Reading 3, 1Jn 4:1-6 : Discern the Spirit of God

1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit which confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,
3 and every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God. This is the spirit of antichrist, of which you heard that it was coming, and now it is in the world already.
4 Little children, you are of God, and have overcome them; for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
5 They are of the world, therefore what they say is of the world, and the world listens to them.
6 We are of God. Whoever knows God listens to us, and he who is not of God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.


Gospel, Mk 13:14-23 : The time of great calamities

14 "But when you see the desolating sacrilege set up where it ought not to be (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains;
15 let him who is on the housetop not go down, nor enter his house, to take anything away;
16 and let him who is in the field not turn back to take his mantle.
17 And alas for those who are with child and for those who give suck in those days!
18 Pray that it may not happen in winter.
19 For in those days there will be such tribulation as has not been from the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will be.
20 And if the Lord had not shortened the days, no human being would be saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom he chose, he shortened the days.
21 And then if any one says to you, `Look, here is the Christ!' or `Look, there he is!' do not believe it.
22 False Christs and false prophets will arise and show signs and wonders, to lead astray, if possible, the elect.
23 But take heed; I have told you all things beforehand.
