american mans lost identity...

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 an american man ...

and he was wandering in a barrio in the united states ...

and the man had been in an accident ...or had been beaten ...

and the man had been utterly robbed ...

evenso so severe was his attack ...and injury ...that he had lost his memory ...that part of his mind ...

even that he had no identity...or memory of who ...he might have been... 

and his face...was scared ...

even so much so that ...he was unrecognizable ...even to himself ...

and his body body beaten and lame ...

and again ...he wandered in a place...in his own country ...that was like a third world ...

even a foreign place to him ...

and he was as though poor and of little regard ...

even as a vagabond ...homeless ...in his own country ...

and the american man wandered around in that place wondering ...

even who he was ...what he was ...and what would become of him ...

and there were those gave him a little work ...so he might eat a little ...something ...

and there were those that thought to make money off of him ...by ransom ...to find any that might pay for him ...

and pay the more ...for his identity ...

and much time passed as the american man wandered ...not knowing who he was ...having lost ...his identity...

even so...the day came ...and he was able to call out ...

and his identity...came back to him ... 

and he was reunited with his family ...

and ...his children ...ran up to him ...hugging and kissing him ...and holding...on to him tightly ...

Yet his wife was standoffish ...(stand off fish )...

and she somewhat thought he had run off from her ...

and she somewhat accused him ...

Yet she said he could come back...to his house ...the house ...(her house ) ...if he did as she pleased ...

even as she might allow ...and that he might live...according to her will ...

and get back to work ...that she might have the increase ...of his wages ...

and it had been thought ...that if the american man was dead ...what a profit it would be ...to collect ...his life ...insurance ...

 

and scripture came back to remembrance ...

  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

THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 6

   And now, O Lord, the heathen which have ever been reputed as nothing, have gone to be lords over us, and to devour us: but we thy people ( whom thou hast called the first born, thy only begotten, and thy fervent lover ) are given into their hands and power. If the world be made now for our sakes, why have we not the inheritance in the possession with the world? How long shall this endure?

THE FIRST OF THE MACHABEES Chpt 1

In those days went there out of Israel wicked men, which moved much people with their council, saying: Let us go and make a covenant with the Heathen, that are round about us: for since we departed from them, we have had much sorrow. So this device pleased them well, and certain of the people took upon them for to go unto the king, which gave them license to do after the ordinances of the Heathen. Then set they up an open school ( at Jerusalem ) of the laws of the Heathen, and were no more circumcised: but forsook the holy Testament, and joined themselves to the Heathen, and were clean sold to do mischief.

THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 2

For the ungodly talk and imagine thus among themselves ( but not right: ) The time of our life is but short and tedious, and when a man is once gone, he hath no more joy ner pleasure, neither know we any man that turneth again from death: for we are born of naught and we shall be here after as though we had never been. For our breath is as a smoke in our nostrils, and the words as a spark to move our heart. As for our body, it shall be very ashes that are quenched, and our soul shall vanish as the soft air. Our life shall pass away as the trace of a cloud, and come to nought as the mist that is driven away with the beams of the *Son, and put down with the heat thereof. Our name shall be forgotten by little and little, and no man shall have our works in remembrance.
      For our time is a very shadow that passeth away, and after our end there is no returning, for it is fast sealed, so that no man cometh again. Come on therefore, let us enjoy the pleasures that there are, and let us soon use the creature like as in youth. We will fill ourselves with good wine and ointment, and there shall no flower of the time go by us. We will crown ourselves with rose afore they be withered. There shall be no fair meadow, but our lust shall go through it. Let everyone of you be partaker of our *voluptuousness. Let us leave some token of our pleasure in every place, for this is our portion, else we get nothing. Let us oppress the poor righteous, let us not spare the widow, ner old man, let us not regard the heads that are gray for age. Let the law of unrighteousness be our authority, for the thing that is feeble is nothing worth. Therefore let us *defraud the righteous; And why? He is not for our profit, yee he is clean contrary to our doings. He checketh us for offending against the law, and sclander us as transgressors of all nurture. He maketh his boast to have the knowledge of God, yee he calleth himself Gods son. He is the betrayer of our thoughts: It grieveth us also to look upon him, for his life is not like other mens, his ways are of another fashion. He counteth us as but vain persons, he withdraweth himself from our ways as from filthiness: he commendeth greatly the latter end of the just, and maketh his boast that God is his father. Let us see if his words be true, let us prove what shall come upon him: so we will know what end he shall have. For if he be the true son of God, he will receive him and deliver him from the hands of his enemies. Let us examine him with despiteful rebuke and tormenting, that we may know his dignity and prove his patience. Let us condemn him with the most shameful death: for like as he hath spoken, so shall he be rewarded.
      Such things do the ungodly imagine, and go astray, for their own wickedness hath blinded them. As for the mysteries of God, they understand them not: they neither hope for the reward of righteousness, ner regard the worship that holy souls shall have. For God created man to be undestroyed, yee after the image of his own likeness made he him. Nevertheless through envy of the devil came death into the world, and they that do hold his side, do as he doeth

*Son: cap S and exactly as found in the text, and they did spell son: sonne and sun: sunne different. *voluptuousness. (sensory wantonness) *defraud (cheat by deceiption)

THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 4

Jesus then full of the holy ghost returned from Jordan, and was carried of the spirit into wilderness, and was forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days ate he nothing. And when they were ended, he after ward hungered. And the devil said unto him: if thou be the son of God command this stone that it be bread. And Jesus answered him saying: It is written, man shall not live by bread only, but by every word of God.
      And the devil took him up into an high mountain, and showed him all the kingdom of the world, even in the twinkling of an eye. And the devil said unto him: all this power will I give thee every *whit and the glory of them: for that is delivered to me, and to whosoever I will, I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, they shall be all thine. Jesus answered him and said: hence from me Satan. For it is written: Thou shalt honour the Lord thy God, and him only serve.
      And he carried him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him: If thou be the son of God, cast thyself down from hence. For it is written, he shall give his Angels charge over thee to keep thee, and with their hands they shall stay thee up that thou dash not thy foot against a stone. Jesus answered and said to him, it is said: thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. As soon as the devil had ended all his temptations, he departed from him, for a season.

     and to whosoever I will, I give it. 

If thou therefore wilt worship me, they shall be all thine.

 

TO THE GALATHIANS Chpt 1

 Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the armour of God, that ye may stand steadfast against the crafty assaults of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood: but against rule, against power, and against worldly rulers of the darkness of this world against spiritual wickedness, for heavenly things.
      For this cause take unto you the armour of God, that ye may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand perfect in all things.
      Stand therefore, and your loins girt about with verity, having on the breastplate of righteousness, and shod with shoes prepared by the Gospell of peace. Above all take to you the shield of faith, wherewith ye may quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. And pray always with all manner prayer and supplication: and that in the spirit: and watch thereunto with all instance and supplication for all saints and for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to utter the secrets of the Gospell, whereof I am a messenger in bonds, that therein I may speak freely, as it becometh me to speak.

 

JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 51

Thus hath the Lord said: Behold, I will raise up a perilous wind against Babylon and her citizens, that bear evil will against me. I will send also into Babylon fanners, to fan her out, and destroy her land: for in the day of her trouble they shall be about her on every side: Moreover, the Lord hath said unto the bow men, and to them that climb over the walls in breast plates: He shall not spare her young men, kill down all her host. Thus the slain shall fall down in the land of the Caldees, and the wounded in the streets. As for Israel and Juda, they shall not be forsaken of their God, of the Lord of Hosts, of the holy one of Israel: no, though they have filled all their land full of sin. Fly away from Babylon, every man save his life. Let no man hold his tongue to her wickedness, for the time of the Lords vengeance is come, yee he shall reward her again. Babylon hath been in the Lords hand a golden cup, that maketh all lands drunken. Of her wine have all people drunken, therefore are they out of their wits. But suddenly is Babylon fallen and destroyed. Mourn for her, bring plasters for her wounds, if she may peradventure be healed again. We would have made Babylon whole ( sayeth they ) but she is not recovered. Therefore will we let her alone, and go every man into his own country. For her judgment is come in to heaven, and is gone up to the clouds. And therefore come on, we will show Sion the work of the Lord our God.
      Make sharp arrows, and fill the quivers: for the Lord hath raised up the spirit of the king of the Meedes, which hath already a desire to destroy Babylon. This shall be the vengeance of the Lords, and the vengeance of his temple.
      Set up tokens upon the walls of Babylon, make your watch strong, set your watchmen in array, yee hold private watches: and yet for all that shall the Lord go forth with the devise, which he hath taken upon them that dwell in Babylon.
      O thou that dwellest by the great waters, O thou that hast so great treasure and riches, thine end is come: and the raking of thy winnings. The Lord of Hosts hath sworn by himself, that he will over whelm thee with men like grasshoppers in number, which with courage shall cry Alarm, Alarm against thee. Yee even the Lord of Hosts, that with his power made the earth, with his wisdom prepared the round world, and with his discretion spied out the heavens. As soon as he letteth his voice be heard, the waters in the air wax fierce: He draweth up the clouds from the ends of the earth. He turneth the lightnings to rain, he bringeth the winds out of their secret places. By the reason of wisdom, all men are become fools. Confounded are all the casters of images: for the thing that they make is but deceit, and hath no breath. Vain is it and worthy to be laughed at: and in the time of visitation it shall perish.
      Nevertheless, the portion of Jacob is none such: but he that made all things, whose name is the Lord of Hosts, he is the rod of his inheritance. Thou breakest my weapons of war, and yet through thee I have scattered the nations and kingdoms: Through thee have I scattered horse and horse man, yee the chariots, and such as sat upon them: through thee I have scattered man and woman, old and young, bachelor and maiden. Through thee I have scattered the shepherd and his flock, the husband man and his cattle, the princes and rulers. Therefore will I reward the city of Babylon and all her citizens the Caldees, with all the evil which they have done unto Sion: yee that ye yourselves shall see it, sayeth the Lord. Behold, I come upon thee ( thou noisesome hill ) sayeth the Lord, thou that destroyest all lands. I will stretch out my hand over thee, and cast down from the stoney rocks: and will make thee a brunt hill, so that neither corner stones, ner pinnacles, ner foundation stones shall be taken any more out of thee, but waste and desolate shalt thou lie for evermore, sayeth the Lord.
      Set up a token in the land, blow the trumpets among the Heathen, provoke the nations against her, call the kingdoms of Ararat, Menni, and Ascanes against her: number out Taphsar against her, bring as great a sort of horses against her, as if they were grasshoppers. Prepare against them the people of the Meedes with their kings princes and all their chief rulers, yee and the whole land that is under them.
      The land also shall shake and be afraid, when the devise of the Lord shall come forth against Babylon: to make the land of Babylon so waste, that no man shall dwell any more therin. The Worthies of Babylon shall leave the battle, and keep themselves in strongholds, their strength hath failed them, they shall be like women. Their dwelling places shall be burnt up, their bars shall be broken. One pursuant shall meet another, yee one post shall come by another, to bring the king of Babylon tidings: that his city is taken in on every side, the *foordes occupied, the fences brunt up, and the soldiers sore afraid.
      For thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel: The daughter of Babylon hath been in her time like as a threshing floor but shortly shall her harvest come. Nabuchodonosor the king of Babylon hath devoured and destroyed me, he hath made me an empty vessel. He swallowed me up like a dragon, and filled his belly with my delicates: he hath cast me out. he hath taken my substance away and the thing that was left me hath he carried unto Babylon, sayeth the daughter that dwelleth in Sion: yee and my blood also unto the Caldees, sayeth Jerusalem. Therefore thus sayeth the Lord: Behold, I will drink up her see, and dry up her water springs.
      Babylon shall become an heap of stones a dwelling place for dragons, a fearfulness and wondering, because no man dwelleth there. They shall roar together like lions, and as young lions when they be angry, so shall they bend them selves. In their heat I shall set drink before them, and they shall be drunken for joy: Then shall they sleep an everlasting sleep, and never wake, sayeth the Lord. I shall carry them down to be slain like sheep, like whethers and goats. O how was Sesach won? O, how was the glory of the whole land taken? how happeneth it, that Babylon is so wondered at among the Heathen? The sea is risen over Babylon, and hath covered her with his great waves. Her cities are layed waste, the land lieth unbuilded and void: it is a land where no man dwelleth, and where no man traveleth through. Moreover, I will visit Bel at Babylon: and the thing that he hath swallowed up, that same shall I pluck out of his mouth. The Gentiles also shall run no more unto him, yee and the walls of Babylon shall fall.
      O My people, come out of Babylon, that every man may save his life, from the fearful wrath of the Lord. Be not faint hearted, and fear not at every rumor that shall be heard in the land: for every year bringeth new tidings, yee strange wickedness and lordship. And lo, the time cometh that I will visit the images of Babylon, and the whole land shall be confounded, yee and her slain shall lie in the midst of her. Heaven and earth with all that is therin, shall rejoice over Babylon, when the destroyers shall come upon her from the North, sayeth the Lord.
      Like as Babylon hath beaten down and the slain many out of Israel, so shall there fall many, and be slain in all her kingdom. Ye that have escaped the sword, haste you, stand not still, remember the Lord afar off: and think upon Jerusalem, for we were ashamed to hear the blasphemes: our faces were covered with shame, because the strange aliens came into the Sanctuary of the Lord. Wherefore, behold, ( sayeth the Lord ) the time cometh, that I will visit the images of Babylon, and through the whole land they shall mourn and fall. Though Babylon climbeth up into heaven, and keep her power an high: yet shall I send her destroyers, saith the Lord.
      A piteous cry shall be heard from Babylon, and a great misery from the land of the Caldees: when the Lord destroyeth them, and when he driveth out the high stomach and proud boasting, wherewith they have been as furious as the waves of great water floods, and made great cracks with their words. For the destroyers shall come upon her ( even upon Babylon ) which shall take her worthies, and break their bows : for God is disposed to avenge himself upon them, and sufficiently to recompense them. Yee ( sayeth the Lord ) I will make their Princes, their wise men, their chief rulers and all their worthies, drunken: so that they shall sleep an everlasting sleep, and never wake: Thus sayeth the King, whose name is the Lord of Hosts.
      Moreover, Thus saith the Lord of Hosts: The thick wall of Babylon shall be broken, and her proud gates shall be burnt up. And the thing that the Gentiles and the people have wrought with great travail and labor, shall come to naught and be consumed with fire.
      This is the charge that Jeremy gave unto Saraiah the son of Neriah, the son of Maasiah, when he went toward Babylon with Zedekiah the King of Judah, in the fourth year of his reign. Now this Saraiah was a peaceable Prince. Jeremy wrote in a book all the misery that should come upon Babylon, yee and all these sermons that be written against Babylon, and gave Saraiah this charge: When thou comest unto Babylon, see that you read all these words, and say: O' Lord, thou art determined to root out this place, so that neither people ner cattle shall dwell there any more, but to lie waste for ever: and when thou hast read out the book, bind a stone to it, and cast it in the midst of Euphrates, and say: Even thus shall Babylon sink, and be thrust down with the burden of trouble, that I will bring upon her: so that she shall never come up again. Thus far are the preachings of Jeremy

*foordes = shallow area were a crossing can be made through water, perhaps like a moat.

THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 18

 And after that, I saw another Angel come from heaven, having great power, and the earth was lightened with his brightness. And he cried mightily with a strong voice saying: Great babylon is fallen, is fallen: and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of all foul spirits, and a cage of all unclean and hateful birds for all nations have drunken of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and her merchants are waxed rich of the abundance of her pleasures.
      And I heard another voice from heaven, say: come away from her my people, that ye be not partakers in her sins, that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins are gone up to heaven, and God hath remembered her wickedness. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and give her double according to her works. And pour in double to her in the same cup which she filled unto you. And as much as she glorified herself and lived wantonly so much pour ye in for her of punishment and sorrow, for she said in her heart: I sit being a queen and am no widow and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come at one day, death, and sorrow, and hunger, and she shall be burnt with fire: for strong is the Lord God which judgeth her.
      And the kings of the earth shall beweep her and wail over her, which have committed fornication with her, and have lived wantonly with her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, and shall stand afar off, for fear of her punishment, saying . Alas, Alas, that great city babylon, that mighty city: for at one hour is her judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and wail in themselves, for no man will buy their ware any more, the ware of gold and silver, and precious stones, neither of pearl, and raynes and purple, and scarlet, and all thine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass and of iron, and cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and bodies and souls of men.
      And the apples that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee. And all things which were dainty, and had in price are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more. The merchants of these things which were waxed rich, shall stand afar off from her, for fear of the punishment of her, weeping and wailing, and saying: Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in raynes, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stone, and pearls: for at one hour so great riches is come to nought.
      And every ship governor, and all they that occupied ships, and shipmen which work in the sea, stood afar off, and cried, when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying: what city is like unto this great city? And they cast dust on their heads, and cried weeping, and wailing, and said: Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea, by the reason of her costliness, for at one hour is she made desolate.
      Rejoice over her thou heaven, and ye holy Apostles and Prophets: for God hath given your judgement on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying: with such violence shall that great city babylon be cast, and shall be found no more. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more in thee: and no crafts man, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee. And the sound of a mill shall be heard no more in thee, and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride, shall be heard no more in thee, for thy merchants were the great men of the earth. And with thine enchantment were deceived all nations: and in her was found the blood of the Prophets, and of the saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth

THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 20

 The same day at night, which was the morrow after the Saboth day, when the doors were shut, where the disciples were assembled together for fear of the Jewes, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and said to them: peace be with you. And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands, and his side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord. Then said Jesus to them again: peace be with you. As my father sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said that, he breathed on them and said unto them: Receive the holy ghost. Whosoevers sins ye remit they are remitted unto them. And whosoevers sins ye retain, they are retained.
      But Thomas one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples said unto him: we have seen the Lord. And he said unto them: except I see in his hands the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. And after eight days again his disciples were with in, and Thomas with them. Then came Jesus when the doors were shut, and stood in the midst and said: peace be with you.
      After that said he to Thomas: bring thy finger hither and see my hands, and bring thy hand and thrust it into my side, and be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered and said unto him: my Lord, and my God. Jesus said unto him: Thomas, because thou hast seen me, therefore thou believest: Happy are they that have not seen, and yet believe.
      And many other signs did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. These are written that ye might believe, that Jesus is Christ the son of God, and that in believing ye might have life through his name
