The real Prince of Peace

The Prince of Peace?

Isaiah 9:5
 For a child has been born to us, a son given to us, and the authority is upon his shoulder, and the wondrous adviser, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, called his name, "the prince of peace."
 This is saying a son is (already given) not one who will come 700 yrs from now but who is alive at that time.   Also the government was never upon Jesus shoulders.  The KJV changed the words around.  The last line is calling call  the wondrous adviser, the mighty G-d, the everlasting Father and that G-d called the child Prince of Peace because of the Isaiah 9:6 "That the government may be increased, and of peace there be no end, upon the throne of David..."
 Who is the prince?
King Hezekiah
If one reads Isaiah in context, that really is not difficult to see at all.
while a literal rendition into English may be hard to pinpoint, the contextual use and the Hebrew grammar fit that the phrase refers to praise for a king's title, a play on the king's name and his role to honor God.
Hezekiah's name itself means and refers to the might of or the mighty God.

The KJV renders this to be in the future tense, so as to make it seem like a future prophecy about Jesus
Hezekiah, was a messiah living at the time Isaiah spoke ( remember, in the Tanakh ALL anointed and righteous kings are called moshiach(messiah) anointed..he was the son of King Ahaz led the quick destruction of Assyria at a time when his own kingdom appeared to be lost. Through him the dynasty of David the messiah,was preserved, and whose descendant is prophesied to rule Israel in the "messianic age".

We picked a pattern to try using 4ft long by 1.5 inch wide wood. It is in the molding area at Home Depot. We cut the wood into 7, 10, and 13 inch pieces.
Here is the design we wanted. So we could make adjustment we stared in the center of the wall and us one headless nail to nail in each piece of wood. It was easy to pull off and try again if we were off measuring wise.

In this picture you can see how it is a square box of 10wide 13 tall with 7 inch pieces on all sides.
Then we added just a flat 3.5 wide 4 ft long pieces of wood also in the molding department. After everything is in place then take a nail gun and nail all the wood to the wall.
Then really months later we got around to painting it. One coat of primer and 3 coats of white paint. Then we realized that w…
