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 from above ...
and there was a flag in the midst of fire.
and i was taken closer red and white stripes of the nations flag blew within the fire ...
even as though all that could be seen...was in the midst of the consuming fire.
and scripture came back to remembrance.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 33
Therefore woe be unto thee ( O robber ) shalt thou not be robbed also? and unto thee that layest wait, as who say there should no wait be laid for thee: Woe unto thee which doest hurt, even so shall thou be hurt also. And as thou layest wait, so shall wait be laid for thee also.
Lord be merciful unto us, we wait for thee. *Thine arm is at a point to visit us, but be thou our health in time of trouble. Grant that the people may flee at the anger of thy voice, and that at thine upstanding of the Gentiles may be scattered abroad, and that their people may be gathered, as the grasshoppers are commonly gathered together in a pit. Stand up Lord, thou that dwelleth on high: Let Sion be filled with equity and righteousness. Let truth and faithfulness be in her time: power, health, wisdom, knowledge and the fear of God are her treasure. Behold, their angels cry without, the messengers of peace weep bitterly. The streets are waste, there walketh no man therin, the appointment is broken, the cities are dispised, they are not regarded, the desolate earth is in heaviness. Libanus taketh it but for a sport, that it is hewn down: Saron is like a wilderness: and Basan and Carmel are turned upside down. *And therefore saith the Lord. I will up, now will I get up, now will I arise. Ye shall conceive stubble, and bare straw, and your spirit shall be the fire, that it may consume you: and the people shall be burnt like lime, and as thorns burn that are hewn off, and cast in the fire.
Now hearken to, ye that are far off of how I do with them, and consider my glory, ye that be at hand. The sinners at Sion are afraid and sudden fearfulness is come upon the hypocrites. What is he among us ( say they ) that will dwell by that consuming fire? Which of us may abide that everlasting heat? He that leadeth a godly life ( say I ) and speaketh the truth: He that abhoreth to do violence and deceit: he that keepeth his hand that toucheth no reward: which stoppeth his ears, that he hear no counsel against the innocent: which holdeth down his eyes, that he see none evil. He it is, that shall dwell on high whose saverguard shall be in the true rock, to him shall be given the right true meat and drink. His eyes shall see the king in his glory: and in the wide world, and his heart shall delight in the fear of God. What shall then become of the scribe? of the Senator? what of him that teacheth children? There shalt thou not see a people of a strange tongue to have so diffused a language, that it may not be understood: neither so strange a speach but it shall be perceived.
There shall Sion be seen, the head city of our solemn feasts. There shall thine eyes see Jerusalem that glorious habitation: the tabernacle that never shall remove, whose nails shall never be taken out world without end, whose *coardes *everychone shall never corrupt: for the glorious Majesty of the Lord shall there be present among us. In that place, where fair broad rivers and streams are shall neither Galley row, ner great ship sail. For the Lord shall be our captain, the Lord shall be our law giver. The Lord shall be our king, and he himself shall be our Saviour. There are the *coards so layed abroad, that they can not be better: The mast set up of such a fashion, that no banner nor sail hangeth theron: but there is dealed great spoil, yee lame men run after the prey, There lieth no man that sayeth: I am sick, but all evil is taken away from the people, that dwell there.
Of this last sentence 2nd PP compare to kjv and or other bibles of man. RN
kjv ... Now will I rise, saith the LORD; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself.
 Ye shall conceive chaff, ye shall bring forth stubble: your breath, as fire, shall devour you.
 And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.
*coardes (courses) *everychone ( every each one ?) .*coards (courses) possible reference to a ship; in it is the lowest sail. RN
*Thine arm is at a point to visit us, but thou our health in time of trouble. That is his power to be shown plainly.
Joel Chpt 2
Blow out the trumpet in Sion, and cry upon my holy hill, that all such as dwell in the land, may tremble at it: for the day of the Lord cometh, and is hard at hand: a dark day, a cloudy day, yee and a stormy day, like as the morning spreadeth out upon the hills: Namely, a great and mighty people: such as have not been since the beginning, neither shall be after them for evermore. Before him shall be a consuming fire, and behind him a burning flame. The land shall be as a garden of pleasure before him, but behind him shall be a very waste wilderness, and there is no man, that shall escape him. They are to look upon like *barded horses, and run like horse men. They skipped up upon the hills, as it were the sound of chariots: as the flame of fire that consumeth the straw, and as a mighty people ready to the battle.
The folk shall be afraid of him, all faces shall be as black as the pot. These shall run like giants, and leap over the walls like men of war. Every man in his going will keep his array, and not go out of his Path. There shall not one drive another, but each shall keep his own way. They shall break in at the windows, and not be hurt: They shall come in to the city, and run upon the walls: They shall climb up upon the houses, and slip in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before him, yee the heavens shall be moved: The Sun and Moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shine. The Lord shall show his voice before his host, for his host is great, strong and mighty to fulfill his commandment. This is that great and marvelous fearful day of the Lord: And who is able to abide it.
Now therefore sayeth the Lord: Turn you unto me with all your hearts, with fasting, weeping and mourning, rent your hearts, and not your clothes. Turn you unto the Lord your God, for he is gracious and merciful, long suffering and of great compassion: and ready to pardon wickedness. Then ( no doubt ) he also shall turn, and forgive: and after his chastening, he shall let your increase remain, for meat and drink offerings unto the Lord your God: Blow out with the trumpet in Sion, proclaim a fasting, call the congregation, and gather the people together: warn the congregation, gather the elders, bring the children and sucklings together. Let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. Let the priests serve the Lord between the porch and the alter, weeping and saying: be favorable O' Lord, be favorable unto thy people: let not thy heritage be brought to such confusion, lest the Heathen be Lords thereof. Wherefore should they say among the Heathen: where is now their God?
Then shall the Lord be jealous over his land, and spare his people: yee the Lord shall answer, and say unto his people: Behold, I will send you corn, wine, and oil, so that ye shall have plenty of them: And I will no more give you over to be a reproof among the Heathen. Again as for him of the North, I shall drive him far from you: and shoot him out in to a dry and waste land, his face toward the east sea, and his hinder parts toward the upmost sea. The stink of him shall go up, and his filthy corruption shall fall upon himself, because he hath dealt so proudly. Fear not ( O land ) but be glad and rejoice, for the Lord will do great things. Be not ye afraid neither ( O ye beasts of the field ) for the pastures shall be green and the trees shall bear their fruit: the fig trees and vineyards shall give their increase.
Be glad then ( O ye children of Sion ) and rejoice in the Lord your God, for he hath given you a teacher of righteousness: and he it is that shall send you down showers of rain, early and late in the first month: so that the gardeners shall be full of corn, and the priests plenteous in wine and oil. And as for the years that the grasshopper, locust, blasting, and caterpillar ( my great host, which I sent among you) have eaten up, I shall restore them to you again: so that ye shall have enough to eat, and be satisfied: and praise the name of the Lord your God, that so marvelously hath dealt with you.
And my people shall never be confounded anymore. Ye shall well know, that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am your God: yee and that there is none other, and my people shall no more be brought to confusion.
After this, I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and daughters shall prophesy: your old men shall dream dreams , and your young men shall see visions in those days I will pour out my spirit upon servants and maidens. I will show wonders in the heavens above, and tokens in the earth beneath: blood and fire, and the vapor of smoke. The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon into blood: before the great and notable day of the Lord come. And the time shall come: that whosoever calleth upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. For upon the mount Sion and at Jerusalem, there shall be a salvation, like as the Lord hath promised: yee and among the other remnant, whom the Lord shall call
*barded =armored and ornamented.
TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 12
Wherefore let us also (seeing that we are compassed with so great a multitude of witnesses) lay away all that presseth down, and the sin that hangeth on, and let us run with patience unto the battle that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, which for the joy that was set before him, abode the cross, and despised the shame, and is set down on the right hand of the throne of God. Consider therefore how that he endured such speaking against him of sinners, lest ye should be wearied and faint in your minds. For ye have not yet resisted unto blood shedding, striving against sin. And ye have forgotten the consolation, which speaketh unto you, as unto children: My son despise not the chastening of the Lord, neither faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth, him he chasteneth: yee, and he scourgeth every son that he receiveth.
If ye endure chastening, God offereth himself unto you as unto sons. What son is that whom the father chasteneth not? If ye be not under correction (where of all are partakers) then are ye bastards and not sons. Moreover seeing we had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: should we not much rather be in subjection unto the father of spiritual gifts that we might live? And they verily for a few days, nurtured us after their own pleasure: but he learneth us unto that which is profitable, that we might receive of his holiness. No manner chastising for the present time seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward, it bringeth the quiet fruit of righteousness, unto them which are therin exercised.
Stretch forth therefore again the hands which were let down, and the weak knees, and see that ye have straight steps unto your feet, lest any halting turn out of the way: yee let it rather be healed. Embrace peace with all men and holiness: without the which, no man shall see the Lord. And look to, that no man be destitute of the grace of God, and that no root of bitterness spring up and trouble, and thereby many be defiled: and that there be no fornicator, or unclean person, as Esau, which for one breakfast sold his birthright. Ye know how that afterward when he would have inherited the blessing, he was put by, and he found no means to come thereby again: no though he desired it with tears.
For ye are not come unto the mount that can be touched, and unto burning fire nor yet to mist and darkness and tempest of weather, neither unto the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words: which voice they that heard it, wished away: that the communication should not be spoken to them. For they were not able to abide that which was spoken. If a beast had touched the mountain, it must have been stoned, or thrust through with a dart: even so terrible was the sight which appeared. Moses said, I fear and quake. But ye are come unto the mount Sion, and to the city of the living God, the celestial Jerusalem: and to an innumerable sight of angels, and unto the congregation of the first born sons, which are written in heaven, and to God the judge of all, and to the spirits of just and perfect men and to Jesus the mediator of the new testament, and to the sprinkling of blood that speaketh better then the blood of Abel.
See that ye despise not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not which refused him that spake on earth: much more shall we not escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: whose voice then shook the earth, and now declareth saying: yet once more will I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. No doubt the same that he sayeth, yet once more, signifieth the removing away of those things which are shaken, as of things which have ended their course: that the things which are not shaken, may remain. Wherefore if we receive a kingdom which is not moved we have grace, whereby we may serve God and please him with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 1
The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, for to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass. And he sent and showed by his angel unto his servant John, which bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Happy is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of the prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein. For the time is at hand.
John to the seven congregations in Asia. Grace be with you and peace, from him which is and which was, and which is to come, and from the seven spirits which are present before his throne, and from Jesus Christ which is a faithful witness, and first begotten of the dead: and Lord over the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from sins in his own blood, and made us kings and Priests unto God his father be glory and dominion for ever more. Amen. Behold he cometh with clouds, and all eyes shall see him: and they also which pierced him. And all kindreds of the earth shall wail. Even so: Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord almighty, which is and which was and which is to come.
I John your brother and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience which is in *Jesu Christ, was in the isle of Pathmos for the word of God, and for the witnessing of Jesu Christ. I was in the spirit on a *sonday, and heard behind me a great voice, as it had been of a trumpet saying: I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last. That thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the congregations which are in Asia, unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thiatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicia.
And I turned back to see the voice that spake to me. And when I was turned: I saw seven golden candlesticks. And in the midst of the candlesticks, one like unto the son of man, clothed with a linen garment down to the ground, and girt about the *paps with a golden girdle. His head, and his hairs were white, as white wool, and as snow: and his eyes were as a flame of fire: and his feet like unto brass as though they burnt in a furnace: and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars. And out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword. And his face shone even as the *son in his strength.
And when I saw him, I fell at his feet, even as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me: fear not. I am the first and the last, and am alive, and was dead. And behold I am alive for evermore, and have the keys of hell and of death. Write therefore the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be fulfilled hereafter: and the mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the messengers of the seven congregations: And the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven congregations

THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 19
And after that, I heard the voice of much people in heaven saying: Alleluya. Salvation and glory and honour and power be ascribed to the Lord our God, for true and righteous are his judgements, for he hath judged the great whore which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants of her hand. And again they said: Alleluya. And smoke rose up for evermore. And the twenty four elders, and the four beasts fell down, and worshipped God that sat on the seat saying: Amen, Alleluya. And a voice came out of the seat, saying: praise our Lord God all ye that are his servants, and ye that fear him both small and great.
And I heard the voice of much people, even as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of strong thunderings, saying: Alleluya, for God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice and give honour to him: for the marriage of the lamb is come, and his wife made herself ready. And to her was granted, that she should be arrayed with pure and goodly raynes. For the raynes is the righteousness of saints. And he said unto me, happy are they which are called unto the Lambs supper. And he said unto me: these are the true sayings of God. And I fell at his feet, to worship him. And he said unto me, see thou do it not for I am thy fellow servant, and one of thy brethren, and of them that have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. And I saw heaven open, and behold a white horse: and he that sat upon him was faithful and true, and in righteousness did judge and make battle. His eyes were as a flame of fire: and on his head were many crowns: and he had a name written, that no man knew but him self. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, and his name is called the word of God. And the warriors which were in heaven, followed him upon white horses, clothed with white and pure raynes: and out of his mouth went out a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the heathen. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron, and he trod the *winefat of fierceness and wrath of almighty God. And hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written: king of kings, and Lord of Lords.
And I saw an Angel *stand in the sun, and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly by the midst of heaven, come and gather your selves to gether unto the supper of the great God that ye may eat the flesh of kings, and of high captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all free men and bond men, and of small and great. And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth, and their warriors gathered to gether to make battle against him that sat on the horse and against his soldiers.
And the beast was taken and with him that false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that received the beasts mark, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast into a pond of fire burning with brimstone: and the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth, and all the fowls were full filled with their flesh

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.
