A Barrier Between GOD and MAN


The WHITE ARROW, pointing at God's Righteousness indicates a right choice. The BLACK ARROW indicates a wrong choice, usually referred to as SIN. 白色箭頭指向神的公義,表明正確的選擇。 黑色箭頭表明錯誤的選擇,通常稱為罪。
God had only given Adam and Eve one rule or one choice that they had to obey, or pay the penalty of death. Although they were able to make lots of other choices, like what to name the animals, God said that if they ate of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, they would die. When the day came that they chose to disobey God, they sinned. In that moment they realized that they were now separated from God. 神只給亞當和夏娃一條規則,或說一個選擇,叫他們遵守, 否則就要受死的刑罰。雖然他們能夠作許多其他的選擇,譬如給動物取名字, 但是神說如果他們吃了善惡樹的果子,他們就會死。當那一天他們選擇了違背神, 他們就犯了罪。在那時刻,他們發現自己就與神隔離了。
Before they sinned, they were friends with God. Now that they had sinned, the consequence or penalty was death. God offered a temporary solution at the time by instituting a blood sacrifice in the death of animals (whose skins then provided a "covering" for Adam and Eve.) 他們犯罪以前,與神是朋友。現在他們犯了罪,後果或刑罰是死亡。當時神賜下一個暫時性的解救方法, 就是設立以被殺的動物為血祭(動物的皮就用來「遮蓋」亞當和夏娃)。
  • Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. (KJV)
  • 希伯來書 9:22 「按著律法,凡物差不多都是用血潔淨的,若不流血,罪就不得赦免了。」
Man's sin created a wall of separation or BARRIER between sinful man and holy God. The solution to this separation would be revealed when Jesus, the sinless Son of God and also human son of Mary, would die on the cross to pay the penalty of sin for all mankind. 人的罪造成了有罪的人和聖潔的神中間的一道隔離的牆壁或攔阻,解決這隔離的方法就在耶穌身上顯明了。祂是神無罪的兒子, 也是馬利亞肉身的兒子,要為全人類的罪承受刑罰而死在十字架上。
