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 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 heaps of guns ...
and more and more heaps of guns were brought ...
and the guns were being ...being traded for gold ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
FIRST BOOK OF SAMUEL Chpt 13
Then the Philistines gathered themselves together to fight with Israel, thirty thousand chariots and Six thousand horsemen with other people like the sand by the seas side in multitude and came up and pitched in Michmas eastward from Bethaven. And when the men of Israel saw themselves in a strait, and that the people were *acumbered, they hid themselves in caves, in privy holes, in rocks, dens and pits. And the Hebrews went over Jordan unto the land of Gad and Galaad. But Saul was yet in Galgal, and all the people that followed him were astounded. And he tarried seven days, as Samuel had appointed. But Samuel came not to Galgal, and the people scattered from him. Wherefore Saul said: bring burnt sacrifice to me and peace offerings. And he offered burnt sacrifice. And as soon as he had made an end of offering burnt offerings behold, Samuel came. And Saul went against him, to Salute him. Then said Samuel to Saul: what hast thou done? And Saul said, because I saw that the people scattered from me, and yet thou camest not within the days appointed and that the phlistines gathered themselves together to Machmas: then said I, the Philistines shall come down upon me to Galgal, before I have made supplication unto the Lord. And therefore I took a courage with me and offered burnt offerings. Then said Samuel to Saul: thou hast done foolishly and hast not kept the commandment of the Lord thy God which he commanded thee. For at this time would the lord have stablished thy kingdom upon Israel for ever. But now thy kingdom shall not continue. The Lord hath sought him a man after his own heart, and hath commanded him to be a captain over his people: because thou hast not kept that which the Lord commanded thee. And Samuel arose and gat him from Galgal to Gabaah Benjamin. And Saul numbered the people that were found with him, about a six hundred men. And Saul and Jonathas his son and the people that were found with them, had their abiding in Gabaah Benjamin. But the Philistines had pitched in Machmas. And there came out of the host of the Philistines three companies, to destroy: one company turned unto the way that leadeth to Ephrah unto the land of Sual. And another company turned the way to Bethoron. And the third company turned to the way of the coast that turneth to the valley of Zeboim toward the wilderness. But there was no smith throughout the land of Israel. For the Philistines thought that then the Hebrews might make them swords or spears. And therefore must all Israel go down to the Philistines, to mend every man his share, his mattock, his axe or his sickle: as oft as the edges of the sickles, mattocks, dung forks, and axes were blunt, and also to mend their goods. And so in time of battle there was neither sword nor spear found in the hands of any of the people that were with Saul and Jonathas: save for Saul and Jonathas his son was there somewhat found. And the Garrison of the Philistines came out and stood on the other side before Machmas
EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 39
Therefore O thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and speak: Thus saith the Lord God: Behold, O Gog: thou chief prince at Mesech and Tubal, I will upon thee, and turn thee about, and carry thee forth, and lead thee from the north parts, and bring thee up to the mountains of Israel. As for thy bow, I will smite it out of thy left hand, and cast thine arrows out of thy right hand. Thou with all thine heap, and all the people that is with thee, must fall upon the mountains of Israell. Then will I give thee unto the fouls and wild beasts of the field, to be devoured: there must thou lie upon the field: for even I the Lord have spoken it, saith the Lord God.
Into Magog, and among those that sit carelessly in the isles: will I send a fire, and they shall know, that I am the Lord. I will make also the name of my holiness to be known among my people of Israel: and I will not let my holy name be evil spoken of any more: but the very Heathen also shall know, that I am the Lord, the holy one in Israel. Behold, it cometh, and shall be fulfilled in deed, saith the Lord God. This is the day whereof I have spoken: They that dwell in the cities of Israel, shall go forth and set fire upon the weapons, and burn them: shields and spears, bows and arrows, bills and clubs: handstaves, seven years shall they be burning thereof, so that they shall else bring no sticks from the field, neither have need to hew down any out of the wood: For they shall have weapons now to burn. They shall rob those that robbed them, and spoil those that spoiled them, saith the Lord God.
At the same time I will give unto Gog, a place to be buried in, in Israel: even the valley, where through men go from the east to the seaward: Those that travel thereby, shall abhor it. There shall Gog and all his people be buried: and it shall be called The valley of the people of Gog. Seven months long shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. Yee, all the people of the land shall bury them. O it shall be a glorious day, when I get me that honor, saith the Lord God. They shall ordain men also to be dead buryers, ever going through the land, and appoint them certain places to bury those in, which remain upon the field, that the land may be cleansed. From end to end shall they seek, and that seven months long. Now those that go through the land, where they see a mans bone, they shall set up a token by it, till the dead buryers have buried it also, in the valley of the people of Gog. And the name of the city shall be called, Hamonah. Thus shall they make the land clean.
And, thou son of man: thus saith the Lord God: Speak unto all the fouls and every bird, yee and to all the wild beasts of the field: heap you together and come, gather you round about upon my slaughter, that I have slain for you: even a great slaughter upon the mountains of Israel: eat flesh and drink blood. Ye shall eat the flesh of the worthies, and drink the blood of the princes of the land: of the wethers, of lambs, of goats, and of the oxen that all be slain at Bashan. Eat the fat your belly full, and drink blood till ye be drunken of the slaughter, which I have slain unto you. Fill you at my table, with horses and strong horsemen: with captains and all men of war, saith the Lord God.
I will bring my glory also among the Gentiles, that all the Heathen may see my judgment, that I have kept, and my hand which I have laid upon them: that the house of Israel may know, how that I am the Lord their God, from that day forth. And the Heathen shall know, that where as the house of Israel were led into captivity: was for their wickedness sake, because they offended me.
For which cause I hid my face from them, and delivered them into the hands of their enemies, that they might all be slain with the sword. According to their uncleanness and unfaithful dealings, so have I entreated them, and hid my face from them. Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Now will I bring again the captives of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy names sake. All their confusion and offense that they have done against me, shall be taken away: and so safely shall they dwell in their land, that no man shall make them afraid. And when I have brought them again from among the people, when I have gathered them together out of their enemies lands, and am praised in them before many Heathen: then shall they know, that I am the Lord their God, which suffered them to be led into captivity among the Heathen, but have brought them again into their own land, and not left one of them in yonder.
After that, will I hide my face no more from them, but will pour out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God
SOPHONIAS or ZOPHONIAH Chpt 2
Come together and gather you, O *froward people: or the thing go forth that is concluded, and or the time be passed away as dust: or the fearful wrath of the Lord come upon you, yee or the day of the Lords sore displeasure come upon you. Seek the Lord all yee meek hearted upon the earth, ye that work after his judgement: seek righteousness, seek lowliness: that yee may be defended in the wrothfull day of the Lord. For Gaza shall be destroyed, and Ascalon shall be laid waste. They shall cast out Asood at the noon day, and Accaron shall be plucked up by the roots.
Woe unto you that dwell upon the sea coast, ye murderous people: the word of the Lord shall come upon you. O Canaan thou land of the Phillistines, I will destroy thee, so that there shall no man dwell in thee any more: and as for the sea coast, it shall be herdmans cottages and sheep folds: yee it shall be a portion for such as remain of the house of Juda, to feed there upon. In the houses of Ascalon shall they rest toward the night: for the Lord their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity. I have heard the despite of Moab, and the blasphemies of the children of Ammon how they have shamefully entreated my people, and magnified themselves within the borders of their land. Therefore as truly as I live ( sayeth the Lord of hosts the God of Israel ) Moab shall be as Sodom, and Ammon as Gomora: even dry thorn hedges, *salt pits and perpetual wilderness. The residue of my folk shall spoil them, the remnant of my people shall have them in possession. This shall happen unto them for their pride, because they have dealt so shamefully with the Lord of hosts people, and magnified themselves above them . The Lord shall be grime upon them, and destroy all the goods in the land. And all the Isles of Heathen shall worship him, every man in his place.
Ye Morians also shall perish with my sword: yee he shall stretch out his hand over the north, and destroy Assur. As for Nivive, he shall make it desolate, dry and waste. The flocks and the beasts of all the people shall lye in the midest of it, pelicans and storks shall abide in the upper posts of it, fowls shall sing in the windows, and ravens shall sit upon the *balcks, for the boards of cedar shall be run down. This the proud and careless city, that said in her heart: I am, and there is else none. O how is she made so waste, that the beasts lye therein? Who so goeth by, mock her, and pointeth at her with his finger
*froward=stubbornly contrary to truth, love and /or the spirit. *as barren as the places where salt is cast. *balcks= wooden beam or rafter
