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 blessed 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 take and show like on the plain of the earth...
and there were a few peoples ...
and the few were gathered together as though on the threshold of seeing ...
and i wondered a mighty wonder at the being ...being shown these...
and an answer was given me without words of speaking.
and the words were the most precious.
and Lord Jesus came to remembrance.
and that he had given his life that we might have life and living and being.
and the giving of life for others: most precious came like a river flowing through my consciousness ...
and scripture came back to remembrance...
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. JOHN Chpt 3
Hereby perceive we love: that he gave his life for us: and therefore ought we also to give our lives for the brethren. Whosoever hath this worlds *good and seeth his brother have need: and shutteth up his compassion from him: how dwelleth the love of God in him? My babes, let us not love in word, neither in tongue: but with deed and in verity: for thereby we know that we are of the verity, and can before him quiet our hearts. But if our hearts condemn us, God is greater than our hearts, and knoweth all things. Beloved, if our hearts condemn us not, then have we trust to God ward: and whatsoever we ask we shall receive of him: because we keep his commandments, and do those things which are pleasing in his sight.*son: exactly as it appears; sonne other places see that sun was spelled sunne in the original
And this is his commandment, that we believe on the name of his son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave commandment. And he that keepeth his commandments, dwelleth in him, and he in him: and thereby we know that there abideth in us of the spirit which he gave us
THE LAMENTATIONS OF JEREMIAH Chpt 4
The children of Zion that were always in honor, and clothed with the most precious gold: how are they now become like the earthen vessels which be made with the potters hand.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 18
And after that, I saw another Angel come from heaven, having great power, and the earth was lightened with his brightness. And he cried mightily with a strong voice saying: Great Babylon is fallen, is fallen: and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of all foul spirits, and a cage of all unclean and hateful birds for all nations have drunken of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and her merchants are waxed rich of the abundance of her pleasures.
And I heard another voice from heaven, say: come away from her my people, that ye be not partakers in her sins, that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins are gone up to heaven, and God hath remembered her wickedness. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and give her double according to her works. And pour in double to her in the same cup which she filled unto you. And as much as she glorified herself and lived wantonly so much pour ye in for her of punishment and sorrow, for she said in her heart: I sit being a queen and am no widow and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come at one day, death, and sorrow, and hunger, and she shall be burnt with fire: for strong is the Lord God which judgeth her.
And the kings of the earth shall beweep her and wail over her, which have committed fornication with her, and have lived wantonly with her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, and shall stand afar off, for fear of her punishment, saying . Alas, Alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city: for at one hour is her judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and wail in themselves, for no man will buy their ware any more, the ware of gold and silver, and precious stones, neither of pearl, and raynes and purple, and scarlet, and all thine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass and of iron, and cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and bodies and souls of men.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 21
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
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 20
And he beheld them and said: what meaneth this then that is written: The stone that the builders refused, the same is made the head corner stone? Whosoever stumble at that stone shall be broken: but on whosoever it fall upon, it will grind him to powder. And the high priests and the scribes the same hour went about to lay hands on him, but they feared the people. For they perceived that he had spoken this similitude against them.
TO THE EPHESIANS Chpt 2
Wherefore remember that ye being in time past gentiles in the flesh, and were called uncircumcision to them which are called circumcision in the flesh, which circumcision is made by hands: Remember I say, that ye were at that time without Christ, and were reputed aliens from the common wealth of Israel, and were strangers from the testaments of promise, and had no hope, and were without God in this world. But now in Christ Jesu, ye which a while ago were far off, are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
For he is our peace, which hath made of both one, and hath broken down the wall that was a stop between us, and hath also put away through his flesh, the cause of hatred, that is to say, the law of commandments contained in the law written, for to make of *twain one new man in himself, so making peace: and to reconcile both unto God in one body through his cross, and slew hatred thereby: and came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have an open way in, in one spirit unto the father.
Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners: but citizens with the saints, and of the household of God: and are built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ being the head corner stone, in whom every building coupled together, groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord, in whom ye also are built together, and made an habitation for God in the spirit
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 2
Wherefore lay aside all *maliciousness and all *guile, and dissimulation, and envy, and all backbiting: and as new born babes, desire that reasonable milk, which is without corruption, that ye may be grown therin. If so be that ye have tasted how pleasant the Lord is, to whom ye come as unto a living stone disallowed of men, but chosen of God and precious: and ye as living stones, are made a spiritual house, and an holy priesthood for to offer up spiritual sacrifice, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Wherefore it is contained in the scripture: behold I put in Sion an head corner stone, elect and precious: and he that believeth on him, shall not be ashamed. Unto you therefore which believe, he is precious: but unto them which believe not, the stone which the builders refused, the same is made the head stone in the corner, and a stone to stumble at, and a rock to offend them which stumble at the word, and believe not that whereon they were set. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, and a peculiar people, that ye should show the vertues of him that called you out of darkness into his marvelous light, which in time past were not a people, yet are now the people of God: which were not under mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which fight against the soul, and see that ye have honest conversation among the Gentiles, that they which backbite you as evil doers, may see your good works and praise God in the day of visitation.
Submit yourselves unto all manner ordinance of man for the Lords sake, whether it be unto the King as unto the chief head: *other unto rulers, as unto them that are sent of him, for the punishment of evil doers: but for the *laud of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that ye put to silence the ignorance of the foolish men: as free, and not as having the liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but even as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love brotherly fellowship. Fear God and honour the king.
Servants obey your masters with all fear, not only if they be good and courteous: but also though they be *froward. For it is thankworthy if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For what praise is it, if when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye take it patiently? But and if when ye do well, ye suffer wrong and take it patiently, then is there thank with God.
For hereunto verily were ye called: for Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example that ye should follow his steps, which did no sin, neither was there guile found in his mouth: which when he was reviled, reviled not again: when he suffered, he threatened not: but committed the cause to him that judgeth righteously, which his own self bare our sins in his body on the tree, that we should be delivered from sin and should live in righteousness. By whose stripes ye were healed. For ye were as sheep going astray: but are now returned unto the shepherd and bishop of your souls
*maliciousness (unkindness against another) *guile(deception), *other (or)
*laud (honor) *froward: stubborn, contrary, disobedient
