VIII. Ukudalula Imibono Yenkolo

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 281)

Akunakuthiwa uNkulunkulu nomuntu bayalingana. Ubuyena nomsebenzi Wakhe kungaphezulu kokuqonda kwabantu. Uma uNkulunkulu engawenzi Yena uqobo umsebenzi Wakhe akhulume amazwi Akhe emhlabeni wabantu, kusho ukuthi abantu ngeke bakwazi ukuyiqonda intando kaNkulunkulu, ngalokho-ke, nalabo abanikele impilo yabo yonke kuNkulunkulu ngeke bakwazi ukuzuza ukwamukelwa Nguye. Ngaphandle komsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, noma ngabe umuntu wenza kahle kanjani, ngeke kusho lutho lokho, ngoba imicabango kaNkulunkulu iyohlale ingaphezulu kwemicabango yomuntu, kanti nokuhlakanipha kukaNkulunkulu akuqondakali kumuntu. Ngalokho-ke ngithi labo “ababona ngokucacile” uNkulunkulu nomsebenzi Wakhe abanalo iqiniso, bayaqhosha futhi abanalwazi. Abantu akumele bachaze umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu; ngaphezu kwalokho, abantu abakwazi ukuchaza umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Emehlweni kaNkulunkulu, umuntu mncane ngisho kunentuthwane, ngakho umuntu angawuqonda kanjani umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu? Labo abaphikelelayo bethi, “uNkulunkulu akasebenzi ngale ndlela noma ngaleya ndlela” noma “uNkulunkulu ufana nalokhu noma lokhuya”—ingabe bonke abaqhoshi? Sonke kumele sazi ukuthi abantu abayinyama, bonke uSathane ubenze bakhohlakala. Kungokwemvelo kubo ukuphikisana noNkulunkulu, futhi abalingani noNkulunkulu, ingasaphathwa eyokunikeza iseluleko ngomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Ukuthi uNkulunkulu umhola kanjani umuntu kungumsebenzi kaNkulunkulu Uqobo Lwakhe. Abantu kumele bazithobe, futhi akumele babe nombono othile, ngoba umuntu uwuthuli. Njengoba sizama ukufuna uNkulunkulu ngeke sikwazi ukufaka ukuqonda kwethu emsebenzini kaNkulunkulu ukuze uNkulunkulu akubheke, kanjalo akumele sisebenzise isimo sethu esikhohlakele sizame ukuphikisa umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu ngenhloso. Ingabe lokho ngeke kusenze abaphikikrestu? Abantu abanjalo bangasho kanjani ukuthi bakholelwa kuNkulunkulu? Njengoba sikholelwa ukuthi ukhona uNkulunkulu, futhi njengoba sifisa ukumanelisa nokumbona, kumele sifune indlela yeqiniso, futhi sibheke indlela yokuvumelana noNkulunkulu. Akumele sibe ontamo-lukhuni siphikisane noNkulunkulu; yini enhle engavela ngokwenza kanjalo?

Namuhla, uNkulunkulu unomsebenzi omusha. Kungenzeka ungawamukeli la mazwi, angezwakala engavamisile kuwe, kodwa ngineluleka ukuba ningavezi ubunina bemvelo, ngoba yilabo abalambele nabomele ukulunga phambi kukaNkulunkulu abangathola iqiniso, futhi yilabo kuphela abazinikele ngeqiniso abangase bakhanyiselwe futhi baqondiswe Nguye. Imiphumela itholakala ngokufuna ngokuthula okunokuzotha, hhayi ngokulwa nokuncintisana. Uma ngithi “namuhla, uNkulunkulu wenze umsebenzi omusha,” ngibhekise odabeni lokubuyela kukaNkulunkulu enyameni. Mhlawumbe awunandaba nala mazwi, kungenzeka uyawazonda, noma unentshisekelo ngawo. Noma ngabe yikuphi, ngithemba ukuthi bonke laba abafisa ukuvela kukaNkulunkulu bangabhekana naleli qiniso balicabangisise. Kungcono ukungajahi ukufinyelela eziphethweni. Lena yindlela abantu abahlakaniphile okumele benze ngayo.

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 282)

Ekukholelweni kwakho kuNkulunkulu, iyiphi indlela okumele wazi ngayo uNkulunkulu? Kumele wazi uNkulunkulu ngokusekelwe emazwini nasemsebenzini Wakhe wanamuhla, ngaphandle kokuchezuka noma inkolelo-mbono, futhi ngaphambi kwakho konke kumele uqale wazi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Lokhu kuyisisekelo sokwazi uNkulunkulu. Zonke lezi zinkolelo-mibono ezingenakho ukwamukeleka okuhlanzekile kwamazwi kaNkulunkulu ziyimibono yenkolo, ziwukwamukela okulahlekisayo nokunamaphutha. Osaziwayo kwezenkolo bawompetha kakhulu ekuthatha amazwi kaNkulunkulu ayemukelekile endulo bese beqhathanisa amazwi kaNkulunkulu anamuhla nawo. Uma ngesikhathi sokusebenzela uNkulunkulu namuhla, unamathela ezintweni ezazikhanyiswe uMoya oNgcwele kudala, khona-ke umsebenzi wakho uzoba ngophazamisayo, kanti nokwenzayo kuzophelelwa isikhathi futhi akunakuba okunye ngaphandle kwenkonzo yenkolo nje. Uma ukholelwa ukuthi labo abasebenzela uNkulunkulu kumele babe nentobeko nokubekezela ngaphandle…, futhi uma uthatha lolu hlobo lolwazi ulwenze namuhla, khona-ke lolo lwazi lungumbono wenkolo, futhi ukwenza kanjalo kuba ukwenza kokuzenzisa. “Imibono yenkolo” ibhekisela ezintweni eziphelelwe isikhathi nokungasasebenzi namuhla (okubandakanya ukwamukela amazwi akhulunywa uNkulunkulu ngaphambilini kanye nokukhanya okudalulwe ngokuqondile uMoya oNgcwele), futhi uma kwenziwa namuhla, khona-ke kuba yiziphazamiso emsebenzini kaNkulunkulu, futhi akunanzuzo kumuntu. Uma umuntu ehluleka ukususa lezo zinto ezingaphakathi kuye eziyimibono yenkolo, khona-ke zizoba yisithiyo esikhulu ekutheni umuntu asebenzele uNkulunkulu. Abantu abanemibono yenkolo abanayo indlela yokuhambisana nezinyathelo zomsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele, basilele emuva ngesinyathelo esisodwa, bese ziba zimbili—ngoba le mibono yenkolo yenza umuntu azibone engolunge ngokweqile futhi abe nenkani. UNkulunkulu akakulangazeleli lokho akukhuluma nakwenza endulo; uma kungasasebenzi namuhla, khona-ke uyakususa. Ingabe uzokwazi ngempela ukudedela imibono yakho? Uma ubambelela emazwini kaNkulunkulu awakhuluma endulo, ngabe lokhu kufakazela ukuthi uyawazi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu? Uma ungakwazi ukwamukela ukukhanya kukaMoya oNgcwele namuhla, futhi kunalokho unamathele ekukhanyeni kwasendulo, ingabe lokhu kungafakazela ukuthi ulandela ezinyathelweni zikaNkulunkulu? Ingabe usehluleka ukudedela imibono yenkolo? Uma kunjalo, uzoba ngumuntu ophikisana noNkulunkulu.

Uma umuntu engadedela imibono yenkolo, khona-ke angeke asebenzise umqondo wakhe ukuze akale amazwi nomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu namuhla, futhi kunalokho uzolalela ngokuqondile. Yize umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu wanamuhla ubonakala ungafani nalowo wasendulo, uyakwazi ukudedela imibono yasendulo futhi ulalele umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu namuhla ngokuqondile. Uma ukwazi ukubonakalisa lolu lwazi uphakamisa umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu noma ngabe wasebenza kangakanani ngaphambilini, khona-ke uba ngumuntu odedele imibono yakhe, olalela uNkulunkulu, futhi okwazi ukulalela umsebenzi namazwi kaNkulunkulu futhi ulandela ezinyathelweni zikaNkulunkulu. Kulokhu, uzoba umuntu olalela ngempela uNkulunkulu. Awuhlaziyi noma ucubungule umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu; kuba sengathi uma uNkulunkulu ewukhohliwe umsebenzi Wakhe wangaphambilini, futhi nawe, uwukhohliwe. Isikhathi samanje ngesamanje, futhi esidlule ngesidlule, futhi njengoba namuhla uNkulunkulu ubeke eceleni lokho akwenza endulo, kumele ungagxili kukho. Yilapho kuphela oyoba umuntu olalela ngokugcwele uNkulunkulu futhi odedele imibono yakhe yenkolo.

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 283)

Ngoba kuhlala kunokusha okuvelayo emsebenzini kaNkulunkulu, kunomsebenzi ophelelwa yisikhathi futhi uguge lapho kuqhamuka umsebenzi omusha. Lezi zinhlobo zomsebenzi ezehlukene, omdala nomusha, aziphikisani, kodwa ziyaphelelisana; isinyathelo ngasinye silandela esokugcina. Ngoba kunomsebenzi omusha, izinto zakudala kumele, nakanjani, zisuswe. Isibonelo, ezinye izinqubo zakudala kanye nokwakuvame ukushiwo umuntu, kuhlanganiswe nalokho umuntu abhekana nakho eminyakeni eminingi eyadlula kanye nezimfundiso, kwakhe yonke inhlobo yemibono emqondweni womuntu. Kodwa okuyimpumelelo enkulu ekwakhekeni lena mibono komuntu wukuthi uNkulunkulu usazobudalula ubuso Bakhe ngokugcwele kanye nesimo esiyisisekelo kumuntu, kuhlanganiswe nokwenabisa, eminyakeni eminingi, kwezimfundiso ezindala zangesikhathi sasendulo. Kungcono ukuthi, ngesikhathi sokukholwa komuntu kuNkulunkulu, umthelela wemibono ehlukahlukene uholele ekuqhubekeni kokwakheka nokuguquka kwakho konke ukuqonda uNkulunkulu kubantu, okwenze ukuthi abantu benkolo abaningi abasebenzela uNkulunkulu baphenduke izitha Zakhe. Ngakho, ukuqina kwemibono yenkolo kwabantu, kudala ukuthi baphikisane ngokwengeziwe noNkulunkulu, futhi baba yizitha ezinkulu zikaNkulunkulu. Umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uhlala umusha futhi awukaze ube mdala, futhi awukaze wakhe imfundiso futhi, kunalokho, uyaqhubeka nokushintsha futhi uzenze musha kakhulu noma kancane. Lo msebenzi uvezwa yisimo esiyisisekelo sikaNkulunkulu Uqobo. Futhi kuyisimiso esiyisisekelo somsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, kanti ungenye yezindlela uNkulunkulu afeza ngazo umsebenzi Wakhe wokuphatha. Ukuba uNkulunkulu bengasebenzi ngale ndlela, umuntu bengeke ashintshe noma akwazi ukumazi uNkulunkulu, futhi uSathane bengeke aze ahlulwe. Ngakho, emsebenzini Wakhe bekuqhubeka nokuba noshintsho olubonakala lwenzeka njalo, kodwa oluye lube ngolwesikhathi esithile. Indlela umuntu akholelwa ngayo kuNkulunkulu, nokho, yehluke kakhulu. Unamathela ezimfundisweni nasezinhlelweni ezindala, ezejwayelekile, futhi uma zizindala kakhulu zihlwabusa kakhulu kuye. Kungenzeka kanjani ukuthi umqondo onobuwula womuntu, umqondo ongaguquki njengetshe, wamukela umsebenzi omusha ongaqondakali kanye namazwi kaNkulunkulu? Umuntu uzonda uNkulunkulu ohlala emusha futhi ongakaze abe mdala; uthanda uNkulunkulu omdala kuphela, osekhulile, onezinwele ezimhlophe futhi omi ndawonye. Njengoba uNkulunkulu nomuntu banalokho abakuthandayo ngokwabo, umuntu usephenduke isitha sikaNkulunkulu. Okuningi kwalokhu kushayisana kusakhona nanamuhla, ngesikhathi lapho uNkulunkulu kade enza umsebenzi omusha ngaso esicishe sibe iminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha. Ngakho-ke, kungaphezu kwesisombululo. Kungenzeka ukuthi kungenxa yenkani yomuntu, noma ubungcwele bemithetho yokuphatha kukaNkulunkulu okwenziwa umuntu—kodwa labo befundisi basabambelele ezincwadini nasemaphepheni amadala akhuntile, kube uNkulunkulu uqhubeka nomsebenzi Wakhe wokuphatha ongaphelele kube sengathi bekungekho muntu ongasohlangothini Lwakhe. Nakuba lokhu kushayisana kwenza uNkulunkulu nomuntu babe yizitha, futhi bangabi nakho ukubuyisana, uNkulunkulu akanandaba nhlobo, sengathi bebekhona kube bebengekho. Umuntu, nokho, usanamathela ezinkolelweni nasemibonweni yakhe, futhi akakudedeli nhlobo. Kube kunento eyodwa esobala: Yize umuntu engasuki ezenzweni zakhe, izinyawo zikaNkulunkulu zihlala zinyakaza futhi uhlala eshintsha izenzo Zakhe ngokwendawo, futhi ekugcineni, umuntu uyohlulwa engalwanga. Ngaleso sikhathi, uNkulunkulu uyisitha esikhulu kubo bonke abantu Bakhe abehluliwe, futhi ungumnqobi esintwini esehluliwe kanye nakulabo abasazokwehlulwa. Ubani ongaqhudelana noNkulunkulu bese enqobe? Imibono yomuntu kubukeka sengathi ivela kuNkulunkulu ngoba eminingi yayo yavela ekuqaleni komsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Kube uNkulunkulu akamxoleli umuntu ngenxa yalokhu, noma, phezu kwalokho, akenzi ukuthi umuntu adunyiswe ngokukhiqizela “uNkulunkulu” imikhiqizo engaphandle komsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Kunalokho, unengeka kakhulu ngemibono yomuntu kanye nezinkolelo ezindala, ezilungile, futhi akacabangi ngisho ukuvuma nosuku le mibono eyaqala ukuvela ngalo. Akakwamukeli nhlobo ukuthi le mibono yabangelwa umsebenzi Wakhe, ngoba imibono yomuntu isabalaliswa umuntu; umthombo wayo imicabango kanye nomqondo womuntu, futhi akuyena uNkulunkulu, kodwa uSathane. Inhloso kaNkulunkulu beyiselokhu ingeyokuthi umsebenzi Wakhe ube musha futhi uphile, ungabi mdala futhi ufe, nalokho enza ukuthi umuntu abambelele kukho kwahlukana ngokwenkathi nesikhathi, futhi akuyikho okwaphakade futhi okungashintshi. Lokho kwenziwa wukuthi Yena unguNkulunkulu owenza umuntu aphile futhi abe musha, kunodeveli owenza ukuthi umuntu afe futhi aguge. Ingabe anikakuqondi lokhu? Unemibono ngoNkulunkulu futhi uyehluleka ukuyidedela ngoba awufuni ukwamukela. Akusikho ukuthi kwenziwa ukuqonda umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu kancane, noma ngoba umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu awuhambisani nezifiso zomuntu—noma, phezu kwakho konke, yingoba uNkulunkulu uhlala ebudedengu emsebenzini Wakhe. Ukuthi awukwazi ukudedela imibono yakho ngoba untula kakhulu ukulalela, futhi awunawo nomncane umfanekiso wesidalwa sikaNkulunkulu, futhi hhayi ngoba uNkulunkulu ekwenzela izinto zibe nzima. Konke lokhu kudalwe nguwe, futhi akuhlangene nhlobo noNkulunkulu; konke ukuhlupheka namashwa kudalwe umuntu. Izinhloso zikaNkulunkulu zihlala zizinhle: Akafisi ukukwenza uveze imibono, kodwa ukufisela ukuthi ushintshe futhi uguqulwe njengoba kuhamba iminyaka. Kodwa awukwazi ukubona umehluko, futhi uhlala ucubungula noma uhlaziya. Akusikho ukuthi uNkulunkulu ukwenzela izinto zibe nzima, kodwa ukuthi awunakho ukwesaba kokuhlonipha uNkulunkulu, futhi ukungalaleli kwakho kukhulu kakhulu. Isidalwa esincanyana ngeke size silinge sithathe ingxenyana yalokho owawukunikwe uNkulunkulu ngaphambilini, bese siphenduka sihlasele uNkulunkulu ngakho—ingabe lokhu akukhona yini ukungalaleli komuntu? Umuntu, singasho ngokungachemi, akafanelekile nhlobo ukuveza imibono yakhe phambi kukaNkulunkulu, futhi akafanelekile ngokwengeziwe ukubukisa ngolimi lwakhe olungenamsebenzi, olunukayo, olubolile, oluqaphuzayo ngokuthanda kwakhe—ingasaphathwa eyaleyo mibono ekhuntile. Ayive iyinto engelutho kakhulu?

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 284)

Umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uyaqhubeka nokuthuthuka, futhi nakuba inhloso yomsebenzi Wakhe ingaguquki, izindlela asebenza ngazo ziyaguquguquka njalo, kanjalo nangalabo abalandela uNkulunkulu. Ubuningi bomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, busho ukuthi abantu sebemazi kahle uNkulunkulu, nesimo somuntu siguquka ngokuhambisana nomsebenzi Wakhe. Kodwa-ke, kungenxa yokuthi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uyaguquka yingakho labo abangawazi umsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele nalabo abangenangqondo abangalazi iqiniso babe abaphikisi bakaNkulunkulu. Umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu awukaze ulandele imicabango yabantu, ngoba umsebenzi Wakhe uhlale umusha awubi mdala. Akakaze nanini aphinde umsebenzi omdala kodwa kunalokho uqhubekela phambili nomsebenzi ongakaze wenziwe ngaphambilini. Njengoba uNkulunkulu engawuphindi umsebenzi Wakhe nabantu belokhu behlulela umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu wanamuhla ngomsebenzi Wakhe wesikhathi esidlule, kunzima kakhulu ukuba uNkulunkulu aqhube isigaba ngasinye somsebenzi wenkathi entsha. Umuntu uletha izihibe eziningi kakhulu! Ukucabanga komuntu kuncane impela! Akekho umuntu owazi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, kodwa bonke bayawuchaza lo msebenzi. Uma ekude noNkulunkulu, umuntu ulahlekelwa ukuphila, iqiniso, kanye nezibusiso zikaNkulunkulu, kodwa umuntu akamukeli ukuphila noma iqiniso, kanjalo nezibusiso ezinkulu uNkulunkulu azibeke phezu komuntu. Bonke abantu bafisa ukuzuza uNkulunkulu kodwa abakwazi ukubekezelela ushintsho emsebenzini kaNkulunkulu. Labo abangawamukeli umsebenzi omusha kaNkulunkulu bakholelwa ukuthi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu awuguquki, nokuthi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uhlala ume nse. Ekukholelweni kwabo, konke okudingekayo ukuze uzuze ukusindiswa kwangunaphakade kuNkulunkulu ukuthi ugcine umthetho, nokuthi inqobo nje uma bephenduka bevuma izono zabo, intando kaNkulunkulu izokwaneliseka ingunaphakade. Bacabanga ukuthi uNkulunkulu angaba uNkulunkulu kuphela ngaphansi komthetho nokuthi uNkulunkulu owabethelwa esiphambanweni ngenxa yabantu; baphinde bacabange ukuthi uNkulunkulu akumele futhi angeke abe ngaphezu kweBhayibheli. Yiyo kanye le mibono ebabophele yabaqinisa emthethweni wakudala yabagcina beboshelelwe emithethweni enzima. Ngisho nabaningi bakholelwa ukuthi noma yimuphi umsebenzi omusha kaNkulunkulu, kumelwe usekelwe iziphrofetho, nokuthi esigabeni ngasinye somsebenzi onjalo, bonke labo abamlandela ngenhliziyo eqinisekile kumele baboniswe izambulo, ngale kwalokho lowo msebenzi ngeke kube okaNkulunkulu. Kakade akuwona umsebenzi olula kumuntu ukwazi uNkulunkulu. Uma usuhlanganisa nenhliziyo yomuntu emangazayo nendalo yakhe yokuhlubuka yokuzazisa nokuzidla, konke lokhu kwenza kube nzima kakhulu ukuba abantu bamukele umsebenzi omusha kaNkulunkulu. Umuntu akawufundisisi umsebenzi omusha kaNkulunkulu ngokucophelela noma awemukele ngokuthobeka; kunalokho, umuntu uba nesimo sokungahloniphi, elinde izambulo nokuholwa uNkulunkulu. Lena akuyona indlela yokuziphatha yabantu abahlubuka nabaphikisa uNkulunkulu? Abantu abanjalo bangakuthola kanjani ukwamukelwa uNkulunkulu?

Ngaleso sikhathi, uJesu wathi umsebenzi kaJehova usalele emuva eNkathini Yomusa, kunjengoba ngisho namuhla ukuthi umsebenzi kaJesu usalele emuva. Uma ngabe kube khona iNkathi Yomthetho kuphela yangaba khona iNkathi Yomusa, uJesu ngabe akabethelwanga futhi ngabe akabahlenganga bonke abantu; uma ngabe kwaba khona iNkathi Yomthetho kuphela, ingabe abantu babezoba khona kuze kube namuhla? Umlando uqhubekela phambili; umlando awuwona yini umthetho wemvelo womsebenzi kaNkulunkulu? Ingabe lokhu akuvezi ukuphatha Kwakhe umuntu emhlabeni wonke? Umlando uqhubekela phambili, kanjalo nomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, nentando kaNkulunkulu iyaqhubeka nokuguquka. Ngeke kwenzeke ukuthi uNkulunkulu agcine isigaba esisodwa somsebenzi iminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha, ngoba bonke abantu bayazi ukuthi uhlale emusha akabi mdala. Ubengeke akwazi ukuqhubeka agcine umsebenzi ofana nokubethelwa, kanye, kabili, kathathu … abethelwe esiphambanweni. Lokhu ukubona komuntu ongenangqondo. UNkulunkulu akagcini umsebenzi ofanayo, futhi umsebenzi Wakhe uhlale uguquka futhi umusha njalo, njengoba ngihlale ngikhuluma nani amazwi amasha ngenze nomsebenzi omusha. Lona umsebenzi engiwenzayo, ukubaluleka kwawo kuvezwe emagameni athi “omusha” nelithi “omangazayo.” “UNkulunkulu akaguquki, futhi uNkulunkulu uyohlala enguNkulunkulu”; lesi sisho siyiqiniso ngempela. Ubuqu bukaNkulunkulu abuguquki, uNkulunkulu uhlale enguNkulunkulu, futhi ngeke abe uSathane, kodwa lokhu akubona ubufakazi bokuthi nomsebenzi Wakhe nawo awuguquguquki njengobuqu Bakhe. Uthi uNkulunkulu uyilokhu, kodwa ungakuchaza kanjani ukuthi uNkulunkulu uhlale emusha akabi mdala? Umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uyaqhubeka nokusabalala uguquguquke njalo, futhi intando kaNkulunkulu ilokhu ibonakala futhi yenziwa yaziwe kubantu. Njengoba umuntu ebona umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, isimo sakhe silokhu siguquka, nolwazi lwakhe luyaqhubeka luguquke. Pho, ivelaphi le nguquko? Ayiveli yini emsebenzini kaNkulunkulu oguquka njalo? Uma isimo somuntu singaguquka, kungani pho umuntu engavumeli umsebenzi Wami namazwi Ami ukuba kuhlale kuguquka? Ingabe kumele ngizithobe emingceleni ebekwe umuntu? Ingabe anizinikeli enkohlisweni?

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 285)

AmaJuda angalesiya sikhathi onke afunda eTestamenteni Elidala futhi azi ngesiphrofetho sika-Isaya ukuthi ingane yomfana izozalelwa emkhombeni. Kungani pho, sebenalolu lwazi, baqhubeka bemshushisa uJesu? Ingabe lokhu akungenxa yesimo sabo sokuhlubuka sendalo nokungawazi umsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele? Ngaleso sikhathi, abaFarisi babekholelwa ukuthi umsebenzi kaJesu wawungafani nalokhu ababekwazi okwaphrofethwa ngengane yom fana; abantu banamuhla baphika uNkulunkulu ngenxa yokuthi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu osenyameni awuhambisani neBhayibheli. Ingabe into eyenza ukuba bahlubuke uNkulunkulu ayiyona into eyodwa efanayo? Ningakwazi ukwamukela ngaphandle kwemibuzo wonke umsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele? Uma kungumsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele, lokho kusho ukuthi “ngumthombo” ofanele. Kumele uwamukele ngaphandle kokungabaza, kunokuba ukhethe ofuna ukukwamukela. Uma uzuza ulwazi oluthile kuNkulunkulu futhi ube nokungabaza Ngaye, khona-ke ngabe lokhu akuyona into engadingekile? Awudingi ukufuna okunye ukwesekelwa eBhayibhelini; uma kuwumsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele, kufanele ukwamukele, ngoba ukholwa kuNkulunkulu ukuze ulandele uNkulunkulu, hhayi ukumphenya. Akumele nifune obunye ubufakazi obungubufakazi bokuthi nginguNkulunkulu wenu. Kunalokho, kumele nihlukanise ukuthi nginalo na usizo kini; ilokho okusemqoka. Yize senithole ubufakazi obungephikiswe eBhayibhelini, ngeke bunilethe ngokuphelele phambi Kwami. Yini eniphila emingceleni yeBhayibheli, hhayi phambi Kwami; iBhayibheli ngeke linisize ukuba nazi Mina, futhi ngeke lijulise uthando lwenu Ngami. Yize iBhayibheli laphrofetha ukuthi ingane yomfana izozalwa, akekho owaqonda ukuthi isiphrofetho sizofezeka ngobani, ngoba umuntu ubengawazi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, yikho lokhu okwenza ukuba abaFarisi balwisane noJesu. Abanye bayazi ukuthi umsebenzi Wami owokusiza abantu, kodwa basaqhubeka nokukholelwa ukuthi uJesu Nami abantu ababili abahlukene abangasoze baqhathaniswa. Ngaleso sikhathi, uJesu wakhuluma kubafundi Bakhe kuphela ochungechungeni lwezintshumayelo eNkathini Yomusa, ezifana nokuthi bangenza kanjani, bangahlanganyela kanjani ndawonye, bangacela kanjani ngomkhuleko, bangabaphatha kanjani abanye, nokunye. Umsebenzi awenza wawungoweNkathi Yomusa, futhi wachaza kuphela ukuthi kumele abafundi nalabo abamlandelayo benze kanjani. Wenza umsebenzi weNkathi Yomusa kuphela akenzanga lutho okwezinsuku zokugcina. Ngenkathi uJehova ebeka imithetho yeTestamente Elidala eNkathini Yomthetho, kungani engenzanga nomsebenzi weNkathi Yomusa? Kungani engawenzanga wacaca ekuqaleni umsebenzi weNkathi Yomusa? Ingabe lokhu bekungeke kusize ekwamukeleni kwabantu? Waphrofetha ukuthi ingane yomfana izozalwa bese iyabusa, kodwa akazange akwenze singakafiki isikhathi umsebenzi weNkathi Yomusa. Umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu enkathini ngayinye unemingcele ecacile; wenza kuphela umsebenzi wenkathi yangaleso sikhathi futhi akawenzi umsebenzi wesigaba esilandelayo singakafiki isikhathi sawo. Yingale ndlela kuphela ezokwenza ukuba umsebenzi wesigaba ngasinye ulethwe phambili. UJesu wakhuluma kuphela ngezimpawu zezinsuku zokugcina, ngokuthi ubekezela kanjani nokuthi usindiswa kanjani, nokuthi uyophenduka kanjani uvume nezono, kanjalo nokuthi usithwala kanjani isiphambano ubekezelele ukuhlupheka; akaze akhulume ngendlela umuntu ezinsukwini zokugcina okumele angene ngayo, noma ngokuthi kumele bafune kanjani ukwanelisa intando kaNkulunkulu. Kanjalo, ngeke kube amanga ukubheka eBhayibhelini ukuze uthole umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu wezinsuku zokugcina? Yini ongayihlukanisa ngokubamba iBhayibheli kuphela ezandleni zakho? Kungaba ngutolika weBhayibheli noma umshumayeli, ubani ongazi ngaphambili umsebenzi wanamuhla?

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 286)

Niyafisa ukwazi umsuka wokuthi kungani abaFarisi babephikisana noJesu? Niyafisa ukwazi ubunjalo babaFarisi? Babegcwele imicabango ngoMesiya. Okungaphezulu, ukuthi babekholwa ukuthi uMesiya uyofika, kodwa abafunanga iqiniso lokuphila. Ngakho, nanamuhla, basalindele uMesiya, ngokuba abanalwazi ngendlela yokuphila, futhi abazi ukuthi iyiphi indlela yeqiniso. Kungenzeka kanjani, kusho nina, ukuthi abantu abayiziwula, abanenkani futhi abangazi njengalaba bazuze isibusiso sikaNkulunkulu? Babengambheka kanjani uMesiya? Baphikisana noJesu ngoba babengayazi indlela yomsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele, ngoba babengayazi indlela yeqiniso eyakhulunywa uJesu, okunye futhi, ingoba babengamqondi uMesiya. Futhi njengoba babengakaze bambone uMesiya, futhi bengakaze bahlalisane noMesiya, benza iphutha lokubambelela ngokuyize egameni likaMesiya, kulapho bephikisana nengqikithi kaMesiya ngazo zonke izindlela. Laba baFarisi ngobunjalo babo babenenkani, bezikhukhumeza, futhi bengalilaleli iqiniso. Umgomo wenkolo yabo kuNkulunkulu uthi: Noma intshumayelo Yakho inomqondo kangakanani, noma ngabe igunya Lakho liphezulu kangakanani, awusiye uKristu, ngaphandle uma ubizwa ngoMesiya. Ayive le mibono ingezwakali futhi ingenangqondo na? Ngiyabuza futhi: Akulula kakhulu na kinina ukuthi nenze amaphutha abaFarisi basekuqaleni, njengoba ningenakho nokuncane ukuqonda ngoJesu? Niyakwazi yini ukubona indlela yeqiniso? Ningaqinisekisa ukuthi ngeke nimelane noKristu? Niyakwazi yini ukulandela umsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele? Uma ungazi noma uyomphikisa yini uKristu, ngithi vele usuphila engcupheni yokufa. Labo ababengamazi uMesiya babekwazi ukuphikisana noJesu, noma bamdikile uJesu, noma bamhlebe. Bonke abantu abangamqondi uJesu bangakwazi ukumphika, futhi bamthuke. Ikakhulukazi, bangakwazi ukubona ukubuya kukaJesu njengenkohliso kaSathane, futhi abantu abaningi bazomehlulela uJesu obuyele enyameni. Akukusabisi yini konke lokhu? Lokhu oyobhekana nakho ukuhlambalaza uMoya oNgcwele, ukona amazwi kaMoya oNgcwele emabandleni, nokulahla konke okwabonakaliswa uJesu. Ungazuzani kuJesu uma udideke kangaka? Ningawuqonda kanjani umsebenzi kaJesu uma ebuya enyameni ngefu elimhlophe, uma ninqaba ngenkani ukubona amaphutha enu? Nginitshela lokhu: abantu abangalamukeli iqiniso, nokho, ngobumpumputhe balindele ukufika kukaJesu ngamafu amhlophe, ngokuqinisekileyo bayohlambalaza uMoya oNgcwele, futhi bayisigaba esiyobhujiswa. Nimane nifisa umusa kaJesu, futhi nimane nifuna ukuthokozela umkhathi wasezulwini onentokozo, kepha anikaze niwalalele amazwi akhulunywa uJesu, futhi anikaze nilamukele iqiniso elakhulunywa uJesu uma Ebuya enyameni. Yini oyoyiphakamisela ukubuya kukaJesu ngefu elimhlophe? Ubuqotho enenza ngabo izono niphindelela bese niyazivuma, njalo njalo? Yini oyoyenza ibe umnikelo kuJesu Kristu uma ebuya ngefu elimhlophe? Ingabe iminyaka yokusebenza eniziphakamisa ngayo? Yini oyoyiphakamisa ukuze uJesu osebuyile akwethembe? Ingabe imvelo yakho yokuzikhukhumeza, engalilaleli nanoma iliphi iqiniso?

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 287)

Ukwethembeka kwenu kusemazwini kuphela, ulwazi lwenu ukuhlakanipha nokucabanga, imisebenzi yenu eyokuzuza izibusiso zasezulwini, ngakho, ukukholwa kwenu kungabe kunjani? Nanamuhla, nisavala izindlebe zenu kulona lonke izwi leqiniso. Anazi ukuthi uNkulunkulu uyini, anazi ukuthi uKristu uyini, anazi ukuthi niMhloniphe kanjani uJehova, anazi ukuthi ningene kanjani emsebenzini kaMoya oNgcwele. Anazi futhi ukwahlukanisa phakathi komsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uqobo kanye nokukhohlisa komuntu. Nazi kuphela ukwahlulela noma iliphi izwi leqiniso elikhulunywa uNkulunkulu elingahambisani nomcabango wenu. Kuphi ukuthobeka kwenu? Kuphi ukulalela kwenu? Kuphi ukwethembeka kwenu? Kuphi ukulangazelela kwenu ukufuna iqiniso? Kuphi ukumhlonipha uNkulunkulu? Ngiyanitshela, labo abakholwa kuNkulunkulu ngenxa yezibonakaliso, impela bayisigaba esiyozwa ukubhujiswa. Labo abangakwazi ukwamukela amazwi kaJesu osebuyile enyameni, impela bayinzalo yesihogo, isizukulwane sengelosi enkulu, isigaba esizoya ekubhujisweni okuphakade. Abantu abaningi kungenzeka bangakunaki engikushoyo, kodwa ngisafuna ukutshela bonke ababizwa ngabangcwele abalandela uJesu ukuthi, lapho nibona uJesu ehla ezulwini ngefu elimhlophe ngamehlo enu, lokhu kuyoba ukubonakala emphakathini kweLanga lokulunga. Kungenzeka, leso kuyoba isikhathi sokujabula kini, nokho kumele nazi ukuthi ngesikhathi nibona uJesu ehla ezulwini, kuyoba futhi isikhathi sokuthi niye phansi esihogweni niyojeziswa. Lokho kuyoba yisikhathi sokuphela kohlelo lokuphatha lukaNkulunkulu, futhi kuyoba isikhathi lapho uNkulunkulu eyovuza abahle bese ejezisa ababi. Ngokuba ukwahlulela kukaNkulunkulu kuyophela ngaphambi kokuba umuntu abone izibonakaliso, lapho kukhona ukuvezwa kweqiniso kuphela. Labo abemukela iqiniso, bengabheki izibonakaliso, futhi sebehlanziwe, bayobe sebebuyela phambi kwesihlalo sikaNkulunkulu futhi sebengene ekugonweni nguMdali. Labo kuphela abaphokophelela enkolweni ethi “uJesu ongagibeli efwini elimhlophe unguKristu wamanga” bayothola ukujeziswa okuphakade, ngokuba bakholwa kuphela kuJesu obonisa izibonakaliso, kodwa abamazisi uJesu omemezela ngokwahlulelwa okunzima bese ekhipha indlela yeqiniso yokuphila. Futhi kungaba kuphela ukuthi uJesu ubhekana nabo uma ebuya ngokusobala ngefu elimhlophe. Banenkani kakhulu, banokuzethemba kakhulu, futhi bayazikhukhumeza. Kungenzeka kanjani abantu abonakele kanje bavuzwe uJesu? Ukubuya kukaJesu kuyinsindiso enkulu kulabo abakwazi ukwamukela iqiniso, kodwa kulabo abangakwazi ukwamukela iqiniso, kuwuphawo lokwahlulelwa. Kumele nikhethe indlela yenu, ningahlambalazi uMoya oNgcwele futhi nenqabe iqiniso. Kumele ningabi abantu abangenalwazi futhi abakhukhumele, kodwa abantu abalalela ukuholwa uMoya oNgcwele, balangazelele futhi bafune iqiniso; ingalendlela kuphela lapho niyothola ukusizakala. Ngiyaniyala ukuthi nithathe indlela yokukholwa kuNkulunkulu ngokunakekela. Ningathathi izinqumo ngokushesha; ngaphezu kwalokho, ningathathi kalula futhi ningani nokungacabangi ekukholweni kwenu kuNkulunkulu. Kumele nikwazi lokhu, okungenani, labo abakholwa kuNkulunkulu kumele bazithobe futhi bahloniphe. Labo abalizwile iqiniso nokho baziqhenya, bayiziwula futhi abanalwazi. Labo abalizwile iqiniso nokho ngokunganaki benza izinqumo ngokushesha noma balichitha bahlushwa ukuzikhukhumeza. Akekho okholwa uJesu ofanele ukuqalekisa noma ahlulele abanye. Kumele nonke nibe nengqondo futhi namukele iqiniso. Mhlawumbe, emva kokuba usuzwile ngendlela yeqiniso futhi wafunda ngezwi lokuphila, ukholwa ukuthi izwi elilodwa kwayizi-10,000 ahambisana nokukholwa kwakho neBhayibheli, ngakho kumele uqhubeke nokufuna kuleli zwi lezi-10,000 kulawa mazwi. Ngisaniluleka ukuba nizithobe, ningazethembi ngokweqile, ningaziphakamisi kakhulu. Ngezinhliziyo zenu eziphethe ukuhlonipha okuncane kakhulu kukaNkulunkulu, niyothola ukukhanya okukhulu. Uma niwahlola ngokuqaphela futhi niwacabange niphindelela la mazwi niyoqonda noma ayilo noma akalona yini iqiniso, noma ayikho noma akasikhona ukuphila. Mhlawumbe, emva kokufunda imisho embalwa, abanye abantu bazokwahlulela la mazwi ngobumpumputhe, bethi, “Lokhu akulutho kunokukhanyiselwa okuthile uMoya oNgcwele,” noma, “Lona uKristu wamanga ozokhohlisa abantu.” Labo abasho izinto ezinje, ababoni ngenxa yokungazi! Niqonda okuncane kakhulu ngomsebenzi nokuhlakanipha kukaNkulunkulu, futhi ngiyaniyala ukuba niqale futhi ekuqaleni! Akufanele nahlulele ngobumpumputhe amazwi akhulunywa nguNkulunkulu ngenxa yokuvela koKristu bamanga ezinsukwini zokugcina, futhi ungabi umuntu ohlambalaza uMoya oNgcwele ngoba wesaba inkohliso. Ngeke lokho kube okudabukisayo okukhulu? Uma emuva kokuhlola okukhulu usakholwa ukuthi lawa mazwi akalona iqiniso, akayona indlela, akakhona ukubonakaliswa kukaNkulunkulu, uyojeziswa ekugcineni, futhi ungabi nezibusiso. Uma ungenakho ukwemukela iqiniso elinje elikhulunywe ngokusobala nokucacile kakhulu, ngakho awufanelwe yini insindiso kaNkulunkulu? Awuyena umuntu ongenayo inhlanhla yokubuyela phambi kwesihlalo sikaNkulunkulu? Ake ukucabanga lokho! Ungagagameli futhi ube namawala, futhi ungakuthathi ukukholwa kuNkulunkulu njengomdlalo. Cabanga ngenxa yesiphetho sakho, ngenxa yamathemba akho, ngenxa yempilo yakho, futhi ungadlali ngawe. Ungawamukela la mazwi?

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 288)

Ngaleso sikhathi, ingxenye yomsebenzi kaJesu yayivumelana neTestamente Elidala, kanye nomthetho kaMose kanye namazwi kaJehova ngeNkathi Yomthetho. Zonke lezi zinto uJesu ayezenza zaziyingxenye yomsebenzi Wakhe. Washumayela kubantu ebafundisa nasemasinagogeni futhi wasebenzisa iziphrofetho zabaprofethi eTestamenteni Elidala ukuze alahle abaFarisi ababemzonda, futhi wasebenzisa nemiBhalo ukuze embule ukungalaleli kwabo bese ebalahla. Ngoba babengakuthandi lokho uJesu ayekwenzile; ikakhulu omningi umsebenzi owawenziwa uJesu wawungavumelani nemithetho esemiBhalweni futhi ngaphezu kwalokho, ayekufundisa kwakungaphezulu kakhulu kwamazwi abo, futhi kungaphezu ngisho nakakhulu kunalokho okwakubikezelwe ngabaprofethi emiBhalweni. Umsebenzi kaJesu wawumayelana nokuhlengwa komuntu kanye nokubethelwa Kwakhe kuphela. Ngakho, sasingekho isidingo sokuba asho amazwi amaningi ukuze anqobe umuntu. Okuningi kwalokho akufundisa umuntu kwakuthathwe emiBhalweni futhi ngisho nomsebenzi Wakhe awuzange udlulele ngale kwemiBhalo, kunalokho Wakwazi ukufeza umsebenzi wokubethelwa. Umsebenzi Wakhe wawungekho mayelana nezwe, noma ukunqoba isintu, kodwa wawumayelana nokuhlenga isintu. Waba njengomnikelo wesono wesintu, futhi akazange abe njengomthombo wezwi esintwini. Akazange enze umsebenzi wabeZizwe, okwakuwumsebenzi wokunqoba isintu, kunalokho wenza umsebenzi wokubethelwa, umsebenzi owawenziwa yilabo ababekholwa ukuthi kunoNkulunkulu. Nakuba umsebenzi Wakhe wenziwa ngaphezu kwesisekelo semiBhalo, wasebenzisa lokho okwakubikezelwe ngabaprofethi abadala ukuze alahle abaFarisi, lokhu kwakwanele ekuqedeni umsebenzi wokubethelwa. Ukuba umsebenzi wanamuhla ubusenziwa ususelwa kulokho okwabikezelwa ngabaprofethi bakudala emiBhalweni, bekuyoba yinto engenakwenzeka ukuninqoba, ngoba iTestamente Elidala alisho lutho ngokungalaleli kwenu nezono zenu maShayina, awukho umlando wezono zenu. Ngakho-ke, ukuba lo msebenzi usekhona eBhayibhelini, beningeke nehlele ngezansi. Kuncane iBhayibheli elisitshela khona ngama-Israyeli, lowo ongakwazi ukuhlukanisa phakathi kowenza okubi noma okuhle noma ukunahlulela. Ake nicabange ukube bekufanele nginahlulele ngokomlando wama-Israyeli—beniyoqhubeka ningilandele njengoba nenza namuhla? Ingabe niyazi ukuthi nilukhuni kangakanani? Uma engekho amazwi akhulunywa phakathi nalesi sigaba, kusho ukuthi umsebenzi wokunqoba ubungeke uphele. Ngenxa yokuthi angizelanga ukuzobethelwa esiphambanweni, kumele ngikhulume amazwi angahlangene neBhayibheli ukuze ninqotshwe. Umsebenzi owenziwa nguJesu wawumane uyisigaba esingaphezulu kweTestamente Elidala; wasetshenziselwa ukuqala inkathi, nokuhola leyo nkathi. Kungani athi, “Angizile ukuzochitha umthetho, kodwa ukuzowugcwalisa”? Nokho emsebenzini wakhe kuningi okwakwehlukile emithethweni eyayilandelwa ngama-Israyeli eTestamente Elidala, ngoba akezanga ukuzolalela umthetho, kodwa ukuwugcwalisa. Indlela yokuwugcwalisa yayihlanganisa izinto eziningi zangempela: Umsebenzi wakhe wawungokoqobo futhi ungowangempela, futhi, ngaphezu kwalokho, wawuphila ngokwengeziwe, futhi wawungekhona ukubambelela emithethweni ngobumpumputhe. Ngabe ama-Israyeli ayengaligcini iSabatha? Lapho uJesu efika akazange aligcine iSabatha, ngoba wathi iNdodana yomuntu yayiyiNkosi yeSabatha, futhi lapho iNkosi yeSabatha ifika, yayizokwenza njengokufisa Kwayo. Wayezele ukugcwalisa imithetho yeTestamente Elidala nokuguqula imithetho. Konke lokhu okwenziwa namuhla kusukela kulokho okungokwamanje, nokho kusesesisekelweni somsebenzi kaJehova ngeNkathi Yomthetho, futhi akweqi ngale kwalo mklamo. Ukuqapha ulimi lwakho nokungaphingi, ngokwesibonelo—ingabe lena akuyona imithetho yeTestamente Elidala? Namuhla, okulindeleke kuwe namuhla akupheleli nje eMiyalweni Eyishumi, kodwa kuqukethe imiyalo nemithetho ephakeme kakhulu kunaleyo eyafika ngaphambili, nokho lokho akusho ukuthi okwafika phambilini sekwachithwa, ngoba isigaba ngasinye somsebenzi kaNkulunkulu senziwa esisekelweni sesigaba esisandulelayo. Ngalokho uJehova akuletha kwa-Israyeli, efuna abantu banikele imihlatshelo, bahloniphe abazali babo, bangakhonzi izithixo, bangashayi noma bathuke abanye, bangaphingi, bangabhemi noma baphuze, bangadli izinto ezizifele noma baphuze igazi: ngabe lokhu akwakhi isisekelo sokwenza kwenu nanamuhla? Yisisekelo senkathi eyedlule esenze ukuba umsebenzi wenziwe kuze kwaba namuhla. Nakuba imithetho yenkathi endala ingasashiwo, nezimfuno ezintsha sezifuniwe kuwe, le mithetho ayiqediwe, futhi kunalokho, iphakanyiselwe esikhundleni esiphezulu ngokwengeziwe. Ukuthi isiqediwe kusho ukuthi inkathi edlule isiphelelwe yisikhathi, kanti kunemiyalelo okufanele uhlale uyihlonipha kuze kube phakade. Imiyalelo yenkathi edlule isivele yenziwe, ivele isiwukuphila komuntu, futhi akukho sidingo sokuphinda imiyalelo yokungabhemi, ukungaphuzi, njalo njalo. Phezu kwalesi sisekelo, imiyalelo emisha iyabekwa ngokuhambelana nezidingo namuhla, ngokuhambisana nesiqu sakho, nangokuhambisana nomsebenzi wanamuhla. Ukumemezela imiyalelo yenkathi entsha akusho ukuqeda imiyalelo yenkathi endala, kodwa ukuyiphakamisa phezu kwalesi sisekelo, ukwenza izenzo zomuntu ziphelele ngokwengeziwe, futhi zihambisane kakhudlwana nokungokoqobo. Uma, namuhla benivunyelwe ukuba nilandele kuphela imiyalelo futhi niphile ngemithetho yeTestamente Elidala, ngendlela efana neyama-Israyeli, futhi ukuba, ngaphezulu, bekumele nize nibambe ngekhanda imithetho eyabekwa nguJehova, bekungeke kwenzeke ukuba niguquke. Uma bekufanele niphile ngaleyo mithetho embalwa enemingcele noma nibambe ngekhanda imithetho engabaleki, imvelo yenu endala ibizohlala igxile ngokujulile, futhi ibingeke ibe khona indlela yokuyisiphula. Ngakho benizogcina senonakele ngokwengeziwe, futhi akekho noyedwa phakathi kwenu obeyolalela. Okusho ukuthi imiyalo elula embalwa noma imithetho engabaleki ngeke ikwazi ukunisiza ukuba nazi izenzo zikaJehova. Nina anifani nama-Israyeli: Ngokulandela imithetho nokubamba ngekhanda imiyalo akwazi ukubona izenzo zikaJehova, nokuzinikela Kuye yedwa, kodwa niyehluleka ukufinyelela kulokhu, futhi imiyalelo embalwa yenkathi yeTestamente Elidala ayigcini nje ngokunenza ningakwazi ukunikela ngenhliziyo yenu, noma ngokunivikela kodwa kunalokho izonenza ninganaki futhi inehlisele eHayidesi. Ngenxa yokuthi umsebenzi Wami ungumsebenzi wokunqoba, futhi ubhekiswe ekungalalelini nasemvelweni yenu endala. Amazwi anomusa kaJehova noJesu akude namazwi anzima okwahlulela namuhla. Ngaphandle kwamazwi aqine kanjalo, bekungeke kwenzeke ukuba kunqotshwe nina “bochwepheshe”, ababe ngabangalaleli iminyaka eyizinkulungwane. Imithetho yeTestamente Elidala kudala yaphelelwa ngamandla kinina futhi ukwahlulelwa kwanamuhla kuyidlula kude imithetho yakudala. Into enifanele kakhulu ukwahlulelwa hhayi imingcele engatheni yemithetho, ngoba nina anisona isintu sasekuqaleni, kodwa niyisintu esesonakele iminyaka eyizinkulungwane. Okumele umuntu afinyelele kukho manje kungokuhambisana nesimo sangempela somuntu namuhla, ngokuhambisana nezinga nesiqu sangempela somuntu wanamuhla futhi akudingi ukuba ulandele imfundiso. Lokhu kwenzelwa ukuthi kutholakale izinguquko emvelweni yakho endala, futhi ukuze ukwazi ukuyibeka eceleni imibono yakho.

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 289)

Umlando uhlala uqhubekela phambili nomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uhlala uqhubekela phambili. Ukuze uhlelo lweminyaka eziyinkulungwane eziyisithupha lufinyelele esiphethweni, kumele luhlale luqhubeka luya phambili. Usuku nosuku, kufanele enze umsebenzi omusha, unyaka nonyaka kumele enze umsebenzi omusha; kumele aqale izindlela ezintsha, kumele aqale izinkathi ezintsha, aqale umsebenzi omusha nomkhulu, futhi kanye nalokhu alethe amagama amasha nomsebenzi omusha. Ukusuka emzuzwini kuya emzuzwini, uMoya kaNkulunkulu wenza umsebenzi omusha, ungabambeleli ezindleleni nasemithethweni emidala. Futhi umsebenzi Wakhe awukaze ume, kodwa uyenzeka ngomzuzu nomzuzu owedlulayo. Uma uthi umsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele awuguquki, pho kungani uJehova acela abapristi ukuthi bemsebenzele ethempelini, kodwa uJesu akazange angene ethempelini—noma ngabe, lapho efika, abantu baphinde bathi ungumpristi omkhulu, futhi wayengowendlu kaDavide futhi nguMpristi omkhulu neNkosi enkulu? Futhi yini enganikelanga imihlatshelo? Ukungena ethempelini noma ukungangeni ethempelini—lokhu akuyiwo umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uqobo Lwakhe? Ukuba, njengoba umuntu ecabanga, uJesu uzophinda afike futhi, ezinsukwini zokugcina, esabizwa ngoJesu, futhi aqhubeke nokwehla ngefu elimhlophe, ehlela phezu kwabantu esemfanikisweni kaJesu: ingabe lokho ngeke kube wukuphindwa komsebenzi Wakhe? Ingabe uMoya oNgcwele uyakwzi ukunamathela kokudala? Konke umuntu akukholwayo yimicabango, futhi konke umuntu akuqondayo ngokuhambisana nomqondo osobala, kanye nokucabanga kwakhe; kuphambene nezimiso zomsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele, futhi akuhambisani nezinhloso zikaNkulunkulu. UNkulunkulu ubengeke asebenze ngaleyo ndlela; uNkulunkulu akasona neze isiphukuphuku nesiwula, futhi umsebenzi Wakhe awulula ngendlela oyicabangayo. Ngokwakho konke okwenziwa futhi okucatshangwa umuntu, uJesu uyofika ngefu ehlele phakathi kwenu. Niyombona, okuyothi, egibele ifu, anitshele ukuthi unguJesu. Futhi niyobona amanxeba ezipikili ezandleni Zakhe, futhi niyomazi njengoJesu. Uyobuye anisindise futhi, aphinde abe nguNkulunkulu wenu onamandla. Uyonisindisa, aniqambe igama elisha, futhi anike umuntu ngamunye kinina itshe elimhlophe, okuyothi ngemva kwalokho nivunyelwe ukuba ningene embusweni wezulu futhi namukelwe epharadesi. Ingabe izinkolelo ezinjalo aziyona imicabango yomuntu? Ingabe uNkulunkulu usebenza ngokwalokho okucatshangwa ngabantu noma usebenza ngokuphambene nalokho okucatshangwa umuntu? Ingabe konke okucatshangwa ngumuntu akuveli kuSathane? Ingabe bonke abantu abonakalisiwe uSathane? Uma uNkulunkulu wayenza umsebenzi Wakhe ngendlela yokucabanga komuntu, ingabe angeke abe nguSathane? Ingabe ngeke afane nezidalwa Zakhe? Njengoba nezidalwa sezonakaliswe uSathane kangangokuthi umuntu usephenduke umzimba kaSathane, uma uNkulunkulu ubezosebenza ngokwezinto zikaSathane ingabe ubengeke yini abe nokusebenzisana noSathane? Umuntu angawuqonda kanjani umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu? Ngakho, uNkulunkulu ubengeke asebenze ngokwalokho umuntu akucabangayo. Kunalabo abathi uNkulunkulu uqobo Lwakhe wathi uyofika ngefu. Kuyiqiniso ukuthi uNkulunkulu uqobo Lwakhe washo njalo, kodwa ingabe uyazi ukuthi akekho ongaqonda izimfihlakalo Zakhe? Awazi ukuthi akukho muntu ongachaza amazwi kaNkulunkulu? Uqinisekile ngokuthi ukhanyiselwe futhi wakhanyiswa nguMoya oNgcwele? Nakanjani kwakungekhona ukuthi uMoya oNgcwele ukubonise ngendlela eqonde kangaka? Ingabe kwakunguMoya oNgcwele owakuyalela, noma waholelwa yimicabango yakho ekuthini ucabange kanjalo? Wathi, “Lokhu kwashiwo uNkulunkulu uqobo Lwakhe.” Kodwa asikwazi ukusebenzisa imibono nemiqondo yethu ukuze silinganise amazwi kaNkulunkulu. Ngokwamazwi akhulunywa ngu-Isaya, ungawachaza amazwi akhe ngokukhulu ukuqiniseka? Ingabe uyalokotha ukuwachaza amazwi akhe? Njengoba ungalokothi nokuwachaza amazwi ka-Isaya, pho kungani ulokhu ulokotha ukuchaza amazwi kaJesu? Ubani ophakeme kakhulu, uJesu noma u-Isaya? Njengoba impendulo inguJesu, kungani uzama ukuchaza amazwi akhulunywe uJesu? Ingabe uNkulunkulu angakutshela ngomsebenzi Wakhe singakafiki isikhathi? Asikho nesisodwa isidalwa esingazi, ngisho nezithunywa ezulwini ngisho neNdodana yomuntu, ngakho wena ungazi kanjani? Umuntu untula kakhulu. Okubalulekile kini manje ukwazi izigaba ezintathu zomsebenzi. Kusukela emsebenzini kaJehova kuya kokaJesu, futhi kusukela emsebenzini kaJesu kuya kulowo wesigaba samanje, lezi zigaba ezintathu zihlanganisa ngentambo enganqamuki bonke ububanzi bokuphatha kukaNkulunkulu futhi yonke iyimisebenzi eyenziwa nguMoya owodwa. Kusukela ekudalweni komhlaba, uNkulunkulu yilokhu esebenza ephatha isintu. UyiSiqalo neSiphetho, futhi uyiLowo oqala inkathi naLowo ophetha inkathi. Izigaba ezintathu zomsebenzi, ezinkathini ezehlukene nasezindaweni ezehlukene, ngaphandle kwephutha zingumsebenzi woMoya owodwa. Bonke labo abahlukanisa lezi zigaba baphikisa uNkulunkulu. Manje, kumele uqonde ukuthi wonke umsebenzi kusukela esigabeni sokuqala kuze kube namuhla uwumsebenzi kaNkulunkulu oyedwa, umsebenzi woMoya owodwa. Ngalokhu akukho kungabaza.

Kucashunwe embhalweni othi “Umbono Womsebenzi KaNkulunkulu (3)” encwadini ethi Izwi Livela Lisenyameni

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 290)

Njengoba umuntu ekholwa kuNkulunkulu, kumele alandele eduze ezinyathelweni zikaNkulunkulu, isinyathelo nesinyathelo; kumele “alandele iMvana noma ngabe iya kuphi.” Yilaba bantu kuphela abafuna indlela yeqiniso, yibo abazi umsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele. Abantu abalandela njengezigqila amagama nezimfundiso yilabo abakhishiwe ngumsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele. Esikhathini ngasinye, uNkulunkulu uzoqala umsebenzi omusha, futhi esikhathini ngasinye, kuzoba nesiqalo esisha kubantu. Uma umuntu elandela iqiniso lokuthi “uJehova nguNkulunkulu” futhi “uJesu nguKristu,” okungamaqiniso asebenza kuphela enkathini eyodwa, umuntu-ke akasoze ahambisana nomsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele, futhi uyohlala engakwazi ukuzuza umsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele. Noma ngabe uNkulunkulu usebenza kanjani, umuntu ulandela ngaphandle kokungabaza, futhi ulandela eduze. Ngale ndlela, umuntu ubengasuswa kanjani uMoya ONgcwele? Noma ngabe wenzani uNkulunkulu, inqobo uma umuntu enesiqiniseko sokuthi umsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele, futhi ehambisana nomsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele ngaphandle kokunqikaza, futhi ezama ukuhlangabezana nezidingo zikaNkulunkulu, pho angajeziswa kanjani? Umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu awukaze ume, izinyathelo zakhe azikaze zime, futhi ngaphambi kokuqeda umsebenzi Wakhe wokuphatha, ubelokhu ematasa, futhi akami. Kodwa umuntu wehlukile: Njengoba ethole ingxenyana yomsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele, uwuphatha sengathi awusoze waguquka; esethole ulwazi oluncane, akaqhubekeli phambili ukuze alandele ezinyathelweni zomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu omusha; esebone ingxenyana yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, ubheka uNkulunkulu ngokushesha njengesithombe esibazwe ngokhuni, futhi ukholwa ukuthi uNkulunkulu uyohlala eyilesi simo asibona phambi kwakhe, ukuthi sasinje kudala futhi siyoba njalo nangesikhathi esizayo; esethole ulwazi olungatheni, umuntu uziqhenya kangangoba uyazikhohlwa futhi aqale ukumemezela ngesimo nobukhona bukaNkulunkulu okungekho nhlobo; futhi eseqinisekile ngesigaba esisodwa somsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele, noma ngabe wuhlobo luni lomuntu olumemezela umsebenzi omusha kaNkulunkulu, umuntu akawamukeli. Laba ngabantu abangeke bakwazi ukwamukela umsebenzi omusha kaMoya oNgcwele; futhi balukhuni; futhi abakwazi ukwamukela izinto ezintsha. Abantu balolo hlobo bakholwa kuNkulunkulu kodwa abamamukeli uNkulunkulu. Umuntu ukholwa ukuthi ama-Israyeli ayenephutha “ngokukholwa kuJehova bese engakholwa kuJesu,” kodwa abantu abaningi babamba iqhaza kulokhu “ukukholwa kuJehova bachithe uJesu” futhi “balangazela ukubuya kukaMesiya, kodwa baphikisa uMesiya obizwa ngokuthi uJesu.” Akumangazi-ke ukuthi abantu basaphila ngaphansi kukaSathane emuva kokwamukela isigaba esisodwa somsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele, futhi abakazitholi izibusiso zikaNkulunkulu. Lokhu akudalwa ukuhlubuka komuntu? AmaKristu emhlabeni jikelele angahambisananga nomsebenzi omusha wanamuhla abambelele enkolweni yokuthi asenhlanhleni, ukuthi uNkulunkulu uzofeza izifiso zabo ngazinye. Nokho abakwazi ukusho baqiniseke ukuthi kungani uNkulunkulu ezobayisa ezulwini lesithathu, futhi abanasiqiniseko ngokuthi uJesu uzobalanda egibele ifu elimhlophe, futhi bengesho nakancane ngokuqiniseka ukuthi uJesu uzofika ngempela na egibele phezu kwefu elimhlophe ngalolo suku abalucabangayo. Bonke balangazele, futhi badidekile; nabo uqobo abazi nokuthi ngabe uNkulunkulu uzothatha omunye nomunye wabo, ingcosane yabantu abehlukene, bakuwo wonke amahlelo. Umsebenzi owenziwa uNkulunkulu manje, inkathi yamanje, intando kaNkulunkulu - abaqondi kutho kulokhu, futhi akukho okunye abangakwenza ngaphandle kokubala izinsuku ngeminwe yabo. Yilabo kuphela abalandela ezinyathelweni zeMvana kuze kube sekugcineni abayokwazi ukuthola izibusiso zokugcina, kanti labo bantu “abahlakaniphile,” abangakwazi ukulandela kuze kube sekugcineni kepha bekholwa ukuthi bakuzuze konke, ngeke bakwazi ukubona ukuvela kukaNkulunkulu. Bonke bakholwa ukuthi bangabantu abakhaliphe kakhulu emhlabeni, futhi bayakunqamula ukuqhubeka kokuthuthukisa umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu ngaphandle kwesizathu, futhi kubukeka sengathi bakholwa ngokugcwele ukuthi uNkulunkulu uzobayisa ezulwini, lapho “abathembeke kuNkulunkulu kakhulu, abalandela uNkulunkulu, abalandela amazwi kaNkulunkulu.” Noma “bethembeke ngokweqile” amazwini akhulunywe uNkulunkulu, amazwi abo nezenzo kusabonakala kunyanyisa kakhulu ngoba kuphikisana nomsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele, futhi benza inkohliso nobubi. Labo abangalandeli kuze kube sekugcineni, abasilelayo emsebenzini kaMoya oNgcwele, futhi ababambelela emsebenzini omdala abahlulekanga nje ukugcwalisa ukwethembeka kuNkulunkulu kuphela, kodwa, baphenduke labo abaphikisana noNkulunkulu, baba yilabo abachitha isikhathi esisha, futhi abazojeziswa. Ngabe bakhona abadabukisa ngaphezu kwabo? Abaningi baze bakholwe ukuthi labo abachitha umthetho omdala futhi bamukele umsebenzi omusha abananembeza. Laba bantu, abakhuluma ngonembeza kuphela, futhi bengawazi umsebenzi kaMoya oNgcwele, bazogcina sebenqanyulelwe amathuba okuthuthuka ngobabo onembeza. Umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu awulandeli imfundiso, futhi yize kungumsebenzi Wakhe uqobo, uNkulunkulu akabambeleli kuwo. Lokho okumele kuphikwe kuyaphikwa, lokho okumele kunqunywe kuyanqunywa. Kepha umuntu uzenza isitha sikaNkulunkulu ngokubambelela engxenyeni encane yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu wokuphatha. Akukhona ukuxaka komuntu lokhu? Akukhona ukungazi komuntu lokhu? Uma abantu belokhu benovalo futhi beqaphele kakhulu ngenxa yokwesaba ukungazitholi izibusiso zikaNkulunkulu, yilapho behluleka khona ukuthola izibusiso ezinkulu, kanye nokuthola isibusiso sokugcina. Labo bantu abalandela umthetho njengezigqila bonke bakhombisa ukwethembeka okukhulu emthethweni, futhi abaveza lokho kwethembeka emthethweni, yibo abangabahlubuki abaphikisana noNkulunkulu. Ngoba manje sekuyiNkathi Yombuso hhayi iNkathi yoMthetho, futhi umsebenzi wanamuhla nomsebenzi wesikhathi esedlule ngeke kufaniswe, futhi umsebenzi wesikhathi esedlule ungeqhathaniswe nomsebenzi wanamuhla. Umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu sewuguqukile, futhi ukwenza komuntu nakho sekuguqukile; akusewona owokubambelela emthethweni noma ukuthwala isiphambano. Ngakho, ukwethembeka kwabantu emthethweni nasesiphambanweni akuzukuthola ukuvunywa uNkulunkulu.

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 291)

Inhloso yokunqoba wena namhlanje ukuthi ubone ukuthi uNkulunkulu unguNkulunkulu wakho, nomunye uNkulunkulu, futhi okubaluleke nakakhulu, uNkulunkulu wabo bonke abamthandayo, uNkulunkulu wayo yonke indalo. UnguNkulunkulu wama-Israyeli noNkulunkulu wabantu baseGibhithe. UnguNkulunkulu wamaNgisi noNkulunkulu wamaMelika. Akayena nje uNkulunkulu ka-Adamu no-Eva, kodwa unguNkulunkulu wayo yonke inzalo ka-Adamu no-Eva. UnguNkulunkulu wakho konke okusezulwini nokusemhlabeni. Imindeni yama-Israyeli nayo yonke imindeni yabeZizwe yayisezandleni zikaNkulunkulu oyedwa. Akasebenzanga nje kwa-Israyeli kuphela izinkulungwane eziningi zeminyaka futhi wazalelwa eJudiya, kodwa namuhla wehlele eShayina, lena indawo udrako omkhulu obomvu azithukuse kuyo. Uma ukuzalelwa eJudiya kumenza iNkosi yamaJuda, khona-ke ingabe ukwehlela Kwakhe phakathi kwenu namuhla akumenzi yini uNkulunkulu wenu? Wahola ama-Israyeli futhi wazalelwa eJudiya, futhi waphinde wazalelwa ezweni labeZizwe. Ingabe umsebenzi Wakhe akusona sonke isintu asidala? Ingabe ama-Israyeli uwathanda izikhathi eziyikhulu azonde abeZizwe izikhathi eziyinkulungwane? Ingabe lowo umbono wenu? Yinina eningamqapheli uNkulunkulu; akukhona ukuthi uNkulunkulu akakaze abe nguNkulunkulu wenu. Yinina enenqaba uNkulunkulu; akukhona ukuthi uNkulunkulu akafuni ukuba uNkulunkulu wenu. Ubani phakathi kwezidalwa ongekho ezandleni zikaSomandla? Ekunqobeni nina namuhla, ingabe inhloso akukhona ukunenza nibone ukuthi uNkulunkulu akayilutho olunye ngaphandle kokuba nguNkulunkulu wenu? Uma nisathi uNkulunkulu unguNkulunkulu wama-Israyeli kuphela, futhi ningayeki ukuthi indlu kaDavide kwa-Israyeli iyilapho kwazalelwa khona uNkulunkulu nokuthi asikho esinye isizwe ngaphandle kwama-Israyeli “ezingakhiqiza” uNkulunkulu, ingasaphathwa eyokuthi imindeni yabeZizwe ikwazi ukwamukela umsebenzi kaJehova—uma nisacabanga ngale ndlela, khona-ke ingabe lokho akunenzi yini nibe yizijaka? Ningalokhu nigqoloze ku-Israyeli. UNkulunkulu ukhona khona lapha phakathi kwenu namhlanje. Ningalokhu nibheka ezulwini. Yekani ukukhomba uNkulunkulu wenu ezulwini! UNkulunkulu uze phakathi kwenu, ngakho angaba kanjani sezulwini? Anikakholelwa isikhathi eside kakhulu kuNkulunkulu, kodwa ninemibono eminingi Ngaye, ngezinga lokuthi nize nicabange ukuthi uNkulunkulu wama-Israyeli uyonibonisa “umusa” ekubeni khona Kwakhe. Anilokothi nizihluphe ngokucabanga ngendlela eningabona ngayo ubuntu bukaNkulunkulu, ngenxa yonya eninalo. Futhi anikaze nicabange ngendlela uNkulunkulu angehlela ngayo ezweni labeZizwe. Ufuna ukwehlela eNtabeni yaseSinayi noma eNtabeni Yeminqumo avele kuma-Israyeli. Ingabe abeZizwe (okusho ukuthi, abantu bangaphandle kwakwa-Israyeli) abazona izisulu zenzondo Yakhe? Angasebenza kanjani ngokoqobo phakathi kwabo? Konke lokhu imibono engene yajula enibe nayo iminyaka eminingi. Injongo yokuninqoba namuhla ukuqeda le mibono yenu. Nimbonile uNkulunkulu evela ngokoqobo phakathi kwenu—hhayi eNtabeni yaseSinayi noma eNtabeni Yeminqumo, kodwa phakathi kwabantu angakaze abahole phambilini. Ngemva kokuba uNkulunkulu enze izigaba ezimbili zomsebenzi Wakhe kwa-Israyeli, ama-Israyeli kanye nabo bonke abeZizwe bawubamba lo mbono: Nakuba kuyiqiniso ukuthi uNkulunkulu wadala zonke izinto, uzimisele ukuba nguNkulunkulu wama-Israyeli kuphela, hhayi uNkulunkulu wabeZizwe. Ama-Israyeli akholelwa kulokhu okulandelayo: UNkulunkulu angaba nguNkulunkulu wethu kuphela, hhayi uNkulunkulu wabeZizwe, futhi ngenxa yokuthi animhloniphi uJehova, uJehova—uNkulunkulu wethu—uyanizonda. Lawo maJuda akukholelwa nakakhulu lokhu: INkosi uJesu yathatha isithombe sethu njengabantu futhi inguNkulunkulu onophawu lwabantu abangamaJuda. UNkulunkulu usebenza phakathi kwethu. Umfanekiso kaNkulunkulu nowethu kuyafana; umfanekiso wethu usondele kokaNkulunkulu. INkosi uJesu iyiNkosi yethu njengamaJuda; abeZizwe akufanele bamukele insindiso enkulu kanjalo. INkosi uJesu iwumnikelo wesono kithi maJuda. Kwakungenxa yalezi zigaba ezimbili zomsebenzi kuphela lapho ama-Israyeli kanye namaJuda bakha imibono eminingi kangaka. Bonke ngothi lwabo, bathi uNkulunkulu ungowabo, abakuvumi ukuthi uNkulunkulu uphinde abe oweZizwe. Ngale ndlela, uNkulunkulu akalutho ezinhliziyweni zabeZizwe. Lokhu kungenxa yokuthi bonke bakholelwa ukuthi uNkulunkulu akafuni ukuba nguNkulunkulu wabezizwe nokuthi uthanda ama-Israyeli kuphela—uyawathanda amaJuda, kodwa ikakhulukazi labo abamlandelayo. Ingabe anazi ukuthi umsebenzi owenziwa uJehova noJesu wawungowokuthi sonke isintu sisinde? Ingabe manje niyabona ukuthi uNkulunkulu unguNkulunkulu wenu nonke eningaphandle kuka-Israyeli? Akukho yini uNkulunkulu lapha phakathi kwenu namuhla? Lokhu akunakuba yiphupho, akunjalo? Ingabe uyafuna ukubhekana nesimo esingokoqobo? Anilokothi nikukholelwe noma nicabange ngakho. Kungakhathaliseki ukuthi ukubona kanjani, ingabe uNkulunkulu akekho phakathi kwenu? Ingabe nisesaba ukukholelwa kula mazwi? Kusukela namhlanje, ingabe bonke ababona abantu abanqotshiwe nalabo abafuna ukuba abalandeli bakaNkulunkulu abantu abakhethile? Ingabe nonke nina eningabalandeli namuhla, nikhethwe kubantu abangaphandle kuka-Israyeli? Ingabe igama lenu alifani nelama-Israyeli? Ingabe akukhona konke lokhu okufanele nikuqaphele? Ingabe lona akuwona umgomo womsebenzi wokuninqoba? Njengoba ungambona uNkulunkulu, khona-ke uyoba nguNkulunkulu wakho kuze kube phakade kusukela ekuqaleni kuze kube sesikhathini esizayo. Ngeke akulaxaze, njengoba nonke nizimisele ukumlandela nokuba indalo Yakhe eqotho Kuye, nemlalelayo.

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 292)

Ungakwazi ukuthola ulwazi olusha kuphela uma ubeka eceleni imibono yakho emidala, kepha ulwazi oludala alusho ngempela imibono emidala. “Imibono” ikhuluma ngezinto ezicatshangwa ngumuntu ngamehlo engqondo ezingavumelani neqiniso. Uma ulwazi oludala bese luvele lusemuva ngenkathi endala, futhi lwavimba umuntu ukuthi angene emsebenzini omusha, ngakho ulwazi olunjalo nalo luwumbono. Uma umuntu engakwazi ukulubuka ngendlela efanele lolo lwazi, futhi akwazi ukufinyelela ekwazini uNkulunkulu ngezindlela eziningi ezihlukene, ulwazi oludala luphenduka usizo kumuntu, futhi luphenduka isisekelo umuntu angena ngaso enkathini entsha. Isifundo sokwazi uNkulunkulu sidinga wena ukuthi uqondisise imiyalelo eminingi: ungena kanjani endleleni yokwazi uNkulunkulu, imaphi amaqiniso okufanele uwaqonde ukuze wazi uNkulunkulu, nendlela yokulahla imibono nemvelo yakho endala ukuze uthobele wonke amalungiselelo omsebenzi omusha kaNkulunkulu. Uma usebenzisa lezi zimiso njengesisekelo sokungena esifundweni sokwazi uNkulunkulu, ulwazi lwakho luyoya lujula. Uma unolwazi olucacile ngezigaba ezintathu—okusho ukuthi, uhlelo lokuphatha lukaNkulunkulu selulonke—futhi uma ungahlanganisa ngokuqhathanisa izigaba ezimbili zangaphambilini zomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu nesigaba samanje, futhi ukwazi ukubona ukuthi umsebenzi owenziwe nguNkulunkulu oyedwa, uyoba nesisekelo esiqinile kakhulu. Izigaba ezintathu zomsebenzi zenziwa uNkulunkulu oyedwa; lokhu umbono omkhulu kunayo yonke, futhi iyona kuphela indlela yokwazi uNkulunkulu. Izigaba ezintathu zomsebenzi bezingenziwa uNkulunkulu Uqobo Lwakhe, futhi akekho umuntu ongamenzela lo msebenzi—okusho ukuthi uNkulunkulu Uqobo Lwakhe kuphela obengenza umsebenzi Wakhe siqu kusukela ekuqaleni kuze kube manje. Nakuba izigaba ezintathu zomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu zenziwe ezinkathini nasezindaweni ezehlukene, futhi nakuba umsebenzi wazo ngasinye uhlukile, wonke umsebenzi wenziwe nguNkulunkulu oyedwa. Emibonweni iyonke, lona umbono omkhulu kunayo yonke umuntu okufanele ayazi, futhi uma uqondwa ngokuphelele umuntu, ngakho uyokwazi ukuma aqine. Namuhla, inkinga enkulu kakhulu izinkolo namahlelo ezibhekene nayo ukungawazi umsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele, futhi awakwazi ukuhlukanisa phakathi komsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele nomsebenzi okungewona owoMoya oNgcwele—ngakho azikwazi ukubona noma lesi sigaba somsebenzi, njengalezi zigaba ezimbili zomsebenzi ezigcinile, naso senziwa nguNkulunkulu uJehova. Nakuba abantu belandela uNkulunkulu, abaningi abakwazi ukubona noma yindlela elungile yini. Umuntu uyakhathazeka ngokuthi le ndlela yindlela eholwa nguNkulunkulu Ngokwakhe mathupha, nokuthi ukuthatha kwesimo sesintu kukaNkulunkulu kuyiqiniso, futhi abantu abaningi namanje abakwazi ukwehlukanisa uma sekuza ezintweni ezinjalo. Labo abalandela uNkulunkulu abakwazi ukucacisa indlela, ngakho imilayezo ekhulunywayo inomphumela ongaphelele phakathi kwala bantu, futhi ayikwazi ukusebenza ngokuphelele, ngakho lokhu kuyakuthikameza ukungena empilweni kwabantu abanjalo. Uma umuntu engabona ezigabeni ezintathu zomsebenzi ukuthi zenziwa nguNkulunkulu Uqobo ezikhathini ezehlukene, ezindaweni ezehlukene, kanye nakubantu abahlukene, uma bengabona ukuthi nakuba umsebenzi uhlukile, wonke wenziwa uNkulunkulu oyedwa, nokuthi njengoba kuwumsebenzi owenziwa uNkulunkulu oyedwa, khona-ke kufanele ukuthi ulungile, futhi awunawo amaphutha, nokuthi noma ungavumelani nemibono yabantu, akukho ukungabaza ukuthi umsebenzi waNkulunkulu oyedwa—uma umuntu engasho ngokuqiniseka ukuthi ngumsebenzi kaNkulunkulu oyedwa, ngakho imibono yomuntu izomane iphenduke ubala nje, engafanelekile ngisho ukuthi ungakhuluma ngakho. Ngenxa yokuthi imibono yomuntu ayicacanga, futhi umuntu wazi uJehova njengoNkulunkulu, noJesu njengeNkosi, futhi unemiqondo emibili mayelana noNkulunkulu othathe isimo sesintu wanamhlanje, abantu abaningi baqhubeka nokuzinikela emsebenzini kaJehova noJesu, futhi bakhungathwe imibono ngomsebenzi wanamhlanje, abantu abaningi bahlale bengabaza, futhi abawuthathi umsebenzi wanamhlanje ngokuthi ubalulekile. Umuntu akanayo imibono mayelana nezigaba ezimbili zokugcina zomsebenzi, ezazingabonakali. Yingoba umuntu akaliqondi iqiniso mayelana nezigaba ezimbili zokugcina zomsebenzi, futhi akazange azibonele zona mathupha. Yingoba azibonakali yingakho umuntu ezicabangela njengoba ethanda; akukhathaliseki ukuthi uvezani, awekho amaqiniso azifakazelayo, futhi akekho ozozilungisa. Umuntu unikezela ngokungenamkhawulo ukuzibonela kwakhe ngokwemvelo engakhathaleli lutho futhi evumela ukucabanga ngamehlo engqondo kwakhe kukhululeke, ngoba akunamaqiniso ongaqinisekisa ngawo, ngakho ukucabanga komuntu kuphenduka “iqiniso,” akukhathaliseki noma bukhona yini ubufakazi kukhona. Ngakho umuntu ukholelwa kuNkulunkulu wakhe emqondweni wakhe, futhi angamfuni uNkulunkulu weqiniso. Uma umuntu oyedwa enenkolelo ethize, ngakho phakathi kwabantu abalikhulu abanezinkolelo kunezinhlobo eziyikhulu zezinkolelo. Umuntu unalezo zinkolelo ngoba akaliboni iqiniso lomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, ngoba usawuzwe ngezindlebe zakhe kuphela futhi akakawuboni ngamehlo akhe. Umuntu usezwe izinganekwane nezindaba kodwa—akavamisile ukuzwa ulwazi ngamaqiniso omsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Ngalokho kungenxa yemibono yabo ukuthi abantu osekuphele unyaka owodwa nje bengamakholwa, ukuthi bakholwe nguNkulunkulu, lokhu kuyiqiniso futhi nakulabo asebekholwe kuNkulunkulu iminyaka yabo yonke. Labo abangawaboni amaqiniso abasoze bakwazi ukuphunyuka okholweni lapho benemibono ngoNkulunkulu. Umuntu ucabanga ukuthi usezikhululile ezibophweni zemibono yakhe emidala, futhi usengene endaweni entsha. Umuntu akazi ukuthi ulwazi lwalabo abangabuboni ubuso beqiniso bukaNkulunkulu luyimibono nenzwabethi nje kuphela? Umuntu ucabanga ukuthi imibono yakhe ilungile, futhi ayinaphutha, futhi ucabanga ukuthi le mibono ivela kuNkulunkulu. Namhlanje, lapho umuntu ebona umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, udedela imibono eseyakheleke eminyakeni eminingi. Imicabango yokubuka ngomqondo kanye namacebo akudala aphenduka abayisithiyo emsebenzini wale sigaba, futhi kwaba lukhuni kumuntu ukuthi ashiye imibono enjalo futhi aphikise amacebo anjalo. Imibono ngalo msebenzi ohambisa ngesinyathelo nesinyathelo sabaningi balabo abakade belandela uNkulunkulu kuze kube namuhla seyiye ngokunyukela yabanzima kakhulu futhi laba bantu kancane kancane sebakhe ubutha obunenkani noNkulunkulu othathe isimo somuntu. Isisusa sale nzondo sisemibonweni nasemicabangweni yomuntu. Imibono nemicabango yomuntu iphenduke isitha somsebenzi wanamuhla, umsebenzi ophambene nemibono yomuntu. Lokhu kwenzeke ngenxa kanye yokuthi amaqiniso awamvumeli umuntu ukuthi akhulule ukubuka kwakhe ngamehlo engqondo, futhi, ngaphezu kwalokho, akulula ukuthi aphikiswe ngumuntu, futhi nemibono nokubona ngamehlo engqondo komuntu, akuvumeli ukubakhona kwamaqiniso, phezu kwalokho, ngoba umuntu akacabangi ngokulunga nokunemba kwamaqiniso, futhi ngokuzicabangela yedwa umane adedele imibono yakhe futhi asebenzise ukucabanga kwakhe. Lokhu kungathiwa nje kuphela iphutha lemibono yomuntu, futhi ngeke kuthiwe iphutha lomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Umuntu angacabanga noma yini ayithandayo, kodwa akakwazi ukuphikisa ngokukhululeka nanoma isiphi isigaba somsebenzi kaNkulunkulu noma ucezu lwaso; ukubakhona komsebenzi kaNkulunkulu akunakoniwa ngumuntu. Ungakhulula ukucabanga kwakho ngamehlo engqondo, futhi ungaqoqa ndawonye izindaba ezinhle ngoJehova noJesu, kodwa awukwazi ukuphikisa iqiniso nganoma isiphi isigaba somsebenzi kaJehova noJesu ngasinye; lokhu isimiso, futhi njalo kuyisimemezelo sokuphatha, futhi kufanele niqonde ukubaluleka kwalezi zindaba. Umuntu ukholwa ukuthi le sigaba somsebenzi asihambisani nemibono yomuntu, futhi nokuthi lokhu akunjalo mayelana nezigaba zomsebenzi ezimbili ezingaphambilini. Ekubukeni kwakhe ngamehlo engqondo, umuntu ukholwa ukuthi umsebenzi wezigaba ezimbili zangaphambilini ngokuqinisekile awufani nomsebenzi wanamhlanje—kodwa wake wacabanga ukuthi imiyalelo yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu zonke ziyafana, ukuthi umsebenzi Wakhe ungobonakalayo njalo, nokuthi, akukhathali inkathi, kuyohlala kukhona inkindlane yabantu abamelana futhi baphikise iqiniso lomsebenzi Wakhe? Bonke labo namuhla abamelana futhi baphikise le sigaba somsebenzi akungabazeki ukuthi babeyophikisana noNkulunkulu ezikhathini zakudala, ngoba abantu abanjalo bayohlala beyizitha zikaNkulunkulu. Abantu abazi iqiniso ngomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu bazobona izigaba ezintathu zomsebenzi njengomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu oyedwa, futhi bazoshiya phansi imibono yabo. Laba ngabantu abamaziyo uNkulunkulu, futhi abantu abanjalo yilabo abalandela uNkulunkulu ngeqiniso. Uma ukuphatha kwaNkulunkulu sekukonke sekusondela ekupheleni, uNkulunkulu uzohlela zonke izinto ngohlobo lwazo. Umuntu wenziwa izandla zoMdali, futhi ekugcineni kufanele Abuyisele umuntu ngaphansi kombuso Wakhe; lesi isiphetho sezigaba ezintathu zomsebenzi. Isigaba somsebenzi ezinsukwini zokugcina, nezigaba ezimbili ezingaphambilini kwa-Israyeli naseJudiya, ziwuhlelo lokuphatha lukaNkulunkulu emhlabeni jikelele. Akekho ongakuphika lokho, futhi kuyiqiniso lomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Nakuba abantu abakawuboni noma bazizwele okuningi ngalo msebenzi, amaqiniso aselokhu engamaqiniso, futhi lokhu kungephikiswe nanoma imuphi umuntu. Abantu abakholwa kuNkulunkulu emazweni wonke emhlabeni jikelele bonke bazokwemukela izigaba ezintathu zomsebenzi. Uma wazi isigaba esithile somsebenzi, futhi ungaziqondi lezi ezinye izigaba ezimbili, ungaqondi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu ezikhathini ezedlule, ngakho awukwazi ukukhuluma iqiniso lonke lohlelo lokuphatha lukaNkulunkulu, futhi ulwazi lwakho ngoNkulunkulu lunohlangothi olulodwa, ngoba okholweni lwakho kuNkulunkulu Awumazi, noma Awumqondi, ngakho awufanele ukufakazela uNkulunkulu. Akukhathaliseki ukuthi ulwazi lwakho lwamanje lwalezi zinto lujulile noma lukha phezulu, ekugcineni, kufanele nibe nolwazi, futhi nikholiseke ngokucophelela, futhi bonke abantu bayowubona umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu usuwonke futhi bathobe ngaphansi kokubusa kukaNkulunkulu. Ekupheleni kwalo msebenzi, zonke izinkolo ziyohlangana, zonke izidalwa ziyobuyela ngaphansi kombuso woMdali, zonke izidalwa ziyokhonza uNkulunkulu oyedwa oyiqiniso, futhi zonke izinkolo ezimbi ziyophela, futhi zingaphinde zivele.

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 293)

Ukuze kuqondwe inhloso yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, umphumela okufanele umuntu afinyelele kuwo, kanye nentando kaNkulunkulu ngomuntu, yilokhu okufanele wonke umuntu olandela uNkulunkulu afinyelele kukho. Manje into abantu bonke abayiswele ukwazi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Umuntu akazi futhi akaqondi ukuthi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu kumuntu uyini empeleni, umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uwonke, kanye nentando kaNkulunkulu kusukela ekudalweni komhlaba. Lokhu kusilela akuve kuwukuthi kwande emhlabeni wezenkolo kuphela kodwa kugcwele kuwo wonke amakholwa kaNkulunkulu. Uma sekufika usuku lapho umbona ngempela uNkulunkulu futhi ubona ubuhlakani bukaNkulunkulu; uma usubona yonke imisebenzi kaNkulunkulu futhi uqonda ukuthi uNkulunkulu uyini nokuthi unani; uma ubona ubukhulu Bakhe, ubuhlakani, isimangaliso, kanye nawo wonke umsebenzi Wakhe kumuntu, yilapho uyobe sewuthole ukukholwa okunempumelelo kuNkulunkulu. Uma kuthiwa uNkulunkulu uyikho konke futhi unokuningi kakhulu, kusho ukuthini ukuthi, uyikho konke kukho konke? Futhi kuchazwa ukuthini ngokuba nokuningi? Uma ungakuqondi lokhu, kungethiwe ukholelwa kuNkulunkulu. Kungani ngithi labo abasemhlabeni wezenkolo abakholelwa kuNkulunkulu futhi bangabenzi bobubi, abawuhlobo olufanayo noSathane? Uma ngithi bangabenzi bobubi, kungenxa yokuthi abayiqondi intando kaNkulunkulu noma babone ubuhlakani Bakhe. UNkulunkulu akawuvezi umsebenzi Wakhe kubo nhlobo; bangabantu abayizimpumputhe, abangayiboni imisebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Yilabo abashiywe nguNkulunkulu, abanganakekelwe futhi abangavikelwe uNkulunkulu, ingasaphathwa eyomsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele. Labo abangenawo umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu bangabenzi bobubi futhi bamelene noNkulunkulu. Labo engithi bamelene noNkulunkulu yilabo abangamazi uNkulunkulu, labo abazisa uNkulunkulu ngamazwi angasho lutho kodwa abamazi Yena, labo abalandela uNkulunkulu kodwa bengamhloniphi, nalabo abazitika ngomusa kaNkulunkulu kepha bengakwazi ukusukuma bamfakazele. Ngaphandle kokuqonda inhloso yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu nomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu kumuntu, umuntu ngeke aba nokuvumelana nenhliziyo kaNkulunkulu, futhi ngeke ame abe ufakazi kaNkulunkulu. Isizathu sokuthi umuntu amelane noNkulunkulu siqhamuka, ngasohlangothini olulodwa, esimweni somuntu esonakele, futhi ngakolunye uhlangothi, ekungabini nolwazi ngoNkulunkulu nokweswela ukuqonda imiyalo yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu kanye nentando yakhe ngabantu. Lezi zimo zombili ziyahlangana zibe umlando wokungavumi ukusondelana nomuntu noNkulunkulu. Izimfundamakhwela okholweni ziphikisana noNkulunkulu ngoba ukuphikisana okunjalo kusemvelweni yazo, kube ukuphikisana noNkulunkulu kwalabo abaneminyaka eminingi bekholwa kuvela ekungabini nolwazi kwabo ngoNkulunkulu, ngaphezu kwesimo sabo esinenkohlakalo. Ngesikhathi esingaphambilini kokuba uNkulunkulu athathe isimo senyama, isikali sokubona noma umuntu wayemelene noNkulunkulu kwabe kuwukuthi wayeyigcina yini imiyalelo eyayibekwe nguNkulunkulu ezulwini. Njengesibonelo, eNkathini Yomthetho, noma ubani owayengayigcini imithetho kaJehova, kwakuyilabo abamelene noNkulunkulu; noma ubani owayentshontsha iminikelo kaJehova, kanye nanoma ubani owayemelana nalabo uNkulunkulu abenzele umusa babe yilabo abamelene noNkulunkulu futhi labo babekhandwa ngamatshe baze bafe; noma ubani owayengahloniphi uyise nonina, kanye noma ubani owayeshaya noma aqalekise omunye kwakuyilabo abangayigcini imithetho. Futhi bonke ababengayigcini imithetho kaJehova kwakuyilabo ababemelene Naye. Lokhu kwakungasenjalo ngeNkathi Yomusa, lapho noma ubani omelana noJesu kwakuyilabo abamelene noNkulunkulu, futhi noma ubani owayengalaleli amazwi ayekhulunywe nguJesu kwabe kuyilabo abamelene noNkulunkulu. Kule nkathi, ukunquma “ngokumelana noNkulunkulu” kwachazwa ngokucacile nangokuyikho ngempela. Ngenkathi uNkulunkulu engakasithathi isimo senyama, isilinganiso sokuthi umuntu wayemelene noNkulunkulu kwakusekelwe ukuthi umuntu wayekhonza futhi ebheka phezulu kuNkulunkulu ongabonakali ezulwini. Incazelo “ngokumelana noNkulunkulu” ngaleso sikhathi kwabe kungeyona eyangempela, ngoba umuntu ngaleso sikhathi wayengakwazi ukubona uNkulunkulu noma ukwazi umfanekiso kaNkulunkulu noma ukuthi wayesebenza futhi ekhuluma kanjani. Umuntu wayengenayo imibono ngoNkulunkulu futhi wayekholelwa kuNkulunkulu ngokungaqondi, ngoba wayengakaveli kumuntu. Ngakho, noma iyiphi indlela umuntu ayekholelwa kuNkulunkulu emicabangweni yakhe ngayo, uNkulunkulu wayengamsoli noma afune okuningi kumuntu, ngoba umuntu wayengakwazi nhlobo ukubona uNkulunkulu. Uma uNkulunkulu ethatha isimo senyama futhi efika ukuzosebenza phakathi kwabantu, bonke bayambona uNkulunkulu futhi bayezwa amazwi Akhe, futhi bonke bayabona okwenziwa uNkulunkulu enyameni. Ngalowo mzuzu, yonke imibono yomuntu iba yigwebu. Kulabo ababona uNkulunkulu evela enyameni, bonke abanokulalela ezinhliziyweni zabo ngeke balahlwe, kepha labo abamelana Naye ngamabomu kuzothiwa bayisitha sikaNkulunkulu. Abantu abanjalo bangabaphikiKristu futhi bayizitha ezimelana noNkulunkulu ngenhloso. Labo abanemibono mayelana noNkulunkulu kepha bemlalele ngentokozo ngeke balahlwe. UNkulunkulu ulahla umuntu ngenxa yezinhloso nezenzo zakhe, hhayi ngenxa yemicabango nemibono yakhe. Uma umuntu wayelahlwa ngenxa yalokho, bekungeke kube khona owayezophunyuka ezandleni ezinolaka zikaNkulunkulu. Labo abamelana noNkulunkulu esesimweni sesintu ngenhloso bayojeziswa ngobuhlongandlebe babo. Ukumelana kwabo ngenhloso noNkulunkulu kusuka emicabangweni yabo Ngaye, edala ukuthi baphazamise umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Abantu abanjalo ngamabomu bayamelana futhi bachithe umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Abamane babe nemibono ngoNkulunkulu, kodwa benza lokho okuphazamisa umsebenzi Wakhe, futhi kungenxa yalesi sizathu abantu abanjalo beyolahlwa. Labo abangaphazamisi ngamabomu umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu ngeke balahlwe njengezoni, ngoba bayakwazi ukulalela ngokuzimisela futhi bangadali ukuthikamezeka nokuphazamiseka. Abantu abanjalo ngeke balahlwe. Nokho, uma abantu sebezizwele iminyaka eminingi yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, uma besafukamele imibono yabo ngoNkulunkulu futhi beqhubeke nokungakwazi ukwazi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu osesimweni somuntu, nakuba sebebhekane Naye iminyaka eminingi, bayaqhubeka nokubambelela emibonweni ngoNkulunkulu futhi baselokhu bengakwazi ukwazi uNkulunkulu, noma bengadali inkinga ngemibono eminingi ngoNkulunkulu ezinhliziyweni zabo, futhi noma le mibono ingaveli, abantu abanjalo abalusizo lwalutho emsebenzini kaNkulunkulu. Abakwazi ukushumayela ivangeli noma babe ngofakazi baNkulunkulu; abantu abanjalo abasizi ngalutho futhi bayiziwula. Ngenxa yokuthi abamazi uNkulunkulu futhi abakwazi ukuxosha imibono yabo ngoNkulunkulu, bayalahlwa. Kungashiwo kanje: akuyona into eqabukwayo ukuba izimfundamakhwela okholweni zibe nemibono ngoNkulunkulu noma zingazi lutho Ngaye, kodwa akujwayelekile kulabo asebekholwe iminyaka eminingi futhi bazizwela okuningi maqondana nomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu ukuthi babambelele emibonweni enjalo, kungasaphathwa ukuthi bangazi lutho ngoNkulunkulu. Ingenxa yalesi simo esingalunganga yingakho laba bantu belahlwa. Abantu abangajwayelekile abalusizo lwalutho; bayilabo abamelana noNkulunkulu kakhulu futhi abathakasele umusa kaNkulunkulu ngokuyize. Bonke abantu abanjalo bayolahlwa ekugcineni!

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 294)

Noma obani ongayiqondi inhloso yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu yilowo omelana noNkulunkulu, nakakhulu lowo owaziyo ngenhloso yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu kepha angafuni ukwanelisa uNkulunkulu. Labo abafunda iBhayibheli emasontweni amakhulu, kepha akekho noyedwa oqondayo inhloso yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Akekho noyedwa okwazi ukwazi uNkulunkulu; ngaphezu kwalokho, akekho noyedwa ovumelana nenhliziyo kaNkulunkulu. Bonke bangabantu abangenamsebenzi, abanyanyekayo, ngamunye bamile phezulu ukufundisa uNkulunkulu. Nakuba belibiza igama likaNkulunkulu, bamelana Naye ngenhloso. Nakuba bezibiza ngokwabo ukuthi bangamakholwa kaNkulunkulu, bayilabo abadla inyama futhi baphuze igazi lomuntu. Bonke abantu abanjalo bangodeveli abadla umphefumulo womuntu, amadimoni amakhulu aphazamisa ngenhloso labo abavimba ngamabomu endleleni yalabo abazama ukungena endleleni elungile, nezikhubekiso ezikhinyabeza labo abafuna uNkulunkulu. Bangabonakala “bephile kahle,” kodwa abalandeli babo bazokwazi kanjani ukuthi bangabaphikikristu abaholela abantu ekumelaneni noNkulunkulu? Bangazi kanjani ukuthi bangamadimoni aphilayo afuna imiphefumulo azoyidla? Labo abaziphakamisayo phambi kukaNkulunkulu bayilabo abaphansi kakhulu kubantu, kulapho labo abazithobayo uqobo yibo abahloniphekayo. Futhi labo abacabanga ukuthi bayawazi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu futhi bamemezele umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu kwabanye ngesasasa elikhulu lapho amehlo abo ebheke Kuye—laba abantu abanganaki kunabo bonke. Abantu abanjalo yilabo abangenabo ubufakazi bukaNkulunkulu, futhi yilabo abaqhoshayo futhi abazikhukhumezayo. Labo abakholelwa ukuthi banolwazi oluncane kakhulu ngoNkulunkulu naphezu kwesipiliyoni sabo sangempela kanye nolwazi olubonakalayo ngoNkulunkulu yilabo abathandeka kakhulu Kuye. Abantu abanjengalaba abanobufakazi bangempela futhi bayakwazi ngempela ukuthi bapheleliswe nguNkulunkulu. Labo abangayiqondi intando kaNkulunkulu bayizitha zikaNkulunkulu; labo abayiqondayo intando kaNkulunkulu kepha abangalenzi iqiniso bayizitha zikaNkulunkulu; labo abadla baphuze amazwi kaNkulunkulu kepha benze ngokuphambene nengqikithi yamazwi kaNkulunkulu bayizitha zikaNkulunkulu; labo abanemibono ngoNkulunkulu othathe isimo somuntu futhi abadlubulunda ngenhloso bayizitha zikaNkulunkulu; labo abahlulela uNkulunkulu bayizitha zikaNkulunkulu; futhi nanoma ubani ongakwazi ukwazi uNkulunkulu nokumfakazela uyisitha sikaNkulunkulu. Ngakho yizwa ukunxusa Kwami: Uma ninokholo ngempela lokuhamba le ndlela, qhubekani nokuyilandela. Uma ningakwazi ukuyeka ukumelana noNkulunkulu, ngakho velani nihambe kakhulu nishiye ningaze niphelelwe isikhathi. Kungenjalo, ngempela kubika okubi kunokuhle, ngoba imvelo yenu yonakalisiwe kakhulu. Aninakho nokuncane ukwethembeka noma ukulalela, noma inhliziyo eyomela ukulunga neqiniso. Futhi aninalo ngisho noluncane uthando lukaNkulunkulu. Kungathiwa isimo senu phambi kukaNkulunkulu sisenkingeni yangempela. Anikwazi ukugcina lokho okufanele nikugcine noma nikhulume lokho okufanele nikukhulume. Anikwazi ukwenza lokho okufanele nikwenze, futhi anikwazi ukwenza umsebenzi okufanele niwenze. Aninakho ukuthembeka, unembeza, ukulalela nokuba nesibindi niqine okufanele nibe nakho. Anizange nibekezelele ukuhlupheka obekufanele nikumele, futhi aninakho ukukholwa okufanele ngabe ninakho. Aninalutho nje oluhle kini: Ninakho ukuzihlonipha okunganisiza ukuthi niqhubeke nempilo? Ngiyakugqugquzela ngithi kungcono nivale amehlo ingunaphakade, ngaleyo ndlela niyohawukela uNkulunkulu ekukhathazekeni ngani futhi nasekubhekaneni nobuhlungu ngenxa yenu. Niyakholwa kuNkulunkulu kodwa aniyazi intando Yakhe; niyadla futhi niphuze amazwi kaNkulunkulu kepha anikwazi ukugcina imibandela kaNkulunkulu. Niyakholwa kuNkulunkulu kepha animazi, futhi niyaphila nakuba ningenanhloso eniyilwelayo. Aninazo izinto ezibalulekile kini futhi aninanhloso. Niphila njengomuntu kodwa aninawo unembeza, ukwethembeka nokukholeka ngisho okuncane. Kungashiwo kanjani ukuthi ningabantu? Nikholwa kuNkulunkulu kodwa niyamkhohlisa Yena. Ngaphezu kwalokho, nithatha imali kaNkulunkulu futhi nidle eminikelweni Yakhe, kepha ekugcineni, ningakhombisi ukunaka imizwa kaNkulunkulu noma unembeza mayelana noNkulunkulu. Awukho ngisho omncane umbandela kaNkulunkulu enikwazi ukuwugcina. Ngakho kungashiwo kanjani ukuthi ningabantu? Ukudla enikudlayo nomoya eniwuphefumulayo uvela kuNkulunkulu, ujabulela umusa Wakhe, kepha ekugcineni awunalo noluncane ulwazi ngoNkulunkulu. Esikhundleni salokho, sewuphenduke into engeyalutho emelene noNkulunkulu. Awusona ke isilwane esingengcono kunenja? Zikhona ezinye izilwane ezinonya njengawe?

Labo befundisi namalunga abama epulpiti eliphakeme bafundisa abantu ukuthi bayizitha zikaNkulunkulu futhi bahlangene noSathane; labo benu abama epulpiti eliphakeme ukushumayela nifundisa abantu, anizona izitha zikaNkulunkulu ezinkulu? Ngaphezu kwalokho, anive nivumelene ngasese ukwenza ububi noSathane? Labo abangayiqondi inhloso yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu abakwazi ukuvumelana nenhliziyo kaNkulunkulu. Ngokuqinisekile, ngeke kube yiqiniso kulabo abaqondayo inhloso yomsebenzi Wakhe? Umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu awukaze ube sephutheni; kunalokho ukushisekela komuntu okunephutha. Labo bantu abaphuphile abamelana noNkulunkulu ngenhloso, babi ngokwedlulele futhi benonya ngaphezu kwalabo befundisi namalunga? Baningi abamelene noNkulunkulu, futhi phakathi kwalabo bantu, kunezinhlobo ezihlukahlukene zokumelana noNkulunkulu. Njengoba kukhona zonke izinhlobo zamakholwa, ngokunjalo kukhona zonke izinhlobo zabantu abamelene noNkulunkulu, omunye akafani nomunye. Akekho noyedwa kulabo abangayiboni ngokucacile inhloso kaNkulunkulu ongasindiswa. Akukhathali ukuthi umuntu ubemelene kanjani noNkulunkulu ngaphambilini uma umuntu eseyiqonda inhloso yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu futhi enikela imizamo yakhe ukwenelisa uNkulunkulu, izono zakhe zangaphambilini ziyosulwa nguNkulunkulu ahlanzeke. Inqobo nje uma umuntu efuna iqiniso futhi elenza iqiniso, uNkulunkulu ngeke akugcine emqondweni Wakhe ukuthi wenzani. Ngakho-ke, kuncike ekwenzeni iqiniso komuntu, ukuthi uNkulunkulu alungisise umuntu. Ukulunga kukaNkulunkulu lokhu. Ngaphambi kokuthi umuntu abone uNkulunkulu noma azizwele umsebenzi Wakhe, akukhathaleki ukuthi umuntu wenza kanjani mayelana noNkulunkulu, akakugcini emqondweni lokho. Kepha, uma umuntu esembonile uNkulunkulu futhi wazizwela umsebenzi Wakhe, yonke imisebenzi nezenzo zomuntu ziyabhalwa “emilandweni” kaNkulunkulu, ngoba umuntu usembonile uNkulunkulu futhi waphila emsebenzini Wakhe.

Uma umuntu esebonile lokho uNkulunkulu anakho nayikho, esebonile ubukhulu Bakhe, futhi waze wawazi ngempela umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, futhi ngaphezu kwalokho, uma isimo somuntu sangaphambilini sesishintshiwe, umuntu uzobe eselahla isimo sakhe esinokudlubulunda esimelana noNkulunkulu. Kungashiwo ukuthi wonke umuntu uke wamelana noNkulunkulu futhi wonke umuntu wake wamhlubuka uNkulunkulu. Kepha, uma unomqondo wokulalela uNkulunkulu osesimweni somuntu, futhi kusukela manje wenelise inhliziyo kaNkulunkulu ngokuthembeka kwakho, ukwenza iqiniso okufanele ulenze, ukwenza umsebenzi wakhe njengoba kufanele, futhi ugcine imigomo ekufanele uyigcine, uyilowo ozimisele ukulahla ukudlubulunda ukwanelisa uNkulunkulu futhi lowo ungapheleliswa uNkulunkulu. Uma unqaba ukubona amaphutha akho futhi ungenayo inhliziyo yokuphenduka; uma uqhubeka ezindleleni zakho zokuhlubuka, futhi ungenayo nhlobo inhliziyo yokusebenza noNkulunkulu nokwanelisa uNkulunkulu, isiwula esinenkani njengawe nakanjani siyojeziswa futhi asisoze sibe yilowo ongapheleliswa nguNkulunkulu. Uma unjalo, uyisitha sikaNkulunkulu namuhla nakusasa, futhi uyohlala uyisitha sikaNkulunkulu nangosuku olulandelayo; uyohlala njalo uyimbangi nesitha sikaNkulunkulu. Uyokudedela kanjani uNkulunkulu? Kuyimvelo yomuntu ukumelana noNkulunkulu, kodwa umuntu ngeke azimisele ukufuna izimfihlo zokumelana noNkulunkulu ngoba ukushintsha imvelo yakhe kuwumsebenzi onzima ngangentaba. Uma isimo sinjalo, kungcono uvele uhambe ungaze uphelelwe isikhathi, hleze ukujeziswa kwakho ngesikhathi esizayo kube nzima kakhulu, futhi hleze imvelo yakho yobulwane ivele futhi ingalawuleki uze umzimba wakho wenyama ushabalaliswe nguNkulunkulu ekugcineni. Uyakholwa kuNkulunkulu ukuze ubusiseke; uma ekugcineni, wehlelwa amabhadi kuphela, ngeke kulunge lokho. Ngiyanikhuthaza ukuthi nenze elinye isu; noma yini enye into eningayenza ingangcono kunokholo lwenu kuNkulunkulu. Ngokuqinisekile, zikhona ezinye izindlela ngaphandle kwalena? Ningaqhubeka nempilo ngaphandle kokufuna iqiniso? Kungani niphila ningezwani ngale ndlela noNkulunkulu?

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 295)

Ngenze umsebenzi omningi phakathi kwabantu, namazwi engiwakhulume ngalesi sikhathi maningi. La mazwi angenxa yensindiso yomuntu, kanti akhulunywa ukuze umuntu afanelane Nami. Noma ngizuze abantu abambalwa emhlabeni abafanelana Nami, ngakho ngiyasho ngithi umuntu akawenzi igugu amazwi Ami, ngoba umuntu akafanelani Nami. Ngale ndlela, umsebenzi engiwenzayo akuwona owokuthi umuntu angidumise; okubalulekile owokuthi umuntu afanelane Nami. Abantu, abakhohlakele bonke bahlala ogibeni lukaSathane, baphila enyameni, baphila ezifisweni zokuzifunela, futhi akekho namunye phakathi kwabo ofanelana Nami. Kunalabo abathi bafanelana Nami, kodwa bonke badumisa izithixo ezingabonakali. Yize bevuma ukuthi igama Lami lingcwele, bahamba endleleni ephambana Nami, kanti amazwi abo agcwele ukuzidla nokuzethemba, ngoba, ekuqaleni baphambana Nami, futhi abafanelani Nami. Nsuku zonke bafuna imikhondo Yami eBhayibhelini bathole izingxenye “ezifanele” benganakile abazifunda bangaqedi bese bezisho “njengemibhalo”. Abakwazi ukuthi bafanelane Nami, abazi ukuthi kusho ukuthini ukungazwani Nami, baphinde bafunde “imibhalo” ngokunganaki. Bazicindezela ngeBhayibheli kuNkulunkulu ongabonakali abangakaze bambone, futhi abangeke bakwazi ukumbona, bazinikeze isikhathi sokubheka esikhathini sabo esiseceleni. Bayakholwa ukuthi ngikhona ngokweBhayibheli kuphela. Kubona, ngiyafana neBhayibheli; ngaphandle kweBhayibheli angikho Mina, futhi ngaphandle Kwami alikho iBhayibheli. Abanendaba nobukhona noma izenzo Zami, kunalokhu banake kakhulu igama negama lombhalo ongcwele, futhi abaningi babo bakholelwa ukuthi kufanele ngingenzi lutho engifisa ukukwenza ngaphandle kokuthi kwabikezelwa umbhalo ongcwele. Benza umbhalo ongcwele ubaluleke kakhulu. Kungathiwa nje ukuthi babona amazwi nezinkulumo zibaluleke kakhulu, ukufika ekutheni basebenzisa amavesi aseBhayibhelini ukulinganisa igama negama engilishoyo, nokungehlulela. Lokho abakufunayo akuyona indlela yokufanelana Nami, noma indlela yokufanelana neqiniso, kodwa indlela yokufanelana namazwi eBhayibheli, futhi bakholelwa wukuthi noma yini engahambelani neBhayibheli, ngaphandle kokukhetha, akusiwo umsebenzi Wami. Ingabe abantu abanjalo abazona izizukulwane ezilalelayo zabaFarisi? AbaFarisi abangamaJuda babesebenzisa umthetho kaMose ukwehlulela uJesu. Abazange bafune ukufanelana noJesu wangaleso sikhathi, kodwa ngokukhuthala balandela umthetho kwaze kwaba yilapho kufinyelela ekutheni babethele uJesu ongenacala esiphambanweni, bembeke icala bengalandelanga umthetho weTestamente Elidala nokuthi akayena uMesiya. Kwakuyini umnyombo wabo? Kwakungekhona yini ukuthi abazange bafune izindlela zokufanelana neqiniso? Babenentshisekelo ngawo wonke amazwi ombhalo ongcwele, bebe bengenandaba nentando Yami nezinyathelo nezindlela zomsebenzi Wami. Babengebona abantu ababefuna iqiniso, kodwa abantu ababebambelela ngokuqinile emazwini; bebengebona abantu abakholelwa kuNkulunkulu, kodwa abantu abakholelwa eBhayibhelini. Empeleni, bebengonogada beBhayibheli. Ukuze bavikele okungokweBhayibheli, baqhakambise isithunzi seBhayibheli, bavikele isithunzi salo, baze bafika ekubetheleni uJesu onomusa esiphambanweni. Lokhu bakwenze nje ngoba befuna ukuvikela iBhayibheli, nokugcina ukuma kwegama ngalinye eliseBhayibhelini nawo wonke amazwi aseBhayibhelini esezinhliziyweni zabantu. Ngakho-ke bakhethe ukushiya ikusasa labo nomnikelo wesono ukwahlulela uJesu, ongazange ahambelane nezimfundiso zombhalo oyingcwele, ukuya ekufeni. Ingabe babengezona izinceku egameni ngalinye loMbhalo ongcwele?

Bese kwenzekani ngabantu namuhla? UKristu uzele ukuzokhulula iqiniso, kodwa babona kungcono ukumxosha ebantwini ukuze bathole umusa. Bangamane baphike ngokuphelele ukuza kweqiniso ukuze bavikele okweBhayibheli, futhi bangamane babethele uKristu obuyele enyameni esiphambanweni ukuze baqinisekise ukuba khona kweBhayibheli ingunaphakade. Umuntu angayithola kanjani insindiso Yami, uma inhliziyo yakhe iyimbi kangaka, nesimo sakhe semvelo siphikisana kangaka Nami? Ngihlala phakathi kwabantu, kodwa abantu ababazi ubukhona Bami. Uma ngikhanyisa ukukhanya Kwami kubantu balokhu behlala bebungabaza ubukhona Bami. Uma ngidedela ulaka Lwami phezu komuntu, ukuphika ngelikhulu iqholo ukuba khona Kwami. Umuntu ufuna ukufanelana ngamazwi, ngeBhayibheli kodwa akekho noyedwa umuntu oza phambi Kwami afune indlela yokufanelana neqiniso. Umuntu ubheka Kimi ezulwini, anikele ukukhathazeka okuthile ebukhoneni Bami ezulwini, kodwa akekho onginakayo enyameni, ngoba Mina engihlala phakathi kwabantu angibalulekanga nhlobo. Labo abafuna kuphela ukufanelana namazwi eBhayibheli, abafuna ukufanelana noNkulunkulu ongabonakali, bayisinengiso Kimi. Kungenxa yokuthi lokho abakukhonzayo kungamazwi afile, noNkulunkulu okwazi ukubanikeza ingcebo engelinganiswe. Abakukhonzayo uNkulunkulu ozibeka emseni womuntu futhi ongekho. Manje, abantu abanjalo bangazuzani Kimi? Umuntu uhlwempu kakhulu ngamazwi. Labo abaphikisana Nami, abenza izimfuno ezingapheli Kimi, abangalithandi iqiniso, abahlubukayo Kimi—bangafanelana kanjani Nami?

Labo abaphikisana Nami yilabo abangafanelani Nami. Kanye nalabo abangalithandi iqiniso, labo abangihlubukayo baphikisana nami kakhulu futhi abafanelani Nami. Bonke labo abangafanelani Nami banginikela ezandleni zomubi. Ngibanikela enkohlakalweni yomubi, ngibanikeze intambo ende ukuze bazembule ububi babo, ekugcineni ngibanikezele komubi ukuba abashabalalise. Anginandaba ukuthi bangaki abangikhonzayo, okungukuthi, anginandaba nokuthi bangaki abakholelwayo Kimi. Engikunakayo kuphela ukuthi bangaki abantu abafanelana Nami. Lokhu kungenxa yokuthi bonke labo abangafanelani Nami yilabo ababi abangithengisayo; bayizitha zami, kanti angeke “ngizivikele” izitha Zami endlini Yami. Labo abafanelana Nami bazohlala njalo bengikhonza ekhaya Lami, kanti labo abazenza izitha Zami bazohlala bethola isijeziso Sami. Labo abanaka kuphela amazwi eBhayibheli abangenamsebenzi neqiniso noma ukufuna ezinyathelweni Zami—baphikisana Nami, ngoba bangibekela umngcele ngokweBhayibheli, bangicindezele eBhayibhelini, kanjalo bayahlambalaza kakhulu Kimi. Bangeza kanjani abantu abanjalo Kimi? Abaziqapheli izenzo Zami, noma intando Yami, noma iqiniso, kodwa kunalokho ba bathathekile ngamazwi, amazwi abulalayo. Bangafanelana kanjani Nami abantu abanjalo?

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 296)

Ngemva kokuba iqiniso lokuba yinyama kukaJesu libe khona, umuntu wayekholwa yilokhu: Ezulwini akukho kuphela uBaba, kodwa kuneNdodana, kanye noMoya imbala. Abantu bebelokhu bekholelwa, ukuthi kunalo Nkulunkulu ezulwini: uZiqu zintathu okunguYise, iNdodana, noMoya oNgcwele, bamunye. Bonke abantu banalo mbono othi: uNkulunkulu unguNkulunkulu oyedwa, kodwa owakhiwe yizingxenye ezintathu, lo mbono wabantu osugxilile uveza ukuthi kunoYise, iNdodana noMoya oNgcwele. Lezo zingxenye zontathu zakha uNkulunkulu oyedwa. Ngaphandle kukaYise oNgcwele, uNkulunkulu ubengeke aphelele. Ngokufanayo, uNkulunkulu ubengeke aphelele ngaphandle kweNdodana noma uMoya oNgcwele. Ngokwemibono yabo, bakholelwa ukuthi akekho phakathi kukaYise yedwa noma iNdodana yodwa ongaba nguNkulunkulu ozimele. UYise, iNdodana noMoya oNgcwele kuphela onguNkulunkulu Ngokwakhe. Bonke abantu abasontayo, ngisho umlandeli ngayedwa phakathi kwenu, niyakukholelwa lokhu. Kepha, mayelana nokuthi le nkolelo iyiqiniso yini akekho owaziyo, kodwa kube kufanele, ngoba ngisho nezindaba eziphathelene noNkulunkulu Ngokwakhe. Nakuba lena kuyimibono, anazi ukuthi ilungile noma ayilungile, ngoba iye yakuthonya kakhulu ukucabanga kwenu. Niye nayamukela le mibono yenkolo futhi lo shevu uye wangena wagxila ezinhliziyweni zenu. Ngakho ngokufanayo, niye nathonywa yile nkolelo nakuba uZiqu Zintathu kuyinto engekho. Okuwukuthi, uZiqu Zintathu onguYise, yiNdodana noMoya oNgcwele yinto engekho. Lena kumane nje kuyimibono ejwayelekile yabantu, nezinkolelo zabantu ezingelona iqiniso. Emakhulwini amaningi eminyaka abantu bebekholelwa kulo Ziqu Zintathu, ngenxa yokudideka okubangelwa yimibono yabantu, eyasungulwa abantu, futhi engakaze ibonwe abantu. Phakathi nayo yonke le minyaka eminingi, kube khona abahlaziyi beBhayibheli abaningi abachaze “incazelo eyiqiniso” ngoZiqu Zintathu, kodwa lezo zincazelo zikaZiqu Zintathu ongabantu abathathu abahlukene kodwa besimo sinye azizange ziqondakale futhi azicacanga, futhi bonke abantu badidekile “ngesakhiwo” sikaNkulunkulu. Akekho umuntu oke wakwazi ukusichaza kahle; izincazelo eziningi zidlula obequnga ngokwencazelo nasephepheni, kodwa akekho ngisho noyedwa umuntu oye wayiqonda ngokugcwele le incazelo. Lokhu kubangelwa ukuthi lo Ziqu Zintathu wodumo abantu abawuthanda kangaka awukho. Akekho umuntu owake wabona ngokoqobo ubuso bukaNkulunkulu noma akekho owake waba nenhlanhla yokuvakashela lapho kuhlala khona uNkulunkulu abone izinto ezikhona lapho kuphumula khona uNkulunkulu ukuqonda ukuthi mangaki ngempela amakhulu noma izigidi zezizukulwane “ezisendlini kaNkulunkulu” noma ukuhlola ukuthi zingaki izingxenye ezakha isakhiwo sesimo sikaNkulunkulu. Nakhu ngempela okumelwe kucaciswe: ukuthi mingaki iminyaka kaBaba neyeNdodana, kanye neyoMoya oNgcwele; izimo ngazinye zomuntu ngamunye; ngempela kwenzeka kanjani ukuba bahlukane, nokuthi bahlangana kanjani babe munye. Ngeshwa, phakathi kwayo yonke le minyaka, akekho umuntu oye wazi iqiniso ngalezi zindaba. Konke nje ukuqagela, ngoba akekho oke wenyukela ezulwini wabuya “nombiko wophenyo” kubantu bonke ukuze abike ngeqiniso lale ndaba kumakholwa ashisekayo nazinikele mayelana noZiqu Zintathu. Nokho, asikwazi ukusola abantu ngokusungula leyo mibono, ngoba kungani uJehova, uYise, engazange asebenze noJesu, iNdodana, lapho edala isintu? Ukube kusukela ekuqaleni, konke kwenzeka ngentando kaJehova, ngabe kungcono. Uma kukhona umuntu okumele asolwe, akusolwe uJehova uNkulunkulu ngokwehluleka kwakhe isikhashana, ukubiza iNdodana kanye noMoya oNgcwele phambi Kwakhe lapho edala, kunalokho wakhetha ukudala yedwa. Ukube bonke babesebenza kanye kanye, babengeke yini babe munye? Ake sithi, kusukela khona kanye ekuqaleni kuze kube sekugcineni, kwakunegama likaJehova kuphela hhayi elikaJesu kusukela eNkathini Yomusa, noma ukube wayesabizwa ngoJehova ngaleso sikhathi, uNkulunkulu wayengeke yini akugweme ukuhlupheka okubangelwa ukudideka kwabantu? Eqinisweni, uJehova akanakugxekwa ngakho konke lokhu; uma kukhona okumele asolwe, makusolwe uMoya oNgcwele, okwaphela izinkulungwane zeminyaka usebenza ngegama likaJehova, likaJesu neloMoya oNgcwele imbala, wenza abantu badideke bangaqondi ngezinga lokuthi bangabe bedazi nokuthi ungubani ngempela uNkulunkulu. Ukube uMoya oNgcwele Uqobo awusebenzanga ngesimo esithile noma isithombe, ngaphezu kwalokho, ukube awusebenzanga ngegama elinjengelikaJesu, kunalokho abantu bebengeke bakwazi ukuwuthinta noma bawubone, bangagcini nje ngokuzwa imisindo yokuduma, wawungeke yini lo msebenzi ube inzuzo kubantu? Yini engenziwa manje? Imibono yabantu iqongelelene yaphakama kuhle kwentaba, yaba banzi njengolwandle, kangangokuthi uNkulunkulu wosuku lwethu akasakwazi ukuyibekezelela futhi lokhu kuye kuyincithakalo ngokuphelele. Endulo ngesikhathi kusenoJehova, uJesu kanye noMoya oNgcwele phakathi kwabo bobabili, kakade abantu base benokudideka, futhi manje sekunoMninimandla Onke, okuthiwa naye uyingxenye kaNkulunkulu. Ngubani owaziyo ukuthi ungubani-ke lo Mninimandla Onke nokuthi uhlanganiswa nayiphi ingxenye kaZiqu Zintathu, nokuthi wayethukuswe kuphi kule minyaka eminingi? Abantu bangakubekezelela kanjani lokhu? Sekudlule isikhathi eside abantu bezama ukuchaza le mfundiso eyodwa kaZiqu Zintathu, kodwa manje sekukhona “uNkulunkulu oyedwa kubantu abane.” Ichazwa kanjani into enje? Ningakwazi ukuyichaza le nto? Bazalwane! Benikholelwa kanjani kulo Nkulunkulu kuze kube manje? Nginethulela isigqoko. Bekwanele ukubekezelela uNkulunkulu oneziqu ezintathu; ningaqhubeka kanjani nokuba nokholo olungenakunyakaziswa kanjalo kulo Nkulunkulu oyedwa oseziqwini ezine? Niye nanxuswa ukuba niphume, kodwa niyenqaba. Kwaze kwadabukisa! Angazi ukuthi ningabantu abanjani ngempela! Umuntu angaze akholelwe “koNkulunkulu abane” kodwa angenzi lutho ngalokho; aniboni yini ukuthi iyisimanga le nto? Bengingazi ukuthi nikwazi ukwen za isimangaliso esinjena! Niyazi ukuthini, eqinisweni, uZiqu Zintathu uyinto engekho. UNkulunkulu akanaye uYise noma iNdodana, ingasaphathwa eyokuba khona komqondo othi uYise neNdodana basebenzisa ngokubambisana uMoya oNgcwele njengethuluzi. Wonke lawa ngamanga futhi yinto engakaze ibe khona kulo mhlaba! Kodwa la manga anomsuka futhi anesisekelo esithile, nihlakaniphe kabi ukuba ningavele nikhohliseke nje kanjalo. Kodwa, la manga abonakala eyiqiniso futhi eyimvelo, kangangokuthi awanakungenwa ngisho uSathane imbala. Okubuhlungu ukuthi yonke le mibono ingamanga futhi ayikaze ibe khona! Anikalazi iqiniso langempela; nimane niyaqagela futhi niyazicabangela nje, niyiguqule ibe yindaba yokukhohlisa abantu ukuze nethenjwe abanye nokuphatha abayiziphukuphuku ezingenakuhlakanipha nabangacabangisisi kahle, ukuze bakholelwe “emfundisweni ephusile” enkulu nedumile. Yiqiniso leli? Ingabe iyona ndlela le umuntu okumele ayamukele? Udoti wonke lo! Alikho nelilodwa igama elifanelekile! Kuyo yonke le minyaka, benilokhu nihlukanisa uNkulunkulu ngale ndlela, isizukulwane nesizukulwane besilokhu simhlukanisa kancane kancane, kangangokuba uNkulunkulu oyedwa usehlukaniswe waba oNkulunkulu abathathu, manje sekunzima kubantu ukumbuyisela abe uNkulunkulu oyedwa, ngoba niye namhlukanisa kakhulu! Ukube angifikanga ngesikhathi, angazi ukuthi beniyonhlanhlatha nize nifike kuphi! Ukuqhubeka nokwahlukanisa uNkulunkulu ngale ndlela, angaqhubeka kanjani abe nguNkulunkulu wenu? Nisengakwazi kodwa ukumbona uNkulunkulu? Nisengakwazi ukumvuma njengoyihlo futhi nibuyele Kuye? Ukube ngifike sekwedlule isikhathi, cishe beniyoze nithumele emuva “uYise neNdodana” uJehova noJesu, kwa-Israyeli bese nani ngokwenu nithi niyingxenye kaNkulunkulu. Sesibonga khona ukuthi manje yizinsuku zokugcina. Ekugcineni, luze lwafika usuku ekade ngalulinda, futhi ukwehlukanisa kwenu uNkulunkulu kuzophela manje, ngemva kokuba sengiqede ukwenza lo msebenzi ngezandla Zami. Ngaphandle kwalokho, beniyoze nidlulele, nize nibeke bonke oSathane abaphakathi kwenu ematafuleni enu ukuze nibakhonze. Leli icebo lenu! Inhloso yenu yokwehlukanisa uNkulunkulu! Nisazoqhubeka nenza kanjalo? Ake nginibuze: Bangaki oNkulunkulu abakhona? Yimuphi uNkulunkulu ozonisindisa? UNkulunkulu wokuqala, owesibili noma yilona wesithathu obulokhu uthandaza kuye? Yimuphi kubo obulokhu ukholelwa kuye? UBaba? Noma iNdodana? Noma uMoya oNgcwele? Awusho yimuphi okholelwa kuye. Nakuba uthi uyakholelwa kuNkulunkulu kodwa eqinisweni okukholelwayo ngempela yingqondo yakho! UNkulunkulu akekho enhliziyweni yakho! Kodwa, engqondweni yakho kugcwele inqwaba “yoZiqu Zintathu”! Awuvumi?

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 297)

Uma izigaba ezintathu zomsebenzi bezingahlolwa ngokuvumelana nemfundiso kaZiqu Zintathu, khona-ke kusho ukuthi kumelwe ukuthi kunoNkulunkulu abathathu njengoba umsebenzi owenziwa oyedwa ungesiwo ofanayo. Uma kukhona phakathi kwenu othi ikhona ngempela le nto kaZiqu Zintathu, akachaze ukuthi uyini ngempela lo Nkulunkulu oyedwa kubantu abathathu. Ungubani uYise oNgcwele? Ingubani iNdodana? Uyini uMoya oNgcwele? Ingabe uJehova unguYise oNgcwele? Ingabe uJesu uyiNdodana? Ngakho uyini pho uMoya oNgcwele? UYise akawona yini uMoya? Ingabe ingxenye ethile yeNdodana ayiwona yini uMoya? Imisebenzi kaJesu yayingeyona yini imisebenzi yoMoya oNgwele? Imisebenzi kaJehova okwesikhathi esithile yayiqondiswa uMoya ofana noJesu? UNkulunkulu oyedwa angaba nemiMoya emingaki? Ngokwencazelo yakho, la bantu abathathu uYise, iNdodana noMoya oNgcwele bamunye; uma kunjalo, kusho ukuthi kunoMoya omthathu, kodwa ukuze kube noMoya omthathu kusho ukuthi kunoNkulunkulu abathathu. Lokhu kusho ukuthi akekho uNkulunkulu oyedwa weqiniso; lo Nkulunkulu angaqhubeka kanjani abe nemvelo yoqobo kaNkulunkulu kuye? Uma uvuma ukuthi kunoNkulunkulu oyedwa, angaba kanjani nendodana aphinde abe ubaba? Akuyona yini imibono yakho leyo? Kukhona uNkulunkulu oyedwa, noMoya owodwa kaNkulunkulu, njengoba kulotshiwe eBhayibhelini ukuthi “KunoMoya oNgcwele owodwa noNkulunkulu oyedwa kuphela.” Kungakhathaliseki ukuthi uYise neNdodana okhuluma ngabo bakhona noma cha, kunoNkulunkulu oyedwa, futhi le ngxenye kaYise, iNdodana, noMoya oNgcwele okholelwa kukho kuyingxenye yoMoya oNgcwele. Ngamanye amazwi, uNkulunkulu unguMoya, kodwa uyakwazi ukuba yinyama aphile phakathi kwabantu, futhi abe ngaphezu kwakho konke. UMoya wakhe uyikho konke futhi uhlale ukhona. Angakwazi ukuba senyameni ngesikhathi esifanayo futhi abe semhlabeni nangaphezu kwawo. Njengoba bonke abantu bethi uNkulunkulu uwukuphela kukaNkulunkulu weqiniso, kusho ukuthi kunoNkulunkulu oyedwa, okwazi ukuba yikho konke! UNkulunkulu unguMoya owodwa, ungumuntu oyedwa; futhi lowo uMoya kaNkulunkulu. Uma kuya njengokusho kwakho, uYise, iNdodana kanye noMoya oNgcwele, lokho kusho ukuthi ababona oNkulunkulu abathathu, akunjalo? UMoya ungenye into iNdodana ingenye kanjalo noYise ungenye. Iziqu Zabo zehlukene futhi izingqikithi Zabo zihlukene, ngakho bahlangana kanjani futhi babe yingxenye kaNkulunkulu oyedwa? UMoya oNgcwele unguMoya; kulula ngabantu ukuba baqonde lokho. Uma kunjalo, kusho ukuthi uYise unguMoya nakakhulu. Akakaze ehlele emhlabeni futhi akazange abe yinyama; unguJehova uNkulunkulu osezinhliziyweni zabantu, impela unguMoya. Uma kunjalo, yibuphi ubuhlobo obukhona phakathi Kwakhe noMoya oNgcwele? Ingabe lobu ubuhlobo obufanayo obuphakathi kukaYise neNdodana? Noma ubuhlobo obufanayo noboMoya oNgcwele kanye noMoya kaYise? Ingabe ingxenye ngayinye yoMoya iyefana? Noma ingabe uMoya oNgcwele uyithuluzi likaYise? Yikuphi ngempela okuyikona? Buyini-ke ubuhlobo phakathi kweNdodana noMoya oNgcwele? Ingabe lobu ubuhlobo obuphakathi kwemiMoya imibili noma ubuhlobo obuphakathi komuntu noMoya? Lena yimpicabadala! Uma kuwukuthi kunoMoya owodwa, kusho ukuthi ayikho indaba yabantu abathathu ngoba ngeke bangenwe uMoya owodwa, uma bengabantu abathathu abahlukene, kusho ukuthi amandla oMoya wabo ngeke afane, futhi akukwazi ukuthi kube noMoya owodwa. Le mfundiso kaYise, iNdodana noMoya oNgcwele iwubulima! Lokhu kwahlukanisa uNkulunkulu ahlukane abe abantu abathathu, ngamunye onesiqu noMoya; angaba kanjani futhi uMoya owodwa noNkulunkulu oyedwa? Ake nisho, ingabe amazulu nomhlaba nakho konke okukuwo kwadalwa uYise, iNdodana noma uMoya oNgcwele? Abanye bathi konke lokhu bakudala ndawonye. Ngakho ubani-ke pho owasindisa isintu? Ingabe nguMoya oNgcwele, yiNdodana noma nguYise? Abanye bathi yiNdodana eyahlenga isintu. Ngakho ingubani ngempela le Ndodana? Ayikona yini ewukubonakaliswa koMoya kaNkulunkulu? UNkulunkulu esesimweni somuntu, uJesu ubiza uNkulunkulu osezulwini ngokuthi Baba. Awazi yini ukuthi uJesu wazalwa ngokoMoya oNgcwele? UnoMoya oNgcwele; noma ungathini, uJesu unoNkulunkulu ezulwini, ngoba uyisimo sikaNkulunkulu soMoya. Le mfundiso yokuthi kuneNdodana ayilona neze iqiniso. NguMoya owodwa owenza zonke izinto; uNkulunkulu Uqobo, okungukuthi, uMoya kaNkulunkulu owenza imisebenzi yakhe. Ubani uMoya kaNkulunkulu? Awuwona yini uMoya oNgcwele? UMoya oNgcwele awusebenzi yini kuJesu? Uma umsebenzi ungenziwanga nguMoya oNgcwele, (okunguMoya kaNkulunkulu) ingabe le misebenzi yenziwa nguNkulunkulu Uqobo? Njengoba ayethandaza, uJesu wabiza uNkulunkulu ezulwini ngokuthi Baba, lokhu wakwenza esesimweni somuntu odaliwe, ngoba kuphela uMoya kaNkulunkulu wawembethe inyama ejwayelekile nevamile futhi embeswe isimo somuntu. Nakuba ngaphakathi wayenoMoya kaNkulunkulu, ukubukeka Kwakhe kwangaphandle kwakusengokomuntu ovamile; ngamanye amazwi, wayesephenduke “iNdodana yomuntu” okungukuthi futhi bonke abantu bakhuluma, kuhlanganise naye uJesu Uqobo, njengoba ebizwa ngeNdodana yomuntu, ungumuntu (ngabe umuntu wesilisa noma wesifazane, kunoma yikuphi onesimo sangaphandle somuntu) ozalelwe emndenini nakubantu abajwayelekile. Ngakho-ke, ukubiza kukaJesu uNkulunkulu ezulwini ngokuthi Baba, kuyefana nalapho wena umbiza ngokuthi Baba; Lokho wakusho esesimweni somuntu. Uyawukhumbula uMthandazo weNkosi, uJesu akufundisa ukuba uwubambe ngekhanda? “Baba wethu osezulwini….” Kulo mthandazo, uJesu watshela bonke ukuba babize uNkulunkulu osezulwini ngoBaba. Futhi, njengoba naye umbiza ngoBaba, wakusho lokhu ngokombono noma esesimweni sokulingana nani nonke. Njengoba nani nibiza uNkulunkulu ezulwini ngoBaba, lokhu kubonisa ukuthi uJesu wazilinganisa nani, futhi njengomuntu wasemhlabeni owayekhethwe uNkulunkulu (okungukuthi, iNdodana kaNkulunkulu). Uma ubiza uNkulunkulu “ngoBaba,” akukona yini ukuthi umbiza ngoba wena uyisidalwa? Noma kunjalo, naphezu kwegunya uJesu ayenalo ngaphambi kokuba abethelwe, wayemane eyiNdodana yomuntu, eqondiswa uMoya kaNkulunkulu (okungukuthi, uNkulunkulu), njengesinye sezidalwa zasemhlabeni, ngoba wayengakawuqedi umsebenzi wakhe. Ngakho-ke, ukuthobeka nokulalela kuphela okwamgqugquzela ukuba abize uNkulunkulu osezulwini ngoBaba. Nokho, ngokubiza uNkulunkulu (okungukuthi, uMoya osezulwini) ngaleyo ndlela, akusho ukuthi uyiNdodana yoMoya kaNkulunkulu osezulwini. Kunalokho, kumane kusho ukuthi umbono wakhe wehlukile, hhayi kodwa ukuthi ungumuntu owehlukile. Imfundiso yokuthi kunabantu abehlukile ingamanga! Ngaphambi kokuba abethelwe, uJesu wayeseyiNdodana yomuntu ebhekene nokulinganiselwa kwenyama, engenalo igunya eliphelele loMoya. Yingakho ayenza intando kaNkulunkulu uYise ngokombono wesidalwa senyama. Yingakho athandaza kathathu eGetsemane: “Kungabi ngokuthanda Kwami, kodwa ngokuthanda Kwakho.” Ngaphambi kokuba afe esiphambanweni, wayeseyiNkosi, kodwa iNkosi yamaJuda; wayenguKristu, iNdodana yomuntu, kodwa engenawo umzimba wenkazimulo. Yingakho ngokombono womuntu abiza uNkulunkulu ngoBaba. Kodwa, lokhu akusho ukuthi bonke ababiza uNkulunkulu ngoBaba bayiNdodana. Ukube bekunjalo, naningeke yini nonke nibe yiNdodana mhla uJesu enifundisa uMthandazo weNkosi? Uma namanje usakholelwa kule mfundiso, ngitshele, ngubani lo ombiza ngoBaba? Uma uthi uJesu, ungubani uYise noJesu kuwe? Ngemva kokuba uJesu esehambile le ndaba kaBaba neNdodana ayibange isaba khona. Leli cebo lasebenza iminyaka ngesikhathi uJesu eseyinyama; ngaphansi kwezimo zonke, ubudlelwane bomuntu oyisidalwa neNkosi yendalo uma ubiza uNkulunkulu ngoBaba. Asikho isikhathi sokuma kwale mfundiso kaZiqu Zintathu owakhiwa uYise, yiNdodana noMoya oNgcwele; yimfundiso yamanga le eyavela ngokuhamba kwesikhathi futhi iyinto engekho!

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 298)

Lokhu kusenza sikhumbule amazwi kaNkulunkulu akuGenesise: “Masenze umuntu ngomfanekiso Wethu, afane Nathi.” Ngenxa yokuthi uNkulunkulu wathi “masenze” umuntu ngomfanekiso “wethu” kuba sengathi ukhuluma nothile; njengoba ethi “masenze” kusho ukuthi uNkulunkulu akayedwa. Ngenxa yalokho, abantu baye bacabanga ngokuthi bangabantu abehlukile, kwabe sekuvela imibono kaYise, yiNdodana noMoya oNgcwele. Pho unjani uYise? INdodana yona injani? UMoya oNgcwele wona unjani? Kungenzeka yini ukuthi abantu benziwa ngomfanekiso wokukodwa kwalokhu okuhlanganisiwe kwaba kuthathu? Uma kunjalo, ingabe isimo somuntu siyefana yini nesikaYise, iNdodana noma uMoya oNgcwele? Kulokhu kokuthathu, umuntu wenziwe ngamuphi umfanekiso? Lo mbono owasungulwa abantu, awulona iqiniso futhi uwunangqondo! Lo mbono wehlukanisa uNkulunkulu oyedwa abe ngoNkulunkulu abaningi. Ngesikhathi uMose abhala ngaso uGenesise, kwakungemva kokudalwa kwabantu kuhlanganise nezinye izinto ezadalwa. Ekuqaleni, ngesikhathi kudalwa umhlaba, uMose wayengekho. Kuthe kamuva, uMose ube esebhala iBhayibheli, ngakho wayengazi kanjani ukuthi nguNkulunkulu owakhuluma la mazwi ezulwini? Akukho ayekwazi mayelana nokudala kukaNkulunkulu umhlaba. EBhayibhelini, kuyiTestamente Elidala, ayiphathwa indaba kaYise, iNdodana noMoya oNgcwele, kukhulunywa ngoNkulunkulu oyedwa kuphela weqiniso, uJehova, lapho aqhuba khona umsebenzi Wakhe kwa-Israyeli. Ubizwa ngamagama ehlukahlukene ngokushintsha kwezinkathi, kodwa lokhu akusho ukuthi igama ngalinye libhekisele kumuntu owehlukile. Uma bekunjalo, bekungeke yini kwenze uNkulunkulu akhiwe yinqwaba yabantu? Okulotshwe kuyiTestamente Elidala kuyimisebenzi kaJehova, isiqalo semisebenzi kaNkulunkulu ngeNkathi Yomthetho. Kwakuyimisebenzi kaNkulunkulu leyo, lapho akhuluma khona, kwaba njalo, nalapho ashaya khona umthetho, wama. Akukho lapho ezibiza khona ngoYise ozosebenza, futhi akukho lapho eprofetha khona ngokuza kweNdodana yakhe ezosindisa isintu. Ngesikhathi uJesu eza emhlabeni kwathiwa, uNkulunkulu ube yinyama ukuze asindise sonke isintu, akuzange kufike iNdodana. Njengoba izinkathi zingafani kanjalo, nemisebenzi kaNkulunkulu Uqobo ayifani, wenza imisebenzi Yakhe ngezindlela ezehlukahlukene. Ngaleyo ndlela, ubuyena buyashintsha. Abantu bakholelwa ukuthi uJehova unguYise kaJesu, kodwa uJesu wakwenqaba lokhu, wathi: “Asizange sihlukaniswe ngokuthi Baba neNdodana; Mina noBaba osezulwini simunye. UBaba ukimi nami ngikuBaba; lapho abantu bebona iNdodana, babona uBaba osemazulwini.” Siphetha ngokuthi, kungakhathaliseki ukuthi uBaba noma yiNdodana, banguMoya owodwa, ababona abantu abahlukene. Uma umuntu ezama ukuchaza, izinto zibanzima kakhulu ukucacisa indaba yabantu abathathu abahlukene, kanye nobuhlobo obuphakathi kukaYise, iNdodana noMoya oNgcwele. Lapho abantu bekhuluma ngoNkulunkulu ohlukene akumenzi yini angabi ngokoqobo? Umuntu uze amehlukanise ngezigaba, umuntu wokuqala, owesibili nowesithathu; lena kumane nje kuyimibono yabantu, yimibono engenabo ubufakazi obuphathekayo, futhi engekho nhlobo. Uma umbuza lo muntu ukuthi; “Bangaki labo Nkulunkulu?” uyothi kunoNkukunkulu oZiqu zintathu onguYise, iNdodana noMoya oNgcwele: uNkulunkulu oyedwa weqiniso. Uma umbuza futhi ukuthi: “Ungubani uYise?” uyothi: “UYise, uMoya kaNkulunkulu osezulwini; uphethe konke, futhi uMnikazi wakho konke okusezulwini.” “UJehova yena, ingabe unguMoya” bese ephendula ngokuthi: “Yebo!” Bese-ke umbuza ukuthi “Ingubani iNdodana?” Uyothi: “Hawu, iyiNdodana kaNkulunkulu. Bese uyambuza ukuthi “UJesu wavelaphi.” Uyothi: “UJesu wazalwa uMariya ngoMoya oNgcwele.” “Ingabe isimo Sakhe asiwona uMoya? Imisebenzi yakhe ayifakazeli yini ukusebenza koMoya oNgcwele? UJehova unguMoya, kanjalo nesimo sikaJesu. Ezinsukwini zokugcina, akukona yini ukuthi kusasebenza uMoya; ngakho bangaba kanjani abantu abahlukene? Akuwona yini uMoya kaNkulunkulu oqhubeka usebenza ngezindlela ezahlukile?” Kanjalo awukho umahluko kulaba bantu. UJesu wazalwa ngoMoya, futhi ngokungangabazeki, imisebenzi Yakhe yayifana ncamashi nemisebenzi yoMoya oNgcwele. Esigabeni sokuqala somsebenzi kaJehova, akazange abe yinyama futhi akabonakalanga kubantu. Ngakho abantu abakubonanga ukubonakala Kwakhe. Kungakhathaliseki ukuthi wayemkhulu noma emude kangakanani, wayesewuMoya, uNkulunkulu Uqobo waqale wadala abantu, okuwukuthi uMoya kaNkulunkulu. Lapho ekhuluma nabantu esemafwini, wayenguMoya. Akekho owayemazi; kuze kwaba yiNkathi Yomusa lapho uMoya kaNkulunkulu uphenduka inyama eJudiya lapho abantu baqala khona ukumbona okokuqala uNkulunkulu esesimweni somuntu njengomJuda. Kodwa abantu babengawuqondi umuzwa wokuba kwakhe nguJehova. Kunjalo, wazalwa ngokoMoya oNgcwele, okungukuthi, wazalwa uMoya kaJehova Uqobo nokuthi uJesu wazalwa engumfanekiso woMoya kaNkulunkulu. Lokho abantu abaqale bakubona uMoya oNgcwele wehla njengejuba, wehlela phezu kukaJesu; kwakungewona uMoya owehlukile kuJesu, kepha kwakunguMoya oNgcwele. Ingabe-ke uMoya kaJesu noMoya oNgcwele bahlukene? Uma uJesu enguJesu, iNdodana, noMoya oNgcwele unguMoya oNgcwele, kodwa bangaba munye kanjani? Umsebenzi wawungeke uqhubeke uma kunjalo. UMoya okuJesu, uMoya esezulwini kanye noMoya kaJehova yinto eyodwa. Lo Moya ungabizwa ngokuthi uMoya oNgcwele, uMoya kaNkulunkulu, amandla ayisiphekupheku, uMoya oyingqayizivele. UMoya kaNkulunkulu ungafeza umsebenzi omningi. Ukwazi ukudala umhlaba, uphinde awubhubhise ngozamcolo; ukwazi ukuhlenga sonke isintu, unganqoba futhi ubhubhise sonke isintu. Wonke lo msebenzi wenziwa nguNkulunkulu Uqobo futhi akekho obengakwazi ukuwenza esikhundleni sikaNkulunkulu ngaphandle Kwakhe. UMoya Wakhe ungabizwa ngegama likaJehova nelikaJesu kuhlanganise nelikaMninimandla Onke. UyiNkosi noKristu. Ungaba nayiNdodana yomuntu. Usemazulwini nasemhlabeni; usezindaweni eziphezulu kakhulu emkhathini nasezixukwini. Uwukuphela kweNkosi yamazulu nomhlaba! Kusukela ngenkathi yokudala kuze kube manje, lo msebenzi ubulokhu wenziwa uMoya kaNkulunkulu Uqobo. Emisebenzini yasezulwini noma enyameni, yonke le misebenzi yenziwa yilo Moya Wakhe. Zonke izidalwa, kungakhathaliseki ukuthi zisezulwini noma emhlabeni zisentendeni yesandla sikaMninimandla Onke; konke lokhu kuwumsebenzi kaNkulunkulu Uqobo futhi akekho ongakwazi ukuwenza esikhundleni Sakhe. Emazulwini, unguMoya abuye abe nguNkulunkulu Uqobo; phakathi kwabantu, uyinyama kodwa aqhubeka enguNkulunkulu Uqobo. Nakuba ebizwa ngamagama amaningi, usenguye Uqobo futhi yonke imisebenzi Yakhe ibonakalisa amandla oMoya Wakhe. Ukusindiswa kwabantu ngokubethelwa esiphambanweni kwakuwukusebenza koMoya Wakhe, kanye nokushumayela ezizweni zonke nasemhlabeni wonke ngezinsuku zokugcina. Ngaso sonke, isikhathi uNkulunkulu angabizwa ngokuthi uMninimandla Onke, uNkulunkulu weqiniso, uNkulunkulu okuwuphela Kwakhe. Ngakho ayikho imfundiso yabantu abahlukene, ingasaphathwa-ke le mfundiso kaYise, iNdodana noMoya oNgcwele! KunoNkulunkulu oyedwa ezulwini nasemhlabeni!

Kucashunwe embhalweni othi “Ingabe UZiqu Zintathu Into Ekhona?” encwadini ethi Izwi Livela Lisenyameni

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Ansukuzonke (Okucashuniwe 299)

Uhlelo kukaNkulunkulu lokuqondisa ludonsa iminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha futhi luhlukaniswe lwaba yizinkathi ezintathu zokuhluka ngokomsebenzi Wakhe: Inkathi yokuqala ibizwa ngokuthi yiNkathi Yomthetho YeTestamente Elidala; eyesibili yiNkathi Yomusa; kanti eyesithathu eyokugcina iphakathi nezinsuku zokugcina—yiNkathi Yombuso. Enkathini ngayinye kunesiqu esihlukile esivezwayo. Lokhu kwenzeka ngenxa yokwehluka komsebenzi, okusho izimfuno zomsebenzi. Isigaba sokuqala somsebenzi ngeNkathi Yomthetho senzeka kwa-Israyeli, isigaba sesibili senziwa lapho kuphothulwa inqubo yokusindisa kwaJuda. Le nqubo yenzeka ngokuthi uJesu azalwe ngoMoya oNgcwele njengeNdodana. Konke lokhu kwenzeka ngenxa yemfuneko yomsebenzi. Ezinsukwini zokugcina, uNkulunkulu ufisa ukuwandisa umsebenzi Wakhe uze ufinyelele kwabeZizwe futhi kuzuzwe bonke abantu khona, ukuze igama Lakhe libe likhulu phakathi kwabo bonke. Ufisa ukuqondisa umuntu ekuqondeni nasekungeneni kulo lonke iqiniso. Wonke lo msebenzi wenziwa nguMoya owodwa. Nakuba ekwenza lokhu ngezindlela azingefani, imigomo yomsebenzi yona ayishintshi. Lapho uhlolisisa imigomo nohlobo lomsebenzi abawenzile, uzokwazi ukuthi konke kwenziwe uMoya owodwa. Kodwa abanye basangase bathi: “UYise unguYise; iNdodana iyiNdodana; uMoya oNgcwele unguMoya oNgcwele, ekugcineni, bazokwenziwa babe munye.” Kodwa ungabenza kanjani babe munye? UYise noMoya oNgcwele kungenziwa kanjani kube munye? Uma kokubili kuye kwahlanganiswa, kungakhathaliseki ukuthi kuhlanganiswe kanjani, ngeke yini kuqhubeke kuyizingxenye ezimbili? Uma uthi benziwa babe Munye, akukhona yini lokho ukuhlanganisa izinto ezimbili? Kodwa bebengeve yini bebabili ngaphambi nokuhlanganiswa, isimo soMoya ngamunye wehlukile, futhi imiMoya emibili ngeke ihlanganiswe. UMoya awufani nento ephathekayo futhi awufani nalutho olukhona emhlabeni. Abantu bathi, uYise unguMoya, iNdodana nayo ingumoya kanye nawo uMoya bathi ungomunye uMoya, bese bethi lemiMoya iyahlanganiswa engilazini yamanzi kube uMoya owodwa, akukona yini ukuthi lapha kuhlanganiswe izinto ezintathu? Lena yincazelo engamanga ngokusobala! Lo Nkulunkulu akahlukaniswa phakathi? UYise, yiNdodana noMoya kungahlanganiswa kanjani kube kunye? Akuzona yini izingxenye ezintathu zezimo ezehlukene? Kusekhona nalabo abathi, “UNkulunkulu akashongo yini ngokusobala ukuthi uJesu uyiNdodana Yakhe ethandekayo?” UJesu uyiNdodana kaNkulunkulu ethandekayo, ajabula kakhulu ngayo—lokhu kwakhulunywa nguNkulunkulu Uqobo. Empeleni uNkulunkulu wayekhuluma Ngaye, ngendlela eyehlukile, kufana ngokuthi uMoya osezulwini unikeza ubufakazi bukaNkulunkulu esesimweni somuntu Ngokwakhe. UJesu enguNkulunkulu osesimweni somuntu Ngokwakhe, hhayi iNdodana Yakhe esezulwini. Uyakuqonda lokho? La mazwi kaJesu athi: “NgikuBaba, noBaba uKimina,” awasho yini ukuthi banguMoya owodwa? Akukona yini ukuthi ngokwesimo somuntu sikaNkulunkulu wazihlukanisela ezulwini nasemhlabeni? Eqinisweni, bamunye; kungakhathaliseki ukuthi isimo sinjani, kumanje nje kunguNkulunkulu ofakaza ngaye Ngokwakhe. Uyaziguqula ngokushintsha kwenkathi ngayinye, ngokuya kwemfuneko yomsebenzi ngokwezigaba ezehlukahlukene ngokwentando Yakhe, njengoba namagama abantu abambiza ngawo nawo eshintsha. Lapho eqala isigaba sokuqala somsebenzi Wakhe, wayebizwa ngokuthi uJehova, uMalusi wama-Israyeli. Esigabeni sesibili, yawebizwa ngokuthi iNkosi noKristu. Kodwa ngaleso sikhathi, uMoya osezulwini wathi uyiNdodana ethandekayo kaNkulunkulu, awushongo ukuthi uwukuphela kweNdodana kaNkulunkulu. Lokhu akwenzekanga. UNkulunkulu angaba kanjani nomntwana oyedwa? Ingabe uNkulunkulu waphenduka waba umuntu? Ngenxa yokuthi wayekwesinye isimo, wayebizwa ngokuthi yiNdodana kaNkulunkulu ethandekayo, ngenxa yalokhu, kube sekuvela ubuhlobo phakathi kukaYise neNdodana. Lokhu kwakubangelwa ukwehlukana kwezulu nomhlaba. UJesu wathandaza esesimweni senyama. Njengoba ayembethe inyama yobuntu obujwayeleke kangaka, wakhuluma la mazwi esesimweni somuntu: “Umzimba wami ufana nodaliwe. Njengoba ngembatha wona ukuze ngize emhlabeni, manje ngikude kakhulu nezulu.” Ngenxa yaleso sizathu, wayengathandaza kuNkulunkulu uYise esesimweni sokuba wumuntu. Lona kwakungumsebenzi Wakhe, ukuze kufezeke injongo kaNkulunkulu. Ngeke sithi akayena uNkulunkulu ngenxa yokuthi wathandaza kuYise esesimweni somuntu. Nakuba ebizwa ngeNdodana kaNkulunkulu ethandekayo, usenguye uNkulunkulu, usesimweni sokuba wuMoya futhi uyingxenye yawo. Abantu bazibuza ukuthi kungani ethandaza uma enguNkulunkulu. Kungenxa yokuthi usesemweni senyama, uNkulunkulu uphila enyameni, akuwona umoya osezulwini. Abantu bathi uYise, iNdodana noMoya oNgcwele kwakha uNkulunkulu oyedwa. Bobathathu benziwa bayahlanganiswa babe munye babizwe ngoNkulunkulu, ngenxa yalokho, ingabe usenawo amandla amakhulu. Kunalabo futhi abathi kungenxa yaleso sizathu enguMoya onamandla. Lapho iNdodana ithandaza ngokuza kwayo, empeleni yayikhuluma isesimweni somuntu wenyama. Ngoba inyama ayiphelele, yayingaphelele futhi inobuthaka lapho ingena enyameni, futhi yayihlupheka njengoba yayiqhubeka nomsebenzi Wayo enyameni. Yingakho yathandaza kuNkulunkulu uYise ngaphambi kokubethelwa Kwayo, futhi yathandaza izikhathi eziningi ngaphambi kwalokho. Yathandaza inabafundi Bayo; yathandaza iyodwa entabeni; yathandaza isesikebheni sokudoba; yathandaza phakathi kwezixuku; yathandaza lapho ihlephula isinkwa; futhi yathandaza lapho ibusisa abantu. Kungani yenza kanjalo? Ngenxa yokuthi yayithandaza kuMoya, kuNkulunkulu ezulwini, isesimweni senyama. Ngakho ngokombono wabantu, uJesu waba yiNdodana kuleso sigaba somsebenzi, nokho, phakathi nalesi sigaba akathandazi, kungani? Kungenxa yokuthi into ayibeka kuqala umsebenzi wezwi, nesahlulelo kanye nokusola kwalo. Asikho isidingo sokuba athandaze, futhi inkonzo Yakhe ukukhuluma. Akabethelwa esiphambanweni, futhi labo abasemagunyeni abambambi. Uyaqhubeka nomsebenzi wakhe. Lapho ethandaza, wayethandaza kuNkulunkulu uYise ngokuza kombuso wamazulu, ukwenziwa kwentando kaYise kanye nokuza komsebenzi. Kuleli zinga, umbuso wawusufikile kakade, ingabe-ke wayesenaso isidingo sokuthandaza? Umsebenzi wakhe, ukuqeda inkathi, futhi azisekho ezinye izinkathi ezintsha, ingabe-ke sikhona isidingo sokuthandazela isigaba esilandelayo? Empeleni, asikho isidingo salokho!

Kuningi ukuphikisana ezincazelweni zabantu. Empeleni, lena kumane kuyimibono yabantu; engahlolisisiwe, ningase nicabange ukuthi iyiqiniso. Anazi yini ukuthi le mfundiso kaZiqu Zintathu iwumbono wabantu? Ulwazi lomuntu aluphelele. Umbono wakhe uhlale unganembile, futhi umuntu unemibono eminingi; lokhu kufakazela ukuthi usidalwa esingumuntu ngeke sikwazi ukuchaza imisebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Kuningi okusezingqondweni zabantu, kodwa okuphikisana neqiniso. Ingabe indlela yakho yokucabanga iyakubonisa imisebenzi kaNkulunkulu? Uyayiqonda yini yonke imisebenzi kaJehova? Ingabe nguwe yini njengomuntu okwazi ukukubona konke, noma ingabe nguNkulunkulu okwazi ukubona konke, kusukela phakade kuze kube phakade? Ingabe nguwe okwazi ukubona ezikhathini zakudala kuze kube sesikhathini esizayo, noma ingabe nguNkulunkulu okwazi ukwenza kanjalo? Ngakho-ke uthini? Ungamchaza kanjani uNkulunkulu? Futhi isekelwephi leyo ncazelo yakho Ngaye? Ingabe wena unguNkulunkulu? Amazulu nomhlaba nakho konke okukuwo kwadalwa uNkulunkulu. Akuwena owenza lezi zinto, pho kungani unikeza izincazelo ezingelona iqiniso? Ingabe namanje usakholelwa kuZiqu Zintathu? Awucabangi ukuthi le nkolelo iyinkinga? Kungaba kuhle ukuba manje ukholelwe kuNkulunkulu oyedwa, hhayi kwabathathu. Kuhle ukuba ngukukhanya, ngoba umthwalo weNkosi ulula.
