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 strangers in the land ...
and they were worthy workers from mexico ...
and they had a heart to escape the wickedness of the land they came from ...
and to live in love and truth and peace ...
and they should not be troubled to be returned to wickedness ...
and scripture came back to remembrance ...
TO THE EPHESIANS Chpt 2
For he is our peace, which hath made of both one, and hath broken down the wall that was a stop between us, and hath also put away through his flesh, the cause of hatred, that is to say, the law of commandments contained in the law written, for to make of *twain one new man in himself, so making peace: and to reconcile both unto God in one body through his cross, and slew hatred thereby: and came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have an open way in, in one spirit unto the father.
Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners: but citizens with the saints, and of the household of God: and are built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ being the head corner stone, in whom every building coupled together, groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord, in whom ye also are built together, and made an habitation for God in the spirit
THE BOOK OF WISDOM Chpt 19
As for the ungodly, the wrath came upon them without mercy unto the end. For he knew before what should happen unto them: how that ( when they had consented to let them go, and had sent them out with great diligence ) they would not repent, and follow upon them. For when they were yet mourning and making lamentation by the graves of the dead, they devised another foolishness: so that they persecuted them in their fleeing, whom they had cast out afore with prayer. Worthy necessity also brought them unto this end, for they had clean forgotten the things that happened unto them afore. But the thing that was wanting of their punishment, was requisite so to be fulfilled upon them with torments: that thy people might have a marvelous passage through, and that these might find a strange death.
Then was every creature fashioned again of new according to the will of their maker, obeying thy commandments that thy children might be kept without hurt, for the cloud overshadowed their tents, and the dry earth appeared, where afore was water: so that in the reed sea there was a way without impediment, and the great deep became a green field: where through all the people went that were defended with thy hand, seeing thy wondrous and marvelous works. For as the horses, so were they fed, and leapt like lambs, praising thee ( O' Lord ) which haddest delivered them. And why? they were yet mindful of the things, that happened while they dwelt in the land: how the ground brought forth flies instead of cattle, and how the river crawled with a multitude of frogs instead of fishes.
But at the last they saw a new generation of birds, what time as they were deceived with lust, and desire for delicate meats. For when they were speaking of their appetite, the quails came up unto them from the sea, and punishments came upon the sinners not without tokens which came to pass afore by the vehemence of the streams: for they suffered worthily according to their wickedness, they dealt so abominably and *churlishly with strangers. Some received no unknown guests, some brought the strangers into bondage that did them good. Beside all these things there were some, that not only received no strangers with their wills, but persecuted those also, and did them much evil, that received them gladly. Therefore were they punished with blindness, like as they that were covered with sudden darkness at the doors of the righteous so that every one sought the entrance of his door. Thus the elements turned into themselves, like as when one time is changed upon an instrument of music, and yet all the residue kept their melody: which may easily be perceived, by the sight of the things that are come to pass. The dry land was turned into watery, and the thing that afore swam in the water, went now upon the dry ground. The fire hath power in the water ( contrary to his own virtue ) and the water forgot his own kind to quench. Again, the flames of the noisome beasts hurt not the flesh of them that went with them, neither melted they the ice, which else melted lightly. In all things hast thou promoted the people ( O' Lord ) and brought them to honor: thou hast not despised them, but alway and in all places hast thou stand by them
*churlishly (rude, boorish, miserly)
THE GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 17
And it chanced as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through Samaria and Galile. And as he entered into a certain town, there met him ten men that were lepers. Which stood afar off and put forth their voices and said: Jesu master, have mercy on us. When he saw them, he said unto them: Go and show yourselves unto the Priests. And it chanced as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was cleansed, turned back again, and with a loud voice praised God, and fell down on his face at his feet, and gave him thanks. And the same was a Samaritan. And Jesus answered and said: are there not ten cleansed? But where are those nine? There are not found that returned again, to give God praise save only this stranger. And he said unto him: arise, and go thy way thy faith hath made thee whole.
When he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come he answered them and said: The kingdom of God cometh not with waiting for. Neither shall men say: Lo here, lo there. For behold the kingdom of God is with in you.
And he said unto the disciples: The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one day of the son of man, and ye shall not see it. And they shall say to you: See here, See there. Go not after them, nor follow them, for as the lightning that appeareth out of the one part of the heaven: and shineth unto the other part of heaven. So shall the son of man be in his days. But first must he suffer many things, and be refused of this nation.
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 GOSPELL OF ST. LUKE Chpt 24
On the morrow after the Saboth, early in the morning, they came unto the tomb and brought the odours which they had prepared and other women with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre, and went in: but found not the body of the Lord *Jesu. And it happened, as they were amazed thereat: behold two men stood by them in shining vestures. And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said to them: why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here: but is risen. Remember how he spake unto you, when he was yet with you in Galile, saying: that the son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
And they remembered his words, and returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven and to all the remnant. It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary Jacobi, and other that were with them, which told these things unto the Apostles, and their words seemed unto them feigned things, neither believed they them. Then arose Peter and ran unto the sepulchre, and stooped in and saw the linen clothes laid by them self, and departed wondering in himself at that which had happened.
And behold, two of them went that same day to a town which was from Jerusalem about three score furlongs, called Emaus: and they talked together of all these things that had happened. And it chanced, as they communed together and reasoned, that Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. But their eyes were holden, that they could not know him. And he said unto them: What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another as ye walk, and are sad? And the one of them named Cleopas, answered and said unto him: art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which have chanced therein in these days? To whom he said: what things?
And they said unto him: of Jesus of Nazareth which was a Prophet, mighty in deed and word before God, and all the people. And how the high Priests, and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death: and have crucified him. But we trusted that it should have been he that should have delivered Israel. And as touching all these things today is even the third day, that they were done.
Ye, and certain women also of our company made us astonied, which came early unto the sepulchre, and found not his body: and came saying, that they had seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. And certain of them which were with us, went their way to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
And he said unto them: O' fools and slow of heart to believe all that the Prophets have spoken. Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And he began at Moses, and at all the Prophets, and interpreted unto them in all scriptures which were written of him. And they drew nigh unto the town which they went to. And he made as though he would have gone further. But they constrained him saying, abide with us, for it draweth towards night, and the day is far passed. And he went in, to tarry with them.
And it came to pass as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, blessed it, brake and gave to them. And their eyes were opened and they knew him: and he vanished out of their sight. And they said between them selves: did not our hearts burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and as he opened to us the scriptures? And they rose up the same hour, and returned again to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered to gether, and them that were with them which said: the Lord is risen in deed, and hath appeared to Simon. And they told what things was done in the way, and how they knew him in breaking of bread.
As they thus spake Jesus him self stood in the midst of them, and said unto them: peace be with you. And they were abashed and afraid, supposing that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them: Why are ye troubled, and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is even my self. Handle me and see: for spirits have not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and his feet. And while they yet believed not for joy and wondered, he said unto them: Have ye here any meat? And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honey comb. And he took it, and ate it before them.
And he said unto them. These are the words which I spake unto you while I was yet with you: that all must be fulfilled which were written of me in the law of Moses and in the Prophets, and in the Psalmes:
Then opened he their wits, that they might understand the scriptures, and said unto them: Thus is it written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise again from death the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, and must begin at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. And behold, I will send the promise of my father upon you. But tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
And he led them out into Bethany, and lift up his hands and blessed them. And it came to pass, as he blessed them, he departed from them, and was carried up into heaven. And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and were continually in the temple praising and lauding God: Amen

THE GOSPELL OF ST. JOHN Chpt 10
Verily, verily I say unto you: he that entereth not in by the door, into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way: the same is a thief and a robber. He that goeth in by the door, is the shepherd of the sheep: to him the porter openeth, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he hath sent forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but will fly from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. This similitude spake Jesus unto them. But they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them. Then said Jesus unto them again. Verily, verily I say unto you: I am the door of the sheep. All, even as many as came before me, are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be safe, and shall go in and out and find pasture. The thief cometh not but for to steal, kill and destroy. I am come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly.
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. An hired servant, which is not the shepherd, neither the sheep are his own, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and flyeth, and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hired servant flyeth, because he is an hired servant, and careth not for the sheep. I am that good shepherd, and know mine, and am known of mine. As my father knoweth me: even so know I my father. And I give my life for the sheep: and other sheep I have, which are not of this fold. Them also must I bring, that they may hear my voice, and that there may be one flock and one shepherd.
Therefore doth my father love me, because I put my life from me, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me: but I put it away of myself. I have power to put it from me, and have power to take it again: This commandment have I received of my father. And there was a dissension again among the Jewes for these sayings, and many of them said. He hath the devil, and is mad: why hear ye him? Other said, these are not the words of him that hath the devil. Can the devil open the eyes of the blind?
and other dreams of the same ...
"treat the stranger well..."
"be friendly to the worthy stranger..."
Chpt 13 The Epistle of St Paul Unto the Hebrews 2688
Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to lodge strangers. For thereby have diverse received angels into their houses unawares. Remember them that are in bonds, even as though ye were bound with them. Be mindful of them which are in adversity, as ye which are yet in your bodies. Let wedlock be had in price in all points, and let the chamber be undefiled for whorekeepers and *advoutrers God will judge.
*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. *laud (praise, honor)
