Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter 42 – verses 11 – 20

11. Let them proceed and make a big noise (a big hullabaloo; a lot of commotion; a bluster; a lot of small-talk; spread a lot of gossip; spread a lot of rumors; tell a lot of “feel-good” stories; tell a lot of worthless anecdotal stories) that are well-suited (adapted; fit; useful) to feed their captive Israelite flocks and […]
fortress
Mormonism’s Rocky Mountain Fortress

11. Let them proceed and make a big noise (a big hullabaloo; a lot of commotion; a bluster; a lot of small-talk; spread a lot of gossip; spread a lot of rumors; tell a lot of “feel-good” stories; tell a lot of worthless anecdotal stories) that are well-suited (adapted; fit; useful) to feed their captive Israelite flocks and put them to shame (overthrow their dynastic houses; suck the life out of them; defoliate their family-trees; empty their vessels) and nullify (compromise; weaken; overthrow) their defenses (precincts; enclosure). Mormon General Authorities are reigning with filthy (dirty; foul) garments, over Israel’s people (rank and file Mormon people). Let them go ahead and sing (celebrate shout; make their tinkling-sound). Let them reign (sit in judgment) in the heights of their Rocky Mountain fortress (their valley surrounded by lofty mountains; “Petra”  “rock” – a metaphor for God, himself) from the summit (apex; heights; pinnacle; acme; zenith; LDS headquarters) of Mormonism,  in Utah’s Rocky mountains.  Let them be “sunny and bright”  (glowing; scintillating; sparkling; exciting; dynamic; vivacious).

12. Let them continue to call (name; designate; appoint) themselves unto the  glory (honor; dignity) of Jehovah and extol (magnify; laud; congratulate; glorify; idolize; celebrate; canonize; credit)  themselves in their cozy (comfortable; secure; luxurious) dwelling-places in the Salt Lake Valley.  Let them continue to bind (couple; seal; yoke; join; unite) their family-trees (lineages; ancestries; bloodlines; houses) together.

tower of babel
Tower of Babel means a lofty organization of confusion and misrepresentation

13. They march out (go forth; emerge) like Jehovah’s fighting-cocks (champions; heroes; conquering heroes; perfect examples; paragons of virtue; celebrities; American Idols; matinee-idols; pop-stars; grand poobah’s; demigods; godlings) pretending to be intrepid (fearless; courageous) “warrior-kings”. They arouse (generate; incite; instigate; inflame; stimulate) ardor (enthusiasm; eagerness; rapture; ecstasy; zeal; lust) and oomph (animation; excitement; a glow; passion; devotion) among their disciples. But, if the truth be told, they are  dissemblers (hypocrites; “used-car-salesmen”; frauds; “snakes in the grass; impostors; “wolves in sheep’s clothing”; liars). Furthermore, they are building an impenetrable  tower (refuge; pyramid; citadel; Bastille; stronghold; acropolis)  which functions just like the ancient  “Tower of Babylon”. (Babylon means confusion and misrepresentation) to defend themselves against their most-feared (dreaded)  enemies (foes; adversaries ; rivals opponents) – “The people of Israel”.  Let them think (suppose; assume; imagine)  that they are will prevail.

.

14. I have remained (kept) silent (still; quiet) , for a very long time, but now, I am hot with anger (inflamed; infuriated seething; fuming). I have withheld my judgment (temper; force; punishment; emotions) as if I was bearing a child, but now I am crying-out ( calling out; speaking- up; expressing myself).  I am yearning for (aching for ; languishing for ; panting for ; wanting with all my heart) communion (interaction; harmony; solidarity; amity; friendship; dialogue) with Israel’s people.

.

howlers15. It is my will (intention; determination; command; decree; prescription) to lay-waste (destroy; desolate; devastate; ravage; despoil; demolish) Mormonism and its top-level Melchizedek priesthood leaders,  that who illicitly exalt themselves as “Kings of Israel” and to “Mormon Godhood”,  as well as Salt Lake’s high-society (elite society; chosen society of LDS Church leaders and their polygamist wives) and all their provender (fodder; sustenance; nourishment ; sources of revenue and political support). I will dry-up (stop the source of ) their gladness ( (happiness; cheer) and turn this generation of Salt Lake Priesthood leaders into criers (howlers; mourners). I will starve-out (shrink; constrict; buckle) their corruption.

.

 

16. I will conduct those who are  blind (naive; cannot see; unaware) in ways (courses; paths) unfamiliar to them , along a narrow  “footpath” (trail; walkway; foot-way; common narrow wooded footpath) that they never knew existed,  leading upward gradually at a 3 degree incline, slow but steady,   ultimately leading each of them to a glorious destiny.

cocksure
Salt Lake’s cocksure attitude

17. This generation of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership is turning Israel’s people backwards (regressively; in reverse direction). They should be ashamed of themselves. Be hold the arrogance, cocksure attitude and haughty self-assurance among the nobles (zealots; general authorities) with regard to their idols (false notions; fallacies) that draw attention to Salt Lake’s commands, only to benefit their “Molten Images” (hot, attractive, alluring pretenses contrived to make an indelible impression upon the malleable-minds of Israel’s people) that is so typical of Mormon priesthood leaders. They have made themselves  into the “Gods” of many  Israelite People (rank and file Mormon people)

.

.

18. Beware of religious leaders who are both deaf (senseless) and dumb (have nothing worthwhile to say). Listen up! (pay attention!).  Salt Lake’s prophets, seers and revelators merely  “babble on and on” (spout-nonsense;engage in idle-talk; tell-tales; recite “feel-good” stories),  then  characterize (evaluate; call) their “make-believe” stories  as inspired messages from Latter-day prophets of God.

ENTHUSIASM
They “gush” with sickening enthusiasm, but are without a hint of reality!

19. They gush (over-flow with excitement) because they are absolutely clueless (without a hint of reality) and  “sightless” (uninspired; vision-less; unperceptive; dense; stupid; dim-witted). Their messengers “gush” with sickening enthusiasm  because they are completely indoctrinated (propagandized; converted; brain-washed) and “know with every fiber of their being” that they will pass (be accepted by) Israel’s people, as Jehovah’s chosen servants (deputies; messengers; prophets; spokesmen).

.

.

20. They “gush” (overflow with sentimentality ; play on people’s emotions) in order to close (shut; cover; obscure) the eyes (perception) of the people and act (make a false show) as “Men of Peace”. They can only pretend to be “Jehovah’s Servants. ” They seem (appear)  to be “seers” of many (a myriad of) heavenly things, but they refuse to trouble themselves to “open the eyes and ears” of Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons).  As a result,  Mormon people  are delightfully carefree (unconcerned; untroubled),  but , as to  being defrauded, they don’t “give-a-damn” .
