Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter 4 – verses 1-6** ūüĎć

1.¬†In our¬†day¬†(time; era; generation)¬†plenty¬†(lots; a “Gob-stopping” number) of¬†Israelite women¬†(Mormon-women)¬†are being¬†sealed (given; bound; fastened; hitched; married)¬† to Salt Lake’s General Priesthood Authorities¬†(Nephilim; Ba’als; Lords and Masters;¬†Melchizedek-high-priests)¬†in Salt Lake City, so Salt Lake headquarters can entice us to believe¬†the¬†virtual (tacit;¬† unspoken)¬†“Bacchanalia”¬† ¬†(orgy; binge) of sexual-pleasure,¬† that Israelite men may¬†routinely¬†enjoy (reap the benefits of; participate in; take pleasure in; have a good time with; revel in; boast of),¬† as Melchizedek High-Priests, what’s more, the¬†“handy”¬†(“special”)¬†garmentImage result for Here's the thing gif (smokescreen; “cover-up”; holy underwear;¬† pretext) of Authority” that we¬†and our wives are commanded to¬†“wear” (be clothed in) at¬†all times (24/7).¬†¬†

“So, Here’s the thing” (there’s a problem)… We want your¬†(Israel’s)¬†¬†name (authority; dominion; jurisdiction)¬†to be associated with every single thing that we do or say.¬†¬†

This will¬†take-away¬†(remove; “get rid of”; eliminate) the shameful¬†reproach (disgrace; discredit) that has for so long¬† been linked¬†(imputed)¬†to¬†our (Salt Lake’s)¬†family (bloodline; lineage; dynasty; line of hereditary rulers).¬†¬†¬†¬† ¬† ¬†

 

 

The Tzemach (branch) of the Lord

2.¬†During¬†this¬†(our)¬†generation, “A-new-branch *¬†(“New Growth”; “The-Tzemach”; “a new Bud”; “a new¬† Sprout”)¬†of Jehovah will show (manifest; demonstrate; prove; reveal) itself to be, not just¬†my (Jehovah’s)¬†familyImage result for crown,¬†¬†but also my chief-administrators¬†(top-agents¬†legally appointed to be managers and distributors) of Jehovah’s¬†¬†“Glory” (fame; exaltation).¬† They are the culmination (fruit) of Jehovah’s¬†labors¬†(efforts; endeavors) to:

(a)¬†point-out (call attention to) the arrogance (pomp; pride) characterized by¬†this-Earth” (“this temporary sphere of existence, that provides sufficient time and opportunity to transform our men’s natural inclinations into unbreakable habits based on instinct) and……

(b)¬†transfer (pass the possession of)¬† the “Tiphereth”¬†(“crown”; headdress worn by¬† a monarch; glory; honor; majesty) to the survivors (remnant) of Israel.¬†

*¬†“Branch” Tzemach in Hebrew, means: “Daughter”;¬†“Scion”, “Twig” or “Sprout”; “shoot”.¬†¬†In a concrete horticultural sense, it refers to a sucker (shoot that originates from buds on the root systems, that can grow into new full size trees genetically identical to the parent). “Branch” (Tzemach) means¬†¬†“New¬†(fresh)¬†Life”¬†¬†that sprouts, grows,¬† and develops as a continuation (successor) of the original tree-stock.
Related imageIsaiah uses¬†Tzemach¬†as a metaphor, referring to¬†new¬†(fresh)¬†growth¬†(development) originating from Israel’s¬†family-tree¬†(pedigree; lineage; bloodline; dynasty; line of hereditary rulers). Genetically identical to the parent tree,¬† it has¬†sprung-forth, out of the¬†base¬†(trunk; main-stem; body; core; stock)¬†of the¬†“felled”¬†(cut-down; fallen; stricken; prostrated)¬†and root system of¬† the family-tree¬†(pedigree;¬† bloodline;¬† lineage, dynasty; line of hereditary-rulers)¬†of Israel’s leading clan,¬†Judah¬†(“Praise and giving-thanks”).¬†It has sprouted, is maturing and will soon produce¬†branches¬†(daughters)¬†of its own.¬†“As one person dies, another person is born upon the earth”¬†(Job 8:19).¬†This metaphor asserts that generations of men can be compared to leaves sprouting forth on trees:¬†‚Äúone dies and another leaf sprouts‚ÄĚ. The substance (essence) of¬†Tzemach¬†is¬†“something that sprouts and grows”, i.e.¬†‚Äúnew-growth‚ÄĚ. According to Jeremiah and Zechariah,¬†Tzemach¬†is a¬†‚ÄúMessianic-Title”.¬†¬†(Jeremiah 23:5) states that Jehovah will raise-up¬† a¬†Tzemach-Saddiq¬†(righteous-branch) as¬†successors of the throne of David, i.e. a¬†Tzemach-Saddiq¬†(righteous-branch) is comingforth to reign as the legitimate monarch’s of Israel’s people in order to execute justice and righteousness.
Tzemach-Saddiq¬†appears in¬†a 3rd-century Phoenician inscription, and it denotes a¬†‚Äúmature-sprouts‚Ä̬†or¬†‚Äúlegitimate heirs‚ÄĚ.¬†The reference is to legitimate rulers belonging to the¬†Dynasty¬†(family; line of hereditary rulers)¬†of King David.
In (Zechariah 3:8)¬†¬†Tzemach¬†is a technical term. Here, Jehovah promises to¬†bring forth¬†(give birth to; present)¬†‚ÄúThe branch.‚Ä̬†(Tzemah)¬†as “His-collective-Servant” ‚Äst‚ÄúThe-branch.‚Ä̬†designates a¬†new generation of an ancient¬†Royal-Family¬†(Royal-Lineage; Royal-Bloodline; royal-Dynasty; Royal-Line of hereditary rulers)¬†

 

 

 

 

3.¬†The¬†Remnant¬†*of Israel¬†dwells¬†(resides; lives; thrives; survives)¬†in the midstMoses of¬†“Zion”¬†**¬†(those who’ve spent 40+ years wandering aimlessly in disfavor, searching for “Living Water”, i.e. “the Spirit of God”).

¬†¬†And……The “Remnant of¬†Israel” is¬†pointing¬†(directing attention)¬†to¬†this¬†(our)¬†extraordinary¬†¬†(remarkable; very-unusual)¬†generation¬†to¬†safeguard¬†(protect) legitimate-authority.¬† The protection of legitimate-authority¬†begins¬†(starts; commences)¬†with¬†saints¬†(Holy-Ones; Angels)¬†who are¬†characterized¬†(identified; defined; shaped; distinguished)¬†by¬†Jerusalem¬†(“teachings of Peace and Salvation”) ……¬†

*¬†Remnant¬†– “leftovers”; “what’s left” – This concrete meaning is used in connection with disasters, for example, floods, famines, and war, which force a¬†family¬†(house; bloodline; lineage; dynasty; line of hereditary rulers)¬†or larger group of people to the edge of their existence. A clear theological meaning attaches to this notion of “that which remains or is left behind” when it refers to a group of in a biblical context since such contexts also involve questions of the continuity of tradition or, even more importantly, of legitimate authority and identity in reference to membership in a community.
“A Believing Minority”¬†– the rescue of a¬†“faithful remnant”¬†can also be viewed as a principle of divine action toward human communities, something clearly emerging in the¬†Flood-Narrative¬†(Gen. 6-9)¬†with its ancient Near-East background.¬† Here, the survival of Noah’s family during a global catastrophe demonstrates the principle of rescue from divine judgment. Once the political and sociological weight of the claim to the status of remnant acquired central significance in the religious life of the Jews, earlier narrative traditions were then interpreted in light of this development.
.**¬†Zion¬†–¬†(Hebrew: ◊¶÷ī◊ô÷ľ◊ē÷Ļ◊ü‚Äé ŠĻĘ√ģyŇćn, modern Tsiyyon; also transliterated Sion, Sayon, Syon, Tzion, Tsion) is a synonym for “New Jerusalem” as well as for the biblical Land of Israel as a whole. To be Precise,¬† “Zion” is the¬†appellation¬†(nickname)¬†for Israelites who’ve spent 40+ years wandering in an aimless way, suffering social-disfavor, while searching for “Living Water”, i.e. “the Spirit of God”)

6. The misty-canopy will provide a shade and a refuge for Israel‚Äôs people from the “Storm”¬†(maelstrom; controversy) swirling¬†around them,¬†¬†as well as a hiding place from wicked-men (General Authorities) of Salt Lake¬† who would¬†draw (drag; suck) them into the “War-of-Words(debate; contest; firestorm; raging-controversy)¬†that has¬†embroiled¬†(thrown into disorder and confusion)¬†¬†Salt Lake’s Melchizedek Priesthood leadership along with the rank and file membership of the Mormon church. The misty canopy overhead will provide Israel’s people a¬†refuge¬†(safe-haven) from the Salt Lake’s¬†maniacal¬†(demonic)¬†General Authorities who’ve taken-over¬†(commandeered; seized; arrogated)¬†Israel’s throne¬† (dominion; sovereignty; reign; seat of command) and¬†rule like Pharaohs (oppressive-taskmasters) over Israel’s People from Church headquarters in Salt Lake City.Image result for maelstrom gif

 

¬†Thank God that Israel’s people need not be sucked into the Salt Lake’s bitter-maelstrom¬†(vortex; gulf; whirlpool)¬†of controversy.¬† ¬†¬†
