And measures and matters of The Truth of the "time" we are in ...how "man" ..."thought to change time and times ...
Dearly beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, how that one day is with the Lord, as a thousand year, and a thousand year as one day.
The Lord is not slack to fulfil his promise, as some men count slackness: but is patient to us ward, and would have no man lost, but would receive all men to repentance.
Behold in a dread nightmare of the dark season ...of the times and time ..of the season of man ...see son of man ...
and i was awakened in the darkness ...
even a dread darkness ...
and words came to me ...to WAKE ME UP.
and the words were "NOT ANOTHER DAY"
even as though another day would not pass.
even as the day of reckoning.
and scripture came back to remembrance...
THE SECOND EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 3
This is the second epistle that I now write unto you, beloved, wherewith I stir up, and warn your pure minds, to call to remembrance the words which were told before of the holy Prophets, and also the commandment of us the Apostles of the Lord and saviour.
This first understand that there shall come in the last days mockers, which will walk after their own lusts and say, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers died, all things continue in the same estate wherein they were at the beginning. This they know not (and that willingly) how that the heavens a great while ago were, and the earth that was in the water, appeared up out of the water, by the word of God: by the which things the world that then was, perished, overflowen with the water. But the heavens verily and earth which are now, are kept by the same word in store, and reserved unto fire, against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
Dearly beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, how that one day is with the Lord, as a thousand year, and a thousand year as one day. The Lord is not slack to fulfil his promise, as some men count slackness: but is patient to us ward, and would have no man lost, but would receive all men to repentance.
Nevertheless the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in the which day, the heavens shall perish with terrible noise, and the elements shall melt with heat, and the earth with the works that are therein shall burn.
If all these things shall perish, what manner persons ought ye to be in holy conversation and godliness: looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, in which the heavens shall perish with fire, and the elements shall be consumed with heat. Nevertheless we look for a new heaven and a new earth, according to his promise, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Wherefore dearly beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot and undefiled. And suppose that the long suffering of the Lord is salvation, even as our dearly beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given unto him, wrote to you, yee, almost in every epistle speaking of such things: among which are many things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable, pervert, as they do other scriptures unto their own destruction. Ye therefore beloved, seeing ye know it beforehand, beware lest ye be also plucked away with the error of the wicked, and fall from your own steadfastness: but grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. To whom be glory both now and for ever. Amen
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 7
Not all they that say unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter in to the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth my fathers will which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not in thy name Prophesied? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name have done many miracles? And then will I knowledge unto them that I never knew them. Depart from me, ye workers of iniquity.
Whosoever heareth of me these sayings and doeth the same, I will liken him unto a wise man which built his house on a rock: and abundance of rain descended, and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that same house, and it fell not, because it was grounded on the rock. And whosoever heareth of me these sayings and doth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man which built his house upon the land: and abundance of rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 22
When the Pharisees had heard, how that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they drew to gether, and one of them which was a doctor of law, asked a question tempting him and saying: Master, which is the chief commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him: Love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and the chief commandment. And there is another like unto this. Love thine neighbor as thyself. In these two commandments hang all the law and the Prophets.
While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them saying: what think ye of Christ? Whose son is he? They said unto him, the son of David. He said unto them: how then doth David in spirit, call him Lord saying: The Lord said to my Lord, sit on my right hand till I make thine enemies thy footstool. If David call him Lord: how is he then his son? And none could answer him again one word: neither durst any from that day forth, ask him any more questions
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 24
Learn a similitude of the fig tree: when his branches are yet tender and his leaves sprung, ye know that summer is nigh. So likewise ye, when ye see all these things, be ye sure that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass till all these be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall perish, but my words shall abide. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no not the angels of heaven, but my father only.
As the time of Noe was, so likewise shall the coming of the son of man be. For as in the days before the flood: they did eat and drink, marry, and were married, even unto the day that Noe entered in to the ship, and knew of nothing, till the flood came and took them all away: So shall also the coming of the son of man be. Then two shall be in the fields, the one shall be received, and the other shall be refused, two shall be grinding at the mill the one shall be received, and the other shall be refused. Wake therefore, because ye know not what hour your master will come. Of this be sure, that if the good man of the house knew what hour the thief would come: he would surely watch, and not suffer his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready, for in the hour ye think he would not: will the son of man come. If there be any faithful servant and wise, whom his master hath made ruler over his household to give them meat in season convenient, happy is that servant whom his master (when he cometh) shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, my master will defer his coming, and begin to smite his fellows, ye and to eat and to drink with the drunken: that servants master will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not ware of, and will divide him, and give him his reward with hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 26
When the evening was come he sat down with the twelve. And as they did eat, he said: Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him: is it I master? He answered and said: he that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me. The son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe be to that man, by whom the son of man shall be betrayed. It had been good for that man, if he had never been born. Then Judas which betrayed him, answered and said: is it I master? He said unto him: thou hast said. As they did eat, Jesus took bread and gave thanks, brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said: Take, eat, this is my body. And he took the cup, and thanked, and gave it them, saying: drink of it every one. For this is my blood of the new testament, that shall be shed for many, for the *remission of sins. I say unto you: I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine tree, until that day, when I shall drink it new with you in my fathers kingdom.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 10
Go not from house to house: and into whatsoever city ye enter, if they receive you, eat such things as are set before you, and heal the sick that are there, and say unto them: the kingdom of God is come nigh upon you. But into whatsoever city ye shall enter, if they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same and say: even the very dust, which cleaveth on us of your city, we wipe off against you: Notwithstanding, mark this that the kingdom of God was come nigh upon you. Yea and I say unto you, that it shall be easier in that day for *Zodome than for that city.
*Zodome (Sodom) *Herusalem (Jerusalem) *Herico (Jericho)
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 17
And he said unto the disciples: The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one day of the son of man, and ye shall not see it. And they shall say to you: See here, See there. Go not after them, nor follow them, for as the lightning that appeareth out of the one part of the heaven: and shineth unto the other part of heaven. So shall the son of man be in his days. But first must he suffer many things, and be refused of this nation.
As it happened in the time of Noe: So shall it be in the time of the son of man. They ate, they drank, they married wives and were married, even unto the same day that Noe went into the Ark: and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise also, as it chanced in the days of Lot. They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built. And even the same day that Lot went out of *Zodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. After these examples, shall it be in the day when the son of man shall appear.
At that day he that is on the house top and his stuff in the house: let him not come down to take it out. And likewise let not him that is in the fields, turn back again to that he left behind. Remember Lots wife. Whosoever will go about to save his life, shall lose it: And whosoever shall lose his life, shall save it. I tell you in that night, there shall be two in one bed, that one shall be received and the other shall be forsaken. Two shall be also a grinding together: the one shall be received, and the other forsaken. And they answered, and said unto him: where Lord? And he said unto them: wheresoever the body shall be, thither will the eagles resort

And he showed them a similitude: behold the fig tree, and all other trees, when they shoot forth their buds, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is then nigh at hand. So like wise ye (when ye see these things come to pass) understand, that the kingdom of God is nigh. Verily I say unto you: this generation shall not pass, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass: but my words shall not pass.
Take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be overcome with *surfeiting and drunkenness and cares of this world: and that, that day come on you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that sit on the face of the earth. Watch therefore continually and pray, that ye may obtain grace to fly all this that shall come, and that ye may stand before the son of man.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 14
And he said unto his disciples: Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, and believe in me. In my fathers house are many mansions. If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you even unto myself that where I am, there may ye be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
Thomas said unto him: Lord we know not whither thou goest. Also how is it possible for us to know the way? Jesus said unto him: I am the way, the truth and the life. And no man cometh unto the father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye had known my father also. And now ye know him, and have seen him.
Philip said unto him: Lord show us the father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus said unto him, have I been so long time with you: and yet hast thou not known me? Philip, he that hath seen me, hath seen the father. And how sayest thou then: show us the father? Believest thou not that *I am in the father, and the father in me? The words that I speak unto you, I speak not of myself: but the father that dwelleth in me, is he that doeth the works. Believe me, **that I am in the father and the father in me. At the least believe me for the very works sake.
Verily, verily I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do, the same shall he do, and greater works then these shall he do, because I go unto my father. And whatsoever ye ask in my name, that will I do, that the father might be glorified by the son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
If ye love me keep my commandments, and I will pray the father, and he shall give you another comforter, that he may bide with you ever: which is the spirit of truth whom the world cannot receive, because the world seeth him not, neither knoweth him. But ye know him. For he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: but will come to you.
Yet a little while and the world seeth me no more: but ye shall see me. For I live and ye shall live. that day shall ye know that I am in my father, and you in me, and I in you.
He that hath my commandments and keepeth them, the same is he that loveth me. And he that loveth me shall be loved of my father: and I will love him, and will show mine own self unto him. Judas said unto him (not Judas Iscarioth) Lord what is the cause that thou wilt show thyself unto us, and not unto the world? Jesus answered and said unto him: if a man love me and will keep my sayings, my father also will love him, and we will come unto him, and will dwell with him. He that loveth me not, keepeth not my sayings. And the words which ye hear, are not mine, but the fathers which sent me.
This have I spoken unto you being yet present with you. But that comforter which is the holy ghost (whom my father will send in my name) he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance whatsoever I have told you.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you. Not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your hearts be grieved, neither fear ye. Ye have heard how I said unto you: I go and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would verily rejoice, because I said, I go unto the father. For the father is greater then I. And now have I showed you, before it come, that when it is come to pass, ye might believe. Here after will I not talk many words unto you. For the ruler of this world cometh, and hath nought in me. But that the world may know that I love the father: therefore as the father gave me commandment, even so do I.
Rise let us go hence

THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 16
I have yet many things to say unto you: but ye cannot bear them away now. How be it when he is come (I mean the spirit of truth) he will lead you into all truth. He shall not speak of himself: but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak, and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me, for he shall receive of mine and shall show unto you. All things that the father hath are mine. Therefore said I unto you, that he shall take of mine and show unto you.
After a while ye shall not see me, and again after a while ye shall see me: For I go to the father. Then said some of his disciples between themselves: what is this that he saith unto us, after a while ye shall not see me, and again after a while ye shall see me: and that I go to the father. They said therefore: what is this that he saith after a while? we cannot tell what he saith. Jesus perceived that they would ask him, and said unto them: This is it that ye enquire of between yourselves, that I said after a while ye shall not see me, and again after a while ye shall see me. Verily, verily I say unto you: ye shall weep and lament and the world shall rejoice. Ye shall sorrow: but your sorrow shall be turned to joy.
A woman when she travaileth hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembreth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. And ye now are in sorrow: but I will see you again, and your hearts shall rejoice, and your joy shall no man take from you. And in that day shall ye ask me no question. Verily, verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall ask the father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name. Ask and ye shall receive it: that your joy may be full.
These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs. The time will come when I shall no more speak to you in proverbs: but I shall show you plainly from my father. At that day shall ye ask in mine name. And I say not unto you that I will speak unto my father for you. For the father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. I went out from the father, and came into the world: and I leave the world again, and go to the father.
His disciples said unto him: lo now speakest thou plainly, and thou usest no proverb. Now know we that thou understandest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee any question. Therefore believe we that thou camest from God. Jesus answered them: Now ye do believe. Behold the hour draweth nigh, and is already come that ye shall be scattered every man his ways, and shall leave me alone. And yet am I not alone. For the father is with me.
These words have I spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. For in the world shall ye have tribulation: but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world
THE FIRST TO THE THESSALONIANS Chpt 5
Of the times and seasons brethren ye have no need that I write unto you: for ye yourselves know perfectly, that the day of the Lord shall come even as a thief in the night. When they shall say peace and no danger then cometh on them sudden destruction, as the travailing of a woman with child, and they shall not escape. But ye brethren are not in darkness, that, that day should come on you as it were a thief.
Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day. We are not of the night neither of darkness.
Therefore let us not sleep as do other: but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep, sleep in the night: and they that be drunken, are drunken in the night. But let us which are of the day, be sober, armed with the breast plate of faith and love, and with hope of salvation as an helmet. For God hath not appointed us unto wrath: but to obtain salvation by the means of our Lord *Jesu Christ which died for us: that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as ye do.
We beseech you brethren, that ye know them which labour among you and have the oversight of you in the Lord and give you exhortation, that ye have them the more in love, for their works sake, and be at peace with them.
We desire you brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feeble minded, forbear the weak, have continual patience toward all men. See that none recompense evil for evil unto any man: but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Rejoice ever. Pray continually. In all things give thanks. For this is the will of God in Christ Jesu toward you.
Quench not the spirit. Despise not prophesying. Examine all things, and keep that which is good. Abstain from all suspicious things. The very God of peace sanctify you through out. And I pray God that your whole spirit, soul and body, be kept faultless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he which called you: which will also do it. Brethren, pray for us. Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss. I charge you in the Lord, that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen
THE SECOND TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 1
Wherefore I warn thee that thou stir up the gift of God which is in thee, by the putting on of my hands. For God hath not given to us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of soberness of mind. Be not ashamed to testify our Lord, neither be ashamed of me, which am bound for his sake: but suffer thou adversity also with the Gospell, through the power of God, which saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our deeds, but according to his own purpose and grace, which grace was given us through Christ Jesu before the world was, but is now declared openly by the appearing of our saviour Jesu Christ which hath put away death, and hath brought life and immortality unto light through the Gospell, whereunto I am appointed, a preacher, and an Apostle, and a teacher of the gentiles: for the which cause I also suffer these things. Nevertheless I am not ashamed. For I know whom I have believed, and am sure that he is able to keep that which I have committed to his keeping, against that day.
See thou have the example of the wholesome words which thou heardest of me, in faith and love which is in Jesu Christ. That, that good thing, which was committed to thy keeping, keep in the holy ghost which dwelleth in us. This thou knowest how that all they which are in Asia, be turned from me. Of which sort are Phigelos and Hermogenes. The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain: but when he was at Rome, besought me out very diligently, and found me. The Lord grant unto him that he may find mercy with the Lord at that day. And in how many things he ministered unto me at Ephesus thou knowest very well
THE SECOND TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 4
I testify therefore before God, and before the Lord Jesu Christ, which shall judge quick and dead at his appearing in his kingdom, preach the word, be fervent, be it in season or out of season. Improve, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come, when they will not suffer wholesome doctrine: but after their own lusts shall they (whose ears itch) get them an heap of teachers, and shall turn their ears from the truth, and shall be given unto fables. But watch thou in all things, and suffer adversity, and do the work of an Evangelist, fulfil thine office unto the utmost.
For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departing is at hand. I have fought a good fight, and have fulfilled my course, and have kept the faith. From henceforth is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord that is a righteous judge shall give me at that day: not to me only but unto all them that love his coming. Make speed to come unto me at once.
