基督的靈-第十五篇-聖靈的澆灌-第01段

讀經:「五旬節那天到了,…他們就都被聖靈充溢,並且按著那靈所賜的發表,用別種不同的語言說起話來。」(使徒行傳2章1~4節)

基督的工作,是在聖靈澆灌下來時才達到最高潮。始於伯利恆奧秘的道成肉身,成於加略山上偉大救贖,在復活中藉永遠生命的大能被標出為基督-神的兒子,又在升天時進入祂的榮耀,基督這一切令人珍賞、稱揚的經歷,都還只是祂工作的準備階段;它們的目標與頂峰乃是為了帶來聖靈的降臨。神將「五旬節」放在最後一步,它乃是基督徒筵席中最豐盛的一部,唯有在「五旬節」中,基督其他部分的工作才能夠完完全全實現並成全。然而,遺憾的是,召會非常難得體認到這一點,召會沒有看見父和子最高的榮耀正是那「五旬節」的榮耀,因此,聖靈至今還不能按照祂所能達到的度量,在召會中大大啟示並榮耀神的兒子。現在,請讓我們一同來看,看我們能否真正領悟五旬節的意義。

In the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the work of Christ culminates. The adorable mystery of the Incarnation in Bethlehem, the great Redemption accomplished on Calvary, the revelation of Christ as the Son of God in the power of the Eternal Life by the Resurrection, His entrance into glory in the Ascension–these are all preliminary stages;their goal and their crown was the coming down of the Holy Spirit. As Pentecost is the last, it is the greatest of the Christian feasts; in it the others find their realization and their fulfillment. It is because the Church has hardly acknowledged this, and has not seen that the glory of Pentecost is the highest glory of the Father and the Son,that the Holy Spirit has not yet been able to reveal and glorify the Son in her as He fain would. Let us see if we can realize what Pentecost means.
