Faith of Jesus Christ

耶穌基督的信實

不管一个人信不信神,但人心灵深处或多或少总会思索有关神的事.
不论您知不知道有神,这世上的确有真神和假神.
这里有一段对假神的描述:
诗篇 115:4-8 他们的偶像、是金的银的、是人手所造的。有口却不能言.有眼却不能看.有耳却不能听.有鼻却不能闻.有手却不能摸.有脚却不能走.有喉咙也不能出声。造他的要和他一样.凡靠他的也要如此。
那您或许会问: 那真神呢?如何区别真神和假神呢?其实真神和假神是很容易区分的:真神只给不要,真神赐给我们生命,赐给我们空气,赐给我们阳光,赐给我们水…..他不会向我们要油香钱,不会向我们要牛羊,….. 真神只给不要,一切都是他造的, 都是他的,他若需要什么,他也不须要和我们说,若他真要向我们要一样东西的话,那或许就是我们对真神的感谢了:
诗篇 50:7-15我的民哪、你们当听我的话.以色列阿、我要劝戒你.我是 神、是你的 神。我并不因你的祭物责备你.你的燔祭常在我面前。我不从你家中取公牛、也不从你圈内取山羊。因为树林中的百兽是我的、千山上的牲畜也是我的。山中的飞鸟、我都知道.野地的走兽、也都属我。我若是饥饿、我不用告诉你.因为世界、和其中所充满的、都是我的。 我岂吃公牛的肉呢.我岂喝山羊的血呢。你们要以感谢为祭献与 神.又要向至高者还你的愿.并要在患难之日求告我、我必搭救你.你也要荣耀我。
亲爱的弟兄姊妹们,在我们还不认识主耶稣时,我们不懂得感谢,更不会求告他.如今我们认识了主耶稣基督,唯一的真神,我们理应感谢他为我们所作的一切,他不仅将所造的万物赐给我们,甚至将自己的命也给了我们:就是为我们的罪,死在十字架上,并为我们的生命,死后三天复活!阿们,哈利路亚!如今我们不仅要靠感谢他夸胜,更要时时求告他,因他答应过我们: ‘我必搭救你.你也要荣耀我’阿们! 哈利路亚!

不管一個人信不信神,但人心靈深處或多或少總會思索有關神的事.

不論您知不知道有神,這世上的確有真神和假神.

這裡有一段對假神的描述:

那您或許會問: 那真神呢?如何區別真神和假神呢?其實真神和假神是很容易區分的:真神只給不要,真神賜給我們生命,賜給我們空氣,賜給我們陽光,賜給我們水…..他不會向我們要油香錢,不會向我們要牛羊,….. 真神只給不要,一切都是他造的, 都是他的,他若需要甚麼,他也不須要和我們說,若他真要向我們要一樣東西的話,那或許就是我們對真神的感謝了:

詩篇 50:7-15我的民哪、你們當聽我的話.以色列阿、我要勸戒你.我是 神、是你的 神。我並不因你的祭物責備你.你的燔祭常在我面前。我不從你家中取公牛、也不從你圈內取山羊。因為樹林中的百獸是我的、千山上的牲畜也是我的。山中的飛鳥、我都知道.野地的走獸、也都屬我。我若是飢餓、我不用告訴你.因為世界、和其中所充滿的、都是我的。 我豈吃公牛的肉呢.我豈喝山羊的血呢。你們要以感謝為祭獻與 神.又要向至高者還你的願.並要在患難之日求告我、我必搭救你.你也要榮耀我。

愛的弟兄姊妹們,在我們還不認識主耶穌時,我們不懂得感謝,更不會求告他.如今我們認識了主耶穌基督,唯一的真神,我們理應感謝他為我們所作的一切,他不僅將所造的萬物賜給我們,甚至將自己的命也給了我們:就是為我們的罪,死在十字架上,並為我們的生命,死後三天復活!阿們,哈利路亞!如今我們不僅要靠感謝他誇勝,更要時時求告他,因他答應過我們: 『我必搭救你.你也要榮耀我』阿們! 哈利路亞!

Romans 3:25-26 Whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through faith in his blood as an evidence of his righteousness for the passover of sin-offerings that was done previously in the suffering of God, for the purpose of [revealing] the evidence of his righteousness in this time, to declare he himself is just and whoever [born] from the faith of Jesus is justified.

 

(original text in Greek) Rom 3:25 o}n proevqeto oJ qeoV" iJlasthvrion diaV (th'") pivstew" ejn tw'/ aujtou' ai{mati eij" e[ndeixin th'" dikaiosuvnh" aujtou' diaV thVn pavresin tw'n progegonovtwn aJmarthmavtwn 26 ejn th'/ ajnoch'/ tou' qeou', proV" thVn e[ndeixin th'" dikaiosuvnh" aujtou' ejn tw'/ nu'n kairw'/, eij" toV ei\nai aujtoVn divkaion kaiV dikaiou'nta toVn ejk pivstew" jIhsou'.

When Adam and Eve sinned against God in Eden, they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. (Gen 3:21) Who sacrificed his own life and gave his own skin to cover Adam and Eve from God's wrath?

In the day of flood, GOD1 saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every imagination2 of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually. (Gen 6:5), who became the pitch (Heb.: cover, atonement, pacify, purge T*r+p^k*w+ see also Gen 32:20, Exo 29:33, Lev 1:4, Dan 9:24) that prevented flood (God's wrath) entering the ark (Gen 6:14) and saved Noah and his whole family?

In the day of famine, who suffered the sins of Joseph's brothers, sold Joseph (sold himself) and came down to Egypt to fulfill God's good will to save the whole family of Jacob?

In the night of Egypt, who became the lamb of passover, and his blood was shed to mark the door posts of his children as a propritiation to appease God's wrath such that the house of Israel might be passed over from God's judgement (destroyer) and be saved? (Exo 12:13)

On the cross, who bare with our transgression and sins against God, before he died on the cross and he still prayed for us to pacify God's anger saying “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do” (Luk 23:34)?

It's Him, Jesus, who come to cover us and became our propritiation: Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same (Heb 2:14); thus He Himself uses His flesh and blood to shield us from the consumption of God's judgement which is a flaming sword which turned every way (Gen 3:24), that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil (Heb 2:14), and return us to the way of the tree of life (Gen 3:24). And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. (Heb 2:15)

My dear brethren and sisters, there is no sin that Jesus cannot bear, neither there is tribulation that Jesus cannot overcome, His love never forsakes us from even before the beginning of the world (Eph 1:4)! Dear brethren and sisters, since we are born from the faith in His blood, and we have Jesus as our merciful and faithful high priest in front of God, to make reconciliation for our sins (Heb 2:17), we shall be strong and courageous to anchor our hope of salvation through the forerunner Jesus Christ who entered into the veil for us (Heb 6:19-20). Such that His merciful grace of salvation and His everlasting power of resurrection can cover us forever, Hallelujah, Amen!

罗马书3:35-26‘ 神设立耶稣作挽回祭、是藉着在耶稣血里的信实、要显明 神的义.因为 神自己担当、逾越〔或作宽容〕就是那在先时就已成就的赎罪祭.好在今时显明他的义、使人知道他自己为义、也称由耶稣的信实而生的人为义。’
 
当亚当夏娃在伊甸园犯了罪,天起了凉风,耶和华 神为亚当和他妻子用皮子作衣服、给他们穿。(创3:21) 是谁舍了自己的命用自己的皮遮盖了亚当夏娃,好平息神的怒气呢?
 
在洪水的日子,耶和华见人在地上罪恶很大、终日所思想的尽都是恶.(创6:5)是谁亲自成了那不让洪水(神的愤怒)透入方舟的松香(原文作遮盖)(创6:14)好救挪亚一家的性命呢?
 
在饥荒的日子,是谁亲自担当了约瑟哥哥们的罪,卖了约瑟(卖了自己)下到埃及好成就神的美意(创50:20),拯救了雅各全家?
 
在出埃及的那一夜,是谁亲自成了逾越节的羔羊,将自己的血涂抹在以色列儿女的门框上成为挽回祭,好平息神的怒气,使灭命的使者越过以色列家?
 
在十字架上,是谁亲自担当了我们的罪恶过犯,且死在十字架上,在断气前还不住地在父神面前平息神的怒气好挽回我们,替我们祈求说:‘父阿、赦免他们.因为他们所作的、他们不晓得。’?
 
是耶稣!是耶稣亲自成了我们的遮盖,成了我们的挽回祭:因为儿女既同有血肉之体、耶稣也照样亲自成了血肉之体.(来2:14)用自己的血肉之体来遮盖我们,好抵挡那四面转动发火焰的剑(创3:24),特要藉着死、败坏那掌死权的就是魔鬼(来2:14),要把我们带回到生命树的道路(创3:24)。并要释放那些一生因怕死而为奴仆的人。(来2:15)
 
亲爱的弟兄姊妹们,没有一样罪恶耶稣不能担当,也没有一样苦难耶稣未曾胜过,他的爱总是这样地不离不弃,从亘古的先时就有,一直到如今!亲爱的弟兄姊妹们,我们既是耶稣血里的信实所生的儿女,并有耶稣这位慈悲忠信的大祭司、为我们的罪献上了挽回祭(来2:17),就当刚强壮胆,将我们的指望如同灵魂的锚,藉着那作先锋又从死里复活的耶稣、为我们进入幔内、又坚固又牢靠地通入幔内(来6:19-20)好让他救赎的恩典和复活的大能永远的遮盖我们,哈利路亚,阿们!

羅馬書3:35-26 神設立耶穌作挽回祭是藉著在耶穌血裡的信實1要顯明 神的義因為 神自己擔當逾越*〔或作寬容就是那在先時就已成就2好在今時顯明他的義使人知道他自己為義也稱由耶穌的信實而生的人為義3

 

亞當夏娃在伊甸園犯了罪,天起了涼風,耶和華 神為亞當和他妻子用皮子作衣服給他們穿(3:21)是誰捨了自己的命用自己的皮遮蓋了亞當夏娃,好平息神的怒氣呢?

 

洪水的日子,耶和華見人在地上罪惡很大終日所思想的盡都是惡(6:5)是誰親自成了那不讓洪水(神的憤怒)透入方舟的松香(原文作遮蓋)(6:14)好救挪亞一家的性命呢?

 

飢荒的日子,是誰親自擔當了約瑟哥哥們的罪,賣了約瑟(賣了自己)下到埃及好成就神的美意(50:20),拯救了雅各全家?

 

在出埃及的那一夜,是誰親自成了逾越節的羔羊,將自己的血塗抹在以色列兒女的門框上成為挽回祭,平息神的怒氣,使滅命的使者越過以色列家?

 

十字架,是誰親自擔當了我們的罪惡過犯,且死在十字架上,在斷氣前還不住地在父神面前平息神的怒氣好挽回我們,替我們祈求說:父阿赦免他們因為他們所作的他們不曉得?

 

是耶穌!是耶穌親自成了我們的遮蓋,成了我們的挽回祭:因為兒女既同有血肉之體耶穌也照樣親自成了血肉之體(2:14)用自己的血肉之體來遮蓋我們,好抵擋那四面轉動發火燄的劍(3:24),特要藉著死敗壞那掌死權的就是魔鬼(2:14),要把我們帶回到生命樹的道路(3:24)並要釋放那些一生因怕死而為奴僕的人(2:15)

 

親愛的弟兄姊妹們,沒有一樣罪惡耶穌不能擔當,也沒有一樣苦難耶穌未曾勝過,他的愛總是這樣地不離不棄,從亙古的先時就有,一直到如今!親愛的弟兄姊妹們,我們既是耶穌血裡的信實所生的兒女,並有耶穌這位慈悲忠信的大祭司我們的罪獻上挽回祭(2:17),就當剛強壯膽,將我們的指望如同靈魂的錨,藉著那作先鋒又從死裡復活的耶穌為我們進入幔內又堅固又牢靠通入幔內(6:19-20)好讓他救贖的恩典和復活的大能永遠的遮蓋我們,哈利路亞,阿們!

Zechariah 13:8-9: And it shall come to pass, [that] in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off [and] die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It [is] my people: and they shall say, The LORD [is] my God.

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters, we may see verses in the Bible that mentioned “the third part” (or one third). From the above verses, it may not difficult to see that God use “the third” to symbolize the portion He planned to save in His salvation plan. Let's examine few other verses to validate our understanding:

 

2Kings 1:9-15: Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. …. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty. Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. …. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty. And he sent again a captain of the third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and besought him, and said unto him, O man of God, I pray thee, let my life, and the life of these fifty thy servants, be precious in thy sight. Behold, there came fire down from heaven, and burnt up the two captains of the former fifties with their fifties: therefore let my life now be precious in thy sight. And the angel of the LORD said unto Elijah, Go down with him: be not afraid of him. And he arose, and went down with him unto the king.

 

There were 153 soldiers went up to see Elijah, only “the third part” 51 soldiers were not consumed by fire (were not judged): “one third” are saved!

 

Mathew 7:13-14: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate, and broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

 

Amen, “for wide [is] the gate, and broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat” (two third), “ narrow [is] the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (one third). Bible declared that “many” go in to destruction, only “few” find life. The “one third” and “two third” plan declared in Zechariah 13:8-9 is consistent with this Mat 7:13-14 “few” versus “many” preaching.

 

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, with His wisdom, now we may understand why the “number of the beast” is “666”. (If 1,000 symbolized the whole part in all the land, what would be the number of two third then?)

 

This is why even when our Lord Jesus Christ preached the Kingdom of Heaven in parables in front of multitudes (representing the whole part of all the land) and when his disciples came and asked why, this is what Jesus said: “Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.” (Mathew 13:11)

 

John 17:5-12: And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received [them,] and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we [are.] While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

撒迦利亚书13:8~9 耶和华说、这全地的人、三分之二、必剪除而死、三分之一仍必存留。 我要使这三分之一经火、熬炼他们、如熬炼银子、试炼他们、如试炼金子.他们必求告我的名、我必应允他们.我要说、这是我的子民.他们也要说、耶和华是我们的 神。
 
亲爱的弟兄姊妹们,圣经里常提到‘三分之一’由以上的经文,我们不难看出神用三分之一来预表得救人数的比例.让我们再看几处经文来检验我们所理解的是否正确:
 
列王纪下1:9~15于是王差遣五十夫长、带领五十人去见以利亚、…于是有火从天上降下来、烧灭五十夫长、和他那五十人。王第二次差遣一个五十夫长、带领五十人去见以利亚。…于是 神的火从天上降下来、烧灭五十夫长、和他那五十人。…王第三次差遣一个五十夫长、带领五十人去。这五十夫长上去双膝跪在以利亚面前、哀求他、说、神人哪、愿我的性命、和你这五十个仆人的性命、在你眼前看为宝贵。已经有火从天上降下来、烧灭前两次来的五十夫长、和他们各自带的五十人.现在愿我的性命在你眼前看为宝贵。耶和华的使者对以利亚说、你同着他下去、不要怕他.以利亚就起来、同着他下去见王。
 
前后有一百五十三人去见以利亚,没被火烧死的(没受审判的)只有最后上去的五十一人(五十夫长一人和他那五十人共五十一人): 三分之一得救了.
 
马太福音7:13~14 你们要进窄门.因为引到灭亡、那门是宽的、路是大的、进去的人也多。 引到永生、那门是窄的、路是小的1、找着的人也少。
 
是阿,引到灭亡、那门是宽的、路是大的、进去的人也多(三分之二的人多),引到永生、那门是窄的、路是小的、找着的人也少(三分之一的人少)!
 
所以我亲爱的有智慧有聪明的弟兄姊妹们,现在我们当知道启示录13:18节中那‘兽的数目’为什么‘是六百六十六’了吧? (若一千预表全地的人,那么一千的三分之二是多少呢?)
 
因此耶稣基督来到世上传道也不能违背神的旨意(撒迦利亚书13:8~9),所以他说:因为天国的奥秘、只叫你们知道、不叫他们知道。(马太福音13:11)
 
约翰福音17:5-12: 父阿、现在求你使我同你享荣耀、就是未有世界以先、我同你所有的荣耀。 你从世上赐给我的人、我已将你的名显明与他们.他们本是你的、你将他们赐给我、他们也遵守了你的道。 如今他们知道、凡你所赐给我的、都是从你那里来的. 因为你所赐给我的道、我已经赐给他们.他们也领受了、又确实知道、我是从你出来的、并且信你差了我来。 我为他们祈求.不为世人祈求、却为你所赐给我的人祈求、因他们本是你的。凡是我的都是你的、你的也是我的.并且我因他们得了荣耀。 从今以后、我不在世上、他们却在世上、我往你那里去。圣父阿、求你因你所赐给我的名保守他们、叫他们合而为一像我们一样。 我与他们同在的时候、因你所赐给我的名、保守了他们、我也护卫了他们、其中除了那灭亡之子、没有一个灭亡的.好叫经上的话得应验。

撒迦利亞書13:8~9 耶和華說這全地的人三分之二必剪除而死三分之一仍必存留。 我要使這三分之一經火熬煉他們如熬煉銀子試煉他們如試煉金子他們必求告我的名我必應允他們我要說這是我的子民他們也要說耶和華是我的 神

 

愛的弟兄姊妹們,聖經裡常提到『三分之一』由以上的經文,我們不難看出神用三分之一來預表得救人數的比例.讓我們再看幾處經文來檢驗我們所理解的是否正確:

 

列王紀下1:9~15於是王差遣五十夫長帶領五十人去見以利亞於是有火從天上降下來、燒滅五十夫長、和他那五十人。王第二次差遣一個五十夫長帶領五十人去見以利亞於是 神的火從天上降下來、燒滅五十夫長、和他那五十人。王第三次差遣一個五十夫長帶領五十人去這五十夫長上去雙膝跪在以利亞面前哀求他神人哪願我的性命和你這五十個僕人的性命在你眼前看為寶貴已經有火從天上降下來燒滅前兩次來的五十夫長和他們各自帶的五十人現在願我的性命在你眼前看為寶貴耶和華的使者對以利亞說你同著他下去不要怕他以利亞就起來同著他下去見王

 

前後有一百五十三人去見以利亞,沒被火燒死的(沒受審判的)只有最後上去的五十一人(五十夫長一人和他那五十人共五十一人): 三分之一得救了.

 

馬太福音7:13~14 你們要進窄門因為引到滅亡那門是寬的路是大的進去的人也多。 引到永生那門是窄的路是小的1找著的人也少

 

,引到滅亡那門是寬的路是大的進去的人也多(三分之二的人多),引到永生那門是窄的路是小的找著的人也少(三分之一的人少)!

 

以我親愛的有智慧有聰明的弟兄姊妹們,現在我們當知道啟示錄13:18節中那『獸的數目』為什麼『是六百六十六』了吧? (若一千預表全地的人,那麼一千的三分之二是多少呢?)

 

因此耶穌基督來到世上傳道也不能違背神的旨意(撒迦利亞書13:8~9),所以他說:因為天國的奧祕只叫你們知道不叫他們知道(馬太福音13:11)

 

約翰福音17:5-12: 父阿現在求你使我同你享榮耀就是未有世界以先我同你所有的榮耀 你從世上賜給我的人我已將你的名顯明與他們他們本是你的你將他們賜給我他們也遵守了你的道 如今他們知道凡你所賜給我的都是從你那裡來的 因為你所賜給我的道我已經賜給他們他們也領受了又確實知道我是從你出來的並且信你差了我來 我為他們祈求不為世人祈求卻為你所賜給我的人祈求因他們本是你的凡是我的都是你的你的也是我的並且我因他們得了榮耀 從今以後我不在世上他們卻在世上我往你那裡去聖父阿求你因你所賜給我的名保守他們叫他們合而為一像我們一樣 我與他們同在的時候因你所賜給我的名保守了他們我也護衛了他們其中除了那滅亡之子沒有一個滅亡的好叫經上的話得應驗

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

 

Since Seth (Gen 4:26), God's children call upon His name in distress: For example, A [Psalm] of David, the servant of the LORD, who spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day [that] the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said, … In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, [even] into his ears. (Psm 18:6) And the LORD answered and saved him from death.

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Do we know? When we believed in Jesus Christ, He entered into us. Whenever we call upon His name and cry out for help, He comes to us, saves us and heals us.

 

After experiencing the LORD's almighty power, Moses witnessed: For what nation [is there so] great, who [hath] God [so] nigh* unto them, as the LORD our God [is] in all [things that] we call upon him [for?] (Deu 4:7) (*nigh: near, at hand, kin, kinsmen)

 

We could call upon His name at any time any place in any situation, He will be our “very present help in trouble” (Psm 46:1). In the Bible, the shortest crying out the LORD for help was documented in the 1 Kings 22:32: when Jehoshaphat was pursuied by Syria captains of the chariots, “Jehoshaphat cried out.” the LORD immediately caused the captains of the chariots “perceived that it was not the king of Israel, that they turned back from pursuing him.” No ritual, no formality, all we need is to ask Him boldly (Luk 11:8), and He will answer.

 

Perhaps you might ask: why have we to cry out with voice? Could we pray silently in our heart? There is the truth in reality we need to understand:

 

10:6 But the righteousness which is [born] from faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down [from above:])

10:7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)

10:8 But what saith it? The word is near thee, [even] in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

 

In Romans 10:8, “The word” is the Spirit and Life (Jhn 6:63), and it is Jesus Christ himself (Jhn 1:14), “The word is near you”,”Say not in your heart, Who shall ascend into heaven” to bring the word that is Christ down to us? (10:6) “Or, Who shall descent into the deep” to bring up the word that is Christ to us? (10:7) Where is the word? Where is Jesus? How can I contact Him in my distress? The Bible says: “The word is near you, [He is] in your mouth, and [He is] in your heart”! (10:8) Therefore the Bible insists that we not only need to “believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead” but also “confess with your mouth that Jesus is the Lord”, that confessing with your mouth is calling upon His name. Therefore in Romans 10:13 said “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” When we call upon Him, He comes to us immediately and is rich unto all that call upon him. (Rom 10:12)

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters, would you like to experience Him in reality? Let's call upon His name, cry out for His help. Because He loves us unto the end. (Jhn 13:1) He died for us on the cross and raised on the third day. And He said unto us: “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.” (Jhn 14:18-20)

Rom 10:13因為『凡求告主名的、就必得救。』
 
從塞特起(Gen 4:26)歷代 神的兒女在急難中都會呼求主的名: 例如當耶和華救大衛脫離一切仇敵和掃羅之手的日子、他向耶和華念這詩的話.說、….我在急難中求告耶和華、向我的 神呼求.他從殿中聽了我的聲音、我在他面前的呼求入了他的耳中。(Psm 18:6) 耶和華便應允, 救他脫離死亡.
 
親愛的弟兄姐妹們,您知道嗎?當我們信了耶穌是基督,他就住進了我們裡面.每當我們呼求他名的時候他便與我們親近,拯救我們,醫治我們.
 
摩西在經歷了耶和華的大能之後做了見證說: 那一大國的人有神與他們親近、像耶和華我們的 神、在我們求告他的時候與我們親近呢。(Deu 4:7)
 
我們在任何情況任何地方都可呼叫主的名, 他都會作我們隨時的幫助. 在聖經中所記載最短的呼喊是在列王紀上22:32:當約沙法被亞蘭軍兵追殺時,『約沙法便呼喊』,神就使亞蘭車兵長『轉去不追他了』沒有儀文,沒有形式,只要情詞迫切的直求(Luk 11:8),主必答應.
 
或許你會問:為什麼要出聲求告呢?能不能在心裡禱告祈求呢?這裡有一個真理的實際我們要明白:
 
Rom 10:6惟有由信實而生的義如此說、『你不要心裡說、誰要升到天上去呢.就是要領下基督來.
Rom 10:7誰要下到陰間去呢.就是要領基督從死裡上來。』
Rom 10:8他到底怎麼說呢.他說、『這道離你不遠、正在你口裡、在你心裡。』就是我們所傳基督的信實之道。
Rom 10:9你若口裡認耶穌為主、心裡信 神叫他從死裡復活、就必得救.
 
在羅馬書10:8中所說的『這道』乃是信實生命之道,就是耶穌基督他自己,『這道離你不遠』,『你不要心裡說、誰要升到天上去』取這道呢? 也不要心裡說『誰要下到陰間去』取這道呢? 那麼這道到底在哪裡呢? 聖經說:『這道離你不遠、正在你口裡、在你心裡。』『這道』就是耶穌基督他自己,他正在你口裡! 他正在你心裡! 因此這裡強調我們不僅要『心裡信 神叫他從死裡復活』更要『口裡認耶穌為主』,這口裡承認,就是求告主名,所以在羅馬書10:13才說: 因為『凡求告主名的、就必得救。』我們一求告,他就住在我們裡頭,並要『厚待』我們 (Rom 10:12).
 
親愛的弟兄姐妹們,您願意親自經歷他真實的同在嗎?讓我們一同來求告主名,呼求他的名,因為那位愛我們到底,為我們捨命三天後復活的主耶穌基督說: 我不撇下你們為孤兒、我必到你們這裡來。還有不多的時候、世人不再看見我.你們卻看見我.因為我活著、你們也要活著。 到那日你們就知道我在父裡面、你們在我裡面、我也在你們裡面。 (Jhn 14:18-20)
