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 dream during the 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 moved to remembrance of that place at the end of the world.
and there he had been given purest spring waters to drink.
and the man brought with him the purest spring waters.
and brought the purest spring waters to his house...
and that with many other blessings given him ...
and i was shown in the midst of the mans blessings ...crystals...
Yet the meaning of the crystals i was not shown...nevertheless the man shared all that he had been given with others...
and offered drink of the purest spring waters to any that might drink of it.
and his house had many doors to it ...
and room a plenty ...
and more room was made for his many blessing that he was given ...
and the man was joy full and thank full of heart and mind and soul.
and that to God his father and Jesus his brother and Lord.
of the manyous blessings he was given ...
and not of the mans own worth or works.
Yet of the loving grace and caring and love of God his father and Jesus his brother and Lord.
and i was shown the more that the man offered the purest spring waters to any one.
and went out of his house and down a worthy path to share the purest spring waters
and his neighbors roundabout gave him room ...
and looked upon him lovingly ...
and i was taken and shown over the last high place ...
and there was a city of lights ...
and every each house had light in it ...
and the light was God their father and Jesus their brother and Lord.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
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.
JOB Chpt 27
And Job proceeded a went forth in his communication saying: As truly as God liveth ( which hath taken away my power from me ) and the Almighty, that hath vexed my mind: My lips shall talk of no vanity, and my tongue shall speak no deceit, while my breath is in me, and as long as the wind ( that God hath given me ) is in my nostrils.
God forbid, that I should grant your cause to be right. As for me, until mine end come will I never go from my innocency. My righteous dealings keep I fast, which I will not forsake: my heart shall not reprove me of my days. Therefore mine enemy shall be found as ungodly, and he that taketh part against me, as the unrighteous. What hope hath the hypocrite, though he have great good, and though God give him riches after his hearts desire? Doth God hear him the sooner, when he crieth unto him in his necessity? Hath he such pleasure and delight in the Almighty, that he dare call upon God? I will teach you in the name of God? and the thing that I have of the Almighty, will I not keep from you. Behold, ye stand in your own conceit, as though ye knew all things. Wherefore then do ye go about with such vain words saying: This is that portion that the wicked shall have of God, and the heritage that the Tyrants shall receive of the Almighty. If he get many children, they shall perish with the sword, and his posterity shall have scarceness of bread. Look whom he leaveth behind him, they shall die and be buried, and no man shall pity of his widows. Though he have as much money as the dust of the earth, and raiment as ready as the clay, he may well prepare it: but the godly shall put it upon him, and the innocent shall deal out the money. His house shall endure as the moth, and as a *booth that the watchman maketh. When the rich man dieth, he carrieth nothing with him: he is gone in the twinkling of an eye. Destruction taketh hold upon him as the water flood, and the tempest stealeth him away in the night season. A vehement wind carryeth him hence, and departeth: a storm plucketh him out of his place. It rusheth in upon him, and spareth him not, he may not escape the power thereof. Then clap men their hands at him, yee and jest of him, when they look upon his place
JOB Chpt 28
There are places were silver is molten, and where gold is tried: where iron is digged out of the ground, and stones are resolved to metal. The darkness shall once come to an end, he can seek out the ground of all things: the stones, the dark, and the horrible shadow. With the river of water parteth he asunder the strange people, that knoweth no good neighbor head: such as are rude, unmannerly and boisterous: He bringeth food out of the earth, and that which is under, consumeth he with fire. There is found a place, whose stones are clean Sapphires, and where the clots of the are gold. There is a way also that the birds know not, that no vultures eye hath seen: wherein the proud and high minded walk not, and where no lion cometh. There putteth he his hand upon the stoney rocks, and over throweth the mountains. Rivers flow out of the rocks, and look what is pleasant, his eye seeth it. Out of the rocks bringeth he great floods together, and the thing that is hid bringeth he to light. How cometh a man then by wisdom? Where is the place where men find understanding? Verily no man can tell how worthy a thing she is, neither is she found in the land of the living. The deep saith: she is not in me. The sea saith: she is not with me. She cannot be gotten for the most fine gold, neither may the price of her be bought with any money. No wedges of the gold of Ophir, no precious Onyx stones, no Sapphire may be compared unto her. No, neither gold nor crystal, neither sweet odors ner golden plate. There is nothing so worthy, or so excellent, as once to be named unto her: for perfect wisdom goeth far beyond them all. The Topaz that cometh out of Inde, may no wise be likened unto her: yee no manner of apparel how pleasant and fair soever it be.
From where then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding? She is hid from the eyes of all men, yee and from the fouls of the air. Destruction and death say: We have heard tell of her with our ears. But God seeth her way, and knoweth her place. For he holdeth the ends of the world and looketh upon all that is under heaven. When he weighed the winds, and measured the waters: When he set the rain in order, and gave the mighty floods a law. Then did he see her, then declared he her, prepared her and knew her. And unto man he said: Behold, to fear the Lord, is wisdom: and to forsake evil, is understanding
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 54
Therefore be glad now, thou barren that barest not. Rejoice, sing and be merry, thou that art not with child: For the desolate hath no more children, then the married wife, saith the Lord. Make thy tent wider, and spread out the hangings of thy habitation: spare not, lay forth thy coards, and make fast thy stakes: for thou shalt break out on the right side and on the left, and thy seed shall have the Gentiles in possession, and dwell in the desolate cities. Fear not, for thou shalt not be confounded: Be not ashamed, for thou shalt not come to confusion. Yee thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the dishonor of thy *wedowhead. For he that made thee, shall be thy Lord and husband ( whose name is the Lord of Hosts ) and thine avenger shall be even the holy one of Israel, the Lord of the whole world. For the Lord shall call thee, being as a desolate sorrowful woman, and as a young wife that hath broken her wedlock: sayeth thy God.
A little while have I forsaken thee, but with great mercifulness will I take thee up unto me. When I was angry, I hid my face from thee for a little season, but through everlasting goodness shall I pardon thee, sayeth the Lord thy avenger. And this must be unto me as the water of Noe: for as like I have sworn that I will not bring the water of Noe any more upon the world: so have I sworn that I will never be angry with thee, nor reprove thee: The mountains shall remove, and the hills shall fall down: but my loving kindness shall not move, and the bond of my peace be shall not fall down from thee, saith the Lord thy merciful lover. Behold thou poor, vexed, and despised: I will make walls of precious stones, and thy foundation of Sapphires, thy windows of crystal, thy gates of fine clear stone, and thy borders of pleasant stones. Thy children shall all be taught of God, and I will give them plenteousness of peace. In righteousness shalt thou be grounded, and be far from oppression: for the which thou needest not be afraid, neither for hinderance, for it shall not come nye thee. Behold, the *aleaunt that was far from thee, shall dwell with thee: and he that was sometime a stranger unto thee, shall be joined with thee: Behold, I make the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and he maketh a weapon after his handy work. I make also the waster to destroy: but all the weapons that are made against thee, shall not prosper. And as for all tongues, that shall resist thee in judgment, thou shalt over come them, and condemn them. This is the heritage of the Lords servants, and the righteousness that they shall have of me, saith the Lord

EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 1
It chanced in the thirtieth year the fifth day of the fourth Month, that I was among the prisoners by the river of Cobar: where the heavens were opened, and I saw a vision of God. Now the fifth day of the month, made out the fifth year of King Joacins captivity. At the same time came word of the Lord unto Ezechiel the son of Buzi the priest, in the land of the Caldees by the water of Cobar, where the hand of the Lord came upon him.
And I looked, and behold, a stormy wind came out of the North with a great cloud full of fire, which with his glistre lightening all round about. And in the midest of the fire it was all clear, and as it were the likeness of four beasts, which were fashioned like a man: saving that every one had four faces and four wings.
Their legs were straight, But their feet were like bullocks feet, and they glistered, as it had been fair scoured metal. Under their wings upon all the four corners they had mens hands. Their faces and wings were toward the four corners: yet were the wings so, that one ever touched another. When they went, they turned them not about: but each one went straight forward.
Upon the right side of these four, their faces were like the faces of a man, and the face of a Lion: But upon the left side, they had the face of an ox, and the face of an Eagle. Their faces also and their wings were spread out above: so that two wings of one touched ever two wings of another, and with the other they covered the body. Every one when it went, it went straight forward. Where as the spirit led them, *thither they went, and turned not about in their going.
The fashion and the countenance of the beasts was like hot coals of fire, even as though burning *cressettes had been among the beasts: and the fire gave a gilister, and out of the fire there went lighting. When the beasts went forward and backward, one would have thought it had lighteninged. Now when I had well considered the beasts, I saw a work of wheels upon the earth with four faces also like the beasts.
The fashion and the work of the wheels was like the sea. The four wheels were joined and made ( to look upon ) as it had been one wheel in another. When the one went forward, they went all four, and turned them not about in their going. They were large, great and horrible to look upon. Their bodies were full of eyes round about them all four. When the beasts went, the wheels went also with them: And when the beasts lift themselves up from the earth, the wheels were lift up also. Whither soever the spirit went, thither went they also, and the wheels were lift up, and followed them: for the spirit of life was in the wheels. When the beasts went forth, stood still, or lift themselves up from the earth: then the wheels also went, stood still, and were lift up, for the breath of life was in the wheels.
Above over the heads of the beasts there was a firmament, which was fashioned as it had been of the most pure crystal, and that was spread out above their heads: under the same firmament were their wings layed abroad, one toward another, and two wings covered the body of every beast. And when they went forth I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as it had been the voice of the great God, and the rushing together as it were of a host of men. And when they stood still, they let down their wings. Now when they stood still, and had let down their wings, it thundered in the firmament that was above their heads. Above the firmament that was over their heads, there was a fashion of a seat, as it had been made of Sapphire. Upon the seat there sat one like a man. I beheld him, and he was like a clear light, as it had been all of fire within from his loins upward.
And beneath when I looked upon him under the loins, me thought he was like a shining fire, that giveth light on every side. Yee the shine and the glittereth lightening round about, was like a rainbow, which in a rainy day appeareth in the clouds. Even so was the similitude, wherein the glory of the Lord appeared. When I saw it, I fell upon my face, and harkened unto the voice of him that spake
*thither= to or toward that place or in that direction there, distant/
*cressettes= A metal cup, often suspended on a pole, containing burning oil or pitch and used as a torch.
EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 27
The word of the Lord came unto me, saying: O thou son of man, make lamentable complaint upon Tyre, and say upon Tyre, which is a port of the sea, that occupieth with much people, and many Isles: Thus saith the Lord God: O Tyrus, thou hast said: what, I am a noble city: thy borders are in the midst of the seas, and thy builders have made thy marvelous goodly. All thy tables have they made of Cypress trees of the mount Sanir. From Libanus have they taken Cedar trees, to make the masts: and the Oaks of Basan to make the rowers.
Thy boards have they made of ivory, and of costly wood out of the Isle of Cethim. Thy sail was of white small needle work out of the land of Egypt, to hang upon thy mast: and thy hangings of yellow silk purple, out of the Isles of Elisah. They of Sidon and Arnad were thy mariners, and the wisest in Tyre were thy shipmasters. The eldest and wisest at Gebal were they, that mended and stopped thy ships. All ships of the sea with their shipment occupied their merchandise in thee. The Perses, Lidians and the Libians were in thine host, and helped thee to fight: these hanged up their shields and helmets with thee, these set forth thy beauty. They of Arnad were with thine host round about thy walls, and were thy watchmen upon thy towers, they hanged their shields round about thy walls, and made thee marvelous goodly. Tharsis occupied with thee in all manner of wares, in silver, iron, tin, and lead, and made thy market great. Javan, Tubal and Mesech were thy merchants, which brought the men, and ornaments of metal, for thy occupying. They of the house of Thogarma brought unto thee at the time of thy mart, horse, horsemen and mules. They of Dedan were thy merchants: and many other Isles that occupied with thee, brought thee *wethers, elephant bones and Paycockes for a present. The Syrians occupied with thee, because of thy diverse works, and increased thy merchandise, with *Smaragdes, with scarlet, with needle work, with white linen cloth, with silk and with crystal.
Judah and the land of Israel occupied with thee, and brought unto thy markets, wheat, balm, honey, oil and *triacle. Damascus also used merchandises with thee, in the best wine and white wool: because thy occupying was so great, and thy wares so many. Dan, Javan, and Mevsall have brought unto thy markets, iron ready made, with Casia, and Calamus, according to thine occupying. Dedan occupied with thee, in fair tapestry work and *quishins. Aribia and all the princes of Cedar have occupied with thee, in sheep, wethers, and goats.
The merchants of Sheba and *Rema, have occupied with also with thee, in all costly spices, in all precious stones and gold, which they brought unto thy markets. Haran, Chenne, and Eden, the merchants of Saba, Assiria, and Chelmad, were all doers with thee and occupied with thee: In costly raiment, of yellow silk and needle work ( very precious, and therefore packed and bound together with ropes ) Yee and in Cedar wood, at the time of thy markets. The ships of Tharsis were the chief of thy occupying.
Thus thou art full, and in great worship, even in the midst of the sea. Thy mariners were ever bringing unto thee out of many waters. But the east wind shall over bear thee into the midest of the sea: so that thy wares, thy merchandise, thy riches, thy mariners, thy shipmasters, thy helpers, thy occupiers ( that brought the things necessary ) the men of war that, are in thee: Yee and all thy *comens shall perish in the midst of the sea, in the day of thy fall. The suburbs shall shake at the loud cry of thy shipmen. All whirry men, and all mariners upon the sea, shall leap out of their boats, and set themselves upon the land. They shall lift up their voice because of thee, and make a lamentable cry. They shall cast up dust upon their heads, and lay down in the ashes. They shall shave themselves, and put sackcloth upon them for thy sake.
They shall mourn for thee with heartfull sorrow, and heavy lamentation, yee their children also will weep for thee. Alas, what city hath been so destroyed in the sea, as Tyre is? When thy wares and merchants came from the seas, thou gavest all people enough. The kings of the earth hast thou made rich, through the multitude of thy wares and occupying: But thou art now cast down in to the deep of the sea, all thy resort of people is perished with thee. All they that dwell in the Isles are abashed at thee, and all their kings are afraid, yee their faces have changed color. The merchants of the nations wonder at thee. In that thee are so clean brought to naught, and comest no more up
*wethers=a castrated male sheep:ram. *Smaragdes=may be "samara" winged seeds, also called "key fruit" like unto ash, elm, or maple. *quishins; unknown maybe cushions *triacle=treaAcle 1. Cloying speech or sentiment. 2. Molasses. 3. A medicinal compound formerly used as an antidote for poison.

EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 28
The word of the Lord came unto me saying: Thou son of man, Tell the prince of Tyre: Thus saith the Lord God, because thou hast a proud heart and hast said: I am a God, I have my seat in the midst sea like a God: where as thou art but a man, and not God, and yet standest thou in thine own conceit, that thou art God: Behold, thou thinkest thyself wiser than Daniel, that there is no secrets hid from thee. With thy wisdom and thy understanding, thou hast gotten thee great wealthiness, and gathered treasure of silver and gold. With thy great wisdom and occupying, hast thou increased thy power, and because of thy great riches, thy heart is proud.
Therefore thus saith the Lord God: For so much as thou hast lift up thine heart, as though thou were God: behold, I will bring enemies upon thee, even the tyrants of the Heathen: These shall draw out their swords upon thy beauty and thy wisdom, and shall defile thy glory. They shall cast thee down to the pit, so that thou shalt die in the midst of the sea, as they that have been slain. Let see if thou wilt say then ( before them that slay thee ) I am God: where as thou art but a man and not God, in the hands of them that slayeth thee. Die shalt thou, even as the uncircumcised in the hands of the enemies: for I myself have spoken it, saith the Lord God.
Moreover, the word of the Lord came unto me, saying: Thou son of man, make a lamentable complaint over the king of Tyre, and tell him: Thus saith the Lord God: Thou art a seal of a likeness, full of wisdom and excellent beauty. Thou hast been in the pleasure garden of God: thou art decked with all manner of precious stones: with Ruby, Topas, crystal, Jacinete, Onyx, Jaspis, Sapphire, *Smaragde, carbuncle, and gold. Thy beauty and the *holes that be in thee were set forth in the day of thy creation. Thou art a fair Cherub, stretched wide out for to cover.
I have set thee upon the holy mount of God, there hast thou been, and walked among the fair glittering stones. From the time of thy creation thou hast been right excellent, till wickedness was found in thee. Because of thy great merchandise, thy heart is full of wickedness, and thou hast offended. Therefore will I cast thee from the mountain of God ( O thou covering Cherub ) and destroy thee among the glittering stones. Thy heart was proud in thy fair beauty, and through thy beauty thou hast destroyed thy wisdom. I will cast thee down to the ground, and that in the sight of kings. Thou hast defiled thy Sanctuary, with the great wickedness of thy unrighteous occupying. I will bring a fire from the midst of thee, to consume thee: and will make thee to ashes, in the sight of all them that look upon thee. All they that have been acquainted with thee among the Heathen shall be abashed at thee: seeing thou art so clean brought to naught, and comest no more up.
And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying: Thou son of man, set thy face against Sidon. Prophesy upon it, and speak. Thus saith the Lord God: Behold O Sidon, I will upon thee, and get me honor in thee: that it may be known, how that I am the Lord, when I punish her, and get me honor in her. For I will send pestilence and blood shedding into her streets, so that those which be slain with the sword, shall lay round about in the midst of her: and they shall know, that I am the Lord. She shall no more be a pricking thorn, and an hurting brier unto the house of Israel, nor unto them that lie round about her and hate her: and they shall know, that I am the Lord.
Thus saith the Lord God: When I gather the household of Israel together again from the nations among whom they be scattered: then shall I be sanctified in them in the sight of the Gentiles, and they shall dwell in land, that I gave to my servant Jacob. They shall dwell safely therein, build houses, and plant vineyards: yee safely shall they dwell therein, when I have punished all those, that despise them round about: and then shall they know, that I am the Lord their God

THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 4
After this I looked, and behold a door was open in heaven, and the first voice which I heard, was as it were of a trumpet talking with me which said: come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be fulfilled here after. And immediately I was in the spirit: And behold a seat was put in heaven, and one sat on the seat. And he that sat, was to look upon, like unto a jasper stone and a sardine stone: And there was a rainbow about the seat, in sight like to an emerald. And about the seat were twenty four seats. And upon the seats twenty four elders sitting, clothed in white raiment, and had on their heads crowns of gold.
And out of the seat proceeded lightnings, and thunderings, and voices, and there were seven lamps of fire, burning before the seat, which are the seven spirits of God. And before the seat there was a sea of glass like unto crystal, and in the midst of the seat, and round about the seat were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each one of them six wings about him, and they were full of eyes with in. And they had no rest day neither night saying: Holy, holy, holy, Lord God almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
And when those beasts gave glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the seat, which liveth for ever and ever: the twenty four elders fell down before him that sat on the throne, and worshipped him that liveth for ever, and cast their crowns before the throne saying: thou art worthy Lord to receive glory and honour, and power, for thou hast created all things, and for thy wills sake they are, and were created
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 21
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven, and the first earth were vanished away, and there was no more sea. And I John saw that holy city new Jerusalem come down from God out of heaven prepared as a bride garnished for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying: behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them. And they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow neither crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the old things are gone. And he that sat upon the seat, said. Behold I make all things new. And he said unto me: write, for these words are faithful and true.
And he said unto me: it is done, I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him that is a thirst of the well of the water of life, free. He that overcometh, shall inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
And there came unto me one of the seven Angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues: and talked with me saying: come hither, I will show thee the bride, the lambs wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and an high mountain, and he showed me the great city, holy Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God, having the brightness of God. And her shining was like unto a stone most precious, even a Jasper clear as crystal: and had walls great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve Angels: and names written, which are the twelve tribes of Israel: on the East part three gates, and on the North side three gates, and towards the South three gates, and from the west three gates: and the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the lambs twelve apostles.
And he that talked with me, had a golden reed to measure the city with all and the gates thereof and the wall thereof. And the city was built four square and the length was as large as the breadth of it, and he measured the city with the reed twelve thousand furlongs: and the length and the breadth, and the height of it, were equal. And he measured the wall thereof an hundred and forty four cubits: the measure that the angel had was after the measure that man useth. And the building of the wall of it was of Jasper. And the city was pure gold like unto clear glass and the foundations of the wall of the city was garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was Jasper, the second Sapphire, the third a Chalcedony, the fourth an Emerald: the fifth Sardonyx: the sixth Sardeos: the seventh Chrysolite: the eighth Berall: the ninth a Topas: the tenth a Crysoprasos: the eleventh a Jacincte: the twelfth an Amatist.
The twelve gates were twelve pearls, every gate was of one pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, as through shining glass. And there was no temple therein. For the Lord God almighty and the lamb are the temple of it. and the city hath no need of the *son neither of the moon to lighten it. For the brightness of God did light it: and the lamb was the light of it. And the people which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth shall bring their glory unto it. And the gates of it are not shut by day. For there shall be no night there. And there shall enter into it none unclean thing: neither what soever worketh abomination or maketh lies: but they only which are written in the lambs book of life.
*son: exactly as it appears; sonne other places see that sun was spelled sunne in the original.
THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 22
And he showed me a pure river of water of life clear as crystal: proceeding out of the seat of God and of the lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river was there wood of life: which bare twelve manner of fruits: and gave fruit every month: and the leaves of the wood served to heal the people with all. And there shall be no more curse, but the seat of God and the lamb shall be in it: and his servants shall serve him. And they shall see his face, and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there, and they need no candle, neither light of the sun: for the Lord Giveth them light, and they shall reign for evermore.
And he said unto me: these sayings are faithful and true. And the Lord God of Saints and Prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants, the things which must shortly be fulfilled. Behold I come shortly. Happy is he that keepeth the saying of the prophecy of this book. I am John which saw these things and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down, to worship before the feet of the Angel which showed me these things. And he said unto me: see thou do it not, for I am thy fellow servant and the fellow servant of thy brethren the Prophets and of them which keep the sayings of this book. But worship God.
And he said unto me: seal not the sayings of the prophesy of this book. For the time is at hand. He that doth evil, let him do evil still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be more righteous: and he that is holy, let him be more holy. And behold I come shortly, and my reward with me, to give every man according as his deeds shall be. I am Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end: the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that their power may be in the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without shall be dogs and enchanters and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth or maketh leasings.
I Jesus sent mine angel, to testify unto you these things in the congregations. I am the root and the generation of David, and the bright morning star. And the spirit and the bride said come. And let him that heareth, say also, come. And let him that is a thirst, come. And let whosoever will, take of the water of life, free.
I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book: *If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall minish of the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from those things which are written in this book. He which testifieth these things saith: be it, I come quickly, Amen.
Even so: come Lord Jesu.
The grace of our Lord Jesu Christ be with you all:
*If any man shall add unto these things...And if any man shall minish of the words ... discern for yourselves ...the 100's and 100's of dieverse "bibles of man".
