The Abraham entered into a covenant with God, but entered into a deeper friendship cherished by God Vidaoh mistress, in his interview with Israel says: "But you, O Israel, my servant, O Jacob, you have chosen the descendants of Abraham Khalili" (Isaiah 41: 8), the title used by Yehoshvat in Speaking with God when he asked him to help his people (2 or 20: 7), James the Apostle declared saying about Abraham: "called the friend of God" (James 2:23).
This unique friendship appear in many situations reveal the love of God and his dealings with his children. Father God appears to Abraham to Bmlakih hosted at noon in the plain of Mamre, Faadh God of Isaac, and enter him in an open dialogue on the one hand of Sodom and Gomorrah.
1. The plain of Mamre 1-2
2. Ibrahim generous 3-5
3. Preparing the feast 6-8
4. Enjoy Sarah Balthmr 9-15
5. Dialogue with God 16-32
1. The plain of Mamre:
"The Lord appeared to him in the plain of Mamre, as he sat in the tent door, free noon time, he lifted up his eyes and looked, and if three men stood to him, and when he looked he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed to the ground." [1-2].
Came this historic meeting is a meeting spiritually true enjoys all the same is the father of fathers Abraham, interference with God in friendship love honest, and sits at the door of her tent at the plain of Mamre, to receive inside Lord of heaven and angels, so the structure of God announces the kingdom of heaven is within.
To accept the Lord in us, to come up to the door of the tent and sit there at the plain of Mamre at noon Nstzl oak trees. What is out of the tent, but self-starting outside the lusts of the flesh, do not hold your breath evil desires within them to panic pleasures and interests, but also begins to live in the freedom of the human spiritual Gesdanie not, subject to the tent itself is not subject himself to the weight of the tent.
Not enough to go out to the tent door, but need to be sitting at the oak that is, when the cross late in the afternoon to reflect the high Lord surgery on the cross as the sixth hour, chanting what we say in the Divine Liturgy, "the official, O my soul wounds in front of you, and took refuge in when irritates the enemy you." In front of "corridor" means a "vision" or "insight", Vboukrojna the Holy Spirit from the weight of the desires of the tent to us, and we sat at the sacred oak, saying: "under his shadow with great delight that I sit and his fruit was sweet to my taste" (Songs 2: 3), enjoy Bmamra any the vision of God and enlightened internal insight.
Father comment Caesarius of Arles to meet God with Abraham at the plain of Mamre, saying: Atari any position can be set up where a feast to the Lord? I've lightened see Abraham and his insight (or conduit = vision and insight), his heart was pure sees God. It is in such a position in such a heart can be to the Lord to find a feast .
Some interpreters Jews believe that this meeting was after circumcision three days, and that the Lord came to heal Abraham from his wound; if this holds true circumcision, a baptism by Ntmmha on behalf of the Holy Trinity code but it is through our entry into the divine friendship, which craves God that Nstqublh in our tent sanctified by My Spirit Holy finds us and Imith delightful, and hear our voice: "darling to come to his committee and eat the precious fruit" (Songs 4:16). Enter into the joy of our hearts to say: "Committees have entered my sister of the bride, I picked Meri with Tibi, I ate Shuhdi with Hazel, drank wine with my milk; EAT Dear friends, drink and Askeroa Beloved" (Songs 5: 1). Thus our tent to turn to the Lord comfort center to find joy in human beings. St. Macarius the Great says: [Heart of Christ is the palace, which enters the King to sit back, and with it the lives of the saints and angels, there lives and consistent inside and assesses his kingdom . Tent turn to the Commission by the Lord rejoice groom, as St. Gregory of Nyssa says: This is the one who has the bride prepared their table. The committee table are planted, live trees, and the trees are we, and the fruit that we offer is our souls ... food prepared is our salvation, and the fruit is a free offering our will to God our souls like a fruit harvested from the branch .
If only we stand with Abraham at the door of the tent to tent to host the Lord being his palace and his committee, to offer him our own free (holy lives in it) food rejoice his heart!
The host of Abraham to the Lord and Mlakih attracted the attention of men of God Saints, the Apostle Paul said: "He said people do not know they are angels" (Heb. 13: 2). Parents spoke about the work of a flood "strangers" as a way to host a neighborhood of the Lord in His creation. St. Ambrose says: [perhaps the coming of Christ in the person of the stranger, as it comes in the impoverished people such as saying: "I was imprisoned Vzrtamona, you're naked Vksotamona" (Matthew 25: 36) . He says St. چirom: [real structure of the Christ is the same insurer, Flanzenh and give him clothes, to offer him gifts, to welcome Christ who it! What good jeweled walls that Christ was in the poor at risk of hunger because of the loss?! .
2. Ibrahim generous:
This meeting revealed the nature of Abraham generous in giving, was offering his heart before his food, and hosts of others inside before opening them to his tent. It appeared clearly as "ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed to the ground." , which was to them when he is old and bowed to greet, as it was expected to be hosted. In the vastness of the heart, said: "Lord, if I have found favor in your eyes, do not pass your servant, a little water and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree, he took a piece of bread Vtsndon hearts then Tgtazon, because you may through too on Abdkm, they said, so do as I spoke" 3-5].
Have they believe Ibrahim people traveling, he asked them to accept wash their feet and Asendwa heart defeatedly bread after that rest under the shade of a tree and then leave ... Thus speaks in love and longing for the tender spirit humility, seeking to wash their feet, according to its offering but it is a crumb sign love simple does not reject.
Abraham began to wash away, and he says Origen: I knew that the secrets of the Lord could not find perfection, but at least if we wash our feet . And St. Ambrose says: [Hassan is the mystery of humility as I wash the defilement of others wash Adnasa . And was the beginning of hosting is not washed away, but Aladnas forgiveness of others' mistakes committed by them against us, such as wash Adnashm but we wash our Adnasna.
3. The preparation of the feast:
"Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah and said: Hurry three measures of fine Smiva, and knead and make a cake, then Abraham ran to the cow and took a calf tender and good, and gave it to the boy hurried to his work." [6-7].
It is noted in this feast the following:
First, when he saw the men of Abraham "ran" with that he was an old man, but to do good running quickly as a child rejoices work. As before men call faster to Sarah and asked her to hurry to do good, and gave the calf to his servant faster to work ... So Abraham was, his wife and his servants, everyone is not doing good and by, but the speed in it, and if they take the opportunity to avoid slip through their hands. Origen says: [Abraham being, and his wife in a hurry, and speeds up the boy, as there is no sloth in the house of the wise . He says St. John Chrysostom: [I've coached Ibrahim servants Well well ... we also think about their salvation, it is our duty and interest including Akhaddmona to be good and the exercise of the divine agenda .
So the house was blessed Abraham, and his wife is working and service account in the spirit of the Lord vigilant and heart flamed not know inactivity.
If Abraham represents the human psyche, which starts outside the tent to sit at the Cross hosts all love, Sarah represents the holy **** in the Lord, which offers a cake rejoices the heart of God. Sarah has been involved with Abraham in the hospitality, and so the **** involved with the breath of life in union with God and walk with his Holy Spirit. The servants referring to those of human energies and talents that offer sacrifices love God also gave Ghulam Abraham!
Second: Ibrahim asked his wife Sarah that kneaded three attorneys from semolina flour any fine flour, it offers guests Ibrahim old bread, but always like to come proud of what he has, and the work of his wife, the elderly, and the quantity and ample. The three attorneys may refer to "faith, hope and love", these three things that Tjnha church to offer to the Lord in the lives of her children bread posh God is pleased with it. This is the offering of continuing the church, especially since these things but kneaded with water of the Holy Spirit. In spirit Jerusalem as the heart is filled with self-belief starts toward the heavenly bridegroom, and with hope beyond all difficult and filled with joy, and love intervened to where the throne of God, "the same love." This is the spiritual Jeenna is separate, with which we create in the bosom of God Ktkdma love him.
"Bread Milli" is the bread is made on the stones Mahmah and is one of the bread-Nafis (1 Kings 19: 6), it was a pleasant (church) offers our lump of three attorneys (faith, hope and love), this dough is not fit to eat and not be delighting to the Lord only during stones superheater, any company with the Lord in the nation, to champion the cake. Back pain and stiff, but with the Lord turn to the glories or offering to bake precious to God.
Third, as Abraham put food in front of them, "he stood by them under the tree." . Abraham did not accelerate, his wife and servants to work quickly and offer their best in hosting strangers, but also when he is old ... he had the servants and slaves and maids, but he stands by himself to serve strangers, no love like this ?!
To stand with Abraham under the tree Cross serve others in humility and joy, we serve the Lord himself in them!
4. Enjoy Sarah Balthmr:
Love Abraham and Sarah made the best of what they have to the Lord, and love for the Lord accept the waiver of rights-Attiyah that, in fact, is from him, as Solomon said that what is provided is that of God. Taking the Lord does not accept to be owed replies love with love, as he asked for Sarah, told him: "Here is in the tent." , "he said, Here I go back to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son." . I've hosted the Lord, behold, the Lord is come to these two sheikhs applicants in the days  a son, and lives like a life of death, and stones to raise up children of Abraham ... and Hbhma "Isaac," which means "laughter." It really laughed, as is said about Sarah, a barren and elderly as a mother, and What is the greatest it through Isaac Savior Messiah pregnant **** as the son has come a Rabbo, Vtaatpark by all nations! It is a work of high God, the mystery can not be realized! This is the fruit enjoyed by parents father Abraham and Sarah through their faith working through love.
Men have asked: "Where is Sarah your wife? And he said: Behold, is in the tent." . Abraham was at the door of the tent, while Sarah was in the tent behind Ibrahim , Abraham was represented released self in the freedom of the Holy Spirit outside the tent any above all flesh pressure, while Sarah refers to the **** that need to be behind the self and not before it, is subject **** the demands of the self in the Lord, not self-serving demands of the ****. When the **** is subject to the same sacred in the Lord, unite the two together they'll have to Isaac, which means "laughter" or "joy", shall be a whole human excitedly, holding the fruit of the Spirit.
Complements modern revelation: "It was Abraham and Sarah were two candidates in the days."  ...; with that Abraham and Sarah did not live long as their former years, but this is the first time that the person described in Advanced sheikh days. Origen says they Sheikhan any Mmluan wisdom, and in the days since Mottagdman Biaa not one of the days of their lives without the fruit of the spirit, day and night, all their days without light, without their expense recorded for the loss, so it was said, "applicants in days."
Says Origen: [sinner is advanced in the days it does not do this: forgetting what lies behind and extends to what is before (at 3:13), but always look back (Luke 9: 62), this is not fit for the kingdom of God (Luke 9: 62). On the contrary, as we build out to the sight and strive towards perfection be applicants in the days .
Download Abraham and Sarah aging wisdom and progress of days in the grace not aging deficit and provide days to be paid to death ... I've enjoyed this blessing and Nala this title, because they hosted the word of God and the angels, and she became their lives sky, and qualified for the promise of Isaac symbol of Christ, Vhspa against two Senators Gamin in the Lord.
Sarah heard the promise, "laughed Sarah within herself, saying: further decay have me blessed lord being old? And the Lord said: Why did Sarah laugh, saying Avbalhakikh worst and I am too old, is impossible for the Lord something ?! in the Promised attributed to you about the time of life and be Sarah son. Vonkert Sarah, saying: I did not laugh, because they faint. He said: No, but I laughed. "[12-15].
St. Clement of Alexandria believes that Sarah laughed, not for lack of ratification of the promise, but I was ashamed of the position, how to be a son after the mother of , and sees St. Augustine  she laughed with joy but they were not filled with faith.
Abraham laughed when the news was heard and worshiped the Lord on his face (17:17), and Sarah laughed within herself, (18:13), Vangba Isaac, which means "laughter," even mention God's work with them whenever called him by his glorified God who Hbhma grace exceeds limits nature.
5. Dialogue with God:
The Abraham met the love of God with love, God spoke to him as a friend, he says: "I hide from Abraham what I am doer, and Ibrahim be big and strong nation and blessed by all the nations of the earth ...?!" [17-18].
God in his friendship with the human wishes, but hides his secrets ... "mystery of God to those who fear him" (Ps. 15:10), and as has been said in Amos: "The Lord God will do nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets" (Amos 3: 7) . If God resides Ibrahim great nation and enjoy the coming of Jesus Christ of his descendants, who do this all the nations of the earth be blessed, so talk to him in the frankness and openness of heart, so that children learn to fellowship with God and opening their hearts to him.
Lord announced the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah to Abraham, saying: "The cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great and their sin is very grievous, drop and I Are they did exactly as follows screams to me, but may know" [20-21].
The ugliness of what human reached in his evil appears, as became sins cry out to ask the punishment of the perpetrators, or that the earth - creation rigid - no longer tolerate this corruption became moaning to God to take revenge from human, so as the blood of Abel blatant act of God because of the cruelty of Cain (Genesis 4:10), and as the voice taxi reapers Almnjush while screaming from the oppression of the owners of the fields (James 5: 4).
Sodom and Gomorrah were two cities near the Dead Sea resided in one Lot; first means "burning", and the second means "flood (flood) ." Thus become Sodom and Gomorrah symbol of sin that drive human combustion as to fire or drowning in the flood.
The term "down and see" do not understand the literal sense, the object of God everywhere, but the term fits our humanity reveals God's justice, not punished quickly but as one who waits until the come down and see for himself what man is doing ... it's busy all human life.
God came down to us to see our sins ... and he says Origen: [to be carried as it takes the form of a slave (in 2: 7) . It's come down to us in order to carry baggage time and pay our religion, and lift us up with him as he did on the Mount of Transfiguration (Mk 9: 2).
After this talk angels went to Sodom and Gomorrah, Abraham and stayed in front of the Lord ... In love function "provides Ibrahim said: Avchlk righteous with the wicked? It may be fifty righteous within the city ..." [23-24]. Did not speak with the Lord respective he or his wife in Andjabhma Isaac by the promise of God to them, but all the feelings Ibrahim had absorbed in those who are exposed to destruction, to stand in interceding in them! It is a vivid portrait of mature love that it is busy human salvation of his brothers, and asked them more than for himself !, Even though this non-evil and deserved to die. As St. John Chrysostom says: [Ibrahim appeared against someone who asks for it with Abrar was asking for everyone. The hearts of the saints is very thin and love to others, love for the salvation of the same as for the salvation of strangers .
If God has opened the door to dialogue with the mistress of Abraham, the Abraham in turn committed to the spirit of humility in his interview with the Lord. As St. Augustine says: [When Abraham spoke with God and closed the door to talk to him in the burning of Sodom is said: "I am dust and ashes." This is a great humility that characterizes the great saints! . He says St. John Chrysostom: [to Ntda to rise, the vainglory loves human beings completely. Thus degenerated Pharaoh when he said: "I do not know the Lord" (Exodus 5: 2), it became less of flies, frogs, locusts, and after this is sinking and his army and his horses in the sea. On the contrary, as Ibrahim said: "I am dust and ashes" dominated nations barbaric, and fell into the hands of the Egyptians (Pharaoh and his entourage) came back carrying a victory more glorious than the first, Baltsagah this virtue grew up about the height . And St. Ambrose says: [Ayoub sat in the dirt Vaguetny all lost (ie 2: 8; 43: 10) .
