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 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 high minded meeting ...
and there were high people there who had rule over others ...
and over what people thought ...(or so they thought) ...
and they made decisions on what the children would be taught ...
and what the children would believe ...(or so they thought) ...
and of corpse they thought highly of their own opinions ...
and little of the truth or the spirit thereof ...
and even less of God and Jesus ...
even denying all together of anything of God or Jesus ...
and they began to debate and discuss the origin of the species ...
and that namely the "human" species as they called themselves ...
and they came to the conclusion that they were not of God.
and that the children of the nation should be taught the same ...
even any of the whole world ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 13
And the disciples came and said to him: Why speakest thou to them in parables? He answered and said unto them, it is given unto you to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
For whosoever hath to him shall be given: and he shall have abundance. But whosoever hath not: from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in similitudes: for though they see, they see not: and hearing they hear not: nether understand. And in them is fulfilled the Prophecy of Esaias, which prophecy saith: with the ears ye shall hear and shall not understand, and with the eyes ye shall see, and shall not perceive. For this peoples hearts are waxed gross, and their ears were dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their hearts, and should turn, that I might heal them.
But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. Verily I say unto you, that many prophets, and perfect men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them: and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. Hear ye therefore the similitude of the sower. Whosoever heareth the word of the kingdom and understandeth it not, there cometh the evil man and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. And this is he which was sown by the way side. But he that was sown in the stony ground, is he which heareth the word of God, and *anon with joy receiveth it, yet hath no roots in himself, and therefore *dureth but a season: for as soon as tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he falleth. He that was sown among thorns, is he that heareth the word of God: but the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and so is he made unfruitful. He which is sown in the good ground is he that heareth the word and understandeth it: which also beareth fruit and bringeth forth, some hundred fold, some sixty fold, and some thirty fold.
Another similitude put he forth unto them saying: The kingdom is like unto a man which sowed good seed in his field. But while men slept there came his foe and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. When the blade was sprung up and had brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. Then came the servants to the householder, and said unto him: Sir sowest thou good seed in thy *close, from whence then hath it tares? He said to them: the envious man hath done this. Then the servants said unto him: wilt thou then that we go and weed them out? But he said, nay, lest while ye go about to weed out the tares, ye pluck up also with them the wheat by the roots: let both grow together till harvest come, and in time of harvest, I will say to the reapers, gather ye first the tares, and bind them in sheaves to be burnt: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Another parable he put forth unto them saying. The kingdom of heaven is like unto a grain of mustard seed, which a man taketh and soweth in his field, which is the least of all seeds. But when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and it is a tree: so that the birds of the air come and build in the branches of it.
Another similitude said he to them. The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven which a woman taketh and hideth in three pecks of meal, till all be leavened.
All these things spake Jesus unto the people by similitudes, and with out similitudes spake he nothing to them, to fulfil that which was spoken by the Prophet saying: I will open my mouth in similitudes, and will speak forth things which have been kept secret from the beginning of the world.
Then sent Jesus the people away, and came home. And his disciples came unto him, saying: declare unto us the similitude of the tares in the field. Then answered he and said to them. He that soweth the good seed, is the son of man. And the field is the world. And the children of the kingdom, they are the good seed. And the tares are the children of the wicked. And the enemy that soweth them, is the devil. The harvest is the end of the world. And the reapers be the Angels. For even as the tares are gathered and burnt in the fire: so shall it be in the end of this world. The son of man shall send forth his Angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity, and shall cast them into a furnace of fire. There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the just men shine as bright as the *son in the kingdom of their father. Whosoever hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Again the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in the field, which a man findeth and hideth: and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
Again the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant that seeketh good pearls, which when he had found one precious pearl, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
Again the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net cast into the sea, that gathereth of all kinds of fishes: which when it is full, men draw to land, and sit and gather the good into vessels, and cast the bad away. So shall it be at the end of the world. The Angels shall come out and sever the bad from the good, and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Jesus said unto them: Understand ye all these things? They said, ye Lord. Then said he unto them: Therefore every Scribe which is taught unto the kingdom of heaven is like an householder, which bringeth forth, out of his treasure, things both new and old.
And it came to pass when Jesus had finished these similitudes, that he departed thence, and came in to his own country, and taught them in their synagogues, in so much that they were astonied and said: whence cometh all this wisdom and power unto him? Is not this the Carpenters son? Is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren be called James and Joses and Simon and Judas? And are not his sisters all here with us? Whence hath he all these things. And they were offended by him. Then Jesus said to them, a Prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and among his own kin. And he did not many miracles there, for their unbeliefs sake
*sun: spelled sunne (compare below). *anon (right away soon ) *dureth (endureth)
*close: to bring in the sides, as when covering seed. *son: exactly as it appears in the text, sonne, know that sun found above was written as sunne.
ST. PAUL TO THE ROMANS Chpt 9
I Say the truth in Christ, and lie not, in that whereof my conscience beareth me witness in the holy ghost that I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. For I have wished myself to be cursed from Christ, for my brethren and my kinsmen as pertaining to the flesh, which are the Israelites. To whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the law that was given, and the service of God, and the promises: whose also are the fathers, and they of whom (as concerning the flesh) Christ came, which is God over all things blessed for ever. Amen.
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.
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.
What shall we say then? We say that the gentiles which followed not righteousness have overtaken righteousness: I mean the righteousness which cometh of faith. But Israel which followed the law of righteousness could not attain unto the law of righteousness. And wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith: but as it were by the works of the law. For they have stumbled at the stumbling stone. As it is written: Behold I put in Sion a stumbling stone, and a rock which shall make men fall. And none that believe on him, shall be ashamed
*yer (before) *Osee (Oseas, Hosea) *Zodoma (Sodom)
And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said unto them, ye are not my people:
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 25
When the son of man cometh in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the seat of his glory, and before him shall be gathered all nations. And he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth the sheep from the goats. And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, and the goats on the left. Then shall the King say to them on his right hand: Come ye blessed children of my father, inherit ye the kingdom prepared for you from the beginning of the world. For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat. I thirsted, and ye gave me drink. I was harborless, and ye lodged me. I was naked and ye clothed me. I was sick and ye visited me. I was in prison and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him saying: master, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or a thirst, and gave thee drink? when saw we thee harborless, and lodged thee? or naked and clothed thee? or when saw we thee sick or in prison and came unto thee? And the king shall answer and say unto them: Verily I say unto you: in as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it to me.
Then shall the king say unto them that shall be on the left hand: depart from me ye cursed, into everlasting fire: which is prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat. I thirsted, and ye gave me no drink. I was harborless, and ye lodged me not. I was naked, and ye clothed me not. I was sick and in prison, and ye visited me not.
Then shall they also answer him saying: master, when saw we thee an hungered, or a thirst, or harborless, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them and say: Verily I say unto you, in as much as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go into everlasting pain: And the righteous into life eternal
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. JOHN Chpt 1
And this is the tidings which we have heard of him and declare unto you, that God is light and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and yet walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth. But and if we walk in (light) even as he is in light, then have we fellowship with him, and the blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanseth us from all sin.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and truth is not in us. If we knowledge our sins, he is faithful and just, to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 7
Therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, even so do ye to them. This is the law and the Prophets.
Enter in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction: and many there be which go in thereat. But strait is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life: and few there be that find it. Beware of false Prophets, which come to you in sheeps clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns? Or figs of briars? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit. But a corrupt tree, bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth bad fruite: nor yet a bad tree can bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Not all they that say unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter in to the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth my fathers will which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not in thy name Prophesied? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name have done many miracles? And then will I knowledge unto them that I never knew them. Depart from me, ye workers of iniquity.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 23
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.
