the pride of the works of the hands...

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 shown in the land of the eagle ...

and there was a very vast museum ...

and the museum was unto...their flying ...through the air ...

and within ...within the proud... building...was air craft ...and devices of the air ... 

and there was a huge air craft ...

and within the aircraft ...was other models and images ...of air crafts...

and within the models and images were even other air crafts ...

and so it was that within ...within ...and within ...was the pride of and the honoring of their own works ...of their own hands ...

 

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.

 

THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 13

Vain are all men, which have not the knowledge of God: as were they that out of the good things which are seen, knew not him, that of himself is everlasting. Neither took they so much regard of the works that are made, as to know, who was the craftsman of them: but some took the fire, some the wind or air, some the course of the stars, some the water, some took Sun and Moon, or the lights of heaven which rule the earth, for gods. But though they had such pleasure in their beauty, that they thought them to have been gods: yet should they have known, how much more fairer he is that made them. For the maker of beauty hath ordained all these things. Or if they marveled at the power and works of them, they should have percieved thereby, that he which made these things are mightier than they.
      For by the greatness and beauty of the creature, the maker thereof may plainly be known. Not withstanding they are the less to be blamed, that sought God, and would have found him, and yet missed. And why? for so much as they went about his works and sought after them, it is a token, that they regarded and held much of his works that are seen. howbeit they are not wholly to be excused. For if their knowledge and understanding was so great, that they could discern the world and its creatures, why did they not rather find out the Lord thereof?
      But unhappy are they, and among the dead is their hope, that call them Gods, which are but the works of mens hands: gold, silver, and the thing that is found out by conning, the similitude of beasts, or any vain stone that hath been made by hand of old. Or as when a carpenter cutteth down a tree out of the wood, and pareth the bark of it conningly: and so with the one part maketh a vessel to be used, and *dighteth meat with the residue. As for the other part that is left, which is profitable for nothing ( for it is a crooked piece of wood and full of knobs, he carveth it diligently through his vanity, and according to the knowledge of his conning ) he giveth it some proportion, fashioneth it after the similitude of a man, or maketh it like some beast, streak it over with red, and painteth it, and look what foul spot is in it he casteth some color upon it.
      Then maketh he a convenient tabernacle for it, setteth it in the wall, and maketh it fast with iron, providing so for it, least it happen to fall: for it is well known, that it can not help itself: And why? it is but an image, and must of necessity be helped.
      Then goeth he and offereth of his goods unto it, for his children and his wife: he seeketh help at it, he asketh counsel at it: he is not ashamed to speak unto it that hath no soul: for health, he maketh his petition unto him that is sick: for life, he prayeth unto him that is dead: he calleth upon him for help, that is not able to help himself: and to send him a good journey, he prayeth him that may not go. And in all the things that he taketh in hand ( whether it be to obtain anything or to work ) he prayeth unto him that can do no manner of good

*dighteth (boil)

THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 15

    But thou ( O' our God ) art sweet, long suffering and true, and in mercy orderest thou all things. Though we sin, yet we are thine, for we know thy strength. If we sin not, then are we sure, that thou regard us. For to know thee, is perfect righteousness: Yee to know thy righteousness and power, is the root of immortality. As for the thing that men have found out through their evil science, it hath not deceived us: as the painting of a picture ( an unprofitable labor ) an carved image, with diverse colors, whose sight enticeth the ignorant: so that he honoreth and loveth the picture of the dead image that hath no soul.
      Nevertheless, they that love such evil things, are worthy of death: they that trust in them, they that make them, they that love them, and they that honor them. The potter also taketh and tempereth soft earth, laboreth it, and giveth it the fashion of a vessel, whatsoever serveth for our use: and so of one piece of clay he maketh some clean vessel for service, and some contrary. But where to every vessel serveth, that knoweth not the potter himself. So with his vain labor he maketh a God of the same clay: this doth even he, which a little afore was made of earth himself, and within a little while after ( when he dieth ) turneth to earth again.
      Notwithstanding, he careth not the more because he shall labor, ner because his life is short: but striveth to excel goldsmiths, the silversmiths and coppersmiths, and taketh it for an honor to make vain things. For his heart is ashes, his hope is but vain earth, and his life is more vile than clay: for so much as he knoweth not his own maker, that gave him his soul to work, and breath in him the breath of life. They count our life but a pastime and our conversation to be but a market, and that men should ever be getting, and that by evil means. Now he that of earth maketh frail vessels and images, knoweth himself to offend above all other.
      All the enemies of thy people and that hold them in subjection, are unwise, unhappy, and exceedingly proud unto their own souls: for they judge all the Idols of the Heathen to be gods, which neither have eye sight to see, ner noses to smell, ner ears to hear, nor fingers of hands for to grope: and as for their feet, they are too slow to go. For man made them, and he that hath but a borrowed spirit, fashioned them. But no man can make a God like unto him: for seeing he is but mortal himself, it is but mortal that he maketh with ungodly hands. He himself is better then they whom he worshipeth, for he lived though he was mortal, but so did never they. Yee they worship beasts also, which are most miserable: for compare things that cannot feel unto them, and they are worse then those. Yet is there not one of these beasts, that with his sight can behold any good thing, neither have they given praise ner thanks unto God

 

 and a part of a nighmare of Hell came back to remembrance ...

     

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...
