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 dream during the 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 loved God his father and Jesus his brother and Lord.
and that in spirit and truth.
and the man was moved to see ...
and he was moved to the left ...to see ...if he would have rest ...
evenso he did not ...
and he was moved to the right ...to see ...if he would have rest ...
evenso he did not ...
Yet in prayer and in spirit and truth...he was given comfort and rest ...
and he looked ...not to the left ...nor to the right ...

EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 4
Thou son of man, take thee a tile stone, and lay it before thee, and describe upon it the city of Jerusalem, how it is besieged, how bulwarks and strong ditches are graven on every side of it: describe also the tents, and an host of men round about it.*laud (praise, exalt)
Moreover, take an iron pan, and set it between thee and the city, instead of an iron wall. Then set thy face toward it, besiege it, and lay ordinance against it, to win it. This shall be a token unto the house of Israel. But thou shall sleep upon thy left side, and lay the sin of the house of Israel upon thee. Certain days appointed, thou shalt sleep upon that side, and bear their sins. Nevertheless, I will appoint thee a time ( to put out their sins ) and the number of the days: Three hundred and ninety days must thou bear the wickedness of the house of Israel. When thou hast fulfilled these days lie again, and sleep upon thy right side forty days, and bear the sins of the house of Judah.
A day for a year, a day ( I say ) for a year will I ever lay upon thee. Therefore set now thy face against that besieged Jerusalem, and discover thine arm, that thou may prophesy against it.
Behold, I will lay chains upon thee, that thou shalt not turn thee from me one side to another, till thou hast ended the days of thy siege.
Wherefore, take unto thee wheat, barley, beans, growell seed, and Millium and fitches: and put these together in a vessel, and make thee loaves of bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou must lie upon thy side: that thou mayest have bread to eat, for three hundred and ninety days.
And the meat that thou eatest, shall have a certain weight appointed: namely twenty shekels every day. This appointed meat thou shall eat daily, from the beginning to the end.
Thou shalt drink also a certain measure of water: Namely, the sixth part of an Hin shalt thou drink daily from the beginning to the end. Barley cakes shalt thou eat, yet shalt thou first strike them over with mans dung, that they may see it. And with that said the Lord: Even thus shall the children of Israel eat their defiled bread in the midest of the Gentiles, among whom I will scatter them.
Then said I: Oh Lord God. Behold, my soul was yet never stained: for from my youth up to this hour. I did never eat of a dead carcass, or that which was slain of wild beasts, neither came there ever any unclean flesh in my mouth.
Where unto he answered me, and said: Well then, I will grant thee to take cows dung, for the dung of a man, and to strike the bread over with all, before them.
And he said unto me: Behold thou son of man, I will minish all the provision of bread in Jerusalem., so that they shall weigh their bread, and eat it with scarceness. But as for water, they shall have a very little measure thereof, to drink. And when they have no more bread or water, one shall be destroyed with another, and famish away for their wickedness
THE FIRST BOOK OF CHRONICLES Chpt 28
And now I say unto you before all Israel the congregation of the Lord, and in the audience of our God: keep and seek for all the commandments of the Lord your God, that ye may enjoy a good land and inherit your children after you for ever. And thou Salomon my son: know God thy father and serve him with a pure heart and lust of soul. For the Lord searcheth all hearts and understandeth all the Imaginations of thoughts. If thou shalt seek him, he will be found of thee: But and if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever. Take heed now, for the Lord hath chosen thee, to build an house of thy sanctuary. Be strong and do it.
THE PSALMS Chpt 81
When thou calledst upon me in trouble, I helped thee, and heard thee, what time as the storm fell upon thee, * I proved thee also at the water of strife. Selah.
Hear, O' my people, for I assure thee, O' Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me:
There shall no strange gods be in thee, neither shalt thou worship any other god.
I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
But my people would not hear my voice, and Israel would no obey me. So I gave them up unto their own hearts lust, and let them follow their own imaginations.
O' that my people would obey me, for if Israel would walk in my ways:
I should soon put down their enemies, and turn my hand against their adversaries.
The haters of the Lord should *misse Israel, but their time should have endured for ever.
He should feed them with the finest wheat and flour, and satisfy them with honey out of the stony rock
THE PROVERBS Chpt 6
There be six things which the Lord hateth, and the seventh he utterly abhoreth: A proud look, a *dissembling tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, an heart that goeth about with wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to do mischief, a false witness that bringeth up lies, and such one as soweth discord among brethren.
My son, keep thy fathers commandments, and forsake not the law of thy mother. Put them up together in thine heart, and bind them about thy neck. That they may lead thee where thou goest, preserve thee when thou art a sleep, and when thou awakest, thou mayest talk of them. For the commandment is a lantern, and the law a light: yee chastening and nurture is the way of life: that we may keep thee from the evil woman, and flattering tongue of the harlot: that thou lust not after her beauty in thine heart, and lest thou be taken with her fair looks. An Harlot will make a man to beg for his bread, but a married woman will hunt for that precious life. Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burnt? Or can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be hurt? Even so, whosoever goeth in to his neighbors wife, and toucheth her shall not be unguilty. Men do not utterly despise a thief, that stealeth to satisfy his soul, when he is hungry: But if he may be gotten, he restoreth seven times as much, or else he maketh recompense with all the goods of his house. But whoso committeth *advoutry with a woman, he is a fool, and bringeth his life to destruction. He getteth himself also shame and dishonor, such as shall never be put out. For the jealousy and wrath of the man will not be entreated, no though thou wouldest offer him great gifts to make amends, he will not receive them
*Emmet (ant) *a dissembling (KJV and other bibles of man = lying) tongue.
*advouterer: *advouterer: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God. mark the first sin of Adam. also see James 2 for adultery. kjv replaces this word throughout the text nearly 70 times with "adultery"
THE SECOND TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 10
I Paul my self beseech you by the meekness and softness of Christ which when I am present among you, am of no reputation, but am bold toward you being absent. I beseech you that I need not to be bold when I am present (with that same confidence, wherewith I am supposed to be bold) against some which repute us as though we walked carnally. Nevertheless though we walk compassed with the flesh, yet we war not fleshly. For the weapons of our war are not carnal things, but things mighty in God, to cast down strongholds, wherewith we overthrow imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God and bring into captivity all understanding to the obedience of Christ, and are ready to take vengeance on all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. Look ye on things after the outer appearance?
If any man trust in him self that he is Christs, let the same also consider of him self, that as he is Christs, even so are we Christs. And though I should boast my self somewhat more of our authority which the Lord hath given us to edify and not to destroy you, it should not be to my shame. This say I, lest I should seem as though I went about to make you afraid with letters. For the epistles (saith he) are sore and strong: but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech rude. Let him that is such think on this wise, that as we are in words by letters when we are absent, such are we in deeds when we are present.
For we cannot find in our hearts to make ourselves of the number of them, or to compare ourselves to them, which *laud them selves nevertheless while they measure them selves with them selves, and compare them selves with them selves, they understand nought. But we will not rejoice above measure: but according to the quantity of the measure which God hath distributed unto us, a measure that reacheth even unto you. For we stretch not out ourselves beyond measure as though we had not reached unto you. For even unto you have we come with the gospel of Christ, and we boast not our selves out of measure in other mens labors. Yee and we hope, when your faith is increased among you, to be magnified according to our measure, more largely, and to preach the gospel in those regions which are beyond you: and not to rejoice of that which is by another mans measure prepared already. Let him that rejoiceth, rejoice in the Lord. For he that praiseth him self, is not allowed: but he whom the Lord praiseth
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.
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 SECOND TO THE THESSALONIANS Chpt 2
We beseech you brethren by the coming of our Lord *Jesu Christ, and in that we shall assemble unto him, that ye be not suddenly moved from your mind and be not troubled neither by spirit, neither by words, nor yet by letter which should seem to come from us, as though the day of Christ were at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means, for the Lord cometh not, except there come a departing first, and that, that sinful man be opened, the son of *perdition which is an adversary, and is exalted above all that is called God, or that is worshipped: so that he shall sit as God in that temple of God, and show himself as God.
Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth: even that he might be uttered at his time. For the mystery of that iniquity doth he already work: till he which now only letteth, be taken out of the way. And then shall that wicked be uttered, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the appearance of his coming even him whose coming is by the working of Satan, with all lying power, signs and wonders: and in all deceivableness of unrighteousness, among them that perish: because they received not the love of the truth, that they might have been saved. And therefore God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe lies: that all they might be damned which believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
