12.07.20 上帝已說話 God Has Spoken

希伯來書 1:1 古時候, 神藉着眾先知多次多方向列祖說話, 末世,藉着他兒子向我們說話,又立他為承受萬有的,也藉着他創造宇宙。

Hebrews 1:1 Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.

基督教的核心在於上帝所說的話語,即祂的啟示。 我們能夠知道的是由於神對我們說話。 所有的創造都都是上帝所說話的結果:“「要有光」,就有了光。” (創1:3) 在舊約時代,上帝通過先知“多次多方”對以色列人說話。 “耶和華說 the Lord said”,“耶和華說the Lord spoke”和“耶和華的臨到 the word of the Lord came”這句話至少出現了3,808次,可是以色列人仍然沒有真正聽從。 但是上帝並沒有放棄。 在末後的日子裡,上帝藉着耶穌向我們說話的,耶穌是道(約翰福音1:1)。 在遠古時代,如果人們忽視國王的命令,他們可能會陷入困境甚至喪生。 因此,“我們必須越發注意所聽見的道,免得我們隨流失去。” (希伯來書2:1)美國已經遠離上帝,因為人們不再聽上帝的話。 因此,讓我們“務要傳道 , 無論得時不得時 ”(提後4:2),因為上帝已說話

The core of Christianity rests on God’s spoken Word, His revelation. What we are able to know is due to the fact that God has spoken to us. All of creation is a result of God’s spoken Word: “And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. ” (Gen. 1:3) During Old Testament times, God spoke to the Israelites through the prophets “at many times and in many ways.” The phrases “the Lord said”, “the Lord spoke”, and “the word of the Lord came” appear at least 3,808 times, yet the Israelites still did not really listen. But God did not give up. In the last days God has spoken to us by Jesus who is The Word (John 1:1). In ancient times, if people ignored the words of the king, they might get into trouble or even lose their lives. So “we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.” (Hebrews 2:1) America has drifted away from God because people have ceased to listen to God’s spoken word. So let us “preach the word; be ready in season and out of season” (2 Tim 4:2) because God has spoken.
