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 man.
and the man had moved into a new house on a high hill ...or so he thought.
and from the mans house on the high hill...he imagined that he could see the whole world.
even seeing all roundabout ...
and the color of the house was flesh.
and was in a gated...sub...division.
NOW the man was in his house ...
and quite comfortable ...
and there came a knock at the door ...the door to his house...
and the man went to open his door ...to his house.
and there was a group of people there ...
and they were all smiles and warm and friendly looking ...
and there was an inviting welcoming by the people at his front door ...
and the man ...thought...oh my these people are so friendly ...
and the man invited them into ...his house...
and the people came ...through the door he opened ...and into his house...
and the people spoke highly of the mans ...high house ...
and praised him for the worthy works ...within his own house...
and the man was so pleased and proud and taken in with what the people said ...that he invited ...them to sit with his at his table ...
and to share of his food and drink ...
and the people who were invited ...within ...the mans house ...sat at his table ...and smiled warmly ...
and when the food was served ...and drinks were drunk ...the man began to ask ...of the purpose of their coming to his house.
and the of the invited in people a man began to talk ...
and the other men and women smiled and nodded as the leader man of the invited in group ...spoke ...
and the leader said we are of the local church ...as he drew out a bible of religiousness ...
and the man whose house it was looked at the fine leather binding ...binding ...of the book ...the bible of religiousness.
and the man looked at the gold embossing ...am bossing ...of the words stamped into ...the fine fleshly leather ...of the book ...the bible of religiousness...
and the leader of the local church ...went on to proudly say that there are many ...many others...of the sub division ...members of the church.
NOW the man thought he should not offend ...these wonder full warn and friendly people...
and so the man thanked the people he invited into his house ...
and said that he would consider their offer ...
Nevertheless he had things he must do at the moment ...
and that he would get together with them at another time ...
and they all nodded and smiled and thanked each other for their courtesy and kindness and warmly treating of each other ...
and as the man opened the door to his house ...for them to come in ...so he opened the door so the power full proud self right ...righteous religious ...could leave ...
and again and again he thank every each one as they passed him ...going out the door ...
and the man thought about the warm welcoming smiles and the invitation to be part of the the church.
and as the last person to leave was a fair to look upon young woman ...did the man smile upon her.
and the fair to look upon young woman smiled back ...
even more invitingly ...
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
*holy ghost saith: aka: spirit of truth. *erre (error) then is plain; against the very truth and verity (realness) of God and Christ.
whose house are we,
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 12
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh throughout dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he sayeth: I will return again into my house, from whence I came out. And when he is come, he findeth the house empty and swept and garnished. Then he goeth his way, and taketh unto him seven other spirits worse then himself, and so enter they in and dwell there. And the end of that man is worse than the beginning. Even so shall it be with this evil nation.
While he yet talked to the people: behold his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. Then one said unto him: behold thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
He answered and said to him that told him: Who is my mother? or who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand over his disciples and said: behold my mother and my brethren. For whosoever doth my fathers will which is in heaven, the same is my brother, sister and mother

THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 15
Then came to Jesus Scribes and Pharisees from Jerusalem saying: why do thy disciples transgress the traditions of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. He answered and said unto them: why do ye also transgress the commandment of God, through your traditions? For God commanded saying: honour thy father and mother and he that curseth father or mother shall suffer death. But ye say, every man shall say to his father or mother: that which thou desirest of me to help thee with: is given God: and so shall he not honour his father or his mother. And thus have ye made, that the commandment of God is without effect, through your traditions. Hypocrites, well prophesied of you Esaias saying: This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouths, and honoureth me with their lips, how be it their hearts are far from me: but in vain they worship me teaching doctrines, which are nothing but mens precepts.
And he called the people unto him, and said to them: hear and understand. That which goeth into the mouth, defileth not the man: but that which cometh out of the mouth, defileth the man.
Then came his disciples, and said unto him. Perceivest thou not, how that the Pharisees are offended in hearing this saying? He answered and said: all plants which my heavenly father hath not planted, shall be plucked up by the roots. Let them alone, they be the blind leaders of the blind. If the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 8
All the commandments which I command thee this day ye shall keep for to do them, that ye may live and multiply and go and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers. And think on all the way which the Lord thy God led thee this forty years in the wilderness, for to humble thee and to prove thee, to *wete what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments or no. He humbled thee and made thee hunger and fed thee with manna which neither thou nor thy father knew of, to make thee know that a man must not live by bread only: but by all that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord must a man live. Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy feet swell this forty years.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 4
Then was Jesus led away of the spirit into wilderness, to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered. Then came to him the tempter, and said: if thou be the son of God, command that these stones be made bread. He answered and said: it is written, man shall not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God
Then devil took him up into the holy city, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him: if thou be the son of God, cast thy self down. For it is written: he shall give his angels charge over thee, and with their hands they shall hold thee up, that thou dash not thy foot against a stone. And Jesus said to him, it is written also: Thou shall not tempt thy Lord God.
The devil took him up again and led him in to an exceeding high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and all the glory of them, and said to him: all these will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then said Jesus unto him. Avoid, Satan. For it is written, thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Then the devil left him, and behold, the angels came and ministered unto him.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN THE DIVINE Chpt 16
And the sixth Angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates, and the water dried up that the ways of the kings of the east should be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false Prophet. For they are the spirits of devils working miracles, to go out unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God almighty. Behold I come as a thief. Happy is he that watcheth and keepeth his garments, lest he be found naked, and men see his filthiness. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armagedon.
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 44
Then all the men which knew that their wives had offered unto strange gods, and a great sort of wives that stood there, yee and all the people that dwelt there in Egypt in the city of Patures, answered Jeremy, and said: As for the words that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the Lord, we will in no wise hear them: But whatsoever goeth forth out of our own mouth, that will we do: We will do sacrifice, and offer oblations unto the Queen of heaven: like as we and our forefathers, our Kings and our heads have done in the cities of Judah, and in the streets and fields of Jerusalem. For then had we plenteousness of victuals, then were we in prosperity, and no misfortune came upon us.
But since we left, to offer, and to do sacrifice unto the Queen of heaven, we have had scarceness of all things, and perish with the sword and hunger. Last of all, when we women did sacrifice and offered unto the Queen of heaven, did we make her cakes and pour unto her drink offerings, to do her service, without our husbands wills?
EREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 23
And therefore the Lord of Hosts giveth you this warning: Hear not the words of the prophets, that preach unto you, and deceive you: for they speak the meaning of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord. They say unto them, that despise me: The Lord hath spoken it: Tush, ye shall prosper right well. And unto all them, that walk after the lusts of their own heart, they say: Tush , there shall no misfortune happen you. For who hath sitten in the counsel of the Lord, that he hath heard and understand, what he is about to do? Who hath marked his devise, and heard it? Behold, the stormy weather of the Lord, that is, his indignation, shall go forth, and shall fall down upon the head of the ungodly. And the wrath of the Lord shall not turn away again, until he perform and fulfil the thought of his heart. And in the latter days ye shall know his meaning.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 24
Then if any man shall say unto you: lo, here is Christ, or there is Christ: believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall do great miracles and wonders. In so much that if it were possible, the very elect should be deceived. Take heed, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you: behold he is in the desert, go not forth: behold he is in the secret places, believe not. For as the lightning cometh out of the East and shineth unto the west: so shall the coming of the son of man be. For wheresoever a dead carcass is, even thither will the eagles resort. Immediately after the tribulations of those days, shall the sun be darkened: and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall move. And then shall appear the sign of the son of man in heaven. And then shall all the kindreds of the earth mourn, and they shall see the son of man come in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his Angels with the great voice of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his chosen, from the four winds, and from the one end of the world to the other.
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 FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 6
And he said unto me: In the beginning when the ground was made: before the world stood, or ever the winds blew, before it thundered and lightened, or ever the foundations of paradise were laid, before the fair flowers were seen, or ever the moveable powers were established, before the innumerable multitude of angels were gathered together, or ever the highness of the air was lifted up, afore the measures of the firmament were named, or ever the chimneys of Sion were hot, and the present years were sought out, and or ever the inventions of those that now sin, were put aside, before they were sealed that now gather faith for a treasure: then did I consider and ponder all these things, and they all were made through me, and through none other: Then answered I and said: which shall be the parting asunder of the times? Or when shall the end of the first, and the beginning of it that followeth? And he said unto me: From Abraham unto Isaac, when Jacob and esau were born of him, Jacobs hand held first the heel of esau: for esau is the end of this world, and Jacob is the beginning of it that followeth. The hand of man between the heel and the hand. Other question ( Esdras ) ask thou not.
I answered then, and said: O' Lord, Lord, if I have found favor in thy sight, I beseech thee, show thy servant the end of the tokens, whereof thou showest me part the last night. So he answered and said unto me: Stand up upon thy feet, and hear the perfect voice and sound. There shall come a great motion, but the place where thou standest will not be moved. And therefore when thou hearest the words be not afraid: for of the end shall the word and the foundation of the earth be understand. And why? the word thereof trembleth and quaketh, for it knoweth, that it must be changed at the end. And it happened, that when I heard it, I stood up upon my feet, and harkened: And behold there was a voice that spake, and the sound of it was like the sound of many waters, and it said. Behold, the days come, that I will begin to draw near, and to visit them that dwell upon the earth, and will begin to make inquisition of them, what they be that have hurt equity with unrighteousness, and when the low estate of Sion shall be fulfilled: and when the world, that shall vanish away, shall be oversealed, then will I do these tokens.
The books shall be opened before the firmament, and they shall see altogether, and the children of a year old shall speak with their voices: the women with child shall bring forth untimely children of three or four months old, and they shall live, and be raised up: and suddenly shall the sown places appear as the unsewn, the full store houses shall suddenly be found empty, and the trumpet shall give a sound, which when every man hearth, they shall be hastily afraid. At that time shall friends fight against one another like enemies, and the earth shall stand in fear with them.
The springs of the wells shall stand still, and in three hours they shall not run. Whosoever remaineth from all these things that I have told thee, shall escape, and see my salvation, and the end of your world. And the men that are received, shall see it, they that have not tasted death from their birth: and the heart of the indwellers shall be changed, and turned into another meaning: for evil shall be put out, and deceit shall be quenched. As for faith, it shall flourish, corruption shall be over come: and the truth, which hath so long been without fruit, shall be declared. And it happened when he talked with me, that I looked demurely upon him, before whom I stood, and these words said he unto me: I am come to show thee, the time of the night for to come.
EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 18
And yet saith the house of Israel: Tush, the way of the Lord is not equal. Are my ways unright, O ye house of Israel: Are not your ways rather unequal? As for me, I will judge every man, according to his ways, O ye house of Israel, saith the Lord God. Wherefore be converted, and turn you clean from all your wickedness, so shall there no sin do you harm. Cast away from you all your ungodliness, that ye have done: make you new hearts and new spirit. Wherefore will ye die, O ye house of Israel: seeing that I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, sayeth the Lord God. Turn you then, and ye shall live
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 14
And the high Priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesu, to put him to death and found none. Yet many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together. And there arose certain and brought false witness against him, saying. We heard him say: I will destroy this temple made with hands, and within three days I will build another, made without hands. But their witness agreed not together.
THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 7
How be it he that is highest of all, dwelleth not in temples made with hands, as saith the Prophet: Heaven is my seat, and earth is my footstool, what house will ye build for me saith the Lord? or what place is it that I should rest in hath not my hand made all these things?
THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 17
Paul stood in the midst of Marce street and said: ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by and beheld the manner how ye worship your gods, I found an altar wherein was written: unto the unknown God. Whom ye then ignorantly worship him show I unto you: God that made the world and all that are in it, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, he dwelleth not in temples made with hands, neither is worshipped with mens hands, as though he needed of any thing, seeing he himself giveth life and breath to all men everywhere, and hath made of one blood all nations of men, for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath assigned before, how long time, and also the ends of their inhabitation, that they should seek God, if they might feel and find him, though he be not far from every one of us. For in him we live, move and have your being, as certain of your own Poets said. For we are also his generation. For as much then as we are the generation of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, silver or stone, graven by craft and imagination of man.
And the time of this ignorance God regarded not. but now he biddeth all men everywhere repent, because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world according to righteousness, by that man whom he hath appointed, and hath offered faith to all men, after that he had raised him from death.
THE SECOND TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 5
We know surely if our earthy mansion wherein we now dwell were destroyed, that we have a building ordained of God, an habitation not made with hands, but eternal in heaven: And therefore sigh we, desiring to be clothed with our mansion which is from heaven: so yet if that we be found clothed, and not naked. For as long as we are in this tabernacle, we sigh and are grieved, for we would not be unclothed, but would be clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. He that hath ordained us for this thing, is God: which very same hath given unto us the earnest of the spirit.
Therefore we are always of good cheer, and know well that as long as we are at home in the body, we are absent from God. For we walk in faith and see not. Nevertheless we are of good comfort, and had *liefer to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. Wherefore, whether we be at home or from home we endeavor our selves to please him. For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that every man may receive the works of his body according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad?
TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 9
But Christ being an high priest of good things to come, came by a greater and a more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands: that is to say, not of this manner building, neither by the blood of goats and calves: but by his own blood he entered once for all into the holy place, and found eternal redemption. For if the blood of oxen and of goats and the ashes of an heifer, when it was sprinkled, purified the unclean, as touching the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ (which through the eternal spirit, offered him self without spot to God) purge your consciences from dead works for to serve the living God?
TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 12
Wherefore let us also (seeing that we are compassed with so great a multitude of witnesses) lay away all that presseth down, and the sin that hangeth on, and let us run with patience unto the battle that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, which for the joy that was set before him, abode the cross, and despised the shame, and is set down on the right hand of the throne of God. Consider therefore how that he endured such speaking against him of sinners, lest ye should be wearied and faint in your minds. For ye have not yet resisted unto blood shedding, striving against sin. And ye have forgotten the consolation, which speaketh unto you, as unto children: My son despise not the chastening of the Lord, neither faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth, him he chasteneth: yee, and he scourgeth every son that he receiveth.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 13
Moreover when ye see the abomination that betokeneth desolation, whereof is spoken by Daniel the prophet, stand where it ought not, let him that readeth understand. Then let them that be in *Jurie, flee to the mountains. And let him that is on the house top, not descend down into the house, neither enter therein, to fetch anything out of his house. And let him that is in the field, not turn back again unto those things which he left behind him, for to take his clothes with him. Woe shall be then to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days. But pray, that your flight be not in the winter. For there shall be in those days such tribulation, as was not from the beginning of creatures which God created unto this time, neither shall be. And except that the Lord should shorten those days, no man should be saved. But for the elects sake, which he hath chosen, he hath shortened those days.
And then, if any man say to you: lo, here is Christ: lo, he is there, believe not. For false Christs shall arise, and false prophets, and shall show miracles and wonders, to deceive if it were possible, even the elect. But take ye heed: behold I have showed you all things before.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 12
And when the dragon saw, that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, times, and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And the dragon cast out of his mouth water after the woman as it had been a river, because she should have been caught of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed, up the river, which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman: and went and made war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. And I stood on the sea *stonde.

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the people which are in the four quarters of the earth Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea: and they went up on the plain of the earth, and compassed the tents of the saints about, and the beloved city. And fire came down from God, out of heaven, and devoured them: and the devil that deceived them, was cast into a lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet were and shall be tormented day and night for ever more.

And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying : go thy way, and show my people their sinful deeds, and their children their wickednesses, which they have done against me, that they may tell their childrens children the same: for the sins of their fathers are increased in them. And why they have forgotten me, and have offered unto strange gods. Am not I even he, that brought them out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage: But they have provoked me unto wrath, and despised my counsels. Pull thou out then the heart of thy head, and call all evil over them, for they have not been obedient to my law.
This is a people with out learning and nurture. How long shall I forebear them, unto whom I have done so much good:
*Amerias later see the Eagle whose wings cover the earth: note. RN
THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 11
Then saw I a dream: and behold, there came up from the sea an Eagle, which had twelve wings and three heads: And I saw, and behold, *he spread his wings over all the earth, and all the winds of the air blew in them, and so they were put together again. And I beheld, and out of his feathers there grew other little contrary feathers: the heads rested, the head in the midst was greater than the others, yet rested it with the residue.
Moreover I saw, that the eagle flew with his wings, and reigned upon the earth, and over all them that dwell upon the earth: and I saw that all things under heaven were subject unto him, and no man spoke against him, no not one creature upon the earth. I saw also that the Eagle stood up on his claws, and give a sound with his feathers, and a voice saying things after this manner: watch not all together, sleep every man in his own place, and watch for a time, but let the heads be preserved at the last. Nevertheless I saw, that the voice went not out of his heads, but from the midst of his body. And I numbered his contrary feathers, and behold there were eight of them. And I looked, and behold upon the right side there arose one feather, and reigned over all the earth. And it happened, that when it reigned, the end of it came, and the place thereof appeared no more. So the next following stood up, and reigned, and had a great time: and it happened, that when it reigned, the end of it came also, like as the first, so that it appeared no more.
Then came there a voice unto it, and said: Hear thou that hast kept in the earth so long, this I say unto thee, before thou beginest to appear no more: There shall none after thee attain unto thy time. Then arose the third, and reigned as the other afore, and appeared no more also. So went it with all the residue one after the other, so that every one reigned, and then appeared no more. Then I looked, and behold, in the process of time that the feathers that followed were set up upon the right side, that they might rule also: and some of them ruled, but within a while they appeared no more: for some of them were set up, but ruled not. After this I looked, and behold the twelve feathers appeared no more, and that two wings: and there were no more upon the Eagles body, but the two heads that rested, and six feathers. Then saw I also, that the six feathers were parted in two, and remained under the head, that was upon the right side, for the four continued in their place. So I looked, and behold, they that were under the wings, thought to set up themselves, and to have the rule. Then was there one set up, but shortly it appeared no more, and the second was sooner away than the first. And I beheld, and lo, the two thought also by themselves to reign: and when they so thought, behold there awaked one of the heads that were at rest, namely, it that was in the midst, for that was the greater of the two heads. And then I saw, that the two heads were filled with him and the head was turned with them that were by him, and eat up the two under wings , that would have reigned.
But this head put the whole earth in fear, and bare rule in it, over all those that dwelt upon the earth with much labor, and he had the governance of the world, over all the fowls that have been. After this I looked , and behold, the head that was in the midst, suddenly appeared no more, like as the wings: then came the two heads, which ruled upon the earth, and over those that dwelt therein. And I beheld, and lo the head upon the right side, devoured it that was upon the left side. And I heard a voice, which said unto me: look before thee, and consider the thing that thou seest. Then I saw, and behold, as it were a lion that roareth, running hastily out of the wood, and he sent out a mans voice unto the Eagle, and said: Hear thou, I will talk with thee, and the Highest shall say unto thee: Is it not thou that hast the victory of the four beasts, whom I made to reign upon the earth and in my world, and that the end of their times might come through them?
And the fourth came, and *overwane, subdue all the beasts that were past, and had power over the world with great fearfulness, and over the whole compass of the earth with the most wicked labor, and so long time dwelt he upon the earth with deceit, and the earth thou hast not judged the truth. For thou hast troubled the meek, thou hast hurt the peaceable and quiet, thou hast loved lies, and destroyed the dwellings of them that brought forth fruit, and hast cast down the walls of such as did thee no harm. Therefore is thy wrongeous dealing and blasphemy come up unto the Highest, and thy pride unto the Mighty. The Highest also hath looked upon the proud times, and behold, they are ended, and their abominations are fulfilled. And therefore appear no more thou Eagle, and thy horrible wings, and thy wicked feathers, and thy ungracious heads, and thy sinful claws, and all thy vain body: that the earth may be refreshed, and come again to herself, when she is delivered from thy violence, and that she may hope for the judgement and mercy of him that made her

THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 12
And it happened when the Lion spake, these words unto the eagle, I saw, and behold, the head that afore had the upper hand, appeared no more: neither did the four wings appear any more, that came to him, and were set up to reign: and their kingdom was small and full of uproar. And I saw, and behold, they appeared no more, and the whole body of the eagle was burnt, and the earth was in great fear. Then awakened I out of the trance of my mind, and from great fear, and said unto my spirit: Lo, this hast thou given me, in that thou searchest out the ways of the Highest: lo, yet I am weary in my mind, and very weak in my spirit, and little strength is there in me, for the great fear that I received this night. Therefore will I now beseech the Highest, that he will comfort me unto the end: And I said, Lord, Lord, if I have before thy sight, and if I am justified with thee before many other, and if my prayer be come up before thy face, comfort me then, and show me thy servant the interpretation and plain difference of this horrible sight, that thou mayest perfectly comfort my soul: for thou hast judged me worthy, to show me the last of times.
And he said unto me: this is the interpretation of this sight. The eagle whom thou saw sawest come up from the sea, is the kingdom which was seen in the vision of thy brother Daniel, but it was not expounded unto him, for now I declare it unto thee. Behold, the days come, that there shall rise up a kingdom upon the earth, and it shall be feared above all the kingdoms that were before it. In the same kingdom shall twelve kings reign, one after the other. For the second shall begin to reign, and shall have more time than the other, and this do the twelve wings signify, which thou sawest. As for the voice that spake, and that thou sawest go out from the heads but not from the body, it be tokeneth, that after the time of that kingdom there shall arise great strivings, and it shall stand in peril of falling: nevertheless it shall not yet fall, but shall be set in to his beginning. And the eight under wings which thou sawest hang unto the wings of him, betoken, that in him there shall arise eight kings, whose time shall be small, and their years swift, and two of them shall bear. But when the midst time cometh, there shall be four kept in that time, when his time begineth to come that it may be ended, but two shall be kept unto the end.
And where as thou sawest three heads resting, this is the interpretation: In his last shall the Highest raise up three kingdoms, and call many again into them, and they shall have the dominion of the earth, and of those that dwell therein, with much labor above all those that were before them. Therefore are they called the heads of the eagle: for it is they that shall bring forth his wickedness again, and that shall perform and finish his last. And where as thou sawest, that the great head appeared no more, it signifieth, that one of them shall die upon his bed, and yet with pain, for the two that remain, shall be slain with the sword. For the sword of the one shall devour the other, but at the last shall he fall through the sword himself.
And where as thou sawest two underwings upon the head that is on the right side, it signifieth that it is they, whom the Highest hath kept unto their end: this is a small kingdom, full of trouble. The Lion whom thou sawest rising up out of the wood, and roaring, and speaking unto the Eagle, and rebuking him for his unrighteousness, is the wind, which the Highest hath kept for them and for their wickedness unto the end: he shall reprove them, and rent them asunder before them. For he shall set them living before the judgement, and shall rebuke them: for the residue of my people shall he deliver with trouble, those that be preserved over mine ends: and he shall make them joyful until the coming day of Judgement, where of I have spoken unto thee from the beginning. This is the dream that thou sawest, and this is the interpretation. Thou only hast been meat to know the secret of the Highest.
Therefore write all these things that thou hast seen in a book, and hide them, and teach them the wise in the people, whos hearts thou knowest may comprehend and keep these secrets. But wait thou here thyself yet seven days more, that it may be showed the , whatsoever pleaseth the Highest to declare unto thee, and with that he went his way.
And when all the people perceived, that the seven days were past, And I come again into the city, they gathered them all together from the least to the most, and came unto me, and said: what have we offended thee? and what evil have we done against thee, that thou forsake us, and sitteth here in this place? For of all the people thou only are left us, as a grape of the vine, and as a candle in a dark place, and as a haven a ship preserved from the tempest. Have we not adversity enough, but thou must forsake us? Were it not better for us, that we had been burnt with Sion? For we are no better, then they that died there: and they wept with loud voice. Then answered I them and said: Be of good comfort O' Israel, be not heavy thou house of Jacob: for the Highest hath you in remembrance, and the Mighty hath not forgotten you in temptation. As for me, I have not forsaken you, neither am I departed from you: but am come into this place to pray, because of the misery of Israel, that I might seek mercy for the low estate of your Sanctuary. And now go your way home every man, and after these days will I come unto you. So the people went their way into the city, like as I commanded them: but I remained in the field seven days, as the Angel bade me: and I ate only of the flowers of the field, and had my meat of the herbs in those days
and some of the more Dreams and visions that the Lord Jesus Christ himself has given me about "religions and churches of men"
speaking to the churches...
inside the church...
Religions of men
churches in hell
city church; spiritual drugs
freedom of whorship
preparing; gathering up
plainfaced harlot and her daughters
hot, cold, luke warm
captives and the angel of light
three things about the churches of men...
white church of men
woman and the church
body and head
- " the church whore...
- " the church ...and laying down the "bibles of men"
- "idols ...churches...witchcraft"
- "weeping against wickedness ...and the few ..."
- "the pinnacle of the church ...and the whorish wife ..."
and a nightmare came back to remembrance that i was shown before of prosperity preachings and false profits ...in Hell ...
Then I was taken to a special place in Hell and shown the works of faith therein. There appeared a similitude of a church...yet it had no roof and no walls ...all appeared as filthy and stinking with dung and money mixed together everywhere... yet the pews where lined up and the minister was standing in his high place in front of all the worshipers... as it was I was shown the wickedness hearts and thinking of these ...for the worshippers were blinded by their own glory and justification and did look only to the minister of the place ...worshiping all that he said ...yet hearing nothing ...and they fed him with coins that he did have an appetite for ...yet as he became full of the money he did relieve himself ...and his dung mixed with coins did the people eat...And the minister did preach mightily, raising his hands up in all earnestness to the light that shone down upon him.
I was then quickened to look up and behold there was Satan...again the light was of his jeweled chest ...and it was shown me the matters between Satan and this minister ...for Satan desired that the people worship him and bent the minister to do his bidding ...and with all that the minister could do he could not turn the people from himself ...that they might worship Satan ...for the people could not see Satan but only the minister was able see him ...now every time the minister tried to get the people to worship Satan ...yet they worshipped the minister only ...at this did Satan smite the minister with torment of mind ...and so the cycle never ending... always ministering, worshipping, smiting, defecating, eating of dung and coins ...on and on forever without rest ...
Here ended the dream of Hell and all the matters thereof ...and I awoke and thanked the Lord for all the matters shown me ...
