-Roy Lessin, Jesus Name Above All Names
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...The mighty God. -Isaiah 9:6 KJV
Jesus bears a name that only God can claim. Humans and angels can have might, but only One is the Almighty God. No person, angel, or any created being can ever receive that name. They have limits while He is without limitation; they can only do so much while He can do all things.
Mighty God means that Jesus doesn't merely sit in the number one place of power, but He sist in the only place of ultimate power. Jesus is the Strong One. Jesus is the Conqueror who cannot be conquered. He is the Champion without a rival. He is not called "very mighty," "greatly mighty," or "mostly mighty." He is called Almighty.
Isn't it wonderful to know that you belong to a God who can't be pushed over, broken down, or beaten up? No one can stare down the Almighty or bully Him. The Almighty can't be debated, intimidated, or frustrated. The Almighty fears no one, is not threatened by anyone's plan, and is never forced to cancel any of His plans.
Jesus is mighty enough to keep anything or anyone from getting in the way of His will for you. No one has the power to stop His plan for your life. The world can't, people can't, circumstances can't, and the Devil can't. When He says yes to you, no one else can say no. No one can overrule Him, because He has the final say.
