Baragumu ya Injili Inafuta Ubaya

"Malaika wa kwanza akapiga kelele, na mvua ya mawe na moto uliochanganywa na damu zikatupwa ardhini. Sehemu ya tatu ya miti ikachomwa, na nyasi zote za kijani zikachomwa." ~ Ufunuo 8: 7

Wakati Yesu alianzisha kanisa lake kwanza na kuwapa nguvu kwa Roho Mtakatifu, ujumbe wa damu ya Kristo ulikuwa na athari mara mbili. Kwa wale ambao walikaribisha wokovu wake, damu yake ilikuwa rehema kwa roho yao. Kwa wale waliomsulubisha na kuendelea kupinga huruma yake, wakawa na hatia zaidi ya damu.

Baragumu hii ya kwanza inaonyesha athari ya kuhubiriwa kwa injili katika muhuri wa kwanza, au "wakati wa asubuhi wa siku ya Injili." Inaonyesha athari za injili kwa Wayahudi waliojiona kuwa waadilifu, na athari ambayo ilikuwa nayo kwa mataifa mengine ya kipagani.

Kwa sababu hiyo, ujumbe wa injili kwa wanafiki wa Kiyahudi ulikuwa kama mvua ya mawe na moto, vikichanganywa na damu. Ndio maana Petro alihubiri kutoka kwa unabii wa Agano la Kale siku ya Pentekosti na kusema:

“Na juu ya watumishi wangu na juu ya wajakazi wangu nitamimina siku zile za Roho yangu; nao watatabiri: Nami nitaonyesha maajabu mbinguni juu, na ishara katika ardhi chini; damu, na moto, na mvuke ya moshi ”~ Matendo 2: 18-19

Miti hai inawakilisha watu ambao maisha yao ni ya haki kupitia Yesu Kristo. Ndio sababu Yesu alinukuu maandishi yafuatayo katika sunagogi alipoanza huduma yake.

“Ili kuwachagua wale wanaoomboleza Sayuni, wape uzuri wa majivu, mafuta ya furaha kwa huzuni, vazi la sifa kwa roho ya uzani; wapate kuitwa miti ya haki, upandaji wa Bwana, ili atukuzwe. " ~ Isaya 61: 3

But another prophecy from Isaiah which spoke of preparing the way to receive Jesus Christ, also spoke of judgement upon those who would reject him. It stated that those who reject him, would be like the grass that would wither under the sounding of the Word (which is the gospel trumpet.)

“Sauti ya yeye analia jangwani, Tengenezeni njia ya Bwana, tengenezeni Mungu njia yetu jangwani. Kila bonde litainuliwa, na kila mlima na kilima zitashushwa; na mahali palipobomoka vitashushwa, na mahali palipokuwa wazi: Na utukufu wa Bwana utafunuliwa, na kila mtu ataona pamoja. kinywa cha Bwana kimesema hayo. Sauti ilisema, Kalia. Akasema, Nitalia nini? Nyama yote ni nyasi, na uzuri wake wote ni kama maua ya shamba. Nyasi hukauka, ua hukauka, kwa sababu roho ya Bwana inavuma; hakika watu ni majani. Nyasi hukauka, ua hukauka; lakini neno la Mungu wetu litasimama milele. ~ Isaya 40: 3-8

So we see that the sounding of the of first trumpet especially happened in the morning time of the Gospel day. This does not exclude the gospel from working this way at any other time in history. But it is just especially emphasized during the first couple centuries of the gospel day. During that time a third of those who seemed to be righteous, were eventually shown to be burned up by the gospel judgement. And of course, those who never claimed to be righteous, were also spiritually burned by the gospel truth of Jesus Christ.

Of course, if any would be honest and repent of their sin, they could then be made righteous by the blood of Christ. This does not mean they were physically burned up, but rather that the strong gospel message exposed that they were spiritually dead in their soul!

"Malaika wa kwanza akapiga kelele, na mvua ya mawe na moto uliochanganywa na damu zikatupwa ardhini. Sehemu ya tatu ya miti ikachomwa, na nyasi zote za kijani zikachomwa." ~ Ufunuo 8: 7

So where has the full gospel of Jesus Christ found you? Does it find you as spiritual grass that easily dries up and burns? Or has the blood of Christ saved you from all sin and changed your heart so that you are as a deep-rooted, righteous tree planting, of the Lord? For righteous trees will not wither under the trumpet sounding of judgement preaching!

“Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.” ~ Jeremiah 17:7-8
