第十一章

1 有一根葦子賜給我,當作量度的杖;且有話說:「起來!將神的殿和祭壇,並在殿中禮拜的人都量一量。2 只是殿外的院子要留下不用量,因為這是給了外邦人的;他們要踐踏聖城四十二個月。3 我要使我那兩個見證人,穿著毛衣,傳道一千二百六十天。」4 他們就是那兩棵橄欖樹,兩個燈臺,立在世界之主面前的。

 

默想:

  1. 這兩位無名的見證人,有著舊約先知以利亞和摩西的特徵。自古以來,摩西代表律法的頒佈者,以利亞代表先知預言的宣告者。兩位都要扭轉人類的注意,指向基督是主與救主。律法與預言兩者缺一不可,而基督同時成全了律法與預言,成為完美的見證。
  2. 教會在世界上是基督的見證,我們每個人都是基督身體的一個部分。我有沒有學效這兩個見證人,在我的生活小範圍內,作基督忠心的見證人?

 

禱告與筆錄:

繼續安靜在神面前,與神對話,並聆聽祂對我說的話。將心中的思想(心得),或是與神的禱告,記錄在「靈程筆記簿」上面。

 

Chapter 11

1I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, "Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, and count the worshipers there. 2But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. 3And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth." 4These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth.

Meditation

  1. The two unnamed witnesses have the characteristics of the Old Testament prophets Elijah and Moses.  Through the centuries, these two men have accumulated symbolic greatness – Moses being the giver of Law and Elijah the giver of prophecy.  They direct the attention of all humanity to the Christ as Lord and Saviour.  There can be no complete witness when either Law or Prophecy is omitted, for Christ is both the fulfillment of the Law and the fulfillment of prophecy.
  2. The Christian church stands in this world as a witness for Christ.  You and I are members of the body of Christ.  Am I following the steps of the two witnesses, in my smaller ways, as a faithful witness for Christ?

Prayer & Journaling:

Stay with God for a little longer.  Continue to converse with God and listen to what he wants to tell me.  Then write down any thought and/or prayer in the 2012 “Spiritual Journal” book.
