Reading Isaiah’s Mind Chapter 51 verses 1 – 8

Everlasting Salvation For Zion 1. Listen unto me, those of you who are persecuted (subject to hostility and ill-treatment) because of your righteousness and those who seek The-Lord (Jehovah), Israel’s God.   Point (direct everyone’s attention) to Salt Lake’s idle-talk (foolish and irrelevant-chatter; silly-pronouncements; nonsense; babblings) concerning the “rock” (God; deity) from which Israel’s people were cut (dug; excavated; mined; […]

1. Listen unto me, those of you who are persecuted (subject to hostility and ill-treatment) because of your righteousness and those who seek The-Lord (Jehovah), Israel’s God.   Point (direct everyone’s attention) to Salt Lake’s idle-talk (foolish and irrelevant-chatter; silly-pronouncements; nonsense; babblings) concerning the “rock” (God; deity) from which Israel’s people were cut (dug; excavated; mined; gathered) and the bedrock (foundation; base; core; roots; essence)  from which Israel’s people were quarried (mined; excavated).

large family
When Abraham was all by himself, when I called (appointed) him, then I  blessed (endowed) him and I multiplied-him (made the numbers of his family to increase).

2. Point (direct everyone’s attention) to Salt Lake’s idle-talk (trivial-talk; marginalization; treatment as insignificant or peripheral) regarding Abraham, your eponymous-“ ancestor forefather (after whom you are named;  i.e. you are “Children-of-Abraham”) and regarding Sarah who gave birth to you.  Abraham was by-himself (just himself; alone; without help from anyone) , when I called (appointed) him and blessed (endowed) him and multiplied-him (made the numbers in his family to increase).

3. Surely, Jehovah (God) will comfort Zion (the City of David; “The-City-of-Love”; “Jerusalem”) and will have compassion on all of her ruins (destruction; disintegration) and He will make Jerusalem’s desert (wilderness; “no-man’s-land”; badland; wasteland; desolation; forsakenness; barrenness) as though it were Eden (pleasant; voluptuous; delightful) and her wasteland (unused area of land that has become barren or overgrown) has become just like  a Paradise (“Garden” of God’s”joy.  Then,  gladness and the sound of “Thanksgiving-Songs” will be found in her (Jerusalem;  Zion; The-City-of-Love”).

nubble light 70
“Nubble-Light” York, Maine – I will make my justice (fair-play; just and fair behavior; even-handedness; impartiality) to be the people’s light (agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible; enlightenment; illumination).  

4. Advise Israel’s people (my people;  my nation) to listen (pay close attention; harken) unto Me (Jehovah) and Prick-up their ears (make your ears stand erect as if on the alert) because I will make the Law-of-God* (system of rules created to regulate man’s-behavior) coming from My (Jehovah’s) mind, will go-out (be published; be sent-out; spread; proliferate) everywhere , and I will make my justice (fair-play; just and fair behavior; even-handedness; impartiality) function (operate) as the people’s light (agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible; enlightenment; illumination).   

* Law of GodWhat is the law of God? How does God define the law of God? This question is of great importance, for it deals with our spiritual understanding. God’s laws are the rules of the Kingdom of God and His way of life, and they are divine and perfect in intent, equity and administration. The apostle Paul said God’s “law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good” as well as “spiritual” (Romans 7:12, 14). King David wrote, “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul,” and he went on to describe the beauty and benefits of God’s testimonies, statutes, commandments and judgments—various aspects of biblical law (Psalm 19:7-11). Biblical-laws include a holy system of commandments, statutes and judgments that are meant to be observed by all countries and all people, for God created all people. God’s laws define righteousness and sin. And here is the key: They are always for our benefit (Deuteronomy 6:17-18; 7:12-14; 10:13). God’s laws are not burdensome (Mathew 11:30;  1 John 5:3) despite what many religious leaders may tell you (2 Peter 3:15-16).

arms of God
My arms (offspring; seed) will bring salvation to the nations of the world.

5. My righteousness (character-trait of being morally right or justifiable) is close-at-hand (making its final approach for landing; not far-away; nearby; in the neighborhood; “on your doorstep”; in your vicinity) and my salvation (rescue; deliverance;  reclamation; liberation) ; is “on-the-way” (in the process of arriving; en-route; approaching; forthcoming; in transit). My arms (offspring; seed) will bring salvation to the nations of the world. The islands (people of Salt Lake living in safety, security and carefree luxury) will look (hope; wait) and they will wait-in-hope (anxiously-await; anticipate; look forward to) my arm (offspring; children seed) to bring justice.

lift
Lift your eyes upward to the heavens (those with whom God and His spirit dwell and feel “at-home”) 

6. Lift your eyes upward to the heavens (those with whom God and His spirit dwell and feel “at-home”) Then look at the Earth, (temporary-sphere where man has the opportunity and the time to turn his natural inclinations into permanent (unchangeable, instinctive-behavior-patterns; habits), beneath (at a lower level).  Indeed (if truth be told), the heavens (those with whom God and His spirit dwell and “feel at-home”) will make this generation of Salt Lake’ leadership vanish, just like smoke vanishes and the Earth (temporary-sphere where man has the opportunity and the time to turn his natural inclinations into permanent (unchangeable, instinctive-behavior-patterns; habits) will become worn-out (no longer useful; useless; “Good-for-

verbal abuse
Don’t be afraid of Salt Lake’s reproach (disapproval; strong-criticism; dishonor; condemnation; scorn) and don’t be intimidated (terrified) by Salt Lake’s revilings (assaults with contemptuous and opprobrious language; verbal-abuse). 

7. Listen to me you people who know what is right because “My (Jehovah’s) Law is in your chest  (bosom”).* Don’t be afraid of Salt Lake’s reproach (disapproval; strong-criticism; dishonor; condemnation; scorn) and don’t be intimidated (terrified) by Salt Lake’s revilings (assaults with contemptuous and opprobrious language; verbal-abuse). 

  * My Law is in your heart (chest; bosom)”  – This phrase should be memorized and thoughtfully pondered because it is tantamount to the precise definition of the “Ark of the Covenant” which men have long sought;  searched and  portrayed in popular-culture (“Raiders of the Lost Ark” – 1981 American action-adventure film starring Harrison Ford). The “on-going” search will never produce the results that historians and archaeologists expect because the Ark Of the Covenant is not what historians and archaeologists think (assume; suppose imagine) it to be. The actual definition of the “Ark-of-the-Covenant”is: a person who has Jehovah’s Law dwelling in his Chest (heart; soul).
