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 an heap of men and woman ...
and they all were talking of their own right thinking and religiousness...
and men over wives and women with their own self taught right thinking ...
and women over husbands and other men with their own self taught right thinking...
and they lead ...lead (heaviness) their families and friends and anyone else to their own thinking ...
and their own imaginations of rightness was always salted with a little of the truth.
and peppered with similitude's and platitudes of self righteous religiousness.
and there was an out pouring of all things of religiousness ...
even every each thing ...
even like a flood of similitude's of rightness ...of any imagination ...
and that no matter how un Godly ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 4
And he began again to teach by the sea side. And there gathered together unto him much people, so greatly that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea, and all the people was by the sea side on the shore. And he taught them many things in similitudes and said unto them in his doctrine. Hearken to: behold, there went out a sower to sow. And it fortuned as he sowed, that some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. Some fell on stony ground where it had not much earth: and by and by sprang up, because it had not depth of earth: but as soon as the sun was up it caught heat, and because it had not rooting, withered away.
And some fell among the thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, so that it gave no fruit. And some fell upon good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang and grew, and brought forth: some thirty fold some sixty fold, and some an hundred fold. And he said unto them: he that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked him of the similitude. And he said unto them. To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God. But unto them that are without, shall all things be done in similitudes: that when they see, they shall see, and not discern: and when they hear they shall hear, and not understand: lest at any time they should turn, and their sins should be forgiven them. And he said unto them: perceive ye not this similitude? how then should ye understand all other similitudes?
The sower soweth the word. And they that are by the ways side, where the word is sown, are they to whom as soon as they have heard it, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts. And likewise they that are sown on the stony ground, are they: which when they have heard the word, at once receive it with gladness, yet have no roots in themselves, and so endure but a time: and *anon as trouble and persecution ariseth for the words sake, they fall immediately. And they that are sown among the thorns, are such as hear the word: and the care of this world and the deceitfulness of riches and the lusts of other things, enter in and choke the word, and it is made unfruitful. And those that were sown in good ground, are they that hear the word and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirty fold some sixty fold, some an hundred fold.
And he said unto them: is the candle lighted to be put under a bushel, or under the table, and not rather to be put on a candlestick? For there is nothing so *privy, that shall not be opened: neither so secret, but that it shall come abroad. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. And he said unto them: take heed what ye hear. With what measure ye *mete, with the same shall it be measured unto you again. And unto you that hear, shall more be given. For unto him that hath, shall it be given: and from him that hath not, shall be taken away, even that he hath.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 7
The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things about him. Wherefore the Pharisees and high priests sent ministers forth to take him. Then said Jesus unto them: Yet am I a little while with you, and then go I unto him that sent me. Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither can ye not come. Then said the Jewes between themselves: whither will he go, that we shall not find him? Will he go among the gentiles which are scattered all abroad, and teach the gentiles? What manner of saying is this that he said: ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither can ye not come?
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried saying: If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink. He that believeth on me, as sayeth the scripture out of his belly shall flow rivers of water of life. This spake he of the spirit which they that believed on him, should receive. For the holy ghost was not yet there, because that Jesus was not yet glorified.
Many of the people, when they heard this saying said: of a truth this is a prophet. Other said, this is Christ: Some said: shall Christ come out of Galilee? Saith not the scripture that Christ shall come of the seed of David: and out of the town of Bethlehem where David was? So was there dissension among the people about him. And some of them would have taken him: but no man laid hands on him. Then came the ministers to the high priests and Pharisees. And they said unto them: why have ye not brought him? The servants answered: never man spake as this man doeth. Then answered them the Pharisees: are ye also deceived? Doth any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believe on him? But the common people which know not the law? are cursed. Nicodemus said unto them: He that came to Jesus by night, and was one of them. Doth our law judge any man before it hear him, and know what he hath done? They answered and said unto him: art thou also of Galile? Search and look, for out of Galile ariseth no Prophet. And every man went unto his own house
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 8
Then said they unto him, who art thou? And Jesus said unto them: Even the very same thing that I say unto you. I have many things to say, and to judge of you. Ye and he that sent me is true. And I speak in the world, those things which I have heard of him. How be it they understood not that he spake of his father. Then said Jesus unto them: when ye have lift up on high the son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself: but as my father hath taught me, even so I speak: and he that sent me, is with me. The father hath not left me alone, for I do always those things that please him.
As he spake these words, many believed on him.
Then said Jesus to those Jewes which believed on him. If ye continue in my words, then are ye my very disciples, and shall know the truth: and the truth shall make you free. They answered him: We be Abrahams seed, and were never bond to any man: why sayest thou then, ye shall be made free?
Jesus answered them: Verily, verily I say unto you, that whosoever committeth sin, is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: But the son abideth ever. If the son therefore shall make you free, then are ye free indeed. I know that ye are Abrahams seed: but ye seek means to kill me, because my sayings have no place in you. I speak that I have seen with my father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him: Abraham is our father. Jesus said unto them. If ye were Abrahams children ye would do the deeds of Abraham. But now ye go about to kill me, a man that have told you the truth which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they unto him: we were not born of fornication. We have one father, which is God. Jesus said unto them: if God were your father, then would ye love me. For I proceeded forth and come from God. Neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not know my speech? Even because ye cannot abide the hearing of my words.
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, then speaketh he of his own. For he is a liar, and the father thereof. And because I tell you the truth, therefore ye believe me not.
Which of you can rebuke me of sin? If I say the truth, why do not ye believe me? He that is of God, heareth Gods words. Ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. Then answered the Jewes and said unto him: Say we not well that thou art a Samaritane and hast the devil? Jesus answered: I have not the devil: but I honour my father, and ye have dishonored me. I seek not mine own praise: but there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
Verily, verily I say unto you, if a man keep my sayings, he shall never see death. Then said the Jewes to him. Now know we that thou hast the devil. Abraham is dead, and also the Prophets: and yet thou sayest, if a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death. Art thou greater then our father Abraham, which is dead? and the Prophets are dead. Whom makest thou thyself?
Jesus answered: If I honour my self, mine honour is nothing worth. It is my father that honoureth me, which ye say, is your God, and ye have not known him: but I know him. And if I should say, I know him not, I should be a liar like unto you. But I know him, and keep his saying.
Your father Abraham was glad to see my day, and he saw it and rejoiced. Then said the Jewes unto him: thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them: Verily, verily I say unto you: *yer Abraham was, I am. Then took they up stones, to cast at him. But Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 11
And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus come forth. And he that was dead, came forth, bound hand and foot with grave bonds, and his face was bound with a napkin. Jesus said unto them: loose him, and let him go. Then many of the Jewes which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him. But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what Jesus had done.
Then gathered the high Priests and the Pharisees a council, and said: what do we? This man doeth many miracles. If we let him scape thus, all men will believe on him, and the Romans shall come and take away our country and the people. And one of them named Caiphas which was the high priest that same year, said unto them: Ye perceive nothing at all nor yet consider that it is expedient for us, that one man die for the people, and not that all the people perish. This spake he not of himself, but being high Priest that same year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for the people, and not for the people only, but that he should gather together in one the children of God which were scattered abroad. From that day forth they held a counsel together, for to put him to death.
Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jewes: but went his way thence unto a country nigh to a wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there haunted with his disciples. And the Jewes *ester was nigh at hand and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the *ester, to purify themselves. Then sought they for Jesus, and spake between themselves as they stood in the temple: What think ye, seeing he cometh not to the feast? The high Priests and Pharisees had given a commandment, that if any man knew where he were, he should show it, that they might take him
THE SECOND TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 3
This understand, that in the last days shall come parlous times. For the men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, cursed speakers, disobedient to father and mother, unthankful, unholy, unkind, trucebreakers, stubborn, false accusers, rioters, fierce despisers of them which are good, traitors, heady, high minded, greedy upon voluptuousness more then lovers of God, having a similitude of Godly living, but have denied the power thereof: and such abhor. Of this sort are they which enter into houses, and bring into bondage women laden with sin, which women are led of *diverse lusts, ever learning and never able to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
As Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, even so do these resist the truth, men they are of corrupt minds, and lewd as concerning the faith: but they shall prevail no longer. For their madness shall be uttered unto all men as theirs was. But thou hast seen the experience of my doctrine, fashion of living, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, patience, persecutions, and afflictions which happened unto me at Antioche, at Iconium and at Lystra: which persecutions I suffered patiently. And from them all the Lord delivered me. Yea and all that will live godly in Christ *Jesu, must suffer persecutions. But the evil men and deceivers shall wax worse and worse, while they deceive and are deceived themselves.
But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned, which also were committed unto thee, seeing thou knowest of whom thou hast learned them and for as much also as thou hast known holy scripture of a child, which is able to make thee wise unto salvation through the faith which is in Christ Jesu. For all scripture given by inspiration of God, is profitable to teach, to improve, to amend and to instruct in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect and prepared unto all good works
*diverse (various dogmas and doctrines contrary to the truth of God)
*Jesu; exact spelling Jesus from the Hebrew.
ST. PAUL TO THE ROMANS Chpt 1
For the wrath of God appeareth from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men which withhold the truth in unrighteousness: seeing, what may be known of God, that same is manifest among them. For God did show it unto them. So that his invisible things: that is to say, his eternal power and godhead, are understood and seen, by the works from the creation of the world. So that they are without excuse, in as much as when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful but waxed full of vanities in their imaginations, and their foolish hearts were blinded. When they counted themselves wise, they became fools and turned the glory of the immortal God, unto the similitude of the image of mortal man, and of birds, and fourfooted beasts, and of serpents. Wherefore God like wise gave them up unto their hearts lusts, unto uncleanness, to defile their own bodies between themselves: which turned his truth unto a lie, and worshipped and served the creatures more then the maker, which is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto shameful lusts. For even their women did change the natural use unto the unnatural. And likewise also the men left the natural use of the woman, and burned in their lusts one on another. And man with man wrought filthiness, and received in themselves the reward of their error, as it was according.
And as it seemed not good unto them to be a known of God, even so God delivered them up unto a lewd mind, that they should do those things which were not comely, being full of all unrighteous doing, of fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, evil conditioned, whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, doers of wrong, proud, boasters, bringers up of evil things, disobedient to father and mother, without understanding, covenant breakers, unloving, truce breakers and merciless. Which men though they knew the righteousness of God, how that they which commit such things, are worthy of death, yet not only do the same, but also have pleasure in them that do them
