每日金句

“昔在、今在的主 神,全能者啊,我们感谢你!因你执掌大权作王了。”

—启 11:17

 "We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign."

—Revelation 11:17

启示录中约翰的这个异象,带给我们关乎救恩的好消息中最重要的一项宣告;它告诉我们,世人的救主耶稣不单“要作王,直到永永远远”,祂现在就已经是正在执权的万王之王了!

这个重要的信息赋予我们权柄,无论在什么地方,都去作神忠心的见证人。有了这个消息,我们便能够向其他人确实地保证,他们可以在基督里得到新的生命,而永生不单是将来的事——永生从今天就已经开始了。(参约 3:36;5:24;10:28)

如果你熟悉韩德尔的弥赛亚神曲,你可能了解乐曲中那一段感人的“哈利路亚大合唱”,就是出自这段启示录经文。当韩德尔根据第七号响起时的宣告:“世上的国,成了我主和主基督的国;祂要作王,直到永永远远。”(参启11:15)来谱写“哈利路亚大合唱”时,他说他因惊叹和敬畏哭了起来。他说:“就像看到天开了,我正站在神自己的宝座前那样。”

这段经文邀请我们来到这个有神同在的大能之地,并且知道我们现在就立刻可以得到新的生命。主神全能者已来执掌“大权”,开始作王,赐人以盼望和医治!

This vision of John in Revelation gives us one of the most important announcements that make up the good-news message of our salvation. It tells us not only that Jesus, the Savior of the world, "will reign forever and ever" but also that he is already reigning as the King of kings now!

This important message empowers us to be God’s faithful witnesses wherever we are. With this news we can assure others that, in Christ, their lives can be made new and that eternal life isn’t just something in the future—it begins now (John 3:36; 5:24; 10:28).

If you are familiar with the music of Handel’s Messiah, you might recognize that some of these words in Revelation are part of a rousing section known as the "Hallelujah Chorus." When he composed the "Hallelujah Chorus"—based on the seventh trumpet announcement: "The kingdom of this world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign for ever and ever"—George Handel said he wept in wonder and awe. "It was as though I saw heaven open and I stood before the very throne of God," he said.

This passage invites us to that powerful place of being in the presence of God and knowing that he makes our new life possible right now. The Lord God Almighty has come in his "great power" to begin his reign of hope and healing!

祷告 · Prayer

主啊,感谢祢在权能和恩典中降临,来医治我们的创伤,赐我们新的生命。阿们。
