MWARI AKARONGA VANHU VAKE VEKARE

5. Chinangwa chaMwari chokuti vanhu vazadze nyika chakambovhiringidzwa sei?

5 Jehovha paakasika vanhu vokutanga akavaudza kuti: “Berekai muwande, muzadze nyika, muikurire, muve nesimba pahove dzegungwa nepazvisikwa zvinobhururuka zvokumatenga nepazvisikwa zvose zvipenyu zvinofamba panyika.” (Gen. 1:28) Vanhu vaifanira kuramba vachiwanda kusvika vazadza nyika uye vachiigadzira kuti yose ive Paradhiso. Chinangwa ichocho chaMwari chakambovhiringidzwa nokusateerera kwaAdhamu naEvha. (Gen. 3:1-6) Nokufamba kwenguva, “Jehovha akaona kuti kuipa kwomunhu kwakanga kuri kuzhinji panyika uye zvose zvaidiwa nepfungwa dzomwoyo wake zvakanga zvakangoipa nguva dzose.” Izvi zvakaita kuti ‘nyika ishatiswe pamberi paMwari wechokwadi uye izare nechisimba.’ Saka Mwari akasarudza kuunza mafashamo aizoparadza vanhu vaisamuda.—Gen. 6:5, 11-13, 17.

6 Zvisinei,“Noa akanzwirwa nyasha naJehovha” nokuti “akanga ari munhu akarurama” uye “akanga asina mhosva pakati pevanhu venguva yake.” Nemhaka yokuti “Noa akafamba naMwari wechokwadi,” Jehovha akamurayira kuti avake areka yakakura. (Gen. 6:8, 9, 14-16) Areka yacho yaifanira kuvakwa kuti iyangarare pamusoro pemvura kuti vanhu nemhuka zvipone. “Noa akaita maererano nezvose zvaakanga arayirwa naJehovha,” uye achibatsirwa nemhuri yake, akapedza kuvaka areka nenzira yakarongeka. Zvinhu zvipenyu pazvakapinzwa muareka, “Jehovha akavhara suo.”—Gen. 7:5, 16.

7 Mafashamo paakauya muna 2370 B.C.E., Jehovha ‘akaparadza zvinhu zvose zvipenyu panyika,’ asi akaponesa Noa nemhuri yake. (Gen. 7:23) Munhu wose ari panyika akabva kuna Noa, vanakomana vake, nemadzimai avo. Asi vose vasina kupinda muareka vakaparara nokuti vakaramba kuteerera Noa, “muparidzi wokururama.”—2 Pet. 2:5.

Somuenzaniso, akaronga kuti pave nevapristi nevaRevhi, uyewo “vashandikadzi vaiita basa rakarongwa pasuo retende rokusanganira.” (Eks. 38:8) Zvisinei, Jehovha Mwari paakarayira vaIsraeri kuti vapinde munyika yeKenani, vakawanda vavo vakaratidza kuti vainge vasina kutendeka, saka akavaudza kuti: “Hamuzopindi munyika yandakasimudzira ruoko rwangu ndichipika kuti ndigare nemi, kunze kwaKarebhi, mwanakomana waJefune naJoshua mwanakomana waNuni” nokuti vakauya nemashoko akanaka pavakaenda kunosora Nyika Yakapikirwa. (Num. 14:30, 37, 38) Mosesi akazogadza Joshua kuti asare achitungamirira vaIsraeri sezvaainge arayirwa naMwari. (Num. 27:18-23) Joshua paainge ava kuda kupinda muKenani nevaIsraeri, Jehovha akamuudza kuti: “Shinga, usimbe. Usavhunduka kana kutya, nokuti Jehovha Mwari wako anewe kwose kwaunoenda.”—Josh. 1:9.

9 Chokwadi Jehovha Mwari aiva naJoshua kwose kwaaienda. Somuenzaniso, funga zvakaitika vaIsraeri pavainge vadzika musasa pedyo neguta revaKenani reJeriko. Muna 1473 B.C.E., Joshua akatuma varume vaviri kuti vanosora Jeriko, uye pavakasvika ikoko vakaonana nemukadzi aiva pfambi ainzi Rakabhi. Mukadzi uyu akavavanza padenga reimba yake kuti vasaonekwa nenhume dzamambo weJeriko. Rakabhi akaudza varume vaviri ava vechiIsraeri kuti: “Ndinoziva kuti Jehovha achakupai nyika . . . , nokuti takanzwa kuomesa kwakaita Jehovha mvura yeGungwa Dzvuku pamberi penyu . . . nezvamakaitira madzimambo maviri evaAmori.” Akawedzera kuti: “Jehovha Mwari wenyu ndiMwari kumatenga ari kumusoro nepanyika iri pasi.” (Josh. 2:9-11) Mwari akaponesa Rakabhi nemhuri  yake pakaparadzwa Jeriko nemhaka yokuti akabvuma kuita zvaienderana neurongwa hwaMwari. (Josh. 6:25) Rakabhi akaratidza kuti aiva nokutenda, aitya Jehovha, uye kuti airemekedza vashumiri vake.

VAKRISTU VEPAKUTANGA VAINGE VAKARONGEKA

10. Jesu akaudza vatungamiriri vechitendero chechiJudha kuti chii, uye nei akataura izvozvo?

10 Vachitungamirirwa naJoshua, vaIsraeri vakakunda maguta akawanda uye vakatora nyika yeKenani. Asi chii chakazoitika nokufamba kwenguva? Kwemazana emakore akazotevera, vaIsraeri vairamba vachityora mitemo yaMwari. Jehovha paakazotuma Mwanakomana wake panyika, kusateerera Mwari uye vaprofita kwaiita vaIsraeri kwainge kwanyanya zvokuti Jesu akatotaura nezveJerusarema kuti raiva “muurayi wevaprofita.” (Verenga Mateu 23:37, 38.) Mwari akaramba vatungamiriri vechitendero chechiJudha nokuti vainge vasina kutendeka. Saka Jesu akavaudza kuti: “Muchatorerwa umambo hwaMwari hwopiwa rudzi runobereka zvibereko zvahwo.”—Mat. 21:43.

11, 12. (a) Chii chinoratidza kuti munguva yevaapostora, Jehovha akaramba rudzi rwechiJudha akatanga kufarira sangano idzva? (b) Sangano idzva rainge rava kufarirwa naMwari raisanganisira vanaani?

11 Munguva yevaapostora, Jehovha akaramba rudzi rwevaIsraeri rwainge rusina kutendeka. Asi izvozvo zvaisareva kuti ainge asisina sangano revashumiri vake vakavimbika panyika. Jehovha ainge ava kufarira sangano idzva revanhu vaiteerera Jesu Kristu nedzidziso dzake. Sangano iroro rakatanga paPendekosti ya33 C.E. Panguva iyoyo, vadzidzi vaJesu 120 vainge vakaungana pane imwe nzvimbo muJerusarema “uye kwakangoerekana kwava noruzha rwakaita semhepo inovhuvhuta nesimba rwakabva kudenga, rukazadza imba yose.” Zvadaro “vakaona ndimi dzakafanana nedzomoto uye dzakapararira pose, pane mumwe nomumwe wavo pakagara rumwe chete, vose vakazadzwa nomudzimu mutsvene, vakatanga kutaura nedzimwe ndimi, sokupiwa kwavakanga vachiitwa nomudzimu kuti vataure.” (Mab. 2:1-4) Chiitiko ichi chinoshamisa chakanyatsoratidza kuti Jehovha aitsigira sangano iroro idzva revadzidzi vaKristu.

12 “Pazuva iroro mweya inenge zviuru zvitatu yakawedzerwa” pavateveri vaJesu. Uyewo “Jehovha akaramba achiwedzera kwavari zuva nezuva vaya vakanga vachiponeswa.” (Mab. 2:41, 47) Vaparidzi ivavo vaibudirira chaizvo pabasa ravo zvokuti “shoko raMwari rakaramba richikura, uye vadzidzi vakaramba vachiwedzera kwazvo muJerusarema.” Kunyange “boka guru revapristi rakatanga kuteerera kutenda.” (Mab. 6:7) Vanhu vakawanda vaida Mwari vakabvuma chokwadi chaiparidzwa nenhengo dzesangano iri idzva. Jehovha akazoratidzawo kuti aivatsigira paakatanga kuunza “vanhu vemamwe marudzi” muungano yechiKristu.—Verenga Mabasa 10:44, 45.

13. Mwari akapa sangano rake idzva basa rei?

13 Vateveri vaKristu vaiva nebasa ravainge vapiwa naMwari uye zvaiva pachena kuti basa iroro raiva rei. Jesu pachake ainge avasiyira muenzaniso wakanaka nokuti paakangobhabhatidzwa, akatanga kuparidza nezve“Umambo hwokumatenga.” (Mat. 4:17) Jesu akadzidzisa vadzidzi vake kuti vaitewo basa iroro. Akavaudza kuti: “Muchava zvapupu zvangu muJerusarema nomuJudhiya mose nomuSamariya uye kusvikira kurutivi ruri kure kwazvo rwenyika.” (Mab. 1:8) VaKristu vepakutanga vainyatsoziva zvavaifanira kuita. Somuenzaniso, Pauro naBhanabhasi pavaiva muAndiyoki muPisidhiya, vakaudza vaJudha vaivapikisa kuti: “Zvakanga zvakakodzera kuti shoko raMwari ritange kutaurwa kwamuri. Zvamuri kurisundira kure uye muchizviti  hamuna kukodzerwa noupenyu husingaperi, tarirai! tava kutendeukira kune mamwe marudzi. Chokwadi, Jehovha akatirayira nemashoko aya, ‘Ndakakugadzai sechiedza chemamwe marudzi, kuti imi muve ruponeso kusvikira kumugumo wenyika.’” (Mab. 13:14, 45-47) Kubva munguva yevaapostora, chikamu chepanyika chesangano raJehovha chave chichiudza vanhu nezveurongwa hwaMwari hwokuponesa vanhu.

VAKAWANDA VAKAPARARA, ASI VASHUMIRI VAMWARI VAKAPONA

14. Chii chakaitika kuJerusarema munguva yevaapostora, uye ndivanani vakapona?

14 VaJudha vakawanda havana kuteerera mashoko akanaka, uye kusateerera ikoko kwaizoita kuti vawirwe nedambudziko nokuti Jesu ainge anyevera vadzidzi vake kuti: “Pamunoona Jerusarema rakombwa nemauto akadzika misasa, panguva iyoyo zivai kuti rava kuda kuitwa dongo. Panguva iyoyo vari muJudhiya ngavatange kutizira kumakomo, nevaya vari mukati maro ngavabude, uye vaya vari kumaruwa ngavarege kupinda mariri.” (Ruka 21:20, 21) Zvakataurwa naJesu zvakazoitika. Kupanduka kwainge kwaita vaJudha kwakaita kuti mauto eRoma achitungamirirwa naCestius Gallus, akombe Jerusarema muna 66 C.E. Zvisinei, mauto acho akangoerekana aenda uye izvozvo zvakapa vateveri vaJesu mukana wokubuda muJerusarema neJudhiya. Munyori wenhoroondo anonzi Eusebius akataura kuti vakawanda vakatiza ndokuyambuka Rwizi rwaJodhani vakananga kuPera yaiva muPereya. Muna 70 C.E., mauto eRoma akadzoka achitungamirirwa naTitus ndokuparadza Jerusarema. Asi vaKristu vakatendeka vakapona nokuti vakateerera nyevero yaJesu.

16. VaKristu vaifanira kuitei kuti varambe vakasimba pakunamata?

(Mab. 15:36, 40, 41) Zvinoshamisa chaizvo kuona kufanana kwakaita manamatiro evaKristu vepakutanga neatiri kuita mazuva ano. Chokwadi tinoonga chaizvo kuti Jehovha akaronga vashumiri vake vekare nevemazuva ano! *
