snail
God’s glory will “bring up the rear” (inspire-dawdlers; rally-stragglers; encourage-“slow-movers”) of Israel’s people.

8. From then on  (at which point; therefore; there-upon; hence)your (Israel’s; rank and file Mormon’s) light  (illumination; brilliance goodness; intelligence;  enlightenment) will break-forth (burst-out-suddenly; emerge) and the soundness (strength and vigor) of your (Israel’s) make-up  (character; nature; personality; psyche) will quickly (shortly; promptly; swiftly) bud (be brought into operation for the first time) and go-before (open the door for;  proceed; introduce; herald; pave the way for; usheryou (Israel’s people) and the righteousness (moral-rectitude)  of God’s glory (high renown or honor won by notable achievements) will “bring up your rear” (inspire-dawdlers; rally-stragglers; encourage-“slow-pokes”).

staff
You must turn-away (reject; refuse)  the staff* (symbol of authority; dominion and jurisdiction) which is Mormonism’s yoke (covenant) of subjugation (slavery; bondage; servitude) from your midst (homes;  families; mainstream). It is  imposed (forced; foisted; inflicted; urged) upon Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) by Salt Lake’s presiding  Melchizedek Priesthood Authorities.

9. Then (from then on), you will call and Jehovah will answer (respond). You will cry for help and Jehovah will declare (reveal) “Here I am” ………….only if (Oh-that; would-that) you (Israel’s people) will turn-away (thrust-out; expel; dismiss; remove; banish) from your midst (homes families; mainstream; heart; bosom),  the staff* (symbol of authority; dominion and jurisdiction) which is  Mormonism’s yoke (harness; collar) of subjugation (slavery; bondage; servitude) imposed (forced; foisted; inflicted; urged) upon you (Israel’s people) by Salt Lake’s presiding (controlling; supervising; governing) Melchizedek Priesthood Authorities.

* staff –(scepter; authority; stick; rod; bar) After the fear and shock of the God of the universe introducing Himself to Moses, God tells Moses about the mission He has for him to free the people of Egypt. Moses is not at all interested in His proposition. He says Pharaoh will not take him seriously and argues with God about the whole idea. I am sure Moses remembers He is a wanted man in Egypt. Then God does something remarkable. He asks Moses an important question: Then the LORD said to him, “What is that in your hand?”(Exodus 4:2). A few verses later, he explains the importance of what is in his hand.But take this staff (which represents authority; dominion; jurisdiction), that you are holding in your very own hand,  so you can perform miraculous signs with it.”(Exodus 4:17) A few verses later, we discover Moses’ staff is no longer Moses’s staff, but it is the “God’s staff.” So Moses took his wife and sons, put them on a donkey and started back to Egypt. And he took the staff of God in his hand (Exodus 4:20).

men
 You (Mormon priesthood leaders) have spend (squandered; wasted; dissipated;  exhausted; traded) your souls (lives, minds, hearts, selves, wills, persons, active-pursuits) for (for the sake of ; in view-of; in order to achieve; in exchange for) an empty-stomach** (desolate-life) and an appetite (natural desire to satisfy a bodily need) for oppressing (abusing; persecuting; afflicting) Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons).

10. You (Mormon priesthood leaders) have spent (sold; squandered; wasted; dissipated;  exhausted; traded) your souls (selves) for (in exchange for) an empty-stomach** (unfulfilled-life) and an appetite (hunger) for oppressing (persecuting) Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons).   You (Mormon priesthood leaders) are sworn (bound by an oath) to persist (continue firmly or obstinately) in oppressing (bringing-down; discouraging; subjugating) Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) while you rise (move from a lower position to a higher one)  particularly (especially; principally) “in-the-dark”* (during the absence-of light) and see yourselves (view yourselves; consider yourselves as; regard yourselves) as Israel’s “Zohars” (“brightest-lights”).

basking
You’ll become  satisfied (content; triumphant; confident;determined; definite; sure; certain; convinced) by basking-in  (reveling in and making the most of) light (intelligence; understanding of a problem or mystery; enlightenment) emanating from the Son of God.

11.  But, Jehovah will always guide you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons), so you’ll become  satisfied (content; triumphant; confident;determined; definite; sure; certain; convinced) by basking-in  (reveling in and making the most of) light (intelligence; understanding of a problem or mystery; enlightenment) emanating from the Son of God. He (Jehovah) will strengthen your souls and your frames  and you (Israel’s people)  will become very much like a garden (vineyard; orchard) ….well-watered (drinking-deeply everyday  from the well of God’s instruction and finding satisfaction and joy in Christ alone) and like the fountainhead; original-source) whose water (life-giving substance; inspiration) will never fail this generation.

corralled
Salt Lake’s  Priesthood Authorities invite you (Israel’s people) to assemble (gather together in one place for a common purpose)….and be enclosed (hedged; fenced) behind a impenetrable-wall and to be corralled   (confined; incarcerated) by a fence constructed far and wide (everywhere; near and far; all over the map; in all places; in every direction; the world over.

12. So, Because of some (a relative few) of you (Israel’s people), a dry-place (a place which has been laid waste; desolate-place) is building  a foundation (justification for or reasoning behind) generation after generation authorized (allowed; sanctioned; permitted) to restrain  (stop; control) you (Israel’s people) , then invite you to assemble (gather together in one place for a common purpose)….and be enclosed (hedged; fenced) behind a impenetrable-wall or corralled   (confined; incarcerated) by a fence spreading far and wide (everywhere; near and far; all over the map; in all places; in every direction; the world over) subsequent to (following; proceeding from; resulting from)  being broken into pieces (dissolved; dispersed; scattered; disbanded; fragmented; broken-up; separated) to be trodden by the feet as a means to secure (get hold of; gain long-lasting possession of “Authority” (a famous-name and reputation; “a-big-mark-in-the-world”) to be celebrated (greatly admired; renowned).

13. The “glue” (“Mother”; Melchizedek Priesthood Organization; binding-agent of Mormonism that holds everything and everyone together) that holds everything about Mormonism together) is turning (down-playing; marginalizing; rejecting; reversing-direction; perverting; turning it back on; ignoring; denying) the reason (Old-Testament-explanation; rationale; reasoning; thinking; justification; legal-grounds) for observing “Shabbath”  (a day of “rest” from labor). Salt Lake cunningly (in a clever and deceitful way) chooses this “Course-Of-Action” (avenue; policy; scheme) as a means to slander (defame; malign; blacken; calumniate) Israel’sname” (reputation; prestige; esteem; stature; repute; good-name) in the eyes (opinion; estimation; view; judgment; perception) of today’s people around the world, thus, preparing (readying; warming-up) the minds (judgments; sensibilities; intellectual-capabilities) of people throughout the modern (latter-day; contemporary) world,  so that Salt Lake’s Melchizedek High-priests can easily (without-question; deftly; comfortably; effortlessly) assume-possession (take-over; appropriate; claim) Israel’s authority (“good-name”; historic-reputation; “Mark in the World”; dominion; jurisdiction). Their plan is to become “Precious” (beloved; adored; darlings; “special”) to Jehovah’s Israelite-people (rank and file Mormons; Saints), i.e. “Big-Shot” (glorified; honored; illustrious) General-Priesthood Authorities.   So,  men of weight (prominence; significance; gravity; consequence) and their conspicuous

champions
Then,  just like Salt Lake’s prophets seers and revelators,  you (Israel’s people;rank and file Mormons), too, can point (direct everyone’s attention) to your Authority (famous-name; “historic-reputation”; dominion; jurisdiction) in “High-places”(Mormon Leadership) amidst Salt Lake’s world-wide Kingdom (realm; domain) of Canaanite Ba’als (gods; lords; masters) and just like Salt Lake’s prophets seers and revelators, point (direct; lead; guide) everyone to sustain (give-support to;  show-confidence in) your authority (name; reputation). 

(prominent; famous) names (reputations; marks; imports; standings; stature) are plotting-measures (taking-steps; contriving-strategies)  against you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons) because of things (the words of God; commandments)  that they (themselves) are defiling (desecrating; violating). They set-about to charm (seduce; enchant; spell-bind; enthrall; fascinate) you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons), while they utilize (make practical and effective use of) the “Book of Mormon” in an effort to invalidate (marginalize; over-rule; discredit) “The-Word-of-God” (The Torah; The Bible; both the Old and New Testaments). Then, (subsequently) you (Israel’s people;rank and file Mormons) are shown-how (encouraged; emboldened; motivated) to live-softly (foolishly; mindlessly; brainlessly),  once you’ve been   relieved (freed; released) from the troubling burdens (requirements; obligations) imposed upon you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons) by Jehovah’s Old Testament Prophets.

stolen goods
The “Stolen-Goods”, which Salt Lake is blatantly flaunting (parading; showing-off) before the world as their own, are, in fact, the  Birthrights (lawful-inheritances) of Israel’s people.  

14. Then,  just like Salt Lake’s counterfeit (made in exact imitation of something valuable or important with the intention to deceive or defraud; fake; bogus; substitute;phony) ) prophets seers and revelators,  you (Israel’s people;rank and file Mormons), too, can point (direct everyone’s attention) to your Authority (famous-name; “illustrious-reputation”; dominion; jurisdiction) in “High-places”(top-priesthood-positions) amidst Salt Lake’s world-wide Kingdom (realm; domain) of Canaanite Ba’als (gods; “lords and masters”) and point (give force or emphasis to) sustaining (giving-support to;  showing-confidence in) your authority.   Indeed, your (Israel’s people’s) inherent (inborn) Authority (good-name and illustrious reputation in the world)  constitute the “Stolen-goods” (birthright)  which is being dishonestly “passed-off” as Salt Lake’s property by descendants of Jacob (a lineage of defrauders). The mouth of the Lord,  (Jehovah) has spoken it.
