• Christ and Church Life and Building Spirit and Bride


    As a lover of Christ and a pursuer of truth, I write down my joys, memories and reflections.

    May God lead us all into the secret of His presence, and build us into the oneness of His body in love.

万邦的神 The God of nations

In the original Greek language, “gentiles” is the same word for “nations.” Praise God that we gentiles who were not of His people shall receive His grace and salvation.

1:16 既然乐意将祂儿子启示在我里面,叫我把祂当作福音传在外邦人中,我就即刻没有与血肉之人商量,
To reveal His Son in me that I might announce Him as the gospel among the Gentiles, immediately I did not confer with flesh and blood,

9:24 这器皿就是我们这蒙祂所召的,不但从犹太人中,也从外邦人中,这有什么不可
Even us, whom He has also called, not only from among the Jews but also from among the Gentiles?

9:30 这样,我们可说什么?那未曾追求义的外邦人,反得着了义,就是本于信的义。
What then shall we say? That the Gentile

11:11-12 这样,我说,他们失脚是要他们跌倒么?绝对不是!反倒因他们的过失,救恩便临到外邦人,好惹动他们妒忌。若他们的过失成为世人的富足,他们的缺乏成为外邦人的富足,何况他们的丰满?
I say then, Have they stumbled so as to fall? Absolutely not! But by their misstep salvation has come to the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy. But if their misstep has become riches for the world, and their loss, riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their fullness be!

15:9-11 并叫外邦人,因着神的怜悯荣耀神,如经上所记:“因此我要在外邦中颂扬你,歌颂你的名。”又说,“外邦人啊,你们当与祂的百姓一同快乐。”又说,“万邦啊,你们都当赞美主,愿万民都称赞祂。”
And that the Gentiles should glorify God for His mercy, as it is written, “Therefore I will extol You among the Gentiles, and I will sing praise to Your name.” And again he says, “Rejoice, Gentiles, with His people.” And again, “Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and let all the peoples speak praise to Him.”

16:26    这奥秘如今显明出来,且照永远之神的命令,藉着众申言者所写的,指示万国,使他们顺从信仰。
But has now been manifested, and through the prophetic writings, according to the command of the eternal God, has been made known to all the Gentiles for the obedience of faith;

Apostle of the Gentiles
11:13    我是对你们外邦人说的,因我是外邦人的使徒,所以荣耀我的职事,
But I am speaking to you, the Gentiles. Inasmuch therefore as I am an apostle of the Gentiles, I glorify my ministry,

15:16 使我为外邦人作基督耶稣的仆役,作神福音勤奋的祭司,叫所献上的外邦人,在圣灵里得以圣别,可蒙悦纳
That I might be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles, a laboring priest of the gospel of God, in order that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, having been sanctified in the Holy Spirit.

Gentiles Hope
15:12    又有以赛亚说,“将来有耶西的根,就是那兴起来要治理外邦的,外邦人都要寄望于祂。”
And again, Isaiah says, “There shall be the root of Jesse, even He who rises to rule the Gentiles; on Him will the Gentiles hope.”

The fullness of the Gentiles
11:25    弟兄们,我不愿意你们不知道这奥秘,(恐怕你们自以为精明,)就是以色列人有几分硬心,直到外邦人的数目添满了,
For I do not want you, brothers, to be ignorant of this mystery (lest you be wise in yourselves), that hardness has come upon Israel in part, until the fullness of the Gentiles comes in;

The churches of the Gentiles
16:4    他们为我的性命,将自己的颈项置于度外,不但我感谢他们,就是外邦的众召会也感谢他们;
Who risked their own necks for my life, to whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles;

The blessing of the nations
17:5    你的名不要再叫亚伯兰,要叫亚伯拉罕,因为我已立你作多国的父。
Your name shall no longer be called Abram, But your name shall be Abraham; For I have made you the father of a multitude of nations.

18:18    亚伯拉罕必要成为又大又强的国,并且地上的万国都必因他得福
Since Abraham will indeed become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth will be blessed in him?

22:18    并且地上万国,都必因你的后裔得福;因为你听从了我的话。
And in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.

26:4    我要使你的后裔繁增,如同天上的星那样多,又要将这些地都赐给你的后裔;并且地上万国必因你的后裔得福;
And I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven and will give to your seed all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth will be blessed,

35:11    神又对他说,我是全足的神;你要繁衍增多,将来有一国,有多民从你而生,又有君王从你腰中而出。
And God said to him, I am the All-sufficient God: Be fruitful and multiply; A nation and a company of nations shall come from you, And kings shall come forth from your loins.
