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 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 place ...
and the place was like a dry lifeless desert ...
and was full of dust and dirt and filth ...
and anything living ...anything that was living ...grasp upon whatsoever ...water ...might remain.
and real estate brokers ...like carnival barkers ...were selling lots ...of the place ...that any might build their...houses ...there ...
and they would sell one piece and each one the smallest of parcels ...
and that to make as much money as possible ...off of ...the wretched dry dusty dirty ...clutching to life place ...
and the withering heat rose up like ribbons ...as far as the eye could see ...
even to low and loathsome ...and high mountains of the wasted worthless place ...
even to the horizon ...whore rising ...
and suddenly a man appeared ...
and with the man his son ...
and with the man and his son and others ...
and the man and his son and others were like hearted ...like minded and like spirited ...
and they loved God and Jesus.
and that in spirit and truth according to measure.
and the man and his son as well as the others ...began to build houses ...
and every each one helped the other with the building and maintaining their houses.
and the houses were built ...that every each one had room enough.
evenso all of all were very close...one to another.
and suddenly all of all of that ...that was before was gone ...and the dryness and filth and dirtiness were gone ...
and the lifelessness was gone ...
and was like that a beauty full wonder full garden place appeared where before was worthless waste and deadly dry desert ...
and there was brightness and life and living as far as the eye could see ...
even that there was no end to it ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
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.
THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 3
In the third year of the fall of the city, I was at Babylon, and lay troubled upon my bed, and my thoughts came up over my heart: for I saw the desolation of Sion, and the plenteous wealth of them that dwelt at Babylon: and my spirit was sore moved, so that I began to speak fearful words to the most highest, and said: O' Lord, Lord, thou spakest at the beginning, when thou planted the earth ( and that thyself alone) and gavest commandment unto the people, and a body unto Adam, which was a creature of thy hands, and hast breathed in him the breath of life: and so he lived before thee, and thou leadest him into paradise, which garden of pleasure thy right hand had planted, or ever the earth was made. And unto him thou gavest the commandment to love thy ways, which he transgressed, and immediately thou appointedest death in him, and in his generations. Of him came nations, tribes, people and kindreds out of number. And every people walked after their own will, and did nice things before thee: and as for thy commandments, they despised them.
But in process of time thou broughtest the water flood, upon those that dwelt in the world, and destroyed them. And like as the death was in Adam, so was the water flood also in these. Nevertheless one of them thou leftest: namely Noe with his household, of whom came all righteous men. And it happened that when they that dwell upon the earth, began to multiply, and had gotten many children, and were a great people, they began to be more ungodly than the first.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 13
Then said he: What is the kingdom of God like? or whereto shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his garden: and it grew and waxed a great tree, and the fowls of the air made nests in the branches of it.
And again he said: whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God? It is like leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three bushels of flour, till all was through leavened. And he went through all manner of cities and towns teaching, and journeying towards Jerusalem. Then said one unto him: Lord, are there few that shall be saved? And he said unto them: strive with your selves to enter in at the strait gate: For many I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
are there few that shall be saved? ...
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 18
When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden into the which he entered with his disciples. Judas also which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus often times resorted thither with his disciples. Judas then after he had received a bond of men, and ministers of the high Priests and Pharisees, came thither with lanterns and firebrands and weapons. Then Jesus knowing all things that should come on him, went forth and said unto them: whom seek ye? They answered him: Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus said unto them: I am he. Judas also which betrayed him, stood with them. But as soon as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backwards and fell to the ground. And he asked them again: whom seek ye? They said: Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered: I said unto you, I am he. If ye seek me, let these go their way. That the saying might be fulfilled which he spake: of them which thou gavest me, have I not lost one.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 51
Hearken to me, ye that hold of righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: Take heed unto the stone, whereout ye are hewn, and to the grave whereout ye are digged. Consider Abraham your father, and Sara that bare you: how that I called him alone, and prospered him well, and increased him: how the Lord comforted Sion, and repaired all her decay: making her desert as a Paradise, and making her wilderness as the garden of the Lord. Mirth and joy was there, thanksgiving, and the voice of praise. Have respect unto me then, O my people, and lay thine ear to me: for a law and an ordinance shall go from me, to lighten the Gentiles. It is hard by, that my health and my righteousness shall go forth, and the people shall be ordered with mine arm.
The Islands ( that is the Gentiles ) shall hope in me, and put their trust in mine arm. Lift up your eyes toward heaven, and look upon the earth beneath. For the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall tear like a cloth, and they that dwell therein, shall perish in like manner. But my health endureth for ever, and my righteousness shall not cease. Therefore hearken unto me, ye that have pleasure in righteousness, thou people that bearest my law in their heart. Fear not the curse of men, be not afraid of their blasphemes and revilings: For the worms and moth shall eat them up like cloth and wool. But my righteousness shall endure for ever, and my saving health from generation to generation. Wake up, wake up, and be strong: O thou arm of the Lord: wake up, like as in times past, ever and since the world began.
Art thou not *he, that hast wounded that proud lucifer, and hewn the dragon in pieces? Art not thou even he, which hath dried up the deep of the sea, which hast made plain the sea ground, that the delivered might go through? That the redeemed of the Lord, which turned again, might come with joy unto Sion, there to endure for ever? That mirth and gladness might be with them: that sorrow and woe might flee from them? Yee I, I am even he, that in all things giveth you consolation. What art thou then, that fearest a mortal man, the child of man, which goeth away as doeth the flower? And forgetest the Lord that made thee, that spread out the heavens, and laid the foundation of the earth. But thou art ever afraid for the sight of thine oppressor, which is ready to do harm: Where is the wrath of the oppressor? It cometh on fast, it maketh hast to appear: It shall not perish, that it should not be able to destroy, neither shall it fail for fault of nourishing. I am the Lord thy God, that make the sea to be still, and to rage: whose name is the Lord of Hosts. I shall put my word in thy mouth, and defend thee with the turning of my hand: that thou mayest plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Sion: Thou art my people.
Awake, awake, and stand up, O Jerusalem, thou that from the hand of the Lord, hast drunken out the cup of his wrath: thou that hast supped of, and sucked out the slumbering cup to the bottom. For among all the sons whom thou hast begotten, there is not one that may hold thee up: and not one to lead thee by the hand, of all the sons that thou hast nourished. Both these things are happened unto thee, but who is sorry for it. Yee, destruction, wasting, hunger and sword: but who hath comforted thee? Thy sons lie comfortless at the head of every street like a taken *venison, and are full of that terrible wrath of the Lord, and punishment of thy God. And therefore thou miserable and drunken ( howbeit not with wine ) Hear this: Thus saith thy Lord: thy Lord and God, the defender of his people: Behold, I will take the slumbering cup out of thy hand, even the cup with the dregs of my wrath: that from henceforth thou shalt never drink it any more, and will put it in their hand they that trouble thee: which have spoken to thy soul: stoop down, that we may go over thee: make thy body even with the ground, and as the street to go upon
Art thou not *he, that hast wounded that proud lucifer, and hewn the dragon in pieces? (kjv and other bibles of man =leave out this entire line)
*venison = game meat, this is to say, these sons feel like they are the "game meat" of the oppressors as prey of the powerfull. RN
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 65
They shall seek me, that hitherto have not asked for me, they shall find me, that hitherto have not sought me. Then shall I say immediately to the people that never called upon my name: I am here, I am here. For thus long have I ever holden out my hands to an unfaithful people, that go not in the right way, but after their own imaginations: To a people that is ever defying me to my face. They make their oblations in gardens, and their smoke upon altars of brick, they lurk among the graves, and lie in the dens all night. They eat swine flesh, and unclean broth in their vessels. If thou comest nye them, they say: touch me not, for I am holier than thou.
All these men when I am angry, shall be turned to smoke and fire, that shall burn for ever. Behold, it is written before my face, and shall not be forgotten, but recompensed. I shall reward it them into their bosom: I mean your misdeeds, and the misdeeds of your fathers together ( saith the Lord ) which have made their smokes upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their old deeds into their bosom again. Moreover thus saith the Lord: like as when one would gather holy grapes, men say unto him: break it not off for it is holy: even so will I do also for my servants sakes, that I will not destroy them all. But I will take a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah one, to take possession of my hill. My chosen shall possess these things, and my servants shall dwell there. Saron shall be a sheepfold, and the valley of Achor shall give the stalling for the cattle of my people, that fear me. But as for you, ye are they, that have forsaken the Lord, and forgotten my holy hill. Yee have set up an altar to fortune, and given rich drink offerings unto treasure. Therefore will I number you with the sword, that ye shall be destroyed all together. For when I called, no man gave me answer: when I spake, ye hearkened not unto me, but did wickedness before mine eyes, and chose the thing that pleased me not.
Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall have hunger. Behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall suffer thirst. Behold, my servants shall be merry, but ye shall be confounded. Behold, my servants shall rejoice for very quietness of heart: But ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and complain for vexation of mind. Your name shall not be sworn by among my chosen, for God the Lord shall slay you, and call his servants by another name. Whoso rejoiceth upon the earth, shall rejoice in the true God: And whoso sweareth upon the earth, shall swear in the true God. For the old enmity shall be forgotten, and taken away out of my sight. For lo, I shall make a new heaven, and a new earth. And as for the old, they shall never be thought upon, ner kept in mind: but men shall be glad and evermore rejoice, for the things, that I shall do.
For why? Behold, I shall make a joyful Jerusalem, yee I myself will rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad with my people: And the voice of weeping and wailing shall not be heard in her from thenceforth. There shall never be child nor old man, that have not their full days. But when the child cometh to an hundred years old, it shall die. And if he that is an hundred years of age do wrong, he shall be cursed. They shall build houses, and dwell in them: they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another possess: they shall not plant, and another eat: But the life of my people shall be like a tree, and so shall the work of their hands.
My chosen shall live long, they shall not labor in vain, ner beget with trouble: for they are the high blessed seed of the Lord, and their fruits with them. And it shall be, that or ever they call, I shall answer them. While they are yet but thinking how to speak, I shall hear them. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat hay like the bullock. But earth shall be the serpents meat. There shall no man hurt nor slay another, in all my holy hill, sayeth the Lord
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.
For as touching the city and the temple, I hear the voice of the Lord, that will reward, and recompense his enemies: like as when a wife bringeth forth a man child, or ever she suffer the pain of the birth and anguish of the travail. Who ever heard or saw such things? doth the ground bare in one day? or are the people born all at once, as Sion beareth her sons? For thus sayeth the Lord: Am I he that maketh other to beare, and beare not myself? Am not I he that beareth, and maketh barren? sayeth thy God. Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her. Be joyful with her, all ye that mourned for her. For ye shall suck comfort out of her breasts, and be satisfied. Ye shall taste, and have delight in the plenteousness of her power. For thus saith the Lord: behold, I will let peace into her, like a water flood, and the might of the Heathen like a flowing stream. Then shall thee suck, ye shall be born upon her sides, and be joyful upon her knees. For like as a child is comforted of his mother, so shall I comfort you, and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem. And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb.
Thus shall the hand of the Lord be known among his servants, and his indignation among his enemies. For behold, the Lord will come with fire, and his chariot shall be like a whirlwind, that he may recompense his vengeance in his wrath and indignation with flame of fire. For the Lord shall judge all flesh with the fire and with his sword, and there shall be a great number slain of the Lord. Such as have made themselves holy and clean in gardens, and those that have eaten swines flesh, mice, and other abominations, shall be taken away together, sayeth the Lord. For I will come to gather all people and tongues with their works and imaginations: these shall come, and see my glory. Unto them shall I give a token, and send certain of them ( that be delivered ) among the Gentiles: into Celicia, *Atrica and Lidia (where men can handle bows ) into *Italye also and Greek land.
The isles far off, that have not heard speak of me, and have not seen my glory, shall preach my praise among the Gentiles and shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the Lord, out of all the people upon horses, chariots and horse litters, upon Mules and carts to Jerusalem my holy hill ( sayeth the Lord ) like as the children of Israel bring the offering in clean vessels, to the house of the Lord.
And I shall take out certain of them for to be priests and levites, sayeth the Lord. For like as the new heaven and the new earth which I will make, shall be fast established by me: ( sayeth the Lord ) So shall your seed and your name continue and there shall be a new Moon for the other, and a new Sabbath for the other, and all flesh shall come to worship before me ( sayeth the Lord ) And they shall go forth and look upon the *carions of them that have transgressed against me. For their worms shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched, and all flesh shall abhor them
*Atrica (Africa?) *Italye (Italy) *carions (dead bodies)
THE SECOND EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 3
This is the second epistle that I now write unto you, beloved, wherewith I stir up, and warn your pure minds, to call to remembrance the words which were told before of the holy Prophets, and also the commandment of us the Apostles of the Lord and saviour.
This first understand that there shall come in the last days mockers, which will walk after their own lusts and say, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers died, all things continue in the same estate wherein they were at the beginning. This they know not (and that willingly) how that the heavens a great while ago were, and the earth that was in the water, appeared up out of the water, by the word of God: by the which things the world that then was, perished, overflowen with the water. But the heavens verily and earth which are now, are kept by the same word in store, and reserved unto fire, against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
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.
Nevertheless the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in the which day, the heavens shall perish with terrible noise, and the elements shall melt with heat, and the earth with the works that are therein shall burn.
If all these things shall perish, what manner persons ought ye to be in holy conversation and godliness: looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, in which the heavens shall perish with fire, and the elements shall be consumed with heat. Nevertheless we look for a new heaven and a new earth, according to his promise, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Wherefore dearly beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot and undefiled. And suppose that the long suffering of the Lord is salvation, even as our dearly beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given unto him, wrote to you, yee, almost in every epistle speaking of such things: among which are many things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable, pervert, as they do other scriptures unto their own destruction. Ye therefore beloved, seeing ye know it beforehand, beware lest ye be also plucked away with the error of the wicked, and fall from your own steadfastness: but grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. To whom be glory both now and for ever. Amen
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 21
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven, and the first earth were vanished away, and there was no more sea. And I John saw that holy city new Jerusalem come down from God out of heaven prepared as a bride garnished for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying: behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them. And they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow neither crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the old things are gone. And he that sat upon the seat, said. Behold I make all things new. And he said unto me: write, for these words are faithful and true.
And he said unto me: it is done, I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him that is a thirst of the well of the water of life, free. He that overcometh, shall inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
And there came unto me one of the seven Angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues: and talked with me saying: come hither, I will show thee the bride, the lambs wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and an high mountain, and he showed me the great city, holy Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God, having the brightness of God. And her shining was like unto a stone most precious, even a Jasper clear as Crystal: and had walls great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve Angels: and names written, which are the twelve tribes of Israel: on the East part three gates, and on the North side three gates, and towards the South three gates, and from the west three gates: and the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the lambs twelve apostles.
And he that talked with me, had a golden reed to measure the city with all and the gates thereof and the wall thereof. And the city was built four square and the length was as large as the breadth of it, and he measured the city with the reed twelve thousand furlongs: and the length and the breadth, and the height of it, were equal. And he measured the wall thereof an hundred and forty four cubits: the measure that the angel had was after the measure that man useth. And the building of the wall of it was of Jasper. And the city was pure gold like unto clear glass and the foundations of the wall of the city was garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was Jasper, the second Sapphire, the third a Chalcedony, the fourth an Emerald: the fifth Sardonyx: the sixth Sardeos: the seventh Chrysolite: the eighth Berall: the ninth a Topas: the tenth a Crysoprasos: the eleventh a Jacincte: the twelfth an Amatist.
The twelve gates were twelve pearls, every gate was of one pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, as through shining glass. And there was no temple therein. For the Lord God almighty and the lamb are the temple of it. and the city hath no need of the *son neither of the moon to lighten it. For the brightness of God did light it: and the lamb was the light of it. And the people which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth shall bring their glory unto it. And the gates of it are not shut by day. For there shall be no night there. And there shall enter into it none unclean thing: neither what soever worketh abomination or maketh lies: but they only which are written in the lambs book of life
*son: exactly as it appears; sonne other places see that sun was spelled sunne in the original.
