启示录19 Revelation

章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22

19:1 此后,我听见好像群众在天上大声说,哈利路亚,(就是赞美耶和华的意思)救恩,荣耀,权能,都属乎我们的神。

And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:

19:2 他的判断是真实公义的。因他判断了那用淫行败坏世界的大淫妇,并且向淫妇讨流仆人血的罪,给他们伸冤。

For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

19:3 又说,哈利路亚。烧淫妇的烟往上冒,直到永永远远。

And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.

19:4 那二十四位长老与四活物,就俯伏敬拜坐宝座的神,说,阿们,哈利路亚。

And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.

19:5 有声音从宝座出来说,神的众仆人哪,凡敬畏他的,无论大小,都要赞美我们的神。

And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

19:6 我听见好像群众的声音,众水的声音,大雷的声音,说,哈利路亚。因为主我们的神,全能者,作王了。

And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

19:7 我们要欢喜快乐,将荣耀归给他。因为羔羊婚娶的时候到了,新妇也自己豫备好了。

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

19:8 就蒙恩得穿光明洁白的细麻衣,这细麻衣就是圣徒所行的义。

And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

19:9 天使吩咐我说,你要写上,凡被请赴羔羊之婚筵的有福了。又对我说,这是神真实的话。

And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

19:10 我就俯伏在他脚前要拜他。他说,千万不可。我和你并你那些为耶稣作见证的弟兄同是作仆人的。你要敬拜神。因为预言中的灵意,乃是为耶稣作见证。

And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

19:11 我观看,见天开了。有一匹白马。骑在马上的,称为诚信真实。他审判争战都按着公义。

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

19:12 他的眼睛如火焰,他头上戴着许多冠冕。又有写着的名字,除了他自己没有人知道。

His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

19:13 他穿着溅了血的衣服。他的名称为神之道。

And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

19:14 在天上的众军,骑着白马,穿着细麻衣,又白又洁,跟随他。

And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

19:15 有利剑从他口中出来,可以击杀列国。他必用铁杖辖管他们。(辖管原文作牧)并要踹全能神烈怒的酒榨。

And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

19:16 在他衣服和大腿上,有名写着说,万王之王,万主之主。

And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

19:17 我又看见一位天使站在日头中,向天空所飞的鸟,大声喊着说,你们聚集来赴神的大筵席。

And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

19:18 可以吃君王与将军的肉,壮士与马和骑马者的肉,并一切自主的为奴的,以及大小人民的肉。

That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

19:19 我看见那兽,和地上的君王,并他们的众军,都聚集,要与骑白马的并他的军兵争战。

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

19:20 那兽被擒拿,那在兽面前曾行奇事,迷惑受兽印记,和拜兽像之人的假先知,也与兽同被擒拿。他们两个就活活的被扔在烧着硫磺的火湖里。

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

19:21 其馀的被骑白马者口中出来的剑杀了。飞鸟都吃饱了他们的肉。

And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

启示录19参考

放声赞美,我……
19:1 凡是爱神的人都会衷心赞美神。你愈认识他,愈了解他所作成的事,你便愈觉得要赞美他。赞美是真正敬拜的中心,当你认识神是谁,了解他怎样爱你,就自然流露出对神的赞美。

天军天使歌颂神的情形──
19:1-8 “天上的群众”开始为了神的胜利而唱出赞美神的大合唱(19:1-3),接著有二十四位长老(参4:4)加入这大合唱(19:4)。最后,天上的大合唱团再一次赞美神──羔羊的婚期近了(19:6-8;参太25:1-13)。

新妇与大淫妇,可真是一个很大的对比!你看二者的分别……
19:7-8 现在到了人类历史的最高潮──邪恶的人受审判,羔羊和他的新妇(教会)结婚了。教会包括了历代以来所有忠心的信徒。新娘穿著光明洁白的细麻衣,与前两章的大淫妇所穿的俗艳服饰形成强烈的对比(参17:4;18:16)。新妇所穿的是圣徒的义行,这不是信徒藉遵守宗教礼仪换来的义,乃是回应基督的拯救而得的义(7:9, 14)。

为目前景象所慑欲向天使下拜,为甚么不可以?我会不会这样做?这很难说……
19:10 天使不肯接受约翰俯伏敬拜,因为只有神才配受敬拜。我们也容易像约翰一样,被这些预言性的壮观情景所慑服,但耶稣才是神的启示和救赎计划的中心。当你阅读启示录的时候,不要只顾沉迷于那些奇观异象的细节中;要记住所有的异象都是指著一个主题:耶稣要胜过罪恶,得到最终的胜利!

19:11 “诚信真实”这名字和第18章中所描述的虚伪不义的巴比伦成了强烈的对比。

天开了,约翰看见的异象又再次转移……
19:11-21 约翰的异象再一次转移。天开了,耶稣出现了,这一次他并不是羔羊,而是骑在白马(象徵胜利)上的战士。耶稣第一次来到世上是作为赎罪祭的羔羊,但他再来的时候就是要执行审判的征服者与君王(参帖后1:7-10)。他第一次降临带来赦罪,第二次降临却带来审判。神与邪恶之间的战阵已经摆好,这世界正等待君王踏上战场。

除了他自己,还有谁可以知道他?可以正确表达他?
19:12 虽然耶稣被称为“诚信真实”(19:11)、“神的道”(19:13)和“万王之王、万主之主”(19:16),但这里说,没有单一个名字能够正确地表达他。他实在比任何人所能描述和想像的还要伟大。

万王之王,万主之主,我们的神就是如此!那其他所谓的王呢?
19:16 这个称号显示神的王权。世界上大部分的人都叩拜那兽,即敌基督,他们相信它拥有一切的权力。但突然之间,基督骑著马,和他的天使大军从天上降临──他是“万王之王、万主之主”。他的出现显示虚假势力的结局到了。

“神的大筵席”,是怎样一个筵席?
19:17 这个“神的大筵席”与羔羊的婚筵(19:9)形成一个强烈的对比。一个是庆祝;另一个却是蹂躏。

世纪之战将要开始!你知道自己站在哪边?人常以为自己可以挑战神,你会吗?
19:19-21 战阵排列好了,世界有史以来最激烈的战争快要开始。那兽(敌基督)和假先知召集起地上在其统治下的政权和军队,他们以为是自愿来到战场,实际上是神召集他们来到战场,好击败他们。他们以为可以攻击神,显出他们的骄傲和反叛已经腐蚀了他们的思想。他们无论如何也敌不过神,因为耶稣为世人的罪死在十字架上,并且从死里复活的时候,他已经得胜了。邪恶的领袖立刻被俘掳,并接受惩罚,而邪恶的军队立刻被歼灭。

恶人的结局,不会是我的结局吧……
19:20 硫磺火湖是恶人的结局,它并不是19章1节所说的无底坑。敌基督和假先知被抛进硫磺火湖里。稍后他们的领袖撒但也要被抛在那儿(20:10)。最后,死亡和阴间也被扔进火湖里去(20:14)。接著,凡名字没有记在“生命册”上的,都要接受同一的命运(20:15)。
