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 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 a people and peoples ...
and they were as though dead ...though walking ...
and a man appeared.
and the appearing man breathed on the dead though walking ...
and the dead though walking ...became as though living ...
and walked in life and living.
and in spirit and truth.
and not in death and destruction.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 9
And he said unto another: follow me. And the same said: Lord suffer me first to go and bury my father. Jesus said unto him. Let the dead, bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 57
But in the mean season the righteous perisheth, and no man regardeth it in his heart, Good godly people are taken away, and no man considereth it. Namely: that the righteous is conveyed away through the wicked: that he himself might be at rest, lie quietly upon his bed, and live after his own pleasure. Come hither therefore ye charmers children, ye sons of *adouvtry, and the whore: Wherein take ye your pleasure? Upon whom gape ye with your mouth, and bleat out your tongue? Are ye not children of *advoutry, and the seed of *dissimilation? Ye take your pleasure under the oaks, and under all green trees, the child being slain in the valleys, and the dens of stone. Thy part shall be with the stoney rocks by the river: Yee even these shall be thy part. For there thou hast poured meat and drink offerings unto them. Should I *oversee that? Thou hast made thy bed upon high mountains, thou wentest up thither, and there hast thou slain sacrifices. Behind the doors and posts, hast thou set up thy remembrance. When thou hast discovered thyself to another then me, when thou wentest down and made thy bed wider ( that is ) when thou didest carve the certain yonder Idols, and lovest their couches, where thou sawest them. Thou wentest straight to kings with oil and diverse ointments (that is ) thou hast sent thy messengers far off, and yet are thou fallen into the pit thereby. Thou hast had trouble for the multitude of thine own ways, yet saidest thou never: I will leave off. Thou thinkest to have life ( or health ) of thy self, and therefore thou believest not that thou art sick. For when wilt thou be abashed or fear, seeing thou hast broken thy promise, and rememberest me not, neither hast me in thy heart? Thinkest thou, that I also will hold my peace ( as afore time ) that thou fearest me not? Yee verily I will declare thy goodness and thy works but they shall not profit thee when thou cryest, let thy chosen heap deliver thee. But the wind shall take them all away, and carry them in to the air. Nevertheless, they that put their trust in me, shall inherit the land, and have my holy hill in possession.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 23
Woe be to you Scribes and Pharisees hypocrites, for ye are like unto painted tombs which appear beautiful outward: but are within full of dead bones and of all filthiness. So are ye, for outward ye appear righteous unto men, when within, ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Woe be unto you Scribes and Pharisees hypocrites: ye build the tombs of the Prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, and say: If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partners with them in the blood of the Prophets. So then ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the Prophets. Fulfil ye likewise the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents and generation of vipers, how should ye scape the damnation of hell?
Wherefore, behold I send unto you, prophets, wise men and scribes, and of them ye shall kill and crucify: and of them ye shall scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city, that upon you may come all the righteous blood that was shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel, unto the blood of Zacharias the son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, all these things shall light upon this generation. Jerusalem, Jerusalem which killest Prophets, and stonest them which are sent to thee: how often would I have gathered thy children together, as the hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, but ye would not: Behold your habitation shall be left unto you desolate. For I say to you, ye shall not see me henceforth, till that ye say: blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 4
For as much as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he which suffereth in the flesh, ceaseth from sin, that he hence forward should live as much time as remaineth in the flesh: not after the lusts of men, but after the will of God. For it is sufficient for us that we have spent the time that is past of the life, after the will of the gentiles, walking in wantonness, lusts, drunkenness, in eating, drinking and in abominable idolatry.
And it seemeth to them a strange thing that ye run not also with them unto the same excess of riot, and therefore speak they evil of you, which shall give *accompts to him that is ready to judge quick and dead. For unto this purpose verily was the gospel preached unto the dead that they should be judged like other men in the flesh, but should live before God in the spirit. The end of all things is at hand.
THE PSALMS Chpt 91
Who so dwelleth under the defense of the most highest, and abideth under the shadow of the Almighty.
He shall say unto the Lord: O' my hope, and my stronghold, my God, in whom I will I trust. For he shall deliver thee from the snare of the hunter, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee under his wings, that thou mayest be safe under his feathers: his faithfulness and his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
So that thou shalt not need to be afraid for any bugs by night, ner for the arrow that flieth by day. For the pestilence that creepeth in the darkness, ner the sickness that destroyeth in the noonday.
A thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy right hand, but it shall not come nye thee.
Yee with thine eyes shalt thou behold, and see the reward of the ungodly.
For thou Lord art my hope, thou hast set thine house of defense very high.
There shall no evil happen unto thee, neither shall any plague come nye thy dwelling.
For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee in their hands, that thou hurt not thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt go upon the Lion and Adder, the young Lion and the Dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet.
Because he hath set his love upon me, I shall deliver him: I shall defend him, for he hath known my name.
When he calleth upon me, I shall hear him: Yee I am with him in his trouble, whereout I will deliver him, and bring him to honor.
With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 5
Woe be unto them that call evil good, and good evil: which make darkness light, and light darkness, that make sour sweet, and sweet sour.
Woe be unto them that are wise in their own sight, and think themselves to have understanding.
Woe be unto them that are conning men to sup out wine and expert to set up drunkenness. These give sentence with the ungodly for rewards, but condemn the just cause of the righteous.
Therefore like as the fire licketh up the straw, as the flame consumeth the stubble: Even so ( when their root is full ) their blossom shall vanish away as dust or smoke: for they despise the law of the Lord of Hosts, and blaspheme the word of the holy maker of Israel.
Therefore is the wrath of the Lord kindled also against his people, and he shaketh his hand at them: yee he shall smite so, that the hills shall tremble. And their carcasses shall lie in the open streets, like mire. After all this, the wrath of God shall not cease, but he shall stretch his hand wider. And he shall give a token unto a strange people, and call unto them in a far country: and behold, they shall come hastily with speed. There is not one faint or feeble among them, no not a sluggish or slippery person. There shall not one of them put off the girdle from his loins, *ner loose the latchet of their shoe. Their arrows are sharp, and their bows bent. Their horses hoofs are like flint, and their cart wheels like a stormy wind. Their cry is as it were of a lion, and the roaring of them like lions whelps. They shall roar, and haunch up the prey, and no man shall recover it or get it from them. In that day they shall be fierce upon them, as the sea. And if we look unto the land, behold, it shall be all darkness and sorrow. If we look to heaven: behold, it shall be dark with careful desperation
THE SECOND TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 3
This understand, that in the last days shall come parlous times. For the men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, cursed speakers, disobedient to father and mother, unthankful, unholy, unkind, trucebreakers, stubborn, false accusers, rioters, fierce despisers of them which are good, traitors, heady, high minded, greedy upon voluptuousness more then lovers of God, having a similitude of Godly living, but have denied the power thereof: and such abhor. Of this sort are they which enter into houses, and bring into bondage women laden with sin, which women are led of *diverse lusts, ever learning and never able to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
THE PROVERBS Chpt 17
The Lord hateth as well him that justifieth the ungodly, as him that condemeth the innocent.
SAI or ISAIAH Chpt 1
Your land lieth waste, your cities are burnt up, your enemies devour your land, and you must be *faine to stand, and look upon it: and it is desolate, as it were with enemies in battle. Moreover the daughter of Zion is left alone like a cottage in a vineyard, like watch house in time of war, like a besieged city. And except the Lord of Hosts had left unto us a few alive: we should have been as sodoma, and like unto Gomorra.
Hear the word of the Lord ye tyrants of sodoma: and hearken unto the law of our God, thou people of Gomorra. Why offer ye so many sacrifices unto me? I am discontent for the burntofferings of wethers, and with the fatness of fed beasts. I have no pleasure in the blood of bullocks, lambs, and goats. When ye appear before me, who requireth you to tread within my porches? Offer me no more oblations, for it is but lost labor. I abhor your incense. I may not away with your new moons, your Sabbaths and solemn days. Your fastings are also in vain. I hate your new holy days and fastings, even from my very heart. They make me weary, I can not abide them. Though ye hold out your hands, yet I turn my eyes from you. And though you make many prayers, yet I hear nothing at all, for your hands are full of blood.
Wash you, make you clean, put away your evil thoughts out of my sight, cease from doing evil and violence. Learn to do right, let the widows complaint come before you. Now go to ( sayeth the Lord ) we will walk together. Is it not so? Though your sins be as red as scarlet, shall they not be whiter than snow? And though they were like purple, shall they be not like white wool? Is it not so? If ye be loving and obedient, ye shall enjoy the best thing that groweth in the land. But if ye be obstinate and rebellious, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for thus the Lord hath promised with his own mouth.
How happeneth it then that the righteous city ( which was full of equity ) is become unfaithful as an whore? righteousness dwelt in it, but now murder. Thy silver is turned to dross, and thy wine mixed with water. Thy princes are traitors and companions of thieves. They love gifts altogether, and follow rewards. As for the fatherless, they help him not to his right, neither will they let the widows causes come before them. Therefore speaketh the Lord God of Hosts the mighty one of Israel: Ah, I must ease me of mine enemies, and avenge me upon them. And therefore shall I lay my hand upon thee, and burn out thy dross from the finest and purest, and put out all the lead, and set thy judges again as they were sometime, and thy Senators as they were from the beginning. Then shalt thou be called the righteousness city, the faithful city. But Sion shall be redeemed with equity, and her captivity with righteousness. For the transgressors and ungodly, and such as are become unfaithful unto the Lord, must altogether be utterly destroyed.
And except ye be ashamed of the oaks trees wherein ye have so delighted, and of the gardens that ye have chosen: Ye shall be as an oak whose leaves are fallen away, and as a garden that hath no moistness. And as for the glory of these things, it shall be turned to straw, and he that made them to a spark. And they shall both burn together, so that no man shall be able to quench them
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 23
I have seen also among the Prophets of Jerusalem foul **advoutry, and presumptuous lies. They take the most shameful men by the hand, flattering them, so that they can not return from their wickedness. All these with their citizens are unto me, as sodom, and as the inhabitors of Gomorre.
*advouters: 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
Here we see **advoutry is manifest with presumptuous (arrogant) lies
THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 5
Nevertheless, as concerning the tokens, mark this: Behold, the days shall come, that they which dwell upon the earth, shall be taken in a great number, and the way of the truth shall be hid, and the land shall be barren from faith: but iniquity will have the upper hand, like as thou have seen now, and as thou hast heard long ago. And the land that thou seest now to have rule, shall thou shortly see waste. But if God grant thee to live, thou shalt see after the third trumpet, that the sun shall suddenly shine again in the night, and the moon three times in the day, and blood shall drop out of wood, and the stone shall give his voice, and the people shall be unquiet: and even shall rule, whom they hope not that dwell upon the earth, and the fowls shall flight, and the *sodomitish sea shall cast out his fish, and make a noise in the night, which many shall not know, but they shall all hear the voice thereof.
There shall be a confusion also in many places, and the fire shall be often sent again, and the wild beasts shall go their way, and menstruous women shall bear monsters, and salt waters will be found in the sweat: one friend shall fight against another: then shall all wit and understanding be hid and put into their secret places, and shall be sought of many, and yet not be found: then shall unrighteousness and voluptuousness have the upper hand upon the earth. One land shall also ask another, and say: Is righteousness gone through thee? And it shall say: No, at the same time shall men hope, but nothing obtain: they shall labor but their wages shall not prosper.
To show thee such tokens I have leave, and if thou wilt pray again, and weep as now, and fast seven days, thou shalt hear yet greater things. Then I awaked, and a fearfulness went through all my body, and my mind was feeble and careful, so that I almost sounded withal. So the angel that was come to talk with me, held me, comforted me, and set me up upon my feet.
THE EPISTLE OF JUDAS Chpt 1
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.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 11
And the seventh angel blew, and there were made great voices in heaven, saying: the kingdoms of this world are our Lords and his Christs, and he shall reign for evermore. And the twenty four elders, which sit before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God saying: we give thee thanks Lord God almighty: which art and wast, and art to come, for thou hast received thy great might, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead that they should be judged and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the Prophets and Saints, and to them that fear thy name small and great and shouldest destroy them, which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple, the ark of his testament: and there followed lightnings, and voices, and thunderings and earthquake, and much hail.
FIRST BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 2
Thus was heaven and earth finished with all their apparel, and in the seventh day God ended his work which he had made, and rested in the seventh day from all his works which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it, for in it he rested from all his works which he had created and made.
These are the generations of heaven and earth when they were created, in the time when the Lord God created heaven and earth and all the shrubs of the field before they were in the earth. And all the herbs of the field before they sprang, for the Lord God had yet sent no rain upon the earth, neither was there yet any man to till the earth. But there arose a mist out of the ground, and watered all the face of the earth: Then the Lord God shaped man, even of the mould of the earth, and breathed into his face the breath of life. So man was made a living soul.
THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 3
In the third year of the fall of the city, I was at Babylon, and lay troubled upon my bed, and my thoughts came up over my heart: for I saw the desolation of Sion, and the plenteous wealth of them that dwelt at Babylon: and my spirit was sore moved, so that I began to speak fearful words to the most highest, and said: O' Lord, Lord, thou spakest at the beginning, when thou planted the earth ( and that thyself alone) and gavest commandment unto the people, and a body unto Adam, which was a creature of thy hands, and hast breathed in him the breath of life: and so he lived before thee, and thou leadest him into paradise, which garden of pleasure thy right hand had planted, or ever the earth was made. And unto him thou gavest the commandment to love thy ways, which he transgressed, and immediately thou appointedest death in him, and in his generations. Of him came nations, tribes, people and kindreds out of number. And every people walked after their own will, and did nice things before thee: and as for thy commandments, they despised them.
But in process of time thou broughtest the water flood, upon those that dwelt in the world, and destroyed them. And like as the death was in Adam, so was the water flood also in these. Nevertheless one of them thou leftest: namely Noe with his household, of whom came all righteous men. And it happened that when they that dwell upon the earth, began to multiply, and had gotten many children, and were a great people, they began to be more ungodly than the first.
Now when they all lived so wickedly before thee, thou chose thee a man from among them, whose name was Abraham. Him thou lovest, and unto him only thou showest thy will, and made an everlasting covenant with him, promising him, that thou wouldest never forsake his seed. And unto him thou gavest Isaac, unto Isaac also thou gavest Jacob and Esau. As for Jacob thou didest choose him, and put back Esau. And so Jacob became a great multitude.
And it happened that when thou leadest his feet out of Egypt, thou broughtest them up to the mount Sion, bowing down the heavens, setting fast the earth, moving the ground, making the depths to shake, and troubling the world: And thy glory went through four ports of fire, and earthquakes, and winds, and cold: that thou mayest give the law unto the seed of Jacob, and diligence unto the generation of Israel.
And yet tookest thou not away from them that wicked heart, that thy law might bring forth fruit in them. For the first Adam bear a wicked heart, transgressed, and was overcome, and so be all that were born of him. Thus remained weakness with the law in the heart of the people, with the wickedness of the root: so that the good departed away, and the evil abode still. So the times past and fled away, and the years were brought to an end. Then didest thou raise up a servant called David, whom thou commandest to build a city unto thy name, and to offer up incense and sacrifice unto thee therein. This was done now many years. Then the inhabitors of the city forsook thee, and in all things did even as Adam and all his generations had done: for they also had a wicked heart.
And so thou gavest the city over into the hands of thine enemies. Are they of Babylon then better and more righteous then thy people, that they shall therefore have the dominion of Sion: For when I came there, and saw their ungodliness, and so great wickedness, that it could not be numbered: yee when my soul saw so many evil doers ( in the thirty year) my heart failed me, for I saw, how thou sufferest them in such ungodliness, and spareth the wicked doers: but thy own people thou hast routed out, and preserved thine enemies, and this thou hast not showed me.
I cannot perceive how this happeneth. Do they of Babylon then better, then they of Sion: Or is there any other people, that knoweth thee, saving the people of Israel? Or what generation hath so believed thy covenants, as Jacob? And yet their reward appeareth not, and their labor hath no fruit. For I have gone here and there through the Heathen, and I see that they be rich and wealthy, and think not upon thy commandments. Weigh thou therefore our wickedness in the balance, and theirs also that dwell in the world, and so shall your name be no where found but in Israel. Or where is there a people upon earth, that has not sinned before thee? Or what people hath so kept thy commandments? Thou shalt find, that Israel by name hath kept thy precepts, but not the other people and the Heathen
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.
