Umbuso Weminyaka Eyinkulungwane Usufikile

Nibonile yini ukuthi umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uzofezani ngaleli qembu labantu? UNkulunkulu uthe, ngisho eMbusweni Weminyaka Eyinkulungwane abantu kusazodingeka ukuthi baqhubeke belandela amazwi Akhe, futhi kusasa lamazwi kaNkulunkulu azoqondisa ukuphila kwabantu ezweni elihle laseKhanani. Lapho uMose esehlane, uNkulunkulu wamfundisa futhi wakhuluma naye ngokuqondile. UNkulunkulu wathumela ukudla esezulwini, amanzi nemana ukuze abantu bayijabulele, futhi kusenjalo nanamuhla: uNkulunkulu ngokwakhe uthumele izinto ezidliwayo neziphuzwayo ukuze abantu bazijabulele, futhi Yena ngokwakhe ulethe iziqalekiso ukuze ajezise abantu. Ngakho zonke izinyathelo zomsebenzi Wakhe zenziwa uNkulunkulu uqobo. Namuhla, abantu balambele iqiniso, bazama ukubona izimpawu nezimangaliso, futhi kunokwenzeka ukuthi bonke abantu abanjalo bashiywe, ngoba umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu uya ucaca kakhulu. Akekho owaziyo ukuthi uNkulunkulu wehlile esuka ezulwini, abakaqapheli ukuthi uNkulunkulu uthumele ukudla nezinto ezivela ezulwini-kuyilapho uNkulunkulu ekhona ngempela, nezimo ezijabulisayo zoMubuso Weminyaka Eyinkulungwane abantu abazicabangayo kuyizinto ezivela emazwini kaNkulunkulu. Lokhu kuyiqiniso, futhi lena kuwukuphela kwendlela yokubusa noNkulunkulu emhlabeni. Ukubusa enyameni noNkulunkulu emhlabeni kusho ukuthi enyameni. Lokhu okungekona inyama akukho emhlabeni, ngakho bonke labo abalwela ukuya ezulwini lesithathu balwela into engekho. Ngelinye ilanga, lapho umhlaba wonke usubuyela kuNkulunkulu, umongo womsebenzi Wakhe ezulwini nasemhlabeni wonke uzolandela izwi Lakhe; kwenye indawo, abanye abantu bazoshaya izingcingo, abanye bayogibela izindiza, abanye bayogibela izikebhe bawele ulwandle, abanye bayosebenzisa ama-laser ukuze bathole amazwi kaNkulunkulu. Bonke abantu bazodumisa futhi bazolangazelela, bonke bazosondela kuNkulunkulu, futhi bahlanganyele kuNkulunkulu, futhi bonke bazodumisa uNkulunkulu—futhi konke lokhu kuyobe kuyizenzo zikaNkulunkulu. Khumbula lokhu! Ayikho into uNkulunkulu asazoyiqala kabusha kwenye indawo. UNkulunkulu uzofezekisa leli qiniso: Uzokwenza ukuthi bonke abantu emhlabeni wonke beze phambi Kwakhe, futhi badumise uNkulunkulu emhlabeni, futhi omunye umsebenzi Wakhe kwezinye izindawo uzophela, futhi abantu bazophoqeleka ukuba bafune indlela yeqiniso. Kuyoba njenga kuJosefa: Bonke babeya kuye ukuze bathole ukudla, futhi bamkhothamele, ngoba wayenezinto ezidliwayo. Ukuze bagweme indlala abantu bazophoqeleka ukuba bafune indlela yeqiniso. Wonke umphakathi wamakholwa uzolamba, uNkulunkulu wanamuhla kuphela ongumthombo wamanzi okuphila, umthombo ophuphumayo owenzelwe ukuba abantu bajabule, futhi abantu bazoza bancike Kuye. Leso kuyoba yisikhathi sokwambulwa kwezenzo zikaNkulunkulu, futhi uNkulunkulu uyakhazinyuliswa; bonke abantu emhlabeni wonke bazodumisa “umuntu” ongahlabi mxhwele. Ingabe lolu ngeke kube usuku lwenkazimulo kaNkulunkulu? Ngelinye ilanga, abafundisi abadala bazothumela amathelegramu befuna amanzi omthombo wokuphila. Kuzoba nabakhulile, kodwa nabo bazoza badumise lo muntu, lowo abamdelelayo. Emilonyeni yabo bazoqaphela futhi ezinhliziyweni zabo bazothembela—ingabe lolu akulona uphawu noma isimanga? Lapho wonke umbuso ujabulela inkazimulo kaNkulunkulu, futhi noma ubani oza kuwe futhi amukele izindaba ezinhle zikaNkulunkulu uzobusiswa Nguye, futhi la mazwe nalaba bantu bazobusiswa uNkulunkulu futhi banakekelwe Nguye. Isiqondiso sangelinye ilanga yilesi: Labo abathole amazwi kaNkulunkulu evela emlonyeni Wakhe bazoba nendawo yokuhamba emhlabeni, futhi babe osomabhizinisi noma ososayensi, noma othisha, noma abezimboni, labo abangenawo amazwi kaNkulunkulu kuzoba nzima ngisho ukuthatha isinyathelo esisodwa, futhi bazophoqeleka ukuba bafune indlela yeqiniso. Yilokho okushiwoyo uma kuthiwa, “Ngeqiniso uzohamba emhlabeni wonke; ngaphandle kweqiniso, angeke uye ndawo.” Amaqiniso awukuthi: UNkulunkulu uzosebenzisa Indlela (okusho ukuthi wonke amazwi Akhe) ukuze aqondise wonke umhlaba futhi abuse futhi anqobe isintu. Abantu bahlale bethemba ukujika okukhulu emisebenzini kaNkulunkulu. Ukucacisa, uNkulunkulu uqondisa abantu ngezwi, futhi kumele wenze lokho akushoyo[a] kungakhathaliseki ukuthi uyafisa ukwenza lokho noma cha; leli yiqiniso elingenakuphikwa, futhi kumele lilalelwe yibo bonke, nalo futhi laziwe yibo bonke.

UMoya oNgcwele unikeza abantu umuzwa. Ngemva kokufunda amazwi kaNkulunkulu, ezinhliziyweni zabo ziyagxila, futhi ngokuthula, kuyilapho labo abangalamukeli izwi likaNkulunkulu bezizwa bengenalutho. Lokho kungamandla ezwi likaNkulunkulu—abantu okumele bawafunde, ngemva kokuwafunda bazokondleka, futhi angeke benze lutho ngaphandle kwawo. Kunjengalapho abantu bedla isidakamizwa okuthiwa yi-opium: sibanikeza amandla, futhi ngaphandle kwayo bazizwa bekhungathekile, futhi bengenamandla. Lowo umkhuba ophakathi kwabantu namuhla. Ukufunda amazwi kaNkulunkulu kunikeza abantu amandla. Uma bengawafundi, bazizwa bengenamdlandla, kodwa ngemva kokuwafunda, bavuka ngaso leso sikhathi ekuguleni. Lena yincazelo yokubusa kukaNkulunkulu (uLizwi) emhlabeni. Abanye abantu bafuna ukushiya, noma sebekhathele umsebenzi kaNkulunkulu. Kungakhathaliseki ukuthi benzani, abakwazi ukusuka emazwini kaNkulunkulu; kungakhathaliseki ukuthi babuthaka kangakanani, kusadingeka bancike emazwini kaNkulunkulu ukuze baphile, futhi kungakhathaliseki ukuthi bavukela kangakanani, abalokothi bashiye amazwi kaNkulunkulu. Lapho amazwi kaNkulunkulu ebonisa amandla awo yilapho uNkulunkulu ebusa futhi esebenzisa amandla Akhe, futhi yile ndlela uNkulunkulu asebenza ngayo. Kukho konke lokhu, imisebenzi kaNkulunkulu, futhi akekho ongayishiya. Amazwi kaNkulunkulu azosabalalela emakhaya angenakubalwa, azokwaziwa yibo bonke, futhi kungale ndlela kuphela lapho amazwi Akhe ezosabalala emhlabeni wonke. Okungukuthi, uma umsebenzi Wakhe kumele usabalale kuwo wonke umhlaba, amazwi Akhe kumele asatshalaliswe. Osukwini lwenkazimulo kaNkulunkulu, amazwi Akhe azobonisa amandla negunya. Wonke amazwi Akhe kusukela ngesikhathi esingakhumbuleki kuze kube namuhla azofezeka futhi azogcwaliseka. Ngale ndlela, inkazimulo izoya kuNkulunkulu emhlabeni—okusho ukuthi, amazwi Akhe azobusa emhlabeni. Bonke ababi bazojeziswa amazwi omlomo kaNkulunkulu, bonke abalungile bazobusiswa amazwi omlomo Wakhe, futhi bonke bazokwakhiwa futhi bapheleliswe amazwi omlomo Wakhe. Angeke Abonise noma yiziphi izimpawu noma izimangaliso; konke kuzofezwa amazwi Akhe, futhi amazwi Akhe azokhiqiza amaqiniso. Wonke umuntu emhlabeni uzohalalisela amazwi kaNkulunkulu, kungakhathaliseki ukuthi badala noma bayizingane, owesilisa, owesifazane, omdala, omncane, bonke abantu bazozithoba ngaphansi kwamazwi kaNkulunkulu. Amazwi kaNkulunkulu azobonakala enyameni, futhi azobonakala ngokucacile ekuphileni kwabantu emhlabeni. UNkulunkulu uze emhlabeni ikakhulukazi ukuze afeze iqiniso lokuthi “uLizwi uba yinyama,” okusho ukuthi, uze ukuze amazwi Akhe azonikezwa esenyameni (hhayi njengase sikhathini sikaMose eTestamenteni Elidala, lapho uNkulunkulu ayekhuluma ngokuqondile esesibhakabhakeni). Ngemva kwalokho ngalinye lamazwi Akhe lizogcwaliseka phakathi neNkathi Yombuso Weminyaka Eyinkulungwane, azoba amaqiniso asobala emehlweni abantu, futhi abantu bazowabona ngamehlo abo ngaphandle kokungabaza. Lena yincazelo ephakeme yokuziguqula kukaNkulunkulu. Okungukuthi, umsebenzi kaMoya ufezekiswa ngenyama, nangamazwi. Lena incazelo enembile yelithi “uLizwi waba yinyama” nethi “Ukubonakala kukaLizwi enyameni.” UNkulunkulu kuphela ongakhuluma intando kaMoya, futhi uNkulunkulu esenyameni kuphela ongakhulumela uMoya; amazwi kaNkulunkulu enziwe acaca ekuguqulweni kukaNkulunkulu, futhi wonke umuntu uqondiswa yiwo. Akekho okhululiwe, bonke bakhona ngobuqhwaga. Yingala mazwi kuphela lapho abantu bengakwazi khona; labo abangakutholi ngale ndlela bayaziphuphela nje uma becabanga ukuthi bangathola amazwi avela ezulwini. Lelo gunya libonakaliswe uNkulunkulu ekuguqulweni abe yinyama: ukwenza ukuba bonke bakholwe. Ngisho kuthiwa ompetha abaqeqeshiwe noma abefundisi bezinkolo angeke bakwazi ukukhuluma la mazwi. Kumele bazithobe kuwo, futhi akekho ongakwazi ukuqalisa. UNkulunkulu uzosebenzisa amazwi ukuze anqobe umhlaba wonke. Uzokwenza lokhu hhayi ngokuguqulelwa enyameni, kodwa ngokusebenzisa amazwi avela umlonyeni kaNkulunkulu ukuze abe yinyama anqobe bonke abantu emhlabeni wonke; yingale ndlela uLizwi eba yinyama, futhi yilokhu kuphela ukubonakala kukaLizwi enyameni. Kungenzeka ukuthi kubantu, kubonakala sengathi uNkulunkulu akakenzi msebenzi ongako—kodwa uNkulunkulu uzophumelelisa amazwi Akhe kubantu ukuze bakholwe ngokuphelele, futhi futhi kubo ukuze bathuthumele. Ngaphandle kwamaqiniso abantu bayamemeza futhi bakhamuluke; ngamazwi kaNkulunkulu, bayathula. UNkulunkulu nakanjani uzolifezekisa leli qiniso, ngoba kuyicebo Lakhe lesikhathi eside: ukufezekisa ukufika kukaLizwi emhlabeni. Eqinisweni, asikho isidingo sokuba ngichaze—ukufika koMbuso Weminyaka Eyinkungwane emhlabeni kuwukufika kwamazwi kaNkulunkulu emhlabeni. IJerusalema elisha lehla livela ezulwini, kuwukufika kwamazwi kaNkulunkulu ukuba aphile phakathi kwabantu, ukuze aphelekezele konke okwenziwa abantu. Leli yicebo elihlelwe uNkulunkulu: amazwi Akhe azovela emhlabeni iminyaka eyinkulungwane, futhi azobonisa zonke izenzo Zakhe, futhi aqedele wonke umsebenzi Wakhe emhlabeni, ngakho lesi sigaba sesintu kumele siphele.
