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 dream during the nightmare of the dark season ...of the times and time ..of the season of man ...see son of man ...
and i was taken and shown ...
even just before ...as i was awakened ...i woke up ...
and there was a soul in the midst of all the measures of matters of the world ...
even in the darkness and fog of all wicked rule and oppression and guile ...
and the streets were strewn with the waste of wantonness covetousness and greed ....
even with all the waste of any lives and living and tears ...
even as the soul was compassed all round about with the raging wretchedness...
and the mind of the flesh was filled with its own thinking and devising ...
and figuring out ways to escape...in and out of troubles ...
and the thoughts of the heart of flesh raged ...thinking to do what "felt" right ...
even what seemed right ...
nevertheless like a bold voice without words ...spoken ...came ..."TRUST" ...
and it was of course ...course of life and living ...to TRUST in GOD our father ...
and in JESUS to help us ...to keep us ...safe and saved ...
and that we hear his voice more perfectly ...
and to be moved only in spirit and truth ...
and that ...that whethersoever we are in the body ...or not ...

FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 28
If thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day. The Lord will set thee on high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come on thee and over take thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the town and blessed in the fields, blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, the fruit of thy ground and the fruit of thy cattle, the fruit of thine oxen, and thy flocks of sheep, blessed shall thine *aulmery be and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be, both when thou goest out, and blessed when thou comest in. The Lord shall smite thine enemies that rise against thee before thy face. They shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. The Lord shall command the blessing to be with thee in thy store houses and in all that thou settest thine hand to, and will bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
The Lord shall make thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee: if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God and walk in his ways.
And all nations of the earth shall see that thou art called after the name of the Lord, and they shall be afeared of thee. And the Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, in the fruit of thy cattle and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, even the heaven, to give rain unto thy land in due season and to bless all the labors of thine hand. And thou shalt lend unto many nations, but shalt not need to borrow thyself. And the Lord shall set thee before and not behind, and thou shalt be above only and not beneath: if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God which I command thee this day to keep and to do them. And see that thou bow not from any of these words which I command thee this day either to the right hand or to the left, that thou wouldest go after strange gods to serve them.
But and if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God to keep and to do all his commandments and ordinances which I command thee this day: then all these curses shall come upon thee and overtake thee:
Cursed shalt thou be in the town, and cursed in the field, cursed shall thine almery be and thy store.
Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body and the fruit of thy land be and the fruit of thine oxen and the flocks of thy sheep.
And cursed shalt thou be when thou goest in, and when thou goest out.
And the Lord shall send upon thee cursing, going to nought and complaining in all that thou settest thine hand to, whatsoever thou doest: until thou be destroyed and brought to nought quickly, because of the wickedness of thine inventions in that thou hast forsaken the Lord.
And the Lord shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from the land whither thou goest to enjoy it.
And the Lord shall smite thee with swelling, with fevers, heat, burning, weathering, with smiting and blasting.
And they shall follow thee, until thou perish.
And the heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee iron. And the Lord shall turn the rain of the land unto powder and dust: even from heaven they shall come down upon thee, until thou be brought to nought. And the Lord shall plague thee before thine enemies: Thou shalt come out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them, and shalt be scattered among all the kingdoms of the earth. And thy carcass shall be meat unto all manner fowls of the air and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall *fray them away.
And the Lord will smite thee with the botches of Egypt and the *emerods, scale and manginess, that thou shalt not be healed thereof. And the Lord shall smite thee with madness, blindness and dazing of heart. And thou shalt grope at noonday as the blind gropeth in darkness, and shalt not come to the right way. And thou shalt suffer wrong only and be *polled evermore, and no man shall *succour thee: thou shalt be betrothed unto a wife, and another shall lie with her. Thou shalt build an house and another shall dwell therein. Thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not make it common. Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof. Thine ass shall be violently taken away even before thy face, and shall not be restored thee again. Thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and no man shall help thee. Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another nation, and thine eyes shall see and daze upon them all day long, but shalt have no might in thine hand. The fruit of thy land and all thy labors shall a nation which thou knowest not, eat, and thou shalt but suffer violence only and be oppressed always: that thou shalt be clean beside thyself for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
The Lord shall smite thee with a mischievous botch in the knees and legs, so that thou canst not be healed: even from the sole of the foot unto the top of the head.
The Lord shall bring both thee and thy king which thou hast set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, and there thou shalt serve strange Gods: even wood and stone.
And thou shalt go to waste and be made an example and a jesting stock unto all nations whither the Lord shall carry thee.
Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in: for the grasshoppers shall destroy it. Thou shalt plant a vineyard and dress it, but shalt neither drink of the wine neither gather of the grapes, for the worms shall eat it. Thou shalt have olive trees in all thy coasts, but shalt not be anointed with the oil, for thine olive trees shall be rooted out. Thou shalt get sons and daughters, but shalt not have them: for they shall be carried away captive. All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall be marred with blasting.And the Lord shall bring a nation upon thee from afar, even from the end of the world, as swift as an eagle flieth: a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand: a hard favored nation which shall not regard the person of the old nor have compassion on the young. And he shall eat the fruit of thy land and the fruit of thy cattle until he have destroyed thee: so that he shall leave thee neither corn, wine, nor oil, neither the increase of thine oxen nor the flocks of thy sheep: until he have brought thee to nought. And he shall keep thee in all thy cities, until thy high and strong walls be come down wherein thou trusted, through all thy land. And he shall besiege thee in all thy cities throughout all thy land which the Lord thy God hath given thee.
The strangers that are among you shall climb above thee up on high, and thou shalt come down beneath alow. He shall lend thee and thou shalt not lend him, he shall be before and thou behind.
Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee and shall follow thee and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed: because thou hearkened not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and ordinances which he commanded thee, and they shall be upon thee as miracles and wonders and upon thy seed for ever. And because thou served not the Lord thy God with joyfulness and with a good heart for the abundance of all things, therefore thou shalt serve thine enemy which the Lord shall send upon thee: in hunger and thirst, in nakedness and in need of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thine neck, until he have brought thee to nought.
And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body: the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters which the Lord thy God hath given thee, in that straightness and siege wherewith thine enemy shall besiege thee: so that it shall grieve the man that is tender and exceeding delicate among you, to look on his brother and upon his wife that lieth in his bosom and on the remnant of his children, which he hath yet left, for fear of giving unto any of them of the flesh of his children, which he eateth, because he hath nought left him in that straightness and siege wherewith thine enemy shall besiege thee in all thy cities.
Yea and the woman that is so tender and delicate among you that she dare not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for softness and tenderness, shall be grieved to look on the husband that lieth in her bosom and on her son and on her daughter: even because of the afterbirth, that is come out from between her legs, and because of her children which she hath borne, because she would eat them for need of all things secretly, in the straightness and siege wherewith thine enemy shall besiege thee in thy cities.
If thou wilt not be diligent to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, for to fear this glorious and fearful name of the Lord thy God: the Lord will smite both thee and thy seed with wonderful plagues and with great plagues and of long continuance, and with evil sicknesses and of long durance. Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt which thou wast afraid of, and they shall cleave unto thee. Thereto all manner sicknesses and all manner plagues which are not written in the book of this law, will the Lord bring upon thee until thou be come to nought. And ye shall be left few in number, wheretofore ye were as the stars of heaven in multitude: because thou wouldest not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.
And as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good and to multiply you: even so he will rejoice over you, to destroy you and to bring you to nought. And ye shall be wasted from off the land whither thou goest to enjoy it. And the Lord shall scatter thee among all nations from the one end of the world unto the other, and there thou shalt serve strange gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known: even wood and stone.
And among these nations thou shalt be no small season, and yet shalt have no rest for the sole of thy foot. For the Lord shall give thee there a trembling heart and dazing eyes and sorrow of mind. And thy life shall hang before thee, and thou shalt fear both day and night and shalt have no trust in thy life. In the morning thou shalt say, would God it were night. And at night thou shalt say, would God it were morning. For fear of thine heart which thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way which I bade thee that thou shouldst see it no more. And there ye shall be sold unto your enemies, for bondmen and bondwomen: and yet no man shall buy you
*aulmery: from the root word aul comes awl, a tool used in leather work, aulmery may mean tool house.*polled: from the old tradition: the horns are removed meaning to: lose strength or of a modern definition: questioned continually. *fray (scare) *emerods (boils)
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 12
Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him. When Jesus knew that, he departed thence, and much people followed him, and he healed them all, and charged them that they should not make him known: to fulfil that which was spoken by Esai the Prophet, which sayeth. Behold my child, whom I have chosen, my beloved, in whom my soul delighteth. I will put my spirit on him, and he shall show judgement to the gentiles. He shall not strive, he shall not cry, neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets, a bruised reed shall he not break, and flax that beginneth to burn, he shall not quench, till he send forth judgement unto victory, and in his name shall the gentiles trust.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 27
When they had crucified him, they parted his garments, and did cast lots: to fulfil that was spoken by the Prophet: They divided my garments among them: and upon my vesture did cast lots. And they sat and watched him there and they set up over his head the cause of his death written: This is Jesus the king of the Jews. And there were two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
They that passed by, reviled him wagging their heads and saying: Thou that destroyest the temple of God and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the son of God, come down from the cross. Likewise also the high priests mocking him with the Scribes and elders said: He saved other, him self he cannot save. If he be the king of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. He trusted in God, let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the son of God. That same also the thieves which were crucified with him, cast in his teeth.
From the sixth hour was there darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying: Eli, Eli, lama asbathani. That is to say, my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said: This man calleth for *Helias. And straight way one of them ran and took a sponge and filled it full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. Other said, let be: let us see whether *Helias will come and deliver him. Jesus cried again with a loud voice and yielded up the ghost.
*plaited: braided. *gall: bitter, poison from the Hebrew. *Helias (Elias).
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 10
And Jesus looked round about, and said unto his disciples: what an hard thing is it for them that have riches, to enter into the kingdom of God. And his disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answered again and said unto them: children, how hard is it for them, that trust in riches, to enter into the kingdom of God? It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of an needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. And they were astonished out of measure, saying between themselves: who then can be saved? Jesus looked upon them, and said: with men it is unpossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 11
When a strong man armed watcheth his house: that he possesseth is in peace. But when a stronger than he cometh upon him and overcometh him: he taketh from him his harness wherein he trusted and divideth his goods. He that is not with me, is against me. And he that gathereth not with me, scattereth.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 18
And the Lord said hear what the unrighteous Judge saith. And shall not God avenge his elect, which cry day and night unto him, yee though he defer them? I tell you he will avenge them and that quickly. Nevertheless, when the son of man cometh, suppose you, that he shall find faith on the earth.
And he put forth this similitude, unto certain which trusted in them selves that they were perfect, and despised other. Two men went up into the temple to pray: the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharise stood and prayed thus with him self. God I thank thee that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, *advoutrers, or as this publican. I fast twice in the week. I give tithe of all that I possess. And the publican stood afar off, and would not lift up his eyes to heaven, but smote his breast saying: God be mercyfull to me a sinner. I tell you this man departed home to his house justified more than the other. For every man that exalteth himself, shall be brought low: An he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted
*advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God, being devoted to something or some one else. see James 2 for adultery.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 23
And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate. And they began to accuse him saying: We have found this fellow perverting the people, and forbidding to pay tribute to Cesar: saying, that he is Christ a king. And Pilate opposed him saying: art thou the king of the Jews? He answered him and said: thou sayest it. Then said Pilate to the high Priests, and to the people: I find no fault in this man. And they were the more fierce saying. He moveth the people, teaching throughout Jewry, and began at Galile, even to this place.
When Pilate heard mention of Galile he asked whether the man were of Galilee. And as soon as he knew that he was of Herodes jurisdiction he sent him to Herode, which was also at Jerusalem in those days. And when Herode saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad. For he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him, and trusted to have seen some miracle done by him. Then questioned he with him of many things. But he answered him not one word. The high Priests and Scribes, stood forth and accused him straitly. And Herod with his men of war, despised him, and mocked him, and arrayed him in white, and sent him again to Pilate. And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together. For before they were at variance.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 24
And they said unto him: of Jesus of Nazareth which was a Prophet, mighty in deed and word before God, and all the people. And how the high Priests, and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death: and have crucified him. But we trusted that it should have been he that should have delivered Israel. And as touching all these things today is even the third day, that they were done.
Ye, and certain women also of our company made us astonied, which came early unto the sepulchre, and found not his body: and came saying, that they had seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. And certain of them which were with us, went their way to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
And he said unto them: O' fools and slow of heart to believe all that the Prophets have spoken. Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And he began at Moses, and at all the Prophets, and interpreted unto them in all scriptures which were written of him. And they drew nigh unto the town which they went to. And he made as though he would have gone further. But they constrained him saying, abide with us, for it draweth towards night, and the day is far passed. And he went in, to tarry with them.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 5
Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I receive not the record of man. Nevertheless, these things I say, that ye might be safe. He was a burning, and a shining light, and ye would for a season have rejoiced in his light. But I have greater witness than the witness of John. For the works which the father hath given me to finish: the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the father sent me. And the father himself which hath sent me, beareth witness of me. Ye have not heard his voice at any time, nor ye have seen his shape: thereto his words have ye not abiding in you. For whom he hath sent: him ye believe not.
Search the scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And yet will ye not come to me, that ye might have life. I receive not praise of men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. I am come in my fathers name, and ye receive me not. If another shall come in his own name, him will ye receive. How can ye believe which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh of God only?
Do not think that I will accuse you to my father. There is one that accuseth you: even Moses in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But seeing ye believe not his writing: how shall ye believe my words?
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 7
These are the words that God spake unto Jeremie: Stand under the gates of the Lords house, and cry out these words there, with a loud voice, and say: Hear the word of the Lord all ye of Judah, that go in this door, to honor the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel. Amend your ways and your counsels, and I will let you dwell in this place. trust not in the false lying words, saying: here is the temple of the Lord, here is the temple of the Lord, here is the temple of the Lord.
For if ye amend your ways and your counsels, if ye will judge right between a man and his neighbor: If ye will not oppress the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow: if ye will not shed innocent blood in this place: if ye will not cleave to strange gods to your own destruction: then will I let you dwell in this place, yee in the land that I gave afore time unto your fathers forever. But take heed, yee trust in counsels, that beguile you and do you no good. For when ye have stolen, murdered, committed *advoutry, and *penury: When ye have offered unto Baal, following strange and unknown gods: Then come ye, and stand before me in this house, which hath my name given unto it, and say: Tush, we are absolved quiet, through we have done all these abominations.
What? Think you this house that beareth my name, is a den of thieves? And these things are not done privately, but before mine eyes, sayeth the Lord. Go to my place in *Siloh, where unto I gave my name afore time, and look well what I did to the same place for the wickedness of my people of Israel. And now, though ye have done all these deeds ( sayeth the Lord ) and I myself rose up ever by times to warn you and to commune with you, yet would ye not hear me: I called, ye would not answer. And therefore even as I have done to Siloh, so will I do to this house, that my name is given unto ( and that ye put your trust in ) ye unto the place that I have given to you and your fathers. And I shall thrust you out of my sight, as I have cast out all your brethren the whole seed of Ephraim.
Therefore thou shalt not pray for this people, thou shalt neither give thanks, nor bid prayer for them : thou shalt make no intercession to me for them for in no wise will I hear thee. Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Juda, and without Jerusalem? The children gather sticks, the fathers kindle fire, the mothers knead the dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven.
They pour out drink offerings unto strange gods, to provoke me to wrath: How be it they hurt not me ( saith the Lord ) but rather confound, and shame themselves.
And therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold, my wrath and my indignation shall be poured out upon this place, upon men and cattle upon the trees in the field and upon and all the fruit of the land, and it shall burn so, that no man may quench it.
Thus saith the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel: Yee heap up your burnt offerings with your sacrifices, and eat flesh. But when I brought your fathers out of Egypt, I spake no word unto them of burntofferings and sacrifices: but this I commanded them, saying: hearken and obey my voice, and I shall be your God, and ye shall be my people: so that ye walk in all the ways, which I have commanded you, that ye may prosper.
But they were not obedient, they inclined not their ears there unto, but went after their own imaginations and after the motions of their own wicked heart, and so turned themselves away, and converted not unto me. And this have they done, from the time that your fathers came out of Egypt, unto this day.
Nevertheless, I sent unto them my servants all the prophets: I rose up early and sent them word, yet would they not hearken, ner offer me their ears, but were obstinate and worse than their fathers. And thou shalt now speak all these words unto them, but they shall not hear thee: thou shalt cry upon them, but they shall not answer thee. Therefore shalt thou say unto them: this is the people, that neither heareth the voice of the Lord their God, nor receiveth his correction. Faithfulness and truth is clean rooted out of their mouth.
Wherefor cut off thine hair, and cast it away, take up a complaint in the whole land for the Lord shall cast away, and scatter the people, that he is displeased withal. For the children of Judah have done evil in my sight, saith the Lord. They have set up their abominations, in the house that hath my name, and have defiled it. They have also builded an altar at Topheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hennom: that they might burn their sons and their daughters, which I never commanded them, neither came it ever to my thought. And therefore behold, the days shall come ( saith the Lord ) that it shall no more be called Topheth, or the valley of the children of Hennom, but the valley of the slain, for in Topheth, they shall be buried, because they shall else have no room. Yee the dead bodies of this people shall be eaten up of the fowls of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, and no man shall fraie (scare) them away. And as for the voice of mirth and gladness of the cities of Judah, and Jerusalem the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride: I will make them cease, for the land shall be desolate
*penury (to cause poverty)
*advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God, caused others to be devoted to something other than the living God. see James 2 for adultery.
*Shiloh = "place of rest"
