Our Wonderful Christ

By the late Dr. Jack MacArthur, Voice of Calvary

“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

Dr. Jack MacArthur

Nearly 2,000 years ago a Jewish maiden went down into the mysterious land of motherhood and came back with a child. And it has well been said, to this child was given a name that blossoms on the pages of history like the flowers of a thousand spring times in the confines of a single garden. It is a name that echoes and re-echoes down the corridors of time like the music of a thousand choruses, visible and invisible, rising in crescendo, a glorious anthem. A name that adorns the record of the centuries like the splendor of a thousand monuments, built of the purest of precious stones. A name that is grander and greater and more glorious and more meaningful than all the other names of the world. And when this child became a man, behold what manner of man He was!

He had none of the usual advantages. His parents were poor. He never recruited an army. He never conquered a kingdom. He never owned any real estate. He never wrote a book. He never founded an institution of higher learning. He never painted a picture. He never composed any music. He was mocked and scorned by the great, and died the death of a common criminal. And yet, this peerless person has literally revolutionized the civilized world, and whatever semblance of civilization there is left in this thermonuclear bomb-threatened world in the midst of its night of darkness, unbelief and sin, is solely and only because of Him and because of His presence.

An ordained Baptist minister. Worked for 10 years with a Christian publishing ministry where I was the circulation manager for a growing publication, The Sword of the Lord. I also did most of direct mail fundraising and promotion. I have pastored churches in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama & Arkansas. I served for some four years as Vice President of The Spoken Word of God ministry, Orlando, FL. This ministry was active in church planting in India and broadcasting the Scriptures via Trans World Radio and other radio outlets. My associate in this ministry later invited me to join him and his dad in starting a business working with churches providing multimedia equipment. I have done this work for the last 16 years. This blog, hopefully, will scratch an itch I have for communicating the Word of God to a broader audience via the Internet. I would be honored to hear from you via email.
