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 dark season ...of the times and time ..of the season of man ...see son of man ...
and i was taken into the land of Godlessness ...
and shown the houses of the unGodly...
even within the houses of the unGodly ...
and the sill at the doors of the houses were high ...
even that whethersoever any went in the house or came out ...they would stumble ...
and the foundations were crooked and walls were not true ...
and the house moved on slippery sand whensoever the wind blue ...
and the doors and windows were always ill fitting ...
and the doors and windows were changed continually ...
and the house was painted diverse colors ...
and nothing stayed the same ...save it was in all ways changing ...
even whatsoever fit the mood or wants or wishes ...
and the house was like a menagerie of desperate desires of meaninglessness...
and on a whim or wish anything would be changed ...
and whensoever anything happened that seemed "not normal" the unGodly would say "are you serious !!!"
and whensoever anything happened tragically the unGodly would say "are you serious !!!"
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
TO THE EPHESIANS Chpt 6
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.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 3
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 GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 22
And Jesus answered and spake unto them again, in similitudes, saying. The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain King, which married his son, and sent forth his servants, to call them that were bid to the wedding, and they would not come. Again he sent forth other servants, saying. Tell them which are bidden: behold I have prepared my dinner, mine oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready, come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways: one to his *firm place, another about his merchandise, the remnant took his servants and intreated them ungodly and slew them. When the king heard that, he was wroth, and sent forth his warriors and destroyed those murderers, and burnt up their city.
Then said he to his servants: the wedding was prepared. But they which were bidden, were not worthy. Go ye therefore out into the highways, and as many as ye find, bid them to the marriage. The servants went out into the highways, and gathered to gether as many as they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding was furnished with guests. Then the king came in, to visit the guests, and spied there a man which had not on a wedding garment, and said unto him: friend, how fortuned it that thou camest in hither and hast not on a wedding garment? And he was even speechless. Then said the king to his ministers: take and bind him hand and foot, and cast him into utter darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called and few be chosen
ST. PAUL TO THE ROMANS Chpt 4
What shall we say then, that Abraham our father as pertaining to the flesh, did find? If Abraham were justified by deeds, then hath he wherein to rejoice: but not with God. For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. To him that worketh, is the reward not reckoned of favour: but of duty. To him that worketh not but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, is his faith counted for righteousness. Even as David describeth the blessedfulness of the man unto whom God ascribeth righteousness without deeds. Blessed are they, whose unrighteousnesses are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is that man to whom the Lord imputeth not sin.
ST. PAUL TO THE ROMANS Chpt 5
Because therefore that we are justified by faith, we are at peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: by whom we have away in through faith, unto this grace wherein we stand and rejoice in hope of the praise that shall be given of God. Neither do we so only: but also we rejoice in tribulation. For we know that tribulation bringeth patience, patience bringeth experience, experience bringeth hope. And hope maketh not ashamed for the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the holy ghost, which is given unto us.
For when we were yet weak, according to the time: Christ died for us which were ungodly. Yet scarce will any man die for a righteous man. Peradventure for a good man durst a man die. But God setteth out his love that he hath to us, seeing that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more than now (seeing we are justified in his blood) shall we be saved from wrath, through him.
THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 12
In spiritual things brethren I would not have you ignorant. Ye know that ye were gentiles, and went your ways unto dumb idols, even as ye were led. Wherefore I declare unto you that no man speaking in the spirit of God, defieth Jesus. Also no man can say that Jesus is the Lord: but by the holy ghost. There are diversities of gifts verily, yet but one spirit. And there are differences of administrations, and yet but one Lord. And there are diverse manners of operations, and yet but one God which worketh all things that are wrought, in all creatures. The gifts of the spirit are given to every man, to profit the congregation. To one is given through the spirit the utterance of wisdom: To another is given the utterance of knowledge by the same spirit. To another is given faith, by the same spirit. To another the gifts of healing by the same spirit. To another power to do miracles. To another prophecy. To another judgement of spirits. To another diverse tongues. To another the interpretation of tongues. And these all worketh even the self same spirit, dividing to every man several gifts, even as he will.
For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of one body though they be many, yet are but one body: even so is Christ. For in one spirit are we all baptised to make one body, whether we be Jewes or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free, and have all drunk of one spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot say: I am not the hand, therefore I am not of the body: is he therefore not of the body? And if the ear say, I am not the eye: therefore I am not of the body: is he therefore not of the body? If all the body were an eye, where were then the ear? If all were hearing. where were the smelling? But now hath God disposed the members every one of them in the body, at his own pleasure. If they were all one member: where were the body? Now are there many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor the head also to the feet, I have no need of you. Yee rather a great deal those members of the body which seem to be most feeble, are most necessary. And upon those members of that body which we think least honest, put we most honesty on. And our ungodly parts have most beauty on. For our honest members need it not. But God hath so disposed the body, and hath given most honour to that part which lacked, lest there should be any strife in the body: but that the members should indifferently care one for another. And if one member suffer, all suffer with him: if one member be had in honour, all members be glad also.
Ye are the body of Christ, and members one of another. And God hath also ordained in the congregation, first the Apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, then them that do miracles: after that, the gifts of healing, helpers, governors, diversity of tongues.
Are all Apostles? Are all Prophets? Are all teachers? Are all doers of miracles? Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? Covet after the best gifts. And yet show I unto you a more excellent way
THE FIRST TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 1
We know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully, understanding this, how that the law is not given unto a righteous man, but unto the unrighteous and disobedient to the ungodly and to sinners, to unholy and unclean, to murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, to manslayers and whoremongers: to them that defile themselves with mankind: to menstealers: to liars and to perjured, and so forth if there be any other thing that is contrary to wholesome doctrine, according to the Gospell of the glory of the blessed God, which gospel is committed unto me.
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 4
See that none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or an evildoer, or as a busybody in other mens matters. If any man suffer as a Christian man, let him not be ashamed: but let him glorify God on his behalf. For the time is come that judgement must begin at the house of God. If it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them which believe not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved: where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God, commit their souls to him with well doing, as unto a faithful creator
THE SECOND EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 2
There were false Prophets among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you: which privily shall bring in damnable sects, even denying the Lord that hath bought them, and bring upon themselves swift damnation, and many shall follow their damnable ways, by which the way of truth shall be evil spoken of, and through covetousness shall they with *feigned words make merchandise of you, whose judgment is not far off, and their damnation sleepeth not.
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down into hell, and delivered them in chains of darkness, to be kept unto judgement: Neither spared the old world, but saved Noah the eight preacher of righteousness, and brought in the flood upon the world of the ungodly, and turned the cities of Zodom and Gomor into ashes: overthrew them, damned them, and made of them an example unto all that after should live ungodly. And just Lot vexed with the uncleanly conversation of the wicked, delivered he. For he being righteous and dwelling among them in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds. The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and how to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment for to be punished: namely them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise the rulers. Presumptuous are they, and stubborn and fear not to speak evil of them that are in authority. When the angels which are greater both in power and might, receive not of the Lord railing judgement against them. But these as brute beasts, naturally made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of that they know not, and shall perish through their own destruction, and receive the reward of unrighteousness.
They count it pleasure to live deliciously for a season. Spots they are and filthiness, living at pleasure, and in deceivable ways, feasting with you: having eyes full of *advoutry and that cannot cease to sin, beguiling unstable souls. Hearts they have exercised with covetousness. They are cursed children, and have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, which loved the reward of unrighteousness: but was rebuked of his iniquity. The tame and dumb beast, speaking with mans voice, forbade the foolishness of the Prophet.
These are wells without water and clouds carried about of a tempest, to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they have spoken the swelling words of vanity, they beguile with wantonness through the lusts of the flesh, them that were clean escaped: but now are wrapped in errors. They promise them liberty, and are themselves the bond servants of corruption. For of whom soever a man is overcome, unto the same is he in bondage. For if they, after they have escaped from the filthiness of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and of the saviour Jesus Christ, they are yet tangled again therein and overcome: then is the latter end worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them, not to have known the way of righteousness than after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment given unto them. It is happened unto them according to the true proverb: The dog is turned to his vomit again, and the sow that was washed, to her wallowing in the mire
*feigned (made up, beguiling) *advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God, being devoted to something or some one else. see James 2 for adultery
THE SECOND EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 3
This is the second epistle that I now write unto you, beloved, wherewith I stir up, and warn your pure minds, to call to remembrance the words which were told before of the holy Prophets, and also the commandment of us the Apostles of the Lord and saviour.
This first understand that there shall come in the last days mockers, which will walk after their own lusts and say, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers died, all things continue in the same estate wherein they were at the beginning. This they know not (and that willingly) how that the heavens a great while ago were, and the earth that was in the water, appeared up out of the water, by the word of God: by the which things the world that then was, perished, overflowen with the water. But the heavens verily and earth which are now, are kept by the same word in store, and reserved unto fire, against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
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.
Nevertheless the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in the which day, the heavens shall perish with terrible noise, and the elements shall melt with heat, and the earth with the works that are therein shall burn.
If all these things shall perish, what manner persons ought ye to be in holy conversation and godliness: looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, in which the heavens shall perish with fire, and the elements shall be consumed with heat. Nevertheless we look for a new heaven and a new earth, according to his promise, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Wherefore dearly beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot and undefiled. And suppose that the long suffering of the Lord is salvation, even as our dearly beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given unto him, wrote to you, yee, almost in every epistle speaking of such things: among which are many things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable, pervert, as they do other scriptures unto their own destruction. Ye therefore beloved, seeing ye know it beforehand, beware lest ye be also plucked away with the error of the wicked, and fall from your own steadfastness: but grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. To whom be glory both now and for ever. Amen
THE EPISTLE OF JUDAS Chpt 1
Judas the servant of Jesus Christ, the brother of James. To them which are called and sanctified in God the father, and preserved in *Jesu Christ. Mercy unto you and peace and love be multiplied.
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation it was needful for me to write unto you, to exhort you, that ye should continually labour in the faith which was once given unto the saints. For there are certain craftily crept in, of which it was written a fore time unto such judgement. They are ungodly and turn the grace of our God unto wantonness, and deny God the only Lord, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
My mind is therefore to put you in remembrance, for as much as ye once know this how that the Lord (after that he had delivered the people out of Egypt) destroyed them which afterward believed not. The angels also which kept not their first estate: but left their own habitation: he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day: even as Sodom and Gomor, and the cities about them (which in like manner defiled them selves with fornication, and followed strange flesh) are set forth for an example, and suffer the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise these dreamers defile the flesh, despise rulers and speak evil of them that are in authority.
Michael the archangel when he strove against the devil, and disputed the body of Moses, durst not give railing sentence, but said: the Lord rebuke thee. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: and what things they know naturally, as beasts which are without reason, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe be unto them, for they have followed the way of Cain and are utterly given to the error of Balaam for *lucres sake, and in the treason of Core.
These are spots which of your kindness feast together, without fear, feeding themselves. Clouds they are without water, carried about of winds, and trees with out fruit at gathering time, twice dead and plucked up by the roots. They are raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame. They are wandering stars to whom is reserved the mist of darkness for ever.
Enoch the seventh from Adam prophesied before of such, saying. Behold, the Lord shall come with thousands of saints, to give judgement against all men, and to rebuke all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds, which they have ungodly committed, and of all their cruel speakings, which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts, whose mouths speak proud things. They have men in great reverence because of advantage. But ye beloved, remember the words which were spoken before of the Apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, how that they told you that there should be beguilers in the last time which should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These are makers of sects, fleshly, having no spirit.
But ye dearly beloved, edify your selves in your most holy faith, praying in the holy ghost, and keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, unto eternal life. And have compassion on some, separating them: and other save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, and hate the filthy vesture of the flesh.
Unto him that is able to keep you, that ye fall not, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with joy, that is to say, to God our saviour which only is wise, be glory, majesty, dominion, and power, now and for ever. Amen
and whensoever anything happened....
the unGodly would say "are you serious !!!"
