基督的靈-第二篇-聖靈的浸-第12~16段

作者的禱告

當受頌讚的主耶穌!我用我的全心來敬拜祢,祢已被神高舉到寶座上,要用聖靈給我們施浸。哦!求祢自己向我啟示祢在靈浸中的榮耀,好讓我能夠確切知道–我能從祢期望領受何等福分。

我稱頌祢,因我從祢身上看見了應當如何預備,才能在祂豐滿的度量中來領受聖靈。原來,當祢在拿撒勒生活、預備將來盡職的期間,那靈就已經常在祢裏面。但當祢進而放下自己,親自有份於待祢拯救之罪人的水浸,如此盡了全般的義以後,祢又一次從父領受了祂聖靈全新的流入。靈浸乃是父愛祢的印記,它帶來了父內住於祢的啟示,也帶給祢作成祂工作的能力。而現在,祢這有那靈降臨並停留的一位,要將父曾為祢成就的浸,現今也作到我們身上。

我的聖主,我稱頌祢,因為聖靈現在也是在我裏面。然而,哦,我切切懇求祢,求祢還要賜給我那豐富、滿溢的度量,就是祢曾經應許過的。求祢讓聖靈豐豐滿滿地、永不間斷地向我啟示,給我看見祢的同在在我心裏,是如同在天上寶座上一樣的榮耀和偉大。哦,我的主耶穌啊!浸我、滿我,以祢聖靈!阿們。

末了的話

1.一切神聖的賜予和運行,都是在祂無窮生命的大能裏。因此每一天,我們都能在這一句話的有福亮光中仰望耶穌:「祂用聖靈施浸。」祂用血潔淨,並用聖靈施浸,為著任何新的需要皆是如此。

2.「羔羊耶穌將罪除去,受膏者耶穌用那靈施浸。」讓我們在信心中持守施浸者傳揚的這雙重真理,使二者緊密聯繫而不分開。唯有當祂流出寶血之後,祂才能領受並流出那靈。而當十字架被人傳講,那靈就在那裏運行作工。唯有當我信靠寶血潔淨我一切的罪,並且帶著蒙血灑過的良心在我神面前行事為人,我才能放膽宣告、要求聖靈的膏抹。血和油並行作工,二者我都需要。而這二者都在那一位耶穌、寶座上的羔羊裏面,唯在祂裏,我才擁有這一切。

Blessed Lord Jesus! with my whole heart I worship Thee, as exalted on the Throne to baptize with the Holy Ghost. Oh! reveal Thyself to me in this Thy glory, that I may rightly know what I may expect from Thee.

I bless Thee that in Thyself I have seen what the preparation is for receiving the Holy Spirit in His fulness. During Thy life of preparation in Nazareth for Thy work, O my Lord, the Spirit was always in Thee. And yet when Thou hadst surrendered Thyself to fulfil all righteousness, and to enter into fellowship with the sinners Thou camest to save, in partaking of their baptism, Thou didst receive from the Father a new inflowing of His Holy Spirit. It was to Thee the seal of His love, the revelation of His indwelling, the power for His service. And now Thou, on whom we see the Spirit descend and abide, doest for us what the Father did for Thee.

My Holy Lord I bless Thee that the Holy Spirit is in me too. But, oh I beseech Thee, give me yet the full, the overflowing measure Thou hast promised. Let Him be to me the full unceasing revelation of Thy presence in my heart, as glorious and as mighty as on the Throne of Heaven. O my Lord Jesus! baptize me, fill me with the Holy Spirit. Amen.

1. All Divine giving and working is in the power of an endless life. And so we can look up to Jesus each day in the blessed light of this word: ‘He baptizeth with the Holy Spirit,’ He cleanses with the blood and baptizes with the Spirit, according to each new need.

2. Let us keep inseparably connected in our faith the double truth the Baptist preached: Jesus the Lamb taking away sin, Jesus the Anointed baptizing with the Spirit. It was only in virtue of His shedding His blood that He received the Spirit to shed forth. It is as the cross is preached that the Spirit works. It is as I believe in the precious blood, that cleanses from all sin, and walk before my God with a conscience sprinkled with the blood, that I may claim the anointing. The blood and the oil go together, I need both. I have them both in the one Jesus, the Lamb on the Throne.
