Utambulisho na Hadhi ya Mungu Mwenyewe

Mungu ndiye mtawala wa vitu vyote, na anayeendesha vitu vyote. Aliumba vitu vyote, Anaendesha vitu vyote, na pia Anatawala vitu vyote na kukimu vitu vyote. Hii ndiyo hadhi ya Mungu, na utambulisho wa Mungu. Kwa vitu vyote na vyote vilivyopo, utambulisho wa kweli wa Mungu ni Muumbaji, na Mtawala wa vitu vyote. Huo ni utambulisho unaomilikiwa na Mungu, na ni wa kipekee miongoni mwa vitu vyote. Hakuna Kati ya viumbe wa Mungu—wawe miongoni mwa wanadamu, au katika ulimwengu wa kiroho—ambao wanaweza kutumia namna yoyote au kisingizio kuiga au kuchukua nafasi ya utambulisho wa Mungu na hadhi Yake, kwa kuwa kuna mmoja tu kati ya vitu vyote anayemiliki huu utambulisho, nguvu, mamlaka, na uwezo wa kutawala vitu vyote: Mungu wetu wa kipekee Mwenyewe. Anaishi na kutembea miongoni mwa vitu vyote; Anaweza kufikia palipo mbali zaidi, juu ya vitu vyote; Anaweza kunyenyekea kwa kuwa mwanadamu, kuwa mmoja wa wenye mwili na damu, kuonana ana kwa ana na watu na kushiriki na wao dhiki na faraja; wakati huo huo, Anaamuru vitu vyote, na Huamua hatima ya vitu vyote, na njia itakayofuata, zaidi na hayo, Anaongoza hatima za wanadamu wote, na njia za wanadamu. Mungu kama huyu anastahili kuabudiwa, kuheshimiwa, na kujulikana na viumbe wote. Na hivyo, pasipo kujali uko katika kundi na aina gani ya wanadamu, kumwamini Mungu, kumfuata Mungu, kumheshimu Mungu sana, kukubali utawala wa Mungu, na kukubali mipango ya Mungu katika hatima yako ndio uamuzi wa pekee, na uamuzi unaofaa, kwa mtu yeyote, kwa kiumbe chochote kinachoishi. Katika upekee wa Mungu, watu huona kwamba mamlaka Yake, tabia Yake ya haki, kiini Chake, na namna ambazo Anakirimia vitu vyote ni za kipekee; upekee Wake unabainisha utambulisho wa kweli wa Mungu Mwenyewe, na unabaini hadhi Yake. Na kwa hivyo, miongoni mwa viumbe vyote, kama kuna kiumbe anayeishi katika ulimwengu wa kiroho au miongoni mwa wanadamu angetamani kusimama badala ya Mungu, haingewezekana, sawa na kujaribu kumuiga Mungu. Huu ni ukweli. Ni mahitaji yapi kwa mwanadamu aliyonayo Muumbaji na Mtawala kama huyu, ambaye Aliye na utambulisho, nguvu, na hadhi ya Mungu Mwenyewe? Hili linapaswa kuwa wazi kwa kila mtu, na linapaswa kukumbukwa nanyi, na ni muhimu sana kwa Mungu na mwanadamu!

The Status and Identity of God Himself

I

God’s identity is Creator, Ruler. He is unique amongst all things, all that there is. None of God’s creatures, man or spiritual, can portray, replace His status or identity. For there exists only one among all things with this identity, authority, power, and ability to rule over all things. It’s the only One: Our unique God Himself. God rules and reigns over all things. He created, administers, and provides for all there is. God rules and reigns. This is His status and identity.

II

He lives and He moves among all there is. He can rise up high and be above all things. He can humble Himself to become a man, becoming one among those of flesh and blood. He meets people, shares in their joys and sorrows. He commands all things, decides their fate. He decides the direction in which they move. He guides the fate and direction of mankind. God rules and reigns over all things. He created, administers, and provides for all there is. God rules and reigns. This is His status and identity.

III

All living beings should worship, obey, know this God. The only necessary choice for all men is to believe in, follow and revere God, to accept His rule and plan for their fate. God rules and reigns over all things. He created, administers, and provides for all there is. God rules and reigns. This is His status and identity.
