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 within ...within a mans house ...
and the man had made his house of hard floors like stone ...
and every each place within ...within was like stone ...
and no room of any or for anything that was not of stone ...
and the walls were made of concrete ...
and the walls were thick ...of the grayness ...of hardened concrete...
and the windows were small ...
and the man went from window to window prowling ...
and that as if to protect his house of his own strength ...
and of his own being hard ...
and there was a man praying ...
even as he was shown the hardness of the mans house ...
and Behold the mans house began to changed within ...
and the man began to walk more softly within ...within his house ...
and behold within the house the stoney became as fleshly ...
even the color thereof ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 36
Thou son of man, prophesy upon the mountains of Israel, and speak: Hear the word of the Lord, O ye mountains of Israel: Thus saith the Lord God: Because your enemy hath said upon you: Aha, the high everlasting places are now become ours: prophesy therefore, and speak: thus saith the Lord God: Seeing ye be wasted and trod down on every side, and become a possession unto the residue of the Gentiles, which have brought you into mens mouths and unto an evil name among the people: Therefore, hear the word of the Lord God, O ye mountains of Israel: Thus saith the Lord God unto the mountains, and hills, valleys and dales, to the void wilderness and desolate cities, which are spoiled, and had in derision on every side, among the residue of the Heathen: Yee even thus saith the Lord God: In the fire of my jealousy have I taken a device, against the residue of the Gentiles, and against all Edom: which have taken in my land unto themselves for a possession: which also rejoiced from their whole heart with despiteful stomach, to waste it, and to spoil it.
Prophesy therefore upon the land of Israel, speak unto the mountains and hills, to valleys and dales, thus saith the Lord God: Behold, this have I devised in my jealousy and terrible wrath: For so much as yee have suffered reproof of the Heathen, therefore thus saith the Lord God: I have sworn, that the Gentiles that lay about you, shall bear your confusion themselves. And as for you ( O mountains of Israel ) ye shall shoot out your branches, and bring forth your fruit to my people of Israel, for it is hard by, that it will come. Behold, I come unto you, and unto to you will I turn me, that ye may be tilled and sown. I will send you much people, which shall be all of the house of Israel: the cities shall be inhabited, and the decayed places shall be repaired again. I will provide you with much people and cattle, which shall increase and bring fruit. I will restore you also to your old estate, and show you more kindness than ever ye had before: whereby ye shall know, that I am the Lord. Yee, people will I send unto you ( O my folk of Israell ) which shall have thee in possession, and thou shalt be their inheritance, so that thou shalt no more be without them. Again, thus saith the Lord God: For so much as they say unto you: thou art an eater up of men, and a waster of thy people: therefore thou shalt eat no more men. neither destroy thy people any more, saith the Lord God. And I will not suffer thee, for to hear thine own confusion among the Gentiles from henceforth. Thou shalt not bare the reproof of the nations, nor cast out thine own people any more, saith the Lord God.
Moreover, the word of the Lord came unto me, saying: O thou son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt upon their own ground, they defiled themselves with their own *waies and imaginations: so that in my sight their way was like the uncleanness of a menstruous woman. Wherefore I poured my wrothfull displeasure upon them, because of the blood that they had shed in the land, and because of their Idols, wherewith they had defiled themselves. I scattered them also among the Heathen, so that they were strewed about in the lands. According to their ways and after their own inventions, so did I punish them.
Now when they were gone unto the Heathen, and come in among them they dishonored my holy name: so that it was said of them: Are these the people of God, and must go out of their own land? Then spared I my holy name, which the house of Israel had dishonored among the Gentiles, to whom they came. Therefore tell the house of Israell: Thus saith the Lord God: I do not this for your sakes ( O house of Israel ) but for my holy names sake, which ye have dishonored among the Heathen, they came to them. Therefore I will hallow my great name again, which among the Gentiles is evil spoken of: for ye yourselves have dishonored it among them. And the Gentiles shall know that I am the Lord, when I am honored in you before their eyes, sayeth the Lord God.
As for you, I will take you from among the Heathen, and gather you together out of all countries, and bring you again into your own land. Then I will pour clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: yee from all your uncleanness and from all your Idols shall I clean you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put in you: As for that stoney heart, I will take it out of your body, and give you a fleshly heart. I will give my spirit among you, and cause you to walk in my commandments, and to keep my laws, and to fulfill them.
And so ye shall dwell in the land, that I gave to your fathers, and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. I will help you out of all your uncleannesses. I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and will let you have no hunger. I will multiply the fruits of the trees, and the increase of the field for you, so that ye shall bear no more reproof of hunger among the Heathen. Then shall ye remember your own wicked ways, and your imaginations, which were not good: so that ye shall take displeasure at your own selves, by reason of your sins and abominations.
But I will not do this for your sakes ( saith the Lord God ) be ye sure of it. Therefore, O ye house of Israel, be ashamed of your sins. Moreover, thus saith the Lord God: what time as I shall cleanse you from all your offenses, then will I make the cities to be occupied again, and will repair the places that be decayed. The desolate land shall be builded again, which afore time lay waste in the sight of all them that went by. Then shall it be said: this waste land is become like the garden of pleasure, and the void, desolate and broken down cities, are now strong, and fenced again. Then the residue of the Heathen that lay round about you, shall know that I am the Lord, which repair that was broken down, and plant again, that was made waste. Even I the Lord have spoken it, and will do it indeed.
Thus saith the Lord God: I will yet once be found again of the house of Israel, and do this for them: I shall increase them as a flock of men. Like as the holy flock and the flock of Jerusalem are in the high solemn feasts: so shall also the wild wasted cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the Lord

THE PSALMS Chpt 18
He delivered me from my strong enemies, and from my foes which were too mighty for me.
They prevented me in the time of my trouble, but the Lord was my defense.
He brought me forth also into liberty: and delivered me, because he had a favor unto me.
THE PSALMS Chpt 32
Blessed are they, whose unrighteousness is forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
Blessed is the man, unto whom the Lord *imputeth no sin, in whose spirit there is no *guile.
For while I held my tongue, my bones consumed away through my daily complaining. And because thy hand was so heavy on me both day and night, my moisture was like the drought in Summer. Selah.
Therefore I confessed my sin unto thee, and hid not mine unrighteousness. I said: I will knowledge my offense, and accuse myself unto the Lord, and so thou forgavest me the wickedness of my sin. Selah.
For this shall every saint make his prayer unto thee in due season, therefore shall not the great water floods come nigh him. Thou art my defense in the trouble that has come about me, O' compass thou me about also with the joy of deliverance. Selah.
I will enform thee, and show thee the way wherein thou shalt go:* I will fasten mine eyes upon thee. Be not ye now like horses and mules, which have no understanding.
Whose mouths thou must hold with bit and bridle, if they will not obey thee. Great plagues shall the ungodly have, but who so putteth his trust in the Lord, mercy shall compass him on every side.
Be glad, O' ye righteous, and rejoice in the Lord, be joyful all ye that are true of heart

THE PSALMS Chpt 59
Deliver me from mine enemies ( O' my God ) and defend me from them that rise up against me.
O' deliver me from the wicked doers, and save me from the bloodthirsty men.
For lo, they lie in waiting for my soul: the mighty men are gathered together against me, without any offense or fault of me, O' Lord. They run, and prepare themselves, without my fault: Arise, come thou help me, and behold.
Stand up O' Lord God of Hosts, thou God of Israel to visit all Heathen: be not merciful unto them that offend of malicious wickedness. Selah.
Let them go to and fro, and run about the city, howling like dogs. Behold, they speak ( against me ) with their mouth, swords are under their lips, for who reproveth them?
But thou ( O' Lord ) shalt have them in *derision, thou shalt laugh the Heathen to scorn.
My strength do I ascribe unto thee, for thou ( O' God ) art my defender.
God showeth me his goodness plentiously, God letteth me see my desire upon mine enemies. Slay them not, lest my people forget it: but scatter them abroad by thy power, and put them down, O' Lord my defense. For the sin of their mouth, for the words of their lips, and because of their pride, let them be taken: and why? their preaching is of cursing and lies. Consume them in thy wrath, consume them that they may perish, and know that it is God, which ruleth in Jacob and in all the world. Selah.
And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
Let them go to and fro, and run about the city, howling like dogs. Let them run here and there for meat, and grudge when they have not enough.
As for me, I will sing of thy power, and praise thy mercy by times in the morning: for thou art my defense and refuge in the time of my trouble. Unto thee ( O' my strength ) will I sing, for thou ( O' God ) art my defense, and my merciful God.
*derision = ridicule, contempt, mockery. RN
THE PSALMS Chpt 62
My soul waiteth only upon God, for of him cometh my help.
He only is my strength, my salvation, my defense, so that I shall not greatly fall.
How long will ye imagine mischief against every man? ye shall be slain all of the sort of you: yee as a tottering wall shall ye be, and like a broken hedge. Their devise is only to put him out, their delight is in lies: they give good words with their mouth, but curse with their heart. Selah.
Nevertheless, my soul abideth only upon God, for he is my God.
He only is my strength, my salvation, my defense: so that I shall not fall.
In God is my health, my glory, my might and in God is my trust.
O' put your trust in him always, ( ye people ) pour out your hearts before him, for God is our hope. Selah.
As for men they are but vain, men are deceitful: upon the weights they are altogether lighter than vanity it self. O' trust not in wrong or robbery, give not yourselves unto vanity: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
God spake once a word, twice have I heard the same, that power belongeth unto God.
That thou Lord art merciful, and that thou rewardest every man according to his works
THE PSALMS Chpt 119
Nun The 14th letter of the Hebrew alphabet pronounced "noon"
Thy word is a *lantern unto my feet and a light unto my paths.
I have sworn and am steadfastly purposed, to keep thy the judgements of thy righteousness.
I am troubled above measure, quicken me, O Lord, according unto thy word.
Let the freewill offerings of my mouth please thee, O' Lord, and teach me thy judgments.
The ungodly have laid a snare for me, but yet swerve not I from thy commandments.
Thy testimonies have I claimed as my heritage for ever: and why? they are the very joy of my heart.
Samech The 15th letter of the Hebrew alphabet pronounced "Sa-mek"
*I hate the ungodly, but thy law do I love.
Thou art my defense and my shield, my trust is in thy word.
Away from me ye wicked, I will keep the commandments of my God.
O' stablish me according unto thy word, that I may live, and let me not be disappointed of my hope. Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: yee I shall ever be **talking of thy statutes.
Thou treadest down all them that *depart from thy statutes, for they imagine deceit. Thou puttest away all the ungodly of the earth like *dross, therefore I love thy testimonies.
My flesh trembleth for fear of thee, and I am afraid of thy judgments.
THE PSALMS Chpt 144
Blessed be the Lord my refuge, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight. My hope and my castle, my defense and my deliverer, my shield in whom I trust, *which governeth the people that is under me.
Lord, what is man, that thou hast such respect unto him? Or the son of man, that thou so regardest him? Man is like a thing of naught, his time passeth away like a shadow.
Bow thy heavens, O' Lord, and come down, touch the mountains, that they may smoke withal. Send forth lightning, and scatter them, shoot out thine arrows, and consume them. Send down thine hand from above, deliver me, and take me out of the great waters, from the hand of strange children. Whose mouth talketh of vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
That I may sing a new song unto thee, O' God, and sing praises unto thee upon a ten stringed lute. Thou that givest victory unto Kings, and hast delivered David thy servant from the peril of the sword.
Save me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth talketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
That our sons may grow up as the young plants, and that our daughters may be as the polished cornerstones of the temple. That our garners may be full and plenteous with all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and hundredth thousands in our villages. That our oxen may be strong to labor, that there be no mischance, no decay, and no complaining in the streets.
Happy are the people that be in such a case: yee blessed are the people, which have the Lord for their God
*KJV = subdueth my people under me.
