Confessing Jesus (Chinese/English)

Matthew 10:32-33-Whosoever, therefore, shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven.  But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven.

马太福音10“凡在人面前认我的,我在我天上的父面前也必认他;凡在人面前不认我的,我在我天上的父面前也必不认他。”

Confessing Jesus
承认耶稣

Does this mean that we can lose our Salvation? NO
这意味着我们会失去救恩吗?不

As with everything in scripture, we cannot take one verse in isolation.
和经文中每件事一样,我们不能孤立地看一节经文。

I was thinking very deeply about this and was led to Romans 10:9-10 that reads as follows: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto Salvation.

对此我深入地思考过,让我们读罗马书 10:9-10,经文如下,
你若口里认耶稣为主,心里信神叫他从死里复活,就必得救。
因为人心里相信,就可以称义;口里承认,就可以得救。

The confession of sin and acknowledging the Lordship of Jesus Christ and who Christ is, is linked to believing in your heart. Salvation is the coming together of inward belief and outward confession.
承认罪,认耶稣基督为主,圣灵就依着信与我们相连。救恩随同内在信仰和外部承认一起到来。

Every time we fail, like Peter, every time we deny Christ and fail to share Him, Jesus accepts us before His Father; He is praying for us.
每次我们像彼得一样失败,每次我们否认基督,不与别人分享他,耶稣都在父神面前接纳我们,他在为我们祷告。

In 1 Corinthians 12:3, we read these words: Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus says is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

在哥林多前书12章,我们读到这些话。所以我告诉你们:被神的灵感动的,没有说耶稣是可咒诅的;若不是被圣灵感动的,也没有能说耶稣是主的。

To honestly confess Christ is to speak words inspired by the Holy Spirit-the natural man cannot say these words, only the spiritual man can.
诚实地认基督就是讲述被圣灵所鼓舞的话…普通人不会讲说这些话语,只有圣灵充满之人才会。

In Verses 29-31, Jesus is stating that we are so much more valuable than anything else on the planet. That is the context of these verses, and afterward, in verses 34-36, Jesus is saying that He has come to disrupt/divide families, not to bring families together. Some families are all Christians, and we bless God for that, but for many, including myself and Helen, we are the only Christians in them. That costs us, but when we confess Jesus, He reveals us to His Father, at the point of Salvation, when we say, Jesus, You are mine. He says to His Father, this one is Mine, and Father, he is Yours. He/she has come and confessed to Me, and I have decided to show unto this world that he is Mine, and now I have the pleasure of confessing He/she before you.

在29-31节中,耶稣说我们比这世上其他人和事更加珍贵。之后在34-36节,耶稣说他来会使家庭纷争/分裂,而不是使家庭和睦。一些家庭成员都是基督徒,我们因神为他们祝福,但许多家庭,包括我自己和海伦,我们是家庭中仅有的基督徒。那让我们感到很累,但当我们承认耶稣时,他在父跟前证明我们,在救恩到来时,当我们说,耶稣你是我的,他会对父神说,这位是我的,父啊,他是你的。他/她已经来了,承认了我,我已经决定向世界显示他是我的,如今我很乐意在你面前承认他/她。

What a wonderful honor!

多么美妙的荣誉!

God bless you.

愿神祝福你
