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 show within ...within the dark dread city of shadows and things thought to be hidden ...
and the wretched squirming slithering place was filled with predation ...
and the sucking parasitic of any and all feeding on each other...
and any measure of any matter of the flesh was preyed upon ...without regard ...and without care ...care less lie ...
and any measure of any matter of the mind was preyed upon ...without regard ...and without care ...care less lie ...
and any measure of any matter of thesoul was preyed upon ...without regard ...and without care ...care less lie ...
and any measure of any matter of thespirit was preyed upon ...without regard ...and without care ...care less lie ...
and of the many ...thought they would get relief comforting the flesh in the lust of the eye ...lust of the flesh and pride of goods ...
Yet there was no rest or peace ...
and only the more squirming and squeezing and sneaking and subtle scheming to get more into and higher in the hot undulating mass of the flesh ...
and the scene changed and the seeing changed ...
and there appeared roving bears ...huge ...beastly ...and consuming ...
and they broke down doors and climbed on roofs ...
and prowled the streets and bushes and trees ...
and there seemed no way to escape the bears ...ripping and tearing ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
THE SECOND BOOK OF KINGS Chpt 2
And he went from thence up to Bethel. And as he was going up in the way, there came little lads out of the city and mocked him, and said to him: go up thou bald head, go up thou baldhead. And he turned back and looked on them and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came two Bears out of the wood and tare forty two of the boys. And he went from thence to mount Carmel, and from thence went again to Samaria
FIRST BOOK OF MOSES Chpt 6
There were tyrants in the world in those days. For after that the children of God had gone in unto the daughters of men, and had begotten them children, the same children were the mightiest of the world, and men of renown. And when the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was increased upon the earth, and that all the imagination and thoughts of his heart was only evil continually, he repented that he had made man upon the earth, and sorrowed in his heart. And said: I will destroy mankind which I have made, from off the face of the earth: both man, beast, worm and fowl of the air, for it repenteth me that I have made them. But yet Noe found grace in the sight of the Lord.
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

THE PROVERBS Chpt 17
One reproof only doeth more good to that hath understanding, than an hundred stripes into a fool.
A *sedicious person seeketh mischief, but a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
It were better to come against a she bear robbed of her whelps, then against a fool in his foolishness.
Whoso rewardeth evil for good, the plague shall not depart from his house.
He that soweth discord and strife, is like one that diggeth up a water brook: but an open enemy is like the water that breaketh out and runneth abroad.
The Lord hateth as well him that justifieth the ungodly, as him that condemeth the innocent.
What helpeth it to give a fool money in his hand, where as he hath no mind to buy wisdom?
He is a friend that always loveth, and in adversity a man shall know who is his brother.
Whom so promiseth by the hand, and is surety for another, he is a fool.
He that loveth strife, delighteth in sin: and he that setteth his door to high, seeketh after a fall.
Who so hath a froward heart obtaineth no good: and he that hath an *overthwart tongue, shall fall into mischief.
An unwise body bringeth himself in to sorrow, and the father of a fool can have no joy.
A merry heart maketh a lusty age, but a sorrowful mind drieth up the bones.
The ungodly taketh gifts out of the bosom, to *wreste the ways of judgment.
Wisdom shineth in the face of him that hath understanding, but the eyes of fools wander throughout all lands.
* sedition = disloyalty, treachery, labored strife, promotes rebellion (against godly ways) RN *overthwart = to impede, obstruct, prevent, frustrate. *wreste = from wrest meaning; to distort or twist the nature or meaning of
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 3
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 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 FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 11
Then saw I a dream: and behold, there came up from the sea an Eagle, which had twelve wings and three heads: And I saw, and behold, *he spread his wings over all the earth, and all the winds of the air blew in them, and so they were put together again. And I beheld, and out of his feathers there grew other little contrary feathers: the heads rested, the head in the midst was greater than the others, yet rested it with the residue.
Moreover I saw, that the eagle flew with his wings, and reigned upon the earth, and over all them that dwell upon the earth: and I saw that all things under heaven were subject unto him, and no man spoke against him, no not one creature upon the earth. I saw also that the Eagle stood up on his claws, and give a sound with his feathers, and a voice saying things after this manner: watch not all together, sleep every man in his own place, and watch for a time, but let the heads be preserved at the last. Nevertheless I saw, that the voice went not out of his heads, but from the midst of his body. And I numbered his contrary feathers, and behold there were eight of them. And I looked, and behold upon the right side there arose one feather, and reigned over all the earth. And it happened, that when it reigned, the end of it came, and the place thereof appeared no more. So the next following stood up, and reigned, and had a great time: and it happened, that when it reigned, the end of it came also, like as the first, so that it appeared no more.
Then came there a voice unto it, and said: Hear thou that hast kept in the earth so long, this I say unto thee, before thou beginest to appear no more: There shall none after thee attain unto thy time. Then arose the third, and reigned as the other afore, and appeared no more also. So went it with all the residue one after the other, so that every one reigned, and then appeared no more. Then I looked, and behold, in the process of time that the feathers that followed were set up upon the right side, that they might rule also: and some of them ruled, but within a while they appeared no more: for some of them were set up, but ruled not. After this I looked, and behold the twelve feathers appeared no more, and that two wings: and there were no more upon the Eagles body, but the two heads that rested, and six feathers. Then saw I also, that the six feathers were parted in two, and remained under the head, that was upon the right side, for the four continued in their place. So I looked, and behold, they that were under the wings, thought to set up themselves, and to have the rule. Then was there one set up, but shortly it appeared no more, and the second was sooner away than the first. And I beheld, and lo, the two thought also by themselves to reign: and when they so thought, behold there awaked one of the heads that were at rest, namely, it that was in the midst, for that was the greater of the two heads. And then I saw, that the two heads were filled with him and the head was turned with them that were by him, and eat up the two under wings , that would have reigned.
But this head put the whole earth in fear, and bare rule in it, over all those that dwelt upon the earth with much labor, and he had the governance of the world, over all the fowls that have been. After this I looked , and behold, the head that was in the midst, suddenly appeared no more, like as the wings: then came the two heads, which ruled upon the earth, and over those that dwelt therein. And I beheld, and lo the head upon the right side, devoured it that was upon the left side. And I heard a voice, which said unto me: look before thee, and consider the thing that thou seest. Then I saw, and behold, as it were a lion that roareth, running hastily out of the wood, and he sent out a mans voice unto the Eagle, and said: Hear thou, I will talk with thee, and the Highest shall say unto thee: Is it not thou that hast the victory of the four beasts, whom I made to reign upon the earth and in my world, and that the end of their times might come through them?
And the fourth came, and *overwane, subdue all the beasts that were past, and had power over the world with great fearfulness, and over the whole compass of the earth with the most wicked labor, and so long time dwelt he upon the earth with deceit, and the earth thou hast not judged the truth. For thou hast troubled the meek, thou hast hurt the peaceable and quiet, thou hast loved lies, and destroyed the dwellings of them that brought forth fruit, and hast cast down the walls of such as did thee no harm. Therefore is thy wrongeous dealing and blasphemy come up unto the Highest, and thy pride unto the Mighty. The Highest also hath looked upon the proud times, and behold, they are ended, and their abominations are fulfilled. And therefore appear no more thou Eagle, and thy horrible wings, and thy wicked feathers, and thy ungracious heads, and thy sinful claws, and all thy vain body: that the earth may be refreshed, and come again to herself, when she is delivered from thy violence, and that she may hope for the judgement and mercy of him that made her
Note Eagle *he spread his wings "over all the earth". *overwane= lord over (sml l ) over / diminish, weaken.
