The Truth of the "time" we are in ...

...whose house are we ...

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 a man ...

      and the man was building a house ...

      and the man had a wife ...

      and the man loved God and Christ in spirit and truth ...

      evenso his wife ...thought him only "religious" and "churchly" ...and entertaining his spirituality ...     

      Nevertheless they ...they were building an house ..."together" ...

      and the husband had friends ...that also loved God and Christ in spirit and truth ...

      and they also helped him build his house ...

      even the one built of men's hands and with concrete wood and plaster and paint ...

      and the wife ...looked all ways ...to the house upon the earth ...in ...and of the world ...of the worldly ...

      and she constantly compared her house to others ...to make sure it was ...worthy ...as good ...equal to ...or better than the neighbors ...

      and a place she could be proud of ...

      and in and of the place ...in and of the world ...she would raise ...her children ...

      and the house would never be enough ...in the world of the worldly ...

      for there is ...in ...within ...the world of the worldly ...never any rest ...for the lust of the eye ...lust of the flesh ...and the pride of goods ...

      and the pushing and climbing and fighting to stay ahead ...and keep UP ...to be ABOVE others ...

      and the wife wondered ...a mighty wonder ...for the worldly house ...was like the worldly religions ...and the building of worldly churches ...

      and she wondered why her husband ...and his friends that loved God and Christ the same ...had no "church" ...

      evenso the husband ...built the house ...with and for the wife ...and his children ...IN the world ...

      Yet he desired that his house ...be not ...OF ...the world or the world of the worldly ...

      and his temple that he worshipped God and Christ in ...IN WAS HIS HEART ...

      and that in spirit and truth ...

      and i was not shown if ...or whether ...or not ...the mans wife ..."received the truth" ...that she might live in the same house with her husband ...

      and worship in her heart ...God and Christ ...in spirit and truth ...

      and NOT ...NOT in houses built with men's hands ...

      and NOT... even in churches and temples built the same ...

      and with high pinnacles ...(steeples) ...and plastered and painted walls ...

      and RED carpets ..leading to their garnished altars ...of imaginary holiness ...

      and all roundabout the place ...the graves of the dead ...who worshiped the same ...

      and some grave stones ...richer that others ...some higher than others ...some more polished than others ...

      and all of all the dead ...buried ...placed ...positioned ...according to their patronage of the parsonage ...

     

      and scripture came back to remembrance ...

THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 7

As concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: it is good for a man, not to touch a woman. Nevertheless to avoid fornication, let every man have his wife: and let every woman have her husband. Let the man give unto the wife due *benevolence. Likewise also the wife unto the man. The wife hath not power over her own body: but the husband. And likewise the man hath not power over his own body: but the wife. Withdraw not yourselves one from another, except it be with consent for a time, for to give yourselves to fasting and prayer. And afterward come again to the same thing, lest Satan tempt you for your *incontinence.
      This I say of favour, not of commandment. For I would that all men were as I myself am: but every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, another after that. I say unto the unmarried men and widows: it is good for them if they abide even as I do. But and if they cannot abstain, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn.
      Unto the married command not I, but the Lord: that the wife separate not herself from the man. If she separate herself, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled unto her husband again. And let not the husband put away his wife from him.
      To the remnant speak I, and not the Lord. If any brother have a wife that believeth not, if she be content to dwell with him, let him not put her away. And the woman which hath to her husband an infidel, if he consent to dwell with her, let her not put him away. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband. Or else were your children unclean: but now are they pure. But and if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not in subjection to such. God hath called us in peace. For how knowest thou o woman, whether thou shalt save that man or no? Other how knowest thou o man whether thou shalt save that woman or no? but even as God hath distributed to every man.
      As the Lord hath called every person, so let him walk: and so ordain I in all congregations. If any man be called being circumcised, let him add nothing thereto. If any be called uncircumcised: let him not be circumcised. Circumcision is nothing, uncircumcision is nothing: but the keeping of the commandments of God is altogether.
      Let every man abide in the same state wherein he was called. Art thou called a servant? care not for it. Nevertheless if thou mayst be free, use it rather. For he that is called in the Lord being a servant is the Lords freeman. Likewise he that is called being free, is Christs servant. Ye are dearly bought, be not mens servants. Brethren let every man wherein he is called, therein abide with God.
      As concerning virgins, I have no commandment of the Lord: yet give I counsel, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful. I suppose that it is good for the present necessity. For it is good for a man so to be. Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not, a wife. But and if thou take a wife thou sinnest not. Likewise if a virgin marry, she sinneth not. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in their flesh: but I favour you.
      This say I brethren, the time is short. It remaineth that they which have wives, be as though they had none, and they that weep be as though they wept not: and they that rejoice, be as though they rejoiced not: and they that buy, be as though they possessed not: and they that use this world, be as though they used it not. For the fashion of this world goeth away. I would have you without care. The single man careth for the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord. But he that hath married, careth for the things of the world, how he may please his wife. There is difference between a virgin and a wife. The single woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be pure both in body and also in spirit. But she that is married, careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband. This speak I for your profit, not to tangle you in a snare: but for that which is honest and comely unto you, and that ye may quietly cleave unto the Lord without separation.
      If any man think that it is uncomely for his virgin, if she pass the time of marriage, and if so need require, let him do what he listeth, he sinneth not: let them be coupled in marriage. Nevertheless he that purposeth surely in his heart, having none need: but hath power over his own will: and hath so decreed in his heart, that he will keep his virgin, doth well. So then he that joineth his virgin in marriage doth well. But he that joineth not his virgin in marriage, doth better. The wife is bound to the law as long as her husband liveth. If her husband sleep, she is at liberty to marry with whom she will, only in the Lord. But she is happier if she so abide, in my judgement. And I think verily that I have the spirit of God.

      TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 3

Therefore holy brethren, partakers of the celestial callings consider the ambassador and high priest of our profession Christ Jesus, which was faithful to him that made him, even as was Moses in all his house. And yet was this man counted worthy of more glory than Moses: In as much as he which hath prepared the house, hath most honour in the house. Every house is prepared of some man. But he that ordained all things, is God. And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a minister, to bear witness of those things which should be spoken afterward. But Christ as a son, hath rule over the house, whose house are we, so that we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of that hope, unto the end.
      Wherefore as the *holy ghost saith: today if ye shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts, after the rebellion in the day of temptation in the wilderness, where your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years long. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation and said: They *erre ever in their hearts: they verily have not known my ways so that I sware in my wrath, that they should not enter into my rest. Take heed brethren that there be in none of you an evil heart in unbelief, that he should depart from the living God: but exhort one another daily, while it is called today, lest any of you wax hard hearted through the deceitfulness of sin.
      We are partakers of Christ if we keep sure unto the end the first substance, so long as it is said: today if ye hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as when ye rebelled. For some, when they heard, rebelled: how be it not all that came out of Egypt under Moses. But with whom was he displeased forty years? Was he not displeased with them that sinned whose carcasses were overthrown in the desert? To whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest: but unto them that believed not? And we see that they could not enter in, because of unbelief.

      THE FIRST TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 3

  Are ye not *ware that ye are the temple of God, and how that the spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy. For the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. Let no man deceive him self. If any man seem wise among you, let him be a fool in this world, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written: he compasses the wise in their craftiness. And again, God knoweth the thoughts of the wise that they be vain. Therefore let no man rejoice in men. For all things are yours, whether it be Paul, either Apollos, either Cephas: whether it be the world, or life, either death, whether they be present things or things to come: all are yours: and ye are Christs, and Christ is Gods.

     

THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 14

  For in the old time also, when the proud giants perished, he ( in whom the hope was left to increase the world ) went into the ship, which was governed through thy hand, and so left seed behind him unto the world. For happy is the tree where through righteousness cometh: but cursed is the image of wood, that is made with hands, yee both it and he that made it. He, because he made it: and it because it was called God, where as it is but a frail thing. For the ungodly and his ungodliness are both like abominable unto God. Even so the work and he that made it also shall be punished together. Therefore shall there a plague come upon the images of the Heathen: for out of the creature of God they are become an abomination, a temptation unto the souls of men, and a snare for the feet of the unwise. And why the seeking out of images is the beginning of whoredom, and the bringing up of them is the destruction of life. For they were not from the beginning, neither shall they continue forever. The wealthy idleness of men hath found them out upon the earth, therefore shall they come shortly to an end.
      For a father mourned for his son that was taken away from him, he made an image ( in all the hast ) of his dead son: and so began to worship him as God, which was but a dead man, and *ordained his servants to offer unto him. Thus by process of time and through long custom, this error was kept as a law, and tyrants compelled men by violence to honor images. As for those that were so far off, that men might not worship them presently, their picture was brought from far, like the image of a King whom they would honor, to the intent that with great diligence they might worship him which was far off, as though he had been present. Again, the singular conning of the craftsman gave the ignorant also a great occasion to worship images. For the workman willing to do him a pleasure that set him a work, labored with all his conning to make the image of the best fashion. And so ( through the beauty of the work ) the common people was deceived, in so much that they took him now for a God, which alittle afore was honored as a man. And this was the error of mans life, when men ( either for to serve their own affection, or to do some pleasure unto Kings ) ascribed unto stones and stocks the name of God, which ought to be given unto no man.
      Moreover, this was not enough for them that they erred in the knowledge of God: but where as they lived in the great wars of ignorance, those many and great plagues called they peace. For either they slew their own children, and offered them, or did sacrifice in the night season, or else held unreasonable watches: so that they kept neither life ner marriage clean: but either one slew another to death maliciously or else grieved his neighbor with *advoutry. And thus were all things mixed together: blood manslaughter, theft, dissimulation, corruption, unfaithfulness, sedition, perjury, disquietness of good men, unthankfulness, defiling of souls, changing of birth, unsteadfastness of marriage, misorder of *advoutry and uncleanness. And why? the honoring of abominable images is the cause, the beginning and end of all evil. For they worship Idols, either they are mad when they be merry, or prophesy lies, or live ungodly, or else lightly foreswear themselves. For in so much as their trust is in the Idols ( which have neither souls ner understanding ) though they swear falsely, yet they think it shall not hurt them.
      Therefore cometh a great plague upon them, and that worthily: for they have an evil opinion of God, giving heed unto Idols, swearing unjustly to deceive, and despising righteousness. For their swearing is no virtue, but a plague of them that sin, and goeth ever with the offense of the ungodly.

*ordened: ordained (ordered).
*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 GOSPELL OF ST. MARK Chpt 14

  And the high Priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesu, to put him to death and found none. Yet many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together. And there arose certain and brought false witness against him, saying. We heard him say: I will destroy this temple made with hands, and within three days I will build another, made without hands. But their witness agreed not together.
      And the highest Priest stood up amongst them, and asked Jesus saying: answerest thou nothing? How is it that these bear witness against thee? And he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the highest Priest asked him, and said unto him: Art thou Christ the son of the blessed? And Jesus said: I am. And ye shall see the son of man sit on the right hand of power, and come in the clouds of heaven. Then the highest priest rent his clothes and said: what need we any further of witness? Ye have heard the blasphemy, what think ye? And they all gave sentence that he was worthy of death. And some began to spit at him, and to cover his face, and to beat him with fists, and to say unto him, *arede unto us. And the servants buffeted him on the face.

THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 7

Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as he had appointed them speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen. Which tabernacle our fathers received, and brought it in with Joshue into the possession of the Gentiles which God drave out before the face of our fathers unto the time of David, which found favour before God, and would faine have made a tabernacle for the God of Jacob. But Solomon built him an house.
      How be it he that is highest of all, dwelleth not in temples made with hands, as saith the Prophet: Heaven is my seat, and earth is my footstool, what house will ye build for me saith the Lord? or what place is it that I should rest in hath not my hand made all these things?
      Ye stiffnecked and of uncircumcised hearts and ears: ye have all ways resisted the holy ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the Prophets have not your fathers persecuted? And they have slain them, which showed before of the coming of that *Just, whom ye have now betrayed and murdered. And ye also have received a law by the ordinance of Angels, and have not kept it.
      When they heard these things, their hearts clave asunder, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. But he being full of the holy ghost, looked up steadfastly with his eyes into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, and said: behold, I see the heavens open, and the son of man standing on the right hand of God. Then they gave a shout with a loud voice, and stopped their ears and ran upon him all at once, and cast him out of the city, and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young mans feet named Saul. And they stoned Stephen calling on and saying: Lord Jesus receive my spirit. And he kneeled down and cried with a loud voice: Lord lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had thus spoken, he fell asleep.

THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 17

Paul stood in the midst of Marce street and said: ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by and beheld the manner how ye worship your gods, I found an altar wherein was written: unto the unknown God. Whom ye then ignorantly worship him show I unto you: God that made the world and all that are in it, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, he dwelleth not in temples made with hands, neither is worshipped with mens hands, as though he needed of any thing, seeing he himself giveth life and breath to all men everywhere, and hath made of one blood all nations of men, for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath assigned before, how long time, and also the ends of their inhabitation, that they should seek God, if they might feel and find him, though he be not far from every one of us. For in him we live, move and have your being, as certain of your own Poets said. For we are also his generation. For as much then as we are the generation of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, silver or stone, graven by craft and imagination of man.
      And the time of this ignorance God regarded not. but now he biddeth all men everywhere repent, because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world according to righteousness, by that man whom he hath appointed, and hath offered faith to all men, after that he had raised him from death.
      When they heard of the resurrection from death, some mocked, and other said: we will hear thee again of this matter. So Paul departed from among them. How be it certain men clave unto Paul and believed, among the which was Dionysius a senator, and a woman named Damaris, and other with them

THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES Chpt 19

  The same time there arose no little ado about that way. For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, which made silver shrines for Diana, was not a little beneficial unto the craftsmen. Which he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said: Sirs, ye know that by this craft we have vantage. Moreover ye see and hear that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be not gods which are made with hands. So that not only this our craft cometh into peril to be set at nought: but also that the temple of the great Goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, which all Asia and the world worshippeth.
      When they heard these sayings, they were full of wrath, and cried out saying: Great is Diana of the Ephesians. And all the city was on a roar, and they rushed into the common hall with one assent, and caught Gaius and Aristarcus, men of Macedonia, Pauls companions. When Paul would have entered in unto the people, the disciples suffered him not. Certain also of the chief of Asia which were his friends, sent unto him, desiring him that he would not press into the common hall. Some cried one thing and some another, and the congregation was all out of quiet, and the more part knew not wherefore they were come together.
 

THE SECOND TO THE CORINTHIANS Chpt 5

  We know surely if our earthy mansion wherein we now dwell were destroyed, that we have a building ordained of God, an habitation not made with hands, but eternal in heaven: And therefore sigh we, desiring to be clothed with our mansion which is from heaven: so yet if that we be found clothed, and not naked. For as long as we are in this tabernacle, we sigh and are grieved, for we would not be unclothed, but would be clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. He that hath ordained us for this thing, is God: which very same hath given unto us the earnest of the spirit.
 

TO THE HEBREWS Chpt 9

        But Christ being an high priest of good things to come, came by a greater and a more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands: that is to say, not of this manner building, neither by the blood of goats and calves: but by his own blood he entered once for all into the holy place, and found eternal redemption. For if the blood of oxen and of goats and the ashes of an heifer, when it was sprinkled, purified the unclean, as touching the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ (which through the eternal spirit, offered him self without spot to God) purge your consciences from dead works for to serve the living God?
      And for this cause is he the mediator of the new testament, that through death which chanced for the redemption of those transgressions that were in the first testament, they which were called, might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. For wheresoever is a testament, there must also be the death of him that maketh the testament. For the testament taketh authority when men are dead: For it is of no value as long as he that made it, is alive. For which cause also, neither that first testament was ordained without blood. For when all the commandments were read of Moses unto all the people, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water and purple wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, saying: this is the blood of the testament which God hath appointed unto you. Moreover, he sprinkled the tabernacle with blood also, and all the ministering vessels. And almost all things, are by the law, purged with blood, and with out shedding of blood is no remission.
      It is then need that the similitudes of heavenly things be purified with such things: but the heavenly things themselves are purified with better sacrifices than are those. For Christ is not entered into the holy places that are made with hands, which are but similitudes of true things: but is entered into very heaven, for to appear now in the sight of God for us: not to offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with strange blood, for then must he have often suffered since the world began. But now in the end of the world, hath he appeared once, to put sin to flight, by the offering up of himself: And as it is appointed unto men that they shall once die, and then cometh the judgment, even so Christ was once offered to take away the sins of many, and unto them that look for him, shall he appear again without sin, unto salvation

     

      THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 4

  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.
