11.09.20 這是歌唱的時刻 It is Singing Time

使徒行傳 16:25 約在半夜,保羅和西拉正在禱告,唱詩讚美 神,眾囚犯也側耳聽着的時候, 26 忽然,地大震動,甚至監牢的地基都搖動了,監門立刻全開,眾囚犯的鎖鏈也都解開了。

Acts 16:25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them, 26 and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken. And immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s bonds were unfastened. 

保羅和西拉回應著名的“馬其頓的呼聲”在腓立比傳福音,但最終確遭到毆打併入獄。 當他們坐在牢房時,他們有充分的理由灰心和向上帝抱怨,但相反,他們選擇在午夜祈禱並向上帝唱讚美詩。 這肯定是那個監獄中聽到過的最意外和最美麗的聲音。 祈禱和唱歌的結果動搖了監獄的根基,打開了所有監獄的門。 當前我們正面對一個黑暗的時期-我們國家的午夜時刻,知道迫害將要發生,或許已經發生了,但現在不是讓我們灰心的時候,而是禱告,唱詩讚美 神的時候! 不僅全世界會聽到,而且最重要的是上帝會聽到,並且祂會動搖黑暗的根基!

Paul and Silas followed the famous “Macedonian Call” to preach the gospel in Philipi, but they ended up being beaten and put into jail.  They had all the reason to be discouraged and to complain to God as they sat in their jail cell, but instead they chose to pray and to sing hymns to God at midnight. This must have been the most unexpected and most beautiful sound ever heard in that jail. The result of that prayer and singing shook the foundations of the prison and opened all the prisons doors. As we face a time of darkness, the midnight of our country, knowing persecution is on the way and is already happening, it is not the time for us to lose heart but to pray and sing songs of praise to God! Not only will the world hear and listen, but most importantly God will hear and listen, and He will shake the foundations of darkness!
