the store the branch and the egg...

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 an old store house ...

     even as in the ancient of days when the provisions were kept a high up ...

     and then the provisions were brought down from above ...

     and set before the people ...

     and i was shown an old man like the ancient of days ...stocking shelves in a place of provision ...

     and the shelves were full ...

     and the storage area above ...where he received the provisions was full ...

     and the old man continued to take the provisions from the storage area ...above ...

     and to stock the shelves ...below ...

     even keeping the shelves full ...

     Nevertheless it came to pass that the place of provision was taken over by a merchant ...

     even carelessly (could not care less) taking proud profit ...at the peoples expense ...

     and that without regard ...creating shortages ...to increase the pilfering pathetic profit.

     and the merchants son came to have power and rule over the place ...

     and with him he brought his friends ...

     and they mocked and laughed at the old man ...against his providing provisions... 

     and in an instant ...the place was empty ...like a store barren of good...goods...

     and shelves sat empty ...waiting for more dust to settle ...

     and the windows of the place became clouded of dust and dirt and filth from the street ...

     and sat like an abandoned ...merchants store ...sagging and crumbling ...in an empty town ...

     and i wondered a mighty wonder ...praying of spirit and soul ...

     and in an instant i was shown a branch of a tree ...

     and the branch was full of life and living and leaves and wondrous colors ... 

     even blossoms of beauty and bountiful blessings ...of fruits ...

     Yet in an instant the branch was broken off ...

     and handed to man ...

     and the branch withered in the mans hands ...

     even like as it was poisoned in the grip of man ...

     and the branch became as dead ...wood ...dry and cracking ...shrinking ...

     even as kindling ready for the fire ...

     and i wondered a mighty wonder ...praying of spirit and soul ...

     and in an instant i was shown an egg ...

     and the egg appeared all white and clean and worthy ...on the outside.

     and the egg was opened ..so as to see the inside ...

     and the inside of the egg was dry ...

     even as a shell discarded in the desert ...

     and the shell very thin and of hardness so brittle to break ...

     and behold the egg was empty ...

     even as there had been nothing ...born within ...

     and all of all that i was shown was swept away in boiling clouds ...

 

and scripture came back to remembrance ...

Amos Chpt 8

      The Lord God showed me this vision: and behold, there was a maunder with summer fruit. And he said: Amos, what seest thou? I answered: a maunder with summer fruit. Then said the Lord unto me: the end cometh upon my people Israel, I will no more oversee them. In that day shall the songs of the temple be turned to sorrow, sayeth the Lord God. Many dead bodies shall lie in every place, and be cast forth secretly. Hear this, O ye that oppress the poor, and destroy the needy in the lands, saying: When will the new month be gone, that we may sell vitals, and the Sabbath, that we may have scarceness of corn: to make the bushel less, and the Sickle greater? We shall set up false weights, that we may get the poor under us with their money, and the needy also for shoes: yee let us sell the chaff for corn.
      The Lord hath sworn against the pride of Jacob: these works of theirs I will never forget. Shall not the land tremble, and all they that dwell therin, mourn for this? Shall not their destruction come upon them like a water stream, and flow over them, as the flood of Egypt? At the same time ( sayeth the Lord God) I shall cause the sun to go down at noon, and the land to be dark in the clear of day. Your high feasts will I turn to sorrow, and your songs to mourning: I will bring sack cloth upon all backs, and baldness on every head: yee such a mourning will I send them, as is made upon an only begotten son, and they shall have an miserable end.
      Behold the time cometh ( sayeth the Lord God ) that I shall send an hunger into the earth: not the hunger of bread, nor the thirst of water: but an hunger to hear the word of the Lord: so that they shall go from one sea to the other, yee from the north unto the east, running about to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it. In that time shall the fair virgins and the young men perish for thirst, yee even they that swear in offense of Samaria, and say: as truly as thy God liveth at Dan, and as truly as thy God liveth at Bersaba. These shall fall, and never rise up again

THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 18

 And I heard another voice from heaven, say: come away from her my people, that ye be not partakers in her sins, that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins are gone up to heaven, and God hath remembered her wickedness. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and give her double according to her works. And pour in double to her in the same cup which she filled unto you. And as much as she glorified herself and lived wantonly so much pour ye in for her of punishment and sorrow, for she said in her heart: I sit being a queen and am no widow and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come at one day, death, and sorrow, and hunger, and she shall be burnt with fire: for strong is the Lord God which judgeth her.
      And the kings of the earth shall beweep her and wail over her, which have committed fornication with her, and have lived wantonly with her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, and shall stand afar off, for fear of her punishment, saying . Alas, Alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city: for at one hour is her judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and wail in themselves, for no man will buy their ware any more, the ware of gold and silver, and precious stones, neither of pearl, and raynes and purple, and scarlet, and all thine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass and of iron, and cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and bodies and souls of men.

THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 15

 I am the true vine, and my father is an husbandman. Every branch that beareth not fruit in me, he will take away. And every branch that beareth fruit, will he purge, that it may bring more fruit. Now are ye clean through the words which I have spoken unto you. Bide in me, and let me bide in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it bide in the vine: no more can ye except ye abide in me. I am the vine, and ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit. For without me can ye do nothing. If a man bide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered: and men gather it and cast it into the fire, and it burneth. If ye bide in me and my words also bide in you: ask what ye will, and it shall be done to you.
      Herein is my father glorified, that ye bear much fruit, and be made my disciples.
      As the father hath loved me, even so have I loved you. Continue in my love. If ye shall keep my commandments, ye shall bide in my love, even as I have kept my fathers commandments, and bide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
      This is my commandment, that ye love together as I have loved you. Greater love than this hath no man, than that a man bestow his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth call I you not servants: for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth. But you have I called friends: for all things that I have heard of my father I have opened to you.
      Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that ye go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit remain, that whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name, he should give it you.
      This command I you, that ye love together. If the world hate you, ye know that he hated me before he hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own. How be it because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore hateth you the world. Remember the saying that I said unto you: the servant is not greater than the Lord.
      If they have persecuted me, so will they persecute you. If they have kept my sayings, so will they keep yours.
      But all these things will they do unto you for my names sake, because they have not known him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them they should not have had sin: but now have they nothing to cloak their sin with all. He that hateth me, hateth my father. If I had not done works among them which none other man did, they had not had sin. But now have they seen, and yet have hated both me and my father: even that the saying might be fulfilled that is written in their law: they hated me without a cause.
      But when the comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the father, which is the spirit of truth, which proceedeth of the father, he shall testify of me. And ye shall bear witness also, because ye have been with me from the beginning

     THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 11

  And he said unto them: if any of you should have a friend, and should go to him at midnight, and say unto him: friend lend me three loaves, for a friend of mine is come out of the way to me, and I have nothing to set before him: and he within should answer and say, trouble me not, the door is now shut, and my servants are with me in the chamber, I cannot rise and give them to thee. I say unto you, though he would not arise and give him, because he is his friend: yet because of his importunity he would rise, and give him as many as he needed. And I say unto you: ask, and it shall be given you. Seek, and ye shall find. Knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh, receiveth: and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, shall it be opened. If the son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father: will he give him a stone? Or if he ask fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he ask an egg: will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then which are evil, can give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall the father of heaven give an holy spirit to them, that desire it of him?

JOB Chpt 6

 Job answered, and said: Oh that my misery were weighed, and my punishment weighed in the balances: For then should it be heavier, than the sand of the sea. This is the cause, that my words are so sorrowful.
      For the arrows of the allmighty are in me, whose indignation hath drunk up my spirit, and the terrible fears of God fight against me. Doth the wild ass roar when he hath grass? Or crieth the ox, when he hath fodder enough? That which is unsavory, shalt it be eaten without salt, or is there any taste in the white of an egg? The things that some time I might not away withal, are now my meat for very sorrow. O' that I might have my desire: O' that God would grant me the thing, that I long for: That he would begin and smite me: that he would let his hand go, and hew me down. Then should I have some comfort: yee, I would desire him in my pain, that he should not spare, for I will not be against the words of the holy one.
      What power have I to endure? Or, what is mine end, that my soul might be patient? Is my strength the strength of stones? Or is my flesh made of brass? Is it not so that there is in me no help? that my substance is taken from me. He that is in tribulation ought to be comforted of his neighbor: but the fear of the Lord is clean away: Mine own brethren pass over by me as the water broke, that hastily runneth through the valleys. But they that fear the hoarfrost, the snow shall fall upon them.
      When their time cometh, they shall be destroyed and perish: and when they be set on fire, they shall be removed out of their place, for the paths that they go in, are crooked: they haste after vain things, and shall perish. Consider the paths of Theman, and the ways of Saba, wherein they have put their trust. Confounded are they, that put any confidence in them: For when they came to obtain the things they looked for, they were brought to confusion.
      Even so are ye also come unto me: but now that ye see my misery, ye are afraid. Did I desire you, to come hither? Or, to give me any of your substance? To deliver me from the enemies hand, or to save me from the power of the mighty? Teach me and I will hold my tongue: and if I do error, show me wherein.
      Wherefore blame ye the words, that are well and truly spoken? which of you can reprove them? Saving only that ye are subtle to check mens sayings, and can speak many words in the wind. Ye fall upon the fatherless, and go about to overthrow your own friend. Wherefore look not only upon me, but upon yourselves: whether I lie, or no. Turn into your own selves ( I pray you ) be indifferent judges, and consider mine unguiltiness: whether there be any unrighteousness in my tongue, or vain words in my mouth

JOB Chpt 39

Knowest thou the time when the wild goats bring forth their young amongst the stoney rocks? Or layest thou wait when the hinds use to fawn? reckonest thou the months after they engender, that thou knowest the time of their bearing? or when they lay down when they cast their young ones, and when they are deliver of their travail and pain? How their young ones grow up and wax great through good feeding? who letteth the wild ass go free, or who looseth the bonds of the mule? Unto whom have I given the wilderness to be their house, and the untilled land to be their dwelling place. That they may give no force for the multitude of people in the cities, neither regard the crying of the driver: but seek their pasture about the mountains and follow the green grass. Will the unicorn be so tame as to do that service, or abide still by thy crib? Canst thou bind the yoke about him in thy furrows, to make him plow after thee in the valleys? Mayest thou trust him ( because he is strong ) or commit thy labor unto him? Mayest thou believe him, that he will bring home the corn, or carry anything unto the barn? The Ostrich ( whose feathers are fairer than the wings of a sparrow hawk ) when he hath layed his eggs upon the ground, he *bredeth them in the dust, and forgetteth them: so that they might be trodden upon with feet, or broken with some wild beast. So hard is he to his young ones, as though they were not his, and laboureth in vain without any fear. And that because God hath taken wisdom from him, and hath not given him understanding. When his time is, he flyeth up on high, and careth neither for horse nor man

ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 10

Wherefore the Lord sayeth: As soon as I have performed my whole work upon the hill of Sion and Jerusalem, then will I also visit the noble and stout king of Assiria, with his wisdom and pride. For he standeth thus in his own conceit: This do I through the power of my own hand, and through my wisdom: For I am wise, I am he that remove the lands of the people, I rob their princes: and ( like one of the worthies) I drive them from their high seats. My hand hath found out the Hosts of the people, as it were a nest. And like as eggs, that were layed here and there, are gathered together: So do I gather all countries. And there is no man, that dare be so bold, as to touch a feather, that dare open his mouth, or once whisper

ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 59

Behold, the Lords hand is not so shortened that it cannot help, neither is his ear so stopped that it may not hear. But your misdeeds have separated you from your God, and your sins hide his face from you, that he heareth you not. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with unrighteousness: Your lips speak leasings, and your tongue setteth out wickedness. No man regardeth righteousness, and no man judgeth truly. Every man hopeth in vain things, and imagineth deceit, conceiveth weariness, and bringeth forth evil. They breed cockatrice eggs, and weave the spiders web. Whoso eateth of their eggs dieth. But if one treadeth upon them. there cometh up a serpent. Their web maketh no cloth and they may not cover themselves with their labors. Their deeds are the deeds of wickedness, and the work of robbery is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make hast to shed innocent blood. Their counsels are wicked counsels, harm and destruction are in their ways. But the way of peace they know not. In their goings is there no equity, their ways are so *crocked that whosoever goeth therin, knoweth nothing of peace.
      And this is the cause that equity is so far from us, and the righteousness cometh not nye us. We look for light, lo, it is darkness: for the morning shine, see, we walk in the dark. We grope like the blind upon the wall, we grope even as one that hath none eyes. We stumble at the noon day, as though it were toward night: in the falling places, like men that are half dead. We roar all like Bears, and mourn still like doves. We look for equity, but there is none: for health, but it is far from us. For our offenses are many before thee, and our sins testify against us. Yee we must confess that we offend, and knowledge that we do amiss: Namely transgress and disassemble against the Lord, and fall away from our God: using presumptuous and traitorous imaginations, and casting false matters in our hearts. And therefore is equity gone aside, and righteousness standeth far off: truth is fallen down in the street, and the thing that is plain and open, may not be showed. Yee the truth is laid in prison, and he that refraineth him self from evil, must be spoiled.
      When the Lord saw this, it displeased him sore, that there was no where any equity. He saw also, that there was no man, which had pity thereof, or was grieved at it. And he held him by his own power, and cleaved to his own righteousness. He put righteousness upon him for a breast plate, and a fiery helmet of health upon his head. He put on wrath in stead of clothing, and took jealousy about him for a cloak: ( like as when a man goeth forth wrothfully to recompense his enemies, and to be avenged of his adversaries. ) Namely, that he might recompense and reward the Islands where through the name of the Lord might be feared, from the rising Sun: and his majesty, unto the going down of the same.
      For he shall come as a violent water stream, which the wind of the Lord hath moved. But unto Sion there shall come a redeemer, and unto them in Jacob that turn from wickedness, sayeth the Lord. I will make this covenant with them, ( saith the Lord): My spirit that is come upon thee, and the words which I have put in thy mouth, shall never go out of thy mouth, nor out the mouth of thy childrens children, from this time forth for evermore

TOBIAH or TOBIE Chpt 11

  So the blind father arose, and began to run, and stumbled with his feet, and gave his servant his hand, ran to meet his son, received him and kissed him, he and his wife, and began to weep for joy.
      Now when they had worshiped and thanked God, they sat down. Then took Tobiah of the fishs gall, and anointed his fathers eyes: and tarried half an hour, and then began the blemish to go out of his eyes, like as it had been the white skin of an egg: which Tobiah took, and drew from his eyes, and immediately he received his sight.
      Then they praised God, he and his wife, and all they that knew him. And Tobiah said: O' Lord God of Israel, I give thee praise and thanks, for thou hast chastened me, and made me whole. And lo, now do I see my son Tobiah. After seven days came Sara his sons wife also whole and sound with all the household and cattle, with camels and much money of his wives, and with the money that he had received of Gabelius: and he told his father and his mother all the benefits, which God had done for him, by the man that led him. Achior also and Nabath Tobiah sister sons came, and were glad, and rejoiced with him, by reason of all good that God had showed unto him. And so for that space of seven days they made merry, and were joyful every each one
