the spear ...destroyed...

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 a man who loves God and Christ in spirit and truth ...

     and he was in a place of higher learning ...

     and there was a rushing and pushing and crowding ...one place to another ...

     and the man rested on a couch near a window ...

     and a woman came along and was full of scorn and wrath ...

     and she glowered hatefully on the man who loves God and Christ in spirit and truth ...

     and the man looked up and said w h a t ...what id wrong ?? 

     and she said you are resting on all my fine garments and coats ...

     even on scarlet rags and and covering and coats and robes ...

     and the man jumped up and was astonished ...for it was even as she said ...

     and the man who loves God and Christ in spirit and truth asked what is all this ...

     and the woman said that her husband hated her ...(because if her whoredom  ) 

     and has cast her out of his house ...

     and all her coverings and garments he through out too ...

     and as the man who loved God and Christ in spirit and truth stood there ...another woman came ...

     and she was the new wife of the husband ...

     and she had all the riches of the first wife ...

     and all she was dressed in was white ...

     and the wife of whoredom was furious ...

     and took her scarlet rags and and covering and coats and robes ...

     and she left ...

     and the man who loves God and Christy in spirit and truth said ...does anyone see this ? 

     evenso only a few would hear anything of the love of God and Christ ...

     and fewer still of anything in spirit and truth of God and Christ ...

     nevertheless the man who loves God and Christ in spirit and truth spoke on ...

     and against the fear of of the world of the worldly ...

     and in an instant a huge spear appeared ...

     and the man who loves God and Jesus in spirit and truth took the spear ...

     and the spear was like a beam of wood ...

     even as a heavy logging peavy ...

     and the man held up to spear for any to see ...

     and there was great fear of the spear ...

     and what harm it might do ...

     nevertheless the man who loves God and Christ in spirit and truth threw the spear ...

     and the spear went away from the place of higher learning ...  

     and over the walls of the place ...

     and when the many saw not the spear ...they feared no more ...

     evenso the man who loves God and Christ in spirit and truth went forth ...

     and he took his grandson ...who was like a child ...

     and he went out of the place ...to find the spear ...

     and to show the people the more ...not to fear the spear ...

     Now as he left the place of higher learning ...there was ruin ... 

     and the land was full of hooks and brambles and thorns and spikes ...

     even as twisted and tangled barbed wire ...

     and the foundations of the past were broken and fallen down ...

     and the gates and fences and walls were all crumbling crooked and ruined ...

     and black flies and gnats and biting flies were thick as clouds ...

     and the man who loves God and Christ in spirit and truth protected the child ...

     and wrapped him in his coat ...

     and he went until he found the heavy spear ...that everyone feared ...

     and he looked and the spear was broken in many pieces ...

     and of nothing worth ...

     and the man who loves God and Christ in spirit and truth held up the broken spear ...

     even for any and all to see ...

     even that any and all might receive ...and have no fear ...

     nevertheless those on the other side of the high walls ...could not see ...

     even so a few looked over the wall (of their own understanding or scholiarship ) ...

     and a few did see ...

     and were shown ...

 

and scripture came back to remembrance ...

 

FIRST BOOK OF SAMUEL Chpt 17

The Philistines gathered their host to battle, and came together to Socoh in Juda, and pitched between Socoh and Azekah, in the end of Domim. And Saul and the men of Israel came and pitched in Oakdale and put themselves in array, to fight against the Philistines. And the Philistines stood on an hill on the one side, and Israel stood on an hill on the other side, and a valley between them. And then came a man and stood in the midst, out of the tents of the Philistines named Goliath of Geth, six cubits and a *handbreadth long, and had an helmet of brass upon his head, and a coat of mail about him. And the weight of his coat of mail was five thousand *Cickles, of brass. And he had harness of brass upon his legs, and a shield of brass upon his shoulders. And the shaft of his spear was like a weavers beam. And his spearhead weighed six hundred *sickles of iron. And one bearing a shield went before him.
       And he stood and called unto the host of Israel, and said unto them: what needeth that ye should come out in array to battle? am not I a Philistine, and you servants to Saul? Choose you a man, and let him come down to me, if he be able to fight with me and to beat me, then we will be your servants. But if I can overcome him and beat him: then ye shall be our servants and serve us. And the Philistine said: I have defied the host of Israel this day give me a man and let us fight together. When Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were discouraged and greatly afraid. And this David was the son of an Ephrathite of Bethlehem Juda, named Isai, which Isai had eight sons. And was an old man in the days of Saul among the people. And the three eldest sons of Isai went and followed Saul to battle. And the names of his three sons that went to battle were: Eliab the eldest, and the next to him Abinadab, and the third Samah, and David was the youngest. And when the three eldest were gone after Saul, David went and departed from Saul, to feed his fathers sheep at Bethlehem. And the Philistine came forth every morning and evening, and continued forty days.
      And Isai said unto David his son: take for thy brethren this Epha of parched corn, and these ten loaves, and run to the host, to thy brethren. And carry these ten fresh cheeses unto the captain, and look how thy brethren fare, and set out their pledges. And Saul and they and all the men of Israel were in oak valley fighting with the Philistines. And David rose up early in the morning and left the sheep with a keeper, and took and went, as Isai had commanded him, and came where the host lay. And the host was going out in array, and shouted in the battle: for Israel and the Philistines had put themselves in array, the one against the other. Then David put the pannier from him, unto the hands of the keeper of the vessels, and ran into the host and came and saluted his brethren. And as he talked with them: Behold, there stood a man in the midst, Goliath the Philistine by name, of Geth, which came out of the Array of the Philistines, and spake of the manner above rehearsed, that David heard it. And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, ran away from him, and were sore afraid. And every man of Israel said: See ye this man that is come forth, even to revile Israel is he come. And to him that beateth him will the king give great riches, and will give him his daughter thereto: yea and make his fathers house free in Israel.
      Then spake David to the men that stood by and said: What shall be done to the man that beateth this Philistine and taketh away the shame from Israel? for what is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should revile the host of the living God? And the people answered as it is rehearsed saying: so shall it be done to the man that beateth him. And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the man and was angry with David and said: Why camest thou away, and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride and the malice of thine heart, that thou art come to see the battle. And David answered, what have I now done? is there any more save a word? And departed from by him into another front, and spake of the same manner, and the people answered him again, as before.
      And they that heard the words which David spake, rehearsed them before Saul, which caused him to be fetched. And David said to Saul: Let no mans heart fail him because of him. Thy servant will go and fight with his Philistine. And Saul said to David again, thou art not able to go unto this Philistine, to fight with him. For thou art but a lad, and he hath been a man of war even from his youth. Then said David unto Saul, as thy servant kept his fathers sheep, there came a Lion and likewise a Bear, and took a sheep out of the flock. And I went out after him and smote him, and took it out of his mouth. And when he arose against me, I caught him by the beard and smote him and slew him. For both a Lion and also a Bear hath thy servant slain. And this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, for his railing on the host of the living God. And David spake moreover, the Lord that delivered me out of the hands of the Lion and out of the hands of the Bear, he shall deliver me also out of the hands of the Philistine.
      Then said Saul to David go, and the Lord be with thee. And Saul put his raiment upon David, and put an helmet of brass upon his head, and put a coat of mail upon him, and girt David with his own sword upon his raiment. And he assayed to go, for he never proved it. Then said David unto Saul: I cannot go in these, for I have not been used thereto, and put them off him and took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of a brook and put them in a shepherds bag which he had, and in a poke, and his sling in his hand, and went to the Philistine.
       And the Philistine came and drew near to David, with the man that bare a shield before him. And when the Philistine looked and saw David: he disdained him, for he was but a lad, ruddy and goodly to look upon. And the Philistine said unto David: am I a dog, that thou comest to me with a staff? and he cursed David in the name of his Gods. And he said to David: come to me and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field. Then said David to the Philistine thou comest to me with a sword a spear and a shield: But I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the host of Israel whom thou hast railed upon. This day shall the Lord deliver thee into my hand, and I shall smite thee and take thine head from thee, and will give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air and to the beasts of the earth, and all the world shall know, that there is a God in Israel. And all this congregation shall know, that the Lord saveth not with the sword and spear. For the battle is the Lords, and he shall give you into our hands.
      And when the Philistine arose and came and drew nigh unto David: David hasted and ran in array even against the Philistine. And David put his hand in his poke and took out a stone and slung it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead that the stone sunk into his forehead, and he fell grovelling to the earth. And so David overcame the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and smote the Philistine and slew him. And because David had no sword in his hand, he ran and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword and drew it out of his sheath and slew him and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled. And the men of Israel and of Juda arose and shouted and followed after the Philistines, until they came to the valley and unto the gates of Akaron. And the Philistines fell down dead by the way, even unto Geth and Akaron. And then the children of Israel returned from chasing after the Philistines and robbed their tents. And David took the head of the Philistine and brought it to Jerusalem: But he put his armor in his tent. When Saul saw David go forth against the Philistine, he said unto Abner the captain of his host, Abner, whose son is this lad? And Abner answered, as truly as thy soul liveth, O king, I cannot tell. Then said the king: Enquire thou, whose son the youngling is. And so when David was returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, Abner took him and brought him before Saul, with the head of the Philistine in his hand. And Saul said to him: whose son art thou, thou lad? And David answered the son of thy servant Isai the Bethlehemite

*handbreadth long, (just over 9') *Cickle or sickle (5000= nearly 160 lbs, six hundred *sickles (nearly 20 lbs.) : "modern" Hebrew scale of measurement : shekel = about 1/2 oz it is nevertheless possible that ancient measurements were based on "giants" and their physical stature, for gaints ruled the land as it is recorded; making then these sizes and weights much larger.

 

FIRST BOOK OF SAMUEL Chpt 19

Then Saul communed with Jonathas his son, and with all his servants, that they should kill David. But Jonathas Sauls son had a great favour to David, and told David saying: Saul my father goeth about to slay thee. Now therefore take heed to thyself *betimes and abide in some secret place and hide thyself. And I will go out and stand by my father in the field where thou art, and will commune with my father of thee, and if I can perceive *ought I will tell thee. And Jonathas spake the best of David unto Saul his father and said unto him: let not the king sin against his servant David, for he hath not sinned against thee, and his works are to thee ward very good. For he did put his life in his hand and slew the Philistine, and the Lord gave a great victory to all Israel. And thou sawest it, and thou rejoiced, wherefore then shouldest thou sin against innocent blood, and slay David for nought? And Saul hearkened unto the voice of Jonathas and sware: as truly as the Lord liveth, he shall not die. Then Jonathas called David and showed him all those words, and brought him to Saul. And he was in his presence as in times past.
      And the war began again, and David went out and fought with the Philistines and slew a great slaughter, and put them to flight. And the evil spirit of the Lord was upon Saul as he sat in his house having a *Javelin in his hand, and David played with his hand. And Saul intended to nail David to the wall with the *Javelin: But David rid himself out of Sauls presence and he smote the spear into the wall. But David fled and saved himself that same night. Then Saul sent messengers unto Davids house, to watch him and to slay him in the morning. But Michol his wife told it him saying: If thou save not thyself this night, tomorrow thou art a dead man. And so Michol let David down through a window, and he went and fled and saved himself. And then she took an Image and laid it in the bed, and put a pillow stuffed with goats hair under the head of it, and covered it with a cloth. And when Saul sent messengers to fetch David, she said that he was sick. Then Saul sent the messengers to see David saying: bring him to me, bed and all, that he may be slain. And when the messengers were come in: Behold there lay an Image in the bed, with a pillow of goats hair under the head of it. Then said Saul to Michol: why hast thou mocked me so, and sent away mine enemy, that he is escaped? And Michol answered Saul: he said unto me, let me go, or else I will kill thee. And so David fled and escaped and went to Samuel to Ramath and told him all that Saul had done to him. And he, and Samuel went and dwelt in Naioth.
      And it was told Saul saying: Behold, David is at Naioth in Ramath, then Saul sent messengers to fetch David. And when they saw a company of prophets prophesying and Samuel standing fast by them, the spirit of God fell upon the messengers of Saul, and they prophesied too. And when it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they prophesied likewise. And Saul sent messengers yet again the third time which prophesied also. Then went he himself to Ramath, and when he came to a great well that is in Socoh, he asked and said: where are Samuel and David? And they said: see they be at Naioth in Ramath and as he went thither to Naioth in Ramath the spirit of God came upon him also and he went prophesying, until he came to Naioth in Ramath. And he stripped off his clothes and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and fell naked all that day and all that night, wherefore it is a common saying, is Saul also among the prophets?

*betimes (quickly, soon) *ought (anything)      *J capital as recorded *Javelin : throwing spear

FIRST BOOK OF SAMUEL Chpt 26

After that came the Ziphites unto Saul to Gabaah saying: David hideth himself in the hill of Hachilah even before the wilderness. Then Saul arose and went to the wilderness of Ziph and three thousand chosen men of Israel with him, for to seek David in the wilderness of Ziph. And Saul pitched in the hill of Hachilah which lieth before the wilderness, by the ways side. But David dwelt in the wilderness. And when he saw that Saul came after him into the wilderness, he sent out spies and understood that Saul was come of surety.
      Wherefore David arose and went to the place where Saul had pitched, and beheld the place where Saul lay with Abner the son of Ner his chief captain. For Saul lay within a round bank and the people pitched round about him. Then answered David and spake to Ahimelech the Hethite and to Abisai the son of Zaruiah and brother to Joab saying: who will go down with me to Saul to the host? Abisai said: I will go down with thee.
      And so David and Abisai came to the people by night. And behold, Saul lay sleeping within a round bank and his spear pitched in the ground at his head, Abner and the people lying round about him. The said Abisai to David: God hath closed in thine enemy unto thine hand this day. Now therefore let me smite him a fellowship with my spear to the earth, even one stroke, and I will not smite him the second time. But David said to Abisai: destroy him not, for who can lay his hand on the Lords anointed and be guiltless? And David said furthermore: as sure as the Lord liveth, the Lord shall smite him, or his day shall come to die, or he shall descend into battle and there perish: but the Lord keep me from laying mine hand upon the Lords anointed. Now then take a fellowship the spear that is at his head, and the cruse of water, and let us go. And David took the spear and the cruse of water that were at Sauls head, and they gat them away, and no man saw or knew it or awoke. For they were all asleep. Because the Lord had sent a slumber upon them. Then David went over to the other side and stood on the top of an hill afar off (a great space being between them) and cried to the people and to Abner the son of Ner saying: Answerest thou not Abner? and Abner answered and said: What art thou that criest to the king? and David said to Abner: art not thou a man, and who is like thee in Israel? But wherefore hast thou not kept thy Lord the king? For there came one of the folk to destroy the king thy Lord. It is not good that thou hast done. As truly as the Lord liveth ye are worthy to die, because ye have no better kept the Lords anointed. And now see where the kings spear is and the cruse of water that were at his head.
      Then Saul knew Davids voice and said: is this thy voice my son David? and David said: it is my voice my Lord king. And he said thereto wherefore doth my lord persecute his servant? for what have I done? or what evil is in mine hand? Now hear therefore (my Lord king) the words of thy servant. If the Lord have stirred thee up against me, he shall smell the savour of sacrifice. But and if they be the children of men, cursed be they before the Lord. For they have cast me out from abiding in the inheritance of the Lord, saying: hence and go serve other Gods. And yet I hope my blood shall not fall to the earth before the face of the Lord, though the King of Israel be come out to hunt a flea, as men hunt the partridges in the mountains. Then said Saul: I have sinned, come again my son David for I will do thee no more harm, because my soul was precious in thine eyes this day. Behold, I have played the fool and have errored exceeding much. And David answered and said: Behold the Kings spear, let one of the young men come over and fetch it. The Lord reward every mans righteousness and faith: for the Lord delivered thee into my hand this day, but I would not lay my hand upon the Lords anointed. And as thy life was much set by this time in mine eyes: so be my life set by in the eyes of the Lord, that he deliver me out of all tribulation. And Saul said to David: Blessed art thou my son David: for thou shalt be a doer and also able to bring to an end. And so David went his way, and Saul turned to his place again

THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 19

  Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part, and also his coat. The coat was without seam, wrought upon throughout. And they said one to another. Let us not divide it, but cast lots who shall have it. That the scripture might be fulfilled which saith. They parted my raiment among them, and on my coat did cast lots. And the soldiers did such things indeed.
      There stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mothers sister Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple standing whom he loved, he said unto his mother: woman behold thy son. Then said he to the disciple: behold thy mother. And from that hour the disciple took her for his own.
      After that when Jesus perceived that all things were performed: that the scripture might be fulfilled: he said: I thirst. There stood a vessel full of vinegar by. And they filled a sponge with vinegar, and wound it about with hyssop, and put it to his mouth. As soon as Jesus had received of the vinegar, he said: It is finished, and bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. The Jewes then because it was the Saboth evening, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Saboth day (for that Saboth day was an high day) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken down. Then came the soldiers and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with Jesus. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already they brake not his legs: but one of the soldiers with a spear, thrust him into the side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
      And he that saw it, bare record, and his record is true. And he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe also. These things were done that the scripture should be fulfilled. Ye shall not break a bone of him. And again another scripture saith: They shall look on him, whom they pierced. After that, Joseph of Arimathia (which was a disciple of Jesus: but secretly for fear of the Jewes) besought Pilate that he might take down the body of Jesus. And Pilate gave him license. And there came also Nicodemus which at the beginning came to Jesus by night, and brought of myrrh and aloes mingled together about an hundred pound weight. Then took they the body of Jesus and wound it in linen clothes with the odors, as the manner of the Jewes is to bury. And in the place where Jesus was crucified, was a garden, and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man laid. There laid they Jesus because of the Jewes Saboth even, for the sepulchre was nigh at hand
