Isaiah 9 A Son is Given
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, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting
Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall
be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with
judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Isaiah 9 (vs. 5f)
God created Fruit on the Third Day.
The birth of Jesus Christ proclaimed in Isaiah 9 integrates with the traditional rabinnical understanding
of Tet as representing the "good" (Tov - Tet KeyWord) - hidden in the mother's womb for nine months
(the numerical value and ordinal position of Tet).
The Number 9 is universally associated with birth in the sense of the Fruit of the Womb (as opposed to
Birth in the sense of passing through the Door, cf. Genesis 4). This integrates with strong theme
associating Fruit and the Number 9, as in the Nine aspects of the
Fruit of the Spirit. This all relates to
the Number 9 as an intensification
of the Number 3 because 9 = 3 x 3 and on the Third Day God created Fruit.
The establishment of David's Throne is deeply integrated with I Sameul (when God first established His Kingdom)
and Psalm 9.
