Imiphumela Yokutjhumayela—“Amasimu Sele Alungele Ukuvunwa”

OKUDENJWA SISAHLUKWESI

UJehova uyandisile imbewu yeqiniso lomBuso

1, 2. (a) Bararwe yini kangaka abafundi bakaJesu? (b) UJesu ukhuluma ngomhlobo bani wokuvuna?

ABAFUNDI baqalene ngemehlweni, njengombana uJesu athi kibo: “Qalani mazombe, amasimu sele alungele ukuvunwa.” Bathi nabaphosa amehlo nca ngehlangothini lalapho isandla sakhe esikhombe khona, bangayiboni into akhuluma ngayo ngombana emasimini bekuhlaza ikoroyi esasanda ukumila. Kungenzeka bazibuza bona uJesu ukhuluma ngani. Phela ‘bekusasele iinyanga ngaphambi kwesivuno.’—Jwa. 4:35.

2 Kodwana la uJesu bekangakhulumi ngesivuno samambala. Kunalokho, ithubeli walisebenzisela ukufundisa abalandeli bakhe iimfundo ezimbili eziqakathekileko malungana nesivuno esingokomoya—okusivuno sabantu. Ngiziphi-ke iimfundwezo? Akhesiyidembe ngamananeko wakhona indaba le, khona sizozibona.

Isimemo Sokuthatha Amagadango Nesithembiso Sethabo

3. (a) Khuyini okwenza uJesu wathi: “Amasimu [“amhlophe,” NW] sele alungele ukuvunwa”? (Qala umtlolo ophasi.) (b) UJesu wayikhanyisa njani indabakhe le?

3 Ngesikhathi uJesu akhuluma nabafundi bakhe ngekupheleni komnyaka wama-30 emihleni leyo, bebahlanu kwedorobho leSamariya, iSikhari. Kwathi abafundi bakhe nabangena edorobhenelo, uJesu wasala emthonjeni, okukulaphoke acoca khona nomunye umfazi ngeqiniso leBhayibheli, umfazi loyo walibamba zisuka, wakubona nokuqakatheka kweemfundiswezo. Abafundi nababuyela kuJesu, umfazi lo warhabela eSikhari wayokutjela abomakhelwana bakhe ngazo zoke izinto ezikarisako azizwileko. Ebekakutjho kwabenza bavusa iindlebe, begodu inengi labo lagijimela emthonjeni lifuna ukuyokuzwa uJesu. Ngesikhatheso uJesu uthe nakathi mehlo suka, ngaphetjheya kwamasimu wabona iwomakazi lamaSamariya liza, wathi: “Qalani mazombe, amasimu [“amhlophe,” NW] sele alungele ukuvunwa.” * Wathi nasekahlathulula indaba yokuthi amasimu akhuluma ngawo bekungasi ngewamambala, kodwana ngangokomoya, wathi: “Ovunako . . . ubuthelela iinthelo zokuphila okungapheliko.”—Jwa. 4:5-30, 36.

4. (a) Ngiziphi iimfundo ezimbili zokuvuna ezafundiswa nguJesu? (b) Sizokudemba miphi imibuzo?

4 Ngiziphi-ke iimfundo ezimbili ezimalungana nokuvuna okungokomoya uJesu ebekakhuluma ngazo? Sokuthoma ngesokuthi, umsebenzi lo urhabile. Nekazakuthi “amasimu sele  alungele ukuvunwa” bekakhuthaza abafundi bakhe bona bathathe amagadango. Nasekabethelela isikhonkhwani sokurhaba kwendaba le kubafundi bakhe, uJesu wangezelela nangokuthi: “Ovunako sele amukeliswa umvuzo.” Phela njengombana isivuno besesithomile—besesingasekho isikhathi sokuriyada! Sesibili isifundo ngesokuthi, abasebenzi bathabile. UJesu wathi, “otjalileko novunako bathabe boke.” (Jwa. 4:35b, 36) Njengombana kwamthabisa noJesu ukubona “amaSamariya amanengi . . . akholwa nguye,” nabafundi bakhe nabo bazokuthaba babhembese njengombana bazinikele ngokusemandlenabo emsebenzini lo wokuvuna. (Jwa. 4:39-42) Isifundo semihleni yakade le siqakatheke ngokukhethekileko nakithi, ngombana sikufanekisela kuhle okwenzeka emsebenzini omkhulu wokuvuna ongokomoya, owenzeka namhlanjesi. Uthome nini-ke umsebenzi lo esikhathini sanamhlanjesi? Bobani abanesandla kiwo? Imiphumela yona ibe yini?

IKosethu Iwudosa Phambili Umsebenzi Omkhulu Kunayo Yoke Wokuvuna Okhewabakhona

5. Ngubani odosa phambili emsebenzini wokuvuna, begodu okwabonwa nguJwanisi kutjengisa njani bona umsebenzi lo urhabile?

5 Embonweni owaboniswa umpostoli uJwanisi, uJehova uyaveza ukuthi umbeke njani uJesu bona adose phambili emsebenzini wephasi loke wokuvunwa kwabantu. (Funda isAmbulo 14:14-16.) Embonweni lo, uJesu uvezwe njengothwele isihlohlo aphethe nesegere. ‘Isihlohlo segolide esisehloko [kaJesu]’ sitjho isikhundla sakhe sokubusa njengeKosi. ‘Isegere ebukhali ayiphethe ngesandla,’ imveza njengolungele ukuvuna. UJehova wakukhuluma ngengilozi ukuthi ‘isivuno sephasi sesivuthiwe,’—okugandelela ukurhaba komsebenzi lo. Kuyatjho-ke bona “isikhathi sokuvuna sifikile”—asisekho sokubamba la, ulise! Ngokuvumelana nesinqophiso sakaZimu sokuthi “khupha isegere yakho,” uJesu uyayirhwatjhula avune iphasi—okutjho ukuthi abantu abasephasini bayavunwa. Umbono ovusa amadlharuma lo nawo uyasikhumbuza bona “amasimu sele alungele ukuvunwa.” Yeke, umbono lo uyasitjengisa na ukuthi wathoma nini umsebenzi wokuvuna iphasi lo? Iye, kunjalo!

6. (a) Wathoma nini ‘umsebenzi wokuvuna’? (b) Ephasina, umsebenzi okungiwongiwo ‘wokuvuna,’ wathoma nini? Hlathulula.

6 Njengombana umbono kaJwanisi okusAmbulo isahluko 14 uveza uJesu njengoMvuni othwele isihlohlo (evesini 14), kuyatjho ukuthi besekabekwe njengeKosi ngo-1914. (Dan. 7:13, 14) Ngemva kwesikhatjhana kwenzeke lokho, uJesu utjelwa bona athome ukuvuna (evesini 15). Izenzakalo ezinjengalezi ezingehla sizibona nemfanekisweni kaJesu wokuvuna ikoroyi nakathi: “Isivuno kuphela kwesikhathi [“isiphelo sephasi,” NW].” Lokho-ke, kutjho ukuthi isikhathi sokuvuna nesesiphelo sephasi, zithome kanyekanye ngo-1914. Kuthe ngemva kwesikhatjhana ukuvuna kuthomile, kwakhani kuthoma ukuvuna okungikhongikho. (Mat. 13:30, 39) Nasideda isinyava kancani, sibuyele ekuthomeni, singakghona ukubona ukuthi isivuno sathoma ngemva kweminyaka embalwa uJesu athome ukubusa njengeKosi. Phakathi  nesikhatheso, uJesu wathoma ngokuhlanza abazesiweko bakhe, kusukela ngo-1914 bekwaba ngekuthomeni kwaka-1919. (Mal. 3:1-3; 1 Pit. 4:17) Bese ngo-1919 kwathoma “ukuvunwa kwephasi.” UJesu akhange asamorosa nesikhathi, khonokho wakhetha inceku ethembekileko nehlakaniphileko bona isize abazalwana bakulemuke ukurhaba komsebenzi wokutjhumayela. Khewucabange ngokwenzeka.

7. (a) Khuyini okwasiza abazalwana balemuka ukurhaba komsebenzi wokutjhumayela? (b) Abazalwana bakhuthazwa bona benzeni?

7 NgoJulayi 1920, isiThala sathi: “Ngokuhlolisisa imiTlolo, sekuyakhanya bona isondo liphathiswe ilungelo elikhulu lokuphadlhalaja umlayezo wombuso.” Ngokwesibonelo, amezwi ka-Isaya asiphorofido alemukisa abazalwana bona iindaba zomBuso kufuze zitjhunyayelwe ephasini loke. (Isa. 49:6; 52:7; 61:1-3) Ukuthi umsebenzi loyo bewuzokwenziwa njani, bebangazi, kodwana bebanethemba lokuthi uJehova uzobasiza. (Funda u-Isaya 59:1.) Umphumela walokhu wabaphandlulula abazalwana, babona ukuthi umsebenzi lo urhabe kangangani, kangangobana bakhuthazeka nokuthi bawuthuthukisele phambili. Basabela njani-ke abazalwana?

8. Ngiziphi izinto ezimbili malungana nomsebenzi wokutjhumayela ezalenyukwa bazalwana ngo-1921?

8 IsiThala sangoDisemba 1921, sona sathi: “Kube mnyaka omuhle kunayo yoke; begodu iwomakazi labantu liwuzwile umlayezo weqiniso phakathi nomnyaka ka-1921, kunangeminyaka eyadlulako.” Umagazini lo wanaba ngokuthi: “Usesemkhulu umsebenzi. . . . Yeke, asiwenzeni ngehliziyo yoke.” Khewutjheje indlela abazalwana abakubona ngayo ukuqakatheka kwamaphuzu amabili la womsebenzi wokutjhumayela uJesu awugandelela kubapostoli bakhe nakathi: Umsebenzi urhabile, nabasebenzi bathabile.

9. (a) Ngo-1954, sathini isiThala ngomsebenzi wokuvuna, begodu kubayini satjho njalo? (b) Ingangani ituthuko eseyenziwe batjhumayeli phakathi neminyaka ema-50 le egadungileko? (Qala itjhadi elithi “ Ituthuko Yephasi Loke.”)

9 Phakathi nabo-1930, ngemva kokuthi abazalwana balemuke bona isiqubuthu esikhulu sezinye izimvu sizowamukela umlayezo womBuso, umsebenzi wokutjhumayela wabhebhedlha ukuya phambili. (Isa. 55:5; Jwa. 10:16; IsAm. 7:9) Waba yini umphumela? Inani lebebatjhumayela umlayezo womBuso ngo-1934 lakhula kusukela ku-41 000, layokufika ku-500 000  ngo-1953! IsiThala sakaDisemba 1, 1954, besiqinisile nasizayisonga ngokuthi: “Mumoya kaJehova namandla weliZwi lakhe afeze umsebenzi omkhulu kangaka wokuvuna ephasini loke.” *Zak. 4:6.

Imiphumela Yesivuno Ivezwa Ngokucacileko

10, 11. Emfanekisweni wembewu yemastadi, icaciswa njani ituthuko?

10 Emifanekiswenakhe emalungana nomBuso, uJesu wayibeka ngokukhanyako imiphumela yomsebenzi wokuvuna owenzeka namhlanjesi. Akhesikhulume ngomfanekiso wembewu yemastadi newesibiliso. Sizokudzimelela khulu ekutheni izaliseke njani esikhathini sethu.

11 Umfanekiso wembewu yemastadi. Indoda itjala imbewu yemastadi ekhula ibe mumuthi omkhulu ohlalwa naziinyoni. (Funda uMatewu 13:31, 32.) Emfanekisweni lo, khuyini okuphawulekako ngokukhula kwembewu le? (1) Ikhula ngendlela ebabazekako. Khewucabange nje, ‘imbewu encancani kunazo zoke’ iba mumuthi “onamagatja amakhulu.” (Mar. 4:31, 32, NW) (2) Ikhula ngokuqinisekileko. ‘[Imbewu le] nasele itjelwe, iyakhula.’ UJesu akathi “kungenzeka ikhule.” Awa, kodwana uthi: ‘Iyakhula.’ Ikhula umtjhawutjhile. (3) Umuthi okhulako lo uyazikara neemvakatjhi bewuziphe nendawo yokuhlala. ‘Iinyoni zomkayi zikhosela emthuzinawo.’ Izinto ezintathwezi zisebenza njani ekuvuneni okungokomoya okwenzeka namhlanjesi?

12. Umfanekiso wembewu lo, usebenza njani ekuvuneni kwanamhlanjesi? (Qala netjhadi elithi “ Ukwanda Kweemfundo ZeBhayibheli.”)

12 (1) Malungana nokukhula: Umfanekiso lo uveza ukukhula komlayezo womBuso nebandla lobuKrestu. Kusukela ngo-1919, iinsebenzi ezikhuthelekwezo bezisolo zibuthelwa ebandleni lobuKrestu ebeselivuselelwe. Ngesikhatheso bebambalwa abasebenzi, kodwana kwaya nokuya banda. Ekhabolakhona, nokwanda kwabo kuyababazeka kusukela ngekuthomeni kweminyaka yabo-1900, bekube namhlanjesi. (Isa. 60:22) (2) Isiqinisekiso: Ukukhula kwebandla lobuKrestu bekusolo kuthuwelela. Kungakhathaliseki ukuthi amanaba kaZimu lawo ayisahlela ngesikhali esinamandla kangangani imbewu encancani le, kodwana yona beyisolo ikhula—isunduza nanyana yini eqabe indlela. (Isa. 54:17) (3) Indawo yokuhlala: “Iinyoni zomkayi” ezihlala emthini lo, zifanekisela iingidigidi zabantu abaneenhliziyo ezilungileko abavela eenarheni ezibalelwa ema-240, abamukele umlayezo womBuso ngokuhlanganyela ebandleni lobuKrestu. (Hez. 17:23) Abantwabo bathola ifundiso yeliZwi lakaZimu, baqabuleke bebavikeleke.—Isa. 32:1, 2; 54:13.

Umfanekiso wembewu yemastadi uveza ukuthi labo abasebandleni lobuKrestu banayo indawo yokuhlala nevikeleko (Qala iingaba 11, 12)

13. Umfanekiso wesibiliso uyicacisa njani ituthuko?

13 Umfanekiso wesibiliso. Ngemva kobana umfazi afake isibiliso eflowurwini, siyikhukhumalisa yoke ihlama. (Funda uMatewu 13:33.) Emfanekisweni lo, khuyini okuphawulekako ngokukhula? Akhesibone izinto ezimbi. (1) Ukukhula kubangela itjhuguluko. Isibiliso sirhatjeka bekube kulapho “ihlama ikhukhumala khona.” (2) Ukukhula kwayo, kukhukhumala. Isibiliswesi sikhukhumalisa ‘iflowuru enengi’—okutjho ukuthi siyikhukhumalisa yoke ihlama. Izinto ezimbilezi zisebenza njani ekuvuneni okungokomoya okwenzeka namhlanjesi?

14. Umfanekiso wesibiliso lo usebenza njani esivunweni sanamhlanjesi?

 14 (1) Malungana netjhuguluko: Isibiliso sifanekisela umlayezo womBuso, bese iflowuru enengi ifanekisele abantu. Njengombana isibiliswesi sibangela itjhuguluko eflowurwini nasele kuhlanganiswe ndawonye, kunjalo nangomlayezo womBuso, ubangela itjhuguluko eenhliziyweni zabantu ngemva kobana bawamukele. (Rom. 12:2) (2) Ukukhukhumala: Ukurhatjheka kwesibiliso kufanekisela ukurhagala komlayezo womBuso. Isibiliswesi senza umsebenzaso ehlameni, bekube kulapho seyikhukhumele yoke ihlama. Kunjalo-ke nangomlayezo womBuso, urhatjheke bewayokufika ‘nemaphethelweni wephasi.’ (IzE. 1:8) Iphuzweli emfanekisweni lo liveza nokuthi umlayezo womBuso ukhamba bewuyokufika ngitjho neendaweni lapho umsebenzethu uvinjelwe khona, kungakhathaliseki bona umsebenzi lo kwezinye zeendawezo ubonakala ulilize kangangani.

15. Amezwi ka-Isaya 60:5, 22, azaliseke njani? (Qala nebhoksi elithi “ UJehova Ukwenze Kwenzeka,” ekhasini 93, nelithi “Indlela ‘ Omncani’ Abe Ngayo ‘Sisizwe Esinamandla.’” emakhasini 96-97.)

15 Eminyakeni ema-800 ngaphambi kobana uJesu atjho imifanekiso le, uJehova wasibikezela ngo-Isaya isithombe esikhanyako somsebenzi wokuvuna okungokomoya esikhathini  sanamhlanjesi, nethabo lakhona. * UJehova uhlathulula nendlela abantu ‘abavela khatjhana’ abazokuthutheleka ngayo ehlanganwenakhe. Nasekaqalisele ‘emfazini,’ ofanekiselwa ngabaseleko babazesiweko ephasini namhlanjesi, uthi: “Nje-ke uzakuqala, uphazimule; ihliziywakho izakweqayeqa, iphuphume ngethabo ngombana ukuphuphuma kwelwandle kuzakulethwa kuwe, iye umnono wezizwe uze kuwe.” (Isa. 60:1, 4, 5, 9) Kwamambala, amezwi lawo aliqiniso! Namhlanjesi, iinkurnarha zehlangano kaJehova ziyaphazimula lithabo, nazibona inani labatjhumayelako eenarheni abahlala kizo, landa kusukela kwabambalwa ukuya kwabaziinkhulungwana.

Okwenza Boke Abantu BakaJehova Babe Nebanga Lokuthaba

16, 17. Ngimuphi unobangela owenza ‘otjalako novunako bathabe’ kanyekanye? (Qala nebhoksi elithi “ Indlela Amaphetjhana Amabili Atjhukumisa Ngayo Iinhliziyo Ezimbili E-Amazon.”)

16 Uzokukhumbula bona uJesu watjela abapostoli bakhe ukuthi: ‘Ovunako sele . . . abuthelela iinthelo zokuphila okungapheliko ukuze otjalileko novunako bathabe boke.’ (Jwa. 4:36) Nje-ke ‘sithaba njani soke’ emsebenzini wokuvuna iphasi loke lo? Sithaba ngeendlela ezimbalwa. Akhesibone ezintathu zazo.

17 Kokuthoma, kuyasithabisa ukubona uJehova adlala yakhe indima emsebenzini lo. Thina nasitjhumayela umlayezo womBuso, sisuke sitjala imbewu. (Mat. 13:18, 19) Nasisiza umuntu bona abe mlandeli kaKrestu, vane sesivuna iinthelo. Soke-ke sithaba kwamambala nasesibona ikarisomraro kaJehova yokuphandlusela imbewu yomBuso, ‘ihlume beyikhule.’ (Mar. 4:27, 28) Enye imbewu esiyirhatjhako, ikhula ngokukhamba kwesikhathi, bese ivunwe ngabanye. Kungenzeka wakhe wezwa ngendaba efana neyakaJoan, udade omKrestu weBritain owabhajadiswa eminyakeni ema-60 egadungileko. Uthi: “Ngahlangana nabantu abangitjela ukuthi ngimi owatjala imbewu yeqiniso eenhliziyweni zabo ngesikhathi ngibatjhumayeza eminyakeni elitjhumi eyadlulako. Ngokungazi kwami, abanye aboFakazi bafunda nabo iBhayibheli, babasiza nokuthi babe ziinkhonzi zakaJehova. Kuyangithabisa-ke ukwazi bona imbewu engayitjala, yakhula beyavunwa.”—Funda 1 Korinte 3:6, 7.

18. Ngiliphi ibanga lokuthaba elihlathululwe kweyoku-1 Korinte 3:8?

18 Kwesibili, sihlala siziinsebenzi ezithabileko nasikhumbula okwatjhiwo nguPowula nakathi: “Omunye nomunye uzokuvuzwa ukuya ngokomsebenzakhe.” (1 Kor. 3:8) Umvuzo utholwa ngokuya ngomsebenzi, ingasi ngomphumela womsebenzi loyo. Qala bona sithabisa kangangani isiqinisekisweso malungana nokutjhumayela emasimini angatheli! Emehlweni kaZimu, omunye nomunye uFakazi ohlanganyela ngehliziyo yoke emsebenzini wokutjala, ‘uthela iinthelo ezinengi,’ yeke kufanele athabe.—Jwa. 15:8; Mat. 13:23.

19. (a) Isiphorofido sakaJesu esikuMatewu 24:14 sihlobana njani nethabo lethu? (b) Khuyini okufuze sikukhumbule nanyana singaphumeleli emsebenzini wokwenza abafundi?

19 Kwesithathu, sithatjiswa kukuthi umsebenzethu uzalisa isiporofido. Khewuzwe ipendulo kaJesu kubafundi bakhe nebambuza ukuthi: “Akhe usitjele bona izintwezi zizokwenzeka nini? Sizakuba yini isibonakaliso [‘sokuba khona,’ NW] kwakho  nesokuphela kwesikhathi na?” Wabatjela ukuthi esinye sazo kuzokuba msebenzi wokutjhumayela ephasini loke. Inga-kghani bekakhuluma ngomsebenzi wokwenza abafundi? Awa. Wathi: “Ivangeli lombusweli lizakutjhunyayelwa ephasini loke, kube bufakazi.” (Mat. 24:3, 14) Yeke, kutjho ukuthi ukutjhumayela ngomBuso—okukutjala imbewu—liphawu lesibonakaliso. Okutjho ukuthi, njengombana sitjhumayela iindaba ezimnandi zomBuso, sihlala sikhumbula ukuthi nanyana senza abafundi nje, asiphumeleli ngaso soke isikhathi ekunikeleni ‘ubufakazi.’ * Kungakhathaliseki-ke bona abantu basabela njani, thina kwethu kuzalisa isiporofido sakaJesu, bese siyamukeleka kuZimu njengabantu ababambisene naye. (1 Kor. 3:9) Leli libanga elihle kwamambala elisenza sithabe!

“Kusukela Ekuphumeni Kwelanga Bekube Butjhingo Balo”

20, 21. (a) Azaliseke njani amezwi akuMalaki 1:11? (b) Malungana nomsebenzi wokuvuna, uzimisele ukwenzani begodu kubayini kunjalo?

20 Emihleni yokuphila kwabo, uJesu wabalemukisa abapostoli bakhe bona umsebenzi wokutjhumayela urhabe kangangani. Kusukela ngo-1919 kurage njalo, uJesu bekasolo abambisene nabalandeli bakhe banamhlanjesi bona benze soneso. Abantu bakaZimaba basabela kuhle ngokuthi bawuthuthukise umsebenzi lo. Kunjengombana umphorofidi uMalaki atjho bona umsebenzi wokutjhumayela wenziwa “kusukela ekuphumeni kwelanga bekube butjhingo balo.” (Mal. 1:11, NW) Kunjalo vele, solo kwekuseni bekube kuntambama—kusukela epumalanga bekube setjingalanga, kungakhathaliseki bona bakuphi nendawo ephasini—abatjali nabavuni bathaba ndawonye emsebenzini lo. Begodu kusukela ekuseni bekuhlwe—okutjho bona ilanga loke—sisebenza njengabantu abarhabileko.

21 Nasesibuyela emva eminyakeni engaphezu kwelikhulu egadungileko, sibone izinga isiqhenyana sabantu bakaZimu esesikhule ngayo namhlanjesi saba ‘sisizwe esinamandla,’ iinhliziyo zethu ‘ziphuphuma ithabo.’ (Isa. 60:5, 22) Kwanga ithabwelo nendlela esimthanda ngayo uJehova ‘iKosi yesivuno,’ kungahlohlozela omunye nomunye kithi bona aragele phambili nokuzibandakanya emsebenzini omkhulu lo wokuvuna bekube kulapho uphethwa khona!—Luk. 10:2.

^ isig. 3 UJesu nakazaze athi ‘amasimu [“amhlophe,” NW]’ kungezeka bekaqalisele emarobhweni amhlophe egade abotjhwe liwomakazi lamaSamariya naliza kuye.

^ isig. 9 Nawufuna ilwazi elinabileko ngeminyaka leyo neminye ematjhumi eyalandela, sikukhuthaza bona ufunde amakhasi 425-520 wencwadi ethi OFakazi BakaJehova—Abamemezeli BoMbuso KaNkulunkulu, eveza izinga lomsebenzi wokutjhumayela kusukela ngo-1919 ukuya ku-1992.

^ isig. 15 Nawufuna ilwazi elinabileko ngesithombe sesiphorofidwesi, qala Isiprofetho Sika-Isaya—Ukukhanya Kuso Sonke Isintu II, amakhasi 303-320.

^ isig. 19 Iqiniso eliqakathekilekwelo balizwa kuhle abaFundi beBhayibheli bekadeni. I-Zion’s Watch Tower kaNovemba 15, 1895, yathi: “Nakungabuthelelwa ikoroyi encani, bungaba bunengi ubufakazi beqiniso. . . . Okutjho bona woke umuntu angalitjhumayela ivangeli.”
