MATEO 25:31-46

  • YESU ABASHIMIKILA ICILANGILILO CA MPAANGA NE MBUSHI

Ilyo baali pa Lupili lwa Miolife, Yesu ashimikiile abatumwa icilangililo ca banacisungu ne ca matalanti. Mashiwi nshi alekelesheko ukusosa ilyo aleasuka icipusho bamwipwishe pa cishibilo ca kubapo kwakwe na pa mpela ya calo? Abebele icilangililo ca kulekelesha icalelanda pa mpaanga ne mbushi.

Yesu abalilepo ukulanda ifyo cikaba, atile: “Ilyo Umwana wa muntu akesa no bucindami bwakwe, na bamalaika bonse pamo nankwe, e lyo akekala pa cipuna cakwe ica bufumu kabili ica bukata.” (Mateo 25:31) Yesu alibalondolwelele bwino bwino ukuti eo ici cilangililo calelandapo. Ilingi line aleyiita ukuti “Umwana wa muntu.”—Mateo 8:20; 9:6; 20:18, 28.

Ni lilali ici cilangililo cikafikilishiwa? Cikafikilishiwa ilyo Yesu “akesa no bucindami bwakwe” pamo na bamalaika no kwikala “pa cipuna cakwe ica bufumu kabili ica bukata.” Kale alilandilepo pa ‘Mwana wa muntu uwaleisa pa makumbi ya mu muulu ali na maka no bukata ubukalamba’ pamo na bamalaika bakwe. Ni lilali ifi fikacitika? Ni “pa numa [fye] ya bucushi.” (Mateo 24:29-31; Marko 13:26, 27; Luka 21:27) Kanshi ici cilangililo cikafikilishiwa ku ntanshi ilyo Yesu akesa no bucindami bwakwe. Lyena finshi akacita?

Yesu alondolwele ukuti: “Ilyo Umwana wa muntu akesa . . . , inko shonse shikalonganikwa pa ntanshi yakwe, kabili akapaatukanya abantu, filya kacema apaatukanya impaanga ku mbushi. Kabili akabika impaanga ku kulyo, ne mbushi ku kuso.”—Mateo 25:31-33.

Ilyo alelanda pa mpaanga isho akabika ku kulyo, Yesu atile: “E lyo imfumu ikeba aba ku kulyo kwa iko aiti, ‘Iseni, mwe bapaalwa na Tata, ingileni mu bufumu ubo bamuteyanishishe ukufuma pa kutendeka kwa calo.’” (Mateo 25:34) Mulandu nshi impaanga bakashipaalila?

Imfumu yalondolwele ukuti: “Nali ne nsala na imwe mwalimpeele ifya kulya; nali ne cilaka na imwe mwalimpeele amenshi. Nali umweni na imwe mwalimpokelele bwino; nshakwete ifya kufwala na imwe mwalimpeele ifya kufwala. Nalilwele na imwe mwalintenseshe. Nali mu cifungo na imwe mwalishile ku kumona.” Ilyo ishi mpaanga, e kuti “abalungama,” shaipwishe inshila shacitilemo ifi fintu ifisuma, Imfumu ya-aswike ati: “Apo mwacitile ifi kuli umo pali aba bamunyinane abacepesha, ninshi mwacitiile ine.” (Mateo 25:35, 36, 40, 46) Tabacita ifi fintu ifisuma ku muulu, pantu kulya takwaba abalwele nelyo abomfwe nsala. Kanshi bafwile bacitile ifi fintu kuli bamunyina ba kwa Kristu ilyo baali pa calo.

Inga pa mbushi isho bakabika ku kuso, bushe Yesu alandilepo shani? Atile: “E lyo [Imfumu] nomba ikeba aba ku kuso kwa iko aiti, ‘Fumeni apa, mwe batiipwa mwe, kabiyeni mu mulilo wa muyayaya uo bapekanishisha Satana Kaseebanya na bamalaika bakwe. Pantu nali ne nsala, lelo tamwampeele ifya kulya nangu fimo, kabili nali ne cilaka, lelo tamwampeele amenshi. Nali umweni, lelo tamwampokelele bwino; nshakwete ifya kufwala, na imwe tamwampeele ifya kufwala; nalilwele kabili nali mu cifungo, lelo tamwansakamene.’” (Mateo 25:41-43) Ico abantu ababa nge mbushi babapingwilile muli uyu musango, ni co tabaali ne cikuuku kuli bamunyina ba kwa Kristu ilyo baali pa calo.

Abatumwa balisambilile ukuti ifikafuma muli ubu bupingushi ubukabako ku ntanshi, fikatwalilila ukubako umuyayaya. Yesu abebele ukuti: “E lyo [Imfumu] ikabaasuka aiti, ‘Ndemweba icine cine nati, Apo fye tamwacitile ifi kuli umo pali aba abacepesha, tamwacitiile ine.’ Kabili aba bakonaulwa umuyayaya, lelo abalungama bakaba no mweo wa muyayaya.”—Mateo 25:45, 46.

Ifyo Yesu ayaswike icipusho ico abatumwa bamwipwishe filasambilisha abasambi bakwe amasambililo ayengi, ayabafwa ukuceceeta amatontonkanyo ne micitile yabo.
