关于我

主啊,我有一个祈祷,让十架旗帜在这里飘。 引我奔走前面的路程,让我的生命完全倾倒。掌管我生命深处的钥匙,接受我隐秘深处的爱情。 在我未收回我的奉献时,捆绑我在你的祭坛,以免我凭己意在世界流连忘返。你是我坚固营垒的破碎者,又是我属天灵宫的重建者。 # 我的祈祷只有一句话,主啊重建城墙永不倒,我的祈祷只有一句话,主啊重建城墙永不倒。

Immanuel

以马内利

 

But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.  She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

 

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”—which means, “God with us.” 

正思念这事的时候,有主的使者向他梦中显现,说:大卫的子孙约瑟,不要怕!只管娶过你的妻子马利亚来,因他所怀的孕是从圣灵来的。他将要生一个儿子,你要给他起名叫耶稣,因他要将自己的百姓从罪恶里救出来。这一切的事成就是要应验主藉先知所说的话,说:必有童女怀孕生子;人要称他的名为以马内利。(以马内利翻出来就是神与我们同在。)

 

Matthew 1:20-23

马太1:20-23

 

For 400 years between the Old and New Testament periods Israel had no spoken word from God through the prophets.  There was also a silence of direct word from God until archangel Gabriel announced to Zechariah that his wife Elizabeth would bear a son who should be named John, and later Gabriel appeared to the young virgin Mary to convey God's plan for her to conceive and give birth to Jesus Christ (Lk 1:1-38).

新旧约时期之间的400年以色列没有从神通过先知来的话语。同时也有一个从直接从神来话语的沉默,直到天使长加百列向撒迦利亚宣布,他的妻子以利沙白将怀胎生子要命名为约翰,后来加百列向年轻处女马利亚出现来传达神要她怀孕和生育耶稣的计划(路1:1-38)。

 

The 400 years of silence must have been like rejection by God to the Israelites.  They thought God had abandoned them because of their sin.  So they worked harder to comply with the law of Moses hoping to regain the Lord's favor.  In doing so they adhered to the letters of the law and missed its spirit, emphasizing the outward behavior instead of the inward heart condition.  They overlooked God's mercy and grace in the law and only saw its requirement and punishment.  For 400 years they walked in the hopeless darkness of this mindset.  Then Jesus Christ, the light, came into the world of darkness as a human baby (Jn 1:1-5).  Even though mankind had rejected God or was indifferent to God, God had not rejected mankind.  He saw mankind's helplessness to come out of the darkness on their own, so He devised a plan for mankind's salvation.  Jesus' name is the Greek form of the Hebrew name, Joshua, which means God saves.

400年的沉默必定让以色列人感到好像已经被神拒绝。他们认为神因为他们的罪孽抛弃了他们。因此,他们更努力遵守摩西的律法希望能取回主的青睐。在这样做时,他们坚持遵守律法的字句,而错过了它的精神,强调外在行为,而不是内在的心灵状况。在律法上他们忽略神的怜悯和恩典,只看到它的要求和处罚。 400年来,他们走在这种心态无望的黑暗中。耶稣基督,他是光,成为一个人类婴儿,进入了黑暗的世界(约1:1-5)。尽管人类已经拒绝了神或淡泊神,神没有拒绝人类。他看到了人类的无助来走出自己的黑暗,于是他设计一个救赎人类的计划。耶稣的名字是希伯来文名字,约书亚,的希腊形式,意思是神拯救。

 

And it was not as though God came up with such a plan as the last resort.  God had it all planned out beginning in the Garden of Eden when He told the serpent which was the devil that the offspring of Eve would crush its head and it would strike his heel (Ge 3:15).  This prophesied the death of Christ and His resurrection and defeat of Satan.  There are many biblical prophesies of the Messiah fulfilled in the person of Jesus.  Matthew 1:23 points out one of them which is recorded in Isaiah 7:14.

那不是仿佛神想到这样一个计划作为最后的手段。神这一切计划开始在伊甸园中,当他告诉那蛇,就是魔鬼,说,夏娃的后裔会粉碎它的头,而它会伤他的脚跟(创3:15)。这预言基督的死和他的复活并撒旦的失败。有许多圣经中弥赛亚的预言已在耶稣个人身上实现。马太福音1:23指出其中之一,这是记录在以赛亚书7:14。

 

Jesus Christ is God who came into this world to be with His creation.  “Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” (Jn 1:3)  He is also called Immanuel, which means “God with us”.  “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” (Jn 1:14a)  God did not just break His silence, He also came to His people.  Our salvation does not depend on our effort to reach God.    It is the Almighty God who stoops to reach us and save us.  This is the spirit of Christmas!

耶稣基督是神来到这个世界,要与他的创造物同在。 “万物是藉着他造的;凡被造的,没有一样不是藉着他造的。”(约1:3) 他也被称为以马内利,意思是“神与我们同在”。 “道成了肉身,住在我们中间。”(约1:14)神不只是打破他的沉默,他还来到他的人那里。我们的得救不是靠我们的努力来达到神。而是万能的神降卑达到我们和拯救我们。这就是圣诞节的精神!

 

Are we still trying to earn our salvation through our work?  Are we reluctant to accept the grace of Jesus because it seems too easy?  Remember, Jesus' salvation may seem easy to us, but it had cost a great deal of suffering by Jesus in order to make it available to us.  We need to show our gratitude in accepting Jesus as our Savior and Lord.

我们仍在试图通过我们的努力来赚取我们的救赎吗?我们不愿意接受耶稣的恩典,因为它似乎太容易吗?记住,耶稣的救恩对我们看来似乎容易,但它的成本却是耶稣很大的苦难,来赐救赎给我们。我们需要在接受耶稣为我们的救主时,表示我们的感谢。
