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 a man...
and the man loved God his father and Jesus his brother and Lord.
and that in spirit and truth.
and the man was in the world of the worldly ...
even in the fields thereof ...
and it was the time ...
even the time of the harvest.
and there were two fields to harvest ...
and the man went to the first field...
and it was an unworthy wretched filthy field.
and the rulers over and farmers of the wretched filthy field were unGodly and care less (could not care less).
and all of all that labored there ...labored in vain.
and that for the crops ...the fruit ...the harvest of the field was all unclean.
even filthy ...full of dirt ...and contaminated with dung.
and again ...again...the unGodly rules and rulers and farmers would not have the harvest of the field...washed clean.
Yet only looked to the gain and profit and extortion of the harvest ...
and the man LEFT...that field and went to the next ...field of harvest.
and he was invited in ...into the office of the owner...
and the appearing man looked and the office was clean.
and the door to the harvest was kept shut...that nothing unworthy enter in.
and opened only to those who would work on the harvest.
and the man looked and the owner was an aged man ...with hair of whiteness.
even like an ancient of days ...
and the ancient of days greeted the appearing man warmly.
and said welcome to the harvest.
and some who worked on the harvest ...thought "what can this man do that we have not done?"
nevertheless the ancient of days had the appearing man look to the power of the place of the harvest.
and the appearing found a place ...within ...within the harvest where the power had been shut off ...
and the ancient of days said what would you do ?
and the appearing man said ...i would go out into the harvest ...
and that to find the problem...where the power of the harvest is shut off.
and then to check for the safety of any and all who are working in the harvest...
and to reconnect to the power of the harvest.
even that the harvest can go forward...
and be finished.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE GOSPELL OF ST. MATTHEW Chpt 13
Then sent Jesus the people away, and came home. And his disciples came unto him, saying: declare unto us the similitude of the tares in the field. Then answered he and said to them. He that soweth the good seed, is the son of man. And the field is the world. And the children of the kingdom, they are the good seed. And the tares are the children of the wicked. And the enemy that soweth them, is the devil. the harvest is the end of the world. And the reapers be the Angels. For even as the tares are gathered and burnt in the fire: so shall it be in the end of this world. The son of man shall send forth his Angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity, and shall cast them into a furnace of fire. There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the just men shine as bright as the *son in the kingdom of their father. Whosoever hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Again the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in the field, which a man findeth and hideth: and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
Again the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant that seeketh good pearls, which when he had found one precious pearl, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
Again the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net cast into the sea, that gathereth of all kinds of fishes: which when it is full, men draw to land, and sit and gather the good into vessels, and cast the bad away. So shall it be at the end of the world. The Angels shall come out and sever the bad from the good, and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Jesus said unto them: Understand ye all these things? They said, ye Lord. Then said he unto them: Therefore every Scribe which is taught unto the kingdom of heaven is like an householder, which bringeth forth, out of his treasure, things both new and old.
And it came to pass when Jesus had finished these similitudes, that he departed thence, and came in to his own country, and taught them in their synagogues, in so much that they were astonied and said: whence cometh all this wisdom and power unto him? Is not this the Carpenters son? Is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren be called James and Joses and Simon and Judas? And are not his sisters all here with us? Whence hath he all these things. And they were offended by him. Then Jesus said to them, a Prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and among his own kin. And he did not many miracles there, for their unbeliefs sake
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 29
Woe be unto thee O Ariel, thou city that David won. Take yet some years, and let some feasts pass over: then shall Ariel be besieged, so that she shall be heavy and sorrowful, and shall be unto me even as a lion. For I will lay siege to thee round about, and keep thee in with towers, and grave up dikes against thee. And thou shalt be brought low, and speak out of the earth, and thy words shall go humbly out of the ground. Thy voice shall come out of the earth, like the voice of a witch, and thy talking shall groan out of the mire. For the multitude of thine enemies shall be like meal dust. And the number of Tyrants shall be as the dust that the wind taketh away suddenly. Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of Hosts with thunder, earthquake, and with a great crack, with the whistle wind, tempest, and the flame of a consuming fire. But now the multitude of all the people, that went out against Ariel: the whole host, the strongholds, and siege: is like a dream which appeareth at night. It is like when an hungry man dreameth that he is eating, and when he awaketh, he hath nothing: like as when a thirsty man dreameth that he is drinking, and when he awaketh he is faint, and his soul unpatient.
So is the multitude of all the people that muster themselves against the hill of Sion. But ye shall be at your wits end, ye shall be abashed: ye shall stagger, and reel to and fro.
Ye shall be drunken, but not of wine. Ye shall fall, but not through drunkenness: For the Lord shall give you an hard sleeping spirit, and hold down your eyes: namely your Prophets and heads which should see, them shall he cover. And all visions shall be unto you, as the words that stand in a sealed letter, when one offereth it to a man that is learned, and sayeth: read us this letter. Then he answereth: I can not read it, for it is shut. But if it be given to one that is not learned, or say unto him: read this letter: Then sayeth he I can not read.
Therefore thus sayeth the Lord: For so much as this people draweth near me with their mouth, and praiseth me highly with their lips, where as their heart nevertheless is far from me, and the fear which they owe unto me, that turn they to mens laws and doctrines, therefore will I also show unto this people a marvelous, terrible, and great thing ( Namely this: ) I will destroy the wisdom of their wise, and the understanding of their learned men shall perish. Woe be unto them that seek so deep, to hide their imagination before the Lord, which rehearse their counsels in darkness, and say: who seeth us, or who knoweth us? Which imagination of yours is even as when the potters clay taketh advisement, as though the work might say to the workmaster : make me not, or as when an earthen vessel sayeth of the potter: he understandeth not. See ye not that it is hard by, that Libanus shall be turned in to Charmel, and that Charmel shall be taken as wood? Then shall the deaf man understand the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see without any cloud or darkness. The oppressed shall hold a merry feast in the Lord, and the poor shall rejoice in the holy one of Israel.
Then shall the furious people cease, and the mockers shall be put away, and all they that do wrong shall be plucked out, such as labor to draw men unto sin: and that deceive him, which reproveth them in the gate, and such as turn good persons to vanity. And therefore the Lord ( even the defender of Abraham ) sayeth thus unto the house of Jacob: Now shall not Jacob be ashamed, nor his face confounded, when he seeth among his children ( whom my hands have made ) such as hallow my name among them: that they may sanctify the holy one of Jacob, and fear the God of Israel. and that they which afore time were of an erroneous spirit, have now understanding, and that such as before could not speak, are now learned in my law.
THE FIRST TO THE THESSALONIANS Chpt 4
Furthermore we beseech you brethren, and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, that ye increase more and more, even as ye have received of us, how ye ought to walk and to please God. Ye remember what commandments we gave you in our Lord *Jesu Christ. For this is the will of God, even that ye should be holy, and that ye should abstain from fornication, that every one of you should know how to keep his vessel in holiness and honour, and not in the lust of *concupiscence, as do the heathen which know not God, that no man go too far and defraud his brother in bargaining: because the Lord is avenger of all such things, as we told you beforetime and testified. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness: but unto holiness. He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, which hath sent his holy spirit among you.
But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you. For ye are taught of God to love one another. Yes and that thing verily ye do unto all the brethren which are throughout all Macedonia. We beseech you brethren that ye increase more and more, and that ye study to be quiet, and to meddle with your own business and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you: that ye may behave your selves honestly toward them that are without, and that nothing be lacking unto you.
I would not brethren have you ignorant concerning them which are fallen asleep, that ye sorrow not as other do which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again: even so them also which sleep by Jesus, will God bring again with him. And this say we unto you in the word of the Lord, that we which live and are remaining in the coming of the Lord, shall not come *yer they which sleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout and the voice of the Archangel and trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ shall arise first: then shall we which live and remain, be caught up with them also in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. And so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort yourselves one another with these words.
*concupiscence: strong desire; lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, pride of goods.
*Jesu: Hebrew for Jesus *yer (before)
AHUM or NAUM Chpt 3
Woe to the blood thirsty city, which is all full of lies and robbery, and will not leave off of ravishing. There a man may hear scourging, rushing, the noise of the wheels, the crying of the horses, and the rolling of the chariots. There the horsemen get up with naked swords, and glittering spears: There layeth a multitude of slain, and a great heap of dead *coarses, yee men fall upon their bodies: And that for the great and many fold whoredom, of the fair and beautiful harlot: which is a mistress of witchcraft, yee and selleth the people through her whoredom, and the nations through her witchcraft.
THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 6
Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why rather suffer ye not wrong? why rather suffer ye not yourselves to be robbed? Nay, ye yourselves do wrong, and rob: and that the brethren. Do ye not remember how that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived. For neither fornicators, neither worshippers of images, neither whoremongers, neither weaklings, neither abusers of themselves with mankind, neither thieves, neither the covetous, neither drunkards, neither cursed speakers, neither *pillers, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were ye verily: but ye are washed: ye are sanctified: ye are justified by the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the spirit of our God.
*pillers: those that charge others excessively, as to pillage the people, what ever the market will bear.
TO THE GALATHIANS Chpt 5
I say walk in the spirit, and fulfil not the lusts of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth contrary to the spirit, and the spirit contrary to the flesh. These are contrary one to the other, so that ye cannot do that which ye would. But and if ye be led of the spirit, then are ye not under the law. The deeds of the flesh are manifest, which are these, *advoutry, fornication, uncleanness, wantonness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, zeal, wrath, strife, sedition, sects, envying, murder, drunkenness, gluttony, and suchlike of the which I tell you before as I have told you in time past, that they which commit such things, shall not inherit, the kingdom of God. But the fruit of spirit is, love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, temperance. Against such there is no law. They that are Christs, have crucified the flesh with the appetites and lusts.
If we live in the spirit, let us walk in the spirit. Let us not be vain glorious, provoking one another, and envying one another.
*advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God, being devoted to something or some one else. see James 2 for adultery
THE SECOND BOOK OF CHRONICLES Chpt 33
Manasseh was twelve years old when he was made king, and reigned fifty five years in Jerusalem. And he did wickedly in the sight of the Lord, like unto the abominations of the heathen which the Lord cast out before the children of Israel. For he went to and built again the hillaltars which Hezekiah his father had broken down. And he reared up altars unto Baals and made groves and bowed himself unto all the host of heaven and served them. And he built altars in the house of the Lord: of which the Lord hath said in Jerusalem shall my name be for ever. And he made altars unto all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the Lord. And he burnt his children in fire in the valley of the sons of Hennon. And he observed dismal days and occupied witchcraft and sorcery, and maintained workers with spirits and sears of fortunes: and wrought much evil in the sight of the Lord, to anger him withal
HOSEA or OSEAS Chpt 8
Ephraim giveth rewards to get lovers. Therefore are they scattered among the Heathen, There will I gather them up. They shall soon be weary of the burden of the king and princes. Ephraim hath made many altars to do wickedness, therefore shall the altars to his sin. Though I show them my law never so much, they count it as strange doctrine. Where as they do sacrifice, offering the flesh and eating it: The Lord will have no pleasure therein: but will remember their wickednesses, and punish their sins. Israel turneth again into Egypt, they have forgotten him that made them, they build churches, and Juda maketh many strong cities: therefore will I send a fire into their cities, and it shall consume their places
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 20
Then began he to put forth to the people this similitude. A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to farmers, and went him self into a strange country for a great season. And when the time was come, he sent a servant to his tenants that they should give him of the fruits of the vineyard. And the tenants did beat him, and sent him away empty. And again he sent yet another servant. And they did beat him, and foul entreated him also, and sent him away empty. Moreover, he sent the third too, and him they wounded, and cast out. Then said the lord of the vineyard: what shall I do? I will send my dear son, him peradventure they will reverence, when they see him.
But when the farmers saw him, they thought in themselves saying: this is the heir, come let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours. And they cast him out of the vineyard: and killed him. Now what shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them? He will come and destroy those farmers, and will let out his vineyard to other. When they heard that, they said: God forbid.
And he beheld them and said: what meaneth this then that is written: The stone that the builders refused, the same is made the head corner stone? Whosoever stumble at that stone shall be broken: but on whosoever it fall upon, it will grind him to powder. And the high priests and the scribes the same hour went about to lay hands on him, but they feared the people. For they perceived that he had spoken this similitude against them.
And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves perfect, to take him in his words, and to deliver him unto the power and authority of the debite. And they asked him saying: Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest right, neither considerest thou any mans degree, but teachest the way of God truly. Is it lawful for us to give Cesar tribute or no? He perceived their craftiness, and said unto them: why tempt ye me? Show me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said: Cesars. And he said unto them: Give then unto Cesar, that which belongeth unto Cesar: and to God that which pertaineth to God. And they could not reprove his saying before the people. But they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace
Joel Chpt 3
Behold therefore, I will raise them out of the place, where you have sold them, and will reward you even upon your head. Y our your sons and your daughters will I sell through the hands of the children of Juda, and so they shall give them forth to sell, unto them of Saba, a people of a far country: for the Lord himself has said it. Cry out these things among the Gentiles, proclaim war, wake up the giants, let them draw nye, let them come up all the lusty warriors of them. Make you swords of your plowshares, and spears of your sickles and scythes. Let the meek man say: Iam strong. Muster you, and come, all you Heathen round about: gather you together, there shall the Lord lay all your giants to the ground. Let the people arise, get them to the valley of Josaphat: for there will I sit, and judge all the Heathen round about. Lay to your scythes, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down: the wine press is full, yes the wine press run over, for their wickedness is waxen great.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 12
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
*stonde: two possible words come from the Middle English: stound: meaning "a short time" and stonen: meaning "stunned". stunned because of the vision.
and others of a similitude...
"lamps for the harvest..."
"the house and the harvest..."
"hangs on nothing ...and the harvest ..."
"The Harvest and the silo full of corn ..."
