فيلبّي 3: 17 – 4: 1 


يا إِخوَتِي، إِقْتَدُوا بِي، وٱنْظُرُوا إِلى الَّذِينَ يَسْلُكُونَ على مِثَالِنَا. فَكَثِيرٌ مِنْ أُولئِكَ الَّذِينَ كُنْتُ أُكَلِّمُكُم عَنْهُم مِرَارًا، وأُكَلِّمُكُم عَنْهُمُ الآنَ باكِيًا، يَسْلُكُونَ كأَعْدَاءٍ لِصَلِيبِ المَسِيح، أُولئِكَ الَّذِينَ عَاقِبَتُهُمُ الهَلاك، أُولئِكَ الَّذينَ إِلهُهُم بَطْنُهُم، ومَجْدُهُم في عَارِهِم، وفي أُمُورِ الأَرْضِ هُمُّهُم. أَمَّا نَحْنُ فمَدِينَتُنَا في السَّمَاوَات، ومِنْهَا نَنْتَظِرُ الرَّبَّ يَسُوعَ المَسِيحَ مُخَلِّصًا. وهوَ سَيُغَيِّرُ جَسَدَ هَوَانِنَا، فيَجْعَلُهُ على صُورَةِ جَسَدِ مَجْدِهِ، وَفْقًا لِعَمَلِ قُدْرَتِهِ، الَّتي بِهَا يُخْضِعُ لِنَفْسِهِ كُلَّ شَيء. إِذًا، يَا إِخْوَتِي، الَّذِينَ أُحِبُّهُم وأَشْتَاقُ إِلَيْهِم، وأَنْتُم فَرَحِي وإِكْلِيلي، أُثْبُتُوا هكذَا في الرَّبّ، أَيُّهَا الأَحِبَّاء


الإنجيل

متّى 24: 23 – 31


قالَ الرَّبُّ يَسوع: ’إِنْ قَالَ لَكُم أَحَد: ’هُوَذَا المَسِيحُ هُنَا أَوْ هُنَاك!‘ فَلا تُصَدِّقُوا. فَسَوْفَ يَقُومُ مُسَحَاءُ كَذَبَةٌ وأَنْبِيَاءُ كَذَبَة، ويَأْتُونَ بِآيَاتٍ عَظِيمَةٍ وخَوارِق، لِيُضِلُّوا المُخْتَارِينَ أَنْفُسَهُم، لَو قَدِرُوا. هَا إِنِّي قَدْ أَنْبَأْتُكُم! فَإِنْ قَالُوا لَكُم: ’هَا هُوَ في البَرِّيَّة!‘ فلا تَخْرُجُوا، أَو: ’هَا هُوَ في دَاخِلِ البَيْت!‘ فَلا تُصَدِّقُوا. فكَمَا أَنَّ البَرْقَ يُومِضُ مِنَ المَشَارِق، ويَسْطَعُ حَتَّى المَغَارِب، هكَذَا يَكُونُ مَجِيءُ ٱبْنِ الإِنْسَان. حَيْثُ تَكُونُ الجُثَّةُ هُنَاكَ تَجْتَمِعُ النُّسُور. وحَالًا بَعْدَ ضِيقِ تِلْكَ الأَيَّام، أَلشَّمْسُ تُظْلِم، والقَمَرُ لا يُعْطِي ضَوءَهُ، والنُّجُومُ تَتَسَاقَطُ مِنَ السَّمَاء، وقُوَّاتُ السَّمَاوَاتِ تَتَزَعْزَع. وحينَئِذٍ تَظْهَرُ في السَّمَاءِ عَلامَةُ ٱبْنِ الإِنْسَان، فَتَنْتَحِبُ قَبَائِلُ الأَرْضِ كُلُّها، وتَرَى ٱبْنَ الإِنْسَانِ آتِيًا على سُحُبِ السَّمَاءِ بِقُدْرَةٍ ومَجْدٍ عَظِيم. ويُرْسِلُ مَلائِكَتَهُ يَنْفُخُونَ في بُوقٍ عَظِيم، فيَجْمَعُونَ مُخْتَارِيهِ مِنَ الرِّيَاحِ الأَرْبَع، مِنْ أَقَاصي السَّمَاوَاتِ إِلى أَقَاصِيهَا‘


Lettre

Philippiens 3: 17 – 4: 1


Frères, ensemble imitez-moi, et regardez bien ceux qui se conduisent selon l’exemple que nous vous donnons. Car je vous l’ai souvent dit, et maintenant je le redis en pleurant: beaucoup de gens se conduisent en ennemis de la Croix du Christ. Ils vont à leur perte. Leur dieu, c’est leur ventre, et ils mettent leur gloire dans ce qui fait leur honte; ils ne pensent qu’aux choses de la terre. Mais nous, nous avons notre citoyenneté dans les Cieux, d’où nous attendons comme Sauveur le Seigneur Jésus Christ, Lui Qui transformera nos pauvres corps à l’image de Son Corps glorieux, avec la puissance active qui Le rend même capable de tout mettre sous Son pouvoir. Ainsi, mes frères bien-aimés pour qui j’ai tant d’affection, vous, ma joie et ma couronne, tenez bon dans le Seigneur, mes bien-aimés


Évangile

Matthieu 24: 23 – 31


‘Alors si quelqu’un vous dit: ‘Voilà le Messie! Il est là!’ ou bien encore: ‘Il est là!’, n’en croyez rien. Il surgira des faux messies et des faux prophètes, ils produiront des signes grandioses et des prodiges, au point d’égarer, si c’était possible, même les élus. Voilà: Je vous l’ai dit à l’avance. Si l’on vous dit: ‘Le voilà dans le désert’, ne sortez pas. Si l’on vous dit: ‘Le voilà dans le fond de la maison’, n’en croyez rien. En effet, comme l’éclair part de l’orient et brille jusqu’à l’occident, ainsi sera la venue du Fils de l’Homme. Selon le proverbe: Là où se trouve le cadavre, là se rassembleront les vautours. Aussitôt après la détresse de ces jours-là, le soleil s’obscurcira et la lune ne donnera plus sa clarté; les étoiles tomberont du ciel et les puissances célestes seront ébranlées. Alors paraîtra dans le ciel le signe du Fils de l’Homme; alors toutes les tribus de la terre se frapperont la poitrine et verront le Fils de l’Homme venir sur les nuées du ciel, avec puissance et grande gloire. Il enverra Ses anges avec une trompette retentissante, et ils rassembleront Ses élus des quatre coins du monde, d’une extrémité des cieux jusqu’à l’autre’


Letter

Philippians 3: 17 – 4: 1


Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern. For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the Cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things. For our citizenship is in Heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, Who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious Body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. Therefore, my beloved and longed-for brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, beloved


Gospel

Matthew 24: 23 – 31


Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other’

ወደ ፊልጵስዩስ ሰዎች 3: 17 – 4: 1


ወንድሞች ሆይ፥ እኔን የምትመስሉ ሁኑ፥ እኛም እንደ ምሳሌ እንደምንሆንላችሁ፥ እንዲሁ የሚመላለሱትን ተመልከቱ። ብዙዎች ለክርስቶስ መስቀል ጠላቶቹ ሆነው ይመላለሳሉና፤ ብዙ ጊዜ ስለ እነርሱ አልኋችሁ፥ አሁንም እንኳ እያለቀስሁ እላለሁ። መጨረሻቸው ጥፋት ነው፥ ሆዳቸው አምላካቸው ነው፥ ክብራቸው በነውራቸው ነው፥ አሳባቸው ምድራዊ ነው። እኛ አገራችን በሰማይ ነውና፥ ከዚያም ደግሞ የሚመጣ መድኃኒትን እርሱንም ጌታን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስን እንጠባበቃለን፤ እርሱም ሁሉን እንኳ ለራሱ ሊያስገዛ እንደሚችልበት አሠራር፥ ክቡር ሥጋውን እንዲመስል የተዋረደውን ሥጋችንን ይለውጣል። ስለዚህ፥ የምወዳችሁና የምናፍቃችሁ፥ ደስታዬና አክሊሌ የምትሆኑ ወንድሞቼ ሆይ፥ እንዲሁ በጌታ ቁሙ፥ ወዳጆች ሆይ።


ወንጌል  

የማቴዎስ ወንጌል 24: 23 – 31


በዚያን ጊዜ ማንም። እነሆ፥ ክርስቶስ ከዚህ አለ ወይም። ከዚያ አለ ቢላችሁ አትመኑ፤ ሐሰተኞች ክርስቶሶችና ሐሰተኞች ነቢያት ይነሣሉና፥ ቢቻላቸውስ የተመረጡትን እንኳ እስኪያስቱ ድረስ ታላላቅ ምልክትና ድንቅ ያሳያሉ። እነሆ፥ አስቀድሜ ነገርኋችሁ። እንግዲህ። እነሆ፥ በበረሀ ነው ቢሉአችሁ፥ አትውጡ፤ እነሆ፥ በእልፍኝ ነው ቢሉአችሁ፥ አትመኑ፤ መብረቅ ከምሥራቅ ወጥቶ እስከ ምዕራብ እንደሚታይ፥ የሰው ልጅ መምጣት እንዲሁ ይሆናልና፤ በድን ወዳለበት በዚያ አሞራዎች ይሰበሰባሉ። ከዚያች ወራትም መከራ በኋላ ወዲያው ፀሐይ ይጨልማል፥ ጨረቃም ብርሃንዋን አትሰጥም፥ ከዋክብትም ከሰማይ ይወድቃሉ፥ የሰማያትም ኃይላት ይናወጣሉ። በዚያን ጊዜም የሰው ልጅ ምልክት በሰማይ ይታያል፥ በዚያን ጊዜም የምድር ወገኖች ሁሉ ዋይ ዋይ ይላሉ፥ የሰው ልጅንም በኃይልና በብዙ ክብር በሰማይ ደመና ሲመጣ ያዩታል፤ መላእክቱንም ከታላቅ መለከት ድምፅ ጋር ይልካቸዋል፥ ከሰማያትም ዳርቻ እስከ ዳርቻው ከአራቱ ነፋሳት ለእርሱ የተመረጡትን ይሰበስባሉ።
