December 4, 2016 ”The Mighty God” is part 2 in the series on Advent: The Names of the Promised Child.
With Assyria breathing down his neck, King Ahaz felt trapped by the threat of Assyria’s might. Yet he turns to the thing from which he needs deliverance – Assyria – for deliverance rather than the promised coming of the Mighty God. Yet, so often, we do the same. We look to more of what’s killing us as the thing that will save us rather than looking to God’s power to set us free.
