Reading Isaiah’s Mind Chapter Six verses 7 – 13**

7.  Then the seraph brought a curse (struck a blow ) against my mouth (voice; opinions feelings; priorities; requests; point of view; ) in keeping with a command he’d been given, so the Seraph said (declared; boasted) Behold (Here’s something kinda funny?)  This new turn of events touches (puts hands on; puts some pressure on;  acts-upon; impacts; effects in a morally-lousy way; damns; strikes a blow against; invokes a curse-upon) your foreordained-place (your-foreordination; your-appointment; your-anointing:   your-consecration; the holy-ordersImage result for stupid person gif conferred upon you) while a  personification-of-evil (an-embodiment-of-depravity; an-epitome of perversity) dwells with you (cohabits with you; lives with you; shares an address with you) and points-out (directs attention-to)  all of your short-comings (sins; faults; flaws; defects; deficiencies). My Melchizedek Priesthood Authority covers (expiates; pardons; forgives; atones-for; obliterates; abolishes) them. Then, I thought,What a clod (stupid-person)!”

send me

8.  Then the strength and power of God enabled me to hear the voice of the Lord, saying, I (Jehovah) have in mind who my strength and power as God shall send and who shall go-down-there (to the Earth; to the threshing floor; to the crushing process) on behalf of (for the sake of) us (our latter-day generation) . So, I replied, “Behold Me” (look and observe…I am here!) to go-down-there (be sent) for my generation.

9. So He (Jehovah) said (commanded; declared), “Go” (Make your way; Proceed; Betake yourself) and bring some incriminating evidence to light about (bear-forth; throw light upon; shed light upon; reveal; disclose; illuminate) the much-discussed matter of  “Authority” for  this foolish “bunch” (breed; species; family) of Mormons.   The testimonies of Mormon priesthood authorities are nothing but rumors (speculation; hearsay; gossip; talks) but they never explain (declare; admit; acknowledge; clarify) that to the people. Mormon “prophets seers and revelators” (as they refer to each other) claim to see (have visions of; prophecy) things, but Mormon priesthood authorities aren’t acquainted with (haven’t witnessed; aren’t familiar with; don’t see; don’t know; don’t understand; don’t check-out;  don’t study; don’t examine) anything about Jehovah for-themselves (personally; on their own).

The eyes of this generation are closed, otherwise, they would see (recognize) with their own eyes and really hear (comprehend) with their own ears  (capacity to judge and evaluate-things) for themselves, then their hearts would understand (get-the-picture; understand the “real” meaning of the situation without the need for further explanation), then turn around (change course; return; repent) and be healed (restored to good mental/spiritual health) for the sake of their souls.

11. But, I asked (inquired; wanted to know), “Until when” (For how long; How much time do I need; How long will it take) Lord?”  Then, he said, “Until such time (until the time when)  the leadership of Salt Lake’s “Glue-factory” (mothering influence;  Melchizedek Priesthood Organization) lies-in-ruins (is completely dismantled), and their citadel (headquarters; command-center) is collapsed  (demolished; crumbled),  so there are no remains (remaining kings) in Salt Lake’s house (dynasty; lineage of hereditary rulers) because there are no more Edomites  (worldly Mormon leaders) for their land (culture; brotherhood; society; breeding) of “Authority” is ravaged (severely damaged; devastated) and Jehovah expels (banishes; exiles; deports; drives-out; throws-out) the human race  (“fallen-man”; mankind) so there’s a palpable (perceptible; unmistakable) sense of being forsaken (abandoned; disowned; forgotten; ignored) by God,  in the midst of the Mormon Church

The seed (heirs; descendants; posterity; scions) of holiness (saintliness; angelic-character) is in its stump (main-stem)  of the family-tree left projecting from the ground after most of the family-tree; (lineage; bloodline; dynasty; a line of hereditary rulers) has fallen or has been cut-down.

* Terebinth tree – The elah tree, most often translated as “terebinth”, bears the Latin name Pistacia palaestina, meaning it is related to the Image result for terebinth treepistachio tree. Many famous trees in the Hebrew Bible are terebinths, for example, the tree under which Jacob buried Laban’s idols (Gen. 35:4) and the tree in Orpah under which the angel who visited Gideon sat (Judg. 6:11). The most famous appearance of an elah in the Bible is the Valley of Elah where the battle of David and Goliath took place (1 Sam. 17). Presumably, the valley got its name due to a large number of elah trees that grew here in the past.

You may, however, find that less thanImage result for praying mantis enlightening! Sooth is an archaic word meaning “truth” or “reality” that dates from Old English and was used until about the first half of the 17th century. (It is believed to share an ancestor with words suggesting truthfulness and reality in Old Norse, Greek, Old High German, Sanskrit, Latin, and Gothic languages.) Soothsayer itself has been documented in print as far back as the 14th century. Today, it is also a moniker of the insect the mantis, whose name means “prophet” in Greek. After Ronald Reagan nearly followed in Caesar’s assassinated footsteps in 1981, Nancy Reagan sought the advice of psychic Joan Quigley, whom she had met on The Merv Griffin Show several years earlier. According to Time, no Presidential appearance was made without first consulting Quigley to see if stars aligned or not. For instance, “For the Reagan-Gorbachev Washington summit, she cast the charts of both men and determined that 2 p.m. on Dec. 8, 1987, was the most propitious moment for them to sign the intermediate-range nuclear forces treaty. At Nancy’s behest, the entire summit was built around that hour.” When the news broke that the Reagans were using a psychic, the activity was quickly hushed up.

Reading Isaiah’s Mind Chapter Nine verses 1 – 10**

……”For Unto Us a Child is Born”……

1. Mormon-people  (Israelite people;  rank and file Mormons) have, for a very long time,  walked-in-darkness (tolerated-partial or totalImage result for The-Shadow-of-Death absence of spiritual-light; lacked revelation originating from Jehovah). But, all of a sudden (unexpectedly; all at once; without warning)   they are seeing (witnessing; beholding; perceiving; becoming aware and conscious of; coming to realize and understand) great (extraordinary)  light (divine-communication; revelation). Dawn is breaking upon those who’ve until now, been forced to live (“go-along;  get-along”; struggle; stumble-around) in the land (Mormon-Kingdom) of Darkness (Sorcery; Black-Magic; “The-Shadow-of-Death”).

shepherd
Pictured here is a very typical middle-eastern shepherd with his “Staff” (scepter; rod; “walking stick”;  a symbol of authority) upon which he is leaning. He uses it to protect his flock against predators, a “prod” to nudge the sheep in the direction he wants for them and to his sheep, it represents his authority over those who he loves and protects. It is not elaborate nor is it covered with gold and accented with precious stones. The staff is simply a token (symbol; mark) of the man’s work and a tool to help him accomplish it. 

3. Indeed (if truth be told) Salt Lake Melchizedek Priesthood leaders have-in-mind (are obsessed with; are continually preoccupied with) Israel’s yoke (covenantal-obligations; commitments; couplings; bonds; ties; ligatures) of slavery (bondage; enslavement; servitude) and their minds are consumed  (absorbed; eaten-up; dominated; preoccupied) by an uncontrollable (out-of-control; wayward) compulsion  (duress; coercion) to hold (grasp; carry; bear; wield) Israel’s sceptre (symbolic ornamental staff; rod;  authority) as an emblem (symbol; token mark) of royal (imperial) insignia (badge; distinguishing mark of rank or office).   In a figurative sense, rod (staff; scepter)  means tribal-authority and sovereignty.  Salt Lake’s men want Israel’s “rod” (staff; “walking stick scepter) as a means to give priority to  (stress; emphasize; highlight) the oppressors (taskmasters; tyrants; subjugators; slave-drivers; sadistic-presiding-priesthood-leaders) officiating in Salt Lake’s Melchizedek Priesthood Organization. Behold (observe; notice; see),  Salt Lake’s “break-down” (prostration; complete-subjugation) as in the day (Old-Testament time; era) of “The Defeat of Midian”* (In Hebrew, the meaning of Midian is: “contention” or “brawling). 

* The Knock-out (defeat) of Midian” – In the Old Testament, an army of some 15,000 Midianites invaded Israel for the purpose of “hijacking” their food supplies. A judge by the name of Gideon calledImage result for Gideon against the midianites the Israelites “to the colors” (to the legal claim, as to a right or office) Some 30,000 showed up to form an army that was probably large enough to defeat the Midianites. Gideon was told by God to “downsize” his army by telling the volunteers that anyone who was afraid or “indisposed” to fight could go home. About two-thirds, or 20,000 did so, leaving Gideon with about 10,000 men, a smaller, but more “select” (choice; expert) army than the Midianites had, because it had “sluffed” (eliminated) its weakest men. God further told Gideon to take his remaining troops to the river to drink. Most drank by burying their face in the water, (like animals) but a few knelt, and used their hands to lift water to their mouths. Gideon was told to use only the latter few, some 300 in all. These were supposedly the equivalent of “special-forces” (elite-forces) picked by God. When they went to battle, they used unusual “shock and awe” tactics, blowing trumpets, flashing torches, and throwing stones noisily, rather than standard assault tactics using sword and spear. Were these tactics, and the selection of 300 “cherry-picked” troops (1% of the original 30,000, 2% of the 15,000 Midianites, 3% of the later 10,000) at the heart of a “faith-based” military operation? Yes…because Gideon’s little band of elite soldiers won!

Lake’s soldiers is caked ( encrusted) with mud (allegations of corruption) and every garment (Mormon undergarment symboling the  Melchizedek Priesthood) is rolled (saturated; soaked; drenched) in the blood (slaughter) of Israel’s people,  so they will end-up (finish-up; become eventually; wind-up)  fuel for the burn pile.

For now and forever (the-present-time and throughout eternity) the zeal (great energy and enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause) of the Lord (commander-in-chief; captain;  master) of the Hosts (armies; legions; troops; multitudes) of heaven will accomplish this.

Isaiah’s indictment is delivered (brought; sent) to  Jacob (a lineage of defrauders), but it will alight (rest; depend) on Israel (those who are upright in the sight of God).

9. Salt Lake’s “Mud-Bricks” may well capitulate to Israel’s people, but “in a New York minute”  Salt Lake can replicate dressed-stones,  the faces (appearances; looks) of which, seem to be charming and ready for installation. Israel’s Fig (“cover-our-nakedness”) trees (families; lineages; bloodlines)  may well be felled (lost)  forever because we don’t care about them, but we will always replace (take the place of) Israel’s Cedar-trees.*

*.Cedar trees -The English word cedar comes from the Hebrew “Qatar,” meaning to smudge, indicating cedar wood was used in purification rituals and cleansing. In theImage result for Cedar of lebanon tree Himalayas, cedar is called “deodar” from the Sanskrit word “devdar,” meaning “timber-of-the-gods”; cedar trees (families; lineages) have been used for healing, purification and for spiritual protection. Its spiritual properties of Cedar trees (families of God; bloodlines of God; lineages of God) are supposed to promote peaceful thoughts and help interpret messages from God.

Reading Isaiah’s Mind Chapter Eight – verses 12 – 23**

12.  “You must not call our attempts to secure the safety of this generation of Israel’s people as  a plot even to condemning everything that we say to Israel’s people as part of some kind of conspiracy!”

But nevertheless (in spite of that; notwithstanding; all the same), Salt Lake’s presiding Melchizedek priesthood Authorities have-in mind (expect; savor the thought of; await; salivate over the idea of; anticipate; contemplate) one thing primarily for every Mormon (Israelite; rank and file Mormon, alike) which is to reverence (bow-down to; idolize; venerate; worship; glorify; dote-upon) them and them alone.  But,  don’t be intimidated (cowed; menaced; terrorized; frightened) by their numbers or by their impressive “Illusion-of-Power” and don’t allow yourselves to be overcome by the dread (worry; foreboding) that Salt Lake frequently inspires………

13. Keep in mind (be aware of the fact) that it is the “Lord (commander; Master) of the Hosts (armies) ofImage result for blink of an eye gif Heaven” who should be the object of  your reverence and He (Jehovah) is the one all of you should fear (revere) for He (Jehovah) is the one who can make all of you “fear and tremble”, in an instant (“in the blink of an eye”)

14. He (Jehovah) exists (lives; prevails; endures) to provide a “Sanctuary” (place of refuge and safety; haven; port in the storm; oasis; shelter) for Israel’s people, but he is also a “Stone-of-Stumbling” (circumstance that causes difficulty and hesitation; “stone-of Offense”; stumbling-block; obstruction; obstacle; barrier) for those whose lives are  “brought-to-ruin” for the sake of Salt Lake’s dastardly cause (enterprise; operation; venture; business; endeavor; project; undertaking;Image result for mousetrap clipart scheme; movement). They are determined (devoted; dedicated) to changing (mutating; altering; warping; converting) Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) ………a conversion (transformation), by the way,  that is nothing but a trap (enclosure designed to catch and retain Israelites, typically by allowing entry, but not exit) and as a snare (a type of noose) made from cords (bonds; friendships; ties; associations; partnerships; alliances; attachments; networks) for those remaining in (continuing to exist, especially after others have left or deserted) Jerusalem (“the Teachings of Peace and Salvation).

.”

.

15. Millions of  Israel’s people in this generation are tripped-up” (duped; beguiled; Image result for falling into a trapdeceived; seduced) , and they fall (are-captured; are nabbed; are-caught; are taken as “prisoners-of-war”),  so this generation of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership can “break-the Spirit”(destroy the self-esteem) of  Israel’s-people (rank and file Mormons), then it’s easy for them to take (lay hold of with power; reach for and hold; kidnap; commandeer; catch; captivate; hypnotize; spell-bind; mesmerize; enthrall) them.

.* “Break-the Spirit” – To  “break someone’s spirit” is to destroy their self-esteem, to take away their joy  in life, their belief and joy in who they are, to take away their dreams and the life they had hoped for, and to have them emotionally beaten down to the point  where they go from being who they were to someone who has lost all hopes and dreams of the person they had once been.  Breaking someone’s spirit is accomplished thru mental and emotional abuse. When a person’s spirit is broken, they often feel that that they aren’t deserving  of joy, or they may have even totally lost all hope or desire for happiness; it’s a feeling of total emotional defeat.

16. So-then, Stir-up (revive; rouse; kindle; awaken; provoke; animate; fan the fire of; arouse) the testimonyRelated image (attestation; witness; confirmation; corroboration; declarations about truth) among Israel’s people …..seal-up (shut-up; “set a seal upon” *; “lock-up”; “hide a correct interpretation of”; place a lock upon) the Torah (instruction; Law; “the-Oracle”) to everyone except  my true-disciples………

.set a seal-upon” –  “Isaiah’s vision of everything“, i.e.  –  the entire substance of Isaiah’s teaching. The words imply that the “Isaiah’s vision” had to be committed to writing, but to the “unbeliever” Isaiah’s words might as well have been “a sealed-book.” The same imagery meets us in Revelation 5:2.   The learned (having much knowledge acquired by study) including Rabbi’s of the ancient world regarded  “dark-sayings” (enigmatic, mysterious and difficult to understand language, literary-devices and “sayings”) as “seals”  (locks; barriers; prohibitions), which forbade them from making any attempt to study (clarify; scrutinize; research)  them. The poorer unlearned class could plead a more genuine and less guilty ignorance because, from the very start, they just couldn’t figure any of it out, so the “closed” (shut; locked; out-of-service)  effect of Isaiah’s words was the same with both learned and unlearned, alike. Isaiah’s genius with literary-devices (techniques that Isaiah used to produce a special effect in his writing) produced a “skittish” (fearful), yet deliberate (willful) reactive-ignorance among the “so-called” learned-class in reaction to Isaiah’s extraordinary skill in the use of literary-devices (“Dark-Sayings”). As a result, even the earliest rabbi’s and Jewish scholars believed that it was contrary to the will of God to attempt to examine, alter; change; correct or otherwise clarify the meaning of Isaiah’s Vision.   Examples of literary devices are flashbacks, analogies, allusions; euphemisms; metaphors; similes; personifications; dictions and epigraphs.

18. Here I am,  accompanied by the children (offspring; progeny) who’ve been given (appointed; ascribed; assigned) unto me,  by Jehovah,  as a means for Israel’s people to keep-in-mind (mentally hold-on-to; remain-determined; memorize; cling-to; bear-in-mind; remember) to secure  (recover; reclaim; retake; restore; regain; get-back) their God-given authority, and become expert (talented; outstanding; excellent; exceptional; accomplished; adept; skilled) in the “Performance-of-Miracles” among the people of Israel,  as a result of an intimate relationship  (mutual-attachment; matrimonial-bond; close-tie; marriage-union; close-companionship; solidarity; affinity; “Oneness”; fellowship) with the Lord of Hosts…………..the “God” who dwells (abides; is-settled; lodges; lives; remains; resides)  in Mt. (an abbreviation for: “mountain” meaning: “administration”; command; direction; management; operations) of “Zion” (a 40 year long directed trek thru a “desolate-place” or “emotional-wilderness”  in search of “Living Water”). This experience is uniquely qualifying in its difficulty but it is also a fixture * Related image(something secure and permanent) associated with the House (dynasty; a line of hereditary-rulers) of Israel that guarantees legitimate-succession (inheritance of a royal title, inheritance of royal-office) forever (throughout Eternity).

.* fixture – In a legal sense, a fixture is described as “personal-property or qualification” (guiding-pillar; a signal; a guiding light a beacon; a lighthouse) that is securely and forever connected to a structure (house; dynasty; a line of hereditary rulers) by means of attachment or part of an estate and may be inherited by subsequent generations. Any “guiding-pillar” serves more purposes than one; but without doubt the purpose noted by Moses is principally intended. It was the signal by which the Lord guided the march of the tribes (Nehemiah 9:12, 19Psalm 78:14). Some such signal was absolutely necessary. To direct the march of a nation through the wilderness was no easy matter. When Alexander the Great led his army across the wide levels of Babylonia he caused a grating filled with a blazing fire to be borne aloft on a long pole, that its smoke might guide the march by day, and its fire by night. A similar device is constantly made use of by the caravans which make the pilgrimage to Mecca. The march of the tribes from Egypt had the Lord himself for its Guide, and the cloud of his presence showed the way. No feature of the long march has more deeply impressed itself on the imagination of the Israel’s people than this “guiding-pillar”. It has been instinctively accepted as a sign in which we too may claim an interest.

19. Notwithstanding (in spite of the fact)  that Salt Lake declares-unto (counsels; advises; urges)  all of you (Israel’s people ; rank and file Mormons) to, “Follow-Image result for devil whispering in a man's ear clipartthe-Prophet” (obey Salt Lake’s leading-sorcerer; obey Mormonism’s chief magician) and his familiar-spirits * (demons; evil-spirits and devils, who maintain complete power) over every Mormon prophet and apostle, and, as a result,  are ready (poised; willing and able; committed; eager) to obey his commands………they are the ones who whisper in every Mormon prophet’s ear ……… and they are the ones who  mutter (talk under their breath; speak in undertones) to him, in secret.

* Familiar -spirits – The word “familiar” is from the Latin familiaris, meaning a “household servant,” and is intended to express the idea that sorcerers had evil-spirits as their servants ready to obey their commands. Those attempting to contact the dead, even to this day, usually claim to have some sort of “spirit guide” who communicates with them. These are “familiar-spirits”!  (Leviticus 19:31 ; 20:6 , 27); and (Deuteronomy 18:9-14) both refer to “mediums and familiar spirits” and forbids being involved with them, as consulting them is an abomination (an-atrocity; a disgrace; a-horror; an outrage; a crime) to the Lord. A “medium” is one who acts as a liaison to supposedly contact or “Communicate with the dead on behalf of the living”
 If truth be told, mediums are contacting demons who convince the mediums that they are “familiar” ( servants of their household) and can be trusted and believed. The practices associated with mediums and familiar spirits were banned in Israel, and the punishment for practicing such things was death. Familiar spirits and spirit guides are under the control of their master, Satan. They influence people to spread lies and deceit in order to thwart the kingdom of God. To knowingly open oneself to the work of demons is an evil thing: “Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in [a] fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD” (Deuteronomy 18:10-12a). Some avenues through which demons or “familiar spirits” can gain entrance into a person’s life are divination, transcendental meditation, visualization, necromancy, witchcraft, drugs, and alcohol. These are all activities that believers are exhorted to avoid. Instead, we are to be filled with the Holy Spirit, with love, with joy, and with the fullness of life that comes from Jesus Christ. We are also to be on guard, “for our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12).

20. And incidentally (parenthetically), shouldn’t the order (pattern; method) instead be…..

……. “Those who are “alive” (in a spiritual senseImage result for criminal-indictment) may inquire (ask) of God on behalf of (for the sake of) those who are “dead” (lifeless, no-longer-alive; inert; expired; non-existent; perished; wasted) in a spiritual sense?  With regard to the Torah (instruction; law)……...whosoever among Salt Lake’s Priesthood Authorities refusing (is unwilling) to concede (accept; confess) the “truth” in accordance (agreement)  with this “word” (“formal-charges-of-“fraud and embezzlement”; criminal indictment), there is (will be) no Millennial-dawn (“Millennial-day-break”; Millennial-sunrise;  Millennial-sun-up;  Millennial-first-light; “Millennial-day”) for (with regard to) him.

21. Publicly (openly”; for the sake of “Public-Relations”; so as to be seen as solicitous, concerned, caring) by the general public, these “oblivious” (spiritually-dead; spiritually-“lifeless”; deaf, dumb and blind; heedless; ignorant) Salt Lake prophets and apostles  roam (travel-about; wander-about; rove-about; ramble-about; drift-about; traipse-about;Image result for shaking one's fist at God clipart tramp-about; cruise-around; mosey-around; walk-around in a leisurely manner) throughout a distressed (anxious; troubled; impoverished) and hungry (ravenous; empty; faint with hunger; starving; famished) world (general-membership of the Mormon kingdom)  . But, in private (behind-closed-doors; “behind-their-green-curtain”), these imposters (Salt Lake presiding high-priests who are pretending  to be Jehovah’s prophets in order to deceive others, especially for fraudulent gain) become enraged (furious; incensed), then look toward the heavens and shake-their-fists,  and throw-a-temper-tantrum (“have a fit; “curse their king and their God; have outbursts of childish anger, frustration and ill-temper)  when their own  (personal; perverted; individual) cravings  (pangs of hunger; appetites; lusts; urges) go unsatisfied (un-met; unfulfilled).

.

 

.

22. So, in the day when Salt Lake’s priesthood authorities finally look for some source of pride (a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from Israelite-qualities and Israelite-possessions that are widely admired) amongImage result for depression the inhabitants (population) of the Earth (The kingdom of Mormonism), only then,  will they appreciate (understand-fully; recognize-the-full-implications-of) the distress (anguish; agony; heartbreak; heartache; suffering; trouble; tribulation) and dark (inky; jet-black; pitch-black) gloom (“sense-of-unworthiness”; depression; despondency; dejection; melancholia; unhappiness; misery; woe) and obscurity (misfortune) suffered by Israelites who’ve been ostracized  (excluded; shunned; given-the-“cold-shoulder”;  ignored; “left-out-in-the-cold”; deprived of involvement in Israel’s own leadership) by Salt Lake’s Melchizedek priesthood organization.

23. But on the other hand, there’s no gloom (state of depression or despondency), whatsoever, for presiding priesthood Authorities leaders, following Salt Lake’s lead (direction; example) who are “casting spells” (cursing; damning; bedeviling; bewitching; enchanting; giving-the-evil-eye-to) Israel’s people, so Israel’s people will become-acquainted-with (come to know; become-accustomed; learn;  live a life of; experience)  “hardness” (grimness; oppression; difficulty; cruelty; rigidity; strictness; sharpness; unkindness).  In-by-gone-days (in former generations; in the Old Testament) He (Jehovah) cursed the world (kingdom) of “Zebulon” (“living-illegally” and cohabitation without wedlock just to gain-short-term securityImage result for admiration cartoonsand the land (realm; people; kingdom) of Naphtali (constant-struggle and resistance against Jehovah; crookedness toward Jehovah); fraudulence toward Jehovah).  And, Lo and behold (a new turn of events, often with the suggestion that although surprising, it could have been predicted) “The-West” (the Salt Lake headquarters of Mormonism) is trying to get hold (control) this generation in order to point (focus everyone’s efforts upon; direct everyone’s attention to) present (portray) the  “Ways-of-the-West” to be  glorious (having a splendor that evokes feelings of delighted admiration) for Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) while they are on-the-way-to  (leading up to;  in the process of; along the way to) their spiritual-downfall (spiritual-collapse; spiritual-death; spiritual-downfall; spiritual-destruction; spiritual-break-down). They are prevented from operating (exercising authority) in any capacity, whatsoever, within the circles (coteries; cliques; company; bands; spheres; societies) of Salt Lake’s gentile (non-Israelite) priesthood hierarchy. Mormon-people  (Israelite people;  rank and file Mormons) have, for a very long time,  walked-in-darkness (tolerated-partial or totalImage result for The-Shadow-of-Death absence of spiritual-light; lacked revelation originating from Jehovah). But, all of a sudden (unexpectedly; all at once; without warning)   they are seeing (witnessing; beholding; perceiving; becoming aware and conscious of; coming to realize and understand) great (significant in magnitude)  light (revelation; divine-communication). Dawn is breaking upon those who’ve until now, been forced to live (“go-along to get-along”; struggle; stumble-around) in the land (Mormon-Kingdom) of Darkness (Sorcery; Black-Magic; “The-Shadow-of-Death”).
