earth
Haven’t all of youyou understood these things, in-light-of (drawing knowledge or information from) the foundations (underlying principles) governing the very (exact; precise; actual) creation of this earth, in the first place?

21. Don’t all of you already know this stuff?…..Haven’t all of you   already heard this stuff?…… Hasn’t this stuff been taught to all of you from the very-beginning (“get-go”; start; Genesis) Haven’t all of you understood these things, in-light-of (drawing knowledge or information from) the foundations (underlying principles) governing the very (exact; precise; actual) creation of this earth, in the first place ?

22. Men (General Authorities) are sitting enthroned inside Salt Lake’s bubble (fortunate situation that is isolated from reality or unlikely to last),  above (at a higher level than) the “sphere of this world” (realm of this world; vicissitudes of this world) to which a majority of Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) have long been accustomed and familiar, while men  who conform (behave according to socially acceptable conventions or standards; follow the crowd; toe the line) according to the leadership (guidance; direction; control; management)  of Salt Lake’s priesthood sphere (organization; world) can be compared to a worldwide swarm (plague) of  locust (grasshoppers) spreading  (setting-up; expanding; proliferating; disseminating)  their “breath”*  (character;  mental and moral qualities; name;  reputation) and their peculiar (characteristic; bizarre)  Salt Lake authority, like a 3-ring circus tent (bazaar; hippodrome; spectacle; “Big-Show”; marquee; “Big-Top”) in which Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) are to celebrate (observe; keep) the Sabbath.

* According to Ancient Hebrew thought, “Shem” -a man’s breath reveals a man’s character, i.e. the breath is an identifier and describer of a man’s character.  One of the major differences between the Modern Western mind and the Ancient Hebrew’s is that their mind related all words and their meanings to a concrete concept. For instance, the Hebrew word “chai” is normally translated as “life”, a western abstract meaning, but the original Hebrew concrete meaning of this word is the “stomach”. In the Ancient Hebrew mind, a full stomach is” a sign of a full “life”.

vanity
Salt Lake  produces (generates; provokes; engenders) vanity (conceit; narcissism; self-absorption;  egotism) among Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons).

23. Then they ascribe glory and strength to a generation of men who are wasted (fruitless; vain; worthless) and who’ve become deviates,  all for the sake of (thanks to; in the interest of; on behalf of) “Good-for-Nothing” (worthless) judges (General Authorities; magistrates; governors; rulers) over its Mormon kingdom (empire; corporation),  as they produce (generate; provoke; engender) vanity (destruction; conceit; narcissism; self-absorption;  egotism) among Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons).

they never give-up
whirlwind (violent action;  rapid movement)  of Mormon proselytizing  and solicitation (pursuit) will sweep (pull; drag; carry; tow) them away (off). Mormon missionaries are trained to never give up.

24. In-addition (furthermore; moreover; likewise), the hearts and minds of this entire (whole) generation of Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) are led-astray by them. Indeed (if truth be told; in-fact) “Nothing” (“a waste of time”; failure; “lack of success”; non-fulfillment; defeat; collapse) for Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)  is the only thing being sown by Salt Lake’s leadership. Indeed, “Ba’al” (the worship of husbands as “lords and masters” ; chief God of Babylon)  takes root in the Mormon kingdom as a means to cut down Israel’s people, then blow (create a current of hot-air)  upon them so they  dry-up (lose their moisture; wither; lose their vital strength),  then a whirlwind (violent action;  rapid movement)  of Mormon proselytizing (solicitationpursuit)  and indoctrination (conditioning; re-education; programming; brainwashing) can sweep (pull; drag; carry; tow) them away (off).

mask
Mormon priesthood leaders making “what they are” (their nature; themselves) appear to be something that they are not.

25. So unto (with) whom are you comparing (contrasting; juxtaposing; collating; differentiating) my seed and leaders making “what they are” (their nature; themselves) appear to be something that they are not?  ……..saith the Holy One.

26.  Haughty Salt Lake General Authorities are lifting (magnifying;  aggrandizing) themselves right before your eyes (right in front of you; in view; while you are watching). So, consider (contemplate; meditate-on; think about; ponder) this.  Who chose (selected; picked) these men to point (direct attention) to themselves as “bearers-of-light”* (Veins of wisdom; “Gate-ways-to-truth”; Fountains of revelation) with men (Old Testament prophets) who are numbered (called; counted; determined; fated; designated;  enumerated; indicated; named) to go forth as soldiers (to lead God’s Army) leading all of    Israel’s people with authority that they trumpet ( proclaim loudly and widely; celebrate; announce; shout from the roof-tops) because of their  great falsehood (lie; falsification; Cock and Bull Story) and constant pressure (harassment; enforcement; arm-twisting; intimidation; coercion) upon Mormon membership.  This generation of Salt Lake General Priesthood Authorities wants for nothing (gets everything it covets).

.* light-bearer – the name is the rendering of the Hebrew word הֵילֵל in (Isaiah 14:12) given in the King James Version. This Bible version took the word from the Latin Vulgate,  which translated הֵילֵל by the Latin word “lucifer”, meaning “morning star, the planet Venus”, or, as an adjective, “light-bringing”. The translation of הֵילֵל as “Lucifer”, as in the King James Version, has been abandoned in modern English translations of Isaiah 14:12. Present-day translations have “morning-star” , “day Star”, “shining one”  or “shining star”.

27. Jacob (defrauders) let me ask you…… toward what profit (advantage; financial-gain; favorable or superior position; benefit ) do you think among yourselves and plot against this generation of Israel’s people…… secretly (in a secret way; without others knowing)  treading-down (paying no attention to; turning a blind eye to; glossing-over; brushing-aside) work (activity involving mental or physical effort) inspired (stimulateed; motivated; encouraged; influenced) by Jehovah then pass-over (disregard; ignore; pay no attention to; pretend to not exist) any Mormon who worships (reveres; honors; pays homage to) the work (operation; end-product; application; function) of my judgement?

But Jehovah will change their capacity (substance) of those who are bound-by (wait upon; patiently wait upon; gathered-together-by ) Him,  so as to ascend upward through the air…………to soar (fly) like eagles (birds of prey).
