(Matt 9:27-34)(太9:27-34

 

Last Thursday evening, 上周四晚上,we had the first international gathering我们举行了第一次国际信徒团契,with approximately 20 people who were from five nationalities. 有来自五个国家的大约20人参加。After making dumplings together and eating them up,在一起包饺子和吃饺子后,everyone introduced himself, 每人都作了自我介绍,and some people did their personal testimonies about Gods love and faithfulness in their sufferings and difficulties,还有肢体起来见证了神的爱和他们在苦难中的信心,which was awesome! 好棒!

Jing testified, Jing见证说,that her son was sick and had quite a high temperature last Sunday.上周日她儿子生病发高烧。But she had an assurance in her heart, 但她心里有确据,that God would heal him if she came to the church to pray with the brothers and sisters. 如果她去教会和兄弟姐妹们一起祷告,神会医治孩子。She said, 她说,“I desperately wanted to seek comfort from the Lord through repentance, 我切望借着悔改寻求主的安慰,which had been quite clearly revealed to me by the Holy Spirit. 这是圣灵明明指示我的。She said, 她说,“Interestingly, 有趣的是,before the international service started, 国际聚会开始之前,Sister V said something to me V姐妹和我讲话,which I couldn't agree more, 我太认同了,even if it was just a chat, 虽然好像只是在聊天,she said, 她说,‘You just need to repent of your own sins,你要做的就是悔改自己的罪,and it is simple, 很简单,the prayer can be just a few words.”或许只是祷告几句话。

Jing testified Jing见证说 that during the Service, 聚会时,she prayed and repented of what she had done in the past.她就为过去所做的事祷告认罪,She prayed for reconciliation by forgiving others who had hurt her.愿意饶恕伤害过她的人并寻求和睦。She also texted her mother-in-law on her birthday, 婆婆生日那天她发了信息问候, although they hadn't talked to each other since last Christmas because of some small issues. 因为一些小事她和婆婆去年圣诞节后都没有联系过。Then she realised, that she had strength to love her mother in law.那天她发现自己是力量爱婆婆的。The very next day, 而就在第二天,her sons fever was gone after he spewed out some yucky stuff. 儿子吐出一些东西烧就退了。And her small health issue was healed as well. 并且她自己身体的一个小问题也得了医治。

I was encouraged by her faith! 她的信心鼓舞了我!For she only became a Christian 6 months ago, 因为她六个月前才刚信主,but weve all witnessed that she is growing in the Lord. 但我们都见证了她在主里的成长。Praise be unto God! 神是应当称颂的!Last Sunday, 上周日,we learnt that Faith is contrary to sight, 我们讲到信心与眼见是相反的。and faith comes from the word of God not by sight. 信心不是从眼见来,乃是从神的话来。Today, we are continuing to look at the message of faith Matt 9: 27-34: 今天,我们继续看关于“信心”。太9:27-34:

In the bible, 在圣经中,we see that it is faith that made Jesus marvel, 我们看见是信心使耶稣希奇,then, He did exactly what people had asked for. 然后祂就成全了那人的所求。We also want this, dont we?我们也想要吗?Lets find out the secret here, 现在让我们来揭晓这个秘密,when the two blind men received their sight because of their faith. 两个瞎子因他们的信心重获光明。V,29Then he touched their eyes and said, According to your faith let it be done to you; 30 and their sight was restored. 【太9:29-30上】耶稣就摸他们的眼睛,说:“照着你们的信给你们成全了吧!”他们的眼睛就开了。This is not according to our own goodness, 不是因我们好,nor our own good works, 也不是因我们做得好,but faith.  而是因信心!“without faith it is impossible to please God! “人非有信,就不能得神的喜悦”!“Am I pleasing God? “我讨神的喜悦了吗? What should I do to make Jesus amazed at my faith? “我怎样行才能使耶稣对我的信心感到希奇?

What are the essential components of faith? 那么信心包含哪些要素呢? Faith is not an empty slogan. 信心不是一个空洞的口号。“Yes, Lord, I believe in you! Yet without acting. “是的,主啊,我信你! 但却没有行为。No! 不是这样的!In the text, 在这段经文里,these two-blind men demonstrated their faith, 两个瞎子行出信心的行为,which Jesus confirmed, 耶稣也确认了他们的信心,so that they received healing.他们就得了医治。Whether physical healing无论是身体or the healing of our souls, 还是灵魂without being confirmed in our faith by Jesus, 若没有耶稣对我们信心的确认,we cant be healed. 都不能得着医治。During the last 14 years of my ministry, 在过去14年的牧会中, Ive witnessed that some broken-hearted people, 我目睹了很多伤心的人,who were full of self-pity,他们心中 充满自怜, and always considered themselves as victims 总觉得自己是受害者,because believed that they had been wronged and mistreated,因为觉得自己被冤枉了、被恶待了,unfortunately, 不幸的是,because they retained the old way of thinking 因他们活在旧人的思维里without showing faith in the word of God,却不肯信神的话,their wounds were unhealed. 他们的伤害没有得医治。So how did these two blind men demonstrate their faith?那么这两个瞎子是如何显出他们的信心呢?It contains three elements: 这里包括了三个要点:

 

1, Faith contains Knowing who Jesus is. V.27. 信,需要知道耶稣是谁(27节)

 v.27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, Have mercy on us, Son of David! 【太9:27】耶稣从那里往前走,有两个瞎子跟着他,喊叫说:“大卫的子孙,可怜我们吧!” Interestingly, 有趣的是,why were the two blind men seeking mercy specifically from the Son of David? 为什么这两个瞎子特特的向大卫的子孙寻求怜悯? What did they believe in calling Jesus the Son of David? 他们为什么称耶稣为大卫的子孙? There are 17 bible verses in the NT which describe Jesus as the Son of David. 新约圣经中有17处提到耶稣是“大卫的子孙”。Primarily, 重要的是,the title Son of David is a Messianic title. “大卫的子孙”这个称呼是一个弥赛亚的称呼。Because in the OT, 因为在旧约中,God promised that He would raise an offspring of David to be the King of Israel. 神应许要兴起大卫的后裔作以色列王。Both in Micah 5:2, and in Isaiah 7:14, 在弥迦书5:2和以赛亚书7:14the prophets prophesied the birth of the Messiah King.两位先知都预言了弥赛亚王的降生。 2, But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me, one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. 【弥5:2】伯利恒以法他啊,你在犹大诸城中为小。将来必有一位从你那里出来,在以色列中为我作掌权的;他的根源从亘古、从太初就有。Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. 【赛7:14】因此,主自己要给你们一个兆头,必有童女怀孕生子,给他起名叫以马内利(就是“ 神与我们同在”的意思)。

And when Jesus Christ was born, 当耶稣基督降生时,it fulfilled the prophecy. 预言就应验了。So these two blind men might have heard the message about Jesus birth, 这两个瞎子或许听见了耶稣降生的信息,and they believed that Jesus Christ was the Messiah King whom the Jews had been waiting for a long time. 他们信耶稣基督就是犹太人盼望已久的弥赛亚王。Faith comes from hearing, hearing from the word of God! 【罗10:17】可见信道是从听道来的,听道是从基督的话来的。 These two blind men definitely knew many of the messianic passages about Christ in the OT, 这两个瞎子绝对知道旧约中许多关于救主弥赛亚的经文,that when Christ the King came, 当基督来的时候,he would be like a shepherd-king and show mercy to Gods people.他会像好牧人一样,对神的子民施慈爱。 

For example, in Ezekiel 34:16, I will search for the lost and bring back the strays.例如,在以西结书3416,失丧的,我必寻找,被逐的,我必领回。 I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak, but the sleek and the strong I will destroy.受伤的,我必缠裹,有病的,我必医治;只是肥的壮的,我必除灭。 I will shepherd the flock with justice.也要秉公牧养他们。  Because of sin, the Jewish people had lost their way, 因为罪,犹太人如羊走迷,each one had turned to his own way, 各人偏行己路,and they were spiritually crippled.他们是属灵上的瘸子。But they believed that when the Messiah king came, 但他们相信,当弥赛亚王到来时,he would show mercy to Gods people.他会怜悯神的子民。Its true that salvation comes from Jesus!这是真的,拯救从耶稣来! And Jesus is the true light who gives light to every man in the world! (see John 1:9) 耶稣是真光,照亮一切生在世上的人!(见约翰福音1:9

Therefore, in faith these two blind men presented their faith by desperately calling out, We know who You are!凭着信,这两个瞎子迫切呼叫,“我们知道你是谁!” You alone are the Messiah King who has come to save and reign! 唯有你是施行拯救,掌权的弥赛亚王!Son of David,大卫的子孙,Have mercy on us!可怜我们吧!

 

2, Faith contains a time of testing. V,27-28a信,要经历时间的考验(27-28节上)

27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him28a When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, Do you believe that I am able to do this? How often when we say a prayer if there is no response, we just give up?有多少次我们祷告没有得回应时,就轻易放弃了?In this passage, what genuine faith looks like is revealed! 在这段经文中,揭示了真信到底是怎样的!In 1 Peter 1:7, it says, 7 These trials will show that your faith is genuine.彼得前书17说,这些试炼必表明你的信心是真实的。 It is being tested as fire tests and purifies goldthough your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world. 耀

In other words, tests show whether your faith is valid or invalid. 换句话说,试炼能显出你的信心是真的还是假的。These two blind men presented their faith to Jesus by calling out that they believed Jesus was the Christ.这两个瞎子大声喊叫相信耶稣是基督,这便显出了他们的信心。But that was not enough!但这还不够!because Jesus didnt reply to them.因为耶稣还没有回答他们。If we want to establish a deeper relationship with Jesus, 如果我们想和耶稣建立更深的关系,it also isnt enough to just believe that Jesus is God who forgives our sins with our mouths. 仅仅用嘴说相信耶稣是神,能赦免我们的罪是不够的。Our faith must be tested and proven genuine! 我们的信心必须经过试炼来证明是真的!In v. 27-28, the two blind men followed Jesus all the way to a house. 27-28节,两个瞎子一路跟着耶稣。

Think about it, what would happen if you cry out for help beside me, 想想看,如果你在我身边大声呼叫,I pretend that I dont hear, 我假装没听见,and I continue to go on my way, 我继续一路走,would you still follow? 你还会跟着吗?Would you react negatively? 你的思想会不会负面起来?“he looks down on mehe rejects me…他看不起我,拒绝我...because Im a poor blind man 因为我是个可怜的盲人,so he despises me…所以他鄙视我...

The feeling of rejection kills our faith! 接受拒绝感扼杀信心!Dont fix your eyes on people 不要定睛认人,and then you complain about what people have done to you你就抱怨人对你作了什么, or complain about your circumstances也不要抱怨环境, it only fails the testing of your faith! 这只能让你信心考试失败!Because they are just tools to test your faith! 因人和环境只是考你信心的工具!Jesus is omniscient and he judges justly. 主耶稣是全知的,祂会公义审判。These two blind men couldnt see but they fixed the eyes of their hearts on Jesus! 这两个瞎子虽看不见,但他们心里的眼睛却注视着耶稣!They didnt harbour any feelings of rejection,他们没有怀揣接受拒绝感,while they were following Jesus all the way to a house.当他们在跟着耶稣一路走到房子里时。The enemy will tempt us with feelings of rejection, 仇敌会用拒绝伤害来试探我们,and Jesus also challenges our faith by allowing trials into our lives!耶稣也会允许试炼进入我们的生活来挑战我们的信心!

In the OT, 在旧约,God allowed Joseph to be sold into slavery in Egypt by his twelve brothers, 神允许约瑟被他的十个兄弟卖到埃及当奴隶,but Joseph didnt accept feelings of rejection or complain about God and his brothers, 但约瑟没有接受拒绝伤害或抱怨神和他的兄弟,rather, he chose to believe in Gods good will.相反,他选择相信神有美意。So Joseph eventually received what God had promised him.于是约瑟最终得到了神所应许他的一切。

David, was rejected by King Saul, 大卫被扫罗王所拒绝,but he didnt accept feelings of rejection, 但他不接受被拒绝的感觉,even though he was like a wanderer and chased by King Saul in the desert for more than 10 years, 尽管他像个流浪汉一样,在沙漠中被扫罗追杀了十多年,yet he still believed in Gods good plan, 但他仍然相信神有美意,and followed Gods commands, 听从神的命令,after 22 years of testing his faith, 经过22年的考验,he eventually became the King of Israel just as God had promised him.他最终成为了以色列的王,就像神应许他的那样。

There is a time of waiting for Gods timing in the test of our faith, 在我们的信心的考验中,有一段等待神的时机,in which we need to learn how to die to our own impatience, self-defensive thoughts, 在这个时候,我们需要学习如何治死我们自己的不耐烦、自我防卫的思想,and all the thoughts that are not from the truth, 以及所有不来自真理的想法。which produces perseverance; divine character, and hope in the word of God.因为真理生出忍耐和属天的品格,以及从神话语中的盼望。

Another example in the NT, 新约中还有一个例子,the Canaanite woman who came to Jesus, 就是那到耶稣跟前的迦南妇人,crying out, Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me!喊着说,主啊,大卫的子孙,可怜我! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.我女儿被鬼附得甚苦。” Jesus didnt say a word, 耶稣没有说一句话,we didnt see mercy but mercilessness here!我们没有看到怜悯,而是看到“无情”!Imagine, if you were the woman, 想象一下,如果你是那个女人,and you had asked me for help, 你都这样求我了,but I didnt answer you, 但我没有回答你,and the people around me tried to drive you away, 我周围的人都想把你赶走,then I said to you, 然后我对你说,“I was sent only to the lost sheep of this church…我奉差遣只是为这个教会迷失的羊…Its not right to take the childrens bread and toss it to the dogs! 不好拿儿女的饼,丢给狗吃!” What would come to your mind?你会想到什么?

Would you feel rejected?你会觉得被拒绝吗?Angry?生气?“What?”“什么?” You called me a dog?你说我是狗?You despised me!你瞧不起我!You insulted me!你侮辱了我!…Ill never ask for help from you…我再也不会求你了……” These are the natural reactions of mankind! 这是人的自然反应!“Yes it is, Lord, she said. Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters table. 妇人说:「主啊,不错;但是狗也吃它主人桌子上掉下来的碎渣儿。太 15:27 She humbly accepted the reality of a sinful life that the Holy One Jesus revealed, 她谦卑地接受了耶稣所揭示的真相,which was as unclean as dogs, 充满罪的生命就像狗一样不洁净,but she put her hope in the saving hands of the Master.但她把得救的希望交在主人的手中。So it seemed that she was saying, 所以她好像在说:“Yes Lord, you were sent only to the lost sheep of Israel. “是,你奉 。” Yes, were indeed like dogs, (we are unclean Gentiles), and unworthy of any favour. 是,我们的确像狗(我们是不洁净的外邦人),不值得你爱。But I look to Your mercy, 但我仰望你的慈爱, even dogs are in the masters house! 连狗都住在主人家里的啊!They belong to the Master!他们属于主人!We look to Your merciful salvation to save us, 我们仰望你怜恤的救恩临到我们,so that we are no longer like dogs oppressed by demons!使我们不再像狗一样被魔鬼辖制!

The womans faith remained strong through the testing of her faith! 迦南妇人的信心经过试炼仍然坚定!She wasnt overwhelmed by feelings of rejection, anger, self-pity, or other negative emotional thoughts, 她不但没被被拒绝感、恼怒、自怜等等负面情绪淹没,instead, she showed genuine faith in Jesus! 反而她表明了她对基督的真信!Thats why Jesus called her a woman with great faith!  为此,耶稣称她为大有信心的妇人!What have you learnt from these people s faith? 你从这些人的信心里学到了什么?What do you need to fight against in your prayers,你在祷告里要抵挡什么,so that you may stand firm during the testing of your faith?以至于你才能在信心的考试中可以站稳?

When we look at the author and perfecter of our faith Jesus, 我们再来看为我们的信心创始成终的耶稣,here, 32-34节说,v32-34, While they were going out, a man who was demon-possessed and could not talk was brought to Jesus. 他们出去的时候,有人将鬼所附的一个哑巴带到耶稣跟前来。 33 And when the demon was driven out, the man who had been mute spoke. The crowd was amazed and said, Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel. 鬼被赶出去,哑巴就说出话来。众人都希奇,说:“在以色列中,从来没有见过这样的事。” 34 But the Pharisees said, It is by the prince of demons that he drives out demons. 法利赛人却说:“他是靠着鬼王赶鬼。”(马太福音 9:27-34) Jesus cast out demons from a mute 耶稣把鬼从哑巴身上赶出去,and the mute spoke. 哑巴就说出话来。But Jesus was blasphemed, and it was said that it was through the prince of demons that he drove out demons. 可人却诽谤耶稣说他是靠着鬼王赶鬼。What does Jesus faith look like?耶稣的信是怎样的?

John Nelson Hyde, who was a missionary to Punjab India, 二十世纪初被差到印度旁遮省宣教的约翰海德,and called the apostle of prayer in the beginning of the 20th century. 被称为祷告的使徒。One of his famous quotes is, 他有一句名言,“Give me souls, oh God, or I die! “神啊,赐给我失丧的灵魂,不然让我死!” In Hydes prayer he saw that Jesus, 在海德的祷告里,他看到耶稣,became a dog, a Pariah dog for him. ”为了他,成为一只狗,一只贱狗。Hyde said this with tears, 海德含着泪说:“Jesus had taken the dogs place. 耶稣取了狗的地位,This was too awful to think of,想起来实在太可怕了,but when I thought about His life, I came to the conclusion但我回想祂的一生,得着的结论就是如此,that the life of Christ had more of the characteristics of a dogs life.基督的一生有许多丧家之犬的特征。Christ had nowhere to live, 基督没有枕头的地方,this is how the dogs of the East live,东方的流浪狗也是这样,and Christ was homeless, 基督没有家,the dogs of the East receive constant kicks and blows from men. 东方的流浪狗也常常被人拳打脚踢。And this is how men treated our beloved Saviour, 人就是这样对待我们所爱的救主,driven away from men, 把他从人群中赶出去,receiving cruel words, scoffs, blows, 斥之以暴力的言语,嘲笑、怒斥,and at the last cruelly killed. 最终还残忍地杀了他。

Our Lord Christ Jesus didnt accept a sense of rejection, 我们的主耶稣没有接受被拒绝,so that he defended himself with his own mouth.以至于要开口为自己辩解。Rather, he entrusted himself to the Father who judges justly. 他做了相反的事,就是把自己交给按公义审判众人的主。Christ stood firm in faith throughout all these tests! 基督在一切试炼中站立住了!Therefore, 因此,the Father raised him from the dead, 父使他死里复活,and exalted him to the highest place, 将他升至最高,and gave him the name that is above every name! 赐给他那超乎万名之上的名!At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 天上、地上、地底下的,因耶稣的名无不屈膝,and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord, 无不口称“耶稣基督为主,” to the glory of God the Father! 使荣耀归于父神!

Brothers and sisters, 弟兄姊妹,this is the ultimate example of faith that we should follow. 这就是我们信心跟随的终极榜样!For God has promised us, 因神应许了我们,“Heb 10:35 Do not throw away your trust, for your reward will be great. 36 You must be willing to wait without giving up. After you have done what God wants you to do, God will give you what He promised you. 所以,你们不可丢弃勇敢的心;存这样的心必得大赏赐。 你们必须忍耐,使你们行完了 神的旨意,就可以得着所应许的。( 10:35-36) James 1:12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.  忍受试探的人是有福的,因为他经过试验以后,必得生命的冠冕;这是主应许给那些爱他之人的。 ( 1:12)

In other words, 换句话说,blessed is not the one who lives a cosy life in this life, 生活舒适安逸的人不见得有福,but the one whose faith has been proven genuine through trials, 是经过试炼被证明有真信心的人才有福,for he has demonstrated that he doesnt love the desires of the flesh but God and his enemies just as Jesus did, 因显明他所爱的是神和爱他的仇敌,而不是肉体的私欲,正如耶稣所行,therefore, he will receive the crown of life as a great reward. 因而他将承受生命的冠冕,得着这极大的奖赏。

 

3, Faith contains believing that God is able. V.28信,是相信神能够(28节)

28, when he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, Do you believe that I am able to do this? Yes, Lord, they replied. 耶稣进了房子,瞎子就来到他跟前。耶稣说:“你们信我能做这事吗?”他们说:“主啊,我们信。” After a time of testing when they followed Jesus all the way to a house without receiving any response, 两个瞎子一路被试验,他们跟着耶稣,啥都没得着,instead of healing the two blind men, 耶稣不但没有医治他们,Jesus challenged them again by saying, 还在继续挑战他们,说“do you believe that I am able to do this? “你们信我能做这事吗?” Is this such an important thing to believe that God is able? 难道信神凡事都能 那么重要吗?Yes! Thats crucial! 是!至关重要!It proclaims that we believe in a God who is omnipotent and sovereign! 那是在宣告我们所信的神是全能的,祂掌权!

In Genesis, 在创世纪,God had promised to make Abraham the father of a great nation, 神应许亚伯拉罕要成为多国的父,and naturally Abraham needed a son in order for that promise to come true. 自然而然亚伯拉罕就应当有儿子继承。After 24 years of waiting, 可等了24年,Abraham and Sarah were as good as dead, 当亚伯拉罕和撒拉都老迈了,in terms of procreating a child. 生育也断绝了。When the Lord appeared to them, 当神再向他们显现,and proclaimed that they would have a son next year, 宣告明年这个时候他们必有一个儿子,Sarah laughed to herself, 撒拉就心里暗笑, Then the Lord said to Abraham, 于是神对亚伯拉罕说,“Why did Sarah laugh?”撒拉为什么暗笑?Is anything too hard for the Lord? (see Gen 18:13-14) 耶和华岂有难成的事吗?( 18:13-14) Abrahams example simply shows that faith is being fully convinced that God is able to do what he has promised (see Romans 4:21). 亚伯拉罕的榜样表明,信是“满心相信神的应许必能成就”(罗421)。Jesus also said this in Mark 9:23,主在(马可福音 9:23)说, If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.  “你若能信,在信的人,凡事都能。”Our God is sovereign and omnipotent! 我们的神无所不能,完全掌权!He is El Shaddai, the God Almighty! 祂是伊勒沙代,全能的神!The Creator King of the universe! 万有的创造主!The King of kings and the Lord of lords! 是万王之王、万主之主!With Him nothing is impossible! 在祂没有难成的事! 

Does God really care? 神真的顾念人吗?Is He really in control? 祂真的掌权吗?Our doubts contribute nothing but only raise our anxiety levels, 我们的怀疑只提升焦虑,tear faith down and mess lives up! 拆毁信心,搞乱生活!Faith makes the impossible possible! 信心使不可能的事成为可能!The blind see, 信心使瞎子看见,the deaf hear, 聋子听见,the mute speak, 哑巴说话,the lame walk, 瘸子行走,the dead are raised! 死人复活!God is able! 神是全能的!And the same yesterday, today and forever! 昨日、今日直到永远,是一样的!He cares for our needs spiritually, mentally, and physically! 祂顾念我们的属灵上、精神上、身体上的一切需要!Jesus asks: "Do you believe that I am ABLE to do this?" (Matt. 9:28). 耶稣说:“你们信我能做这事吗?”(太928

Shall we together declare the word of God in faith to conclude the message? 让我们一起信心宣告神的话作为讲道的结束好吗?“And God is ABLE to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work. (2 Cor. 9:8). 神能将各样的恩惠多多地加给你们,使你们凡事常常充足,能多行各样善事。 (哥林多后书 9:8)  Now to Him who is ABLE to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen (Eph. 3:20-21). 神能照着运行在我们心里的大力充充足足地成就一切,超过我们所求所想的。但愿他在教会中,并在基督耶稣里,得着荣耀,直到世世代代,永永远远。阿们!(以弗所书 3:20-21)

 

God is able to deliver you: 神能拯救你:

"Because he himself is suffered, when he was tempted, He is ABLE to help those who are being tempted" (Heb. 2:18). 他自己既然被试探而受苦,就能搭救被试探的人。(希伯来书 2:18)

 

God is able to keep what you have committed to Him: 神能保全你交托祂的:

"For this reason, I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know in whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is ABLE to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day" (2 Tim. 1:12). 为这缘故,我也受这些苦难。然而我不以为耻;因为知道我所信的是谁,也深信他能保全我所交付他的(或译:他所交托我的),直到那日。 (提摩太后书 1:12)

 

God is able to save you to the end 神能拯救你到底:

25 And so Jesus is ABLE, now and forever, to save from the punishment of sin all who come to God through Him because He lives forever to pray for them (Heb 7:25). 凡靠着他进到神面前的人,他都能拯救到底;因为他是长远活着,替他们祈求。(希伯来书 7:25)

 

God is able to keep you from falling神能保守你们不失脚:

 "Now unto him that is ABLE to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen" (Jude 24-25). 那能保守你们不失脚、叫你们无瑕无疵、欢欢喜喜站在他荣耀之前的我们的救主-独一的 神, 愿荣耀、威严、能力、权柄,因我们的主耶稣基督归与他,从万古以前并现今,直到永永远远。阿们!(犹大书 1:24-25)

 

Jesus says to you: "Do you believe that I am ABLE to do this?" (Matt. 9:28). 耶稣说:“你们信我能做这事吗?”(太928Only faith enables us to receive what God has promised! 我们的信,让我们得着神所应许的!Without faith, no one can please God. 人非有信,不能得神的喜悦。Faith makes the impossible possible!信,让不可能的事成为可能!

Lord, You are ABLE, Nothing is too hard for You! You made the Heaven and the Earth, and there is nothing too hard for You! 主啊,你能成就,在你没有难成的事!你创造天地,在你没有难成的事!
