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 from above a city of the world of the worldly ...
and city could be seen clearly ...
even as in the brightness ...of the day.
and again from above i could see the rushing and raging and running here and there ...
evenso there was little or nothing of worthy ...being ...being done.
and i was taken over the city ...that i might look straight ...down upon the city ...
and when looked there was a huge pit ... a depression ...in the very heart of the city ...
and people were playing in the pit ...
and i was given to look closer ...
and the people playing in the pit ...seemed to know ...nothing of the pit forming ...
even as though the pit was so huge that they did not see it ...
nevertheless the pit kept expanding and getting deeper and deeper ...
even that it might consume the whole city ...of the world of the worldly.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 5
Nevertheless, as concerning the tokens, mark this: Behold, the days shall come, that they which dwell upon the earth, shall be taken in a great number, and the way of the truth shall be hid, and the land shall be barren from faith: but iniquity will have the upper hand, like as thou have seen now, and as thou hast heard long ago. And the land that thou seest now to have rule, shall thou shortly see waste. But if God grant thee to live, thou shalt see after the third trumpet, that the sun shall suddenly shine again in the night, and the moon three times in the day, and blood shall drop out of wood, and the stone shall give his voice, and the people shall be unquiet: and even shall rule, whom they hope not that dwell upon the earth, and the fowls shall flight, and the *Sodomitish sea shall cast out his fish, and make a noise in the night, which many shall not know, but they shall all hear the voice thereof.
There shall be a confusion also in many places, and the fire shall be often sent again, and the wild beasts shall go their way, and menstruous women shall bear monsters, and salt waters will be found in the sweat: one friend shall fight against another: then shall all wit and understanding be hid and put into their secret places, and shall be sought of many, and yet not be found: then shall unrighteousness and voluptuousness have the upper hand upon the earth. One land shall also ask another, and say: Is righteousness gone through thee? And it shall say: No, at the same time shall men hope, but nothing obtain: they shall labor but their wages shall not prosper.
To show thee such tokens I have leave, and if thou wilt pray again, and weep as now, and fast seven days, thou shalt hear yet greater things. Then I awaked, and a fearfulness went through all my body, and my mind was feeble and careful, so that I almost sounded withal. So the angel that was come to talk with me, held me, comforted me, and set me up upon my feet.
And in the second night it happened, that Salathielthe Captain of the people came unto me, saying: Where hast thou been? and why is thy countenance so heavy? Knowest thou not, that Israel is committed unto thee, in the land of their captivity? Up then, and eat and forsake us not, as the shepherd that leaveth his flock in the hands of the wicked wolves. Then said I unto him: Go thy way from me, and come not near me: and he heard it, and as I said, so went he his way from me. And so I fasted seven days, mourning and weeping, like as Uriel the angel commanded me. And after seven days it happened, that the thoughts of my heart were very grievous unto me again, and my soul received the spirit of understanding, and I began to talk with the most highest again, and said: O' Lord, Lord, of every wood of the earth and all the trees thereof, thou hast chosen the one only vineyard: and of all the lands of the whole world thou hast chosen the one pit: and of all the flowers of the ground thou hast chosen the one lily: and of all the depths of the sea thou hast filled the one river: and of all the builded cities thou hast hallowed Sion unto thy self: and of all the fowls that are created, thou hast named the one dove: and of all the cattle that are made thou hast provided the one sheep: and among all the multitudes of flocks thou hast gotten the one people, and unto this people whom thou lovest, thou gavest the law, that is proved of all.
And now, O' Lord, why hast thou given this one people over unto many? And upon the one root thou hast prepared other, and why hast thou scattered thy one only people among many? which tread them down, yee which have ever withstand thy promises, and never believed thy commandments? And though thou werest enemy unto thy people, yet shouldest thou punish them with thine own hands. Now when I had spoke these words, the angel that came to me the night before, was sent unto me, and said unto me : Hear me, and harken unto the things that I say, and I shall tell thee more. And I said: Speak on my Lord. Then said he unto me: Thou art sore vexed and troubled for Israels sake. Lovest thou the people better than him that made thee? And I said: No Lord, but of very grief and compassion have I spoken. For my reigns pain me every hour, because I would have experience of the way of the most highest, and to seek out part of his judgement. And he said unto me: that thou mayest not. And I said: wherefore Lord? Where unto was I born then? Or why was not my mothers childbed then my grave? So I had not seen the misery and trouble of Jacob, and the travail of my people of Israel.
And he said unto me: Number me the things that are not yet come : gather me together the drops, that are scattered abroad: make me the flowers green again, that are withered: open me the thing that is closed: and bring me forth the winds, that are shut up: Show me the image of a voice, and then I shall declare the thing, that thou laborest to know. And I said: O' Lord, Lord, who may know these things, but he that hath not his dwelling with men? As for me I am unwise: how may I then speak of these things whereof thou asketh me? Then said he unto me: like as thou can do none of these things that I have spoken of, even so canest thou not find out my judgement, or in the end the love that I have promised unto my people. And I said: Behold O' Lord, yet art thou near unto them that have no end: and what shall they do that have been before me, or we that be now, or they that should come after us ? And he said unto me: I will liken my judgement unto a ring. Like as there is no slackness of the last, even so there is no swiftness of the first. So I answered and said: couldest thou not make those ( that have been made, and that be now, and that are for to come ) in one, that thou might show thy judgement the sooner? Then answered he me, and said: The creature may not hasten above the maker, nether may the world hold them at once, that shall be created.
And I said: Now hast thou said unto thy servant, that thou living maker hast made the creature living at once, and the creature bear it? even so might it now also bear them that be present, at once. And he said unto me: Ask the childbed of a woman, and say unto her: If thou bringest forth children, why doest thou not together, but one after another? Pray her therefore, to bring forth ten children at once. And I said: she can not, but must do it one after the other.
Then said he unto me: Even so have I given a childbed unto the earth, for those that be sown upon it by process of time. For like as a young child may not bring forth the things that belong to the aged, even so have I ordered the world which I have made.
And I asked and said: Seeing thou hast now given me the way, I will speak before thee: for our mother whom thou hast told me, is yet young, and now she draweth near unto age. He answered, me and said: Ask a woman that beareth children, and she shall tell thee. Say unto her: wherefore are not they ( whom thou hast now brought forth) like those that were before thee, but less of stature? And she shall answer thee: They that were born in the youth of strength, are of one fashion : and they that are born in the time of age ( when the childbed faileth) are otherwise. Consider now thyself, how that yee are less of stature, then those that were before you, and so are they that come after you, less then you, as the creatures that now begin to be old, and have passed over the strength of youth. Then said I: Lord I beseech thee, if I have found favor in thy sight, show thy servant, by whom doest thou visit thy creature?

THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 12
In that time went Jesus on the Sabbath days through the corn and his disciples were an hungered, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat. When the Pharisees saw that, they said unto him: Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the Sabbath day. He said unto them: Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungered, and they also which were with him? How he entered into the house of God, and ate the hallowed loaves which were not lawful for him to eat neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests. Or have ye not read in the law, how that the priests in the temple break the Sabbath day, and yet are blameless? But I say unto you: that here is one greater than the temple. Wherefore if ye had *wist what this saying meaneth: I require mercy, and not sacrifice: ye would never have condemned innocents. For the son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.
And he departed thence, and went into their synagogue: and behold there was a man which had his hand dried up. And they asked him, saying: is it lawful to heal upon the Sabbath days? because they might accuse him. And he said unto them: which of you would it be, if he had a sheep fallen into a pit on the Sabbath day, that would not take him and lift him out? And how much is a man better then a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do a good deed on the Sabbath days. Then said he to the man: stretch forth thy hand. And he stretched it forth. And it was made whole again like unto the other.
Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him. When Jesus knew that, he departed thence, and much people followed him, and he healed them all, and charged them that they should not make him known: to fulfil that which was spoken by Esai the Prophet, which sayeth. Behold my child, whom I have chosen, my beloved, in whom my soul delighteth. I will put my spirit on him, and he shall show judgement to the gentiles. He shall not strive, he shall not cry, neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets, a bruised reed shall he not break, and flax that beginneth to burn, he shall not quench, till he send forth judgement unto victory, and in his name shall the gentiles trust.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 25
Likewise as a certain man ready to take his journey to a strange country, called his servants and delivered to them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two and to another one: to every man after his ability, and straight way departed. Then he that had received the five talents, went and bestowed them, and won other five talents. Likewise he that received two, gained other two. But he that received the one, went and digged a pit in the earth, and hid his masters money. After a long season the Lord of those servants came and reckoned with them. Then came he that had received five talents, and brought other five talents saying: master, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold I have gained with them five talents more. Then his master said unto him: well good servant and faithful. Thou hast been faithful in little, I will make thee ruler over much: enter in into thy masters joy. Also he that received two talents, came and said: master, thou deliveredest unto me two talents: behold, I have won two other talents with them. And his master said unto him, well good servant and faithful. Thou hast been faithful in little, I will make thee ruler over much, go in into thy masters joy.
Then he which had received the one talent came and said: master, I considered that thou wast an hard man, which reapest where thou sowedst not, and gatherest where thou *strawedst not, and was therefore afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: Behold, thou hast thine own. His master answered and said unto him: thou evil servant and slothful, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not and gather where I strawed not: thou oughtest therefore to have had my money to the changers, and then at my coming should I have received mine own with vantage. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto every man that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance, and from him that hath not, shall be taken away, even that he hath. And cast that unprofitable servant into utter darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
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 GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 14
And it chanced that he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on a Saboth day: and they watched him. And behold there was a man before him, which had the dropsy. And Jesus answered and spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees saying: is it lawful to heal on the Saboth day? And they held their peace. And he took him and healed him, and let him go: and answered them saying, which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straight way pull him out on the Saboth day? And they could not answer him again to that.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 9
And the fifth Angel blew, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth. And to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, and there arose the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun and the air were darkened by the reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them, that they should not hurt the grass of the earth: neither any green thing: neither any tree: but only those men which have not the seal in their foreheads. And to them was commanded that they should not kill them, but that they should be vexed five months, and their pain was as the pain that cometh of a scorpion, when he hath stung a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it, and shall desire to die, and death shall fly from them.
And the similitude of the locusts was like unto horses prepared unto battle, and on their heads were as it were crowns, like unto gold: and their faces were as it had been the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women. And their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had habergeons, as it were habergeons of iron. And the sound of their wings, was as the sound of chariots when many horses run together to battle: And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. And their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue, is Abadon: but in the Greek tongue, Apollion. One woe is past, and behold two woes come after this.
And the sixth Angel blew, and I heard a voice from the four corners of the golden altar, which is before God, saying to the sixth angel, which had the trumpet: Loose the four Angels, which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four Angels were loosed which were prepared for an hour, for a day, for a month, and for a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of horsemen of war, were twenty times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them: And thus I saw the horses in a vision, and them that sat on them having fiery habergeons of a Jacinth colour, and brimstone, and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions. And out of their mouths went forth fire and smoke and brimstone. And of these three was the third part of men killed: that is to say, of fire, smoke, and brimstone, which proceeded out of the mouths of them: For their power was in their mouths and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they did hurt: And the remnant of the men which were not killed by these plagues, repented not of the deeds of their hands that they should not worship devils, and images of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood, which neither can see, neither hear, neither go. Also they repented not of their murder, and of their sorcery neither of their fornication neither of their theft
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 11
And then was given me a reed, like unto a rod, and it was said unto me: Rise and meet the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein, and the *quere which is within the temple, cast out and meet it not: for it is given unto the Gentiles, and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty two months. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy one thousand, two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sack cloth. These are two olive trees, and two candlesticks, standing before the God of the earth.
And if any man will hurt them, fire shall proceed out of their mouths, and consume their enemies. And if any man will hurt them this wise must he be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophesying: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all manner plagues, as often as they will.
And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that came out of the bottomless pit, shall make war against them and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their bodies shall lie in the streets of the great city, which spiritually is called *Zodom and Eygpt, where our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds, and tongues, and they of the nations, shall see their bodies three days and an half, and shall not *suffer their bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth, shall rejoice over them and be glad, and shall send gifts one to another for these two Prophets vexed them that dwelt on the earth.
And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God, entered into them. And they stood up upon their feet: and great fear came upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven, saying unto them. Come up hither. And they ascended up into heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain names of men seven thousand and the remnant were feared, and gave glory to God of heaven. The second woe is past, and third woe will come *anon.
And the seventh angel blew, and there were made great voices in heaven, saying: the kingdoms of this world are our Lords and his Christs, and he shall reign for evermore. And the twenty four elders, which sit before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God saying: we give thee thanks Lord God almighty: which art and wast, and art to come, for thou hast received thy great might, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead that they should be judged and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the Prophets and Saints, and to them that fear thy name small and great and shouldest destroy them, which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple, the ark of his testament: and there followed lightnings, and voices, and thunderings and earthquake, and much hail
*Zodom (Sodom) *suffer (allow) *anon (shortly). *quere : place of asking ...where petitions are heard.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 17
And there came one of the seven Angels, which had the seven vials: and talked with me, saying unto me: come I will show thee the judgement of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters, with whom have committed fornication the kings of the earth, so that the inhabiters of the earth, are drunken with the wine of her fornication. And he carried me away into the wilderness in the spirit. And I saw a woman sit upon a rose colored beast full of names of blasphemy which had ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and rose colour and decked with gold, precious stone, and pearls, and had a cup of gold in her hand, full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. And in her forehead was a name written, a mystery, great Babylon the mother of whoredom and abominations of the earth. And I saw the wife drunken with the blood of saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of *Jesu. And when I saw her: I wondered with great marvel.
And the Angel said unto me: wherefore marvellest thou? I will show thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that beareth her, which hath seven heads, and ten horns. The beast that thou seest, was, and is not, and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and shall go into perdition, and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder (whose names are not written in the book of life from the beginning of the world) when they behold the beast that was and is not. And here is a mind that hath wisdom.
The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth: they are also seven kings. Five are fallen, and one is, and another is not yet come. When he cometh he must continue a space. And the beast that was, and is not, is even the eighth, and is one of the seven, and shall go into destruction. And the ten horns which thou seest, are ten kings, which have received no kingdom, but shall receive power as kings at one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall fight with the lamb, and the lamb shall overcome them: For he is Lord of lords, and king of kings and they that are on his side, are called, and chosen and faithful.
And he said unto me: the waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are people, and folk, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns, which thou sawest upon the beast, are they that shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate, and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts, to fulfil his will, and to do with one consent, for to give her kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest, is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 20
And I saw an Angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit, and a great chain in his hand. And he took the dragon that old serpent, which is the devil and Sathanas, and he bound him a thousand years: and cast him into the bottomless pit, and he bound him, and set a seal on him, that he should deceive the people no more, till the thousand years were fulfilled. And after that he must be loosed for a little season.
And I saw seats and they sat upon them and judgement was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of *Jesu, and for the word of God: which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had taken his mark upon their foreheads, or on their hands: and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years: but the other of the dead men lived not again, until the thousand years were finished. This is that first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. For on such shall the second death have no power, for they shall be the Priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
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 I saw a great white seat and him that sat on it, from whose face fled away both the earth and heaven, and their place was no more found. And I saw the dead, both great and small *stonde before God: And the books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged of those things which were written in the books according to their deeds: and the sea gave up her dead, which were in her, and death and hell delivered up the dead, which were in them: and they were judged every man according to his deeds. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is that second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life, was cast into the lake of fire
*Jesu: Hebrew for Jesus. *stonde (stunned) *stonde: stunned see stand plainly in the 19th Chapter and stunned in the 12th Chapter.
