Isaiah 14:24 The Lord of hosts has sworn: “As I have planned, so shall it be, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand, 25 that I will break the Assyrian in my land, and on my mountains trample him underfoot; and his yoke shall depart from them, and his burden from their shoulder.” 26 This is the purpose that is purposed concerning the whole earth, and this is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations. 27 For the Lord of hosts has purposed, and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back?
以賽亞 14:24萬軍之耶和華起誓說：「我怎樣思想，必照樣成就；我怎樣定意，必照樣堅立，25 要在我的地上擊破亞述，在我的山上將它踐踏。它的軛必離開受壓制的人，
Each country has its own laws and has authority only within its own boundaries. Sometimes a country cannot even enforce rules within its own borders. But God rules the whole world; no one can stop His plans and purposes. At the current time it seems like we are living in a world out of control. No one in the history has ever experienced what we are facing now. Yet we need to see that “[t]his is the purpose that is purposed concerning the whole earth, and this is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations.” (v. 26) This is a time of action for both sides! Satan knows his time is short so he will intensify his efforts against God and His people. This is the time we all need to show our “cards”, to show which side are we on. May God help us not only to stand firm on God’s side but also to follow His plans and purposes in our lives! God has stretched out His hand; it is our time to stretch out our hands, too. Harvest Church of NY was established in response to the 9/11 incident in 2001. May more churches and ministries be established and strengthened because of the pandemic of 2020!
每個國家都有自己的法律，並且僅在自己的領土範圍內擁有權力。有時，一些國家甚至無法在自己的國界內執行規則。但是上帝統治整個世界。沒有人可以阻止祂的計劃和目的。目前看來，我們好像生活在一個失控的世界，歷史上沒有人經歷過我們現在所面對的。但是我們需要看到，“這是[上帝]向全地所定的旨意，向萬國所伸出的手。” （第26節）這是雙方”出手”行動的時候，撒但知道自己的時間有限，因此他將加大對上帝和祂的子民的敵對。這也是我們所有人都要”現牌”以表明我們站在哪一邊的時候。願上帝幫助我們不僅站在上帝的立場上，而且在我們的生活中遵循祂的計劃和目地！上帝已經”出手”了， 也該是祂的子民”出手”的時候! 紐約豐收靈糧堂因2001年的9/11事件而成立。盼望更多的教會和事工因2020年的大流行而建立和堅固！
