經文:以賽亞書四十二至四十四章
鑰節:「我是耶和華,這是我的名,我必不將我的榮耀歸給假神……」(42:8)
提要

        四十二章開始預言彌賽亞,這位上帝的僕人,是一個人,也是一位聖先知,祂救贖祂的百姓,是他們的新希望(42~45章);猶太人的祖先,對於彌賽亞是一個人,而不是整個國家的預言感到困惑,並且他們十分介意這點,但無論如何,當耶穌應驗了先知的預言後,釋清了他們所有的疑慮,但仍有一些心靈眼瞎的人,不肯承認彌賽亞是一個人。

        耶穌受洗的時候,聖靈降臨,上帝說耶穌是祂所喜悅的,上帝選擇耶穌降世為人這種方式,有特定的目的(太3:26~17;17:5;賽11:12),耶穌來到世間最終的目的是:「作外邦人的光」(42:6;路2:32),並且教導他們上帝的聖潔和真理,使他們藉耶穌成為公義;耶穌到世間來,藉著門徒和跟隨祂的人,完成了祂的任務,就是拯救以色列中迷失的羊群,祂來到地上不是以一個權能王的身份,卻取了謙卑、安靜、溫柔的樣式(42:2~3,6)。生命的創造主成就基督的救贖工作,使瞎眼的看見,給予人們身體及靈堛滲u自由(35:5;61:1;路4:18,21;來2:14~15)。在全地因接受救恩得救的人,要歌唱讚美上帝,讚美耶穌在地上工作的結果,因在地上沒有任何能力,能阻止福音的廣傳(42:10~13)。

        以賽亞再次說,過不久上帝要審判巴比倫人,要拯救猶太人(42:15;43:14~15),上帝懲罰靈堬晾M耳聾的猶太人,因他們犯罪和不順服上帝,他們拜偶像又虛偽的敬拜上帝,甚至祭司和文士都犯罪(42:14,17~25;43:22~28)。

        但上帝仍愛祂的子民眷顧他們,要拯救他們,完成祂的救贖;猶太人七十年的被擄,上帝一直壓抑自己(42:14),最後祂動工,召回被巴比倫擄去分散在各地的猶太人(43:5~6)。接著上帝第一次提到,祂要從埃及贖回祂的子民,在海中開路讓他們逃生,然後消滅他們的仇敵埃及人,祂又要做一件新事,在曠野中開路,給祂的子民水喝,使他們得力能回到自己的家園(43:16~21)。當猶太人看見上帝為他們做的一切事,他們為著以往他們拜偶像感到羞愧(42:17)。

        上帝宣告只有祂能預言,能使預言應驗,假神不會預言,更不能實現預言,他們從未做過什麼(42:8~9;43:9),只有上帝配得榮耀,祂必不將榮耀歸給假神;猶太人因悔改,上帝拯救他們,他們才明白,偶像不能幫助他們,唯有上帝是他們的救贖主,永活、全能拯救他們的上帝,猶太人成了上帝的見證人(43:10~12)。

        四十四章,上帝再次預言猶太人會被擄到拜偶像的地方,上帝告訴他們,偶像只是無用之物,人們可用一塊木頭的一部分雕刻偶像,用另一部分煮東西吃,再用一部分當柴燒以取暖,那麼,做出來的偶像有什麼用呢﹖上帝向祂的子民保證,他們仍是祂的選民,祂要祝福他們和他們世世代代的子孫,他們也要經歷上帝是他們靈堸妥鰹阞漪﹞禲]約4:13~14),上帝要將聖靈澆灌給祂的子民(44:3;徒2)。

禱告

        上帝啊!讓我們所有的服事不是出於自我,也不為自己的野心,只為今日在我們的生活中,使您得到完全的榮耀與讚美。奉主耶穌聖名,阿們!

Scriptures:Read Isaiah 42, 43&44
Key Verse:"I am the Lord, that is My name; and My glory I will not give to another..."(Isaiah 42:8)
Overview

        From the outset, chapter 42 is clearly Messianic. The "Servant" of the Lord is now identified as a person rather than the nation as a whole, giving a new and exciting element to Isaiah's Messianic-Servant prophecies (chs. 42-45). Ancient Jewish commentators found the passages in this subsection baffling, yet most of them regarded it as Messianic. However, when Jesus Christ came in fulfillment of these prophecies, He shed light on their meaning. The New Testament declares that He fulfilled it, (Matt. 12:17-21) and those who refuse to see it are spiritually blind.

        Chapter 42 begins by alluding to Jesus' baptism, when God's Spirit descended upon Him and the divine voice declared His "delight" with Jesus, God's "Elect", meaning one who is chosen for a specific purpose (Matt. 3:16-17; 17:5; Isa. 11:2). Isaiah continues to give the ultimate purpose of Jesus' coming: to be "a light to the Gentiles" (42:6; Luke 2:32) and to give them "justice", which implies imparting to them His standards of holiness and truth as taught in the Gospel. Jesus was to accomplish this through His disciples and followers, for He came firstly to the lost sheep of Israel to fulfill His covenant promises and, in contrast to the ways of a powerful king, He came teaching humbly, quietly, and gently (42:2-3, 6). The Creator and Sustainer of life would uphold and support Jesus in His ministry and work of redemption, wherein He will give sight to the blind and set the prisoner free, both physically and spiritually (35:5; 61:1; Lk. 4:18, 21; Heb. 2:14-15). Jesus' work will result in the creation of a "new song" and in praise to God from all people of the world who have received His salvation, and no power on earth will be able to stop the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (42:10-13).

        Isaiah once again refers to the more immediate future promise of God to bring judgment upon the nation of Babylon that had taken Judah captive (42:15; 43:14-15). God stressed that it was He who purposed this just punishment upon His spiritually blind and deaf people because of their sins and disobedience to Him; their horrible sins included that of idolatry and hypocritical worship to God, which was even perpetrated by the priests and teachers of the law (42:14, 17-25; 43:22-28)

        In chapter 43, the Lord poetically describes His love and providential care of His people whom He promised to redeem. The fact that God would accomplish their deliverance is so certain that it is spoken of as having already happened. After seventy years of captivity wherein God restrained Himself (42:14), He finally intervened to call His people from wherever the Babylonians had scattered them (43:5-6). He makes mention of the first time He redeemed His people in Egypt, when He made a path for them through the sea, and then extinguished the enemy. But now He says He will do a new thing by making a road in the wilderness and providing them with water so that His people might return to their homeland (43:16-21). When they see that God did indeed intervene on their behalf, they will be ashamed for having ever worshipped idols (42:17).

        The Lord demanded that He alone receive the glory for bringing prophecies to fulfillment and for declaring the prophecies yet to be fulfilled. He will make certain that the glory due Him is not given to an idol, for none of the idolatrous gods have ever done, nor are even able to do, anything whatsoever (42:8-9; 43:9). It was not until the people of Judah had repented and forsaken idol worship that God brought them out, so none could say that another god had helped them. God is their only Lord and Saviour, the eternally-existent, all-powerful One who redeemed them. The Lord called upon His people to be witnesses to this fact (43:10-12), and He challenged the heathen nations by asserting that He was the only true God (43:9).

        Chapter 44 is devoted to making this fact clear in the minds of the people of Judah. Knowing they would go into captivity in idolatrous lands, the Lord wanted to show them the folly and lack of understanding in worshipping a useless idol, which is made of the same wood with which they cook or keep warm, God wanted to reassure His people that He had indeed chosen them and promised them a blessed future with descendants that would experience the "Water" from God for their thirsty souls (John 4:13-14) and the outpouring of His Holy Spirit (44:3; Acts 2; Day of Pentecost).

Prayer

        Lord God, grant that all our service to You will not be from any self-serving, personal ambition but only for Your glory. Be magnified in our lives today, dear Jesus.
