First of the General Sundays

1st. Reading: Acts 13:26-41

26 Men and brethren, sons of the family of Abraham, and those among you who fear God, to you the word of this salvation has been sent. 

27 For those who dwell in Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they did not know Him, nor even the voices of the Prophets which are read every Sabbath, have fulfilled them in condemning Him. 

28 And though they found no cause for death in Him, they asked Pilate that He should be put to death. 

29 Now when they had fulfilled all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the tree and laid Him in a tomb. 

30 But God raised Him from the dead. 

31 He was seen for many days by those who came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are His witnesses to the people. 

32And we declare to you glad tidings–that promise which was made to the fathers.

33 God has fulfilled this for us their children, in that He has raised up Jesus. As it is also written in the second Psalm: ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.’ 

34And that He raised Him from the dead, no more to return to corruption, He has spoken thus: ‘I will give you the sure mercies of David.’ 

35 Therefore He also says in another Psalm: ‘You will not allow Your Holy One to see corruption.’ 

36 “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers, and saw corruption; 

37 but He whom God raised up saw no corruption. 

38 Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; 

39 and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.

40 Beware therefore, lest what has been spoken in the prophets come upon you:

41 “Behold, you despisers, Marvel and perish! For I work a work in your days, A work which you will by no means believe, Though one were to declare it to you.’ “

2nd.Reading: 2 Timothy 2:20-26

20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 

21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. 

22 Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 

23 But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife. 

24 And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, 

25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, 

26 and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.

Gospel: Mark 13: 32-36

32 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 

33 Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. 

34 It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch. 

35 Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming–in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning– 

36 lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping.

ألأحد الأول من الآحاد العامة

القرائة الأولى : أعمال الرسل 13 : 26-41

26 أيها الرجال الإخوة بني جنس إبراهيم، والذين بينكم يتقون الله، إليكم أرسلت كلمة هذا الخلاص

27 لأن الساكنين في أورشليم ورؤساءهم لم يعرفوا هذا. وأقوال الأنبياء التي تقرأ كل سبت تمموها، إذ حكموا عليه

28 ومع أنهم لم يجدوا علة واحدة للموت طلبوا من بيلاطس أن يقتل

29 ولما تمموا كل ما كتب عنه، أنزلوه عن الخشبة ووضعوه في قبر

30 ولكن الله أقامه من الأموات

31 وظهر أياما كثيرة للذين صعدوا معه من الجليل إلى أورشليم، الذين هم شهوده عند الشعب

32 ونحن نبشركم بالموعد الذي صار لآبائنا

33 إن الله قد أكمل هذا لنا نحن أولادهم، إذ أقام يسوع كما هو مكتوب أيضا في المزمور الثاني: أنت ابني، أنا اليوم ولدتك

34 إنه أقامه من الأموات، غير عتيد أن يعود أيضا إلى فساد، فهكذا قال: إني سأعطيكم مراحم داود الصادقة

35 ولذلك قال أيضا في مزمور آخر: لن تدع قدوسك يرى فسادا

36 لأن داود بعد ما خدم جيله بمشورة الله، رقد وانضم إلى آبائه، ورأى فسادا

37 وأما الذي أقامه الله فلم ير فسادا

38 فليكن معلوما عندكم أيها الرجال الإخوة، أنه بهذا ينادى لكم بغفران الخطايا

39 وبهذا يتبرر كل من يؤمن من كل ما لم تقدروا أن تتبرروا منه بناموس موسى

40 فانظروا لئلا يأتي عليكم ما قيل في الأنبياء

41 انظروا أيها المتهاونون، وتعجبوا واهلكوا لأنني عملا أعمل في أيامكم. عملا لا تصدقون إن أخبركم أحد به

القرائة الثانية : 2 تيموثاوس 2 :20-26

20 ولكن في بيت كبير ليس آنية من ذهب وفضة فقط، بل من خشب وخزف أيضا، وتلك للكرامة وهذه للهوان

21 فإن طهر أحد نفسه من هذه، يكون إناء للكرامة، مقدسا، نافعا للسيد، مستعدا لكل عمل صالح

22 أما الشهوات الشبابية فاهرب منها، واتبع البر والإيمان والمحبة والسلام مع الذين يدعون الرب من قلب نقي

23 والمباحثات الغبية والسخيفة اجتنبها، عالما أنها تولد خصومات

24 وعبد الرب لا يجب أن يخاصم، بل يكون مترفقا بالجميع، صالحا للتعليم، صبورا على المشقات

25 مؤدبا بالوداعة المقاومين، عسى أن يعطيهم الله توبة لمعرفة الحق

26 فيستفيقوا من فخ إبليس إذ قد اقتنصهم لإرادته

إنجيل مرقس 13: 32-36

32 وأما ذلك اليوم وتلك الساعة فلا يعلم بهما أحد، ولا الملائكة الذين في السماء، ولا الابن، إلا الآب

33 انظروا اسهروا وصلوا ، لأنكم لا تعلمون متى يكون الوقت

34 كأنما إنسان مسافر ترك بيته، وأعطى عبيده السلطان، ولكل واحد عمله، وأوصى البواب أن يسهر

35 اسهروا إذا، لأنكم لا تعلمون متى يأتي رب البيت، أمساء، أم نصف الليل، أم صياح الديك، أم صباحا

36 لئلا يأتي بغتة فيجدكم نياما


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

Jesus will always continue to open His arms because He wants my soul which He died for so He can embrace it.
سيظل يسوع فاتحًا ذراعيه باستمرار لأنه يريد نفسى التى مات عنها لكى يحتضنها
