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 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 show a man ...
and the man had an old car ...that you loved and cared for and clung to and caressed ( car care resessed) ...
evenso as time went by ...as his time went by ...the care began to show signs of rust and moth consuming ...
and soon the car was to the man as though a stained lover ...
a thing of nothing worth to him ...
even as though dead. (for he had spoken to it lovingly before)
even as though a thing that would buried in the sand ...
Nevertheless he bought another car ...and started to go about ...that others might see his car ...(for he was proud of it )
and began to love it like the other one before it...
and a number of his other friends came ...who like himself ...loved cars and other things of the world.
and one of his friends said ...look see ...this part is lose ...and might fall off ...
and the collector went quickly to fix the thing ...
even as though it was a medical emergency ...of something living ...
and another friend of common concern said ...look see how this works ...
and they all gathered together ...with mouth agape ...to see how the device worked of the care that was collected ...in the heart and hearts of them all ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. JOHN Chpt 2
See that ye love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in him. For all that is in the world (as the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of goods) is not of the father, but of the world. And the world vanisheth away and the lust there of: but he that fulfilleth the will of God, abideth ever.
FIRST BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 19... And Lots wife looked behind her, and was turned in to a pillar of salt.
Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and Gomorra, brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven, and overthrew those cities and all the region, and all that dwelled in the cities, and that, that grew upon the earth. And Lots wife looked behind her, and was turned in to a pillar of salt.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 3
Every man can *eschue a person moved to anger, for what he doth wisely? Even so shall the Lord of Hosts take away from Jerusalem and from Juda, all possessions and power, all meat and drink, the captain and the soldier, the judge and the prophet, the wise and the aged man, the worshipful of fifty year old, and the honorable: the Senators, and the men of understanding: the masters of crafts and orators. And I shall give you children to be your princes,( sayeth the Lord ) and babes shall have the rule of you. One shall ever be doing violence and wrong to another. The boy will presume against the elder, and the vile person against the honorable. Ye when one shall take a friend of his own kindred by the bosom, and say: Thou hast clothing, thou shalt be our head, for thou mayest keep us from this fall and peril.
Then shall he swear and say: I can not help you. Moreover, there is neither meat nor clothing in my house, make me no ruler of the people. For Jerusalem and Juda must decay, because both their words and counsel are against the Lord, they provoke the presence of his Majesty unto anger. The changing of their countenance betrayeth them, yee they declare their own sins themselves, as the Sodomites, and hide them not. Woe be unto their souls, for they shall be heavily rewarded. Then shall they say: O happy are the godly, for they may enjoy the fruits of their studies. But woe be unto the ungodly and unrighteous for they shall be rewarded after their works. O my people, *ribaudes oppress thee, and women have rule of thee. O my people, thy leaders deceive thee, and tread out the way of thy footsteps. The Lord is here to commune of the matter, and standeth to give judgement with the people. The Lord shall come forth to reason with the Senators and princes of his people, and shall say thus unto them: It is ye that have burnt up my vineyard, the robbery of the poor is in your house. Wherefore do ye oppress my people, and marred the faces of the innocents? thus shall the Lord God of Hosts revile them.
Moreover thus sayeth the Lord: Seeing the daughters of Sion are become so proud, and come in with stretched out necks, and with vain wanton eyes: seeing they come in tripping so nicely with their feet: Therefore shall the Lord shave the heads of the daughters of Sion, and make their beauty bare in the day. In that day shall the Lord take away the gorgeousness of their apparel, and spangles, chains, *partlets, and collars, bracelets and hooves, that goodly flowered wide and boarded raiment, brushes and head bands, rings and garlands, holy day clothes and veils, kerchiefs and pins, glasses and smocks, bonnets and *taches
And instead of good smell there shall be stink among them. And for their girdles there shall be loose bands. And for well set hair there shall be baldness. Instead of a stomacher, a sackcloth, and for their beauty witherdness and *son burning. Their husbands and their mighty men shall perish with the sword in battle
*eschue (avoid, escape) *ribaudes ( extortioners :MN). *partlets = ruffled covering for the neck. *taches = buckles, clasps, fasteners. *son burning exactly as recorded.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 4
Jesus then full of the holy ghost returned from Jordan, and was carried of the spirit into wilderness, and was forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days ate he nothing. And when they were ended, he after ward hungered. And the devil said unto him: if thou be the son of God command this stone that it be bread. And Jesus answered him saying: It is written, man shall not live by bread only, but by every word of God.
And the devil took him up into an high mountain, and showed him all the kingdom of the world, even in the twinkling of an eye. And the devil said unto him: all this power will I give thee every *whit and the glory of them: for that is delivered to me, and to whosoever I will, I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, they shall be all thine. Jesus answered him and said: hence from me Satan. For it is written: Thou shalt honour the Lord thy God, and him only serve.
And he carried him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him: If thou be the son of God, cast thyself down from hence. For it is written, he shall give his Angels charge over thee to keep thee, and with their hands they shall stay thee up that thou dash not thy foot against a stone. Jesus answered and said to him, it is said: thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. As soon as the devil had ended all his temptations, he departed from him, for a season.
and to whosoever I will, I give it.
If thou therefore wilt worship me, they shall be all thine.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 12
And when the dragon saw, that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, times, and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And the dragon cast out of his mouth water after the woman as it had been a river, because she should have been caught of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed, up the river, which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman: and went and made war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. And I stood on the sea *stonde
And the dragon cast out of his mouth water after the woman as it had been a river, because she should have been caught of the flood.
this "flood" of evil "waters" that comes from satans mouth is all the deception guile and lies of world of the worldly ...that is to say plainly anything outside the will and truth of God...
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 18
Then Pilate entered into the judgement hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him: art thou the king of the Jewes? Jesus answered: sayest thou that of thyself, or did other tell it thee of me? Pilate answered: Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and high priests have delivered thee unto me. What hast thou done? Jesus answered: my kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world then would my ministers surely fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jewes, but now is my kingdom not from hence. Pilate said unto him: Art thou a king then? Jesus answered: Thou sayest that I am a king. For this cause was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. And all that are of the truth hear my voice. Pilate said unto him: what thing is truth? And when he had said that, he went out again unto the Jewes, and said unto them: I find in him no cause at all. Ye have a custom, that I should deliver you one loose at *ester. Will ye that I loose unto you the king of the Jewes? Then cried they all again saying: Not him but Barabas: that Barabas was a robber
THE FIRST TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 6
Let as many servants as are under the yoke, count their masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not evil spoken of. See that they which have believing masters, despise them not because they are brethren: but so much the rather do service, for as much as they are believing and beloved and partakers of the benefits.
These things teach and exhort. If any man teach otherwise, and is not content with the wholesome words of our Lord Jesu Christ, and with the doctrine of godliness, he is puffed up and knoweth nothing: but wasteth his brains about questions and strife of words, whereof spring envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings and vain disputations of men with corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, which think that lucre is godliness. From such separate thyself. Godliness is great riches, if a man be content with that he hath. For we brought nothing into the world, and it is a plain case that we can carry nothing out.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 59
Behold, the Lords hand is not so shortened that it cannot help, neither is his ear so stopped that it may not hear. But your misdeeds have separated you from your God, and your sins hide his face from you, that he heareth you not. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with unrighteousness: Your lips speak leasings, and your tongue setteth out wickedness. No man regardeth righteousness, and no man judgeth truly. Every man hopeth in vain things, and imagineth deceit, conceiveth weariness, and bringeth forth evil. *They breed cockatrice eggs, and weave the spiders web.
*Whoso eateth of their eggs dieth.
*But if one treadeth upon them. there cometh up a serpent.
*Their web maketh no cloth and they may not cover themselves with their labors.
*Their deeds are the deeds of wickedness, and the work of robbery is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make hast to shed innocent blood. Their counsels are wicked counsels, harm and destruction are in their ways. But the way of peace they know not. In their goings is there no equity, their ways are so *crocked that whosoever goeth therin, knoweth nothing of peace.
And this is the cause that equity is so far from us, and the righteousness cometh not nye us. We look for light, lo, it is darkness: for the morning shine, see, we walk in the dark. We grope like the blind upon the wall, we grope even as one that hath none eyes. We stumble at the noon day, as though it were toward night: in the falling places, like men that are half dead. We roar all like Bears, and mourn still like doves. We look for equity, but there is none: for health, but it is far from us. For our offenses are many before thee, and our sins testify against us. Yee we must confess that we offend, and knowledge that we do amiss: Namely transgress and disassemble against the Lord, and fall away from our God: using presumptuous and traitorous imaginations, and casting false matters in our hearts. And therefore is equity gone aside, and righteousness standeth far off: truth is fallen down in the street, and the thing that is plain and open, may not be showed. Yee the truth is laid in prison, and he that refraineth him self from evil, must be spoiled.
When the Lord saw this, it displeased him sore, that there was no where any equity. He saw also, that there was no man, which had pity thereof, or was grieved at it. And he held him by his own power, and cleaved to his own righteousness. He put righteousness upon him for a breast plate, and a fiery helmet of health upon his head. He put on wrath in stead of clothing, and took jealousy about him for a cloak: ( like as when a man goeth forth wrothfully to recompense his enemies, and to be avenged of his adversaries. ) Namely, that he might recompense and reward the Islands where through the name of the Lord might be feared, from the rising Sun: and his majesty, unto the going down of the same.
For he shall come as a violent water stream, which the wind of the Lord hath moved. But unto Sion there shall come a redeemer, and unto them in Jacob that turn from wickedness, sayeth the Lord. I will make this covenant with them, ( saith the Lord): My spirit that is come upon thee, and the words which I have put in thy mouth, shall never go out of thy mouth, nor out the mouth of thy childrens children, from this time forth for evermore
from the marginal notes...(MN) or martyrs notes
*1 To breed cockatrice eggs, is, to go about that which is inischeous (unsatiating) and wicked: A to weave that spiders web, web, is to about vain and trifling things, which are of no value: although they seem ever so excellent unto the doers.
*2 As to ye that eateth of a cockatrice egg dieth, So they that delight in cruel works, or that consent unto them, shall perish.
*3 And if a man unawares, tread on their eggs : and so press out the cockatrice and be touched, he shall be killed of her: evenso shall the thoughts of that evil bring them to death.
*4 As no man maketh clothes of the spiders web, so shall the wicked works enrich no man nor profit him on the day of judgement, when we must go unto that rest in that wedding garment.
*5 By the deeds of wickedness understand guileful and crafty deeds of robbery, violent and tyrannous deeds. The text sayeth that their deeds are the deeds of robbery because they help no man with their hands. But rather rob and beguile the poor: so are they without charity, so feel they not what charity requireth of them.
*crocked (crooked or a crock of ; like unto a bedroom chamber pot )
and of a nightmare of the same in HELL ...
More vanities were shown as to the loved objects ...those "things of the world" that are wanted after to no returning. Again all manner of things cherished for there were men and women that loved their cars, boats, airplanes, collectibles ...and whatsoever they could not turn from the wantonness thereof...these did polish, clean, and labor at these objects of their wicked wantonness without stopping. Yet even as they labored so did the object tarnish, rust, fall apart and were consumed, as it were back into the ground from which they came. Again no end to the lusting after and the pride of these goods ...yet never in anyway did anything last.
"fleeing yet wanting to hold on to things of the world..."
"do not betray each other over the things of the world..."
"do not complain against God over things of the world..."
"things of the world...the unruly wife and children like young dogs...
"things of the world and the dead dog..."
"who will buy the things of the world...
"the man the wife the children and things of the world..."
"things of the world..."
"the things of men..."
"things of the world ...things of God... "
"work and work and things of the world ...works and goods ...prayer and fasting "
Love not ....the things of the world
