Asibheke ku Genesise 22:17-18. Lesi ngesinye isiqephu esakhulunywa nguNkulunkulu uJehova, lapho athi ku-Abrahama, “Ngiyakukubusisa nokukubusisa, futhi ngandise nokwandisa inzalo yakho ibe njengezinkanyezi zezulu, nanjengesihlabathi sasogwini lolwandle; futhi inzalo yakho iyothatha isango lezitha zayo; Futhi ngenzalo yakho zonke izizwe zomhlaba zizobusiswa, ngokuba ulilalele izwi lami.” UNkulunkulu uJehova wabusisa u-Abrahama izikhathi ziningi ukuthi uzalo lwakhe lwaluyokwanda—lwande kuze kufike kuliphi izinga? Ezingeni okukhulunywe ngalo emBhalweni: “njengezinkanyezi zezulu nanjengesihlabathi sasogwini lolwandle.” Okungukuthi uNkulunkulu wayefisa ukunika u-Abrahama inzalo eningi njengezinkanyezi zezulu, futhi eningi njengesihlabathi sasogwini lo lwandle. UNkulunkulu wakhuluma lo mfanekiso, futhi kulo mfanekiso akunzima ukubona ukuthi uNkulunkulu wayengeke amane anike u-Abrahama inkulungwane eyodwa, ezimbili noma ngisho izinkulungwane zezinkulungwane zenzalo, kodwa kwakuyinani elingabaleki, ezanele ukuthi zibe yizihlwele zezizwe, ngoba uNkulunkulu wayethembise u-Abrahama ukuthi wayezoba nguyise wezizwe eziningi. Futhi lelo nani lalinqunywe ngumuntu noma kwakunqume uNkulunkulu? Umuntu angalawula ukuthi uyoba nenzalo engakanani? Kuncike kuyena? Akuncikile ngisho kumuntu ukuthi unabazukulu abambalwa, ingasaphathwa eyabaningi “njengezinkanyezi zezulu nanjengesihlabathi sasogwini lolwandle.” Ubani ongafisi ukuthi uzalo lwakhe, lube luningi ngangezinkanyezi? Ngeshwa, izinto azenzeki njalo njengoba ufuna. Akukhathaleki ukuthi umuntu unekhono noma unolwazi olungakanani, akuncikile kinina: akekho ongama ngaphandle kwalokho okumiswe nguNkulunkulu. Noma ukuvumela kokungakanani, yilelo nani oyoba nalo; Uma uNkulunkulu ekunika okuncane, ngeke uze ube nokuningi, futhi uma uNkulunkulu ekunika okuningi, akusizi ukudinwa yinani lalokho onako. Akunjalo? Konke lokhu kuncike kuNkulunkulu, hhayi kumuntu! Umuntu uphethwe nguNkulunkulu, futhi akekho osala ngaphandle!

Lapho uNkulunkulu ethi “ngandise nokwandisa inzalo yakho,” lesi kwakuyisivumelwano uNkulunkulu asimisa no-Abrahama, futhi njengesivumelwano sothingo, sasiyofezeka naphakade, futhi kwabe kuyisithembiso uNkulunkulu ayesenze ku-Abrahama. UNkulunkulu kuphela ofanelekile futhi onekhono lokufeza lesi sithembiso. Akukhathaleki noma umuntu uyakukholwa, akukhathaleki noma umuntu uyakwemukela noma cha, futhi akukhathaleki ukuthi umuntu uyibuka kanjani, nokuthi uyithatha kanjani, konke lokhu kuzofezeka, ncamashi, njengokusho kwamazwi akhulunywe nguNkulunkulu. Amazwi kaNkulunkulu ngeke aguquke ngenxa yezinguquko entandweni noma emibonweni yomuntu, futhi ngeke kuze kuguqulwe yizinguquko kunoma imuphi umuntu, into noma yini. Zonke izinto zinganyamalala, kodwa amazwi kaNkulunkulu ahlala phakade. Ngokuphambene, usuku lapho zonke izinto ziyoshabalala, yilo kanye usuku lapho amazwi kaNkulunkulu eyogcwaliseka khona ngokuphelele, ngoba unguMdali, futhi unegunya loMdali, namandla oMdali, futhi ulawula zonke izinto kanye nawo wonke amandla okuphila; Uyakwazi ukwenza utho luvele lapho kungekho lutho khona, noma utho luphenduke ize, futhi ulawula ukuguqulwa kwezinto zonke zisuke ekuphileni ziye ekufeni, ngakho kuNkulunkulu, ayikho into elula njengokwandisa uzalo lomuntu, njengenganekwane, kodwa kuNkulunkulu, lokho anquma ukukwenza, futhi athembisa ukukwenza, akukhona ukucabanga okungesikho, noma inganekwane. Kunalokho, kuyiqiniso uNkulunkulu ayeselibonile, futhi elalizofezeka ngokuqinisekile. Ingabe niyakubona lokhu? Ingabe amaqiniso ayafakazela ukuthi uzalo luka-Abrahama lwaluluningi? Ingabe lwaluluningi “njengezinkanyezi zezulu nanjengesihlabathi sasogwini lo lwandle” ezazishiwo nguNkulunkulu? Ngabe basabalala ezizweni nasezindaweni zonke, kuyo yonke indawo emhlabeni? Futhi yini eyafeza leli qiniso? Lafezwa igunya lamazwi kaNkulunkulu? Emakhulwini noma ezinkulungwaneni zezinkulungwane zeminyaka, amazwi kaNkulunkulu akhulunywa, amazwi kaNkulunkulu aqhubeka ukufezeka, futhi ayephenduka amaqiniso njalo njalo; lokhu kungamandla amazwi kaNkulunkulu, nobufakazi begunya likaNkulunkulu. Lapho uNkulunkulu edala konke lokhu ekuqaleni, uNkulunkulu wathi makube khona ukukhanya, futhi kwaba khona ukukhanya. Lokhu kwenzeka ngokushesha okukhulu, kwagcwaliseka ngesikhashana nje; umphumela wamazwi kaNkulunkulu wabonakala masinyane. Kokubili kwakungukubonakaliswa kwegunya likaNkulunkulu, kodwa lapho uNkulunkulu ebusisa u-Abrahama, wavumela umuntu ukuthi abone enye ingxenye yengqikithi yegunya likaNkulunkulu, futhi wavumela umuntu ukuthi abone ukuthi igunya likaNkulunkulu lalingelinganiswe nalutho. Nangaphezu kwalokho wavumela umuntu ukuthi abone enye ingxenye enhle futhi engeyoqobo yegunya lomdali.

Mayelana nezidalwa, ulimi lwesintu alukwazi ukuchaza ukubaluleka kwazo nesigqi sazo. Uma uNkulunkulu enza isithembiso kumuntu, noma kulapho ehlala khona, noma lokho akwenzayo, noma lapho evela khona ngaphambi noma emuva kokuthola isithembiso, noma ngabe zibe zinkulu kangakanani iziyaluyalu endaweni lapho ehlala khona, konke lokho kujwayelekile kuNkulunkulu njengemuva lesandla Sakhe.
