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. — Isaiah 9:6
"Who is this child?" asked Elder John M. Madsen of the Seventy in April 1993 general conference. "Who is this son? And 'whose son is he'? (Matthew 22:42). Who is this 'mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace,' spoken of by Isaiah? . . .
"He is Jesus Christ, who, before condescending to come down from heaven to dwell among the children of men (see Mosiah 3:5), was none other than the Great Jehovah. . . .
"I know and bear witness that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, that He was and is the Great Jehovah, the Savior and Redeemer of the world. I know that He atoned for the sins of the world and that He was resurrected with a glorious body of flesh and bone. I bear witness that He lives and that He soon will come again to rule and reign as 'King of Kings, and Lord of Lords' " (Revelation 19:16).
