基督的靈-第一篇-區別「一個新靈」與「神的靈」-第01段

讀經:「我要賜給你們一個新心,將一個新靈放在你們裏面。…我又要將我的靈放在你們裏面。…」(以西結書36章26~27節)

神用兩種不同的方式,來向人啟示祂自己。較早就有的方式帶給我們應許和準備性工作,新的方式則帶給我們應驗和真產業。神的靈擔負了雙重的工作,將這兩種方式的長處調和在一起。例如在舊約時代,神的靈是降臨在人身上,那從上頭和身外降臨的靈,在特定的時機,採取特別的途徑,向著人的內心運行作工。而後在新約時代,聖靈則進入了一班人裏面,並且內住在他們裏面,從人裏面向外或向上運行作工。先前,我們經歷那靈是神那位全能獨一聖者的靈;後來,我們更經歷那靈是耶穌基督之父的靈

「A new heart will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you. And I will put my Spirit within you.」(Ezekiel 36:26~27.)

GOD has revealed Himself in two great dispensations. In the Old we have the, time of promise and preparation, in the New that of fulfillment and possession. In harmony with the difference of the two dispensations, there is a two fold working of God’s Spirit. In the Old Testament we have the Spirit of God coming upon men, and working on them in special times and ways, working from above and without, inwards. In the New we have the Holy Spirit entering them and dwelling within them, working from within, outwards and upwards. In the former we have the Spirit of God as the Almighty and Holy One; in the latter we have the Spirit of the Father of Jesus Christ.
