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 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 UnGodly world of the worldly ...
and all round about the man was the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes. and the pride of goods.
and the man was taken and shown within in ...within his house.
and his house within ...within was all white ...(and NOT painted white)
and there was a room prepared for the man ...within ...within his house.
and a woman appeared ...
and the woman embraced the man and put to rest all the measures of matters of the flesh...
even all that might rebel against the will of God and Jesus in spirit and truth.
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
ST. PAUL TO THE ROMANS Chpt 7
Remember ye not brethren (I speak to them that know the law) how that the law hath power over a man as long as it endureth? For the woman which is in subjection to a man, is bound by the law to the man, as long as he liveth. If the man be dead, she is loosed from the law of the man. So then if while the man liveth she couple herself with another man, she shall be counted a wedlock breaker. But if the man be dead, she is free from the law: so that she is no wedlock breaker, though she couple herself with another man.
Even so ye my brethren, are dead concerning the law by the body of Christ, that ye should be coupled to another (I mean to him that is risen again from death) that we should bring forth fruit unto God. For when we were in the flesh, the lusts of sin which were stirred up by the law reigned in our members, to bring forth fruit unto death. But now are we delivered from the law and dead from that whereunto we were in bondage that we should serve in a new conversation of the spirit, and not in the old conversation of the letter.
What shall we say then? is the law sin?. God forbid: but I knew not what sin meant but by the law. For I had not known what lust had meant, except the law had said, thou shalt not lust. But sin took an occasion by the means of the commandment and wrought in me all manner of *concupiscence. For verily without the law, sin was dead. I once lived without law. But when the commandment came, sin revived, and I was dead. And the very same commandment which was ordained unto life, was found to be unto me an occasion of death. For sin took occasion by the means of the commandment, and so deceived me, and by the self commandment slew me. Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, just and good.
Was that then which is good, made death unto me? God forbid. Nay sin was death unto me, that it might appear, how that sin by the means of that which is good, had wrought death in me: that sin which is under the commandment, might be out of measure sinful. For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin, because I *wot not what I do. For what I would, that do I not: but what I hate, that do I. If I do now that which I would not, I grant to the law that it is good. So then now, it is not I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is to say in my flesh) dwelleth no good thing. To will is present with me: but I find no means to perform that which is good. For I do not that good thing which I would but that evil do I, which I would not. Finally if I do that I would not, then is it not I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me, doeth it. I find then by the law that when I would do good, evil is present with me. I delight in the law of God, concerning the inner man. But I see another law in my members rebelling against the law of my mind, and subduing me unto the law of sin, which is in my members. O wretched man that i am: who shall deliver me from this body of death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then I myself in my mind serve the law of God, and in my flesh the law of sin
*concupiscence: strong desire; lust of the flesh, lust of the eye and/or pride of goods.
THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. JOHN Chpt 2
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not: if any man sin, yet we have an advocate with the father, Jesus Christ, which is righteous: and he it is that obtaineth grace for our sins: not for our sins only: but also for the sins of all the world. And hereby we are sure that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith I know him, and keepeth not his commandments is a liar,and the verity is not in him. Whosoever keepeth his word, in him is the love of God perfect in deed. And thereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he bideth in him, ought to walk even as he walked.
Brethren I write no new commandment unto you: but that old commandment which ye heard from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye heard from the beginning. Again a new commandment: I write unto you, a thing that is true in him, and also in you: for the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. He that saith how that he is in the light, and yet hateth his brother, is in darkness even until this time. He that loveth his brother, abideth in the light and there is none occasion of evil in him. He that hateth his brother, is in darkness, and walketh in darkness: and cannot tell whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
Babes I write unto you how that your sins are forgiven you for his names sake. I write unto you fathers, how that ye know him that was from the beginning. I write unto you young men, how that ye have overcome the wicked. I write unto you little children, how that ye have known the father. I write unto you fathers, how that ye know him that was from the beginning. I write unto you young men, how that ye are strong and the word of God abideth in you and ye have overcome that wicked.
See that ye love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in him. For all that is in the world (as the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of goods) is not of the father, but of the world. And the world vanisheth away and the lust there of: but he that fulfilleth the will of God, abideth ever.
Little children it is the last time, and as ye have heard how the Antichrist shall come even now are there many Antichrists come already. Whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us. For if they had been of us, they would no doubt, have continued with us. But that fortuned that it might appear, that they were not of us.
And ye have an ointment of the holy ghost, and ye know all things. I wrote not unto you, as though ye knew not the truth: but as though ye knew it, and know also that no lie cometh of truth. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is Christ? The same is the Antichrist that denieth the father and the son. Whosoever denieth the son, the same hath not the father. Let therefore abide in you that same which ye heard from the beginning. If that which ye heard from the beginning, shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the son, and in the father. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
This have I written unto you, concerning them that deceive you. And the anointing which ye have received of him, dwelleth in you. And ye need not that any man teach you: but as the annointing teacheth you all things, and is true, and is no lie, and as it taught you, even so bide therein. And now babes abide in him that when he shall appear, we may be bold and not be made ashamed of him at his coming. If ye know that he is righteous, know also that he which followeth righteousness, is born of him
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 6
Wisdom is better then strength, and a man of understanding is more worth than one that is strong. Hear therefore ( O' ye Kings ) and understand: O' learn ye that be judges of the ends of the earth. Give ear, ye that rule the multitudes, and delight much people. For power is given you of the Lord, and the strength from the Highest: which shall try your works and search out your imaginations: How that ye being officers of his Kingdom, have not kept the law of righteousness, nor walked after his will. Horribly and that right soon shall he appear unto you: for an hard judgment shall they have that bear rule. Mercy is granted unto the simple, but they that be in authority shall be sore punished. For God which is Lord over all, shall except no mans person, neither shall he stand in awe of any mans greatness: for he hath made the small and great, and careth for all alike. But the mighty shall have the sorer punishment.
Unto you therefore ( O' Kings ) do I speak, that ye may learn wisdom and not go amiss: For they that keep righteousness shall be righteously judged: and they that are learned in righteous things, shall find to make answer. Wherefore set your lust upon my words, and love them, so shall ye come by nurture. Wisdom is a noble thing, and never fadeth away: yee she is easily seen of them that love her, and found of such as seek her. She preventeth them that desire her, that she may first show herself unto them. Whoso awaketh unto her by times, shall have no great travail, for he shall find her sitting ready at his doors. To think upon her, is perfect understanding: and whoso watcheth for her, shall be safe, and that soon. For she goeth about, seeking such as are *mete for her, showeth herself cheerfully unto them in their goings, and meeteth them with all diligence. For the unfeigned desire for reformation is her beginning: to care for nurture is love, and love is the keeping of her laws. Now the keeping of the laws is perfection and an uncorrupt life, an uncorrupt life maketh a man familiar with God. And so the desire of wisdom leadeth to the Kingdom everlasting. If your delight be then in royal seats and scepters ( O' ye kings of the people ) set your lust upon wisdom, that ye may reign for evermore. O' love the light of wisdom, all ye that be rulers of the people. As for wisdom what she is, and how she came up I will tell you, and will not hide the mysteries of God from you: but will seek her out from the beginning of the nativity, and bring the knowledge of her into light, and will not keep back the truth: Neither will I do with consuming envy, for such a man shall not be partaker of wisdom. But the multitude of the wise is the welfare of the world, and a wise king is the upholding of the people. O' receive nurture then through my words, and it shall do you good
