And measures and matters of The Truth of the "time" we are in ...how "man" ..."thought to change time and times ...
Dearly beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, how that one day is with the Lord, as a thousand year, and a thousand year as one day.
The Lord is not slack to fulfil his promise, as some men count slackness: but is patient to us ward, and would have no man lost, but would receive all men to repentance.
Behold in a dread nightmare of the dark season ...of the times and time ..of the season of man ...see son of man ...
and i was taken and shown the world of the worldly ...
and the mouths of the many of the world of the worldly ...
and the many were very ...mouthy ...
and the thoughts and ...feelings ...and imaginations and fantasies stirred in the minds ...of the world of the worldly...
and out of their mouths poured a flood of unGodly speaking ...
and their mouths were all wet and dripping of the words of wickedness ...
even as it is written : And the dragon cast out of his mouth water after the woman as it had been a river, because she should have been caught of the flood.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 55
Come to the waters all yee, that be thirsty, and yee that have no money. Come, buy, that yee may have to eat. Come buy wine and milk, without any money, or money worth. Wherefore do ye lay out your money, for the thing that feedeth not, and spend your labor about the thing that satisfieth you not. But harken rather unto me, and yee shall eat of the best, and your soul shall have her pleasure in plenteousness. Incline your ears, and come unto me, take heed, and your soul shall live. For I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
Behold, I shall give him for a witness among the folk, for a Prince and Captain unto the people. Lo, thou shalt call an unknown people: and a people that had no knowledge of thee, shall run unto thee: because of the Lord thy God, the holy one of Israel, which glorifieth thee. Seek the Lord, while he may be found, and call upon him while he is nye. Let the ungodly man forsake his ways and the unrighteous his imaginations, and turn again unto the Lord: so shall he be merciful unto him: and to our God, for he is ready to forgive. For thus sayeth the Lord: my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways, but as far as the heavens are higher than the earth, so far do my ways exceed yours, and my thoughts yours. And like as the rain and snow cometh down from heaven, and returneth not thither again, but watereth the earth, maketh it fruitful and green, that it may give corn and bread unto the sower: So the word also that cometh out of my mouth shall not turn again void unto me, but shall accomplish my will and prosper the thing, whereto I send it. And so shall yee go forth with joy, and be lead with peace. The mountains and the hills shall sing with you for joy, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. For thorns, there shall grow, Fir trees, and that Myrtle tree instead of briers. And this shall be done to the praise of the Lord, and for an everlasting token, that shall not be taken away
Chpt 12 The Revelation of St John
And when the dragon saw, that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, times, and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And the dragon cast out of his mouth water after the woman as it had been a river, because she should have been caught of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed, up the river, which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman: and went and made war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. And I stood on the sea *stonde.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 4
As soon as the Lord had knowledge, how the Pharisees had heard, that Jesus made and baptised more disciples then John (though that Jesus him self baptised not: but his disciples) he left Jewry, and departed again in to Galile. And it was so that he must needs go through Samaria. Then came he to a city of Samaria called Sichar, besides the possession that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. And there was Jacobs well. Jesus then wearied in his journey, sat thus on the well. And it was about the sixth hour: and there came a woman of Samaria to draw water. And Jesus said unto her: give me drink. For his disciples were gone away unto the town to buy meat. Then said the woman of Samaria unto him: how is it, that thou being a Jewe, askest drink of me, which am a Samaritan? for the Jewes meddle not with the Samaritans. Jesus answered and said unto her: if thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that sayeth to thee give me drink, thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee water of life. The woman said unto him. Sir thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that water of life? Art thou greater then our father Jacob which gave us the well, and he himself drank thereof, and his children, and his cattle?
Jesus answered and said unto her: whosoever drinketh of this water, shall thirst again. But whosoever shall drink of the water that i shall give him, shall never be more a thirst: but the water that i shall give him, shall be in him a well of water, springing up into everlasting life. The woman said unto him: Sir give me of that water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. Jesus said unto her. Go and call thy husband, and come hither. The woman answered and said to him: I have no husband. Jesus said to her: Thou hast well said, I have no husband. For thou hast had five husbands, and he whom thou now hast, is not thy husband. That saidst thou truly.
The woman said unto him: Sir I perceive that thou art a Prophet. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain: and ye say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. Jesus said unto her: woman believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the father. Ye worship ye *wot not what: we know what we worship. For salvation cometh of the Jewes. But the hour cometh and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the father in spirit, and in truth. For verily such the father requireth to worship him. God is a spirit, and they that worship him, must worship him, in spirit and truth.
The woman said unto him: I *wot well Messias shall come, which is called Christ. When he is come, he will tell us all things: Jesus said unto her: I that speak unto thee am he. And even at that point came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman. Yet no man said unto him: what meanest thou, or why talkest thou with her? The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and said to the men. Come see a man which told me all things that ever I did. Is not he Christ? Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
And in the mean while his disciples prayed him saying: Master, eat. He said unto them: I have meat to eat, that ye know not of. Then said the disciples between themselves: hath any man brought him meat? Jesus said unto them: my meat is to do the will of him that sent me. And to finish his work. Say not ye: there are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? Behold I say unto you, lift up your eyes, and look on the regions: for they are white already unto harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth reward, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth, and he that reapeth might rejoice together. And herein is the saying true, that one soweth, and another reapeth. I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labor. Other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labors.
Many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him, for the saying of the woman, which testified: he told me all things that ever I did. Then when the Samaritans were come unto him they besought him, that he would tarry with them. And he abode there two days. And many more believed because of his own words, and said unto the woman: Now we believe not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is even indeed Christ the saviour of the world.
After two days he departed thence, and went away into Galile. And Jesus himself testified, that a Prophet hath none honour in his own country. Then as soon as he was come into Galile, the Galileans received him which had seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast. For they went also unto the feast day. And Jesus came again into Cana of Galile, where he turned water into wine.
And there was a certain ruler, whose son was sick at Capernaum. As soon as the same heard that Jesus was come out of Jewry into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him, that he would descend, and heal his son: For he was even ready to die. Then said Jesus unto him: except ye see signs and wonders, ye cannot believe. The ruler said unto him: Sir come away or ever that my child die. Jesus said unto him: Go thy way, thy son liveth. And the man believed the words that Jesus had spoken unto him, and went his way. And *anon as he went on his way, his servants met him, and told him saying: thy child liveth. Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him: Yesterday the seventh hour, the fever left him. And the father knew that it was the same hour in which Jesus said unto him: Thy son liveth. And he believed, and all his household. This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, after he was come out of Jewry into Galilee

JOB Chpt 24
Considering then that there is no time hid from the Almighty, how happeneth it, that they which know him, will not regard his days? For some men there be, that remove other mens landmarks: that rob them of their cattle, and keep the same for their own: that drive away the ass of the fatherless: that take the widows ox for a pledge: that thrust the poor out of the way, and oppress the simple of the world together. Behold, the wild asses in the desert go by times, as their manner is, to spoil: Yee the very wilderness ministereth food for their children. They reap the corn field that is not their own: and gather the grapes out of his vineyard, whom they have oppressed by violence. They are the cause that so many men are naked and bare, having no clothes to cover them and to keep them from the cold: So that when the showers in the mountains have rained upon them, and they be all wet, they have none other succour, but to keep them among the rocks.
They spoil the sucking fatherless children, and put the poor in prison: In so much that they let them go naked without clothing, and yet the hungry bear the sheaves. The poor are *faine to labor in their oil mills, yee and to tread in their wine presses, and yet to suffer thirst. The whole city crieth unto the Lord with sighing, the souls of the slayen make their complaint: But God destroyeth them not for all this, where as they ( notwithstanding ) are rebellious and disobedient enemies: which seek not his light and way, ner turn again in to his path. Timely in the morning do they arise, to murder the simple and poor, and in the night they go a stealing.
The eye of the ungodly is like the *advouterer, that waiteth for the darkness, and sayeth thus in him self: Tush, there shall no man see me, and so he disguiseth his face. In the night season they search the houses, and hide themselves in the day time, but will not know the light. For as soon as the day breaketh, the shadow of death cometh upon them, and they go in horrible darkness. The ungodly is very swift: O that his portion on earth were swifter than the running water, which suffereth not the shipman to behold the fair and pleasant vineyards. O that they ( for that wickedness which they have done ) were drawn into the hell, sooner than snow melteth with the heat. O that all compassion upon them were forgotten: that their dainties were worms, that they were clean put out of remembrance, and utterly hewn down like an unfruitful tree. For they maintain the barren, and make them that they cannot bare, and unto widows they do no good. They pluck down the mighty with their power, and when they themselves are gotten up, they are never without fear, as long as they live. And though they might be safe, yet they will not receive it, for their eyes look upon their own ways. They are exalted for a little, but shortly are they gone, brought to extreme poverty, and taken out of the way: yee and utterly plucked off, as the ears of corn. Is it not so? Who will then reprove me as a liar? and say that my words are nothing worth?
*faine (obliged) *advouterer: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; heart without devotion ...plain hearted to God. also see James 2 for adultery.
ST. PAUL TO THE ROMANS Chpt 1
For the wrath of God appeareth from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men which withhold the truth in unrighteousness: seeing, what may be known of God, that same is manifest among them. For God did show it unto them. So that his invisible things: that is to say, his eternal power and godhead, are understood and seen, by the works from the creation of the world. So that they are without excuse, in as much as when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful but waxed full of vanities in their imaginations, and their foolish hearts were blinded. When they counted themselves wise, they became fools and turned the glory of the immortal God, unto the similitude of the image of mortal man, and of birds, and fourfooted beasts, and of serpents. Wherefore God like wise gave them up unto their hearts lusts, unto uncleanness, to defile their own bodies between themselves: which turned his truth unto a lie, and worshipped and served the creatures more then the maker, which is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto shameful lusts. For even their women did change the natural use unto the unnatural. And likewise also the men left the natural use of the woman, and burned in their lusts one on another. And man with man wrought filthiness, and received in themselves the reward of their error, as it was according.
And as it seemed not good unto them to be a known of God, even so God delivered them up unto a lewd mind, that they should do those things which were not comely, being full of all unrighteous doing, of fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, evil conditioned, whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, doers of wrong, proud, boasters, bringers up of evil things, disobedient to father and mother, without understanding, covenant breakers, unloving, truce breakers and merciless. Which men though they knew the righteousness of God, how that they which commit such things, are worthy of death, yet not only do the same, but also have pleasure in them that do them.
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 17
As it happened in the time of Noe: So shall it be in the time of the son of man. They ate, they drank, they married wives and were married, even unto the same day that Noe went into the Ark: and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise also, as it chanced in the days of Lot. They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built. And even the same day that Lot went out of *Zodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. After these examples, shall it be in the day when the son of man shall appear.
At that day he that is on the house top and his stuff in the house: let him not come down to take it out. And likewise let not him that is in the fields, turn back again to that he left behind. Remember Lots wife. Whosoever will go about to save his life, shall lose it: And whosoever shall lose his life, shall save it. I tell you in that night, there shall be two in one bed, that one shall be received and the other shall be forsaken. Two shall be also a grinding together: the one shall be received, and the other forsaken. And they answered, and said unto him: where Lord? And he said unto them: wheresoever the body shall be, thither will the eagles resort.

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
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 5
Now will then, I will sing my beloved friend a song of his vineyard. My beloved friend hath a vineyard in a very fruitful plenteous ground. This he hedged, this he walled round about, and planted it with goodly grapes. In the midst of it builded he a tower, and made a wine press therin. And afterward when he looked that it should bring him grapes, it brought forth thorns. I show you now my cause ( O ye Citizens of Jerusalem and whole of Juda ) : Judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard. What more could have been done for it, that I have not done? Wherefore hath it given thorns, where I looked to have grapes of it?
Well, I shall tell you how I will do with my vineyard: I will take the hedge from it, that it may perish, and break down the wall, that it may be trodden under foot. I will lay it waste, that it shall neither be twisted nor cut, but bear thorns and briers. I will also forbid the clouds, that they shall not rain upon it. As for the vineyard of the Lord of Hosts it is the house of Israel, and whole Juda his fair planting. Of these he looked for equity, but see there is wrong: for righteousness, lo, It is but misery.
Woe unto you that join one house to another, and bring one land so nigh unto another, till ye can get no more ground. Will ye dwell upon the earth alone? The Lord of Hosts roundeth me thus in mine ear: shall not many greater and more gorgeous houses be so waste, that no man shall dwell in them? And ten acres of vines shall give but a Quart, and thirty bushels of feed shall give but three.
Woe unto them that rise up early to use themselves in drunkenness, and yet at night are more superfluous with wine. In those companies are harps and lutes, tabrets and pipes, and wine. But they regard not the work of the Lord, and consider not the operation of his hands. Therefore cometh my folk also in captivity, because they have no understanding. Their glory shall be mixed with hunger, and their pride shall be marred for thirst. Therefore gapeth hell, and openeth her mouth marvelous wide: that pride boasting and wisdom, with such as rejoice therin, may descend into it.
Thus shall man have a fall, he shall be brought low, and the high looks of the proud layed down. But the Lord of Hosts, that holy God: shall be exalted and untouched, when he shall declare his equity and righteousness after this manner: Then shall the lambs eat their appointed fodder, and shall feed plentiously in the mountains. Woe be unto vain persons, that draw wickedness unto them, as it were with a cord: and sin, as it were with a cart rope. Which use to speak on this manner: Let him make hast now, and go forth with his work, that we may see it. Let that counsel of the holy one of Israel come, and draw nye, that we may know it.
Woe be unto them that call evil good, and good evil: which make darkness light, and light darkness, that make sour sweet, and sweet sour.
Woe be unto them that are wise in their own sight, and think themselves to have understanding.
Woe be unto them that are conning men to sup out wine and expert to set up drunkenness. These give sentence with the ungodly for rewards, but condemn the just cause of the righteous.
Therefore like as the fire licketh up the straw, as the flame consumeth the stubble: Even so ( when their root is full ) their blossom shall vanish away as dust or smoke: for they despise the law of the Lord of Hosts, and blaspheme the word of the holy maker of Israel.
Therefore is the wrath of the Lord kindled also against his people, and he shaketh his hand at them: yee he shall smite so, that the hills shall tremble. And their carcasses shall lie in the open streets, like mire. After all this, the wrath of God shall not cease, but he shall stretch his hand wider. And he shall give a token unto a strange people, and call unto them in a far country: and behold, they shall come hastily with speed. There is not one faint or feeble among them, no not a sluggish or slippery person. There shall not one of them put off the girdle from his loins, *ner loose the latchet of their shoe. Their arrows are sharp, and their bows bent. Their horses hoofs are like flint, and their cart wheels like a stormy wind. Their cry is as it were of a lion, and the roaring of them like lions whelps. They shall roar, and haunch up the prey, and no man shall recover it or get it from them. In that day they shall be fierce upon them, as the sea. And if we look unto the land, behold, it shall be all darkness and sorrow. If we look to heaven: behold, it shall be dark with careful desperation
There shall not one of them put off the girdle from his loins, Ephes 6:14 RN) *ner loose the latchet of their shoe
THE SECOND TO TIMOTHYE Chpt 3
This understand, that in the last days shall come parlous times. For the men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, cursed speakers, disobedient to father and mother, unthankful, unholy, unkind, trucebreakers, stubborn, false accusers, rioters, fierce despisers of them which are good, traitors, heady, high minded, greedy upon voluptuousness more then lovers of God, having a similitude of Godly living, but have denied the power thereof: and such abhor. Of this sort are they which enter into houses, and bring into bondage women laden with sin, which women are led of *diverse lusts, ever learning and never able to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
THE PROVERBS Chpt 17
The Lord hateth as well him that justifieth the ungodly, as him that condemeth the innocent.
