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 show a man.
and the man loved God his father and Jesus his brother and Lord.
and that in spirit and truth.
and the man was in the parking lot of acres of darkness ...
and there came a heathen that was familiar to him ...
and the heathen feigned (pretended) friendship ...
and the heathen came into the car where the man was ...
and the heathen began to harass the man ...
and that by taunting him of his manliness according to how the heathen measure manliness ...
and then there was the slightly thieving of a small thing ...
and that to see what the man would do ...
and then there was the talk ...some small ...some boisterous ...
and that to see if the man would be offended ...
nevertheless the man who loved God his father and Jesus his brother was not moved ...
and especially not in spirit or truth ...
and the heathen seeing he was getting nowhere ...no where ...not aware ...left ...
and the heathen grinned as he left ...
and the heathen thought to tell stories to the other heathen ...
and that how he played the fool upon the man ...
and of corpse ...the heathen would make the stories worse that than were ...
and get much heathenish humor out of harassing the man ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 66
Thus saith the Lord: Heaven is my feet, and the earth is my footstool. Where shall now that house stand that ye build unto me? And where shall be the place, that I will dwell in ? As for these things, my hand hath made them all, and they are all created, saith the Lord. Which of them shall I then regard? Even him that is of a lowly troubled spirit, and standeth in awe of my works. For who so slayeth an ox for me, doeth me so great dishonor, as he that killeth a man. He that killeth a sheep for me, choketh a dog. He that bringeth me meat offerings, offereth swines blood: Who so maketh me a memorial of incense, praiseth the thing that is unright. Yet take they such ways in hand, and their soul delighteth in these abominations.
Therefore will I also have pleasure in laughing them to scorn, and the thing that they fear, will I bring upon them. For when I called no man gave answer: when I spake, they would not hear: But did wickedness before mine eyes, and chose the things that displeaseth me. Hear the word of God all ye, that fear the thing which he speaketh. Your brethren that hate you, and cast you out for my names sake, say: Let the Lord magnify himself, that we may see your gladness: and yet they shall be confounded.
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 23
If this people, either any prophet or a priest ask thee, and say: What is the burden of the Lord? Thou shalt say unto them: What burden? Therefore will I cast you from me ( saith the Lord ) because ye yourselves are a burden. And that prophet, priest, or people, that useth this term ( the burden of the Lord ) him I will visit, and his house also.
But thus shall ye say, every one to another: What answer hath the Lord given? or what is the Lords commandment? And as for this burden of the Lord, ye shall speak no more of it: for every mans own word is his burden, because ye have altered the words of the living God the Lord of Hosts our God.
Thus shall every man say to the Prophets: what answer hath the Lord given? thee? Or, what sayeth the Lord? And not once to name the burden of the Lord. Therefore thus sayeth the lord: For so much as ye have used this term ( the burden of the Lord ) where as I not withstanding sent unto you, and forbade you to speak of the Lords burden.
Behold therefore, I will repute you as a burden, and will cast you out of my presence: yee and the city also, that I gave you and your fathers: and will bring you to an everlasting confusion, and in such a shame, as shall never be forgotten
THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 1
Thus sayeth the almighty Lord: have I not prayed you, as a father his sons, as a mother her daughters, and as a nurse her young babes, that ye would be my people, and I should be your God: that ye would be my children, and I should be your own father: I gathered you together, as an hen gathereth her chickens under her wings. But now what shall I do unto you? I shall cast you out from my face: When ye offer unto me, I shall turn my face from you: for your solemn feast days, your new moons, and your circumcisions have I forsaken. I sent unto you my servants the Prophets, whom you have taken and slayen, and torn their bodies in pieces, whose blood I will require of your hands, sayeth the Lord.
Thus sayeth the almighty Lord: your house must be desolate. I will cast you out as the wind doeth the straw: your children shall not be fruitful, for they have despised my commandment, and done the thing that is evil before me. Your houses will I give unto a people that shall come, and they that never heard me shall believe in me: and they unto whom I never showed token, shall do the thing that I command them. They have seen no Prophets, yet shall they call their sin to remembrance, and knowledge them. I report me unto the grace, that I will do for that people which is to come, whose childern rejoice in gladness: and though they have not seen me with bodily eyes, yet in spirit they believe: the things that I say. And now brother, behold what great worship, and see the people that cometh from the East, unto whom I will give the dukedom of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, of *Dseas, Amos, and Micheas, of Joel, Abdy, Jonas, Naum, and Abacuc, of Sophony, Aggeus, Zachary, and Malachi; which is called also an angel (or messenger ) of the Lord
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 10
But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak, for it shall be given you, even in that same hour, what ye shall say. For it is not ye that speak, but the spirit of your father which speaketh in you. The brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son. And the children shall arise against their fathers and mothers, and shall put them to death: and ye shall be hated of all men for my name. But he that endureth to the end, shall be saved.
When they persecute you in one city, fly into another. I tell you for a truth, ye shall not finish all the cities of Israel, till the son of man be come. The disciple is not above his master: nor yet the servant above his Lord. It is enough for the disciple to be as his master is, and that the servant be as his Lord is. If they have called the Lord of the house Beelzebub: how much more shall they call them of his household so? Fear them not therefore. There is no thing so close, that shall not be opened, and no thing so hid, that shall not be known.
What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light. And what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye on the house tops.
And fear ye not them which kill the body, and be not able to kill the soul. But rather fear him, which is able to destroy both soul and body into hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And none of them doth light on the ground, without your father. And now are all the hairs of your heads numbered. Fear ye not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
Whosoever therefore shall knowledge me before men, him will I knowledge also before my father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my father which is in heaven.
Think not, that I am come to send peace into the earth. I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law: And a mans foes shall be they of his own household.
He that loveth his father, or mother more than me, is not meet for me. And he that loveth his son, or daughter more than me, is not meet for me. And he that taketh not his cross and followeth me, is not meet for me. He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake, shall find it.
He that receiveth you, receiveth me: and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me. He that receiveth a Prophet in the name of a Prophet, shall receive a Prophets reward. And he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man, shall receive the reward of a righteous man. And whosoever shall give unto one of these little ones to drink, a cup of cold water only, in the name of a disciple: I tell you of a truth, he shall not lose his reward
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 19
Then answered Peter, and said to him: Behold, we have forsaken all and followed thee, what shall we have? Jesus said unto them: verily I say to you: when the son of man shall sit in the seat of his majesty, ye which follow me in the second generation shall sit also upon twelve seats, and judge the twelve tribes of Israel. And whosoever forsaketh houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my names sake, the same shall receive an hundred fold, and shall inherit everlasting life. Many that are first shall be last, and the last shall be first
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 24
Then shall they put you to trouble, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my names sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one the other. And many false prophets shall arise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall have the upper hand, the love of many shall abate. But he that endureth to the end, the same shall be safe. And this glad tidings of the kingdom: shall be preached in all the world, for a witness unto all nations: and then shall the end come.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 9
John answered him saying: Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, which followeth not us and we forbade him because he followeth us not. But Jesus said, forbid him not. For there is no man that shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. Whosoever is not against you, is on your part. And whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink for my names sake, because ye belong to *Christe, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones, that believe in me, it were better for him, that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were cast into the sea.
Wherefore if thy hand offend thee, cut him off. It is better for thee, to enter into life maimed, than having two hands, go into hell, into fire that never shall be quenched, where their worm dieth not, and the fire never goeth out. Likewise if thy foot offend thee, cut him off. For it is better for thee to go halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into fire that never shall be quenched: where their worm dieth not, and the fire never goeth out. Even so if thine eye offend thee, pluck him out. It is better for thee to go into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire: where their worm dieth not, and the fire never goeth out.
Every man therefore shall be salted with fire. And every sacrifice shall be seasoned with salt. Salt is good. But if the salt be unsavoury, what shall ye salt therewith? See that ye have salt in yourselves: and have peace among yourselves, one with another
*Christe: exact spelling
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 21
But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the Synagogues and into prison, and bring you before kings and rulers for my names sake. And this shall chance you for a testimonial. Let it stick therefore fast in your hearts, not once to study before, what ye shall answer: for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, where against, all your adversaries shall not be able to speak nor resist. Ye and ye shall be betrayed of your fathers and mothers, and of your brethren, and kinsmen, and lovers, and some of you shall they put to death. And hated shall ye be of all men for my names sake. Yet there shall not one hair of your heads perish. With your patience possess your souls.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 15
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that ye go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit remain, that whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name, he should give it you.
This command I you, that ye love together. If the world hate you, ye know that he hated me before he hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own. How be it because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore hateth you the world. Remember the saying that I said unto you: the servant is not greater than the Lord.
If they have persecuted me, so will they persecute you. If they have kept my sayings, so will they keep yours.
But all these things will they do unto you for my names sake, because they have not known him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them they should not have had sin: but now have they nothing to cloak their sin with all. He that hateth me, hateth my father. If I had not done works among them which none other man did, they had not had sin. But now have they seen, and yet have hated both me and my father: even that the saying might be fulfilled that is written in their law: they hated me without a cause.
But when the comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the father, which is the spirit of truth, which proceedeth of the father, he shall testify of me. And ye shall bear witness also, because ye have been with me from the beginning
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 2
Unto the messenger of the congregation of Ephesus write: These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, and walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks. I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not forbear them which are evil: and examinedst them which say they are Apostles, and are not: and hast found them liars and didst wash thy self. And hast patience: and for my names sake hast laboured and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, for thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works. Or else I will come unto thee shortly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. But this thou hast because thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which deeds I also hate. Let him that hath ears hear, what the spirit saith unto the congregations. To him that overcometh, will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 27
Then the soldiers of the deputy took Jesus unto the common hall, and gathered unto him all the company. And they stripped him and put on him a purple robe, and *plaited a crown of thorns and put upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and bowed their knees before him, and mocked him, saying: hail king of the Jews: and spitted upon him, and took the reed and smote him on the head.
And when they had mocked him, they took the robe off him again, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him. And as they came out, they found a man of Cyren, named Simon: him they compelled to bear his cross. And when they came unto the place, called Golgotha (that is to say, a place of dead mens skulls) they gave him vinegar to drink mingled with *gall. And when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
When they had crucified him, they parted his garments, and did cast lots: to fulfil that was spoken by the Prophet: They divided my garments among them: and upon my vesture did cast lots. And they sat and watched him there and they set up over his head the cause of his death written: This is Jesus the king of the Jews. And there were two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
They that passed by, reviled him wagging their heads and saying: Thou that destroyest the temple of God and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the son of God, come down from the cross. Likewise also the high priests mocking him with the Scribes and elders said: He saved other, him self he cannot save. If he be the king of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. He trusted in God, let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the son of God. That same also the thieves which were crucified with him, cast in his teeth.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 23
And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate. And they began to accuse him saying: We have found this fellow perverting the people, and forbidding to pay tribute to Cesar: saying, that he is Christ a king. And Pilate opposed him saying: art thou the king of the Jews? He answered him and said: thou sayest it. Then said Pilate to the high Priests, and to the people: I find no fault in this man. And they were the more fierce saying. He moveth the people, teaching throughout Jewry, and began at Galile, even to this place.
When Pilate heard mention of Galile he asked whether the man were of Galilee. And as soon as he knew that he was of Herodes jurisdiction he sent him to Herode, which was also at Jerusalem in those days. And when Herode saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad. For he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him, and trusted to have seen some miracle done by him. Then questioned he with him of many things. But he answered him not one word. The high Priests and Scribes, stood forth and accused him straitly. And Herod with his men of war, despised him, and mocked him, and arrayed him in white, and sent him again to Pilate. And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together. For before they were at variance.
THE SECOND TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 1
Wherefore I warn thee that thou stir up the gift of God which is in thee, by the putting on of my hands. For God hath not given to us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of soberness of mind. Be not ashamed to testify our Lord, neither be ashamed of me, which am bound for his sake: but suffer thou adversity also with the Gospell, through the power of God, which saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our deeds, but according to his own purpose and grace, which grace was given us through Christ Jesu before the world was, but is now declared openly by the appearing of our saviour Jesu Christ which hath put away death, and hath brought life and immortality unto light through the Gospell, whereunto I am appointed, a preacher, and an Apostle, and a teacher of the gentiles: for the which cause I also suffer these things. Nevertheless I am not ashamed. For I know whom I have believed, and am sure that he is able to keep that which I have committed to his keeping, against that day.
See thou have the example of the wholesome words which thou heardest of me, in faith and love which is in Jesu Christ. That, that good thing, which was committed to thy keeping, keep in the holy ghost which dwelleth in us. This thou knowest how that all they which are in Asia, be turned from me. Of which sort are Phigelos and Hermogenes. The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain: but when he was at Rome, besought me out very diligently, and found me. The Lord grant unto him that he may find mercy with the Lord at that day. And in how many things he ministered unto me at Ephesus thou knowest very well
