John Whitcomb: December 24, 2018

Merry Christmas from Whitcomb Ministries and “Encounter God’s Truth”! On this weekend before Christmas, we consider part two of the message: “Our Wonderful Counselor.” Dr. John Whitcomb is taking us deep into the larger context surrounding one of the most powerful prophetic promises of Christmas—Isaiah 9:6-7. This is the final program in our Christmas series—and the conclusion of a longer series that we began this fall called “Isaiah: The LORD is Salvation.” Whitcomb Ministries wishes to express our sincere gratitude to Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut, for their fellowship in this ministry, in allowing us to bring this teaching to our listeners here on “Encounter God’s Truth.” Host Wayne Shepherd concludes this week’s program by wishing all of our listeners a wonderful Christmas Day as we celebrate the birth of “Our Wonderful Counselor.” Merry Christmas!
