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 dream during the 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 mans house ...
and there came against the mans house all measure and ill manner of people ...
even as to throw stones at the mans house ...
even to break at the windows of the mans house ...
and to pound on the walls of the mans house ...
and to break in upon the the closed doors ...
even to wreck at open doors ...
nevertheless the man stayed within ...within his house ...
and he prayed ...
and there was a seeing of the mans house being ...being in throws ...
and there came a heavy rain ...a hard rain ...
and so much so that the and troublesome were cast down of the rain...
and there came other to help the man dressed in white ...
Yet harnessed against trouble and the troublesome ...
and the throwers of stones fled ...
Yet were caught and could not escape ...
and the man would have peace roundabout his house again ...
Yet even inside his house ...there came disquietness ...
even from among those ...within ...within his house ...
and the man went into a room and shut the door ...
and he prayed the more ...
and those that might disquiet the man were without ...
even were kept with out ...
and kept from disquieting the man ...
and there came a hard rain ...
and there came a hard reign ...
and the man came out of his house and enjoyed ...in joyed the warmth and light of God his father and Jesus his brother and Lord.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 3
Therefore holy brethren, partakers of the celestial callings consider the ambassador and high priest of our profession Christ Jesus, which was faithful to him that made him, even as was Moses in all his house. And yet was this man counted worthy of more glory than Moses: In as much as he which hath prepared the house, hath most honour in the house. Every house is prepared of some man. But he that ordained all things, is God. And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a minister, to bear witness of those things which should be spoken afterward. But Christ as a son, hath rule over the house, whose house are we, so that we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of that hope, unto the end.
Wherefore as the *holy ghost saith: today if ye shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts, after the rebellion in the day of temptation in the wilderness, where your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years long. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation and said: They *erre ever in their hearts: they verily have not known my ways so that I sware in my wrath, that they should not enter into my rest. Take heed brethren that there be in none of you an evil heart in unbelief, that he should depart from the living God: but exhort one another daily, while it is called today, lest any of you wax hard hearted through the deceitfulness of sin.
We are partakers of Christ if we keep sure unto the end the first substance, so long as it is said: today if ye hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as when ye rebelled. For some, when they heard, rebelled: how be it not all that came out of Egypt under Moses. But with whom was he displeased forty years? Was he not displeased with them that sinned whose carcasses were overthrown in the desert? To whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest: but unto them that believed not? And we see that they could not enter in, because of unbelief
*holy ghost saith: aka: spirit of truth. *erre (error) then is plain; against the very truth and verity (realness) of God and Christ
THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 6
And the word of God increased, and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly, and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith. And Stephen full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people. Then there arose certain of the Synagogue which are called Libertines and Syrenites, and of Alexandria, and of Cilicia, and Asia, and disputed with Steven. And they could not resist the wisdom, and the spirit, with which he spake. Then sent they in men, which said: we have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against God. And they moved the people and the elders and the scribes: and came upon him and caught him, and brought him to the council, and brought forth false witnesses which said. This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place and the law: for we heard him say: this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the ordinances which Moses gave us. And all that sat in the council, looked steadfastly on him, and saw his face as it had been the face of an Angel.
THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 7
Then said the chief priest: is it even so? And he said: ye men, brethren and fathers, hearken to. The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham while he was yet in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran, and said unto him: come out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land, which I shall show thee. Then came he out of the land of Chaldey, and dwelt in Charran. And after that, as soon as his father was dead, he brought him into this land in which ye now dwell, and he gave him none inheritance in it, no not the breadth of a foot: but promised that he would give it to him to possess and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.
God verily spake on this wise, that his seed should be a dweller in a strange land and that they should keep them in bondage and entreat them evil four hundred years. But the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge, said God. And after that shall they come forth and serve me in this place. And he gave him the covenant of circumcision. And he begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day, and Isaac begat Jacob, and Jacob the twelve Patriarchs. And the Patriarchs having indignation sold Joseph into Egypt. And God was with him, and delivered him out of all his adversities, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharao king of Egypt which made him governor over Egypt, and over all his household.
Then came there a dearth over all the land of Egypt and Canaan, and great affliction, that our fathers found no sustenance. But when Jacob heard that there was corn in Egypt he sent our fathers first, and at the second time, Joseph was known of his brethren, and Josephs kindred was made known unto Pharao. Then sent Joseph and caused his father to be brought and all his kin, three score and fifteen souls. And Jacob descended into Egypt and died both he and our fathers, and were translated into Sichem, and were put in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for money of the sons of Emor, at Syihem.
When the time of the promise drew nigh (which God had sworn to Abraham) the people grew and multiplied in Egypt, till another king arose which knew not of Joseph. The same dealt subtly with our kindred and evil intreated our fathers, and made them to cast out their young children, that they should not remain alive. The same time was Moses born, and was a proper child in the sight of God, which was nourished up in his fathers house three months. When he was cast out, Pharaohs daughter took him up, and nourished him up for her own son. And Moses was learned in all manner wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in deeds and in words.
And when he was full forty year old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren, the children of Israel. And when he saw one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged his quarrel that had the harm done to him, and smote the Egyptian. For he supposed his brethren would have understood, how that God by his hands should save them. But they understood not.
And the next day he showed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one again saying: Sirs, ye are brethren, why hurt ye one another? But he that did his neighbour wrong, thrust him away saying: who made thee a ruler and a judge among us? What, wilt thou kill me, as thou didst the Egyptian yesterday? Then fled Moses at that saying, and was a stranger in the land of Madian, where he begat two sons.
And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an Angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush. When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight. And as he drew near to behold, the voice of the Lord came unto him: I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Moses trembled and durst not behold. Then said the Lord to him: Put off thy shoes from thy feet, for the place where thou standest is holy ground. I have perfectly seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come and I will send thee into Egypt.
This Moses whom they forsook saying: who made the a ruler and a judge? the same God sent both a ruler and deliverer, by the hands of the Angel which appeared to him in the bush. And the same brought them out, showing wonders and signs in Egypt, and in the reed sea and in the wilderness forty years. This is that Moses which said unto the children of Israel: A Prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me, him shall ye hear.
This is he that was in the congregation, in the wilderness with the Angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers. This man received the word of life to give unto us, to whom our fathers would not obey, but cast it from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt, saying unto Aaron: Make us Gods to go before us. For this Moses that brought us out of the land of Egypt, we *wot not what is become of him. And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the image, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.
Then God turned himself and gave them up, that they should worship the stars of the sky, as it is written in the book of the Prophets: O ye of the house of Israel, gave ye to me sacrifices and meat offerings, by the space of forty years in the wilderness? And ye took unto you the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them. And I will translate you beyond Babylon.
Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as he had appointed them speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen. Which tabernacle our fathers received, and brought it in with Joshue into the possession of the Gentiles which God drave out before the face of our fathers unto the time of David, which found favour before God, and would faine have made a tabernacle for the God of Jacob. But Solomon built him an house.
How be it he that is highest of all, dwelleth not in temples made with hands, as saith the Prophet: Heaven is my seat, and earth is my footstool, what house will ye build for me saith the Lord? or what place is it that I should rest in hath not my hand made all these things?
Ye stiffnecked and of uncircumcised hearts and ears: ye have all ways resisted the holy ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the Prophets have not your fathers persecuted? And they have slain them, which showed before of the coming of that *Just, whom ye have now betrayed and murdered. And ye also have received a law by the ordinance of Angels, and have not kept it.
When they heard these things, their hearts clave asunder, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. But he being full of the holy ghost, looked up steadfastly with his eyes into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, and said: behold, I see the heavens open, and the son of man standing on the right hand of God. Then they gave a shout with a loud voice, and stopped their ears and ran upon him all at once, and cast him out of the city, and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young mans feet named Saul. And they stoned Steven calling on and saying: Lord Jesus receive my spirit. And he kneeled down and cried with a loud voice: Lord lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had thus spoken, he fell asleep

THE PSALMS Chpt 91
Who so dwelleth under the defense of the most highest, and abideth under the shadow of the Almighty.
He shall say unto the Lord: O' my hope, and my stronghold, my God, in whom I will I trust. For he shall deliver thee from the snare of the hunter, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee under his wings, that thou mayest be safe under his feathers: his faithfulness and his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
So that thou shalt not need to be afraid for any bugs by night, ner for the arrow that flieth by day. For the pestilence that creepeth in the darkness, ner the sickness that destroyeth in the noonday.
a thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy right hand, but it shall not come nye thee.
Yee with thine eyes shalt thou behold, and see the reward of the ungodly.
For thou Lord art my hope, thou hast set thine house of defense very high.
There shall no evil happen unto thee, neither shall any plague come nye thy dwelling.
For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee in their hands, that thou hurt not thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt go upon the Lion and Adder, the young Lion and the Dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet.
Because he hath set his love upon me, I shall deliver him: I shall defend him, for he hath known my name. When he calleth upon me, I shall hear him: Yee I am with him in his trouble, whereout I will deliver him, and bring him to honor.
With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 7
Not all they that say unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter in to the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth my fathers will which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not in thy name Prophesied? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name have done many miracles? And then will I knowledge unto them that I never knew them. Depart from me, ye workers of iniquity.
Whosoever heareth of me these sayings and doeth the same, I will liken him unto a wise man which built his house on a rock: and abundance of rain descended, and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that same house, and it fell not, because it was grounded on the rock. And whosoever heareth of me these sayings and doth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man which built his house upon the land: and abundance of rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.
And it came to pass, that when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were *astonied at his doctrine. For he taught them as one having power, and not as the scribes
*astonied: astounded, astonished.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 22
And he said unto me: seal not the sayings of the prophesy of this book. For the time is at hand. He that doth evil, let him do evil still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be more righteous: and he that is holy, let him be more holy. And behold I come shortly, and my reward with me, to give every man according as his deeds shall be. I am Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end: the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that their power may be in the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without shall be dogs and enchanters and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth or maketh leasings.
I Jesus sent mine angel, to testify unto you these things in the congregations. I am the root and the generation of David, and the bright morning star. And the spirit and the bride said come. And let him that heareth, say also, come. And let him that is a thirst, come. And let whosoever will, take of the water of life, free.
I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book: *If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall minish of the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from those things which are written in this book. He which testifieth these things saith: be it, I come quickly, Amen.
Even so: come Lord Jesu.
The grace of our Lord Jesu Christ be with you all:
THE PSALMS Chpt 2
Why do the heathen grudge? Why do the people imagine a vain things? The kings of the earth stand up, and the rulers are come together, against the Lord, and against his anointed. Let us break their bonds asunder, and cast away their yoke from us. Nevertheless he that dwelleth in heaven, shall laugh them to scorn: yee even the Lord himself shall have them in *derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
Yet have I set my King upon my holy hill of Sion.
As for me, I will preach the law, whereof the Lord hath said unto me: Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee. Desire of me, and I shall give thee the Heathen for thine inheritance, Yee the uttermost parts of the world for thy possession. Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, and break them in pieces like an earthen vessel.
Be wise now therefore, O ye kings, be warned, ye judges of the earth.
Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice before him with reverence.
Kiss the Son, lest the Lord be angry, and so ye perish from the right way.
For his wrath shall be kindled shortly: blessed are all they that put their trust in him
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 2
And unto the messenger of the congregation of Thiatira write: This sayth the son of God, which has his eyes like unto a flame of fire, whose feet are like brass: I know thy works and thy love, service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy deeds, which are more at the last then at the first. Not withstanding I have a few things against thee, that thou *sufferest that woman Jezabel, which called herself a Prophetess, to teach and to deceive my servants, to make them commit fornication, and to eat meats offered up unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit fornication with her, into great adversity, except they turn from their deeds. And I will kill her children with death. And all the congregations shall know that I am he which searches the reins and hearts. And I will give unto everyone of you according to your works.
Unto you I say, and unto others of them of Thiatira, as many as have not this learning and which have not known the deepness of *Sathan (as they say). I will put upon you none other burden, but that which you have already. Hold fast until I come, and whosoever overcometh and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over nations, and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and as the vessels of a potter, shall he break them to shivers. Even as I received of my father, so will I give him the morning star. Let him that has ears, hear what the spirit says to the congregations
*Sathan (Satan); exact spelling. *sufferest (allow)
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 12
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. And she was with child and cried travailing in birth, and pained ready to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven, for behold a great red dragon having seven heads, and ten horns and crowns upon his heads: and his tail drew the third part of the stars, and cast them to the earth.
And the dragon stood before the woman, which was ready to be delivered: for to devour her child as soon as it were born. And she brought forth a man child, which should rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her son was taken up unto God, and to his seat. And the woman fled into wilderness, where she had a place, prepared of God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
And there was a great battle in heaven, Michael and his Angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his Angels, and prevailed not: neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon, that old serpent called the devil and Satan was cast out. Which deceiveth all the world. And he was cast into the earth, and his angels were cast out also.
And I heard a loud voice saying: in heaven is now made salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ. For he is cast down which accused them before God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth, and of the sea: for the devil is come down unto you which hath great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
And when the dragon saw, that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, times, and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And the dragon cast out of his mouth water after the woman as it had been a river, because she should have been caught of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed, up the river, which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman: and went and made war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. And I stood on the sea *stonde
*stonde: two possible words come from the Middle English: stound: meaning "a short time" and stonen: meaning "stunned". stunned because of the vision
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 19
And after that, I heard the voice of much people in heaven saying: Alleluya. Salvation and glory and honour and power be ascribed to the Lord our God, for true and righteous are his judgements, for he hath judged the great whore which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants of her hand. And again they said: Alleluya. And smoke rose up for evermore. And the twenty four elders, and the four beasts fell down, and worshipped God that sat on the seat saying: Amen, Alleluya. And a voice came out of the seat, saying: praise our Lord God all ye that are his servants, and ye that fear him both small and great.
And I heard the voice of much people, even as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of strong thunderings, saying: Alleluya, for God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice and give honour to him: for the marriage of the lamb is come, and his wife made herself ready. And to her was granted, that she should be arrayed with pure and goodly raynes. For the raynes is the righteousness of saints. And he said unto me, happy are they which are called unto the Lambs supper. And he said unto me: these are the true sayings of God. And I fell at his feet, to worship him. And he said unto me, see thou do it not for I am thy fellow servant, and one of thy brethren, and of them that have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. And I saw heaven open, and behold a white horse: and he that sat upon him was faithful and true, and in righteousness did judge and make battle. His eyes were as a flame of fire: and on his head were many crowns: and he had a name written, that no man knew but him self. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, and his name is called the word of God. And the warriors which were in heaven, followed him upon white horses, clothed with white and pure raynes: and out of his mouth went out a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the heathen. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron, and he trod the *winefat of fierceness and wrath of almighty God. And hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written: king of kings, and Lord of Lords.
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
*winefat: see above ch 14. *stand: stande from the original.
