  • BASIKWIIYA BONE BALOMBA KUPEGWA CITONDEZYO

  • KUZUZIKIZYIGWA MUMWAANDA WAMYAKA WAKUSAANGUNA ALIMWI AKUYA KUMBELE

  • TWEELEDE KUPAKAMANA

Lino nkuumazuba muli Bwabili, eelyo buzuba bwa Nisani 11 buyamukumana. Aalo mazuba aamulimo ngwaabeleka canguzu Jesu aano aanyika amana buya. Imasyikati wali kuyiisya mutempele, mpoonya masiku wali koona kunze aamunzi wa Jerusalemu. Bantu balikuyanda kapati kumuswiilila, aboobo bali “kufwuma kuunka kulinguwe mutempele kuyoomuswiilila.” (Luka 21:37, 38) Eezyi zyainda, lino Jesu ulikkede aa Cilundu ca Maolifa antoomwe abaapostolo bone—Petro, Andreya, Jakobo alimwi a Johane.

Aabo bone baboola kulinguwe kumbali. Bayeeya kujatikizya tempele nkaambo Jesu wazwa akusinsima kuti taakwe bbwe noliba lyomwe lyandilyo iliyoocaala atala abbwenyina. Pele kuli zinji nzyobayeeya. Musyule oomu Jesu wakalibaambilide kuti: “Kamulibambilide lyoonse andinywe, nkaambo aciindi ncomutayeeyeli, Mwanaamuntu ulaboola.” (Luka 12:40) Alimwi wakaambide kujatikizya “buzuba oobo Mwanaamuntu aakuyubununwa.” (Luka 17:30) Sena twaambo ootu kuli mbotuswaangene ancaazwa mukwaamba kujatikizya tempele? Baapostolo baliyandide kapati kuzyiba. Bamubuzya kuti: “Kotwaambila, ino ndilili zintu eezyi noziyooba alimwi ncinzi ciyooba citondezyo cakubako kwako acamamanino aabweende bwazintu?”—Matayo 24:3.

Ambweni bayeeya mamanino naa kunyonyoonwa kwatempele ndimunya ndibabwene munsi-munsi. Alimwi babuzya kujatikizya kubako kwa Mwanaamuntu. Beelede kuti baliyeeyede kuti Jesu wakapa cikozyanyo ‘camuntu wamumukwasyi wamwami iwakaunka kucisi cili kulamfwu kuti akapegwe bwami mpoonya akupiluka.’ (Luka 19:11, 12) Alimwi bayanda kuzyiba kuti naa “mamanino aabweende bwazintu” ayakujatikizya nzi.

Mubwiinguzi bwakwe ibujisi twaambo tunji, Jesu wapa citondezyo icitondezya nobuyakumana bweende bwazintu bwaba Juda, kubikkilizya atempele lyabo. Pele waamba azimbi zinji kunze lyazyeezyi. Citondezyo eeci ciyoobagwasya Banakristo kumbele kuzyiba kuti bapona kuciindi “cakubako” kwakwe alimwi akuti mamanino aabweende bwazintu bwanyika yoonse alaafwaafwi.

Mboiyaabuya myaka, baapostolo batalika kulibonena businsimi bwa Jesu kabuzuzikizyigwa. Inzya, izintu zinji nzyaakasinsima zyatalika kucitika mumazuba aabo. Aboobo, Banakristo bapakamene ibapona nokwainda myaka iili 37, mu 70 C.E., bajanika kuti balilibambilide alimwi balangila kunyonyoonwa kwabweende bwazintu bwaba Juda alimwi atempele lyabo ikuli afwaafwi. Pele tazili zyoonse nzyaakasinsima Jesu izyacitika mumyaka iisololela kumwaka wa 70 C.E., kubikkilizya amumwaka ngomunya ooyu. Aboobo, ino ncinzi cini iciyakuba citondezyo cakubako kwakwe mu Bwami? Jesu wabayubunwida makani aaya baapostolo bakwe.

Jesu wasinsima kuti kuyooba “nkondo mumasena aalaafwaafwi alimwi amasena aali kule” alimwi akuti “cisi ciyoobukila cisinyina abwami buyoobukila bwaminyina.” (Matayo 24:6, 7) Alimwi waamba kuti “kuyooba mizuzumo yanyika mipati, alimwi mumasena aaindene-indene kuyooba nzala azilwazi.” (Luka 21:11) Jesu wacenjezya basikwiiya bakwe kuti: “Bantu bayoomujata akumupenzya.” (Luka 21:12) Basinsimi bakubeja bayoobuka akweena bantu banji. Bubi buyoovwula alimwi  luyando lwabantu banji luyoomana. Alimwi waamba kuti ‘makani mabotu aa Bwami ayookambaukwa munyika yoonse kuti bukabe bumboni kumasi oonse, mpoonya mamanino ayoosika.’—Matayo 24:14.

Nokuba kuti zibeela zimwi zyabusinsimi bwa Jesu zyazuzikizyigwa ba Roma kabatananyonyoona alimwi anobanyonyoona Jerusalemu, sena Jesu inga kali waamba zintu iziyakuzuzikizyigwa munzila mpati kumbele? Sena mulibubwene bumboni bwakuti businsimi bwa Jesu bupati buli mukuzuzikizyigwa munzila mpati mazuba aano?

Cintu cimwi Jesu ncaabikkilizya mucitondezyo cakubako kwakwe nkulibonya kwacintu “cisesemya cileta lunyonyooko.” (Matayo 24:15) Mu 66 C.E., cintu eeci cisesemya calibonya ciindi ‘mpi zyabasikalumamba’ bana Roma ibajisi mituni naa ndembela nibauzinguluka munzi. Bana Roma bauzinguluka munzi wa Jerusalemu akukolomona zibeela zimwi zyabwaanda bwanguwo. (Luka 21:20) Aboobo, “cintu cisesemya” ciimvwi mubusena mociteelede, ibusena oobo ba Juda mbobabona kuti ‘mbusena busalala.’

Jesu wazumanana kusinsima kuti: “Kuyooba mapenzi mapati aatanacitikide kuzwa kumatalikilo aanyika kusikila sunu, alimwi kunyina naayooba limbi pe.” Mu 70 C.E., ba Roma banyonyoona Jerusalemu. Ikuzundwa alimwi akunyonyoonwa ‘kwamunzi uusalala’ waba Juda, kubikkilizya atempele lyanguwo, ngamapenzi mapati, oomo mobajaigwa bantu banji kapati. (Matayo 4:5; 24:21) Lunyonyooko oolu ndupati kapati kwiinda lunyonyooko luli loonse ilwakasikila munzi ooyu alimwi aba Juda, alimwi ngamamanino aabweende bwabukombi bwaba Juda mbobali kutobela kwamyaanda yamyaka minji. Aboobo, kuzuzikizyigwa kuli koonse kupati kwamajwi aabusinsimi aa Jesu ikuyakucitika kumbele kuyakuyoosya citaambiki.

LUSYOMO MUMAZUBA AAKASINSIMWA

Mubandi ngwajisi Jesu abaapostolo bakwe kujatikizya citondezyo cakubako kwakwe mu Bwami alimwi acamamanino aabweende bwazintu nkuucili, taunamana pe. Lino wabacenjezya kujatikizya kutobela “ba Kristo bakubeja abasinsimi bakubeja.” Waamba kuti aaba bayoosola ‘kweena nobaba basale.’ (Matayo 24:24) Pele ibasale aaba tabakeenwi pe. Ba Kristo bakubeja baboneka buyo kumeso aabantu kabajisi mibili yanyama. Mukwiimpana, kubako kwa Jesu takukabi kooko nkobakonzya kumubona bantu kajisi mubili wanyama.

Kaamba kujatikizya mapenzi mapati kwiinda, aayo aayakucitika kumamanino aabweende bwazintu oobu, Jesu waamba kuti: “Izuba liyoosizyigwa, awalo mwezi taukamuniki, alimwi nyenyeezi ziyooloka kuzwa kujulu, anguzu zyakujulu ziyoozungaanizyigwa.” (Matayo 24:29) Baapostolo ibali mukumvwa majwi aaya aayoosya tabazyi cini iciyakucitika, pele masimpe ngakuti eeci cinooli ciindi ciyoosya kapati.

Ino zintu eezyi ziyoosya iziyakucitika ziyakubajatikizya buti bantu? Jesu wati: “Bantu bayoonetuka akaambo kakuyoowa akulibilika zintu zilangilwa kucitika anyika, nkaambo nguzu zyakujulu ziyoozungaanizyigwa.” (Luka 21:26) Ncobeni, Jesu waamba ciindi ciyoosya kapati alimwi citanabwenwe kuzwa ciindi bantu nobakalengwa.

Icikulwaizya ncakuti, Jesu wabasalazyila baapostolo kuti tabali bantu boonse ibayakulila ciindi ‘Mwanaamuntu aakuboola kajisi nguzu abulemu bupati.’ (Matayo 24:30) Walaambide kale kuti Leza uyakubweza ntaamu “akaambo kabasale.” (Matayo 24:22) Aboobo, ino basikwiiya aaba ibasyomeka beelede kucita buti zyaakucitika zintu ziyoosya nzyaamba Jesu? Jesu wakulwaizya basikumutobela kuti: “Zintu eezyi zyaakutalika kucitika, amukaimikile akulanga mujulu, nkaambo lufwutuko lwanu lunooswenede afwaafwi.”—Luka 21:28.

Ino basikwiiya ba Jesu ibanakupona kuciindi eeci ncaasinsima bayakuzyiba buti kuti mamanino alaafwaafwi? Jesu wapa cikozyanyo camukuyu, ulaamba: “Mboyatalikila buyo kusyuuka mitabi yanguwo akuba amatuvwu, mulazyiba kuti mainza alaafwaafwi. Mbubonya buyo andinywe, mwaakubona zintu zyoonse eezyi, amukazyibe kuti ulaafwaafwi, uli amulyango. Ncobeni ndimwaambila kuti izyalani eeli talikamani pe kusikila zintu zyoonse eezyi zikacitike.”—Matayo 24:32-34.

 Aboobo, basikwiiya bakwe baakubona zibeela zyaandeene-andeene alimwi zinji zyacitondezyo kazizuzikizyigwa, beelede kuzyiba kuti mamanino alaafwaafwi. Kalailila basikwiiya ibanakupona kuciindi eeco citanabwenwe, Jesu waamba kuti:

“Kujatikizya buzuba oobo alimwi aciindi kunyina uuzyi pe, nobaba bangelo kujulu naba Mwana, pele buyo Taata alikke. Nkaambo mbubonya mazuba aa Nowa mbwaakabede, akwalo kubako kwa Mwanaamuntu mbokuyooba. Nkaambo mbubonya mbuli kumazuba aayo Zambangulwe kalitanaboola, bakali kulya akunywa, basankwa bakali kukwata abalo basimbi bakali kukwasyigwa kusikila buzuba Nowa mbwaakanjila mubwato, pele tiibakabikkila maano kusikila mane Zambangulwe lyakaboola akubatola boonse, mbubonya buyo akwalo kubako kwa Mwanaamuntu mbokuyooba.” (Matayo 24:36-39) Cintu eeci ncaabelesya Jesu mukupa cikozyanyo—nkokuti Zambangulwe lyakumazuba aa Nowa eelyo ilitakalubwi—lyakajatikizya nyika yoonse mboizulwa.

Cakutadooneka ibaapostolo aabo ibamuswiilide Jesu naambaula aa Cilundu ca Maolifa bazyiba kuti kuyandika kupakamana. Jesu wati: “Amulilingule nobeni kutegwa myoyo yanu itabi niilengaana akaambo kabulyato, bucakolwa akulibilika azintu zyamubuumi, eelyo buzuba oobo bukaile kumusikila kamutalibambilide mbuli kakole. Nkaambo buyoobasikila boonse aabo bakkala anyika yoonse. Aboobo amupakamane lyoonse, kamupaila mipailo yakukombelezya ciindi coonse kutegwa mukakonzye kufwutuka muzintu zyoonse eezyo zyeelede kucitika akwiima kumbele lya Mwanaamuntu.”—Luka 21:34-36.

Aawa Jesu wainduluka alimwi kutondezya kuti zintu nzyasinsima tazikajatikizyi buyo bantu basyoonto pe. Tali mukusinsima zintu iziyakucitika mumyaka misyoonto buyo iiboola kumbele alimwi iziyakujatikizya buyo munzi wa Jerusalemu naa cisi caba Juda. Peepe, ulimukwaamba zintu ‘iziyoosikila boonse aabo bakkala anyika yoonse.’

Waamba kuti basikwiiya bakwe bayooyandika kupakamana, kulangila alimwi akulibambila. Jesu wakankaizya makani aaya aakucenjezya kwiinda mukupa cikozyanyo acimwi, ulaamba: “Kamuzyiba kuti: Ikuti mwiniŋanda naakalizyi ciindi mubbi ncaakali kuboola, naatakoona akumulekela mubbi kuti anjile muŋanda yakwe. Aboobo, andinywe amulibambile, nkaambo Mwanaamuntu ulaboola aciindi ncomutayeeyeli.”—Matayo 24:43, 44.

Lino Jesu waambila basikwiiya bakwe ncobeelede kukkalwa moyo. Wabasyomezya kuti ciindi nobunooli mukuzuzikizyigwa businsimi bwakwe, kunooli “muzike” uupakamene alimwi musungu. Jesu wabelesya bukkale mbobakonzya kufwambaana kweezyeezya baapostolo bakwe, wati: “Ino mubwini, nguni muzike uusyomeka alimwi uucenjede ooyo simalelaakwe ngwaakasala kulanganya babelesi bamuŋanda yakwe, kuti kabapa cakulya cabo aciindi ceelede? Ulikkomene muzike ooyo ikuti simalelaakwe aakusika akamujane kacita oobo! Ncobeni ndimwaambila kuti, uyoomusala kulanganya lubono lwakwe loonse.” Pele ikuti “muzike” ooyo akabe amizeezo mibi akutalika kupenzya beenzinyina, simalelaakwe “uyoomupa cisubulo cipati.”—Matayo 24:45-51; amweezyanisye a Luka 12:45, 46.

Nokuba boobo, aawa Jesu tapandululi kuti kuyakuba kakamu kabasikumutobela ikayakuba amizeezo mibi. Aboobo, ino nciiyo nzi Jesu ncayanda kuti bamvwisye basikwiiya bakwe? Uyanda kuti bazumanane kupakamana akuba basungu, mbubonya mbwatiicisalazye mucikozyanyo acimbi.
