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 ...in the UNGodly world of the worldly.
and the man was in like ...a pawn shop...of extortionists ...
and the man was borrowing money ...against his own goods ...
and the price of usury was as though theft ...
Nevertheless the greedily grinning extortionist smiled and said ...your business is our business ...
even as though a friend of his ...
and the extortionists son ...grinned greedily and made the more friendship with the man ...
even to the last generation ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE PSALMS Chpt 72
Give the king thy judgments, O' God, and thy righteousness unto the kings son.
That he may govern thy people according to right, and defend the poor.
That *mountains may bring peace, and the little hills righteousness unto the people.
He shall keep the simple folk by their right, defend the children of the poor, and punish the wrong doer.
Thou shalt be feared as long as the sun and moon endureth, from one generation to another.
*By the mountains are understood the great men and rulers that receive the word of peace and by the little hills, their subjects. Psalms 114, 118 and Luke 3 MN
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 GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 16
And he said also unto his disciples. There was a certain rich man, which had a steward, that was accused unto him, that he had wasted his goods. And he called him: and said unto him: How is it, that I hear this of thee? Give accounts of thy stewardship: for thou mayest be no longer steward. The steward said with in him self: what shall I do? for my master will take away from me the stewardship. I cannot dig, and to beg, I am ashamed. I *wot what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
Then called he all his masters debtors, and said unto the first: how much owest thou unto my master? And he said: an hundred tuns of oil. And he said to him: take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty. Then said he to another: what owest thou? And he said: an hundred quarters of wheat. He said to him: Take thy bill, and write fourscore. And the Lord commended the unjust steward because he had done wisely. For the children of this world are in their kind, wiser then the children of light. And I say also unto you: make you friends of the wicked mammon, that when ye shall depart, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.
He that is faithful in that which is least the same is faithful in much. And he that is unfaithful in the least: is unfaithful also in much. So then if ye have not been faithful in the wicked mammon, who will believe you in that which is true? And if ye have not been faithful in another mans business: who shall give you your own? No servant can serve two masters, for either he shall hate the one and love the other, or else he shall lean to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
All these things heard the Pharisees also which were covetous, and they mocked him. And he said unto them: Ye are they which justify yourselves before men: but God knoweth your hearts. For that which is highly esteemed among men, is abominable in the sight of God
THE PSALMS Chpt 72
For he shall deliver the poor when he crieth, and the needy that hath no help.
He shall be favorable to the simple and poor, he shall preserve the souls of such as be in adversity. He shall deliver their souls from extortion and wrong, and dear shall be their blood be in his sight.
He shall live, and unto him shall be given of the gold of Arabia: prayer shall be made ever unto him, and daily shall he be praised.
THE PSALMS Chpt 109
Hold not thy tongue, O' God of my praise.
For the mouth of the ungodly, yee the mouth of the deceitful is open upon me, and speak against me with false tongues. They compassed me about with words of hatred, and fight against me without a cause. For the love that I had unto thee, they take now my contrary part, but I give myself unto prayer.
Thus they reward me evil for good, and hatred for my good will.
Set an ungodly man to be ruler over him, and let Satan stand at his right hand.
When sentence is given upon him, let him be condemned, and let his prayer be turned into sin.
Let his days be few, and his *bishopric let another take.
Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
Let his children be vagabonds, and beg their bread: let them seek it, as they that be destroyed.
Let the extortioner consume all that he hath, and let strangers spoil his labor.
Let there be no man to pity, ner have compassion on his fatherless children.
Let his end be destruction, and in the next generation let his name be put clean out.
Let the wickedness of his fathers be had in remembrance in the sight of Lord, and let not the sin of his mother be done away.
Let them always be before the Lord, but as for the memorial of them selves, let it perish from out of the earth. And that because his mind was not to do good, but persecuted the poor helpless, and him that was vexed at the heart, to slay him.
His delight was in cursing, and therefore shall it happen to him: he loved not blessing, and that shall he be far from. As he clothed himself with cursing like as with a raiment: yee it went into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.
Let it be unto him as the cloak that he hath on him, and as the girdle that he is girded withal.
Let it thus happen from the Lord unto mine enemies, and to those that speak evil against my soul.
But deal thou with me, O' Lord God, according unto thy name, for sweet is thy mercy.
O' deliver me, for I am helpless and poor, and my heart is wounded within me.
I go hence like the shadow that dispaireth, and am driven away as the grasshoppers.
My knees are weak through *fasting, and my flesh is dried up for want of fatness.
I am become a rebuke unto them, they look upon me and shake their heads.
Help me, O' Lord my God, O' save me for thy mercies sake.
That they may know, how that it is thy hand, and that thou hast done it.
Though they curse, yet bless thou: and let them be confounded, that rise up against me, but let thy servant rejoice. Let mine adversaries be clothed with their own shame, as with a cloak.
As for me, I will give thanks unto the Lord with my mouth, and praise him among the multitude. For he standeth at the right hand of the poor, to save him from such as condemn his soul.
* bishopric;The office or rank of Bishop. Referring to any rank, placement or position of high authority, wether it be clergy civil or military. RN
* By fasting here is understood, all bodily afflictions as it is said before in Psalmes 35. MN
EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 22
Moreover, the word of the Lord came unto me, and said: thou son of man, wilt thou not reprove this blood thirsty city? Show them their abominations, and tell them: Thus saith the Lord God: O thou city, that sheddest blood in the midst of thee, that thy time may come also: and makest the Idols to defile thee withal. Thou hast made thy self guilty in the blood that thou hast shed, and defiled thee in the Idols, which thou hast made. Thou hast caused thy days to draw nye, and made the time of thy years to come. Therefore will I make thee to be confounded among the heathen, and to be defiled in all the lands, whether they be nye or far from thee: they shall laugh thee to scorn, thou that hast gotten thee so foul a name, and art full of mischief. Behold, the rulers of Israel have brought every man his power, to shed blood in thee. In thee have they despised father and mother, in thee have they oppressed the stranger, in thee have they vexed the widow and the fatherless. Thou hast despised my Sanctuary, and unhallowed my sabbath. Murders are there in thee, that shed blood, and eat upon the hills, and in thee they use unhappiness.
In thee have they discovered their fathers shame, in thee have they vexed women in their sickness. Every man hath dealt shamefully with his neighbors wife, and abominably defiled his daughter in law. In that hath every man forced his own sister, even his fathers daughter. Yee gifts have been received in thee, to shed blood. Thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast oppressed thy neighbors by extortion, and forgotten me, saith the Lord God. Behold, I have smitten my hands upon thy covetousness, that thou hast used, and upon the blood which hath been in thee. Is thy heart able to endure it, or may thy hands defend themselves, in the time that I shall bring upon thee? Even I the Lord that speak it, will bring it also to pass. I will scatter thee among the heathen, and strew thee about in the lands, and will cause thy filthiness to cease out of thee. Yee and I will have thee in possession in the sight of the Heathen, that thou mayest know that I am the Lord.
And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying: Thou son of man, the house of Israel is turned to *dross. All they that should be brass, tin, iron, and lead, are in the fire become dross. Therefore, thus saith the Lord God: for as much as ye have all turned into dross, behold: I will bring you together unto Jerusalem, like as silver, and brass, iron, tin, and lead, are put together in the furnace and the fire blown there under to melt them: Even so I will gather you, put you in together, and melt you in my wrath and indignation. I will bring you together, and kindle the fire of my cruel displeasure under you, that ye may be melted therein.
Like as silver is melted in the fire, so shall ye also be melted therein: that ye may know, how that I the Lord have poured my wrath upon you.
And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying: Thou son of man, tell her: Thou art an unclean land, which is not rained upon in the day of the cruel wrath: thy Prophets that are in thee, are sworn together to devour souls, like as a roaring Lion, that liveth by his prey. They receive riches and good, and make many widows in thee. Thy priests break my law, and defile my Sanctuary. They put no difference between the holy and unholy, neither discern between the clean and the unclean: they turn their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am unhallowed among you. Thy rulers in thee are like raving wolves, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, for their own *covetous lucre. As for thy Prophets, they daub with untempered clay, they see vanities, and prophecy lies unto thee, saying: the Lord God sayeth so, where as the Lord hath not spoken. The people in the land useth wicked extortion and robbery. They vex the poor and needy and oppress the stranger against right. And I sought the land for a man, that would make up the hedge, and set himself in the gap before me in the lands behalf, that I should not utterly destroy it: but I could find none. Therefore will I poured out my cruel displeasure upon them, and burn them in the fire of my wrath: their own ways will I recompense upon their heads saith the Lord God
*dross=waste product formed during the firing of metal to make it soft (molten).
*covetous lucre= unearned profit, unjust gain, and/ or gain (profit) acquired by violence and or usury (Heb) RN
HOSEA or OSEAS Chpt 12
Ephraim leapeth the air, and followeth after the wind: he is ever increasing lies and destruction. They be confederate with the Assyrians, their oil is carried into Egypt. The Lord hath a court to hold with Judah, and will punish Jacob: After their own ways and according to their own intentions, shall he recompense them. He took his brother by the heel, when he was yet in his mothers womb: and in his strength he wrestled with God. He strove with the angel, and got the victory: so that he prayed and desired him. He found him at Bethel, and there he talked with us;
The Lord God of hosts, even the Lord him self remembered him: Then turn to thy God, keep mercy and equity, and hope still in thy God. But the merchant hath a false weight in his hand, he hath a pleasure to occupy extortion. Ephraim thinkest thus: Tush, I am rich, I have good enough: In all my works shall not one fault be found, that I have offended. Yet I am the Lord thy God, even as when I brought thee out of the land of Egypt, and set thee in thy tents, and as in the high feast days.
I have spoken through the prophets, and showed diverse visions, and declared myself by the ministration of the prophets. But at Galaad is the abomination, they are fallen to vanity. At Galgall they have slain oxen: and as many heaps of stones as they had in their land furrows, so many alters have they made. Jacob fled into the land of Syria, and Israell served for a wife, and for a wife he kept sheep.
By a prophet the Lord brought them out of Egypt, and by a prophet he preserved them. But Ephraim provoked him to displeasure through his abominations; therefore shall his blood be poured upon himself, and the Lord his God shall reward him his blasphemes
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 18
And he put forth a similitude unto them, signifying that men ought pray, and not to be weary saying: There was a Judge in a certain city, which feared not God neither regarded man. And there was a certain widow in the same city, which came unto him saying: avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while. But afterward he said unto himself: though I fear not God nor care for man, yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge lest at the last she come and hag on me.
And the Lord said hear what the unrighteous Judge saith. And shall not God avenge his elect, which cry day and night unto him, yee though he defer them? I tell you he will avenge them and that quickly. Nevertheless, when the son of man cometh, suppose you, that he shall find faith on the earth.
And he put forth this similitude, unto certain which trusted in them selves that they were perfect, and despised other. Two men went up into the temple to pray: the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharise stood and prayed thus with him self. God I thank thee that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, *advoutrers, or as this publican. I fast twice in the week. I give tithe of all that I possess. And the publican stood afar off, and would not lift up his eyes to heaven, but smote his breast saying: God be mercyfull to me a sinner. I tell you this man departed home to his house justified more than the other. For every man that exalteth himself, shall be brought low: An he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted.
They brought unto him also babes, that he should touch them. When the disciples saw that, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them unto him, and said: *Suffer children to come unto me, and forbid them not. For of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you: whosoever receiveth not the kingdom of God as a child, he shall not enter therein.
*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.
*Suffer (allow) *Hericho (Jericho)
THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 5
There goeth a common saying that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not once named among the gentiles: that one should have his fathers wife. And ye swell, and have not rather sorrowed, that he which hath done this deed, might be put from among you. For I verily as absent in body, even so present in spirit, have determined already (as though I were present) of him that hath done this deed, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of the Lord Jesus Christ, to deliver him unto Satan, for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Your rejoicing is not good: know ye not that a little leaven soureth the whole lump of dough? Purge therefore the old leaven, that ye may be new dough, as ye are sweet bread. For Christ our *ester lamb is offered up for us. Therefore let us keep holy day, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of maliciousness and wickedness: but with the sweet bread of pureness and truth.
I wrote unto you in an epistle that ye should not company with fornicators. And I meant not at all of the fornicators of this world, either of the covetous, or of extortioners, either of the idolaters: for then must ye needs have gone out of the world. But now I write unto you, that ye company not together, if any that is called a brother, be a fornicator, or covetous, or a worshipper of images, either a railer, either a drunkard, or an extortioner: with him that is such see that ye eat not. For what have I to do, to judge them which are without? Do ye not judge them that are within? Them that are without, God shall judge. Put away from among you, that evil person
*ester lamb: exactly as it appears; this is the Hebrew feast of sweet bread, and this lamb was offered at the first passover in Egypt
