"If l am a man of God," Elijah replied,"may fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men!" Then the fire of God fell from heaven and consumed him and his fifty men.2Kings1:12 以利亞回答他們說：“如果我是神人，願火從天降下，把你和你的五十名手下吞滅。”於是 神的火從天降下，吞滅了五十夫長和他的五十名手下。 列 王 紀下 1:12
anneleefm: 哈巴谷書3:1哈巴谷先知的禱告,配激動的音調。2耶和華啊！我聽見你的聲音，懼怕你的作為；求你在這些年間復興，在這些年間彰顯，發怒的時候以憐憫為懷。5瘟疫在他面前行走，災病在他腳下發出。6他站立，震撼全地；他觀看，驚散列國。永在的山崩裂，長存的嶺塌陷；他的道路存到永遠。12你激憤踐踏全地，你懷怒打碎列國。Habakkuk 3:Habakkuk’s Prayer 1 prayer of Habakkuk the prophet. On shigionoth.2Lord, I have heard of your fame;I stand in awe of your deeds, O Lord.Renew them in our day,in our time make them known;in wrath remember mercy.5Plague went before him;pestilence followed his steps.6He stood, and shook the earth;he looked, and made the nations tremble. 12In wrath you strode through the earth and in anger you threshed the nations.
哥林多前書1:17基督差遣我，不是要我去施洗，而是去傳福音；不是靠著智慧的言論去傳，免得基督的十字架失去了效力。18因為十字架的道理，對走向滅亡的人來說是愚笨的，但對我們這些得救的人，卻是神的大能。19因為經上記著說：“我要滅絕智慧人的智慧，廢棄聰明人的聰明。”20智慧人在哪裡？經學家在哪裡？今世的辯士在哪裡？ 神不是使屬世的智慧變成了愚笨嗎？17For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.18For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written:“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”20Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

New International Version 1984
1Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes,
2To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours:
3Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
4I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. 5For in him you have been enriched in every way—in all your speaking and in all your knowledge— 6because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. 7Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. 8He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.
Divisions in the Church
10I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought. 11My brothers, some from Chloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. 12What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephasa”; still another, “I follow Christ.”
