Introduction to Isaiah 1-12: 以赛亚书要点:

From Perdition to Praise 从灾祸到赞美

You are living in sin! You are rebelling against God, your creator! Turn

away from these idols you are worshipping! Turn away from the

impending woe and judgment. Turn back to God, Yahweh is salvation!

Isaiah, whose name means “Yahweh is salvation,”was a prophet

who prophesied during the reigns ofUzziah(or Azariah), Jotham,

Ahaz, andHezekiah, the kings ofJudah. And we see from the book of

2 Kings that of the four kings mentioned,three(Uzziah, Jotham and

Hezekiah) were good kings who did what was pleasing to God. But

even during the reign of Uzziah or his son Jotham, we see that “The

high places, however, were not removed; the people continued to

offer sacrifices and burn incense there” (2 Kings 15:4; 35).King Ahaz

was even worse. He followed the people in worshipping other gods

at the high places and even sacrificed his son in the fire!

And this was the cry of Isaiahin chapters 1 to 12. Judah, repent!

Perdition is coming! Look at Israel (the Northern kingdom). They are

bowing to the same idols! Assyria is going to conquer them and carry

them off into exile. But Judah, escape from the perdition that is to

come! Repent and turn from your sins. And praise God, for the LORD

himself has become your salvation!

As we approach Lent, as we reflect on Isaiah’s cry, call and caution in

Isaiah 1-12, may the Holy Spirit illumine areas in our life we are to

repent of and return to God, forat Easter,the LORD himself has

become our salvation!


你们活在罪孽之中!你们悖逆了上帝,这位创造全地的主!转离这些你们所敬拜的偶像吧!转离那迫在眉睫的灾祸吧!审判将要来临!转回到上帝那里吧!雅魏是拯救!

以赛亚的名字的意思“雅魏是拯救”。他是乌西亚、约坦、亚哈斯、西希家作犹大王时的先知。从《历王记下》我们知道乌西亚(即亚撒利亚)、约坦、西希家这三位是好王,他们行上帝眼里看为正的事。但即使是在乌西亚和他的儿子约坦作王的时期,从《历王记下》15:4,35 我们知道“只是邱坛没有废去,百姓仍在那里献祭烧香。” 亚哈斯王时期更加严重,他效法百姓去邱坛献祭,使他的儿子经火。

这Reflections是先知以赛亚and在1-Prayer12章所大反声思呼祷吁告的。犹大啊,悔改吧!灾祸即将来临,看看北国以色列的教训吧!他们

正敬拜同样的偶像。亚述大军正兵临其城下,他们将要被掳。但是犹大啊!逃离这即将来临的灾祸吧!悔改且转离你们的恶行吧!赞美上帝吧!主耶和华将亲自成为你们的拯救!

今年的大斋节要来了,当我们反思先知以赛亚在1-12章的斥责、呼吁和警告,愿圣灵光照我们生活中的各个层面,悔改和回转,因为在复活节,主耶和华将亲自成为我们的拯救。
