abject poverty...

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 nightmare of the day season during the dark season ...of the times and time ..of the season of man ...see son of man ...

     and i was taken and shown in the dark dim streets of the city ...

     and the streets and the buildings and the houses thereof were of the same darkness and dread ...

     and there was a man ...

     and he was trying to get a few last coins out of abandoned machines ...

     and he worked the machine and there was a coin here or there ...

     and he checked the drain in the gutter to see where coins might have fell ...

      and he looked fear fully roundabout for needs be he had leave the place before ...the darkness ...came ...

      and the man looked up the street ...

      and people were coming back into the places roundabout ...

      and they like him had been out foraging for whatsoever was of any worth...

      and or back from any work that they might find ...for scraps ...

      and the people and children dressed in rags came down the street ...

     and made their way around heaps of broken furniture and trash piled into the street ...

     and there was no one ...neither had there been anyone for a long time to take away the trash ...

     evenso all scurried to get into their places before the darkness came ...

     and so much so they paid little attention to the man who had been in their midst ...

     and the man drove away ...with what little he might have gotten ...

     and a youth ran out in front of him ...as though he might get injured ...

     and of that get helps for pity sake ...

     Yet there was no payment for pity ...

     and neither would there be ...

 

and scripture came back to remembrance ...

 

THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 2

Thus sayeth the Lord: I brought this people out of bondage, I gave them my commandments by my servants the Prophets, whom thou wouldest not hear, but despised my counsels. The mother that bear them, sayeth unto them: Go your way ye children, for I am a widow and forsaken: I brought you up with gladness, but with sorrow and heaviness have I lost you: for ye have sinned before the Lord your God, and done the thing that is evil before him. But what shall I now do unto you? I am a widow and forsaken: go your way, O my children, and ask mercy of the Lord. As for me, O' father, I call upon thee for a witness over the mother of these children, which would not keep my covenant: that thou bring them to confusion, and their mother to a spoil, that she bear no more. Let their names be scattered abroad among the heathen, let them be put out of the earth, for they have thought scorn of my covenant.
      Woe be unto the Assur, thou that hidest the unrighteous by thee. Thou wicked people, remember what I did unto Sodom and Gomorha, whos land is turned to pitch and ashes. Even so also I will do unto all them, that hear me not, sayeth the almighty Lord. Thus sayeth the Lord unto Esdras: Tell my people, that I will give them the Kingdom of Jerusalem, which I would have given unto Israel. Their glory also will I take unto me, and give them the everlasting tabernacles, which I had prepared for those.
       The tree of life shall be unto them a sweet smelling ointment: they shall neither labor or be weary. Go ye your way, and ye shall receive it. Pray for yourselves a few days, that they may dwell therein. Now is the Kingdom prepared for you, therefore watch. Take heaven and earth to witness for I have broken the evil in pieces, and created the good, for I live sayeth the Lord. Mother embrace thy children, and bring them up with gladness: make their feet as fast as a piler, for I have chosen them, sayeth the Lord.
      And those that be dead will I raise up again from their places, and bring them out of their graves, for I have known my name in Israel. Fear not thou mother of the children, for I have chosen thee, sayeth the Lord. And for thy help I will send thee my servants Isaie and Jeremy, after whos counsel I have sanctioned and prepared for the twelve trees with diverse fruits, and as many wells, flowing with milk and honey, and seven mountains, where upon there grow roses and lilies, wherein I will fill my children with joy. Execute justice for the widow, be judge for the fatherless: give to the poor: heal the wounded and the sick: laugh not a lame man to scorn: defend the cripple, and let the blind come into the light of my clearness. Keep the old and the young within thy walls: wheresoever thou findest the dead, take them, and bury them, and I shall give you thee, the first place in my resurrection. Hold still (O' my people) and take thy rest, for thy quietness is come. Feed thy children O' thou good nurse, establish their feet: As for the servants whom I have given thee, there shall not be one of them perish, for I will seek them from thy number, vex not thy self.
      For when the day of trouble and heaviness cometh, others shall weep and be sorrowful, but thou shall be merry and plenteous. The heathen shall be jealous, but they shall be able to do nothing against thee, sayeth the Lord. My hands shall cover thee, so that thy children shall not see the fire everlasting. Be joyful O' thou mother with thy children, for I will deliver thee, sayeth the Lord. Remember thy dead children, for I shall bring them out of the earth, and show mercy unto them, for I am merciful, sayeth the Lord almighty.
      Embrace thy children, until I come, and show mercy unto them, for my wells run over, and my grace shall not fail.
      I Esdras received a charge of the Lord upon the mount Oreb, that I should go unto Israel. But when I came unto Israel they set me at naught, and destroyed the commandment of the Lord. And therefore I say unto you, O' ye Heathen that hear and understand: Look for your shepherd, he shall give you everlasting rest: for he is nigh at hand, that shall come in the end of the world. Be ready to the reward of the Kingdom, for the everlasting light shall shine upon you for evermore. Flee the shadows of this world, receive the joyfulness of your glory. I testify my favor openly: O' receive the gift that is given you, and be glad, giving thanks unto him, that hath called you to the heavenly Kingdom.
      Arise up! and stand fast: behold the number of those that be sealed in the feast of the Lord, which are departed from the shadow of the world, and have received glorious garments of the Lord. Take thy number O' Sion, and shut up thy purified, which have fulfilled the law of the Lord. The number of thy children that thou longest for, is fulfilled: beseech the power of the Lord, that thy people which have been called from the beginning, may be hallowed.
      I Esdras saw upon the mount Sion a great people, whom I could not number, and they all praised the Lord with songs of thanksgiving. And in the mist of them was a young man of high stature, more excellent that all they, and on every one of their heads he set a crown, and was ever higher and higher, which I marveled at greatly. So I asked the angel, and said: Sir, what are these? He answered and said unto me: These be they that have put off the mortal clothing and put on the immortal, and have testified and knowledged the name of God. Now are they crowned and receive the reward.
      Then said I unto the angel: what young person is it, that crowneth them, and giveth them the palms in their hands? So he answered and said unto me: It is the son of God, whom they have knowledged in the world. Then began I greatly to commend them, that stood so stiffly for the name of the Lord. And so the angel said unto me: Go thy way, and tell my people, what manner of things and how great wonders of the Lord thy God, thou hast seen!

THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 8

And he answered me, saying: The most Highest made this world for many, but the world to come for few. I will tell thee a similitude, Esdras: As when thou asketh the earth, it shall say unto thee, that it giveth much mould, where earthen vessels are made, but little of it that gold cometh of. Even so is it with the works of this world. There be many created, but few shall be preserved. Then answered I and said: Then swallow up the wit ( thou soul ) and devour the understanding, for thou art agreed to harken and to give ear, and willingly to prophesy: for thou hast no longer space given thee, but only to live. O' Lord, wilt thou not give thy servant leaven, that we may pray before thee, and that thou mayest give seed unto our heart, and build our understanding, that there may come fruit of it: and that everyone which is corrupt, and beareth the state and place of man, may live?
      For thou art alone, and we all are one workmanship of thy hands, like as thou hast said, and like as the body is fashioned now in the childbed, and thou givest the members, and thy creature is preserved in fire and water: and nine months doth thy work suffer thy creature, which is fashioned in her: but the thing that is present and the thing that is preserved, shall both be kept together: and when time is, the childbed deliver the thing, that is kept and grown in her.
      For thou hast commanded the breasts to give milk unto the fruit, that the thing that is created and fashioned, may be nourished for a time: and then thou disposest and orderest it with thy mercy, bringest it up with thy righteousness; nurturest it in thy law, and reformest it with thy understanding, mortifiest it as thy creature, and makest it living as thy work. Seeing then that thou destroyest him, which with so great labors is created and fashioned through thy commandment, thou couldest lightly order, also that the thing which is made, might be preserved.
      And this I speak now of all men in general, as thou knowest: but of thy people, for whose sake I am sorry: and of thy inheritance: for whose cause I mourn: and of Israel, for whom I am woeful: and for Jacob, for whos sake I am grieved: therefore begin I to pray before thee, for myself and for them, for I see the fall of us even of us, that dwell upon earth. But I have heard the swiftness of the judge, which is to come: therefore hear my voice, and understand my words, and I shall speak before thee.
      This is the beginning of the words of Esdras before he was received: O' Lord, thou that dwellest in everlastingness, whose eyes are lifted up in the air, whose stool is exceedingly high, whose glory and majesty may not be comprehended, before whom the Host of heaven stand with trembling, whose keeping is turned in wind and fire, whose word is true, whose talking is steadfast, whose commandment is strong, whose ordinance is fearful, whose look drieth up the depths, whose wrath maketh the mountains to melt away, and whose truth beareth witness: O' hear the prayer of thy servant, and mark with thy ears the petition of thy creature.
      For while I live, I will speak, and so long as I have understanding, I will answer. O' look not upon the sins of thy people, which serve in the truth. Have no respect for the wicked studies of the Heathen, but to the desire of those that keep thy testimonies with sorrows. Think not upon those that have walked *feintly before thee, but upon them, which with will have known thy fear.
      Let it not be thy will to destroy them, which have had beastly manners, but to look upon them that have clearly taught thy law. Take thou no indignation at them, which are worse then beasts: but love them, that always put their trust in thy righteousness and glory: for we and our fathers have all the same sickness and disease, but because of our sins thou shalt be called merciful.
      For thou hast mercy upon us thou shalt be called merciful, where as we have no works of righteousness: for the righteous which have laid up many good works together, shall out of their deeds receive reward. For what is a man, that thou shouldest displeasure at him? Or what is the corruptible generation, that thou shouldest be so rough toward him?
      For of truth there is no man among them that be born, but he hath dealt wickedly: and among the faithful there is none, which hath not done amiss. For in this ( O' Lord ) thy righteousness and thy goodness shall be praised and declared, if thou be merciful unto them, which are not rich in good works.
      Then answered he me and said: Some things hast thou spoken right and according unto thy words it shall be. For I will not verily consider the works of them, which have sinned before death, before the judgement, before destruction, but I will rejoice over the work and thought of the righteous, the holy making and the reward. Like as I have spoken now, so shall it come to pass. For as the husband man soweth much seed upon the ground, and planteth many trees, and yet always the thing that is sown or planted is not all kept safe, neither does it all take root: Even so is it of them that are sown in the world, they shall not all be preserved.
      I answered then and said: If I have found grace, then let me speak. Like as the husband man seed perisheth, if it not receive rain in due season, or if there come to much rain upon it: Even so perisheth a man also, which is created with thy hands, and is like unto thine own image and to thy self, for whos sake thou hast made all things, and likened him unto the husband mans seed. Be not wroth at us, O' Lord, but spare thy people, and have mercy upon thine own inheritance: O' be merciful unto thy creature.
      Then answered he me and said: Things present are for the present, and things to come for as such as be to come. For thou wantest yet much, seeing thou may lovest my creature above me: I have often times drawn near unto thee, but never to the unrighteous. In this also thou art marvelous before the Highest, in that thou has humbled thy self, as it becometh thee, and hast not regarded thine own self, that thou art had in such honor among the righteous. Therefore shall great wretchedness and misery come upon them, that in the later time shall dwell in the world, for they have walked in great pride.
      But understand thou for thyself, and seek out glory for such as be like thee: for unto you paradise is opened, the tree of life is planted, the time to come is prepared, plenteousness is made ready: a city is builded for you, and a rest is prepared, yee perfect goodness and wisdom. The root of evil is marked from you, the weakness and moth is hid from you, and into hell flyeth corruption in forgetfulness. Sorrows are vanished away, and in that end is shown the treasure of immortality. And therefore ask no more questions, concerning the multitude of them that perish. For they have taken liberty, despised the Highest, thought scorn of his law, and forsaken his ways.
      Moreover they have trodden down his righteousness, and said in their heart, that there is no God, yee and that wittingly, for they die. For like as the thing that I have spoken of, is made ready for you: Even so is thirst and pain prepared for them. For it was not his will that man should come to naught: but they which be created have defiled the name of him that made them, and are unthankful unto him, which prepared life for them. And therefore is my judgement now at hand. These things have I not showed unto all men, but unto few: namely unto thee, and such as be like thee.
      Then answered I and said: Behold O' Lord, now hast thou showed me the multitude of thy tokens, which thou wilt begin to do at the last but at what time and when thou hast not showed me

*feintly =dodge, maneuver, pose, pretend

ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 54     

Therefore be glad now, thou barren that barest not. Rejoice, sing and be merry, thou that art not with child: For the desolate hath no more children, then the married wife, saith the Lord. Make thy tent wider, and spread out the hangings of thy habitation: spare not, lay forth thy coards, and make fast thy stakes: for thou shalt break out on the right side and on the left, and thy seed shall have the Gentiles in possession, and dwell in the desolate cities. Fear not, for thou shalt not be confounded: Be not ashamed, for thou shalt not come to confusion. Yee thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the dishonor of thy *wedowhead. For he that made thee, shall be thy Lord and husband ( whose name is the Lord of Hosts ) and thine avenger shall be even the holy one of Israel, the Lord of the whole world. For the Lord shall call thee, being as a desolate sorrowful woman, and as a young wife that hath broken her wedlock: sayeth thy God.
      A little while have I forsaken thee, but with great mercifulness will I take thee up unto me. When I was angry, I hid my face from thee for a little season, but through everlasting goodness shall I pardon thee, sayeth the Lord thy avenger. And this must be unto me as the water of Noe: for as like I have sworn that I will not bring the water of Noe any more upon the world: so have I sworn that I will never be angry with thee, nor reprove thee: The mountains shall remove, and the hills shall fall down: but my loving kindness shall not move, and the bond of my peace be shall not fall down from thee, saith the Lord thy merciful lover. Behold thou poor, vexed, and despised: I will make walls of precious stones, and thy foundation of Sapphires, thy windows of Crystal, thy gates of fine clear stone, and thy borders of pleasant stones. Thy children shall all be taught of God, and I will give them plenteousness of peace. In righteousness shalt thou be grounded, and be far from oppression: for the which thou needest not be afraid, neither for hinderance, for it shall not come nye thee. Behold, the *aleaunt that was far from thee, shall dwell with thee: and he that was sometime a stranger unto thee, shall be joined with thee: Behold, I make the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and he maketh a weapon after his handy work. I make also the waster to destroy: but all the weapons that are made against thee, shall not prosper. And as for all tongues, that shall resist thee in judgment, thou shalt over come them, and condemn them. This is the heritage of the Lords servants, and the righteousness that they shall have of me, saith the Lord
