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 fulfill 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 man ...
and the man was in the world of the worldly.
Yet NOT of it ...
and he dressed according to the world of the worldly ...
AGAIN only as and because ...he was in the world of the worldly ...
Nevertheless ...the day came ...
and the man put off the garments of the world of the worldly.
and put on a long white garment ...that was given him.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 5
Look through Jerusalem, behold and see: Seek through her streets also within, if ye can find one man, that doeth equal and right, or that laboreth to be faithful: and I shall spare him ( sayeth the Lord ) For though they can say: the Lord liveth, yet do they swear to deceive: Where as thou ( O' Lord ) lookest only upon faith and truth.
Thou hast scourged them, but they took no repentance: thou hast corrected them for amendment, but they refused thy correction. They made their faces harder than stone, and would not amend.
Therefore thought I in myself: *peradventure they are so simple and foolish, that they know nothing of the Lords way, and judgments of our God. Therefore will I go unto their heads and rulers, and talk with them: if they know the way of the Lord, and the judgments of our God. But these ( in like manner ) have broken the yoke, and burst the bonds in sunder.
Wherefore a lion out of the wood shall hurt them, and a wolf in the evening shall destroy them. The cat of the mountain shall lie lurking by their cities, to tare in pieces all of them, that come thereout. For their offenses are many, and their departing way is great. Should I then for all this have mercy upon thee? Thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods. And albeit (even if, even though) they were bound to me in marriage, yet they fell to *advoutry, and hunted harlots houses.
In the desire of uncleanly lust they are become like the stoned horse, every man neighed at his neighbors wife: Should I not correct this? saith the Lord.
Should I not be avenged of every people, that is like unto this? Climb up upon their walls and beat them down, but destroy them not utterly. Cut off their branches because they are not the Lords. For unfaithfully hath the house of Israel and Judah forsaken me, saith the Lord. They have denied the Lord, and said: it is not he. Tush, there shall no misfortune come upon us, we shall see neither sword nor hunger. As for the warning of the Prophets, they take it but for wind, yee there is none of these, which will tell them, that such things shall happen unto them.
Wherefore thus saith the Lord God of Hosts: Because ye speak such words, behold: The words that are in thy mouth will I turn to fire, and make the people to be wood, that it may consume them.
Lo, I will bring a people upon you from far, O house of Israel,( saith the Lord ) a mighty people, an old people, a people whos speech thou knowest not, neither understandeth what they say. Their arrows are sudden death, yee they themselves be very giants. This people shall eat up thy fruit and thy meat, yee they shall devour thy sons and thy daughters, thy sheep and thy bullocks.
They shall eat up thy grapes and figs. As for thy strong and well fenced cities, wherein thou didest trust, they shall destroy them with the sword. Nevertheless I will not then have done with you, saith the Lord. But if they say: wherefore doth the Lord our God all this unto us?
Then answer them: because, that like as ye have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land, even so shall ye serve other gods also in a strange land. Preach this unto the house of Jacob, and cry it out in Judah, and say thus: Hear this ( thou foolish and undiscrete people ) ye have eyes, but ye see not: ears have ye, but hear not.
Fear ye not me, saith the Lord? Are ye not ashamed, to look me in the face? which bind the sea with the sand, so that it can not pass its bounds: for thou it rage, yet it can do nothing, and though the waves thereof do swell, yet may they not go over.
But this people hath a false and *obstinate heart, they are departed and gone away from me. They think not in their hearts: O let us fear the Lord our God, that giveth us rain, early and late, when need is: which keepeth ever still the harvest for us yearly.
Nevertheless your misdeeds have turned these from you, and your sins have robbed you hereof. For among my people are found wicked persons, that privately lay snares and wait for men, to take them and destroy them. And like as a net is full of birds, so are their houses full of that which they have gotten with falsehood and deceit. Hereof cometh their great substance and riches, hereof they are fat and wealthy, and are run away from me with shameful blasphemies. They minister not the law, they make no end of the fatherless cause, they judge not the poor according to equity.
Should I not punish these things, saith the Lord? should I not be avenged of all such people, as these be? Horrible and grievous things are done in the land.
The Prophets teach falsely, and the priests follow them, and my people hath pleasure therin. What will come thereof at the last
*peradventure (perhaps, perchance)
*advouterer: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to our living God, our father, mended of heart by Jesus; Yet here such are devoted to the flesh and houses of whoreship. see James 2 for adultery
*obstinate= Stubbornly adhering to an attitude, an opinion, or a course of action;
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 15
And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots for them, what every man should have. And it was about the third hour, and they crucified him. And the title of his cause was written: The king of the Jews. And they crucified with him two thieves: the one on the right hand, and the other on his left. And the scripture was fulfilled which sayeth: he was counted among the wicked.
And they that went by railed on him: wagging their heads and saying: A wretch, that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days: save thyself, and come down from the cross. Likewise also mocked him the high Priests among themselves with the Scribes and said, he saved other men, himself he cannot save. Let Christ the king of Israel now descend from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him, checked him also.
And when the sixth hour was come, darkness arose over all the earth, until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice saying: Eloi, Eloi, lamaasabathani, which is if it be interpreted: my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? And some of them that stood by, when they heard that, said: behold he calleth for *Helias. And one ran and filled a sponge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying: let him alone, let us see whether *Helias will come and take him down.
But Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the Ghost. And the veil of the temple did rent in two pieces, from the top to the bottom. And when the Centurion which stood before him, saw that he so cried and gave up the ghost, he said: truly this man was the son of God. There were also women a good way off beholding him: among whom was Mary Magdalen, and Mary the mother of James the little, and of Joses, and Mary Salome: which also when he was in Galile, followed him and ministered unto him, and many other women which came up with him to Jerusalem.
THE EPISTLE OF ST. JAMES Chpt 5
Go to now ye rich men. Weep, and howl on your wretchedness that shall come upon you. Your riches is corrupt, your garments are motheaten. Your gold and your silver are cankered, and the rust of them shall be a witness unto you, and shall eat your flesh, as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together in your last days: Behold the hire of the laborers which have reaped down your fields (which hire is of you kept back by fraud) crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped, are entered into the ears of the Lord Sabbaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth and in wantonness. Ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and have killed the just, and he hath not resisted you.
Be patient therefore brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold the husbandman: waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience thereupon, until he receive the early and the latter rain. Be ye also patient therefore and settle your hearts, for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. Grudge not one against another brethren, lest ye be *dampned. Behold the judge standeth before the door. Take (my brethren) the Prophets for an example of suffering adversity, and of long patience, which spake in the name of the Lord. Behold we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have known what end the Lord made. For the Lord is very pitiful and merciful.
But above all things my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by earth, neither by any other oath. Let your yee be yee*, and your nay, nay: lest ye fall into hypocrisy. If any of you be evil vexed, let him pray. If any of you be merry, let him sing Psalms. If any be diseased among you, let him call for the elders of the congregation, and let them pray over him, and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up: and if he have committed sins they shall be forgiven him.
Knowledge your faults one to another: and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man availeth much, if it be fervent. *Helias was a man mortal even as we are and he prayed in his prayer that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
Brethren if any of you *erre from the truth and another convert him, let the same know that he which converted the sinner from going astray out of his way, shall save a soul from death, and shall hide the multitude of sins
*dampned (dampened, damned?) * yee =yes and nay =no. period. *Helias (Elias)
*erre (error) then is plain; against the very truth and verity (realness) of God and Christ.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 3
And write unto the messenger of the congregation of Sardis: This sayth he that hath the spirit of God and the seven stars. I know your works: thou hast a name that you livest, and you are dead. Be awake and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die. For I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If you shalt not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and thou shall not know what hour I will come upon thee. You hast a few names in Sardis, which have not defiled their garments: and they shall walk with me in white, for they are worthy. He that overcometh shall be clothed in white array, and I will not put out his name out of the book of life, and I will confess his name before my father, and before his Angels. Let him that hath ears, hear, what the spirit sayth unto the congregations.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 21
When they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto mount Olivet: then sent Jesus two of his disciples, saying to them: Go into the town that lieth over against you, and *anon ye shall find an ass bound, and her colt with her: loose them and bring them unto me. And if any man say ought unto you, say ye that the Lord hath need of them: and straight way he will let them go. All this was done, to fulfil that which was spoken by the prophet, saying: Tell ye the daughter of Sion: behold thy king cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass and a colt, the foal of an ass used to the yoke. The disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them, and brought the ass and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and set him thereon. And many of the people spread their garments in the way. Other cut down branches from the trees, and *strawed them in the way. Moreover the people that went before, and they also that came after, cried saying: Hosanna to the son of David. Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest.
And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved saying: who is this? And the people said: this is Jesus the Prophet of Nazareth a city of Galilee. And Jesus went in to the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and said to them: It is written, my house shall be called the house of prayer. But ye have made it a den of thieves. And the blind and the halt came to him in the temple, and he healed them.
When the chief Priests and Scribes saw the marvels that he did, and the children crying in the temple and saying: Hosanna to the son of David, they disdained, and said unto him: hearest thou what these say? Jesus said unto them yee: have ye never read, of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast ordained praise? And he left them, and went out of the city unto Bethany, and had his abiding there.
THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 3
Are ye not *ware that ye are the temple of God, and how that the spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy. For the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. Let no man deceive him self. If any man seem wise among you, let him be a fool in this world, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written: he compasses the wise in their craftiness. And again, God knoweth the thoughts of the wise that they be vain. Therefore let no man rejoice in men. For all things are yours, whether it be Paul, either Apollos, either Cephas: whether it be the world, or life, either death, whether they be present things or things to come: all are yours: and ye are Christs, and Christ is Gods
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 6
And I saw when the lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard one of the four beasts say, as it were the noise of thunder, come and see. And I saw. And behold there was a white horse, and he that sat on him had a bow, and a crown was given unto him, and he went forth conquering and for to overcome. And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say: come and see. And there went out another horse that was red, and power was given to him that sat thereon, to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another. And there was given unto him a great sword.
And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say: come and see. And I beheld, and lo, a black horse: and he that sat on him, had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say: a measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny: and oil and wine see thou hurt not. And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say: come and see. And I looked. And behold a green horse, and his name that sat on him, was death, and hell followed after him, and power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, that cometh of vermin of the earth.
And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar, the souls of them that were killed for the word of God, and for the testimony which they had, and they cried with a loud voice saying: How long tarriest thou Lord holy and true, to judge and to avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And long white garments were given unto every one of them. And it was said unto them that they should rest for a little season until the number of their fellows, and brethren, and of them that should be killed as they were, were fulfilled.
And I beheld when he opened the sixth seal, and lo there was a great earthquake and the *sun was as black as sack cloth made of hair. And the moon waxed even as blood: and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth even as a fig tree casteth from her, her figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And heaven vanished away, as a scroll when it is rolled together. And all mountains and isles, were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in dens, and in rocks of the hills: and said to the hills and rocks: fall on us, and hide us from the presence of him that sitteth on the seat, and from the wrath of the lamb: for the great day of his wrath is come, and who can endure it.
*sun: this is sun, spelled originally sunne.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 7
Not all they that say unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter in to the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth my fathers will which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not in thy name Prophesied? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name have done many miracles? And then will I knowledge unto them that I never knew them. Depart from me, ye workers of iniquity.
THE PROVERBS Chpt 17
