JEHOVA tanaakalenga nyika kakunyina makanze pe. “Wakaibumba kuti ikalwe bantu.” (Is. 45:18) Muntu ngwaakasaanguna kulenga, Adamu, wakalilondokede, alimwi Leza wakamupa munzi mubotu wakukkala—muunda wa Edeni. Cakutadooneka, Adamu wakali kukkomana kubona masamu mabotu, tulonga, alimwi abanyama basiyene-siyene. Pele kuli cintu cimwi ciyandika kapati ncaakabulide. Jehova wakatondezya ncaakabulide ciindi naakaamba kuti: “Tacili cibotu kuti muntu akale alike pe.

Ncobeni oyu ulijisi zifuwa mbubonya mbuli zifuwa zyangu anyama mbubonya mbuli nyama yangu. Uleelede kuulikwa mukaintu, nkaambo wazwa mumuntu.”—Matl. 2:18-23.

Alimwi buya, “Adamu wakaulika izina lyamukaakwe kuti ngu-Eva, nkaambo mbebanyina baumi boonse.” (Matl. 3:20) Eelo kaka eeci cakali cipego citaliboteli Leza ncaakapa banabukwetene aaba bakusaanguna! Bakali kukonzya kuzyala bana balondokede.  Kwiinda mukucita boobo, nyika yoonse yakali kuyakuba paradaiso iizwide bantu balondokede ibakali kunakweendelezya zilenge zyuumi zyoonse.—Matl. 1:27, 28.

(Ciy. 12:9; Matl. 3:1-6) Ino kuzanga ooku kwabajatikizya buti bamakaintu? Milimo nzi njobakacita bamakaintu bakaindi ibakali kumvwida Leza? Nkaambo nzi bamakaintu Banakristo bamazuba aano ncobakonzya kwaambwa kuti ‘ninkamu impati’?—Int. 68:11.

Boonse bobilo, Adamu a Eva bakabisya, pele Adamu ngonguwe wakapegwa mulandu akaambo kakulubizya ooko. Nkakaambo kaako, mwaapostolo Paulo wakalemba kuti ‘mbubonya cibi mbocakanjila munyika kwiinda muli Adamu alufwu kwiinda mucibi.’—Lom. 5:12.

5. Ncinzi casinizyigwa akaambo kakuti Leza wazumizya kuti bantu balyeendelezye kwaciindi cili mbocibede?

Nyika yoonse mbwiizulwa, 30 pesenti yabamakaintu bakaamba kuti bakatundululwa abamaalumi. Mumasena amwi, bamaalumi balapegwa zyoolwe akaambo kakuti bayeeyelwa kuti baakukomena mbabayakulanganya bazyali babo bacembeede abamakaapanyina. Muzisi zimwi, basimbi babonwa kuti mbana batayandwi, alimwi bana basimbi banji balasoogwa kwiinda mukugwisya mada kwiinda bana basankwa.

Mbwababona bamakaintu Jehova kulatondezyegwa munzila njaakalenga Eva, wakamulenga kalondokede alimwi kajisi bube bubotu kutegwa abe mugwasyi mubotu wa Adamu kutali kuba muzike pe. Aaka nkakaambo kambi ikakapa kuti kumamanino aabuzuba bwakulenga bwacisambomwe Leza ‘wakabona kuti zyoonse nzyaakacita zyabota loko.’ (Matl. 1:31) Inzya, “zyoonse” Jehova nzyaakalenga zyakali ‘zibotu  loko.’ Wakabapa ntalisyo mbotu bamaalumi alimwi abamakaintu!

(Jud. 16) Alimwi taciyeeyelwi kwaamba kuti Sara muka Abrahamu mukaintu iwakajisi bulemu kapati wakali kukonzya kumutongookela mulumi wakwe ciindi nobakasiya munzi wabo mubotu wa Uri alimwi akuba bamuzwakule akukkala mumatente mucisi cabantu. Muciindi caboobo, ‘Sala wakaswiilila Abulahamu, akumwiita kuti mwami.’ (1 Pe. 3:6) Amulange alimwi kujatikizya Rebeka, walo iwakali cilongezyo kuzwa kuli Jehova alimwi iwakali mukaintu mubotu kapati. Nkakaambo kaako tacigambyi kuzyiba kuti Izaka mulumaakwe “wakamuyandisya.

11. Mbuti bamakaintu bobilo basikutumbusya iba Hebrayo mbobakatondezya busicamba?

Muciindi caboobo, bwakali kuyakupegwa “mumaanza aamwanakazi” mwalo Leza mwaakali kuyakwaaba mupati wabasikalumamba bana Kanana Sisera. Eeci ncicakacitika ciindi mukaintu iwatakali  muna Israyeli Jaeli naakamujaya.—Bab. 4:4-9, 17-22.

13. Ino Bbaibbele litwaambila nzi kujatikizya Abigayeli?

13 Abigayeli awalo wakali mukaintu umwi mubotu iwakali kupona mumwaanda wamyaka wa 11 B.C.E. Wakali mupampu kakuli mulumi wakwe Nabala wakali silunya, uutakwe mulimo alimwi mufwubafwuba. (1 Sam. 25:2, 3, 25) Davida alimwi abaalumi bakwe bakakwabilila zivwubwa zya Nabala kwaciindi cili mbocibede, pele nobakalomba cakulya, “wakabakalalila loko” alimwi kunyina ncaakabapa. Eeci cakamunyemya kapati Davida cakuti wakali kuyanda kujaya Nabala ababelesi bakwe. Ciindi Abigayeli naakaamvwa makani aaya, wakabweza cakulya awaini akutolela Davida abaalumi bakwe, kutegwa kutabi nkondo.

Nguwe wakutuma sunu kuzoondicinga.” (1 Sam. 25:32) Nabala naakafwa, Davida wakamukwata Abigayeli.—1 Sam. 25:37-42.

14. Muumulimo nzi bana basimbi ba Salumu mobakatola lubazu, alimwi mbuti bamakaintu Banakristo mbobabeleka munzila iikozyenye mazuba aano?

Bulambo bwamunzi bwakayakululwa mu 455 B.C.E. kwiinda mukusololelwa a Nehemiya. Akati kabantu ibakagwasyilizya kuyakulula bulambo kwakali bana basimbi ba Salumu, mweendelezi wacooko cimwi camu Jerusalemu. (Neh. 3:12) Bakabeleka mulimo waansi cakulyaaba. Eelo kaka tulabalumba bamakaintu Banakristo ibagwasyilizya calukkomano mumilimo ya Leza yamayake iisiyene-siyene mazuba aano!

BAMAKAINTU BAMUMWAANDA WAMYAKA WAKUSAANGUNA IBAKALI KUMVWIDA LEZA

Eelo kaka cakali coolwe citaliboteli cakuba banyina mwaalumi mupati kapati iwakaponede anyika!—Mt. 1:18-25.

16. Amupe cikozyanyo citondezya mbwaakali kubabona bamakaintu Jesu.

16 Jesu wakali siluzyalo kuli bamakaintu. Mucikozyanyo, amuyeeye buyo kujatikizya mukaintu iwakali kuciswa kalobola myaka iili 12. Kali kusyule lya Jesu, wakainda akati kankamu yabantu kuunka kuli Jesu akujata cikobela ca Jesu. Muciindi cakumunyemena, caluzyalo, Jesu wakamwaambila kuti: “Mwanaangu, lusyomo lwako lwakuponya.

Kutilwa kwamuuya uusalala ooku kwakalaambilidwe kale mumajwi aakuti: ‘Mebo nde Jehova njootila Muuya wangu abantu boonse. Bana banu balombe abasimbi bayoosinsima . . . Abalo bazike abacinkombwa njoobatilila Muuya wangu.’ (Joel. 2:28, 29) Kwiinda mucintu eeci icakacitika camaleele mubuzuba bwa Pentekoste, Leza wakatondezya kuti wakacileka kugwasya bana Israyeli ibakazanga akutalika kugwasya ba “Isilayeli ba Leza,” balo ibabikkilizya bamaalumi alimwi abamakaintu.

Mubwini, mbubwenya mbuli mbocakabede kuli bana Israyeli bakaindi, Jehova ulabajatilila kujanza lyalulyo akwaamba kuti: “Utayoowi. Njookugwasya.”—Is. 41:10-13.
