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 dread 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 the recorded Word of God and Jesus.
even as given and shown in spirit and truth.
and the recorded Word was printed ...published ...
and sent out.
Yet it was dropped in a desolate desert ...of sand.
and a landscape ...land scape of nothing living ...
even as far as the eye could see ...
even to the barren high and mighty barren lifeless mountains all round about the dry desert of nothingness.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
Jesus said: I am come unto judgement into this world: that they which see not, might see, and they which see, might be made blind.
FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 29
These are the words of the appointment which the Lord commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the appointment which he made with them in Horeb. And Moses called unto all Israel and said unto them: Ye have seen all that the Lord did before your eyes in the land of Egypt, unto Pharao and unto all his servants, and unto all his land, and the great temptations which thine eyes have seen and those great miracles and wonders: And yet the Lord hath not given you an heart to perceive, nor eyes to see, nor ears to hear unto this day.
And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: and your clothes are not waxed old upon you, nor are thy shoes waxed old upon thy feet. Ye have eaten no bread nor drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know, how that he is the Lord your God.
HOSEA or OSEAS Chpt 2
As for the bow, sword and battle, I will destroy such out of the land, and will make them to sleep safely. Thus I will marry thee unto mine own self forevermore: yee even to myself will I marry thee, in righteousness, in equity, in lovingkindness, and mercy. In faith also will I marry thee unto myself, and thou shalt know the Lord. At the same time will I show myself friendly and gracious unto the heavens, sayeth the Lord: and the heavens shall help the earth, and the earth shall help the corn, wine, and the oil, and they shall help Iesrael. I will sow them upon the earth, for a seed to mine own self, and will have mercy upon her, that was without mercy. And to them which were not my people, I will say: Thou art my people. And he shall say: thou art my God.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 3
Every man can *eschue a person moved to anger, for what he doth wisely? Even so shall the Lord of Hosts take away from Jerusalem and from Juda, all possessions and power, all meat and drink, the captain and the soldier, the judge and the prophet, the wise and the aged man, the worshipful of fifty year old, and the honorable: the Senators, and the men of understanding: the masters of crafts and orators. And I shall give you children to be your princes,( sayeth the Lord ) and babes shall have the rule of you. One shall ever be doing violence and wrong to another. The boy will presume against the elder, and the vile person against the honorable. Ye when one shall take a friend of his own kindred by the bosom, and say: Thou hast clothing, thou shalt be our head, for thou mayest keep us from this fall and peril.
Then shall he swear and say: I can not help you. Moreover, there is neither meat nor clothing in my house, make me no ruler of the people. For Jerusalem and Juda must decay, because both their words and counsel are against the Lord, they provoke the presence of his Majesty unto anger. The changing of their countenance betrayeth them, yee they declare their own sins themselves, as the Sodomites, and hide them not. Woe be unto their souls, for they shall be heavily rewarded. Then shall they say: O happy are the godly, for they may enjoy the fruits of their studies. But woe be unto the ungodly and unrighteous for they shall be rewarded after their works. O my people, *ribaudes oppress thee, and women have rule of thee. O my people, thy leaders deceive thee, and tread out the way of thy footsteps. The Lord is here to commune of the matter, and standeth to give judgement with the people. The Lord shall come forth to reason with the Senators and princes of his people, and shall say thus unto them: It is ye that have burnt up my vineyard, the robbery of the poor is in your house. Wherefore do ye oppress my people, and marred the faces of the innocents? thus shall the Lord God of Hosts revile them.
Moreover thus sayeth the Lord: Seeing the daughters of Sion are become so proud, and come in with stretched out necks, and with vain wanton eyes: seeing they come in tripping so nicely with their feet: Therefore shall the Lord shave the heads of the daughters of Sion, and make their beauty bare in the day. In that day shall the Lord take away the gorgeousness of their apparel, and spangles, chains, *partlets, and collars, bracelets and hooves, that goodly flowered wide and boarded raiment, brushes and head bands, rings and garlands, holy day clothes and veils, kerchiefs and pins, glasses and smocks, bonnets and *taches
And instead of good smell there shall be stink among them. And for their girdles there shall be loose bands. And for well set hair there shall be baldness. Instead of a stomacher, a sackcloth, and for their beauty witherdness and *son burning. Their husbands and their mighty men shall perish with the sword in battle.
*eschue (avoid, escape) *ribaudes ( extortioners :MN). *partlets = ruffled covering for the neck. *taches = buckles, clasps, fasteners. *son burning exactly as recorded
even as it is written ...THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 11
And the fourth came, and *overwane, subdue all the beasts that were past, and had power over the world with great fearfulness, and over the whole compass of the earth with the most wicked labor, and so long time dwelt he upon the earth with deceit, and the earth thou hast not judged the truth. For thou hast troubled the meek, thou hast hurt the peaceable and quiet, thou hast loved lies, and destroyed the dwellings of them that brought forth fruit, and hast cast down the walls of such as did thee no harm. Therefore is thy wrongeous dealing and blasphemy come up unto the Highest, and thy pride unto the Mighty. The Highest also hath looked upon the proud times, and behold, they are ended, and their abominations are fulfilled
THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 12
The Lion whom thou sawest rising up out of the wood, and roaring, and speaking unto the Eagle, and rebuking him for his unrighteousness, is the wind, which the Highest hath kept for them and for their wickedness unto the end: he shall reprove them, and rent them asunder before them. For he shall set them living before the judgement, and shall rebuke them: for the residue of my people shall he deliver with trouble, those that be preserved over mine ends: and he shall make them joyful until the coming day of Judgement, where of I have spoken unto thee from the beginning. This is the dream that thou sawest, and this is the interpretation. Thou only hast been meat to know the secret of the Highest.
and i remembered the fourth beast and the great eagle of the final prophesy ...
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN THE DIVINE Chpt 4
After this I looked, and behold a door was open in heaven, and the first voice which I heard, was as it were of a trumpet talking with me which said: come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be fulfilled here after. And immediately I was in the spirit: And behold a seat was put in heaven, and one sat on the seat. And he that sat, was to look upon, like unto a jasper stone and a sardine stone: And there was a rainbow about the seat, in sight like to an emerald. And about the seat were twenty four seats. And upon the seats twenty four elders sitting, clothed in white raiment, and had on their heads crowns of gold.
And out of the seat proceeded lightnings, and thunderings, and voices, and there were seven lamps of fire, burning before the seat, which are the seven spirits of God. And before the seat there was a sea of glass like unto crystal, and in the midst of the seat, and round about the seat were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each one of them six wings about him, and they were full of eyes with in. And they had no rest day neither night saying: Holy, holy, holy, Lord God almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
And when those beasts gave glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the seat, which liveth for ever and ever: the twenty four elders fell down before him that sat on the throne, and worshipped him that liveth for ever, and cast their crowns before the throne saying: thou art worthy Lord to receive glory and honour, and power, for thou hast created all things, and for thy wills sake they are, and were created
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN THE DIVINE Chpt 12
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. And she was with child and cried travailing in birth, and pained ready to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven, for behold a great red dragon having seven heads, and ten horns and crowns upon his heads: and his tail drew the third part of the stars, and cast them to the earth.
And the dragon stood before the woman, which was ready to be delivered: for to devour her child as soon as it were born. And she brought forth a man child, which should rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her son was taken up unto God, and to his seat. And the woman fled into wilderness, where she had a place, prepared of God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
And there was a great battle in heaven, Michael and his Angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his Angels, and prevailed not: neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon, that old serpent called the devil and Satan was cast out. Which deceiveth all the world. And he was cast into the earth, and his angels were cast out also.
And I heard a loud voice saying: in heaven is now made salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ. For he is cast down which accused them before God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth, and of the sea: for the devil is come down unto you which hath great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
And when the dragon saw, that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, times, and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And the dragon cast out of his mouth water after the woman as it had been a river, because she should have been caught of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed, up the river, which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman: and went and made war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. And I stood on the sea *stonde
*stonde: two possible words come from the Middle English: stound: meaning "a short time" and stonen: meaning "stunned". stunned because of the vision.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 8
And it fortuned after that, that he himself went throughout cities and towns, preaching, and showing the kingdom of God, and the twelve with him. And also certain women, which were healed of evil spirits, and infirmities: Mary called Magdalen, out of whom went seven devils, and Joanna the wife of Chuza Herods steward, and Susanna and many other: which ministered unto them of their substance. When much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of all cities, he spake by a similitude. A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and it was trodden under feet, and the fowls of the air devoured it up. And some fell on stone, and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moistness. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. And some fell on good ground and sprang up, and bare fruit, an hundred fold. And as he said these things, he cried: He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
And his disciples asked him saying: what manner similitude is this? And he said: unto you is it given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God: but to other in similitudes, that when they see, they should not see, and when they hear they should not understand.
The similitude is this. The seed is the word of God. Those that are beside the way, are they that hear, and afterward cometh the devil and taketh away the word out of their hearts lest they should believe and be saved. They on the stones, are they which when they hear, receive the word with joy. But these have no roots, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation go away. And that which fell among thorns, are they which hear, and go forth, and are choked with cares and with riches, and voluptuous living, and bring forth no fruit. That in the good ground, are they which with a good and pure heart, hear the word and keep it and bring forth fruit with patience.
No man lighteth a candle, and covereth it under a vessel, neither putteth it under the table, but setteth it on a candlestick, that they that enter in, may see the light. Nothing is in secret that shall not come abroad: Neither any thing hid, that shall not be known, and come to light. Take heed therefore how ye hear. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given: And whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken, even that same which he supposeth that he hath.
Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for press. And they told him saying: Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, and would see thee. He answered and said unto them: my mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God and do it.
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 3
Who so despiseth wisdom and nurture, he is unhappy, and as for the hope of such, it is but vain, their labors unfruitful, and their works unprofitable. Their wives are *indiscreet, and their children most ungodly. Their creature is cursed. Blessed is rather, the barren and undefiled, which hath not known the sinful bed: she shall have fruit in the reward of the holy souls. And blessed is the gelded, which with his hands hath wrought no unrighteousness, nor imagined wicked things against God. For unto him shall be given the special gift of faith, and the most acceptable portion in the temple of God. For glorious is the fruit of good labor, and the root of wisdom shall never fade away. As for the children of *advouters, they shall come to an end, and the seed of an unrighteous bed shall be rooted out. And though they live long, yet shall they be nothing regarded, and their last age shall be without honor. If they die hastily, they have no hope, neither shall they be spoken to in the day of knowledge. For horrible is the death and end of the unrighteous
*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. JOHN Chpt 9
And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him saying. Master, who did sin: this man or his father and mother, that he was born blind? Jesus answered: Neither hath this man sinned, nor yet his father and mother: but that the works of God should be showed on him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day. The night cometh when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
As soon as he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground and made clay of the spittle, and rubbed the clay on the eyes of the blind, and said unto him: Go wash thee in the pool of Siloe, which by interpretation, signifieth sent. He went his way and washed, and came again seeing. The neighbours and they that had seen him before how that he was a beggar, said: is not this he that sat and begged? Some said: this is he. Other said: he is like him.
But he himself said: I am even he. They said unto him: How are thine eyes opened then? He answered and said. The man that is called Jesus, made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me. Go to the pool Siloe and wash. I went and washed and received my sight. They said unto him: where is he? He said: I cannot tell.
Then brought they to the Pharisees, him that a little before was blind: for it was the Saboth day when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes. Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them: He put clay upon mine eyes and I washed, and do see. Then said some of the Pharisees: this man is not of God, because he keepeth not the Saboth day. Other said: how can a man that is a sinner, do such miracles? And there was strife among them. Then spake they unto the blind again: What sayest thou of him, because he hath opened thine eyes? And he said: He is a Prophet.
But the Jewes did not believe of the fellow, how that he was blind and received his sight, until they had called the father and mother of him that had received his sight. And they asked them saying: Is this your son, whom ye say was born blind? How doth he now see then? His father and mother answered them and said, we *wot well that this is our son, and that he was born blind: but by what means he now seeth that can we not tell, or who hath opened his eyes, can we not tell. He is old enough, ask him, let him answer for himself. Such words spake his father and mother, because they feared the Jewes. For the Jewes had conspired already that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be excommunicate out of the synagogue. Therefore said his father and mother: he is old enough, ask him.
Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him: Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. He answered and said: Whether he be a sinner or no, I cannot tell: One thing I am sure of, that I was blind, and now I see. Then said they to him again. What did he to thee? How opened he thine eyes? He answered them, I told you *yer while, and ye did not hear. Wherefore would ye hear it again? Will ye also be his disciples? Then rated they him, and said: Thou art his disciple. We be Mosess disciples. We are sure that God spake with Moses. This fellow we know not from whence he is.
The man answered and said unto them: this is a marvelous thing that ye *wot not whence he is, seeing he hath opened mine eyes. For we be sure that God heareth not sinners. But if any man be a worshipper of God and do his will, him heareth he. Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. If this man were not of God, he could have done nothing. They answered and said unto him: thou art altogether born in sin, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
Jesus heard that they had excommunicated him: and as soon as he had found him, he said unto him: dost thou believe on the son of God? He answered and said: Who is it Lord, that I might believe on him? And Jesus said unto him: Thou hast seen him, and he it is that talketh with thee. And he said: Lord I believe: and worshipped him. Jesus said: I am come unto judgement into this world: that they which see not, might see, and they which see, might be made blind. And some of the Pharisees which were with him, heard these words and said unto him: are we then blind? Jesus said unto them: if ye were blind, ye should have no sin. But now ye say, we see, therefore your sin remaineth
*wot (know) *yer (before)
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 10
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. An hired servant, which is not the shepherd, neither the sheep are his own, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and flyeth, and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hired servant flyeth, because he is an hired servant, and careth not for the sheep. I am that good shepherd, and know mine, and am known of mine. As my father knoweth me: even so know I my father. And I give my life for the sheep: and other sheep I have, which are not of this fold. Them also must I bring, that they may hear my voice, and that there may be one flock and one shepherd.
Therefore doth my father love me, because I put my life from me, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me: but I put it away of myself. I have power to put it from me, and have power to take it again: This commandment have I received of my father. And there was a dissension again among the Jewes for these sayings, and many of them said. He hath the devil, and is mad: why hear ye him? Other said, these are not the words of him that hath the devil. Can the devil open the eyes of the blind?
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 11
A certain man was sick, named Lazarus of Bethania the town of Mary and her sister Martha. It was that Mary which anointed Jesus with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick, and his sisters sent unto him saying. Lord behold he whom thou lovest, is sick. When Jesus heard that, he said: this infirmity is not unto death, but for the laud of God, that the son of God might be praised by the reason of it. Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. After he heard that he was sick, then abode he two days still in the same place where he was.
Then after that, said he to his disciples: let us go into Jewry again. His disciples said unto him: Master, the Jewes lately sought means to stone thee, and wilt thou go thither again? Jesus answered, are there not twelve hours in the day? If a man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him. This said he, and after that, he said unto them: our friend Lazarus sleepeth, but I go to wake him out of sleep. Then said his disciples: Lord if he sleep, he shall do well enough. How be it Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of the natural sleep. Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead, and I am glad for your sakes, that I was not there, because ye may believe. Nevertheless let us go unto him. Then said Thomas which is called Didymus, unto the disciples: let us also go, that we may die with him. Then went Jesus, and found that he had lain in his grave four days already. Bethanie was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off, and many of the Jewes were come to Martha and Mary to comfort them over their brother. Martha as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.
Then said Martha unto Jesus: Lord if thou hadst been here, my brother had not been dead: but nevertheless, I know that whatsoever thou askest of God, God will give it thee. Jesus said unto her: Thy brother shall rise again. Martha said unto him: I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said unto her: I am the resurrection and the life: He that believeth on me, yea though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth on me, shall never die. Believest thou this? She said unto him: yes Lord, I believe that thou art Christ the son of God which should come into the world. And as soon as she had so said, she went her way and called Mary her sister secretly saying: The master is come and calleth for thee. And she as soon as she heard that, arose quickly, and came unto him. Jesus was not yet come into the town: but was in the place where Martha met him. The Jewes then which were with her in the house and comforted her, when they saw Mary that she rose up hastily, and went out, followed her, saying: She goeth unto the grave, to weep there.
Then when Mary was come where Jesus was and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him: Lord if thou hadst been here, my brother had not been dead. When Jesus saw her weep, and the Jewes also weep, which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled in himself and said: Where have ye laid him? They said unto him: Lord come and see. And Jesus wept. Then said the Jewes: Behold how he loved him. And some of them said: could not he which opened the eyes of the blind, have made also, that this man should not have died? Jesus again groaned in himself, and came to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone laid on it.
And Jesus said: take ye away the stone. Martha the sister of him that was dead, said unto him: Lord by this time he stinketh. For he hath been dead four days: Jesus said unto her: Said I not unto thee, that if thou didst believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God. Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lift up his eyes and said: Father I thank thee because that thou hast heard me. I *wot that thou hearest me always: but because of the people that stand by I said it that they may believe, that thou hast sent me.
And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus come forth. And he that was dead, came forth, bound hand and foot with grave bonds, and his face was bound with a napkin. Jesus said unto them: loose him, and let him go. Then many of the Jewes which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him. But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what Jesus had done.
Then gathered the high Priests and the Pharisees a council, and said: what do we? This man doeth many miracles. If we let him scape thus, all men will believe on him, and the Romans shall come and take away our country and the people. And one of them named Caiphas which was the high priest that same year, said unto them: Ye perceive nothing at all nor yet consider that it is expedient for us, that one man die for the people, and not that all the people perish. This spake he not of himself, but being high Priest that same year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for the people, and not for the people only, but that he should gather together in one the children of God which were scattered abroad. From that day forth they held a counsel together, for to put him to death.
Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jewes: but went his way thence unto a country nigh to a wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there haunted with his disciples. And the Jewes *ester was nigh at hand and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the *ester, to purify themselves. Then sought they for Jesus, and spake between themselves as they stood in the temple: What think ye, seeing he cometh not to the feast? The high Priests and Pharisees had given a commandment, that if any man knew where he were, he should show it, that they might take him
*wot (know) *ester: exact spelling, maybe the feast of sweet bread
