주는 나의 목자이시니.... Instead of fretting over the tests and struggles we inevitably face in this life, we might look for reasons to be grateful, for how else can we come to know that the Lord is with us apart from his ongoing deliverance? We ask the Lord for our daily bread (לֶחֶם חֻקֵּנוּ), but I wonder if we are not starving ourselves with fear of the future... Daily bread cannot be stored or hoarded lest it becom..
목마른자들은 다 오라 The Aramaic word "ushpizin" (אוּשְׁפִּיזִין) refers to the seven "guests" whom we remember and honor during the week-long festival of Sukkot, namely: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, and King David, respectively. According to Jewish tradition, on each night a different guest (i.e., ushpiz: אוּשְׁפִּיז) enters the sukkah, and we are to symbolically welcome them by offering them a plac..
헛되고 헛도니 모든것이 헛되나이다 The scroll of Ecclesiastes (מגילת קהלת) is always read during the festive holiday of Sukkot, though you might be surprised to learn that many of the early sages did not want it included as part of the Jewish Scriptures. After all, the philosophy of Kohelet - that we are incapable of fully understanding the purposes of the world, and therefore much of what we think is important is really havel ha..
주여, 내 영혼이 주를 우러러 보나이다 It is written in our Scriptures (2 Tim. 1:7) that "God has not given us the spirit of fear (πνεῦμα δειλίας), but of power, and love, and a sound mind" (note that the term "sound mind" comes from the word saos (σάος) "safe," or under the protective restraining influence of the Spirit of God). Understand the connection between fear and confusion, then, and note further the connection between havin..
너는 하나님 앞에서 완전 할지니라 In the Torah we read, "Keep yourselves away from a false matter" (Exod. 23:7). In this connection note that the Hebrew word for falsehood (or lie) is sheker (שֶׁקֶר), which can be rearranged to spell kesher (קֶשֶׁר), meaning a band, gang, or group of people... The power of the lie is often found in the "group" rather than in the individual, and if enough people in a group repeat something untrue..
하나님과 함께하는 나그네와 거류민들 Among other things, the holiday of Sukkot reminds us that God's people are "strangers" in this world; they are literally estranged and live as "resident aliens" -- here, yet not here.... We wander; we are lonely; we yearn for our heavenly home. Life in this world is “olam ha’sheker,” the false world -- full of deception, troubles, and struggle. Thus Abraham said to the sons of Chet: "I am a 'str..
겸손한자에게 은혜를 베프시느니라 "Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able" (Luke 13:24). The narrow door is the way of humility, assuming a low position, crawling, if you will, and making yourself small... It is the way of the cross of Messiah, confessing the truth of our broken condition and trusting in God alone for healing and deliverance.. The narrow door is the..
초 하루에 나팔을 불찌어다. The “appointed times” of the Scriptures (i.e., mo’edim: מוֹעֲדִים) were given by God to help us turn away from the omnipresent urge within the human heart to embrace vanity: "Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father and guard (שָׁמַר) my Sabbaths (שַׁבְּתתַי)... Do not turn to worthlessness (i.e., אֱלִיל) or make for yourselves any molten gods" (Lev. 19:3-4). In other words, the B..
하나님의 둘러싸임 The name of the Lord is YHVH (יהוה), which comes from a root word meaning existence (i.e., hayah: היה, to be). It is this name that gives existence to creation, as it says, "in him all things hold together" (τὰ πάντα ἐν αὐτῷ συνέστηκεν; Col. 1:17) and by his power "all things are carried" (φέρων τε τὰ πάντα; Heb. 1:3). In God we “live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28) and "from him and t..
하나님이여 나를 살피사 내 마음을 아시며 We often have simplistic ideas about “temptation.” For instance, we may think that it refers to being enticed to selfishly indulge the lusts our lower nature... A more mature view of temptation, however, understands that it begins within our minds and is tolerated by means of our faulty thinking. The practice of managing and testing our thought life (i.e., our attitudes, the assumptions behind o..
주의 큰날이 가까이 왔으니 Life in this evil world can be suffocating at times. And while we may not be under the oppression of a cruel Pharaoh, we are affected by the "princes of this age" who spurn the message of the Messiah's redemption and love, and we are still subjected to bondage imposed by taskmasters who defy the LORD and who seek to enslave us by means of lies, propaganda, “mandates,” and threats of violence... ..
그가 사망을 영원히 멸하실것임이니라 Though no one knows the day or hour of the return of Yeshua our Messiah (Matt. 24:36; Acts 1:7), there are clues given in Scripture about the conditions of the world before His return, and Yeshua himself gave us parables admonishing us to actively be looking (see Matt. 24:2-14; 25:1-13). The Apostle Paul said that followers of the Lord can know the “season” of Messiah’s return, and warned that H..
지혜로운 마음을 얻다 Why does God want us to face the truth about death? Why does Moses ask God to teach us to "number of our days?" (Psalm 90:12). The reason is that by nature people deny the reality of death - they hide their eyes from it, ignore it, and pretend it's not there - so they can continue to live under the illusion that they are in control of their lives, that they are the center, that they are immortal..
내가 주의 법을 어찌 사랑하는지요 Each week in synagogues across the world a portion from the Torah (called a parashah) is studied, discussed, and chanted. Jewish tradition has divided the Torah into 54 of these portions - roughly one for each week of the year - so that in the course of a year the entire Torah has been recited during services. The final reading of this cycle occurs on the holiday of Simchat Torah ("Joy of the To..
주의 말씀으로 창조 The 18th century Torah sage Vilna Gaon taught that the Hebrew word “bereshit” (בְּרֵאשִׁית), which is the very first word of the Bible, may be thought of as an acronym for meaningful spiritual life. The first letter, Bet (בּ), stands for bittachon (בִּטָּחוֹן), a word that means complete trust in God’s love for your life; the next letter, Resh (ר), stands for ratzon (רָצוֹן), or the desire to li..
사람을 두려워하면 올무에 걸리느니라 For reasons not explained in Scripture, God chose to begin creating the world in chaos: תהוּ וָבהוּ וְחשֶׁךְ / tohu vavohu ve’choshekh: “confusion and emptiness and darkness” (Gen. 1:2). From chaos and darkness God would shine forth light - indeed, the divine light was the first of all God’s creations (a counterpart of the “Light of the World” Himself): יְהִי אוֹר וַיְהִי־אוֹר / yehi or, vayhi-o..
주의 인자하심이 생명보다 나으니라 We naturally seek life on our own terms, yet this mercifully leads to disappointment, sorrow, and loss. God calls us to change our direction and turn to him because he knows that what we really need is only found in relationship with him.... Since the blessing is found by connecting with him, he calls us away from the vanity of our idols to know him as our ultimate concern, our highest good, our..
하나님은 위대 하시다 하게 하소서 Our spiritual inheritance is bound up with the Torah: it is part of our story, our history, and our heritage as follows of Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah (see Deut. 33:4; Matt. 5:17-19; Gal. 3:7; Rom. 4:16; Luke 24:27). You are no longer an “outsider” to the covenants and blessings of Israel, friend (see Eph. 2:19; Gal. 3:26). Being a Jew (i.e., יְהוּדִי, from יְהוּדָה “one who praises”) is really n..
주는 나의 빛이요 구원이시라 We are in the midst of a great spiritual war -- the war for the truth. This has been the battle from the beginning. The very first words of evil (הַנָּחָשׁ) questioned and garbled God's truth: אַף כִּי־אָמַר אֱלֹהִים לֹא תֹאכְלוּ מִכֹּל עֵץ הַגָּן - "Did God really say you shall not eat from all the trees of the garden?" (Gen. 3:1). The test of the orchard was therefore the test of teshuvah - th..
죄의 근원과 죽음 The commandment prohibiting eating from the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil (עֵץ הַדַּעַת טוֹב וָרָע) contained all other Torah commandments by implication (Gen. 2:17). The commandments not to worship idols, not to curse God, not to steal, not to kill, not to commit adultery, not to covet, and to enforce justice all derive from this primary commandment given in the garden. After all, Adam los..
하나님의 신실한 사랑은 영원하시도다 The Torah begins with the letter Bet (בּ) rather than the letter Aleph (א) to denote God's humility. The letter Aleph is the first letter, the king of the alphabet, and the letter that begins "I AM" (i.e., אנכי) - the first word of the Ten Commandments. The letter Bet, on the other hand, is the second letter that means "house" or "home" (בּית). This suggests that the Torah begins with the focus ..
태초에 하나님이 천지를 창조 하시다 The idea that a personal God created the universe "out of nothing" (i.e., yesh me’ayin: יֵשׁ מֵאַיִן ) is a matter of special revelation that is not directly known through the operation of unaided natural reason. Of course human reason may (rightly) infer that since “every effect requires a cause,” and since the universe itself is an effect, there must be a cause sufficient in power and greatnes..
하나님의 모양과 형상을 따라 만드시다 “Then the LORD God formed the man from dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living soul” (Gen. 2:7). We tend to think of dust in self-effacing terms; for example, repenting in “dust and ashes” expresses unworthiness and sinfulness. Yet the dust God used to form Adam was not worthless, but instead represented very fine particles of creation, a..
나를 찬송 하기 위해 창조했다 God made you entirely unique, and no one else was created for the special role that you have in the overarching plan of Almighty God... Jewish tradition says that God created Adam alone as "olam malei" (עוֹלָם מָלֵא), “an entire world,” to teach that each individual is of great value and significance. "Thus anyone who sustains one individual has sustained the world; and anyone who destroys one i..
노아는 하나님과 함께 하다 Shalom friends! Last week’s Torah portion (Bereshit) showed how the mutiny of Adam and Eve caused humanity to plunge into idolatrous chaos. The subsequent generations lost sight of the LORD and became progressively steeped in moral anarchy and bloodlust, so that “every intention of the thoughts of man’s heart was only evil continually” (Gen. 6:5). After just nine generations, the LORD had grown ..
살인자 뱀에 대한 예언 Our restoration begins with God’s love and passion. God's first question to Adam after he broke covenant was: "Where (אַיֶּכָּה) are you?" - the voice of a loving Father in search of his son (Gen. 3:9). Of course God knew exactly how his son was attempting to hide, though He almost acted as if He was unwilling to believe that he would betray his love by disobeying His commandment. Therefore God’..
주의 빛 안에서 우리가 빛을 보리이다. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, and the earth was “tohu va'vohu” - without form and empty, and darkness was over the face of the deep...” (Gen. 1:1-2). The sages comment that knowing that God created the heavens and the earth makes us realize that by themselves earthly things are without purpose and substance, since life in the natural world is "havel havalim" (הֲבֵל הֲב..
3.1절과 기독교 신앙 본문 느1:1-7 김정일목사 설교자료 중에서 오늘은 우리 선열들이 일제의 억압과 속박에서 해방되고, 잃었던 나라 의 주권과 독립을 되찾기 위해서 혼연히 일어섰던 기미 3 · 1운동 73주년 을 기념하는 뜻깊은 주일입니다. 우리가 해마다 이 날을 맞지만 금년 3 - 1절은 더욱더 뜻깊은 것이라고 사려됩니다. 그 이유는 남북한이 UN에 동시 가입하여 회원국이 된 지 1년이 넘고 우리 나라도 이제 UN과 함께 세계평화에 기여하는 한 나라가 되었다는 데서 그렇습니다. 일제에 의해 합병된 지 9년째 되는 1919년 3월 1일, 우리 선열들은 민족대표 33인을 선두로 서울 파고다공원에서 시작하여 일제히 전국 거국적으로 민족의 자유와 겨레의 독립을 위해서 총귈기한 것입니다. 역사의 기록은 이때 참여한 총인구는 당시 ..
너는 주를 기다릴지니라 God gives us special graces, especially in light of the passing of days, with thwarted hope, aching bones, and inner keening for lasting deliverance from the insanity of this world. This gift of despondency helps us to awaken and to reach out to find the Real, the True, the Eternal. Learn to wait; ask God for the wisdom of patience. Between acceptance and anxiety, always choose acceptance. Find ..
주의 길에서 나를 살아나게 하소서! When Adam was put in the Garden of Eden, God told him that he was free to eat from any tree in the Garden except from "the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil" (עץ הדעת טוב ורע), which logically implies that evil existed before that time. After all, the knowledge of something assumes the existence of that thing, and if there was knowledge of evil, then evil would exist, at least potentially....
