Please 我们来读一下这段圣经节 来
23:27
The Bible is reminding us 圣经提醒就是说 God is the same yesterday, today and forever 神是过去 现在 永远是一样的神 God never changes 神没有改变 How God used His grace to help you in the past 神过去曾经怎么样用恩典帮助你 How God answered your prayers 神过去怎么听你的祷告 He is still helping you by giving you grace 神今天仍然用恩典帮助你 He is still listening to your prayers and my prayers 他仍然今天也会垂听你我的祷告 So don't forget God's deeds 所以不要忘记神的作为 Don't forget God's past grace 不要忘记神过去的恩典 This can help us to delight in the Lord 这可以帮助我们以神为乐 This can help us 这可以帮助我们 To put our focus on God's eternal and unshakable Kingdom 我们可以聚焦在 To put our focus on God's eternal and unshakable Kingdom 神永恒不能震动的国 For God is a supernatural God 因为神是超然的神 He answered your prayers and mine 祂真的过去曾经垂听你我的祷告 He delivered us from our troubles 救我们脱离很多的危难 And He has given us much grace 也施加很多恩典在我们身上 The Bible reminds us to set our minds on those days 圣经提醒我们要追念那样子的日子 To set our minds on those things 要追念那样子的事情 Don't forget the grace that God has given us 不要忘记神在我们身上 Don't forget the grace that God has given us 曾经有的恩典 I think this is the first area in which we can delight in the Lord 这个我认为是第一个 I think this is the first area in which we can delight in the Lord 我们可以以神为乐很重要的地方 The second point I want to mention is 第二个我要提到就是 Learn from Habakkuk to see your circumstances from God's perspective 哈巴谷学习用神的眼光来看处境 Learn from Habakkuk to see your circumstances from God's perspective 看见神所看见的 Habakkuk was a prophet during the southern kingdom of Judah 哈巴谷是南国犹大的先知
24:29
Habakkuk was a prophet during the southern kingdom of Judah 时代的先知 Habakkuk was facing a tremendous crisis 那哈巴谷他面临非常大的危机 He knew the international situation 就是他知道当时候的国际局势 The kingdom of Judah was about to be destroyed 南国就快要被灭了 By the Babylonian empire 因为新的巴比伦帝国 The army of Nebuchadnezzar was formidable 也就是尼布甲尼撒王的军队 The army of Nebuchadnezzar was formidable 非常强大 They had destroyed Israel and were coming to take over Judah 他们灭了北国接着要来灭南国 Habakkuk foresaw that 那哈巴谷先知已经看到 God told him, "Judah will be destroyed" 神跟他说 南国最终会被灭掉 So Habakkuk knew that 所以他知道这样的事情 He was sad 心中也非常的难过 So he knew 所以他知道 There was an economic recession 整个的经济都非常的萧条 There were crises all around 危机四伏 But how could Habakkuk still delight in the Lord? 但是为什么哈巴谷 But how could Habakkuk still delight in the Lord? 仍然能够以神为乐呢 From the Biblical perspective 我从圣经来看 Habakkuk saw something more beautiful 因为哈巴谷看见一个更美的事情 Habakkuk knew Judah would eventually be destroyed 虽然哈巴谷知道 Habakkuk knew Judah would eventually be destroyed by the Neo Babylonian empire 南国犹大国至终会被新巴比伦 By the army led by Nebuchadnezzar 也就是尼布甲尼撒王所带领的军队 By the army led by Nebuchadnezzar 所灭掉 But God showed him something more beautiful in the future 但是神让他看见 But God showed him something more beautiful in the future 未来更美好的事情发生 For this reason 也就是因为这样子 The Kingdom of the Messiah would come 未来弥赛亚国度会来到
25:29
"How do you know that Habakkuk knew that?" 你怎么知道 "How do you know that Habakkuk knew that?" 哈巴谷知道弥赛亚国度会来到呢 Let's read the following Scripture 我们来读下面这段圣经节 Let's read this. Please 我们一起读一下 来 The Chaldeans were people of Babylon 迦勒底人就是巴比伦人 They were the foreigners led by Nebuchadnezzar 也就是后来尼布甲尼撒王 They were the foreigners led by Nebuchadnezzar 所带领的那些的外族人 Although they invaded Israel 虽然他们入侵了以色列 They invaded Judah 入侵了南国 But the prophet already foresaw 但是先知已经看见 One day the Messiah will come 有一天弥赛亚会来到 People will be saved by faith 人们会因信得生 Habakkuk knew that God had prepared the Salvation for Israel and all nations 这个世界他知道神已经预备好救恩 Habakkuk knew that God had prepared the Salvation for Israel and all nations 要来救赎以色列 要来救赎万民 He foresaw this 他事先看到这样的事情 He foresaw the coming of the Messiah's Kingdom 他就看到弥赛亚国度的来临 And he was filled with joy 他心中就充满喜乐 He knew one day 他知道有一天 By faith, people will have eternal life 人们会因为信而得着永恒的生命 And he foresaw another thing 而且他也看到有一件事情 God's glory will be fulfilled in everything 神的荣耀 未来将充满万有 Habakkuk also saw 哈巴谷也看到 One day, God's glory will cover the earth 有一天神的荣耀要充满在全地当中
26:30
We often use this Scripture from the Book of Habakkuk at Banner Church 哈巴谷先知事先讲的这段圣经节 We often use this Scripture from the Book of Habakkuk at Banner Church 在旌旗教会我们常常引用 Let's read it.

27:31
"Everything is so bad" 各方面都很糟糕 "How can I delight in the Lord?" 我怎么可能以神为乐 "How can I know what God sees for the future?" 而且我怎么知道 "How can I know what God sees for the future?" 神怎么看见未来的事情 "I'm not a prophet" 我又不是先知 "How do I know what God will do in the future?" 我怎么可能知道神未来要做什么 "It's impossible for me to see what God sees" 我不可能看见神所看见的 I want to encourage everyone 今天我要鼓励大家 Perhaps you feel it is difficult 也许你觉得很困难 But I believe 但是以神为乐我相信 "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible" 在人不能 在神凡事都能 If you are willing to learn this and pray to God 如果你愿意学习这件事情跟神祷告 "Lord, help me to learn to delight in You" 主啊 帮助我 让我学习以祢为乐 Then I believe God will show you much 那我相信神会让你看到很多 Because while you are in this difficulty or in this pandemic 因为你这个苦难 Because while you are in this difficulty or in this pandemic 或在这个疫情之下 God might show you what He sees 神可能会让你看到 God might show you what He sees 很多神所看见的 You will gladly respond to what He calls you to do 你会喜乐的去回应神要你做的事情 In my illness and pain 在我这个病痛里面 In the midst of my inconvenience 在我这个不方便的当中 What I see is 我看见的是 Although I am very uncomfortable 虽然对我来讲很不舒服 It is also very uncomfortable for Banner Church 对旌旗教会 It is also very uncomfortable for Banner Church 也是一个很不舒服的一件事情 But I see that God wants us to run more courageously toward our God given vision 但是我看见神好像要我们 But I see that God wants us to run more courageously toward our God given vision 更勇敢的奔向神给旌旗教会的异象 Through this difficult period 神要透过这些不容易的过程
28:32
God wants His Kingdom to come onto this earth powerfully 神要让祂的国度 God wants His Kingdom to come onto this earth powerfully 更强而有力的降临在这地上 As it is in heaven 如同在天上 I feel the Holy Spirit telling me 我觉得圣灵跟我说 Through these troubles 神要借着这些的苦难 God will help our church planting movement to expand more powerfully 要让我们的植堂运动 God will help our church planting movement to expand more powerfully 更强而有力的展开 I believe God's glory will fill the earth as waters cover the sea 我相信神要让祂的荣耀 I believe God's glory will fill the earth as waters cover the sea 充满遍地像水充满洋海一样 I think these are the greatest words of God in the Bible 我觉得在圣经里面 I think these are the greatest words of God in the Bible 神讲过一句最豪气的话 This is my own experience 这是我自己的体验 The following Scripture 在下面这段圣经节 Let's read this together.
