Pakulewa bza bzipembedzo bza mcimidzi bza mu Afrika, Mpfunzisi Geoffrey Parrinder adati: “Wazinji wa mu Afrika wambakhulupira Mulungu mkulu, baba wa mirungu na wanthu, Mulengi wa bzense.”

Anjo Gabiriyeri adati kuna iye: “un’dzatenga pathupi, ucidzabereka mwana wamwamuna, ucidzamucemera dzina lakuti Jezu. Ndipo iye an’dzatonga ninga mambo. . . , ndipo Umambo bwace bun’dzamala lini.”—Luka 1:31, 33. *

(Mabasa 2:32, 33) Patsogolo pace, Yahova adamupasa “Utongi, na Ukulu, na Umambo, kuti zimutumikire mbumba zense, na madzinza yense, na mitundu ya bzirewedwe bzense.” (Danyeri 7:13, 14) Jezu adaikhidwa kukhala Mambo wa mphamvu wa boma la Yahova la kudzulu. Tsapanopa iye an’latiza mphanvu zace pa dziko lense la pansi.

Wanjo, Atumiki wa Mulungu

15. Kodi wanjo wadalengedwa lini, ndipo wadalengedwa kuponi?

15 Yahova na Jezu ndiwo lini wokha womwe wana moyo wa uzimu. Yahova adalengambo bzakulengedwa bzinango bza uzimu, womwe ni wanjo. Gabiriyeri, omwe adalewa-lewa na Mariya, ni m’bodzi wa iwo. Wanjowo walibe kutoma kukhala na moyo ninga wanthu pansi pano. Iwo wadalengedweratu kudzuluko, pomwe wanthu wakhanati kulengedwa pansi pano.

(Mabasa 5:18, 19) Tsono, tikamunamata Yahova mwakubverana na Fala lace, Bibliya, ifepano tingakhulupire kuti wanjo wa mphamvu wa Mulungu, wan’dzatithandiza. Bibliya limbati: “Anjo wa Yahova ambalindira wense womwe wambamugopa, kuti awapulumuse.” (Psalymo 34:7; 91:11) Thangwe ranyi bzimwebzi bzin’funika kutitsangalaza? Thangwe walipo anyamadulanthaka wakuipa wa uzimu womwe wan’funa kutipweteka!

Sathani, Nyamadulanthaka wa Mulungu

Kodi bzimwebzi bzidacitika tani?  Wanjo wense womwe Yahova adalenga, wakhali wabwino na wakulungama. Tsono, m’bodzi wa wana wakulungamiratu wa uzimuwa, adafuna kuti wanthu wambamunamate. Ndipo adacita ciri-cense kuti cikhumbo cace cakuipaco cikwanisike.

Bzitamala bzimwebzi, Sathani adazunza Djobi “na bzironda bzakupweteka, kuyambira ku nzayo kwace mpaka mu msolo.”—Djobi 1:3-19; 2:7.

Tenepo, Yahova adamuciza, ‘acimupasa kawiri-kense bzense bzomwe Djobi akhanabzo.’ (Djobi 42:10) Sathani adatazira kuti Djobi akhale na mtima wakugawanika. Tsono iye ankukwanisa kupambusa wanthu winango wakutumikira Mulungu. Bibliya limbati: “dziko lense liri m’manja mwa nyakuipayo.”—1 Juwau 5:19.

21. (a) Kodi Sathani adalatiza tani cikhumbo cace cakufuna kunamatidwa? (b) Thangwe ranyi Jezu adalamba kunamata Sathani?

Bibliya limbati: “Dyabu ule adamutenga pomwe Iye, aciyenda naye pa phiri lomwe likhali litali kwene-kwene, acimulatiza ma umambo yense ya pansi pano, na mbiri zawo, acimuuza kuti: ‘Bzensenebzi ndin’kupasa, malinge ungagodama, ucindinamata kabodzi kokha.’” Tsono Jezu adalamba, aciti: ‘Coka Sathani! Pakuti bzidanembedwa: ‘Yahova Mulungu wako ndiye un’dzamunamata; ndipo iye yekha ndiye un’dzatumikira.’” (Mateu 4:8-10) Jezu akhacidziwiratu cakutonga ca Yahova, ndipo alibe kucita bzomwe Sathani akhafuna.

Madimonyo, Mizimu Yakuipa

22. Kodi n’ciani comwe madimonyo yadacitira wanthu?

Kale-kale, iwo wadacitisa kuti wanthu winango wakhale abewewe na waboli-boli. (Mateu 9:32, 33; 12:22) Winango adawadwalisa, ndipo winango adawadzedzemwesa.

Tsono Bibliya limbacenjeza kuti: “bzinthu bzomwe wa mitundu wambapereka ninga nsembe, iwo wambapereka kwa madimonyo, sikuti kwa Mulungu.”—1 Wakolinto 10:20.

24. Njiponi njira ibodzi yomwe Sathani ambaphatisa basa kuti apambuse wanthu?

Penu mumbagopa Mbuya, ndisiyeni, muciyenda njira yanu.’ Iye adatawira aciti: ‘Ndine mtumiki wa Mbuya wako, ndipo ndabwera kudzakupasa mwana wakucena.’ Mkazi ule adatawira kuti: ‘Ndingabereke tani mwana pomwe ndine dende, wakusaya kudziwa mwamuna?’ Iye adati: ‘Kumweko ndiko kufuna kwa Mbuya.’ ‘Cimweco si cinthu cakunesa kwa Iye.’ Mbuya akuti: “Iye an’dzakhala cizindikiro kwa wanthu, na cisimbo cakucokera kwa Ifepano. Cimweci ndico cakutonga Cathu.” ’ ”
