Ministry in Word

Things Unshaken – Part 6
那不被震动的 – 第六篇

Hebrews 12:26-28 (NKJV)
希伯來書12:26-28

but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace,by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.

当时他的声音震动了地,但如今他应许说:再一次我不单要震动地,还要震动天。这再一次的话,是指明被震动的,就是受造之物都要挪去,使那不被震动的常存。所以我们既得了不能震动的国,就当感恩,照神所喜悦的,用虔诚、敬畏的心事奉神。

Last 4 weeks we examined 9 of the 10 aspects of receiving the unshakable kingdom that will remain. Now we continue with the tenth aspect.

上四周我们察看了我们领受那不被震动,常存的这国十个方面之九方面。现在我们要看第十方面。

10. BY DOING THE WILL OF GOD
十、 藉着遵行神的旨意

Lastly we enter the kingdom by doing the will of God. We learn this truth because Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.” (Mt 7:21) Entering the kingdom means submitting ourselves to the authority of our King Jesus. If we are obedient to Him, we must be doing His will. It is not those who only call Jesus Lord, but those who really act on God’s will that have entered the kingdom.

最後,我们藉着遵行神的旨意来进入国度。我们知道这个真理因为耶稣说「凡称呼我主阿,主阿的人不能都进天国;惟独遵行我天父旨意的人才能进去。」〔太7:21〕进入国度表示我们服从我们的君王耶稣的杈柄。如果我们服从他我们一定是在遵行他的旨意。不是那些只称耶稣主阿的人,而是那些实践神的旨意已进了国度的人。


CONCLUSION
结语

Today’s scriptures tell us about the things that will not be shaken at the last days, and that we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken. We have looked at 10 different aspects of receiving the kingdom. That is, we receive the unshakable kingdom

今天的经文告诉我们关于那些事物在末世时不被震动,而我们在领受一个不被震动的国。我们察看了领受国度的十方面。那就是我们领受不被震动的国度是

1. BY EXPERIENCING NEW BIRTH – by being born again
一、 藉着新生的经历 - 藉着重生

2. BY RECEIVING IT AS A GIFT FROM JESUS – we cannot earn it
二、 藉着从耶稣那里得到它作礼物 – 我们不能赚取它

3. BY RESPONDING TO GOD’S CALL – we choose to receive it
三、 藉着回应神的呼召 – 我们选择去领受它

4. BY REPENTING OF OUR SINS – we turn from our iniquities
四、 藉着悔改我们的罪 – 我们从我们的罪过中回转

5. BY BEING REDEEMED THROUGH CHRIST – Jesus is the only Savior
五、 藉着透过基督得救赎 – 耶稣是唯一的救主

6. BY ACCEPTING CHRIST’S RIGHTEOUSNESS – we are justified through faith in Jesus alone
六、 藉着接受基督的义 – 我们单靠耶稣称义

7. BY FOLLOWING JESUS – Jesus has the top priority of our heart
七、 藉着跟随耶稣 – 耶稣在我们心中有最高优先

8. BY LOVING GOD – we love God because He has first loved us
八、 藉着爱神 -我们爱神因为他先爱我们

9. BY PERSEVERING IN THE FAITH – we continue in our faith in our trials
九、 藉着恒守所信的道 – 在我们的试炼中持续我们的信心

10. BY DOING THE WILL OF GOD – we submit to the authority of God
十、 藉着遵行神的旨意 – 我们服从神的杈柄

All created things in this world will be shaken and removed. But the kingdom of God cannot be shaken. The kingdom is here and now in the believers’ hearts. One day it will become universal when all knees shall bow and all mouths confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

这世界上所有受造之物都要被震动被挪去。但神的国不能被震动。现今国度已在信徒心里,有一天它会成为人类全体的,那时万膝都要跪拜万口都要承认耶稣基督是主。

May we submit ourselves to the authority of Jesus, following His example of obedience to God, entering the kingdom by doing His will.

愿我们我们服从耶稣的杈柄,模彷他对神顺服的榜样,藉著行他的旨意来进入国度里。
