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 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 foundation of a mans house ...
and outside the foundation ...laying in the weeds was a snake ...
and the people screamed and stiffened ...
Nevertheless i was moved to go look see ...
and i looked and the snake was NOT the serpent ...neither was the snake a viper ...
Yet the snake was one who kept the rats and other vermin away ... a way form the foundation of the mans house ...
and i held up the snake that any and all could see ...that it was harmless to the people ...
Yet of the most and the many they gasp ...and jumped back ...
even as i turned the harmless snake loose ...ion the green grass ...of the foundation ...of the mans house ...
Evenso of a few ...i was given words to speak ...
and i said look see !
and there was the carcass of a dead serpent ... a viper ...laying in the grass ...
and the others who were fainty and frightened and gasping ...could see nothing ...
and would not look upon the dead serpent ...the viper that was destroyed.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
and there is NO WORD "SNAKE" in the original scriptures ...
yet we have been taught to call all serpents and vipers ...snakes ...
Yet the serpent and the vipers is shown plainly ...
even that the serpent and the viper might be avoided ...
even destroyed out of the life and living of any ...
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 59 < (look see the Original and below for notes)
Behold, the Lords hand is not so shortened that it cannot help, neither is his ear so stopped that it may not hear. But your misdeeds have separated you from your God, and your sins hide his face from you, that he heareth you not. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with unrighteousness: Your lips speak leasings, and your tongue setteth out wickedness. No man regardeth righteousness, and no man judgeth truly. Every man hopeth in vain things, and imagineth deceit, conceiveth weariness, and bringeth forth evil. They *breed cockatrice eggs, and weave the spiders web.
*Whoso eateth of their eggs dieth.
*But if one treadeth upon them. there cometh up a serpent.
*Their web maketh no cloth and they may not cover themselves with their labors.
*Their deeds are the deeds of wickedness, and the work of robbery is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make hast to shed innocent blood. Their counsels are wicked counsels, harm and destruction are in their ways. But the way of peace they know not. In their goings is there no equity, their ways are so *crocked that whosoever goeth therin, knoweth nothing of peace.
And this is the cause that equity is so far from us, and the righteousness cometh not nye us. We look for light, lo, it is darkness: for the morning shine, see, we walk in the dark. We grope like the blind upon the wall, we grope even as one that hath none eyes. We stumble at the noon day, as though it were toward night: in the falling places, like men that are half dead. We roar all like Bears, and mourn still like doves. We look for equity, but there is none: for health, but it is far from us. For our offenses are many before thee, and our sins testify against us. Yee we must confess that we offend, and knowledge that we do amiss: Namely transgress and disassemble against the Lord, and fall away from our God: using presumptuous and traitorous imaginations, and casting false matters in our hearts. And therefore is equity gone aside, and righteousness standeth far off: truth is fallen down in the street, and the thing that is plain and open, may not be showed. Yee the truth is laid in prison, and he that refraineth him self from evil, must be spoiled.
When the Lord saw this, it displeased him sore, that there was no where any equity. He saw also, that there was no man, which had pity thereof, or was grieved at it. And he held him by his own power, and cleaved to his own righteousness. He put righteousness upon him for a breast plate, and a fiery helmet of health upon his head. He put on wrath in stead of clothing, and took jealousy about him for a cloak: ( like as when a man goeth forth wrothfully to recompense his enemies, and to be avenged of his adversaries. ) Namely, that he might recompense and reward the Islands where through the name of the Lord might be feared, from the rising Sun: and his majesty, unto the going down of the same.
For he shall come as a violent water stream, which the wind of the Lord hath moved. But unto Sion there shall come a redeemer, and unto them in Jacob that turn from wickedness, sayeth the Lord. I will make this covenant with them, ( saith the Lord): My spirit that is come upon thee, and the words which I have put in thy mouth, shall never go out of thy mouth, nor out the mouth of thy childrens children, from this time forth for evermore
from the marginal notes...(MN) or martyrs notes
*1 To breed cockatrice eggs, is, to go about that which is unsatiating and wicked: A to weave that spiders web, web, is to about vain and trifling things, which are of no value: although they seem ever so excellent unto the doers.
*2 As to ye that eateth of a cockatrice egg dieth, So they that delight in cruel works, or that consent unto them, shall perish.
*3 And if a man unawares, tread on their eggs : and so press out the cockatrice and be touched, he shall be killed of her: evenso shall the thoughts of that evil bring them to death.
*4 As no man maketh clothes of the spiders web, so shall the wicked works enrich no man nor profit him on the day of judgement, when we must go unto that rest in that wedding garment.
*5 By the deeds of wickedness understand guileful and crafty deeds of robbery, violent and tyrannous deeds. The text sayeth that their deeds are the deeds of robbery because they help no man with their hands. But rather rob and beguile the poor: so are they without charity, so feel they not what charity requireth of them.
*5 crocked (crooked or a crock of ; like unto a bedroom chamber pot )
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 11
After this there shall come a rod forth of the Kindred of Jesse, and a blossom out of his root. The spirit of the Lord shall light it: the spirit of wisdom, and understanding: the spirit of counsel, and strength: the spirit of knowledge, and of the fear of God: and shall make him fervent in the fear of God.
For he shall not give sentence, after the thing that shall be brought before his eyes, neither reprove a matter at the first hearing: but with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and with holiness shall he *reform the simple of the world.
He shall smite the world with the staff of his mouth, and with the breath of his mouth shall he slay the wicked. Righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, truth and faithfulness, the girding up of his reins. Then shall the wolf dwell with the lamb, and the Leopard shall lie down by the goat. Bullocks, Lions and cattle shall keep company together, so that a little child shall drive them forth. The cow and the Bear shall feed together, and their young ones shall lie together. The Lion shall eat straw like the ox, or the cow. The child while he sucketh, shall *have a desire to the serpents nest, and when he is weaned, he shall put his hand in to the cockatrice den. No man shall do evil to another, no man shall destroy another, in all the hill of my Sanctuary. For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, even as though the water of the sea flowed over the earth.
Then shall the gentiles inquire after the root of Jesse,( which shall be set up for a token unto the Gentiles ) for his dwelling shall be glorious. At the same time shall the Lord take in hand again, to conquer the remnant of his people,( which are left alive ) From the Assirians, Egyptians, Arabians, Morians, Elamites, Caldeies, Antiochians and Islands of the sea. And he shall set up a token among the Gentiles, and gather together the dispersed of Israel, yee and the out casts of Juda from the four corners of the earth. The hatred of Ephraim and the enmity of Judah shall be clean rooted out. Ephraim shall bear no evil will to Judah, and Judah shall not hate Ephraim: but they both together shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the West: and spoil them together that dwell toward the East. The Idumites and the Moabites shall let their hands fall, and the Ammonites shall be obedient unto them.
The Lord also shall cleave the tongues of the Egyptians sea, and with a mighty wind shall he lift up his hand over the Nilus, and shall smite his seven streams and make men go over dryshod. And thus shall he make a way for his people, that remaineth from the Assirians, what time they departed out of the land of Egypt
and with holiness shall he *reform ( kjv and other bibles of man = reprove ) the simple of the world. shall *have a desire to the serpents nest (kjv and other bibles of man = play on the hole of the asp)
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 14
The same year that King Ahaz died, God threatened by Esai on this manner: Rejoice not ( thou whole Palestina ) as though the rod of him that beateth thee were broken: For out of the serpents root, there shall wax a cockatrice, and the fruit shall be a fiery *worm. But the poor shall feed of the best things, and the simple shall dwell in safety. Thy roots shall I destroy with hunger, and it shall slay thy remnant. Mourn yee ports, weep ye cities, and fear thou ( O whole Palestina ) for there shall come from the North a smoke, whos power no man may abide. Who shall then maintain the messages of the Gentiles? But the Lord stablishes Sion, and the poor of my people shall put their trust in him.
*shall be thy covering. Note this word "covering"; there is..Yet one covering, our Lord and redeemer Christ unto our father God only. RN
*How art thou fallen from heaven,( O Lucifer ) thou fair morning child? (kjv and other bibles of man = son of the morning.) *besom (broom) *worm. (kjv and other bibles of man = flying serpent)
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 30
Woe be unto those shrinking children ( saith the Lord ) which seek counsel, but not at me: which take a web in hand, but not after my will: that they may heap one sin upon another. They go down into Egypt, ( and ask me no counsel ) to seek help at the power of Pharaoh, and comfort in the shadow of the Egyptians. But Pharaohs help shall be your confusion, and the comfort in the Egyptians shadow shall be your own shame. Your rulers have been at Zoan, and your messengers came unto Hanes. But ye shall all be ashamed of the people that may not help you, which shall not bring you strength or comfort, but shame and confusion.
Your beasts have born burdens upon their backs toward the South, through the way that is full of peril and trouble, because of the lion and lions, of the cockatrice and shutting dragon. Yee the Mules bear your substance, and the Camels brought your treasure upon their crooked backs, unto a people that can not help you. For the Egyptians help shall be but vain and lost. Therefore I told you also that your pride should have an end. Wherefore go hence and write them this in their tables, a note in a book: that it may remain by their posterity, and be still kept. For it is an obstinate people, unfaithful children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord.
They dare say to the Prophets: *Intromit yourselves with nothing, and unto the Soothsayers: tell us nothing for to come, but speak friendly words unto us, and preach us false things. Tread out of the way, go out of the path, turn the holy one of Israel from us. Therefore thus saith the holy one of Israel: In so much as ye have cast off your beauty, and comforted yourselves with power and nimbleness, and put your confidence therin: therefore shall ye have this mischief again for your destruction and fall, like as an high wall, that falleth because of some rift ( or blast ) whose breaking cometh suddenly.
And your destruction shall be like as an earthen pot, which breaketh no man touching it, yee and breaketh so sore, that a man shall not find a *shever of it to fetch fire in, or to take water withal out of the pit. For the Lord God, even the holy one of Israel hath promised this: With still sitting and rest shall ye be healed, in quietness and hope shall your strength lie. Notwithstanding ye regard it not, but ye will say: No, for thus we are constrained to flee upon horses. And therefore shall ye flee, we must ride upon swift beasts, and therefore your persecutors shall yet be swifter. A thousand of you shall flee for one, or at the most for five, which do but only give you evil words: until ye be desolate, as a ship mast upon an high mountain, and as a beacon on a high hill.
Yet standeth the Lord waiting, that he may have mercy upon you, and lifteth himself up, that he may receive you to grace. For the Lord God is righteous. Happy are all they that wait for him. For thus ( O thou people of Sion and ye citizens of Jerusalem ) shall ye never be in heaviness, for doubtless he will have mercy upon thee. As soon as he heareth the voice of thy cry, he will help thee. The Lord giveth you the bread of adversity, and the water of trouble. But thine instructor flyeth not far from thee, if thine eyes look unto thine instructor, and thine ears harken to his word, that cryeth after thee and sayeth: this is the way, go this, and turn neither to the right hand nor to the left.
Moreover, if ye destroy the silver works of your Idols, and cast away the golden *coapes that deck them withal ( as filthiness ) and say get you hence: Then well he give rain to the seed, that ye shall sow in the earth, and give you bread of the increase of the earth, so that all shall be plenteous and abundant. Thy cattle also shall he feed in the broad meadows, yee thine oxen and Mules that till the ground, shall eat good fodder, which is purged with the fan. Goodly rivers shall flow out of all his mountains and hills. In the day of the great slaughter when the towers shall fall, the moon shall shine as the sun, and the sunshine shall be seven fold, and have as much shine, as in seven days beside.
In that day shall the Lord bind up the bruised sores of his people, and heal their wounds. Behold, the glory of the Lord shall come from far, his face shall burn, that no man shall be able to abide it, his lips shall wag for very indignation, and his tongue shall be as a consuming fire. His breath like a vehement flood of water, which goeth up to the throat. That he may take away the people, which have turned themselves to vanity, and the bridle of error, that lieth in other folks *chawes.
But ye shall sing, as the use is in the night of the holy *solempnite. Ye shall rejoice from your heart, as they that come with the pipe, when they go up to the mount of the Lord, unto the rock of Israel. The Lord also shall set up the power of his voice, and declare his terrible arm, with his angry countenance, yee and the flame of the consuming fire, with earthquake, tempest of wind, and hailstones. Then shall the Assyrians fear also because of the voice of the Lord, which shall smite him with the rod. And the same rod which the Lord will send upon him, shall move the whole foundation: with trumpet, with noise of war and battle to destroy. For he hath prepared the fire of pain since the beginning, yee even for Kings also. This hath he made deep and wide, the nourishing thereof is fire and wood innumerable, which the breath of the Lord kindleth, as it were a match of brimstone
*intormit To cause or permit to enter; introduce or admit. *shever (shard)
*coapes (glorifying cape, robes ect. ) *chawes (jaws). *solempnite. (solemn night)
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 8
At the same time, saith the Lord: the bones of the kings of Judah, the bones of his princes, the bones of the priests, and prophets, yee and the bones of the citizens of Jerusalem, shall be brought out of their graves and layed against the Sun, the Moon and all the heavenly host: whom they loved, whom they served, whom they ran after, whom they sought and worshipped. They shall neither be gathered together ner buried, but shall lay upon the earth, to their shame and despising.
And all that remain of this wicked generation, shall desire rather to die than to live: wheresoever they remain, and where as I scatter them, saith the Lord of Hosts.
This shalt thou say unto them also: Thus saith the Lord: Do men fall also, that they arise not up again? And turn they so far away, that they never convert? Wherefore then is this people and Jerusalem gone so far back, that they turn not again. They are ever the longer the more obstinate, and will not be converted.
For I have looked, and considered: but there is no man that speaketh a good word: there is no man that taketh repentance for his sin, that will so much as say: wherefore have I done this? But every man ( as soon as he is turned back ) runneth forth still, like a wild horse in battle. The Stork knoweth his appointed time, the Turtledove, the Swallow and the Crane consider the time of travail: but my people will not know the time of the punishment of the Lord. How dare ye say then: we are wise, we have the law of the Lord among us?
Behold, the deceitful pen of the scribes, setteth forth lies: therefore shall the wise be confounded, they shall be afraid and taken: for lo, they have cast out the word of the Lord: what wisdom can then be among them? Wherefore, I will give their wives unto aliens, and their fields to destroyers.
From the lowest to the highest, they follow all filthy lucre: and from the Prophet unto the priest, they deal with all lies. Nevertheless, they heal the hurt of my people with sweet words, saying peace, peace where there is no peace at all.
*Fie for shame, how abominable things do they? and yet they be not ashamed, yee they know no shame.
Wherefore in the time of their visitation, they shall fall among dead bodies, sayeth the Lord.
Moreover I will gather them in ( sayeth the Lord ) so that there shall not be one grape upon the vine, neither one fig upon the fig tree, and the leaves shall be plucked off.
Then will I cause them to depart, and say: why prolong we the time? Let us gather ourselves together, and go into the strong city, there shall we be in rest: for the Lord our God hath put us to silence, and given us water mixed with gall, to drink: because we have sinned against him.
We looked for peace, and we fair not the better, we waited for the time of health, and lo, there is nothing but trouble.
Then shall the noise of his horses be heard from Dan, the whole land shall be afraid at the neighing of his strong horses: for they shall go in, and devour the land, with all that is in it: the cities, and those that dwell therin. Moreover , I will send cockatrices and serpents among you ( which will not be charmed ) and they shall bite you sayeth the Lord.
Sorrow is come upon me, and heaviness vexeth my heart: for lo, the voice of the crying of my people is heard from a far country: Is not the Lord in Sion? Is not the king in her? Wherefore then have they grieved me ( shall the Lord say ) with their images and foolish strange fashions? The harvest is gone, the Summer hath an end, and we are not helped. I am sore vexed, because of the hurt of my people: I am heavy and abashed, for there is no more *Tryacle at Gilaad, and there is no Physician, that can heal the hurt of my people
Fie = used to express distaste or disapproval.
Tryacle = speech of sentiment, or medicine, antidote against poison. molasses.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 20
And I saw an Angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit, and a great chain in his hand. And he took the dragon that old serpent, which is the devil and Sathanas, and he bound him a thousand years: and cast him into the bottomless pit, and he bound him, and set a seal on him, that he should deceive the people no more, till the thousand years were fulfilled. And after that he must be loosed for a little season.
And I saw seats and they sat upon them and judgement was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of *Jesu, and for the word of God: which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had taken his mark upon their foreheads, or on their hands: and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years: but the other of the dead men lived not again, until the thousand years were finished. This is that first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. For on such shall the second death have no power, for they shall be the Priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the people which are in the four quarters of the earth Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea: and they went up on the plain of the earth, and compassed the tents of the saints about, and the beloved city. And fire came down from God, out of heaven, and devoured them: and the devil that deceived them, was cast into a lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet were and shall be tormented day and night for ever more.
And I saw a great white seat and him that sat on it, from whose face fled away both the earth and heaven, and their place was no more found. And I saw the dead, both great and small *stonde before God: And the books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged of those things which were written in the books according to their deeds: and the sea gave up her dead, which were in her, and death and hell delivered up the dead, which were in them: and they were judged every man according to his deeds. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is that second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life, was cast into the lake of fire
*Jesu: Hebrew for Jesus. *stonde (stunned) *stonde: stunned see stand plainly in the 19th Chapter and stunned in the 12th Chapter.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 3
And no man ascendeth up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, that is to say, the son of man which is in heaven.
And as Moses lift up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the son of man be lift up, that none that believeth in him perish: but have eternal life.
For God so loveth the world, that he hath given his only son, that none that believe in him, should perish: but should have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world, to condemn the world: but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him, shall not be condemned. But he that believeth not, is condemned all ready, because he believeth not in the name of the only son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and the men loved darkness more than light, because their deeds were evil. For every man that evil doeth, hateth the light: neither cometh to light lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doth truth, cometh to the light that his deeds might be known, how that they are wrought in God.
