灵修 0213 扫兴者 PARTY CRASHER

扫兴者

「当时,忽有人的指头显出,在……粉牆上写字。」 但5:5

PARTY CRASHER

Suddenly the fingers of a human hand appeared and wrote on the plaster of the wall. Daniel 5:5

 

 

富贵名流们哄然大笑,巴比伦的新国王的确懂得如何欢宴。最滑稽的一幕是他在嘲笑某个被征服的国家及其宗教,一个名为「自有永有」卻无影无蹤的神——多可笑!那些愚蠢的犹太人怎麼会敬拜这樣一个神?狂欢者们尽情享受他们的淫宴,从「自有永有」神的金杯中大口饮酒,称讚他们淫邪和功利的神。

The rich and famous roared with laughter. This new king in Babylon really knew how to throw a party. The funniest part came when he mocked a conquered country and its religion. An invisible God named I am—what a joke! How could those foolish Jews ever worship such a God? The party animals enjoyed their orgy, guzzled wine from I am's golden goblets, and praised their Gods of sex and success.

 

突然,笑声停止了,「自有永有」败了他们的兴,祂只不过让一只手出现,写下四个字而已。但是这就足以吓得国王脸色苍白,浑身发抖。

这几个字是甚麼意思?沒有人知道。最后,他们把但以理这一个忠心敬拜「自有永有」神的信徒召来。多年以前这个犹太老人曾经是尼布甲尼撒的谋士,但是在伯沙撒王执政期间,但以理被闲置一边,这回,轮到伯沙撒王被永远闲置了。

Suddenly the laughter died. I am crashed the party. He didn't do much, really. A hand appeared and wrote just four words. But that was enough to leave the king pale and trembling with terror.

What did the writing mean? Nobody knew. Finally they brought in a diehard worshiper of I am named Daniel. Years ago this old Jew had been an advisor for Nebuchadnezzar, but Daniel had been sidelined during Belshazzar's administration. Now King Belshazzar was about to be sidelined—permanently.

 

当伯沙撒嘲笑神时,他的欢宴变成了丧礼。多年之后,当教会的人以不洁的方式领圣餐,许多人患病,有的死去(哥林多前书11:30)。如果我们玷污神圣之物,就是在自招惩罰,这对於恶者是一个严厉的警告。但是如果你敬拜伟大的「自有永有」,不愿任何人嘲笑祂,这对於你就是极大的鼓励

When Belshazzar mocked God, his feast became a funeral. Many years later, when church people handled holy communion in an unholy way, many got sick and some died (1 Corinthians 11:30). If we profane sacred things, we invite judgment. This is a stern warning to the wicked. But it is strong encouragement if you worship the great I am and want all mockery of him to end.

 

祷告

「神啊,敌人辱罵要到几时呢?……神自古以来作我的王,在地上施行拯救……神啊,求祢站起来,为自己申诉。」为了祢的荣耀,阿们。

PRAYER

“How long will the enemy mock you, O God? You . . . are my king from of old; you bring salvation upon the earth. . . . Rise up, O God, and defend your cause." For your glory, Amen.
