Chakuhona kukakasana, vamunangwile kuli vausoko jenyi, kuhakilako naIse Lameke, lunga walufwelelo uze asemukile shimbu kanda Alama afwenga. (Talenu muvwimbimbi wakulivanga.) Havatu kana hapwile nawa kaka yenyi Metusela nakakuluka yenyi Yalete, uze afwile omu mwahichile myaka 366 kufuma haze asemukilile Nowa. * (Luka 3:36, 37) Pamo ava malunga namapwevo javo vakiko vanangwile Nowa atachikize omu vatu vaputukile kupwako, nomu ajina Kalunga ngwenyi hamavu hakazale navatu vakwoloka, nakulikanga chamumilemba chize chamulingishile naikiye amone ukalu.

Kukukilikita chamavoko etu mwomwo yamavu aze vangwile kuli Yehova.” Nowa atalililile vyuma vyamwaza mwakalinga Kalunga. Ngana mwaAvele naEnoke afwelelelele muli “muka-tanga” uze mwakachika mutwe walinoka.—Kupu. 3:15.

Kaha nawa ou upolofweto wamuEtene walitombola namujimbu ambulwilenga Enoke uze apolofwetele ngwenyi, Kalunga mwakasopesa vaka-kuhuka.

Kavamuhungumwishile kuli vangelo vaze vavwalile mijimba yautu nakukomwesa vatu vakuhona lufwelelo nauhashi wavo wakulipwila, pamo nakuvakunyula vavalemesa kwijiva nge hitulungako. (Kupu. 6:1-4, 9) Nowa atachikijile nawa ngwenyi vatu vavalwezele vaseme nakuzalisa hamavu. (Kupu. 1:27, 28) Ngocho ashinganyekele ngwenyi chapwile chakuhenga mapwevo kulisavala navangelo. Jino omu vaze mapwevo vasemene vana vakutaluka chikuma, Nowa amwene ngwenyi ashinganyekele mwamuchano. Mukuhita chalwola, Kalunga alwezele Nowa ngwenyi mwaneha livaji hamavu. Nowa afwelelele chuma kana, ngocho etavilile kutunga wato uze wamuyowele natanga yenyi.—Hepe. 11:7.

(Koli. 2, 2:11) Shipilitu kana yeji kuzondolanga vatu vafwile ulyanyi naujila. Kaha nawa yeji kuvalingisanga vafwile kulinga vyuma yafwila mijimba yavo. (Yowa. 1, 2:15, 16) Yeji kuvalingisanga nawa valiule unjiho wakusolola nge likumbi lyalinene lyaKalunga lili hakamwihi. Omu Yesu afwanyishile makumbi etu kumakumbi aNowa, kahanjikile haulyanyi nahaujilako, oloze ahanjikile haponde yatwama hakuzeya kushipilitu.—Tangenu Mateu 24:36-39.

Chakutalilaho, Yehova alwezele vaYuleya ngwenyi: “Tondenunga kuunda changanda yize ngunamitwaleko muufunge.” (Yele. 29:7) Oloze asakilenga nawa vatu valihane kuli ikiye namuchima wosena. (Kulo. 34:14) Chuma muka chakafwile Ndanyele atesemo vyuma vyosenevi vivali? Mangana akufuma kuli Kalunga amukafwile aliluule kuli vaze vapwile nangolo jakuyula. Omu mwahichile makulukaji amyaka nawa, Yesu ahanjikile chishina chochimwe.—Luka 20:25.

 13 Achishinganyekenu havyuma alingile Ndanyele omu vahakileko lushimbi ngwavo, kakwatela kupwa mutu mwalombela kuli mutu wekako shina kuli mwangana kaha hamakumbi 30. (Tangenu Ndanyele 6:7-10.) Nge Ndanyele asakile kachi ambile ngwenyi, ‘Ukalu wauchi makumbi 30 amandende.’ Oloze kasakile elu lushimbi lumuhonese kulinga vyuma alinangwile muVisonekako. Kaha nawa kachi alombelenga mukuswama mangana vahone kumumona, hakuwana nge vatu vamutachikijile ngwavo alombelenga hakumbi hakumbi. Numba tuhu atachikijile ngwenyi kulinga chuma kana nachihaka mwono wenyi muponde, oloze atwalileho kulinga chuma chize amwene ngwenyi chakwoloka.

Lufwelelo lwetu naluzama nge natumona vilinga vyaKalunga hakutalanga vyuma atenga (Talenu palangalafu 17)

17 Yopa nawa atachikijile vilinga vyaKalunga vyavivulu hakumona vyuma atenga. (Yopa 12:7-9, 13) Kufumaho Elihu hamwe kaha naYehova vazachishile vyuma vyakutenga mangana vanukise Yopa ngwavo, mutu keshi kuhasa kulyesekesa  hamwe naKalungako. (Yopa 37:14; 38:1-4) Mazu aKalunga akwachile Yopa kumuchima kaha ambile ngwenyi: “Ngunatachikiza jino ngwami nauhasa kulinga vyuma vyosena, kakweshi vyuma unajinyi kulinga navipwa vyavikalu kuli oveko. . . .

Ambile ngwenyi: “Ou angutengele ami mujimo, keshi ikiye atengele navakikoko numba?” (Yopa 31:13-22) Chapundu vene, Yopa kalivwimbile nakumona vakwavo ulumbi mwomwo yaluheto apwile nalwoko. Muchima wenyi walihandununa navatu valuheto vamukaye.

19 Yopa ahungile kulemesa chamakuli mumuchima wenyi. Atachikijile ngwenyi nge mwazanga chikuma luheto nachisolola nge ali nakukana “Kalunga wamuchano.” (Tangenu Yopa 31:24-28.) Avumbikilenga ulo nakuumona nganomu aumona Yehova. Alishikile lushiko nameso enyi ngwenyi, keshi kutala pwevo weka nakumwivwila uvumbiko.

Uno kushinganyeka haVisoneka kana nachimikafwa ngachilihi musakulenga kanawa vyuma mukuyoya, nakuzachisa Internet, nakusakula masepa vamwaza, nakulihizumuna mujila yamwaza? Jila namukumbulwilamo vihula kana nayisolola nge mwejiva kanawa Yehova chipwe nduma. Hakusaka tupwenga tuvakuzeneka katenga mukaye kano kakuhuka, twatela kunangulanga “uhashi wakukekesa vyuma” mangana tuhandununenga kwoloka nakuhenga, nakuhandununa nawa mangana nauleya.—Hepe. 5:14; Efwe. 5:15.

21. Vyuma muka navitukafwa tutachikize “vyuma vyosena” twatela kulinga mangana tusuulwise Setu wamwilu?

21 Yehova alisolwele kuli Nowa, naNdanyele, naYopa, mwomwo vamutondelenga namuchima wosena. Kaha avakafwile ‘vatachikize vyuma vyosena’ vatelelele kulinga mangana vamwivwise kuwaha.

Echi nachimikafwa mupandame kuli Senu wamwilu, kaha namupwa namangana nakunangakana mukaye kano kakapi.—Vishi. 2:4-7.
