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 nightmare of the dark season ...of the times and time ..of the season of man ...see son of man ...
and as i was awakened came words without speaking ...
and the words were as though to announce the birthday of Michael ...
even as if to say "happy birthday" Michael ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
and i measured the matters of "birthdays" in and of the word of God.
and i found only two birthdays of mention ...
and one was of pharo ...FIRST BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 40
And it came to pass the third day which was Pharaos birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants. And he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants. And restored the chief butler unto his butlership again, and he reached the cup into Pharaos hand, and hanged the chief baker: even as Joseph had interpreted unto them. Notwithstanding the chief butler remembered not Joseph, but forgot him
and one was of herode ...THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 14
But when Herods birthday was come the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod. Wherefore he promised with an oath, that he would give her whatsoever she would ask. And she being informed of her mother before, said: give me here John Baptists head in a platter. And the King sorrowed. Nevertheless for his oaths sake, and for their sakes which sat also at the table, he commanded it to be given her: and sent and beheaded John in the prison, and his head was brought in a platter and given to the damsel, and she brought it to her mother. And his disciples came and took up his body, and buried it: and went and told Jesus.*charger (platter, dish)
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 6
But when a convenient day was come: Herode on his birthday made a supper to the lords, captains, and chief estates of Galile. And the daughter of the said Herodias came in and danced, and pleased Herode and them that sat at board also. Then the king said unto the maiden: ask of me what thou wilt, and I will give it thee. And he sware unto her, whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, even unto the one half of my kingdom. And she went forth and said to her mother: what shall I ask? And she said: John Baptists head. And she came in straight way with haste unto the king, and asked saying: I will: that thou give me by and by in a *charger the head of John Baptist. And the king was sorry: how be it for his oaths sake, and for their sakes which sat at supper also, he would not put her beside her purpose. And immediately the king sent the hangman and commanded his head to be brought in. And he went and beheaded him in the prison and brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the maiden and the maiden gave it to her mother. And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his body, and put it in a tomb

Yet more of prophesy of the end days ...
DANIEL Chpt 12
The time will come also, that the great prince Michael, which standeth on thy people side, shall arise up, for there shall come a time of trouble, such as never was, since there began to be any people, unto that same time. Then shall thy people be delivered, yee all those that be found written in the book. Many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth, shall awake, some to everlasting life, some to perpetual shame and reproof. The wise ( such as have taught other ) shall glister, as the shining of heaven: and those that have instruct the multitude unto Godliness, shall be as the stars, world without end.
And thou O Daniel, shut up these words, and seal the book to the last time. Many shall go about here and there, and then shall knowledge increase. So I Daniel looked, and behold, there stood other two: one upon this shore of the water, the other upon yonder side. And one of them said unto him, which was clothed in linen, and stood above upon the waters of the flood, How long shall it be to the end of these wonderous works?
Then I heard the man with the linen clothes, which stood above upon the waters of the flood: when he held up his right and left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever: that it shall tarry for a time, two times and half a time: when the power of the holy people is clean scattered abroad, then shall this things be fulfilled.
I heard it well, but I understood it not. Then said I : O my Lord, what shall happen after that ? He answered: Go thy way Daniel, for the words shall be closed up and sealed, till the last time: and many shall be purified, cleansed and tried. But the ungodly shall live wickedly, and those wicked ( as many as they be ) shall have no understanding. As for such as have understanding, they shall regard it. And from that time forth that the daily offering shall be put down and the abominable desolation set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. O well is him, that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and thirty five days. Go thou thy way now, till it be ended: take thy rest, and bide in thy lot, till the days have an end
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.*Jesu: Hebrew for Jesus. *lucres: shameful gain
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
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 12
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. And she was with child and cried travailing in birth, and pained ready to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven, for behold a great red dragon having seven heads, and ten horns and crowns upon his heads: and his tail drew the third part of the stars, and cast them to the earth.
And the dragon stood before the woman, which was ready to be delivered: for to devour her child as soon as it were born. And she brought forth a man child, which should rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her son was taken up unto God, and to his seat. And the woman fled into wilderness, where she had a place, prepared of God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
And there was a great battle in heaven, Michael and his Angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his Angels, and prevailed not: neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon, that old serpent called the devil and Satan was cast out. Which deceiveth all the world. And he was cast into the earth, and his angels were cast out also.
And I heard a loud voice saying: in heaven is now made salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ. For he is cast down which accused them before God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth, and of the sea: for the devil is come down unto you which hath great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
And when the dragon saw, that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, times, and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And the dragon cast out of his mouth water after the woman as it had been a river, because she should have been caught of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed, up the river, which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman: and went and made war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. And I stood on the sea *stonde
*stonde: two possible words come from the Middle English: stound: meaning "a short time" and stonen: meaning "stunned". stunned because of the vision.
