Okukhethwe Eziqeshini Ezine Zezwi LikaNkulunkulu Esihlokweni esithi “Imfihlakalo Yokuba Senyameni”

1. ENkathini Yomusa, uJohane walungiselela uJesu indlela. Wayengeke akwazi ukwenza umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uqobo futhi wamane wafeza umsebenzi womuntu. Nakuba uJohane alungisela iNkosi indlela, wayengeke amele uNkulunkulu; wayengumuntu nje kuphela owayesetshenziswa uMoya oNgcwele. Ngemva kokubhabhathizwa kukaJesu, “uMoya oNgcwele wehlela Kuye njengejuba.” Wabe eseqala umsebenzi Wakhe, okungukuthi, waqala ukwenza inkonzo kaKristu. Yingakho athatha isimo sikaNkulunkulu, ngoba wayevela kuNkulunkulu. Kungakhathaleki ukuthi lwalunjani ukholo Lwakhe ngaphambi kwalokhu—mhlawumbe ngezinye izikhathi lwaluntekenteke kokunye luqinile—konke lokho kwakuwukuphila Kwakhe kokuba umuntu ojwayelekile ngaphambi kokuba enze inkonzo Yakhe. Ngemva kokubhabhathizwa (ukugcotshwa), ngokushesha waba namandla kanye nenkazimulo kaNkulunkulu Kuye, wabe eseqala inkonzo Yakhe. Wayesengenza izibonakaliso nezimanga, enze nezimangaliso, wayenamandla negunya, njengoba wayesebenza egameni likaNkulunkuluuqobo; wenza umsebenzi kaMoya esikhundleni Sakhe futhi wazwakalisa izwi likaMoya; ngakho wayenguNkulunkulu uqobo. Lokhu kuyinto engenakuphikwa. UJohane wasetshenziwa uMoya oNgcwele. Wayengeke amele uNkulunkulu, futhi kwakungeke kwenzeke ukuba amelel uNkulunkulu. Uma wayefisa ukwenza kanjalo, uMoya oNgcwele wawungeke umvumele, ngoba wayengeke awenze umsebenzi uNkulunkulu uqobo ayezimisele ukuwufeza. Mhlawumbe kwakukuningi okwakukuye, okwakuyintando yomuntu noma kukhona okwakwehlukile kuye; kunoma yiziphi izimo, wayengeke akwazi ukummela ngokuqondile uNkulunkulu. Amaphutha neziphambeko zakhe kwakumele yena kuphela, kodwa umsebenzi wakhe wawumele uMoya oNgcwele. Kodwa, awukwazi ukuthi konke ayeyikho kwakumele uNkulunkulu. Ingabe ukuphambuka namaphutha akhe nakho kwakumele uNkulunkulu? Ukuba nephutha ekumeleni umuntu kuyinto ejwayelekile, kodwa uma ehluka ekumeleni uNkulunkulu lokho bekungeke yini kuhlazise uNkulunkulu? Ingabe lokho bekungeke kube wukuhlambalaza uMoya oNgcwele? UMoya oNgcwele awumvumeli umuntu ukuba abe sendaweni kaNkulunkulu ngokuthanda kwakhe, ngisho noma ngabe udunyiswa ngabanye. Uma engeyena uNkulunkulu, lokho kuyosho ukuthi angeke akwazi ukuhlala emile ekugcineni. UMoya oNgcwele awumvumeli umuntu ukuba amele uNkulunkulu ngokuthanda kwakhe! Ngokwesibonelo, uMoya oNgcwele wanikeza ubufakazi kuJohane waphinde wembula ukuthi nguye oyolungisela uJesu indlela, kodwa umsebenzi owawenziwe uMoya oNgcwele kuye, wawusesilinganisweni esifanele. Konke uJohane ayekuceliwe ukuba akwenze kwakuwukuba yivulandlela likaJesu, amlungiselele indlela. Okusho ukuthi, uMoya oNgcwele wavumela umsebenzi wakhe wokulungisa indlela kuphela, futhi wamvumela ukuba enze umsebenzi onjalo kuphela, hhayi okunye. UJohane wamela u-Eliya, umphrofethi owayelungise indlela. Lokhu kwesekwa uMoya oNgcwele; uma nje umsebenzi wakhe kwakusewukulungisa indlela, uMoya oNgcwele wawumvumela. Nokho, ukuba wayethe unguNkulunkulu uqobo futhi uzele ukuzoqedela umsebenzi wokuhlenga, uMoya oNgcwele kwakuyomele umqondise. Kungakhathaleki ukuthi wawumkhulu kangakanani umsebenzi kaJohane, nokuthi wayevunyelwe uMoya oNgcwele, umsebenzi wakhe wahlala ungaphakathi kwemingcele. Kuyiqiniso ngempela ukuthi umsebenzi wakhe wawuvunyelwe uMoya oNgcwele, kodwa amandla ayewanikiwe ngaleso sikhathi ayephelela ekulungiseni kwakhe indlela. Wayengeke nhlobo enze omunye umsebenzi, ngoba wayenguJohane owalungisa indlela kuphela, hhayi uJesu. Ngakho, ubufakazi boMoya oNgcwele busemqoka, kodwa umsebenzi umuntu avunyelwe nguMoya oNgcwele ukuba awenze ubaluleke kakhulu.

2. Kunabanye abathile abanemimoya emibi futhi abalokhu bememeza bethi, “NginguNkulunkulu!” Nokho ekugcineni, abakwazi ukuhlala bemile, ngoba basebenza egameni longafanele. Bamele uSathane futhi uMoya oNgcwele awubanaki. Nokho kungakhathaleki ukuthi uziphakamisa kangakanani noma ukuthi umemeza kakhulu kangakanani, usewumuntu owadalwa futhi uyilowo ongokaSathane. Angimemezi, nginguNkulunkulu, ngiyiNdodana kaNkulunkulu ethandekayo! Kodwa umsebenzi engiwenzayo okaNkulunkulu. Ingabe kudingeka ngimemeze? Asikho isidingo sokuphakanyiswa. UNkulunkulu uzenzela Yena mathupha umsebenzi futhi akadingi ukuba umuntu amnike isikhundla noma isiqu sokumhlonipha, futhi umsebenzi Wakhe wanele ukuba umele isiqu kanye nesikhundla Sakhe. Ngaphambi kokubhabhathizwa Kwakhe, ngabe uJesu wayengeyena uNkulunkulu uqobo? Ingabe wayengeyena uNkulunkulu osenyameni? Ngempela ngeke kuthiwe waba yindodana eyodwa kaNkulunkulu kuphela ngemva kokuba esefakazelwe? Ingabe yayingekho indoda okwakuthiwa nguJesu esikhathini eside ngaphambi kokuba aqale umsebenzi Wakhe? Awukwazi ukuveza izindlela ezintsha noma umele uMoya. Awukwazi ukuveza umsebenzi kaMoya noma amazwi awakhulumayo. Awukwazi ukwenza umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uqobo noma okaMoya.

3. Ngisho nomuntu osetshenziswa nguMoya oNgcwele akakwazi ukumela uNkulunkulu uqobo. Akukhona kuphela ukuthi lo muntu akakwazi ukumela uNkulunkulu, kodwa nomsebenzi wakhe awukwazi ukummela ngokuqondile uNkulunkulu. Lokho kusho ukuthi, izinto umuntu azaziyo azikwazi ukubekwa ngokuqondile phakathi kokuphatha kukaNkulunkulu futhi akukwazi ukumelela ukuphatha kukaNkulunkulu. Wonke umsebenzi uNkulunkulu uqobo awenzayo ungumsebenzi azimisele ngokuwenza ngohlelo Lwakhe lokuphatha futhi uqondiswe ekuphatheni okukhulu. Umsebenzi owenziwe ngumuntu (umuntu osetshenziswe uMoya oNgcwele) ubonisa lokho akwaziyo. Uthola indlela entsha yokwenza izinto kulena eyahanjwa abamandulelayo futhi iholela abafowabo nodadewabo ngaphansi kokuqondisa kukaMoya oNgcwele. Into enikezwa yilaba bantu yinto abayaziyo noma imibhalo yoomoya yabantu bomoya. Nakuba besetshenziswe uMoya oNgcwele, umsebenzi walabo bantu awufiki nakufika emsebenzini omkhulu wokuphatha wohlelo lweminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha. Bamane nje baphakanyiswe nguMoya oNgcwele ngezikhathi ezehlukene ukuze bahole abantu endleleni kaMoya oNgcwele baze bafeze umsebenzi wabo noma baze bafe. Umsebenzi abawenzayo ungowokulungisa kuphela indlela efanele kaNkulunkulu uqobo noma ukuqhuba okukodwa ekuphatheni kukaNkulunkulu uqobo emhlabeni. Abantu abanjalo abakwazi ukwenza umsebenzi ophakeme ngaphansi kokuphatha Kwakhe, futhi abakwazi ukusungula izindlela ezintsha futhi kukancane ukuba baphethe wonke umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu wenkathi edlule. Ngakho, umsebenzi abawenzayo umela kuphela isidalwa esenza umsebenzi waso, ngeke umele uNkulunkulu uqobo enza inkonzo Yakhe. Lokhu kungenxa yokuthi umsebenzi abawenzayo awufani nalowo owenziwa uNkulunkulu uqobo. Umsebenzi wokungenisa inkathi entsha awukwazi ukwenziwa ngumuntu endaweni kaNkulunkulu. Awukwazi ukwenziwa yinoma ngubani ngaphandle kukaNkulunkulu uqobo. Wonke umsebenzi ongenziwa ngumuntu uwukwenza umsebenzi njengomunye wezidalwa futhi wenziwa ngokuholwa noma ukukhanyiselwa nguMoya oNgcwele. Ukuqondiswa okunikezwa abantu abanjalo yindlela yokuphila kwansuku zonke nokuthi umuntu wenza kanjani ngokuvumelana nentando kaNkulunkulu. Umsebenzi womuntu awubandakanyi nokukodwa phakathi kokuphatha kukaNkulunkulu noma ukumela umsebenzi woMoya. … Ngakho, ngenxa yokuthi umsebenzi womuntu osetshenziswa uMoya oNgcwele awufani nomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uqobo, ubunjalo babo nokuthi nokuthi basebenza egameni likabani, nakho kuhlukile. Lokhu kwenziwa ukuthi umsebenzi uMoya oNgcwele ohlose ukuwenza wehlukile, ngalokho unikeza iziqu nezikhundla ezingefani kubo bonke abasebenzayo. Abantu abasetshenziswa uMoya oNgcwele bangase bayenze eminye imisebenzi emisha futhi bangase basuse eminye imisebenzi eyenziwa enkathini yaphambili, kodwa umsebenzi wabo awukwazi ukuveza isimo nentando kaNkulunkulu enkathini entsha. Basebenzela kuphela ukuthatha umsebenzi wenkathi edlule, hhayi ukwenza umsebenzi wenkathi entsha ukuze basimelele ngokuqondile isimo sikaNkulunkulu uqobo. Nokho, kungakhathaliseki ukuthi mingaki imikhuba esiphelelwe yisikhathi abayiqedayo noma emisha abayethulayo basamelela abantu nezinto ezidaliwe. Lapho uNkulunkulu uqobo enza umsebenzi, kodwa, akamane nje esidlangalaleni amemezele ukuphela kwemikhuba yenkathi endala noma amemezele ngokuqondile isiqalo senkathi entsha. Uyaqonda acace emsebenzini Wakhe. Uyaqonda lapho enza umsebenzi awuhlosile; okungukuthi, ukuveza ngqo lokho asuke ekwenzile, uwenza ngokuqondile umsebenzi njengoba ebehlosile ekuqaleni, aveze ubuyena kanye nesimo Sakhe. Njengoba umuntu ewubona, isimo Sakhe kanye nomsebenzi awenzayo akufani nokwangenkathi edlule. Nokho, ngokukaNkulunkulu uqobo, lokhu kuwukuqhubeka nje nokuthuthukisa umsebenzi Wakhe. Lapho uNkulunkulu uqobo esebenza, uwaveza wonke amazwi Akhe futhi alethe umsebenzi omusha.

4. UJohane wazalwa ngesethembiso, futhi igama lakhe lanikezwa yingelosi. Ngaleso sikhathi, abanye babefuna ukumqamba igama likayise uZakariya kodwa unina waphumela obala wathi, “Le ngane angeke ibizwe ngalelo gama. Kufanele ibizwe ngokuthi uJohane.” Konke lokhu kwakuqondiswe nguMoya oNgcwele. Ngakho kungani uJohane engabizwangwa ngokuthi uNkulunkulu? Igama likaJesu nalo lalingaphansi kokuqondiswa nguMoya oNgcwele futhi wazalwa ngoMoya oNgcwele futhi ngesethembiso sikaMoya oNgcwele. UJesu wayenguNkulunkulu, uKristu, futhi eyiNdodana yomuntu. Umsebenzi kaJohane nawo wawumkhulu, kodwa kungani yena kungashiwongo ukuthi unguNkulunkulu? Kanti kwakuyimuphi umehluko phakathi komsebenzi owenziwa uJesu nalowo owenziwa nguJohane? Ingabe isizathu kuphela ukuthi uJohane kwakufanele alungise indlela kaJesu? Noma kungenxa yokuthi uNkulunkulu wayekunqumele ngaphambili? Nakuba uJohane waphinde wathi, “Phendukani: ngokuba umbuso wezulu ususondele,” waphinde washumayela ivangeli lombuso wezulu, umsebenzi wakhe wawungajulile kangako futhi wawuphethe isiqalo nje. Ngokuqhathaniseka nalokho, uJesu waletha inkathi entsha futhi waqeda inkathi endala kodwa futhi wagcwalisa umthetho weTestamente Elidala. Umsebenzi awenza wawumkhulu kunokaJohane futhi weza ukuzokhulula sonke isintu—wenza leso sigaba somsebenzi. UJohane yena wamane nje walungisa indlela. Nakuba umsebenzi wakhe wawumkhulu, amazwi akhe emaningi, nabafundi abamlandela babebaningi, umsebenzi wakhe awuzange wenze okungaphezu nje kokuba ulethele abantu isiqalo esisha. Abantu abazange bathole kuye ukuphila, indlela noma amaqiniso ajulile ngisho nokuthola ngaye ukuqonda mayelana nentando kaNkulunkulu. UJohane wayengumphrofethi omkhulu (u-Eliya) owavula indlela entsha yomsebenzi kaJesu walungiselela okhethiweyo; wayehambela phambili iNkathi Yomusa. Izindaba ezinje ngeke zimane zibonakale nje ngokuqaphela ukubonakala komuntu. Ikakhulukazi uJohane wenza umsebenzi omkhulu; ngaphezu kwalokho waba khona ngenxa yesithembiso sikaMoya oNgcwele futhi umsebenzi wakhe wavunyelwa nguye uMoya oNgcwele. Ngaleyo ndlela, ukuhlukanisa phakathi kobunjalo babo kungenziwa ngokubuka umsebenzi wabo, ngoba ukubukeka kwangaphandle komuntu akusho lutho ngengqikithi yakhe, futhi umuntu akakwazi ukuqinisekisa ubufakazi bangempela ngoMoya oNgcwele. Umsebenzi owenziwa nguJohane nalowo owenziwa nguJesu wawungafani futhi izimvelo zawo zazingefani. Yilokho okufanele kunqume ukuthi unguNkulunkulu noma cha. Umsebenzi kaJesu wawungukuqala, ukuqhubeka, ukuphetha kanye nokufeza. Leso naleso sinyathelo kulezi sasenziwa nguJesu, kanti umsebenzi kaJohane wona wawungowesiqalo. Ekuqaleni uJesu wasabalalisa ivangeli washumayela indlela yokuphenduka, ngemva kwalokho wabhabhathiza, welapha izifo futhi waxosha amadimoni. Ekugcineni, wakhulula isintu esonweni futhi waqedela umsebenzi wakhe waleyo nkathi. Washumayeza abantu futhi wasabalalisa ivangeli lombuso wezulu kuzo zonke izindawo. Lokhu kwakufana nakuJohane, kodwa umahluko kwakuwukuthi uJesu owangenisa inkathi entsha futhi waletha iNkathi Yomusa kumuntu. Emlonyeni Wakhe kwaphuma izwi lalokho umuntu okufanele akwenze nendlela umuntu okumele ayilandele eNkathini Yomusa futhi ekugcineni, waqedela umsebenzi wokukhulula. Umsebenzi onjalo wawungeke wenziwe nguJohane. Ngakho, kwakunguJesu owenza umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uqobo futhi nguye onguNkulunkulu uqobo futhi omele uNkulunkulu ngokuquondile.

5. Uma ungaboni ukuthi isigaba somsebenzi namuhla ngesikaNkulunkulu uqobo, kungenxa yokuthi weswele umbono. Noma kunjalo, awukwazi ukusiphika lesi sigaba somsebenzi; ukungakwazi kwakho ukusibona akusho ukuthi uMoya oNgcwele awusebenzi noma umsebenzi Wakhe unephutha. Abanye baze babheke ngisho umsebenzi wamanje bawuqhathanise nokaJesu oseBhayibhelini futhi baze basebenzise noma yikuphi okungahambisani ukuze baphike lesi sigaba somsebenzi. Ingabe lesi akusona isenzo somuntu ongaboni emehlweni? Konke okulotshwe eBhayibhelini kunomkhawulo futhi akukwazi ukuveza yonke imisebenzi kaNkulunkulu. AmaVangeli aMane anezahluko ezingaphansi kweziyikhulu uma sezihlanganisiwe okubhalwe kuz0 isibalo esithile sezigameko njengalapho uJesu eqalekisa isihlahla somkhiwane, ukuphika iNkosi kukaPetru izikhathi ezintathu ukubonakala kukaJesu kubafundi Bakhe ngemva kokubethelwa nokuvuswa kwakhe, ukufundisa ngokuzila ukudla, ukufundisa ngomthandazo, ukufundisa ngesahlukaniso somshado, ngokuzalwa nangolibo lukaJesu, ukuqoka kukaJesu abafundi nokunye. Lena yimibhalo embalwa, kodwa abantu bayikhonze njengamagugu, baze baqinisekise imisebenzi yanamuhla ngokuyiqhathanisa nayo. Baze bakholwe ukuthi uJesu wenza okuningi kangaka kuphela emva kokuzalwa Kwakhe kuphela. Kunjengokuthi bakholwa wukuthi uNkulunkulu angenza lokho kuphela, awukho omunye umsebenzi ongaba khona. Akubona ubuphukuphuku lobo?

6. Abantu bakholwa wukuthi uNkulunkulu oza eyinyama akaphili njengoba kuphila umuntu; bakholwa wukuthi uhlanzekile ngisho engazange axubhe noma ahlambe ubuso ngoba ungumuntu ongcwele. Ingabe lokhu akukhona nje ukucabanga komuntu? Akukho lapho iBhayibheli likhuluma khona ngempilo kaJesu eyindoda, likhuluma ngomsebenzi Wakhe kuphela, kodwa lokhu akusho ukuthi wayengenabo ubuntu obejwayelekile noma akazange aphile impilo yomuntu eyejwayelekile ngaphambi kokuba abe neminyaka engama-30. Waqala umsebenzi Wakhe ngokusemthethweni eneminyaka engama-29, kodwa angeke uyiphike impilo Yakhe njengendoda eyejwayelekile ngaphambi kwalowo nyaka wobudala. IBhayibheli livele laseqa leso sigaba ekuqopheni kwalo; njengoba kwakuyimpilo Yakhe njengomuntu ovamile hhayi isigaba somsebenzi Wakhe wobunkulunkulu, sasingekho isidingo sokuba sibhalwe phansi. Ngoba ngaphambi kokubhabhathizwa kukaJesu, uMoya oNgcwele wawungakaze usebenze zisuka nje, kodwa wamgcina ephila njengendoda ejwayelekile kwaze kwaba wusuku lapho sekufanele uJesu enze inkonzo Yakhe. Nakuba wayenguNkulunkulu osenyameni, wadlula ezigabeni zokukhula njengawo wonke umuntu ojwayelekile. Lesi sigaba asifakwanga eBhayibhelini, ngoba sasingeke sibe usizo olutheni ekukhuleni komuntu. Ngaphambi kokubhabhathizwa Kwakhe kunesigaba angembulwanga kuso futhi angenzanga nezibonakaliso kanye nezimangaliso. Kungemva kokubhabhathizwa kukaJesu lapho aqala khona yonke imisebenzi yokuhlenga abantu, umsebenzi owawunothe ngomusa, ngeqiniso, ngothando nangesihe. Ukuqala kwalo msebenzi kwakuwukuqala kweNkathi Yomusa; ngaleso sizathu, walotshwa phansi futhi wadluliselwa kule nkathi yamanje. … Ngaphambi kokuba uJesu aqale inkonzo Yakhe, noma njengoba kushiwo eBhayibhelini, ngaphambi kokuba umoya wehlele Kuye, uJesu wayengumuntu ojwayelekile futhi enobuntu obubonisa izimpawu ezincane zokuba namandla angavamile. Lapho kwehla uMoya oNgcwele, okuwukuthi, lapho eqala ukwenza inkonzo Yakhe, waphiwa namandla amaningi angavamile. Ngalokhu umuntu uphethe ukukholwa ukuthi uNkulunkulu osenyameni wayengeyena umuntu ojwayelekile bese bekholwa ngokuyiphutha ukuthi uNkulunkulu osenyameni wayengenabo ubuntu. Empeleni, umsebenzi nakho konke lokhu uNkulunkulu akwenzayo emhlabeni kungamandla angavamile. Okubona ngamehlo nalokho okuzwa ngezindlebe, konke kungaphezu kwemvelo, ngoba umsebenzi Wakhe namazwi Akhe akuqondakali futhi akufinyeleleki kumuntu. Uma okuthile kwasezulwini kulethwe emhlabeni, kungenzeka kanjani ukuba kube yinoma yini ngale kokuba ngaphezu kwemvelo? Izimfihlakalo zombuso wasezulwini zilethwe emhlabeni, izimfihlakalo ezazingaqondakali futhi zingazeki kumuntu, ezazimangalisa futhi zihlakaniphe kakhulu—ingabe zonke zazingekho ngaphezu kwemvelo? Nokho, kumele wazi ukuthi ngisho noma kuthiwa kungaphezu kwemvelo, kwenziwe ebuntwini bakhe obujwayelekile. UNkulunkulu osenyameni unobuntu, ngaphandle kwalokho, ubengeke abe uNkulunkulu osenyameni.

7. Umsebenzi woMoya kaNkulunkulu enyameni unezawo izimiso. Wayengawuthatha kuphela umsebenzi negunya likaYise ngenxa yokuthi wayenobuntu obuvamile. Kungaleso sikhathi kuphela lapho ayengaqala khona umsebenzi Wakhe. Ebunganeni Bakhe, uJesu wayengeke aziqonde zonke izinto ezenzeka ngezikhathi zasendulo waze waziqonda ngokubuza korabi. Ukube uJesu waqala umsebenzi Wakhe eqala nje ukufunda ukukhuluma, kwakungeke yini kwenzeke ukuba enze amaphutha? Wayengazithatha kanjani izinyathelo ezingafanele uNkulunkulu? Ngakho, kungemva kokuba esezazi izinto lapho-ke aqala khona umsebenzi Wakhe; akazange awenze ngaphambi kokuba esekwazi ngokugcwele ukuwuqala. Eseneminyaka engama-29 uJesu wayesevele esekhulile futhi ubuntu Bakhe base benele ukuqala umsebenzi okwakumele awenze. Kungaleso sikhathi kuphela lapho uMoya oNgcwele, owawukade ufihleke iminyaka engama-30, waqala ukuzembula khona futhi uMoya kaNkulunkulu wabe usuqala ngokomthetho ukusebenza kuye.

8. Umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu osenyameni unezimiso eziningi. Kuningi kakhulu umuntu angakuqondi nhlobo, nokho umuntu uhlezi esebenzisa lokho akucabangayo ukuze akulinganise noma afune izinto ngokwedlulele kuye. Ngisho nanamuhla baningi abangaboni ukuthi ulwazi abanalo aluphethe lutho ngaphandle kwalokho abakucabangayo. Kungakhathaleki ukuthi uNkulunkulu osenyameni ube khona ngayiphi inkathi noma kuyiphi indawo, izimiso zomsebenzi Wakhe esenyameni aziguquki. Akakwazi ukuba senyameni bese ephuma enyameni ukuze asebenze; ngaphezu kwalokho, akakwazi ukuba yinyama kodwa angasebenzi ebuntwini obuvamile benyama.

Uhlelo lokuphatha lweminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha luhlukaniswe lwaba yizigaba ezintathu zomsebenzi. Asikho isigaba esisodwa esingamelela zontathu izinkathi kodwa kunalokho singamelela ingxenye eyodwa yakho konke. Igama likaJehova ngeke lisimelele sonke isimo sikaNkulunkulu. Ngenxa yokuthi wenze umsebenzi eNkathini Yomthetho akusho ukuthi angaba nguNkunkulu kuphela ngaphansi komthetho. UJehova wahlela imithetho yomuntu futhi waloba phansi imiyalo, ecela abantu ukuba bakhe ithempeli nama-altare; umsebenzi awenza umelele iNkathi Yomthetho kuphela. Umsebenzi awenza awusho ukuthi uNkulunkulu unguNkulunkulu oyala abantu ukuba bagcine umthetho, uNkulunkulu osethempelini noma uNkulunkulu ophambi kwe-altare. Lokhu akunakushiwo.

Isimo sikaNkulunkulu singambulwa ngokuphelele ngokuhlanganisa lezi zinkathi ezintathu. Umuntu angakuqonda kahle kuphela lapho eziqaphela zonke lezi zigaba. Kungeqiwe nesisodwa isigaba. Isimo sikaNkulunkulu semvelo niyokwazi ukusiqonda ngokuphelele lapho senazi lezi zigaba ezintathu zomsebenzi. Ukuqeda kukaNkulunkulu umsebenzi Wakhe ngeNkathi Yomthetho akusho ukuthi unguNkulunkulu ongaphansi komthetho nokuthi ukupheleliswa komsebenzi Wakhe wokukhulula isintu akubonisi ukuthi uNkulunkulu uyohlezi ekhulula abantu.

Zonke izimfihlakalo ezingaqondwa ngumuntu kumele zicaciswe ukuze umuntu athole ukwazi ngazo futhi azazi enhliziyweni. Kungaleyo nkathi lapho abantu beyohlukaniswa khona ngokwezinhlobo zabo. Kusekupheleni kohlelo lweminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha kuphela lapho abantu beyoqonda isimo siNkulunkulu ngokuphelele, ngoba ukuphatha Kwakhe kuyobe sekufike ekugcineni.

23. Lokho okufuneka kumuntu kulolu suku akufani nokwangezikhathi zangaphambili futhi akufani kakhulu nalokho okwakulindelwe kubantu ngeNkathi Yomthetho. Futhi yikuphi okwakudingeka kumuntu ngaphansi komthetho ngenkathi kwenziwa umsebenzi kwa-Israyeli? Akukho okwakulindeleke kubo ngaphandle kokugcina iSabatha kanye nemithetho kaJehova. Akekho okwakumele asebenze ngeSabatha noma aphule umthetho kaJehova. Kodwa akunjalo namuhla. NgeSabatha, abantu bayasebenza, baqoqane ndawonye bathandaze njengenjwayelo, futhi akukho mingcele ebekiwe. Labo ababeseNkathini Yomusa kwakumele babhapathizwe; kwakungagcini lapho, kwakuthiwa bazile ukudla, bahlephule isinkwa, baphuze iwayini, bamboze amakhanda abo futhi bageze izinyawo zabo. Manje, le miyalo isiqediwe futhi sekufuneka okuningi kumuntu, ngoba umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uyaqhubeka ujula futhi ukungena komuntu kuya kukhula ngisho nakakhulu. Endulo, uJesu wayebeka izandla Zakhe kumuntu athandaze, kodwa ngoba manje zonke izinto sezishiwo sikuphi isidingo sokubeka izandla? Amazwi nje ewodwa angafeza okuningi. Kuqala lapho ebeka izandla kumuntu othile, kwakuwukubusisa nokuphulukisa umuntu. Yileyo ndlela uMoya oNgcwele owawusebenza ngayo ngaleso sikhathi kodwa manje akusenjalo. Manje uMoya oNgcwele usebenzisa amazwi emsebenzini Wakhe ukuze athole imiphumela. Usenze amazwi Akhe acaca kini futhi kumele nje niwasebenzise. Amazwi Akhe ayintando Yakhe futhi abonisa umsebenzi azowenza. Ngamazwi Akhe, ungayiqonda intando Yakhe nalokho akucela ukuba ukwenze. Uvele nje usebenzise amazwi Akhe ngaphandle kokubeka izandla. Abanye bangase bathi, “Beka izandla Zakho phezu kwami! Beka izandla Zakho phezu kwami ukuze ngithole isibusiso Sakho futhi ngihlanganyele Nawe.” Zonke lezi zindlela zokwenza seziphelelwe isikhathi futhi azisamukelekile ngoba inkathi isiguqukile. UMoya oNgcwele usebenza ngokuhambisana nenkathi, hhayi nje ngokuthanda noma ngemithetho ebekiwe. Inkathi isiguqukile futhi inkathi entsha kumele ifike nomsebenzi omusha. Lokhu kuyiqiniso ngazo zonke izigaba zomsebenzi futhi umsebenzi Wakhe awuphindwa nhlobo. ENkathini Yomusa, uJesu wenza umsebenzi omningi, njengomsebenzi wokuphulukisa, ukuxosha amadimoni, ukubeka izandla kubantu ngokubathandazela nokubabusisa. Nokho, ukuqhubeka nokwenza lowo msebenzi namuhla ngeke kusize ngalutho. UMoya oNgcwele wasebenza ngaleyo ndlela ngaleso sikhathi ngoba kwakuyiNkathi Yomusa futhi umuntu wayeboniswe umusa owanele ukuze ajabule. Akudingekanga ukuba umuntu akhokhe okuthile ukuze athole umusa, kuphela nje uma enokholo. Bonke babephathwe ngomusa. Manje inkathi isiguqukile futhi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu usuqhubekele phambili; ngokusola nokwahlulela Kwakhe, ukuvukela komuntu nezinto ezingcolile kumuntu zizokhishelwa ngaphandle. Njengoba kwakunjalo ngesigaba sokukhululwa, uNkulunkulu kwadingeka ukuba enze umsebenzi onjalo, ebonisa abantu umusa owanele ukuba bajabule ngawo, ukuze akhulule umuntu esonweni, nangomusa wamxolela umuntu izono zakhe. Lesi sigaba senzelwe ukwambula ububi kumuntu ngokusola, ukwahlulela, ukushaya kwamagama ukuze ngemva kwalokho basindiswe. Lo msebenzi ujule kakhulu kunokukhulula isintu. NgeNkathi Yomusa, umuntu wathola umusa owanele futhi wayesewutholile kakade lo musa futhi awusakulungele ukuba utholwe ngabantu. Umsebenzi onjalo manje usuphelelwe yisikhathi futhi angeke usenziwa. Manje, umuntu usindiswa ngokwahlulelwa yizwi. Ngemva kokwahlulelwa, kokusolwa nangemva kokucwengwa komuntu, ubuntu bakhe buyaguquka. Ingabe lokhu akungenxa yamazwi engiwakhulumile? Isigaba ngasinye somsebenzi senziwe ngokuvumelana nokuthuthuka kwaso sonke isintu nenkathi. Wonke umsebenzi unokuthile kuwo okubalulekile; wenzelwa ukusindisa kokugcina, ukuze isintu sibe nekusasa elihle nokuthi ekugcineni umuntu ahlukaniseke ngokohlobo ayilo.

24. Umsebenzi ngezinsuku zokugcina uwukukhuluma amazwi. Zinkulu izinguquko ezingenzeka kubantu ngamazwi. Izinguquko ezenzekile kulaba bantu ekwamukeleni la mazwi zinkulu kakhulu kunalezo zangeNkathi Yomusa ekwamukeleni lezo zibonakaliso nezimangaliso. Ngoba, eNkathini Yomusa, amadimoni asuka kumuntu ngenxa yokubekwa kwezandla nemithandazo kodwa izimo zokonakala ngaphakathi kumuntu zahlala zikhona. Umuntu wayephulukiswa ekuguleni kwakhe futhi exolelwa izono zakhe, kodwa umsebenzi wendlela yokuthi izimo zobusathane ezonakalise ngayo umuntu zingaxoshwa kanjani kumuntu awenziwanga kuye. Umuntu wayephulukiswa ekuguleni kwakhe futhi ethethelelwa izono zakhe ngokukholwa kwakhe, kodwa umsebenzi wesimo semvelo yesono kumuntu asisuswanga, saqhubeka sahlala kuye. Izono zomuntu zathethelelwa ngoNkulunkulu osenyameni kodwa akusho ukuthi umuntu akanaso isono phakathi kuye. Izono zomuntu zazingathethelelwa ngomnikelo wesono kodwa umuntu akakakwazi ukuxazulula indaba yokuthi angabe esasenza isono nokuthi le mvelo yakhe yokona ingakhishwa kanjani ngokuphelele futhi iguqulwe. Izono zomuntu zaxolelwa ngenxa yomsebenzi wokubethelwa kukaNkulunkulu kodwa umuntu waqhubeka ephila enkathini endala, yendlela yesimo esonakele sobusathane. Kanjalo-ke umuntu kumele asindiswe ngokuphelele esimweni esikhohlakele sobusathane ukuze imvelo yesono ikhishwe ngokuphelele futhi ingaphinde ibe khona, kanjalo kwenzelwa ukuba isimo somuntu siguqulwe. Lokhu kudinga ukuba umuntu aqonde indlela yokukhula ekuphileni, indlela yokuphila kanye nendlela yokuguqula isimo sakhe. Kudinga nokuba umuntu enze ngokuvumelana nale ndlela ukuze isimo somuntu semvelo sizoguquka kancane kancane futhi usengaphila phansi kokukhanya futhi usengenza zonke izinto ezivumelana nentando kaNkulunkulu, alahle isimo sobusathane esonakele futhi akhululeke ethonyeni likaSathane lobumnyama ngaleyo ndlela aphume ngokugcwele esonweni. Kungaleso sikhathi kuphela lapho umuntu eyothola khona insindiso ephelele. Lapho uJesu enza umsebenzi Wakhe, ulwazi lomuntu ngaye lwalungakacaci. Umuntu wayelokhu ecabanga ukuthi uyindodana kaDavide futhi emmemezela njengomphrofethi omkhulu neNkosi enomusa eyakhulula umuntu esonweni. Abanye, ngenxa yokholo, baphulukiswa ngokuthinta nje umphetho wengubo Yakhe; abangaboni base bebona ngisho nababefile babuyiselwa ekuphileni. Nokho, umuntu akazange ayithole impande ejulile yesimo sobuSathane esonakele kuye futhi akakwazanga ukuyilahla. Umuntu wathola umusa omkhulu, njengokuthula kanye nenjabulo enyameni, isibusiso sawo wonke umndeni ngenxa yokholo loyedwa, nokuphulukiswa kwabagulayo kanye nokunye. Okunye kwakuyizenzo ezinhle zomuntu kanye nokubonakala kwazo kobuNkulunkulu; uma umuntu ayengaphila ngaleyo ndlela, wayebhekwa njengekholwa elihle. Amakholwa anjalo kuphela ayengangena ezulwini ngemva kokufa, okusho ukuthi ayesindiswa. Kodwa, ekuphileni kwawo, awazange ayiqonde nhlobo indlela yokuphila. Ayemane enze izono, azivume njengenjwayelo ngaphandle kokuguqula izindlela zawo; zazinjalo izimo zabantu zemvelo ngeNkathi Yomusa. Ingabe abantu sebethole insindiso ephelele? Cha! Ngakho, ngemva kokuba leso sigaba sesiphelile, usekhona umsebenzi wokwahlulela nokusola. Lesi sigaba senza umuntu abe msulwa ngamazwi ukuze umuntu anikwe indlela okumele ayilandele. Lesi sigaba sasingeke sibe nezithelo noma nenjongo ukube saqhubeka ngokuxoshwa kwamadimoni, ngoba isimo sesono somuntu asinakuxoshwa futhi umuntu angakwazi kuphela ukuma uma exolelwa izono zakhe. Umuntu uxolelwe iziphambeko zakhe ngenxa yomnikelo wesono ngoba umsebenzi wokubethelwa usufike ekugcineni futhi uNkulunkulu usemnqobile uSathane. Kodwa isimo somuntu esingalungile sisephakathi kumuntu futhi umuntu usuke esengasenza isono futhi aphikisane noNkulunkulu; uNkulunkulu akakasizuzi isintu. Yingakho kulesi sigaba somsebenzi uNkulunkulu esebenzisa izwi ukuze embule ukungalungi kwesimo somuntu, aphinde acele ukuba umuntu enze ngendlela efanele. Lesi sigaba sibaluleke kakhulu kunesingaphambili futhi sinezinzuzo ezengeziwe, okwamanje yizwi elinika ngokuqondile umuntu ukuphila futhi lenze isimo somuntu sibe sisha ngokuphelele; yisigaba somsebenzi esenziwe ngokucophelela okukhulu. Ngakho, ukuba kukaNkulunkulu senyameni ezinsukwini zokugcina kugcwalise ukubaluleka kokuba kwakhe enyameni futhi kwaluphetha ngokugcwele uhlelo lokuphatha kukaNkulunkulu lokusindisa umuntu.

25. Ukusindisa abantu kukaNkulunkulu akwenziwa ngokuqondile ngoMoya njengoMoya, ngoba uMoya Wakhe ngeke uthintwe noma ubonwe umuntu, futhi umuntu akanakukwazi ukuza kuwo. Uma ezamile ukusindisa umuntu ngokuqondile ngendlela yoMoya, umuntu uyokuthola kanjalo-ke ukusindisa Kwakhe. Ukube futhi akukhona ukuthi uNkulunkulu ube sesimweni somuntu, umuntu ubeyokwazi ukuthola insindiso. Ngoba umuntu angeke nangayiphi indlela asondele Kuye, kungafana nokusondela efwini likaJehova. Kungenzeka kuphela ngokuba abe umuntu odaliwe, okuwukuthi, afake izwi Lakhe enyameni azoba yiyo, Yena angawenza umsebenzi wezwi kulabo abamlandelayo. Kungaleso sikhathi kuphela lapho umuntu engazizwela yena mathupha izwi Lakhe, alibone futhi alamukele, ngakho ngalo uyosindiswa. Ukube uNkulunkulu akabanga yinyama, akekho umuntu obeyothola insindiso enkulu kangako futhi akekho obeyosindiswa. Ukube uMoya kaNkulunkulu usebenze kumuntu ngokuqondile, umuntu ubeyothatheka abe yisithunjwa sikaSathane ngoba akakwazi ukuzihlanganisa noNkulunkulu.

30. Kulesi sigaba sokugcina somsebenzi, imiphumela itholakala ngezwi. Ngezwi, umuntu uyakwazi ukuqonda izimfihlakalo eziningi nomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu kuzo zonke izizukulwane ezedlule; ngezwi umuntu ukhanyiselwa nguMoya oNgcwele; ngezwi umuntu uqonda izimfihlakalo ezingakaze ngaphambili zisombululwe yizizukulwane zakudala kanye nomsebenzi wabaphrofethi nabaphostoli basendulo kanye nezimiso ababesebenza ngazo; ngezwi umuntu ubuye aqonde isimo sikaNkulunkulu uqobo, kanye nokuvukela nokuphikisa komuntu futhi akwazi ukuziqonda ingqikithi yakhe. Ngazo zonke lezi zigaba zomsebenzi nawo wonke amazwi akhulunyiwe, umuntu useyawazi umsebenzi woMoya, umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu osenyameni futhi ngaphezu kwalokho, sonke isimo sikaNkulunkulu. Ulwazi lwenu lomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu wokuphatha kukaNkulunkulu weminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha lwatholakala ngezwi. Ingabe akulona ulwazi lwakho lwemicabango yakho yangaphambili kanye nokuphumelela ukuyiyeka okwatholakala ngezwi?

Ngakho, amazwi akhulunywe kulesi sigaba ayawedlula umsebenzi owenziwa ngabaphostoli nabaphrofethi bezizukulwane ezedlule. Ngisho neziphrofetho ezenziwa ngabaphrofethi zazingeke zibe nemiphumela enjena. Abaphrofethi bakhuluma iziphrofetho kuphela zokuthi kuyokwenzekani esikhathini esizayo, kodwa hhayi ngomsebenzi uNkulunkulu ayezowenza ngaleso sikhathi. Abakhulumelanga ukuhola abantu ezimpilweni zabo, ukubekwa kwamaqiniso kumuntu noma ukwambulela umuntu izimfihlakalo futhi kwakukancane kakhulu ukukhuluma ngokunika abantu ukuphila. Amazwi akhulunywe kulesi sigaba, kuwo kunesiprofetho neqiniso, kodwa inhloso yawo ukunika abantu ukuphila. Emazwini akhulunywa kulesi sigaba, kukhona ukuphrofetha neqiniso, kodwa ikakhulu asebenza ukunikeza impilo kumuntu. Amazwi amanje awafani neziphrofetho zabaphrofethi. Lesi yisigaba somsebenzi hhayi weziphrofetho kodwa wezimpilo zabantu, wokuguqula izimo zabantu. Isigaba sokuqala sasiwumsebenzi kaJehova wokulungisa indlela yomuntu yokudumisa uNkulunkulu emhlabeni. Kwakuwumsebenzi wokuqala ukuthola umthombo womsebenzi emhlabeni. Ngaleso sikhathi, uJehova wafundisa ama-Israyeli ukuba agcine iSabatha, ahloniphe abazali futhi aphile ngokuthula nabanye. Njengoba umuntu wangaleso sikhathi engazange aqonde okwakwakhe umuntu, futhi bengazange baqonde indlela yokuphila emhlabeni, kwakudingekile ukuba esigabeni sokuqala ahole abantu ezimpilweni zabo. Konke uJehova akukhulume kubo kwakungakaze kwaziwe yisintu noma kube kubona. Ngaleso sikhathi abaphrofethi babefundiswe ukukhuluma iziphrofetho, zonke zenziwe ngaphansi kokuhola kukaJehova. Lokhu kwakuyingxenye yomsebenzi nje. Esigabeni sokuqala, uNkulunkulu akazange abe yinyama, ngakho wakhuluma nazo zonke izizwe nezinhlanga ngabaphrofethi. Lapho uJesu enza umsebenzi wakhe ngaleso sikhathi, akazange akhulume kakhulu njengoba esenza manje. Lo msebenzi wezwi ezinsukwini zokugcina awukaze wenziwe ezinkathini nasezizukulwaneni zangaphambili. Nakuba u-Isaya, uDaniyeli kanye noJohane benza iziphrofetho eziningi, iziphrofetho ezinjalo zazihluke kakhulu kunamazwi akhulunywa manje. Ababekukhuluma kuphela kwakuyiziphrofetho kodwa amazwi manje awazona. Uma ngikuguqula engikukhulumayo manje ngikwenza iziphrofetho, ubuyokwazi ukukuqonda? Ukube ngikhulume ngezinto zangenkathi ezayo, lapho sengihambile, ubuzokuthola kanjani ukuqonda? Umsebenzi wezwi awuzange wenziwe ngesikhathi sikaJesu noma ngeNkathi Yomthetho. Mhlawumbe abanye bangathi, “Ingabe uJehova akakhulumanga amazwi futhi esikhathini somsebenzi Wakhe? Ngaphezu kokwelapha abagulayo, ukuxosha amadimoni nokusebenza ngezibonakaliso nezimangaliso, ingabe uJesu akazange akhulume ngamazwi ngaleso sikhathi?” Kunomehluko endleleni amazwi akhulunywa ngayo. Yayiyini ingqikithi yamazwi akhulunywa uJehova? Wayehola abantu kuphela ezimpilweni zabo emhlabeni, okwakungazithinti izindaba zomoya empilweni. Kungani kuthiwa amazwi kaJehova amenyezelwa kuzo zonke izindawo? Igama elithi “memezela” lisho ukunika izincazelo kanye neziqondiso ezicacile. Akazange anike abantu ukuphila; kunalokho, wathatha umuntu ngesandla futhi wamfundisa indlela yokuhlonipha. Yayingekho imizekeliso. Umsebenzi kaJehova kwa-Israyeli wawungahloselwe ukubhekana noma ukuqondisa umuntu noma ukwethula ukwahlulela nokusola; kwakungowokuhola. UJehova wathi uMose akatshele abantu Bakhe ukuba babuthe imana ehlane. Njalo ekuseni ngaphambi kokuphuma kwelanga, babebutha imana elalanele lolo suku. Imana lalingeke ligcinwe kuze kube usuku olulandelayo ngoba lalonakala. Akazange afundise abantu noma ambule izimvelo zabo, futhi akazange ambule imicabango nemibono yabo. Akazange abashintshe abantu kunalokho wabahola ekuphileni kwabo. Ngaleso sikhathi, umuntu wayenjengezingane; wayengaqondi lutho futhi wayekwazi ukwenza iminyakazo elula nje; ngakho uJehova wenza kuphela imithetho eyayizohola abantu. Uma ufisa ukushumayela ivangeli ukuze bonke labo abafuna ngezinhliziyo eziqotho bazuze ulwazi ngomsebenzi owenziwe ngalolu suku futhi baqiniseke kahle ngalo, ngakho kumele uyazi kahle indaba engaphakathi, ingqikithi nokubaluleka komsebenzi owenziwa isigaba nesigaba. Ngokuzwa ubudlelwano bakho, bangawuqonda umsebenzi kaJehova nomsebenzi kaJesu futhi, ngaphezu kwalokho, wonke umsebenzi owenziwa ngalezi zinsuku, kanye nokuhlobana nomehluko phakathi kwalezi zigaba ezintathu zomsebenzi ukuze, ngemva kokuba sebelalele beyobona ukuthi asikho isigaba kulezi ezintathu esiphazamisa ezinye. Empeleni, zonke zenziwe ngoMoya ofanayo. Nakuba bezenza umsebenzi ongafani ezinkathini ezingafani futhi kukhulunywa amazwi angafani, izimiso ayesebenza ngazo beziyinto eyodwa efanayo. Lena yimibono emikhulu bonke abantu okufanele bayiqonde.
