Okuqukethwe

Kufanele Ningayeki Ukuzinikela KuNkulunkulu

UMoya oNgcwele usebenza kanjani manje ebandleni? Niyakwazi lokho? Yiziphi izingqinamba ezinkulu zabafowenu nodadewenu? Yini abayintula kakhulu? Okwamanje, kunabantu abanokudembesela lapho bebhekene nezilingo, futhi abanye baze bakhononde, abanye abasayi ngisho phambili ngoba uNkulunkulu akasakhulumi. Abantu abangenanga emgudwini ofanele wokukholwa kuNkulunkulu. Abakwazi ukuphila ngokuzimela, futhi abakwazi ukunakekela ukuphila kwabo komoya. Kunabanye abalandelayo, abalwa ngomdlandla, futhi abazimisele ngokwenza lapho uNkulunkulu ekhuluma. Kodwa lapho uNkulunkulu engakhulumi, ababe besaya phambili. Abantu abakayiqondi intando kaNkulunkulu ezinhliziyweni zabo futhi akuzenzakaleli ukuthi babe nothando lukaNkulunkulu; ukulandela kwabo uNkulunkulu ngokwedlule kwakungenxa yokuthi babephoqiwe. Manje kunabantu asebekhathele umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Abekho yini engozini? Abantu abaningi basesimweni sokuphila nje. Nakuba bedla futhi bephuze amazwi kaNkulunkulu, baphinde bathandaze Kuye, konke abakwenzi ngenhliziyo yabo yonke. Abanawo umdlandla abake baba nawo, futhi abantu abaningi abanandaba nomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu wokucwenga nokuphelelisa. Kufana nokuthi abakaze babe nomdlandla ngaphakathi, futhi lapho sebenqotshwe iziphambeko, abazizwa bembonga uNkulunkulu noma bezisola, abalilandeli iqiniso noma bashiye ibandla. Bafuna izinjabulo zesikhashana kuphela. Lolu uhlobo lweziphukuphuku eziyiziwula kakhulu! Lapho kufika isikhathi, bayochithwa bonke, futhi akekho noyedwa oyosindiswa! Ingabe ucabanga ukuthi uma othile eke wasindiswa uyohlale esindisiwe? Lokhu kumane kungukuzama ukukhohlisa abantu! Bonke labo abangakufuni ukungena ekuphileni bayosolwa. Abantu abaningi empeleni abanandaba nokungena ekuphileni, emibonweni, noma ekwenzeni iqiniso. Abakulweli ukungena, eqinisweni abasafuni nokungena ngokujulile. Abazoni bona? Okwamanje, kunengxenye yabantu abanezimo eziya ngokuya ziba ngcono. Uma nje uMoya oNgcwele usebenza ngokwengeziwe, kuyanda nokuzethemba kwabo, futhi lapho bebona izinto, babuqonda kakhudlwana ububanzi bemfihlakalo yomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Lapho bengena bejula, baqonda kakhudlwana. Bezwa ukuthi uthando lukaNkulunkulu lukhulu kakhulu, bazizwa beqinile futhi bekhanyiselwe ngaphakathi. Bayawuqonda umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Laba abantu uMoya oNgcwele osebenza kubo. Abanye bathi, nakuba engekho amazwi amasha kaNkulunkulu, kusamele ngifune ukungena ngijule eqinisweni, kumele ngibe qotho kukho konke engikwenzayo futh ngingene emazwini kaNkulunkulu angokoqobo. Lolu hlobo lomuntu lunomsebenzi kaMoya Oyingcwele. Nakuba uNkulunkulu engabuvezi ubuso Bakhe futhi ezifihle kuwo wonke umuntu, futhi engasho lizwi, futhi kunezikhathi lapho abantu bezwa ukucwengwa ngaphakathi, kodwa uNkulunkulu akabashiyaile ngokuphelele abantu. Uma umuntu engaligcini iqiniso okufanele alenze, ngeke abe nawo umsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele. Phakathi nenkathi yokucwengwa, yokungazivezi kukaNkulunkulu, uma ungazethembi wethukile, uma ungagxili ekuzweni amazwi Akhe, lokhu kuwukubaleka emsebenzini kaNkulunkulu. Kamuva, uyolahlwa. Labo abangafuni ukungena ezwini likaNkulunkulu ngeke bakwazi ukufakaza Ngaye. Labo abakwaziyo ukufakaza ngoNkulunkulu bafeze intando Yakhe, bonke bathembele emdlandleni wabo sokulwela amazwi kaNkulunkulu. Umsebenzi uNkulunkulu awenza kubantu ikakhulu ukubenza bazuze iqiniso. Ukulwela kwenu ukuphila ngokokuniphelelisa—konke ngokokunenza nikwazi ukusetshenziswa uNkulunkulu. Konke enikulwelayo njengamanje ukuzwa izimfihlakalo, ukulalela amazwi kaNkulunkulu, ukupha amehlo enu, ukubona into entsha noma ukubona okusesitayeleni, nokwanelisa ilukuluku lenu. Uma lena kuyinhloso yenhliziyo yenu, ayikho indlela eningafinyelela ngayo ezimfunweni zikaNkulunkulu. Labo abangalilandeli iqiniso abakwazi ukulandela kuze kube sekugcineni. Okwamanje, akukhona ukuthi uNkulunkulu akenzi lutho—ukuthi abantu ababambisene Naye, ngoba bakhathele umsebenzi Wakhe. Bafuna kuphela ukuzwa amazwi esibusiso Sakhe, futhi abazimisele ukuzwa amazwi esahlulelo nokusola Kwakhe. Siyini isizathu salokhu? Yingoba isifiso sabantu sokuthola izibusiso asikafezeki, futhi banemibono engemihle, babuthakathaka. Akukhona ukuthi uNkulunkulu akafuni ngamabomu ukuthi abantu bamlandele, futhi akukhona ukuthi uwaletha ngamabomu amagalelo kubantu. Abantu banemibono engemihle futhi babuthakathaka ngenxa yokuthi banezinhloso ezingafanele. UNkulunkulu unguNkulunkulu onika umuntu ukuphila, ngeke abulale umuntu. Imibono engemihle yabantu, ubuthakathaka, nokwahlukana konke kubangelwa yibo.

Umsebenzi wamanje kaNkulunkulu ulethela abantu ukucwengwa okuthile, futhi ngabantu kuphela abangakwazi ukuma baqine kulokhu kucwengwa abayozuza ukwamukelwa uNkulunkulu. Noma ngabe uzifihla kangakanani, akakhulumi, noma akasebenzi, usengalwa ngogqozi. Ngisho noma uNkulunkulu ethe uzokwala, usazomlandela. Yilokhu ukuma njengofakazi kaNkulunkulu. Uma uNkulunkulu ezifihla kuwe bese uyeka ukumlandela, ingabe lobu ukusewukuba ufakazi kaNkulunkulu? Uma abantu empeleni bengangeni, abanaso isimo sangempela, futhi lapho behlangana nesilingo esikhulu ngempela, bayakhubeka. UNkulunkulu akakhulumi njengamanje, noma lokho akwenzayo akuhambisani nemibono yenu, ngakho akunihambeli kahle. Uma okwamanje uNkulunkulu ebenza ngokuvumelana nemibono yenu, uma ebenelisa intando yenu futhi benikwazi ukuma nilwe ngomdlandla, beniyobe niphila ngani? Ngithi kunabantu abaningi abaphila ngokuncika ekulangazeleleni kwabantu! abanayo nhlobo inhliziyo yangempela yokulwa. Bonke labo abangafuni ukungena eqinisweni kodwa abancika ekulangazeleleni kwabo empilweni bangabantu abakhohlakele abasengozini! Zonke izinhlobonhlobo zomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu ziwukuphelelisa isintu. Nokho, abantu bahlale befuna ukwazi, bayathanda ukubuza ngenzwabethi, bakhathazekile ngokwenzeka emhlabeni—kwenzekani kwa-Israyeli, kube nokuzamazama komhlaba yini eGibhithe—bahlale befuna into entsha, izinto eziyinqaba ezizokwanelisa izifiso zabo zobugovu. Abakulweli ukuphila, futhi abafuni ukupheleliswa. Bafuna kuphela ukuthi usuku lukaNkulunkulu lufike ngokushesha ukuze iphupho labo elihle libonakale nezifiso zabo ezinkulu zifezeke. Lolo hlobo lomuntu alukho ngokoqobo—lunokubuka okungafanele. Ukufuna iqiniso kuyisisekelo sokukholwa kwesintu kuNkulunkulu. Uma abantu bengakulweli ukungena ekuphileni, uma bengafuni ukwanelisa uNkulunkulu, kusho ukuthi bayojeziswa. Labo abayojeziswa yilabo abangakaze babe nomsebenzi woMoya Oyingcwele phakathi nesikhathi sikaNkulunkulu somsebenzi.

Abantu kufanele babambisane kanjani noNkulunkulu phakathi nalesi sigaba somsebenzi Wakhe? UNkulunkulu usavivinya abantu. Akakhiphi lizwi; uyazifihla futhi akathintani ngokuqondile nabantu. Ngeso lomuntu ongaphandle, kubonakala sengathi akasebenzi, kodwa iqiniso liwukuthi usasebenza ngaphakathi kumuntu. noma ubani ofuna ukungena ekuphileni futhi onombono ngokulwela khe ukuphila, akanakho ukungabaza, ngisho noma engawuqondi ngokuphelele umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Phakathi kwezilingo, ngisho noma ungazi ukuthi uNkulunkulu ufuna ukwenzani noma ufuna ukufeza muphi umsebenzi, kufanele wazi ukuthi izinhloso zikaNkulunkulu ngesintu zihlale zizinhle. Uma umfuna ngenhliziyo eneqiniso, akasoze akushiye, futhi ekugcineni nakanjani uyokuphelelisa alethe abantu esiphethweni esifanele. Akunandaba ukuthi okwamanje uNkulunkulu ubavivinya kanjani abantu, kuyoba nosuku lapho ayonika ngalo abantu umphumela ofanele nesijeziso esifanele ngokwalokho abakwenzile. UNkulunkulu ngeke abaholele eqophelweni elithile abantu bese ebalahla engabanaki. Lokhu kungenxa yokuthi unguNkulunkulu othembekile. Kulesi sigaba, uMoya oNgcwele wenza umsebenzi wokucwenga. Ucwenga wonke umuntu. Ezinyathelweni zomsebenzi wokuvivinywa ngokufa nokuvivinywa ngokusolwa, ukucwengwa ngaleso sikhathi kwakuwukucwengwa ngamazwi. Ukuze abantu bazi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, kumele baqale baqonde umsebenzi awenza manje nendlela abantu okufanele babambisane ngayo. Lena into wonke umuntu okufanele ayiqonde. Akunandaba ukuthi uNkulunkulu wenzani, noma ukucwengwa noma ukuthi akakhulumi, sonke isinyathelo somsebenzi kaNkulunkulu asihambisani nemibono yabantu. Zonke ziyehlukana futhi ziyayihlakaza imibono yabantu. Lona umsebenzi Wakhe. Kodwa kumele ukholwe lapho umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu ufika esigabeni esithile, noma kunjani ngeke abulale sonke isintu. Unika isintu izithembiso nezibusiso, futhi bonke abamfunayo bayokwazi ukuzuza izibusiso Zakhe, lapho abangamfuni uNkulunkulu eyobalahla. Lokhu kuncike kwenikufunayo. Kumele nikholwe nakanjani ukuthi lapho umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uphothulwa, wonke umuntu uyoba nesiphetho esihle. UNkulunkulu unikeze abantu izifiso ezinhle, kodwa uma bengazilweli, abakwazi ukuzithola. Manje kufanele nikwazi ukubona lokhu—ukucwenga nokusola kukaNkulunkulu kuwumsebenzi Wakhe, kodwa abantu kumele bafune ukusguquka kwesimo zikhathi zonke. Ezintweni enidlule kuzo, kumele niqale nazi indlela yokudla nokuphuza amazwi kaNkulunkulu bese nithola nalokho okufanele ningene kukho namaphutha enu phakathi kwamazwi Akhe, nifune ukungena kokwenu okungokoqobo. Thatha ingxenye yamazwi kaNkulunkulu obekufanele yenziwe uzame ukuyenza. Ukudla nokuphuza amazwi kaNkulunkulu kuyingxenye eyodwa, ukuphila kwebandla nakho kumele kugcinwe, kumele ube nokuphila okujwayelekile kwempilo yomoya, ukwazi ukunikela zonke izimo zakho zamanje kuNkulunkulu. Noma ngabe umsebenzi Wakhe uguquka kangakanani, ukuphila kwakho komoya kufanele kube okujwayelekile. Ukuphila komoya kungakwenza ungene ngendlela efanele. Noma ngabe uNkulunkulu wenzani, uzokwazi ukuqhubeka nokuphila komoya ungaphazanyiswa, ufeze umsebenzi wakho. Yilokhu abantu okufanele bakwenze. Konke kuwumsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele, kodwa kulabo abanesimo esijwayelekile kuwukupheleliswa. Kulabo abanesimo esingajwayelekile kuyisilingo. Esigabeni samanje somsebenzi wokucwenga soMoya oNgcwele, abanye bathi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu mkhulu kakhulu nokuthi abantu banesidingo esikhulu sokucwengwa, kungenjalo isimo sabo besiyoba sincane kakhulu futhi bebengeke babe nayo indlela yokufinyelela entandweni kaNkulunkulu. Nokho, kulabo abanesimo esingesihle, kuba isizathu sokungamfuni uNkulunkulu, nesizathu sokungayi emihlanganweni noma ukudla nokuphuza izwi likaNkulunkulu. Emsebenzini kaNkulunkulu, noma wenzani noma kuguqukani, okungenani abantu kumele babe nokuphila okujwayelekile komoya. Mhlawumbe ubuwumuntu oqaphelayo esigabeni samanje sokuphila komoya, kodwa awukazuzi okuningi; awukakuvuni okuningi. Ngaphansi kwalolu hlobo lwezimo kusamele ulandele imithetho; kumele ugcine le mithetho ukuze ungalahlekelwa ekuphileni kwakho futhi wanelise intando kaNkulunkulu. Uma ukuphila kwakho komoya kungajwayelekile, ngeke uwuqonde umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu wamanje; uhlale ucabanga ukuthi awuhambisani nhlobo nemibono yakho, futhi uzimisele ukumlandela, kodwa awunalo ugqozi lwangaphakathi. Ngakho noma uNkulunkulu wenzani njengamanje, abantu kumele babambe iqhaza. Uma abantu bengalibambi, uMoya oNgcwele ngeke uwenze umsebenzi Wakhe, futhi uma abantu bengenayo inhliziyo yokubamba iqhaza, ngeke bawuzuze umsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele. Uma ufuna ukuba nomsebenzi woMoya oNgcwele ngaphakathi kwakho, futhi ufuna ukwamukelwa uNkulunkulu, kumele uzinikele njengasekuqaleni phambi kukaNkulunkulu. Manje, asikho isidingo sokuthi ube nokuqonda okujulile, umbono ophakeme, noma ezinye izinto—okudingekayo nje ukuthi ubambe izwi likaNkulunkulu esisekelweni sokuqala. Uma abantu bengabambisani noNkulunkulu futhi bengakulweli ukungena okujulile, uNkulunkulu uyokuthatha lokho abake baba nakho. Ngaphakathi, abantu bahlale behahela ngokulula futhi bangancamela ukuthokozela osekukhona. Bafuna ukuthola izithembiso zikaNkulunkulu bengakhokhanga lutho nhlobo. Lena imicabango engenangqondo yomuntu. Ukuzuza ukuphila uqobo ngaphandle kokukhokha inani—yini eyake yaba lula kangaka? Lapho othile ekholwa kuNkulunkulu futhi efuna ukungena ekuphileni aguqule isimo sakhe, kumele akhokhe inani, futhi afinyelele esimweni lapho eyohlale elandela khona uNkulunkulu kungakhathaleki ukuthi wenzani. Lena into abantu okumele bayenze. Ngisho noma ulandela konke lokhu njengomthetho, kumele unamathele kukho, futhi noma izilingo zinkulu kangakanani, awukwazi ukudedela ubuhlobo bakho obujwayelekile noNkulunkulu. Kufanele ukwazi ukuthandaza, ugcine ukuphila kwakho kwasebandleni, uhlale nabafowenu nodadewenu. Lapho uNkulunkulu ekuvivinya, kufanele ufune iqiniso. Lesi yisilinganiso esincane sokuphila komoya. Ukuhlala unenhliziyo yokufuna nokulwela ukubambisana, ukusebenzisa wonke amandla akho—ingabe lokhu kungenziwa? Ngenxa yalokhu, ukuqonda nokungena kokungokoqobo kuyoba yinto ongayithola. Kulula ukwamukela izwi likaNkulunkulu lapho esakho isimo sejwayelekile, futhi akuzwakali kunzima ukwenza iqiniso, futhi uzwa ukuthi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu mkhulu. Kodwa uma isimo sakho sisibi, akunandaba ukuthi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu mkhulu kangakanani nokuthi umuntu ukhuluma kahle kangakanani, ngeke umlalele. Lapho isimo somuntu singajwayelekile, uNkulunkulu akakwazi ukusebenza kuso, futhi ngeke bathole izinguquko esimweni sabo.

Uma abantu bengenakho ukuzethemba abanakho, akulula ukuqhubeka behamba kule ndlela. Wonke umuntu uyabona manje ukuthi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu awuhambisani nemibono yabantu—akunandaba ukuthi mkhulu kangakanani umsebenzi awenzayo noma ukuthi ukhuluma kangakanani, akuhambisani neze nemibono yabantu. Lokhu kudinga ukuthi abantu babe nethemba nokuzimisela ukuze bakwazi ukukumela asebekubonile nasebekuzuzile ekuphileni kwabo. Noma ngabe uNkulunkulu wenzani kubantu, kumele babambe abanakho, babe qotho phambi kukaNkulunkulu, bazinikele Kuye kuze kube sekugcineni. Lona umsebenzi wesintu. Yilokhu abantu okufanele bakwenze—kufanele bakubambe lokhu. Ukukholwa kuNkulunkulu kudinga ukulalelwa Kwakhe nokuzwiwa komsebenzi Wakhe. UNkulunkulu wenze umsebenzi omningi—kungashiwo ukuthi kubantu konke kuwukuphelela, konke kuwukucwengwa, okukhulu ngisho nakakhulu, konke kuwukusolwa. Akukaze kube khona ngisho nesisodwa isinyathelo somsebenzi kaNkulunkulu ebesihambisana nemibono yabantu; into abantu abebeyithola amazwi anolaka kaNkulunkulu. Lapho uNkulunkulu efika, abantu kufanele bezwe ubukhosi Bakhe nolaka Lwakhe, kodwa noma ngabe amazwi Akhe anolaka kangakanani, uzele ukuzosindisa nokuphelelisa abantu. Njengezidalwa, abantu kufanele bafeze imisebenzi okufanele bayifeze, bethule ubufakazi phakathi kokucwengwa. Kuzo zonke izivivinyo, kufanele benze ubufakazi obulindeleke kubo, bethule ubufakazi obuqand’ ikhanda ngoNkulunkulu. Lona ngumnqobi. Akunandaba ukuthi uNkulunkulu ukucwenga kanjani, uhlala uzethemba ngokugcwele futhi awuyeki ukwethemba uNkulunkulu. Wenza lokhu umuntu okufanele akwenze. Yilokhu uNkulunkulu akufuna kumuntu, futhi inhliziyo yomuntu kufanele ikwazi ukubuyela Kuye ngokugcwele, iphendukele Kuye ngawo wonke umzuzu. Lona ngumnqobi. Labo uNkulunkulu athi bayanqoba yilabo abasakwazi ukufakaza, bangayeki ukuba nethemba, nokuzinikela kuNkulunkulu lapho bengaphansi kokuvinjezelwa nguSathane, okusho ukuthi, lapho bengaphansi kwamandla obumnyama. Uma usakwazi ukuba nenhliziyo ehlanzekile nokumthanda ngobuqotho uNkulunkulu kungakhathaleki ukuthi izimo zinjani, ufakaza phambi kukaNkulunkulu, futhi yilokhu uNkulunkulu athi ukuba ngumnqobi. Uma okufunayo kukuhle kakhulu lapho uNkulunkulu ekubusisa, kodwa uhambe ngaphandle kwezibusiso Zakhe, ingabe lokhu ukuhlanzeka? Njengoba uqinisekile ngokuthi le ndlela iyiqiniso, kumele uyilandele kuze kube sekugcineni; kumele uqhubeke uzinikela kuNkulunkulu. Njengoba ubonile ukuthi uNkulunkulu uqobo uzele ukuzokuphelelisa emhlabeni, kufanele umnike yonke inhliziyo yakho. Noma ngabe wenzani, ngisho noma enquma umphumela ongemuhle kuwe ekugcineni, usengamlandela. Lokhu kuwukuqhuba ukuhlanzeka phambi kukaNkulunkulu. Ukunikela ngomzimba womoya ongcwele nomzimba ongathunazekile kuNkulunkulu kusho ukuba nenhliziyo eqotho phambi kukaNkulunkulu.

Lapho nenza umsebenzi wenu ningagxambuzi nje kuwo; lapho nibhekene nezilingo kufanele nime niqine. Lokhu kuwukuzinikela kuNkulunkulu. Uma ungakweseki lokhu abantu okufanele bakwenze, kusho ukuthi konke ukuhlupheka odlule kukho kanye nezifiso zakho kuyize.

Kuzo zonke izigaba zomsebenzi kaNkulunkulu, kunendlela abantu okufanele babambisane ngayo. UNkulunkulu ucwenga abantu ukuze babe nethemba phakathi nokucwengwa. UNkulunkulu uphelelisa abantu ukuze babe nethemba lokupheleliswa uNkulunkulu futhi bazimisele ukwamukela ukucwenga Kwakhe kanye nokuhlanzwa uNkulunkulu. UMoya kaNkulunkulu usebenza kubantu ukuze ubalethele ukukhanya nokuqonda, nokubenza babambisane Naye benze akushoyo. UNkulunkulu akakhulumi phakathi nokucwengwa. Izwi Lakhe alizwakali, kodwa kusenomsebenzi abantu okufanele bawenze. Kufanele nibambelele kulokho eseninakho, kusafanele nikwazi ukuthandaza kuNkulunkulu, nisondelane noNkulunkulu, nibe ofakazi phambi kukaNkulunkulu; niyowufeza ngale ndlela umsebenzi wenu. Nonke kufanele nibone ngokusobala emsebenzini kaNkulunkulu ukuthi izivivinyo nothando Lwakhe ngokwethembeka kwabantu kudinga ukuthi abantu bathandaze kaningi kuNkulunkulu, bawanambithe kaningana amazwi kaNkulunkulu phambi Kwakhe. Uma uNkulunkulu enikhanyisela futhi enenza niqonde intando Yakhe kodwa ningayenzi nhlobo, ngeke nithole lutho. Lapho wenza amazwi kaNkulunkulu, kusafanele ukwazi ukuthandaza Kuye, lapho unambitha amazwi Akhe kufanele uhlale ufuna phambi Kwakhe, umethembe ngokugcwele ngaphandle kokuphelelwa yinhliziyo nokudangala. Labo abangawenzi amazwi kaNkulunkulu banamandla amaningi emihlanganweni, kodwa bawela ebumnyameni lapho bebuyela ekhaya. Kunabanye abangafuni ngisho nokuhlangana ndawonye. Ngakho kumele nibone ngokucacile ukuthi imuphi umsebenzi abantu okufanele bawufeze. Ningase ningazi ngempela ukuthi iyini intando kaNkulunkulu, kodwa ningawenza umsebenzi wenu, ningathandaza lapho kufanele, ningenza iqiniso lapho kufanele, nenze lokho okufanele abantu bakwenze. Ningawuqinisa umbono wenu wasekuqaleni. Niyokwazi ngale ndlela ukwamukela kangcono isinyathelo esilandelayo somsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Kuyinkinga ukungafuni lapho uNkulunkulu esebenza ngendlela efihlakele. Lapho ekhuluma futhi eshumayela emihlanganweni, nilalela ngenkuthalo, kodwa lapho engakhulumi niphelelwa amandla niqhele. Hlobo luni lomuntu olwenza lokhu? Umuntu olandela iningi. Abanandlela ababheka ngayo izinto, abanabufakazi, futhi abanambono! Abantu abaningi banjalo. Uma niqhubeka ngaleyo ndlela, ngolunye usuku lapho nehlelwa ukuvivinywa olukhulu, niyokwehlela esijezisweni. Ukuba nombono kubaluleke kakhulu ekupheleliseni kukaNkulunkulu abantu. Uma singekho isigaba somsebenzi kaNkulunkulu osingabazayo, ufeza umsebenzi womuntu, ukubamba ngobuqotho lokho uNkulunkulu athi kwenze, okusho ukuthi uyakukhumbula ukunxusa kukaNkulunkulu, futhi awukukhohlwa ukunxusa Kwakhe futhi noma wenzani manje ungakukhohlwa ukunxusa kwakhe, ungawungabazi umsebenzi Wakhe, uqhubeka nombono wakho, qinisa ubufakazi, futhi ulokhu unqoba kuzo zonke izinyathelo, ekugcineni uNkulunkulu uyokuphelelisa ube umnqobi. Uma ukwazi ukuma uqine kuzo zonke izinyathelo zezivivinyo zikaNkulunkulu, usengama uqine kuze kube sekugcineni, uwumnqobi, ungumuntu opheleliswe uNkulunkulu. Uma ungeke uqine ezivivinyweni obhekene nazo manje, ngokuzayo kuzoba nzima nakakhulu. Uma udlula ekuhluphekeni okungatheni ungalilweli iqiniso, ngeke uthole lutho ekugcineni. Uyobe ungenalutho. Kunabanye abantu abayeka izinto abazifunayo lapho bebona ukuthi uNkulunkulu akakhulumi, nokuthi inhliziyo yabo iyahlakazeka. Akusona yini isiwula lesi? Lolu hlobo lwabantu alunampilo yangempela. Lapho uNkulunkulu ekhuluma, bahlale bezulazula, bematasa futhi bezikhandla ngaphandle, kodwa manje ngoba akasakhulumi, sebeyekile ukufuna. Lolu hlobo lomuntu alunalo ikusasa. Phakathi kokucwengwa, kufanele ningene ninombono omuhle nifunde izifundo okufanele nizifunde; lapho nithandaza kuNkulunkulu futhi nifunde izwi Lakhe, kufanele niqhathanise isimo senu nalo, nibone amaphutha enu, nibone ukuthi ninezifundo eziningi okufanele nizifunde. Njengoba niqhubeka nifuna phakathi nokucwengwa, maningi amathuba okuthi nithole ukuthi kukhona okushodayo. Lapho nicwengwa ziningi izinto enihlangana nazo; anikwazi ukuzibona ngokucacile, niyakhononda, nembula inyama yenu—nithola ngale ndlela kuphela ukuthi isimo senu sikhohlakele kangakanani.

Abantu bayakuntula ngokwezinga futhi abafiki ezingeni elifunwa uNkulunkulu, esikhathini esizayo bazoba nesidingo esikhulu sokuhamba kule ndlela ngokwethemba. Umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu ngezinsuku zokugcina udinga ukwethemba okukhulu—udinga ukwethemba okwedlula ngisho okukaJobe. Ngaphandle kwethemba abantu ngeke bakwazi ukuqhubeka nokuzuza ulwazi lwempilo futhi ngeke bakwazi ukupheleliswa uNkulunkulu. Lapho kufika usuku lokufika kwezilingo, abanye bayolishiya leli bandla, abanye bashiye leliya bandla. Kuyoba abanye akade benza kahle kakhulu ekufuneni ezinsukwini ezedlule futhi akucaci ukuthi kungani bengasakholwa.
