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 dream during the 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 city of the world of the worldly.
even as though from above ...
and the city of the world of the worldly was racing...raging and racing...
even raging and racing in wretched unGodlieness ...
nevertheless i was shown a man ...from above ...
and the man loved God his father and Jesus his brother and Lord.
and that in spirit and truth.
and he was running through the city ...
and through the raging and racing wretched unGodlieness ...
and he went wheresoever he was moved to go ...
and i was taken closer ...
and a man of color appeared ...
and the man of color went to the mans shoes ...
and tied upon his shoes ...like a permit ...like a little button...
and it was like a button that gave license to go anywhere in the city ...
even like a taxi ...is allowed ...
and the man ran the more ...
and deep into the city ...
and through the very...heart of the city ...
and went on the more ...on the way ...the way out ...out of the city ...
and on the very edge of the city ...going out of it ...he looked ...
and he wondered how many might also come out of that raging and racing in wretched unGodlieness ...
even so his eyes were set on the land ...of the earth ...outside and ...beyond the city ...
even the earth without ...with out the city ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 12
These are the ordinances and laws which ye shall observe to do in the land which the Lord God of thy fathers giveth thee to possess it, as long as ye live upon the earth. See that ye destroy all places where the nations which ye conquer serve their gods, upon high mountains and on high hills and under every green tree. Overthrow their altars and break their pillars and burn their groves with fire and hew down the images of their gods, and bring the names of them to nought out of that place. See ye do not so unto the Lord your God but ye shall enquire the place which the Lord your God shall have chosen out of all your tribes to put his name there and there to dwell. And thither thou shalt come, and thither ye shall bring your burnt sacrifices and your offerings, your tithes and heave offerings of your hands, your vows and free will offerings and thy first born of your oxen and of your sheep. And there ye shall eat before the Lord your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye lay your hands on, both ye and your households, because the Lord thy God hath blessed thee.
Ye shall do after nothing that we do here this day, every man what seemeth him good in his own eyes. For ye are not yet come to rest nor unto the inheritance which the Lord your God giveth you. But ye shall go over Jordan and dwell in the land which the Lord your God giveth you to inherit, and he shall give you rest from all your enemies round about: and ye shall dwell in safety.
Therefore when the Lord your God hath chosen a place to make his name dwell there, thither ye shall bring all that I command you, your burntsacrifices and your offerings, your tithes and the heaveofferings of your hands and all your Godly vows which ye vow unto the Lord. And ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God, both ye, your sons and your daughters, your servants and your maids and the Levite that is within your gates for he hath neither part nor inheritance with you.
Take heed that thou offer not thy burntofferings in whatsoever place thou seest: but in the place which the Lord shall have chosen among one of thy tribes, there thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings and there thou shalt do all that I command thee. Notwithstanding thou mayst kill and eat flesh in all thy cities, whatsoever thy soul lusteth after according to the blessing of the Lord thy God which he hath given thee both the unclean and the clean mayst thou eat, even as the roe and the hart: only eat not the blood, but pour it upon the earth as water. Thou mayst not eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine and of thy oil, either the first born of thine oxen or of thy sheep, neither any of thy vows which thou vowest, nor thy freewillofferings or heave offerings of thine hands: but thou must eat them before the Lord thy God, in the place which the Lord thy God hath chosen: both thou thy son and thy daughter, thy servant and thy maid and the Levite that is within thy gates: and thou shalt rejoice before the Lord thy God, in all that thou puttest thine hand to. And beware that thou forsake not the Levite as long as thou livest upon the earth. If (when the Lord thy God hath enlarged thy coasts as he hath promised thee) thou say: I will eat flesh, because thy soul longeth to eat flesh: then thou shalt eat flesh, whatsoever thy soul lusteth. If the place which the Lord thy God hath chosen to put his name there be too far from thee, then thou mayst kill of thy oxen and of thy sheep which the Lord hath given thee as I have commanded thee, and thou mayst eat in thine own city whatsoever thy soul lusteth. Neverthelater, as the roe and the hart is eaten, even so thou shalt eat it: the unclean and the clean indifferently thou shalt eat. But be strong that thou eat not the blood. For the blood, that is the life and thou mayst not eat the life with the flesh: thou mayst not eat it: but must pour it upon the earth as water. See thou eat it not therefore that it may go well with thee and with thy children after thee, when thou shalt have done that which is right in the sight of the Lord.
But thy holy things which thou hast and thy vows, thou shalt take and go unto the place which the Lord hath chosen, and thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, both flesh and blood upon the altar of the Lord thy God, and the blood of thine offerings thou shalt pour out upon the altar of the Lord thy God, and shalt eat the flesh. Take heed and hear all these words which I command thee that it may go well with thee and with thy children after thee for ever, when thou doest that which is good and right in the sight of the Lord thy God.
When the Lord thy God hath destroyed the nations before thee, whither thou goest to conquer them, and when thou hast conquered them, and dwelt in their lands: Beware that thou be not taken in a snare after them, after that they be destroyed before thee, and that thou ask not after their gods saying: how did these nations serve their gods, that I may do so likewise? Nay, thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God: for all abominations which the Lord hated did they unto their gods. For they burnt both their sons and their daughters with fire unto their gods. But whatsoever I command you that take heed ye do: and put nought thereto, nor take ought therefrom
THE PSALMS Chpt 18
I will love thee, ( O' Lord ) my strength.
The Lord is my *succor, my refuge, my Savior: my God, my helper, in whom I will trust: my buckler, the horn of my health, and my protection.
I will praise the Lord, and call upon him, so shall I be save from mine enemies.
The sorrows of death compassed me, and the brooks of ungodliness made me afraid.
The pains of hell came about me, the snares of death took hold upon me.
Yet in my trouble I called upon the Lord, and complained unto my God. So he heard my voice out of his holy temple, and my complaint came before him, yee even into his ears.
Then the earth trembled and quaked, the very foundations of the hills shook and were removed, because he was wroth.
There went a smoke out of his nostrils, and a consuming fire out of his mouth, so that coals were kindled at it.
He bowed the heavens, and came down, and it was dark was under his feet.
He rode upon the Cherub, and did fly: he came flying with the wings of the wind.
He made darkness his pavilion round about him, with dark waters and thick clouds to cover him.
At the brightness of his presence the clouds removed, with hail stones and coals of fire.
The Lord also thundered out of the heaven, and the height gave his thunder with hail stones and coals of fire.
He sent out his arrows and scattered them, he cast sore lightnings, and destroyed them.
The springs of waters were seen, and the foundations of the round world were discovered at thy chiding (O' Lord) at the blasting and breath of thy displeasures.
He sent from the height to fetch me, and took me out of great waters.
He delivered me from my strong enemies, and from my foes which were too mighty for me.
They prevented me in the time of my trouble, but the Lord was my defense.
He brought me forth also into liberty: and delivered me, because he had a favor unto me.
The Lord shall reward me after my righteous dealing, and according to the cleanness of my hands shall he recompensed me.
For I have kept the ways of the Lord: and have not behaved myself wickedly against my God.
I have an eye unto all his laws, and cast not out his commandments from me.
Uncorrupt will I be before him, and will I *eschue my own wickedness.
Therefore shall the Lord reward me after my righteous dealing, and according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
With the holy thou shalt be holy, and with the innocent thou shalt be innocent.
With the clean thou shalt be clean, and with the *froward thou shalt be froward.
For thou shalt save the poor oppressed, and bring down the high looks of the proud.
Thou lightest my candle, O' Lord my God: thou makest my darkness to be light.
For in thee I can discomfort an host of men: yee in my God I can leap over the wall.
The way of God is a perfect way: the words of the Lord are tried in fire: he is a shield of defense, for all them that trust in him.
For who is God, but the Lord? Or, who hath any strength, but our God?
It is God that girdeth me with strength, and made my way uncorrupt.
He hath made my feet like hertes feet, and set me up on high.
He teacheth my hands to fight, and maketh mine arms to break even a bow of steel.
Thou hast given me the defense of thy health, thy right hand upholdeth me, and thy loving correction maketh me great.
Thou hast made room enough under me for to go, that my foot steps should not slide.
I will follow upon mine enemies, and take them: I will not turn till they be discomforted.
I will smite them, they shall not be able to stand, but fall under my feet.
Thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle, thou hast thrown them all down under me, that rose up against me.
Thou hast made mine enemies to turn their backs upon me, thou hast destroyed them that hate me.
They cried, but there was none to help them: yee even unto the Lord, but he heard them not.
I will beat them small as the dust clay in the wind, I will cast them out as clay in the streets.
Thou shalt deliver me from the strivings of the people, thou shalt make me the head of the Heathen.
As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me, but the strange children disassemble with me.
The strange children are waxen old, and go halting out of their paths.
The Lord liveth: and blessed be my helper, praise be the God of my health.
Even the God which seeth that I be avenged, and subdueth the people unto me.
It is he that delivereth me from my cruel enemies: thou shalt lift me up from them that rise against me, thou shalt rid me from the wicked man.
For this cause I will give thanks unto thee ( O' Lord ) among the gentiles, and sing praises unto thy name.
Great prosperity giveth he unto his king, and showeth loving kindness unto David his anointed, yee and to his seed for evermore
*succor, (strength / security) *eschue: avoid, shun, escape. *froward = stubbornly contrary, abstinent RN
THE PSALMS Chpt 42
To the Chaunter, a *monition of the sons of *Korah
Like as the hert panteth after the water brooks, so longeth my soul after thee, O' God. My soul is a thirst for God, yee even for the living God: when shall I come, and behold the face of God? My tears are my meat day and night, while it is daily said unto me: Where is now thy God?
Now when I think there upon, I pour out my heart by myself: for I would *faine go hence with the multitude, and pass over with them unto the house of God, in the voice of praise and thanksgiving, among such as keep holy day.
Why art thou so full of heaviness ( O' my soul ) and why art thou unquiet within me?
O' put thy trust in God, for I will yet give him thanks, for the help of his countenance. My God, my soul is vexed within me: therefore I remember the land of Jordan, and the little hill of Hermonim. One deep calleth another with the voice of thy whistles, all thy waves and water floods are gone over me. The Lord hath promised his lovingkindness daily, therefore I will praise him in the night season, and make my prayer unto the God of my life.
I will say unto God my stoney rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I thus heavily, while the enemy oppresseth me? While my bones are broken, and while mine enemies cast me in the teeth, daily saying unto me: Where is now thy God?
Why art thou so heavy ( O' my soul )? and why art thou so disquieted within me?
O' put thy trust in God, for I will yet thank him for the help of his countenance, and because he is my God
*monition: Advice to take forewarning of something imminent
*Korah = baldness, something lost. *faine = obliged /or willingly RN
THE BALLET OF BALLETS OF SOLOMON Chpt 2
*I am the flower of the field, a lily of the valleys: as the rose among the thorns, so is my love among the daughters.
Like as the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. My delight is to sit under his shadow, for his fruit is sweet to my throat. He bringeth me in to *his wine cellar, and **loveth me specially well. Refesheth me with grapes, comfort me with apples, for I am sick of love. His left hand layeth under my head, and his right hand embraceth me.
I charge you, (O' ye daughters of Jerusalem) by the Roes and hinds of the field, that ye wake not up my love nor touche her, till she be content herself.
Me think I hear the voice of my beloved: lo, there cometh he hopping upon the mountains, and leaping over the little hills. My beloved is like a Roe or a young hart. Behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh in at the window, and peepeth through the *grate. My beloved answered and said unto me,
Stand up my love, my dove, my beautiful, and come: For lo, the winter is now past, and the rain is away and gone. The flowers are come up in the field, the twisting time is come, and the voice of the turtle dove is heard in our land. The fig tree bringeth forth her figs, the vines bear blossoms, and have a good smell. Stand up my love, my beautiful, and come (O' my dove) out of the caves of the rocks, out of the holes in the wall: O' let me see thy countenance and hear thy voice, for sweet is thy voice, and fair is thy face.
Get us the foxes, yee the little foxes, that hurt the vines, for our vines bear blossoms.
My love is mine, and I am his, which feedeth among the lilies, until the day break, and till the shadows be gone. Come again privately ( O' my beloved ) like as a Roe or a young hart unto the mountains
*I am the flower of the field, (kjv = rose of Sharon)

THE BALLET OF BALLETS OF SOLOMON Chpt 8
O' that I might find thee without, and kiss thee, whom I love as my brother which suck my mothers breasts: and that thou wouldest not be offended, if I took thee, and brought thee in to my mothers house: that thou mightest teach me, and that I might give thee drink of spiced wine and of the sweet sap of my pomegranates. His left hand layeth under my head and his right hand embraceth me.
I charge you, O' daughters of Jerusalem, that ye wake not up my love, nor touch her, till she be content herself.
What is she this, that cometh up from the wilderness, and leaneth upon her loved?
I am the same that waketh thee up among the apple trees, where thy mother bare thee, where thy mother brought thee in to the world.
O' set me as a seal upon thine heart, and as a seal upon thine arm: for love is mighty as the death, and jealousy as the hell. Her coals are of fire, and a very flame of the Lord: so that many waters are not able to quench love, neither may the streams drown it. Yee if a man would give all the good of his house for love, he should count it nothing.
When our love is told our young sister, whos breasts are not yet grown, what shall we do unto her?
If she be a wall, we shall build a silver bulwark there upon: if she be a tower, we shall fasten her with borders of Cedar tree.
If I be a wall, and my breasts like towers, then am I as one that hath found favor in his sight.
Solomon had a vineyard at Baal Hamon, this vineyard delivered he unto the keepers: that every one for the fruit thereof should give him a thousand pieces of silver.
But my vineyard, O' Solomon, giveth thee a thousand, and two hundred to the keepers of the fruit. Thou that dwellest in the gardens, O' let me hear thy voice, that my companions may harken to the same
O' get thee away, my love, as a roe or
a young hart unto sweet smelling mountains
ABACUK or HABACUK Chpt 3
For the fig trees shall not be green, and the vines shall bare no fruit. The labor of the olive shall be but lost, and the land shall bring no corn: the sheep shall be taken out of the fold, and there shall be no cattle in the stalls. But as for me, I will be glad in the Lord, and will rejoice in God my Savior. The Lord God is my strength, he shall make my feet as the feet of *herts: and he which giveth the victory, shall bring me to my high places singing upon my psalms

THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 18
And after that, I saw another Angel come from heaven, having great power, and the earth was lightened with his brightness. And he cried mightily with a strong voice saying: Great Babylon is fallen, is fallen: and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of all foul spirits, and a cage of all unclean and hateful birds for all nations have drunken of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and her merchants are waxed rich of the abundance of her pleasures.
And I heard another voice from heaven, say: come away from her my people, that ye be not partakers in her sins, that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins are gone up to heaven, and God hath remembered her wickedness. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and give her double according to her works. And pour in double to her in the same cup which she filled unto you. And as much as she glorified herself and lived wantonly so much pour ye in for her of punishment and sorrow, for she said in her heart: I sit being a queen and am no widow and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come at one day, death, and sorrow, and hunger, and she shall be burnt with fire: for strong is the Lord God which judgeth her.
And the kings of the earth shall beweep her and wail over her, which have committed fornication with her, and have lived wantonly with her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, and shall stand afar off, for fear of her punishment, saying . Alas, Alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city: for at one hour is her judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and wail in themselves, for no man will buy their ware any more, the ware of gold and silver, and precious stones, neither of pearl, and raynes and purple, and scarlet, and all thine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass and of iron, and cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and bodies and souls of men.
And the apples that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee. And all things which were dainty, and had in price are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more. The merchants of these things which were waxed rich, shall stand afar off from her, for fear of the punishment of her, weeping and wailing, and saying: Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in raynes, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stone, and pearls: for at one hour so great riches is come to nought.
And every ship governor, and all they that occupied ships, and shipmen which work in the sea, stood afar off, and cried, when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying: what city is like unto this great city? And they cast dust on their heads, and cried weeping, and wailing, and said: Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea, by the reason of her costliness, for at one hour is she made desolate.
Rejoice over her thou heaven, and ye holy Apostles and Prophets: for God hath given your judgement on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying: with such violence shall that great city Babylon be cast, and shall be found no more. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more in thee: and no crafts man, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee. And the sound of a mill shall be heard no more in thee, and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride, shall be heard no more in thee, for thy merchants were the great men of the earth. And with thine enchantment were deceived all nations: and in her was found the blood of the Prophets, and of the saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
