The Old Testament looked expectantly for The Advent of God's forever king, the anointed one who would bring peace to his people. In anticipation, they declared, "For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." When the long-awaited Messiah finally came, angels announced his birth by declaring, "I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."
