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 on the face of it ...
even the face of the world of the worldly ...
and there were two manners and measures of weights and balances ...
and there was one weight for the rich and the merchants ...
and another heavy weight for the people ...
and there was one balance for the rich and merchants ...
and another balance that was tipped against the people ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THIRD BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 19
Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgement neither in meteyard, weight or measure. But ye shall have true balances, true weights, A true Epha and a true hin. I am the Lord your God which brought you out of the land of Egypt, that ye should observe all mine ordinances and judgments and that ye should keep them: I am the Lord
FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 25
Thou shalt not have in thy bag two manner weights, a great and a small: neither shalt thou have in thine house diverse measures, a great and a small. But thou shalt have a perfect and a just measure: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. For all that do such things and all that do unright, are abomination unto the Lord thy God. Remember what Amalech did unto thee by the way after thou camest out of Egypt, he met thee by the way and smote the hindmost of you, all that were over labored and dragged behind, when thou wast fainted and weary, and he feared not God. Therefore when the Lord thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee to inherit and possess: see that thou put out the name of Amalech from under heaven, and forget not
THE PSALMS Chpt 62
How long will ye imagine mischief against every man? ye shall be slain all of the sort of you: yee as a tottering wall shall ye be, and like a broken hedge. Their devise is only to put him out, their delight is in lies: they give good words with their mouth, but curse with their heart. Selah.
Nevertheless, my soul abideth only upon God, for he is my God.
He only is my strength, my salvation, my defense: so that I shall not fall.
In God is my health, my glory, my might and in God is my trust.
O' put your trust in him always, ( ye people ) pour out your hearts before him, for God is our hope. Selah.
As for men they are but vain, men are deceitful: upon the weights they are altogether lighter than vanity it self. O' trust not in wrong or robbery, give not yourselves unto vanity: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
God spake once a word, twice have I heard the same, that power belongeth unto God.
That thou Lord art merciful, and that thou rewardest every man according to his works
THE PROVERBS Chpt 16
A true measure and a true balance are the Lords, he maketh all weights.
It is an great abomination when kings are wicked, for a kings seat should be holden up with righteousness.
THE PROVERBS Chpt 20
Who can say: my heart is clean, I am innocent from sin?
To use two manners of weights, or two manners of measures, both these are abominable unto the Lord.
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 28
Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunken *Ephraimites, and to the fading flower, to the glory of his pomp, that is upon the top of the plentious valley: which men be overladen with wine. Behold, the strength and power of the Lord shall break into the land on every side, like a tempest of hail, that beareth down strongholds, and like an horrible, mighty and overflowing water. And the proud crown of the drunken Ephraimites, shall be trodden under foot. And as the fading flower, which is upon the top of the plentious valley: it shall happen unto him, as to an untimely fruit before the harvest come. Which as soon as it is seen, is by and by devoured, or ever it come well in a mans hand.
And then shall the Lord of Hosts be a joyful crown, and a glorious garland unto the remnant of his people. Unto the lowly, he shall be a spirit of Judgement, and unto them that drive away the enemies from the gates, he shall be a spirit of strength. But they go wrong by the reason of wine, they fall and *stacker because of strong drink. Yee even the priests and prophets themselves go amiss, they are drunken with wine, and weak brained through strong drink. They error in seeing, and in judgement they fail. for all tables are so full of vomit and filthiness, that no place is clean. What is he among them, that can teach, instruct or inform the children, which are weened from suck or taken from the breasts: of any other fashion then: Command that may be commanded, bid that may be bidden, forbid that may be forbidden, keep back that may be kept back, here a little there a little. And therefore the Lord also shall speak with lisping lips and with a strange language unto this people, to whom he spake afore of this manner: This shall bring rest, if one refresh the weary, yee this shall bring rest. But they had no will to hear. And therefore the Lord shall answer their stubbornness. Command that may be commanded, bid that my be bidden, forbid that may be forbidden, keep back that may be kept back, here a little there a little. That they may go forth, fall backward, be bruised, snared, and taken. Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye mockers that rule the Lords people, which is at Jerusalem. For ye comfort yourselves thus: Tush, death and we are at point, and as for hell, we have made a condition with it, that though it break out any sore plague, it shall not come upon us. For with deceit we shall escape, and with nimbleness we will defend ourselves. Therefore saith the Lord God: Behold, I will lay a stone in Sion, a great stone, a costly corner stone, for a sure foundation: that who so putteth his trust in him, shall not be confounded. Righteousness will I set up again in the balance, and judgement in the weights. The tempest of hail shall take away your refuge, that ye have to deceive withal: and the overflowing waters shall break down your strongholds of dissimulation. Thus the appointment you have made with death, shall be done away: and the condition that ye made with hell, shall not stand. When the great destruction goeth through, it shall all to tread you. It shall take you quiet away before it. For it shall go forth early in the morning, and continue only that day and that night. And the very fear only shall teach you, when ye hear it. For the bed shall be so narrow that a man can not lie upon it: And the covering to small, that a man may not wind himself therin. For the Lord shall step forth as he did upon the mount Perazim, and take on as he did upon the dale of Gabaon: that he may bring forth his device, his strange device: and fulfill his work, his wonderful work. And therefore make no mocks at it, that your captivity increase not: for I have heard the Lord God of Hosts say, that there shall come a sudden destruction and plague upon the whole earth. Take heed, and hear my voice, ponder and *mark my words well. Goeth not the houseband man ever in due season earnestly to his land? He moweth and ploweth his ground to sow. And when he hath made it plain, he soweth it with *fetches or *comin. He soweth the wheat and Barley in their place, Milium and Rye also in their place. And that he may do it right, his God teacheth him and showeth him. For he treadeth not the fitches out with a *wane, neither bringeth he the cart here and there over the comin, but he thresheth the fitches out with a flayle, and the comin with a rod. As for the wheat, he grindeth it to make bread thereof, In as much as he can not bring it to pass with treading out. For neither the bruising that the cart wheels make, ner his beasts can grind it. This and such like things come of the Lord of Hosts which is marvelous in counsel, and great in righteousness
*Ephraimites; the Hebrew : double ash heap , double fruitful, increased. RN
*stacker (stagger) *fetches (wheat like crop) or *comin (cumin like parsley)
*wane (farm wagon)
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
MICHEAS or MICHEAH Chpt 6
What acceptable thing shall I offer unto the Lord? shall I bow on my knee to the high God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, and calves of a year old? Hath the Lord a pleasure in many thousand rams, or innumerable streams of oil? Or shall I give my first born for my offenses, and the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? I will show thee, O man, what is good, and what the Lord requireth of thee: Namely, to do right, to have pleasure in loving kindness, to be lowly, and to walk with thy God: that thou mayest be called a city of the Lord, and that thy name may be righteousness. Hear ( O ye tribes ) who would else give you such warning? Should I not be displeased, for the unrighteous good in the houses of the wicked and because the measure he is minished? Or should I justify the false balances and the bag of deceitful weights, among those that be full of riches ungraciously gotten: where the city signs deal with falsehood, speak lies, and have deceitful tongues in their mouths?
Therefore I will take in hand to punish thee, and to make thee desolate because of thy sins. Thou shalt eat, and not have enough: yee thou shall bring thyself down. Thou shalt flee but not escape: and those that thou wouldest save, will I deliver to the sword. Thou shalt sow but not reap: thou shalt press out olives, but oil thou shall not have, to anoint thyself withal: thou shalt tread out sweet must, but shall drink no wine. Ye keep the ordinances of Amri, and all the customs of the house of Ahab: Ye follow their pleasures, therefore will I make thee waste, and cause thy inhabitors to be abhorred, O my people: and thus shalt thou bare thine own shame
