Proverbs 8 – Tree of Life from the Holy Spirit 箴言 8 – 从圣灵而生的生命树  

Friday, 23rd September 2022

Rev Daniel Xi An Poon

Section One V1-21 Humble and Receive Wisdom

V1-2 Wisdom and understanding are seeking, calling people to receive them and to listen to them. They are looking for those who do not understand God, and they are looking for the foolish. We are all foolish, because we do not know God. 

If people knew God, then they wouldn’t have sinned after Moses went up to the mountain. We don’t know God, and we are so easy to fall into temptation, therefore we must receive the wisdom and understanding though the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit, we won’t be able to understand the Word of God.

V10 Wisdom and understanding are there to help us know the Word of God. Our spirit must be strong. We should not just rely on the knowledge because only the Holy Spirit can really reveal the truth to us.

V15-16 The Holy Spirit comes for us to convict ourselves for sin, for righteousness and for judgement. Everything is from the Tree of Life, and through the Holy Spirit we can produce its fruits.

V20-21 We are easy to have the mindset that when we follow God we will lose our wealth. But it’s the opposite, when we are willing to love God first, He will fill our treasuries and we will lack nothing.

Section Two V22-31 The Origin of Wisdom

Before everything was created, the Holy Spirit was working together with God. Wisdom knows it all and that’s why Jesus gave it to us. But we still have too much lustful desires, greed, unforgiveness, bitterness, anger… that make us unable to receive the wisdom and understanding, which are are fruits of the Holy Spirit.

Section Three V32-36 Only By Being Faithful to the Holy Spirit

The first thing in the morning should be seeking the Holy Spirit, because only He can help us to understand the Word of God. The Bread of Life is the Word of God received through the Holy Spirit. The Bread is the Word and the Life is the Holy Spirit. When we seek the Bread of Life, then we will receive life.

In Matthew 12:31-32, Jesus told us that every sin can be forgiven apart from blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. Do we treasure and uphold the time we speak in tongues and seek the Holy Spirit? This is the end times and we must let go of everything to follow God. Be faithful and send time to receive the proverbs from the Holy Spirit.

箴言 8 – 从圣灵而生的生命树                                 

2022年9月23日 星期五

潘锡安牧师

在这个末世的时刻,神跟我们说一件最重要的事情。我们现在来晨祷时先用敬拜和方言祷告让我们的灵敞开,得以领受神话语的奥秘。神在箴言第八章给我们上好的礼物,是他在建造伊甸园时就预备给每一个他所创造的儿女,就是从圣灵而生的生命树。

一、v.1-21 谦卑得智慧

V1-5 智慧和聪明都在发声寻找那些不认识神的“愚蒙人”。我们其实都是愚蒙人,唯有靠着圣灵才能认识神。耶稣基督离世升天前,特别嘱咐门徒在耶路撒冷等候圣灵降临,因为耶稣不在后,他们需要智慧和聪明。我们只有靠着圣灵才能明白神给我们的智慧聪明。

V6-11 智慧和聪明是帮助我们明白神话语的。圣灵挑旺我们,让我们不再只是头脑发达、灵里虚弱。

V12-13 这就是生命树的气息,圣灵来是让我们为罪为义为审判自己责备自己。唯有谦卑在生命树的气息里,我们才能得到智慧和聪明。

V15-18 这一切的美好都在从圣灵而来的智慧和聪明里,不在我们自己的知识能力里,而是生命树气息下的谦卑顺服、舍己利他。

V19-21 这就是生命树所结出的果子。我们以为走神的路就是贫穷的,但是当我们愿意在生命树下放手让神带领,常常为罪为义为审判自己责备自己时,神就使爱他的人“承受货财,并充满他们的府库”。当我们愿意追求圣灵、爱圣灵的时候,我们就得到一切所需要的。

二、v.22-31 智慧的由来

V22-26 我们的神是圣父圣子圣灵的三一神。圣灵在万物被造之前就已经有了。

V30 圣灵作为“工师”,洞悉万物,因为没有一个工头不知道自己所盖的房子。当我们得着耶稣所应许给我们的圣灵时,世上还有什么事能难倒我们呢?然而,我们里面有太多情欲、不饶恕、愤怒、贪婪,所以需要在方言祷告中让我们能够放下自己里面不属神的东西,让我们的灵强壮起来。智慧和聪明都是属于圣灵的果子。

三、v.32-36 唯有忠于圣灵

V32-34 每一天的清晨,我们放弃能够贪睡的时间,先来渴慕圣灵,借着圣灵明白神的话,有“灵”又有“粮”,这对我们才是有益的。

V35 我们追求圣灵、灵粮,是能够得到“生命”的!我们愿意花功夫、花时间去追求圣灵吗,还是常常用生活很忙当拒绝的借口?

V36 在马太福音12:31-32 耶稣说过,亵渎圣灵的罪是永远都得不到赦免的。所以当我们亵渎圣灵,我们的永生就在死亡里面了。我们看重方言祷告、追求圣灵的时间吗?让我们愿意放下一起来追求圣灵,单单让圣灵带领我们,在生命树的气息下等候神给我们的预备,聆听神话语的真理。
