I. Ubani Omkhulu: UNkulunkulu, noma IBhayibheli? Ebudlelwaneni Obuphakathi KukaNkulunkulu NeBhayibheli

1. Eminyakeni eminingi, izindlela zomdabu zabantu zokukholwa (lezo zobuKristu, okungenye yezinkolo ezintathu ezinkulu emhlabeni) bekuwukufunda iBhayibheli; ukusuka eBhayibhelini akulona ukholo eNkosini, ukusuka eBhayibhelini kuyinkolelo-ze embi, kanye nokuhlubuka, futhi ngisho lapho abantu befunda ezinye izincwadi, isisekelo salezo zincwadi kufanele kube ukuchazwa kweBhayibheli. Okungukuthi, uma uthi ukholwa eNkosini, kufanele ufunde iBhayibheli, kufanele udle uphinde uphuze iBhayibheli, futhi ngaphandle kweBhayibheli akufanele ukhonze noma iyiphi enye incwadi engaphathelene neBhayibheli. Uma ukwenza lokho, ukhaphela uNkulunkulu. Kusukela ngesikhathi lapho kwaba khona iBhayibheli, inkolelo yabantu eNkosini ibingukukholelwa eBhayibhelini. Esikhundleni sokuthi abantu bakholelwa eNkosini, kungcono ukuthi bakholelwa eBhayibhelini; kunokuba kuthiwe sebeqalile ukufunda iBhayibheli, kungcono ukuthi sebeqalile ukukholelwa eBhayibhelini; futhi kunokuthi kuthiwe sebebuyele phambi kukaNkulunkulu, kungcono ukuthi sebubuyele phambi kweBhayibheli. Ngale ndlela, abantu bakhonza iBhayibheli sengathi linguNkulunkulu, sengathi liyigazi lempilo yabo nokulahlekelwa yilo kungafana nokulahlekelwa impilo yabo. Abantu babona iBhayibheli liphakeme njengoNkulunkulu, futhi kukhona ngisho nalabo abalibona liphakeme kunoNkulunkulu. Uma abantu bengenawo umsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele, uma bengamuzwa uNkulunkulu, bayaqhubeka baphile—kodwa ngokushesha uma belahlekelwa iBhayibheli, noma balahlekelwe izahluko nezisho ezaziwayo eBhayibhelini, kumane kube sengathi balahlekelwe impilo yabo. Ngakho, ngokushesha uma abantu bekholwa kuNkulunkulu bayaqala bafunde iBhayibheli, nokwazi iBhayibheli ngekhanda, futhi lapho bazi ngekhanda ingxenye enkulu yeBhayibheli, yilapho kubonakala kakhulu ukuthi bayayithanda iNkosi futhi banokholo olukhulu. Labo abalifundile iBhayibheli futhi abakwazi ukukhuluma kwabanye ngalo bangabafowethu nodadewethu abalungile. Kuyo yonke le minyaka, ukukholwa nokuthembeka kwabantu eNkosini kukalwe ngezinga lokuqonda kwabo iBhayibheli. Abantu abaningi bamane abaqondi ukuthi kungani kufanele bakholwe kuNkulunkulu, nokuthi kufanele bakholwe kanjani kuNkulunkulu, futhi abenzi lutho ngaphandle kokucinga ngokumpumpuzela befuna imikhondo yezincazelo obala izimfihlakalo zezahluko zeBhayibheli. Abakaze bafune ukuqondisa komsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele; kuze kube manje, abenzanga lutho ngaphandle kokufundisisa nokuphenya iBhayibheli, futhi akekho owake wathola umsebenzi osemusha woMoya oNgcwele, ngaphandle kwaseBhayibhelini, akekho owake wasuka eBhayibhelini, futhi abakaze balokothe basuke eBhayibhelini. Abantu balifundile iBhayibheli kuyo yonke le minyaka, baqhamuke nezincazelo eziningi kakhulu, bazikhandla kakhulu; banokuhluka ngemibono okuningi, futhi abaphikisana ngayo bengaphezi, ngendlela yokuthi sekunezinhlelo zamabandla ezingaphezu kwezi-2000 ezakhiwe namuhla. Zonke zifuna ukuthola izincazelo ezithile ezikhethekile, noma izimfihlakalo ezijule kakhulu eBhayibhelini, zifuna ukulihlola, nokuthola isendlalelo ngomsebenzi kaJehova kwa-Israyeli, noma isendlalelo ngomsebenzi kaJesu eJudiya, noma ezinye izimfihlakalo ezingaziwa muntu. Indlela abantu abalithatha ngayo iBhayibheli yile enokuthatheka nokukholwa, futhi akekho ocacelwe ngokuphelele indaba yangaphakathi noma ingqikithi yeBhayibheli. Ngakho, umphumela walokho namuhla ukuthi, abantu basenokuzwa ongachazeki wesimangaliso uma sekuza eBhayibhelini; okudlula lokho, benganyelwe yilo bathathekile, futhi bakholelwa kulo. Namhlanje, bonke abantu bafuna ukuthola iziphrofetho zomsebenzi wezinsuku zokugcina eBhayibhelini, bafuna ukuthola ukuthi imuphi umsebenzi uNkulunkulu awenzayo ngezinsuku zokugcina, nokuthi iziphi izimpawu ezikhona zezinsuku zokugcina. Ngale ndlela, ukukhonza kwabo iBhayibheli kuya kuba namandla, futhi njengoba ziya zisondela izinsuku zokugcina, baya bezikholwa kakhulu iziphrofetho zeBhayibheli, ikakhulukazi lezo ezimayelana nezinsuku zokugcina. Ngokholo olumpumpuzela kakhulu eBhayibhelini, nangokwethembela okukhulu eBhayibhelini, abanasifiso sokufuna umsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele. Ngokokubona kwabantu bacabanga ukuthi iBhayibheli kuphela elingaletha umsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele; iseBhayibhelini kuphela lapho bengathola khona izinyathelo zikaNkulunkulu; iseBhayibhelini kuphela lapho kucashe khona izimfihlakalo zomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu; iBhayibheli kuphela—hhayi ezinye izincwadi noma abantu—okungacacisa yonke into kaNkulunkulu kanye nomsebenzi wakhe sewuwonke; iBhayibheli lingaletha umsebenzi wezulu emhlabeni; futhi iBhayibheli lingaqala futhi liphethe izinkathi. Ngale mibono, abantu abanaso isifiso sokufuna umsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele.

2. Namhlanje, abantu bakholwa ukuthi iBhayibheli nguNkulunkulu, nokuthi uNkulunkulu iBhayibheli. Futhi, bayakholelwa ukuthi wonke amazwi aseBhayibhelini yiwo wodwa amazwi uNkulunkulu awakhuluma, futhi nokuthi wonke ashiwo nguNkulunkulu. Labo abakholwa kuNkulunkulu bacabanga ngisho ukuthi nakuba zonke izincwadi ezingama-66 zeTestamente Elidala neTestamente Elisha zabhalwa ngabantu, zonke zanikezwa ngokuphefumulelwa nguNkulunkulu futhi zabe zingumbhalo wamazwi oMoya oNgcwele. Lokhu kuyincazelo eyiphutha yabantu, futhi ayivumelani namaqiniso. Empeleni, ngaphandle kwezincwadi zokuphrofetha, iningi lokubhalwe eBhayibhelini lingumlando nje. Ezinye zezincwadi zeTestamente Elisha zivela kulokho abantu abadlule kukho mathupha, futhi ezinye zivela ekukhanyiselweni nguMoya oNgcwele; izincwadi zikaPawulu, isibonelo, zavela emsebenzini womuntu, zabe zingumphumela wokukhanyiselwa nguMoya oNgcwele, futhi zabe zibhalelwe amabandla, zingamazwi okuyala nokukhuthaza abazalwane emabandleni. Kwabe kungewona amazwi ayekhulunywe nguMoya oNgcwele—uPawulu wayengeke akhulumele uMoya oNgcwele, futhi wabe engeyena umprofethi, kungasaphathwa okokubona imibono. Izincwadi zakhe zazibhalelwe amabandla ase-Efesu, eFiladelfiya, eGalathiya, kanye namanye amabandla.……Uma abantu bebona izincwadi noma amazwi kaPawulu njengamazwi oMoya oNgcwele, futhi bewakhonze njengoNkulunkulu, ngakho kungathiwa bemukela noma yini bakhohliseka kalula. Ukukusho ngesankahlu, akuve lokhu kuwukumthuka uNkulunkulu? Umuntu angakhulumela kanjani uNkulunkulu? Futhi abantu bangakhothama kanjani ngaphambi kwemibhalo yezincwadi zakhe namazwi awakhuluma ongathi ayeyincwadi engcwele, noma incwadi yasezulwini? Ingabe amazwi kaNkulunkulu ayengakhulunywa ngumuntu ngokunganaki? Wayengamkhulumela kanjani uNkulunkulu umuntu?

3. 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 nokuhlubuka kwakhe kwendalo kokuzazisa 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?

4. 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, inhliziyo 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.

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 ngokuthi abantu ezinsukwini zokugcina kumele bangene kanjani noma kumele bafune kanjani ukwanelisa intando kaNkulunkulu.

Umsebenzi wesigaba sesibili kwabe kungumsebenzi weNkathi Yomusa weTestamente Elisha, futhi wenziwa phakathi kwesizwe sakwaJuda, esinye sezizwe eziyi-12 zakwa-Israyeli.

Okungukuthi, ngeNkathi Yomusa abantu babefunda iTestamente Elidala. ITestamente Elisha lavela kuphela ngeNkathi Yomusa. ITestamente Elisha labe lingekho ngesikhathi uJesu esebenza; abantu emuva kokuvuka nokunyukela Kwakhe ezulwini babhala phansi umsebenzi Wakhe.

Akazange athathe iBhayibheli njengesisekelo salokho abe ekwenza, kodwa wakhuluma ngokuhambisana nomsebenzi Wakhe; wakushaya indiva okwakushiwo yiBhayibheli, futhi akazange afune eBhayibhelini ukuze athole indlela ayezohola ngayo abalandeli Bakhe. Kusukela ngesikhathi eqala ukusebenza, wasakaza indlela yokuphenduka—izwi elalingakaze liphathwe eziprofethweni zeTestamente Elidala. Akazange enze ngokuhambisana neBhayibheli, kodwa wavula indlela entsha futhi wenza umsebenzi omusha. Wayengakaze abhekise eBhayibhelini uma eshumayela. NgeNkathi Yomthetho, akekho owake wakwazi ukwenza izimangaliso Zakhe zokuphulukisa abagulayo nokukhipha amadimoni. Umsebenzi Wakhe, izimfundiso Zakhe, igunya Lakhe—akekho owayeke wakwenza lokhu ngeNkathi Yomthetho.

Umsebenzi Wakhe kwakungowokuvula indlela entsha, kwabe kungewona owokuqala uchuku ngamabomu nokumelana neBhayibheli noma ukuphetha ngamabomu iTestamente Elidala. Weza kuphela ukuzokwenza inkonzo Yakhe, ukuletha umsebenzi omusha kulabo ababemlangazelela futhi bemfuna. Akazange afikele ukuzochaza iTestamente Elidala noma ukuphakamisa umsebenzi walo. Umsebenzi Wakhe kwabe kungekhona ukuvumela iNkathi Yomthetho ukuthi iqhubeke ithuthuke, ngoba umsebenzi Wakhe awuzange uzihluphe ngokubonelela ukuthi wawungenalo iBhayibheli njengesisekelo sawo; uJesu wamane wafika nje ukuze enze umsebenzi ayefanele ukuwenza. Ngakho akazange achaze iziprofetho zeTestamente Elidala, noma asebenze ngokuhambisana namazwi eNkathi Yomthetho yeTestamente Elidala. Wakushaya indiva okwabe kushiwo iTestamente Elidala, akazange anake noma lalivumelana yini nomsebenzi Wakhe noma cha, futhi akazange anake nokuthi abanye baba ini ngomsebenzi Wakhe, noma ukuthi babewusola kangakanani. Wamane waqhubeka nokwenza umsebenzi okwakufanele awenze, nakuba abantu abaningi babesebenzisa ukubikezela kwabaprofethi beTestamente Elidala ukumlahla. Kubantu, kwakubukeka sengathi umsebenzi Wakhe awunasisekelo, futhi kwakukuningi ngawo okwakungavumelani nemibhalo yeTestamente Elidala. Ingabe akubona ubuwula lobu? Ingabe imfundiso iyadinga ukusetshenziswa emsebenzini kaNkulunkulu? Futhi kumele yini ukuba kuhambisane nokubikezela kwabaprofethi? Kanti phela, ubani omkhulu: uNkulunkulu noma iBhayibheli? Kungani umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu kufanele uhambisane neBhayibheli? Kungenzeka yini ukuthi uNkulunkulu akanalo ilungelo lokudlula iBhayibheli? Angeke yini uNkulunkulu akwazi ukushiya eBhayibhelini futhi enze omunye umsebenzi? Kungani uJesu nabafundi Bakhe babengaligcini iSabatha? Uma wayengaligcina iSabatha futhi enze ngokuhambisana nemiyalelo yeTestamente Elidala, kungani uJesu wayengaligcini iSabatha emva kokufika, kodwa kunalokho, wageza izinyawo, wamboza ikhanda, wahlephula isinkwa, futhi waphuza iwayini? Akuve konke lokhu kungekho emiyalelweni yeTestamente Elidala? Uma uJesu wayelihlonipha kakhulu iTestamente Elidala, kungani wazishaya indiva lezi zimfundiso?

……Ngakho, Wathi: “Ningacabangi ukuthi ngizele ukuzochitha umthetho, noma abaphrofethi: angizanga ukuzochitha, kodwa ukuzogcwalisa.” Ngakho, ngokuhambisana nalokho akufezayo, ziningi izimfundiso azephula. Wathatha abafundi wabayisa emasimini ukuyokha nokudla izikhwebu, akazange aligcine iSabatha, futhi wathi “iNdodana yomuntu iyiNkosi ngisho neyosuku lwesabatha.” Ngaleso sikhathi, ngokwemigomo yama-Israyeli, noma ubani owabe engaligcini iSabatha wayekhandwa ngamatshe. Kepha, uJesu, akazange angene ethempelini noma agcine iSabatha, futhi umsebenzi Wakhe wawungenziwanga nguJehova ngesikhathi seTestamente Elidala. Ngakho, umsebenzi owenziwa nguJesu wawedlula umthetho weTestamente Elidala, wawungaphezulu kwalo, futhi wawungahambisani nalo. NgeNkathi Yomusa, uJesu akazange asebenze ngokuhambisana nomthetho weTestamente Elidala, wayezishaye indiva lezo zimfundiso. Namhlanje kusekhona abantu ababambelele eBhayibhelini, kanye nomthetho weTestamente Elidala ikakhulukazi—akuphikisi yini umsebenzi kaJesu lokhu? Abanye abantu bathi iBhayibheli incwadi engcwele, nokuthi kufanele lifundwe, futhi abanye abantu bathi kufanele umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu usekelwe ungunaphakade, ukuthi iTestamente Elidala liyisithembiso sikaNkulunkulu nama-Israyeli, futhi ngeke lize liyekwe, futhi neSabatha kufanele ligcinwe njalo! Akuve bengena ngqondo nje? Kungani uJesu engaligcinanga iSabatha? Ingabe wayenza isono? Ubani ongabona adlule kulezi zinto?

19. Amazwi nomsebenzi kaJesu ngaleso sikhathi ayengabambelelanga ezimfundisweni, futhi akenzanga umsebenzi Wakhe ngokomthetho weTestamente Elidala. Bekuya ngomsebenzi obufanele ukwenziwa eNkathini Yomusa. Usebenze ngokomsebenzi awubekile, ngokohlelo Lwakhe, nangokwenkonzo Yakhe; akasebenzanga ngokomthetho weTestamente Elidala.

Ngihlose ukwenza umsebenzi omusha hhayi ngenxa yokugcwalisa isiqeshana esivela eBhayibhelini. Uma ngabe uNkulunkulu weza kuphela emhlabeni ukugcwalisa amazwi abaprofethi basendulo beBhayibheli, manje-ke ubani omkhulu, uNkulunkulu osesimweni somuntu noma labo baprofethi basendulo? Manje, ngabe abaprofethi abaphethe uNkulunkulu, noma uNkulunkulu ophethe abaprofethi? Uwachaza kanjani lawa mazwi?
