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 and shown a people and peoples ...
and a one people was helping one another in all things ...
even in spirit and truth for the love of God and Jesus...
even in the flesh feeding one another ...
and i was shown another people ...feeding on each other ...
and that to see what they could get from one another ...
even of their flesh ...
and they were never satisfied of consuming one another ...
and one over another ...above the other ...more than the other ...
and they were always in glory of robbing each other ...
and had special pride if they could set up extortions ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE PROVERBS Chpt 30
The words of Agur the son of Jakeh
*The prophecy of a true and faithful man, whom God hath helped, whom God had comforted and nourished.
For though I a least of all, and have no mans understanding ( for I never learned wisdom) yet have I understanding, and am well informed in Godly things. Who hath climbed up into heaven? Who hath come down from thence? Who hath holden the wind fast in his hands? Who hath comprehended the waters in a garment? Who hath set all the ends of the world? What is his name, or what is his sons name? Canest thou tell? All the words of God are pure and clean, for he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Put thou nothing unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
Two things I require of thee, that thou will not deny me before I die. Remove from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches, only grant me a necessary living. Lest I be so full, I deny thee, and say: What fellow is the Lord? And lest I being constrained through poverty, fall unto stealing, and foreswear the name of my God. Accuse not a servant unto his master, lest he speak evil of thee also, and thou be hurt. He that bringeth up an evil report upon the generation of his father and mother, is not worthy to be commended.
The generation that think themselves clean, shall not be cleansed from their filthiness. There are people that have a proud look, and cast up their eyelids. This peoples teeth are swords, and their chaft bones they consume and devour the simple of the earth, and the poor from among men.
This generation which is like an horseleach, hath two daughters: the one is called fetch hither, and the other bring hither.
There are three things that are never satisfied, and the fourth sayeth never hoo. The hell, a womans womb, and the earth hath never water enough. As for fire, it sayeth never, *hoo. Whoso laugheth his father to scorn, and setteth his mothers commandment to naught: the ravens pick out his eyes in the valley, and devoured be he of the young eagles.
There be three things too high for me, and as for the fourth, it passeth my knowledge. The way of an eagle in the air, the way of a serpent over a stone, the way of a ship in sea, and the way of a man with a young woman. Such is the way of an wife that breaketh wedlock, which wipeth her mouth like as when she hath eaten, and saith. As for me, I have done no harm. Through three things the earth is disquieted, and the fourth may it not bear: Through a servant that beareth rule, through a fool that hath great riches, through an idle housewife, and through an handmaiden that is heir to her mistress.
There be four things in the earth, the which are very little: but in wisdom they exceed the wise. The *Emmettes are but a weak people, yet gather they their meat in the harvest. The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their couches among the rocks. The grasshoppers have not a guide, yet go they forth together by heaps. The spider laboreth with her hands, and that in the Kings palace.
There be three things that go stiffly, but the going of the fourth is the godliest of all. A Lion which is King of beasts, and giveth place to no man: A cock ready to fight: A ram and a King that goeth forth with his people. If thou be so foolish to imagine thyself, or meddlest with any such thing, then lay thine hand upon thy mouth. Who so churneth milk, maketh butter: he that rubbeth his nose, maketh it bleed: and he that causeth wrath, bringeth forth strife

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
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.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 19
And I saw an Angel *stand in the sun, and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly by the midst of heaven, come and gather your selves to gether unto the supper of the great God that ye may eat the flesh of kings, and of high captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all free men and bond men, and of small and great. And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth, and their warriors gathered to gether to make battle against him that sat on the horse and against his soldiers.
And the beast was taken and with him that false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that received the beasts mark, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast into a pond of fire burning with brimstone: and the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth, and all the fowls were full filled with their flesh
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 6
Verily, verily I say unto you, he that believeth on me, hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat Manna in the wilderness and are dead? This is that bread which cometh from heaven that he which eateth of it, should also not die. I am that living bread which came down from heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever. And the bread that I will give, is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
And the Jewes strove among themselves saying: How can this fellow give us his flesh to eat? Then Jesus said unto them: Verily, verily I say unto you, except ye eat the flesh of the son of man, and drink his blood, ye shall not have life in you. Whosoever eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life: and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me and I in him. As the living father hath sent me, even so live I by my father: and he that eateth me shall live by me. This is the bread which came from heaven: not as your fathers have eaten Manna and are dead. He that eateth of this bread, shall live ever.
These things said he in the synagogue as he taught in Capernaum. Many therefore of his disciples: when they had heard this, said: this is an hard saying: who can abide the hearing of it? Jesus knew in himself, that his disciples murmured at it, and said unto them: Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall see the son of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing. The words that I speak unto you, are spirit and life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning, which they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said: Therefore said I unto you: that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my father.
From that time many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus to the twelve: will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered: Master to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life, and we believe and know that thou art Christ the son of the living God. Jesus answered them: Have not I chosen you twelve, and yet one of you is the devil? He spake it of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon. For he it was that should betray him, and was one of the twelve
