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 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 couple ...
and they were in a place where old things were kept ...
and things unused...
and thing from far in the past ...
and the wife picked up some old wall paper ...
and began to weep ...
and that for it was the wall ...the wall paper from a loved one long past ...
and the husband allowing that the wife was pity full ...
Yet saying you don't need to do this ...
and that for the loved one lives with God our father and Jesus our brother and Lord.
and that in spirit and truth.
and with that the husband comforted his wife ...
and lead her out of the room ...room of darkness ...
and that place where old unused things of the past ...were kept ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 8
When Jesus saw much people about him, he commanded to go over the water. And there came a Scribe and said unto him: Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus said unto him: the foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests, but the son of the man hath not whereon to rest his head. Another that was one of his Disciples said unto him: master, *suffer me first, to go and bury my father. But Jesus said unto him: follow me, and let the dead bury their dead.
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 14
For in the old time also, when the proud giants perished, he ( in whom the hope was left to increase the world ) went into the ship, which was governed through thy hand, and so left seed behind him unto the world. For happy is the tree where through righteousness cometh: but cursed is the image of wood, that is made with hands, yee both it and he that made it. He, because he made it: and it because it was called God, where as it is but a frail thing. For the ungodly and his ungodliness are both like abominable unto God. Even so the work and he that made it also shall be punished together. Therefore shall there a plague come upon the images of the Heathen: for out of the creature of God they are become an abomination, a temptation unto the souls of men, and a snare for the feet of the unwise. And why the seeking out of images is the beginning of whoredom, and the bringing up of them is the destruction of life. For they were not from the beginning, neither shall they continue forever. The wealthy idleness of men hath found them out upon the earth, therefore shall they come shortly to an end.
For a father mourned for his son that was taken away from him, he made an image ( in all the hast ) of his dead son: and so began to worship him as God, which was but a dead man, and *ordained his servants to offer unto him. Thus by process of time and through long custom, this error was kept as a law, and tyrants compelled men by violence to honor images. As for those that were so far off, that men might not worship them presently, their picture was brought from far, like the image of a King whom they would honor, to the intent that with great diligence they might worship him which was far off, as though he had been present. Again, the singular conning of the craftsman gave the ignorant also a great occasion to worship images. For the workman willing to do him a pleasure that set him a work, labored with all his conning to make the image of the best fashion. And so ( through the beauty of the work ) the common people was deceived, in so much that they took him now for a God, which alittle afore was honored as a man. And this was the error of mans life, when men ( either for to serve their own affection, or to do some pleasure unto Kings ) ascribed unto stones and stocks the name of God, which ought to be given unto no man.
Moreover, this was not enough for them that they erred in the knowledge of God: but where as they lived in the great wars of ignorance, those many and great plagues called they peace. For either they slew their own children, and offered them, or did sacrifice in the night season, or else held unreasonable watches: so that they kept neither life ner marriage clean: but either one slew another to death maliciously or else grieved his neighbor with *advoutry. And thus were all things mixed together: blood manslaughter, theft, dissimulation, corruption, unfaithfulness, sedition, perjury, disquietness of good men, unthankfulness, defiling of souls, changing of birth, unsteadfastness of marriage, misorder of *advoutry and uncleanness. And why? the honoring of abominable images is the cause, the beginning and end of all evil. For they worship Idols, either they are mad when they be merry, or prophesy lies, or live ungodly, or else lightly foreswear themselves. For in so much as their trust is in the Idols ( which have neither souls ner understanding ) though they swear falsely, yet they think it shall not hurt them.
Therefore cometh a great plague upon them, and that worthily: for they have an evil opinion of God, giving heed unto Idols, swearing unjustly to deceive, and despising righteousness. For their swearing is no virtue, but a plague of them that sin, and goeth ever with the offense of the ungodly
*ordened: ordained (ordered).
*advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God, being devoted to something or some one else. see James 2 for adultery
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 20
The morrow after the Sabothday, came Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and saw the stone taken away from the tomb. Then she ran, and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said unto them. They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we cannot tell where they have laid him. Peter went forth and that other disciple, and came unto the sepulchre. They ran both together, and that other disciple did out run Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he stooped down and saw the linen clothes lying, yet went he not in. Then came Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and saw the linen clothes lie, and the napkin that was about his head, not lying with the linen cloth, but wrapped together in a place by itself. Then went in also that other disciple which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw and believed. For as yet they knew not the scriptures that he should rise again from death. And the disciples went away again unto their own home.
Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping. And as she wept, she bowed herself into the sepulchre and saw two angels in white sitting, the one at the head and the other at the feet, where they had laid the body of Jesus. And they said unto her: woman why weepest thou? She said unto them: For they have taken away my Lord, and I *wot not where they have laid him. When she had thus said, she turned herself back and saw Jesus standing and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus said unto her: woman why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou? She supposing that he had been the gardener, said unto him. Sir if thou have borne him hence tell me where thou hast laid him, that I may fetch him. Jesus said unto her: Mary. She turned herself, and said unto him: Rabboni, which is to say master. Jesus said unto her, touch me not, for I am not yet ascended to my father. But go to my brethren and say unto them, I ascend unto my father and your father: to my God and your God. Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken such things unto her.
The same day at night, which was the morrow after the Saboth day, when the doors were shut, where the disciples were assembled together for fear of the Jewes, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and said to them: peace be with you. And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands, and his side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord. Then said Jesus to them again: peace be with you. As my father sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said that, he breathed on them and said unto them: Receive the holy ghost. Whosoevers sins ye remit they are remitted unto them. And whosoevers sins ye retain, they are retained.
But Thomas one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples said unto him: we have seen the Lord. And he said unto them: except I see in his hands the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. And after eight days again his disciples were with in, and Thomas with them. Then came Jesus when the doors were shut, and stood in the midst and said: peace be with you.
After that said he to Thomas: bring thy finger hither and see my hands, and bring thy hand and thrust it into my side, and be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered and said unto him: my Lord, and my God. Jesus said unto him: Thomas, because thou hast seen me, therefore thou believest: Happy are they that have not seen, and yet believe.
And many other signs did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. These are written that ye might believe, that Jesus is Christ the son of God, and that in believing ye might have life through his name
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 23
Then spake Jesus to the people, and to his disciples saying: The Scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses seat. All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do: but after their works do not: For they say, and do not. Ye, and they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on mens shoulders: but they themselves will not heave at them with one of their fingers. All their works they do, for to be seen of men. They set abroad their *phylacteries, and make large borders on their garments, and love to sit uppermost at feasts and to have the chief seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets, and to be called of men Rabbi.
But ye shall not *suffer yourselves to be called Rabbi. For one is your master, that is to *wit Christ, and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth, for there is but one your father, and he is in heaven. Be not called masters, for there is but one your master, and he is Christ. He that is greatest among you, shall be your servant. But whosoever exalteth himself, shall be brought low. And he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted. *Woe be unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven before men: ye yourselves go not in, neither suffer ye them that come, to enter in.
Woe be unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: ye devour widows houses: and that under a colour of praying long prayers wherefore ye shall receive greater damnation.
Woe be unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, which compass sea and land, to bring one in to your belief: and when he is brought, ye make him two fold more the child of hell, than ye yourselves are.
Woe be unto you blind guides, which say whosoever swear by the temple: it is nothing: but whosoever swear by the gold of the temple, he offendeth. Ye fools and blind: whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? And whosoever sweareth by the altar, it is nothing: but whosoever sweareth by the offering that lieth on the altar, offendeth. Ye fools and blind: whether is greater the offering, or the altar which sanctifieth the offering? Whosoever therefore sweareth by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all that thereon is. And whosoever sweareth by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. And he that sweareth by heaven, sweareth by the seat of God and by him that sitteth thereon.
Woe be to you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, which tithe mint, annise and cummin, and leave the weightier matters of the law undone: judgement, mercy, and faith. These ought ye to have done, and not to have left the other undone. Ye blind guides which strain out a gnat and swallow a camel.
Woe be to you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, which make clean the outer side of the cup, and of the platter: but within they are full of bribery and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first, the inside of the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
Woe be to you Scribes and Pharisees hypocrites, for ye are like unto painted tombs which appear beautiful outward: but are within full of dead bones and of all filthiness. So are ye, for outward ye appear righteous unto men, when within, ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Woe be unto you Scribes and Pharisees hypocrites: ye build the tombs of the Prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, and say: If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partners with them in the blood of the Prophets. So then ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the Prophets. Fulfil ye likewise the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents and generation of vipers, how should ye scape the damnation of hell?
Wherefore, behold I send unto you, prophets, wise men and scribes, and of them ye shall kill and crucify: and of them ye shall scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city, that upon you may come all the righteous blood that was shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel, unto the blood of Zacharias the son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, all these things shall light upon this generation. Jerusalem, Jerusalem which killest Prophets, and stonest them which are sent to thee: how often would I have gathered thy children together, as the hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, but ye would not: Behold your habitation shall be left unto you desolate. For I say to you, ye shall not see me henceforth, till that ye say: blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord
*phylacteries: either of two leather pouches containing scriptures, one worn on the left arm, the other on the forehead, by these Scribes or Pharisees. *suffer (allow)
*wit (know) *Woe: this woe and the following appear as "bold type" in the text.
THE SECOND TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 11
If the truth of Christ be in me, this rejoicing shall not be taken from me in the regions of Achaia. Wherefore? Because I love you not? God knoweth. Nevertheless what I do, that will I do, to cut away occasion from them which desire occasion, that they might be found like unto us in that wherein they rejoice. For these false apostles are deceitful workers, and fashion them selves like unto the Apostles of Christ. And no marvel, for Satan himself is changed into the fashion of an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing, though his ministers fashion them selves as though they were the ministers of righteousness: whose end shall be according to their deeds.
THE SECOND TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 3
This understand, that in the last days shall come parlous times. For the men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, cursed speakers, disobedient to father and mother, unthankful, unholy, unkind, trucebreakers, stubborn, false accusers, rioters, fierce despisers of them which are good, traitors, heady, high minded, greedy upon voluptuousness more then lovers of God, having a similitude of Godly living, but have denied the power thereof: and such abhor. Of this sort are they which enter into houses, and bring into bondage women laden with sin, which women are led of *diverse lusts, ever learning and never able to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
*diverse (various dogmas and doctrines contrary to the truth of God)
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 16
Jesus then said to his disciples. If any man will follow me let him forsake himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whosoever will save his life, shall *loose it. And whosoever shall *loose his life for my sake, shall find it. What shall it profit a man, though he should win all the whole world if he *loose his own soul? Or else what shall a man give to redeem his soul again with all? For the son of man shall come in the glory of his father, with his angels: and then shall he reward every man according to his deeds. Verily I say unto you, some there be among them that here stand, which shall not taste of death, till they shall have seen the son of man come in his kingdom.
*loosest: open from the Hebrew (see below) same word. lowsed: exactly as it is written. low from the Hebrew is "humbled"
*loose: exactly as it appears: loose from the Hebrew is to "open".
