09年3月,大笨象供股,恆指插水的時候,
小赤做了一個新嘗試──

平生第一次學人投資美股!

如果你問我,匯豐供股,香港恆指插水,
和買進美股有甚麼關係?
老老實實...的確沒有多大關係。

但如我以往在恩賜運作見證中分享,在我學習與神溝通的過程中,
神很多時會從一件看似沒有直接關連的事情,向我說話,
讓我看見一些平時看不到的事情,這樣我更知道不是出於自己的聯想。

所以,當09年3月,心中忽然有感動要買美股的時候,
我便開始做research,研究一下怎樣買美股。

感謝主,現在有 Google,許多事情自學起來都是很方便的。
事實也不如想像中複雜,也不過是在網上開個戶口就是了。

開了戶以後,存錢,買進心儀的公司,攪掂,就是這麼簡單!

前文:神造萬物,各按其時成為美好

「你們因著這套健康訊息,近半年身體改善了。
這在外面世界來說,其實是不正常的。
因為外面大部份人的健康,近年是越來越差,
到了2012更會急轉直下。」

在聽麻麻這段說話時,內心真的很感恩。
08年初,因為身體的緣故,暫停了許多事奉崗位,
許多事情急著做、卻又有心無力;心情相當沮喪、無助。

一次星期六,看著同屋們一個個外出跟進,
突然感到自己是那麼沒貢獻,眼淚悄悄流下。
神卻藉著元祖 Unplugged那件事,安慰我:
你現在必須留力、養好身體,因為重要時刻將要來到。

當時,我不知道這個重要時刻是甚麼,
就如那次06年全職camp,我只顧著玩,
壓根兒沒想到那天凌晨會有更重要的事件--
元祖 Unplugged,神因而才趕我去睡覺。

07到08年中,是我健康狀況最差的時期。
那段時間,我的身體狀況,不是說笑,
比許多我所認識四、五十歲的人更糟。
每天應付日常生活都有困難,更不要說活躍地事奉。

雖然用了許多方法,花了大筆金錢嘗試改善身體,
情況不但沒有改善,反而每況愈下。
日復日,月復月,我的信心開始動搖──
我到底何時才能回復健康、活力?
又或者...我到底能否再回復健康的身體?

有段時期,我變得極之消極,沮喪,
心中蘊釀著莫名的憤怒,無奈,嘆息。
聽起來很好笑,我彷彿提早了十年經歷中年危機。

但也是在這人生低谷中,「信望愛」中的「盼望」,
真真切切地確立在我生命裡,超過任何一段安舒的時期。

那些神曾經向我揭示的應許,讓我瞥見的將來,
無論是神的時代計劃、神對我的呼召,神為我預備的永恆家鄉...

What can I offer unto You
Who made the world and all things new
And knew my name before time began
What can I give to You who reigns
Who owes no debt to anything
All I have Lord is my praise

You gave me life. You gave me breath
You guide my way with tenderness
I know You've claimed me as Your own
If I'm known to heaven but not by man
Still You know my heart and who I am
I come with nothing more but praise

I will worship You in spirit and in truth
For by Your righteousness and grace
You've brought me through
I will worship You with all that's in my soul
Until my last breath
The time You call me home

有些功課,是沒有人可以幫你做的。
即使是領袖,也無法監粗破碎他的跟從者。
只有你自己能夠決定。

我也必更加卑微,自己看為輕賤。

將榮耀歸予你,耶穌!
將榮耀歸予你!

我願更衰微、願主興旺,願你榮耀降臨!

我有兩個嗜好:
第一是追溯屬靈偉人的成長過程,
第二就是追蹤他們的終局。

我深信一個人能夠偉大,背後一定有一段很精彩漫長的成長歷程,
讓他從平凡當中被塑造、改變,高昇,至終擁有偉大的特質。

就如大衛,我很想、很想知道,
在他還是一個牧童、獨自在曠野牧羊的時候,
他是一個怎樣的少年人,以至祂會被神選上呢?

當他被掃羅追殺,四處流浪,妻兒擄去、眾叛親離的一刻,
他作出甚麼決定?

當先知拿單指出他的罪行,當神擊打他和拔士巴所生的嬰孩,
大衛在神面前第一個反應是甚麼?

當四境平靜,安坐在香柏木所造的皇宮中,
大衛心裡渴求的是甚麼?

(續 「接棒」...)

追溯屬靈領袖的成長過程,常常讓我從別人的成功中,尋找到信仰的路徑;
遺憾的是,當我追蹤歷史上許多屬靈領袖的終局,
很多時,我只能從別人的失敗中,為未來作出警剔和步署。

很多次,當我發現一些很有恩膏、很有感力的經典詩歌,
我都會忍不住追查:這首歌是誰創作的呢?!
如此有生命力的詩歌,背後一定有一個感人的生命故事!

在我所追蹤的這些,舉世一時無兩的敬拜讚美領袖中,
他們的事奉壽命,絕大部份只能維持十年。
即使按著年齡計算,他們今天不過處於中年,和日華牧師、展鳴校長年紀相若
但他們的事奉,早已末入黃昏,他們年青時的熱心,也無人再提。

所以,我相信像日華牧師、展鳴校長那樣,
在事奉十年、二十年以後,不但沒有任何走下坡的現象,
反而持續增長、擴展,承傳,已經是在改寫歷史了。

It is at this point that the real legend begins. For the next two years, Oskar Schindler's ever-present obsession was how to save the greatest number of Jews from the Auschwitz gas chamber only sixty kilometres from Cracow.

His first ambitious move was to attempt to help the starving, fearful prisoners at Plaszow. Schindler requested that those Jews who continued to work in his factory be moved into their own sub-camp near the plant "to save time in getting to the job,".

From then on, Schindler found that be could have food and medicine smuggled into the barracks with little danger. The guards, of course, were bribed, and Goeth (the German commander) never was to discover the true motives in Schindler's request.

Schindler began to take bigger risks. Interceding for Jews who were denounced for one "crime" or another was a dangerous habit in fascist eyes, but Schindler now started to do this almost regularly. "Stop killing my good workers," was his usual technique. "We've got a war to win. These things can always be settled later." The ruse succeeded often enough to save dozens of lives.

By the spring of 1944, the German retreat on the Eastern Front was on in earnest. Plaszow and all its sub-camps were ordered emptied. Schindler and his workers had no illusions about what a move to another concentration camp implied. The time had come for Oskar Schindler to play his trump card, a daring gamble that he had devised beforehand.

He went to work on all his drinking companions, on his connections in military and industrial circles in Cracow and in Warsaw. He bribed, cajoled, pleaded, working desperately against time and fighting what everyone assured him was a lost cause. He persisted until someone, somewhere in the hierarchy, perhaps impatient to end the seemingly trifling business, finally gave him the authorization to move a force of 700 men and 300 women from the Plaszow camp into a factory at Brnenec in his native Sudetenland.

Most of the other 25,000 men, women, and children at Plaszow were sent to Auschwitz, there to find the same end that several million other Jews had already discovered. But out of the vast calamity, and through the stubborn efforts of one man, a thousand Jews were saved temporarily. One thousand half-starved, sick, and almost broken human beings had had a death sentence commuted by a miraculous reprieve.

The Schindlerjuden by now depended on him completely and were fearful in his absence. His compassion and sacrifice were unstinting. He spent every bit of money still left in his possession, and traded his wife's jewellery as well, for food, clothing, and medicine, and for schnapps with which to bribe the many SS investigators. He furnished a secret hospital with stolen and black-market medical equipment, fought epidemics, and once made a 300-mile trip himself carrying two enormous flasks filled with Polish vodka and bringing them back full of desperately needed medicine. His wife, Emilie, cooked and cared for the sick and earned her own reputation and praise.

(續「The real Oskar Schindler」。。。)

讀過猶太英雄舒特拉,在二戰期間,
從納粹德軍的集中營,救出過千名猶太人的故事,
相信大家都會被他捨己愛人的英勇義行所感動。

與此同時,我想許多人也和我一樣,會感到好奇:
是甚麼驅使他這樣做?

第一,他不是基督徒。
他只是個裝樣的天主教徒,完全稱不上虔誠或與神有甚麼個人關係。
第二,他不是猶太人。
他是迫逼猶太人最厲害的德國人,並且是納粹黨成員!

「那麼,他一定擁有非常偉大的抱負,美好的情操!是個高尚的人!」

起初,我也是這樣以為,
但當我追蹤舒特拉的生平,奇怪的是,
他很明顯只是一個很普通的年青人,談不上擁有甚麼偉大情操──
