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 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 saver.
and that in spirit and truth.
and the man looked and he was in the midst of nothingness ...
even the emptiness and void ...
and the nothing worth ...of world of the worldly ...nevertheless a cloud appeared like a warm mist...
and compassed the man all roundabout ...
and there was given to the man a color ...
and the color was like unto orange ...
and the color was the color of pavement ...

and i looked and the orange was like the color found of ...fire and gold ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE PSALMS Chpt 68
Let God arise, so shall his enemies be scattered, and they that hate him, shall flee before him.
Like as the smoke vanisheth, so shalt thou drive them away: and like as wax melteth at the fire, so shall the ungodly perish at the presence of God.
But the righteous shall be glad and rejoice before God, they shall be merry and joyful. O sing unto God, sing praises to his name: magnify him that rideth above the heavens (whose name is the Lord) and rejoice before him.
He is a father of the fatherless, he is a defender of widows: even God in his holy habitation. He is the God that maketh men to be of one mind in a house, and bringeth the prisoners out of captivity in due season, but letteth the renegades continue in scarceness.
O' God, when thou wentest forth before the people, when thou wentest through the wilderness. Selah:
The earth shook, and the heavens dropped at the presence of God in Sinai, at the presence of God, which is the God of Israel. Thou, O' God sendest a *gracious rain, upon thine inheritance, and refresheth it, when it is dry.
That thy beasts may dwell therin, which thou of thy goodness hast prepared for the poor.
The Lord shall give the word, with great hosts of Evangelists.
Kings with their armies shall flee, and they of the household shall divide the spoil.
If so be that ye lay among the *pales, the doves feathers shall be covered with silver, and her wings the color of gold.
When the Almighty setteth kings upon the earth, it shall be clear even in the darkness.
The hill of Basan is Gods hill, the hill of Basan is a plenteous hill.
Why hope ye so, ye great hills?
It pleaseth God to dwell upon this hill, yee the Lord will abide in it for ever.
The chariots of God are many thousand times a thousand, the Lord is among them in holy Sinai. Thou art gone up on high, thou hast led captivity captive, and received gifts, for men: yee even for thine enemies, that they might dwell with the Lord God.
Praised by the Lord daily even the God which helpeth us, and poured his benefits upon us. Selah.
Thee that is our Savior, even God the Lord by whom we escape death. The God that smiteth the enemies upon the heads and upon the hearty scalps: such as go still in their wickednesses.
The Lord hath said: some will I bring away from Basan, some will I bring again from the deep of the sea.
That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and that thy dogs may lick it up.
It is well seen, O' God, how thou goest, how thou my God and my King goest in the *Sanctuary.
The singers go before, and then the minstrels among the maidens with tumbrels.
O' give thanks unto God the Lord in the *congregation, for the wells of Israel.
There is little *Benjamin, the Princes of Judah, the Princes of Zabulon, and the Princes of Nephtali bear rule among them.
Thy God hath committed strength unto thee, stablish the thing, O' God, that thou hast wrought *in us.
For thy temples sake at Jerusalem shall Kings bring presents unto thee.
Reprove the beasts among the reeds, the heap of bulls with the calves: those that drive for money.
Oh scatter the people that delight in battle.
The Princes shall come out of Egypt, the *Morians land shall stretch out her hands unto God.
Sing unto God, O' ye kingdoms of the earth: O' sing praises unto the Lord. Selah.
Which setteth in the heavens over all from the beginning: Lo, he shall send out his voice, yee and that a mighty voice.
Ascribe ye the power unto God, his glory is in Israel, and his might in the clouds.
God is wonderful in his Sanctuary, he is the God of Israel, he will give strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God

THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 14
Upon the third day I sat under an oak tree, then came there a voice unto me out of the bush, and said: Esdras, Esdras? And I said: here am I Lord, and stood up on my feet. Then spake he unto me: In the bush did I appear unto Moses, and talked with him, when my people served in Egypt, and I sent him, and led my people out of Egypt, and brought him upon mount Sion, where I held him by me a long season, and told him my wondrous works, and showed him the secrets of the times and the end, and commanded him, saying: These words shalt thou declare, and not hide them. And now I say unto thee, that thou lay up in thy heart the dreams that thou hast seen, and the interpretations which I have showed thee: for thou shalt be received of all, thou shalt be turned and remain in my counsel, and with such as be like thee, until the times be ended. For the world hath lost his youth, and the time is divided into twelve parts, and ten parts of it are gone already, and half of the tenth part: yet remaineth there that, which is after the half of the tenth part.
Therefore prepare and order thy house, and reform thy people: comfort such of them as be in trouble: and tell now of the destruction: let go from thee all mortal thoughts: cast away the burthens of man: put off the weak nature: lay up in some places the thoughts that are most heavy unto thee, and hast thee to flight from these times: for such evil and wickedness as thou hast now seen happen, shall they do yet much worse. For the weaker that the world and the times is, the more shall sin and wickedness increase, in them that dwell upon the earth: For the truth is fled far away, and the leasing is hard at hand. For now hasteth the vision to come, that thou hast seen.
Then answered I and said: Behold Lord, I will go as thou hast commanded me, and reform the people which are present. But they that shall be born afterward, who will exhort or rebuke them? Thus the world is set in darkness, and they that dwell therein, are without light: for thy law is kindled, because no man knoweth the things that are done of thee, or that shall be done. If I have found grace before thee, send the holy ghost into me, and I shall write all that hath been done in the world since the beginning, which was written in thy law, that men may find the path, and that they which will live in the latter days, may live.
And he answered me, saying: Go thy way, gather thy people together, and say unto them, that they seek thee not for forty days, but look thou gather the many box trees, and take with thee Sarea, Dabria, Selemia, Echanus and Asiall, these five, which are ready to write swiftly, and come hither, and I shall light a candle of understanding in thine heart which shall not be put out, till the things be performed which thou shalt begin to write. Then shalt thou declare some things openly unto the perfect, and some things thou shalt show secretly to the wise. Tomorrow this hour thou shalt begin to write.
Then went I forth (as he commanded me) and gathered all the people together, and said: Hear these words O' Israel: Our fathers from the beginning were strangers in Egypt, from whence they were delivered, and received the law of life, which they kept not, which thee have also transgressed after them. Then was this land and the land of Sion parted among you by lot to possess. But your fathers and yee yourselves also have done unrighteousness, and have not kept the ways which the Highest commanded you. And for so much as he is a righteous judge, he took from you in time the thing that he had given you. And now are yee here and your brethren among you. Therefore if so be that yee will subdue your own understanding, and reform your heart, ye shall be kept alive, and after death ye shall obtain mercy. For after death shall the judgement come, when we shall live again: and then shall the names of the righteous be manifest, and the names of the ungodly with their works shall be declared. Let no man therefore come now unto me, nor ask any question at me these forty days.
So I took the five men (as he commanded me) and we went into the field, and remained there. The next days a voice called me saying: Esdras, open thy mouth, and behold, he reached me a full cup, which was full a water, but the color of it was like fire. And I took it and drank. And when I had drunk it , my heart had understanding, and wisdom grew in my breast: for my spirit was kept in remembrance, and my mouth was opened and shut no more. The Highest gave understanding to the five men, that they wrote the high things of the night, which they understood not. But in the night they ate bread: as for me, I spake in the day, and held not my tongue by night. In forty days, they wrote two hundred and four books.
And it happened when the forty days were fulfilled, that the Highest spake, saying: The first that thou hast written, speak openly, that the worthy and the unworthy may read it. But keep the seventy last that thou mayest show it only to such as be wise among thy people. For in them is the spring of understanding, the fountain of wisdom, and the stream of knowledge. And I did so
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 22
The feast of sweet bread drew nigh which is called *ester, and the high Priests and Scribes sought how to kill him, but they feared the people. Then entered Satan into Judas, whose sur name was Iscariot (which was of the number of the twelve) and he went his way and communed with the high priests and officers how he might betray him to them. And they were glad: and promised to give him money. And he consented, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them, when the people were away.
Then came the day of sweet bread, when of necessity the esterlamb must be offered. And he sent Peter and John saying: Go and prepare us the esterlamb, that we may eat. They said to him. Where wilt thou, that we prepare? And he said unto them. Behold when ye be entered into the city, there shall a man meet you bearing a pitcher of water, him follow into the same house that he entereth in, and say unto the good man of the house. The master sayeth unto thee: where is the guest chamber, where I shall eat mine esterlamb with my disciples? And he shall show you a great parlour paved. There make ready. And they went and found as he had said unto them: and made ready the esterlamb.
And when the hour was come, he sat down and the twelve Apostles with him. And he said unto them: I have inwardly desired to eat this esterlamb with you before that I suffer. For I say unto you: henceforth I will not eat of it any more, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. And he took the cup and gave thanks, and said. Take this, and divide it among you. For I say unto you: I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God be come.
And he took bread, gave thanks, and gave to them, saying: This is my body which is given for you. This do in the remembrance of me. Likewise also, when they had supped, he took the cup saying: This cup is the new testament in my blood, which shall for you be shed.
Yet behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me, is with me on the table. And the son of man goeth as it is appointed: But woe be to that man by whom he is betrayed. And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it should be, that should do that.
And there was a strife among them, which of them should be taken for the greatest. And he said unto them: the kings of the gentiles reign over them, and they that bear rule over them, are called gracious lords. But ye shall not be so. But he that is greatest among you, shall be as the youngest: and he that is chief, shall be as the minister. For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat: or he that serveth? Is not he that sitteth at meat? And I am among you, as he that ministereth. Ye are they which have bidden with me in my temptations. And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my father hath appointed to me: that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on seats, and judge the twelve tribes of Israel.
And the Lord said: Simon, Simon behold Satan hath desired you, to sift you, as it were wheat: but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not. And when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. And he said unto him. Lord I am ready to go with thee into prison, and to death. And he said: I tell thee Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, till thou have *thrice denied that thou knewest me.
And he said unto them: when I sent you without wallet and scrip and shoes, lacked ye anything? And they said, no. And he said to them: but now he that hath a wallet let him take it up, and likewise his scrip. And he that hath no sword, let him sell his coat and buy one. For I say unto you, that yet that which is written, must be performed in me: Even with the wicked was he numbered. For those things which are written of me, have an end. And they said: Lord, behold here are two swords. And he said unto them: it is enough.
And he came out, and went as he was *wont to mount Olivete. And the disciples followed him. And when he came to the place, he said to them: pray, lest ye fall into temptation.
And he gat himself from them, about a stones cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, saying: Father if thou wilt, withdraw this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but thine be fulfilled. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, comforting him. And he was in agony, and prayed somewhat longer. And his sweat was like drops of blood, trickling down to the ground. And he rose up from prayer and came to his disciples, and found them sleeping for sorrow, and said unto them: Why sleep ye? Rise and pray, lest ye fall into temptation.
While he yet spake: behold, there came a company, and he that was called Judas one of the twelve, went before them, and pressed nigh unto Jesus to kiss him. And Jesus said unto him: Judas, betrayest thou the son of man with a kiss? When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him. Lord: shall we smite with sword. And one of them smote a servant of the highest priest of all, and smote off his right ear. And Jesus answered and said: Suffer ye thus far forth. And he touched his ear, and healed him.
Then Jesus said unto the high priests and rulers of the temple and the elders which were come to him. Be ye come out, as unto a thief with swords and staves? When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched not forth hands against me. But this is even your very hour, and the power of darkness. Then took they him, and led him, and brought him to the high Priests house. And Peter followed afar off.
When they had kindled a fire in the midst of the palace, and were set down together Peter also sat down among them. And one of the wenches, beheld him as he sat by the fire, and set good eye sight on him and said: this same was also with him. Then he denied him saying: woman I know him not. And after a little while, another saw him and said: thou art also of them. And Peter said: man I am not. And about the space of an hour after, another affirmed saying: verily even this fellow was with him, for he is of Galile, and Peter said: man I *wot not what thou sayest. And immediately while he yet spake, the cock crew. And the Lord turned back and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the words of the Lord, how he said unto him, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me *thrice. And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.
And the men that stood about Jesus, mocked him, and smote him, and blindfolded him, and smote his face. And asked him saying: *arede, who it is that smote thee? And many other things despitefully said they against him.
And as soon as it was day the elders of the people and the high Priests and Scribes, came together, and led him into their council saying: art thou very Christ? tell us. And he said unto them: if I shall tell you, ye will not believe. And if also I ask you, ye will not answer me or let me go. Hereafter shall the son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God. Then said they all: Art thou then the son of God? He said to them: ye say that I am. Then said they: what need we any further witness? We ourselves have heard of his own mouth
*ester: exactly as it appears. *wont (as usual, desired ) *thrice (three times)
*wot (know) *arede (guess),
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 21
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven, and the first earth were vanished away, and there was no more sea. And I John saw that holy city new Jerusalem come down from God out of heaven prepared as a bride garnished for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying: behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them. And they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow neither crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the old things are gone. And he that sat upon the seat, said. Behold I make all things new. And he said unto me: write, for these words are faithful and true.
And he said unto me: it is done, I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him that is a thirst of the well of the water of life, free. He that overcometh, shall inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
And there came unto me one of the seven Angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues: and talked with me saying: come hither, I will show thee the bride, the lambs wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and an high mountain, and he showed me the great city, holy Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God, having the brightness of God. And her shining was like unto a stone most precious, even a Jasper clear as Crystal: and had walls great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve Angels: and names written, which are the twelve tribes of Israel: on the East part three gates, and on the North side three gates, and towards the South three gates, and from the west three gates: and the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the lambs twelve apostles.
And he that talked with me, had a golden reed to measure the city with all and the gates thereof and the wall thereof. And the city was built four square and the length was as large as the breadth of it, and he measured the city with the reed twelve thousand furlongs: and the length and the breadth, and the height of it, were equal. And he measured the wall thereof an hundred and forty four cubits: the measure that the angel had was after the measure that man useth. And the building of the wall of it was of Jasper. And the city was pure gold like unto clear glass and the foundations of the wall of the city was garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was Jasper, the second Sapphire, the third a Chalcedony, the fourth an Emerald: the fifth Sardonyx: the sixth Sardeos: the seventh Chrysolite: the eighth Berall: the ninth a Topas: the tenth a Crysoprasos: the eleventh a Jacincte: the twelfth an Amatist.
The twelve gates were twelve pearls, every gate was of one pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, as through shining glass. And there was no temple therein. For the Lord God almighty and the lamb are the temple of it. and the city hath no need of the *son neither of the moon to lighten it. For the brightness of God did light it: and the lamb was the light of it. And the people which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth shall bring their glory unto it. And the gates of it are not shut by day. For there shall be no night there. And there shall enter into it none unclean thing: neither what soever worketh abomination or maketh lies: but they only which are written in the lambs book of life
*son: exactly as it appears; sonne other places see that sun was spelled sunne in the original.
