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 within ...within a mans house ...
and the mans house was in need ...in need of repairs ...
and that his house be strengthened ...
and that against the storm and winds and flood ...
even against of the wicked ways of the world of the worldly ...
and a carpenter appeared ...
and helped the man repair and strengthen his house ...from within ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE FIRST TO THE THESSALONIANS Chpt 2
e remember brethren our labour, and travail. For we laboured day and night because we would not be grievous unto any of you, and preached unto you the Gospell of God. Ye are witnesses, and so is God, how holyly and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe: as ye know how that we exhorted and comforted and besought every one of you, as a father his children, that ye would walk worthy of God, which hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.
For this cause thank we God without ceasing, because that when ye received of us the word wherewith God was preached, ye received it not as the word of man: but even as it was in deed, the word of God, which worketh in you that believe. For ye brethren became followers of the congregations of God which in Jewry are in Christ *Jesu: For ye have suffered like things of your kinsmen, as we our selves have suffered of the Jewes. Which as they killed the Lord Jesus and their own Prophets, even so have they persecuted us: and God they please not, and are contrary to all men and forbid us to preach unto the Gentiles, that they might be saved, to fulfil their sins all way. For the wrath of God is come on them, even to the utmost.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 14
Thomas said unto him: Lord we know not whither thou goest. Also how is it possible for us to know the way? Jesus said unto him: I am the way, the truth and the life. And no man cometh unto the father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye had known my father also. And now ye know him, and have seen him.
Philip said unto him: Lord show us the father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus said unto him, have I been so long time with you: and yet hast thou not known me? Philip, he that hath seen me, hath seen the father. And how sayest thou then: show us the father? Believest thou not that *I am in the father, and the father in me? The words that I speak unto you, I speak not of myself: but the father that dwelleth in me, is he that doeth the works. Believe me, **that I am in the father and the father in me. At the least believe me for the very works sake.
Verily, verily I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do, the same shall he do, and greater works then these shall he do, because I go unto my father. And whatsoever ye ask in my name, that will I do, that the father might be glorified by the son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
If ye love me keep my commandments, and I will pray the father, and he shall give you another comforter, that he may bide with you ever: which is the spirit of truth whom the world cannot receive, because the world seeth him not, neither knoweth him. But ye know him. For he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: but will come to you.
Yet a little while and the world seeth me no more: but ye shall see me. For I live and ye shall live. That day shall ye know that I am in my father, and you in me, and I in you.
He that hath my commandments and keepeth them, the same is he that loveth me. And he that loveth me shall be loved of my father: and I will love him, and will show mine own self unto him. Judas said unto him (not Judas Iscarioth) Lord what is the cause that thou wilt show thyself unto us, and not unto the world? Jesus answered and said unto him: if a man love me and will keep my sayings, my father also will love him, and we will come unto him, and will dwell with him. He that loveth me not, keepeth not my sayings. And the words which ye hear, are not mine, but the fathers which sent me.
This have I spoken unto you being yet present with you. But that comforter which is the holy ghost (whom my father will send in my name) he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance whatsoever I have told you.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you. Not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your hearts be grieved, neither fear ye. Ye have heard how I said unto you: I go and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would verily rejoice, because I said, I go unto the father. For the father is greater then I. And now have I showed you, before it come, that when it is come to pass, ye might believe. Here after will I not talk many words unto you. For the ruler of this world cometh, and hath nought in me. But that the world may know that I love the father: therefore as the father gave me commandment, even so do I.

THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 13
And it came to pass when Jesus had finished these similitudes, that he departed thence, and came in to his own country, and taught them in their synagogues, in so much that they were astonied and said: whence cometh all this wisdom and power unto him? Is not this the carpenters son? Is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren be called James and Joses and Simon and Judas? And are not his sisters all here with us? Whence hath he all these things. And they were offended by him. Then Jesus said to them, a Prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and among his own kin. And he did not many miracles there, for their unbeliefs sake
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 13
Vain are all men, which have not the knowledge of God: as were they that out of the good things which are seen, knew not him, that of himself is everlasting. Neither took they so much regard of the works that are made, as to know, who was the craftsman of them: but some took the fire, some the wind or air, some the course of the stars, some the water, some took Sun and Moon, or the lights of heaven which rule the earth, for gods. But though they had such pleasure in their beauty, that they thought them to have been gods: yet should they have known, how much more fairer he is that made them. For the maker of beauty hath ordained all these things. Or if they marveled at the power and works of them, they should have percieved thereby, that he which made these things are mightier than they.
For by the greatness and beauty of the creature, the maker thereof may plainly be known. Not withstanding they are the less to be blamed, that sought God, and would have found him, and yet missed. And why? for so much as they went about his works and sought after them, it is a token, that they regarded and held much of his works that are seen. howbeit they are not wholly to be excused. For if their knowledge and understanding was so great, that they could discern the world and its creatures, why did they not rather find out the Lord thereof?
But unhappy are they, and among the dead is their hope, that call them Gods, which are but the works of mens hands: gold, silver, and the thing that is found out by conning, the similitude of beasts, or any vain stone that hath been made by hand of old. Or as when a carpenter cutteth down a tree out of the wood, and pareth the bark of it conningly: and so with the one part maketh a vessel to be used, and *dighteth meat with the residue. As for the other part that is left, which is profitable for nothing ( for it is a crooked piece of wood and full of knobs, he carveth it diligently through his vanity, and according to the knowledge of his conning ) he giveth it some proportion, fashioneth it after the similitude of a man, or maketh it like some beast, streak it over with red, and painteth it, and look what foul spot is in it he casteth some color upon it.
Then maketh he a convenient tabernacle for it, setteth it in the wall, and maketh it fast with iron, providing so for it, least it happen to fall: for it is well known, that it can not help itself: And why? it is but an image, and must of necessity be helped.
Then goeth he and offereth of his goods unto it, for his children and his wife: he seeketh help at it, he asketh counsel at it: he is not ashamed to speak unto it that hath no soul: for health, he maketh his petition unto him that is sick: for life, he prayeth unto him that is dead: he calleth upon him for help, that is not able to help himself: and to send him a good journey, he prayeth him that may not go. And in all the things that he taketh in hand ( whether it be to obtain anything or to work ) he prayeth unto him that can do no manner of good
