Kwaad Oorsien om te Vergewe

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)24-04-20

As jy sê dat jy geen vyande het nie, stel ek voor dat jy meer noukeurig ondersoek instel. Natuurlik het elke Christen ‘n vyand in Satan. Die apostel Petrus waarsku ons: “Wees nugter en waaksaam, want julle teëstander, die duiwel, loop rond soos ‘n brullende leeu en soek wie hy kan verslind” (1 Petrus 5:8).

为要饶恕而不顾创伤

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)24-04-20

若你说没有仇敌, 我就提议你去细仔自省. 当然, 每个信徒都面对仇敌,即撒但。彼得使徒说: 「务要谨慎,要警醒。因为你们的仇敌魔鬼,如同咆哮的狮子,走来走去,寻找可吞吃的人。」 (彼前5:8).

主阐明我们不要害怕恶魔. 我们的主赐给了我们胜过撒但和牠邪灵权势的能力和权柄: 「我已经给你们权柄可以践踏蛇和蝎子,又胜过仇敌一切的能力,绝没有甚麽能害你们。」(路10:19). 主声明说衪在与撒但的战役中得胜了.

根据希腊文,头一处经文里的「吞吃」是指「企图把你一口吞噬」。彼得论到任何一件事 —挣扎,试炼或试探— 会吞噬你,令你既忧鬱,害怕或沮丧. 这是指与仇人(即与我们共处或同工的血肉对头)之间的试炼。

 你也许能见證说你因主而大大得胜。你成功的抵挡一切试探,邪情恶慾,物质主义和爱世界的心. 但同时, 你也许因与这种人的挣扎而被吞噬:因嫉妒和苦毒而兴起攻击你;歪曲你的行动和动机; 诬衊你的名誉; 处处反对你; 试图阻挠神在你生命中的旨意。

如果这是你的写照— 你在忍受仇人所带来的试炼— 这人的攻击也许夺去了你的平安。你读到主说要彼此相爱,也许就会抗议说:「主啊, 我尽心服事你,但不要期望我会搁下这创伤. 我无法办到。」主说:「要爱你们的仇敌,为那迫害你们的祷告。」(太5:44).

為要饒恕而不顧創傷

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)24-04-20

若你說沒有仇敵, 我就提議你去細仔自省. 當然, 每個信徒都面對仇敵,即撒但。彼得使徒說: 「務要謹慎,要警醒。因為你們的仇敵魔鬼,如同咆哮的獅子,走來走去,尋找可吞吃的人。」 (彼前5:8).

主闡明我們不要害怕惡魔. 我們的主賜給了我們勝過撒但和牠邪靈權勢的能力和權柄: 「我已經給你們權柄可以踐踏蛇和蠍子,又勝過仇敵一切的能力,絕沒有甚麼能害你們。」(路10:19). 主聲明說衪在與撒但的戰役中得勝了.

根據希臘文,頭一處經文裡的「吞吃」是指「企圖把你一口吞噬」。彼得論到任何一件事 —掙扎,試煉或試探— 會吞噬你,令你既憂鬱,害怕或沮喪. 這是指與仇人(即與我們共處或同工的血肉對頭)之間的試煉。

 你也許能見證說你因主而大大得勝。你成功的抵擋一切試探,邪情惡慾,物質主義和愛世界的心. 但同時, 你也許因與這種人的掙扎而被吞噬:因嫉妒和苦毒而興起攻擊你;歪曲你的行動和動機; 誣衊你的名譽; 處處反對你; 試圖阻撓神在你生命中的旨意。

如果這是你的寫照— 你在忍受仇人所帶來的試煉— 這人的攻擊也許奪去了你的平安。你讀到主說要彼此相愛,也許就會抗議說:「主啊, 我盡心服事你,但不要期望我會擱下這創傷. 我無法辦到。」主說:「要愛你們的仇敵,為那迫害你們的禱告。」(太5:44).

Pasando por Alto Heridas para Perdonar

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)24-04-20

Si tú afirmas que no tienes enemigos, te sugiero que eches un vistazo más de cerca. Por supuesto, cada cristiano se enfrenta a un enemigo en Satanás. El apóstol Pedro nos advierte: “Sed sobrios, y velad; porque vuestro adversario el diablo, como león rugiente, anda alrededor buscando a quien devorar” (1 Pedro 5:8).

Overlooking Hurts to Forgive

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)24-04-20

If you claim to have no enemies, I suggest you take a closer look. Of course, every Christian faces an enemy in Satan. The apostle Peter warns us: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

As One of the ‘Invisibles’ in Church

February 28, 2020

When we don’t fit very well into God’s family, what should we do? If we meet someone who isn’t the type we’re used to, how should we respond?

If you’re not a person who is checking off the appropriate life-stage boxes at the “right” time, you’ve probably come across some people in church who make it weird in a hurry. Let me replay a quick anagram of the most common conversations I’ve had in church.

Become the kind of person who has great relationships isn’t an easy path, but we’ve been called to do it by our Lord and Savior.

Near the end of Frodo’s journey with the ring, he and Sam stop on a mountainside. Both are already exhausted from their trek into Mordor, and yet so much of the road is still before them.

What to Do With Toxic People (As a Christian)

Everyone knows, or has known, a poisonous person who threw a monkey-wrench into their whole life, so how do we deal with these people when they run into us?

In the third Harry Potter book, the titular character is on a train with his two friends, headed to their school. They notice frost beginning to accumulate on the windows in their car, and the lights go out.
