Who is the Mighty God of Isaiah 9:6?

While we're counting down the days until Christmas let's reflect on the One Whom it's all about with Isaiah 9:6.

This verse is a wealth of splendor about the child who is born and given who will bear the kingdom on his shoulder forever. Let's see what the phrase "mighty God" (el-gibbor) tells us about this promised ruler.

We will see how the Jehovah's Witnesses and how a Muslim try to explain away who the Messiah of Isaiah 9:6 is. Isaiah 10:21 gives us a clue to His identity!
