Isahluko 3 Amaqiniso Ngezigaba Ezintathu Zomsebenzi KaNkulunkulu

3. Inhloso Nokubaluleka Kwaleso Naleso Sezigaba Ezintathu Zomsebenzi KaNkulunkulu

Amazwi KaNkulunkulu Abalulekile:

Umsebenzi uJehova awenza kuma-Israyeli wamisa phakathi kwesintu indawo kaNkulunkulu yokudabuka emhlabeni, futhi okwakuyindawo engcwele ayekhona kuyo. Wawugcina umsebenzi wakhe ukubantu bakwa-Israyeli kuphela. Ekuqaleni, akazange asebenze ngaphandle kwakwa-Israyeli; kunalokho, wakhetha abantu abathola befanelekile ukuze anciphise ububanzi bomsebenzi Wakhe. Kwa-Israyeli yindawo lapho uNkulunkulu adala khona u-Adamu no-Eva, futhi ngothuli lwaleyo ndawo, uJehova wenza umuntu; le ndawo yaba yisizinda somsebenzi Wakhe emhlabeni. Abakwa-Israyeli, ababeyinzalo kaNowa babeyinzalo ka-Adamu futhi, babeyisisekelo esingabantu somsebenzi kaJehova emhlabeni.

Ngalesi sikhathi, ukubaluleka, inhloso, kanye nezigaba zomsebenzi kaJehova kwa-Israyeli kwakungukuqala umsebenzi Wakhe emhlabeni wonke, okwathi, uthatha u-Israyeli njengesizinda sawo, waya ngokuya wandela kwabeZizwe. Lesi yisimiso asebenza ngaso emhlabeni wonke jikelele—ukwakha isibonelo bese esandisa baze bonke abantu emhlabeni jikelele balemukele ivangeli Lakhe. Ama-Israyeli okuqala kwakuyinzalo kaNowa. Labo bantu babefakwe kuphela umphefumulo kaJehova futhi babeqonda ngokwenele ukunakekela izidingo eziyisisekelo zempilo, kodwa babengamazi ukuthi uyinhloboni kaNkulunkulu uJehova, noma isifiso Sakhe ngomuntu futhi bengayazi intando yakhe ngomuntu, ingasaphathwa eyokwazi ngisho ukuthi kufanele bayihloniphe kanjani iNkosi yendalo yonke. Okokuthi yayikhona imigomo nemithetho okwakufanele ilalelwe, nokuthi imuphi umsebenzi isidalwa okufanele siwenzele uMdali: inzalo ka-Adamu yayingazi lutho ngalezi zinto. Konke ababekwazi nje ukuthi umyeni kufanele ajuluke futhi asebenze ukuze ondle umndeni wakhe, nokuthi inkosikazi kufanele ithobele umyeni wayo, futhi yandise uhlanga lwabantu uJehova abadalile. Ngamanye amazwi, laba bantu, ababenomphefumulo kaJehova kanye nokuphila Kwakhe, babengazi lutho ngendlela yokulandela imithetho kaNkulunkulu noma ukwenelisa iNkosi yendalo yonke. Babenokuqonda okuncane kakhulu. Ngakho-ke nakuba kwakungekho lutho olugwegwile noma oluwubuqili ezinhliziyweni zabo, futhi umona nokuphikisana kwakungavamile ukuvuka phakathi kwabo, noma kunjalo babengenalo ulwazi noma ukuqonda uJehova, iNkosi yendalo yonke. Labo khokho bomuntu babazi nje ukuphela ukudla izinto zikaJehova, nokuthokozela izinto zikaJehova, kodwa babengakwazi ukuhlonipha uJehova; babengazi ukuthi uJehova Nguye yedwa okufanele bamkhonze beguqe ngamadolo. Ngakho babengabizwa kanjani ngezidalwa Zakhe? Uma kwakunjalo, kuthiwani ngamagama athi, “uJehova uyiNkosi yendalo yonke” nathi “Wadala umuntu ukuze amveze, amkhazimulise, futhi ammele,”—kwakungeke kube ayekhulunyelwa ize? Kwakungenzeka kanjani ukuthi abantu abangamhloniphi uJehova babe ofakazi benkazimulo Yakhe? Babengaba kanjani ukuvezwa kwenkazimulo Yakhe? Ingabe amazwi kaJehova athi “Ngadala umuntu ngomfanekiso Wami” abe esephenduka isikhali esandleni sikaSathane—lo omubi? La mazwi ayengeke yini abe uphawu lokululazeka kokudala umuntu kukaJehova? Ukuze aqede leso sigaba somsebenzi, uJehova, emuva kokudala isintu, akazange abayalele noma abaqondise ukusuka esikhathini sika-Adamu kuya kwesikaNowa. Kodwa, kwaze kwaba emuva kokuba uzamcolo usubhubhise umhlaba lapho aqala khona ngokusemthethweni ukuhola abakwa-Israyeli, ababeyinzalo kaNowa neka-Adamu futhi. Umsebenzi Wakhe namazwi Akhe kwa-Israyeli kwanika ukuqondiseka kubo bonke abantu ezweni lonke lakwa-Israyeli, futhi ngale ndlela kwakhombisa isintu ukuthi uJehova akakwazi nje kuphela ukuphefumulela umphefumulo kumuntu, ukuze abenempilo evela Kuye, futhi aphakame othulini abe yisidalwa sikaNkulunkulu, kodwa nokuthi wayengangqongqisa isintu ngomlilo, futhi aqalekise isintu, aphinde asebenzise induku Yakhe ukuphatha isintu. Nabo-ke, babona ukuthi uJehova angayihola impilo yomuntu emhlabeni, futhi akhulume aphinde asebenze phakathi kwesintu ngokwamahora emini nawobusuku. Wenza umsebenzi ukuze izidalwa Zakhe zazi ukuthi umuntu wavela othulini olwalucoshwe Nguye, nokuthi ngaphezulu kwalokho, umuntu wayenziwe Nguye. Hhayi lokhu kuphela, kodwa umsebenzi awuqala ku-Israyeli wenziwa ukuze abanye abantu nezizwe (ababengahlukene empeleni no-Israyeli, kodwa ababexhante besuka kubantu bakwa-Israyeli, kodwa beseyinzalo ka-Adamu no-Eva) bathole ivangeli likaJehova ku-Israyeli, ukuze zonke izidalwa ezweni lonke zimhloniphe futhi zimbone emkhulu. Ukuba uJehova wayengawuqalanga umsebenzi Wakhe kwa-Israyeli, kodwa esikhundleni salokho wathi esesidalile isintu, wasidedela saphila impilo yokuzibonela emhlabeni, ngenxa yemvelo yomzimba womuntu (imvelo ichaza ukuthi umuntu akasoze azi izinto angaziboni, okungukuthi, wayengeke azi ukuthi uJehova wadala isintu, kungasaphathwa okokuthi wamdalelani), wayengasoze azi ukuthi uJehova wadala isintu nokuthi uyiNkosi yezinto zonke. Ukuba uJehova wayedale umuntu wayesembeka emhlabeni, wayesesula izandla Zakhe wamshiya kunokuthi ahlale phakathi kwabantu ukuze abahole isikhathi esithile, khona-ke sonke isintu sasiyophetha ngokushabalala. Ngisho izulu nomhlaba nazo zonke izinto eziningi azidala, kanye nesintu sonke, kwakuyophetha ngokushabalala kugxotshwe ngezinyawo nguSathane. Ngakho isifiso sikaJehova sokuba, “Emhlabeni, okusho ukuthi, phakathi kwendalo Yakhe, kufanele abe nendawo yokuma, indawo engcwele” sasiyodicileleka phansi. Ngakho-ke, emuva kokudala isintu, ukuthi wakwazi ukuhlala phakathi kwaso, ukuze asiqondise ezimpilweni zaso, futhi akhulume naso ephakathi kwaso, konke lokhu kwakungokokufeza isifiso sakhe, nokufeza uhlelo Lwakhe. Umsebenzi awenza kwa-Israyeli wawuqonde kuphela ukufeza uhlelo ayekade eluhlelile ngaphambi kokudala Kwakhe zonke izinto, ngakho-ke ukusebenza Kwakhe kokuqala phakathi kwabakwa-Israyeli nokudala Kwakhe zonke izinto kwakungaphikisani, kodwa kokubili kwakungenxa yokuphatha Kwakhe, umsebenzi Wakhe, kanye nenkazimulo Yakhe, kwajulisa injongo yokudala Kwakhe isintu. Wayiqondisa impilo yesintu emhlabeni iminyaka eyizinkulungwane ezimbili emuva kukaNowa, okuyisikhathi owafundisa ngaso isintu ukuthi siqonde indlela yokuhlonipha uJehova, iNkosi yezinto zonke, wabafundisa ukuthi baziphathe kanjani futhi baqhubeke kanjani nokuphila, nakakhulu, ukuthi bamfakazele kanjani uJehova, bamlalele, baphinde bamhloniphe, futhi bamdumise ngomculo njengoDavide nabapristi bakhe.

Kucashunwe “Umsebenzi ENkathini Yomthetho” encwadini ethi Izwi Livela Lisenyameni

UJehova wadala isintu, okusho ukuthi, wadala okhokho besintu, u-Eva no-Adamu, kodwa akabanikanga enye ingqondo noma ukuhlakanipha. Nakuba base bevele bephila emhlabeni, babecishe bangaqondi lutho. Ngakho, umsebenzi kaJehova ekudaleni isintu wawungakapheleli, futhi wawusekude nokuqedwa. Wayesakhe kuphela umfuziselo womuntu ngebumba wase ewunika umphefumulo Wakhe, kodwa ngaphandle kokunika umuntu ukuzimisela ukumhlonipha okwenele. Ekuqaleni, umuntu wayengenawo umqondo wokumhlonipha, noma ukumesaba. Umuntu wayazi kuphela ukulalela amazwi Akhe kodwa wayengazi lutho ngolwazi lokuphila emhlabeni kanye nolwemithetho efanele yokuphila komuntu. Ngakho futhi, nakuba uJehova wadala owesilisa nowesifazane wayeseqeda umsebenzi wezinsuku eziyisikhombisa, akazange neze aqede ukudala umuntu, ngoba umuntu wayeyigobongo nje, engenayo ingqikithi yokuba ngumuntu. Umuntu wayazi kuphela ukuthi nguJehova owayedale umuntu, kodwa wayengenalwazi noluncane lokuthi alandele kanjani amazwi noma imithetho kaJehova. Ngakho futhi, emva kokuba khona kwesintu, umsebenzi kaJehova wawusekude ukuphela. Kwakusafanele aqondise isintu ngokugcwele ukuba size phambi Kwakhe, ukuze sikwazi ukuphila ndawonye emhlabeni futhi simhloniphe, nokuthi sikwazi, ngokuqondiswa nguye, ukungena emzileni ofanele wempilo yomuntu emhlabeni. Kungale ndlela kuphela lapho umsebenzi owawenziwe kakhulu ngaphansi kwegama likaJehova owaqedwa khona ngokugcwele; okungukuthi, waphethwa ngale ndlela kuphela umsebenzi kaJehova wokudala umhlaba. Ngakho futhi, esedale isintu, kwafuneka ukuthi aqondise ukuphila kwesintu emhlabeni iminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha, ukuze isintu sikwazi ukuphila ngezinqumo nemithetho, kanye nokubamba iqhaza kukho konke ukwenza kwempilo ejwayelekile emhlabeni. Kulapho kuphela okwaphetheka khona ngokugcwele umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Wenza lo msebenzi emva kokudala isintu wase eqhubeka nawo kwaze kwaba yinkathi kaJakobe, okuyisikhathi enza ngaso amadodana ayishumi nambili kaJakobe aba yizizwe eziyishumi nambili zakwa-Israyeli. Kusuka kuleso sikhathi kuqhubeka, bonke abantu bakwa-Israyeli baba wuhlanga lwabantu olwaluholwa ngokusemthethweni Nguye emhlabeni, futhi u-Israyeli waba yindawo ekhethekile emhlabeni lapho enza khona umsebenzi Wakhe. UJehova wenza laba bantu baba yiqembu lokuqala labantu enza kubo ngokusemthethweni umsebenzi Wakhe emhlabeni, futhi wenza lonke izwe lakwa-Israyeli indawo yokuqala komsebenzi Wakhe, ebasebenzisa njengesiqalo somsebenzi omkhulu ngokuthe xaxa, ukuze bonke abantu abazalwe Kuye emhlabeni bazi ukuthi bamhloniphe kanjani nokuthi baphile kanjani emhlabeni. Ngakho futhi, izenzo zama-Israyeli zaba yisibonelo sokulandelwa ngabantu beZizwe, nokuthi lokho okwashiwo phakathi kwabantu bakwa-Israyeli kwaba amazwi okwakufanele alalelwe ngabantu beZizwe. Ngoba baba ngabokuqala ukwemukela imithetho nemiyalelo kaJehova, futhi baba ngabokuqala ukwazi ukuthi zihlonishwa kanjani izindlela zikaJehova, kanye nokuba ngabameli bohlanga lwabantu abakhethwe nguJehova.

NgeNkathi Yomthetho, uJehova wabeka imiyalelo eminingi uMose okwakufanele ayidlulisele kwabakwa-Israyeli, abamlandela bephuma eGibhithe. UJehova wayinika le miyalelo abakwa-Israyeli, futhi yayingahlobene nabaseGibhithe; yayenzelwe ukungqanda abakwa-Israyeli. Wasebenzisa imiyalelo ukuze afune izinto kubo. Noma abantu babeligcina iSabatha, noma babehlonipha abazali babo, noma babekhonza izithixo, nokunye nokunye: lezi kwakuyizimiso abantu ababehlulelwa ngazo ukuthi banesono noma balungile. Phakathi kwabo, bakhona ababeshaywa ngumlilo kaJehova, abanye ababekhandwa ngamatshe, nabanye ababethola isibusio sikaJehova, futhi lokhu kwakunqunywa ngokuthi umuntu uyayilalela yini imiyalelo noma cha. Labo ababengaligcini iSabatha babekhandwa ngamatshe. Labo bapristi ababengaligcini iSabatha babeshaywa umlilo kaJehova. Labo ababengabalaleli abazali babo nabo babekhandwa ngamatshe. Konke lokhu kwakuvunywe nguJehova. UJehova wamisa imiyalelo Yakhe kanye nemithetho Yakhe ukuze kuthi lapho ebahola ezimpilweni zabo, abantu balizwe futhi balilalele izwi Lakhe futhi bangamhlubuki. Wasebenzisa le mithetho ukulawula uhlanga lwesintu olwalusanda kuzalwa, ukwakha isisekelo somsebenzi Wakhe owawuseza. Ngakho-ke, ngenxa yomsebenzi owenziwa uJehova, inkathi yokuqala yabizwa ngokuthi iNkathi Yomthetho. Nakuba uJehova wakhuluma amazwi amaningi futhi wenza umsebenzi omningi, wahola abantu ngendlela eyakhayo kuphela, efundisa laba bantu abengenalwazi ukuba babe kanjani ngabantu, baphile kanjani, bayiqonde kanjani indlela kaJehova. Ikakhulukazi, umsebenzi awenza kwakungowokwenza abantu baphile ngendlela Yakhe futhi balandele umthetho Wakhe. Umsebenzi wenziwa kubantu ababengakhohlakele ngokujulile; awuzange wenabele ekuguqulweni kwesimo noma ekukhuleni empilweni. Wayekhathalele kuphela ukusebenzisa imithetho ukunqanda nokulawula abantu. Kuma-Israyeli ngaleso sikhathi, uJehova wayenguNkulunkulu ethempelini nje, uNkulunkulu osemazulwini. Wayeyinsika yefu, eyinsika yomlilo. Konke uNkulunkulu ayefuna bakwenze kwakuwukuthi balalele lokhu abantu banamhlanje abakwazi njengemithetho Yakhe nemiyalelo—umuntu angaze athi nje imigomo—ngoba umsebenzi kaJehova wawungahlosile ukubaguqula kodwa ukubanika ezinye izinto umuntu okufanele abe nazo, ukubatshela ngomlomo wakhe uqobo, ngoba emuva kokudalwa, umuntu wayengazi lutho ngokuthi kufanele abe nani. Ngakho-ke uJehova wanika abantu izinto okufanele babe nazo ezimpilweni zabo emhlabeni, wenza abantu abaholayo ukuthi babedlule okhokho babo, u-Adamu no-Eva, ngoba lokho uJehova abanika khona kwakudlula lokho ayekade ekunike u-Adamu no-Eva ekuqaleni. Nakuba kunjalo, umsebenzi uJehova awenza kwa-Israyeli kwakungowokuqondisa isintu kuphela nokwenza isintu simazise uMdali waso. Akazange abanqobe noma abaguqule, wamane wabaqondisa. Lokhu yisamba somsebenzi kaJehova ngeNkathi Yomthetho. Yisendlalelo, indaba eyiqiniso, ingqikithi yomsebenzi Wakhe ezweni lonke lakwa-Israyeli nesiqalo somsebenzi Wakhe weminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha—ukulawula isintu ngesandla sikaJehova. Kulokhu kwazaleka umsebenzi omningi ohlelweni Lwakhe lokuphatha lweminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha.

Umsebenzi owenziwa nguJesu wawuhambisana nezidingo zomuntu ngaleso sikhathi. Umsebenzi Wakhe kwakuwukuhlenga abantu, ukubaxolela izono zabo, ngakho-ke sonke isimo Sakhe kwakungesokuthobeka, ukubekezela, uthando, ubumnene, ukuqinisela, umusa, kanye nomusa wothando. Wabusisa abantu kakhulu wabalethela umusa omningi, nazo zonke izinto ababengase bazithokozele, wabanika ukuze bazithokozele: ukuthula nenjabulo, ukubekezela nothando, umusa Wakhe kanye nomusa wothando. Kulezo zinsuku, konke lokhu umuntu ayehlangabezana nakho kwakuyinala yezinto okumele azithokozele: Izinhliziyo zabo zazinoxolo futhi ziqinisekile, umoya wabo wawududuzekile, futhi babeqiniswe uMsindisi uJesu. Ukuthi babengazuza lezi zinto kwakungumphumela wenkathi ababephila kuyo. ENkathini yoMusa abantu base bonakaliswe uSathane, ngakho-ke umsebenzi wokuhlenga bonke abantu wawudinga inala yomusa, ukuqinisela okungapheli nokubekezela, phezu kwalokho, umnikelo owanele wokuhlawula izono zabantu, ukuze kufike emphumeleni wawo. Lokhu okwabonwa abantu eNkathini yoMusa kwakungumnikelo Wami nje wokuhlawulela isono sabantu, okungukuthi, uJesu. Konke ababekwazi ukuthi uNkulunkulu wayengaba nomusa nokuqinisela, futhi konke abakubona kwaba umusa kaJesu kuphela kanye nomusa wothando. Lokhu kwakungenxa yokuthi babephila eNkathini yoMusa. Ngakho-ke ngaphambi kokuthi bahlengwe, kwakumele bathokozele izinhlobo eziningi zomusa omkhulu uJesu abanika wona; yilokhu kuphela okwakuyinzuzo kubo. Ngale ndlela, babezoxolelwa izono zabo ngokuthokozela kwabo umusa, futhi bebezothola ithuba lokuhlengwa ngokuthokozela ukuqinisela nokubekezela kukaJesu. Ukuqinisela nokubekezela kukaJesu kuphela okwenza ukuthi bakwazi ukuthola intethelelo nokuthokozela inala yomusa ebekwe phezu kwabo nguJesu—njengoba uJesu athi: Angizanga ukuzohlenga abalungile kodwa izoni, ukuze izono zabo zixolelwe. Ukuba uJesu waba senyameni ngesimo sokwahlulela, sesiqalekiso, nokungabekezeleli amacala abantu, abantu bebengeke balithole ithuba lokuhlengwa, futhi bebezohlala bona unomphelo. Ukuba kwakunjalo, uhlelo lokuphatha lweminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha lwaluyoma eNkathini yoMthetho, futhi iNkathi yoMthetho ngabe yaba iminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha. Izono zabantu ngabe zakhula zaba nkulu zaba zimbi kakhulu, nokudalwa kwesintu kwakuzoba yize. Abantu bebezokwazi ukukhonza uNkulunkulu ngaphansi komthetho kuphela, kodwa izono zabo ngabe zingaphezulu kwalezo zabantu abadalwa kuqala. Ngokuthanda kukaJesu abantu, ebaxolela izono zabo ebanika umusa owanele nomusa nothando, abantu bakwazi ukusindiswa, babizwa ngezimvu ezazilahlekile ezabuyiswa uJesu ngenani eliphakeme. USathane wayengekwazi ukugxambukela kulo msebenzi, ngoba uJesu waphatha abalandeli Bakhe njengomama onothando ephethe usana ezingalweni zakhe. Akazange abathukuthelele noma abenyanye, kodwa wayegcwele induduzo; akazange athukuthele phakathi kwabo, kodwa wabayeka nezono zabo wabushaya indiva ubulima nokungazi kwabo, waze wathi, “Xolela izikhathi ezingamashumi ayisikhombisa aphindwe kasikhombisa.” Ngakho-ke inhliziyo Yakhe yaguqula izinhliziyo zabanye. Kwaba ngale ndlela lapho abantu bathola khona intethelelo yezono ngokubekezela Kwakhe.

Yize uJesu, ekubeni senyameni kwakhe wayengenawo nhlobo umzwelo, wayehlala eduduza abafundi Bakhe, ebahlinzeka, ebasiza futhi ebaqinisa. Noma ngabe wenza umsebenzi ongakanani noma wahlupheka kangakanani, akazange afune okwedlulele kubantu, kodwa wayehlale ebekezela futhi eqiniselele izono zabo, kangangokuthi eNkathini yoMusa wayebizwa ngokuthandwa ngokuthi “uJesu onguMsindisi othandekayo.” Kubantu bangaleso sikhathi—kubo bonke abantu—lokhu uJesu ayenakho nayeyikho, kwakungumusa nothando. Akazange akhumbule ukona kwabantu, nokubaphatha Kwakhe kwakungasukeli ekoneni kwabo. Ngenxa yokuthi leyo kwakuyinkathi eyehlukile, wayevamise ukunika abantu ukudla nokokuphuza okwanele ukuze badle basuthe. Wayephatha bonke abalandeli Bakhe ngomusa, elapha abagulayo, ekhipha amadimoni, evusa abafile. Ukuze abantu bakholwe Kuye babone nokuthi konke lokhu ayekwenza wayekwenza ngeqiniso nangobuqotho, waze wavusa isidumbu esase sibola, ebakhombisa ukuthi ezandleni Zakhe ngisho nabafile bangabuye baphile. Ngale ndlela wabekezela buthule phakathi kwabo wenza umsebenzi Wakhe wokuhlenga. Ngisho ngaphambi kokuthi abethelwe esiphambanweni, uJesu wayesevele ethwele izono zesintu waba umhlatshelo wezono zesintu. Nangaphambi kokubethelwa, wayesevele eyivulile indlela eya esiphambanweni ukuze ahlenge isintu. Ekugcineni wabethelwa esiphambanweni, wazidela ngenxa yesiphambano, wabeka bonke ububele Bakhe, nomusa wothando, nobungcwele phezu kwesintu.

Ngaphandle kokuhlenga kukaJesu, abantu babengaphila esonweni phakade, babe ngabantwana besono, isizukulwane samadimoni. Uma lokhu kuqhubeka, wonke umhlaba wawuyoba yindawo yokuhlala kaSathane, indawo yakhe yokwakha. Kodwa umsebenzi wokuhlenga wawudinga umusa nothando esintwini; yile ndlela kuphela abantu ebabethola ngayo intethelelo bese bethola ilungelo lokwenziwa baphelele futhi bazuzwe ngokuphelele. Ngaphandle kwalesi sigaba somsebenzi, uhlelo lokuphatha lweminyaka eyizinkulungwane eziyisithupha ngabe aluzange luqhubeke. Ukube uJesu akazange abethelwe, ukuba welapha abantu nje kuphela wakhipha namadimoni, ngabe abantu abazange bathethelelwe izono zabo ngokuphelele. Kule minyaka emithathu nesigamu uJesu enza ngayo umsebenzi Wakhe emhlabeni, waqeda ingxenye kuphela yomsebenzi Wakhe wokuhlenga; kwase kuthi ngokubethelwa esiphambanweni nokuba umfanekiso wenyama enesono, ngokunikelwa esandleni somubi, wawufeza umsebenzi wokubethelwa waphumelelisa isiphetho sesintu. Abantu bahlengwa kuphela emva kokuthi esenikelwe ezandleni zikaSathane. Iminyaka engamashumi amathathu nesigamu wahlushwa emhlabeni, wenziwa inhlekisa, wathukwa, walahlwa, kwaze kwaseqophelweni lapho engasenandawo yokufihla ikhanda, engenandawo yokuphumula; wabe esebethelwa, ubuyena bonke—umzimba ongcwele nomsulwa—wabethelwa esiphambanweni. Wabekezelela lonke uhlobo lokuhlushwa olukhona. Labo ababesemandleni babembhinqa bemshaya, namasosha aze amkhafulela ebusweni; kodwa wathula wabekezela kwaze kwaba sekugcineni, ethoba ngokungenamibandela kwaze kwaba sekufeni, lapho ahlenga khona sonke isintu. Waze wavunyelwa lapho ukuba aphumule. Umsebenzi owenziwa nguJesu umele kuphela iNkathi yoMusa; awumele iNkathi yoMthetho, futhi awuthathi indawo yomsebenzi wezinsuku zokugcina. Lena yingqikithi yomsebenzi kaJesu eNkathini yoMusa, inkathi yesibili isintu esesedlule kuyo—iNkathi yokuHlengwa.

Ngaleso sikhathi umsebenzi kaJesu wawungukuhlengwa kwaso sonke isintu. Izono zabo bonke ababekholwa Kuye zazithethelelwa; uma nje ukholwa Kuye, wayengakukhulula; uma ukholwa Kuye, wawungasesona isoni, wawukhululiwe ezonweni zakho. Yilokhu okwakushiwo ukusindiswa nokulungiswa ngokukholwa. Nokho, kulabo ababekholwa, kwasala labo ababehlubuka futhi bephikisa uNkulunkulu, okwakusadingeka baqedwe kancane kancane. Ukusindiswa akuzange kuchaze ukuthi umuntu wayesezuzwe uJesu ngokugcwele kodwa kwakusho ukuthi lowo muntu wayengaseyena owesono, okuwukuthi wayesethethelelwe izono zakhe: Uma nje ukholwa, wawungeke uphinde ube ngowesono.

Ngesikhathi uJesu eza emhlabeni wabantu, weza neNkathi Yomusa waqeda iNkathi Yomthetho. Ezinsukwini zokugcina, uNkulunkulu wabuye waba yinyama, wathi ukuba abe yinyama ngalesi sikhathi, waqeda iNkathi Yomusa waletha iNkathi Yombuso. Bonke labo abemukela ukuba senyameni kwesibili kukaNkulunkulu bazongena eNkathini Yombuso, bakwazi ukuvuma ngokwabo ukuholwa nguNkulunkulu. Yize uJesu enza umsebenzi omningi kubantu, waqeda kuphela ukuhlengwa kwabantu waba umnikelo wezono zabantu, wangasisusa isimo senkohlakalo yomuntu. Ukusindisa umuntu ngokugcwele ekuthonyweni uSathane akudingi kuphela ukuthi uJesu athathe izono zabantu njengomnikelo wesono, kodwa kudinga ukuba noNkulunkulu enze umsebenzi omkhulu ukuze kuqedwe nya lesi simo somuntu, esiye sonakaliswa uSathane. Ngakho, ngemva kokuba umuntu ethethelelwe izono zakhe, uNkulunkulu wayesebuyele enyameni ukuze aholele abantu enkathini entsha, waqala umsebenzi wokujezisa nokwahlulela, kanti umsebenzi Wakhe usubeke abantu endaweni ephezulu. Bonke labo abathobela ukubuswa nguNkulunkulu bazothokozela iqiniso eliphezulu bathole nezibusiso ezinkulu. Bazophila ekukhanyeni, bazuze iqiniso, indlela, nokuphila.

Kucashunwe “Isandulelo” sethi Izwi Livela Lisenyameni

Uma uNkulunkulu eba yinyama manje, umsebenzi Wakhe ukubonakalisa isimo Sakhe, ikakhulu ngokusola nokwahlulela. Esebenzisa lokhu njengesisekelo, uletha iqiniso kubantu, akhombise ezinye izindlela zokwenza, ngalokhu bese efinyelela kulokhu akuphokophele kokunqoba abantu nokubasindisa esimweni sabo esonakele. Yilokhu okusemsebenzini kaNkulunkulu eNkathini Yombuso.

Kucashunwe “Isandulelo” sethi Izwi Livela Lisenyameni

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.

Kucashunwe “Imfihlakalo Yokuba Senyameni (4)” encwadini ethi Izwi Livela Lisenyameni

NgeNkathi Yombuso, uNkulunkulu osesimweni somuntu ukhuluma amazwi ukuze anqobe bonke abantu abakholwa kuYe. Leli “yiZwi elivela enyameni;” uNkulunkulu uze ngezinsuku zokugcina ukuze ezokwenza umsebenzi Wakhe, okungukuthi, uze ukuzoqedela ukubaluleka kweZwi elivela enyameni. Ukhuluma amazwi kuphela, futhi kumbalwa lapho kunamaqiniso khona. Le yiyona ingqikithi yeZwi elivela enyameni, futhi uma uNkulunkulu osesimweni somuntu ekhuluma amazwi Akhe, lokhu ukuvela kweZwi enyameni, futhi kuwuLizwi eliza enyameni. “Ekuqaleni kwakukhona uLizwi, futhi uLizwi wayenoNkulunkulu, futhi uLizwi wayenguNkulunkulu, futhi uLizwi waba yinyama.” Lo (umsebenzi wokuvela kukaLizwi enyameni) umsebenzi uNkulunkulu azowuqeda ezinsukwini zokugcina, futhi yisahluko sokugcina sohlelo Lwakhe lonke lokuphatha, ngakho-ke uNkulunkulu kumele eze emhlabeni azoveza amazwi Akhe enyameni.
