Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter 39 – verses 1 thru 8

Envoys From Babylon 1.  By this time (already; up-’til-now; thus; so-far) Salt Lake high priests have taken-possession of (tread-upon; fragmented; splintered; broken-up into small parts, typically as the result of impact or decay) you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons) in order to send (dispatch to a particular destination; arrange for the arrival of messengers) prominent (important; famous) but “old-school” (old-fashioned) and […]

Envoys From Babylon

evil overlord yes1.  By this time (already; up-’til-now; thus; so-far) Salt Lake high priests have taken-possession of (tread-upon; fragmented; splintered; broken-up into small parts, typically as the result of impact or decay) you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons) in order to send (dispatch to a particular destination; arrange for the arrival of messengers) prominent (important; famous) but “old-school” (old-fashioned) and “worn-out” (extremely tired; exhausted) Salt Lake priesthood authorities who are sons (students; apprentices)  in Salt Lake’s feudal-tenure* system , on conditions-of  “homage” and “allegiance” to “their” overlords, who are called….. “Baladan” (“old-school”Melchizedek priesthood leaders, whose resources are completely used-up, receive absolutely no inspiration whatsoever and yet still remain important and famous). These “reprobates” (“good-for-Nothings”; wretches; villains; moral-degenerates) are the “kings” (royalty; supreme-rulers; crowned-heads) of “Babylon” (confusion; lack of understanding; uncertainty; misrepresentation; mix-up).   

* feudal-tenure – Feudal tenure is a real-estate (property) ownership system in which ownership rests with a sovereign (overlord; suzerain) who may grant lesser-interests (subordinate-vassals) in return (exchange) for “service” or “loyalty”. Every estate held by feudal tenure was subject to forfeiture for breach of the conditions on which it was granted.

(continuation of verse #1)
bated breath
Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) listen with “bated-breath” to reports (rumors) that the consciences of Salt Lake’s Melchizedek Priesthood Authorities have been stabbed (cut-to-the quick; pricked; pierced)  by sharp-criticizm, humiliating-censure and cutting-accusations,  but they are restrained (held-back; kept-under-control) by the “Patriarchal-handshake” (the “patriarchal-grip”) to refrain (stop-themselves; forbear) from vengeance. 

Describe (give an account in words, including all the relevant characteristics, qualities, or events) concerning Salt Lake’s Melchizedek Priesthood Authorities and those who are currently guiding (leading; teaching; training; turning; directing) Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)  to Hezekiah (“continue holding-fast to Salt Lake’s witness of God”) and of course (naturally; as might be expected)  Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) listen with “bated-breath” * to reports (rumors) that the consciences of Salt Lake’s Melchizedek Priesthood Authorities have been stabbed (cut-to-the quick; pricked; pierced)  by sharp-criticizm and cutting-accusations,  but they are being restrained (kept-under-control) by a-strong-patriarchal handshake” (the ‘Patriarchal Grip” ) to refrain-from (stop-themselves; forbear) vengeance. 

* bated-breath“Bated” is a form of “abate,” which means “to diminish, to hold or reduce.” So when you’re waiting with bated (abated) breath, you’re so eager, anxious, excited, or frightened that you’re almost “holding your breath”. That set phrase, “with-bated-breath,” is the only place you’ll hear “bated” used these days.

palm of the hand
To “have people in the palm of your hand” means: to have complete power over them so that they do what you tell to do.

2. And, Hezekiah  (“Mormons holding fast to Salt Lake’s witness of God” ) will be so taken (anamored; swept-off-their-feet; charmed; enchanted; impressed) by Salt Lake’s false-show (pretense; deceptive appearance) of remorse and sorrow  that Salt Lake will consequently lift (promote to higher rank and status) Hezekiah (“Mormons holding fast to Salt Lake’s witness of God”), but actually (if truth be told; really)  Salt Lake’s priesthood authorities only  have-in-mind (want to have) Hezekiah “in the palm of their  hand” (completely under their control; totally at their command)…….having-in-mind (having their eye on) Hezekiah’s silver (financial-resources; money)…….and having-in-mind (having their eye on) Hezekiah’s gold (sparkle; twinkle; “brightness”) and having-in-mind (coveting) their sweet-scent  (fresh-aroma) and having-in-mind (having their eye on) Hezekiah’s anointing (consecration;  blessing; ordination) to point (direct everyone’s attention) toward “good” (goodness; doing-good; what is good) and  having-in-mind (wanting to have) the entire world-wide Mormon kingdom tamed to the yoke (control; exploitation) of this generation of Salt Lake rulers and having-in-mind (coveting) anything and everything which this generation of Israelites attains (finds; acquires) while Mormon Priesthood leaders lock-the-door (prevent-access; guarantee no access; secure the barrier; maintain the barricade ; prolong the roadblock) to authority in the face of  (in contempt for; having no regard for)  Israel’s people then throw-away (disregard; pay no attention to; ignore) the “key” (explanation; cipher; interpretation; translation) regarding the rights of this generation of Israel’s people without bringing-to-pass (bringing-forth; producing; generating) a careful (paintaking; meticulous; scrupulous; diligent, thorough, and extremely detailed) arrangement (placement in an all-important order) of Jehovah’s-words , and by so doing,

hubris
Cocksure is thought to mean presumptuously or arrogantly confident. It’s origin reveals a unexpected connection with a firearm “COCK-SURE, i.e.”certain”: is a metaphor borrowed from the “cock-of-a-firelock”, as being much more certain to fire than the match.”

create a quintessential situation in which God’s words are in their correct or appropriate placement.  And…. you can safely “bet-your-bottom-dollar” (“bet-the-farm”; stake-everything; risk-everything-you-own) on the speculation that  Salt Lake will NEVER, under any circumstances, point-to  (direct everyone’s attention-to; focus everyone’s-attention; explain; reveal) relevant facts concerning the sudden (“out-of-the-blue”; unusual; unexplained) lift (elevation to higher positions of Hezekiah (“Mormons holding fast to Salt Lake’s witness of God”) within their kingdom and throughout their cocksure (certain; irrefutable; indisputable; unquestioned) religious dominion (government; jurisdiction).

pointing the way
Isaiah’s indictment explains why why Mormons are challenged (invited to engage in an activity) to point (direct everyone’s attention; focus everyone’s attention) toward desperately-wicked (unredeemable; incorrigible; hopeless; unrepentant; irretrievable) Mormon leaders pointing  (extending their  finger) ,  to a binding covenant which includes a brutal (“life-threatening”; savage; throat-cutting) curse for violating its stipulations. 

3. The prophesy (indictment) of Isaiah (Salvation thru Jehovah) will be brought-forth (presented) unto Salt Lake’s presiding Melchizedek Priesthood leaders (Mormonism’s sovereign kings; Mormon-General-Authorities) who preside (are in positions of authority over)  Hezekiah (“Mormons holding fast to Salt Lake’s testimony of their God”) for it sheds light upon (brings to light) for this generation of Israel’s people…why Mormons are continually challenged (invited to engage in  activities) pointing (directing everyone; leading everyone) toward desperately-wicked (unredeemable; incorrigible; hopeless; unrepentant; irretrievable) Salt Lake representatives (ambassadors) who guide Israel’s people by extending their finger to a binding-(contractual) covenant (agreement; treaty; pact; deal) “with the Devil” which (by-the-way) includes a brutal (savage; goary; gruesome) curse (penalty; cutting of one’s throat)  for violating its stipulations. So,  one must ask……..from  exactly (precisely) whence (what source; fountainhead; derivation; “father”; instigator) have these…”oh…so…religious” representatives (ambassadors) come unto you (Israel’s people;  rank and file Mormons)?     Then,  Hezekiah (“Mormons holding fast to Salt Lake’s testimony of their God”) replied (countered; responded) “From a far-away-region (“Out-west”; the Salt Lake-Valley)…..they’ve come (arrived) to pass-on (transmit; transfer; convey) their corrupt (contaminated; cursed)  blood (gene-pool; DNA) unto the next-generation (subsequent-seed; subsequent-offspring) of Babylon”. (confusion; mix-up;  misrepresntation; fraud;  false and misleading appearances).

palace
The concept of a “palace” expresses the official residence of a sovereign (king) or other exalted-person. But the word “palace” also designates a royal-dynasty (lineage or bloodline of hereditary royalty) to which persons of royal status belong. 

4. Hezekiah  (“Mormons holding fast to Salt Lake’s testimony of their God”) were asked, “And…what did these Mormon ambassadors see (espy; notice; glimpse; catch-sight-of; distinguish) amidst your  large, splendid Israelite house (dynasty of hereditary rulers; royal-palace)?  And Hezekiah (“Mormons holding fast to Salt Lake’s testimony of their God”) responded, having-in-mine (keeping in mind)  “They saw everything that there is to see in the palace. There isn’t anything that wasn’t shown to them among our treasures”

5. Then Isaiah (Salvation thru Jehovah) declared unto Hezekiah (“Mormons still holding-fast to Salt Lake’s witness of God”), “Hear the Word of the Lord of Hosts!

black hole
black hole is an absolute negative-force (undoing of physical properties and existence) exhibiting such powerful gravity that nothing—not even particles or light can escape from inside it. The theory of general-relativity predicts that a sufficiently compressed mass (body of coherent words) of a physical entity can so alter gravity as to form a black hole. The boundary of the region from which no escape is possible is called the “event-horizon”. Although the event horizon has an enormous effect on the fate and circumstances of an object crossing it, no locally detectable features appear to be observed. In many ways a black hole acts like an ideal dark-black body that eats-light (devours-light; consumes-light; swallows-light)  completely (totally)  as it mirrors (resembles; shows in a very clear and accurate way; reflects) absolutely no truth (light; intelligence) whatsoever. 

6.  Lo…and behold (a new “turn-of-events”, often with the suggestion that although surprising, it could in fact have been predicted) Terrible (extremely-wicked) men from the West (Salt Lake City)  will return (enter your house; father offspring by your daughters) as a means to feed (augment; maintain; strengthen; sustain; nourish; supply power necessary for the survival and operation of) the supermassive-void (supermassive-vacuum; supermassive-emptiness; supermassive-nothingness; supermassive-“black-hole”; supermassive-abyss; supermassive-“pit-of-hell”) that ocupies them and has consumed the very light (intelligence; truth) radiating fromof  their souls thus,  they will lead-astray (carry-off; delude; deceive; seduce; utterly-beguile) every-soul in the midst of your magnificent house (“dynasty of hereditary rulers”; royal-palace) and every one who your forefathers (ancestors; members of the past generations of your family or people; ancestors) have treasured (adored; held-dear; loved; cherished) throughout all of their lives, even to this very day. “Babylon (confusion; fraud; mix-up; misrepresentation; falsification) will leave no good-cause” (healthy-belief; real-faith; honest-ideal; true-purpose; principle worth defending) to remain!” saith the Lord.

Donkey work
The term “Donkey work “refers to drudgery, i.e. hard, menial, or dull work.

7. Then, originating (starting; emerging; emanating)  with your descendants (seed; family; successors; scions) a tightly-bound (taut; strong; firm; unbreakable; rigid; inflexible) cord (bond; connection; affiliation; point-of-attachmen; “umbilicus”; link; partnership; network) will issue-out-of (proceed from) them thru the might (great and impressive power) of Salt Lake City as a means to bend (stoop; hunch; prostrate) you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons) “to-the-ground” in total-submission. They will turn you into a generation of eunuchs (ineffectual-people; , impotent-people; unproductive-people; weak-people; hopeless-people) to do all the “donkey-work” (drudgery; hard, menial, or dull work)  within the palace (empire; jurisdiction; dominion; realm) of the king (royalty; crowned-heads) of Babylon (confusion misrepresentation fraud; mix-up).

.

TKS8. Then, Hezekiah (“Mormons still holding-fast to Salt Lake’s testimony of their God”) responded concerning Isaiah (“Salvation thru Israel’s God, Jehovah”), It is the good (useful;valuable; bebeficial; all-purpose; effective; practical)  “Word of the Lord” that speaks, therein, so they thought to themselves , “Indeed (finally; for-sure!).. there is peace and security in my days (in my life).
