"No matter what my heart will be Yours forever and I will fight till the day I see You again. 愛是生命的動力!!! 信心!謙卑!希望! Love is the driving force of life!!! Confidence! Humility! Hope! "Love complete my life of living! The Spirit of Love never fails, and miracles happen when you have the faith to believe in love! Be true to what God has put in your heart and don't look to the left or to the right. Stay focused on what God says! Be calm and stable, but passionate with enthusiasm!

Exodus23;出埃及記第二十三章

「你們要事奉耶和華──你們的上帝,祂必賜福與你的糧與你的水。」(出埃及記二十
三:25)

這是多麼令人不可思議的應許,服事上帝本身就是一種快樂,但上帝更額外在各樣的事上祝福,連日用的飲食,都不例外。我們的主拿起餅,祝福了分給大家,看哪,我們吃這祝福過的餅。耶穌也曾使水變酒,這水要比一般人飲酒作樂的酒要好太多,每一滴都有上帝的祝福。屬上帝的人在凡事上都蒙福,而且時刻蒙上帝眷顧。

若我們僅有麵包和水,會怎樣﹖上帝依然會祝福這微薄的食物。上帝不僅是看重祭壇上的獻品,祂也在家居的餐桌旁,祝福日用最普通的飲食。那些忠心服事耶和華的,祂必要大大祝福他。不是出於報答,乃是出於恩典。真的,這是三重的恩典:祂給我們機會服事祂,又供應我們日用的飲食,又施恩祝福這些糧與水。

要記得!眾人的聲音,並不就是神的聲音。群眾常常是盲目的。歷史上所有準備的行動,常常起始於少數孤單的人,他們確定的聽見了神的聲音,因而孤單的為站住。Lloyd Garrison曾說過一句名言:「與神站在一邊的,即或是個人,也是多數。」聖約的使者有神的名號,走在我們面前,是我們最大的鼓勵。當我們在曠野向前走的時候,我們可以看見他的儀態,別人雖看不見,他強壯的手卻預備我們的路。讓我們謹慎不可違背他,使他擔憂,免得失去他的保護。他低語的指示,我們也要嚴格遵從,他一定維護我們,不致遭仇敵的陷害。在特選的軍隊前,同一聲音應許我們勝敵。他要打發黃蜂飛在你面前,把那些仇敵攆出去。黃蜂是人們無法抗拒的。

你有仇敵嗎?他們必因真理恨惡你,因為黑暗必與光明作對。你若向善,有誰可加害你呢?你若為義受逼迫,應當歡喜快樂,不必驚怕。你不必憎恨與報復。想想他們內心的悲慘,因為其中充滿嫉妒與惡毒。還是可憐他們,為他們禱告吧!

我們與神和好,就會有新的仇敵。恨神的,必也恨我們。憎恨主人的,也必敵對他的僕人。但是我們與神是合一的,祂的仇敵就是我們的,我們的仇敵,他必對付。祂必不容我們落在他們的手中,祂必給予我們維護與拯救。

“Ye shall serve the LORD your God, and He shall bless thy bread, and thy water"(Exodus 23:25).
What a promise is this! To serve God is in itself a high delight. But what an added privilege to have the blessing of the LORD resting upon us in all things! Our commonest things become blessed when we ourselves are consecrated to the LORD. Our LORD Jesus took bread and blessed it; behold, we also eat of blessed bread. Jesus blessed water and made it wine: the water which we drink is far better to us than any of the wine with which men make merry; every drop has a benediction in it. The divine blessing is on the man of God in everything, and it shall abide with him at every time.

What if we have only bread and water! Yet it is blessed bread and water. Bread and water we shall have. That is implied, for it must be there for God to bless it. “Thy bread shall be given thee, and thy waters shall be sure." With God at our table, we not only ask a blessing, but we have one. It is not only at the altar but at the table that He blesses us. He serves those well who serve Him well. This table blessing is not of debt but of grace. Indeed, there is a trebled grace; He grants us grace to serve Him, by His grace feeds us with bread, and then in His grace blesses it.

Bumblebee-robot-transformers-movie-wide-hd-wallpaper-for-desktop「我要打發黃蜂飛在你前面,把希未人、迦南人、赫人攆出去,……恐怕地成為荒涼,野地的獸多起來害你。」(出埃及記二十三︰28)

我們且不必管黃蜂是什麼,他們是上帝的軍隊,被差派來叮咬敵軍,使以色列民容易獲勝。我們的上帝以祂的方式,為祂的民在前線爭戰。通常上帝會以出奇不意的方式,使敵軍驚惶失措,招架不住,四散奔逃。

讓我們切莫驚怕,上帝的靈會剛強我們。當我們迎向爭戰衝突時,常會覺得自己孤軍奮鬥,無人可並肩作戰。但你大可放心,上帝會為我們爭戰,祂的黃蜂比起我們武器的威力,可強了好幾倍,那是我們從未想到過的方法,可以用來制勝敵軍,我們只管服從我們的元帥,為了耶和華的名,勇往殺敵,上帝已走在我們前面,為我們舖路。最終我們必要高唱凱歌︰「上帝的右手和全能的膀臂,使我們旗開得勝。」

“And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee"(Exodus 23:28)

What the hornets were we need not consider. They were God’s own army which He sent before His people to sting their enemies and render Israel’s conquest easy. Our God by His own chosen means will fight for His people and gall their foes before they come into the actual battle. Often He confounds the adversaries of truth by methods in which reformers themselves have no hand. The air is full of mysterious influences which harass Israel’s foes. We read in the Apocalypse that “the earth helped the woman."

Let us never fear. The stars in their courses fight against the enemies of our souls. Oftentimes when we march to the conflict we find no host to contend with. “The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace." God’s hornets can do more than our weapons. We could never dream of the victory being won by such means as Jehovah will use. We must obey our marching orders and go forth to the conquest of the nations for Jesus, and we shall find that the LORD has gone before us and prepared the way; so that in the end we will joyfully confess, “His own right hand and his holy arm, have gotten him the victory."

主基督行在祂的百姓當中,要祂的百姓認得祂,且服從祂,因為祂是萬軍之耶和華,也是替天父發言的總司令,我們的責任就是迅速明確地遵行祂的命令,若我們對上帝的命令置之不理,我們將失去上帝的應許!
若完全地順服上帝,這福份將是何等地大!無論是戰時、平時,無論是攻、是守,上帝總是與我們站在同一陣線。為我們祝福的,上帝也祝福他;咒詛我們的,上帝也咒詛他。上帝總是站在祂百姓的立場,全心全意地幫助,這對我們而言,是何等令人感激涕零的保護。若我們確知,我們的難處,就是上帝的難處,我們就無需掛慮憂愁,因為上帝自會處理一切。若耶和華承擔我們一切的重擔、問題,我們大可將仇敵交在上帝的手中,由上帝來解決。
就我們的好處而言,有上帝同在,我們對仇敵何懼之有﹖但為了真理與公義的緣故,我們必須穿起軍裝,走向戰場,在這場神聖之戰,我們是與永生上帝聯手克敵,若專心遵行祂的命令,上帝可以代替我們盡全力迎戰仇敵。的確如此,上帝若幫助我們,誰能抵擋我們呢﹖ 

“But if thou shalt indeed obey His voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries" (Exodus 23:22).

The LORD Christ in the midst of His people is to be acknowledged and obeyed. He is the vice-regent of God and speaks in the Father’s name, and it is ours implicitly and immediately to do as He commands. We shall lose the promise if we disregard the precept.

To full obedience how large the blessing! The LORD enters into a league with His people, offensive and defensive. He will bless those who bless us and curse those who curse us. God will go heart and soul with His people and enter in deepest sympathy into their position. What a protection this affords us! We need not concern ourselves about our adversaries when we are assured that they have become the adversaries of God. If Jehovah has taken up our quarrel, we may leave the foemen in His hands.

So far as our own interest is concerned we have no enemies; but for the cause of truth and righteousness we take up arms and go forth to conflict. In this sacred war we are allied with the eternal God, and if we carefully obey the law of our LORD Jesus, He is engaged to put forth all His power on our behalf. Wherefore we fear no man.
