1.     全然                              的以賽亞

      Isaiah who completely                                 .

v  由先知的三個『我說』看他對主顯現時的反應(6:5-13):

    Isaiah’s reactions to God’s revelation - his three “I said”

1)面對 神的              深覺不配,甘被潔淨(6:5-7

1) Facing God’s                             - feeling unworthy, willing to be cleansed (6:5-7)

那時我說:「禍哉!我滅亡了!因為我是嘴唇不潔的人,又住在嘴唇不潔的民中,又因我眼見大君王萬軍之耶和華。」有一撒拉弗飛到我跟前,手裏拿著紅炭,是用火剪從壇上取下來的,將炭沾我的口,說:「看哪,這炭沾了你的嘴,你的罪孽便除掉,你的罪惡就赦免了。」(6:5-7

 So I said: “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The Lord of hosts. ” Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged.”  (Isaiah 6:5-7)

 

2)面對 神的             全然獻上,任主使用(6:8

2)  Facing God’s                       -  offered completely,  at God’s command ( 6:8)

我又聽見主的聲音說:「我可以差遣誰呢?誰肯為我們去呢?」我說:「我在這裏,請差遣我!」(6:8

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send,

And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”  (6:8)

 3)面對 神的            不畏艱難,至死忠心(6:9-13

3) Facing God’s                                      -  undaunted, faithful until death (6:9-13)

他說:「你去告訴這百姓說:你們聽是要聽見,卻不明白;看是要看見,卻不曉得。要使這百姓心蒙脂油,耳朵發沉,眼睛昏迷;恐怕眼睛看見,耳朵聽見,心裏明白,回轉過來,便得醫治。」我就說:「主啊,這到幾時為止呢?」他說:直到城邑荒涼,無人居住,房屋空閒無人,地土極其荒涼。並且耶和華將人遷到遠方,在這境內撇下的地土很多。境內剩下的人若還有十分之一,也必被吞滅,像栗樹、橡樹雖被砍伐,樹不子卻仍存留。這聖潔的種類在國中也是如此。(6:9-13

And He said, “Go, and tell this people: ‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand; Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’ “Make the heart of this people dull, And their ears heavy, And shut their eyes; Lest they see with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, And return and be healed.” Then I said, “Lord, how long?” And He answered: “Until the cities are laid waste and without inhabitant, The houses are without a man, The land is utterly desolate,  The Lord has removed men far away, And the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.  But yet a tenth will be in it, And will return and be for consuming, As a terebinth tree or as an oak, Whose stump remains when it is cut down. So the holy seed shall be its stump.”

 

2.     成為神家                   的以賽亞

     Isaiah who became                                      in God’s house

v  他對神家最重要的兩大職事:

    Isaiah’s two most important ministries in God’s house:

1)  他強而有力的                         .

1)  His powerful                                  .

-就連新約也至少20次引用他的話,例如:「這是要應驗先知以賽亞的話,說

 - Even the New Testament quotes Isaiah at least 20 times, for example “that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying...”

2)  他扭轉乾坤的                         .

2)  His                              that turned situations around

-例如:希西家王在國家危難時立即差眾首領和眾長老去請以賽亞禱告

- For example, King Hazekiah sent officers and elders to Isaiah for his prayer at the moment of national crisis

   求你為餘剩的民揚聲禱告」(37:4b)

“… Therefore lift up your prayer for the remnant that is left.” ( Isaiah 37:4b)

3.                           的以賽亞
