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 people ...
and the people were in a very hard place ...
and there were high hard thick walls all roundabout them ...
and hard heavy doors made to make them stay where they were put ...
and the the place was ill kept filthy and things breaking down ...all the time ....
and was like a prison ...
and the prison was kept by famous people ...
even the people that the other prisoner people watched and followed...
and thought and did what the famous people did ...or pretended to do ...
and all the works were like a cheap pawn shop ...in the midst of a junk yard ...
and the people were charged ...to do what they were ...shown ...to do ...
and what they were moved to do ...
and what they were expected to do ...
and think and say ...and believe ...
and the people lost their way ...
and could not find which...way to go ...
even with their cunning devices that told them ...wheresoever they ...should go ...
and the waters within the place were poison ...
and the poison waters made all sick ...causing redness to appear ...in their flesh ...
and poisoned waters of the world ...killed subtly ...
and again all was like a dark dread junk heap ...a junkyard of cars and things ...
and concrete walls and high metal sheets ...
and barbed wire with hooks ...on the ...top ...if any tried to get ...over...it ...
nevertheless as i stood there looking over the wretched waste ...there came music to my hearing ...
and i turned my head to the music ...
and it was a sing of the gospel to God our father and Jesus our brother and Lord.
even from the heart ...in spirit and truth ...
and was like old Negro spirituals ...of former...slaves ...
Yet were now bold men singing loudly ...
and others entered in ...regardless of color ...and began to sing also ...
even of the same heart.
even in spirit and truth.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE PSALMS Chpt 33
Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous, for it becometh well the just to be thankful.
Praise the Lord with harp: sing songs unto him with the *lute and an instrument of ten strings.
Sing him a new song, yee sing *lustfully unto him, and with good courage.
For the word of the Lord is true, and all his works are faithful.
He loveth mercy and judgment, the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, and all the Hosts of them by the breath of his mouth. He gathereth the waters together as it were in a bottle, and layeth up the deep in secret.
Let all the earth fear the Lord, and let all them that dwell in the world, stand in awe of him. For look what he sayeth, it is done: and look what he commanded, it standeth fast.
The Lord bringeth the counsel of the Heathen to nought, and turneth devices of the people.
THE PSALMS Chpt 40
I waited patiently for the Lord, which inclined himself unto me: and heard my calling. He brought me out of the horrible pit, out of the mire and clay: he set my feet upon the rock, and ordered my goings. He hath put a new song in my mouth, even a thanksgiving unto our God. Many men seeing this, shall fear the Lord, and put their trust in him. Blessed is the man that setteth his hope in the Lord, and turneth not to the proud, and to such as go about with lies.
THE PSALMS Chpt 96
O' sing unto the Lord a new song, sing unto the Lord all the whole earth. Sing unto the Lord, and praise his name, be telling of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his honor among the Heathen, and his wonders among all people. For the Lord is great, and *can not worthily be praised: he is more to be feared then all gods. As for all the gods of the Heathen, they be put Idols, but it is the Lord that made the heavens.
Thanksgiving and worship are before him, power and honor are in his Sanctuary.
Ascribe unto the Lord ( O ye kindreds of the Heathen ) ascribe unto the Lord worship and strength. Ascribe unto the Lord the honor of his name, *bring presents, and come into his courts.
O' worship the Lord in the *beauty of holiness, let the whole earth stand in awe of him.
Tell it among the Heathen, that the Lord is King: and it is he that maketh the round world so fast, that it can not be moved, and how he shall judge the people righteously.
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad: let the sea make a noise, yee and all that therin is. Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it, let all the trees of the wood leap for joy.
Before the Lord, for he cometh: for he cometh to judge the earth: yee with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with his truth.
*kjv and other bibles of man: *KJ = greatly to be praised, and KJ = *bring an offering. See this plainly if our father is all spiritual, what presents could we offer except those things pleasing to his heart and spirit. Also, come into the judgement of God, not men. RN. See Psalms 86, where holiness is trusting in the Lord, RN
THE PSALMS Chpt 98
O' sing unto the Lord a new song, for he hath done marvelous things.
With his own right hand and his holy arm hath he gotten the victory.
The Lord hath declared his saving health, and his righteousness hath he openly showed in the sight of the Heathen.
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.
THE PSALMS Chpt 149
O' sing unto the Lord a new song, and let the congregation of saints praise him. Let Israel rejoice in him that made him, and let the children of Sion be joyful in their King. Let them praise his name in the dance, let them sing praises unto him with tabretts and harps.
For the Lord hath pleasure in his people, and helpeth the meek hearted.
Let the saints be joyful with glory, let them rejoice in their beds.
Let the praises of God be in their mouth, and sharp swords in their hands.
To be avenged of the Heathen, and to rebuke the people.
To bind their Kings in chains, and their nobles with links of iron.
That they may be avenged of them, as it is written, such honor have all his saints.
Praise the everlasting.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 42
Behold now therefore, this is my servant whom I will keep to myself: mine elect, In whom my soul shall be pacified. I will give him my spirit, that he may show forth judgement and equity among the Gentiles. He shall not be an out crier, nor an high minded person. His voice shall not be heard in the streets. A bruised reed he shall not break, and a smoking flax shall he not quench: but faithfully and truly he shall give judgement. He shall neither be over seen or hasty, that he may restore righteousness unto the earth: and the Gentiles shall also keep his laws. For thus sayeth God the Lord unto him ( even he that that made heavens, and spread them abroad and set forth the earth with her increase: which giveth breath unto the people that is in it, and to them that dwell therin ) I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and led thee by the hand. Therefore I will also defend thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, and to be the light of the Gentiles. That thou mayest open the eyes of the blind, let out the prisoners, and them that sit in darkness, out of the dungeon house. I my self, whose name is the Lord, which gave my power to none other, neither mine honor to the Gods: show you these new tidings, and tell you them or they come, for old things also are come to pass.
Sing therefore unto the Lord, a new song of thanks giving, blow out his praise unto the end of the world. They that be upon the sea, and all that is therin, praise him, the Isles and they that dwell in them. Let the wilderness with her cities lift up her voice, the towns also that be in cedar. Let them be glad that sit upon rocks of stone, and let them cry down from the high mountains: ascribing almightiness unto the Lord, and magnifying him among the Gentiles. The Lord shall come forth as a giant, and take a stomach to himself as a fresh man of war. He shall roar and cry, and overcome his enemies.
I have long time holden my peace, ( sayeth the Lord ) should I therefore be still, and keep silence for ever? I will cry like a travailing woman, and once will I destroy, and devour. I will make waste both mountain and hill, and dry up every green thing that groweth theron. I will dry up the floods of water, and drink up the rivers. I will bring the blind into the street, that they know not: and lead them in to such a foot path that they are ignorant in. I shall make darkness light before them, and the thing that is crooked to be straight. These things will I do, and not forget them. And therefore let them convert, and be ashamed earnestly, that hope in Idols, and say to fashioned images: ye are our gods.
Hear, O ye deaf men, and sharpen your sights to see ( O ye blind ) But who is blinder than my servant? Or so deaf, as my messengers, whom I send unto thee? For who is so blind as my people, and they that have the rule of them? They are like, as if they understoodest much, and keepest nothing: or if one heard well, but were not obedient. The Lord be merciful unto them for his righteousness sake, that his word might be magnified and praised. But it is a mischievous and wicked people. Their young men belong all unto the snare, and shall be shut into prison houses. They shall be carried away captive, and no man shall loose them. They shall be trodden under foot, and no man shall labor to bring them again. But who is he among you, that pondereth this in his mind, that considereth it, and taketh it for a warning in time to come?
Who suffered Jacob to be trodden under foot, and Israel to be spoiled? Did not the Lord? Now have we sinned against him, and have had no delight to walk in his ways, neither been obedient unto his law. Therefore hath he poured upon us his wrathful displeasure, and strong battle, which maketh us to have to do on every side, yet will we not understand: He burneth us up, yet sinketh it not in to our hearts
Sing therefore unto the Lord, a new song of thanks giving, blow out his praise unto...the end of the world.
JUDITH or JEHUDITH Chpt 16
Then sung Judith this song unto the Lord: Began unto the Lord upon tabernettes, sing unto the Lord upon the cymbals. O' sing unto him a new song of thanksgiving, be joyful and call upon his name. It is the Lord that destroyeth wars, even the Lord is his name. Which hath pitched his tents in the midst of his people, that he might deliver us from the hand of all our enemies. Assur came out of the mountains in the multitude of his strength. His people stopped the water brooks, and their horses covered the valleys. He purposed to have burnt up my land, and to slay my young men with the sword.
He would have carried away my children and virgins into captivity, but the Allmighty Lord hurt him, and delivered him into the hands of a woman, which brought him to confusion. For their mighty was not destroyed of young men. It was not the sons of Titan that slew him, neither have the great giants set themselves against him: but Judith the daughter of Merari with her fair beauty hath discomfited him, and brought him to naught. For she layed away her widows garment, and put on the apparel of gladness in the rejoicing of the children of Israel. She anointed her face, and bound up her hair in a *hoove to beguile him. Her slippers ravished his eyes, her beauty captivated his mind, with the sword she smote off his neck. The Persians were astonished at her steadfastness, and the Medes at her boldness. Then howled the armies of the Assyrians, when my simple appeared dry of thirst. The sons of the daughters have pared them through, and slain them as fugitive children: they perished in the battle, for the very fear of the Lord my God. Let us sing a song of thanks giving unto the Lord, a new song of praise will we sing unto our God. Lord, Lord, thou art a great God, mighty in power, whom no man may overcome. All thy creatures should serve thee: for thou spakest but the word, and they were made: thou sentest thy spirit, and they were created, and no man can withstand thy voice. The mountains shall move from the foundations with the waters, the stoney rocks shall melt before thee like wax. But they that fear thee: shall be great with thee in all things. Woe unto the people that rise up against my generation, for the Almighty Lord will avenge himself of them, and in the day of judgement will he visit them. For he shall give fire and worms in to their flesh, that they may burn an feel it forevermore.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 5
And I saw in the right hand of him, that sat in the throne, a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel which cried with a loud voice: Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven nor in earth neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look theron. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look theron.
And one of the elders said unto me: weep not: Behold a lion being of the tribe of Juda the root of David, hath obtained to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and lo in the midst of the seat, and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a lamb as though he had been killed, which had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the spirits of God, sent into all the world. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the seat.
And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and twenty four elders fell down before the lamb, having harps and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints and they sung a new song saying: thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast killed, and hast redeemed us by thy blood out of all kindreds, and tongues, and people, and nations, and hast made us unto our God, kings and priests and we shall reign on the earth.
And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels about the throne, and about the beasts and the elders, and I heard thousand thousands, saying with a loud voice: Worthy is the lamb that was killed to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. And all creatures, which are in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying: blessing, honour, glory, and power be unto him that sitteth upon the seat, and unto the lamb for evermore. And the four beasts said Amen. And the twenty four elders fell upon their faces, and worshipped him that liveth for evermore
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 14
And I looked, and lo a lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him a hundred and forty four thousand having his fathers name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the sound of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder. And I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps. And they sang as it were a new song, before the seat, and before the four beasts, and the elders, and no man could learn that song, but the hundred and forty four thousand which were redeemed from the earth. These are they, which were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These follow the lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from men being the first fruits unto God and to the lamb, and in their mouths was found no guile. For they are with out spot before the throne of God.
And I saw an angel fly in the midst of heaven having an everlasting gospel, to preach unto them that sit and dwell on the earth, and to all nations, kindreds, and tongues and people, saying with a loud voice: Fear God and give honour to him, for the hour of his judgement is come: and worship him, that made heaven and earth, and the sea, and fountains of water. And there followed another angel, saying: Babylon is fallen is fallen that great city, for she made all nations drink of the wine of her fornication.
And the third angel followed them saying with a loud voice: If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or on his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured in the cup of his wrath. And he shall be punished in fire and brimstone, before the holy angels, and before the lamb.
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up evermore. And they have no rest day nor night, which worship the beast and his image and whosoever receiveth the print of his name. Heare is the patience of saints. Heare are they that keep the commandments and the faith of *Jesu.
And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me: write: Blessed are the dead, which here after die in the Lord, even so saith the spirit: that they may rest from their labors, but their works shall follow them. And I looked and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sitting like unto the son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another Angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud. Thrust in thy sickle and reap for the time is come to reap, for the corn of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.
And another Angel came out of the temple, which is in heaven, having also a sharp sickle. And another Angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire, and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, and said: thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the earth, for her grapes are ripe. And the Angel thrust in his sickle on the earth: and cut down the grapes of the vineyard of the earth: and cast them into the great *winefat of the wrath of God, and the winefat was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the *fat, even unto the horse bridles by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs
*Jesu: Hebrew for Jesus *winefat, *fat; exact spelling, fat can mean from the best part of something or worse; in this case the best ( perfect ) of Godís wrath.
FIRST BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 25
And Isaac made intercession unto the Lord for his wife: because she was barren: and the Lord was entreated of him, and Rebecca his wife conceived: and the children strove together within her. Then she said: if it should go so to pass, what helpeth it that I am with child? And she went and asked the Lord. And the Lord said unto her: there are two manner of people in thy womb, and two nations shall spring out of thy bowels, and the one nation shall be mightier than the other, and the eldest shall be servant unto the younger.
And when her time was come to be delivered: behold there were two twins in her womb. And he that came out first was red and rough over all as it were an hide: and they called his name Esau. And afterward his brother came out, and his hand holding Esau by the heel. Wherefore his name was called Jacob. And Isaac was forty years old when she bare them: and the boys grew, and Esau became a cunning hunter and a tillman. But Jacob was a simple man, and dwelled in the tents. Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison, but Rebecca loved Jacob.
TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 12
Stretch forth therefore again the hands which were let down, and the weak knees, and see that ye have straight steps unto your feet, lest any halting turn out of the way: yee let it rather be healed. Embrace peace with all men and holiness: without the which, no man shall see the Lord. And look to, that no man be destitute of the grace of God, and that no root of bitterness spring up and trouble, and thereby many be defiled: and that there be no fornicator, or unclean person, as Esau, which for one breakfast sold his birthright. Ye know how that afterward when he would have inherited the blessing, he was put by, and he found no means to come thereby again: no though he desired it with tears.
ST. PAUL TO THE ROMANS Chpt 9
I speak not these things as though the words of God had taken none effect. For they are not all Israelites which came of Israel: neither are they all children straight way because they are the seed of Abraham. But in Isaac shall thy seed be called: that is to say, they which are the children of the flesh, are not the children of God. But the children of promise are counted the seed. For this is a word of promise, about this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son.*yer (before) *Osee (Oseas, Hosea) *Zodoma (Sodom)
Neither was it to with her only: but also when Rebecca was with child by one, I mean by our father Isaac, *yer the children were born, when they had neither done good neither bad: that the purpose of God which is by election, might stand, it was said unto her, not by the reason of works, but by grace of the caller: the elder shall serve the younger. As it is written: Jacob he loved, but Esau he hated. What shall we say then? is there any unrighteousness with God? God forbid. For he saith to Moses: I will show mercy to whom I show mercy: and will have compassion on whom I have compassion. So lieth it not then in a mans will or cunning, but in the mercy of God. For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh even for this same purpose have I stirred thee up, to show my power on thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the world. So hath he mercy on whom he will, and whom he will, he maketh hard hearted.
Thou wilt say then unto me: why then blameth he us yet? For who can resist his will? But O' man, what art thou which disputest with God? Shall the work say to the workman: why hast thou made me on this fashion? Hath not the potter power over the clay, even of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? Even so, God willing to show his wrath, and to make his power known, suffered with long patience the vessels of wrath, ordained to damnation, that he might declare the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had prepared unto glory: that is to say, us which he called, not of the Jewes only, but also of the gentiles. As he saith in *Osee: I will call them my people which were not my people: and her beloved which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said unto them, ye are not my people: that there shall be called the children of the living God.
But Esaias crieth concerning Israel, though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet shall a remnant be saved. He finisheth the word verily, and maketh it short in righteousness. For a short word will God make on earth. And as Esaias said before: Except the Lord of Saboth had left us seed, we had been made as *Zodoma, and had been likened to Gomorra.
