第二章 一样宝贵的信心

读经:彼得后书(1:1-8

【翻译】必胜的信心(第2章) - heheaiyesu_和爱稣 - heheaiyesu(和爱稣)的博客

 我们对于属灵事物的理解总是很迟钝,因为我们常常让自己对这个世界的关怀蒙蔽了我们的眼睛;但是如果我们向神敞开,我们就将远超以往地看见,神为我们预备了一个关于未来的伟大的计划。当我们让神完全做主的时候,神很乐意让那些对我们看似不可能的事成为可能,然后所有的那些蒙蔽我们的,误导我们的事情都会被一扫而光。

彼得以上写到的,“一样宝贵的信心”(彼得后书1:1),是一件神乐意赐给我们的礼物。我相信神想让我们领受这样的信心,是为了拓展天国的疆土,做公义的工作,并且,如果时候到了,去堵住狮子的口。我们应该在所有的情况下都能取得胜利,因为我们的信念不取决于我们自己,而是取决于神。总是那些充满信心的人才会报告好消息,才从不抱怨,他们站在胜利之地,不在人的法则之下,而在神的神圣法则之下,因为神已经来与他们同住。

这一样宝贵的信心是为所有人预备的,但在获得这样的信心前,神将不得不对付你生命中的阻碍。对我来说,这种对付就好像有一千台机车碾过我的生命,我如同窑匠的瓦器一样被破碎。除了忧伤的灵以外,没有什么别的途径让我们进入神深奥的事,进入神的大能之中。当神将我们破碎到这样的一个境地,以致于我们能像保罗一样说:“活着的不再是我,基督已经掌管了我的一切。”在这样的时候,神就会行事,并且充充足足的成就,超过我们所求所想。

我认识神是通过祂的话语,而不是通过自己的感觉和印象,也不是通过自己的情绪。如果我打算认识神,我就要通过祂的话语来认识祂。我知道自己终将置身天堂,但这个信念并不建立在我要去天堂的感觉上。我要去天堂是因为神的话这样说,而我相信祂的话。可见信道是从听道来的,听道是从基督的话来的。(罗马书10:17

在《马可福音》1124节我们会读到:“所以我告诉你们,凡你们祷告祈求的,无论是什么,只要信是得著的,就必得著。”前面的经文还提到大山被挪开,困难被清除。那些门面的工作可不会造成这样的结果。我们必须有实际的工作,真正属神的工作。我们必须认识神,必须能进入并保持与神的关系,我们还必须知道神对我们的心意,好让我们的祈求总是符合他的愿望。

当这一样宝贵的信心成为你的一部分的时候,你会敢做任何事情。记住,神想要的是勇敢的人,这样的人要敢于为神做一切事情,这样的人会靠着神刚强,并敢于为神建功立业。怎样才能成为这样的人呢?——清除你自己所有的想法,并且紧紧抓住神的想法,就是神的话。如果你将自己的工作建立在想象的基础上,你就会走错路。但有了神的话,你就一切足够了。关于神的话,有人曾经给出这样令人深刻的见证:“永远不要将圣经与其它书相比较,这样的比较是危险的。也永远不要想或者说圣经包含神的话,——圣经就是神的话。圣经是超自然的源头,祂永远不会改变,有着无法表达的价值,覆盖无限的范围,有着不断更新的能力,拥有无上的权威,并且惠及全宇宙,是个人行为的准则,也是全部的启示。因此,要阅读祂,写下祂,在祂里面祷告,行出神的话,然后将祂传递出去。”

确实地,神的话会改变一个人直到他成为神的书信。神的话会改变他的心思意念,改变他的性格,让他从一个恩典走向另一个恩典,并让他成为神的天性的继承者。对于那些领受了启示的圣灵,并向神的话全然敞开的人,神会进到他里面,住进他里面,与他同行,并与他一起享用属灵的盛宴。

当我去新西兰和澳大利亚的时候,有很多人为我送行。在去往港口码头的车上,一名印度医生与我同行。他是个很安静的人,他静静地吸收着我们在船上说的事。我在船上开始传道,当然,主开始在人群中工作。在二等舱里有一位年轻的男人和他的妻子,他们都是仆人,为一对儿住在一等舱的绅士和女士服务。这两个年轻人听到了我与别人的谈话,留下了非常深刻的印象。不久,他们俩服侍的那位女士得了很重的病。在重病和重病带来的寂寞中,她找不到任何安慰。他们叫来了医生,医生也没带给她任何希望。

然后,就在这陌生的困境中——她是一个有名的基督教科学派的信奉者(译者注:这是是个异端教派,也被称为山达基教和科学教),也是一个基督教科学派的传道人,她在没得病的时候,曾经在船里跑上跑下地传道——她的仆人们想到了我。我了解了她的情况,知道了以什么为生,也知道了她在这样的情况下她的意识只能听到几个最简单的词儿,所以我对她说:“既然你病得很重,我不会和你说太多,我将奉耶稣的名为你祷告,我祷告的时候你就会痊愈。”

就在我祈祷的那一刻,她就被治好了。这就是那一样宝贵的信心在工作。但接着她却感到很烦恼。因为我本来应该很快给她倒一些安慰的膏油的,但我却给了她许多的苦药,在以后的那三天里,我让她就像生活在灰烬中一样。我向她显示了她所处的可怕状况,指出她所信奉的愚蠢和谬误。我向她指出,基督教科学派其实什么也不是,从开始就是个彻头彻尾的谎言,是地狱的分支机构之一。充其量就是个谎言,基督教科学派就是在传讲谎言,制造谎言。

终于,她的灵魂终于被唤醒了,变得既非常懊悔又非常伤心。这激动她要做的第一件事,就是去在船上她曾经传讲基督教科学派的地方传讲基督的简单福音。她问我是否不得不放弃某些事情,我在这里不会提到那些事情,它们真是太邪恶了。我说:“你要做的就是仰望耶稣,接受耶稣。”当她真的看到了主的纯洁,其它的事情就不得不退去了。耶稣显现的时候,其它所有的就退去了。

福音的大门被这件事打开了,我不得不给船上的每一个人传讲福音,这给我很大的机会。当我传道的时候,神的大能就会降临,对神的确信就会临到,罪人就会得救。他们一个接一个跟我进入我的船舱。——是的,神正在工作。

然后那位印度医生来了。他说:“我应该做什么呢?我不能再给人开药了。”“为什么?”“哦,你的传道已经改变了我。但是我必须拥有一个信仰的根基。你愿意花一些时间给我讲一讲吗?”“当然愿意。”然后我们俩单独相处了一段时间,神给这片荒地播下了种子。这位印度医生将带着新的信仰回到印度,在那里他有一个诊所,他告诉我他有一家很大的诊所,他要回到诊所向人们传讲耶稣。

如果你失去了对神的渴慕,如果你不再哭求更多的神,你就会错过神对你的计划。我们必须有那种从内心深处涌上来的呼求,这呼求除了神以外,没有任何别的东西能够满足。神想要给我们关于摆在我们前面奖赏的图景,我们以前获得的奖赏都不能与之相比。如果你已经停在了某处不再前进,就在你失败的地方重新开始吧。这一次你要行走在纯净的光明和天堂的大能之中,这样你会与神相遇。当神让你知道自己是多么软弱,当祂将你带向灵的破碎的时候,你的信心就会让你紧紧抓住神和祂神圣的供应。祂的光,祂的怜悯也会向你显明,最后,他会为你降下春雨秋雨。

我们不应当将自己再度献给神吗?有人说:“我昨晚上将自己献给了神。”

每一次新的启示都会带来新的献身。就让我们寻求神吧!

CHAPTER 2 LIKE PRECIOUS FAITH

Read 2 Peter 1:1-8.

We are dull of comprehension because we so often let the cares of this world blind our eyes; but if we can be open to God, we shall see that He has a greater plan for us in the future than we have ever seen in the past. It is God’s delight to make possible to us that which seems impossible, and when we reach a place where He alone has right of way, then all the things that have been misty and misunderstood are cleared up.

This like precious faith that Peter is writing about is a gift that God is willing to give to all of us, and I believe God wants us to receive it so that we may subdue kingdoms, work righteousness, and, if the time is come, to stop the mouths of lions. We should be able under all circumstances to triumph, because we have no confidence in ourselves, but our confidence is only in God. It is always those people who are full of faith that have a good report, that never murmur, that are in the place of victory, that are not in the place of human order but of divine order, since God has come to dwell in them.

This like precious faith is for all; but there may be some hindrance in your life that God will have to deal with. It seems to me as if I had had a thousand road engines come over my life to break me up like a potter’s vessel. There is no other way into the deep things of God but a broken spirit. There is no other way into the power of God. God will do the exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think for us when He can bring us to the place where we can say with Paul, “I live no longer, and Another, even Christ, has taken the reins and the rule.”

I understand God by His Word. I cannot understand God by impressions or feelings; I cannot get to know God by sentiments. If I am going to know God, I am going to know Him by His Word. I know I shall be in heaven, but I could not build on my feelings that I am going to heaven. I am going to heaven because God’s Word says it, and I believe God’s Word. And “faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” Rom. 10;17.

In Mark 11:24 we read, “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” The previous verse speaks of mountains removed, difficulties cleared away. Veneering won’t do. We must have reality, the real working of our God. We must know God. We must be able to go in and hold converse with God. We must also know the mind of God toward us, so that all our petitions are always on the line of His will.

As this like precious faith becomes a part of you, it will make you so that you will dare to do anything. And remember, God wants daring men, men who will dare all, men who will be strong in Him and dare to do exploits. How shall we reach this plane of faith? Let go your own thoughts, and take the thoughts of God, the Word of God. If you build yourself on imaginations you will go wrong. You have the Word of God and it is enough. A man gave this remarkable testimony concerning the Word: “Never compare this Book with other books. Comparisons are dangerous. Never think or never say that this Book contains the Word of God. It is the Word of God. It is supernatural in origin, eternal in duration, inexpressible in value, infinite in scope, regenerative in power, infallible in authority, universal in interest, personal in application, inspired in totality. Read it through. Write it down. Pray it in. Work it out. And then pass it on.”

And truly the Word of God changes a man until he becomes an epistle of God. It transforms his mind, changes his character, moves him on from grace to grace, makes him an inheritor of the very nature of God. God comes in, dwells in, walks in, talks through, and sups with him who opens his being to the Word of God and receives the Spirit who inspired it.

When I was going over to New Zealand and Australia, I had many to see me off. There was an Indian doctor who was riding in the same car with me to the docks. He was very quiet and took in all things that were said on the ship. I began to preach, of course, and the Lord began to work among the people. In the second-class part of the ship there was a young man and his wife who were attendants on a lady and gentleman in the first-class. And as these two young people heard me talking to them privately and otherwise, they were very much impressed. Then the lady they were attending got very sick. In her sickness and her loneliness she could find no relief. They called in the doctor, and the doctor gave her no hope.

And then, when in this strange dilemma—she was a great Christian Scientist, a preacher of it, and had gone up and down preaching it—they thought of me. Knowing the conditions, and what she lived for, that it was late in the day, and that in the condition of her mind she could only receive the simplest words, I said to her, “Now you are very sick, and I won’t talk to you about anything save this; I will pray for you in the name of Jesus, and the moment I pray you will be healed.”

And the moment I prayed she was healed. That was this like precious faith in operation. Then she was disturbed. Now I could have poured in oil very soon. But I poured in all the bitter drugs possible, and for three days I had her on cinders. I showed her her terrible state, and pointed out to her all her folly and the fallacy of her position. I showed her that there was nothing in Christian Science, that it is a lie from the beginning, one of the last agencies of hell. At best a lie, preaching a lie, and producing a lie.

Then she wakened up. She became so penitent and broken-hearted. But the thing that stirred her first was that she had to go to preach the simple gospel of Christ where she had preached Christian Science. She asked me if she had to give up certain things. I won’t mention the things, they are too vile. I said, “What you have to do is to see Jesus and take Jesus.” When she saw the Lord in His purity, the other things had to go. At the presence of Jesus all else goes.

This opened the door. I had to preach to all on the boat. This gave me a great opportunity. As I preached, the power of God fell, conviction came and sinners were saved. They followed me into my cabin one after another. God was working there.

Then this Indian doctor came. He said, “What shall I do? I cannot use medicine any more.” “Why?” “Oh, your preaching has changed me. But I must have a foundation. Will you spend some time with me?” “Of course I will.” Then we went alone and God broke the fallow ground. This Indian doctor was going right back to his Indian conditions under a new order. he had left a practice there. He told me of the great practice he had. He was going back to his practice to preach Jesus.

If you have lost your hunger for God, if you do not have a cry for more of God, you are missing the plan. There must come up from us a cry that cannot be satisfied with anything but God. He wants to give us the vision of the prize ahead that is something higher than we have ever attained. If you ever stop at any point, pick up at the place where you have dropped through, and begin again under the refining light and power of heaven and God will meet you. And while He will bring you to a consciousness of your own frailty and to a brokenness of spirit, your faith will lay hold of Him and all the divine resources, His light and compassion will be manifested through you, and He will send the rain.

Shall we not dedicate ourselves afresh to God? Some say, “I dedicated myself last night to God.”

Every new revelation brings a new dedication. Let us seek Him.

r my e Ho@ ?? before God, I have never read a book but my Bible, so I know nothing about books. It seems to me better to get the Book of books for food for your soul, for the strengthening of your faith, and the building up of your character in God, so that all the time you are being changed and made meet to walk with God. “

Without faith it is impossible to please Him; for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

I can see that it is impossible to please Him on any line but faith, for everything that is not of faith is sin. God wants us to see that the plan of faith is the ideal and principle of God. In this connection I love to keep in my thoughts the beautiful words in the 2nd verse of the 12th chapter of Hebrews: “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.” He is the author of faith. God worked through Him for the forming of the world. “All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made.” And because of the exceedingly abundant joy of providing for us so great salvation, He became the author of a living faith. And through this principle of living faith, looking unto Him who is the author and finisher of our faith, we are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even by the Spirit of the Lord.

God has something better for you than you have ever had in the past. Come out into all the fulness of faith and power and life and victory that He is willing to provide, as you forget the things of the past, and press right on for the prize of His high calling in Christ Jesus.
