Reading Isaiah’s Mind Chapter 47 verses 8-15

lounging 70
Now..listen…….you wanton (pleasure-seeking; shameless; sumptuous-living) Salt Lake creatures, who lounge (lie-about; waste-time; goof-off; goldbrick; relax; take-it-easy; loiter; pass-the-time) in “ease-and-security” while saying to yourselves, “We (Salt Lake’s Melchizedek priesthood leaders)  are all the “Authority” Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) need.

8. Now..listen…….you wanton (pleasure-seeking; shameless; sumptuous-living) Salt Lake creatures, who lounge (lie-about; waste-time; goof-off; goldbrick; relax; take-it-easy; loiter; pass-the-time) in ease-and-security” while saying to themselves ,“We (Salt Lake’s Melchizedek priesthood leaders)  are all the authority Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) need and there isn’t any other authority,  strong (secure; powerful; indestructible) enough to reign-over (rule; govern; control; lead; manage) them.

casting a spell
They (the remnant of Israel’s people) will return to power despite all of Salt Lake’s sorceries (magical-arts) and the potency of its spell-binding-men  (charming-men; enchanting-men).   

9.  However, this generation of Israel’s people will come against Salt Lake’s intoxicated (drunken) leaders. In a single day, they’ll  be violently tossed-out (cast aside; thrown-out; discarded , like an old habit) to bewail (mourn; bemoan; express great regret, disappointment, and bitterness)  over the total loss of their children (followers; devotees; subjects) and let the complete  abandonment (desertion;  withdrawal; giving-up; abdication; forsaking) by their-husband, Jehovah (widowhood) sink-in  (penetrate; are fully understood or realized). They (Israel’s people) will return to power despite all of Salt Lake’s sorceries (magical-arts) and the potency of its spell-binding-men  (charming-men; enchanting-men).

10.  So, you’ve trusted (placed your confidence) in your own evil (wicked; immoral; foul; dishonorable; corrupt; reprobate) priesthood-authority, thinking to yourselves, “There is no man who’s capable of detecting (discerning; perceiving; recognizing) our “supernatural” (occult; sorcerous) activities”.  

Indeed………Salt Lake’s wisdom  (philosophies; sophistication) and Salt Lake’s knowledge (the theoretical understanding) of religion, itself, is utterly misleading them,   when they (Mormonism’s First Presidency) say (think; imagine; suppose) among themselves, “In the end,  there’ll be no other “authority” besides “Ours”.

11. So, disaster will come upon you (Israelite people; rank and file Mormons) without your knowledge (awareness; cognizance) of Salt Lake’s conjurings (performance of tricks that are seemingly magical, typically involving sleight of hand; magic; illusions; charms; enchantments) so, calamity will fall upon you without anything to cover (protect; shelter; shield) you and suddenly catastrophe will come upon you without anyone foreseeing it.

stargazing 70
Melchizedek high-priests divide  (set at variance; alienate) the heavens (Israelites with whom God and his spirit dwell and feel “at-home”) and gaze-at (stare-at; google-at; study; scrutinize; look-fixed-on)  the stars (celebrities of Salt Lake’s headquarters; prophets seers and revelators of Salt Lake’s headquarters) and present what amounts to nothing but self-styled “guess-work” (suppositions; hunches; wishful-thinking) about the future.

12. Keep it up, then… continue with your of magic-spells and your multitude of sorceries, with which presiding Melchizedek high-priests have been preoccupied (involved; wrapped-up; engrossed) since the early-days of Salt Lake’s  overthrow of Israel’s people (rank and file Mormon).  Perhaps their efforts have succeeded to benefit a handful of people here and there……or maybe your efforts have merely succeeded in   “scaring-the-hell-out-of” (intimidating; victimizing; cowing) most of the people.

cock and bull story
This generation of Salt Lake’s Priesthood leadership has completely worn-out Israel’s people because of all its counselors (lawyers) urgently (needing immediate action), trying to make (argue; present) the case that Salt Lake’s alleged (long-standing but unproven) LATTER-DAY-RESTORATION-COCK AND BULL-STORY * is true. 

13. This generation of Salt Lake’s Priesthood leadership has completely worn-out Israel’s people  because of all its counselors (lawyers) urgently (needing immediate action), trying to make (argue; present) their case that Salt Lake’s alleged (long-standing but unproven) LATTER-DAY-RESTORATION-COCK AND BULL-STORY * is  true.   So, why not let all of Salt Lake’s counsellors (lawyers) come forward and we’ll see if they can save you.  Melchizedek high-priests practice dividing  (setting-at-variance; alienating) the heavens (Israelites with whom God and his spirit dwell and feel “at-home”) and they spend their time gazing-at (staring-at; googling-at; studying; scrutinizing; looking-fixed-on)  the Salt Lake’s stars (celebrities;heroes; principals; “house-hold names;news-makers; VIP’s; luminaries;”big-names”) and present what is no more than self-styled guess-work (suppositions; hunches; wishful-thinking) about the future.   Ask yourselves……From-what-source  (by-whose-authority) do these men come and accost (aggressively-approach) you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons)? 

* Cock and Bull Story -It is widely reported that this phrase originated at Stony Stratford (“The Jewel of Milton Keynes“), Buckinghamshire, England. Visitors to Milton Keynes might feel the bar for ‘jewel’ status is set rather low in that region, although Stony Stratford is indeed a rather pleasant market town. Stony Stratford, which name derived from “the stony ford on the Roman road”, is located on the old Roman road of Watling Street, now the A5. In the height of the coaching era – the 18th and early 19th centuries – Stony Stratford was an important stopping-off point for mail and passenger coaches travelling between London and the North of England. This coaching history is the source of the supposed origin of the phrase ‘cock and bull story’. The Cock and the Bull were two of the main coaching inns in the town and the banter and rivalry between groups of travellers is said to have resulted in exaggerated and fanciful stories, which became known as ‘cock and bull stories’. The two hostelries did, and still do,
By now, you may have noticed the ‘widely reported’ and ‘supposed’ adjectives above and picked up that I don’t believe a word of it. It is an appealing story but, regrettably, it is little more than that. There’s no evidence whatsoever to connect the two inns with the phrase, apart from the coincidence of the two names. Whisper it not in Stony Stratford if you want to get out alive, but it’s more likely that the phrase comes from old folk tales that featured magical animals. The early 17th century French term ‘coq-a-l’âne’ meaning: “An incoherent story, which is passed from one person to another”. The  literal translation of ‘du coq à l’âne’ is: “from rooster to jackass”, which nicely fits the meaning of the term. This was later taken up in Scots as “cockalayne”, again with the same meaning. The first citation of ‘cock and bull’ stories in English is from Robert Burton’s The Anatomy of Melancholy, 1621:

burning field
They’ll be burned-up (reduced to ashes; consumed; eaten-up) by fire  and nothing can save them, that is to say, “nothing-can-save-their-souls” from the power of the flames (fires of hell; inferno; blaze) . There will be no leftover burning-embers (small fiery particles thrown off from a fire to alight in ashes; sparks; traces of intense feeling; glimmers of hope) to fight for them or no shining-lights (inspirational celebrities; leaders; twitterpated-Mormons; messengers of Happiness)  giving-thanks-to (praising; smiling internally about; expressing appreciation for) them.  

14. Surely (can there be any doubt?),  This generation of Salt Lake’s priesthood leaders are just-like stubble (dried-up-straw; cut stalks of grain plants left sticking out of the ground after the grain is harvested). They’ll be burned-up (reduced to ashes; consumed; eaten-up) by fire  and nothing can save them, that is to say, “nothing-can-save their-souls” from the power of the flames (fires of hell; inferno; blaze).   There will be no burning-embers (sparks; small fiery particles thrown off from a fire to alight in the ashes; traces of intense- feelings; glimmers of hope) to fight for them or shining-lights (inspirational-celebrities; leaders; twitterpated-Mormons; messengers-of-happiness) giving thanks to (praising; smiling internally about; expressing appreciation for) them.

not for sale
Salt Lake’s General Authorities, for whom you (Israel’s people-rank and file Mormons) are faithfully laboring, have been trafficking (“pimping”; trading-in; dealing-in; buying and selling) you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons) ever-since you were but (only; just) preadolescent-children (youngsters; juveniles; “whippersnappers”; kids).

15. That (being reduced to ashes in an inferno) is all that they can promise you.    Salt Lake’s General Authorities, for whom you (Israel’s people-rank and file Mormons) have been faithfully laboring, have been trafficking (“pimping”; marketing; merchandising;  buying and selling) you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons) ever-since you were but (only; just) pre-adolescent-children (youngsters; juveniles; “whippersnappers”; kids) for the sake of (for the purpose of) double-crossing (deceiving and betraying) Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) with whom they claim (declare; assert) to be cooperating. Remember this……because there is not one man among Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership who can save  (extricate; liberate; deliver; rescue) you.
