Fifth of the Latter Sundays

1st Reading : 1 John 2 : 7- 20

7 Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning. 

8Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining. 

9 He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. 

10 He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 

11 But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. 

12 I write to you, little children, Because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake. 

13 I write to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, Because you have overcome the wicked one. I write to you, little children, Because you have known the Father. 

14 I have written to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one. 

15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 

16 For all that is in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life–is not of the Father but is of the world. 

17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. 

18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. 

19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. 

20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.

2nd. Reading : 1 Corinthians 9: 1-12

1 Am I not an apostle? Am I not free? Have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord? 

2 If I am not an apostle to others, yet doubtless I am to you. For you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord. 

3 My defense to those who examine me is this: 

4 Do we have no right to eat and drink? 

5 Do we have no right to take along a believing wife, as do also the other apostles, the brothers of the Lord, and Cephas? 

6 Or is it only Barnabas and I who have no right to refrain from working? 

7 Who ever goes to war at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? Or who tends a flock and does not drink of the milk of the flock?

8 Do I say these things as a mere man? Or does not the law say the same also? 

9 For it is written in the law of Moses, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.” Is it oxen God is concerned about? 

10 Or does He say it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written, that he who plows should plow in hope, and he who threshes in hope should be partaker of his hope.

11 If we have sown spiritual things for you, is it a great thing if we reap your material things? 

12 If others are partakers of this right over you, are we not even more? Nevertheless we have not used this right, but endure all things lest we hinder the gospel of Christ.

Gospel : Luke 11: 9-20

9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 

10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 

11 If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? 

12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 

13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” 

14 And He was casting out a demon, and it was mute. So it was, when the demon had gone out, that the mute spoke; and the multitudes marveled. 

15 But some of them said, “He casts out demons by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.”

16 Others, testing Him, sought from Him a sign from heaven. 

17But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls. 

18 If Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? Because you say I cast out demons by Beelzebub.

19 And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. 

20 But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you.

ألأحد الخامس من الآحاد الأخيرة للقيامة

القرائه الأولى : 1 يوحنا 2: 7 -20

7 أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ، لَسْتُ أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ وَصِيَّةً جَدِيدَةً، بَلْ وَصِيَّةً قَدِيمَةً كَانَتْ عِنْدَكُمْ مِنَ الْبَدْءِ. الْوَصِيَّةُ الْقَدِيمَةُ هِيَ الْكَلِمَةُ الَّتِي سَمِعْتُمُوهَا مِنَ الْبَدْءِ.

8 أَيْضًا وَصِيَّةً جَدِيدَةً أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ، مَا هُوَ حَقٌ فِيهِ وَفِيكُمْ: أَنَّ الظُّلْمَةَ قَدْ مَضَتْ، وَالنُّورَ الْحَقِيقِيَّ الآنَ يُضِيءُ.

9 مَنْ قَالَ: إِنَّهُ فِي النُّورِ وَهُوَ يُبْغِضُ أَخَاهُ، فَهُوَ إِلَى الآنَ فِي الظُّلْمَةِ.

10 مَنْ يُحِبُّ أَخَاهُ يَثْبُتُ فِي النُّورِ وَلَيْسَ فِيهِ عَثْرَةٌ.

11 وَأَمَّا مَنْ يُبْغِضُ أَخَاهُ فَهُوَ فِي الظُّلْمَةِ، وَفِي الظُّلْمَةِ يَسْلُكُ، وَلاَ يَعْلَمُ أَيْنَ يَمْضِي، لأَنَّ الظُّلْمَةَ أَعْمَتْ عَيْنَيْهِ.

12 أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيُّهَا الأَوْلاَدُ، لأَنَّهُ قَدْ غُفِرَتْ لَكُمُ الْخَطَايَا مِنْ أَجْلِ اسْمِهِ.

13 أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيُّهَا الآبَاءُ، لأَنَّكُمْ قَدْ عَرَفْتُمُ الَّذِي مِنَ الْبَدْءِ. أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيُّهَا الأَحْدَاثُ، لأَنَّكُمْ قَدْ غَلَبْتُمُ الشِّرِّيرَ. أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيُّهَا الأَوْلاَدُ، لأَنَّكُمْ قَدْ عَرَفْتُمُ الآبَ.

14 كَتَبْتُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيُّهَا الآبَاءُ، لأَنَّكُمْ قَدْ عَرَفْتُمُ الَّذِي مِنَ الْبَدْءِ. كَتَبْتُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيُّهَا الأَحْدَاثُ، لأَنَّكُمْ أَقْوِيَاءُ، وَكَلِمَةُ اللهِ ثَابِتَةٌ فِيكُمْ، وَقَدْ غَلَبْتُمُ الشِّرِّيرَ.

15 لاَ تُحِبُّوا الْعَالَمَ وَلاَ الأَشْيَاءَ الَّتِي فِي الْعَالَمِ. إِنْ أَحَبَّ أَحَدٌ الْعَالَمَ فَلَيْسَتْ فِيهِ مَحَبَّةُ الآبِ.

16 لأَنَّ كُلَّ مَا فِي الْعَالَمِ: شَهْوَةَ الْجَسَدِ، وَشَهْوَةَ الْعُيُونِ، وَتَعَظُّمَ الْمَعِيشَةِ، لَيْسَ مِنَ الآبِ بَلْ مِنَ الْعَالَمِ.

17 وَالْعَالَمُ يَمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ، وَأَمَّا الَّذِي يَصْنَعُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فَيَثْبُتُ إِلَى الأَبَدِ.

18 أَيُّهَا الأَوْلاَدُ هِيَ السَّاعَةُ الأَخِيرَةُ. وَكَمَا سَمِعْتُمْ أَنَّ ضِدَّ الْمَسِيحِ يَأْتِي، قَدْ صَارَ الآنَ أَضْدَادٌ لِلْمَسِيحِ كَثِيرُونَ. مِنْ هُنَا نَعْلَمُ أَنَّهَا السَّاعَةُ الأَخِيرَةُ.

 19 مِنَّا خَرَجُوا، لكِنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَكُونُوا مِنَّا، لأَنَّهُمْ لَوْ كَانُوا مِنَّا لَبَقُوا مَعَنَا. لكِنْ لِيُظْهَرُوا أَنَّهُمْ لَيْسُوا جَمِيعُهُمْ مِنَّا.

20 وَأَمَّا أَنْتُمْ فَلَكُمْ مَسْحَةٌ مِنَ الْقُدُّوسِ وَتَعْلَمُونَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ.

القرائه الثانية : 1 كورونثوس 9: 1 -12 

1 أَلَسْتُ أَنَا رَسُولاً؟ أَلَسْتُ أَنَا حُرًّا؟ أَمَا رَأَيْتُ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحَ رَبَّنَا؟ أَلَسْتُمْ أَنْتُمْ عَمَلِي فِي الرَّبِّ؟

2 إِنْ كُنْتُ لَسْتُ رَسُولاً إِلَى آخَرِينَ، فَإِنَّمَا أَنَا إِلَيْكُمْ رَسُولٌ! لأَنَّكُمْ أَنْتُمْ خَتْمُ رِسَالَتِي فِي الرَّبِّ.

3 هذَا هُوَ احْتِجَاجِي عِنْدَ الَّذِينَ يَفْحَصُونَنِي:

4 أَلَعَلَّنَا لَيْسَ لَنَا سُلْطَانٌ أَنْ نَأْكُلَ وَنَشْرَبَ؟

5 أَلَعَلَّنَا لَيْسَ لَنَا سُلْطَانٌ أَنْ نَجُولَ بِأُخْتٍ زَوْجَةً كَبَاقِي الرُّسُلِ وَإِخْوَةِ الرَّبِّ وَصَفَا؟

6 أَمْ أَنَا وَبَرْنَابَا وَحْدَنَا لَيْسَ لَنَا سُلْطَانٌ أَنْ لاَ نَشْتَغِلَ؟

7 مَنْ تَجَنَّدَ قَطُّ بِنَفَقَةِ نَفْسِهِ؟ وَمَنْ يَغْرِسُ كَرْمًا وَمِنْ ثَمَرِهِ لاَ يَأْكُلُ؟ أَوْ مَنْ يَرْعَى رَعِيَّةً وَمِنْ لَبَنِ الرَّعِيَّةِ لاَ يَأْكُلُ؟

8 أَلَعَلِّي أَتَكَلَّمُ بِهذَا كَإِنْسَانٍ؟ أَمْ لَيْسَ النَّامُوسُ أَيْضًا يَقُولُ هذَا؟

9 فَإِنَّهُ مَكْتُوبٌ فِي نَامُوسِ مُوسَى: «لاَ تَكُمَّ ثَوْرًا دَارِسًا». أَلَعَلَّ اللهَ تُهِمُّهُ الثِّيرَانُ؟

10 أَمْ يَقُولُ مُطْلَقًا مِنْ أَجْلِنَا؟ إِنَّهُ مِنْ أَجْلِنَا مَكْتُوبٌ. لأَنَّهُ يَنْبَغِي لِلْحَرَّاثِ أَنْ يَحْرُثَ عَلَى رَجَاءٍ، وَلِلدَّارِسِ عَلَى الرَّجَاءِ أَنْ يَكُونَ شَرِيكًا فِي رَجَائِهِ.

11 إِنْ كُنَّا نَحْنُ قَدْ زَرَعْنَا لَكُمُ الرُّوحِيَّاتِ، أَفَعَظِيمٌ إِنْ حَصَدْنَا مِنْكُمُ الْجَسَدِيَّاتِ؟

12 إِنْ كَانَ آخَرُونَ شُرَكَاءَ فِي السُّلْطَانِ عَلَيْكُمْ، أَفَلَسْنَا نَحْنُ بِالأَوْلَى؟ لكِنَّنَا لَمْ نَسْتَعْمِلْ هذَا السُّلْطَانَ، بَلْ نَتَحَمَّلُ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ لِئَلاَّ نَجْعَلَ عَائِقًا لإِنْجِيلِ الْمَسِيحِ.

قرائة الأنجيل : لوقا 11 : 9 – 20

9 وَأَنَا أَقُولُ لَكُمُ: اسْأَلُوا تُعْطَوْا، اُطْلُبُوا تَجِدُوا، اِقْرَعُوا يُفْتَحْ لَكُمْ.

10 لأَنَّ كُلَّ مَنْ يَسْأَلُ يَأْخُذُ، وَمَنْ يَطْلُبُ يَجِدُ، وَمَنْ يَقْرَعُ يُفْتَحُ لَهُ.

11 فَمَنْ مِنْكُمْ، وَهُوَ أَبٌ، يَسْأَلُهُ ابْنُهُ خُبْزًا، أَفَيُعْطِيهِ حَجَرًا؟ أَوْ سَمَكَةً، أَفَيُعْطِيهِ حَيَّةً بَدَلَ السَّمَكَةِ؟

12 أَوْ إِذَا سَأَلَهُ بَيْضَةً، أَفَيُعْطِيهِ عَقْرَبًا؟

13 فَإِنْ كُنْتُمْ وَأَنْتُمْ أَشْرَارٌ تَعْرِفُونَ أَنْ تُعْطُوا أَوْلاَدَكُمْ عَطَايَا جَيِّدَةً، فَكَمْ بِالْحَرِيِّ الآبُ الَّذِي مِنَ السَّمَاءِ، يُعْطِي الرُّوحَ الْقُدُسَ لِلَّذِينَ يَسْأَلُونَهُ؟».

14 وَكَانَ يُخْرِجُ شَيْطَانًا، وَكَانَ ذلِكَ أَخْرَسَ. فَلَمَّا أُخْرِجَ الشَّيْطَانُ تَكَلَّمَ الأَخْرَسُ، فَتَعَجَّبَ الْجُمُوعُ.

15 وَأَمَّا قَوْمٌ مِنْهُمْ فَقَالُوا: «بِبَعْلَزَبُولَ رَئِيسِ الشَّيَاطِينِ يُخْرِجُ الشَّيَاطِينَ».

16 وَآخَرُونَ طَلَبُوا مِنْهُ آيَةً مِنَ السَّمَاءِ يُجَرِّبُونَهُ.

17 فَعَلِمَ أَفْكَارَهُمْ، وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «كُلُّ مَمْلَكَةٍ مُنْقَسِمَةٍ عَلَى ذَاتِهَا تَخْرَبُ، وَبَيْتٍ مُنْقَسِمٍ عَلَى بَيْتٍ يَسْقُطُ.

18 فَإِنْ كَانَ الشَّيْطَانُ أَيْضًا يَنْقَسِمُ عَلَى ذَاتِهِ، فَكَيْفَ تَثْبُتُ مَمْلَكَتُهُ؟ لأَنَّكُمْ تَقُولُونَ: إِنِّي بِبَعْلَزَبُولَ أُخْرِجُ الشَّيَاطِينَ.

19 فَإِنْ كُنْتُ أَنَا بِبَعْلَزَبُولَ أُخْرِجُ الشَّيَاطِينَ، فَأَبْنَاؤُكُمْ بِمَنْ يُخْرِجُونَ؟ لِذلِكَ هُمْ يَكُونُونَ قُضَاتَكُمْ!

20 وَلكِنْ إِنْ كُنْتُ بِأَصْبعِ اللهِ أُخْرِجُ الشَّيَاطِينَ، فَقَدْ أَقْبَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ مَلَكُوتُ اللهِ.



Sayings of the Saints

The house that no one dwells in is dark so is the soul in which God with His angels don’t dwell.
البيت الذي لا يسكنهُ أحد يكون مظلماً هكذا النفس التـي لا يسكنـها اللـه مـع الملائـكة
