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 a family ...
and no matter what the condition of world of the world was in ...thay were together ...
and the worked together ...talked together ...laughed and wept and sang together ...
and all that they did they did in spirit and truth for the love of God their father and Jesus their brother and Lord.
and they were knit together of the same.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
JUDGES Chpt 20
Then all the people arose, as it had been one man saying: there shall not a man of us go to his tent, neither turn into his house. And now this is it that we shall do to Gabaah and cast lots against it. And we will take ten men of the hundred throughout all the tribes of Israel, and an hundred of the thousand, and a thousand out of the ten thousand, to fetch victuals for the people to make that they may go against Gabaah Benjamin, according to all the folly, that they have wrought in Israel. And so all the men of Israel gathered together, unto Gabaah, knit together as it had been but one man. And the tribes of Israel sent men through all the tribe of Benjamin saying: what wickedness is this that is happened among you. Now therefore deliver us the men, those wicked wretches of Gabaah that we may slay them, and put away evil from Israel.
FIRST BOOK OF SAMUEL Chpt 18
And when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, the soul of Jonathas was knit with the soul of David. Insomuch that he loved him as his own soul. And Saul took him that day and would let him go no more home to his fathers house. And Jonathas and David bound themselves the one to the other, for Jonathas loved him as his own soul. And Jonathas put off his own coat that was upon him, and gave it David, and thereto his mantle, his sword, his bow and his girdle. And David went out to all that Saul sent him, and behaved himself wisely. And when Saul had set him over his men of war, he pleased all the people, and Sauls servants thereto.
THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 10
On the morrow as they went on their journey and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the top of the house to pray, about the sixth hour. Then waxed he an hungered, and would have eaten. But while they made ready. He fell into a trance, and saw heaven opened and a certain vessel come down unto him, as it had been a great sheet, knit at the four corners, and was let down to the earth, where in were all manner of four footed beasts of the earth, and vermin and worms, and fouls of the air. And there came a voice to him: rise Peter kill and eat. But Peter said: God forbid Lord, for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. And the voice spake unto him again the second time: what God hath cleansed, that make thou not common. This was done *thrice, and the vessel was received up again into heaven.
While Peter mused in him self what this vision which he had seen meant: behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius, had made inquirance for Simons house, and stood before the door. And called out one and asked whether Simon which was also called Peter were lodged there. While Peter thought on this vision, the spirit said unto him: Behold, men seek thee: arise therefore, get thee down, and go with them, and doubt not: For I have sent them. Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius, and said. Behold, I am he whom ye seek, what is the cause wherefore ye are come? And they said unto him: Cornelius the captain, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the people of the Jews, was warned by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee. Then called he them in, and lodged them.
And on the morrow Peter went away with them, and certain brethren from Joppa accompanied him. And the third day entered they into Cesaria. And Cornelius waited for them, and had called together his kinsmen, and special friends. And as it chanced Peter to come in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him. But Peter took him up saying: stand up: for even I my self am a man. And as he talked with him he came in, and found many that were come together. And he said unto them: Ye do know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew, to company or come unto an alien: But God hath showed me that I should not call any man common or unclean: therefore came I unto you without saying nay, as soon as I was sent for. I ask therefore, for what intent have ye sent for me?
And Cornelius said: This day now four days I fasted and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house: and behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing, and said: Cornelius, thy prayer is heard and thine alms deeds are had in remembrance in the sight of God. Send therefore to Joppa, and call for Simon which is also called Peter. He is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side, the which as soon as he is come, shall speak unto thee. Then sent I for thee immediately: and thou hast well done for to come. Now are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded unto thee of God.
Then Peter opened his mouth and said: Of a truth I perceive, that God is not partial, but in all people he that fear him and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 1
I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ, that in all things ye are made rich by him, in all learning and in all knowledge, even as the testimony of Jesus Christ was confirmed in you, so that ye are behind in no gift, and wait for the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ which shall strength you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. For God is faithful by whom ye are called unto the fellowship of his son Jesus Christ our Lord. I beseech you brethren in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak one thing and that there be no dissension among you: but be ye knit to gether in one mind and in one meaning: It is showed unto me (my brethren) of you, by them that are of the house of Cloe, that there is strife among you. And this is it that I mean: how that commonly among you, one sayeth: I hold of Paul: another I hold of Apollo: the third I hold of Cephas: the fourth that I hold of Christ. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? either were ye baptised in the name of Paul? I thank God that I christened none of you, but Crispus and Gaius, lest any should say that I had baptised in mine own name. I baptised also the house of Stephana. Furthermore know I not whether I baptised any man or no.
For Christ sent me not to baptise, but to preach the Gospell, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should have been made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will cast away the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the searcher of this world? Hath not God made the wisdom of this world foolishness?
For when the world through wisdom knew not God, in the wisdom of God: it pleased God through foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom. But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews an occasion, of falling, and unto the Greeks foolishness: but unto them which are called both of Jews and Greeks, we preach Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men: and the weakness of God is stronger than men. Brethren look on your calling how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many of high degree are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world, to confound the wise. And God hath chosen the weak things of the world, to confound things which are mighty. And vile things of the world, and things which are despised hath God chosen, yee and things of no reputation, for to bring to nought things of reputation, that no flesh should rejoice in his presence. And unto him pertain ye, in Christ Jesu, which of God is made unto us wisdom, and also righteousness, and sanctifying and redemption. That according as it is written: he which rejoiceth, should rejoice in the Lord
*Jesu; Hebrew for Jesus
TO THE EPHESIANS Chpt 4
I therefore which am in bonds for the Lords sake, exhort you, that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, in all humbleness of mind, and meekness, and long suffering, forbearing one another through love, and that ye be diligent to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace, being one body, and one spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling. Let there be but one Lord, one faith, one baptism: one God and father of all, which is above all through all, and in you all.
Unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith: He is gone up on high, and hath led captivity captive, and hath given gifts unto men. That he ascended: what meaneth it, but that he also descended first into the lowest parts of the earth? He that descended, is even the same also that ascended up, even above all heavens, to fulfil all things.
And the very same made some Apostles, some Prophets, some Evangelists, some Shepherds, some Teachers: that the saints might have all things necessary to work and minister with all, to the edifying of the body of Christ, till we every one (in the unity of faith, and knowledge of the son of God) grow up unto a perfect man, after the measure of age of the fullness of Christ. That we henceforth be no more children, wavering and carried with every wind of doctrine, by the *wiliness of men and craftiness, whereby they lay wait for us to deceive us. But let us follow the truth in love, and in all things grow in him which is the head, that is to say Christ, in whom all the body is coupled and knit together in every joint wherewith one ministereth to another (according to the operation as every part hath his measure) and increaseth the body, unto the edifying of itself in love.
This I say therefore and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in vanity of their mind, blinded in their understanding, being strangers from the life which is in God through the ignorancy that is in them, because of the blindness of their hearts, which being past repentance, have given themselves unto wantonness, to work all manner of uncleanness, even with greediness. But ye have not so learned Christ, if so be ye have heard of him and are taught in him, even as the truth is in Jesu. So then as concerning the conversation in time past, lay from you that old man, which is corrupt through the deceivable lusts, and be ye renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on that new man, which after the image of God is shapen in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore put away lying, and speak every man truth unto his neighbor, for as much as we are members one of another.
Be angry but sin not: let not the *son go down upon your wrath, neither give place unto the backbiter. Let him that stole, steal no more, but let him rather labour with his hands some good thing, that he may have to give unto him that needeth.
Let no filthy communication proceed out of your mouths: but that which is good to edify with all, when need is: that it may have favour with the hearers. And grieve not the holy spirit of God, by whom ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, fierceness and wrath, roaring and cursed speaking, be put away from you, with all maliciousness. Be ye courteous one to another, and merciful, forgiving one another, even as God for Christs sake forgave you
*wiliness (deception) *son go down upon your wrath:exactly as recorded
TO THE COLLOSSIANS Chpt 2
I would ye knew what fighting I have for your sakes and for them of Laodicia, and for as many as have not seen my person in the flesh that their hearts might be comforted and knit together in love, and in all riches of full understanding, for to know the mystery of God the father and of Christ, in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. This I say lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I present with you in the spirit, joying and beholding the order that ye keep, and your steadfast faith in Christ. As ye have therefore received Christ Jesu the Lord, even so walk, rooted and built in him and steadfast in the faith, as ye have learned: and therin be plenteous in giving thanks.
Beware lest any man come and spoil you through philosophy and deceitful vanity, through the traditions of men, and ordinances after the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and ye are complete in him which is the head of all rule and power, in whom also ye are circumcised with circumcision made without hands, by putting off the sinful body of the flesh through the circumcision that is in Christ, in that ye are buried with him through baptism, in whom ye are also risen again through faith, that is wrought by the operation of God which raised him from death.
And ye which were dead in sin through the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened with him and hath forgiven us all our trespasses and hath put out the handwriting that was against us, contained in the law written: and that hath he taken out of the way and hath fastened it to his cross, and hath spoiled rule and power and hath made a show of them openly, and hath triumphed over them in his own person.
Let no man therefore trouble your consciences about meat and drink or for a piece of an holy day, as the holy day of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days, which are nothing but shadows of things to come: but the body is in Christ. Let no man make you shoot at a wrong mark which after his own imagination walketh in the humbleness and holiness of angels, things which he never saw: causeless puffed up with his fleshly mind, and holdeth not the head, whereof all the body by joints and couples receiveth nourishment and is knit together, and increaseth with the increasing that cometh of God.
Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from ordinances of the world, why as though ye yet lived in the world, are ye led with traditions of them that say? Touch not, taste not, handle not: which all perish with the using of them and are after the commandments and doctrines of men: which things have the similitude of wisdom in chosen holiness and humbleness, and in that they spare not the body, and do the flesh no worship unto his need
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 5
The elders which are among you, I exhort, which am also an elder and a witness of the afflictions of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be opened: see that ye feed Christs flock which is among you taking the oversight of them not as though ye were compelled thereto, but willingly: not for the desire of filthy lucre, but of a good mind, not as though ye were lords over the parishes: but that ye be an example to the flock. And when the chief shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive an incorruptible crown of glory. Likewise ye younger submit your selves unto the elder. Submit your selves every man, one to another, knit yourselves together in lowliness of mind. For God resisteth the proud and giveth grace to the humble. Submit your selves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you, when the time is come. Cast all your care to him: for he careth for you.
Be sober and watch, for your adversary the devil as a roaring lion walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist steadfast in the faith, remembering that ye do but fulfil the same afflictions which are appointed to your brethren that are in the world. The God of all grace, which called you unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, shall his own self after ye have suffered a little affliction make you perfect: shall settle strength and establish you. To him be glory and dominion for ever, and while the world endureth. Amen.
By Silvanus a faithful brother unto you (as I suppose) have I written briefly, exhorting and testifying how that this is the true grace of God, wherein ye stand. The companions of your election that are of Babylon, saluteth you, and Marcus my son. Greet ye one another with the kiss of love. Peace be with you all which are in Christ Jesus. Amen
