4229. 第32

最后的审判(续)

我们从第三卷(系指拉丁文的第3卷)开始解释主在马太福音 24章关于最后审判的预言. 这些解释被放在了那一卷最后几章的开头部分,目前已解释到31节(参看3353-3356, 3486-3489, 3650-3655, 3897-3901, 4056-4060节).

概括地说,主的这些预言的内义从所给出的解释很清楚看出来,即祂预言了教会的逐渐毁灭和最终一个新教会的建立,其次序如下:

⑴教会成员不再知道何为良善与真理,反而开始彼此争论它们.

⑵他们蔑视它们.

⑶他们从心里不承认它们.

⑷他们亵渎它们.

⑸由于信之真理和爱之良善仍存留在某些被称为“选民”的人当中,故经上描述了那时信之真理所具有的状态.

⑹然后描述了仁的状态.

⑺最后论述了一个新教会的开始,由最后所解释的那些话来表示,即:

祂要差遣祂的使者,用号筒的大声,将祂的选民从四风,从天这边到天那边,都招聚了来. (马太福音 24:31)

这些话表示一个新教会的开始(参看4060e节).

4056. The preliminary sections of Genesis 26-30 in Volume Three explained what the Lord has said and foretold in Matthew 24 about the Close of the Age, or the Last Judgement. Those sections covered verse 3 through to verse 28, and now the statements next in line come up for explanation. The preliminary section of this chapter deals with what is stated in verses 29-31 in the following words,

But immediately after the affliction of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn; and they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory; and He will send out His angels with a trumpet and a loud voice, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other end of them.
