Let Us Acknowledge God’s Heaven Rules to Avoid Our Humiliating Fate 讓我們承認神天上掌權,避免自己受辱的命運“(Daniel 但以理書 4:1-3, 26-27)

King Nebuchadnezzar, To the nations and peoples of every language, who live in all the earth: May you prosper greatly! It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that the Most High God has performed for me. How great are his signs, how mighty his wonders! His kingdom is an eternal kingdom; his dominion endures from generation to generation. … your kingdom will be restored to you when you acknowledge that Heaven rules. Therefore, Your Majesty, be pleased to accept my advice: renounce your sins by doing what is right, and your wickedness by being kind to the oppressed. It may be that then your prosperity will continue.

尼布甲尼撒王向住在全地的各國、各族和說各種語言的人宣告說:“願你們大享平安!我樂意把至高的神向我所行的神蹟奇事宣揚出來。他的神蹟多麼偉大,他的奇事多麼有力;他的國是永遠的國,他的統治直到萬代!… 等到你承認上天的至高者是掌權的,你的國就必再歸給你。因此,王啊!請你接納我的勸告,施行公義,斷絕罪過,憐憫受欺壓者,斷絕罪孽,你的平安或者可以延長。

This unique chapter is the testimony of the Gentile king Nebuchadnezzar and how God changed his heart. He was not only counselled to stop sinning but also to practise righteousness and generosity. He could have avoided his humiliating fate if he genuinely humbled himself. He is a good example of a witness (one who relates what he has seen and experienced) recognizing that God’s kingdom was far greater and His dominion was completely unique because it is an everlasting kingdom!


Prayer: Sovereign God, it is good to declare what you have done for us. Satan has a huge interest in keeping us unnaturally silent about the signs and wonders that you, the Most High God, have worked for us. May we determine to avoid our own humiliating fate by following the counselling of the Holy Spirit to stop sinning and practise righteousness and generosity declaring the glory of your eternal kingdom. Amen.

禱告: 至高無上的神啊,去宣告你已為我們所作的事是美好的。撒旦有著莫大的興趣,在你至高的神曾為我們所作的神蹟奇事上,要我們保持強制地沉默。願我們定意跟從聖靈的輔導,要停止犯罪,而且也要行公義和慷慨施捨,宣告你永恆國度的榮耀,來避免自己受辱的命運。阿們。
