第十二章圣灵洗的圣经证据

【翻译】不住增长的信心(12)圣灵洗的圣经证据 - heheaiyesu_和爱稣 - heheaiyesu(和爱稣)的博客

 今天,关于五旬节工作的纯正性,虽然有许多的争论,但有一个事实是毋庸置疑的,从十五年以前,“圣灵之事”开始复兴,直到如今也未停止。你会发现在全世界每一个地方,神都将祂的灵以一种令人瞩目的方式倾倒下来,就如第一世纪的教会的起始一样,以一个荣耀的复兴开始。当神让人们专心祷告时,他们并不明白神在做什么,但当他们希奇这些日子圣灵所带来的一切结果,接着就会发现他们自己正是在初代教会的地位上,并进入了五旬节那天使徒们同样的经历。

我们的主对祂的门徒说:“我要将父所应许的,降在你们身上,你们要在城里等候,直到你们领受从上头来的能力。”(路加福音24:49)神藉先知约珥应许说:“我要将我的灵浇灌凡有血气的 ……在那些日子,我要将我的灵浇灌我的仆人和使女。”因为就接受圣灵的事有普遍的误解,所以我相信主要我们在这件事上考察圣经。

亲爱的弟兄姊妹,你们该知道确实发生了什么事情,这确凿的事实感动了我。我已经受了圣灵的事实要多确实,就多确实,对此我有着绝对稳固的确信。当五旬节的浇灌在英格兰开始的时候,我去了桑德兰 Sunderland,英国英格兰东北部港口城市) 看望那些聚集要受圣灵的人。我那时不断在这些聚会中搅扰别人,直到他们真希望我没有来。他们说我在扰乱整个的情形,但我对神却如饥似渴,到桑德兰是因为我听说神正在以一种新的方式在浇灌祂的灵。我还听说,神已经光临祂的百姓,彰显了祂的能力,并且人们正在说方言,正如五旬节的日子一样。

当我到达那地方时说:“我不能明白这聚会,我刚刚离开布拉德福德 Bradford 的聚会,在那里一切就像为神着了火,昨天晚上这火降下来,我们都在神的能力之下扑倒了。我来这里是要说方言,但却没听见——什么也没听见。”

“哦!”他们说:“当你受圣灵洗的时候,你就会说方言。”“啊,就是这样吗?”我说,“当神来并与我同在时,我的舌头松开了,我真的觉得像是用一种新的语言在露天讲道一样。”“啊,不是的。”他们说,“不是那个。”我问,“那么,到底是什么呢?”我问。他们说:“当你在圣灵里受洗时……”“我已经受过这样的洗了。”我打断他们说,“没有一个人在这里能说服我,说我没有受过洗。”所以我起来反对他们,他们也起来反对我。

我记得有一个人站起来说:“你们知道,弟兄姊妹,我在这里有三个星期了,主用圣灵给我施洗,我开始说别的方言。”我说:“让我们听听,那就是我为什么要来这里的原因。”但是他不用方言说话。我所做的和别人在今天做的一样,把《哥林多前书》十二章和《使徒行传》二章弄混了,这两章其实处理的是不同的事情,一个是圣灵的恩赐,一个是伴随圣灵的洗而来的记号。我不明白这个,因此对那人说:“让我们听听你说方言。”但他不能,他并没有得着说方言的“恩赐”,他只有圣灵的洗。

随着时间的流逝我变得越来越饥渴,然而我还是很反对那些聚会。但主是有恩典的,我将永远记住最后一天——就是我要离开的那天晚上,神与我有着如此的同在。他们准备举行聚会,我去了,可是却无法休息。于是去了当地牧师的家里,在藏书室里,我对博迪太太(Boddy,当地牧师博迪的夫人) 说:“我不能再休息了,必须要说方言。”她回答说:“威格尔斯沃思弟兄,你需要的不是说方言而是圣灵的洗。如果你愿意让神给你施洗,说方言就不成问题。”“我亲爱的姊妹,我知道我已经受圣灵的洗了。”我说,“你知道四点钟我就得告别了,请按手在我身上,我好领受方言。”

于是她站起来,按手在我身上,圣灵的火降临了。我说:“火降下来了。”接着有人在不停地敲门,她不得不出去了。那真是我所遇到的最棒的事情,因为我与神单独在一起。然后祂赐我一个启示,哦!真是太奇妙了!祂给我显示了一个空的十字架,因为耶稣已经得了荣耀。为这空的十字架,我真的感谢神,基督已经不在十字架上了。就在那里祂受了咒诅,因为经上记着说“凡挂在木头上都是被咒诅的。”祂为我们成为罪好让我们在祂里面成为神的义,就在那里祂在荣耀里了。接着我看见神已经洁净了我,然后似乎神给我一个新的异象,我看见自己里面有一个完全的人,张开口说:“洁净!洁净!洁净!“当我开始张口重复这话的时候,我发现自己开始说起别的语言了。我的喜乐大到如此地步,以至于我要说话时无法用自己的语言,而是开始照着圣灵所赐我的口才,说起方言来敬拜神。

此时的一切都是那样美丽和平安,当耶稣开口说,“平安,安静!”那个时刻的安宁和喜乐要超过在这个时刻以前我所知的每一件事,我只能高唱哈利路亚!这些日子伴随着更伟大的、更有力的、更奇妙的属灵彰显和能力,但那不过是起头而已。这样的起头是没有终点的,通往圣灵之路将永远不会有终点,除非你进入那荣耀之地——直到你永永远远与神同在的时候,即使是在那个时候,我们也必将永远地意识到祂(圣灵)的同在。

我已经接受了什么?我已经接受了圣经的凭据,这圣经的凭据对我而言是奇妙的,我知道我接受的正是使徒们在五旬节那天圣灵来临的那凭据。我知道,在那个时刻之前所经历的每件事,都有一种膏抹的性质,乃是成为一条线索,好为今天这样的与神同在做预备,但是现在,我知道我拥有了圣经所描述的灵洗,这是有圣经根据来支持的。当你有了圣经的支持,你总是对的,如果你没有神的话作为见证的根基,你永远是不对的。

多年来我曾发出挑战,看任何人能否给我证明,他受了圣灵的洗却没有说方言——而且要用神的话,证明他已受了圣灵的洗,却没有圣经的凭据,但到现在为止还没有人接受这个挑战。我只是说这是因为许多人像我以前一样,他们有一个顽固的看法,就是可以领受圣灵的洗却没有圣经凭据。主耶稣要那些传道的人有传道的圣经凭据,不要被其它任何事情带错了方向。对你经历的,要有一个圣经的凭据,你才能达到一个没人能动摇你的地步。

我那时真是充满了喜乐,于是发电报给家里说我已经受了圣灵。我一到家,我的一个男孩就跑过来说:“父亲,你已经受了圣灵吗?”我说:“是的,我的孩子。”他说:“让我们听听你说方言吧。”但我却不能,为什么?我已经受圣灵的洗,并在那时说了方言,正如《使徒行传》24节所记载的,作为圣经的凭据。但我却没有领受《哥林多前书》十二章所记载的,说方言的恩赐,我只是接受了各样恩赐的恩赐者。一段时间以后,当我帮助一些人寻求并接受圣灵之洗时,神也给了我说方言的恩赐,好让我能随时说方言。我能说,但我却不愿意——而且永远也不!我一定要让圣灵使用这恩赐,这是理当如此的,我们应当只靠圣灵说属天的话语。我自己使用一个恩赐就会感到难过,然而恩赐者却有全权使用所有的九种恩赐。

我想将你带到圣经中证明我的情形。这里(应该是讲道的现场)有两个商人,他们会根据法律明白这个。在澳大利亚,如果有两个确实的证人,就能在任何法官前赢得一个官司。只要有两个见证人有确实的证据,任何法官都可以给出裁决。神给了我们什么呢?在受圣灵的洗的事上有三个见证——比法庭上需要的还多。

第一个在《使徒行传》24节:“他们就都被圣灵充满,按着圣灵所赐的口才,说起别国的话来。”这里我们有了最初始的例子,并且神赐给了彼得一句永远的话,伴随着这有应许在先的经验,“这正是(译者补充:先知约饵所预言的,神所应许的圣灵的浇灌)……”(使徒行传2:16)神要我们拥有圣经所应许的——而且不亚于那应许。祂要你按照最初五旬节的模式来接受圣灵的洗。

在《使徒行传》十章里,我们有了另一个见证,就是彼得在哥尼流家里。哥尼流已经有了圣天使的异象,于是他打发人去找彼得。有一天有个人来告诉我:“你不承认我是被圣灵充满并受了圣灵的洗,为什么?我十天十夜躺在神面前,祂的喜乐就如洪水一样充满我的灵魂。”我说:“赞美主,姊妹,那不过是开头而已。”门徒们在等候那个时刻,他们保持安静,于是神的大能降在他们身上,然后圣经描述了当这能力降临时会发生什么。这正是在哥尼流家发生的事情,圣灵降临在一切听道的人身上:“那些奉割礼和彼得同来的信徒,见圣灵的恩赐也浇在外邦人身上,就都希奇。”(使徒行传1:45)是什么说服了这些有成见的犹太人,让他们知道圣灵已经来了呢?“因听见他们说方言称赞神为大。”没有别的方式让他们知道,这凭据是无可辩驳的,是圣经的凭据。

我们已经听过两个见证了,这对判断这个世界上的事足够了,但神预备了更好的,还要加上一个。让我们看《使徒行传》196节:“保罗按手在他们头上,圣灵便降在他们身上,他们就说方言,又说预言。”这些以弗所人接受了同样圣经的凭据,就像使徒们当初一样,并且他们还要加上说预言。有三次圣经指示我们这圣灵洗的凭据。我并不称赞说方言的事为大,不,籍着神的恩典,我以赐下方言的赐恩者为大。并且我要超过一切地以那圣灵启示出来的主耶稣基督为大,祂是那差遣圣灵的,我要称赞祂,以祂为大,因为祂为我们预备的与起初的教会并无不同。

但说方言是为什么呢?读读《哥林多前书》142节,你会看到一个很有福的真理。哦,哈利路亚!你曾到过这地步吗,亲爱的?我告诉你,神要把你放在那里,“那说方言的,原不是对人说,乃是对神说,因为没有人听出来,然而在他心灵里,却是讲说各样的奥秘。”他又继续说:“说方言的是造就自己。”

进入神的应许吧,这是你要继承的基业。你要是真的被圣灵充满了,你一年里所做的要比你未被圣灵充满以前五十年做的还要多。

Chapter 12

The Bible Evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

There is much controversy today as regards the genuineness of this Pentecostal work, but there is nothing so convincing as the fact that over fifteen years ago a revival on Holy Ghost lines began and has never ceased. You will find that in every clime throughout the world God has poured out His Spirit in a remarkable way in a line parallel with the glorious revival that inaugurated the church of the first century. People, who could not understand what God was doing when He kept them concentrated in prayer, wondered as these days were being brought about by the Holy Ghost, and found themselves in exactly the same place and entering into an identical experience as the Apostles on the day of Pentecost.

Our Lord Jesus said to His disciples, "Behold, I send the promise of My Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high" (Luke 24:49). God promised through the prophet Joel, "I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh... Upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out My Spirit." As there is a widespread misconception concerning this receiving of the Holy Spirit, I believe the Lord would have us examine the Scriptures on this subject.

You know, beloved, it had to be something on the line of solid facts to move me. I was as certain as possible that I had received the Holy Ghost, and was absolutely rigid in this conviction. When this Pentecostal outpouring began in England I went to Sunderland and met with the people who had assembled for the purpose of receiving the Holy Ghost. I was continually in those meetings causing disturbances until the people wished I had never come. They said that I was disturbing the whole conditions. But I was hungry and thirsty for God, and had gone to Sunderland because I heard that God was pouring out His Spirit in a new way. I heard that God had now visited His people, had manifested His power and that people were speaking in tongues as on the day of Pentecost.

When I got to this place I said, "I cannot understand this meeting. I have left a meeting in Bradford all on fire for God. The fire fell last night and we were all laid out under the power of God. I have come here for tongues, and I don't hear them-I don't hear anything."

"Oh!" they said, "when you get baptized with the Holy Ghost you will speak in tongues." "Oh, is that it?" said I, "when the presence of God came upon me, my tongue was loosened, and really I felt as I went in the open air to preach that I had a new tongue." "Ah no," they said, "that is not it." "What is it, then?" I asked. They said, "When you get baptized in the Holy Ghost-" "I am baptized," I interjected, "and there is no one here who can persuade me that I am not baptized." So I was up against them and they were up against me.

I remember a man getting up and saying, "You know, brothers and sisters, I was here three weeks and then the Lord baptized me with the Holy Ghost and I began to speak with other tongues." I said, "Let us hear it. That's what I'm here for." But he would not talk in tongues. I was doing what others are doing today, confusing the 12th of I Corinthians with the 2nd of Acts. These two chapters deal with different things, one with the gifts of the Spirit, and the other with the Baptism of the Spirit with the accompanying sign. I did not understand this and so I said to the man, "Let's hear you speak in tongues." But he could not. He had not received the "gift" of tongues, but the Baptism.

As the days passed I became more and more hungry. I had opposed the meetings so much, but the Lord was gracious, and I shall ever remember that last day-the day I was to leave. God was with me so much that last night. They were to have a meeting and I went, but I could not rest. I went to the Vicarage, and there in the library I said to Mrs. Boddy, "I cannot rest any longer, I must have these tongues." She replied, "Brother Wigglesworth, it is not the tongues you need but the Baptism. If you will allow God to baptize you, the other will be all right." "My dear sister, I know I am baptized," I said. "You know that I have to leave here at 4 o'clock. Please lay hands on me that I may receive the tongues."

She rose up and laid her hands on me and the fire fell. I said, "The fire's falling." Then came a persistent knock at the door, and she had to go out. That was the best thing that could have happened, for I was ALONE WITH GOD. Then He gave me a revelation. Oh, it was wonderful! He showed me an empty cross and Jesus glorified. I do thank God that the cross is empty, that Christ is no more on the cross. It was there that He bore the curse, for it is written, "Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree." He became sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him, and now, there He is in the glory. Then I saw that God had purified me. It seemed that God gave me a new vision, and I saw a perfect being within me with mouth open, saying, "Clean! Clean! Clean!" When I began to repeat it I found myself speaking in other tongues. The joy was so great that when I came to utter it my tongue failed, and I began to worship God in other tongues as the Spirit gave me utterance.

It was all as beautiful and peaceful as when Jesus said, "Peace, be still!" and the tranquillity of that moment and the joy surpassed anything I had ever known up to that moment. But, Hallelujah! these days have grown with greater, mightier, more wonderful divine manifestations and power. That was but the beginning. There is no end to this kind of beginning. You will never get an end to the Holy Ghost till you are landed in the glory-till you are right in the presence of God forever. And even then w e shall ever be conscious of His presence.

What had I received? I had received the Bible evidence. This Bible evidence is wonderful to me. I knew I had received the very evidence of the Spirit's incoming that the Apostles received on the day of Pentecost. I knew that everything I had had up to that time was in the nature of an anointing bringing me in line with God in preparation, but now I knew I had the Biblical Baptism in the Spirit. It had the backing of the Scriptures. You are always right when you have the backing of the Scriptures and you are never right if you have not a foundation for your testimony in the Word of God.

For many years I have thrown out a challenge to any person who can prove to me that he has the Baptism without speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance-to prove it by the Word that he has been baptized in the Holy Ghost without the Bible evidence, but so far no one has accepted the challenge. I only say this because so many were as I was; they have a rigid idea that they have received the Baptism without the Bible evidence. The Lord Jesus wants those who preach the Word to have the Word in evidence. Don't be misled by anything else. Have a Bible proof for all you have, and then you will be in a place where no man can move you.

I was so full of joy that I wired home to say that I had received the Holy Ghost. As soon as I got home, my boy came running up to me and said, "Father, have you received the Holy Ghost?" I said, "Yes, my boy." He said, "Let's hear you speak in tongues." But I could not. Why? I had received the Baptism in the Spirit with the speaking in tongues as the Bible evidence according to Acts 2:4, and had not received the gift of Tongues according to 1 Corinthians 12. I had received the Giver of all gifts. At some time later when I was helping some souls to seek and receive the Baptism of the Spirit, God gave me the gift of Tongues so that I could speak at any time. I could speak, but will not-no never! I must allow the Holy Ghost to use the gift. It should be so, so that we shall have divine utterances only by the Spirit. I would be very sorry to use a gift, but the Giver has all power to use the whole nine gifts.

I want to take you to the Scriptures to prove my position. There are business men here, and they know that in cases of law, where there are two clear witnesses they could win a case before any judge in Australia. On the clear evidence of two witnesses any judge will give a verdict. What has God given us? Three clear witnesses on the Baptism in the Holy Spirit-more than are necessary in law courts.

The first is in Acts 2:4, "They were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance." Here we have the original pattern. And God gave to Peter an eternal word that couples this experience with the promise that went before. "This is that." And God wants you to have that—nothing less than that. He wants you to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit according to this original Pentecostal pattern.

In Acts 10 we have another witness. Peter is in the house of Cornelius. Cornelius had had a vision of a holy angel and had sent for Peter. A person said to me one day, "You don't admit that I am filled and baptized with the Holy Ghost. Why, I was ten days and ten nights on my back before the Lord and He was flooding my soul with joy." I said, "Praise the Lord, sister, that was only the beginning. The disciples were tarrying that time, and they were still, and the mighty power of God fell upon them then and the Bible tells what happened when the power fell. And that is just what happened in the house of Cornelius. The Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. "And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost." What convinced these prejudiced Jews that the Holy Ghost had come? "For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God." There was no other way for them to know. This evidence could not be contradicted. It is the Bible evidence.

We have heard two witnesses, and that is sufficient to satisfy the world. But God goes one better. Let us look at Acts 19:6, "And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues and prophesied." These Ephesians received the identical Bible evidence as the Apostles at the beginning and they prophesied in addition. Three times the Scriptures show us this evidence of the Baptism in the Spirit. I do not magnify tongues. No, by God's grace, I magnify the Giver of tongues. And I magnify above all Him whom the Holy Ghost has come to reveal to us, the Lord Jesus Christ. He it is who sends the Holy Spirit and I magnify Him because He makes no difference between us and those at the beginning.

But what are tongues for? Look at the 2nd verse of 1 Cor. 14 and you will see a very blessed truth. Oh, Hallelujah! Have you been there, beloved? I tell you, God wants to take you there. "He that speaketh in an unknown tongue, speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries." It goes on to say, "He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself."

Enter into the promises of God. It is your inheritance. You will do more in one year if you are really filled with the Holy Ghost than you could do in fifty years apart from Him.
