2017-10-15 The Lord's prayer 主祷文 (6)

发表于 2024-01-08

Were gonna watch a short video of the king Nebuchadnezzar first 我们先看视频,尼布甲尼撒王。Thank God for a member of the home church who made this video for us.感谢主!让家里教会的姊妹为我们编辑出来。Wow, Thats fascinating!哇,实在震撼! Far-out.太酷了。I cant even find the words to describe how stunned I was,我简直就找不到词汇来描述, while watching the video and thinking about the Kingdom, the power, and the glory of God,当一边看片子,一边思想神国度,能力、荣耀,我心是何等的震撼! From the historical evidence we can witness that Gods words are true.这个历史事件,见证神话语实在真实。

1, Yours is the Kingdom forever. 国度是你的,直到永远。

After teaching his disciples to pray,主教导门徒祷告,“your kingdom come, your will be done, 愿你的国降临,愿你的旨意成就,  and for the provision of God ,又祷告神的供应,the forgiveness of God, 神的赦免, and His deliverance,神的拯救,Jesus goes back to the praise of the Farther, 然后主又回到赞美天父,“For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever, and ever.因为国度、权柄、荣耀,全是你的,直到永远。” The word for means because”“for, 是因为的意思,Which emphasized that our Heavenly Father is not just a loving Father ,这强调了天父不只是慈爱的父,He is also the glorious King of All .还是万有之主、荣耀之主。

Lets go back to the story of Nebuchadnezzar, 再回到尼布甲尼撒的故事,who was the king of Babylon, 他是巴比伦国王,and also called the king of kings on the earth. 被称为王中王。from c. 605 BC c. 562 BC公元前605-562年在位, the longest reign of any king of the Neo-Babylonian Empire .是新兴巴比伦帝国在位最久的王。With all his great wealth and manpowe,r他投入大量人力物力, he reconstructed the city of Babylo,n重建巴比伦城, including the hanging gardens of Babylon, 包括出名巴比伦空中花园,which became famous for fabulous architecture, 其建筑美伦美奂, It also became the centre of Mesopotamian Civilization, 巴比伦城被称为美索不达米亚文化中心, and one of the seven wonders of the ancient world .又是世界七大古迹之一。

Can you imagine, 想一下, if you had been Nebuchadnezzar and built such a fabulous city, 如果你是尼布甲尼撒,建了这么一座璀璨的城市, how would you have felt? 感觉如何? Supercool and proud?骄傲得不行?As a human,作为一个人,Nebuchadnezzar, had the same feelings. 尼布甲尼撒的感受就是如此。In (Daniel 4:29-32)(但以理4:29-32, as king was walking on the roof of the royal palace of Babylon, he said, Is not this the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of my majesty? The words were still on his lips when a voice came from heave, “This is what is decreed for you

King Nebuchadnezzar: Your royal authority has been taken from you. 32You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like the ox. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes.” 他游行在巴比伦王宫里。他说:“这大巴比伦不是我用大能大力建为京都,要显我威严的荣耀吗?”这话在王口中尚未说完,有声音从天降下,说:“尼布甲尼撒王啊,有话对你说:你的国位离开你了。你必被赶出离开世人,与野地的兽同居,吃草如牛,且要经过七期。等你知道至高者在人的国中掌权,要将国赐给谁,就赐给谁。”

Then, Nebuchadnezzar, the great king, 于是,尼布甲尼撒这位大君王, went mad and lost his mind.失去理性,成了疯子。 and was driven away from people and ate grass like the cattle. 被赶出离开世人,吃草如牛。It was happened just as in the dream the prophet Daniel interpreted for him ,正如先知但以理所解的梦,which he had received from God a year ago, 神在一年前赐梦给王,说 You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like the ox and be drenched with the dew of heaven.

Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes. 26The command to leave the stump of the tree with its roots means that your kingdom will be restored to you when you acknowledge that Heaven rules. (Daniel 4:25-26) “你必被赶出离开世人,与野地的兽同居,吃草如牛,被天露滴湿,且要经过七期。等你知道至高者在人的国中掌权,要将国赐给谁就赐给谁。守望者既吩咐存留树墩,等你知道诸天掌权,以后你的国必定归你。”(但4:25-26

Our Heavenly Father is full of mercy, 我们的天父充满慈怜,Nebuchadnezzar as an idol worshiper, 尼布甲尼撒拜偶像的, when he saw such splendid architecture that emerged from his rule ,当他看到在他统治下所建成的辉煌建筑,he would of course have been proud of what he had done. 当然会大有成就感。But the intention of the Almighty God was not to destroy him through his madness, 但全能神的心意,不是用发疯来毁掉他, but to edify him .而是要造就他。

It says, your kingdom will be restored to you when you acknowledge that Heaven rules.所以经上说,等你知道诸天掌权,以后你的国必定归你。The position of being a king was given to him again, 于是王位复归与他,after he had suffered the predicted time of insanity, 在照神所预定的受苦的年数过了之后,Thats Gods grace. 这是神的恩典。 He had Nebuchadnezzar suffer, 神使尼布甲尼撒受苦,but it turned out to be an acknowledgement of who God is 最终是要让他认识神。 

He said , 他说 I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever. His dominion is an eternal dominion; his kingdom endures from generation to generation. All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing.He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: What have you done?  (Daniel 4:34-37) 我便称颂至高者,赞美尊敬活到永远的神。祂的权柄是永有的,祂的国存到万代。世上所有的居民,都算为虚无。在天上的万军和世上的居民中,祂都凭自己的意旨行事。无人能拦阻祂手,或问他说:“你做什么呢?”

Can you see that?看到了吗?after suffering correction for his pride for years ,尼布甲尼撒经过几年管教,受了骄傲的苦之后,the king Nebuchadnezzar there after came to a true understanding of who the God of Israel is .他才真知道以色列的神是谁。He sets up kings and deposes them ,神立王废王, God loves sinners, 神爱罪人,even in the OT,就算在旧约时代,God revealed His heart to us through Nebuchadnezzars case. 神借着尼布甲尼撒的例子显露祂的心意。Thank God for His grace, 感谢神的恩典, God said, that it is He the Almighty God, 神说,祂是全能者,who gives the kingdom and power and glory to Nebuchadnezzar as He wishes .祂想把国位、权柄、荣耀赐给尼布甲尼撒,祂就赐给他。

Similarly 我也照样说, can I say it is He the Almighty God who gives the power to Trump to be the president of America as He wishes; 是神把美国总统的职位赐给特朗普,祂就赐给他;It is He the Almighty God who gives power to those who have the governing authority to rule our countries, 那是全能的神,祂愿意把国家交给谁去治理,He wishes it.祂就交给谁。Because in the NT it again confirms that all authorities are from God.因在新约里再一次确定权柄都出于神。 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God(Romans 13:1) 因为(罗13:1)说:在上有权柄的,人人当顺服他,因为没有权柄不是出于神的,凡掌权的都是神所命的。

It says that all authorities are ordained by God,这里说,凡掌权的都是神所命的, So if we submit ourselves to the authority that God has set for us, 因此,若我们服在神为我们命定的权柄之下。 we will be blessed and able to glorify God. 我们就会被赐福,也能荣耀神。But there comes a problem, 但这样问题就来了,“Are we like robots that we must submit ourselves to our human leaders?我们要象机器人一样去顺服领导吗? Should we submit ourselves to our parents like robots?我们要象机器人一样去顺服父母吗?Should we those wives submit ourselves to our husbands like robots?妻子要象机器人一样去顺服丈夫吗?” No不,God never wants us to be like robots.神不要我们象机器人。

But God wants us to trust in His word and His authority.神要我们信靠祂的话、祂的权柄。When Paul the apostle was struck wrongly by the Jewish leader, 犹太领袖冤枉使徒保罗,打他的嘴,he was angry as well, 保罗也生气,and said 也说, God is going to strike you, you whitewashed wall .你这粉饰的墙,神要打你。” (see Acts 23:1-5)23:1-5 However he immediately repented 但他马上悔改了,after someone had told him that the man had been the High priest 因旁边的人告诉他,吩咐打他的人是大祭司,Paul then said保罗于是说, I didnt realize that he was the high priest , for it is written: Do not speak evil about the ruler of your people.”“我不晓得他是大祭司,经上记着说:‘不可毁谤你百姓的官长。’”

Paul submitted himself to the ruler, 保罗顺服了那官长, not because of the leader himself, 不是因为官长本人如何,but because of the word of God. 而是顺服神的话。 For instance比如,when you are driving on a road ,当你正在开车, suddenly you hear a police car is honking behind you,突然你听到警车在后面鸣笛, what will you react? 你会怎么反应?In NZ, you must immediately give way for the policeman.在新西兰,我们必须立即靠边给警察让路。 Because you know that it has nothing to do with the policeman himself, 这和那个开车的警察无关,but has something do with the authority that has been given to him, right?只是因为这权柄给了那警察, 不是吗?

So in the same way, 同样, does it mean that the leader who struck Paul is doing right? 是不是说官长打他打得对呢? Of course not 当然不是, But Paul lay down his rights of judgement to God, 但保罗放下主权交给神来审判,And he believed that God would judge His servants justly in His timing .相信神会照祂的时间审判。So same to us, 对我们也一样,If we turn to Gods word in our circumstances, 如果我们在环境中转向神的话,and pray to crucify our own bitter judgements onto the cross, 把不饶恕和苦毒的判断钉上十字架,and leave room for God to judge, 交给神来审判, we will be effectively free from the bondage of our pride and manipulation and fear. 行这道会使我们从骄傲、操纵和惧怕中得释放。

Because by doing that, 因着这样做,our faith will be made complete by what we act, 信心就会因行为得以完全,it shows that we are truly exalting Jesus to the throne of our hearts that belong to Him. 才是真让耶稣登上我们心灵的宝座。 The word of God is powerful,因为神的话大有能力, If we obey the word of God by denying our own thoughts of what is right or what is wrong  from the flesh, 若我们不顺服自己的想法,“什么是对,什么是错”却顺服神的话, and seeking Gods righteousness, 并寻求神的义,we therefore live in the word of God.那样我们就住在神的话里。

And if we live under the Lordship of the authority of Gods word by denying our natural judgements of what is right or what is wrong, 若我们活在神话语权柄的管制下,不再顺服自己旧人的对错判断观,and seeking Gods righteousness,并追求神的义,we will have the authority of the word of God to overcome the evil one. 我们就得着神话语的权柄去得胜那恶者。For the bible says,因经上说, the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked 1 John 2:6.”人若说他住在主里面,就该自己照主所行的去行(约壹2:6)

I remember when I just became a Christian 12 year ago,我记得当我刚信主,I couldnt be submissive to my husband,我不能顺服丈夫,because I had lived in a law of who is right and who is wrong,”因我活在谁对谁错里面, just as every human being in this world.就像这世上的所有人。if my husband was wrong,若我丈夫做错,I couldnt be submissive to him.我不能顺服他。But God told me, 但神说, who are you to judge someone elses servant?你是谁,竟论断别人的仆人呢?To his own master he stands and falls,他或站立或跌倒,自有祂的主人在,” His word gives me wisdom.神的话给我智慧。I started practicing how to crucify my anger and the thoughts of Im right onto the cross in faith. 那时,我开始操练在信心里将自己的怒气,和“我是对的” 这些意念钉上十字架。

when he was doing wrong and didnt listen to my suggestions, 当他正做错又不肯听我的建议时, And I prayed continually that God would humble him not me,并且我祷告神会自己谦卑他不是我,my role is to listen to God and humble myself to be made in His likeness of righteousness,我的角色是顺服神,谦卑自己,被造成像祂一样的有义, God is good and faithful. 神是真好又信实。Since then从那以后, the arguments and quarrels of who is right and who is wrong never again have room in our family. 那些争“谁对谁错”的争吵再也不能进入我家。Jesus has become the Lord of our family indeed.耶稣成了我家之主。Now Im still learning and practicing how to die to my flesh daily,并且我仍然在学习和操练每天怎样去向己死, because this is the only way to become one with Jesus. 因为这是唯一可以和耶稣合一的道路。

We are all receivers,是的,我们都是领受者。We receive His grace of forgiveness by faith .我们凭信领受神赦免的恩典。 Like the Gentile king, Nebuchadnezzar, 就像外邦王尼布甲尼撒,despite enduring the correction of God ,尽管受了神的管教, eventually he acknowledged who God is.最终却得以认识神。 And he said this 所以他说: (Daniel 4:36) At the same time that my sanity was restored, my honor and splendor were returned to me for the glory of my kingdom. My advisers and nobles sought me out, and I was restored to my throne and became even greater than before.

Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble.(但4:36)那时,我的聪明复归于我,为我国的荣耀威严和光耀也都复归于我,并且我的谋士和大臣也来朝见我。我又得坚立在国位上,至大的权柄加增于我。现在我尼布甲尼撒赞美、尊崇、恭敬天上的王,因为他所做的全都诚实,他所行的也都公平。那行动骄傲的,他能降为卑。You see, 你看, by God Himself, 是神自己,Nebuchadnezzar acknowledged that everything God does is right,使尼布甲尼撒承认,神所做的全都诚实,and all Gods ways are just.祂所行的也都公平。

Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. 主耶稣昨日、今日、一直到永远,都一样。 He also is able to humble us and purify us in His grace. 祂用恩典,使人降为卑,使人得洁净。 If we practice getting rid of our bitterness ,我们若操练除去苦毒,rage and anger,除去愤怒恼恨,if we practice being kind to one another,我们若操练温柔待人,and forgiving each othe,r彼此饶恕,and leave room for God to judge, 让神来断定,we will be free from condemnation.就可以脱离定罪。Because Jesus said, 因主说, dont judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven  (Luke 6:37)  “你们不要论断人,就不被论断;你们不要定人的罪,就不被定罪;你们要饶恕人,就必蒙饶恕。”(路6:37

We are all receivers, 我们都是领受者,We receive His kingdom by His grace .因神的恩典我们领受神的国。We are to ask God to help us to avoid playing Gods role ,我们要求神帮助,让我们不做神的角色,so that we will fall into temptation of judgement and suffer loss. 使我们不受论断试探而遭受损失。The Son Christ who died on the cross for our sins. 神儿子耶稣基督为我们的罪死在十字架上。 King David prayed, 大卫王祷告说, Yours is the kingdom, You are exalted as head over all. 国度也是你的,并且你为至高,为万有之首。” Now the kingdom is not here and there, 神的国不在这里不在哪里, but within us.就在我们里面。 When we pray, 我们祷告说, Yours is the kingdom, You are exalted as head over all. 国度是你的,你为至高,为万有之首。”

It implies, 意思就是,“Yours is the kingdom, 国度是你的,You are exalted as head over our self-esteem seeking. 我不举起我的自尊心,而是要举起你。You are exalted as head over our self-importance seeking, 我不求自己的益处,而是举起你的旨意,You are exalted as head over our self-pride and self-righteousness seeking, 我不举起自高和自义,乃是举起你,You are exalted as head over the possessions of this life we are seeking.我不追求今生财物的满足,而你是我的满足。 You are exalted as head over the self-interest we are seeking.我不寻求自我兴趣的满足,而是举起你的旨意。For Yours is the kingdom, 因为国度是你的, You are exalted as head over all.你为至高,为万有之首。 Now and forever more.现在、直到永远。

2, Yours is the Power forever. 权柄是你的,直到永远。

King David lived a faithful life to God,大卫王活出一个衷心的人生,he spent his whole life to seek to know and to do the will of God. 他花了一生的时间去寻求认识神和神的旨意。 so that he established an intimate relationship with God by his willingness to share the cup of suffering with Jesus.因此借着他的愿意分享基督的苦杯,他和神有着亲密的关系。King David knew the power of God, 大卫认识神的权柄, In 1 Chron 29:11,  he prayed,  代上29:11,他祷告:Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all. 耶和华啊,尊大、能力、荣耀、强胜、威严都是你的;凡天上地下的都是你的;国度也是你的,并且你为至高,为万有之首。

In the Holy Spirit King David declared a truth, that God is the sovereign God 大卫在圣灵里宣告真理,就是神在万事上掌权,and the source of all power in the universe 并且是宇宙一切权柄的源头。 In His great power在祂的大能里, God created the heavens and the earth神创造了天和地。

In His great power ,在祂的大能里, God gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were .神叫人死复活,使无变有。 In Gods power,在神的大能里,Jesus Christ defeated the power of the sin and the grave,耶稣败坏了死权,he was raised from death,并从死里复活, Now He lives with us.并与我们同在。We are gonna look at two different effects and functions of the power of God that we have been given through Jesus. 我们要来看看两种神借基督赐给我们的不同功效的能力。 A, External: the power of God from on High, which helps us to fulfil the great commission. A外在的:从上头来的能力,为帮助我们完成大使命。

When Jesus Christ was resurrected from death, 当耶稣从死里复活,He said this to his disciples,祂对门徒们说,“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, (Matt 28:18-19a) 耶稣进前来,对他们说:天上、地下所有的权柄,都赐给我了。所以你们要去,使万民作我的门徒。 (太28:18-19上)” This is the great commission that Jesus has assigned for us to do, 这是主耶稣托付我们的大使命, To enable his disciples to fulfil the great commission, 为祂的门徒们能完成大使命,Jesus our Lord told them not to try to do the mission until after first being clothed with power from on high. (see Luke 24:49) 主耶稣告诉他们不要去做什么,直等到上头来的能力.路加福音 24:49

And in Acts 1:8,  (徒18Lord Jesus said, 主耶稣说, But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.但圣灵降临在你们身上,你们就必得着能力,并要在耶路撒冷、犹太全地和撒马利亚,直到地极,作我的见证。God has promised the power of the Holy Spirit from on high that would pour out onto us ,因此神应许能力会从上头来浇灌我们, we may receive spiritual gifts. 我们就领受恩赐。such as dreams and visions. (Acts 2:17-18) 就像(2:17-18) 里说的,有异梦异像的恩赐, which help us to fulfil the great commission. 这能帮助我们完成大使命。 not to give us personal marvellous experiences so that we feel like superman. 这不是给我们个人有什么特殊的经历,使我们觉得自己比别人强。 

B, Internal: the power of God from the dwelling of the Holy Spirit sanctifies and transforms us into His-likeness. B 内在的:从圣灵内在来的能力,使我们能成圣,生命得像祂。

In Eph 1:19 1:19-20, Paul the apostle Paul says 使徒保罗说, "I pray that you'll begin to understand the incredible greatness of his power for us who believe. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at Gods right hand in the heavenly realms.并知道他向我们这信的人所显的能力是何等浩大,就是照他在基督身上所运行的大能大力,使他从死里复活,叫他在天上坐在自己的右边。

This reveals a fact that the same power which worked in Christ,这显明了一个事实,就是这在基督身上运行的大能, and raised him from dead and seated him in the heavenly realms is in us now.使他从死里复活,坐在天上的大能正在我们里面。The function of the power of the Spirit in us is to raise us from death,这个圣灵大能的功能在我们里面是为使我们死里复活, and to transform us into His likeness.并使我们能改变像祂。Jesus not only tells us what He wants us to do in the power of the Holy Spirit,耶稣不单是告诉我们, 在圣灵大能里,他想要我们“做的”,but also what we are called TO BE in the power of the Holy Spirit. 更是告诉我们,在圣灵大能里,他要我们“成为”的。

There are two ways,神赐能力成就两种果效: External and Internal .外在的和内在的。To Be and To Do in the Power of God we have been given .在圣灵能力中我们被赐予 “所做的”和“所是的”。! If we only pay attention to the external call of what we are to do ?若我们只是注重外在的呼召,去做什么? and neglect the internal call of what we are to be ?忽视内在的呼召,成为“是什么”? that can be dangerous. 这会很危险。 As Paul said 因此保罗说,But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified for the prize. (1 Cor 9:27)  我是攻克己身,叫身服我,恐怕我传福音给别人,自己反被弃绝了。”

What Pauls saying is that not only does he need the power from on high to enable him to fulfil the task,在这里保罗是说,他不仅需要上头来的能力去完全使命, but also he needs to kill his sinful desires in the power of God,更需要得能力去治死自己的私欲,so that he would be free from the controlling power of the desires of the natural body.因此他就会从天然人的欲望的捆锁中被释放得自由。Therefore, the power of God will not only pour out on us from on high ,所以神的能力不单会从上头来浇灌我们,but also in us to free us from the power of all kinds of sins and bondages ,更是要在我们的里面释放我们脱离各样的捆绑,and continuously make us new.不断的更新我们。

This power of God is not like any human power to control or manipulate anyone else, 这神的权能,不像人的权力只为想控制和操纵他人,Gods power is in Love that He wants us to be free. 神的权能是在爱中,祂要释放我们得自由。 In other words,换句话说,the power of God in us is to help us to kill our own pride, 神的权能在我们里面,是为帮助我们治死我们自己的骄傲,our own temper and our own sinful desires ,和我们的脾气和各种私欲,but not to help us to kill others. 但不是要我们去治死他人的私欲。

Its not to help us to kill our husbands flesh,神的能力不是要帮我们去治死我们的丈夫的旧人, or our wives flesh ,或让我们去治死妻子的旧人, or our childrens flesh,或孩子的旧人, or our classmates flesh,或我们同学的旧人 ,or our flatmates flesh,或室友的旧人,but to help us to kill our own flesh. 却是要帮助我们治死自己的私欲旧人。If we pray in the right direction in faith ,若我们在正确的方向里祷告,we all can experience this great transformative power in us. 我们就能经历这已经住在我们里面的,改变生命的大能。That's one of the practical ways of circumcision of the heart,这是心做割礼的一条实际行道的路。Please listen, God concerns what we are going to be more than what we are going to do. 请听,神关注我们将要成为什么样的人,绝对超过关注我们要做什么。Are we going to be more like Christ or are we still going to be like Adam, that is what He concerns. 我们正越来越像基督还是像亚当是神所关注的。

I remember that three years after I became a Christian,我记得我信主三年后,my mom came to visit me,我母亲来看我, and said to the home church, 她对教会的肢体说, who is this ?这人是谁? I dont know her,我不认识她,She looks like my daughte,r她看着像我女儿,but she isnt,但她却不是,” Later on, my older brother came,不久,我哥哥也来看我, and said the same words, 说了一样的话, And added this, She has become a real Christian.” 并说,她成了真正的基督徒。I thank God for the way, the truth, the life, 我为道路,真理,生命感谢神,which is not a theory ,这不是一个理论, but a practical way that we can follow through the power of the Holy Spirit, 却是一条可行的路,借着圣灵的能力,我们可以跟随,and then we can be made brand new.并且我们可以成为全新的人。

Thank God!感谢主! our Lord Jesus has taken back all authority in heaven and on earth,我们的主耶稣已经夺回天上地上所有的权柄,and gives it to us through His Spirit .并借祂的圣灵也赐给了我们。Now现在, nothing can harm us.没有什么可以害我们。 Jesus said 主耶稣说, I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. (Luke 10:19) 我已经给你们权柄可以践踏蛇和蝎子,又胜过仇敌一切的能力,断没有什么能害你们”(路10:19 

The power of God in us is to help us to overcome the power of sin of the flesh ,这神的能力在我们里面是帮助我们胜过肉体和罪的能力,and the power of Satan,并撒旦的能力,we should not fear, 不要怕,but believe .只要信。

So how many of you are afraid of being alone in your room when it is dark ?我们当中有多少人,当房间里黑的时候就害怕? Fear not 不要怕, Gods power is the source of ALL.神的权柄是一切权柄的源头。In your fear,在你惧怕时,you may praise God for who He is, 你当起来赞美神,and exalt Him above all.高举祂超过一切。You may ask for forgiveness to forgive yourself,或许你该祈求赦免, or forgive those who sinned against you.或饶恕那些得罪你的人。

Or you may give your life to Him,或许那时你当祷告把你的生命献给祂,and rebuke the dark power to go in the name of the Lord ,并且奉主名斥责黑暗权势离开,The name of the Lord is powerful enough to cast out all fears from us.主耶稣的名里有丰富的大能驱赶一切惧怕。 So after finishing this message,等会我讲完信息,Im gonna show you a video,我会放一个视频,in which you may see a glimpse of the power of Gods kingdom amongst us. 或许从中看见一点神国度的大能。

3, Yours is the glory forever. 荣耀是你的,直到永远。

In Revelation 5:13, “And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!” 启5:13我又听见在天上、地上、地底下、沧海里和天地间一切所有被造之物,都说:但愿颂赞、尊贵、荣耀、权势都归给坐宝座的和羔羊,直到永永远远。”

Yes是的, Only the Lamb is worthy to receive glory and honor and power forever and eve.r惟有神羔羊是配得一切的荣耀、尊贵、直到永远。 Jesus, who is the creator,耶稣,万物的创造主,but lay down His life and shed his blood for the forgiveness of our sins.却为赦免我们罪,舍命流宝血。 All Glory Belongs to God.所有的荣耀当归神。However但是,the flesh is so deceitful,我们的旧人是诡诈的, it always wants to steal glory like what Nebuchadnezzar did.它总是要偷窃。Thank God!感谢主!that He has given us His Spirit to do the circumcision of our hearts 祂赐我们圣灵来给我们的心做割礼。(Romans 2:29) But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. 2:29惟有里面作的,才是真犹太人;真割礼也是心里的,在乎灵,不在乎仪文。这人的称赞不是从人来的,乃是从神来的。

Paul the apostle tells us, who is a real Jew?” 使徒保罗教导我们,“谁是真犹太人?” Not those who read lots of scriptures and just have knowledge in the head, 不是那些读过很多圣经,头脑里有一大堆知识的,and show to others that we know something, 在人前去炫耀自己知道点什么, yet still seeking praise from men, 却还在求人的荣耀的人。but those who practice seeking praise from God inwardly, 而是那些操练在内心里寻求神,and allow the Spirit to do circumcision of the heart, 让圣灵在心里作割礼,that is to die to our self-defensive thoughts, 就是向一切自我保全的思想死,and anything from our selfish desires for the Lords sake,为主的缘故向所有自私的意念死, even taking risk. 甚至承受险境。

The prophet Isaiah prophesied, Therefore a strong people will glorify you. A city of awesome nations will fear you. (Isa 25:3)” 所以 , 刚强的民必荣耀你; 强暴之国的城必敬畏你 。Who is the strong people that Isaiah prophesied? 谁是以赛亚所语言的那刚强的民? They are the people who are strong in the Lord .他们是那些在主里刚强的人。The Bible says, 经上说, they overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb,他们胜过撒旦因羔羊的血, and by the word of their testimony,和他们自己所见证的道, they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from deathsee Re 12:11他们虽至于死,也不爱惜性命!
