马太福音24:32-35 我的话却不能废去

32“你们可以从无花果树学个比方:当树枝发嫩长叶的时候,你们就知道夏天近了。33这样,你们看见这一切的事,也该知道人子近了,正在门口了。34我实在告诉你们:这世代还没有过去,这些事都要成就。35天地要废去,我的话却不能废去。

耶稣说我们可以明白即将到来的审判的预兆,就像我们可以明白自然的预兆一样。他在这里提到了无花果树。如果他是对我们说的话,那么他可能会说,“当树的叶子掉落的时候,你们就知道冬天近了。”

耶稣在经文里所说的是两个审判的日子。第一个审判发生的时候,是罗马士兵包围耶路撒冷并且毁灭了这城和城里的所有居民。第二个审判是在末日再次来临的时候。我们应当明白这些预兆,当那天来临的时候我们应当做好准备。

然后他做出了一个美好的应许,“天地要废去,我的话却不能废去”;他所设立的每一个应许都会实现,很多应许已经实现了,包括这句经文里的应许。圣经仍然是世界上每年最畅销的书,这一点难道不能告诉这个世界关于圣经的一些事实吗?圣经没有废去,无论这个世界和撒旦多么努力的尝试,他们无法让神的话语静默。

这意味着你可以依靠神的话语,你可以相信神在圣经里对你的每一个应许。你的罪被赦免了,你会从死里复活,神要擦去你眼里的一切眼泪,万事互相效力是为了你的益处,耶稣的话语永远不会废去。

祷告:主耶稣啊,你的话语是我脚前的灯路上的光,对我的灵魂极其重要,就像是水和食物对我的身体一样重要,离了你的话语我就不能存活。求你让我永远不要忽视你的话语,怀疑你的话语,不传讲你的话语。荣耀归给你,奉你的名,阿们。

Matthew 24:32-35:  “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it  is near, right at the door. 34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

        Jesus said that we can read the signs of the impending judgment just as we an read the signs of nature.  He mentioned the fig tree. If he had been talking to us, he might have said, “You know the winter is coming when the trees lose their leaves.” 

He was talking about both judgment days. The first would take place when the Romans surrounded Jerusalem and then destroyed the city with all of its inhabitants.  The second is his coming on the last day. We should read the signs. We should be ready when that day comes.

Then he makes a wonderful promise.  “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” Every promise that he ever made will be fulfilled. Many of them already have, including this promise. The Bible is still the best selling book in the world every single year. Shouldn’t that tell the world something about the Bible?  It hasn’t passed away. No matter how hard the world and Satan has tried, the have not silenced God’s Word.

Which means you can count on God’s Word. You can put your faith in every promise God makes to you in the Bible. Your sins are forgiven. You will rise again. He will  wipe away every tear from your eyes. All things will work out for your good.  Jesus’ words will never pass away.  

Prayer:  Lord Jesus, your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. It is to my soul water water and bread are for my body. I cannot live without.  I pray that I will never neglect it or doubt it or stop proclaiming it, to your glory and in your name.   Amen.
