Section One V1- 8 God Will Prepare

People of the world seek to develop and strengthen their talents, skills, and knowledge, so they can do great things and prove themselves. But when we see the life of Jesus, He had been preparing Himself for 30 years, but He only served 3 years.  He is humble and gentle, He never tries to prove Himself, instead, He was willing to wait upon God’s timing and do only what God want Him to do. We are the ones being called by God, every day we face this world, which is going to an end, what is our attitude? Do we try to prove ourselves and do things according to our own desires? When we face challenges, do we feel like giving up or starting again?

V1-2 ‘Behold, a king will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule with justice. A man will be as a hiding place from the wind, and a cover from the tempest, as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.’ We are the princes and princesses of the Kingdom of God, we have been given so many resources and opportunities, but are we using them wisely? Where do we put out hope? In the richness of the world or in God? When the world is fading away, there will be a king, who can protect us and watch over us. But are we willing to follow and trust in Him?

V3-4 ‘The eyes of those who see will not be dim, and the ears of those who hear will listen. Also, the heart of the rash will understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers will be ready to speak plainly.’ We can make decisions in a rush, to respond quickly without praying and seeking counsel from God. God is reminding the people of Judah, to be careful to speak, and to not act in a rush. Moses was in rage and killed an Egyptian by accident, but despite of his action, God still used him because he was willing to humble himself and submit to God. We must know that God is watching over us and He is guiding us. Do not be the foolish people but see God’s works in our lives and surrounding us.

V5-6 ‘The foolish person will no longer be called generous, nor the miser said to be bountiful; for the foolish person will speak foolishness, and his heart will work iniquity: to practice ungodliness, to utter error against the Lord, to keep the hungry unsatisfied, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.’ God is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, He is the God of generations. He will never put His children to shame, He has so much in-stored for us, therefore do not focus on the treasures of the world, but to know God is our Abba Father, who we can rely on and trust in. Do not let the foolishness and ungodliness of the worldly values stop us seeing God’s treasures for us and our children.

Section Two V9-14 Men’s Pridefulness

V9-10 ‘Rise up, you women who are at ease, hear my voice; you complacent daughters, give ear to my speech. In a year and some days you will be troubled, you complacent women; for the vintage will fail, the gathering will not come.’ Love and mercy come from God, who is also righteous. When we show people love and mercy, we also need to show God’s righteousness and judgement. When it’s time to discipline and to teach, we must not hesitate to do so. Do not allow ourselves to indulge in a comfort and luxurious life. But be the fruitful vine for the Kingdom of God.

V11 ‘Tremble, you women who are at ease; be troubled, you complacent ones; strip yourselves, make yourselves bare, and gird sackcloth on your waists.’ Do not wait until the troubles come, but to be alert from now on, to seek God’s Will in our lives every day. This message is not only for the women, but also for our church, the bride of Jesus. God has created us with purposes, we must see this purpose in our lives, do not live according to our own will, but live in the principals of the Kingdom of God.

Section Three V15-20 The Promise will Come

V15 ‘Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and the fruitful field is counted as a forest.’ The Spirit is the Holy Spirit, God has already prepared King Josiah to save the people of Judah, but they did not believe God’s salvation will come. They only sought their own gains and selfish desires, continue to sin against God and continue to carry out their evil ways. God’s promise will still come no matter what, but are the people ready to receive?

V16 ‘Then justice will dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.’ Jesus already taught us, the judgement is yet to come, we must repent and return. The righteousness belongs to God, when we are willing to turn back from the proud to the humble, God will call us His beloved and call us back to His stronghold.

V18-19 ‘My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places, though hail comes down on the forest, and the city is brought low in humiliation.’ Stop relying on ourselves because it will only lead to destruction. If we rely on the forest, then the forest will be brought down.

V20 ‘Blessed are you who sow beside all waters, who send out freely the feet of the ox and the donkey.’ On the other hand, if we are willing to live in the flow of God, to be planted by the stream of water, to bear fruits in seasons, and God’s blessings will come to us naturally. Take down our pride, follow the Holy Spirit, and see the promises revealed. God is love, God is willing to bless, God has prepared, and we only need to follow.

一、v.1-8 神的预备

V1 当时南国犹大人的盼望是约西亚王,如今我们基督徒的盼望是地上的掌权者,还是主耶稣基督和神给我们的话语?在末世中,神有预备,“必有一王凭公义行政,必有首领借公平掌权”。

V2 我们是否处在一个干旱之地,是否觉得前方没有盼望?神的百姓累了,在长时间的等待中,他们失去信心盼望和喜乐。先知以赛亚就在这时说,“必有一王”带领我们,给我们盼望。

V3-4 神提醒犹大国的人,末世到了。 “冒失人”做事冲动,不愿意花时间祷告、没有神话语的启示。出埃及记4:10-12记录摩西的冲动冒失,他怀着一颗拯救同胞的心,结果成了逃跑的杀人犯,最后在神呼召的时候都成了说话“结巴”的人。 神可以改变人,只要他愿意降服。所以,在末后,“冒失人的心必明白知识,结巴人的舌必说话通快”。你愿意离开分辨善恶树,被神改变,进入生命树的气息吗?

V5-6 “愚顽人”就是无知的人,我们喜欢听世上那些有名望的人说的话,但愚昧人到那时必不再讲高举自己的话了;“吝啬”的人只将钱用在自己的生活享乐上,可是神给我们的祝福不是用在自己身上,而是用在神的国度里。神是亚伯拉罕、以撒、雅各的神,这些人靠的不是父辈留下来的财产,而是谦卑倚靠耶和华。神是祝福一代又一代的神,我们要教导我们的儿女倚靠他。

V6 “错谬的话”都是攻击神的错误的话,最后“使饥饿的人无食可吃,使口渴的人无水可喝”。我们带领的人若出现问题,要首先思想我们自己是走在神的法则里,还是自己的情欲里?我们看到所牧养的人走错了路,却不敢跟他们说,因为我们害怕得罪他们。神是爱,也是公义的,我们要忠于神所给我们的教导的的身份。

二、v.9-14 人的骄傲

V9 神创造我们女孩子不是在家里无忧无虑享福,我们要去听神的话语。

V10 神使用环境、用我们身边发生的事情来改变我们。神要看到多结果子的葡萄树,但我们是否成为帮助者,还是享受自己的生活?

V11-13 你要随从自己的情欲吗?最后你反而经历羞愧、必受骚扰、捶胸哀哭。我们想要住好的房子,但最后只有荆棘蒺藜长在其中。当时的妇女本该教养子女、帮助丈夫,但她们放弃这个责任、只想享受、不愿吃苦。今天,教会作为基督的新妇,我们是否也是如此?我们骄傲,只想体贴自己的肉体,把自己的“苦”放大,将神的能力变小。经历苦的时候我们若只会找人的帮助,看不见神。

三、v.15-20 应许的降临

V15 神已经预备了约西亚王拯救,但人因着骄傲沉浸在安逸中,以为自己是可以的,最后只会面对羞愧。唯有从骄傲中回转过来,才看到神的应许降临。“圣灵”就是神的灵(创1:2)- 当我们的骄傲顽固全都被打下的时候,神的灵就运行在上面。当我们愿意跟从圣灵时,“旷野就变为肥田,肥田看如树林”。

V16 当我们愿意顺服神时,“公平要居在旷野,公义要居在肥田”。”公平”代表审判 – 公义在“旷野”,这就是耶稣所说的,审判还未到,我们要悔改。“公义”代表神 – 当我们愿意回转向神时,神就向我们施慈爱,我们就与他同在。

V17-18 我们骄傲、不愿放下情欲,就无法有平安。唯有活在生命树下,才有“平安的居所,安稳的住处,平静的安歇所”。

V19 我们靠的是“树林”,因为有树就能造坚固城墙,但神要将这些人倚靠的东西打倒、摧毁。

V20 我们是否愿意如千年巨木,栽种在神的溪水旁,按时候结果子、叶子也不枯干?
