Timbawona bzimwebzi na momwe adacitira na dzinza la Jirayeri pomwe lidamuphonyera. Pomwe iwo adazindikira kuphonya kwawo, Yahova adawalatiza lufoyi na nsisi.

Kodi Adamu adaphatisa tani basa bwino ufulu bwace bwa kusankhula? Adamu adakondwa na mwayi wakupasa bzirombo madzina. Mulungu ‘adayamba kubzibweresa kuna munthuyo kuti apase madzina kwa cibodzi na cibodzi.’ Adamu akhanyang’anisisa cirombo ciri-cense ndipo akhapereka dzina lakubverana na ciromboco. Yahova alibe kucinja dzina ne na libodzi lomwe Adamu akhapereka. ‘Dzina liri-lense lomwe munthuyo akhapereka kwa camoyo ciri-cense, likhakhaladi dzina lace.’—Ciyambo 2:19.

8. Kodi Adamu adaphatisa tani basa mwakuphonyeka ufulu bwace bwa kusankhula ndipo bzakutewera bzace ni bziponi?

Munyang’anire nsomba za m’nyanza, na bzakumbuluka bza mu mlenga-lenga, na bzamoyo bzense bzomwe bzimbafamba-famba m’dziko la pansi.’ (Ciyambo 1:28) Koma Adamu adasankhula kudya cisapo ca muti wakuletsedwa ndipo kucita bzimwebzo kukhali kulamba malire yomwe Yahova adawaikhira. Tsono pakuti Adamu adaphatisa basa mwakuphonyeka ufulu bwace bwa kusankhula, wanthu ankubonera kwene-kwene mpaka pano.

Bzimwebzi bzin’ticitisa kuphatisa basa ufulu bwathu bwa kusankhula mwa njira yabwino na kubvuma malire yomwe Yahova adatipasa.

Tingawone bzimwebzi na momwe Yahova adacitira bzinthu na dzinza la Jirayeri. Yahova adawapasa mwayi wakuti asankhule kukhala cuma cace cakupambulika ayai ne. (Kufuluka 19:3-6) Dzinzalo lidasankhula kukhala wanthu wa Mulungu ndipo lidabvuma malire yomwe Mulungu adawaikhira. Iwo adati: ‘Bzense bzomwe Yahova walewa,  tin’dzacita bzimwebzo.’ (Kufuluka 19:8) Mwakupasa nsisi, wanthuwo na kupita kwa nthawe alibe kudzateweza mpanganoyo. Tinkupfunza cinthu cinango pa ciratizo cimweci. Tinkupfunza kuti nthawe zense, tin’funika kulemekeza mwayi wathu wa ufulu bwa kusankhula na kupitiriza kukhala wakubverana na Yahova mwa kumbabvera mitemo yace.—1 Wakolinto 10:11.

10 Mu kapitulo 11 ya Wahebereu, timbagumana madzina 16 ya amuna na akazi omwe adasankhula kuteweza malire yomwe Yahova adaikha. Ninga bzakutewera, iwo adakhala na bzisimbo bzizinji ndipo ana cidikhiro cabwino ca kutsogolo. Mwa ciratizo, Nowe akhana cikhulupiro camphanvu ndipo adasankhula kubvera malango yense ya Mulungu ya kamangidwe ka cingalawa cakupulumusira banja lace na mbadwo wa kutsogolo. (Wahebereu 11:7) Abalahamu na Sara mwa kufuna kwawo adabvera Mulungu ndipo adayenda ku dziko lomwe Iye akhadawapicira kuwapasa. Napo kuti iwo akhana ‘mpata wa kubwerera’ ku mzinda wa Uri, iwo adapitiriza kunyang’anisa pa mapiciro ya Mulungu ya kutsogolo. Bibliya limbalewa kuti iwo ‘akhatsungira mbuto yabwino kwene-kwene.’ (Wahebereu 11:8, 13, 15, 16) Mozeji adalamba cuma ca ku Edjipito ndipo ‘adasankhula kuzunzidwa pabodzi na wanthu wa Mulungu, m’mbuto mwakucita bzinthu bzakudekeza bza kanthawe kakucepa bza pikado.’ (Waheberewu 11:24-26) Bwerani timbatewezere cikhulupiro cawo ticimbatenda mphaso yathu ya ufulu bwa kusankhula mwa kucita bzomwe Mulungu ambafuna.

11. (a) Kodi cibodzi mwa bzisimbo bzakufunika kwene-kwene n’ciponi? (b) Kodi n’ciyani cimbakuthandizani kuphatisa basa bwino ufulu bwanu bwa kusankhula?

Kodi cisimbo cimweco n’ciponi? Bibliya limbafotokoza cinthuco pa Bzakutonga 30:19, 20. (Werengani.) Pa vesi 19, pambalewa kuti Mulungu adapasa Ajirayeri Cakusankhula. Pa vesi 20 timbawona kuti Yahova adawapasa mwayi wa momwe iwo angadalatizira lufoyi lawo kwa iye. Ifembo tingasankhule kunamata Yahova.

Bibliya limbalewa kuti mu ‘nsiku zakumalizira,’ wanthu angadadzakhala ‘wakusaya kutenda.’ (2 Timotio 3:1, 2) Tsono tingalatize tani kuti timbatenda mphaso yathu yakufunika ya Yahovayi?

Tibvume mwakubzicepswa kuti ‘munthu wa pansi pano alibe mphanvu yakulungamiza njira za moyo wace. Munthu omwe an’famba, alibe mphanvu yakutsogolera nzayo zace.’ (Jeremiya 10:23.)
