مَنْ لَيْسَ عَلَيْنَا فَهُوَ مَعَنَا. ومَنْ سَقَاكُم كَأْسَ مَاءٍ بِٱسْمِي عَلَى أَنَّكُم لِلْمَسِيح، فَٱلْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُم: إِنَّهُ لَنْ يَفْقِدَ أَجْرَهُ/Whoever is not against us is for us.

مَنْ لَيْسَ عَلَيْنَا فَهُوَ مَعَنَا. ومَنْ سَقَاكُم كَأْسَ مَاءٍ بِٱسْمِي عَلَى أَنَّكُم لِلْمَسِيح، فَٱلْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُم: إِنَّهُ لَنْ يَفْقِدَ أَجْرَهُ
إنجيل القدّيس مرقس09/من38حتى50/”قالَ يُوحَنَّا ليَسُوع: «يَا مُعَلِّم، رَأَيْنَا رَجُلاً يُخْرِجُ الشَّيَاطِينَ بِٱسْمِكَ، وهُوَ لا يَتْبَعُنا. فمَنَعْنَاه، لأَنَّهُ لايَتْبَعُنا». فقالَ يَسُوع: «لا تَمْنَعُوه، فَمَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ يَصْنَعُ عَمَلاً قَدِيرًا بِٱسْمِي، ويَقْدِرُ بَعْدَها أَنْ يَقُولَ فِيَّ سُوءًا؛ لأَنَّ مَنْ لَيْسَ عَلَيْنَا فَهُوَ مَعَنَا. ومَنْ سَقَاكُم كَأْسَ مَاءٍ بِٱسْمِي عَلَى أَنَّكُم لِلْمَسِيح، فَٱلْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُم: إِنَّهُ لَنْ يَفْقِدَ أَجْرَهُ. ومَنْ شَكَّكَ وَاحِدًا مِنْ هؤُلاءِ الصِّغَارِ المُؤْمِنين، فَخَيْرٌ لَهُ أَنْ يُطَوَّقَ عُنُقُهُ بِرَحَى الحِمَار، وَيُلْقَى في البَحْر. وإِنْ كَانَتْ يَدُكَ سبَبَ عَثْرَةٍ لَكَ فَٱقْطَعْها. خَيْرٌ لَكَ أَنْ تَدْخُلَ الحَيَاةَ وأَنْتَ أَقْطَع، مِنْ أَنْ يَكُونَ لَكَ يَدَانِ وتَذْهَبَ إِلى جَهَنَّم، إِلى النَّارِ الَّتي لا تُطْفَأ…. وإِنْ كَانَتْ رِجْلُكَ سَبَبَ عَثْرَةٍ لَكَ فَٱقْطَعْها. خَيْرٌ لَكَ أَنْ تَدْخُلَ الحَيَاةَ وَأَنْتَ أَعْرَج، مِنْ أَنْ يَكُونَ لَكَ رِجْلانِ وَتُلْقَى في جَهَنَّم…. وإِنْ كَانَتْ عَيْنُكَ سَبَبَ عَثْرَةٍ لَكَ فَٱقْلَعْها. خَيْرٌ لَكَ أَنْ تَدْخُلَ مَلَكُوتَ اللهِ وَأَنْتَ أَعْوَر، مِنْ أَنْ يَكُونَ لَكَ عَيْنَانِ وتُلْقَى في جَهَنَّم، حَيْثُ دُودُهُم لا يَمُوت، ونَارُهُم لا تَنْطَفِئ. فكُلُّ وَاحِدٍ سَيُمَلَّحُ بِٱلنَّار. جَيِّدٌ هُوَ المِلْح. ولكِنْ إِذَا فَقَدَ المِلْحُ مُلُوحَتَهُ، فَبِمَاذَا تُعِيدُونَ إِلَيْهِ طَعْمَهُ؟ فَلْيَكُنْ فِيكُم مِلْحٌ وسَالِمُوا بَعْضُكُم بَعْضًا».”

Whoever is not against us is for us. For truly I tell you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name of Christ will by no means lose the reward.
Mark 09/38-50: “John said to Jesus, ‘Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us.’But Jesus said, ‘Do not stop him; for no one who does a deed of power in my name will be able soon afterwards to speak evil of me. Whoever is not against us is for us. For truly I tell you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name of Christ will by no means lose the reward. ‘If any of you put a stumbling-block before one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for you if a great millstone were hung around your neck and you were thrown into the sea. If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life maimed than to have two hands and to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire. And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame than to have two feet and to be thrown into hell.+t,+u And if your eye causes you to stumble, tear it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and to be thrown into hell, where their worm never dies, and the fire is never quenched. ‘For everyone will be salted with fire.”Salt is good; but if salt has lost its saltiness, how can you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.’”

إِنِّي عَالمٌ بأَعْمَالِكَ وتَعَبِكَ وَثَبَاتِكَ، وأَنَّكَ لا تُطِيقُ ٱحْتِمَالَ ٱلأَشْرَار، وقَدِ ٱمْتَحَنْتَ ٱلَّذِينَ يَزْعَمُونَ أَنَّهُم رُسُل، وَهُم لَيْسُوا بِرُسُل، فَوَجَدْتَهُم كَاذِبِين
رؤيا القدّيس يوحنّا02/من01حتى07/”يا إِخوَتِي، قالَ ليَ ابْنُ الإِنسان: «أُكْتُبْ إِلى مَلاَكِ ٱلكَنِيسَةِ ٱلَّتي في أَفَسُس: هذَا ما يَقُولُهُ ٱلقَابِضُ بِيَدِهِ ٱليُمْنَى على ٱلكَواكِبِ ٱلسَّبْعَة، ٱلمَاشِي في وَسَطِ ٱلمَنَائِرِ ٱلسَّبْعِ ٱلذَّهَبِيَّة: إِنِّي عَالمٌ بأَعْمَالِكَ وتَعَبِكَ وَثَبَاتِكَ، وأَنَّكَ لا تُطِيقُ ٱحْتِمَالَ ٱلأَشْرَار، وقَدِ ٱمْتَحَنْتَ ٱلَّذِينَ يَزْعَمُونَ أَنَّهُم رُسُل، وَهُم لَيْسُوا بِرُسُل، فَوَجَدْتَهُم كَاذِبِين.فَإِنَّكَ ثَابِت، وقَدِ ٱحْتَمَلْتَ مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱسْمِي، وَلَمْ تَتْعَبْ! ولكِنْ لي عَلَيْكَ أَنَّكَ تَرَكْتَ مَحَبَّتَكَ ٱلأُولى. فَتَذَكَّرْ إِذًا مِنْ أَيْنَ سَقَطْتَ وَتُبْ، وٱعْمَلْ أَعْمَالَكَ ٱلأُولى؛ وإِلاَّ فَإِنِّي آتِيك، وأُزَحْزِحُ مَنَارَتَكَ مِنْ مَوْضِعِها، إِنْ لَمْ تَتُبْ. وَلكِنْ عِنْدَكَ هذا أَنَّكَ تَمْقُتُ أَعْمَالَ ٱلنِّيقُولاوِيِّين، ٱلَّتي أَنا أَيضًا أَمْقُتُها. مَنْ لَهُ أُذُنَانِ فَلْيَسْمَعْ ما يَقُولُهُ ٱلرُّوحُ لِلْكَنَائِس: ٱلظَّافِرُ أُعْطِيهِ أَنْ يَأْكُلَ مِنْ شَجَرَةِ ٱلحَيَاة، ٱلَّتي في فِرْدَوْسِ ٱلله.”

I also know that you are enduring patiently and bearing up for the sake of my name, and that you have not grown weary
Book of Revelation 02/01-07: “‘To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks among the seven golden lampstands: ‘I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance. I know that you cannot tolerate evildoers; you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them to be false. I also know that you are enduring patiently and bearing up for the sake of my name, and that you have not grown weary. But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember then from what you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent. Yet this is to your credit: you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches. To everyone who conquers, I will give permission to eat from the tree of life that is in the paradise of God.”
