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 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 the world of the worldly being destroyed ...
even the earth ...
and i was shown an engineer under a heaviness ...trapped ...
even unto death ...
and a man appeared that loved God his father and Jesus his brother and Lord.
and that in spirit and truth.
and the appearing man reached out to the trapped engineer ...
and brought him out from under the deadly heaviness...
and the engineer was so happy to be saved ...of the deadly heaviness ...
even so much so that he offered ...the reaching out man ...a job ...
and that within the engineering office where he worked ...
and the destruction of the earth ...was a care less thing ...
even as words came without speaking ...these have destroyed themselves ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...*Zodom (Sodom) *suffer (allow) *anon (shortly). *quere : place of asking ...where petitions are heard
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 11
And then was given me a reed, like unto a rod, and it was said unto me: Rise and meet the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein, and the *quere which is within the temple, cast out and meet it not: for it is given unto the Gentiles, and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty two months. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy one thousand, two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sack cloth. These are two olive trees, and two candlesticks, standing before the God of the earth.
And if any man will hurt them, fire shall proceed out of their mouths, and consume their enemies. And if any man will hurt them this wise must he be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophesying: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all manner plagues, as often as they will.
And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that came out of the bottomless pit, shall make war against them and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their bodies shall lie in the streets of the great city, which spiritually is called *Zodom and Eygpt, where our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds, and tongues, and they of the nations, shall see their bodies three days and an half, and shall not *suffer their bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth, shall rejoice over them and be glad, and shall send gifts one to another for these two Prophets vexed them that dwelt on the earth.
And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God, entered into them. And they stood up upon their feet: and great fear came upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven, saying unto them. Come up hither. And they ascended up into heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain names of men seven thousand and the remnant were feared, and gave glory to God of heaven. The second woe is past, and third woe will come *anon.
And the seventh angel blew, and there were made great voices in heaven, saying: the kingdoms of this world are our Lords and his Christs, and he shall reign for evermore. And the twenty four elders, which sit before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God saying: we give thee thanks Lord God almighty: which art and wast, and art to come, for thou hast received thy great might, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead that they should be judged and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the Prophets and Saints, and to them that fear thy name small and great and shouldest destroy them, which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple, the ark of his testament: and there followed lightnings, and voices, and thunderings and earthquake, and much hail.
THE BOOK OF THE PREACHER Chpt 2
Then said I thus in mine heart: Now go to, I will take mine ease and have good days. But lo, that was vanity also: in so much as I said unto laughter: thou art mad, and to *mirth: What doest thou?
So I thought in my heart, *to withdraw myself from wine, to apply my mind unto wisdom, and to comprehend foolishness until the time that among all things which are under the Sun, I might see what were best for men do, so long as they live under heaven.
I made gorgeous fair works. I builded me houses, and planted vineyards. I made me orchards and gardens of pleasure, and planted trees in them of all manner fruits. I made pools of water, to water the green and fruitful trees withal. I bought servants and maidens, and had a great household. As for cattle and sheep, I had more substance of them, then all they that were before me in Jerusalem. I gathered silver and gold together, even a treasure of kings and lands.
I provided me singers and women which could play of instruments, to make man mirth and pastime. I got me drinking cups also and glasses. Shortly, I was greater and in more worship, than all my predecessors in Jerusalem. For wisdom remained with me: And look whatsoever mine eyes desired, I let them have it: and wherein so ever my heart delighted, or had any pleasure, I withheld it not from it. Thus my heart rejoiced in all that I did, and this I took of all my travail. But when I considered all the works that my hands had wrought, and all the labors that I had taken therin: Lo, all was vanity and vexation of mind, and nothing of any value under the Sun. Then turned I me to consider wisdom, error and foolishness, for what is he among men, that might be compared to me the king in such work? And I saw that wisdom excelleth foolishness, as far as light doeth darkness. For a wise man beareth his eyes about in his head, but the fool goeth in the darkness. I perceived also that they both had one end. Then thought I in my mind: If it happeneth unto the fool as it doeth unto me, what needeth me then to labor any more for wisdom? So I confessed within my heart, that this also was but vanity. For the wise are ever as little in remembrance as the foolish, and all the days for to come shall be forgotten, Yee the wise man dieth as well as the fool. Thus began I to be weary of my life, in so much that I could away with nothing that is done under the Sun, for all was vanity and vexation of mind: Yee I was weary of all my labor, which I had taken under the Sun, because I should be *faine to leave them unto another man, that cometh after me for who knoweth, whether he shall be a wise man or a fool? And yet shall he be lord of all my labors, which I with such wisdom have taken under the Sun. Is this not a vain thing?
So I turned me to refrain from all such travail, as I took under the Sun: For so much as a man should weary himself with wisdom, with understanding and opportunity, and yet be fain to leave his labors unto another, that never sweat for them. This is also a vain thing and a great misery. For what getteth a man of all that labor and travail of his mind, that he taketh under the Sun, but heaviness, sorrow and disquietness all the days of his life? In so much that his heart can not rest in the night. Is this not also a vain thing? Is it not better then for a man to eat and drink, and his soul to be merry in his labor? Yee I saw that this also was a gift of God: For who may eat, drink, or bring anything to pass without him? And why? He giveth unto man, what it pleaseth him: whether it be wisdom, understanding, or gladness. But unto the sinner he giveth weariness and sorrow, that he may gather and heap together the thing, that afterward shall be given unto him whom it pleaseth God. This is now a vain thing, yee a very disquietness and vexation of mind
*mirth from the Hebrew is joy, gladness, rejoice
*to withdraw myself from wine; * (kjv and other bibles of man =to give myself unto wine )
*faine (obliged/ willing happy)
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 65
They shall seek me, that hitherto have not asked for me, they shall find me, that hitherto have not sought me. Then shall I say immediately to the people that never called upon my name: I am here, I am here. For thus long have I ever holden out my hands to an unfaithful people, that go not in the right way, but after their own imaginations: To a people that is ever defying me to my face. They make their oblations in gardens, and their smoke upon altars of brick, they lurk among the graves, and lie in the dens all night. They eat swine flesh, and unclean broth in their vessels. If thou comest nye them, they say: touch me not, for I am holier than thou.
All these men when I am angry, shall be turned to smoke and fire, that shall burn for ever. Behold, it is written before my face, and shall not be forgotten, but recompensed. I shall reward it them into their bosom: I mean your misdeeds, and the misdeeds of your fathers together ( saith the Lord ) which have made their smokes upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their old deeds into their bosom again. Moreover thus saith the Lord: like as when one would gather holy grapes, men say unto him: break it not off for it is holy: even so will I do also for my servants sakes, that I will not destroy them all. But I will take a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah one, to take possession of my hill. My chosen shall possess these things, and my servants shall dwell there. Saron shall be a sheepfold, and the valley of Achor shall give the stalling for the cattle of my people, that fear me. But as for you, ye are they, that have forsaken the Lord, and forgotten my holy hill. Yee have set up an altar to fortune, and given rich drink offerings unto treasure. Therefore will I number you with the sword, that ye shall be destroyed all together. For when I called, no man gave me answer: when I spake, ye hearkened not unto me, but did wickedness before mine eyes, and chose the thing that pleased me not.
Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall have hunger. Behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall suffer thirst. Behold, my servants shall be merry, but ye shall be confounded. Behold, my servants shall rejoice for very quietness of heart: But ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and complain for vexation of mind. Your name shall not be sworn by among my chosen, for God the Lord shall slay you, and call his servants by another name. Whoso rejoiceth upon the earth, shall rejoice in the true God: And whoso sweareth upon the earth, shall swear in the true God. For the old enmity shall be forgotten, and taken away out of my sight. For lo, I shall make a new heaven, and a new earth. And as for the old, they shall never be thought upon, ner kept in mind: but men shall be glad and evermore rejoice, for the things, that I shall do.
For why? Behold, I shall make a joyful Jerusalem, yee I myself will rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad with my people: And the voice of weeping and wailing shall not be heard in her from thenceforth. There shall never be child nor old man, that have not their full days. But when the child cometh to an hundred years old, it shall die. And if he that is an hundred years of age do wrong, he shall be cursed. They shall build houses, and dwell in them: they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another possess: they shall not plant, and another eat: But the life of my people shall be like a tree, and so shall the work of their hands.
My chosen shall live long, they shall not labor in vain, ner beget with trouble: for they are the high blessed seed of the Lord, and their fruits with them. And it shall be, that or ever they call, I shall answer them. While they are yet but thinking how to speak, I shall hear them. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat hay like the bullock. But earth shall be the serpents meat. There shall no man hurt nor slay another, in all my holy hill, sayeth the Lord
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 66
Thus saith the Lord: Heaven is my feet, and the earth is my footstool. Where shall now that house stand that ye build unto me? And where shall be the place, that I will dwell in ? As for these things, my hand hath made them all, and they are all created, saith the Lord. Which of them shall I then regard? Even him that is of a lowly troubled spirit, and standeth in awe of my works. For who so slayeth an ox for me, doeth me so great dishonor, as he that killeth a man. He that killeth a sheep for me, choketh a dog. He that bringeth me meat offerings, offereth swines blood: Who so maketh me a memorial of incense, praiseth the thing that is unright. Yet take they such ways in hand, and their soul delighteth in these abominations.
Therefore will I also have pleasure in laughing them to scorn, and the thing that they fear, will I bring upon them. For when I called no man gave answer: when I spake, they would not hear: But did wickedness before mine eyes, and chose the things that displeaseth me. Hear the word of God all ye, that fear the thing which he speaketh. Your brethren that hate you, and cast you out for my names sake, say: Let the Lord magnify himself, that we may see your gladness: and yet they shall be confounded.
For as touching the city and the temple, I hear the voice of the Lord, that will reward, and recompense his enemies: like as when a wife bringeth forth a man child, or ever she suffer the pain of the birth and anguish of the travail. Who ever heard or saw such things? doth the ground bare in one day? or are the people born all at once, as Sion beareth her sons? For thus sayeth the Lord: Am I he that maketh other to beare, and beare not myself? Am not I he that beareth, and maketh barren? sayeth thy God. Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her. Be joyful with her, all ye that mourned for her. For ye shall suck comfort out of her breasts, and be satisfied. Ye shall taste, and have delight in the plenteousness of her power. For thus saith the Lord: behold, I will let peace into her, like a water flood, and the might of the Heathen like a flowing stream. Then shall thee suck, ye shall be born upon her sides, and be joyful upon her knees. For like as a child is comforted of his mother, so shall I comfort you, and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem. And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb.
Thus shall the hand of the Lord be known among his servants, and his indignation among his enemies. For behold, the Lord will come with fire, and his chariot shall be like a whirlwind, that he may recompense his vengeance in his wrath and indignation with flame of fire. For the Lord shall judge all flesh with the fire and with his sword, and there shall be a great number slain of the Lord. Such as have made themselves holy and clean in gardens, and those that have eaten swines flesh, mice, and other abominations, shall be taken away together, sayeth the Lord. For I will come to gather all people and tongues with their works and imaginations: these shall come, and see my glory. Unto them shall I give a token, and send certain of them ( that be delivered ) among the Gentiles: into Celicia, *Atrica and Lidia (where men can handle bows ) into *Italye also and Greek land.
The isles far off, that have not heard speak of me, and have not seen my glory, shall preach my praise among the Gentiles and shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the Lord, out of all the people upon horses, chariots and horse litters, upon Mules and carts to Jerusalem my holy hill ( sayeth the Lord ) like as the children of Israel bring the offering in clean vessels, to the house of the Lord.
And I shall take out certain of them for to be priests and levites, sayeth the Lord. For like as the new heaven and the new earth which I will make, shall be fast established by me: ( sayeth the Lord ) So shall your seed and your name continue and there shall be a new Moon for the other, and a new Sabbath for the other, and all flesh shall come to worship before me ( sayeth the Lord ) And they shall go forth and look upon the *carions of them that have transgressed against me. For their worms shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched, and all flesh shall abhor them
*Atrica (Africa?) *Italye (Italy) *carions (dead bodies)
THE SECOND EPISTLE OF ST. PETER Chpt 3
This is the second epistle that I now write unto you, beloved, wherewith I stir up, and warn your pure minds, to call to remembrance the words which were told before of the holy Prophets, and also the commandment of us the Apostles of the Lord and saviour.
This first understand that there shall come in the last days mockers, which will walk after their own lusts and say, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers died, all things continue in the same estate wherein they were at the beginning. This they know not (and that willingly) how that the heavens a great while ago were, and the earth that was in the water, appeared up out of the water, by the word of God: by the which things the world that then was, perished, overflowen with the water. But the heavens verily and earth which are now, are kept by the same word in store, and reserved unto fire, against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
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.
Nevertheless the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in the which day, the heavens shall perish with terrible noise, and the elements shall melt with heat, and the earth with the works that are therein shall burn.
If all these things shall perish, what manner persons ought ye to be in holy conversation and godliness: looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, in which the heavens shall perish with fire, and the elements shall be consumed with heat. Nevertheless we look for a new heaven and a new earth, according to his promise, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Wherefore dearly beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot and undefiled. And suppose that the long suffering of the Lord is salvation, even as our dearly beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given unto him, wrote to you, yee, almost in every epistle speaking of such things: among which are many things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable, pervert, as they do other scriptures unto their own destruction. Ye therefore beloved, seeing ye know it beforehand, beware lest ye be also plucked away with the error of the wicked, and fall from your own steadfastness: but grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. To whom be glory both now and for ever. Amen
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.
