احْذَرُوا لأَنْفُسِكُم لِئَلاَّ تَثْقُلَ قُلُوبُكُم في الخَلاعَة، وَالسُّكْر، وَهُمُومِ الحَيَاة
إنجيل القدّيس لوقا21/من34حتى38/قالَ الربُّ يَسوع: «إِحْذَرُوا لأَنْفُسِكُم لِئَلاَّ تَثْقُلَ قُلُوبُكُم في الخَلاعَة، وَالسُّكْر، وَهُمُومِ الحَيَاة، فَيُفَاجِئَكُم ذلِكَ اليَوم؛ لأَنَّهُ سَيُطْبِقُ مِثْلَ الفَخِّ عَلى جَمِيعِ المُقِيمِينَ عَلَى وَجْهِ الأَرْضِ كُلِّهَا. فٱسْهَرُوا في كُلِّ وَقْتٍ مُصَلِّينَ لِكَي تَسْتَطِيعُوا أَنْ تَهْرُبُوا مِنْ كُلِّ هذِهِ الأُمُورِ المُزْمِعَةِ أَنْ تَحْدُث، وَتَقِفُوا أَمَامَ ٱبْنِ الإِنْسَان». وكانَ يَسُوعُ في النَّهَارِ يُعَلِّمُ في الهَيْكَل، وَفي اللَّيْلِ يَخْرُجُ وَيَبِيتُ في الجَبَلِ المَعْرُوفِ بِجَبَلِ الزَّيْتُون. وكانَ الشَّعْبُ كُلُّه يَأْتِي إِلَيْهِ عِنْدَ الفَجْرِ في الهَيْكَلِ لِيَسْتَمِعَ إِلَيْه”.

Be on guard so that your hearts are not weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of this life
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 21/34-38/:”‘Be on guard so that your hearts are not weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of this life, and that day does not catch you unexpectedly, like a trap. For it will come upon all who live on the face of the whole earth. Be alert at all times, praying that you may have the strength to escape all these things that will take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.’Every day he was teaching in the temple, and at night he would go out and spend the night on the Mount of Olives, as it was called. And all the people would get up early in the morning to listen to him in the temple.”

ٱلْمَدْعُوُّ إِبْلِيسَ وٱلشَّيْطَان، مُضَلِّلُ ٱلْمَسْكُونَةِ بِأَسْرِهَا، أُلْقِيَ إِلى ٱلأَرْض، وأُلْقِيَ مَعَهُ مَلائِكَتُهُ
رؤيا القدّيس يوحنّا12/من01حتى12/:”يا إِخوَتِي، ظَهَرَتْ آيَةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ في ٱلسَّماء، ٱمْرَأَةٌ مُوَشَّحَةٌ بٱلشَّمْس، وتَحْتَ رِجْلَيْهَا ٱلقَمَر، وعَلى رَأْسِها إِكْلِيلٌ مِنِ ٱثْنَي عَشَر كَوْكَبًا، وَهِيَ حُبْلَى تَصْرُخُ مُتَمَخِّضَةً مُتَوَجِّعَةً لِتَلِد. وَظَهَرَتْ آيَةٌ أُخْرَى في ٱلسَّمَاء، فَإِذا تِنِّينٌ أَحْمَرُ عَظِيم، لَهُ سَبْعَةُ رُؤُوسٍ وعَشَرةُ قُرُون، وعلى رُؤُوسِهِ سَبْعَةُ تِيجَان. وَذَنَبُهُ يَجُرُّ ثُلْثَ كَوَاكِبِ ٱلسَّمَاء، فأَلقَاهَا على ٱلأَرْض. ووَقَفَ ٱلتِّنِّينُ أَمَامَ ٱلْمَرْأَةِ ٱلمُشْرِفَةِ عَلى ٱلوِلادَة، لِيَبْتَلِعَ وَلَدَهَا حِينَ تَلِدُهُ. وَوَلَدَتِ ٱبْنًا ذَكَرًا، وهُوَ ٱلمُزْمِعُ أَن يَرْعَى جَمِيعَ ٱلأُمَمِ بِعَصًا مِنْ حَدِيد، فَخُطِفَ وَلَدُهَا إِلى ٱلله وإِلى عَرْشِهِ. وَهَرَبَتِ ٱلمَرْأَةُ إِلى ٱلبَرِّيَّة، حَيْثُ أَعَدَّ لَهَا ٱللهُ مَوْضِعًا، لِكَي يَقُوتَها هُنَاكَ أَلْفًا ومِئَتَيْنِ وَسِتِّينَ يَومًا. وَحَدَثَتْ حَرْبٌ في ٱلسَّماء، مِيخَائِيلُ وَمَلائِكَتُهُ يُحَارِبُونَ ٱلتِّنِّين. وٱلتِّنِّينُ وَمَلائِكَتُهُ حَارَبُوا فَمَا قَدِرُوا، ولا وُجِدَ لَهُم مَوْضِعٌ بَعْدُ في ٱلسَّمَاء. وأُلْقِيَ ٱلتِّنِّينُ ٱلعَظِيم، ٱلْحَيَّةُ ٱلقَدِيْمَة، ٱلْمَدْعُوُّ إِبْلِيسَ وٱلشَّيْطَان، مُضَلِّلُ ٱلْمَسْكُونَةِ بِأَسْرِهَا، أُلْقِيَ إِلى ٱلأَرْض، وأُلْقِيَ مَعَهُ مَلائِكَتُهُ. وَسَمِعْتُ صَوْتًا عَظِيمًا في ٱلسَّمَاءِ يَقُول: «أَلآنَ صَارَ لإِلهِنَا ٱلخَلاصُ وٱلقُدْرَةُ وٱلمَلَكُوتُ وَلِمَسِيحِهِ ٱلسُّلْطَان، لأَنَّ ٱلَّذي يَشْكُو إِخْوَتَنا قَدْ أُلْقِيَ إِلى ٱلأَرْض، ذَاكَ ٱلَّذي كانَ يَشْكُوهُم أَمَامَ إِلهِنَا نَهارًا ولَيْلاً. وهُم ظَفِرُوا عَلَيهِ بِدَمِ ٱلحَمَل، وَبِكَلِمَةِ شَهَادَتِهِم، وما فَضَّلُوا حَيَاتَهُم على ٱلمَوْت. لِذلِكَ تَهَلَّلِي، أَيَّتُها ٱلسَّمَاوَات، ويَا أَيُّها ٱلْمُقِيمُونَ فيهَا. وٱلوَيلُ للأَرْضِ وٱلبَحْر، لأَنَّ إِبْلِيسَ هَبَطَ إِلَيْكُما، وَبِهِ سُخْطٌ شَدِيد، لِعِلْمِهِ أَنَّ لَهُ وَقْتًا قَلِيلاً».

The great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan
Book of Revelation 12/01-12/:”A great portent appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pangs, in the agony of giving birth. Then another portent appeared in heaven: a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. Then the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bear a child, so that he might devour her child as soon as it was born. And she gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron. But her child was snatched away and taken to God and to his throne; and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, so that there she can be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.And war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back, but they were defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, proclaiming, ‘Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Messiah, for the accuser of our comrades has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. But they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not cling to life even in the face of death. Rejoice then, you heavens and those who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you with great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!’”
