‘Cikhulupiro ndico cidikhiro cakutsimikizika ca bzinthu bzakudikhiridwa.’—WAHEBEREU 11:1.

Bzin’dzadekeza kwene-kwene bzikadzakwanisika! (Juwau 10:16; 2 Pedru 3:13) Ndipo tinkufunisisa kuwona momwe Yahova an’dzapitirizira kutsogolera na kuthandiza wanthu wace nsiku zakumalizira zino.

Yahova caiyeyo ambalewa bza mapiciro yace ninga kuti yacitika kale mwa kulewa kuti: ‘Bzakwanisika!’ (Werengani Cibvumbulutso 21:3-6.) Timbadziwa kuti Yahova nthawe zense ambacita bzomwe ambapicira.

Limbalewambo bza wanthu winango omwe adatumbiza Yahova ‘thangwe ra cikhulupiro cawo.’ (Wahebereu 11:39) Wensene akhadikhira ‘mbeu’ yomwe Yahova akhadaipicira. Iwo akhadziwa kuti ‘mbeuyo’ ingadadzapfudza anyamadulanthaka wense wa Mulungu na kucitisa dziko la pansi kukhala pomwe paraizo.

Cadidi, iwo akhadikhira lini kuti an’dzalamusidwa kuti akakhale na moyo kudzulu, pakuti Jezu akhanati kufungula njira kuti bzimwebzi bzicitike.

M’bodzi wa iwo akhali Abalahamu. Jezu adalewa kuti Abalahamu ‘akhakomedwa kwene-kwene na kudikhirira kuwona’ nthawe imweyi. (Juwau 8:56) Sara, Izaki, Djakobi na atumiki winango adadikhirirambo kuwona nthawe yomwe Umambo ‘bwakukonzedwa na Mulungu,’ bun’dzatongera dziko lense.—Wahebereu 11:8-11.

6 Kodi Abalahamu pabodzi na banja lace adapitiriza tani kulimbisa cikhulupiro cawo? Iwo adapitiriza kupfunza bza Yahova. Pa nthawe inango, Mulungu adalewalewa nawo mwakuphatisa basa wanjo, matsomphenya na maloto. Pinango iwo adapfunza kuna atumiki wakukhulupirika wakale ayai bzinembo bzakale.

7 Kodi n’ciyani comwe cin’dzatithandiza kuti tipitirize kulimbisa cikhulupiro cathu? Yahova adatipasa Bibliya kuti tipfunze bza mapiciro yace yakutsogolo. M’Bibliyamo, iye ambatilatiza bzomwe tin’funika kucita kuti tikhale wakukondwa. Ndipopa tin’funika kuwerenga Bibliya nsiku zense na kuteweza malango yace. (Psalymo 1:1-3; werengani Mabasa 17:11.) Yahova ambatipasambo ‘cakudya pa nthawe yakuthemera’ mwakuphatisa basa ‘kapolo wakukhulupirika na wanzeru.’ (Mateu 24:45) Ninga atumiki wakale wa Mulungu, tin’funika nthawe zense kumbawerenga bza mapiciro ya Mulungu na kumbayakumbukira mwakusamala. Bzimwebzi bzin’dzatithandiza kupitiriza kukhala wakukhulupirika kuna Mulungu na kudikhirira na mtima wense nthawe yomwe Umambo bwace bun’dzatonga dziko lense la pansi.

Pomwe iwo akhawona kuti iye ankutawira mipembo yawo, cikhulupiro cawo cikhalimba. (Nehemiya 1:4, 11; Psalymo 34:4, 15, 17; Danyeri 9:19-21) Mu njira ibodzi-bodziyi, tikambawona kuti Yahova ankutawira mipembo yathu acitipasa bzomwe tikhafunikira pa nthawe yakuthemera, cikhulupiro cathu kwa iye cimbalimba. (Werengani 1 Juwau 5:14, 15.) Tin’funikambo ‘kupitiriza kukumbira’ Yahova kuti atipase mzimu wace wakucena kuti ulimbise cikhulupiro cathu.—Luka 11:9, 13.

9. Kodi ni bzinthu bziponi bzomwe tingabzipemberere?

Mwa ciratizo, ‘timbakumbukira omwe ali m’kawoko.’ Ndipo ‘timbapemberambo omwe ambatsogolera pakati pathu.’ Tikambawona momwe Yahova ambatawirira mipembo yathu, cikhulupiro cathu kuna iye cimbalimba ndipo timbamufenderera.—Wahebereu 13:3, 7.

Iwo akhadziwa kuti kutsogolo, Yahova angadadzawalamusa ndipo angadadzakhala na moyo wamuyaya pa dziko lapansi. Kumbukani bza Nabote na Zakariya. Iwo adabomedwa na minyala mpaka kufa thangwe ra kubvera Mulungu. (1 Wamambo 21:3, 15; 2 Nkhani 24:20, 21) Danyeri adathusidwa m’dindi momwe mukhana mphondolo zanjala ndipo azixamwali wace adathusidwa m’dindi la moto wa mphanvu kwene-kwene. Iwo akhadatsimikiza kufa m’mbuto mwa kuphonyera Yahova. Amunawa akhana cikhulupiro cakulimba kwa Yahova kuti angadawapasa mzimu wace wakucena na kuwathandiza kuti apirire mabvutoyo.—Danyeri 3:16-18, 20, 28; 6:13, 16, 21-23; Wahebereu 11:33, 34.

Mpostolo Paulo adati: ‘Thangwe ra cikondweso comwe adamuikhira patsogolo pace, iye adapirira muti wakuzunzikira, iye alibe kucita thupo na manyazi, ndipo tsapano wakhala pansi ku boko la madidi la mpando wa umambo wa Mulungu.’ (Wahebereu 12:2) Patsogolo pace Paulo adalimbikisa akristau kuti ‘ambakumbukire na tceru’ ciratizo ca Jezu. (Werengani Wahebereu 12:3.) Ninga Jezu, akristau azinji wa magole dzana yakutoma adafa thangwe akhali wakukhulupirika kwa Yahova. M’bodzi wa iwo akhali Antipa. (Cibvumbulutso 2:13) Akristau amwewa adatambira kale mabai-bai yawo, mwakusiyana na atumiki wa Mulungu winango wakale omwe ankudikhirira kudzatambira moyo pa dziko lapansi. (Wahebereu 11:35) Pa nthawe yomwe Jezu adakhala Mambo mu 1914, Akristau wakudzozedwa omwe akhadafa adalamusidwa aciyenda kudzulu ndipo iwo pabodzi na Jezu an’dzatonga wanthu wa mitundu yense.—Cibvumbulutso 20:4.

13, 14. Kodi Rudolf Graichen adapirira mayezo yaponi ndipo n’ciyani comwe cidamuthandiza kuti apitirize kukhala wakukhulupirika kwa Mulungu?

13 Bzulu na bzulu bza atumiki wa Mulungu ambatewezera ciratizo ca Jezu. Iwo ambakumbukira mapiciro ya Mulungu na kupitiriza kumukhulupira pa nthawe za mayezo. Kumbukirani bza Rudolf Graichen, omwe adabadwira ku Alemanha mu 1925. Pomwe iye akhali tswaka, abereki wace adamanika pa parede bzithunzi-thunzi bza paraizo ku mui kwawo.  Iye adati: “Cithunzi-thunzi cibodzi cikhalatiza mphumphi na bira, mbuzi na nyalungwe, ngombe na mphondolo—bzense bziri pa mtendere, bzinkutsogoleredwa na mwana m’ng’ono.” (Zaiya 11:6-9) Bzimwebzi bzidathandiza Rudolf kuti akumbukire kwene-kwene bza paraizo pa dziko lapansi na kulimbisa cikhulupiro cace. Ninga bzakutewera bzace, iye adapitiriza kukhala wakukhulupirika kwa Yahova napo adazunzidwa kwa magole mazinji na a Nazi ndipo patsogolo pace na gulu la Comunista la kumabvabzuwa kwa Alemanha.

Kumweko iye adakalowola mpfumakazi m’misionariyo wakucemeredwa Patsy. Koma mwakupasa nsisi, patapita gole libodzi mwana wawo wacikazi adafa. Patapita nthawe pang’ono, Patsy adafambo. Iye akhana magole 43 yakubadwa. Napo adagumana  na mayezo yenseneya, Rudolf adapitiriza kutumikira Yahova.

Azinji wa abalewa ali m’kawoko ku Eritreia, Singapura na ku Coreia do Sul, thangwe rakuti ankulamba ‘kuphata mphanga.’ (Mateu 26:52) Mwa ciratizo, Isaac, Negede, pabodzi na Paulos ali m’kawoko ku Eritreia kwa magole yakupitirira 20. Kumweko iwo ambaboneresedwa mwadzawoneni. Ndipo pa magole yenseneya, iwo angakwanise lini kulowola ayai kusamalira abereki wawo. Napo bziri tenepo, iwo ankupitiriza kulimbisa cikhulupiro cawo kuna Yahova. Ndipo tsapano alindiri wa m’kawoko ankuwalemekeza. Pa jw.org webisaite pana cithunzi-thunzi ca abalewa.
