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 there came a time when the captives would be set free ...
and they were set free of the evil ...of being ...being held captive of evil ...
nevertheless there was one who was still held captive ...

THE PROVERBS Chpt 3
O' my son, forget not my law, but see that thine heart keep my commandments. For they shall prolong the days and years of thy life, and bring thee peace. Let mercy and faithfulness never go from thee: bind them about thy neck, and write them upon the tables of thine heart. So shalt thou find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and men. Put thy trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and he shall order thy goings. Be not wise in thine own conceit, but fear the Lord, and depart from evil: so shall thy navel be whole, and thy bones strong.
Honor the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstlings of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenteousness, and thy presses shall flow over with new wine. My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord, neither faint when thou are rebuked of him. For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth: and yet delighteth in him even as a father in his own son. Well is him that findeth wisdom, and obtaineth understanding, for the getting of it is better than any merchandise of silver, and the profit is better than gold. Wisdom is more worth than precious stones, and all the things that thou canst desire, are not to be compared unto her. Upon her right hand is long life, and upon her left hand is riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and her paths are peaceable. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her, and blessed are they that keep her fast.
With wisdom hath the Lord layed the foundation of the earth, and through understanding hath he stablished the heavens. Through his wisdom the deeps break up, and the clouds drop down of the dew. My son, let not these things depart from thine eyes, but keep my law and my counsel: So it be life unto thy soul, and grace unto thy mouth. Then shalt thou walk safely in thy way, and thy foot shall not stumble. If thou sleepest thou shalt not be afraid, but shall take thy rest and sleep sweetly. Thou needest not be afraid of any sudden fear, neither for the violent rushing of the ungodly, when it cometh. For the Lord shall besiege thee and keep thy foot that thou be not taken. Refuse not to do good unto him that should have it, so long as thine hand is able to do it. Say not unto thy neighbor: Go thy way and come again, tomorrow I will give thee: where as thou hast now to give him. Intend no hurt unto thy neighbor, seeing he hopeth to dwell in rest by thee. Strive not lightly with any man, where as he hath done thee no harm. Follow not a wicked man, and choose none of his ways: for the Lord abhoreth the froward, but his secret is among the righteous. The curse of the Lord is in the house of the ungodly, but he blesseth the dwellings of the righteous. As for the scornful, he shall laugh them to scorn, but he shall give grace unto the lowly. The wise shall have honor in possession, but shame is the promotion that fools shall have.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 57
But in the mean season the righteous perisheth, and no man regardeth it in his heart, Good godly people are taken away, and no man considereth it. Namely: that the righteous is conveyed away through the wicked: that he himself might be at rest, lie quietly upon his bed, and live after his own pleasure. Come hither therefore ye charmers children, ye sons of the *advoutrer, and the whore: Wherein take ye your pleasure? Upon whom gape ye with your mouth, and blare out your tongue? Are ye not children of *advoutry, and the seed of *dissimilation? Ye take your pleasure under the oaks, and under all green trees, the child being slain in the valleys, and the dens of stone. Thy part shall be with the stoney rocks by the river: Yee even these shall be thy part. For there thou hast poured meat and drink offerings unto them. Should I *oversee that? Thou hast made thy bed upon high mountains, thou wentest up thither, and there hast thou slain sacrifices. Behind the doors and posts, hast thou set up thy remembrance.
When thou hast discovered thyself to another then me, when thou wentest down and made thy bed wider ( that is ) when thou didest carve the certain yonder Idols, and lovest their couches, where thou sawest them. Thou wentest straight to kings with oil and diverse ointments (that is ) thou hast sent thy messengers far off, and yet are thou fallen into the pit thereby. Thou hast had trouble for the multitude of thine own ways, yet saidest thou never: I will leave off. Thou thinkest to have life ( or health ) of thy self, and therefore thou believest not that thou art sick. For when wilt thou be abashed or fear, seeing thou hast broken thy promise, and rememberest me not, neither hast me in thy heart? Thinkest thou, that I also will hold my peace ( as afore time ) that thou fearest me not? Yee verily I will declare thy goodness and thy works but they shall not profit thee when thou cryest, let thy chosen heap deliver thee. But the wind shall take them all away, and carry them in to the air. Nevertheless, they that put their trust in me, shall inherit the land, and have my holy hill in possession.
And therefore thus he sayeth: Make ready, make ready, and cleanse the street, take up what you can out of the way that leadeth to my people. For thus sayeth the high and excellent, even he that dwelleth in everlastingness, whose name is the holy one: I dwell high above and in the sanctuary, and with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit: that I may heal a troubled mind, and a contrite heart. For I chide not ever, and am not wroth without end. But the blasting goeth from me, though I make the breath. I am wroth with him for his covetousness and lust, I smite him, I hide me, and am angry, when he turneth himself, and followeth the by way of his own heart. But if I may see his right way again, I make him whole, I lead him and restore him unto them whom he maketh joyful, and that were sorry for him. I make the fruits of thanksgiving. I give peace unto them that are far off, and to them that are nye, say I the Lord, that make him whole. But the wicked are like the raging see, that cannot rest, whose water foameth with the mire and gravel. Even so the wicked have no peace, sayeth my God
*advoutrer (a /devoted; not /devoted, to God), the seed of *dissimilation? similar Yet NOT!
Should I *oversee that? (overlook that?)
*advoutry : see the word devoted, a-devoted; where the heart is: prefix: a meaning: not, without against. devoted to God, Christ, and the truth. Note also that this word is most often replaced in the kjv and other bibles of man with adultery. So that you know this word here is NOT adultery, see James 2 for adultery. dissimulation : Dictionary; the act or process of making or becoming dissimilar. distinct, diverse, unlike, incompatible, disparate. note also: the word "religion" is not found in all the original text.

THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 7
And he said unto me: There is no judge above God, and none that have understanding above the Highest. For there be many that perish, because they despise the law of God that is set before them. For God hath given straight commandment to such as come, that they know what they do, and how they should live: and if they keep this they should not be punished.
Nevertheless they were not obedient unto him, but spoke against him: and said moreover that there was no God, and that God regarded it not. His ways they have not known, his law they have despised, and denied his promises: in his statutes and ordinances they have not been faithful and steadfast, and have not performed his works.
And therefore Esdras unto the full, plenty: and to the empty, emptiness. Behold the time shall come, that those tokens which I have told thee, shall come to pass, and the bride shall appear: and the earth that is now passeth away, shall be showed: and whosoever is delivered from the afore said evils, shall see my wonders. For my son Jesus shall be openly declared, with those that be with him: and they that remain, shall be merry in four hundred years.
After these same years shall my son Christ die, and all men that have life, and the world will be turned into the old silence, seven days, like as in the fore judgements, so that no man shall remain. And after seven days, the world that yet awaketh not, shall be raised up, and shall die corrupt. And the earth shall restore those that have slept in her, and so shall the dust those that dwell in silence, and the secrete places shall deliver those that be committed unto them. And the most highest shall be openly declared upon the seat of judgement, and all mystery shall vanish away, and long suffering shall be gathered together. But the judgement shall continue, the truth shall remain, and faith shall wax strong, the works shall follow, and the reward shall be showed, the righteousnesses shall watch, and the unrighteousnesses shall bear no rule.
Then said I: Abraham prayed first for the sodomites, and Moses for the fathers that sinned in the wilderness, and he that came after him for Israel, in the time of Achas and Samuel: and David for the destruction, and Solomon for them that came into the Sanctuary, and Oseas for those that received rain, and for the dead, that he might live: and Ezechias for the people in the time of Sennacherib: and diverse other in like manner, which have prayed for many.
Even so now seeing the corrupt is grown up, and wickedness increased, and the righteous have prayed for the ungodly, wherefore shall it not be so now also?
He answered me, and said: This present world is not the end, there remaineth much honor in it, therefore they have prayed for the weak. But the day of dumb shall be the end of this time, and the beginning of the immortality for to come, wherein all corruption vanisheth all voluptuousness is loused and misbelief taken away, righteousness grown, and the verity spring up. Then shall no man be able to save him that is destroyed, nor to oppress him that hath gotten the victory. I answered then, and said: This is my first and last saying: that it had been better, not to have given the earth unto Adam: or else when it was given him, to keep him that he should not sin. For what profit is it for men now in this present time to live in heaviness, and after death to look for punishment? O' thou Adam, what hast thou done? For though it was thou that sinned, thou art not fallen alone, but we all that come of thee. For what profit is it unto us, if there be promised us immortal time, where as we meddle with deadly works? And that there is promised us an everlasting hope, where as we ourselves are evil and vain? And that there are laid up for us dwellings of health and freedom, where as we have lived evil? and that the worship of the Highest is kept to defend them, which have led a patient life, where as we have walked in the most wicked ways of all? And that there shall be showed a paradise, whose fruit endureth forever, wherein is freedom and medicine, where as we shall not go in? for we have walked in unpleasant places: And that the faces of them which have abstained, shall shine above the stars, where as our faces shall be black and dark? For while we lived and died unrighteously, we considered not, that we should suffer therefore after death!
Then answered he me, and said: This is the consideration and thought of the battle, which man hath upon the earth: That if he be overcome, he shall suffer as thou hast said. But if he get victory, he shall receive the thing that I say. For this is the life, whereof Moses spake unto the people, while he lived, saying: Choose the life, that thou mayest live. Nevertheless they believed him not neither the Prophets after him. No nor me which have spoken unto them, that heaviness should not reach unto them to their destruction like a joy is for to come over those, that have suffered themselves to be informed in salvation.
I answered then and said: I know Lord, that the Highest is merciful, in that he hath mercy upon them, which are not yet in the world, and upon those also that walk in his law: and that he is patient and long suffering toward those that have sinned in their works: and that he is liberal to give where as it requireth: and that he is of great mercy, for he multiplies his loving kindness toward those that are present, and that are past, and to them which are for to come. For if he multiplied not his mercies, the world shall not be made living, with those that dwell therein: He giveth also, for if he gave not of his goodness, that they which have done evil, might be eased, the ten thousand part of men should not be living. And if the judge forgave not those that be healed with his word, and if he would destroy the multitude that striveth, there should be very few left in an innumerable multitude
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 5
Then answered Jesus and said unto them: verily, verily, I say unto you: the son can do nothing of him self, but that he seeth the father do. For whatsoever he doeth, that doeth the son also. For the father loveth the son, and showeth him all things whatsoever he him self doeth. And he will show him greater works than these, because ye should marvel. For likewise as the father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them, even so the son quickeneth whom he will. Neither judgeth the father any man: but hath committed all judgement unto the son, because that all men should honour the son, even as they honour the father. He that honoureth not the son, the same honoureth not the father which hath sent him. Verily, verily I say unto you: He that heareth my words, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into damnation: but is scaped from death unto life.
Verily, verily I say unto you: the time shall come, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the son of God. And they that hear, shall live. For as the father hath life in him self, so likewise hath he given to the son to have life in him self: and hath given him power also to judge, in that he is the son of man. Marvel not at this: the hour shall come in the which all that are in the graves, shall hear his voice, and shall come forth: they that have done good unto the resurrection of life: and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
I can of mine own self do nothing at all. As I hear, I judge, and my judgement is just, because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the father which hath sent me. If I bear witness of my self, my witness is not true. There is another that beareth witness of me, and I am sure that the witness which he beareth of me, is true.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 6
Verily, verily I say unto you, he that believeth on me, hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat Manna in the wilderness and are dead? This is that bread which cometh from heaven that he which eateth of it, should also not die. I am that living bread which came down from heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever. And the bread that I will give, is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
And the Jewes strove among themselves saying: How can this fellow give us his flesh to eat? Then Jesus said unto them: Verily, verily I say unto you, except ye eat the flesh of the son of man, and drink his blood, ye shall not have life in you. Whosoever eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life: and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me and I in him. As the living father hath sent me, even so live I by my father: and he that eateth me shall live by me. This is the bread which came from heaven: not as your fathers have eaten Manna and are dead. He that eateth of this bread, shall live ever.
These things said he in the synagogue as he taught in Capernaum. Many therefore of his disciples: when they had heard this, said: this is an hard saying: who can abide the hearing of it? Jesus knew in himself, that his disciples murmured at it, and said unto them: Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall see the son of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing. The words that I speak unto you, are spirit and life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning, which they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said: Therefore said I unto you: that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my father.
From that time many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus to the twelve: will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered: Master to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life, and we believe and know that thou art Christ the son of the living God. Jesus answered them: Have not I chosen you twelve, and yet one of you is the devil? He spake it of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon. For he it was that should betray him, and was one of the twelve
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 10
Verily, verily I say unto you: he that entereth not in by the door, into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way: the same is a thief and a robber. He that goeth in by the door, is the shepherd of the sheep: to him the porter openeth, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he hath sent forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but will fly from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. This similitude spake Jesus unto them. But they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them. Then said Jesus unto them again. Verily, verily I say unto you: I am the door of the sheep. All, even as many as came before me, are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be safe, and shall go in and out and find pasture. The thief cometh not but for to steal, kill and destroy. I am come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly.
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. An hired servant, which is not the shepherd, neither the sheep are his own, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and flyeth, and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hired servant flyeth, because he is an hired servant, and careth not for the sheep. I am that good shepherd, and know mine, and am known of mine. As my father knoweth me: even so know I my father. And I give my life for the sheep: and other sheep I have, which are not of this fold. Them also must I bring, that they may hear my voice, and that there may be one flock and one shepherd.
Therefore doth my father love me, because I put my life from me, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me: but I put it away of myself. I have power to put it from me, and have power to take it again: This commandment have I received of my father. And there was a dissension again among the Jewes for these sayings, and many of them said. He hath the devil, and is mad: why hear ye him? Other said, these are not the words of him that hath the devil. Can the devil open the eyes of the blind?
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 20
The same day at night, which was the morrow after the Saboth day, when the doors were shut, where the disciples were assembled together for fear of the Jewes, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and said to them: peace be with you. And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands, and his side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord. Then said Jesus to them again: peace be with you. As my father sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said that, he breathed on them and said unto them: Receive the holy ghost. Whosoevers sins ye remit they are remitted unto them. And whosoevers sins ye retain, they are retained.
But Thomas one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples said unto him: we have seen the Lord. And he said unto them: except I see in his hands the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. And after eight days again his disciples were with in, and Thomas with them. Then came Jesus when the doors were shut, and stood in the midst and said: peace be with you.
After that said he to Thomas: bring thy finger hither and see my hands, and bring thy hand and thrust it into my side, and be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered and said unto him: my Lord, and my God. Jesus said unto him: Thomas, because thou hast seen me, therefore thou believest: Happy are they that have not seen, and yet believe.
And many other signs did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. These are written that ye might believe, that Jesus is Christ the son of God, and that in believing ye might have life through his name
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 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 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.
