蒙福密碼122
122 The Code of Blessing


講員:張恩年牧師 Pastor Joshua

一、與基督同作萬有之首


以弗所書,我讀過很多遍,每次讀也有不明所以的感覺;感謝神,今天可以與大家一同打開第一章,解開這個密碼,是新的領受,更是我牧會多年至今才領受的。


蒙福密碼122,就是指教會與基督同作萬有之首,我們與基督一同作王,我們是宇宙的頭,今天神要我們成為萬有之首。


1.知道神


「又將萬有服在他的腳下,使他為教會作萬有之首。」(弗1:22)


從前都只是看到「基督是萬有之首」,但因著神不斷開啟,今天我們知道,我們也是萬有之首。


弗1:15-17保羅為我們祈禱,他知道我們軟弱,他求神賜下智慧和啟示的靈,好讓我們真知道神。我們若沒有聖靈的啟示就不知道神。當我領受聖靈後再讀這段經文,當我的生命進到某個階段,我開始明白神給我的啟示,開始運作神給我的權柄時,我漸漸明白,多知道神。


2.知道神對教會的旨意


真知道神的意思是指明白神對教會的旨意。神要我們知道祂有何等偉大、豐富、慈愛;知道祂可以行神蹟。祂不單要我們知道祂很偉大,讓人讚歎祂的偉大;祂要祂的偉大與我們息息相關。所以保羅接下來禱告,要教會知道神的旨意。「並且照明你們心中的眼睛,使你們知道他的恩召有何等指望,他在聖徒中得的基業,有何等豐盛的榮耀。」(弗1:18 )


a.神的恩召


神呼召我們,是要我們知道祂的旨意。原來神對我們的呼召有一個盼望,我們都只不過是軟弱的人。神要我們知道,我們今天成為教會,祂對我們有何等的盼望。


b.神的基業


「並且照明你們心中的眼睛,使你們知道他的恩召有何等指望,他在聖徒中得的基業,有何等豐盛的榮耀。」(弗1:18 )


我們要真知道祂,認識祂,知道神對我們的恩召有何等指望;也要知道祂在信徒中所得的基業,有何等豐盛的榮耀。我們要知道,祂在信徒中,就是在教會,祂要得的基業。神對我們有盼望的恩召,有榮耀豐富的基業,這都是神要在我們當中得到的。


c.神的能力


「並知道他向我們這信的人所顯的能力,是何等浩大。」(弗1:19)


神對教會的旨意是包括祂對我們信的人所顯的能力。我們要知道神對教會、對我們每個人所顯的能力是何等浩大,與我們有莫大關係。


這能力就是祂在基督身上所運行的。第20節「就是照他在基督身上所運行的大能大力」,祂的大能大力是勝過死亡,叫基督從死裡復活,並叫祂在天上坐在自己的右邊。當基督坐在右邊時,是超過一切「執政的、掌權的、有能的、主治的,和一切有名的」,就是超過一切靈界的掌權者。神讓我們知道祂的能力是足以讓基督從死裡復活,並且坐在祂的右邊,勝過靈界的一切。「不但是今世的,連來世的也都超過了」(21節)神要我們知道祂有這種能力,而這種能力是透過基督顯明給我們的,就是勝過死亡,坐在天上超過一切靈界的、地上的、有名的、今世的和來世的能力。神要教會知道祂有這種能力,教會可以經歷這能力。死亡和地上任何權勢也不能轄制我們。


d.使基督給教會萬有之首


「又將萬有服在他的腳下,使他為教會作萬有之首。教會是他的身體,是那充滿萬有者所充滿的。」(弗1:22-23)這是打開以弗所書的鑰節,我們若不明白這兩節經文,很難明白第一章在說甚麼;也很難明白甚麼是恩召的指望、基業的豐富榮耀和神何等浩大的能力。原來神的心意,是要叫教會知道祂的旨意使教會作萬有之首。基督是萬有之首,教會在基督裡也成為萬有之首。


這就是蒙福122的密碼。因為教會是祂的身體,基督是教會的頭,哪有「頭是萬有之首而身體不是萬有之首」之理?!故此基督的頭和身體應同來作萬有之首的。


神給信的人的恩召有何等的旨望,神期望我們起來作萬有之首。神在信的人所得的基業是何等豐盛、榮耀,祂要得著我們成為基督的身體,並與基督一同作萬有之首。這就是神的基業。神向我們顯出何等大的能力,讓我們知道我們成為萬有之首,我們是有大能大力,超過一切屬靈的權柄、有名的、今世的和來世的。


我們成為萬有之首,成為基督的身體,我們被神充滿。「是那充滿萬有者所充滿的」。神在這宇宙萬物中,是充滿任何東西的;但祂更要充滿教會;教會是基督的身體,與祂一同作萬有之首,是靠著神不斷充滿我們,我們不能離開神。


我們是萬有之首!耶路撒冷的錫安山被堅立,超乎眾山,被高舉超過萬嶺。神殿的山直接比喻是以色列,應用在我們身上就是教會。對今天教會來說,我們是超乎諸山,且訓誨出於錫安,神的言語出於耶路撒冷,大家會在末後的日子上以色列領受神的話。今日,神的言語是出於神的教會,故此教會在職場之上,七個職場是平等的;但教會跟藝術界、工商界並非平等;我們是萬有之首!我們不單在萬有之上、且蒙福勝萬民,我們是萬有之首,包括職場所有各行各業,天上所有屬靈權柄,地上所有活物、今世的、來世的,教會均作他們的首領。


這是神對我們的盼望,在我們身上得的基業,向我們顯的能力。雖然我們平凡不過,但現在神的能力、心意在我們身上,把我們塑造成今天的模樣,我們要知道自己的身份──我們既屬教會,亦屬職場。但我們的職場是在教會遮蓋下,連於教會,接受教會的引導。神的話語出於錫安山(教會)。所以我們要起來牧養,牧者不要光作事工,更要帶門徒。



 


二、帶領萬有在基督裡同歸於一


「就如神從創立世界以前,在基督裡揀選了我們,使我們在他面前成為聖潔,無有瑕疵;又因愛我們,就按著自己意旨所喜悅的,預定我們藉著耶穌基督得兒子的名分,」(弗1:4-5)


1.成為聖潔無有瑕疵


神賜我們各樣屬靈福氣,是神在創世以先要給我們,叫我們成為聖潔,無有瑕疵。神對我們的心意是「聖潔無瑕疵」。


2.得兒子的名份


神揀選了我們,讓我們聖潔無瑕疵,進一步讓我們得著祂兒子的名份。


3.知道神旨意的奧秘


成為兒子後,神把祂兒子的奧秘向我們啟示。神讓我們得著祂兒子的名份是祂豐富的恩典,這恩典是祂充充足足賞賜給我們的。但是神不單叫我們罪得赦免、聖潔無瑕疵、成為兒子可以享福,神更讓我們成為兒子,叫我們知道祂的奧秘,(都是照他自己所預定的美意,叫我們知道他旨意的奧祕 v.9)這奧秘是「要照所安排的,在日期滿足的時候,使天上、地上、一切所有的都在基督裡同歸於一。」


原來神叫我們在基督裡,與基督一同作萬有之首,首先使我們成為聖潔,在整個成為萬有之首的過程,先讓我們成為聖潔,再得著兒子的名份,罪過得赦免,祂救贖了我們;然後靠著這恩典,成為神的兒子便知道神的奧秘。我們成為神的兒子,目的是要使萬有在耶穌基督裡同歸於一。


當我們歸向神,神賜我們治理權,故此我們所治理的都歸向神──這就是在基督裡同歸於一,作萬物的頭,帶領萬物歸向基督。原來神真正的旨意是要我們成為萬有之首,讓我們成為教會,起來帶領宇宙歸向基督,成為屬神的。神把權柄賜給基督,我們與基督一同作萬有之首,門徒、分堂、門徒教會,甚至土地都是屬於基督的。這就是在基督裡同歸於一。


職場屬於大地,屬於工作,所以各行各業都在教會之下。牧者們是擁有這位份的,我們要起來治理職場,起來牧養職場的弟兄姊妹。牧者們,不要以為自己不能幫助職場,神要賜下恩膏,屬靈的人參透萬事,有聖靈帶領我們,牧者們要起來牧養職場。


弟兄姊妹,當你越豐富,越在高位時,就更要謙卑下來,越被修剪,生命就能越蒙福。


三、叫神得榮耀


1.成為基業


我們真的要讓萬有在基督裡同歸於一,直到職場的運作完全合乎真理,以致我們的神在職場掌權。我們的神在家裡掌權,在職場掌權,在香港掌權,在中國掌權,在日本掌權──這正是我們所努力的。我以師母和我的門徒為榮。


2.受聖靈印記


今天我們仍有軟弱,有困難,因此,更要領受聖靈,成為印記,我們這作為祂萬有之首的基業有聖靈幫助我們,我們便能勝過自己的軟弱,神便得榮耀。


感謝神,當我被聖靈充滿後,神差我回港,給我異象使命。我、師母加上帖心牧師三人開始了「611」,走過十四年,現在聚會人數逾9000人,74間分堂,還有門徒教會,這就是聖靈在我身上的印記;今天可以辦職場特會,可以分享教會有122的身份,全是聖靈作的工。


我們真的經歷到我們是萬有之首,在任何地方,也可帶來那地方的改變。全因靠著聖靈的印記。■


(內容摘錄自 張恩年牧師 2015年6月12日蒙福勝萬民特會信息)


 


1) United with Christ as Head over All Things


I have read the book of Ephesians many times but every time I read it, I felt that I didn't really understand it. Praise God that today I can take a look at Chapter 1 with you and unlock its code. This is a new revelation and the first of its kind in all of my many years serving as pastor.


The Code of Blessing122 refers to the Church uniting with Christ to be head over all things - to reign with Him as the head over the universe; today God wants us to be head over all things.


A) Knowing God


“God placed all things under his feet, and appointed Him to be head over everything for the Church.” (Ephesians 1:22 NIV)


In the past, we just saw that Christ was the “Head over all things,” but because God continues to share His revelation with us, today we know that we, too, are head over all things.


Paul prays for us in Ephesians 1:15-17 and, knowing we were weak, asks God to give us wisdom and the spirit of revelation so that we can know Him better. Without the revelation of the Holy Spirit we would not know God. After having received the Holy Spirit and when I entered into a certain stage in my life, I reread this passage and began to understand what God was revealing to me. I started exercising the authority He empowered me with and, gradually, I came to understand and know Him better.


B) Knowing God's will for the Church


To really know God is to understand His will for the Church. He wants us to know how great, abundant, and loving He is, and that He can do miracles. But not only does He want us to know that He is great so that people praise His greatness, He also wants us to know that His greatness pertains to us. That's why Paul's following prayer is that the Church know God's will. “I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope of which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints.” (Ephesians 1:18 NIV)


i) God's Calling


God called us so that we can know His will and, even though He knows we are weak, He has a hope towards our calling. He wants us to know that, as His Church today, He has a great hope towards us.


ii) God's Inheritance


“I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope of which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints.” (Ephesians 1:18 NIV)


We really need to know and understand God and that He has a great hope toward His calling of us. We also need to know how rich and glorious His inheritance is among His holy people and that He is in the midst of them, that is, the Church; the inheritance He is to receive. God has a hope towards His calling of us, a glorious and rich inheritance; all this is what He is to receive from amongst us.


iii) The Power of God


“And his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of His mighty strength.” (Ephesians 1:19 NIV)


God's will for the Church includes His incomparably great power for us who believe. We need to know just how great that power that He manifests to the Church and to each and every one of us is, and know that it pertains to us.


This power is the power that God exerted in Christ, where in, Ephesians 1:20 it says, “which He exerted in Christ.” His great power overcame death, raised Christ from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in heavenly realms. While there, He was “far above all rule and authority, power, and dominion,” that is, above every ruler in the spirit realm. God wants us to know that His power was enough to raise Christ from the dead and seat Him at His right Hand above everything in the spiritual realm. “not only in this present age, but also in the one to come.” (Verse 21 NIV)


God wants us to know that He has this type of power that was exerted through Christ, overcame death, and seated Him in heavenly realms; it is above everything in spiritual realms, on earth, and above every name that is invoked, not only in this present age but also in the one to come. God wants the Church to know that He has this power and that the Church can experience it as well; no death nor power on earth can have dominion over us.


iv) Christ Places the Church as Head Over All Things


“And God placed all things under His Feet, and appointed Him to be head over everything for the Church, which is His Body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.” (Eph. 1: 22-23 NIV) These verses are found right at the opening of Ephesians; they are key verses. If we do not understand these two verses, it will be difficult to understand what Chapter 1 is saying and what the hope of His calling is, the wealth and glory of the inheritance, and how incomparably great His power is. God's original intention was for the Church to know His will for them to be head over all things. Christ is head over all things, and as the Church is in Christ, she too, is head over all things.


This is the Code of Blessing122.


Because the Church is the Body of Christ and Christ is Head of the Church, how can it be that just the Head is head over all things but not the Body? Therefore, it must be that Christ's Head and Body be head over all things together.


The calling that God has given those who believe is with such great hope; He expects that we will rise to be head over all things. The inheritance that He receives from those who believe is rich and glorious. He wants us to become the Body of Christ and become head over all things with Him; this is His inheritance. The power that God exerts towards us is so incomparably great and He wants us to know that we can be head over all things - far above all rule and authority, power, and dominion, in this present age and also in the one to come.


As head over all things and as the Body of Christ, we are filled with God, the fullness of His presence. This fullness is found in everything in the universe, but more than that, God wants It to fill His Church, the Body of Christ, so that they can be the head over all things with Him. We must rely on His continual filling in order to accomplish this; therefore, we cannot separate ourselves from Him.


Indeed! We are head over all things! Mount Zion in Jerusalem is fim and stands out from amongst the other mountains and the Temple Mount is a direct analogy of Israel; to apply this to our lives, it is the Church. Today's Church is to rise up and stand out as Mount Zion. Just as God's word goes forth from Jerusalem, in the End Times, many people will go to Israel to receive a word from God. Today, God speaks through His Church, as such, it is above the marketplace and the seven fields of industry are on equal standing. The Church and the arts industry and business fields, however, are not on an equal level; we are head over all things! Not only are we head over all things, we are blessed above all peoples! We are head over all things including every field and industry in the marketplace. This authority extends from everything in the spiritual realm to every living thing in the physical world, both in this present age and in the age to come: the Church is to be their leader.


This is God's hope towards us, the inheritance He receives from us, and the power He exerts. Even though we are just ordinary and simple people, with God's power and will working in our lives, He molds and transforms us. We need to know our own identity – that we not only belong to the church, but also to the marketplace. But the marketplace is under the covering of the church and is connected to it; it is where we receive guidance. God's word goes forth from Zion (the Church), so we need to rise up and disciple others. Pastors should not just focus on ministry, but on leading disciples.



 


2) Bringing Unity to All Things under Christ


“For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will,” (Eph. 1:4-5 NIV)


a) Be Holy and Blameless


God has given us every spiritual blessing before the creation of the world in that, He chose us to be holy and blameless; His will is for us to be holy and blameless.


b) Adoption to Sonship


God chose us to be holy and blameless, moreover, to receive sonship.


c) Understand the Mystery of His will


After becoming children of God, He reveals the mystery of His Son to us. It is an abundant blessing that He allows us to receive this sonship, and this grace is something He lavishes on us. But God does not only call us to be forgiven, holy and blameless, and enjoy the blessings of being His sons, more than that, He wants us to become His children so that we can know His mysteries. (“He made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure…” Verse 9). This mystery is which He purposed in Christ to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.”


It turns out that in the process of God calling us to be united with Christ to be head above all things with Him, He first makes us holy, then we receive sonship, the forgiveness of sins, and redemption through His Blood. Next, relying on this grace we become His children and then know His mysteries; our purpose of becoming His children is to bring unity to all things under Christ.


When we turn to God, He gives us the right to rule. As such, everything under us belongs to Him and is united under Christ. As head over all things, we are to bring all things under Christ. God's original intent and will is for us is to be head over all things, and as the Church, to rise up and turn everything in the universe towards Him, so that they are His. God gave Jesus the authority and, with Him, we are to be head over all things. All of our disciples, our branch churches, disciple churches, and even the land, belongs to Christ. This is what bringing unity to all things under Christ means.


The marketplace belongs to the earth and is related to work. As such, all fields and industries in the marketplace are under the authority of the Church. Pastors have a role to play; we are to rise up and govern the marketplace and disciple the brothers and sisters there. Fellow pastors, you may have thought that you could not be of much help in the marketplace; however, God has anointed you and with the power and leading of the Holy Spirit, you need to rise up to minister to those there.


Brothers and sisters, the more prosperity you experience and the higher in position you rise, the more humble you need to be and the more willing to receive correction; in doing so, the more your life will be blessed.


3) For the Praise of His Glory


a) Become the Inheritance


We should truly desire to bring all things to unity under Christ until the marketplace fully operates in the truth and that our God reigns there. Our God is to reign in our families, in the marketplace, in Hong Kong, in China and in Japan, and this is what we are endeavoring; I'm so proud of C-Mo and my disciples.


b) Be Sealed with the Holy Spirit


Today, we are still weak and experience difficulties so we need to receive the Holy Spirit and be marked with His seal all the more. As God's inheritance and as head over all things, we have the Holy Spirit to help us and are able to overcome our weaknesses even better so that God be glorified.


I thank God that after I was filled with the Holy Spirit, God sent me back to Hong Kong and gave me a vision and mission. The three of us, C-Mo, Pastor Deborah, and I, started 611 and, within fourteen years the people in our congregation grew to number about 9,000 and our branch churches, 74; additionally, we have our disciple churches - this is the mark of the Holy Spirit on us. It is all the work of the Holy Spirit that we were able to run a marketplace conference today and can share that the Church has the 122 Identity.


We are really experiencing being head over all things and, wherever it may be, the fact that we can bring transformation to that place is solely because of the mark of the Holy Spirit. ■
