رؤيا القدّيس يوحنّا05/من01حتى10/:”يا إِخوَتِي، رأَيْتُ في يَمِينِ ٱلجَالِسِ عَلى ٱلعَرْشِ كِتَابًا مَخْطُوطًا مِنَ ٱلدَّاخِلِ ومِنَ ٱلخَارِج، مَخْتُومًا بِسَبْعَةِ خُتُوم. وَرأَيتُ مَلاكًا قَوِيًّا يُنَادِي بِصَوتٍ عَظِيم: «مَنْ هُوَ ٱلمُسْتَحِقُّ أَنْ يَفْتَحَ ٱلكِتَابَ ويَفُضَّ خُتُومَهُ؟». فمَا كَانَ أَحَدٌ في ٱلسَّمَاءِ ولا عَلَى ٱلأَرْضِ ولا تَحْتَ ٱلأَرْضِ يَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ يَفْتَحَ ٱلكِتَاب، ولا أَنْ يَنْظُرَ إِلَيْه! فأَخَذْتُ أَبْكي بُكَاءً كَثِيرًا، لأَنَّهُ لَمْ يُوجَدْ أَحَدٌ مُسْتَحِقًّا أَنْ يَفْتَحَ ٱلكِتَاب، ولا أَنْ يَنْظُرَ إِلَيْه! فَقَالَ لي واحِدٌ مِنَ ٱلشُّيُوخ: «كُفَّ عَنِ ٱلبُكَاء! هُوَذَا ٱلأَسَدُ ٱلَّذي مِنْ سِبْطِ يَهُوذا، أَصْلُ داوُد، قَدْ ظَفِرَ لِيَفْتَحَ ٱلكِتاَبَ وخُتُومَهُ ٱلسَّبْعَة».ورَأَيْتُ في وَسَطِ ٱلعَرْشِ وٱلأَحْيَاءِ ٱلأَرْبَعَة، وفي وَسَطِ ٱلشُّيُوخ، حَمَلاً واقِفًا كَأَنَّهُ مَذْبُوح، لَهُ سَبْعَةُ قُرُونٍ وسَبْعُ أَعْيُن، هِيَ أَرْوَاحُ ٱللهِ ٱلسَّبْعَةُ ٱلْمُرْسَلَةُ إلى ٱلأَرْضِ كُلِّهَا، فَأَتَى وأَخَذَ ٱلكِتابَ مِنْ يَمِينِ ٱلجَالِسِ عَلى ٱلعَرْش. وَلَمَّا أَخَذَ ٱلكِتَاب، سَقَطَ ٱلأَحْيَاءُ ٱلأَرْبَعَةُ وٱلشُّيُوخُ ٱلأَرْبَعَةُ وٱلعِشْرُونَ أَمَامَ ٱلْحَمَل، ومَعَ كُلٍّ مِنْهُم قِيثَارَةٌ وكُؤُوسٌ مِنْ ذَهَبٍ مَلأَى بَخُورًا، هِيَ صَلَواتُ ٱلقِدِّيسِين، وَهُم يُرَنِّمُونَ تَرْنِيمَةً جَدِيدَةً قائِلِين: «إنَّكَ مُستَحِقٌّ أَن تَأْخُذَ ٱلكِتَاب، وتَفْتَحَ خُتُومَهُ، لأَنَّكَ ذُبِحْتَ وٱفْتَدَيْتَنَا للهِ بِدَمِكَ من كُلِّ قَبِيلةٍ وَلِسَانٍ وشَعْبٍ وأُمَّة، وَجَعَلْتَنا لإِلهِنا مَمْلَكَةً وكَهَنَة، وَسَنَملِكُ عَلى ٱلأَرْض».

You have made them to be a kingdom and priests serving our God, and they will reign on earth
Book of Revelation 05/01-10/:”Then I saw in the right hand of the one seated on the throne a scroll written on the inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals; and I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, ‘Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?’And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it. And I began to weep bitterly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it. Then one of the elders said to me, ‘Do not weep. See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.’ Then I saw between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders a Lamb standing as if it had been slaughtered, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. He went and took the scroll from the right hand of the one who was seated on the throne. When he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell before the Lamb, each holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. They sing a new song: ‘You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slaughtered and by your blood you ransomed for God saints from every tribe and language and people and nation; you have made them to be a kingdom and priests serving our God, and they will reign on earth.’”

 جيْلٌ شِرِّيرٌ فَاجِرٌ يَطْلُبُ آيَة، ولَنْ يُعْطَى آيَةً إِلاَّ آيَةَ يُونَانَ النَّبِيّ
إنجيل القدّيس متّىمى/12/من38حتى42/:”أَجَابَ بَعْضُ الكَتَبَةِ والفَرِّيِسِيِّينَ يَسوعَ قَائِلين: «يَا مُعَلِّم، نُرِيدُ أَنْ نَرَى مِنْكَ آيَة». فَأَجَابَ وقَالَ لَهُم: «جِيْلٌ شِرِّيرٌ فَاجِرٌ يَطْلُبُ آيَة، ولَنْ يُعْطَى آيَةً إِلاَّ آيَةَ يُونَانَ النَّبِيّ. فكَمَا كَانَ يُونَانُ في بَطْنِ الحُوتِ ثَلاثَةَ أَيَّامٍ وثَلاثَ لَيَال، كَذلِكَ سَيَكُونُ ٱبْنُ الإِنْسَانِ في قَلْبِ الأَرْضِ ثَلاثةَ أَيَّامٍ وثَلاثَ لَيَال. رِجَالُ نِينَوَى سَيَقُومُونَ في الدَّيْنُونَةِ مَعَ هذَا الجِيلِ ويَدِينُونَهُ، لأَنَّهُم تَابُوا بِإِنْذَارِ يُونَان، وهَا هُنَا أَعْظَمُ مِنْ يُونَان! مَلِكَةُ الجَنُوبِ سَتَقُومُ في الدَّيْنُونَةِ مَعَ هذَا الجِيلِ وتَدِينُهُ، لأَنَّهَا جَاءَتْ مِنْ أَقَاصِي الأَرضِ لِتَسْمَعَ حِكْمَةَ سُلَيْمَان، وهَا هُنَا أَعْظَمُ مِنْ سُلَيْمَان!

An evil and adulterous generation asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 12/38-42/:”Some of the scribes and Pharisees said to Jesus, ‘Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.’But he answered them, ‘An evil and adulterous generation asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For just as Jonah was for three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so for three days and three nights the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth. The people of Nineveh will rise up at the judgement with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the proclamation of Jonah, and see, something greater than Jonah is here! The queen of the South will rise up at the judgement with this generation and condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to listen to the wisdom of Solomon, and see, something greater than Solomon is here!”
