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 shown a woman foul of heart and soul and mind ...
and a threatening of harm to her self ...
even unto death ...
and that if she did not get what she wanted ...
and there was a small jump from death for herself ...to death for others...
and her mind became as murderous ...murder us ...
even as though mass murder ...
and a name was shown me...
and that over and over again until i rose up and wrote it down...
and the name was sandy duncan
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE FIRST BOOK OF KINGS Chpt 18
And at the last the word of the Lord came to Eliah the third year saying: go show thyself unto Ahab, that I may send rain upon the earth. And Eliah went to show himself unto Ahab, for there was a great famishment in Samaria. Wherefore Ahab called Abdiah the governor of his house: which Abdiah feared God greatly: insomuch that when Jezabel destroyed the Prophets of the Lord, he took an hundred of the Prophets and hid them, fifty in one cave and fifty in another, and provided bread and water for them. And Ahab said unto Abdiah: walk through the land, unto all fountains of water and unto all brooks, to see whether any grass may be found that we may save the horses and the Mules, that we destroy not the beasts. And they divided the land between them to walk through it. Ahab went one way by himself, and Abdiah went another by himself.
And it chanced as Abdiah went in the way, that Eliah met him. And Abdiah knew him and fell on his face and said: art not thou my Lord Eliah? And he said unto him: I am he. Go and tell Ahab that Eliah is here. And the other answered: what have I sinned, that thou wouldest deliver me unto the hand of Ahab, to slay me? As surely as the Lord thy God liveth there is no nation or kingdom, whither my Lord hath not sent, to seek thee. And when they said thou wast not there, he took an oath of the kingdom and nation, because he found thee not. And now thou sayest: go tell thy Lord, Eliah is here. And as soon as I am gone from thee, the spirit of the Lord shall carry thee away whither I shall not know: and then when I have gone and told Ahab, and then he cannot find thee, he shall slay me. And yet I thy servant have feared the Lord from my young age. Was it not told my lord, what I did, when Jezabel slew the Prophets of the Lord? how I hid an hundred of the Lords Prophets, fifty in one cave and as many in another, and provided them of bread and water? And yet now thou sayest, go show thy Lord, that Eliah is here, that he should slay me.
Then Eliah said: as truly as the Lord of hosts liveth, before whom I stand: I will show myself unto him this day. And thereupon Abdiah went to Ahab and told him. And Ahab went against Eliah. And when Ahab saw Eliah, he said unto him: art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he said: it is not I that trouble Israel, but thou and thy fathers house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord, and hast followed Baal. But now send and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel and the Prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the Prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat of Jezabels table. And Ahab sent for all the children of Israel, and gathered the Prophets unto mount Carmel.
And Eliah came unto all the people and said: why halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be very God, follow him: or if Baal be he follow him. And the people answered him not one word. Then said Eliah unto the people: I only remain of the Lords Prophets, and Baals Prophets are four hundred and fifty. Let two oxen be given us, and let them choose the one and cut him in pieces and lay him on wood, and put no fire under. And I will dress the other and put him on wood, and will put no fire under. And call ye on the name of your God, and I will call on the name of the Lord. And then the God that answereth by fire, he is the very God.
And all the people said: it is well spoken. Then said Eliah unto the Prophets of Baal, choose you an ox and dress him first (for ye are many) and call on the name of your God, but put no fire under. And they took the ox that was given them and dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning to noon saying: O Baal hear us. But there was no voice nor answer. And they leapt about the altar that they had made. And at noon Eliah mocked them and said: call loud (for he is a God: but he is talking, or occupied, or in the way, or haply he sleepeth) that he may awake. And they cried loud, and cut themselves, as their manner was, with knives and lances, till the blood flowed on them. And when midday was passed, they prophesied until it was time to offer. But there was neither voice nor answer nor any that regarded them.
Then Eliah said to all the folk: come to me. And all the people came to him. And he mended the altar of the Lord that was broken. And he took twelve stones according to the number of the twelve tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the Lord came saying: Israel shall be thy name. And with the stones he made an altar in the name of the Lord. And he made a gutter round about the altar, able to receive two pecks of corn. And he put the wood in order, and hewed the ox in pieces, and put him on the wood, and said: fill four pitchers with water and pour it on the sacrifice and on the wood. And he said: do so again. And they did so again. Then he said: do it the third time. And they did so the third time. And the water ran round about the altar, and the gutter was full of water also.
And when offering time was come, Eliah the prophet went to and said: Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and of Israel, let it be known this day, that thou art the God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I do all these things at thy commandment. Hear me O' Lord, hear me, that this people may know, that thou Lord, art the God, and that thou hast turned their hearts backward. And there fell fire from the Lord and consumed the sacrifice and the wood and the stones and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the gutter. And when all the people saw that, they fell on their faces and said: the Lord he is God, the Lord he is God. Then said Eliah unto them, lay hands on the Prophets of Baal, let not one of them escape. And when they had taken them, Eliah brought them down unto the brook Kison, and slew them there.
Then Eliah said unto Ahab, get thee up and eat and drink, for there is a sound of much rain. And when Ahab went up to eat and to drink, Eliah went up to the top of mount Carmel. And bowed himself to the earth, and put his face between his knees, and said to his servant: go up and look toward the sea. And he went up and looked, and said: here is nothing. And he said go again seven times. And the seventh time he said: behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like the palm of a mans hand. Then he said: go and say to Ahab, put the horses in the chariot, and get thee down that the rain stop thee not. And within a little while, heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode and went to Jezrahel. And the hand of the Lord was on Eliah, and he girded up his loins and ran before Ahab, till they came to Jezrahel
THE FIRST BOOK OF KINGS Chpt 19
And Ahab told Jezabel, all that Eliah had done, and altogether how he had slain the Prophets with the sword. Then Jezabel sent a messenger unto Eliah saying: so do God to me and so thereto, except I make thy soul like one of theirs, by tomorrow this time: when he saw that, he arose and went for his life, and came to Bersabe in Juda, and left his lad there. And he went a days Journey into the wilderness, and when he was come sat down under a Juniper tree, and desired for his soul, that he might die, and said, it is now enough O' Lord, take my soul, for I am not better than my fathers.
And as he lay and slept under the Juniper tree: behold, there came an Angel and touched him, and said unto him: up and eat. And he looked about him: and see, there was a loaf of broiled bread and a cruse of water at his head. And he ate and drank and laid him down again to sleep. And the Angel of the Lord came again the second time and touched him, and said: up and eat, for thou hast a long Journey to go. And he arose and did eat and drink and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights, unto Horeb the mount of God, and entered there into a cave and lodged there all night.
And then the word of the Lord came to him and said what doest thou here, Eliah?And he answered: I have been thorough angry for the Lord God of Hosts sake. For the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, and have broken down thine altars and slain the Prophets with the sword, and I only am left, and they seek my soul to have it too. And he said come out and stand before the Lord. And behold, the Lord went by and a mighty strong wind that rent the mountains and brake the rocks before him. But the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind came an earthquake. But the Lord was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake, came fire: but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire, came a small still voice. And when Eliah heard it, he covered his face with his mantle, and went out and stood in the mouth of the cave. And see, there came a voice unto him and said: what doest thou here Eliah? And he answered: I was jealous for the Lord God of Hosts sake: because the children of Israel have forsaken thine appointment and have cast down thine altars and slain thy prophets with the sword, and I only am left, and they seek my soul to have it. Then the Lord said unto him: go and turn thy way to the wilderness of Damasco, and go and anoint Hazael to be king of Siria. And Jehu the son of Namsi, anoint to be king over Israel. And Eliseus the son of Saphat of Abel Mehulah anoint to be Prophet in thy room. And whoso escapeth the sword of Hazael, him shall Jehu slay: and if any man escape the sword of Jehu, him shall Eliseus slay. And thereto I have left me seven thousand in Israel, of which never man bowed his knees unto Baal nor kissed him with his mouth.
And he departed thence and found Eliseus the son of Saphat ploughing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelve. And Eliah went to him and cast his mantle upon him. And he left the oxen and ran after Eliah and said: let me I pray thee, kiss my father and mother, and then I will follow thee. And he said to him: go back again, for what have I done to thee? And he went back again from after him, and took a yoke of oxen and slew them, and dressed the flesh with the instruments of the oxen and gave it the people, and they did eat. And then he arose and went after Eliah and ministered unto him
THE FIRST BOOK OF KINGS Chpt 21
After these things were done, it chanced that Naboth the Jezrahelite had a vineyard in Jezrahel hard by the palace of Ahab king of Samaria. And Ahab spake unto Naboth saying: let me have thy vineyard, to make me a garden of herbs thereof, because it lieth so nigh my house: and I will give thee a better vineyard for it: or if it please thee I will give thee, the worth of it in silver. But Naboth said to Ahab: the Lord forbid that from me, that I should give the inheritance of my fathers unto thee.
Then went Ahab unto his house wayward and evil apaid, because of the words which Naboth the Jezrahelite had spoken unto him saying: I will not give to thee, the inheritance of my fathers. And he laid him down upon his bed and turned away his face, and would eat no meat. And when Jezabel his wife came to him, and said unto him: why art thou so froward, that thou eatest no meat? And he said unto her, I spake unto Naboth the Jazrahelite, and said unto him: give me thy vineyard for silver, or else if thou wilt, I will give thee another vineyard for it. And he said: I will not give thee my vineyard.
Then said Jezabel his wife unto him: what a goodly kingdom were thou able to make in Israel? up and eat meat and set thine heart at rest, for I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezrahelite. And she wrote a letter in Ahabs name and sealed it with his seal, and sent it unto the elders and chief men of his city that dwelt where Naboth dwelt. And she wrote in the letter saying: proclaim fasting and set Naboth on high among the people, and set two unthriftes before him, and let them testify against him saying: thou didst curse both God and the king. And upon that carry him out and stone him to death.
And the elders and nobles of his city, which dwelt in his city, did as Jezabel had sent unto them, and as it was written in the letter which she had sent unto them. They proclaimed fasting, and set Naboth on high among the people, and there came in two unthrifty persons and sat before him. And the two unthrifty persons witnessed against Naboth before the people saying: Naboth did curse God and the king. And upon that they carried him out of the city and stoned him with stones to death. And then they sent to Jezabel saying: Naboth is stoned to death. And when Jezabel heard that Naboth was stoned to death: she said to Ahab: up and take possession of the vineyard of Naboth, the Jezrahelite, which he denied to give thee for silver, for Naboth is not alive, but dead. And when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead. He stood up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezrahelite, to take possession of it.
And the word of the Lord came unto Eliah the Thesbite saying: up and go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, which is in Samaria. Behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth: for he is gone down thither, to take possession of it. And say unto him: thus saith the Lord, thou hast killed and thereto gotten possession. And say moreover unto him, thus saith the Lord: in the place where dogs lapped the blood of Naboth, shall dogs lap even thy blood also. And Ahab said to Eliah: hast thou found me thine enemy at any time? And he said yea, because thou art utterly given to work wickedness in the sight of the Lord. Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will make clean riddance of thee, and will destroy unto Ahab all that pisseth against the wall, and if ought be prisoned or forsaken in Israel: and will make thine house, like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nabat, and like the house of Baasa the son of Ahiah, for the angering wherewith thou hast angered and made Israel sin.
And thereto against Jezabel came the word of the Lord saying: dogs shall eat Jezabel, under the walls of Jezrahel. And he that dieth of Ahab in the town, him shall dogs eat: and he that dieth in the fields, him shall the fowls of the air eat. For there was none at all like Ahab, that was so utterly given to work wickedness in the sight of the Lord, and that because Jezabel his wife pricked him forward. And therefore he did exceeding abominably, in following Idols, in all things like as did the Amorites which the Lord cast out before the children of Israel.
When Ahab heard those words, he rent his clothes and put sack cloth about his flesh and fasted, and lay in sack and went comfortless. And the word of the Lord came to Eliah the Thesbite saying: seest thou how Ahab humbleth himself before me? because he so submitteth himself before me, I will not bring that evil in his days: but in his sons days, I will bring evil upon his house
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 3
Every man can *eschue a person moved to anger, for what he doth wisely? Even so shall the Lord of Hosts take away from Jerusalem and from Juda, all possessions and power, all meat and drink, the captain and the soldier, the judge and the prophet, the wise and the aged man, the worshipful of fifty year old, and the honorable: the Senators, and the men of understanding: the masters of crafts and orators. And I shall give you children to be your princes,( sayeth the Lord ) and babes shall have the rule of you. One shall ever be doing violence and wrong to another. The boy will presume against the elder, and the vile person against the honorable. Ye when one shall take a friend of his own kindred by the bosom, and say: Thou hast clothing, thou shalt be our head, for thou mayest keep us from this fall and peril.
Then shall he swear and say: I can not help you. Moreover, there is neither meat nor clothing in my house, make me no ruler of the people. For Jerusalem and Juda must decay, because both their words and counsel are against the Lord, they provoke the presence of his Majesty unto anger. The changing of their countenance betrayeth them, yee they declare their own sins themselves, as the Sodomites, and hide them not. Woe be unto their souls, for they shall be heavily rewarded. Then shall they say: O happy are the godly, for they may enjoy the fruits of their studies. But woe be unto the ungodly and unrighteous for they shall be rewarded after their works. O my people, *ribaudes oppress thee, and women have rule of thee. O my people, thy leaders deceive thee, and tread out the way of thy footsteps. The Lord is here to commune of the matter, and standeth to give judgement with the people. The Lord shall come forth to reason with the Senators and princes of his people, and shall say thus unto them: It is ye that have burnt up my vineyard, the robbery of the poor is in your house. Wherefore do ye oppress my people, and marred the faces of the innocents? thus shall the Lord God of Hosts revile them.
Moreover thus sayeth the Lord: Seeing the daughters of Sion are become so proud, and come in with stretched out necks, and with vain wanton eyes: seeing they come in tripping so nicely with their feet: Therefore shall the Lord shave the heads of the daughters of Sion, and make their beauty bare in the day. In that day shall the Lord take away the gorgeousness of their apparel, and spangles, chains, *partlets, and collars, bracelets and hooves, that goodly flowered wide and boarded raiment, brushes and head bands, rings and garlands, holy day clothes and veils, kerchiefs and pins, glasses and smocks, bonnets and *taches
And instead of good smell there shall be stink among them. And for their girdles there shall be loose bands. And for well set hair there shall be baldness. Instead of a stomacher, a sackcloth, and for their beauty witherdness and *son burning. Their husbands and their mighty men shall perish with the sword in battle.
*eschue (avoid, escape) *ribaudes ( extortioners :MN). *partlets = ruffled covering for the neck. *taches = buckles, clasps, fasteners. *son burning exactly as recorded
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 18
And after that, I saw another Angel come from heaven, having great power, and the earth was lightened with his brightness. And he cried mightily with a strong voice saying: Great Babylon is fallen, is fallen: and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of all foul spirits, and a cage of all unclean and hateful birds for all nations have drunken of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and her merchants are waxed rich of the abundance of her pleasures.
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.
And the apples that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee. And all things which were dainty, and had in price are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more. The merchants of these things which were waxed rich, shall stand afar off from her, for fear of the punishment of her, weeping and wailing, and saying: Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in raynes, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stone, and pearls: for at one hour so great riches is come to nought.
And every ship governor, and all they that occupied ships, and shipmen which work in the sea, stood afar off, and cried, when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying: what city is like unto this great city? And they cast dust on their heads, and cried weeping, and wailing, and said: Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea, by the reason of her costliness, for at one hour is she made desolate.
Rejoice over her thou heaven, and ye holy Apostles and Prophets: for God hath given your judgement on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying: with such violence shall that great city Babylon be cast, and shall be found no more. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more in thee: and no crafts man, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee. And the sound of a mill shall be heard no more in thee, and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride, shall be heard no more in thee, for thy merchants were the great men of the earth. And with thine enchantment were deceived all nations: and in her was found the blood of the Prophets, and of the saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 2
And unto the messenger of the congregation of Thiatira write: This sayth the son of God, which has his eyes like unto a flame of fire, whose feet are like brass: I know thy works and thy love, service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy deeds, which are more at the last then at the first. Not withstanding I have a few things against thee, that thou *sufferest that woman jezabel, which called herself a Prophetess, to teach and to deceive my servants, to make them commit fornication, and to eat meats offered up unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit fornication with her, into great adversity, except they turn from their deeds. And I will kill her children with death. And all the congregations shall know that I am he which searches the reins and hearts. And I will give unto everyone of you according to your works.
Unto you I say, and unto others of them of Thiatira, as many as have not this learning and which have not known the deepness of *Sathan (as they say). I will put upon you none other burden, but that which you have already. Hold fast until I come, and whosoever overcometh and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over nations, and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and as the vessels of a potter, shall he break them to shivers. Even as I received of my father, so will I give him the morning star. Let him that has ears, hear what the spirit says to the congregations
*Sathan (Satan); exact spelling. *sufferest (allow)
