Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter 44 – verses 1 – 13

1. Now listen (hear this)…Jacob (a lineage of defrauders and cheats)..you’re supposed to be (generally assumed or believed to be so, but are not) my servants and  Israel’s people, who are my chosen (having been selected as the best or most appropriate)  authorities because they have been proven (put to the test) in the furnace of affliction right under the […]
under their very noses
“Under their very noses “is an idiomatic phrase meaning: in a place that you can clearly see; apparently obviously.

1. Now listen (hear this)…Jacob (a lineage of defrauders and cheats)..you’re supposed to be (generally assumed or believed to be so, but are not) my servants and  Israel’s people, who are my chosen (having been selected as the best or most appropriate)  authorities because they have been proven (put to the test) in the furnace of affliction right under the noses (they fail to notice even though they should see it; in plain sight) of Jacob’s people.

exercise authority
To Salt Lake’s priesthood leaders, exercising  authority means: “to be the Boss and TV star!”

2. “Thus saith the Lord” …you maker and the one forming you in ” the womb” (your mother’s belly; “before you were born”). He will help-you (make it easier for you to do something by offering His might and resources). Don’t be afraid of the servants of Jacob (a lineage of defrauders and liars) and those who strive to be upright in the eyes of this generation of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership as a means to prove (produce evidence;  and proof; show beyond a doubt; demonstrate) that “my-authority” is held (exercised; possessed; wielded) by them.

win-breakers
Wind-break (shelter-belts) A windbreak (shelterbelt) is a plantation usually made up of one or more rows of trees or shrubs planted in such a manner as to provide shelter from the cold-relentless-winds and to protect Israel’s soil (territory; domain) from erosion (gradual destruction or diminution)

Pharisees
Like the Pharisees of Jesus Christ’s era, Christ, Salt Lake’s presiding priesthood authorities love the praises (adoration; acclaim; tribute) of men.

5. This Salt Lake gang (organized group of criminals), privately (secretly; off-camera; behind-closed-doors; behind the “green” curtain) crown (install; enthrone) themselves as“Israel’s Righteous-Kings”  Then, they illegally prescribe (state-authoritatively, i.e.”as-a-rule”) their commands)  should be carried out (obeyed; heeded) in-the-name (by-the-authority; with-the-permission) of Jehovah. But in-public (so as to be seen of men; in front to TV camers; in the print-media) they behave like hypocrites (Pharisees; dissemblers; frauds; tricksters; plaster-saints; “self-righteous-bastards”; pretenders)  and eulogize  (extol; glorify; celebrate; pay-tribute; magnify; acclaim; sing-the-priaises-of) Israel.

.

The Lord, (Jehovah), not idols 

.

alpha and omega
Alpha and Omega…the first and the last!

I am the first (beginning; dawn commencement; starting-point; origination) and I am the last (conclusion; completion; termination; ending;  ultimate) and apart from (except-for; besides; aside from; other than) Me (Jehovah), there is no God.”

7. So, whosoever attempts to mock (pretend-to-be-like; impersonate; mimic; imitate) me, come forward with your proof and please…….lay-out (explain or describe) your “Grand-Plan” (great-concept; “impressive-initiative”; grand-design) to Me (Jehovah) that you claim comes from the command (authoritative-order; direction; bidding; request) of ancient people having and holding (connected-with; closely-associated-with) God’s authority and wherein (in-what-way; how; in-what-way) authority was “returned” (Salt Lake’s priests-claim…”restored”) to their forefathers (pioneer-ancestors) in the last-Days*.   They must “cut-it-out” (“stop-saying-that”; stifle-yourself,-Edith!). It’s a cheap (contemptible; unprincipled; shameful) and dishonest (corrupt; fraudulent; double-dealing) way to incentivise (rouse; spur; hound; badger; prompt; encourage; urge; drive;  goad; incite; prod; motivate) Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) to do what Salt Lake wants them to do, by men who are mistakenly supposed (assumed; believed) to be Jehovah’s good shepherds, leading (guiding) Israel’s sheep.  Don’t be alarmed and don’t be dismayed.  “From-Of-Old” (starting long ago; from-eternity; from the beginning; from the days of “Genesis”; from a long time-ago) your (Israel’s) authority was proclaimed (trumpeted; declared-officially; made known) throughout the

ancient world and your authority was foretold (reported; predicted; prophesied; spoken of; told-of) by Jehovah’s prophets so…… you see…..you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons) are my modern (current; latter-day; present) witnesses (corroborating eye-witnesses; testifiers; attestors; observers; on-lookers) ….are you not?  You already know that there is no “rock” (refuge; strength; hiding-place; security; safety; asylum; sanctuary) without an “on-going” (working; continuing; still-in-progress; uninterrupted; non-stop; growing; unfinished; experiential)  knowledge-of (testimony-of; familiar-acquaintance-with; intimate-communion-with; awareness of ) Me (Jehovah).

* last days –This and similar expressions, such as “the final part of the days,” are used in Bible prophecy to refer to the time when “historical events would reach a final climax”. (Eze. 38:16; Dan.10:14; Acts 2:17).  Depending on the nature of the prophecy, this may be a period covering just a few years or many. Most notably, the Bible uses this term regarding “the last days” of the present system of things, during Jesus’ invisible presence.​—( 2-Timothy 3:1; Jas. 5:3; 2-Peter 3:3).

9.  All of Salt Lake’s priesthood leaders are idol-makers……“nothings” (nobodies; person of no importance or authority). The prophets and apostles, who Salt Lake headquarters calls chosen (the “finest”; top-quality; special; first-rate; superior),  have no worth (“are piles of poop”; are of no value; have no use; have no virtue; have no significance; have no merit; have no class; have no estimation) because Salt Lake’s so-called “Especial-Witnesses” have seen (witnessed; observed) absolutely nothing,  so they know (comprehend; are aware of) absolutely nothing and they bring absolute-shame (ignomy; indignity; embarrassment) upon themselves.

* tools – Men with a hugely over-inflated egos, who,  in an attempt to get un-due attention for himself, acts like a jackass, because, in his deluded state, he thinks it’s going to make him look powerful or make others want to be like him. These men may even insincerely apologize later on, but only in an attempt to get more attention, or to excuse theirhis blatantly intentional, and unrepentantly tool-ish behavior.

13.  Salt Lake’s craftsmen of spiritual “Dead-wood” bend (twist; warp; distort; pervert; deform; stretch; turn-aside) the rules (laws of God).

laying a sidewalk

Oak wood is very resistant to insect and fungal attack because of its high-tannin-content), so they’ll be everlasting-loyal-examples of Salt Lake’s leadership among the ordinary (having no special or distinctive features; common; without special rank or position) trees

sidewalk
Mormon priesthood leadership taking a casual stroll on a sidewalk made of asphalt (pavement-mix; Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons)

comfy
Because they are intimately associated with Jehovah, Israel’s people are naturally comfortable, cozy and snug.

These and many other notions are fabricated by Salt Lake specifically to become objects of Mormon worship……then,  they worship them, making Salt Lake’s  “Pipe-dreams” their idols to be celebrated and worshipped as ideals (things regarded as perfect) and paragons to be  sought after.

16. Salt Lake burns (enflames; ignites; sets-afire; kindles; sets-on-fire; excites) half of Israel’s people with passion (strong and barely controllable emotion) of Mormonism
