第十一章 圣灵充满是什么意思呢?

读经:使徒行传第六章

【翻译】不住增长的信心(11)圣灵充满是什么意思呢? - heheaiyesu_和爱稣 - heheaiyesu(和爱稣)的博客

在初代教会门徒倍增的时候,这种情况促使十二使徒决定应当专心以祈祷传道为事,不要被管理饭食这些事情所占满。所有神的仆人们都应当不断地祷告,常常被圣经真理来喂养,这是多么重要的事。我常说,如果谁看见我在任何地方没有带着圣经或新约圣经的,我就奖赏他。

除非你勤奋不断地留心倾听神借着祂的道向人所说的,你就不能在神里刚强起来。除非你有分于祂有生命气息的道,你也不能知道神的能力和性情。你要早晨读圣经,晚上也要读,只要有机会就读。每次吃完饭后,与其围着桌子沉湎在那些无益的闲谈中,不如读一章圣经,做一会儿祷告。我竭力这样做,不管是在哪里,也不问谁和我在一起。

《诗篇》作者说他已将神的话藏在心里免得得罪祂。你会发现神的话藏在你心里越多,你就越容易过一个圣洁的生活。写《诗篇》的人还见证说神的话已经救活了他;当你接受神的话到你里面的时候,你整个的身体也要被救活,并且也要强壮起来。当你存温柔的心接受这道,你会发现信心在里面生长起来,籍着这道你就有了生命。

十二使徒告诉其余的人寻找七个人照顾教会事务,他们得是有好名声,被圣灵充满的人。这些选出的人不过都是平常人,但是他们却被圣灵充满,这种充满总是将人提升到超常的地步。不要找一个有文化有学问的人来占据神教会的职位,神所要的是一个顺服的、委身的圣洁生命,神能借着他们点燃极大的火焰来,以圣灵与火施洗!

弟兄们选出七个人来管理饭食。在他们指定的工作上,他们无疑是忠心的,但是我们看到神不久为其中的两位做了更好的安排:腓力被圣灵如此充满,以至于神把他放在哪里,哪里就有复兴。众人选他管理饭食,神却拣选他赢得灵魂。哦,但愿我能激励你看到这一点,就是当你在最微小的事上有忠心,神能用他的灵充满你,让你做祂拣选的器皿,高升你做那伟大的执事,就是拯救灵魂,医治疾病。圣灵充满的人凡事能作,这是超乎所有人理解的。你被圣灵的能力充满的时候,在你所到之处,神要作那奇妙的工作。

当你被圣灵充满时,你也会知道神的声音。我想给你一个这方面的例子。最近我打算去澳洲,我们的船停泊在亚丁(Aden 和孟买(Bombay)。在亚丁人们来到船的周围卖他们的商品,有漂亮的地毯和各种充满东方风情的东西,还有一个人在卖一些鸵鸟的羽毛。当我在客船的一边俯视着他们做买卖的时候,有一个绅士对我说:“你愿意与我一起合伙买那束羽毛吗?”我要羽毛做什么?没用也没有地方存放。但是那位绅士又问了一次:“你会与我一起合伙买一束吗?” 这时神的灵对我说:“按他说的做。”

这些羽毛卖给我们的价格是三英磅,那位绅士说:“我身上没带钱,但如果你愿意先付钱,我会要叫船上的事务长将现金给你送下来。”我为羽毛付了钱并把那人当得的一份给了他。他在头等舱,我在二等舱,我就对他说:“不,请不要把钱交给事务长,我要你自己带到我的船舱。”我对主说:“这些羽毛该怎么办?”祂指示我,买这些羽毛祂有自己的目的。

十点钟时那位绅士来到我的船舱,说:“我把钱带来了。”我对他说:“我不是想要你的钱,我在为神寻找你的灵魂。”就在这里他展开了一生的计划,开始寻求神;就在那天早晨这人痛哭着接受了神的救恩。

你不会想到被圣灵充满时,神要藉你作什么。每一天,每一个小时你都能拥有来自神的神圣引导,被圣灵充满在每个方面都意味着更多。我曾见过有人多年被病痛所苦,但他们在被圣灵充满以后,所有的疾病都没有了。神的灵使耶稣的生命对他们而言成为真实,这样他们就从各样的疾病和软弱中得了解放。

看看司提反,他不过是被选中管理饭食的普通人,但圣灵在他里面,他就满有信心和能力,在民间行了奇事和神迹。他是以智慧和圣灵说话,众人敌挡不住。每个人都当被圣灵充满,这是多么要紧的事。

方言和翻出来的话:“神的旨意是你应当被神充满;因为圣灵的能力用神的大能来充满你。没有什么是神留住不赐给圣灵充满之人的。”

我想要把这事的重要性告诉你,所赐给你的不是医治——而是永活的基督。神的儿子降下要释放被掳的,这是一件荣耀的事实。

你被圣灵充满的时候,逼迫就开始了,你会怎么样呢?主耶稣自己也是如此。在圣灵彷佛鸽子降下以前,我们没有读到他受到任何的逼迫。圣灵充满不久以后,我们会发现,祂刚在家乡传道,人们就想把祂从山崖上推下去。十二门徒也是如此,五旬节那天以前他们并没有逼迫;但是就在他们被圣灵充满以后,就很快地被下监了。当一个人被圣灵充满,靠圣灵的能力行事的时候,魔鬼和宗教领袖们,常常要被搅动起来。逼迫其实是教会最大的祝福,有逼迫就有洁净。如果你渴望被圣灵充满,有一件事你一定会遇到,那就是逼迫。主来了,也带了纷争来,甚至就在你自己家里,也可能有三个人与两个人相争。

主耶稣来带来了平安,就在你里面得平安后,不久你外面也要受逼迫。如果你停止不前,魔鬼和他的差役就不会多打扰你。但是当你努力向前,并彻底下定决心与神同行,仇敌就会把你当作目标,但神却要在整件事上为你辩护。

有一次我主持聚会,主在那里作工,许多人得了医治。有一个人看到发生的事情就发评论说:“我也愿意试一试这件事。”他上来要代祷,并告诉我他的身体有两处受了伤。于是我奉主名按手在他身上,对他说:“现在,你相信神。”第二天晚上他来聚会,他像一头狮子一样地站起来,说:“我想告诉你们这些人,这人在这里是在欺骗你们,昨晚他为我两处破伤的地方,按手在我身上,但我一点也没见好。”我制止他说:“你得了医治,但问题是你不要信。”

第三天晚上这人再次来到聚会,当有作见证的机会时,他又站起来说:“我是以石匠为业的,今天我和一个工人做工时,必须搬动一块大石头。我就去帮助他,但却一点都不觉得痛,我问自己,‘我怎能做到这事呢?’于是我走开来,去一个能脱去衣服的地方看看,发现我已经好了。”我告诉大家:“昨天晚上这人反对神的话,但现在他信了。信的人有神迹随着是真的,按手在病人身上,病人就必好了。这一切都是借着在基督名字里面的能力。”就是圣灵来启示神的话,使这话在我们里面成为灵,成为生命。

你们这些寻求圣灵洗的人,要进入到一个有逼迫的地步。你最好的朋友们要离开你——或者那些你以为是最好朋友的,真正的好朋友永远不会离开你,但这却是值得的。你进入了一片光明的领域,或者说进入了因圣灵能力而来的启示,祂启示基督宝血的珍贵和能力。藉着圣灵的启示,我发现在我里面没有一件事是这血没洗净的,我还发现神藉着这血使我成圣,并启示我圣灵工作的功效。

司提反不过是一个披戴上了神的平常人。他满有信心和能力,就行出大奇事和神迹。啊!这在圣灵里面的生命!这在深处内在启示的生命,这从一种状态向另一种状态转变的生命,这在恩典里、在全备的知识里、在圣灵的能力里不断成长的生命,基督的生命和意念在你里面被更新,这不断启示祂大能的生命,这是惟一能使你站立得稳的。

在这样的生命里,主会将你放在各种各样的地方,然后在那里彰显他的能力。我曾经在纽约讲道,有一天乘坐卢西塔尼亚号客轮到英格兰去。我刚登上船,下到船舱,就有两个人在那里,其中一个说:“那么,要我陪伴你吗?”然后他拿出一个瓶子,倒了一杯威士忌然后喝了,接着又给我倒了满满一杯。我说:“我从来不沾这东西。”他问:“你怎么能没有它而活着呢?”我说:“我怎么能有了它还活着呢?”他承认说:“我深受这东西的影响已经有好多个月了,他们说我‘里面都萎缩干枯了’,我知道自己快要死了,愿意能得着释放,但我只是无法停止喝酒。哦!只要能得释放!我父亲死在了英格兰,把他的财产留给了我,但这除了让我快点进入坟墓,对我又有什么好处呢?”

我对这人说:“说一句话,就会得释放。”他询问道:“你是什么意思?”我说:“说一句话,表示你愿意得释放,神就会释放你。”但这好像已经超出了他理解的程度。于是我对他说:“站住了!”然后奉耶稣的名按手在他头上,咒诅那控制他生命的酗酒的鬼,他喊出来:“我自由了!我自由了!我知道我自由了!”他拿出两瓶威士忌,把他们扔出船外,扔向了大海,神拯救了他,使他清醒过来,也医治了他。我一路上都在传福音,他在餐桌上就坐在我旁边。在这事以前他不能吃饭,现在每顿饭都吃得精光。你只要得到耶稣的触摸,就会有一段好时光。神的能力今天仍不改变。对我来说,祂是可爱的;对我来说,祂拯救我的健康;对我来说,祂是谷中的百合花。哦,这位满有祝福的拿撒勒人,这位万王之王!哈利路亚!你要不要祂支配你的意愿呢?你要不要让祂拥有你呢?你若肯,祂所有的能力,就都要在你支配之中了。

他们不能抵挡借着司提反说话的智慧和圣灵,因此就在满腔的愤怒中把他带到公会。神用来自天上的一束光照亮了他的脸,不管付上多少的代价,被圣灵充满都是值得的。读第七章,看看这位圣徒所显示的,有能力的先知讲道口才。他无所畏惧地对他们说:“你们这硬着颈项,心与耳未受割礼的人,常常抗拒圣灵。”他们听见这些话,就心如刀割。人的心以两种相反的方式受到影响,在这里他们听了,就咬牙切齿,把司提反推出城外,用石头打他。但在五旬节那天,人们是听完道以后感到扎心,于是他们呼喊:“我们当怎样行?”五旬节的人选择了相反的方式。魔鬼,如果能按照自己的方式来,他会要叫你去杀人,但如果按照耶稣的方式来,你却要悔改!

但司提反被圣灵充满,定睛望天,看见神的荣耀,又看见人子站在神的右边,啊!这样被圣灵充满的!有着多么重大的意义啊。有一年的夏天,我骑马走了六十英里,当我往天空看的时候,一路上看见耶稣开启的异象,是圣灵给了这异象。

司提反大声喊着:“主啊,不要将这罪归于他们。”当他被圣灵充满的时候,他也充满了爱,他向仇敌显显现出同样的怜悯,就像耶稣在加略山显示的那样。这被圣灵充满在凡事上都是大有意义。这意味着常常的充满,常常的苏醒,和持续不断的新生命。哦,这是多么可爱啊!我们拥有一个奇妙的福音和一位伟大的救主!若你只被圣灵充满,在你里面就会有一个涌流不断的泉源。是的,当你的信心集中在主耶稣身上,从你腹中要流出活水的江河来!

Chapter 11

What It Means to Be Full of the Spirit

Bible Reading-Acts 6.

In the days when the number of disciples began to be multiplied there developed a situation which caused the twelve to make a definite decision not to occupy themselves with serving tables, but to give themselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. How important it is for all God's ministers to be continually in prayer, and constantly feeding on the Scriptures of Truth. I often offer a reward to anyone who can catch me anywhere without my Bible or my Testament.

None of you can be strong in God unless you are diligently and constantly hearkening to what God has to say to you through His Word. You cannot know the power and the nature of God unless you partake of His inbreathed Word. Read it at morn and at night, and at every opportunity you get. After every meal, instead of indulging in unprofitable conversation round the table, read a chapter from the Word and then have a season of prayer. I endeavor to make a point of doing this no matter where or with whom I am staying.

The Psalmist said that he had hid God's Word in his heart, that he might not sin against Him; and you will find that the more of God's Word you hide in your heart, the easier it is to live a holy life. He also testified that God's Word had quickened him; and, as you receive God's Word into your being, your whole physical being will be quickened and you will be made strong. As you receive with meekness the Word, you will find faith upspringing within. And you will have life through the Word.

The twelve told the rest to look out seven men to look after the business end of things. They were to be men of honest report and filled with the Holy Ghost. These were just ordinary men who were chosen, but they were filled with the Holy Spirit, and this infilling always lifts a man to a plane above the ordinary. It does not take a cultured or a learned man to fill a position in God's church; what God requires is a yielded, consecrated, holy life, and He can make of such a flame of fire. Baptized with the Holy Ghost and fire!

The multitude chose out seven men to serve tables. They were doubtless faithful in their appointed tasks, but we see that God soon had a better choice for two of them. Philip was so full of the Holy Ghost that he could have a revival wherever God put him down. Man chose him to serve tables, but God chose him to win souls. O, if I could only stir you up to see that as you are faithful in performing the humblest office, God can fill you with His Spirit and make you a chosen vessel for Himself, and promote you to a place of mighty ministry in the salvation of souls and in the healing of the sick. There is nothing impossible to a man filled with the Holy Ghost. It is beyond all human comprehension. When you are filled with the power of the Holy Ghost, God will wonderfully work wherever you go.

When you are filled with the Spirit you will know the voice of God. I want to give you one illustration of this. When I was going out to Australia recently, our boat stopped at Aden and at Bombay. In the first place the people came round the ship selling their wares, beautiful carpets and all sorts of oriental things. There was one man selling some ostrich feathers. As I was looking over the side of the ship watching the trading, a gentleman said to me, "Would you go shares with me in buying that bunch of feathers?" What did I want with feathers? I had no use for such things and no room for them either. But the gentleman put the question to me again, "Will you go shares with me in buying that bunch?" The Spirit of God said to me, "Do it."

The feathers were sold to us for three pounds, and the gentleman said, "I have no money on me, but if you will pay the man for them, I will send the cash down to you by the purser." I paid for the feathers and gave the gentleman his share. He was traveling first, and I was traveling second class. I said to him, "No, please don't give that money to the purser, I want you to bring it to me personally to my cabin." I said to the Lord, "What about these feathers?" He showed me that He had a purpose in my purchasing them.

At about 10 o'clock the gentleman came to my cabin and said, "I've brought the money." I said to him, "It is not your money that I want, it is your soul that I am seeking for God." Right there he opened up the whole plan of his life and began to seek God; and that morning he wept his way through to God's salvation.

You have no conception what God can do through you when you are filled with His Spirit. Every day and every hour you can have the divine leading of God. To be filled with the Holy Ghost means much in every way. I have seen some who have been suffering for years, and when they have been filled with the Holy Ghost everything of their sickness has passed away. The Spirit of God has made real to them the life of Jesus and they have been completely liberated of every sickness and infirmity.

Look at Stephen. He was just an ordinary man chosen to serve tables. But the Holy Ghost was in him and he was full of faith and power, and did great wonders and miracles among the people. There was no resisting the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake. How important it is that every man shall be filled with the Holy Spirit.

Tongues and Interpretation: "The divine will is that you should be filled with God; for the power of the Spirit to fill you with the mightiness of God. There is nothing God will withhold from a man filled with the Holy Ghost."

I want to impress the importance of this upon you. It is not healing that I am presenting to you-it is the living Christ. It is a glorious fact that the Son of God came down to bring liberty to the captives.

How is it that the moment you are filled with the Holy Ghost persecution starts? It was so with the Lord Jesus Himself. We do not read of any persecutions before the Holy Spirit came down like a dove upon Him. Shortly after this we find that, after preaching in His home town, they wanted to throw Him over the brow of a hill. It was the same with the twelve disciples. They had no persecution before the day of Pentecost; but after they were filled with the Spirit, they were soon in prison. The devil and the priests of religion will always get stirred when a man is filled with the Spirit and does things in the power of the Spirit. And persecution is the greatest blessing to a church. When we have persecution we will have purity. If you desire to be filled with the Spirit you can count on one thing, and that is persecution. The Lord came to bring division, and even in your own household you may find three against two.

The Lord Jesus came to bring peace; and soon after you get peace within, you get persecution without. If you remain stationary, the devil and his agents will not disturb you much. But when you press on and go the whole length with God the enemy has you as a target. But God will vindicate you in the midst of the whole thing.

At a meeting I was holding, the Lord was working and many were being healed. A man saw what was taking place and remarked, "I'd like to try this thing." He came up for prayer and told me that his body was broken in two places. I laid my hands on him in the name of the Lord, and said to him, "Now, you believe God." The next night he was at meeting and he got up like a lion. He said, "I want to tell you people that this man here is deceiving you. He laid his hands on me last night for rupture in two places, but I'm not a bit better." I stopped him and said, "You are healed, your trouble is that you won't believe it."

He was at meeting the next night and when there was opportunity for testimony this man arose. He said, "I'm a mason by trade. Today I was working with a laborer and he had to put a big stone in place. I helped him and did not feel any pain. I said to myself, `How have I done it?' I went away to a place where I could strip, and found that I was healed." I told the people, "Last night this man was against the Word of God, but now he believes it. It is true that these signs shall follow them that believe, they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. And all through the power that is in the name of Christ." It is the Spirit who has come to reveal the Word of God, and to make it spirit and life to us.

You people who are seeking the Baptism are entering a place where you will have persecution. Your best friends will leave you-or those you may esteem your best friends. No good friend will ever leave you. But it is worth while. You enter into a realm of illumination, or revelation by the power of the Holy Ghost. He reveals the preciousness and the power of the blood of Christ. I find by the revelation of the Spirit that there is not one thing in me that the blood does not cleanse. I find that God sanctifies me by the blood and reveals that efficacy of the work by the Spirit.

Stephen was just an ordinary man clothed with the divine. He was full of faith and power, and great wonders and miracles were wrought by him. Oh, this life in the Holy Ghost! this life of deep, inward revelation, of transformation from one state to another, of growing in grace and in all knowledge and in the power of the Spirit, the life and the mind of Christ being renewed in you, and of constant revelations of the might of His power. It is the only kind of thing that will enable us to stand.

In this life, the Lord puts you in all sorts of places, and then reveals His power. I had been preaching in New York, and sailed one day for England on the Lusitania. As soon as I got on board I went down to my cabin. Two men were there, and one of them said, "Well, will I do for company?" He took out a bottle and poured out a glass of whiskey and drank it, and then he filled it up for me. "I never touch that stuff," I said. "How can you live without it?" he asked. "How could I live with it?" I asked. He admitted, "I have been under the influence of this stuff for months, and they say my 'inside is all shrivelled up,' and I know that I am dying. I wish I could be delivered, but I just have to keep on drinking. Oh, if I could only be delivered! My father died in England and has given me his fortune, but what will the good of it be to me except to hasten me to my grave?"

I said to this man, "Say the word, and you will be delivered." He enquired, "What do you mean?" I said, "Say the word, show that you are willing to be delivered and God will deliver you." But it was just as if I was talking to this platform for all the comprehension he showed. I said to him, "Stand still," and I laid my hands on his head in the name of Jesus and cursed that drink demon that was taking his life. He cried out, "I'm free! I'm free! I know I'm free!" He took two bottles of whiskey and threw them overboard, and God saved, sobered and healed him. I was preaching all the way across. He sat beside me at the table. Previous to this he had not been able to eat; but at every meal he went right through the menu. You only have to have a touch from Jesus to have a good time. The power of God is just the same today. To me, He's lovely. To me, He's saving health. To me, He's the lily of the valley. O this blessed Nazarene, this King of kings! Hallelujah! Will you let Him have your will? Will you let Him have you? If you will, all His power is at your disposal.

They were not able to resist the wisdom and spirit by which Stephen spake, and so, full of rage, they brought him to the council. And God filled his face with a ray of heaven's light. It is worth being filled with the Spirit, no matter what it costs. Read the seventh chapter, the mighty prophetic utterance by this holy man. Without fear he tells them, "Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost." And when they heard these things they were cut to the heart. There are two ways of being affected at the heart. Here they gnashed their teeth and cast him out of the city and stoned him. On the day of Pentecost, when they were pricked at the heart they cried out, "What shall we do?" They took the opposite way. The devil, if he can have his way, will cause you to commit murder. If Jesus has His way, you will repent.

And Stephen, full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. O, this being full of the Holy Ghost! How much it means. I was riding for sixty miles one summer day and as I looked up in the heavens I had an open vision of Jesus all the way. It takes the Holy Ghost to give this.

Stephen cried out, "Lord, lay not this sin to their charge." As he was full of the Spirit he was full of love, and he manifested the very same compassion for his enemies that Jesus did at Calvary. This being filled with the Holy Ghost means much in every way. It means constant filling, quickening, and a new life continually. Oh, it's lovely! We have a wonderful gospel and a great Saviour! If you will but be filled with the Holy Ghost you will have a constant spring within, yea, as your faith centers in the Lord Jesus, from within you shall flow rivers of living water.
