017 wkg bs mulungu bamboyo

Malinga ndi umboni wa m'Malemba, Mulungu ndi waumulungu mwa anthu atatu osatha, ofanana koma osiyana - Atate, Mwana ndi Mzimu Woyera. Iye ndiye Mulungu woona yekha, wamuyaya, wosasintha, wamphamvuyonse, wodziwa zonse, wopezeka paliponse. Iye ndiye mlengi wa kumwamba ndi dziko lapansi, wosamalira chilengedwe chonse ndi gwero la chipulumutso cha munthu. Ngakhale kuti ndi woposa mphamvu, Mulungu amachita zinthu mwachindunji ndiponso payekha pa anthu. Mulungu ndiye chikondi ndi ubwino wopanda malire (Marko 12,29; 1. Timoteo 1,17; Aefeso 4,6; Mateyu 28,19; 1. Johannes 4,8; 5,20; Tito 2,11; Yohane 16,27; 2. Korinto 13,13; 1. Akorinto 8,4-6 ndi).

«Mulungu Atate ndiye munthu woyamba wa Umulungu, Wopanda Chiyambi, amene Mwana anabadwa kwamuyaya ndi kwa amene Mzimu Woyera umatuluka kwamuyaya kudzera mwa Mwana. Atate, amene analenga zinthu zonse zooneka ndi zosaoneka kudzera mwa Mwana, amatumiza Mwanayo kuti akhale chipulumutso ndipo amapereka mzimu woyera kuti tikhalenso atsopano ndi kuti tilandiridwe monga ana a Mulungu.” ( Yoh. 1,1.14, 18; Aroma 15,6; Akolose 1,15-16; Yohane 3,16; 14,26; 15,26; Aroma 8,14-17; Machitidwe 17,28).

Kodi tinalenga Mulungu kapena Mulungu ndiye anatilenga?

Mulungu sali wachipembedzo, wabwino, "m'modzi wa ife", waku America, capitalist "ndiye mutu wa buku lomwe langofalitsidwa kumene. Limafotokoza zolakwika zokhudza Mulungu.

Ndizosangalatsa kuwunika momwe mapangidwe athu adapangidwira ndi Mulungu kudzera kubanja lathu komanso abwenzi; kudzera m'mabuku ndi zaluso; kudzera pawailesi yakanema komanso media; kudzera mu nyimbo ndi zopeka; kudzera mu zosowa zathu ndi zosowa zathu; ndipo, zachidziwikire, kudzera zokumana nazo zachipembedzo komanso nzeru zapamwamba. Chowonadi ndichakuti Mulungu sali womangika kapena wopangidwa. Mulungu si lingaliro, osati lingaliro losadziwika la malingaliro athu anzeru.

Malinga ndi zimene Baibulo likunena, chilichonse, ngakhale maganizo athu ndi luso lathu lokulitsa malingaliro, zimachokera kwa Mulungu amene sitinamulenge kapena amene makhalidwe ndi mikhalidwe yake sizinapangidwe ndi ife (Akolose. 1,16-17; Ahebri 1,3); mulungu amene ali chabe mulungu. Mulungu alibe chiyambi kapena mapeto.

Pachiyambi panalibe lingaliro laumunthu la Mulungu, koma pachiyambi (chiwerengero chanthawi yochepa chomwe Mulungu amagwiritsira ntchito kumvetsetsa kwathu kochepa) kunali Mulungu (1. Cunt 1,1; Yohane 1,1). Sitinalenge Mulungu, koma Mulungu anatilenga m’chifanizo chake (1. Cunt 1,27). Mulungu ndiye chotero ife tiri. Mulungu Wamuyaya ndiye Mlengi wa zinthu zonse (Machitidwe 17,24-25); Yesaya 40,28, ndi zina zotero) ndipo kupyolera mwa chifuniro chake chokha zinthu zonse zidzakhalapo.

Mabuku ambiri amalosera za momwe Mulungu alili. Mosakayikira tikhoza kupeza mndandanda wa ziganizo ndi maina omwe amafotokoza momwe timaonera Mulungu ndi zomwe amachita. Cholinga cha phunziroli, komabe, ndikuwona momwe Mulungu amafotokozedwera m'malembo ndikukambirana chifukwa chake malongosoledwewa ndiofunikira kwa wokhulupirira.

Baibulo limalongosola Mlengi kukhala wamuyaya, wosawoneka, wamphamvuyonsessend ndi wamphamvuyonse

Mulungu analiko asanalengedwe ( Salmo 90,2:5 ) ndipo “akukhala kosatha” ( Yesaya 7,15). “Palibe amene anaonapo Mulungu” (Yoh 1,18), ndipo iye si thupi, koma “Mulungu ndiye mzimu” ( Yoh 4,24). Iye alibe malire ndi nthawi kapena malo, ndipo palibe chobisika kwa iye (Masalmo 13).9,1-12; 1. Mafumu 8,27, Yeremiya 23,24). Iye “amadziwa zonse” (1. Johannes 3,20).

In 1. Mose 17,1 Mulungu akuuza Abrahamu kuti: “Ine ndine Mulungu Wamphamvu zonse” ndi m’chivumbulutso 4,8 zamoyo zinayi zikulengeza kuti: “Woyera, woyera, woyera, ndiye Mulungu Yehova, Wamphamvuyonse, amene analipo, amene alipo, ndi amene akudza”. “Mawu a Yehova ndi amphamvu, mawu a Yehova ndi aulemerero.” ( Salimo 29,4).

Paulo analangiza Timoteo kuti: “Koma kwa Mulungu, Mfumu yosatha, yosabvunda ndi yosaoneka, ndiye Mulungu yekha, ukhale ulemu ndi chitamando ku nthaŵi zonse. Amene»(1. Timoteo 1,17). Malongosoledwe ofanana a mulunguyu angapezeke m’mabuku achikunja ndi m’miyambo yambiri yosakhala Yachikristu.

Paulo akusonyeza kuti ulamuliro wa Mulungu uyenera kuonekera kwa aliyense poyang’ana zodabwitsa za chilengedwe. “Pakuti,” iye analemba kuti, “chosaoneka cha Mulungu, mphamvu yake yosatha ndi umulungu wake, zaoneka kuchokera ku ntchito zake chiyambire kulengedwa kwa dziko.” 1,20).
Lingaliro la Paulo liri lomvekera bwino lomwe: anthu “amakhala okonda zachabechabe m’malingaliro awo (Aroma 1,21) Ndipo adadzipangira okha zipembedzo ndi mafano. Iye akufotokoza mu Machitidwe 17,22-31 akusonyezanso kuti anthu akhoza kusokonezedwadi za chikhalidwe cha umulungu.

Kodi pali kusiyana pakati pa Mulungu wachikhristu ndi milungu ina? 
M’kaonedwe ka Baibulo, mafano, milungu yakale ya Agiriki, Aroma, Mesopotamiya ndi nthano zina, zinthu zolambiridwa masiku ano ndi zakale, sizili zaumulungu konse chifukwa “Yehova Mulungu wathu yekha ndiye Yehova” ( Deut. 6,4). Palibe wopembedzedwa mwachoonadi koma Mulungu woona (2. Mose 15,11; 1. Mafumu 8,23; Masalimo 86,8; 95,3).

Yesaya akufotokoza kuti milungu ina “ili chabe” ( Yesaya 41,24), ndipo Paulo akutsimikizira kuti “otchedwa milungu” ameneŵa alibe umulungu chifukwa chakuti “palibe Mulungu koma mmodzi”, “Mulungu mmodzi, Atate, amene zinthu zonse zichokera” (1. Akorinto 8,4-6). 'Kodi tilibe atate tonsefe? Kodi si mulungu amene anatilenga? Mneneri Malaki akufunsa mwachipongwe. Onaninso Aefeso 4,6.

Nkofunika kuti wokhulupirira aone ulemerero wa Mulungu ndi kukhala ndi mantha pa Mulungu mmodzi. Komabe, izi sizokwanira zokha. “Taonani, Mulungu ndi wamkulu ndi wosamvetsetseka, palibe amene angadziwe kuchuluka kwa zaka zake” ( Yobu 3 )6,26). Kusiyana kwakukulu pakati pa kulambira Mulungu wa m’Baibulo ndi kulambira milungu imene amati ndi milungu n’njakuti Mulungu wa m’Baibulo amafuna kuti timudziwe bwino, ndipo iyenso amafuna kutidziwa aliyense payekha payekha. Mulungu Atate safuna kugwirizana nafe patali. Iye ali “pafupi ndi ife” osati “Mulungu amene ali kutali” ( Yeremiya 23,23).

Mulungu ndi ndani?

Chifukwa chake Mulungu amene tapangidwa m'chifanizo chake ndi m'modzi. Chimodzi mwazinthu zofunikira pakupangidwa m'chifanizo cha Mulungu ndikotheka kuti tifanane naye. Koma kodi Mulungu ndi wotani? Lemba limakhala ndi malo ambiri pakuwululira kuti Mulungu ndani ndi zomwe ali. Tiyeni tiwone malingaliro ena a Mulungu okhudza Mulungu, ndipo tiwona momwe kumvetsetsa momwe Mulungu alili kumalimbikitsira mikhalidwe yauzimu kuti ikule mwa okhulupirira mu ubale wake ndi anthu ena.

Chochititsa chidwi n’chakuti, Malemba Opatulika samalangiza wokhulupirira kusonyeza chifaniziro cha Mulungu ponena za ukulu, mphamvu zonse, kudziŵa zonse, ndi zina zotero. Mulungu ndi woyera (Chibvumbulutso 6,10; 1. Samuel 2,2; Masalimo 78,4; 99,9; 111,9). Mulungu ndi wolemekezeka mu chiyero chake (2. Mose 15,11). Akatswiri ambiri a maphunziro a zaumulungu amatanthauzira chiyero kukhala mkhalidwe, wopatulidwa kapena wopatulidwa kaamba ka zifuno zaumulungu. Chiyero ndi mndandanda wonse wa makhalidwe amene amafotokoza kuti Mulungu ndi ndani ndiponso amamusiyanitsa ndi milungu yonama.

Ahebri 2,14 limatiuza kuti popanda chiyero “palibe amene adzaona Ambuye”; “...1. Peter 1,15-16; 3. Cunt 11,44). Tiyenera “kulandira nawo chiyero chake” (Aheberi 1).2,10). Mulungu ndi chikondi ndi chifundo (1. Johannes 4,8; Masalimo 112,4; 145,8). Ndime yomwe ili pamwambapa 1. Yohane ananena kuti anthu amene amam’dziŵa Mulungu angadziŵike mwa kudera nkhaŵa kwambiri ena chifukwa chakuti Mulungu ndiye chikondi. Chikondi chinakula mu Umulungu “lisanaikidwe maziko a dziko lapansi” (Yohane 17,24) chifukwa chikondi ndi chikhalidwe cha Mulungu.

Popeza iye achitira chifundo [chifundo], ife tiyenera kuchitirana chifundo wina ndi mnzake.1. Peter 3,8, Zekariya 7,9). Mulungu ndi wachisomo, wachifundo, wokhululuka (1. Peter 2,3; 2. Mose 34,6; Masalimo 86,15; 111,4; 116,5).  

Chisonyezero cha chikondi cha Mulungu ndicho “ubwino wake waukulu” (Cl 3,2). Mulungu ndi wokonzeka “kukhululuka, ndiye wachisomo, wachifundo, woleza mtima ndiponso wachifundo chachikulu.” ( Nehemiya. 9,17). “Koma kwa inu, Yehova Mulungu wathu, muli chifundo ndi chikhululukiro. Pakuti ndife ampatuko.” (Danieli 9,9).

“Mulungu wa chisomo chonse” (1. Peter 5,10) akuyembekezera kuti chisomo chake chibalalike (2. Akorinto 4,15), ndi kuti Akhristu amaonetsa chisomo ndi chikhululukiro chake pochita ndi ena ( Aefeso 4,32). Mulungu ndi wabwino (Luka 18,19; 1 Mbiri 16,34; Masalimo 25,8; 34,8; 86,5; 145,9).

“Mphatso zonse zabwino ndi zangwiro zitsika kuchokera kumwamba, kuchokera kwa Atate wa kuunika.” (Yakobo 1,17).
Kulandira ubwino wa Mulungu ndiko kukonzekera kulapa – “kapena ukupeputsa chuma cha ubwino wake... Kodi sudziwa kuti ubwino wa Mulungu ukutsogolera ku kulapa” ( Aroma 2,4)?

Mulungu amene amatha “kuchita mwamphamvu kuposa chilichonse chimene tingapemphe kapena kumvetsa.” (Aef 3,20), amauza wokhulupirira kuti “achitire anthu onse zabwino”, pakuti aliyense wochita zabwino achokera kwa Mulungu (3 Yohane 11).

Mulungu ali ndi ife (Aroma 8,31)

N’zoona kuti Mulungu ndi woposa chinenero chimene tinganene. “Ukulu wake n’ngwosamvetsetseka” ( Salimo 145,3). Kodi tingatani kuti timudziwe komanso kutengera chitsanzo chake? Kodi tingakwaniritse bwanji chikhumbo chake chokhala oyera, achikondi, achifundo, achisomo, achifundo, okhululukira, ndi abwino?

Mulungu “mwa iye mulibe kusintha, kapena kusandulika kwa kuunika ndi mdima” (Yakobo 1,17) ndi amene khalidwe lake ndi zolinga zake zabwino sizisintha (Mal 3,6), anatitsegulira njira. Iye ndi wathu ndipo amafuna kuti tikhale ana ake (1. Johannes 3,1).

Ahebri 1,3 limatidziŵitsa kuti Yesu, Mwana wobadwa wa Mulungu kuyambira kalekale, ali chithunzithunzi chenicheni cha umunthu wamkati wa Mulungu - “chifanizo chake” (Ahebri 1,3). Ngati tikufuna chithunzi chogwirika cha Atate - ndi Yesu. Iye ndi “chifaniziro cha Mulungu wosaonekayo” (Akolose 1,15).

Kristu anati: “Zonse zapatsidwa kwa Ine ndi Atate wanga; ndipo palibe munthu adziwa Mwana koma Atate; ndipo palibe amene akudziwa Atate koma Mwana ndi amene Mwana afuna kumuululira.”— Mateyu 11,27).

Pomalizassmapeto

Njira yakudziwira Mulungu ndi kudzera mwa mwana wake. Lemba limavumbula momwe Mulungu alili, ndipo izi zimafunikira kwa wokhulupirira chifukwa tidapangidwa m'chifanizo cha Mulungu.
