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 within ...within a careless corporate factory ...
and it was din of rushing and raging and noisome pestilence ...
and i was shown two men ...
and one was the supervisor over the other ...
Yet the men seemed to have a friendly relationship ...
and the one thought the supervisor was his friend ...
even like a brother ...
Nevertheless the day came when the man went out of his way ...the way ...to do good ...to impress his supervisor ...
Nevertheless when the supervisor saw it ...he had the works destroyed ...
and the man who thought the supervisor was his friend ...even like a brother ...was sore vexed ...
and the brought the measure of matters up the ...his supervisor ...
Yet the more the supervisor ...cast the the measure of matters aside ...
and was care less what the worker thought ...or imagined ...or fantasized ...
and i was shown the place where employees badge in ...
and the badge was missing ...of the one who ...thought ...or imagined ...or fantasized ...friendship ...even brotherhood ...with his supervisor.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE PROVERBS Chpt 24
My son, fear thou the Lord and the king, and keep no company with the *sclaunderous: For their destruction shall come suddenly, and who knoweth the fall of them both?
These are also the sayings of the wise.
It is not good to have respect of any person in judgment.
He that saith unto the ungodly: Thou art righteous, him shall the people curse, yee and the *comentie shall abhor him.
But they that rebuke the ungodly shall be commended, and a rich blessing shall come upon them.
He maketh himself to be well loved, that giveth a good answer.
First make up thy work that is without, and look well unto that which thou hast in the field, and then build own house.
THE PROVERBS Chpt 28
A faithful man is to be greatly to be commended, but he that maketh to much haste to be rich, shall not be unguilty.
To have respect of persons in judgement is not good: And why? he will do wrong, yee even for a piece of bread.
He that will be rich all to soon, hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
He that rebuketh a man, shall find no favor at the last, than he that flattereth him.
TO THE EPHESIANS Chpt 6
Children obey your fathers and mothers in the Lord: for so is it right. Honour thy father and mother, that is the first commandment that hath any promise, that thou mayst be in good estate, and live long on the earth. And ye fathers move not your children to wrath: but bring them up with the nurture and information of the Lord. Servants be obedient unto your carnal masters, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your hearts, as unto Christ: not with service in the eye sight, as men pleasers: but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart with good will serving the Lord, and not men. And remember that whatsoever good thing any man doeth that shall he receive again of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. And ye masters, do even the same things unto them, putting away threatenings: and remember that even your master also is in heaven, neither is there any respect of person with him.
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.
But that ye may also know that condition I am in and what I do, Tichicus my dear brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall show you of all things, whom I sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know what case I stand in, and that he might comfort your hearts.
Peace be with the brethren, and love with faith, from God the father and from the Lord Jesu Christ. Grace be with all them which love our Lord Jesus Christ in pureness. Amen
TO THE COLLOSSIANS Chpt 3
If ye be then risen again with Christ seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things that are above, and not on things which are on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ which is our life, shall show himself, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.*concupiscence: strong desire; lust of the flesh, lust of the eye, pride of goods.
Mortify therefore your members which are on the earth, fornication, uncleanness, unnatural lust, evil *concupiscence, and covetousness which is worshipping of idols: for which things sakes the wrath of God cometh on the children of unbelief. In which things ye walked once, when ye lived in them.
But now put ye also away from you all things: wrath, fierceness, maliciousness, cursed speaking, filthy speaking out of your mouths. Lie not one to another that the old man with his works be put off, and the new put on, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that made him, where is neither Gentile nor Jewe, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarous or Scythian, bond or free: but Christ is all in all things.
Now therefore as elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercy, kindness, humbleness of minds, meekness, long suffering, forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel to another: even as Christ forgave you, even so do ye. Above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfectness. And the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which peace ye are called in one body. And see that ye be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you plenteously in all wisdom. Teach and exhort your own selves, in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs which have favour with them, singing in your hearts to the Lord. And all things (whatsoever ye do in word or deed) do in the name of the Lord Jesu, giving thanks to God the father by him.
Wives, submit your own selves unto your own husbands, as it is comely in the Lord. Husbands love your wives and be not bitter unto them. Children obey your fathers and mothers in all things, for that is well pleasing unto the Lord. Fathers rate not your children, lest they be of a desperate mind. Servants be obedient unto your bodily masters in all things: not with eye service as men pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing God. And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as though ye did it to the Lord, and not unto men, for as much as ye know that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of inheritance, for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doth wrong shall receive for the wrong that he hath done: for there is no respect of persons with God. Ye masters do unto your servants that which is just and equal, seeing ye know that ye also have a master in heaven
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 1
Peter an Apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that dwell here and there as strangers throughout Pontus, Galacia, Capadocia, Asia, and Bethynia, elect by the foreknowledge of God the father through the sanctifying of the spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ.
Grace be with you and peace be multiplied.
Blessed be God the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which through his abundant mercy begat us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from death, to enjoy an inheritance immortal and undefiled, and that perisheth not, reserved in heaven for you, which are kept by the power of God through faith, unto salvation, which salvation is prepared all ready to be showed in the last time, in the which time ye shall rejoice, though now for a season (if need require) ye are in heaviness, through many fold temptations, that your faith once tried, being much more precious than gold that perisheth (though it be tried with fire) might be found unto *laud, glory, and honour, at the appearing of Jesus Christ: whom ye have not seen and yet love him, in whom even now, though ye see him not, ye yet believe: and rejoice with joy unspeakable and glorious: receiving the end of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
Of which salvation have the Prophets enquired and searched, which prophesied of the grace that should come unto you, searching when or at what time the spirit of Christ which was in them, should signify, which spirit testified before, the passions that should come unto Christ, and the glory that should follow after: unto which Prophets it was declared that not unto themselves, but unto us, they should minister the things which are now showed unto you of them which by the holy ghost sent down from heaven have preached unto you the things which the angels desire to behold.
Wherefore gird up the loins of your minds, be sober, and trust perfectly on the grace that is brought unto you, by the declaring of Jesus Christ, as obedient children, not fashioning yourselves unto your old lusts of ignorance: but as he which called you is holy even so be ye holy in all manner of conversation, because it is written. Be ye holy, for I am holy.
And if so be that ye call on the father which without respect of person judgeth according to every mans works, see that ye pass the time of your pilgrimage in fear. For as much as ye know how that ye were not redeemed with corruptible silver and gold from your vain conversation which ye received by the traditions of the fathers: but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb undefiled, and without spot, which was ordained before the world was made: but was declared in the last times for your sakes, which by his means have believed on God that raised him from death, and glorified him, that your faith and hope might be in God.
And for as much as ye have purified your souls through the spirit, in obeying the truth for to love brotherly without *feigning, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: for ye are born a new, not of mortal seed, but of immortal, by the word of God which liveth and lasteth for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man is as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower falleth away, but the word of the Lord endureth ever. And this is the word which by the Gospell was preached among you
*laud (praise, worship), *feigning (pretending)
THE EPISTLE OF ST. JAMES Chpt 2
Brethren have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ the Lord of glory in respect of persons. If there come into your company a man with a golden ring and in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment, and ye have a respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him. Sit thou here in a good place: and say unto the poor, stand thou there or sit here under my footstool: are ye not partial in yourselves, and have judged after evil thoughts?
Hearken my dear beloved brethren. Hath not God chosen the poor of this world, which are rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he promised to them that love him? But ye have despised the poor. Are not the rich they which oppress you, and they which draw you before judges? Do not they speak evil of that good name after which ye be named?
If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture which saith: Thou shalt love thine neighbour as thyself, ye do well. But if ye regard one person more than another, ye commit sin, and are rebuked of the law, as transgressors. Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet fail in one point, he is guilty in all. For he that said. Thou shalt not commit **adultery, said also: thou shalt not kill. Though thou do none *adultery yet if thou kill, thou art a transgressor of the law. So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty. For there shall be judgement merciless to him that showeth no mercy, and mercy rejoiceth against judgement.
What availeth it my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, when he hath no deeds? Can faith save him? If a brother or a sister be naked or destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them: Depart in peace, God send you warmness and food: not withstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body: what helpeth it them? Even so faith, if it have no deeds, is dead in itself.
Ye and a man might say: Thou hast faith, and I have deeds: Show me thy faith by thy deeds: and I will show thee my faith by my deeds. Believest thou that there is one God? Thou doest well. The devils also believe and tremble.
Wilt thou understand O thou vain man that faith without deeds is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified through works when he offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Thou seest how that faith wrought with his deeds, and through the deeds was the faith made perfect: and the scripture was fulfilled which saith: Abraham believed God, and it was reputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the friend of God. Ye see then how that of deeds a man is justified, and not of faith only. Likewise also was not Raab the harlot justified through works, when she received the messengers, and sent them out another way? For as the body, without the spirit is dead, even so faith without deeds is dead
