No Room For The In

No Room For The In…

In several translations of the Scriptures, Isaiah 9:6-7 reads “For unto us a child is born. Unto us a son is given. And his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor IN the Almighty God…” This demotes the nature of the child born. Any godly person can be a counselor in the Almighty God. But only One can be a counselor who IS the Almighty God.

What does the original language say? It says, Va’yikrah Sh’mo – His name shall be called, Peleh Yoaytz – Wonderful Counselor, El Gibor – Almighty God…” There’s no IN in the Hebrew. So why did they try to add an “in?” Because the prophecy is just too awesome without it. God’s ways are always too awesome to contain. However, we don’t have the right to soften them, dilute them, or to add even one small word, as small as an in.

So take the word of God as is, at full strength, no matter what, because that’s where the power is. For when it comes to His birth, there wasn’t only no room at the inn –but there’s no room for the in.

I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll. Rev 22:18-19

Take a word from the Scripture. Take it as it is at full strength and actually live it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
