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 taken and shown a man ...
and the man was in a private place ...
and the man was standing on his lust of the flesh...
even as though to justify it ...of his own thinking ...
even of his own imaginations ...
Nevertheless the door ...of his private place ...his thinking ...his imaging was opened ...
and that by a woman ...whose face was caring ...to help him ...
evenso...and again ...the man tried to stand on ...to justify ...his lust of the flesh ...
Nevertheless he was not able to stand on his lust of the flesh ...
Yet i was not shown if he allowed the woman to help him ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. JOHN Chpt 2
Babes I write unto you how that your sins are forgiven you for his names sake. I write unto you fathers, how that ye have known him that was from the beginning. I write unto you young men, how that ye have overcome the wicked. I write unto you little children, how that ye have known the father. I write unto you fathers, how that ye have known him that was from the beginning. I write unto you young men, how that ye are strong: and the word of God abideth in you and ye have overcome that wicked.
See that ye love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in him. For all that is in the world (as the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of goods) is not of the father, but of the world. And the world vanisheth away and the lust there of: but he that fulfilleth the will of God, abideth ever.
Little children it is the last time, and as ye have heard how the Antichrist shall come even now are there many Antichrists come already. Whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us. For if they had been of us, they would no doubt, have continued with us. But that fortuned that it might appear, that they were not of us.
And ye have an ointment of the holy ghost, and ye know all things. I wrote not unto you, as though ye knew not the truth: but as though ye knew it, and know also that no lie cometh of truth. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is Christ? The same is the Antichrist that denieth the father and the son. Whosoever denieth the son, the same hath not the father. Let therefore abide in you that same which ye heard from the beginning. If that which ye heard from the beginning, shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the son, and in the father. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
This have I written unto you, concerning them that deceive you. And the anointing which ye have received of him, dwelleth in you. And ye need not that any man teach you: but as the annointing teacheth you all things, and is true, and is no lie, and as it taught you, even so bide therein. And now babes abide in him that when he shall appear, we may be bold and not be made ashamed of him at his coming. If ye know that he is righteous, know also that he which followeth righteousness, is born of him
ST. PAUL TO THE ROMANS Chpt 7
Remember ye not brethren (I speak to them that know the law) how that the law hath power over a man as long as it endureth? For the woman which is in subjection to a man, is bound by the law to the man, as long as he liveth. If the man be dead, she is loosed from the law of the man. So then if while the man liveth she couple herself with another man, she shall be counted a wedlock breaker. But if the man be dead, she is free from the law: so that she is no wedlock breaker, though she couple herself with another man.
Even so ye my brethren, are dead concerning the law by the body of Christ, that ye should be coupled to another (I mean to him that is risen again from death) that we should bring forth fruit unto God. For when we were in the flesh, the lusts of sin which were stirred up by the law reigned in our members, to bring forth fruit unto death. But now are we delivered from the law and dead from that whereunto we were in bondage that we should serve in a new conversation of the spirit, and not in the old conversation of the letter.
What shall we say then? is the law sin?. God forbid: but I knew not what sin meant but by the law. For I had not known what lust had meant, except the law had said, thou shalt not lust. But sin took an occasion by the means of the commandment and wrought in me all manner of *concupiscence. For verily without the law, sin was dead. I once lived without law. But when the commandment came, sin revived, and I was dead. And the very same commandment which was ordained unto life, was found to be unto me an occasion of death. For sin took occasion by the means of the commandment, and so deceived me, and by the self commandment slew me. Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, just and good.
Was that then which is good, made death unto me? God forbid. Nay sin was death unto me, that it might appear, how that sin by the means of that which is good, had wrought death in me: that sin which is under the commandment, might be out of measure sinful. For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin, because I *wot not what I do. For what I would, that do I not: but what I hate, that do I. If I do now that which I would not, I grant to the law that it is good. So then now, it is not I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is to say in my flesh) dwelleth no good thing. To will is present with me: but I find no means to perform that which is good. For I do not that good thing which I would but that evil do I, which I would not. Finally if I do that I would not, then is it not I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me, doeth it. I find then by the law that when I would do good, evil is present with me. I delight in the law of God, concerning the inner man. But I see another law in my members rebelling against the law of my mind, and subduing me unto the law of sin, which is in my members. O wretched man that I am: who shall deliver me from this body of death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then I myself in my mind serve the law of God, and in my flesh the law of sin
*concupiscence: strong desire; lust of the flesh, lust of the eye and/or pride of goods.
ST. PAUL TO THE ROMANS Chpt 8
For they that are carnal, are carnally minded. But they that are spiritual, are ghostly minded. To be carnally minded, is death. But to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Because that the fleshly mind is *emnity against God: for it is not obedient to the law of God, neither can be. So then they that are given to the flesh, cannot please God.
But ye are not given to the flesh, but to the spirit: if so be that the spirit of God dwell in you. If there be any man that hath not the spirit of Christ, the same is none of his. If Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin: but the spirit is life for righteousness sake. Wherefore if the spirit of him that raised up Jesus from death, dwell in you: even he that raised up Christ from death, shall quicken your mortal bodies, because that this spirit dwelleth in you.
Therefore brethren we are now debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye must die. But if ye mortify the deeds of the body, by the help of the spirit, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the spirit of God: they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage to fear any more, but ye have received the spirit of adoption whereby we cry Abba father. The same spirit certifieth our spirit that we are the sons of God. If we be sons, we are also heirs, the heirs I mean of God, and heirs annexed with Christ if so be that we suffer together, that we may be glorified together.
For I suppose that the afflictions of this life, are not worthy of the glory which shall be showed upon us. Also the fervent desire of the creatures abideth looking when the sons of God shall appear, because the creatures are subdued to vanity against their will: but for his will which subdueth them in hope. For the very creatures shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the sons of God. For we know that every creature groaneth with us also, and travaileth in pain even unto this time.
Not they only, but even we also which have the first fruits of the spirit, mourn in ourselves and wait for the (adoption) and look for the deliverance of our bodies. For we are saved by hope. But hope that is seen is no hope. For how can a man hope for that which he seeth? But and if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience abide for it.
Likewise the spirit also helpeth our infirmities. For we know not what to desire as we ought: but the spirit maketh intercession mightily for us with groanings which cannot be expressed with tongue. And he that searcheth the hearts, knoweth what is the meaning of the spirit: for he maketh intercession for the saints according to pleasure of God.
For we know that all things work for the best unto them that love God, which also are called of purpose. For those which he knew before, he also ordained before, that they should be like fashioned unto the shape of his son, that he might be the first begotten son among many brethren. Moreover which he appointed before them he also called. And which he called, them also be justified, which he justified, them he also glorified.
What shall we then say to these things? If God be on our side: who can be against us? which spared not his own son, but gave him for us all: how shall he not with him give us all things also? Who shall lay anything to the charge of Gods chosen? it is God that justifieth: who then shall condemn? it is Christ which is dead, yee rather which is risen again, which is also on the right hand of God, and maketh intercession for us.
Who shall separate us from the love of God? shall tribulation? or anguish? or persecution? other hunger? either nakedness? either peril? either sword? As it is written: For thy sake are we killed all day long, and are counted as sheep appointed to be slain. Nevertheless in all these things we overcome strongly through his help that loved us. Ye and I am sure that neither death, neither life, neither Angels, nor rule, neither power, neither things present, neither things to come, neither height, neither lowth, neither any other creature shall be able to depart us from the love of God, showed in Christ *Jesu our Lord
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 6
Wisdom is better then strength, and a man of understanding is more worth than one that is strong. Hear therefore ( O' ye Kings ) and understand: O' learn ye that be judges of the ends of the earth. Give ear, ye that rule the multitudes, and delight much people. For power is given you of the Lord, and the strength from the Highest: which shall try your works and search out your imaginations: How that ye being officers of his Kingdom, have not kept the law of righteousness, nor walked after his will. Horribly and that right soon shall he appear unto you: for an hard judgment shall they have that bear rule. Mercy is granted unto the simple, but they that be in authority shall be sore punished. For God which is Lord over all, shall except no mans person, neither shall he stand in awe of any mans greatness: for he hath made the small and great, and careth for all alike. But the mighty shall have the sorer punishment.
Unto you therefore ( O' Kings ) do I speak, that ye may learn wisdom and not go amiss: For they that keep righteousness shall be righteously judged: and they that are learned in righteous things, shall find to make answer. Wherefore set your lust upon my words, and love them, so shall ye come by nurture. Wisdom is a noble thing, and never fadeth away: yee she is easily seen of them that love her, and found of such as seek her. She preventeth them that desire her, that she may first show herself unto them. Whoso awaketh unto her by times, shall have no great travail, for he shall find her sitting ready at his doors. To think upon her, is perfect understanding: and whoso watcheth for her, shall be safe, and that soon. For she goeth about, seeking such as are *mete for her, showeth herself cheerfully unto them in their goings, and meeteth them with all diligence. For the unfeigned desire for reformation is her beginning: to care for nurture is love, and love is the keeping of her laws. Now the keeping of the laws is perfection and an uncorrupt life, an uncorrupt life maketh a man familiar with God. And so the desire of wisdom leadeth to the Kingdom everlasting. If your delight be then in royal seats and scepters ( O' ye kings of the people ) set your lust upon wisdom, that ye may reign for evermore. O' love the light of wisdom, all ye that be rulers of the people. As for wisdom what she is, and how she came up I will tell you, and will not hide the mysteries of God from you: but will seek her out from the beginning of the nativity, and bring the knowledge of her into light, and will not keep back the truth: Neither will I do with consuming envy, for such a man shall not be partaker of wisdom. But the multitude of the wise is the welfare of the world, and a wise king is the upholding of the people. O' receive nurture then through my words, and it shall do you good.
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 12
O' Lord, how gracious and sweet is thy spirit in all things? Therefore chasteneth thou them measurably that go wrong, and warnest them concerning the things wherein they offend: thou speakest unto them ( O' Lord ) and exhortest them to leave their wickedness, and to put their trust in thee. As for those old inhabitors of the holy land, thou mightest not away with them, for they committed abominable works against thee: as witchcrafts, sorcery and Idolatry: they slew their own children without mercy: they ate up mens bowels, and devoured the blood: yee because of such abominations, misbelieves and offerings, thou showest the fathers of the desolate souls by the hands of our fathers that the land which thou lovest above all other, might be a dwelling for the children of God.
Nevertheless thou sparedest them also ( as men ) and sendest the forerunners of thy host even hornets to destroy them out by little and little. Not that thou wast unable to subdue the ungodly unto righteousness in battle or with cruel beasts, or with one rough word to destroy them together: But thy mind was to drive them out by little and little giving them time and place to amend: knowing well, that it was an unrighteous nation and wicked of nature and that their thought might never be altered. For it was a cursed seed from the beginning, and feared no man: Yet hast thou pardoned their sins. For who will say unto thee: why hast thou done that? Or who will stand against thy judgement? Or who will come before thy face an avenger of unrighteous men? Or who will blame thee, if the people perish, whom thou hast made? For their is none other God but thou, that carest for all things: that thou mayest declare how that thy judgement is not unright. There dare neither king, ner tyrant in thy sight require accounts of them whom thou hast destroyed.
For so much then as thou art righteous thyself, thou orderest all things righteously and punishest even him that hath not deserved to be punished, and takest him for a stranger and an alien in the land of thy power. For thy power is the beginning of righteousness: and because thou art Lord of all things therefore art thou gracious unto all. When men think thee not to be of a full strength, thou declarest thy power: and boldly deliverest thou them over that know thee not. But thou Lord of power judgest quietly, and orderest us with great worship, for thou mayest do as thou wilt.
By such works now hast thou taught thy people, that a man should be just and loving: and hast made thy children to be of a good hope: for even when thou judgest, thou givest room to amend from sins. For in so much as thou hast punished, and with such diligence delivered the enemies of thy servants, which were worthy to die ( where though thou gavest them time and place of amendment that they might turn from their wickedness ) with how great diligence then punishest thou thine own children, unto whose fathers thou hast sworn and made covenants of good promises? So where as thou dost but chasten us, thou punishest our enemies diverse ways to the intent that when we punish we should remember thy goodness: and when we ourselves are punished, to put our trust in thy mercy.
Wherefore where as men have lived ignorantly and unrighteously thou hast punished them sore even through the same things that they worshiped. For they went astray very long in the way of error, held the beasts ( which even their enemies despised ) for gods living as children of no understanding. Therefore hast thou sent a scornful punishment among them, as among the children of ignorance. As for such as would not be reformed by those scorns and rebukes, they felt the worthy judgement of God. For the things that they suffered, they bare them unpatiently, being not content in them but unwilling. And when they perished by the same things that they took for gods, they knowledged then, that there is but one true God, whom afore they would not know: therefore came the end of their damnation upon them
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 7
I myself also am a mortal man, like as all other, and am come of the earthly generation of him that was first made, and in my mothers womb was I fashioned to be flesh: In the time of ten months was I brought together in blood through the seed of man, and the commodious appetite of sleep. When I was born, I received like air as other men, and fell upon the earth, ( which is my nature ) crying and weeping at first, as all other do. I was wrapped in swaddling clothes, and brought up with great cares. For there is no king that hath had any other beginning of birth. All men have one entrance unto life, and one going out in like manner.
Wherefore I desired, and understanding was given me: I called, and the spirit of wisdom came in to me. I set more by her then by kingdoms and royal seats, and counted riches nothing in comparison of her. As for precious stone I compared it not unto her: for all gold is but gravel unto her, and silver shall be counted but clay before her sight. I loved her above welfare and beauty, and purposed to take her for my light, for her shine can not be quenched. All good things come to me with her, and innumerable riches through her hands. And I was glad in them all, for this wisdom went before me, and I knew not that she was the mother of all good things. Now as I myself learned unfainedly, so do I make other men partakers of her, and hide her riches from no man: For she is an infinite treasure unto men, which who so use, become partakers of the love and friendship of God, and are accepted unto him for the gifts of wisdom.
God hath granted me to talk wisely, and convenient to handle the things that he hath graciously lent me. For it is he, that leadeth unto wisdom, and teacheth to use wisdom and right. In his hand are we and our words: yee all our wisdom, our understanding and knowledge of all our works. For he hath given me the true science of these things: so that I know how the world was made, and the powers of the elements: The beginning, ending and midst of the times: how the times alter, how one goeth after another, and how they are fulfilled: the course of the year: the ordinances of the stars: the natures and kinds of beasts: the furriousness of beasts: the power of the winds: the imaginations of men: the diversities of young plants: the virtues of roots, And all such things as are secret and not looked for, have I learned. For the workmaster of all things hath taught me wisdom. In her is the spirit of understanding, which is holy, manyfold, one only, subtle, courteous, discreet, quick, undefiled, plain, sweet, loving the thing that is good, sharp, which forbiddeth not to do well, gentile, kind, steadfast, sure, free having all virtues, circumspect in all things: receiving all spirits of understanding, being clear and sharp. For wisdom is nimbler then all nimble things: she goeth through and attaineth to all things, because of her cleanness. For she is the breath of the power of God, and a pure clean expressing of the clearness of Almighty God. Therefore can no undefiled thing come unto her: for she is the brightness of the everlasting light, the undefiled mirror of the majesty of God, and the image of his goodness. And for so much as she is one, she may do all things: and being steadfast herself she reneweth all, and among the people conveyeth she herself in to the holy souls. She maketh Gods friends and prophets: for God loveth no man, but him in whom wisdom dwelleth. For she is more beautiful then the Sun and giveth more light then the stars, and the day is not to be compared unto her: for upon the day cometh night. But wickedness can not overcome wisdom, and foolishness may not be with her
