第十六章 作先知讲道(说预言)的恩赐

【翻译】不住增长的信心(16)作先知讲道(说预言)的恩赐 - heheaiyesu_和爱稣 - heheaiyesu(和爱稣)的博客

在《哥林多前书》1210节提到同一位圣灵赐给的不同的恩赐。保罗写道:“又叫一人能作先知。”从《哥林多前书》14章第1节可以知道这恩赐的重要性,那里告诉我们要追求爱,也要切慕属灵的恩赐,其中更要羡慕的是作先知讲道。我们也可以在后来看到:那作先知讲道的,是对人说,要造就、安慰、劝勉人。这恩赐是多么重要啊!我们应当让这恩赐在教会中显明出来,为的是让众圣徒都被建立,刚强起来并充满来自神的安慰。但是这也像所有其他恩赐一样,我们应该明白这恩赐也是藉着圣灵的能力而运行,并且是在圣灵的恩膏下才施行出来的。所以当这预言被神的灵带来的时候,我们每个人都应当听它,我们应当知道是带来这恩赐为要造就那些听见的人。是神的灵将这深奥的事拿来并且启示给我们,祂也恩膏这先知好让属神之事启示出来。

作先知讲道的话语有着真实提升的能力,并在真理上将真实的亮光带给那些听见的人。作先知讲道,决不是一个思想的反应,而是某种比这深多了的事情。通过作先知讲道我们接受主的心思意念,并且当我们接受这由主的灵而来的,有福的新鲜言语时,所有的会众被提起进入了属灵的领域。我们的心和思想,以及整个身体也会接受那借着圣灵所赐话语而生出的苏醒和活泼。当圣灵带来作先知讲道时,我们会发现,在每个层面上都有医治、拯救和能力。为着这个原因,这恩赐是我们应当切慕追求的。

当我们宝贵那真实的作先知讲道时,不可忘记圣经也以确定的方式警告我们要防备那虚假的。《约翰一书》41节告诉我们:“亲爱的弟兄啊,一切的灵,你们不可都信,总要试验那些灵是出于神的不是,因为世上有许多假先知已经出来了。”接着约翰又告诉我们如何分辨真的和假的,“凡灵认耶稣基督是成了肉身来的,就是出于神的,从此你们可以认出神的灵来。凡灵不认耶稣,就不是出于神,这是那敌基督者的灵。你们从前听见他要来,现在已经在世上了。”有的声音似乎很像作先知讲道,并也有人已经因为听了那假冒作先知讲道之恩赐的声音,而落入可怕的黑暗和捆绑中。真的作先知讲道总是高举基督,称赞神的儿子为大,并高举耶稣基督的宝血,鼓励众圣徒赞美和敬拜真神。假的作先知讲道的所做的不会给人带来启发,并故意让听众骄傲夸大,引导他们进入谬误里。

许多的图画把撒旦描绘为一个巨大、丑陋的怪物,有着一双大耳朵、一对大眼睛和一根尾巴,但圣经并没有给我们这样的图画。他乃是全然美丽,心中变为高傲的。今天他到处以光明的天使样式显示自己,却是充满了骄傲,如果你不小心,他就要试着让你认为自己是某个特别的人物。这是大多数传道人和大多数人的软弱——想成为某个特别的人!其实我们中没有人是特别的,我们越是知道我们自己什么也不是,神就能越多让我们成为祂能力的管道。愿亲爱的主就我们脱离所有的这些骄傲的旁门左道——它们其实是魔鬼的陷阱。真正的作先知讲道要指示你基督是一切的一切,并让你知道你在自己里面不过是一无是处,不过是虚空。虚假的作先知讲道不但不称基督为大,反而让你认为你自己会成为什么大人物,当这样的事情的发生时,你就可以确信这是来自那“骄傲之子的首领”。

我想要警告你不要总是不断地寻求想听什么声音,这是一种的愚昧的行为。去查阅圣经吧,这里面有神的声音,祂在每个时代,用不同的方式,在从前藉众先知向先祖们说话,在这些末后的日子里藉祂的儿子向我们说话,不要偏离这方向,跑到其它事情上去。如果你听到了神的声音,那是会与圣经上被圣灵感动的真理保持一致的。在《启示录》221819节,我们看到试要加添或删去这圣经上先知预言的危险。真正的预言,既然是从神之灵的能力而来,就既不能删除也不能加添这圣经,反而更要加强、复苏这神已经赐给我们的话语。圣灵会使我们想起耶稣所说过的一切话,所做过的一切事。真的作先知讲道,会将真理之圣经中新事和旧事的真正意义带出来,让它们对我们成为有生命的,有能力的。

有人或者会问:“既然我们有圣经,为什么还需要作先知讲道呢?”圣经自己回答了这个问题,神已经说了,在末后的日子祂要将祂的灵浇灌凡有血气的,“你们的儿女要说预言。”主知道在这末后的日子里说预言要成为一个祝福我们的实在方式,这也是为什么我们能倚赖祂通过圣灵,藉着祂众仆人和使女赐给我们的真实的预言信息。

关于听声音的事我想要给你一个警戒的例子。在苏格兰佩斯利 Poisley)一个聚会中,我遇到两个年轻的女人,其中一位穿着一件女式衬衫,但上面却沾了一些血迹,而且她们两人受了极大的刺激。这两个女孩都是电报员,也是宝贵的主内姊妹,并且也已经接受了圣灵洗,她们都很渴望做传教士。但无论我们属灵的状态如何,我们还是会经受试探。一个邪灵来对这两个年轻女人中的其中一位说:“如果你愿意服从我,我会让你成为一直以来出外传教的传教士中最好的一个。”这就是魔鬼或是他的差役假扮成光明的天使。两位年轻女人中的一个立刻被俘虏了,她变得非常激动,以至于她的姊妹看出有什么事情不对,就请求工作监督准许她们离开一阵子,好休息一下。

当她们回到家的时候,撒旦的权势努力装作神的灵,并在一个声音中显示他自己,引导这位年轻的女人相信他,让她以为如果顺服他,这传教差会的计划当天晚上就会显露出来,她要出去传教。这个邪灵说:“除了你的姊妹这件事你不要告诉任何人。”我想神的每件事都是能告诉每个人的,如果你不能传你自己活出来的生活,那你活出来的生命就错了。如果你害怕告诉别人你在暗中所作的,这些事有一天要从房顶上宣扬出来。不要认为你自己会例外,凡清洁的必来就光,行真理的必来就光,要显明他所行的,是靠神而行。(约翰福音3:21

邪灵继续对这女孩说:“今天晚上你去火车站,有一趟列车会在732分到达,去为你和你的姊妹买两张票,以后还剩下六个便士。你会在一个车厢里找到一位打扮成护士的女人,她对面坐着的一位先生,会有你所需要的一切钱。”女孩买了票,果然只剩下六便士,遇见的第一件事对了。接着的一件事也没错,列车也刚好在732分进站。但是下面一件事却没有发生,她们俩在火车尚未开动时,在列车里上上下下也没有找到她们被告知要发生的事。列车一开动,同样的声音又来了:“在另外的站台上。”整个晚上,这两位年轻女人就是从一个站台冲到另一个站台,如此直到九点半。一到九点半,同一个邪灵又说:“现在我知道你愿意服从我了,我要让你成为最伟大的传教士。”总是要人成为什么伟大的!她们可能已经知道这是完全错了,邪灵又说:“这位绅士先生要带你到格拉斯哥(Glasgow 某个角落上的某某银行那里,他会为你存进所需要的那笔钱。”格拉斯哥的银行在晚上是不开门的,如果她去那邪灵提到的那条街,可能根本不会有银行。这两位姊妹所需要的,其实是一点小小的常识,这样她们就会看出那根本不是出乎主,如果你的心对这种声音是敞开的,你很快就会堕入陷阱,我们必须常常记住在这个世界上有许多的邪灵。

这两人得释放了吗?是的,只是在神面前经历了一番可怕的挣扎,费了许多气力,她们才完全得了释放。她们的眼睛被打开了,就看出这事不是出乎神乃是出乎魔鬼,这两位姊妹现在正为主在中国劳力作工,为祂做那蒙福的工作。如果你也在这类的事上进入了错误之中,赞美神,总有一条出来的路。我赞美神,为着祂要破碎我们,直到所有的骄傲都离开我们,高举自己的骄傲是我们所有的骄傲中最坏的。

保罗写到主的命令,“至于作先知讲道的,只好两个人,或是三个人,其余的就当慎思明辨。若旁边坐著的得了启示,那先说话的就当闭口不言。因为你们都可以一个一个地作先知讲道,叫众人学道理,叫众人得劝勉。”(哥林多前书1429-31)如果你不能谦卑到足够允许别人判断你说的预言,那么你所说的或者实在也是错了,正像你自己是错了一样,预言必当受到判断。一个就像保罗所建议的这样的聚会,无疑会成为你参加过的最好的聚会。赞美神,浪潮会高升到如此地步的。当教会被浸泡和沉湎在只荣耀耶稣的伟大理想中的时候,所有就要进入完美的次序之中,然后事情也要成就并且也是有价值的了。

与先知讲道的恩赐相伴你会结出一样圣灵的果子,那就是良善。那些在旧约的日子里,在圣灵的感动和催促下说预言的人都是圣洁的人,因此今天的先知也是可以被信任的,他们是被良善所充满的,那良善就是圣灵的果子。但是当先知走出这职责的范围,停留在他自己的个人上时,他就处在虚荣和成为仇敌工具的危险中。

我认识一些人,他们拥有一处美妙的农场,土地非常肥沃,邻居也很棒。他们听见有声音告诉他们卖掉所有东西去非洲。这些声音是如此地搅扰他们,以至于他们连卖出去的功夫都没有,最后他们以一个可笑的价钱卖掉了那些财产。这同一个声音还告诉他们该乘哪艘船出海,但他们到达港口时,却发现那里没有一艘船是那名字的。难处在于如何叫他们不信这些假声音,他们说,大概那是主的心意要另外给他们一条船,接着声音就很快给了他们另外一条船的名字。到了非洲他们不会说当地的语言,只是声音还是不让他们停下。最后他们不得不回来了,不仅伤透了心,信心也动摇了,并且在凡事上失去了信念。如果这些人有分辨力,先到被圣灵充满、属神的人那里寻求忠告,他们就会很快地被劝服,知道这些声音不是出乎神的。听见这样的声音常会带来属灵上的骄傲,使人,无论男女,会认为自己会比弟兄姊妹优越,让他们以为自己已经超越了那些忠告他们,提反对意见的人,认为这些人没有像他们一样被圣灵充满。如果你听见任何声音,让你认为自己比神放在教会里管理教会的人更为优越,要小心,那一定是魔鬼。

在《启示录》里我们读到耶稣的见证就是说预言的灵,你发现真正先知的讲话总是在高举神的羔羊。

除非有火在里面,预言的触摸是没有什么好处的。如果火尚未点燃,我从不盼望为神所用。我觉得,如果我曾讲话,那必定是借着圣灵而行。同时要记住先知也必须照着所量给的信心说预言。如果你从你的软弱中起来,总要在爱中也起来,因为你想要荣耀神,这样刚刚开始,你就会发现主的同在就会临到。在信心里行动,主要满足你。

愿神带领我们向前又向前,进入这信心荣耀的事实里,好叫我们可以如此地在圣灵里,以至于神会在神迹的层面和说预言的层面籍着我们做祂的工,这时候我们应当不再是我们,而是祂在籍着我们工作,如此就带出那在祂自己神圣美善的喜悦里所有的一切来。


  

附英文原文:

Chapter 16

The Gift of Prophecy

In 1 Cor. 12:10, speaking of the diversities of gifts by the same Spirit, Paul writes, "To another prophecy." We see the importance of this gift from 1 Cor. 14:1, where we are told to follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that we may prophesy. We see also that he that prophesieth speaketh unto man to edification, and exhortation and comfort. How important it is then that we should have this gift in manifestation in the church in order that the saints might be built up and made strong and filled with the comfort of God. But with this as all other gifts we should see that it is operated by the Spirit's power and brought forth in the unction of the Spirit; so that everyone who shall hear prophecy, as it is brought forth by the Spirit of God, shall know that it is GOD who is bringing forth that which is for the edification of those who hear. It is the Spirit of God who takes of the deep things of God and reveals them, and unctionizes the prophet to give forth that which is a revelation of the things of God.

Utterance in prophecy has a real lifting power and gives real light on the truth to those who hear. Prophecy is never a mind reflection, it is something far deeper than this. By means of prophecy we receive that which is the mind of the Lord; and as we receive these blessed, fresh utterances through the Spirit of the Lord the whole assembly is lifted into the realm of the spiritual. Our hearts and minds and whole bodies receive a quickening through the Spirit-given word. As the Spirit brings forth prophecy we find there is healing and salvation and power in every line. For this reason it is one of the gifts that we ought to covet.

While we appreciate true prophecy, we must not forget that the Scriptures warn us in no uncertain manner concerning that which is false. In 1 John 4:1 we are told, "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God : because many false prophets are gone out into the world." And John tells us how we can tell the difference between the true and the false, "Hereby know ye the Spirit of God : every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God : and every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God; but this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come." There are voices which seem like prophecy and some have got into terrible darkness and bondage through listening to these counterfeits of the true gift of prophecy. True prophecy is always Christ-exalting, magnifying the Son of God, exalting the blood of Jesus Christ, encouraging the saints to praise and worship the true God. False prophecy deals with things that do not edify and is designed to puff up its hearers and to lead them into error.

Many picture Satan as a great, ugly monster with great ears, eyes and a tail; but the Scriptures give us no such picture of him. He was a being of great beauty whose heart became lifted up. He is manifesting himself everywhere today as an angel of light. He is full of pride, and if you don't watch he will try to make you think you are somebody. This is the weakness of most preachers and most men-the idea of being somebody! There are none of us who are anything, and the more we know we are nothing, the more God can make us a channel of His power. May the dear Lord save us from all these pride side-lines—they are the devil's traps. True prophecy will show you that Christ is all in all, and that you are in yourself less than nothing and vanity. False prophecy will not magnify Christ but will make you think that after all you are going to be some great one. You may be sure that such is inspired by "the chief of the sons of pride."

I want to warn you against the foolishness of continually seeking to hear voices. Look in the Bible. Here we have the voice of God, who at sundry times and in divers manners, spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, and hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son. Don't run away with anything else. If you hear the voice of God it will be on the line of the Scriptures of truth given in the inspired Word. In Rev. 22:18, 19 we see the danger of attempting to add to or take from the prophecy of this Book. True prophecy, as it comes forth in the power of the Spirit of God, will neither take from nor add to the Scriptures, but will intensify and quicken that which already has been given to us of God. The Holy Ghost will bring to our remembrance all the things that Jesus said and did. True prophecy will bring forth things new and old out of the Scriptures of truth and will make them living and powerful to us.

Some may ask, "If we have the Scriptures, why do we need prophecy?" The Scriptures themselves answer this question. God has said that in the last days He will pour out of His Spirit upon all flesh, "and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy." The Lord knew that in these last days prophecy would be a real means of blessing to us, and that is why we can count on Him giving us, by means of the Spirit, through His servants and His handmaids, true prophetic messages.

I want to give you a warning concerning listening to voices. I was at a meeting in Paisley in Scotland and came in touch with two young women. One of them wore a white blouse but it was smeared with blood. They were in a great state of excitement. These two girls were telegraph operators and were precious young women, having received the Baptism in the Spirit. They were both longing to be missionaries. But whatever our spiritual state is we are subject to temptations. An evil power came to one of these young women and said, "If you will obey me, I will make you one of the most wonderful missionaries that ever went out." This was just the devil or one of his agents acting as an angel of light. One of these young women was captured immediately and she became so excited that her sister saw there was something wrong and asked the overseer to allow them to be free for a time.

As she took her into a room, the power of Satan, endeavoring to imitate the Spirit of God, manifested itself in a voice, and led this young woman to believe that the missionary enterprise would be unfolded that night if she would obey. This evil spirit said, "Don't tell anybody but your sister." I reckon that everything of God can be told everybody. If you cannot preach what you live, your life is wrong. If you are afraid of telling what you do in secret. Some day it will be told from the housetop. Don't think you will get out of it. That which is pure cometh to the light. He that doeth truth cometh to the light that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

The evil power went on to say to this girl, "You go to the railroad station tonight, and there will be a train coming in at 7 :32. Buy a ticket for yourself and your sister. Then you will have six pence left. You will find a woman in a carriage dressed as a nurse, and opposite her will be a gentleman who has all the money you need." She bought her ticket and had just six pence left. The first thing came right. Next, the train came in at exactly 7:32. But the next thing did not come. They ran from the top to the bottom of that railroad train before it moved out and nothing turned out as they had been told. As soon as the train moved out the same voice came and said, "Over on the other platform." All that night until 9:30 these two young women were rushed from platform to platform. As soon as it was 9:30 this same evil power said, "Now that I know you will obey me, I will make you the greatest missionaries." Always something big! They might have known it was all wrong. This evil power said, "This gentleman will take you to a certain bank at a certain corner in Glasgow where he will put all that money in for you." Banks are not open at that time of night in Glasgow. If she had gone to the street this evil spirit mentioned, there probably would not have been a bank there. All they needed was a little common sense and they would have seen that it was not the Lord. If you have your heart open for these kind of voices you will soon get into a trap. We must ever remember that there are many evil spirits in the world.

Were these two people delivered? Yes, after terrible travail with God, they were perfectly delivered. Their eyes were opened to see that this thing was not of God but of the devil. These two sisters are now laboring for the Lord in China and doing a blessed work for Him. If you do get into error on these lines, praise God there is a way out. I praise God that He will break us down till all pride leaves us. The worst pride we can have is the pride of exaltation of self.

Paul wrote at the commandment of the Lord, "Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the others judge. If anything be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted." If you are not humble enough to allow your prophecy to be judged, it is as surely wrong as you are wrong. Prophecy has to be judged. A meeting such as this one that Paul suggests would certainly be the greatest meeting you ever had. Praise God, the tide will rise to this. It will all come into perfect order when the church is bathed and lost in the great ideal of only glorifying Jesus. Then things will come to pass that will be worth while.

Coupled with prophecy you will have the fruit of the Spirit that is goodness. They were holy men who spoke in prophecy in days of old as the Holy Ghost prompted them, and so today the prophet who can be trusted is a man that is full of goodness, that goodness which is the fruit of the Spirit. But when he gets out of this position, and rests upon his own individuality, he is in danger of being puffed up and becoming an instrument for the enemy.

I knew some people who had a wonderful farm, very productive, in a very good neighborhood. They listened to voices telling them to sell everything and go to Africa. These voices so unhinged them that they had scarcely had time to sell out. They sold their property at a ridiculous price. The same voices told them of a certain ship they were to sail on. When they got to the port they found there wasn't a ship of that name. The difficulty was this, to get them not to believe these false voices. They said perhaps it was the mind of the Lord to give them another ship, and the voice soon gave them the name of another ship. When they reached Africa they knew no language that was spoken there. But the voice did not let them stop. They had to come back, brokenhearted, shaken through, and having lost all confidence in everything. If these people had had sense to go to some men of God who were filled with the Spirit and seek their counsel, they would soon have been persuaded that these voices were not of God. But listening to these voices always brings about a spiritual pride that makes a man or woman think that they are superior to their brethren, and that they are above taking counsel of men who they think are not so filled with the Spirit as they are. If you hear any voices that make you think that you are superior to those whom God has put in the church to rule the church, watch out, that is surely the devil.

We read in the Revelation that the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. You will find that true prophetic utterance always exalts the Lamb of God.

No prophetic touch is of any good unless there is fire in it. I never expect to be used of God till the fire burns. I feel that if I ever speak, it must be by the Spirit. At the same time remember that the prophet must prophesy according to the measure of faith. If you rise up in your weakness, but rise up in love because you want to honor God, and just begin, you will find the presence of the Lord upon you. Act in faith and the Lord will meet you.

May God take us on and on into this glorious fact of faith, that we may be so in the Holy Ghost that God will work through us on the line of the miraculous and on the lines of prophecy, where we shall always know that it is no longer we but He who is working through us, bringing forth that which is in His own divine good pleasure.
