Jesus Establishes The New Covenant Among the Gentiles 耶穌在外邦人中訂立新的盟約

Speaker: Dr. Joel Linton
Scripture: Acts 11:1-18 使徒行傳 11:1-18

• 在舊約中,除非你隸屬於以色列,否則你在上帝的子民中無份。
In the Old Covenant, unless you were part of Israel, you were not part of
God’s people.

•對於使徒行傳第 10 章中所記載的奇事,上帝的其中一個目的是幫助猶太人瞭解上帝 正在呼召外邦人潔淨而能夠被接納。
One of God’s purposes for the miraculous events in Acts chapter 10 was to
help the Jews see that God was now calling the Gentiles clean and acceptable.

• 從舊約到新約的歷史過程中,耶穌運用大能及奇事對三種對象澆灌下祂的靈,包括 猶太人、撒瑪利亞人和外邦人。
In the transition from the Old Covenant to the New Covenant, Jesus poured
out His Spirit with power and miraculous signs in three stages: on the Jews, on the Samaritans, and on the Gentiles.

• 彼得無法否定上帝對外邦人的接納,因此以水為他們施洗,這是新約的表徵
Peter could not deny God’s inclusion of the Gentiles so he gave them water
baptism, the sign of the New Covenant.

• 我們不像哥尼流一樣活在舊約和新約中間的過渡期。我們則是有聖靈新約的工,在信主那一刻起就在我們心裡運行。
Unlike Cornelius, we are not living in a time of transition between the Old
Covenant and the New Covenant. We have the Holy Spirit’s New Covenant ministry at work in us from the time we first believe.

上帝一般用來拯救罪人的媒介 The Ordinary Means God Uses to Save Sinners

Speaker: Dr. Joel Linton
Scripture: Acts 10

大綱 (Outline):

1. 哥尼流雖然是羅馬帝國中的精英,但也接受羞辱,被視為不潔淨的外邦人。他意識到唯一的出路就是,聖經中的上帝是唯一的真神。

Although Cornelius was an elite in the Roman Empire, he accepted the humiliation of being treated as an unclean Gentile. Cornelius realized that there is no where else to go: the God of the Bible is the One True God.

2. 如果你尋求上帝、來到祂的面前懺悔你的罪,你是怎樣的人並不重要。如果你藉由耶穌基督,在上帝的憐憫下歸信,上帝會垂聽你的禱告並予以回應。

It does not matter what kind of person you are, if you seek God and come to Him in repentance of your sins, if you come in faith in his mercy through Jesus Christ, God will hear your prayers and respond.

3. 上帝不僅回應禱告,而且透過上帝子民的禱告來動工。

God responds to prayer, and God works through the prayers of His people.

4. 上帝不只透過子民一般的禱告來動工,也透過子民一般的話語來動工。上帝呼召基督徒要傳遞簡單、明確的福音訊息。

Not only does God work through the ordinary prayers of His people, God works through the ordinary words of His people. God calls Christians to give a clear and simple Gospel message.
