Fakafo'ou Ako Faka-Kalisitiane: Tali 'a Sisu Kalaisi ki he Mo'ui, ko e Fakamo'ui 'i he Laumalie Ma'oni'oni.

Ko e fehuʻi mahuʻinga ki he Siasi pe ‘oku ʻuhinga ki he hā ‘a e tali ‘o e Sisū Kalaisi ko e ‘Eiki mo Fakamoʻui. Fokotuʻu atu ke tau kamata ʻi he tomuʻa maʻu Laumalie Māʻoniʻoni.

Ko e palomesi ki he hifo mai ‘a e Laumalie Maʻoniʻoni naʻe fai ʻe he ‘Eiki ki he Kau Ako hili ‘a e ʻOhomohe. “Ko hono lelei kiate kimoutolu ‘a e hiki ʻaʻaku pea kapau ʻe ʻikai te u hiki, pea ʻe ʻikai haʻu ‘a e Taukapo – (Laumalie Maʻoniʻoni) kiate kimoutolu. Ka ʻo kapau te u ʻalu, te u fekau Ia (Laumalie Maʻoniʻoni) kiate kimoutolu” (Ngaue 16:7).

Ko e hifo mai ‘a e Laumālie Maʻoniʻoni ki he loto mo e laumālie ‘o e tangata mo e fefine. Ko e ‘uhinga faka- tokāteline ‘o e Laumālie Maʻoniʻoní ko e mānava moʻui, ko e ʻea pe matangi. He ko e anga ia ‘o e ngāue mai ‘a e ‘Otuá ‘i he Laumalie Maʻoniʻoni ko e fakamānavaʻi ke moʻui faka- Kalaisi ‘a e faʻahinga ‘o e tangatá. ‘Oku ‘ikai ko ha manava ʻea faka-matelie ki he moʻui ‘a e sinó matelie ‘oku tau mānavaʻakí, ka ko e faʻahinga ‘ea pe ‘oku ui ko e matangi faka-Penitekosi ‘oku hō mai ‘e he ‘Otuá ki he loto mo e laumālie ‘o e faʻahinga ‘o e tangatá ke moʻui fakaʻaho ʻi he moʻui ‘a Kalaisi.

‘Oku ua ‘a e mānava ‘oku moʻui fakasino ai ‘a e faʻahinga ‘o e tangatá ‘o fakatatau ki he saianisi ‘o natulá. Ko e mānava ki loto (breath in) mo e mānava ki tuʻa (breath out). Pea ‘oku ‘alu takai (cycle) atu ki tuʻa mohūmaikiloto‘aeongo ‘ea ‘e ua. ‘Oku tau mānava ki loto ki he sinó ‘a e faʻahinga ‘ea ‘oku ui fakasaianisi ko e ‘ea foʻou’ (oxygen), pea ‘oku tau mānava ki tuʻa ‘a e ‘ea ‘oku ui ko e ‘penuʻi ‘ea’ pe ko ‘ea kuo motuʻa pe ‘osi ngāueʻaki (carbon dioxide). Ko e Laumālie Maʻoniʻoní pe ko e Matangi faka-Penitekosí, ko e mānava mai ia ‘a e ‘Otuá ‘a e ivi mo e malohi foʻou ‘i he taimi kotoa pé. ‘Oku ‘ikai ha taimi ia ‘e motuʻa ai ‘a e mānava mai (breath out) ‘a e Laumālie Maʻoniʻoní ki heʻetau moʻuí ke tau tali ki loto (breath in), koeʻuhí he ‘oku ‘ikai fakataimi ‘Ene moʻui mo ngāue.

Ko e fakafoʻou ‘a e Laumālie Maʻoniʻoni ‘oku fai ‘i he taimi kotoa pē pea ‘oku ‘ikai ‘uhinga ia ke toki ‘aʻahi pe mānava fakaʻaho mai ke fakafoʻou kitautolu. Ka ‘oku ‘uhinga ke maʻu Laumālie Maʻoniʻoni, tā tuʻo taha, ‘a e kakai ‘o e Siasí ko e fetongi ʻo Kalaisi pea tuku ke afio tuʻumaʻu ai ‘a e ‘Otua ko e Laumālie Maʻoniʻoni ‘o fakafoʻou kitautolu ‘i he taimi kotoa pē. ‘Oku ‘i ai ‘a e ongo lea ngāue ‘a e Laumālie Maʻoniʻoni ‘oku fakamatalaʻiʻaki ‘a e maʻu ivi mo e lavameʻa ‘a Tēvita kaeholo‘aengeiamoe langilangi ‘o e tuʻi ko Saulá, ‘oku fakalea ‘o pehē: “Pea naʻe ‘ohofia pe nofoʻia (invade) ‘a Tēvita ‘e he Laumālie ‘o e ‘Eikí... Pea hiki pe mahuʻi (withdraw) ‘a e Laumālie ‘o e ‘Eikí meia Saula...” (I Sāmiuela 16: 13-14).

Ko e ‘uluaki kakai ‘o e muʻaki Siasí naʻe ‘ikai ngata pē ‘a e faʻofale pe ko ‘enau maʻu Laumālie Maʻoniʻoní, ka naʻe fakalea kinautolu ‘i he ngaahi lea kehe. Ko e fakamānavaʻi ‘oku fai ‘e he ‘Otuá kiate kitautolú ke fakaongo mai kituʻa ke mamata, fanongo mo aʻusia ‘e he kakaí ‘a e ongoʻi ‘o Kalaisi ‘i he meʻa ‘oku tau leaʻaki mo faí. Hangē ha ngaahi meʻa lea ‘oku fakaleaʻaki ‘a hono ifi ki ai ha ‘ea. Ko e ngaahi meʻalea ko e meʻaifi palasa, talupite, meʻaifi mimiha, keleʻa, fangufangu, piukala mo e hā fua. ‘Oku faʻu ʻaki kinatolu ‘a e ngaahi koloa naunau (materials) kehekehe ‘i he fotunga kehekehe, lalahi mo e lōlōa kehekehe. Pea ‘oku taha pē founga te nau lea aí, ko e ifi pe manava ki ai ha ‘ea. Pea te nau ongo mai ‘o fakatatau ki honau fotunga takitaha ‘o e meʻalea. ‘Oku pehē ‘a ‘etau maʻu Laumālie Maʻoniʻoni ko e fetongi ʻo Kalaisi. ‘Oku tau natula kehekehe ‘i he ngaahi meʻa lahi ‘o e moʻuí, ka ‘e fakalea kitautolu ‘e he Laumālie Māʻoniʻoni ‘o fakatatau ki hotau natula ke ongo mālie mo foʻou ‘i he ‘aho kotoa pē ‘a e moʻui ʻia Kalaisi.

  • Lessons from the life of David 1

    {mp3}twft/2017/07/UK07212017{/mp3}



    'All things work together for good to those who love God.' Romans 8:28 NKJV

    God said, 'I have found David...a man after my own heart, who will do all my will' (Acts 13:22 NKJV). When God says that about someone, you'd be wise to observe that person's life. David started out as a shepherd and ended up as king. The chances of that happening were zero. Shepherds were so low on the social totem pole they couldn't testify in a court of law because their word wasn't considered reliable. Yet David ended up writing the most widely read psalms of all time.

    Understand this: When you invite God into your life, he cancels the liabilities of your past and rewrites your future. But you must choose what God has chosen for you! There's an interesting contrast between Paul and David. Paul lived his chapters of disobedience before he met Christ, then went on to live an exemplary life. David became king at 30, and during his forty years in leadership experienced devastating failure, including adultery and murder. There are two important lessons here: (1) Don't rush to judgement. It's not over until God says it's over! David's story is a warning to the transgressor, a rebuke to the self-righteous, a verification of God's justice that won't allow you to escape your consequences, and a testimony to his love that will never let go of you. (2) God can bring good out of what seems like a bad situation. He can take every experience you've been through and make it work for good - either your own good or the good of others.

    Bottom line: he can make 'all things work together for good' (Romans 8:28 NKJV).
