1-3. Kwavela njani ukungezwani hlangana kwaka-Eyodiya noSuntirhe, begodu imiraro enjengale singayibalekela njani? (Qala isithombe esisekuthomeni.)

IINKHONZI zakaJehova ziyalihlonipha iBhayibheli elicwengileko. Njengombana sibabantu abanesono, sinande sifumana izeluleko ezivela eBhayibhelini. Sisabela njani lokha naselulekwako? Akhesicoce ngeembonelo zabodadwethu ababili abamaKrestu wakade, u-Eyodiya noSuntirhe. Khekwaba nokungazwani hlangana nabodadwethu abazesiwekwaba. Kwavela miphi imiraro? IBhayibheli ayisitjeli. Kodwana, ukwenzela bona sizwisise, khesenze isibonelo, sicoce ngalokho okungenzeka kwaba mraro hlangana nabo.

2 Mhlamunye ngelinye ilanga, u-Eyodiya wenza umnyanya kwakhe, wamema abazalwane nabodade bona bazokuthabela ubungani. Nokho, uSuntirhe bekangakamenywa, wezwa ngobumnandi ababanabo abodade nabazalwane ebegade bamenyiwe. Kwamphatha kumbi khulu lokho uSuntirhe, mhlamunye wabe wathi: ‘Angikholwa bona u-Eyodiya akakangimemi! Bengicabanga ukuthi mina naye sibangani abakhulu.’ Yeke uSuntirhe wathoma ukumqala ngelinye ilihlo u-Eyodiya bewamsola nokumsola, naye  wenza newakhe umnyanya, wamema boke abazalwane nabodade ebegade bamenywe ngu-Eyodiya, kodwana wangamemi u-Eyodiya! Umraro ebewuhlangana nabodadwethu ababilaba, bewungalilimaza ibandla, uphazamise nokuthula kwalo. IBhayibheli ayitjho ukuthi kwaphetha ngani, kodwana abodadwethu ababilaba basabela kuhle eselulekweni sethando sakampostoli uPowula.—Flp. 4:2, 3.

3 Imiraro enjengale isesekhona nanamhlanjesi emabandleni wabantu bakaJehova, begodu ingabanga ukungazwani. Nanyana kunjalo, imiraro le ingararululwa namkha ibalekelwe lokha nasisebenzisa iseluleko esifumaneka eliZwini lakaZimu, iBhayibheli. Nasilihloniphako iliZwi lakaJehova, sizokuphila ngeenqophiso zalo.—Rhu. 27:11.

INCWADI KAZIMU NAMAZIZO WABANTU

4, 5. IBhayibheli likhipha siphi iseluleko malungana nokulawula amazizwethu?

4 Akusibulula ukulawula amazizwethu lokha nasizwa ngasuthi asikaphathwa kuhle. Kungaba buhlungu khulu ukuphathwa kumbi ngebanga lemvelaphi yethu, ibala lethu, namkha ukuhluka okuthileko emzimbenethu. Ayisaphathwa yokuzwiswa ubuhlungu mKrestu esikunye naye! Kghani iliZwi lakaZimu linaso na iseluleko malungana nendaba ebangelwa kukuba nesono kwabantu?

5 Kusukela ekuthomeni kokudalwa kwabantu, uJehova bekasolo aqale indlela abantu abaziphatha ngayo. Uyayibona indlela abantu abenza ngayo nabazizwa ngayo. Imicabango elawulwa yindlela abantu abazizwa ngayo, ingarholela bona benze begodu bakhulume izinto abazozisola ngazo kamva. Yeke, kuqakatheke khulu ukusebenzisa iseluleko seBhayibheli bona silawule amazizwethu begodu sibalekele nokukhubeka msinya! (Funda IzAga 16:32; UMtjhumayeli 7:9.) Lokhu kusenza sibone itlhogeko yokuthi soke silwisane nokukhubeka msinyana, kunalokho, silibalelane. UJehova noJesu bakuqala njengokuqakatheke khulu ukulibalelana. (Mat. 6:14, 15) Nawucabangako, yini okufuze uyilwele? Kulibalela abanye namkha kulawula amazizwakho?

6. Kubayini kufuze sibalekele ukuba nelaka?

6 Abantu abahlulwa kulawula amazizwabo kanengi bahlala banelaka. Okubuhlungu kukuthi abanye abantu abazitjhidezi hlanu kwabo. Umuntu ohlala anelaka angafaka ummoya omumbi ebandleni. Angalinga ukufihla ilaka lakhelo namkha ihloyo anayo, kodwana ubumbi bakhe ‘buzakwembulwa ebandleni.’ (IzA. 26:24-26) Abadala bangamsiza umuntu onjalo, abone ukuthi ilaka, ihloyo namavunda zizinto ezinganayo indawo ehlanganweni kaZimu. Incwadi kaZimu ikubeka epepeneneni lokhu. (Lev. 19:17, 18; Rom. 3:11-18) Uyavumelana nayo?

UNGAYILIBALI INDLELA ESIRHOLWA NGAYO

(Mat. 6:33) Ligandelela  nokuqakatheka komsebenzi nelungelo esinalo lokobana sitjhumayele umuzi nomuzi, tjhatjhalazi nokutjhumayela okungakahlelwa. (Mat. 28:19, 20; IzE. 5:42; 17:17; 20:20) IBhayibheli inqophisa abadala abamaKrestu bona babulunge ihlanganwakhe ihlale ihlanzekile. (1 Kor. 5:1-5, 13; 1 Thim. 5:19-21) UJehova uthi boke abasehlanganwenakhe kufuze bahlanzeke ekuziphatheni nekumkhulekeleni.—2 Kor. 7:1.

9. Ngiyiphi indlela esetjenziswako esisiza sizwisise iBhayibheli?

9 Abanye abantu bacabanga ukuthi bangalizwisisa babodwa iBhayibheli ngaphandle kwesizo labanye. Kodwana uJesu wayalela ‘inceku ethembekileko’ bona kube ngiyo esinikela iinqophiso. Kusukela ngo 1919, uJesu Krestu bekasolo asebenzisa inceku ethembekileko bona isize abalandeli bakhe bazwisise iBhayibheli, balalele nelikutjhoko. Ngokulandela iinqophiso ezifumaneka eBhayibhelini, sithuthukisa ukuthula, ihlanzeko nobunye ebandleni. Omunye nomunye kithi wenza kuhle ngokuzibuza umbuzo naku, ‘Ngiyayihlonipha na indlela uJesu ayisebenzisako bona anqophise abantu namhlanjesi?’

IKARANA KAJEHOVA IYAGIJIMA!

10. Ingcenye yehlangano kaJehova esezulwini ihlathululwa njani encwadini kaHezekiya?

10 IBhayibheli lisifundisa nangehlangano kaZimu esezulwini. Ngokwesibonelo, umphorofidi uHezekiya wabona umbono wengcenye yehlangano kaZimu yezulwini ejamelwe yikarana. (Hez. 1:4-28) UJehova nguye umkhweli wekarana, begodu ummoyakhe ocwengileko uyinqophisa nanyana kukuphi la afuna itjhinge khona. Yeke, ingcenye esezulwini, ithonya indlela ingcenye yehlangano esephasini okufanele isebenze ngayo. Mbala, ikarana beyisolo igijima! Khewucabange ngamatjhuguluko amanengi enzekileko hlangana neminyaka elitjhumi edlulileko begodu ukhumbule nokuthi koke lokho kungebanga lokuthi uJehova nguye obangele amatjhuguluko lawo. Njengombana uKrestu neengelosi ezicwengileko sele kuseduze babhubhise iphasi elimbeli, ikarana kaJehova igijima ngokukhulu ukurhaba yenzela bona kuphazinyuliswe ibizo lakhe elicwengileko!

14 Ukubandula umntwana. Ababelethi batjengisa ukuthi bathembela kuJehova lokha nabasebenzisa iBhayibheli ukubandula umntwana. Ababelethi abasaba uZimu abathonywa masiko wendawo nembono yabantu ngendlela yokukhulisa umntwana. Ummoya wephaseli awunandawo endlini yomKrestu. (Efe. 2:2) Ubaba omKrestu obhajadisiweko, angekhe athi, ‘Enarhenekhethu, abafazi ngibo abafundisa abantwana.’ IBhayibheli linqophile endabeni le lokha nalithi: “Bobaba,. . .

Ukubona ukuthi kuqakatheke kangangani ukwenza lokhu, akhesicoce ngendaba ethinta ababelethi abanengi. Abanye ababelethi babawa iinhlobo ukuthi zithlogomele abantwababo bese bona bayokusebenza kenye inarha. Siyavuma, siqunto somuntu, kodwana kufuze sikhumbule ukuthi omunye nomunye uzoziphendulela kuZimu ngeenqunto azenzako. (Funda yebeRoma 14:12.) Kghani kungaba kuhlakanipha ukwenza iinqunto malungana nokufuze kwenziwe mndeni ngaphandle kokucabangisisa ngalokho okutjhiwo iBhayibheli? Awa akusikho ukuhlakanipha nakancani!  Siyalitlhoga isizo lakaBabethu osezulwini ngombana akusikho okwethu ukunqophisa amagadangwethu.—Jor. 10:23.

Ngesikhathi umntwana lo sele azokubelethwa, umma lo wathoma ukufunda iBhayibheli noFakazi kaJehova. Ekufundeni kwakhe, wathuthuka kuhle bewafunda nokuthi kumthwalwakhe awunikelwe nguZimu ukukhulisa umntwanakhe amfundise nokulotjha uJehova. (Rhu. 127:3; IzA. 22:6) Umma osesemutjha lo wathululela ihliziywakhe kuJehova njengombana imitlolo isikhuthaza bona senze njalo. (Rhu. 62:7, 8) Wacocisana nodade afunda naye iBhayibheli, wamtjela okusehliziywenakhe, wacoca godu nabanye ngebandleni. Nanyana iinhlobo nabangani bezimgandelela bona athumele umntwana ekhabomkhulu, waqina ngombana bekazi ukuthi lokho akukafaneli. Indodakhe yamkara indlela ibandla elatlhogomela ngayo umkakhe nomntwanabo bewabawa isifundo seBhayibheli wathoma nokuya esifundweni nomma wakwakhe nomntwanabo.

Lokhu singakwenza ngokusebenzisa ividiyo ethi Kwenzekani EWolweni LomBuso? nencwajana ethi, Bobani Abenza Intando kaJehova Namhlanjesi? Nasiqeda ukufunda icwadi ethi Okufundiswa YiBhayibheli nomfundi othuthukako, kwaphakamiswa bona sifunde incwadi ethi, Hlalani Ethandweni LakaZimungitjho nanyana sele umuntu esifunda naye abhajadisiwe. Ihlangano yenza isiphakamiswesi, ukwenzela bona abafundi abasese batjha, ‘baqine ekukholweni.’ (Kol. 2:7) Uyazilalela na iinqophiso ezivela ehlanganweni kaJehova?

18, 19. Ngiziphi iinzathu esinazo zokuthokoza uJehova?

18 Sineenzathu ezinengi zokobana sithokoze uJehova! Simkoloda ukuphila kwethu, ngombana ngaphandle kwakhe, bengekhe sabakhona. (IzE. 17:27, 28) Usinikele isipho esiligugu—incwadakhe, iBhayibheli. Ngelikhulu ithabo sisamukela njengomlayezo ovela kuZimu, njengombana namaKrestu wekadeni weThesalonika asamukela njengelizwi lakaZimu.—1 Thes. 2:13.

19 Ngokusebenzisa iBhayibheli, sizitjhideza kuJehova begodu naye uzokutjhidela kithi. (Jak. 4:8) UBabethu osezulwini usinikele ilungelo elihle lokuba yingcenye yehlanganwakhe. Maye sisithabela kangangani isibusisweso! Umrhubi naye wakgwatheka wabewabhina wathi: “Thokozani [uJehova] ngombana ulungile — ukwethembeka kwakhe kujame isiphelani.” (Rhu. 136:1) Encwadini yeRhubo 136 sifumana amezwi athi, “ukwethembeka kwakhe kujame isiphelani” iinkhathi ezimatjhumi amabili nesithandathu. Ngokuthembela kuJehova nehlanganwenakhe, sizokuthabela ukuba liqiniso kwamezwi athinta ihliziyo la ngombana sizokuphila isiphelani!
