Buu Ogboshinii lɛ He Kɛtsɔ Oyiŋ ni Oookpɛ yɛ Nilee Mli lɛ Nɔ

“Nyɛhia efɔŋ kwraa; nyɛkpɛtɛa ekpakpa he.”ROM. 12:9.

1, 2. (a) Mɛni ha okpɛ oyiŋ akɛ obaasɔmɔ Nyɔŋmɔ? (b) Mɛɛ saji wɔbaanyɛ wɔbi yɛ wɔmumɔŋ gboshinii lɛ he?

MƐI akpekpei abɔ ekpɛ yiŋ ni nilee yɔɔ mli akɛ amɛbaasɔmɔ Yehowa Nyɔŋmɔ, ní amɛnyiɛ Yesu Kristo nanemaahei lɛ asɛɛ kpaakpa.

MƐNI JI WƆGBOSHINII LƐ?

3. Mɛɛ gboshinii mɛɔ (a) mɛi ni afɔ amɛ mu lɛ kɛ (b) “tooi krokomɛi” lɛ?

(1 Pet. 1:3, 4) Dani mɛi nɛɛ anine baashɛ nakai gboshinii lɛ nɔ lɛ, esa akɛ ‘ajɛ ŋwɛi afɔ amɛ.’ (Yoh. 3:1-3) Mɛɛ gboshinii Yesu “tooi krokomɛi” akpekpei abɔ ni fata mɛi ni afɔ amɛ mu lɛ ahe kɛshiɛɔ Nyɔŋmɔ Maŋtsɛyeli lɛ he sanekpakpa  lɛ hu baaná? (Yoh. 10:16) Tooi krokomɛi lɛ baaná gboshinii ni ŋmɛɛ Adam kɛ Hawa yɛ esha ni amɛfee lɛ hewɔ lɛ—naanɔ wala yɛ paradeiso shikpɔŋ ni nɔnaa, gbele, loo ŋkɔmɔyeli ko bɛ jɛi lɛ nɔ. (Kpoj. 21:1-4) No hewɔ lɛ, Yesu nyɛ ewo eshafeelɔ ni asɛŋ lɛ afata ehe lɛ shi akɛ: “Lɛɛlɛŋ miikɛɛ bo ŋmɛnɛ akɛ, okɛ mi aaahi Paradeiso.”—Luka 23:43, NW.

4. Mɛɛ jɔɔmɔi wɔnáa amrɔ nɛɛ?

4 Amrɔ nɛɛ po lɛ, wɔnáa wɔgboshinii lɛ mli jɔɔmɔi komɛi. Akɛni wɔyɛ hemɔkɛyeli yɛ “kpɔmɔ ní yɔɔ Kristo Yesu mli lɛ” mli hewɔ lɛ, wɔyɛ toiŋjɔlɛ, ni wekukpaa kpakpa yɛ wɔ kɛ Nyɔŋmɔ teŋ. (Rom. 3:23-25) Wɔnuɔ shiwoi ni yɔɔ Nyɔŋmɔ Wiemɔ lɛ mli lɛ ashishi jogbaŋŋ. Kɛfata he lɛ, suɔmɔ ni wɔnyɛmimɛi ni yɔɔ je lɛŋ fɛɛ lɛ jieɔ lɛ kpo lɛ haa wɔnáa miishɛɛ waa.

5. Mɛni Satan bɔɔ mɔdɛŋ akɛ ebaaha Nyɔŋmɔ webii lɛ afee, ni mɛni baaye abua wɔ ni wɔdamɔ eŋaatsɔi lɛ anaa?

5 Bɔni afee ni wɔgboshinii lɛ akaŋmɛɛ wɔ lɛ, esa akɛ wɔkwɛ jogbaŋŋ yɛ Satan ŋaatsɔi lɛ ahe. Satan bɔɔ mɔdɛŋ be fɛɛ be akɛ ebaaha Nyɔŋmɔ webii lɛ afee nibii ni baaha amɛgboshinii lɛ aŋmɛɛ amɛ.

Kɛ́ wɔbaaya nɔ ‘wɔdamɔ Abonsam ŋaatsɔi lɛ anaa’ lɛ, esa akɛ be fɛɛ be lɛ wɔbu wɔgboshinii lɛ akɛ nɔ ko ni jara wa waa. (Efe. 6:11) Wɔbaanyɛ wɔkase nɔ ko ni he hiaa waa kɛjɛ bɔ ni Isak kromɔ bi Esau bu egboshinii lɛ eha lɛ mli.

6, 7. Namɔ ji Esau, ni kulɛ mɛɛ gboshinii kã ehiɛ?

6 Aaafee afii 4,000 ni eho nɛ lɛ, Isak kɛ eŋa Rebeka fɔ́ haaji, Esau kɛ Yakob.

Shiwoo nɛɛ ha ana akɛ Mesia lɛ, ni ji ‘seshi’ lɛ diɛŋtsɛ ni awie ehe yɛ 1 Mose 3:15 lɛ baajɛ Abraham seshibii lɛ ateŋ. Akɛni Esau ji Isak kromɔbi hewɔ lɛ, ená hegbɛ lɛ akɛ enine ashɛ nakai shiwoo lɛ nɔ. Enɛ ji gboshinii ni nɔ bɛ ni kulɛ Esau nine baashɛ nɔ! Shi ani ehiɛ sɔ?

8 Gbi ko beni Esau jɛ ŋa nɔ eba lɛ, ebana ni Yakob ‘miihoo niyenii ko.’ Esau kɛɛ akɛ: “Miikpao fai, ha mi nɛkɛ nii tsuru nɛɛ eko maye, shi etɔ mi!” Shi Yakob to he eha lɛ akɛ: “Hɔɔmɔ okromɔ bi gbɛnaa lɛ oha mi dã.” Mɛni Esau fee? Naakpɛɛ sane ji akɛ, ekɛɛ akɛ: “Mɛni kromɔbi gbɛnaa nɛɛ baafee aha mi?” Hɛɛ, Esau hala niyenii moŋ fe ekromɔ bi gbɛnaa lɛ! Bɔni afee ni kromɔbi gbɛnaa lɛ hɔɔmɔ lɛ afee mla naa nɔ lɛ, Yakob kɛɛ lɛ akɛ: “Kã mi nɔ kitã dã!” Esau fiteee be kwraa, kɛkɛ ni ehɔɔ ekromɔ bi gbɛnaa lɛ. Kɛkɛ ni “Yakob  ha Esau aboloo kɛ abɔbɔi ní ehoo lɛ eko; ni eye ni enu nɔ ko eshwie nɔ, ni ete shi, ni eyiŋ etee. Nɛkɛ Esau gbe ekromɔ bi gbɛnaa lɛ he guɔ.”—1 Mose 25:29-34.

9 Afii komɛi asɛɛ beni Isak na akɛ ebaagbo lɛ, Rebeka kwɛ koni Yakob nine ashɛ kromɔ bi gbɛnaa ni Esau hɔɔ lɛ nɔ. Sɛɛ mli beni Esau na akɛ eye kwashiai asane lɛ, ekpa Isak fai akɛ: “Mi hu, jɔɔmɔ mi eko, mitsɛ! . . . Ani oshwɛɛɛ jɔɔmɔ lɛ eko ohaaa mi?” Beni Isak ha ele akɛ enyɛŋ etsake jɔɔmɔ ni ekɛha Yakob lɛ hiɛ lɛ, “Esau wó egbee ni efó.”—1 Mose 27:30-38.

10. Te Yehowa na Esau kɛ Yakob tɛŋŋ, ni mɛni hewɔ?

10 Mɛni enɛ tsɔɔ wɔ yɛ Esau he? Eha ana akɛ, eheloo akɔnɔi lɛ ahe yɛ sɛɛnamɔ kɛha lɛ kwraa fe jɔɔmɔi ni ebaaná wɔsɛɛ kɛjɛ egboshinii lɛ mli lɛ. Esau hiɛ esɔɔɔ ekromɔ bi gbɛnaa lɛ, ni eyɛ faŋŋ akɛ esumɔɔɔ Nyɔŋmɔ. Kɛfata he lɛ, Esau susuuu bɔ ni yiŋ ni ekpɛ lɛ baasa eshwiei ahe eha lɛ he. Nɔ ni tamɔɔɔ nakai lɛ, Yakob hiɛ sɔ egboshinii lɛ waa. Akɛ nɔkwɛmɔnɔ lɛ, Yakob bo ŋaa ni efɔlɔi wo lɛ yɛ yoo ni esa akɛ ekɛhi shi lɛ he lɛ toi. (1 Mose 27:46–28:3) Akɛni Yakob to etsui shi ni ekɛ nibii komɛi shã afɔle hewɔ lɛ, sɛɛ mli lɛ ebatsɔ Mesia lɛ blematsɛ. Te Nyɔŋmɔ na Esau kɛ Yakob tɛŋŋ? Yehowa tsɔ gbalɔ Maleaki nɔ ewie akɛ: “Misumɔ Yakob, shi minyɛ̃ Esau.”—Mal. 1:2, 3.

11. (a) Akɛ Kristofoi lɛ, mɛni wɔbaanyɛ wɔkase kɛjɛ Esau nɔkwɛmɔnɔ lɛ mli? (b) Mɛni hewɔ Paulo kɛ Esau nifeemɔ lɛ to ajwamaŋbɔɔ he lɛ?

11 Ani Kristofoi baanyɛ akase nɔ ko kɛjɛ nɔ ni Biblia lɛ wieɔ yɛ Esau he lɛ mli ŋmɛnɛ? Hɛɛ. Bɔfo Paulo bɔ enanemɛi héyelilɔi lɛ kɔkɔ akɛ amɛkwɛ jogbaŋŋ “koni mɔ ko akafee ehe ajwamaŋbɔlɔ, loo yakagbɔmɔ tamɔ Esau ni hɔɔ ekromɔ bi gbɛnaa lɛ ehé shi kome niyenii lɛ.” (Heb. 12:16) Nakai kɔkɔbɔɔ lɛ kɔɔ Kristofoi ahe lolo.
