إِنْ يُبْغِضْكُمُ العَالَم، فَٱعْلَمُوا أَنَّهُ أَبْغَضَنِي قَبْلَكُم. لَوْ كُنْتُم مِنَ العَالَمِ لَكَانَ العَالَمُ يُحِبُّ مَا هُوَ لَهُ. ولكِنْ، لأَنَّكُم لَسْتُم مِنَ العَالَم، بَلْ أَنَا ٱخْتَرْتُكُم مِنَ العَالَم، لِذلِكَ يُبْغِضُكُمُ العَالَم/The world hated me before it hated you & hated me before you. You do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world therefore the world hates you.
The world hated me before it hated you & hated me before you. You do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world therefore the world hates you.
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 15/18-21:”‘If the world hates you, be aware that it hated me before it hated you. If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own. Because you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, “Servants are not greater than their master.” If they persecuted me, they will persecute you; if they kept my word, they will keep yours also.But they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me.”
Ananias,You did not lie to us but to God!’ Now when Ananias heard these words, he fell down and died.
Acts of the Apostles 05/01-11:”But a man named Ananias, with the consent of his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property; with his wife’s knowledge, he kept back some of the proceeds, and brought only a part and laid it at the apostles’ feet. ‘Ananias,’ Peter asked, ‘why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back part of the proceeds of the land? While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, were not the proceeds at your disposal? How is it that you have contrived this deed in your heart? You did not lie to us but to God!’ Now when Ananias heard these words, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard of it. The young men came and wrapped up his body, then carried him out and buried him. After an interval of about three hours his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. Peter said to her, ‘Tell me whether you and your husband sold the land for such and such a price.’ And she said, ‘Yes, that was the price.’Then Peter said to her, ‘How is it that you have agreed together to put the Spirit of the Lord to the test? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out.’ Immediately she fell down at his feet and died. When the young men came in they found her dead, so they carried her out and buried her beside her husband.And great fear seized the whole church and all who heard of these things.”
