Мысли вслух на Isa 26:1-6

In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.
Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.
The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.

Господь даёт спасение Своё вместо стены и вала. Стена и вал — это защита. Обычная такая физическая защита, то, что не позволит врагам проникнуть в нашу жизнь. Но стена и вал - это защита рукотворная. Создаём ли мы эту защиту сами или нам дают её окружающие, она остаётся человеческой. Наверное, хорошо и важно, когда такая защита в жизни есть, когда человек знает, что есть на кого и на что опереться. Но ещё важнее защита от Господа. А Его защита — это спасение. Спасение — это не просто ситуация, когда не придут враги и не обидят. Спасение — это ситуация, когда придёт Сам Господь. И тогда уже не так страшно, даже если враги и появятся в поле зрения, в опасной близости. Стены не нужны, потому что Он не просто лучшая, Он — единственная подлинная защита.

Время Адвента  — это время очень хорошего подбора чтений. Они коротки и предельно конкретны. Это время возврата к тому, как учатся дети самому главному. Исаия и Матфей дают нам две возможности понять то, что понимать не приятно. Они объясняют простыми словами. Объясняют как детям, использут разные аргументы, пытаясь добиться от нас разумных действий. Нагорная проповедь со все ее силой прямоты не зря кончается тремя стихами про дом на камне и на песке. Как маленьких детей, Господь нас учит своей правде, которая состоит в том, что мы можем все, даже дом на песке построить. Дом на песке, это дом на том, что временно. Камень — то, что вечно. Из вечного у нас в жизни есть только Господь.

Описывая народ Божий, которому Бог открывает ворота обновлённого Иерусалима, пророк говорит о нём, как о людях «праведных» и «хранящих верность» (в Синодальном переводе их называют «хранящими истину»), о людях с «твёрдой волей» или «твёрдым намерением»...  Читать далее

Описывая народ Божий, которому Бог открывает ворота обновлённого Иерусалима, пророк говорит о нём, как о людях «праведных» и «хранящих верность» (в Синодальном переводе их называют «хранящими истину»), о людях с «твёрдой волей» или «твёрдым намерением» (или «твёрдым духом» Синодального перевода). Что же стоит за этими пророческими определениями? Праведность никто из библейских авторов никогда не считал свойственной человеку. Праведен один лишь Бог. Для человека же праведность — не свойство и не качество, а состояние. Человек может быть праведным до тех пор, пока в нём отражается праведность Божья.

Возможно это в том случае, если человек хранит безусловную верность Богу, поэтому праведных пророк и называет «хранящими верность». Что же помогает человеку хранить верность Богу? Исайя отвечает и на этот вопрос: твёрдость намерения. Или твёрдость воли, что в данном случае одно и то же. Речь идёт не о силе воли в том смысле, в каком привыкли понимать это выражение мы. Мы под силой воли понимаем обычно некое конкретное усилие, необходимое в конкретной же ситуации.

А пророк говорит о силе воли, которая присуща человеку как неотъемлемое свойство его духовного «я». Разница здесь та же, что между, к примеру, мышечным усилием, приложенным в конкретной ситуации, и мышечным тонусом, который присущ физически здоровому человеку в принципе, независимо от прилагаемого усилия. Как без физического тонуса невозможна нормальная физическая жизнь человека, так без волевого тонуса невозможна для него нормальная духовная жизнь.

Духовная жизнь — в первую очередь отношения, связывающие человека с Богом и с другими людьми, которые невозможны без волевого тонуса. Без волевого тонуса отношения эти никак не могут быть устойчивыми и постоянными. О хранении верности (всё равно, Богу ли, или человеку) в таком случае придётся забыть: безвольному человеку хранить её будет просто нечем. Верность ведь предполагает не просто эмоции или теоретизирование, обычно не требующие особых волевых усилий.

Верность Богу, например, требует соблюдения данных Богом заповедей, хотя бы потому, что ещё на Синае, во время заключения союза-завета с Богом, их соблюдение было предписано как непременное условие заключаемого союза. Нет соблюдения заповедей — нет и завета, нет завета — нет и отношений с Богом. Верность Ему в таком случае оказывается чисто теоретической. Но жизнь с Богом, жизнь в Царстве — не теория, а практика. И она невозможна без твёрдого намерения хранить верность Богу и оберегать отношения, соединяющие с Ним верных, ищущих Царства.

На Isa 25:1-27:13
O LORD, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
For thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.
Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee.
For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.
And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.
And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.
He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.
And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
10 For in this mountain shall the hand of the LORD rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.
11 And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands to swim: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.
12 And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.
In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.
Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.
The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
The way of the just is uprightness: thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just.
Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O LORD, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.
With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
10 Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.
11 LORD, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.
12 LORD, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.
13 O LORD our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.
14 They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.
15 Thou hast increased the nation, O LORD, thou hast increased the nation: thou art glorified: thou hadst removed it far unto all the ends of the earth.
16 LORD, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured out a prayer when thy chastening was upon them.
17 Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O LORD.
18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.
19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.
In that day sing ye unto her, A vineyard of red wine.
I the LORD do keep it; I will water it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day.
Fury is not in me: who would set the briers and thorns against me in battle? I would go through them, I would burn them together.
Or let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me; and he shall make peace with me.
He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit.
Hath he smitten him, as he smote those that smote him? or is he slain according to the slaughter of them that are slain by him?
In measure, when it shooteth forth, thou wilt debate with it: he stayeth his rough wind in the day of the east wind.
By this therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be purged; and this is all the fruit to take away his sin; when he maketh all the stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten in sunder, the groves and images shall not stand up.
10 Yet the defenced city shall be desolate, and the habitation forsaken, and left like a wilderness: there shall the calf feed, and there shall he lie down, and consume the branches thereof.
11 When the boughs thereof are withered, they shall be broken off: the women come, and set them on fire: for it is a people of no understanding: therefore he that made them will not have mercy on them, and he that formed them will shew them no favour.
12 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall beat off from the channel of the river unto the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel.
13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem.

Апокалипсис Исаии — не рассказ о грядущих бедствиях, а провидение торжества Божьего Царства. Отметим для себя некоторые детали, о которых говорит пророк. Победа над врагами Израиля, собирание Израиля из рассеяния, трапеза Господня для всех народов на Сионской горе, открытость путей личной праведности, победа над смертью и воскресение мертвых, поражение змея, радость и веселие в Божьем спасении. Для чего это написано? Может быть, мы призваны соучаствовать в этой победе — своим доверием к пророчеству и согласием с замыслом Божьим.

Пророк прозревает те отдалённые времена, когда Господь воцарится не только в Израиле, но и среди всех народов, узнавших и принявших Его. Восторжествует справедливость, будут низвержены пытавшиеся величаться над народами, и даже крепостные стены будут разрушены, ведь в них больше уже не будет необходимости. На преображённой земле будет обитать праведный народ, очистившийся пред Господом.

Но даже этого мало, и пророк раскрывает перед нами откровение о предстоящей победе над смертью и о воскрешении умерших. Здесь один из важнейших моментов пророческого прозрения Исаии, здесь Господь раскрывает то, что ещё не было в полноте возвещено, однако теперь станет одним из центральных упований верных. Значит, наступит день, когда все увидят, что многие из испытанных человечеством страданий не были бессмысленными, они, как муки роженицы, завершатся новой, невообразимой для нас нынешних жизнью.

Открывая Исаии неизбежность Своей победы над Левиафаном, символизирующим противящиеся Ему силы зла, Господь раскрывает важное понятие о Себе. Гнева нет во Мне, говорит Он, и это значит, что хотя мы сотворены по Его образу и подобию, но Он нам не подобен, как не станет сложное уподобляться простому. Мы заблуждаемся, если пытаемся истолковать Его действия по образцу человеческих страстей и суждений. Не гневом Он движим, когда сокрушает нечестие. Но то, что противится Ему, будет искоренено.
