Israel, the Chosen 

chosen Bachar is  a noun, meaning “a careful, well thought-out choice”  occasioned by an actual need, i.e. someone or something selected out of a larger group (a very conscious and deliberate choice)  in order to accomplish (fulfill) a specific purpose.  The chosen person or thing has previously been subjected to tests and trials, thus has proven to be the best choice to fulfill a specified purpose. The term “chosen” (adj) or “one who is chosen” is a title of honor . “The chosen thing” is the elite –  the best. Jehovah carefully chooses a family (lineage; bloodline) to perform a specific “religious assignment” or play a specific spiritual-role in the over-all human drama. This choice is not absolute, however, because if the family deviates from the purposes, the title can be revoked. Places can be chosen as well as objects and people. The City of Jerusalem was known by the title,  the place “which Jehovah has chosen” . The title “which Jehovah has chosen” is a formula (idiom; prescription; set-Hebrew-expression; set-of-words) found in (Dt. 12:18, 26 ; 14:25; 15:20; 16: 7,16) indicating a “holy-place”, thus a chosen person , family or object is considered to be holy, as well. Everywhere that bachar occurs in relation to persons, it denotes a choice out of a group ( generally out of the totality of the people). Jehovah has worked on behalf of His people (Israel) so they might become a “peculiar” (uncommon; distinguished) people “from among” and “in relation to”  the peoples of the world.

1. So now…you had better listen-up (pay attention),  Jacob (men who defraud; men who usurp; men who supplant), whom I deliberately chose to misrepresent (falsify; embarrass; be poor ambassadors of ) me,  as a test for “my people” and Israel (men and women who are upright in my eyes) who I’ve chosen for Jacob’s benefit (for Jacob’s sake).  

.

from the womb2. Thus saith the Lord, your “Maker”  and your designer from the womb (from a time before you were born) – your helper (partner; ally;comrade; associate; colleague; companion; friend). Don’t let yourselves be afraid of (intimidated; terrified; overawed; bullied) by  my servant,  Jacob (men who supplant; men who defraud) accompanied by Jeshurun (those who are celebrated as religiously “upright “in the eyes of men; ideal-Mormons) who are “allegedly” (supposedly) chosen by me because of their righteousness.

3.  For (indeed) I am pouring-out (dumping; unloading; emptying; casting) waters (disarray; disorganization; derangement) upon Salt Lake’s men who are covetous of Israel’s birthright (Mormon General Authorities) even as they gush (drip ; overflow; bubble-over; effervesce) with enthusiasm,  all over the Lord’s people and upon Mormon’s and investigators  who are confused (stupefied; members thrown off balance; confounded) by LDS double-talk and nonsense. In spite of this fact, I am pouring out my spirit (Holy Spirit) and my blessing (benediction; boon) upon your (Israel’s) rising-generation (seed; offspring; children; descendants) and upon the children who come-forth from them .

a corral or enclosure surrounded by a stockade fence.
Salt Lake’s priesthood  leadership confines Israel’s People (rank and file Mormons) in a corral or enclosure surrounded by a stockade fence. Faithful Mormon’s tithes and offerings function as sureties (insurance policies; financial-security) for Salt Lake’s future.

4. And they will sprout (bud; spring-up; grow) in-between (amid; in the middle of; amongst; in the midst of) Mormon leadership that currently confines Israel’s people in a stockade (corral; enclosed area; holding-pen) to be exploited as sureties (pledges; collateral ; insurance-policies; guarantees) against (to prevent; to stop) the emergence  (development; flow; bringing forth; drawing) of water (“living water” ; “spiritual-enlightenment”;The “Spirit of God”; the “Spirit of Truth”).

.

5. Some Mormons will naturally bring-to-light (declare; proclaim; ) Jehovah’s direction , while other Mormons  will  announce (pontificate; make proclamations) in the name of (by the authority of) Jacob (Mormon-priesthood-authorities,  who are currently usurping Israel’s birthright) and still others will subscribe (assent to; reconcile themselves to; say “yes” to; give their approval to) Salt Lake’s  counterfeit (illegitimate) priesthood power, supposedly (imagined as; made to look as if it is)  authorized (invested; ordained; certified; legalized; validated) by Jehovah, himself while claiming the honorific title (a title of respect) –  “Israel”,   when referring to themselves.

riding rough shod
As an English  idiom , it generally means “rule by tyranny”.  What was once called rough shod is now called studs or caulks. Long considered routine in three day events, studded shoes are being used increasingly in combined driving, dressage, jumping and, depending on the conditions, trail riding.

6. Thus saith the Lord , the King of Israel’s people and their redeemer (re-purchaser; “next of kin”; avenger), the Lord of Hosts (Heaven’s army). I am the first (“alpha”) and I am the last (“omega”; alpha Α or α and Ω or ω are the first and last letters of the Greek Alphabet, and a “title” of Christ or of God in the Book of Revelation). So, let Israel’s People (rank and file Mormons) declare this  and that apart from me (besides me; other than me),  there are no Gods and absolutely NOT among the spiritually-degenerate Mormon priesthood hierarchy riding roughshod (marked by tyrannical force) over Israel”s People  (rank and file Mormons) from their cozy perches in Salt Lake City.

.

.

7. So, who among Salt Lake’s iconic church-celebrities  is anything like me (can compare himself with me), let him declare himself as such and let him prepare himself for a “Real-Holy-War” with  Me (Jehovah).  Let any one of them (Salt Lake’s General Authorities) tell everyone ( educate-us-all) about what he  knows concerning Israel’s past as well as Israel’s future (destiny ) subsequent to their ancient (primeval; primordial) appointment (choice; designation ; selection ; election) as my people.

Alarmed
Don’t allow yourselves to be alarmed by the braggadocio of  Mormon priesthood leadership

8.  Don’t be alarmed (filled with dread; thrown into a panic) by local Mormon priesthood leader and  don’t be afraid of (intimidated by) Salt Lake’s presiding priesthood authorities. Not so very long ago, I proclaimed to you personally and I spoke directly to your heart (soul) , so now ( at this time) you are qualified  to bear witness of me.  There is no God like or apart from  (besides; other than) Me (Jehovah). There is no adversary (foe; enemy), worthy to be my opponent.

9.  Salt Lake’s priesthood authorities, who manufacture (contrive; concoct; fabricate) Mormon idols (church icons; Mormon celebrities; priesthood heroes),  are worthless (spiritually desolate; inconsequential; base; “no-good”; depraved),  for they are merely delighting-in (enjoying; reveling-in; “getting a kick out of “;  “smacking their lips over”) their own selves (self-images),  and have no “real” (eternal ) worth (quality; integrity; goodness; virtue; distinction). They only bear witness of themselves. They see (perceive; prophesy;  discern; understand; comprehend; reveal) absolutely nothing of heaven or hell and they know ( are aware of ; are familiar with)  absolutely nothing,  concerning Jehovah, so that ( to the end that) they are put to shame (ought to be ashamed of themselves).

schlemiel
Salt Lake’s anointed ones are ordained to become “Schlemiels” , i.e. “Unlucky Bunglers”

10. Whosoever attempts to determine (decide; ordain; decree; adjudge) certain (special; specific; particular) men to be gods (icons; celebrities; heroes ) of men, winds up ordaining them to become abject (base; vile; low-minded; unprincipled) “failures” (unsuccessful men; losers; duds;  “schlemiels” – yiddish for unlucky bunglers and chumps) in  service to  The Most High God (Jehovah).
