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 a man and his daughter...
andthe man loved God his father and Jesus his brother and Lord.
and that in spirit and truth.
and the man loved his daughter.
and the man looked at the vile wretchedness of the world of the worldly.
and the deadly darkness of the heathenish unGodlyHell that was rising ...
and the loving father ...bid his daughter to submit to his guidance in and of the world ...
and the daughter did submit to her ...fathers will ...
and her father was as her head over her ...
and the worldly women were horrified ...
and totally disgusted that any woman would be subject to any man ...
and they accused the father ...that he was treating his daughter horribly ...
even as though she was on a short leash ...
evenso the father ...and daughter walked together lovingly ...in the light of the son.
and paid no attention to the ways and means or unGodly gossip of the heathenish women of the world of the worldly ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 7
In the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple and taught. And the Jewes marvelled saying: How knoweth he the scriptures, seeing that he never learned? Jesus answered them, and said: My doctrine is not mine: but his that sent me: If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. He that speaketh of himself, seeketh his own praise. But he that seeketh his praise that sent him, the same is true and no unrighteousness is in him.
THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 11
I commend you brethren that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances even as I delivered them to you. I would ye knew that Christ is the head of every man. And the man is the womans head. And God is Christs head. Every man praying or prophesying having any thing on his head, shameth his head. Every woman that prayeth or prophesieth bare headed, dishonesteth her head. For it is even all one, and the very same thing, even as though she were shaven. If the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn. If it be shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her cover her head.
A man ought not to cover his head, for as much as he is the image and glory of God. The woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the womans sake: but the woman for the mans sake. For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head, for the angels sakes. Nevertheless, neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man in the Lord. For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man by the woman: but all is of God.
TO THE EPHESIANS Chpt 4
I therefore which am in bonds for the Lords sake, exhort you, that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, in all humbleness of mind, and meekness, and long suffering, forbearing one another through love, and that ye be diligent to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace, being one body, and one spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling. Let there be but one Lord, one faith, one baptism: one God and father of all, which is above all through all, and in you all.
Unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith: He is gone up on high, and hath led captivity captive, and hath given gifts unto men. That he ascended: what meaneth it, but that he also descended first into the lowest parts of the earth? He that descended, is even the same also that ascended up, even above all heavens, to fulfil all things.
And the very same made some Apostles, some Prophets, some Evangelists, some Shepherds, some Teachers: that the saints might have all things necessary to work and minister with all, to the edifying of the body of Christ, till we every one (in the unity of faith, and knowledge of the son of God) grow up unto a perfect man, after the measure of age of the fullness of Christ. That we henceforth be no more children, wavering and carried with every wind of doctrine, by the *wiliness of men and craftiness, whereby they lay wait for us to deceive us. But let us follow the truth in love, and in all things grow in him which is the head, that is to say Christ, in whom all the body is coupled and knit together in every joint wherewith one ministereth to another (according to the operation as every part hath his measure) and increaseth the body, unto the edifying of itself in love.
This I say therefore and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in vanity of their mind, blinded in their understanding, being strangers from the life which is in God through the ignorancy that is in them, because of the blindness of their hearts, which being past repentance, have given themselves unto wantonness, to work all manner of uncleanness, even with greediness. But ye have not so learned Christ, if so be ye have heard of him and are taught in him, even as the truth is in Jesu. So then as concerning the conversation in time past, lay from you that old man, which is corrupt through the deceivable lusts, and be ye renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on that new man, which after the image of God is shapen in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore put away lying, and speak every man truth unto his neighbor, for as much as we are members one of another.
Be angry but sin not: let not the *son go down upon your wrath, neither give place unto the backbiter. Let him that stole, steal no more, but let him rather labour with his hands some good thing, that he may have to give unto him that needeth.
Let no filthy communication proceed out of your mouths: but that which is good to edify with all, when need is: that it may have favour with the hearers. And grieve not the holy spirit of God, by whom ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, fierceness and wrath, roaring and cursed speaking, be put away from you, with all maliciousness. Be ye courteous one to another, and merciful, forgiving one another, even as God for Christs sake forgave you
*wiliness (deception) *son go down upon your wrath:exactly as recorded.
TO THE EPHESIANS Chpt 5
Women submit your selves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the wifes head even as Christ is the head of the congregation, and the same is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the congregation is in subjection to Christ, likewise let the wives be in subjection to their husbands in all things. Husbands love your wives even as Christ loved the congregation, and gave himself for it, to sanctify it, and cleansed it in the fountain of water through the word, to make it unto himself, a glorious congregation without spot or wrinkle, or any such thing: but that it should be holy and without blame. So ought men to love their wives, as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife, loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh: but nourisheth and cherisheth it even as the Lord doth the congregation. For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall continue with his wife, and two shall be made one flesh. This is a great secret, but I speak between Christ and the congregation. Nevertheless do ye so that every one of you love his wife truly even as himself. And let the wife see that she fear her husband
*comely (worthy) *circumspectly (full of care in all things)
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 7
These are the words that God spake unto Jeremie: Stand under the gates of the Lords house, and cry out these words there, with a loud voice, and say: Hear the word of the Lord all ye of Judah, that go in this door, to honor the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel. Amend your ways and your counsels, and I will let you dwell in this place. Trust not in the false lying words, saying: here is the temple of the Lord, here is the temple of the Lord, here is the temple of the Lord.
For if ye amend your ways and your counsels, if ye will judge right between a man and his neighbor: If ye will not oppress the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow: if ye will not shed innocent blood in this place: if ye will not cleave to strange gods to your own destruction: then will I let you dwell in this place, yee in the land that I gave afore time unto your fathers forever. But take heed, yee trust in counsels, that beguile you and do you no good. For when ye have stolen, murdered, committed *advoutry, and *penury: When ye have offered unto Baal, following strange and unknown gods: Then come ye, and stand before me in this house, which hath my name given unto it, and say: Tush, we are absolved quiet, through we have done all these abominations.
What? Think you this house that beareth my name, is a den of thieves? And these things are not done privately, but before mine eyes, sayeth the Lord. Go to my place in *Siloh, where unto I gave my name afore time, and look well what I did to the same place for the wickedness of my people of Israel. And now, though ye have done all these deeds ( sayeth the Lord ) and I myself rose up ever by times to warn you and to commune with you, yet would ye not hear me: I called, ye would not answer. And therefore even as I have done to Siloh, so will I do to this house, that my name is given unto ( and that ye put your trust in ) ye unto the place that I have given to you and your fathers. And I shall thrust you out of my sight, as I have cast out all your brethren the whole seed of Ephraim.
Therefore thou shalt not pray for this people, thou shalt neither give thanks, nor bid prayer for them : thou shalt make no intercession to me for them for in no wise will I hear thee. Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Juda, and without Jerusalem? The children gather sticks, the fathers kindle fire, the mothers knead the dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven.
They pour out drink offerings unto strange gods, to provoke me to wrath: How be it they hurt not me ( saith the Lord ) but rather confound, and shame themselves.
And therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold, my wrath and my indignation shall be poured out upon this place, upon men and cattle upon the trees in the field and upon and all the fruit of the land, and it shall burn so, that no man may quench it.
Thus saith the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel: Yee heap up your burnt offerings with your sacrifices, and eat flesh. But when I brought your fathers out of Egypt, I spake no word unto them of burntofferings and sacrifices: but this I commanded them, saying: hearken and obey my voice, and I shall be your God, and ye shall be my people: so that ye walk in all the ways, which I have commanded you, that ye may prosper.
But they were not obedient, they inclined not their ears there unto, but went after their own imaginations and after the motions of their own wicked heart, and so turned themselves away, and converted not unto me. And this have they done, from the time that your fathers came out of Egypt, unto this day.
Nevertheless, I sent unto them my servants all the prophets: I rose up early and sent them word, yet would they not hearken, ner offer me their ears, but were obstinate and worse than their fathers. And thou shalt now speak all these words unto them, but they shall not hear thee: thou shalt cry upon them, but they shall not answer thee. Therefore shalt thou say unto them: this is the people, that neither heareth the voice of the Lord their God, nor receiveth his correction. Faithfulness and truth is clean rooted out of their mouth.
Wherefor cut off thine hair, and cast it away, take up a complaint in the whole land for the Lord shall cast away, and scatter the people, that he is displeased withal. For the children of Judah have done evil in my sight, saith the Lord. They have set up their abominations, in the house that hath my name, and have defiled it. They have also builded an altar at Topheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hennom: that they might burn their sons and their daughters, which I never commanded them, neither came it ever to my thought. And therefore behold, the days shall come ( saith the Lord ) that it shall no more be called Topheth, or the valley of the children of Hennom, but the valley of the slain, for in Topheth, they shall be buried, because they shall else have no room. Yee the dead bodies of this people shall be eaten up of the fowls of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, and no man shall fraie (scare) them away. And as for the voice of mirth and gladness of the cities of Judah, and Jerusalem the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride: I will make them cease, for the land shall be desolate
*penury (to cause poverty)
*advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God, caused others to be devoted to something other than the living God. see James 2 for adultery.
*Shiloh = "place of rest"
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 44
This is the word that was showed to Jeremy concerning all the Jews, which dwell in Egypt: which dwell at Magdal, at Thaphnis, at Memphis, and in the land of Patures. Thus sayeth the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel: Ye have seen all the misery that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah: so that this day they are desolate, and no man dwelling therein: and that because of the great blasphemes, which they committed, to provoke me unto anger: In that they went back to do sacrifice, and worship unto strange gods: whom neither they, ner ye, ner your fathers have known. How be it, I sent unto them my servants all the prophets: I rose up early, I sent unto them, and gave them warning: O do no such abominable things, and things that I hate. But they would not follow ner hearken, to turn from their wickedness, and to do no more sacrifice unto strange gods.
Wherefore mine indignation and wrath was kindled, and it burnt up the cities of Judah, the fields with the streets of Jerusalem, so that they were made waste and desolate, as it is come to pass this day. Now therefore thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel: How happeneth it, that ye do so great evil unto your own souls, thus to destroy the men and woman, children and babes of Judah? so that none of you is left, because ye provoke me unto wrath with the works of your own hands: when ye offer unto strange gods in the land of Egypt where as ye be gone to dwell: That ye might utterly perish, and that ye might be reviled and shamefully entreated of all nations. Or have ye now forgotten the wickedness of your forefathers, the wickedness of the Kings of Judah and their wives, the wickedness that ye yourselves and your wives have done in the land of Judah, in the city and land of Jerusalem?
Yet are ye not sorry this day, ye fear not neither walk in my law and my commandments, that I have given unto you and your forefathers.
Therefore thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel: I am steadfastly advised and determined, to punish you, and to root out all Judah. As for the remnant of Judah that purposely went into Egypt, there to ease them of their misery: I will take them and they shall all be destroyed. In the land of Egypt shall they perish being consumed with the sword and with hunger. For from the least unto the most , they shall perish with the sword and with hunger. More over they will be reviled, abhorred, shamed and confounded. For I visit them that dwell in Egypt, as I have visited Jerusalem: with the sword, with hunger and with pestilence: So that none of the remnant of Judah, which are gone to dwell in Egypt shall be left to come again into the land of Judah all though they think to come thither again, and to dwell there. For none shall come again, but such as are fled away.
Then all the men which knew that their wives had offered unto strange gods, and a great sort of wives that stood there, yee and all the people that dwelt there in Egypt in the city of Patures, answered Jeremy, and said: As for the words that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the Lord, we will in no wise hear them: But whatsoever goeth forth out of our own mouth, that will we do: We will do sacrifice, and offer oblations unto the queen of heaven: like as we and our forefathers, our Kings and our heads have done in the cities of Judah, and in the streets and fields of Jerusalem. For then had we plenteousness of victuals, then were we in prosperity, and no misfortune came upon us.
But since we left, to offer, and to do sacrifice unto the queen of heaven, we have had scarceness of all things, and perish with the sword and hunger. Last of all, when we women did sacrifice and offered unto the queen of heaven, did we make her cakes and pour unto her drink offerings, to do her service, without our husbands wills?
Then said Jeremy unto all the people, to the men, to the women, and to all the folk, which had given him that answer: Did not the Lord remember the sacrifices that ye, your forefathers, your kings and rulers ( with all the people ) have offered in the cities of Judah, in the streets and land of Jerusalem? and hath he not considered this in his mind? In so much, that the Lord might no longer suffer the wickedness of your intentions, and the abominable things which he did? Is not your land desolate and void, yee and abhorred, so that no man dwelleth therin any more, as it is come to pass this day?
Did not all this happen to you, because ye made such sacrifice, and sinned against the Lord? Ye have not followed his voice, to walk in his law, in his ordinances and statutes.
Yee this is the cause, that all misfortune happened unto you, as it is come to pass this day. Moreover, Jeremy spake unto all the people and to all the women: Hear the word of the Lord all Judah, ye that be in the land of Egypt: Thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel: Ye and your wives have both spoken with your own mouth, the thing that ye have fulfilled in deed:
Yee thus have ye said: We will not fail, but do the thing that pleaseth us: we will do sacrifice and pour out drink offerings to the queen of heaven. Purposely have ye set up your own good meanings, and hastily have ye fulfilled your own intent. And therefore, hear the word of the Lord all Judah, ye that dwell in the land of Egypt.
Behold, I have sworn by my great name, saith the Lord, that my name shall not be rehearsed through any mans mouth of Juda, in all the land of Egypt: to say: The Lord God liveth, for I will watch, to plague them, and not for their wealth. And all the men of Judah that be in the land of Egypt, shall perish with the sword and with hunger, until they be utterly destroyed.
Nevertheless, those that fled away for the sword, shall come again into the land of Judah, but there shall be very few of them. And all the remnant of Judah, that are gone into Egypt, there to dwell, shall know whose words shall be found true: theirs or mine. Take this for a token, that I will visit you in this place, sayeth the Lord, and that ye may know, how that I ( without doubt ) will perform my purpose upon you to punish you. Behold, saith the Lord, I will deliver Pharao Hophrea King of Egypt into the hands of his enemies, that seek his life: even as I gave Zedekiah King of Judah into the hands of Nabuchodonosor King of Babylon, which sought after his life
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.
