JEHOVAH EVRITAEM LEADIM PIPOL BILONG HEM

3. Wanem nao mekem evri man for followim wanfala road wea lead go long dae?

3 Start kam long taem wea Jehovah wakem olketa man, hem  givim instruction long olketa. Olsem example, long garden bilong Eden, Jehovah givim instruction wea bae leadim olketa man for kasem laef olowe and for hapi. (Gen. 2:15-17) Bat Adam and Eve no followim wanem Jehovah talem. Eve followim advaes from wanfala snek nomoa, and Adam followim samting wea Eve talem. Wanem nao kamaot from datwan? Tufala evriwan kasem nogud samting and tufala dae and bae no laef moa.

Bikos start long datfala taem, Jehovah letem pipol for kaikaim meat. From datwan hem wanfala niu samting, Jehovah givim olketa niu instruction. Hem sei: “Iufala mas no kaikaim meat wea blood stap yet insaed long hem bikos datwan hem soul bilong hem.” (Gen. 9:1-4) Datwan helpem iumi for savve long tingting bilong God abaotem laef. Laef bilong evri samting hem bilong God. Hem nao wakem iumi and givim iumi laef, so hem garem raet for mekem olketa rul saed long laef. Olsem example, hem sei olketa man mas no killim dae narawan.

NIU NATION KASEM OLKETA NIU INSTRUCTION

6. Why nao God givim Law bilong Moses long pipol bilong hem, and hao nao olketa shud ting long olketa law hia?

6 Long taem bilong Moses, Jehovah givim instruction long pipol bilong hem abaotem olketa standard bilong hem and worship wea hem acceptim. Why nao olsem? Samfala change hem kamap. Olketa Israelite slave long Egypt for winim tu handred year. Pipol long Egypt worshipim olketa idol and olketa wea dae finis, and olketa duim staka nara samting wea God heitim. Taem pipol bilong God kamap free from Egypt, olketa needim samfala niu instruction. Olketa bae kamap nation wea followim nomoa Law bilong Jehovah. Samfala buk sei Hebrew word “law” hem kam from wanfala word wea minim “instruction, givim direction, and leadim.” Law bilong Moses helpem olketa Israelite for no duim olketa nogud samting wea join witim false religion. Taem olketa Israelite obeyim God, olketa kasem blessing. Taem olketa no obeyim hem, olketa kasem olketa barava nogud samting.—Readim Deuteronomy 28:1, 2, 15.

7. (a) Wanem nao narafala reason why God givim Law bilong Moses long olketa Israelite? (b) Hao nao Law hem gaedem olketa Israelite?

7 Nara reason stap tu why God givim Law bilong Moses long olketa Israelite. Datfala Law helpem olketa Israelite for redi for wanfala barava important samting long plan bilong Jehovah, wea hem nao kakam bilong Messiah, Jesus Christ. Law helpem olketa Israelite for luksavve olketa no  perfect. And tu, hem helpem olketa for luksavve olketa needim ransom, wea hem nomoa sakrifaes wea savve finisim sin. (Gal. 3:19; Heb. 10:1-10) Datfala Law protectim famili laen wea Messiah bae born kam long hem and helpem olketa Israelite for luksavve long Messiah taem hem kam. So Law hem “gaedem” olketa Israelite and leadim olketa go long Christ.—Gal. 3:23, 24.

8. Why nao hem gud for iumi followim olketa principle long Law bilong Moses?

8 Iumi olketa Christian tu savve kasem gud samting from Law bilong Moses. Long wanem wei? Iumi savve lanem staka samting from olketa principle long datfala Law. Nomata iumi no followim Law bilong Moses distaem, staka samting long datfala Law savve helpem iumi saed long laef and worship bilong iumi. Jehovah mek sure olketa law hia stap long Bible mekem iumi lane from olketa, followim olketa principle long datfala Law, and tu, for helpem iumi tinghae long teaching bilong Jesus wea winim datfala Law. Olsem example, Jesus sei: “Iufala herem hao olketa sei: ‘Iu mas no duim adultery.’ Bat mi talem iufala distaem, eniwan wea gohed for lukluk long wanfala woman and laek for durong witim hem, hem duim adultery finis witim hem long heart bilong hem.” So iumi mas no durong, and tu, iumi mas aotem tingting for laek durong witim narawan.—Matt. 5:27, 28.

9. Why nao Jehovah givim samfala niu instruction long pipol bilong hem?

9 Bihaen Jesus kamap Messiah, Jehovah givim samfala niu instruction long pipol bilong hem and storyim samfala samting moa abaotem plan bilong hem. Why nao Jehovah duim olsem? Bikos samfala change moa kamap. Long 33 C.E., Jehovah rejectim nation bilong Israel and olketa long Christian kongregeson nao kamap pipol bilong hem.

GOD LEADIM SPIRITUAL ISRAEL

10. Why nao God givim olketa niu instruction long Christian kongregeson, and hao nao olketa instruction hia hem difren from Law bilong Moses?

10 Jehovah givim Law bilong Moses long olketa Israelite for helpem olketa worshipim hem long stretfala wei. Start long first century, pipol bilong God no kam from wanfala kantri nomoa bat olketa kam from olketa difren kantri and garem difren kaen living. Olketa nao spiritual Israel, wea hem Christian kongregeson, and olketa insaed long wanfala niu agreement. Jehovah givim olketa niu instruction for helpem olketa Christian worshipim hem long stretfala wei. Tru nao, “God hem no favorim eniwan. Long evri kantri long world, sapos man worshipim God and duim samting wea stret, God bae hapi long hem.” (Acts 10:34, 35) Olketa Christian obeyim “law bilong Christ,” wea garem staka principle, wea God no raetem long ston, bat hem raetem insaed heart bilong olketa. “Law bilong Christ” hem leadim and helpem olketa Christian nomata long eni ples wea olketa stap.—Gal. 6:2.

11. Wanem nao tufala instruction wea Jesus talem long olketa Christian?

11 Spiritual Israel kasem barava gud samting from olketa instruction wea Jehovah iusim Jesus for givim long olketa. Bifor Jesus startim niu agreement, hem talem tufala important instruction long olketa Christian. Firstfala instruction hem abaotem preaching waka. Mek-tu hem abaotem wei wea olketa Christian shud ting long each other. Olketa instruction hia hem for olketa Christian distaem tu, nomata iumi garem hope for laef olowe long heven or long earth.

12. Storyim wei wea preaching waka hem wanfala niu samting.

12 Tingim instruction wea Jesus talem  abaotem preaching waka. Long bifor, pipol from olketa difren kantri mas kam long Israel for worshipim Jehovah. (1 Ki. 8:41-43) Bat wanfala change kamap taem Jesus talem komand wea stap long Matthew 28:19, 20. (Readim.) Jesus talem olketa disaepol for “go” and teachim evriwan. Long Pentecost 33 C.E., Jehovah showimaot klia hem laekem olketa Christian for preachim gud nius evriwea long world. Long datfala day, samting olsem 120 Christian kasem holy spirit and start for toktok long olketa difren languis long pipol wea Jew and olketa wea followim religion bilong olketa Jew. (Acts 2:4-11) Bihaen datwan, olketa start for preach long pipol bilong Samaria. Then, long 36 C.E., olketa preach long pipol wea no Jew wea no circumcise. So olketa Christian mas go preach long evriwan long world!

13, 14. (a) Wanem nao iumi mas duim for followim datfala “niu law” wea Jesus talem? (b) Wanem nao iumi savve lanem from example bilong Jesus?

13 And tu, Jesus givim “wanfala niu law” abaotem wei wea iumi shud ting long olketa brata and sista. (Readim John 13:34, 35.) Iumi mas evritaem showimaot love long olketa, and tu, iumi mas willing for dae for olketa. Datwan hem samting wea Law bilong Moses no talem olketa Israelite for duim.—Matt. 22:39; 1 John 3:16.

14 Jesus showimaot nambawan example long wei for showimaot love. From hem barava lovem olketa disaepol, hem willing for dae for olketa. And hem laekem evriwan wea followim hem for duim sem samting. So iumi willing for kasem olketa hard samting and iumi willing for dae tu for olketa brata and sista bilong iumi.—1 Thess. 2:8.

15 Jesus markem datfala “wakaman wea faithful and wise” for givim olketa Christian ‘kaikai long barava taem.’ (Matt. 24:45-47) Samfala taem datfala kaikai hem olketa important direction for pipol bilong God for fitim samfala samting wea kasem olketa distaem and waka wea olketa mas duim.

16 Iumi stap long “olketa last day,” and klosap nao wanfala trabol bae kamap wea hem worse winim eni trabol wea happen bifor. (2 Tim. 3:1; Mark 13:19) And tu, Jesus aotem Satan and olketa demon from heven and torowem olketa go daon long earth, and from datwan, olketa man kasem barava nogud samting. (Rev. 12:9, 12) Nara samting tu, iumi followim komand bilong Jesus for preach long staka pipol evriwea long world and iumi iusim staka difren languis for duim datfala preaching waka!
