us then approach the throne of grace with (what?), we can come with confidence so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us (when?), to help us in our time of need. Some of you right know, if you were honest you would say, I'm in a significant time of need. The good news is there is one who is here to help. He is YOUR Pele Yo'ez. He is Jesus, the wonderful counselor. Thanks be to God!!
