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 a huge prowling wolf ...of darkness ...
and he was going about in the world of the worldly ...
and the vile wolf of darkness was slinking around to see who he could consume ...
and the vile wolf of darkness was as though dead...though walking ...
and hollow inside ...
and stinking and rotten ...within ...
even consumed ...consumed of maggots and worms and the blood sucking ...
and i looked and behold the head of the stinking wolf disappeared ...
Yet the body ...the hollow body of the stinking prowling wolf of darkness remained ...
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. JOHN Chpt 10
Verily, verily I say unto you: he that entereth not in by the door, into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way: the same is a thief and a robber. He that goeth in by the door, is the shepherd of the sheep: to him the porter openeth, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he hath sent forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but will fly from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. This similitude spake Jesus unto them. But they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them. Then said Jesus unto them again. Verily, verily I say unto you: I am the door of the sheep. All, even as many as came before me, are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be safe, and shall go in and out and find pasture. The thief cometh not but for to steal, kill and destroy. I am come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly.
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. An hired servant, which is not the shepherd, neither the sheep are his own, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and flyeth, and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hired servant flyeth, because he is an hired servant, and careth not for the sheep. I am that good shepherd, and know mine, and am known of mine. As my father knoweth me: even so know I my father. And I give my life for the sheep: and other sheep I have, which are not of this fold. Them also must I bring, that they may hear my voice, and that there may be one flock and one shepherd.
Therefore doth my father love me, because I put my life from me, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me: but I put it away of myself. I have power to put it from me, and have power to take it again: This commandment have I received of my father. And there was a dissension again among the Jewes for these sayings, and many of them said. He hath the devil, and is mad: why hear ye him? Other said, these are not the words of him that hath the devil. Can the devil open the eyes of the blind?
And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter: and Jesus walked in Solomons porch. Then came the Jewes round about him, and said unto him: How long dost thou make us doubt? If thou be Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them: I told you and ye believe not. The works that I do in my fathers name, they bear witness of me. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep. As I said unto you: my sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me, and I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My father which gave them me, is greater then all and no man is able to take them out of my fathers hand. And I and my father are one.
Then the Jewes again took up stones, to stone him with all. Jesus answered them: many good works have I showed you from my father: for which of them will ye stone me? The Jewes answered him saying. For thy good works sake we stone thee not: but for thy blasphemy, and because that thou being a man, makest thyself God. Jesus answered them: Is it not written in your law: I say, ye are Gods? If he called them Gods unto whom the word of God was spoken (and the scripture cannot be broken) say ye then to him, whom the father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, thou blasphemest, because I said I am the son of God? If I do not the works of my father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, yet believe the works, that ye may know and believe that the father is in me, and I in him.
Again they went about to take him: but he escaped out of their hands, and went away again beyond Jordan, into the place where John before had baptised, and there abode. And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man, are true. And many believed on him there
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 7
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For as ye judge so shall ye be judged. And with what measure ye *mete, with the same shall it be measured to you again. Why seest thou a *mote in thy brothers eye, and perceivest not the beam in thine own eye? Or why sayest thou to thy brother: suffer me to pluck out the mote out of thine eye, and behold a beam is in thine own eye. Hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pluck out the mote out of thy brothers eye.
Give not that which is holy, to dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they tread them under their feet, and the other turn again and all to rent you.
Ask and it shall be given you. Seek and ye shall find. Knock and it shall be opened unto you. For whosoever asketh receiveth, and he that seeketh findeth and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Is there any man among you which if his son asked him bread, would offer him a stone? Or if he asked fish, would he proffer him a serpent? If ye then which are evil, can give to your children good gifts how much more shall your father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
Therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, even so do ye to them. This is the law and the Prophets.
Enter in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction: and many there be which go in thereat. But strait is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life: and few there be that find it. Beware of false Prophets, which come to you in sheeps clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns? Or figs of briars? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit. But a corrupt tree, bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth bad fruite: nor yet a bad tree can bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
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.
Whosoever heareth of me these sayings and doeth the same, I will liken him unto a wise man which built his house on a rock: and abundance of rain descended, and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that same house, and it fell not, because it was grounded on the rock. And whosoever heareth of me these sayings and doth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man which built his house upon the land: and abundance of rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.
And it came to pass, that when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were *astonied at his doctrine. For he taught them as one having power, and not as the scribes
*mete: what ever is used to measure, *mote: a speck. *astonied: astounded, astonished.
THE SECOND TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 11
If the truth of Christ be in me, this rejoicing shall not be taken from me in the regions of Achaia. Wherefore? Because I love you not? God knoweth. Nevertheless what I do, that will I do, to cut away occasion from them which desire occasion, that they might be found like unto us in that wherein they rejoice. For these false apostles are deceitful workers, and fashion them selves like unto the Apostles of Christ. And no marvel, for Satan himself is changed into the fashion of an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing, though his ministers fashion them selves as though they were the ministers of righteousness: whose end shall be according to their deeds.
THE SECOND TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 5
We know surely if our earthy mansion wherein we now dwell were destroyed, that we have a building ordained of God, an habitation not made with hands, but eternal in heaven: And therefore sigh we, desiring to be clothed with our mansion which is from heaven: so yet if that we be found clothed, and not naked. For as long as we are in this tabernacle, we sigh and are grieved, for we would not be unclothed, but would be clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. He that hath ordained us for this thing, is God: which very same hath given unto us the earnest of the spirit.
Therefore we are always of good cheer, and know well that as long as we are at home in the body, we are absent from God. For we walk in faith and see not. Nevertheless we are of good comfort, and had *liefer to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. Wherefore, whether we be at home or from home we endeavor our selves to please him. For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that every man may receive the works of his body according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad?
TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 9
But Christ being an high priest of good things to come, came by a greater and a more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands: that is to say, not of this manner building, neither by the blood of goats and calves: but by his own blood he entered once for all into the holy place, and found eternal redemption. For if the blood of oxen and of goats and the ashes of an heifer, when it was sprinkled, purified the unclean, as touching the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ (which through the eternal spirit, offered him self without spot to God) purge your consciences from dead works for to serve the living God?
TRUE WORD...Oseas (thats Hosea chp 8 :14 for you kjv folks)
The Lord will have no pleasure therin: but will remember their wickednesses, and punish their sins. Israel turneth again into Egypt,
they have forgotten him that made them, they build churches, and Juda maketh many strong cities: therefore will I send a fire into their cities, and it shall consume their places.
These are the words that God spake unto Jeremie: Stand under the gates of the Lords house, and cry out these words there, with a loud voice, and say: Hear the word of the Lord all ye of Judah, that go in this door, to honor the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel. Amend your ways and your counsels, and I will let you dwell in this place. Trust not in the false lying words, saying: HERE IS THE TEMPLE of the Lord, HERE IS THE TEMPLE of the Lord, HERE IS THE TEMPLE of the Lord.
Are ye not aware 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
and of other measures of matters of the same ...
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 GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 14
And the high Priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesu, to put him to death and found none. Yet many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together. And there arose certain and brought false witness against him, saying. We heard him say: I will destroy this temple made with hands, and within three days I will build another, made without hands. But their witness agreed not together.
THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 7
How be it he that is highest of all, dwelleth not in temples made with hands, as saith the Prophet: Heaven is my seat, and earth is my footstool, what house will ye build for me saith the Lord? or what place is it that I should rest in hath not my hand made all these things?
THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 17
Paul stood in the midst of Marce street and said: ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by and beheld the manner how ye worship your gods, I found an altar wherein was written: unto the unknown God. Whom ye then ignorantly worship him show I unto you: God that made the world and all that are in it, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, he dwelleth not in temples made with hands, neither is worshipped with mens hands, as though he needed of any thing, seeing he himself giveth life and breath to all men everywhere, and hath made of one blood all nations of men, for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath assigned before, how long time, and also the ends of their inhabitation, that they should seek God, if they might feel and find him, though he be not far from every one of us. For in him we live, move and have your being, as certain of your own Poets said. For we are also his generation. For as much then as we are the generation of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, silver or stone, graven by craft and imagination of man.
And the time of this ignorance God regarded not. but now he biddeth all men everywhere repent, because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world according to righteousness, by that man whom he hath appointed, and hath offered faith to all men, after that he had raised him from death.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 8
Then said Jesus to those Jewes which believed on him. If ye continue in my words, then are ye my very disciples, and shall know the truth: and the truth shall make you free. They answered him: We be Abrahams seed, and were never bond to any man: why sayest thou then, ye shall be made free?
Jesus answered them: Verily, verily I say unto you, that whosoever committeth sin, is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: But the son abideth ever. If the son therefore shall make you free, then are ye free indeed. I know that ye are Abrahams seed: but ye seek means to kill me, because my sayings have no place in you. I speak that I have seen with my father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him: Abraham is our father. Jesus said unto them. If ye were Abrahams children ye would do the deeds of Abraham. But now ye go about to kill me, a man that have told you the truth which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they unto him: we were not born of fornication. We have one father, which is God. Jesus said unto them: if God were your father, then would ye love me. For I proceeded forth and come from God. Neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not know my speech? Even because ye cannot abide the hearing of my words.
